Tilt and balance

???????????Today is the first day of fall in the northern hemisphere. The celestial event that marks this transition is called an “equinox,” and happens twice every year, around March 21 and September 21.  An equinox occurs when day and night are of equal length, which happens when the Earth’s pole tilts neither away from, nor towards the Sun.  It’s the time when our planet is perfectly balanced.

Can you feel it?

If not, breathe deeply, then pause for a moment to take advantage of this celestial event and to reflect on whether or not your life is in balance by asking yourself two simple questions that may send you spinning in a new and celestially inspired direction:

  1. Is your life rotating around what really matters to you?
  2. Is your life tilting toward or away from your dreams?

If your life is in balance and is circling your priorities, savor and celebrate it!

If your life isn’t going in the direction you’d like, take a moment to congratulate yourself for being honest about your situation – a huge first step. Next, share encouraging words with yourself that reinforce the fact that change is possible – “I can do this!”  “I’ve made changes before, and I can do it again.” And then, remind yourself that change, just like the seasons, takes time but is perfectly natural. Leaf Tilt away

You can do it! I know you can. Start planning your changes today, so six months from now when the Earth’s axis is tilting toward the sun, your life is tilted toward your dreams!

Who you are today, is no reflection of who you can become . . .

Where you are today, does not determine where you can go.

Change is always possible.

We all blossom in different ways at different times.

Be patient with yourself.

And, keep moving in the direction of your dreams.

Beginnings and balance

Patrice Koerper  Life Coach Wishful Thinking DaffodilsSpring is just days away! On March 20, when the sun crosses the celestial equator (the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator from south to north) the spring equinox will occur.

That’s the moment day and night are equal length, because the Earth’s axis tilts neither away from nor towards the Sun. It is the time when our planet is perfectly balanced.

Why not mark March 20th as the day for new beginnings and balance in your life?

What have you been wanting to do, but haven’t done? How can you begin that process?

Baby steps count: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. (Lao-tzu.) Where will your journey take you?

Or perhaps, you need a day, an hour, or a moment to simply contemplate achieving more balance in your life – to consider new ways to blend work and play or doing for others and doing for yourself.

I’m taking my commitment to balance and new beginnings more seriously than ever this year by a spending a month volunteering and living at a monastery. The experience has been amazing thus far, and quickly reminded me that the first step to beginnings and balance is believing they are possible. I first contemplated this experience almost ten years ago, and at that time it seemed like an impossible dream, but I dreamt it anyway! My life has taken me on many wonderful “impossible” journeys since then, and now seems to have come full circle as I find myself enjoying life here as the spring equinox prepares to unfold.

Patrice Koerper  Life Coach Wishful Thinking Your whole world in your handsEach of us, truly holds our world in our hands. Don’t be afraid to dream.

What will your first step be? If this spring you do nothing more than to simply think about beginnings and balance or to consider creating the life you really want, know that you have taken the most important step, the first one. You are moving in the right direction, now keep going . . .
