The Morning Blessing: Autumnal Equinox

This week the sun crossed over the equator heralding the arrival of Fall, we experienced one of Nature's phenomena, the Autumnal Equinox, when the northern and southern hemispheres receive the same amount of sunlight and the day and night are of equal length. As the long summer days (northern hemisphere) are transformed into the shorter days of Fall and Winter, Nature slows down, shedding and releasing. It is the time of the harvest, when we reap what was sown and planted in Spring, a harvesting of resources in preparation for the next season, and, with gratitude, a letting go of that which is no longer needed.

The equinox is also considered a time for reflection, considering what we have harvested in our lives and just how receptive we are to welcoming change. Nature serves as a constant reminder that change is the way that more Life is expressed-a tree must release its leaves in order for the next cycle to begin-a yielding must occur for the new to emerge. Sometimes change appears as loss, breakdown of existing structures or illness and we become fearful or erroneously presume that something is wrong, not turning out the way we planned it. Shifting our perception of change from one of fear or loss of control to an avenue for expansion and transformation creates the space for Spirit to bring forth the greatest good imaginable.

Can you imagine how it could be if you always trusted Life? What if you happily released that which no longer served the highest vision of your life at the first moments notice shedding the outworn and the outgrown? As we are reminded that all things have their season, consider embracing change as a way of life, as an activity of your consciousness, a constant invitation to keep yourself open to the infinite, endless possibilities that beckon to you.

After all, Change is God's middle name,

Rev. Angela

Blessing:


I am the Living Source. I am the consciousness of Oneness living in
a physical domain. I am part of a beautiful tapestry called Earth Creation
that floats within the universal order of All That Is. My being transmits
love from the inside out, as I attune to the Perfect Presence of inner peace
that  penetrates all primal life.
 
Today I live as the spiritual ideal that has the wisdom and power to dispel
all destructive thoughts and energies that propose to disturb my worldly
space. I commune with the elixir of Spirit that palpitates from the inherent
core of my being. Reaching this heart of spirit, I consciously release its
emanations allowing this essence to burst forth in my life. The components
of love, peace, and truth that I embody shall level all concurrents of negativity
I meet and transmute it into the cosmic light of Oneness.
 
Maintaining a respect for the Divinity in all, I celebrate the Truth that everyone
and everything in my life is blessing and benefiting me today and always. I
believe that man and all his acts are the individualization of God, and as such
the people, and all they bring into my world is good, loving, joyous, and kind.
I live this day worthy of the Infinite Thinker that is expressing through me.
And so it is.
