This weekend I gathered with a group of friends to celebrate the Fall Equinox. It was an amazing ceremony that we held on Friday evening at sunset, and the days following were life changing. To tell the truth the whole week leading up to the Equinox were really hard for me and I had to face a lot of fears. Interestingly facing my own darkness seemed to go hand in hand with what the Fall Equinox is all about.
Here is an article on the esoteric meaning behind the Equinox. Ancient Sacred Sites Reveal Their Esoteric Message at the Autumn Equinox.
I love celebrating the Equinox and the Solstices. It feels like being in touch with the earth, the universe and the secret mysteries of life.
I hope to post a video from the ceremony soon. Did any of you celebrate the Equinox?
I’m enjoying my last few days in Norway before my vacation ends. Life is very different here. Everything is quiet and close to nature. I’m taking in the silence with my whole being and it’s so soothing. It’s been raining a lot, but I don’t mind as I find the rain to be very refreshing. Perhaps I haven’t been here long enough to tire of it.
I’ve been making wild rose honey. In another post I write about How to Make Rose Honey. Rose honey is one of my favorite treats. It is delicious and so lovely. Rose is after all the flower of love, and I feel that eating rose honey is like taking in a little bit of that sweet love. I’ve gone through a lot of grief in my life and I feel rose is very helpful in opening up my heart again. It’s a wonderful food to give yourself if you feel you need some extra care, or perhaps you can give a jar of rose honey to someone you care about.
