Autumn Equinox and Harvest Meditation
Autumn is harvest time in the Northern Hemisphere, and a time to reflect on what we have reaped in our lives through our actions.The signposts of changing seasons mark opportunities to meditate and reflect on what is important to us.
To begin a harvest meditation sit straight, eyes closed, hands in lap and take a few even breaths to settle down. For example - breathe in 2 counts; breathe out 2 counts; breathe in 2 counts and continue.
Begin thinking with appreciation on what you have harvested in your life. If you have a long-range goal, break it into manageable pieces - little steps to success.
Reflect that each positive step leads to another in kind, and builds a life full of contentment and happiness. And what greater reward could anyone reap in the harvest of life, then being able to see a bounty of harmony and peace!
Reflect that we are all interrelated and by helping one another attain goals by giving encouragement we are adding to the overall world success.
To end your meditation, take a deep inhalation and slowly release it. With the release let go of barriers to experiencing the full enjoyment of your achievements.
Stretch out and go on with your day, light and recharged.
The equinox is a time of even hours of night in day in both hemispheres. Let's take advantage of the time where we on the planet all have this in common to dwell on our sameness as one large family of humanity.
