Summer is waning and fall is in the air and the energies are definitely shifting into that “Back to School” mode. While the early portion of the month of September often continues to have a summery feeling, we already can sense (at least here in the Northeast) an early Autumn coming. During this month we have back to school, harvest celebrations, the somber 9/11 and the Autumn Equinox on 9/21. September is a time where you are invited to check in on where you are at. What were the gifts of summer this year? What did you wish you had done? Or what do you wish you had done more of? Now is the time to write in your calendar for next year some reminders about this. I find this a powerful practice for myself as I often can forget how fleeting the gifts of summer really are.
As we exchange lawn mowers for rakes and bring in the final part of the harvest, thanking the Earth for all her gifts, we are reminded that now is a wonderful time to acknowledge that we reap what we sow. What were the seeds you planted in spring in your spiritual life and have they come to fruition? To that end, I am offering another Sound Healing Meditation Circle with Crystal Harp on Sunday September 15th
