As this podcast goes to air, we have been moving through the moon and the start of spring, a time of new beginnings and fresh starts.
This cosmic time is clearing the way in your energetic body for the season of Aries, which revolves around the self and your soul’s purpose.
It will offer you a time to work on the relationships you have with all the many different aspects of yourself.
The inner work you do now will set the foundation for spring and the months ahead.
Mercury retrograde will move out, so make sure you tap into the Pisces energy of going deep to those spiritual contracts with yourself.
It’s easy to stay stuck in the past, but when you work on understanding the deeper parts of who you are, you will find it so much easier to move forward as we open up to the spring season. We’ll be talking more about forgiveness and compassion of past “mistakes as we enter into the full moon”.
All of this I talk about on my Energy Focus for the Week, which you can find the replay on my website or tune into on Sundays on Facebook and Instagram live. I offer information about the cosmos, how it affects your energy and we align our focus, energetically, together. We look at the cards for guidance for the week. And, you can bring your questions! Join me. If you aren't in my Facebook group, the Empowered Sprit Circle, I would love to invite you in. Coming up this Spring, I will be offering Akashic Clearings only in the group.

With so much stress in the world, finding tools and techniques to rest, to pause and be aware of our energy is so vital.
Having a spiritual practice in this overwhelmingly busy time period in history is crucial, for both our health and mental sanity.

The Equinox works with balance. Your perceived, internal balance is actually a balance between the many relationships you have within yourself. This beginning of Spring is offering you the time to look within.
It’s important to understand all of these relationships to fully grasp where your inner peace originates. Each relationship needs to be nourished for you to feel content within your life.
What is you relationship to you mental chatter?
What is your relationship to you emotions?
What is your relationship to your body? To your Spirit?
Is it in balance?
Is it one sided?
As you come into your practice, these are the things to balance, to realize, to understand, first and foremost with yourself and then you can move out to relationships with others.
There are many ways in which you can create balance in yourself.
Libra is an air sign and reminds us that our breath, and the way we are breathing, helps create equanimity in our energetic field. Therefore, breath work is our first tool in maintaining energetic balance.
Your breath is also a clue to when our inner equilibrium has been thrown off. You may notice when you are feeling unbalanced emotionally your breathing becomes shallow or you may even hold your breath.
Libra reminds us that maintaining balance is also a focus on the breath.
The more you practice working with your breath, the more you will be able to catch yourself before the imbalance occurs.
The Meditation for this podcast is a yogic breath, Alternating Nostril Breathing, that balances the right and left sides of the brain, bringing balance for the spring energies to the energetic body.
Begin in a comfortable seated position with your spine upright. Using your right hand, place your thumb on your right nostril and your ring finger on your left nostril. The index and middle finger will rest on your forehead. You can also hold your right elbow with your left hand for support. Start by closing your left nostril and breathing only through your right side for a count of four. Hold both sides and your breath for a count of five then hold your right nostril exhaling only through the left for a count of five. Then reverse it. Breathe in through the left, hold, then Exhale through the right- all for a count of 5. This is one complete round which we continue to repeat for 5 minutes.
Meditation is essential!
The card that came forward this week for the Shaman Oracle was the Blade. Time to cut through the old stuff. Time to cut the old cords. Time to cut that new path for you.
So as I go to close, I leave you with this poem from The She book by Tanya Markul to remind you as you open up to your Spring Intentions. Don’t let anyone stop your dreams or judge your path. You have a right to shine your light from your spirit.
Those who find her crazy
Are too sane for the magic of the stars
The wisdom of the trees
And the power of her howl on a full moon.
It is the season to awaken.
Thanks again for listening!
To your Spirit!
