Take a Power Pause: Bring Your Life into Balance this Equinox
Turn off the chatter and tune into what matters with this special Equinox Super Power Pause I created for you – the Equinox gives you ‘super power’ to create more balance in your life, if you slow down, tap in and then take action. Download it or listen to it right here (22 minute pause including soul inquiry + meditation), and read my post to you below.
Before I knew about the power of what I call “the Feminine Super Power Days,” eight natural turns that the earth goes through, closely aligned with the natural growing cycles, I just went through my year like so many – set goals in January, then move towards those goals, maybe realize along the way I was actually accomplishing some of them, trying to do my best to balance my work, family, finances and personal health and happiness.
Some years were better than others, but I often felt like I had to work hard to make it happen, and I was stuck in patterns of pushing, stress and not feeling like it was ever quite enough. One of the reasons many of us feel that way is that we fail to PAUSE.
What I learned and now practice consistently, is that if you pause at these key times throughout the year to …
…reflect on what has happened,
…celebrate what you have achieved,
… and survey the present state of your life and world (including your health, wealth, happiness, relationships, work and home) to honestly assess what is working well and what needs attention,
THEN you can make CONSCIOUS CHOICES about how you spend your life force as well as your resources of time, energy and money, so it is directed to what truly matters to you.
So why don’t most of us take these power pauses? Well one reason is that most of us were not taught about these (there was no Feminine Super Power class in my MBA courses!) And secondly…
“THE WISDOM IS IN THE PAUSE” BUT MOST OF US FEAR THE PAUSE.
(as wisely stated by Alice Walker, Nobel Prize Winner and author of The Color Purple.)
And she was right.
We fear the pause because we have deeply ingrained internal beliefs in our mind and the pathways of our nervous system that tell us we have to keep moving, keep being ‘productive’, keep working or we will fall behind, fail and a whole litany of things usually ending in the fear of dying, starving or being alone.
We also fear the pause because the world we live in today moves at an increasingly fast speed mostly due to technology and the amount of information coming to us all the time – we have mistakenly begun to believe the answers we seek are in our iPhones, tablets or on some www.com.
When in truth, the guidance you need to make the best choices for yourself – for your work, health, family, wealth, everything – come from within, from your connection to your own heart and soul, to Divine guidance, to a sense of timing attuned to the patterns and energies of the natural cycles (for example Spring is the time to start new things, pull the weeds out, and tend what will ultimately grow into a great harvest).
During these Feminine Super Power Days I take power pauses, kind of like heart and soul alignments, to check in with myself, my Divine Guidance, to see where my life force is wanting to go naturally to bring me the most returns on all counts – spiritual, financial, love, joy, peace. I think of them like pauses to bring my life into more HARMONY (i love this word) with my truth, soul, heart, destiny, desires, and part to play in this world.
I use the word HARMONY vs the more mainstream world of BALANCE because:
WHILE YOU MAY HAVE MOMENTS OF BALANCE, YOUR LIFE IS DYNAMIC NOT STATIC. CREATE A LIFE THAT MOVES IN HARMONY WITH YOUR HEART AND SOUL, AND YOU WILL FIND YOUR TRUE PATH OF HAPPINESS, HEALTH AND WEALTH.
I made this special recording for you that includes some context for you on Equinox and how to use the super power it offers you. I will lead you through a Equinox power pause to survey your life – your personal garden – and tune into your heart and soul with three powerful inquiries that will help you choose where to focus your life force and resources.
This will help you make choices that create more harmony for you in the areas of your life you tend – your Relationships, your Work in the World, your Personal Health, your Wealth, your Spiritual Relationship, and your Home.
Specifically, this March Equinox is the time to survey the main parts of your personal garden, and honestly assess what:
- Needs to be LET GO AND RELEASED (pull the weeds before they take root and overtake your garden)
- Needs to be TRANSFORMED (you don’t want to yank it out of your garden, but it can’t stay the way it is – needs pruning or to be replanted!)
- Is ready to BLOOM & FLOURISH (if you put your life force and energy here, you will receive lots of abundance in all forms.)
I invite you to make a date with yourself, and tap into this powerful Equinox energy, to focus your life force on the places in your life that truly matter the most.
Just like a flower needs love and care to bloom, so does your own personal garden.
