I lit a fire last night to give honor of the Land itself & the Beings that call it home. I was celebrating the Spirit of the land…Solstice Meadow. I was also giving honor to all of the Beings who have walked upon my land…Spirits both of the Ancestors & Nature. I planned on writing out instructions for you all on Friday, but with a Death in my family I ran out of time. So instead I will tell you how I connect to the Spirits of the Land & the Spirits that inhabit it.
Last night was special for many reasons. It was a Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse & it fell just after the Autumnal Equinox which in many traditions is seen as a Harvest Holiday. The Fall Equinox is a time of giving thanks for the abundance of Summer & preparing/manifesting what we need for the Winter. It is a time of balance and it calls on us to look at both the light and the dark. Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse is also powerful. Many people see the time in which the Moon becomes dark as a releasing (things we no longer need) & the time of the Moon growing back as a time for what we are manifesting (calling in). For me this is a Sacred time of honoring the Land itself.
I spent last night by myself with the Moon. It was tremendous, putting on quite a show. There was not a cloud in the sky and a saw a few shooting Stars (at just the right moments, of course). As I sat enjoying the fire & the beauty of the Moon I opened myself to the Spirits that share the property with me. I simply sat with them…no words, no deep philosophical conversations, just sitting in each others company enjoying the energy that we together create. For I am a part of the Spirit of this land as much as the other Beings are. I gave thanks to the Ancestors of the Land; the farmers who once toiled the soil of my beloved home & the Natives who hunted the woods of my Mountaintop. I gave thanks to the Nature Spirits who protect the Land & keep it bountiful. It was amazing really…I spent hours under the Moon, by my Fire just being a part of Solstice Meadow.
I did do a bit of personal work as well. During the evening as the Moon was slowly eaten by shadow, I released the shackles of my mind. I chose to release the borders I have put on my ability to manifest & create the world around me. And as the Moon began to grow again, I called to me structure & the ability to create new pathways. It’s a fantastical world we are living in Folks. Quantum Physics has proven that thought matters. I personally intend to put mine to some good. In my thoughts & actions I truly hope to spread love & kindness wherever I go and to always give honor the the Spirits of the Land.
Remember-whenever you take time to honor the ones you love; family, friends, ancestors, the Land, nature, etc…that it is the perfect time for doing so. I hope you enjoyed the read folks, feel free to share it.
