Peace to you all! With the Fall Equinox Fast it is yet again time to bring ourselves into energetic alignment with the cycles of the Universe by fasting at the change of season.
When we fast at these times, it allows us to optimize the energy of the change in season in order to optimize the flow of our lives.
The fast will occur from September 1-23, 2011. This is custom tailored so feel free to fast the entire span of the fast or for any part of it that you so feel led.
Remember that the last 4 days of the fast will be the most auspicious time to work with the energy of transitioning from Summer to Autumn. So if you fast for a shorter time, be sure to include those days.
You also decide how your fast will look. You can radically change your diet. You can fast from one food or beverage that you need to give up for a while or for good.
However, you can also fast from a problematic thought, emotion or spiritual issue. It is important to seek health in all of these parts of ourselves so that we can have balance.
So you can also fast from an emotion or a relationship or a particular behavior. The key is to create a space for you to do spiritual healing and growth work. This is a time for you to go within in order to evolve and take yourself to the next level. This year I have found that making youtube videos are a bit more effective for me to do readings. So here are three youtube videos to help you during the Fall Equinox as well as the Fall Season.
Fall Fast 2010 Insights to Consider at This Time: Transform Youself through Self-Mastery
*I leave the info below in case it helps someone. I read it and thought that it looked interesting enough to keep last year's reading attached. Hope it helps someone.
We are now going into the season of FALL. In the natural physical world, there are so many changes that are occurring. The temperature is beginning to decrease in certain parts of the Northern Hemisphere and the days are getting shorter.
Pretty soon many of us will see the leaves change color as the trees begin to go into conservation mode for the winter.
The wind. That is an element that we are all familiar with as we think about autumn. The wind is embodied in the goddess, OYA. Oya is known for Her winds of change.
What changes do we need to make in our lives? What changes do we need to make in our thinking, our consciousness? Change is the spice of life and quite frankly the only reality. Nothing ever stays the same, even when we think that it does. Trust me, nothing every really stays the same...except the Divine.
But in this physical reality, everything is up for transformation.
What is transformation all about really? We talk about being transformed but why?
For me this life is all about Self-Realization. I seek to know who and what I am and as I do then I am better able to walk out my destiny with grace and ease.
This Fall Fast is dedicated to transformation with the expressed purpose of Self-Realization.
One aspect of Self-realization is self-mastery. We often seek to master a subject or an activity and even people. But how many of us seek to master ourselves?
I have been taught by one of my primary gurus, Baba Koleoso Karade, four keys to self-mastery: Devotion, Awareness, Ritual and Faith.
So many people say that spirituality is actually simple and I have to say that I agree though it does not always feel simple.
But these fours simple keys to self-mastery have led me to a place where I do feel like I am mastering who and what I really am though there are many, many levels for me to master.
Take time during this fast to look at one area of your life that you need to master. You know that area that you spend year after year and dollar after dollar either trying to fix or keep in place.
Yes, consider that area and apply the four keys.
I recommend that you start with a belief as our behaviors always stem from our beliefs. What is a limiting belief that you hold in your consciousness?
DEVOTION: How devoted are you to the belief? How devoted are you to transforming the belief? Just be honest with yourself as honesty will get you the greater benefit.
We always have to ask ourselves what we are devoted to in order to determine how we are going to spend our time.
There is no judgment of what you are devoted to but the question is how is that working for you?
AWARENESS: Of what are you aware or not aware? Begin to walk in the present moment to determine how your limiting belief is playing out in your life. I am realizing more and more how little we realize the programming by which we operate.
I get astonished when one day I become aware of a conditioning that I did not realize that I had. The clues where there that I had an issue but I am not fully aware it.
During this time walk aware by staying fully present in the moment and OBSERVE yourself. WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO? Is your behavior led by your inner guidance or your worldly conditionings/programming?
Take time during this fast to connect with the OMNISCIENCE, the divine wisdom innate in everything. In every problem is the solution. If you ask a question the Universe will provide an answer. Connect with the healing energy and power of your body.
This is a time to become more aware of the wisdom and the power of the Universe which is in all of us if only we allow it.
RITUAL: We all need rituals in our lives. We all need sacred practices that keep us connected to the divine presence within each of us that is each of us.
Ritual can also be used to help transform a belief or a behavior that is causing us problems. During this time one of the best rituals to engage is that of sacrifice.
What are you willing to sacrifice in order to get your break through?
Sacrifice. Many people hear about sacrifice but we know nothing about its real power. Many are struggling to stand in their power not realizing that the real power is in the sacrifice...giving up something of value in order for the greater gain.
I remember giving sacrifice once. It was rings that I wore. One had belonged to my mother and one to my grandmother. It was not so much the rings that needed to be sacrificed as much as my attachment to my mother and grandmother.
I needed to be more attached to the Great Mother, the Divine within me more than souls who had once lived as humans. My attachments to my Ancestral Mothers needed to be put in its proper perspective.
The only problem is the call for the sacrifice of the rings came at a moment of extreme insecurity. Basically I was told to stop wearing the rings. I went off to say the least.
I cried and screamed because I realized fully what I was being asked to do. I was being asked to stop being attached to my mother's and grandmother's life stories and to me feeling like my life was not right without them being here.
I gave up the rings begrudgingly but after a while I was appreciative of the sacrifice that I made as it did usher me into a deeper relationship with my own Higher Self.
There are numerous rituals in which you can engage, sacrifice is a suggestion for the fast season.
FAITH: Faith is a key that I set out on a journey to better understand. DAG!It turned out to be a journey that I wished I had not set sell on.
Here are journals that I wrote about the lessons on my journey to understanding FAITH.
Understanding Faith in the Midst of Tragedy What I know is this. We all have faith. No one has more faith than the other.
The difference is what are we putting our faith in. Really think about that as you ponder your limiting belief. If your faith is in a limited belief, then you can only have an experience that extends as far as that limiting belief.
Faith is certainty. Most of us feel certain that we will walk, we will walk into our home and it be arranged a certain way. Many of us put our faith in getting a paycheck after working a certain amount of hours.
What we are called to do is to see how far we can extend our faith. Certainty of the Divine laws and principles will land us in a place of limitless expansion.
With faith we are able to break out of any box due to a limited belief and step into a new and expanded way of being.
Faith will cause you to take a chance for life was meant to be lived fully and abundantly. Faith leads to abundance. I encourage you to seek to experience more abundance in your consciousness and walk in faith that this is indeed your reality MORE SO than the physical reality.
Here ends the Fall Fast Reading. May your entry into fall be with grace and ease. May your fall be fun yet full of the remembrance of your greatness.
