In about a month, we are getting ready to shed our heavy winter coat and welcome in the light of the sun. We are getting ready to take all that we have been working on internally and apply it to our everyday lives. In many ways, it is like whatever we have been working on under the feminine and restorative presence of Winter is now getting ready to be birthed into reality by the masculine presence of the Sun. An Equinox is when the day and night are of equal length. This occurs due to the tilt of the Earth and happens twice a year, once in Spring and once in Autumn or Fall. The Spring Equinox brings us a balance of day and night because the Sun is sitting on the Earth’s equator. (“Equinox” means “equal night”.) The March Equinox falling on the 20th also symbolizes the start of the Astrological year, in fact in many cultures this is celebrated as the New Year.
The spring equinox is celebrated in many traditions as a time of growth, prosperity, regeneration, and rebirth. For thousands of years our ancestors have celebrated Spring Equinox, as a time of fertility, rebirth of life and energy – which is why today we find many traditional religious celebrations at this time, such as Easter and Passover.
With this being said, I am excited to initiate Queen Yenn’s Spring Equinox 30 day challenge, the “I Affirm” Challenge. Our mental chatter influences and colors our feelings and perceptions about what’s going on in our lives, and it is these thought forms that ultimately attract and create our reality. The practice of engaging in affirmations allow us to begin replacing some of our stale, worn-out, or negative mind chatter with more positive ideas and concepts. It is a powerful technique, one that can in a short time transform many of our attitudes and expectations about life, and thereby help us change the life/reality we create for ourselves. Even 10 minutes a day of repeating effective affirmations can counterbalance years of old mental habits.
For 30 days we will spend at least 10 minutes per day meditating on and repeating affirmations in association with rebirth, regeneration, growth and prosperity in all the areas of our lives. And what better day to kick off such a challenge than the day of the Spring Equinox March 20, 2017. We will conclude the challenge on April 19, 2017 with an hour of expression giving the platform for you to share your lessons and blessings! Until then, to make sure that we are good and ready to receive, we will provide powerful tips on how to prepare for the challenge and make the best out of it. Stay tuned and get excited! Your healing, growth, prosperity, and heart’s desires are on the way!
