As we enter Mabon properly I can’t help but feel excited as the beauty of Autumn envelopes us. Yes, it’s sad to say goodbye to the hazy summer days, but Autumn is just such a lovely season. Crisp mornings, crunchy leaves and the world begins its journey into quiet calm. Not to mention the best season of all (for me), Samhain is quickly approaching.
Ceremony Weavers of the Wheel has had the joy of facilitating ceremonies to celebrate the glorious exciting spring energies, sensuous Beltane, and joyous summer, but autumn’s call to return to deep inner spiritual workings is irresistible.
A simple thing you can do to open yourself to the changing energies is make a change yourself. So this season we invite you to mix up your routine. This could be something small. Maybe switching off the radio or TV in the morning and looking out of the window or sitting outside in the crisp air. Maybe get off the bus one stop early and walk part of the way home. I for example always do a particular walk on a Wednesday, and I always find myself going around the park the same way round, yet this week I chose to walk round in the other direction.
The stability of the routine walk is great for body and soul, yet a simple tweak of walking a different or reverse way opens you up to noticing again. So often we are caught up in the business of our minds, by mindfully mixing things up it causes us to take notice, and at this time of year spiritual messages may be coming through that we miss. Awaken your senses and take notice once more before we return to a time of stillness and reflection. Be open to change, be open to receive, what message does the universe want you to receive?
We invite you to join us at our ceremonies if you can, and journey through the dark half of the year with us!
