It is a time of natural beauty. For a moment, the sun crosses the celestial equator, marking the changing of the seasons. Saying goodbye to the old and joyously bringing in the new, this is a time of reflection and change. If you’re wondering how to celebrate the Fall Equinox as part of your personal practice, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s take a look at this period and the activities you can engage in throughout.
What is the Fall Equinox?
Welcoming the changing of the seasons, the Fall Equinox is the time when the sun is directly above the equator. At that moment, the day and night are the same length. It is an important and sacred time for many people around the world. This period also brings in the new fall season, and allows us a unique chance to change and grow.
Taking place in late September, this day is one of newness and celebration. It is a time when we all have a chance to look back and reflect on all that has come before it. What’s more, if you are on a Kundalini Yoga journey, there are various ways that you can celebrate this time. The new season is an opportunity to reset and recharge.
How to Welcome the Fall Equinox
Now that you understand what the Fall Equinox is, let’s talk about how you can welcome the season. Whether you are new to the world of Kundalini Yoga or have been practicing for some time, there are things you can do to mark this period. Harnessing the power of Mother Nature and the grandness of each season is an effective way to boost your practice. With that in mind, here are some of the activities you may wish to do:
1. Start using positive affirmation
Regardless of how you’re feeling right now, we could all do with some positivity in our lives. Why not get started by using positive affirmations in your everyday life? You can create your own or use some radical self-care quotes to get started.
2. Clear your mind
Feeling overwhelmed or under pressure? Taking a moment to clear your mind is the answer. Luckily enough, there’s a meditation to help you reach mental clarity. Take a few moments to yourself and engage in this soothing and relaxing practice.
3. Cook healthy meals
The Fall Equinox is the perfect time to start adopting healthier habits. One place you may want to start is by cooking healthy meals at home. Learn a couple of basic recipes, which will become your staples. Use them whenever you need something tasty and nutritious.
4. Rid yourself of negativity
Negative feelings are dangerous to our emotional well-being. Now that the fall season is here, welcome it by ridding yourself of these toxic emotions. You may want to start with a breathing technique that helps you banish these feelings and instill a level of calm.
Continue your practice in the new season!
Seasons come and go, but your Kundalini Yoga practice remains the one stable, certain force. Regardless of where you are in your journey, stick with this refreshing, rejuvenating practice in whatever way suits you. Keep going and keep moving.
