Today is the Autumn Equinox. The point where the sun is directly aligned with the equator of the earth, making night and day of approximately equal length all over the earth. Dagwaagiin means Autumn in Annishinabe.
This equinox feels extra important. It feels like a tipping point… hurling us into a new future. Leaving behind all that no longer serves us… on such a micro and macro level.
The middle way, the space in between… finding balance.
The seven gifts of the grandfathers help us to find balance in this world, as we journey through life.
Wisdom, Love, Respect, Bravery, Honesty, Humility, and Truth.
To cherish knowledge is to know Wisdom.
To know Love is to know peace.
To honor all of the Creation is to have Respect.
Bravery is to face the foe with integrity.
Honesty in facing a situation is to be brave.
Humility is to know yourself as a sacred part of the Creation.
Truth is to know all of these things.
Take a moment today to show gratitude for all that life has given you… For every moment is a gift. Cherish knowledge, love, honor all creations, have integrity, be brave, know you are sacred, and you will know truth. <3
