Trust the intelligence of your body. Without consulting a calendar or reading the blogs, it knows the Equinox is coming. It cares little for the latest war or fiscal crisis. What’s important to your animal body is that we’re entering a new season. It may not register the exact date (which this year is September 23), but your body is already noticing the approaching change. In the three weeks before and after new seasons begin, our bodies are adjusting—and they’re quite vulnerable as they shift into the new rhythms and temperatures. These are the weeks when people are most susceptible to infections. So pay attention!
Support your instinctive animal self. If you’re in the northern hemisphere, trade cool foods like fruits and raw veggies salads for foods that have cooked awhile (like hearty soups) as this will bring supportive warmth into your body. If you’re in the southern hemisphere, eat greens, raw fruits and vegetables, as this will help your body dance into spring. Rest and exercise in the way that’s appropriate for you. Your body will appreciate this loving attention.
Your body knows what’s up–but if you’d like your mind to play along, teach it how to synchronize with natural time. This learning is available every month in my Moon Workshop. Enroll here!
