Spring Equinox Inspires
Planting the Seeds of Good Fortune

Spring Equinox inspires new beginnings and unleashes the huge annual surge of rapid growth.

Springtime brings a tidal wave of new energy.

Find balance in the flow, know your direction and you'll enjoy the ride to Good Fortune.

First, find your balance and then make decisions.

Wait for Inspiration and then plant the seed ideas you want to "blossom and bear fruit."

You can't harvest what you don't plant.

Your Attitude results in how you feel and where you Focus. Your ideas are the seeds that grow into your future in the same way that apples grow on an apple tree. You and your environment are one whole - inseparable.

To change your environment, change your ideas, feelings and attitude to align with Good Fortune. Let the Law of Attraction bring together similar vibrations and do the work for you. Tune into the Spring Equinox season - and make this a break-through year.

"If you don't design your
own life plan, chances are
you'll fall into someone
else's plan. And guess what
they have planned for you?
Not much."

Jim Rohn

Quiet times are ending

From December 21 - Winter Solstice - until March 20th, the Vernal Equinox (Spring Equinox)-- you experience a natural inner-focused time of soul-searching.

Clear out the old and make room for the new.

Fine-tune your Vision and plant the seeds of Good Fortune to harvest this Fall.

Ideas and new Inspiration take shape now.

The "new" Vision you have discovered is still below the surface like a seed sprouting within the soil.

Some of your ideas are beginning to "sprout."

You may see evidence "growing" up around you of new potential.

New Inspiration too.

Major Life Cycles are times of change: Go with the Flow.

On March 20th - the Spring Equinox - Life, and the planet's movement in the natural cycles, appears to pause or "stand still" for about five days.

Springtime babies and new life sprout up everywhere.

Pause and tune in. Catch the current of Spring's surge of abundance.

Day and night are in perfect balance.

Equinox means "equal night."

Because the sun is positioned above the equator, day and night are about equal in length all over the world during the equinoxes.

Spring starts in the Northern Hemisphere, and autumn begins in the Southern Hemisphere.

The pause - and shift towards increasing light - has long been recognized as a very potent time to Focus and set Intentions for the coming year. From this day forward, you are moving, along with everyone in the Northern hemisphere, more and more into the light.

The days become longer, the nights shorter. As the sunlight increases - so does growth. The pace of life quickens.

"Start by doing what is necessary,
then what is possible and suddenly
you are doing the impossible."
St. Francis of Assisi

Your internal changes reflect the seasons.

In your personal life, you may notice you are less drawn to "looking within" (a time of Yin, seeking quiet and rest). Your attention will soon turn to the increasing light, and to looking out into life - and inspired action soon propels you into your future. You "grow" into your Vision in just this way.

Energy increases and everything moves faster.

Get up to speed or you'll be left behind.

You begin to spot new growth and opportunities.

From this point forward you gather the strength, from all your past experiences and talents, and choose a new direction

-- and perhaps even act on it!

There's a special push and upsurge of energy after the Spring Equinox to "get going."

Your more "dynamic self" is waking up.

You are moving out into life - in the Yang or male cycle - and reaching for what you Desire. Getting what you want gets easier when you Focus with single minded Intention and persistence. Imagine the "hunter" going after and getting the food to feed the people. It's taking the risk - well planned and trained for - and using your talents to go after and get what you want.

Take time to reflect- find balance in your purpose.

Set your sails, Focus on your destiny-- use the power of the wind, tied and currents surging now.

Plan and design your life's direction. The current of Good Fortune and the Winds of Change are taking you to wherever you Focus.

New life is moving beneath the surface, ideas you set in motion, and now are taking shape.

You have limited time to review and decide if this is really what you want next.

Is your Vision of the future clear?

Does it fill you with passion and a desire to achieve it?

If not, redo your Vision now.

"Nothing happens
unless first a dream."
Carl Sandburg

Are you reaching for the life you want - or are you simply surviving and "making do." Even if you achieve it, it won't be what you want, will it? Now is the time to give your full attention to what inspires passion - and ignore what no longer feels right to you. Spring Equinox is the time to allow the old to fade away, and the new to take form.

Look out into life with a fresh new perspective.

Plant what you love and want to harvest. Choose only what feels right to you. That plants the idea and Law of Attraction will respond instantly and soon your "attractions" will grow into your life.

You can't expect to harvest what you haven't planted, can you?

Find what you love and go after it.

Feel the eagerness of a child in Springtime to go out and play.

Allow yourself to have fun and enjoy yourself and life -

and you will like the results.

Fear attracts itself and limits your future.

If you feel fearful and reticent - you won't like what you find, and what is attracted to you. You are the "chooser" and now is the time to decide.

This major shift of Focus is universal.

At the time of the Spring Equinox (March 20th) the Sun rises exactly in the east and travels through the sky for 12 hours and sets exactly in the west.

Spring "blossoms" and the honey bees pollenate - assuring a harvest.

All of Nature works together producing the food you rely on for survival - keep in touch with the bounty and its source.

Life is in balance.

A window of clarity is open to you to explore your potential. The Spring Equinox, the turning of the sun (towards more and more light) has been recognized from time-out-of-mind as a potent planting cycle.

Springtime is also known as a time of love, sexuality, birth and rebirth.

"Our task must be to free
ourselves by widening our circle
of compassion to embrace all
living creatures and the whole
of nature and its beauty."
Albert Einstein

Tune into the sun's cycles of change.

Every culture celebrates rebirth and renewal. In ancient times the flow of the seasons and the movement of the planets and stars were a part of daily life. That is no longer true -- most have lost their connection to the Earth and Earth changes. Nonetheless, you are affected by the Spring Equinox, just as the seasons, physiology and biological rhythms affect you.

"Unknowingly, we plow the dust of stars,
blown about us by the wind, and drink the
universe in a glass of rain."
Ihab Hassan

Awareness of your nature within Nature.

Choose to tune in. Become aware of the natural cycles and the flow of life. The rewards are feeling a connection to your Life Force and creative power. When you align with the natural cycles, life is easier and flows effortlessly to a future you want. As you feel a part of the whole, you gather strength and when you set your Intention on what you want next -- you have a sense of certainty of attaining it.

Refresh your spirt at sunrise - feel the new beginnings.

Mother Nature has the power to warm you and inspire you to clarity and reveal your life's purpose - and it's free.

Catch a sunrise or sunset when you can.

Take a walk, hike or bike.

Spend some time alone - and listen to yourself.

Are you telling yourself about the world you want to live in?

Or are you complaining and fearing your future?

Now is the time to change it. You will be getting more of whatever you speak (you are asking Law of Attraction for more of what you say and feel - so stop complaining!) Feel Good about life and you'll like the results.

"Silence is the great teacher,
and to learn its lessons you must
pay attention to it.
There is no substitute for the
creative inspiration, knowledge,
and stability that come from
knowing how to contact your
core of inner silence."
Deepak Chopra

Good Fortune is the natural flow of life.

The Life Force, Mother Nature, flow out a natural abundance.

Find what you love and harvest that.

Fine-tune your awareness of life's cycles. All of life flows in natural rhythms within rhythms, and streams of abundance and well-being flow around you. Slip into the flow and allow yourself to enjoy an easy ride to health and abundance.

Good Fortune cycles like the moon cycles and tide cycles -- sometimes full, sometimes void or empty. The movement is always flowing between opposite extremes. When times are good, conserve and plan for your future. Being in-tune assures your thriving in the inevitable downturn. When times are slack and resources few, planting and looking forward to the next harvest lifts you into an abundant future.

"The DNA in our bodies
gives us access to the energy
that connects our universe,
and emotions is the key to
tapping into the field."

Gregg Braden

Your Attitude determines your outcome. Nothing else can interfere with what you think and tell yourself. Ever.

Live in Good Fortune NOW.

Make this true for yourself. It's all up to you. See, feel, and talk only about what you love. Train your mind to Focus on what you want. Let the old stuff and familiar habits fall away.

Sing a song you love.

Beam out loving life and life will send you more to love.

Switch from feeling fearful to feeling good about what you expect in your future.

You tend to vibrate to what you see and tell yourself.

Your Attitude is what is being answered and giving you the life you have now.

If you want a new year with new beginnings, then change it now - using Spring Equinox energy -

by creating or finding what feels good to you and live in it.

"We can't solve problems
by using the same kind
of thinking we used when
we created them."
Albert Einstein

How do you do that when you don't have it?

  • Seek it and talk about it. Change. Find what you love - within your life and outside of your normal experiences.

  • Do you want more time for yourself. Do it now.
  • Do you want more vitality and health? Choose Health and Wellness.Food and exercise will make a huge difference.

  • Want more order out of chaos? Clean up your home and car. Make a schedule and keep it. Make notes and set priorities every day. Just do it.

  • Do you want a bigger home? Find it - go to a hotel or to the library - tell yourself: "...ahhh yes! Like this."

  • Get a postcard or picture and use it to focus on what you love. Build a Vision Board

  • Same with music - the test is: I feel GREAT when I see/hear....? Use that.

  • Find something you LOVE - and play...a dog, cat, boat, camp, picnic, sand castle, with kids?

Do you want more loving relationships? Stress free relationships are a choice. Find good qualities in those around you - and appreciate the best in them and ignore the rest. Bring out the qualities you want. Nurture them into blooming into your future....you create good relations in just this way.

"Imagine a fish - discovering water -
in that same way, become aware
you swim in a current of love,
Well-being and Solutions flowing
to your own unique ever-expanding
Vision. It is that Knowing that opens
you to be in the flow of Good Fortune."
Cheryl Janecky

Changing your perspective changes everything.

Once you get in the habit of looking for what you love -- Law of Attraction will flood you with more things to love.

Quiet your mind and tune into the flow of Good Fortune

Allow Law of Attraction to do the work and bring you a perfect match to your Vision. Your job is to hold the Vision and love it.

Fine-tune as you go.

Modify and select what makes your heart sing.

The more often you insist on enjoying life

the more enjoyment you have in life --

the more flowing into your future!

That flow of life is your own natural flow to what you love.
Get into the current and the flow will carry you - effortlessly - to your Vision.

"Those who follow the Tao
are clear of mind.
They do not load their mind
with anxieties and are
flexible in their adjustment
to external conditions."
Chuang Tzu

Use the turning of the tide of Good Fortune.

Spring Equinox is a wonderful time of rapid growth, good for self-centering and for claiming the life-style you want to live. Use the natural cycles to boost yourself into your future.

Which direction will this momentum take you?

Turn off negative influences and concentrate on only what you want. As the days grow longer - more and more of what you have "planted" becomes visible. Does this seem remote to your daily life? It isn't.

Ancient cultures marked the sun's cycles in stone.

Knowledge of the special power in Spring was universal.

The Sphinx (over 10,000 years ago) was a huge undertaking. And what was the point?

No one knows: The history and meaning is lost - but their huge monument focuses on the Spring Equinox and invites your questions.

Egyptians built the Great Sphinx to directly face the rising Sun on the day of the Spring Equinox.

Mayan sacred sites mark the turning of the seasons in the placement of their temples, monuments and ritual passage-ways. Spring Equinox is marked at every site.

Stonehenge and other rock monuments throughout the world mark Spring Equinox and the other Sun cycles as well.

Your ancestors and your genetic code are in synch with the seasons - are you?

The Spring Equinox is associated with, or known as: Alban Eilir, Feast of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Festival of Trees, Lady Day, Rites of Spring, and the Vernal Equinox.

The first day of spring (Spring Equinox) also marks the beginning of Noruz (No Ruz or NawRuz), the Persian New Year. The celebration lasts 13 days and is rooted in the 3,000-year-old Zorastrian tradition.

In early European traditions, Spring Equinox is also known as Ostara. The Goddess manifests as Ostara or Eostre in a festival of new growth. She carries a basket of eggs and is joined by a rabbit, a manifestation of the God of Fertility and abundance. Green represents the greening of the land with vegetation and is sacred to this Sabbat.

Ever wonder where "traditions" come from?

Spring Equinox is a time of growing and fertility. Both seeds and eggs represented fertility. Eggs contain the new animal life and seeds become the new plant life. Z Budapest in "Grandmother of Time" says, "The eggs were dyed red (the color of life) on the Festival of Astarte (Mid-March.)" Another tradition is the beautifully decorated eggs from the Ukraine (pysanky.) They are covered with magic words, symbols and colors for protection, fertility, good luck, and strength.

Astronomy set religious dates -- a common practice -- even today.

The Spring Equinox and the moon cycles are significant in Christianity because Easter always falls on the first Sunday (Sun's day) after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. Other seasonal holidays follow this tradition as well.

The Spring Equinox is the time of "seeding and planting" your year ahead.

Beauty lifts your spirits - right into the flow of Good Fortune.

Find the Beauty in Life and Live Your Dream in it.

Weed out what you don't want.

Nurture what you do want.

Plant more seeds.

Keep your "garden" in the light of your Focus and in the natural flow of light, well-being and abundance.

Feel that you are living in Good Fortune: Now. It's easy to do. Just be happy and love your life. All of it.

Yeah! It really is that simple. Doing it takes practice though.
