Happy Spring Equinox
More sunshine, more energy, time to heal, grow and improve our lives
We love spring! We have more light and time to do what we want. It may take a few days or more to get used to the time change. If you are still struggling with it, a treatment will help. Stick to your sleep schedule and make sure you are getting the sleep you need.
I have sensed a change in patients and many people I know. They are getting tired of the norm of chasing money or dreams that are not in alignment with their true selves and values. Does this apply to you or have you seen it in others? Do not waste your time with people that do not appreciate you, your energy or beautiful spirit. I have recently had to let go of some people out of my life that was not in alignment. I do not hesitate. My time is precious and so is yours. Whenever I do this I feel an enormous weight is lifted off of my shoulders. Let go of things, people and places that no longer serve you so that you can be more free and happy.
What is the Equinox all about?
The Term “Equinox” Means “Equal Night.” Translated from Latin, equinox means “equal night.” In that ancient tongue, the words for “even” is “aequi” while “nox” means “night.” On the date of the equinox, daytime and nighttime have similar—but not quite exact equal—lengths. This has to do with the way planet Earth moves. The equinox marks the exact moment when our sun enters an imaginary line in the sky. Picture a giant, invisible ring around the earth that sits directly above the equator. Scientists call this make-believe halo the celestial equator. It’s a line the sun only crosses twice a year — on the spring and autumn equinoxes. Due to that solar angle, every region of our planet will experience close to 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness on March 20.
You do not come to see me for science lessons. For me, the Equinox is a powerful and magical day where chanting, praying and intentions have extra power. Put your intentions out there! Write them down. Say them out loud. Believe in yourself and what you are capable of! You can do it! You can be healthy, happy, loved, appreciated and find the peace you seek.
For centuries, practitioners of Shintoism used the Equinox as an occasion to honor their forebears. The Japanese government later converted this tradition into secular, national holiday formally known as Vernal Equinox Day in the year 1948. It is still being observed to this day.
In most Christianity denominations Easter is celebrated on the Sunday after the first full moon that follows March 21. What’s so special about this particular date? Well, it marks the so-called Spring Equinox. Most church leaders treat March 21 as though it were the designated spring equinox date every year. Equinox is also the Persian New Year. Navroz Mobarak! Happy New Year to our Persian friends!
What does this all mean? Take some time today to pray, chant set intentions and visualize what you want. Today has extra power.
Lots of patients, family, and friends are asking me about CBD and Hemp oil. They want to know how it works and what it can do for stress and pain. I could write a book someday might some day. If you are interested in learning more please come in for a session so that we can evaluate what is the best type of CBD / hemp treatment for you.
Himalayan Singing Bowl Sound Therapy
Himalayan Singing Bowl Sound Therapy can heal us from the cellular level. Combined with acupuncture, it is even more effective because the sound energy goes through the needles and follows the channels. It can help with emotional and physical ailments, which are on a deeper level than just the physical treatment. The bowls can take us to the Delta stage & when we are in deep relaxation, our bodies can heal. I’ve been integrating sound therapy into treatments with amazing results. If you have tried it then you know. If you have not, let us get you an appointment. I have acquired handmade Tibetan singing bowls that align with each chakra. I tune myself every day:
Enjoy spring. I hope to see you soon!
