Happy Autumn Equinox!
Using today’s Mabon arrival (or Autumn Equinox) as inspiration, we are going to take a look at the harvest of hard work from two of our guides, plus introduce you to forest bathing – the perfect way to acknowledge the season change.
This equinox is all about balance and giving thanks for what we have (literally) harvested, consider your blessings and share gratitude with those who are around. The team at Mind Body Green have written the perfect questions to ask yourself during this time.
In Everyday Magic, Semra Haksever (Mama Moon) has decided to demystify magic and enable us all to apply simple, powerful tools to elevate our everyday lives. This is the book to show you a way to channel your inner power, make positive changes in your lives, cleanse, heal and embrace a little more spirituality – from how to weave bespoke spells, construct an altar, create manifestations, moon rituals, gratitude meditations and more. We’ve been given a little pre launch look and not only is it beautifully written, its also illustrated to perfection. The book is out on the 4th October but available to pre order here
Tamara Driessen, aka Wolf Sister, has taken the crystal reins into her own hands and completed the perfect reference for these seventy beautiful stones. From the perfect crystals to empower and energize you, through to easy rituals, meditations and crystallized self-care routines that will leave you feeling happier, healthier and more grounded. Whether it’s peacock ore to give you more confidence on that nerve-racking first date, white celestite to conquer anxiety or purple amethyst to you help you feel centred, make this your go to encyclopedia. The Crystal Code: Balance Your Energy, Transform Your Life is out on the 25th October and available to pre order here.
Forest Bathing, or Shinrin-yoku, means to ‘take in the forest atmosphere’. Hailing from Japan in the 80’s, it came to fruition after research showed that dedicated time in nature has proven health benefits; from lowering blood pressure and pulse rates, to greater parasympathetic nerve activity and lower sympathetic nerve activity, when compared to walking in urban areas. So what better way to immerse yourself in Mabon than take a forest walk (you might need an umbrella if your UK based!).
