The equinox is a time of balance, of equal parts dark and light. Not in the sense that one is better than the other, but as a part of the natural cycles that serve as the backdrop of our lives.
There are many reasons why I am drawn to and love to create in relation to the cycles of the moon, the planets and nature in general.
The main reason I like to do this is as a personal reminder that there is a bigger picture, a greater force humming along in the background and it has my back. It teaches me to go with the flow and be with what is as the cycles repeat day after day, month after month, season after season and year after year.
Often times life, both on the outside and within, feels chaotic and out of control.
There is a level of powerlessness that I have always pushed against out of fear.
I’ve spent years trying to control my environment in order to feel safe. It doesn’t work. It may appear to for a while, but not in the long term.
I’m learning through my work in recovery, though, to find a sense of safety and support within. Stability that is not dependent on what is happening outside of me.
I’ve been at this for over ten years now and I STILL forget and go into a fearful spiral at times. That tendency is especially in the forefront right now, and I think we can all agree that things are particularly challenging at the moment.
I HAVE to mark the passage of these natural cycles. It is important to me on so many levels. I share that with you all through the way I work and what I create and offer both in my words and my art. Thank you all for being a part of that!
Fluorite is the perfect mineral to mark this occasion, especially since during this Equinox we are facing unprecedented events that are challenging to us all.
It is a mineral that is both balancing and grounding. It is helpful for decluttering the mind and letting go of negative thought patterns that no longer serve ours or the collective’s best interests
Fluorite is also used to nurture a feeling of inner peace and a clear mind by giving structure to our thoughts, ESPECIALLY during challenging times. (Hello challenging times!)
