Earth Line Activation for the Autumnal Equinox
We all receive messages from above.
These messages come to us as energetic transmissions. Energy is the root of all existence, including human life. This energy is part of us and is our language with the Universe.
These transmissions are all non-physical. We can’t see them. But we can ‘feel’ them. This is because within each of us is a Line where these energetic transmissions run through us.
When we receive a message from above, it enters our body through the crown of our head, running down the Line in the centre of the body and out through our feet and into the Earth. The energy of the Earth activates these messages before running back up the Line for us to receive.
The ‘gut feelings' or ‘intuitive hits’ you pick up on are the messages you’re receiving through the Line. Whether they come to you randomly or you’re actively working to receive them, the Earth Line Activation can support you in receiving these messages of guidance and wisdom whenever you need to.
LIGHT AND DARK, SHADOWS AND TRUTH
Find your Middle Space and Release
The Equinox occurs when the sun crosses the celestial equator (the non-physical extension into space of Earth’s equator) from north to south. The word “Equinox” is derived from the Latin words aequus, which means ‘equal’, and ‘nox’, which means night. On the day of the Autumn Equinox, the day and night are approximately equal in length.
This day presents an energetically potent and heightened day for you to connect to the Line within you. Just as the sun and warmth brought new life in Spring, the cold and dark will kill what nature no longer needs. The cycle of birth, death and re-birth applies is in us, too. Look at your cycles and patterns and ask yourself: What have you outgrown? What are you holding onto that is no longer serving you? What do you want to leave behind you? What needs to die within you?
You have shadows, you have darkness; we all do. Don’t fear these shadows or the darkness within you. Without darkness we would not have light. Make your shadows your teachers.
Within every action, decision and thought lies a Middle Space. This is a space where you embody the neutrality of energy. This doesn’t mean you have no emotion, attachment or care. It means you see your decisions, your habits, your thoughts for the energy they give off—to you, to others, to the Universe.
Think of your Middle Space as the space where the Line runs through you. It is your centre. It is where you align with the energetic transmissions being sent to you. From this space, you have the perspective of seeing everything for its energetic imprint. This is the space you want to be when confronting your shadows with the truth of the light.
The Pinnacle often point to the contrast of the human experience. Life and death. Joy and sadness. Light and dark. We all experience contrast. It defines us. On the Autumnal Equinox, draw from the contrasting energy of equal light and dark to find the Middle Space of your shadows, to release them and move forward in the coming season.
In the week leading up to the Autumnal Equinox, begin to prepare your home for the seasonal change. Drawing on ancient traditions, the following practices are intentional self-care and energetic preparations to connect to your Line within.
Energy sticks in things. When a room is cluttered and disorganized—clothes piled on the floor or dirty dishes always stacked in the sink—you can absorb those same feelings, whether you realize it or not. In my work with the Akashic Records, I’ve learned to not keep anything on the floor that isn’t necessary. Energy needs to move freely through a room and in order to do that it needs space to move.
I’ve also learned to discard of any belonging that doesn’t align with my happiness. The Autumnal Equinox is a time to share with others so take this opportunity to sort through and donate everything you don’t need.
Once you’ve tidied your space, make sure all closets, cabinets, drawers and windows are open and walk through your home in a counterclockwise order, starting at the front door, spraying the corners and centre point with an energy clearing mist. I like using one that is made from palo Santo and sage essential oils. Once you’re finished, return to the spot where you began and complete the walkthrough again, this time clapping your hands through each room. Noise helps stuck energy move. It’s very important to have your windows open so the unwanted energy is able to escape.
In ancient times, and for many today, preparing an alter is a ritual that brings festive energy to the home by honouring the Earth and her changing elements. You can go for a walk through the forest and collect treasures that remind you of fall. You can also go to a farmers market and pick up seasonal produce or a bouquet of festive flowers.
Nourish Your Body
Energy is limitless and, as you are energy, you are limitless, as well. Your body is a physical container for your energy and it needs to be treated as such. Cherishing your body and taking care of your health supports expansion and your ability to connect to your Line within. If you want to receive messages through The Line with clarity and intention, eating healthy and taking care of your body is necessary.
Prepare a beautiful fall meal with fresh, seasonal produce. Squash, eggplant, peppers, potatoes, carrots, apples, berries, grapes, nuts, seeds and corn are autumnal vegetables and fruits you can include.
Open your journal. One the top left side of the page write SHADOW. On the top right side of the page write TRUTH. Draw a line down the middle, dividing the two. This line symbolizes the Line within you as well as the Middle space between these two thoughts, your shadow and your truth. When you’re in the Middle Space, you can see the contrast between shadow and truth with neutrality, without self-criticism, and you can accept both as informing the reality you experience before creating a plan to move forward.
Take a moment to reflect and write down every shadow you currently have about yourself. An example of a shadow I am working through right now is: “I cannot be successful until I live in a different city.”
Then take a moment to activate the Line within you by closing your eyes, pressing your hands together (as if in prayer) above your head, and slowly inhaling and exhaling as you move your hands down the centre line of your body and back up. Your intention is to open yourself up to the guidance and messages that are coming through the Line within you.
When you’re ready, open your eyes and write down the truth to your shadows in the next column. An example of the truth to my shadow is: “I am successful, worthy and whole where I am.”
If you don’t know your shadows right now, don’t worry. You can move on to the Line Activation and return to the journal exercise later.
This exercise is specifically designed to activate the Line within you. Find a comfortable surface and lay down. Close your eyes and cover them, creating full darkness. Allow your body and mind to drift into your theta brain state. This is the pathway to learning, memory, and a deep history of everything that’s flowing through your Line within. Listen to this recording as often as you need.
Now move through the exact same exercise, adding more Shadows and corresponding Truths to your list from what you learned in your Line Activation. You may also go deeper on your shadows, illuminating their depths and the extent to which your Truth can free you from your shadows’ hold on you.
When you’re finished take a salt bath with the lights out and a candle burning. You can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to the both if you wish. The salt will neutralize your energy and the calmness of the warm water will bring you into balance.
