FSIM Fall Equinox Event
Recap by Sonia Ellis, FSIM Board Member
After so many months of not being able to get together in person, it was a joy to sit around a blazing firepit with my Feng Shui sisters. The intent of the Fall Equinox in my backyard was to be present, to hold space, to rejoice in sitting in a circle again.
We enjoyed both somber and happy moments. Stories that brought us to tears of sadness remembering family and friends who have passed and laughter at some of our fun experiences with life. We shared about all these months of hardship and sadness but looked ahead optimistically, with the help from reading an astrologer's newsletter about upcoming astrological events. Although the reading cautions us to slowdown as Mercury Retrograde approaches, it gave us clear guidelines of what to expect. Begin or build your meditation practice, walk in nature, stay grounded, release clutter of any kind, be it physical, virtual or of the mind, contemplate and reflect on your inner world, your life, take time to be, just be.
Even though the night was blustery and chilly, the fire was warm and vigorous, as was the chatter. Most of us were able to release, if not only our red envelops, calendars and letters, also our frustration and longing for human interaction which we so deeply missed.
Since we forgot to take pictures, instead visualize in your mind’s eye, six of your Feng Shui journey travelers wishing our community a safe and healthy transition through this cool metal yang season of fall which brings us closer and back to Mother Earth. Go forth and enjoy, reconnecting with your roots and yourself! We missed you! Be well. Sonia

CollageX event, October 10, 9 AM to 6 PM:
Our own Carole Hyder and Carolyn Vinup will be among the 24 presenters during this live event.
Carole's topic: How Your Home Speaks To You. Using dowsing and kinesiology, Carole will demonstrate how your home affects your body and, therefore, your well-being. Learn how to communicate with your home so you can determine what supports and what weakens your energy. Knowing the subconscious influences of a space enables you to create an environment that inspires and uplifts, where you can thrive both physically and mentally.
Carolyn's topic: Magnetizing Waves of Abundance. Everyone has a unique relationship with the energy of Abundance. Some people think it is all about money and material items, while others may view Abundance from a more holistic mindset. Your level of awareness and state of consciousness has a lot to do with how you magnetize a life in alignment with your purpose, passions, and potentiality. Join Carolyn as she creates sacred space to help open your chakras and energy channels so that you can remove obstacles in your life that may be holding you back from living the life you say you are ready to claim. After a dowsing demonstration, Carolyn will build an energy grid in the center of the room to support you to awaken your abundant heart so you can become a vibrational match for your wishes, dreams, and desires.
