How have you been? I hope you had a wonderful weekend and celebrated the Spring Equinox (or Fall Equinox if you are in the other side of the hemisphere) in a meaningful way. In many cultures, the Spring Equinox is celebrated as a time of awakening and rebirth, and it is the time when the hours of daylight and dark are equally balanced.
This special time of the year is a reminder for us to find balance in our own lives. We can take stock of what is not working in our lives and what we aspire to receive and create. By letting go of our struggles and what is not working in our lives, we can create the space necessary to focus on our inspirations and dreams.
To do this, I believe it is essential to learn from ancient traditions including the Hawaiian culture as well as the latest discoveries in science and apply these teachings in our daily lives.
Today, I am writing to you from my home island of Kaua’i after coming back to Hawaii in late January from Switzerland. In the past two weeks leading up to the Spring Equinox, many memories of my past surfaced from my early childhood, times of big struggles in my teen years, time of my corporate career, the heartbreaking and challenging circumstances that led me to Hawaii in 2008 and how my life has completely changed since coming to Hawaii.
It was as if I was watching short clips of my life movie with the endings unknown. Having been reminded of how my life was before I came to Hawaii, I realized again the transformational power and energies these islands hold and how important these Hawaiian Islands became in my life. They have been an amazing teacher, friend and companion to me.
With my reflection and certain synchronicities that occurred a couple of weeks ago, I became to ponder upon questions such as ‘What does it mean to be Hawaiian’? ‘Who is considered a Hawaiian? ‘What does the Hawaiian culture mean to me, and how does it affect the way I live and share?’
Based on such inquires, I wrote a new blog called ‘What does it mean to be Hawaiian?’. You can read it here. If you prefer listening, you can watch the beautiful Hawaiian sunset and listen to me reading it here on YouTube as well.
By reading my blog, I hope you can feel the powerful energies of the Hawaiian Islands and you will be left with peace, hope, and balance.
