What is calling you to be released to truly thrive ?
As you ask yourselves these questions, what answers come to the surface?
They might be quick and clear or you might be called to set aside more moments of stillness to allow the answers to be felt, heard and known
Hello Autumn !
Our season for letting go
For taking stock of where we are right now and discerning what is serving us and what is depleting us
EMOTIONALLY, PHYSICALLY, SPIRITUALLY and ENERGETICALLY
AS THE SEASONS CHANGE SO DO WE, our connection with our environment and with our universe means that we will NATURALLY FEEL the subtle and sometimes not so subtle changes around us
Our Earth Season or Indian Summer was all about FILLING OUR CUP, from the inside out and as we we move through Autumn, our Metal Element, we continue this work
In Autumn, you’ll notice, our energy starts to change, it gets QUIETER and we begin to SLOW DOWN and TURN INWARD
The days start to get cooler and shorter and we realise we no longer have the expansive and MASCULINE energy of Summer supporting us to take action and get everything done that we want to get done
Autumn is the beginning of the YIN phase of our year, our YIN or FEMININE energy is aligned with this season, which is COOLER, CALMER and more INTROSPECTIVE than our YANG energy, that comes in warmer seasons of Spring and Summer
Autumn is our METAL ELEMENT and is associated with our Lung and Large Intestine energy
Our Lungs and our Large Intestine are our ELIMINATION organs
They both ABSORB WHAT IS GOOD FOR US and RELEASE what isn’t
And so our theme for Autumn is LETTING GO
It is in the process of letting go of WHAT IS NOT SERVING US, that we in turn CREATE SPACE for NEW THINGS THAT DO !
When we hang onto THOUGHTS, HABITS, RELATIONSHIPS, MEMORIES, BEHAVIOURS and PATTERNS that are not serving us, we lose valuable ENERGY and we come to realise that by doing so, we are in reality, the cause of our own SUFFERING
Life is a constant FLOW and CYCLE of change that can happen almost EFFORTLESSLY if we ALLOW it. Our ILLNESS, FATGUE and IMBALANCE comes when we try to HANG ON to the things that are not supporting us in becoming the BEST VERSION OF OURSELVES
We become out of ALIGNMENT with our HIGHEST GOOD and those emotions of feeling STUCK, HEAVY, OVERWHELMED and BLOCKED are simply FEEDBACK that something needs to change
What is weighing you down?
What feels stuck, heavy or burdensome?
What part of those things are in your control and what aren’t?
What can you release that isn’t yours to change, to fix, or to accept?
If our LUNG energy is out of balance we will experience feelings of
GRIEF, LOSS, SEPARATION, HOPELESSNESS and A LACK OF SELF WORTH
If we are in balance and nourishing our Lung energy we will experience feelings of
HOPE, VITALITY and OPTIMISM
If our LARGE INTESTINE energy is out of balance we will feel
STUCK, STUBBORN and JUDGEMENTAL (of ourselves and of others )
If we are in balance and nourishing our Large Intestine energy then we will feel FLOW and DISCERNMENT, we will easily know what serves us and what doesn’t, without getting stuck in repetitive UNRESOURCEFUL thought patterns or behaviours
If you are a Yogi, our YOGA PRACTICE changes with the seasons also
To nourish and support ourselves through Autumn our yoga starts to include more CHEST OPENING poses to open the Lungs and also poses like PIGEON/SLEEPING SWAN and SHOELACE where we can access the LI meridian that runs down the outside of the thighs
(if you’d love to balance your Metal energy, you can have unlimited access to an Autumn Yin Yoga Practice by clicking on the link below)
There is a strong connection to the Divine and to our Self – Worth in Autumn and I dive deeper into that in the Autumn Webinar available below, as it is such a juicy topic that needs more time and guidance than I can provide here
The life Lesson for Autumn is to
RECONNECT WITH THE TRUTH OF ONESELF AS DIVINE,
exactly as you are – RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW
To know that you are WORTHY and that you are ENOUGH and that you deserve to have a life that you LOVE
To understand that when you EMBODY this,
you WILL LET GO of what is keeping you from this
I always love the analogy of the trees losing their leaves in this season
As we move into Winter we need to CONSERVE our precious energy, so we shed our leaves, the things that don’t support and nourish us. What this means is that in our lowest energy months, we are not LEAKING ENERGY on things that are no longer for our HIGHEST GOOD
It is with this practice of ACKNOWLEDGING and HONOURING our PAST EXPERIENCES,
that we SHED THE OLD TO MAKE WAY FOR THE NEW
So we can MOVE FORWARD with GRATITUDE
