A time to start looking at letting go of the old, out dated ways of being and opening to new possibilities…
When it comes to the turning of the seasons, this is not an instant process but one that gathers momentum. the land waits for the treas to start releasing their leaves, the vegetation slows down loosing their potency, the clouds and the weather gently gather pace. The c;lours are changing from bright greens and an array of different colours turning brown, golden,muted reds and sand colours come into play before the plant kingdom sheds its self of its coatings of many colours. Night meets day equally at the turning of the equinox, moving slowly towards the darker month, the sun is lower in the sky bring stunning sunsets and the cooler winds are coming in.
Warmer clothes are to be worn and diets changed to meet the coming winter. We start to tend our gardens to meet the harsher conditions to come, we plant bulbs and winter vegetables, our exercises may change, due to the changing needs of our bodies. These are but a few things, there are many more to notice as we move into this changing time.
The autumn equinox asks of us to revue where we have come from over the past year. What we are thankful and grateful for and what has made us feel low and frustrated.
Two thirds of the year has passed us by and with it many different life experiences. When you start to look back with intent you will see that some experiences are normal usual routine things that we all must do like sleep, eat, cleanse ourselves. Other activities may have pushed you out of your comfort zone, Did you enjoy these time, did they make you feel alive and vibrant and living in the moment. Other times which may have been really hard, draining, challenging times, what did you learn from them?
Look at whether your work is giving you as much satisfaction as you would like it, are you happy where you are living, how do people treat you and you them, does any one press your ‘buttons’ and if so what are the messages there for you to absorb and to learn from. How are your emotions and your diet, are you craving comfort food, healthy food and do you just eat what you are given. What allergies have come up for you over the spring and summer, is there anything to change within your being to help with these for next year, it might be worth researching this before the spring comes again.
What have you harvested within your experiences, are your pantries full of beautiful produce, is your heart content with what has come to you? If Yes, this indicates that you are flowing in the right direction. If you answer No This may be a time of releasing old fears, like the trees releasing their leaves. look into old habits that have not served you well, old belief systems that you may have got stuck into that has kept you separate from unity.
Are there experiences that made you feel the darker side of your being react, is there anything for you to contemplate and process.
As we do this we may have to go deep and bare our souls (as the trees become naked, so can we) Give yourself a chance to open to this changing energy. Notice when you need to shed a layer, take a rest or revitalise your being with change.We can choose to release our deepest fears, our lower frequencies of trapped emotions and as this starts to happen you are becoming freer to explore new ideas and experiences.
Move with trust that the Universe will offer new opportunities and support for where you are moving on your journey.You start to flow with the natural Universe, Not what we have thought we have seen and what we judge as correct. Our walls start to fall down and we open to new energies, new ways of being that are more inline with what our natural state is.
Like the seasons we die to our selves as we let go of all the old outdated ways of being. This isn’t just on a personal level, but on a human level as we look into releasing the old fears and move toward freedom.
Namaste to you all xxx
