Whenever the seasons change, if from winter into spring and summer or from summer into fall I get inspired to initiate change in my life. I am ready.
Ready to change my diet, start a new exercise routine, I clean out the closets and move the over sized Sweaters to the front the Jeans and boots are getting dusted off and the hand knitted Scarves I have been waiting to wear since I finished knitting them are right next to them.
The fresh crisp cold air invites to a bonfire hot cocoa and warm Tea. It is the time to pick apples and review your Recipe book for those comfort foods, Stews and homemade breads.
The scents in my diffusers and candles change, the warm Blankets will find their home on the Couch, ready to warm up cold bones .
Fall season 1 – fall season change
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Ghandi
Not just the physical change is important to me during this time, it is also the Season when the Harvest Moon shows up, always a little later in the evening than the other full moons during the Year, days became shorter and nights longer following the Autumnal Equinox. This is the time when I feel the need to shed negative thought patterns and rid myself of anything that is making me feel uncomfortable.
It could be work, friends, a Chair in my house that just does not feel right, a Jacket that does not fit or food in the Fridge that just does not call my name. I seem to be much more entuned with my intuition during Fall and many major changes have taken place in my life during that time.
Change keeps us alive and in the present, it keeps us going and is the only constant you can rely on, so embrace it, honor it, do not fear it ! move with the change and you will learn that just like mother nature, things need to come to an end to make room for the next new. It is not a time of “the end” it is a time of rebirth.
Listen to your inner voice, now that the hustle and bustle of the Summer is dying down and it is more quiet, it is easier to focus and look inside yourself. Reflect on what lays behind and focus on change, use the change of season and it’s energy to move forward.
