Fall: A Time for Release
Updated: Dec 9, 2019
Fall is a favorite time of year for many. The kids are back in school, leaves turn beautiful, vibrant colors, and pumpkin-flavored everything is available. But there's even more to look forward to when fall arrives. Fall is a time for release, not just for Mother Nature or Starbucks' syrup collection, but for us, too.
There is something comforting about fall, but also symbolic trying to grab our attention. Do you know why trees shed their leaves this time of year? It is to help them survive harsh weather conditions of winter. Without the leaves, the tree will be able to preserve its resources until it's time to bloom again. Isn't the beauty and wisdom of Mother Nature amazing?
We can take a cue from Mother Nature to help us understand what we should be during for ourselves when the seasons change. As you watch the leaves fall away and fill lawns and streets, think about what you could let go of to help you be stronger.
What would you like to release and not carry forward with you? Is it anger? Resentment? Hurt? Doubt? Fear? It's OK to feel these things, but if we don't let them go, they will drain our resources and our energy. Just like the leaves of the tree: they are not bad, but there is a point in time when the leaves will no longer serve a purpose and hanging on to them could be detrimental to the overall well-being of the tree. You can shed your "leaves", too. But sometimes you don't consciously know what you need to release to help you move forward and feel your best.
Letting go can be difficult and complicated. You might think you have found resolve from a particular issue, but it actually could still be affecting you in a non-beneficial way. Other times, you might not realize what kind of impact a situation or experience has had on your overall well-being, so you wouldn't even be aware you need to deal with it. That is why caring for your energy is so important.
Caring for Your Energy
You can shed the things you no longer need to help you continue moving forward, preparing you to bloom when the time is right. Use the energy of the autumnal equinox to help you let go with these ideas:
Work with an Energy Healer: An energy healer can help you identify exactly what you need to release and assist you in doing so. I offer a variety of energy healing techniques and know which ones will be most beneficial for each individual client.
Use Essential Oils: Essential oils can help neutralize non-beneficial energetic frequencies affecting you to raise your vibration to a more appropriate level. Popular oils for letting go include the Young Living blends of Forgiveness, Humility, Inner Child, Release, SARA, Surrender, Transformation, or Trauma Life. These blends can be used in a diffuser, applied topically, or add a couple drops to 1/2 cup of Epsom salt to enjoy a detox bath. You can ask me which blend would be most beneficial for you and how to use it.
Spend Time in Nature: Absorb the beautiful, flawless energy Nature Spirits have to offer. Standing barefoot in the grass or soil can help you feel more grounded and connected. Find your favorite spots where you feel that deep soul connection when you visit.
Meditate/Pray: Take time to meditate or simply sit in silence for as long as you can each day. Even just a few minutes is beneficial. You can focus your prayer and meditation by saying "I release what no longer benefits me," or "I release all things blocking me from experiencing my true desires."
