FALL: the season of letting in + letting go
(the lungs and the large intestine)
We are forever in a state of flow and fluidity. As the seasons flux, we are offered opportunities to choose to morph in positive ways. What we focus on, or how we balance can differ in regards to the season.
Fall is a valued time to focus on FORGIVING and RELEASING the unnecessary in order to relax into transforming or moving forth. If we let go of what does not nourish, space is made for nourishment. This can be physical, material, or meta-physical. One feeds the other! Sometimes we may begin with organizing our environment or schedule, only to find that our minds have followed suit.
CONSIDER: the lungs are a very exterior organ, receiving and filtering what encourages life and energy. Yet, they have to let the breath pass in order to receive the next and the same can be said for the process of the large intestine. Recognize the sense of easy fluctuation in the home, body or mind. Do you hold on to items that can be cleared? Are there thoughts or spaces in the body that seem stuck? Where can breath make space? What does it feel like to move forward into the next moment?
ELEMENT: METAL! We love metal, and Slayer and Sabbath here, but this Metal is about something else!
"Metal is about letting go. Successful letting go is repeated, conscious letting go."
The lungs breathe in new breath and the large intestine lets go of what we don't need.
Release and Inspiration - change into moving forth. Practice tiny moments of newness, tiny layers of clearing in order to evolve.
POTENTIAL: this is a positive time to find a healthy routine while also changing old habits. What would nourish you and what holds you back? (body, mind or surroundings)
For this season it's excellent to shift from cold to warm. Drink warmth, eat warmth, think inward warmth!
