I love the seasonal changes, they bring opportunities to shift consciousness through experiences. A time to re-examine where we are and what we choose to take with us. I have learned my emotions play a vital role in determining where I am and what element needs balance. In Autumn the day is equal and our bodies are preparing to take the energy within, a time of the feminine or the yin energy.
The West is the home of the setting sun, the place Autumn rests and the Bear is the representative of the element of Earth, a perfect place of emotional release.
Introspection and rebirth occur as the bear enters the cave to shed, rest and recover from the season of giving, sharing and energetic play and reap the reward of the harvest. The fall harvest is represented in pumpkins and gourds that decorate our homes in celebration of the next steps and the hard work we have accomplished.
Seasons offer portals and gateways to help elevate awareness to deepen connection. It is the perfect time to let go before we enter the womb of the great Mother, the nurturer the healer, to prepare for what will become.
This is a day of gratitude for all I have received and given. I look to balance my inner and outer world, between my mind and body, emotion and spirit, heaven and earth. I seek the center, to re-evaluate what hinders me, where my thoughts are taking me, what messages I am sending out.
As I reflect on the past I breath in the idea of the possibilities that are in the waiting , and I give thanks to the energies and interactions designed to help me grow. I feel the blessings of all that has shaped me in to this moment.
Happy Autumn Blessings to All!
