Throughout the year animals and plants respond to the seasons.
In spring the sap rises in the trees, there is new growth, flowers, nesting, birthing of new life. Everything is warming and expanding!
Summer is hot and fully expanded. Its a time to have fun, enjoy life and have plenty. Autumn is cooling and condensing. Everything is ripe and ready for harvest. Food and nuts are gathered and stored, in readiness for winter. The trees loose their leaves and animals make their winter home. Winter is cold and contracted. It is time to batten down the hatches and hibernate. To slow down, rest, contemplate and dream.
There is a natural flow of energy which we humans seem to be too busy to notice - for if we did we could definately harness it and use it for our betterment.
How do we harness the energy of autumn? Autumn is a time of gathering, storing, releasing and reflection.
On a practical level we harvest our crops, tidy up the garden, prune back the plants, secure the home in preparation for the winter months. We would also get out the winter clothes and bedding, stack the wood and preserve our food.
Emotionally, autumn is the time to release hurts, grieve our losses and process emotional experiences. We can only do this when all our physical needs are met (and this comes through the summer season). A full harvest means that we can be satisfied with life, and when there is plenty, its easy to let go and release the past. We can release the emotional charge from the past and keep the wisdom of the experiences we have had throughout the year.
Autumn is the time when we are naturally more sensitive. To our environment - knowing the right time to harvest, being aware of the weather so our harvest doesn't get ruined, and there is a push to preserve and store our food. We are emotionally more sensitive too, with the end of the warm summer weather there can be a slight feeling of grief that all the fun and play is over. Fortunately, we also naturally have a stronger sense of courage and honesty at this time, and a sense of pride. This helps us to express ourselves and let the past go. Having loving friends and family around us at this time is very helpful, so creating a gathering to celebrate this season is a wonderful way to feel supported.
When we reflect on our lives in Autumn, appreciate what we have and release what no longer serves us, then we become open to inspiration and vision which arrives in the winter.
After a lovely long holiday and a few days off to spring clean my house, I am finally back at work. Its going to be a busy year for me as I will be travelling to Auckland and Wellington to complete my training as a hypnotherapist.
