Autumn. Fall. Metal. A season of letting go. .
5 Elements and the season of Metal (air). This is the time for letting go. In nature, this signals the end of harvest, trees shed their leaves and prepare for a time of going inward. .
Grief is the emotion of the Metal element, feeling loss, and letting-go cleanses us of what is no longer needed... this is a time to clear the clutter in our minds and surroundings. .
Here are some ways to live in harmony with this season:
•Go through your closet, desk, garage, medicine cabinet - any cluttered storage area-and discard what you no longer need. Then donate, sell, or otherwise circulate what might be of value to others.
•Do a mental inventory: Examine attitudes (prejudices, envies, hatreds, jealousies, resentments) stored within your psyche. When possible, contact those with whom you harbor old "stuff." Attempt to resolve the hurtful old issues, and then let them go.
•For issues you cannot resolve directly with others, or for old issues with yourself, write them on paper, being as specific as possible. Then burn the paper, symbolically releasing the content.
•Take time each day to breathe slowly and deeply. As you inhale the clean autumn air, feel yourself energized and purified. Feel the old negativity, impurity, and pain leave your body and psyche. Then contemplate briefly who you are without these identifications.... #autumn #fiveelements #fall #letgo #metal #grief #clear #breathe #gratitude #universe #declutter #purify #harmony #cycle #nature #unicorndreamswholistictouch @zenkneads @unicorndreamswholistic
