Autumn is full upon us now. We turn our backs on summer and orient ourselves toward the lengthening shadows of oncoming winter. Here, we count the many blessings of our internal harvest. There is much to give thanks for. Take a moment now to notice those things and give thanks. You can do this by feeling gratitude and expressing that either silently or out loud. Really allow yourself to feel gratitude. Breathe into it. Notice how it expands with your breath.
And note as well what we are letting go of. What is no longer sustainable? Imagine it as an autumn leaf picked up by the wind and carried away from you. Let it go. Give thanks for this, too. For the release as well as the space it leaves within you.
These cycles are always at work within us. Their outer manifestation as seasonal change helps remind us to go within and find what is reflected there.
Something is always coming into being. Something is always passing away. Something always abides beneath the changes. What is that something in you?
In identifying and naming the core which abides, we honor and strengthen it. Align with the part of you which is already whole, healthy and smiling.
