I love the energetics of Fall. This time is the beginning of the yin phase of the year. The flow starts to slow down and go inward. The element of fall is METAL. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the metal element is related to our Lungs and Large Intestine, to the emotions of grief & sadness, and to the actions of cleansing & letting go. Makes sense that during this time we might feel low, grieving the loss of summer, and integrating all the experiences we had and the teachings we received. Now is the time to let go. Let go of the excess we might have accumulated during the summer, physically, emotionally and spiritually, that might be making us feel heavy, stagnated or stuck. This is an active time of releasing the old patterns and resetting ourselves to become inspired again by life and start creating a new dream! Breathe is one of the most simple and most powerful tools we have as humans. It is the bridge between the internal and the external. Through our breath we can anchor ourselves, connect to our centre, and to our divine self. And we can LET GO!
