Wisdom for Your Autumn Equinox

autumn-equinox-wisdom.jpg

The season is changing and things are beginning to transform around and within us. Because we are intrinsically a part of nature it is wise to follow it's rhythms as it is reflecting something back to us about ourselves. Each change of the season is an opportunity to learn more about ourselves and make the adjustments or changes necessary to align with where life is guiding us to grow, heal, and thrive. The wise ones that came before us followed the cycles of nature not only to grow and harvest food and the necessities for survival but also to plan and create their lives emotionally, mentally, & spiritually.

MysticMamma shares, "We have been actively working and expressing…putting ourselves and our ideas out into the world, growing and changing. Now is the time to pause, go within, and take stock of how far we have come.

 

Our inner work, our growth, is our harvest. Time to honor our journey and the rebalancing that has taken place within us. Notice the seeds we planted and how they have blossomed thus far. Let’s open our hearts in gratitude."

I tuned into my ancestral guides to see what they had to share about this season at this time.

Autumn Message from Spirit:

Too often we see you focusing on what hasn't come yet. What hasn't bloomed. What you are still wanting to see in your life. You will never see it, if you don't pay attention to what has already come. What is here now is the secret to what follows. The gifts and blessing we have already brought you. The trees are thanking the heavens for what has bloomed and giving it back to the earth as we speak. Watch them. Learn from them. Have you noticed what has come in the form of gifts to you as well as in the form of lessons? Did you notice where your power shined and where it needs more awakening? Did you notice where we loved and supported you? The accomplishments we guided you through? Are you grateful? Show your gratitude in your thoughts this season. Reflect with us deeply on what has come. It's time to reflect again about where your life is so that you can fully know where it must go. Take your time. Sit with this. Sit with us as autumn invites you to slow down.

The energy of Fall:

  • Yin {feminine}
  • Emotional, reflective, mysterious
  • Element: Metal
  • Metal represents our mental activity such as intellect and the ability to reason, memory, thoughts, knowledge and comprehension. Metal governs organization, order, communication, the mind, setting limits, and protecting boundaries

Tools for Autumn:

  • Crystals: Carnelian, Amethyst, Amber
  • Aromatic Essential Oils: Lavender {to uplift your mood + spirit}, Tea tree {to support your immune system}
  • The days are getting shorter, and the nights longer. Keep a dream journal. More messages may come through in this season.
  • Smudge daily or often. As winter comes, many fall into sadness and depressive states. This is a shedding and perfectly normal as long as you don't let it that energy linger too long. Constantly feel and clear your energy.
  • Clean, Clear, & Declutter your space. You'll be spending more time indoors, so create a space the supports your healing.
  • It's time for rest. Stop pushing. Sleep sounds so simple and basic and for that we take it for granted. It a very spiritually powerful time for you body and spirit.
