Fall is the beginning of the yin cycle and a time of harvest and storage. And with Fall's presence comes a cycle that supports organizing your life and going more within your mind and body to reflect on everything, as opposed to the more external, Fire element that Summer engaged us with. The Autumn season, according to Oriental medicine, is associated with the element of Metal, which reflects the energy of organization, communication, order, the mind, and protecting boundaries. It's a good time for putting closure to projects started and a good time to begin more introspective projects.
The beautiful fall energy and leaves provide inspiration and support personal growth, especially for developing your sense of awareness and intuition of everything within your internal environment and how that is reflecting in your external world. They also signify transformation and endings that create the opportunity for new doors of beginnings to open.
With Scorpio's energy in both the Sun and Saturn currently, this is adding to the need to be conscious about the inner experience more than ever. I keep hearing how many are going through some pretty heavy and crazy things right now that seem to be hitting out of no where, just like that quick sting of the Scorpion, when you least expect it - job losses, relationship break-ups, loved ones transitioning, illness, life shifts, etc. However, the more you consciously tune within, the less likely the surprises need to have such adverse affects on your well-being. Everything is in transition and transforming - purging if you may - in order for the new to emerge and take form. If you are going through challenges, remember you have family, friends and support systems that can assist. You need only to ask. Cultivating gratitude and building trust that you will be supported and loved through the process while things shift into new inspiration for what's to come will make a difference. Be loving and patient with yourself through it all.
Things are constantly shifting. There is no time to worry and expend on what has passed, if you're busy creating in the moment. That energy of the moment will shift anything unpleasant that "has" been and allows everything to start anew if you choose. That does not mean you condone or forget even though you forgive, but wisdom carries over, ensuring you do not repeat certain choices and learns to process more effectively anything else that presents itself. Not only is energy shifting rapidly, but so are we. People do have the ability to change overnight so it is wise to suspend conditioned judgments, which are anchored in the past and do not reflect the new loving intentions desired, as we may be losing out on the fullness of experiences and present opportunities.
I've been reflecting on a lot of things myself, recently, and like clock-work had retreated more within, a bit ahead of schedule. I've found myself spending more time in nature, by the ocean, reading significant books I was drawn to, working with powerful new crystals and celestial support systems, creating and building new things, delving beneath the surface of everything that comes up in my experience, then re-evaluating and shifting it all immediately, learning to honor my intuition implicitly and embracing my origins, receiving more profound messages and following them, creating radical visions I'm working towards that will completely flip my world (ironically, more in alignment) - yeah you could say this all coincides well with the Scorpio energy. But I'm working to stay on top of the energy, so when the stings come in, I either transmute it, or avoid it. I'm learning to hone in on the power of alchemy and more deeply supporting what I know in my heart. It's a daily practice that is not only enjoyable, but creates immediate results. We all have human emotions that express themselves when triggered. The key is in learning how to process them so we regain control rather than allow anything to take control over us.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.... ~Charles Dickens
Two sides of the coin exist simultaneously and at any moment we can choose which to focus on and experience. At the same time, if you are experiencing one, as in pain or struggles, then know you are simply on the leg of the journey back to its flip side.
In the midst of change I've been busy creating what is reflective of my heart's mission. Everything continually evolves and I'm constantly excited by what emerges from the transformative ashes. I feel a greater layer of depth and commitment has been reached within that connects me with more peace and joy as I honor it. A lot is changing in my environment, as reflection of my inner experience shifting, including the crystals I work with, am releasing, and other purging both energetically and literally. In essence, I'm honoring the ways that are native to me.
Have you found yourself feeling and doing similar? If so, it is aligned with our return to natural harmony, which starts within each of us and then reflects outwardly.
There will be new things to share in the coming months and new year, along with some expansive developments I'm intending towards manifesting - very excited! I know many of you have big dreams or intents you are working towards too and now is the perfect time to utilize all that you have available and that you've learned, in order to create it.
For now, I'm living in the creation of the moment with my current focuses and work, while supporting others and finding new ways I can be of greater service, which stems from channeling what is most authentic for me. The personal expressions of our individual gifts build the strength of the collective fabric.
I will be away on vacation in the Caribbean, on the small island of Grenada between 11/4 - 11/12 without email access and outside world contact. The journeys I am guided to always prove fruitful in invaluable gifts. So I look forward to this immensely and how it will reflect in my creations. If you have anything you would like to contact me about that is time sensitive, please do so before the 4th or after the 12th, as I will not be able to get in touch.
This Fall's updates and new annoucements can be found below, including my upcoming art gallery exhibit with 2 fun reception celebrations, a compassionate event and silent auction, our Bimini Retreat that is nearing, in home Reiki treatments for locals, a brand new art workshop series, and a chance to attend the Pendulum 101 class again.
I wish you abundant peace to fill your heart and magical gifts to fill your journey.
