Each of the seasons has its own particular energy that represents where nature is in its recurring cycle of birth, transformation, and death. As a being who is closely connected to—and directly affected by—the rhythms of nature, you can capture and use the energy of the season by moving through your own seasonal process.
In the months when summer transitions to fall, nature prepares for the coming changes by shedding what it no longer needs. In many ways, the energy of winter is synonymous with death—as foliage appears to die, the ground freezes over, and the days become darker.
However, winter is really about hibernation and the incubation of what will be renewed again with the coming of spring. In actuality, there is no death—just a long, deep sleep as nature’s energy changes form.
Fall is the season that prepares nature for the pruning process which will ultimately result in seeds being planted for the next chapter. It’s a great time to take an inventory of what you need to trim back or tend to differently as you settle inward for the coming months.
Imagine, for a moment, you are about to begin a journey of preparing for a long winter. During this time, you know that the days will be shorter, the temperature will be colder, and some of your creature comforts won’t be available. What do you want to let go of? What has become too burdensome or unnecessary on your journey?
At some point, it becomes apparent that you have accumulated far too much baggage. You’ve been lugging it around for far too long and life feels heavy. It’s time to unload—drop a few thousand dead leaves and prune a couple hundred branches.
Like nature, you need to clear out the thick brush and rid yourself of things you’ve been afraid to let go of. It’s time to abandon the rules of society that seek to convince you it’s not acceptable to speak your truth—to quiet that voice that convinces you to stay uncomfortably comfortable right where you are.
Now is a good time to shed anything that binds you to your indignant and stubborn ways of sabotaging your dreams. Without pruning, there can be no new growth.
During this fall season, retreat inward, light a candle, and see what cobwebs need clearing.
Try this guided meditation to tune in, listen, and reflect on where you are in your life.
the lifestyle you want to have when you wake up from your deep sleep
Let your imagination run wild and allow yourself to see what you would see, to hear what you would hear, and to feel what you would feel if your dream came true.
This will help you take charge of your life. It’s a process of letting go of anything that isn’t you—toxic relationships, limiting beliefs, and obstacles that prevent you from living your dream. It allows you to take responsibility for every choice you make and every action you take (or don’t take). Whenever you begin a new path, anything you haven’t cleared out or brought to completion will follow you onto the new path, so now is the time to let go of anything you need to leave behind as you begin a new season.
Approach the fall with anticipation, preparation, and excitement. Observe its energy and watch as it cyclically moves through its phases—transitioning from one moment to the next, sometimes intensely and sometimes gently.
Nature moves slowly and deliberately toward harmony and sustainability. It intrinsically knows what it needs to do and simply does it. You can learn a lot by tuning into this process in your own life—if you slow down enough and pay close attention.
