Why Autumn Is a Perfect Time to Let GoIf we follow the Rhythm of nature during the Autumn season, we observe the release of dried leaves. We see that nature forgets about the past, moves away from what no longer serves her, and steps into a state of transformation. Fall represents the perfect time to take a look at yourself and your life as it is now, and ask yourself, “Am I happy with my life as it is? Are there any internal or external blocks that keep me from moving to where I want to go? Is there anything I want to let go of?” Most people, myself included, have habits, behaviors, attitudes, or thoughts they know are not supporting their journey, yet, don't let go. Today, I invite you to take advantage of the energy and motivation mother nature is giving up to choose to release what no longer serves you and invite the feelings, moments, and experiences you want to have in your life. There are multiples ways to do this, but I’m going to mention my 3 favorite activities.
3 Tools for How To Let Go
- Journal daily. This is a great daily practice that brings self-awareness, compassion, and relief. Simply write anything and see where it takes you. If you like more structure, you can start writing about something in your life you don’t like and write down 1 or 2 things you can start doing today to change your reality. It is important for your journal daily so you can slowly move from the awkwardness that comes when writing “Dear diary” and start looking at yourself from another perspective. You’ll find you already have the answers you needed after a few days.
- Practice a burning bowl ceremony. This is a beautiful ceremony where you use fire to cleanse your body, soul, and mind from negativity and manifest what you want to have in your life. Observing the fire burning what you want to release gives a sense of liberation and will empower you. There are lots of information on how to practice this and you can check my social media and website for more info.
- Dance it out. This is the physical release of what you no longer want also known as Ecstatic dance. This is a meaningful dance where you abandon yourself to the rhythm of the music and give your body the freedom to express itself without judgment. Practicing this to release negative feelings is a blissful way to let go.
