Obviously, the seasons differ depending on where you are. However, you can tune into these shifts -- even if they are subtle -- so that you are aware of what you may be feeling and experiencing. After the fall equinox (in the northern hemisphere) our days begin to shorten, so there is less light as we move into fall.
For me, at this time of year, I am tired, my energy is lower than that of summer (with the loooong days and lots of light). Sometimes a little chill in the air and I have that need for being cozy, baking, laying with my cat and dog (not much you can do when your cat comes up and sits on you hahahaah). A perfect reminder to be present, still, thoughtful, quiet, contemplative maybe even reflective as we move into the last quarter of the year.
What do you still want to accomplish this year? Or what seeds do you want to plant for 2020? After your morning meditation (it’s only 3 minutes!!!!), ask yourself these questions. Journal what comes to mind. Just spit it out onto the paper. See where you are now and what you want to do that you haven’t been doing, but want to. Do one of these things. It can be simple. But just do it. Take the action.
As Mel Robbins says, “say, 5,4,3,2,1 and then get up and do it.” Your brain is scrambled by counting backwards hahaha so your monkey mind won’t be able to stop you. Enjoy the transition of the season, the weather change, honor your shift in energy and take care of yourself so you stay healthy. Happy fall.
Keep up with the September meditation. It is perfect for the seasonal transition!
Love to you all.
