Autumn is a wonderful season of turning and transition. The leaves change colors, and the weather shifts. It’s an excellent time to revisit those spiritual practices that help us turn our attention from the noise in our world to that deeper, more peaceful, more authentic place within us all.
Autumn is also a time for gathering and celebrating the harvest, home, and holidays with friends and family. It’s a time to celebrate this life journey.
Life moves in a great cycle of seasons and change. We have the power to choose how we experience this cycle, so choose wisely. Remember that we draw people and experiences into our lives through the energy we hold. Our thoughts, words, and feelings are powerful tools for creating our lives. What we focus our attention and energy on is drawn to us. It’s not magic or a punishment/reward. It is simply the working of Spiritual Law.
If autumn is the time for the ending of one cycle and the beginning of another, then use this time to prepare for a new experience in your life. Take a class or two, read a great book, gather with like-minded people, and celebrate yourself. Establish a new vibration in consciousness and plant seeds for a brand new you.
In the words of Marianne Williamson, “Always be open to new beginnings. To the universe, every moment starts the next big thing in your life.”
