THE SEASON OF AUTUMN AND THE METAL ELEMENT
One of the great things about working with the laws of Nature, is that when you follow the message of the season, results happen more quickly and more easily. Look to what Nature is doing in the plant and animal kingdoms, and follow suit.
What's happening in the fall? Are the leaves hanging on to the trees for dear life, refusing to drop? No. They are LETTING GO. Autumn is the season where anytime that you choose to release, to let go, to get rid of the clutter or the excess, the processes will happen more easily and the results will be more fruitful.
Weight loss, re-organizing, getting rid of limiting beliefs, ending or re-assessing relationships that have been stuck, letting go of that which no longer serves you--these are the actions that you can take in autumn and see substantive results.
