Do you find Autumn to be as magical a time of year as I do? The season of Yin, Feminine energy and receptivity, Fall offers many gifts and opportunities for self-connection through embodiment.
During autumn, it’s natural that we wish to draw inward and reflect. We may feel slower and quieter than we did during the summer— and this is as Nature intended it to be. This is not a time to force or push ourselves to achieve and do more, but instead an opportunity to reconnect with what’s most important to us, to care for our bodies on a deeper level, and to increase our spiritual practices for self connection. Think of it as a time to amplify the “coziness factor” that is already present and that you may be tapping into right now.
A period of rest and reflection, Fall can bring more of a desire to draw inward. Much like a bear hibernates in the winter months, so too do we wish to slow down, rest and reflect.
When we align with the energetics nature provides us, we can create greater levels of peace and embodied presence. We can also take a necessary pause on productivity and support our ambitions through reflection and re-centering. We can also use this time to create greater radiance from the inside out.
Now is an excellent time to connect to your body and your intuition, relishing in slower, sensory-oriented activities that support embodiment and inner clarity at the deepest levels possible.
As we enter Fall, you may wish to play with new ways of supporting yourself or amplify your current practices.
Get to bed early. The hours of 10 PM to 6 AM are best for the most restorative sleep. Don’t be surprised if you feel more tired during the Fall and Winter months, your body needs the longer hours of darkness for rest and regeneration. The more you can support these natural inclinations, the better you’ll feel on all levels.
Create a luxurious morning and / or evening ritual that stimulates each of your senses. Anoint yourself with your favorite essential oils or Agua de Florida. Burn incense or sacred plant smoke. Place your hands on your body and breathe deeply in silence for several breaths. I love starting my mornings with ceremonial cacao, slow, sensuous music, journaling and gentle movement. Here is one of my very favorite playlists to listen to during this time.
Read, just for enjoyment. Preferably fiction or something that feels like a respite or vacation from your day.
Take long baths Add candles, epsom salts, nourishing herbs, incense and music.
Move more slowly. Align your rhythm with the pace of nature – dance, walk in nature, coordinate your movement to deep, full breaths. Now is a great time to use this moving meditation to support your embodied flow.
Slow the pace of linear time. Remove things from your schedule and to do list. What doesn’t bring you joy or light you up? Remove it from your schedule. It’s ok to let it go and take more time for yourself.
Take care of your skin using high quality organic products. Consider the beautiful Ayurvedic ritual of dry brushing, or self-massage with luxurious body oil.
