“Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop” – Rumi

With the arrival of the Autumnal season, the above quote from Rumi has been dancing in my head. Watching the seasons change and the leaves on the trees slowly evolve from green, to reddish golds, has put me in a contemplative mood of self discovery. Autumn is the perfect time to take stock of who you are and the things that you carry with you, from thought processes, defense mechanisms, habits and all sorts of other things, that may no longer serve you, and begin the process of acknowledging the lessons learned and releasing these old ways to the universe. 
What dead leaves are you carrying, that you would benefit from letting go of?  Oftentimes we don’t realize when certain leaves have died and no longer serve us in our journey. Our fear, anger, aggression and other negative emotions, may have served us during times when we felt that we needed additional emotional protection, but now are blocking us from receiving the love and positivity that we so deeply desire and crave.

Autumn is the perfect time of release, so the seeds of our desires can be planted and nourished with intention through the Winter, and bloom in the Spring. Autumn is an excellent time to make the conscious effort to take stock of our true desires, and ensure that what we desire inwardly is being reflected outwardly.

Autumn Affirmations:
I reflect my inward light on to all those I come in contact with 
I release that which no longer serves me 
I welcome love and light into my heart
I am the change I want to see in the world 
I make room in my heart for love 
I make room in my heart for joy 
I send gratitude to past lessons 
I open my arms to receive my present blessings 
I send love and light to myself and to others
