Let’s imagine…”What if”….you sat down one day–effortlessly, comfortably–as though you were in a magical time bubble. You sat and simply watched nature in all Her mystery do what She does best? Seasons shifting, birth, growth, life, death. Sunsets and sunrises. Full moon to new moon. What might you learn or discover?
As we move through Autumn in all its glorious colors and crisp temps, we may notice the subtle shifts from within to start letting things go. Trees cloak themselves in a riot of reds, golds, and oranges, and then let the leaves fall. Instead of trying to hold onto them, they know that after a period of rest something new will appear.
It’s like keeping your closet filled with only those things you wear on a regular basis. If you never get rid of old clothes, you will run out of space for new clothes.
“Be like a tree, and let the dead leaves drop.” ~Rumi
Consider some of the following ways to lighten the load:
- Let go of one, two, or more of your insecurities. Replace them with affirmations.
- Let go of grudges.
- Forgive someone.
- Forgive yourself.
- Simplify your schedule. Re-prioritize, and prune to the essentials.
- Stop trying to people-please.
- Clean out one drawer a week.
- Pranayama practice: Exhale for at least 2 counts longer than the inhale. Practice for 10 rounds.
This month in class, we are focusing on releasing 🤲🏼 in order to manifest, grounding 🌍 so that we feel safe to let go, and soothing pranayama 🫁 breath work. If you haven’t tried one of my classes on MOXIE yet, I’m dropping you a FREE CLASS PASS!
The newest exercise video is out! Opposite arm/leg raise–sometimes called ‘bird dog’–a simple and very effective core strengthening exercise. Please find it HERE.
In closing, may you find satisfaction in letting go of something, enjoy some good walks in the fresh crisp air of fall, and some some delicious pumpkin spice!
