The weather here in Northern California has been very warm this month but hints of autumn have been in the cool breezes. Our tomato plants have been fading while my neighbor’s persimmon trees are just coming into bloom.
There is something mystical about the changing of the season and this season in particular. The way the new season is slowly changing and moving back and forth brings to mind the way so many are healing and learning right now. There have been some big shifts and dramatic life events in the past year. You have cleared so much, especially around personal power and self-worth. You are now learning to embrace your true self. There is a new sense of excitement and direction coupled with fleeting fear and anxiety.
There are many great changes to come before things feel more settled, but please know part of this journey is accepting change. At times it feels as if nothing is happening-but at those times is when all your deep inner work is manifesting. You may feel a little more tired, deep breathing and relaxation will alleviate exhaustion. As will doing the things you love.
This is a time to be open, yet closed. Ground yourself daily. Practice lots of self-care. Put striving on hold and enjoy living. Remember joy! Speak the word joy! Yell the word joy!
Many, many blessings-Julie
