I have been enamored with the falling leaves. Where I live in northern California, some trees are bare, while others are slowly dropping their leaves and still others are working on their changing of colors.
The sounds of the leaves falling, the shift for many from bright vibrant shades of red and gold to yellow and brown, the fact that every tree is moving and transforming at its own pace are all reminders of the uniqueness of our own transformations and evolutions.
We do not all change and shed and grow together. Each of us has our own rhythm and pace.
Nature can be such a steady guide when we take the time to truly notice what she is telling us.
Where are you at in your own rhythm Wise Ones? Are you still exploring what you are ready to release, are you in progress or are you feeling the freedom (and vulnerability) of letting go?
Meditate in silence on what you might be ready to release, surrender, offer up.
Choose clothing items to represent these things.
You might consider the weight of fabric and the feel of it on your skin and correlate this with the emotional or mental weight the things are ready to let go of.
Dress yourself in these items and sit for 5-10 minutes in quiet feeling the sensation of all these items.
Slowly and intentionally remove each of the items, one at a time. Pausing for a moment to notice the shift in sensation as you take these off. Notice if there is an urge to hang on to one item or another.
When you have removed all the items you chose sit for another 5-10 minutes meditating on the experience of feeling lighter, more vulnerable.
Journal about this.
You might complete the ritual with a shower or bath to symbolize the cleansing and clearing this experience offered.
