Ahhhh Autumn

Tomorrow is the first day of Autumn. I love this season. The colors Mother Earth wears are intense reds, yellows, purples and browns. Farmers are harvesting the last of their crops. It's a time of celebration for all of our blessings. It feels so rich and abundant!
Autumn is also a time of clean-up, recognition, thanksgiving and preparation for going within. As an equinox, it's a balance point between the light and the dark. I love using a seasons energies to follow a more natural way of living.

Let me suggest taking some time to be grateful for all you've 'harvested' so far this year. Let yourself clean up anything that is no longer serving you. Let go of any emotional baggage you're still dragging around. Accept that you might have shadows and sorrows, and embrace them - they are a real part of your experience - but don't let them drag you down. Understand that a healthy spiritual life finds balance in all things. Make plans for acknowledging all your Beloveds - those that are here and those that are not. And be grateful.

I want to let Gratitude be my Beingness this season. I'm going to take more time to do things. I'm going to eat slower. As grateful as I am for technology, I'm going to put down my smartphone or tablet, push away from the computer and limit my TV time. I'm going to look into the eyes of my family, friends and pets, or at the changing colors of nature, and be fully present in as many moments as I can. I'm going to experience Autumn.

The seasons of the year and the seasons of our lives are changing quickly. Let's enjoy every moment!

Affirmative Prayer:

The I Am That I Am is fully present within me. I celebrate this awareness. I let the Truth of It flood my being. I feel the Power and the Love. I am aware of Infinite Intelligence and perfect Grace.

Love blesses me as I choose to live in the present moment. I let go of trying to hang on to the past. I celebrate all I have done, all I have harvested by right of my consciousness. I know with God even more good things are possible in my life. I choose wisely what I want to experience and my life is filled with love, peace, beauty and laughter.

I acknowledge the gifts of The Divine. I gratefully stay in the present moment, honoring all that shows up as a reflection of the God consciousness within. God is good, and all is well in my life.

I release these words to the Law of Mind, knowing they are already so. I have revealed my Truth, and this is good. And so it is.
