Out with the Old - Autumn is Here
So, that’s it. Out of nowhere the Autumn equinox has been and gone and the days have already started to grow noticeably shorter. The ground is covered in soggy wet leaves and, for those of us with dogs, we’re back to paw wiping several times a day (oh joy!).
But if there’s one thing we Disco Fairies adore about Autumn, it’s all those colours. Wall-to-wall green replaced by shocks of vibrant reds, browns and oranges. Because we love a bit of seasonal colour change, here’s what we’ve created to help support Mother Nature every step of the way :)
Autumn just looks like, well, Autumn! With all the colours representing this awesome season of change, it’s got everything you need to power you through to Spring.
How about a touch of Indigo for starters? A great one to help us prepare for colder days to come as it’s all about mental clarity, wisdom and understanding.
Then there’s the beautiful Spirit encompassing calming blues, the colour of tranquility, truth and connection to the world around us.
Another thing I personally love about Autumn is using it as a time to prepare for my favourite winter pastime - hunkering down. Much like the trees are happy to let go of the leaves that have given them life since Spring, this is definitely the time of year for us to let go of the old and basically have a good clear out.
In Chinese medicine , autumn is definitely considered the time for clearing, and not just physically either. (Bring on the mental clarity of Indigo!)
As we all know, it’s hard to let go but, when you do, it feels so good, and there’s nothing better than a pre-Xmas charity drop. I did it recently. Books that I’ve read and won’t read again. Clothes I’ve carried around for years that I’ll never wear. Dresses and suits from a past life.
So why not give it a go? Start with the clothes. My rule is anything I haven’t worn for a year should be up for scrutiny. Can I picture myself wearing it..? No? Thought not. Out it goes.
Next scan those bookshelves for the ones you’ll never read and pass them on for
someone else to enjoy. DVDs is a good one too, for those who still have them…
Wishing you happiness and love for a season of lightness and brightness!
