As Fall approaches change ripples through the landscape. How many of us notice? I do. Every year messages begin to send hints of Fall.
In Texas, I notice this late July, early August no matter how hot or dry it may be. Summer has just passed the halfway place and Fall is sending telegrams of arriving soon.
This arrival surprises me each year like a dear friend dropping by unexpectedly. I often discover that I pause, smile and begin to notice what messages of Fall I begin to sense while continuing to Be with Summer experiences. A sweet subtle shift begins to take place. First I notice it in the air. There is a particular scent sending hints of what is to come. I then become aware of the subtle temperature shift even with the HOT 100 degree days.
My daily rhythms begin to subtly shift. First, in my body then life follows ever so gently. I love these experiences every time. My heart expands as I remember to exhale, touch the Earth, the soil and Breathe.
Always a place for me to remember change is happening. Always.
It is now September. Fall is arriving with even more messages. Cooler temperatures begin, the sun shifts in the sky, the clouds change their expression. The sky shows deep, rich and full colorful nuances each turn of the sun. Fresh flowers, dragonflies and baby toads spring up through out SiriSage Sanctuary. Something new this year . . . May fireflies are rising in the dusk into the late night hours. They are in abundance here in the Spring. Sparse in the summer heat although you will see them along the creek & high in the live oak trees. This year they rise the seasons shift. Reflections of the light and landscapes changing daily. I so Love this! What's that saying ? Nerding out? I nerd out with Nature.
Even with all of this bliss there are many severe out of balance ways people have forgotten to care for Life. People have forgotten they are human and of Nature & Spirit. Living out of balance with themselves for periods of time allows for serious mindless actions that continue to harm. We see them daily every where we turn. We may be living in harm out ourselves. How do we return to health and balance. What can we do to help return ourselves, Earth and all who live here to balance?
One way is to remember we are of Nature & Spirit. We must tend to our inner garden again and again. In this way health can prosper and thrive.
When we connect and remember we choose healthier ways of living. This is a natural organic process that nourishes and sustains health in all ways. Health , balance, abundance . . . how these arrive and sustain in our lives is unique to each of us. At times they seem incredibly unreachable and pain filled.
This is why daily, weekly, monthly and/ or seasonal practices that bring us home within are so essential. They do not have to be fancy or elaborate. Nor long and intense even though at times they may be.
Simplicity is a gift. Invite it whenever possible. A few simples : :
A cup of tea or coffee . . . what's your favorite?
Notice the Nature that surrounds you. No matter if large or tiny.
What do you see?
A pause in your day . once or more . . . Notice the air, the light, the colors, your own heart beat.
Just for a moment . . . Breathe & Be ♥
