Autum, Metal and Letting Go

Autumn is the time of the Metal Element, with the Lungs and Large Intestines the dominant organ system. Just as the trees drop their leaves, which they no longer need, it is a time for us to let go as well.

What no longer serves you? Is it the junk in the front closet or clutter in your home? Unhealthy habits? Is there someone you need to forgive? Are there behavior or thought patterns which are unproductive or harmful?

Just as nature readies for the coming winter, so should we. Metal urges us to condense and contract. Like squirrels collecting acorns, we need to accumulate and store energy.

Both the lungs and the large instestines take in and release. The lungs urge us to breathe in freshness and exhale and let go of what we do not need. Take some time each day for several relaxing, cleansing breaths.
