AUTUMN: Death and Renewal
Last night, November 6th, the people of this nation have decided to bring about change and they did. Something always needs to dissolve before anything new can come forth. Autumn always reminds me of the necessity of death for the sake of renewal. Have you noticed that just before the leaves die and drop to the ground, the trees are covered by striking colors of gold and red shimmering in the light? I call this the moment of their enlightenment. It is as if the leaves know that they are dying and are bursting with the last drop of life, celebrating their life and their death, both at the same time. I imagine that they feel they will join earth and live in another form. It seems like nature knows that death is necessary to renewal. What we see as death is just a transformation from one state of existence to another. Maybe this is why I feel autumn is a celebration of letting go, with all the glorious colors an incredible beauty. We can all learn from nature to trust the little or big “deaths” in our lives, the shedding of the old. If we can let go, we can renew and heal.
I love coaching and assisting people in moving through the past and beyond it. We look at, and identify what is true and lasting within us, what is unnecessary, limiting, and false. By letting go of who we are not we slowly come to be who we truly are. Being who we truly are is our source of inner strength and success.
