Autumn Affirmation Week 11
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
Within the acceptance of an open heart,
I embrace the resiliency of my body.
A cold burst of wind may tumble the leaves, but I can withstand the push.
Not because I am stiff like a metal pole.
No, rather, I am flexible like bamboo.
I am determined to travel like a raindrop on a window in the Autumn rain.
A flow strengthened to withstand gusts.
A flow drawing strength from center, from my authentic core.

I weather turmoil because …
I find expansive possibility when …
I can flow with the unexpected when …
I am flexible when I feel resistance because …
In this moment, I open my heart to embrace …
The human capacity for burden is like bamboo – far more flexible than you’d ever believe at first glance.
I can be changed by what happens to me.
But I refuse to be reduced by it.
The Transformative Energy of Autumn
As the sun shifts in the sky and roots settle into the Earth, the energy of Autumn moves forward from the energy of Summer.
The unleashing of Summer has laid the groundwork for the emergence of Autumn’s harvest.
Sun and moon are moving toward a balance which supports the transformative energy of Autumn: Embrace.
To Embrace: In resonance with all levels body, mind, heart, and soul, heart opens to accept the richness of life’s experience.
Within the seasonal energy of Autumn, the motion of an open heart is in the embrace of the fullness of life.
To embrace is to be awake to the bounty contained within both challenge and possibility.
To embrace is to be open and accepting of self, releasing self-judgment and self-blame.
For the harvest to be bountiful, the body and the soul find alignment through the fullness of the cycles of the season.
As Autumn progresses, in balance, you are ready to begin when Winter’s dream comes once again.
Embrace the fullness, alpha and omega.
An eternal life cycle as Soul transcends.
Embrace the new wholeness of body, mind, heart, and soul.
The energy within you is a willingness to embrace the best of who you are and can become.An excerpt from Autumn: Embrace the Richness of Your Best Self
