Autumn Affirmation Week 3
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
Within the acceptance of an open heart,
I embrace my unlovable and my unembraceable.
I see the bits I am not happy with.
I know how I judge myself.
I feel the inner resistance to include these bits as me.
I realize the embrace is possible because acceptance doesn’t mean I will be exactly this tomorrow.
Instead, I realize the acceptance is what gets me past the stagnation of denial into ME, living within my Best Self, difficult bits, awesome bits, and learning bits.
In embracing the unembraceable, I steer my path into the fullness and richness of my Best Self.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
When I was a child, I felt unloved because …
Now, my heart hurts when …
As I have matured, I have learned this about myself …
That which feels unembraceable is within me because …
I believe this is what is unlovable about me …
For me, I know I am loved when …
In this moment, I open my heart to embrace …
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
Gilbert K Chesterton
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
