Ahhh, the cooler weather has arrived and soon the leaves will turn into nature’s symphony of beautiful colors.
Just as summer is a time for expansion and growth, autumn is a time for clearing in order to make way for rebirth. It is a time to go within…to nurture ourselves and renew our desire to live life to our fullest potential…to create our dreams.
As nature clears herself in this season, so are we invited to clear the stories and beliefs that create unwanted patterns in our lives.
When we experience painful events or trauma, an “imprint” is formed in our energy field which, if not cleared, adversely affects our emotional, mental and physical well-being. We experience self-defeating thoughts and feelings, which continue to re-create painful experiences and limitations in our lives. The effects of these imprints move into the subconscious mind, making them unavailable for us to clear through willpower or traditional therapy. We develop our mental maps of life, our perceptions of ourselves and our world, from these limiting beliefs in our subconscious mind. These mental maps become our stories of “I am not good enough”, “I am not deserving of success”, “That illness runs in my family”, “Only certain people are destined for success”, “If I love, I will be betrayed”, and so on. In short, these beliefs run our lives. Our karmic history also contains painful events, which can create “soul contracts” that follow our soul through time, causing unwanted patterns.
