Lesson from Autumn


A lesson from autumn.  Let go of what does not have life anymore for you.  Drop it and move on with your life.

Many of us tend to accumulate stuff!  Stuff?  How about those old 1973 ponytail rubber bands you thought you'd use, stuffed away in a back of a drawer?  Or how about that used oil pan you picked up at a rummage sale in the year 1991 and still haven't used?

Stuff can reflect all the inner hurts we've accumulated throughout our lives.  We keep  them safely packed away in our energy fields.

Stuff can also reflect relationships that just are not quite working out for you.  But you hold on to it due to feeling scared of change.


I know I've got an office that has accumulated many unfinished projects that I need to tend to.  Question is, what project is dead to me? What project am I NOT interested in?  What do I let go of?

When we let go of stuff, we tend to make room for what really means a lot to us.  What holds life in us.

But if we don't let go of dead stuff, we run the risk of not allowing new change to come into our lives.

Change that can bring us happiness, joy, and maybe that Ah-ha moment we've been looking for.

Holding on to dead stuff in our lives means stagnation for us.  It means we are accumulating and holding on to dead stuff-dead bodies.  How toxic is that?

Instead of waiting for Spring cleaning, how about looking at your life every month and decide what is alive and what is dead.  Then when you find the dead stuff in your life, just let it go. 

Feeling guilty at letting go of stuff? 

 For physical objects, try giving your stuff that you don't want to the Salvation Army or other helping hand places.  Here your dead stuff can be given new life with a new person.

Have old toys from childhood?  Keep them if you want your children or grandchildren to use them.  But if you're just letting them sit there in storage not allowing them to be used, maybe it's time you visit your inner-child healing and your beliefs.  Your loving memories will always be with you.  Now let go of the childhood toys and allow other children to get all the enjoyment out of them as you did.

Feeling negative all the time in a relationship?  You've grown, but your friend hasn't?  Maybe that friend has been bringing you down or has been trying to?  Maybe it's time you let go of the friendship.  It’s always a hard decision to make.  But if you have more lows than highs with this friendship, it's time to move on.  Make room for new friends in your life.

This autumn, try going outside and watch as the dead leaves drop from a tree branch.  Watch how gentle the leaf falls to the ground.  Here the leaf will be repurposed.  The leaf will be used for fertilizing the soil.  It will be food for Earthworms. 

The tree knew exactly when it was time to drop the dead leaf.  The tree knew there will be other chances to create (leaves) and new memories.  Follow nature and drop those dead leaves.  Let go of the dead, toxic stuff.  Let go and move one.

I have used all procedures I have written about and have found them to be helpful as tools to help myself become a better person.   I am sharing them with you because used as a tool, they are helpful in Shadow working on ourselves.  (Shadow working is healing our inner shadows that are unconscious or subconscious.  Inner shadows are our belief systems, our thoughts, our behaviors, our life experiences.)

I created this blog for my Reiki clients originally.  Combining these tools with Reiki creates a happy, healthy person.  These tools, when used alone are also beneficial!
