What Fall Gives Us!
All our “doing” was in summer and now we crave to slumber!
At nearly 7000 ft. here in the Colorado Mountains, the days are growing shorter and sweaters are required. I walk the bike path and see many very furry, golden caterpillars undulating away from me to seek shelter–will the snow be deep? There are signs of black bear in the yard reminding me that they’re gorging themselves on up to 20,000 calories a day before going into hibernation. For the second morning in September, there is snow upon the ski mountain.
A time of introspection is upon us. Nature provides this season for self-reflection, meditation and a time (or at least a yearning) for our minds to slow a bit. All our “doing” was for summer and now we seek to rest.
Fall is also the time when we seem to reminisce about our loved ones who have passed on to the other side. It’s our memories of them that matter and the fall seems to allow us to reminisce more.
Some tools you can use to keep the line of communication open between you and your “loved-ones-in-spirit” are:
- . Verbally invite your loved ones into your dreams before you go to sleep.
- . Speak out loud to your loved ones as they can hear you.
- . Ask your loved ones for signs, such as movement of wind chimes or dimming of lights or some aberration of an electronic device as your loved ones are on a similar frequency and can affect these frequencies.
Finally, keep your loved ones in your heart and by your side as we enter this very special, reflective season.
