I was sitting in contemplation with nature earlier this morning which is my daily ritual where I do some reflexology on my hands and feet and give thanks for the day.
Anyway in my odd little way I realised that nature has it right!
Nature knows that when Autumn strikes and the mornings and the evenings get cooler, that it is time to shed the old and let go, so it lets go of all its old baggage and bad habits (leaves).
After the letting go period it lies dormant throughout the winter, not worrying, not stressing, not trying to be anything that it is not.
It lies dormant regenerating and rejuvenating so that new life and in our case ideas can get brought to the surface to birth and explode into rigorous, glorious growth during the summer months.
Our biggest problem is that we fight this cycle and try to keep growing with no rest or rejuvenation in between. And then we beat ourselves up because the outcome is not what we visualised and manifested during the previous cycle.
Science and biology tell us that our circadian rhythm adjusts to less light in the day through winter, which theoretically translates into a mini hibernation that is needed for cellular regeneration. It is therefore natural for us to feel less active, less creative and yes even hungrier during the cooler months.
The key is to listen to your body and allow it (not the mind) to guide you to what is needed most be that an early night or perhaps even a warm carby dinner.....in moderation of course!
This simple natural rhythm of life is something that assists us to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, helping to calm and de-stress the mind and body. In turn bringing about new life, fresh ideas and renewed creativity during the next cycle.
As always with love and blessings and my deepest gratitude for reading my newsletter
