Sistahs - Welcome to Fall, 2011 - Shedding Light. Please forgive me for being so late. I wanted to start a few days ago but I could not get on my computer. I am hoping that this will post so am making it brief.
Sistah Sharon, one of my friends here in Franklin, La., sent me an email and I'd like to share it with you. It says so much:
Autumn is a symbol of death and rebirth. As soon as we release what needs to be released, rebirth is certain. We are making room for what truly resonates with our heart by letting go. Now is the time to thank whatever we have been holding on to for teaching us what we needed to learn and let Nature, God's Nature take it's course. Let go and Let God. Release what ever has come to the end of it's cycle, release whatever is not serving you at this moment. Allow it to fall away like the autumn leaves. Whatever is false and obsuring your life...allow it to simply... drift away. You are more than capable of creating this for your Self. Create a-new.
Peace be with you always,
This is a new season so shed what you do not need and leave room for new things to come into your life. Sometimes we get so clogged and weighed down - there is no room for anything new.
I am a great believe in soaking away problems as you all know - so even if you always shower, try to soak once a week in epsom salts or apple cider vinegar and let negativity go down the drain (more on soaks later).
This season finds me down in bayouland. I hear that a cold front is right around the corner. To be honest, it is still summer here and I love it.
I was thinking about what kind of posts would be fun to write. The things about fall or autumn that came to me were the moon, fires and trees. I'd like to give the sistahs this season the option to write about any one of these subjects. You may write every day, once a week, or whenever you feel like it. It can be a poem, a story, a haiku. Title it Shedding Light - and then your title. You can post pictures to go along with your post.
I want to post this before I lose power altogether sistahs but hope that those of you who are chomping at the bit can at least get started. We'll go into breathing, stretching and eating a bit later. Also, walking - VERY IMPORTANT TO MOVE! Naturally, I want to hear about everyone's summer but you can tell me about it in a comment should you choose.
Thanks Sistahs and if you're new, please introduce yourself here and tell us a bit about yourself. Salud
