The autumn leaves show us how beautiful it is to let things go

We are surrounded by the natural rhythms of the Earth: the light of day follows the dark of night, the waxing and waning of the moon and tides, and the changing of the seasons. As the long, warm days of summer give way to autumn, there is much we can learn from this time of year.

After the new growth of spring, followed by the blossoming of summer, the trees are now ready to release their leaves but not before we’re treated to the glorious colours of autumn. The trees let go of what they no longer need in a blaze of glory before conserving their energy for the cold, dark days of winter. This is a beautiful analogy for humans: as the trees drop their leaves we are also prompted to let things go.

In today’s modern world, many of us have lost our connection with the natural rhythm of the seasons. We push to be productive, strive to achieve and force ourselves to ‘bloom’ all year round, living in a state of perpetual summer. Yet we are not separate from the Earth, and living in harmony with the cyclic nature of life means using this season to look inward, be honest about what we no longer want or need, and let it go.

Where in your life do you feel stagnant or stuck?
Who do you need to forgive so you can move on?
If you weren’t afraid, what would you let go of?
What part of your life needs to fall away so you can set yourself free?

It takes courage to look closely at our lives to answer these questions and this is where the healing power of Reiki can help. A Reiki treatment is a deeply relaxing experience that offers time out of your busy life to reconnect with your true self and acknowledge what no longer serves you. The holistic energy-healing therapy brings the mind, body, emotions and spirit into balance, enabling you to let go with love and grace.

A Reiki treatment can help you to:

  • Create mental clarity to help you clearly see what is no longer working and what needs to change.
  • Promote mental peace so you can make decisions with confidence, and without endless over-thinking.
  • Restore emotional balance when the letting go is stressful or painful.
  • Cleanse and balance the energy within and around the body, particularly the Solar Plexus Chakra, so you can draw on your inner strength as needed.
  • Release the negative energy of difficult events and emotional trauma which may prevent you from moving on.

Whether the falling autumn leaves prompt you to de-clutter your home, forgive someone (or yourself), or let go of a relationship that has passed its expiry date, Reiki can support you to trust the natural flow of life, knowing that by letting go of what you no longer need, you are making space for a positive new beginning.
