What does autumn mean to you?



October 2023

I absolutely LOVE autumn🍁... wrapping up, going for long walks, kicking the leaves up, the wonderful colours as the leaves die back, and that lovely autumnal smell!

Autumn is often seen in the therapy world as a metaphor for letting go, and it carries several symbolic meanings that can be applied to our lives:

🍂 Change and Transition: Autumn is a season of change, as the vibrant green leaves of summer turn into various shades of red, orange, and yellow before falling to the ground. This transition reminds us that change is a natural part of life, and just as the trees let go of their leaves, we too must let go of things that no longer serve us.

🍂 Release and Renewal: As leaves fall from the trees, they make way for new growth in the spring. Similarly, letting go of old habits, negative emotions, or past regrets can create space for personal growth and renewal. It's a reminder that by releasing the old, we can make room for the new.

🍂 Simplicity: Autumn's beauty often lies in its simplicity. The bare trees and fallen leaves can inspire us to simplify our own lives, shedding unnecessary burdens and focusing on what truly matters.

🍂  Impermanence: Autumn highlights the impermanence of all things. The colourful foliage is temporary, and so are many aspects of our lives. Embracing this impermanence can help us appreciate the present moment and not cling too tightly to things that are destined to change.

🍂 Harvest and Gratitude: Autumn is a time of harvest when we gather the fruits of our labour.

It reminds us to be grateful for the abundance in our lives and to appreciate the results of our efforts. Personally, I don't know what I am going to do with my 30 butternut squashes and 7 pumpkins at my allotment!

But autumn serves as a powerful reminder that letting go is a natural and necessary part of life. It encourages us to embrace change, release what no longer serves us, and find beauty in the process of transition and renewal.

If you want help to release what no longer serves you, why not come and see me?
