There are some wonderful physical/energetic and nutritional aids that you can bring in at this time of year to help the transition from the yang-fuelled summer months into the cooler autumn months, and it feels important to understand what happens energetically as we move through the seasons.
In these September months, it is a time to start to gather our energy, so we have plenty to carry us through the darker, deeper months of winter. Just as during the harvest festivals, where we celebrate the abundance of harvest and store/freeze/can/preserve what we need until the bounty returns next year; our energy system mirrors this natural occurrence.
Hopefully, wherever you are, you have had the opportunity to stock up on the amazing abundance of sun energy that was plentiful in Europe this summer. Vitamin D is carried into our whole-body system, firstly through our aura, and then our skin, and this is also how we bring in the vital yang energy of the sun. From October to March, the sun is not strong enough or high enough in the sky to allow the vitamin D conversion in the skin to take place, and so for some people it will become important to supplement with Vitamin D as we progress further into the colder months. But for now, as long as you were able to spend time outdoors over the summer and expose your bare skin to the sun, your natural stocks of Vitamin D should be plentiful.
When I worked in clinical practice, I used to start testing clients to see if they needed vitamin D supplements in January, but most did not need it until February or March when their stores had become depleted and weather conditions weren't yet right to top up their levels naturally.
Having a good stock of solar energy and Vitamin D is not only a big determinant as to how you will respond to bacteria and viruses over these next few weeks and months, but also how your mood will manage throughout the winter before the return of the sun in the spring.
So, priority number 1 is to keep the aura active and vibrant to enable us to continue absorbing the vital solar energy that is still available to many of us. You can do this with the Celtic Weave exercise or by tracing lots of figure 8’s throughout your biofield. Your aura cannot be strong without your whole-body system being grounded, so ensure you are grounding well. You can also refer to my blogs on grounding.
And, I know it is obvious, but I’ll say it anyway…. get outdoors! The more time you spend outdoors at the moment the vaster the benefits to your aura, your grounding and to your whole health (physical, emotional, spiritual, cognitional and energetic).
