Play • 9 min

Autumn is a time of establishing a rhythmic order and turning inward.

The softer calm and re-centering energy grounds us from a restless mind and body.

As Women, we innately “nest” in the fall as we prepare our hearts and home with comfort foods brimming with sensational scents of garlic, fennel and sustaining broths.

Today’s video is all about exploring the biorhythms of our life force and Chi that is represented by the season of Autumn in respect to Ancient Chinese Principle

...So YOU can energetically and physiologically Shift your Inner + Outer Being

Fall represents the Lungs and Large Intestine

Fall corresponds to the lungs, skin, and large intestine. The lungs and large intestine are in charge of digestion and elimination.

Anything that does not move in the system stagnates and eventually becomes toxic

That’s why Fall is a great time to cleanse the physical and emotional toxins that accumulate in the system on a more transient, day-to-day basis.

Fall is also Brimming Full of Inspiration

The element that is represented in the Fall is METAL and it houses our source of new ideas and is where new emotions take shape, since it’s our inhalation-connection (lung) to the universe.

When it comes to EMOTIONS…

“The Large Intestine ‘lets go’ of what is no longer necessary.

A healthy balance between the Lung and Large Intestine is demonstrated by a person that can honor commitments, but then let go of a relationship when it is over.”

It’s a time to let go of old ideas, beliefs, and attachments, leaving room for new space to grow and evolve.

Next, let’s brief over the Autumn + Vital Skin Health

Skin is our largest organ, but it is the LAST to receive essential building blocks from your daily food choices.

The inability to eliminate through regular bowel movements or continue to move the lymphatic system is critical, especially because we have more lymph than blood.

If the Lungs are strong, the skin will be lustrous and firm.
