 What Is the Harvest Season and How to Use Its Energies

Perhaps you can also feel that whenever the fall comes, there is something different in the air, almost magical and transcendental. This is probably because the fall is also known as the Harvest season and it’s a very significant period spiritually, reserved for fasting and cleansing the body and mind of toxins and negative patterns, while enjoying the nature’s bounty we gather, reaping what we planted in the spring. This is the time when good things come back to us, so we can just sit back and relax, delighting in the good karma that we deserved by doing good deeds in the preceding months.

They say that the fall is the season of the Metal element, which represents the most refined part of ourselves. We start dealing with core issues, thinking about existential reality. “Who am I?” and “What is my purpose here in this life?” are the common questions we are asking during this period. We feel emotions of grief and sadness, preparing ourselves for the reflective time that is yet to come.

If you want to stay healthy and feel energetic in the fall, there are several things you should do. From organizing your life to smelling the scents of nature, these are all the ways to get the most out of the Harvest season!

Organize your life well

Instead of fretting about the work that has to be done and feeling overwhelmed all the time, give yourself small and simple tasks and do one by one with pleasure. Organize your activities, make lists and check the items when you finish them, and do all this enjoying every step of the process. Be committed and focus on great things you’ve already accomplished to get motivated and inspired.   

Fast and cleanse your body

You can eliminate toxins and negative patterns by fasting and cleansing your body. You can try to consume only water and raw fruits and veggies, but if this is too hard, another alternative is light meals. Avoid refined carbohydrates such as sugars and white flour products, because they lead to constipation. You don’t need to fast for long, but do drink lots of water. You can even buy a water bottle on sale to always carry it with you and stay hydrated.  

Write everything down

A helpful thing is to write everything down – your emotions, plans, wishes, and so on. Everything that’s bothering you, all the things you’re grateful for, all your achievements and next goals – everything can be noted. This way, you won’t forget about what’s important, and you will also have recordings of all the good things for later in life.

Let go of everything

Learning to let go can be tough, but practice doing it and you’ll see how life’s becoming so much easier. If you really want something, just let go of expectations and stop paying too much focus on your wishes. Do other things instead and dedicate yourself to everything that is a part of your life at the moment. Soon your wishes will start to come true.

Relax and meditate

Fall routines can hit us like a fast-moving train. For example, in some countries, this is a season when the school starts and there are many things to be done, so finding some time for yourself to relax and meditate can be quite crucial to keep calm and healthy. Don’t subdue to stress and anxiety and find things to do that are enjoyable for you and bring you peace.

Breathe and enjoy all the scents

The fall is a resplendent season of enchanting colors and breathtaking nature, as well as scents that are quite easy on the nose. You can enjoy doing breathing exercises that strengthen your lungs, increase your energy, still your mind and lift your spirits! Focus on exhalation because this way, the inhalation phase of breathing occurs naturally and spontaneously.

The Harvest season is for resting, enjoying a variety of produce, dealing with existential questions and preparing for the reflective winter. If you want to use its energies completely, do all the things mentioned above and try to stay healthy and peaceful. It’s a truly remarkable time of the year and you should get the most out of it!
