Depending on where you live and what type of climate you’ve had, you may be feeling summer is ending too quickly.
It can certainly go fast when you are doing a lot of things, including travel. It is a time of transition with kids going back to school and the weather changing.
In the 4,000-year-old art of Feng Shui, the seasons each represent an element and color.
They also represent life changes. Summer is the Fire element, and the color is fiery Red. It is a time of prosperity and abundance from all the things you planted in the spring. Fall is the harvest. Reaping what you’ve sown and enjoying the fruits of your labors during the past six months can be an especially exciting time. It marks the beginning of the holiday season with festivities, celebrations, and gatherings. It is the Earth element, and its colors are gold, dark reds, oranges, terracotta, creams, tans, and orangey reds.
We want our abundance and prosperity to continue all year, so shifting along with the natural seasons is important. Here are some easy ways to move from summer to fall.
Put away summer things you will use for next year.
Get rid of anything broken. Broken items mean broken areas of your life.
Clean up the yard, patio, and garage while doing this.
Clutter causes stagnation and blocks opportunities for the future.
“I am meeting all my financial and health goals in this last quarter of the year” is an example.
Place it where you can see it daily.
3) Refresh your space.
Add new fall colors to your living room.
Change out pillows on couches,
rugs, artwork, or decorations.
The architectural front door is considered the “mouth of chi” whether you use it or not.
You can go in through your garage to get into your home, which is fine, but do not neglect the front porch. You may have guests, delivery people, etc., who use that area from time to time, even if you do not.
If you do nothing else inside the home for a while, spruce up the front porch and entryway. Add autumn colors, plants, and decorations for the season.
This will not only help to bring good chi into your home, but it will also welcome in the new month. Add sound to your front door with windchimes as they resemble coins clanking, bringing money to you. Add live plants or flowers in autumn colors for new beginnings, good luck, and good health. Add a water feature to bring in wealth.
Simply shifting the energy from one season to the next with its colors, themes, and a strong intention can keep you flowing into the year with ease and grace.
