It’s fall and leaves fall off the trees this time of year. The leaves are reabsorbed into by the earth bringing nutrients to the tree. One of the universal laws, the Law of Correspondence, says that patterns repeat throughout the universe. It’s no surprise then that we can take the example of the leaves falling from the tree in the autumn to how your emotions leave your body so that they can be transmuted into love to nourish your soul. You see, feelings are turned into emotions by your body. If you don’t allow yourself to feel your feelings your body traps these emotions causing damage to your body in the way of disease, depression, anxiety, fear, etc. If a tree didn’t lose the dead leaves in the fall, there would be no place for new leaves to form and the tree would be deprived of the additional nourishment. The dead leaves clog up the system.
Make it a point to check in with yourself everyday. Think about what the day brought you, feel into you body and notice any places that hold discomfort, feelings, emotions that you might be holding onto. A tense drive home in traffic, a crabby child, an unbalanced budget, or maybe a deadline at work. In what way did these things trigger you to feel negatively about yourself. Let go of these things before they clog up your system.
