This is an aside to my usual posts, yet when the wonderful Ute from Ute smile tagged me with the Autunno in… Tag created by Il mondo di shioren I just had to answer the call!

In my posts I am often talking about connection, interaction as well as the turning of the Wheel of the Year and on top of everything I am an Autumn child, myself.

So, here we go…

Three Things I Love About Autumn

Nature’s Gifts

Autumn is the time of year when Mother Nature is presenting all her gifts to us.  The crop in the fields is ready for harvest, all the fruits on the trees and shrubs are ripe and juicy and additionally our Mother Earth is presenting us with the most beautiful colours.

Calm & Introspection

In Autumn Mother Earth is pulling her energy deep inside to her core.  The juices of the trees are being pulled into the ground which makes the leaves fall.  Many animals move into their winter quarters under the earth.  Everything is being pulled inside to gain new strength for the next year.  We humans are also invited to go inside and get to the bottom, the ground of things, and to take new strength by grounding ourselves deeply into the love of Mother Earth.

The Mystery

There lies a mystery inside the times of transition and Autumn is definitely one of those.  Sometimes it feels like being in two places at once.  On some days the wind seems to carry a memory of the last Summer breeze and on other days we clearly notice the fragrance of the first frost carried by a gale that reminds us of Winter.  In-between this time is enfolding its very own beauty with the colourful leaves and fruits, the bizarre shapes of the mushrooms, the earthy scent and moist haze which often condenses into a thick mist during the hours of dusk and dawn.  Meanwhile the veils are becoming thinner and we get a chance to see the unseen, know the unknown and step beyond the physical while still residing inside the body.

Connection & Interaction

This post has come to the point of introducing the bloggers I choose to tag, next.

Here are my choices:

Anna – who always looks out for the uplifting message life brings to us with all experiences.

Ashley – who loves walks as much as I do and always offers an insightful, different view.

Cathie – who has a beautiful blog about mindfulness.

Kim – whose view on things I always find inspiring.

Mike – who not only creates enchanting music but also lives in an enchanting part of the world and is engaged in protecting it.

And, last but not least, you dear reader – who lightens up my path of beingness whenever we encounter each other.

What are your three favourite things about Autumn?

Are you ready to shine a bright light of awareness on the path of beingness, today?

Much love,
Steffi

P.S.: Apart from the “Autunno in… TAG!” image, all pictures – moving and still – were taken by me with a DSLR camera in or near the Feldmark in Schenefeld right at the North-West border of Hamburg, Germany.
