Are you enjoying the Fall weather as much as I am? It’s my favorite time of year and I start by decorating my home in preparation for the season. I start in my library, placing pumpkins, gourds and leaves on the mantle and like the falling leaves outside, they spread around my home, covering tables and anywhere in the home that I think needs a touch of Fall. I even have a blackboard in the breakfast room that I change seasonally with quotes and happy affirmations to share with family and friends.
To me, the seasons are one of the greatest gifts we have here on earth, as they remind us that time is moving along and that the only constant in life is change. Everything about the Fall season makes me excited to be alive, the crisp cool air, the cascade of colors on the trees, the hint of warm apples, pumpkins, cinnamon and cider in the air and the mellowing of the Sun as it still shines but now with a warm golden glow, rather than the bright white of summer.
Fall means that the holidays are on their way, starting with my favorite, Halloween. I think we should decorate as extensively for Fall and the entire Autumnal season as we do for the Winter/Christmas season. This can begin well before Halloween with natural decor in warm colors. When Halloween draws near, add to the decor with ghosts, bats and other creatures of the night and then after Halloween, return back to the natural decor with leaves, pumpkins, corn and embellishments for Thanksgiving.
Beyond the traditional pumpkins, apples are also wonderful to display during this time. Have you read my article about Halloween and Magic Apples? If not, it’s here on my Haunted History Examiner section, check it out.It’s also a wonderful time of year to enjoy the outdoors after such a long hot summer and take a walk and spend some time in nature. If you are looking for natural products to add to your collection as a light worker, it’s a great time to find feathers dropped by birds and good sturdy branches that have fallen from trees from the recent high winds, that would make for great wands and staffs.
The possibilities are endless, use your imagination and intuition to determine what feels like Fall for you and then go wild! I’d love to hear from you about your favorite fall decorations and what you love about the season.
I share other tips on how to Spiritually Celebrate the Fall Equinox in my article here on the Huffington Post.
May the Spirit of Fall bless your home and all who reside within,
All the best,
