TODAY I LEARNED: Ancient Egyptian pharaohs had a shepherd of the Royal Anus.

It’s a good idea to take time to reconnect with nature and your own natural rhythm. After I’ve done so, I feel so much better and even closer to my spirit guides. Even the spirits of nature feel closer after a nice outside meditation. I cherish and crave those late night hours, the chill of the air, the smell of leaves and small droplets of water along the greenery.

I have a plan. Tonight I will connect to nature. Even if it just means sitting on the ground and running my hands through the grass while I stare up at the night sky. It may be cloudy, but that’s okay. I’ve never disliked the clouds. Rainy days are often my favorite. Sunny afternoons are great, but they’re not my favorite. I love dreary days and stormy nights.

But it hasn’t always been this way. For a very long time, I felt lost and disconnected. Fortunately, buried beneath all the chaos and racing thoughts, the potential to connect was there. The cords of light connecting me to my spirit guides and natural flow were just waiting for my grasp, lingering softly, waiting for me to notice. These moments were not easy for me. For the longest time I didn’t feel good enough or like I was doing any of it the right way.

But letting go, like a leaf disconnecting from a tree during this time of year, helped me a lot. I realized I needed to let certain threads fray, float away like soft fiber.

After all, letting go of old habits, ideas, and worries is what this time of year is all about. We put to rest all that needs to be cleansed by the earth. Autumn brings about great change…and that can be scary.

Just the same, this is a scary part of the year for many reasons, but not in a bad way. I feel like October is a wonderful time to embrace our fears, bring certain terrifying things to light and make something with it. Inventive fear, as some people call it.

I’ve also been considering pursuing Inktober, drawing something every day for October! I’m going to try and commit to it! Wish me luck!
