Happy Fall! I realize I'm a few weeks late on this! but it actually finally feels like fall today in NYC on this chilly rainy day.🍁 Fall is my favorite season and F.Scott Fitzgerald's quote "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp In the fall." Is still one of my absolute favorite quotes as it captures so perfectly that feeling of letting go of the old and welcoming the new🍂🍁 . . In Chinese Medicine fall is the season of the metal element, and the lung and large intestine organ systems. . . Lungs: The lung is the yin organ within the metal element, responsible for taking in the new-e.g. breathing in the crisp, fall air, filling ourselves with oxygen and supporting our body functions to keep us going. Mentally and spiritually, the lungs correspond to inspiration and being open creatively and emotionally: just like their intake of each new breath, the lungs enable us to receive new and pure ideas. . . Large Intestine: As the yang organ in the fall, the large intestine complements the lungs by being responsible for letting things out of the body. It is the last stage of digestion, cleansing your body of waste and holding onto only vital matter. On a spiritual level, the large intestine helps detoxify harmful behaviors, thoughts or any other unwanted energies. . To learn more about the energy of the season and how to know if your metal is in or out of balance this fall, and some simple ways to get in tune with the season check out my blog post on fall: Breathing in, Letting Go: Fall and the metal element in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
