As the air breathes a little cooler and the leaves paint a splash of bright color around the landscape, we know Fall is here. This time of year holds a special kind of magic and energy that invites us to snuggle up in cozy blankets, enjoy warm drinks, and tune in to the change ahead.
Welcome to the Unfolding Space blog, where we explore Feng Shui and SpaceHealing. This post is about celebrating autumn in all its golden glory. You’ll discover more about the fascinating world of autumn and how we can make this season shine in our rooms through the art of spatial flow and energetic harmony.
The meaning of autumn in Feng Shui.
Autumn is a time of change and transformation. In Feng Shui, autumn is associated with the metal element—representing clarity, letting go and focus.
Interior design for autumn.
Fall brings abundant colors and textures that we can reflect in our spaces. The use of warm and earthy tones fills the room with coziness and a nourishing depth. It’s the start of your cocoon for the coming colder months. Decorating with autumn accessories and natural elements such as pumpkins, leaves, and dried flowers creates a seasonal welcoming vibe.
Autumn cleansing and space energy.
Autumn is also a time of letting go and preparing for winter. For this reason, it’s essential to address space energy clearance at this time. By exploring different SpaceHealing techniques, such as herbal smudging and setting up crystals, you can remove negative energies and open your space to fresh and positive energy. As we spend more time indoors during autumn and winter, it’s important to ensure that your home’s vibration is light and energized to keep you uplifted during this internal time. Candles with autumnal scents, such as cinnamon or vanilla, have a wonderfully calming effect. Plus, they smell divine and carry the hints of Christmas time ❤️.
The transition into autumn.
The transition into Fall can sometimes be difficult as we say goodbye to the warm, sunny season and prepare for cooler days. Therefore, the most important thing to consider is the mental and emotional aspects of autumn and how Feng Shui can help us manage the transition in a positive and healthy way.
Mindfulness practices and rituals help to connect us with the energy of autumn and prepare us for the coming season. As your environment begins to turn inwards, naturally, so do we. Staying in flow means we are at one with our surroundings—so now is a great time to practice some meditation, journaling, or whatever internal self-care resonates with you. Maybe it’s just sitting quietly with a book, drawing, or listening to soothing music.
Life is busy, so for some, these practices are not always practical. If you are time-poor, try giving yourself 5 minutes when you wake or before you sleep each day—to tune into yourself. Even if it’s just to breathe. Perhaps, go for a walk instead of the gym, as this can also be a form of meditation. 🙏🏻
