The Autumn time gives us the opportunity to reconnect to our inner knowing, our intuition or our gut wisdom/instinct as the Large Intestine meridian/organ is associated with the Metal element.
The gut is often referred to as the second brain as it is packed with neurons which it uses to send information from the gut to the brain via the enteric nervous system. So Autumn is the time to not just think but to 'feel' our way through a situation or issue.
So here is a Metal/Autumnal affirmation:
'I connect to my inner wisdom'
Perhaps when you are saying it you could place your hand over your gut and tune in.
Have a lovely day, love Carol xx
