Meditating on Fall: A Sensorial Prelude to Autumn

Greetings, kindred spirits. It's Cassie, reaching out from the heart of a blazing Texas summer. While the sun generously bestows its warmth, my soul is gently tugging towards the embrace of autumn. While clearing space makes room for new beginnings and fresh perspectives, it's equally essential to set a meditative ambiance, allowing us to transition our thoughts, practice mindfulness, and indulge in a luxurious evening of self-care. So, If you, like me, are yearning for the poetic transition of seasons, let's embark on a mindful journey, crafting a sensorial prelude to fall.

1. Autumnal Aromascape

The essence of fall is not just in its visuals but profoundly in its scents. As we await the season's full bloom, we can craft our own aromatic haven reminiscent of autumn's embrace. The rich tapestry of vanilla, sandalwood, cinnamon, pumpkin, and cardamom beckons.

Craft your own aromascape: Combine halved apples, cinnamon, cloves, anise star, cardamom, and a few drops of Supernatural’s “Reflecting” essential oil. The citrusy undertones of the oil dance with the spices, creating an olfactory symphony. Allow this blend to simmer gently on your stove, ensuring you replenish the water as needed. This aromatic ritual is not just about the scent; it's about the act of creation, the anticipation, and the mindful immersion in the moment.

2. Spirulina Elixir: An Ode to Autumn

In the embrace of fall, even our palate seeks warmth and depth. Let's craft a beverage that's not just a drink but an experience, a tribute to the season. The Blue Pumpkin Latte, infused with the goodness of Spirulina, is a harmonious blend of health and taste.

Spirulina, a gem from nature, is teeming with nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties. This latte, sweetened with organic maple syrup and spiced with autumnal flavors, is a mindful indulgence.

  • 1/2 TSP Blue Spirulina
  • Pinch of ground cardamom
  • Pinch of pumpkin
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of Ginger
  • Dash of Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk (warmed and frothed)
  • Maple Syrup To Taste
  • Begin with Blue Spirulina and spices in a mug, adding a dash of vanilla.
  • Introduce a portion of the warmed almond milk, whisking gently.
  • Sweeten with maple syrup, and complete with the remaining frothed almond milk, ensuring a harmonious blend.

Sip, savor, and let each flavor note resonate with your soul.

3. Enchanted Evening

As the sun dips below the horizon, it's time to immerse yourself in the autumnal ambiance you've crafted. I recently moved to a new house, and my fall decorations were easily accessible in the garage. I set up my favorite decorations, turned on a YouTube video of a rainy day coffee shop ambiance, laid out a soft, comfy blanket, and snuggled with my puppy to the sound of falling rain and soft jazz music.

This is what I call Autumn Immersion Therapy. All five of my senses are experiencing autumn at the same time. In this moment, it is fall, and I'm enveloped in my happy place.

As the last light fades, your autumn elixir runs dry, the fall movie ends, and the symphony of scents fades into the background, reality sneaks back in. This is the moment to focus on gratitude. Every changing season is bittersweet, and as you step outside into the warm summer night, you'll find a newfound appreciation for the "now."
