Fall: Transition Season—Can it be Easy? What I Learned From a Horse
Updated: Jan 31
Transitions in life are often hard. And as I’m writing this I have sore muscles to remind me how tough they can be sometimes!
We go through a transition any time something in life changes. It could be a new job, a new home or simply a change in routine as the seasons change. Change can be hard. Why? Usually because we want to get it right—start off on the right foot so to speak. My horse taught me about that this week (hence those sore muscles!).
I’ve been riding this summer with a great trainer and yesterday we were working on ‘canter departures’. When a horse transitions from a trot to a faster pace of the canter they must make that change with the correct front foot—they literally have to ‘start on the right foot’. If they don’t, you’ll both be out of synch and in for a rough ride. You can probably see where I’m going with this…
Transitions are not easy—at first. If your horse doesn’t get the correct foot you have to go back and start again, give it another shot. You’ll get it once you prepare properly; when you’re ready with your hands and your feet, and clear in your heart and thoughts. When you get it, it’s easy; it’s smooth. When you don’t you it’s rough, it’s hard work and you wake up the next day with some sore muscles!
Fall is a big transition season. Some people love it (me!), others get a bit of dread about the harbinger season of winter. That's why I made our newest Fall Seasonal Candle: to help you get set-up and ready for a season of change. Just like my trainer set me up for success with my horse, the botanicals in this candle are created to help ease you through changes.
It has Rosewood for reinforcing your intuitive connection to your soul (where you find all your answers), lavender for alleviating emotional burdens, and fig blossom for building your ability to adapt to all of life’s ups and downs.
It’s the perfect candle to get set for fall and into winter, helping you to stay in synch with a life that is always changing! Oh, plus it smells amazing…but you could have guessed that!
I bet you’ll love it as much as I do!
