Each season has an energy to it. For instance, Spring is the energy of renewal, and Winter is the energy of withdrawal and rest.
For the empath, Autumn / Fall, can be a terribly depressing time. It’s the time when things are dying. Leafs are falling off the trees, the days are getting shorter and the weather is growing colder.
For me, there were two weeks in May, our Autumn, where I would fall into a deep, deep depression. It was debilitating and I could barely function. After a couple of week, things would settle, and I would still feel depressed, but could function again.
It wasn’t till Spring came that things would seem to shift, and there was hope again. My depression even lifted for a few months.
But the cycle would repeat every year. And while I made the connections as to what was happening, I was powerless to do anything about it.
It’s been a long time now since I’ve suffered that, and I believe that clearing my past shock and trauma had a lot to do with that.
The energy of the season, especially for the empath, can magnify how you are feeling.
Apart from clearing the causes of your depression, it also is a good idea to work with the energy of the season. While you may not be able to do this on a professional or work level, it’s possible to do this on a personal level.
Fall is the time to withdraw and rest, but Spring will come, and make hay while the sun shines, as the saying goes.
