Fall: Letting Go With Breath
Fall relates to the energy of the Lungs and Large Intestines. They are paired organs in the way that they are both organs of elimination. We eliminate digestive waste via the large intestines and respiratory waste (CO2) via the lungs. Seaonally, fall is the time of harvest. It is a time when trees start to let go of their leaves and crops of fruits, vegetables, and grains are gathered in preparation for the winter. “Letting go” are key words for the fall season and this fits with TCM's principles of seasonal energies.
