Fall is the season to purge! This is a great time to let go of things around that house that are no longer needed. This also goes for emotional things that are old and no longer useful that we are holding onto!
This is also seen in nature, trees drop their leaves, allowing them to back into the earth, which in turn help to grow new plants! Trees don't hold onto dead leaves in case they need them in the future. You have to let go of the decayed leaves to let new ones in! Metal is the element of fall and associated with letting go!
When often think of spring as the time to purge things, as in a spring clean. In fact you need to do a fall purge to properly be able to do a spring clean. Fall is the season to turn inwards, to reveal what is really important in our lives by letting go of the stuff that isn't.
