The hot period is over and the nature is changing quite observable. Even when the german summer this year was more all the time autumn like, hahaha. But this temperature sense is the only measure point for the most of us. There is lot of changing all the time and very big changes are happen when the seasons are starting to change. Even when the human can´t see or feel it. Why it is ? There is a so called macrocosmos and microcosmos. When macrocosmos is changing the microcosmos will do it similar. There is something like a energetic connection between or correct said there is no separation. In autumn the days becoming shorter and the night longer. Means less sun, less warm the nature is getting ready for the winter pause. The last seasonal fruits getting picked up apples, pears, grapes, berries or vegetable like pumpkin or mushrooms and nuts are having their time. It is very good to eat always the seasonal food for your health and energy. These fruits or vegetables are full of the energy we need now for this particular season.
The autumn time is well known for its fast changing. The wind can create fast moves of clouds sun and rain can exchange very fast. Problem for us what to wear what to eat. So all the vegetable or fruits of this season are helping us with their specific type of energy. So leave out know the summer fruits from other countries or at least take them only a little if you can´t resist. If you can do it I´m sure you will have no or at least less health problem no or even for the coming winter.
