Important Fall Longevity Program


Now that it’s autumn, you’ll start to feel new
things in the air and in your body. It’s time to
start changing a few things in your program. As
the season changes, it is important to adjust and
fine-tune your exercise, your diet, sleep and your
meditations. I’ll explain more as we go on…

I walked to my new training spot on the beach in
Hollywood early this morning. images
You can feel fall wherever you live. When I lived
in Michigan and walked in the woods, I would know
there was a shift. I remember feeling the chill of
autumn at this time of the year. Golden leaves lay
scattered on the ground. The smell of dry, burning
leaves filled my nostrils. It’s amazing how
quickly we descend from the warmth of summer to
the chill of fall. The nights are longer than the
days, there is more energy leaving the earth’s
atmosphere than entering it. If you are quiet
enough inside, you will feel the shift, the smells
are different and, if you watch the animals in
your surroundings, you’ll see their behavior has

We have moved into the season of the Metal energy
where Autumn cleans out old negativity. Fall is
the season when we learn more about ourselves than
in any other season. Now that the harvest of late
summer is over, nature now makes everything bare.
The growing season is over, and it is time to turn
inward and let go of things that hinder your
growth. The energy of fall dropping the old, just
like the trees drop their leaves at this time of
the year.

In Chinese medicine, Autumn is the season of the
Metal element. Sadness and grief are the emotions
of the Metal element. We all experience loss,
separation, and the need to let go, and it’s
natural to feel the grief at these times. Grief
cleanses us of what is no longer needed in our
lives. The large intestines is the organ of the
Metal element. It has the function of eliminating
what is unnecessary or toxic from our system, both
physically and mentally. On the other hand, valor
and courage are the positive themes of the season.
Start moving forward with your projects and be
inspired to get things going. The lungs and large
intestines work together as a team, one taking in
the pure Qi, the other eliminating toxic wastes.
If there is a blockage in your system, you may
experience symptoms of bronchitis, shortness of
breath, cough, allergies, nasal congestion, colds,
sore throat, constipation or diarrhea, and
abdominal pain.

The Metal element is at its peak now, and we are
particularly open to treatment. Using the wisdom
of Chinese medicine, we can rebuild the Metal
within us physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Now is the time to contain yourself, speak only
when necessary, true and kind, behaving with
economy, and exerting your will quietly and
calmly. To get in harmony with the autumn season,
go through your closet, desk, garage, medicine
cabinet, or any cluttered storage area, and
discard what you no longer need. Diet should
include more squash, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and
root veggies. Go to sleep earlier and wake up a
little later. As for your internal exercises and
meditations, it is now time to join the Qi Gong
Inner Circle and learn the
Fall longevity secrets.

I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth, and
