As the colours of the leaves change and the temperature gets colder, we are reminded of change. Change is constant.

The secret of change is not to focus all of your energy on fighting the old but on building the new. Autumn reminds us of the impermanence of everything. Change is the only constant and we should embrace it.

One way we can do this is by putting out into the universe that which we want to receive – abundance, love, gratitude, relaxation, connection – whatever it is, you have the power to work with the universe to make it happen.

If we keep our thoughts and our emotions focused on love, joy and gratitude the universe will send what we want our way … and our ability to flow with the change will be easier.

The power of positive affirmations in this season’s magazine helps us to stay in a positive mindset and keep focused on the good and the joy in our lives. If you are interested in the law of attraction, check out The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.

With this in mind I would like to formally welcome the Lakes and Hawke’s Bay area to the Oracle family and to thank Nicola, Carina and Julia for their contributions to Sunflower Oracle.
