81. Autumn Blues and Lower Back Pain
When autumn comes, the leaves fall and many people become depressed. I always find this remarkable. The autumn is so incredibly beautiful with all the colors and I always secretly find it so wonderful when the leaves have been tidied up again and the trees show us their lovely system of branches. It always seems so wonderfully organized.
For many people, however, autumn is unpleasant. They are confronted with the “decay” of the leaves and with the transience of life. Many people have a shortage of vitamin D and miss the necessary amount of sunlight. They have more trouble when time changes to wintertime and it becomes darker an hour earlier. If you do the MIR-Method, it’s possible that your autumn blues diminish!
Are you inside already?
Yet, autumn with its rugged rains and darkness has many advantages. That is, for example, the case if you really enjoy being inside. Light some candles and enjoy the warmth. For many people, this is the moment to find their way inside. Contact with other people lessens and there are more moments of tranquility and reflection.
Are you facing a choice?
This reflection is often necessary to be able to make choices in the hectic lives we find ourselves in. Many people begin to have problems with their lower backs. Both bladder meridians flow through the lower back. If you are facing a choice, the bladder meridian can get disturbed and result in pain. Lower back pain forces you to take it easy and to turn within yourself and pay attention to yourself. What am I doing? Do I really want that?
The answer is in the silence
Whenever you make room, or are forced to take it easy because of your body, you create peace around you. In the silence, in the attention you give yourself, in the emptiness in your head, therein lies the answer. And then one day your inner wisdom just appears. You suddenly know what you need to do! It’s suddenly crystal clear which way you want to go! And all that you need to do is to listen and act on it and hey, where did the back pain go?
What role does the MIR-Method play in this?
The MIR-Method has its idiosyncrasies. One of the strongest steps is step 9: ‘Clarify mission’. By stroking this step, you are giving your subconscious the assignment to clarify your life path, your passion. And even if you’ve been following the wrong path for a long time, it can be good for your body to put on the brakes and stop your daily scampering from one thing to another. It can do this through intense fatigue or other “problems”, which force you to pay more attention to yourself. The solution? As quickly as possible reflect on yourself, turn off the telephone and the TV, and rest, rest and once again rest and work your way inside.
Besides that, with step 4: ‘Clear meridians’ your body will help you to deblock the energy in the bladder meridian. This makes you more capable to shrug off uncertainty and to make decisions. Good luck!
I’d love to hear from you. Have you had the experience that your body put on the brakes and you had to reflect on what you were doing? In your work? In your life? Please write about it below! Thank you!
Personal questions should always be asked of a MIR-Method coach!
My wish for you is inner peace during this autumn period and that your inner wisdom gets all the space it needs!

I started the MIR-Method on August 17, 2015. I started with steps 5-7 for two weeks as suggested. Then I am now into my third week of doing all 9 steps.
I have noticed:
detoxifying symptoms of breaking out with a small rash between my breasts, little itchiness, underarm oder intensified. My stools were very loose , but are now beginning to look more normal, My skin is looking better, more clear, ears are very itchy inside.
My question is, I have been experiencing chronic pain from my sciatica for the last 12 months. What can I do to relieve my sciatica pain? Location is on the right side, pain radiates down the leg, right hip, and lower back. I am receiving acupuncture but no relief of pain. Thank you so much for the MIR-Method . I am 64 years old, Cheri Lynn
Your body is clearly responding well to the MIR-Method. Good! Now, what we noticed in the Netherlands, is that when you put your hand on the spot, your hip for example, or on your lower back, while stroking the 9 steps, it gave relief more quickly. Could you give that a try, please? I hope to hear from you how you’re doing. And it may take quite some time, but your body is doing its work, so please continu.
I also suffer from sciatica. It is due to a slipped disc and inflammation in the lower back. I have started the MIR method although I have not noticed any major differences in myself. I would like to do what you suggested above and put my hand on my lower back where the pain is while doing the steps but it is quite uncomfortable as I have to stretch. so you have any other suggestions? With thanks.
What you can do instead of your hand, is put a pillow behind you, pressing softly against your lower back. It is directing your subconscious toward your lower back and so you give the MIR-Method some extra focus on your lower back. I really hope it will give you some relief shortly. Take care!

I first tried the MIR-Method this past January and did it every day until April, then I stopped for a few weeks and restarted it until mid-July at which time I lost a sister to metastatic liver cancer. At this time, I stopped because I was grieving and just did not care about much for the first month…but I have restarted again three days ago.
What I noticed when I first started doing the MIR-Method and that I would get all tender inside when I did it and how this translated in my life is like this. Where I can feel divine love passing through me and going to others and where I trust this, I had difficulty feeling this same divine love within myself and, with the MIR-Method, I started being able to feel this divine love in me and for me and feel it in my body, in all my cells. And I was starting to loose that feeling so I restarted doing it to connect to this divine love for myself as it seems easy for me to share it when I give Reiki or send distance healing to others, but more difficult to feel for myself. One of the ways the MIR-Method changed my life is that I can feel an opening in myself because of what I shared above and I keep restarting the MIR-Method simply because it feels good when I do it…I give myself the love that I need to be a better person and, that in itself, is reason enough to continue; but I know that, with time, it will change my outer life too! Thank you Mireille for this wonderful tool.
It’s great to read how you pick up the MIR-Method whenever you feel like it again. I like it that way, because then you can help yourself every time you need it. When you wrote ‘I give myself the love that I need to be a better person’, I smiled, because that is exactly what I hope will happen inside people. When everyone would love her/himself, wouldn’t we have a totally different world?
Thank you for sharing and good luck!
I also love autumn with its colours, bare trees, less chaos and I love being on my own, inside. I have more energy for some reason and want to do things, especially things that I have left to do, due to the heat, and this year we had a scorcher here in Italy.
Lower back pain is always with me, due to operation in 2002 and falling, but, it does not stop me.
The MIR method has helped me a lot and some articles have helped me to understand myself more.
Thank you very much.
Great, another autumn-lover! I am sad to hear that your lower back pain is caused by an operation. I wish the MIR-Method could do something about it for you, but I guess that would be a miracle. I am very glad it doesn’t stop you, however!
Have a great autumn-time in Italy! It must be wonderfully beautiful then, with all the colours in nature!
