Harsh winters, I think, can steal a part of the spirit. Especially if the sun is too far to penetrate the darkness, it can be easy to stay beneath the heavy blankets of short days for far too long. It can become a habit of obscurity that sneaks up, takes hold like a bottle of spirits.
As organic beings, we hibernate somewhat during winter months, and then we too awaken refreshed in springtime. Or at least that’s the cycle of life plan….
Spring brings the promise of renewed life after the winter kill. Hormones pique; the skin tingled with the touch of the breeze’s fingers; people come out to experience the sun’s rays, and are generally friendlier and more engaged; once dead botany appears to miraculously come back to life.
I adore the energies of this season of awakening. As I lumber from my cave, blink at the sun, and embrace the freshness there is a (forgive the pun) spring in my step. It is clear that I am as much a part of Nature’s cycle as are the fluctuating seasons.
Despite what the thermometer says, wherever you are, I hope you’ll take a moment today to acknowledge the changing seasons, and to really feel your place among the cosmic perfection.
~Burst Out of the Darkness~
If you’re in the Northern hemisphere, celebrate that you have survived another winter, and that today is the first day of Spring, and perhaps of your emergence from the past. Today, make a choice to be, do, and have whatever it is you desire to be, do, or have.
The year is almost one-quarter over. Have you accomplished all you said you’d do this year? Are you on track for reaching a milestone? Today is the day to take stock, to shift your wing flaps and make certain you’re on course to reach the destination of your choice.
As always, with love, light, and gratitude.
