It’s hard to believe it was a year ago everything changed, I remember thinking about closing the studio for a week or two, trusting we’d be back in our little sacred space in no time. A huge learning for me, and a process that continues.
Spring is a powerful time to honour the introspective winter months we’ve just moved through, as we begin to awaken like our natural world around us. This is a time of renewal and a time to set clear intentions as we plant new seeds in the fertile ground, awakening.
Over the next 6 months we’ll be experiencing a slow increase in the abundance of sunlight, we’ll be witnessing new growth all around us, and we’ll be feeling into an expansion in yang energy (a more outward and active energy).
Allow this to be a slow emergence if you can, I’m here to remind you there is no urgency, this is especially important this year as we have experienced and continue to navigate so much change on a micro and macro level.
Spring is a time we consider new beginnings, the birth of ideas, we cultivate hope, embrace joy, honour the space we need to thrive, and it’s also a good time to lay the groundwork for things you’d like to grow and create.
Sometimes, however, spring is also filled with anxiety over percieved expectations, or an urgency to get moving. Sometimes we can feel agitated inside, without understanding the why. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, turn to the practices you know nourish you – let them be your anchor, and be gentle with yourself – especially this year.
When we consider our spring cleaning; we need to spend time with our homes, our gardens and yards, our bodies, and it’s important to remember to also consider the clearing, cleansing and expression of your emotional truths. This is often the hardest part of our spring cleaning regime – but critical to your continued growth and expansion as a human.
As winters ice breaks up and the snow melts, we are offered an invitation to honour the flow of the currents moving at their own pace. Sitting with the waters of spring we can witness the nourishment of new growth, in ourselves and in the land, or perhaps reflecting on the growth and impact of this past year.
As we tend to and consider our responsibility in the care of the earth, I wonder if in that process you can also surrender to earths fertile energy and allow it to also support you – the planting of seeds within and around us, that may one day, with care and commitment, come to fruition.
Hold those seeds in your heart and breathe fresh energy into them.
