Reflections: Seasons, Spring

Season-spring

Awakening as from a deep sleep
Pungent and dank as the forest floor
Emerging fresh as first flowers

Like a spring-fed stream, she restores a promise
Of new life – a titillating pulse stirring within

Life beckons, entices, arouses
Blossoming fertility
Glowing pregnancy
Anticipation

Here are some suggested ways help embody the reflection of this season:

  • Lying in your bed as you awaken each morning, know it as the spring of a new day.
  • Take a breath and smell the potential of life in the making.
  • Feel deep down in your belly – what new life is stirring within?
  • What is your heart’s desire for this new day?
  • See yourself emerging from the cocoon of the night as a fresh butterfly into the day.
  • Stretch your whole body, deliciously sensuously.
  • Listen within,
  • A promise awakens.
  • Place your hands on your belly and give yourself the pleasure of living within this intent –
  • just for this day.

Winter Solstice (or Summer Solstice down under)

Soltices and equinoxes sit in the center of the season wheel, catalyzing the cycles of death, life, rebirth, change, and movement.  Grandmother Earth’s internal, introspective movement moves counterclockwise to produce the seasons of fertility and abundance of all forms of all things.  Take a moment to breathe the energy of this solstice deep into every cell of your being, allowing the death of the that which no longer serves you, so that there is room for the seeds of new life to sprout and flower.
