Spring Equinox, renewal and rebirthMichele
Enter the time of Spring Equinox. The time of renewal and rebirth. It is for most a fiery energy of action, of movement, as well as the fruition of seeds planted during the last few weeks. Equinox is not the beginning of the spring season, it is the height of spring. It is the energy necessary to propel us towards the energy of an active summer culminating with solstice. So how does one effectively use this energy to help manifest and co-create life? Equinoxes always signal a chance for change and for renewal, taking the nourishment from the previous cycle. Equinoxes also are a powerful time to connect to the grounding qualities of Earth to anchor in your new visions and dreams. The anchoring of the energy allows you to firmly plant yourself into the ground and draw into your body the vitality and freshness of the Spring growth. Grounding into the Earth allows your to firmly walk towards the new goals that you have set for yourself. Connecting to the energy of Spring is like connecting to a seed thought and giving yourself permission to feel freedom, and to express your idea and weave it into a new picture, or a new expression, ultimately creating a new and joyful reality. Take advantage of what we find in nature. Spring is characterized by wind, use wind to release discordant and stressful energy. Open your windows, allow breezes to flow into and through your home. Spend time outdoors and visualize worries being carried away on the wind. The light of the sun will transform the stress and discord, much the same way that the ancients used fire in a ceremony or ritual to surrender something that needed to be unloaded. Celebrate this newness, observe new life, hatching of dreams, celebrate the rebirth of nature. All is in expansion. What part of you is being reborn? Honor it!
