The Power to Create with Spring
Ahh, here we are! In the exciting energy of spring.
Spring is the time to wake up!
Shake off the dust of fear, lethargy and slumber.
Spring is time for creating, expanding and collaborating!
Each season has its unique energy and purpose. But, I have always loved the magic of spring.
In many traditions, including the Hindu tradition which has been my main tradition of practice, spring is considered the New Year. This has always seemed logical to me; because, quite simply, everything is emerging from sleep! New babies are born in nature, new leaves bud on the trees and animals and birds come out of hiding to enjoy the warmth that our Father Sun shines down on us.
This newness can be felt in all layers of self!
Our body goes through a slowing process during the winter. Especially if we live in a colder climate. So, in the spring, the lymph and metabolism and heart rate, that have slowed down to help us preserve energy, begin to wake up again. In the Ayurvedic tradition it is really important to do a cleansing of the physical body and sense organs during the spring.
There is also a nine day festival of rebirth in the Hindu tradition, where an archetype of the Goddess is worshiped each day, as a reminder to us to embody spiritual qualities.
I would like to invite you, on the sacred first day of spring to set your intentions for the next three months.
Follow these steps to set your intentions and manifest what you really want in life.
