For most of us, the warmer weather and longer days signal a time of renewed energy and enthusiasm that feels more vibrant and fuller of potential. This Spring feels especially opportune coming after a prolonged somber period. Between the heaviness of the pandemic and social unrest, many of us looked forward to putting 2020 behind us. The pandemic, in particular, kept many of us indoors and away from our preferred routines for extended periods, just as harsh winter weather often does.
Now, with the hope provided by vaccines and COVID-19 cases starting to at least head in the right direction, we have more reason to be optimistic as we enter this most uplifting time of year.
In springtime, “flow” is naturally moving in the direction of renewal and rebirth all around us. We can readily choose to wade into the stream and let it carry us. Just as we use this time of year to spruce up our homes and surroundings through spring cleaning rituals, we can focus the clearing and cleansing inward as well. If we wish to do that consciously, the natural steps in the process are:
- Letting go of the old.
- Returning to your root.
- Trusting the process.
