The Seasons of Life & The Effervescent Energy of Spring
I’m thinking of seasons on this first day of spring, 2021.
Not the three month kind, but the years long seasons of life. The ones that don’t come back and the ones that do, but greatly altered in the spiral of their return. Last year was one of those seasons that is still changing our daily living on so many fronts: Covid losses, social justice, economic stability, and political bridge-building.
What are the Seasons of Life?
Infancy, childhood, adolescence, raising children, marriages, seasons when we're sick and then healthy, seasons when we struggle and then move into the flow and synchronicity of life. Seasons when we don't know what we're doing or where we're going and then ones in which every step is clear. Seasons of being in love with a particular person and the whole of life and then seasons when we feel alone. Seasons of living.
And now, for me, this season where it's so much easier to be grateful for everything in my life, for all the equanimity, love, and graceful harmony.
Moving into Spring
In December, I moved into a new home and, ever since, it has been Spring in my heart. This new home has beckoned a growth in me. I didn’t even know how stagnant I felt in my old home, until I left it behind.
Now, with the energies of my beautiful new sanctuary, I feel an energetic shift in me. I’ve gotten healthier, more active and energized...stronger. My being had needed this shift for the next stage of my development, of my expression of me in and for this world. AND it’s SPRING!
I’ve been adding back in more ways of being that magnetize me towards fuller expressions of my true self. I’ve been nudged along, supported. My High Self, the Divine, now has my attention and is urging me. The blossoming of the crocuses, daffodils, and jonquils; the longer light, the quickening; and awakening energies everywhere around us—it is all perfectly timed for this new blossoming within me. How is it seeming to you?
The Season of Resurrection
This time, once again around the spiral, I’m responding with even less resistance, less inertia. I’m moving forward to be as open and as present to all scales of life—from the minuscule to the vast.
And I remember, YES! The season of resurrection is upon us!
Once I let myself open to the energy of resurrection, I felt it more in my body—this renewal of life within me. Resurrection, of course, is not a one-time experience. It is cyclical and spiral. Where are we this season of renewal compared to last? Where are you? These seasons of life are unquestionably ones in which our experience of it transforms from one return to the next.
The Season of Growth
While I’ve always enjoyed the gift of farsightedness, from here, from this vantage point high on the mountain of experience, what I see is so vast and it is breathtaking beyond comparison! I can feel that rise in my energy, that quickening of my pulse coming from inside of me as these words come that I’m eager to share with you in this inaugural newsletter: Sacred Pause. I’m transforming my business, and so many aspects of how I show up in the world, including this newsletter.
