Spring is a time for renewal, growth, and expansion; we feel it in the air. Even though we can do this at any time during the year, it feels just right to do it during Spring. We seem to have that extra energy and focus to get physically active, take action, and create change.
Spring is a great time to envision endless possibilities, and to use our creative gifts to reach new levels of achievement, wellness, happiness and success.
The traditional spring cleaning
Spring is a good time to let go of the old and make room for the new. This can apply to the traditional spring cleaning but most importantly we need to apply it to letting go of old grudges, resentments, and anger that holds us back from enjoying inner peace and more happiness in our lives. When we hold on to the old we keep ruminating and re-visiting old wounds and they keeps us stuck. And sometimes we don’t even know it. When we choose to let go of the old we make room for the new and open the door to endless possibilities that are waiting for us.
Care of ourselves
We all have struggles and it’s called life. While it is true that some challenges are harder than others, this only means that we have to work harder at letting go. We are all being guided through the learning process of figuring out life by overcoming its challenges; this is part of our earthly journey. When we have been exposed to hard life experiences our brain goes on high alert and it doesn’t want us to forget it because it wants to protect us –our survival is our brain’s main concern. Our brain will keep us on high alert scanning for potential harm. We have to help our brain understand that the event is over and that we are safe; that we have learned from the experience and that we can take care of ourselves.
Make everything new around you
While Spring naturally invites us to letting go of the old to make room for the new, I encourage people to do it on a regular basis to optimize happiness and wellbeing. When it comes to transformation and renewal think of what Pablo Neruda said in one of his love poems “I want to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.”
Be receptive to unforeseen possibilities and remember to be ready at any moment to fall in love and to be happy. That is what I wanted to say.
