“Our bodies are our garden
to which our wills are gardeners.”
~ William Shakespeare
Spring is the season of growth, rejuvenation, renewal and transformation.
So how can we embrace these qualities in our life? How can we apply the energies of the new season to support us in our personal transformation?
Take some deep in- and exhales and when you close your eyes, imagine that your life is a garden and that all aspects (like love/relationships, health, career, finances, happiness, personal development, etc.) have a section in it.
What do you see, smell, hear, feel or touch in your garden?
Can you see colors, hear birdsong, smell the fragrance of flowers, touch the blossoms of a tree, and taste the lemony flavor of a verbena leaf in your mouth?
When you are ready, gently open your eyes and please continue reading below.
Spring is a time to tend to your garden.
Take some time, to slow down, and look at your thoughts, habits, and perception. Think of each thought (habit and perception) as a plant. Look at it and ask yourself “Do I like this plant?” “Does it do me good? Does it have any healing properties?” “Is it a lovely, beautiful and happy plant?” If it is, keep nourishing it, water it daily and let it grow. If it isn’t, see if you may wish to go to the roots of it, dig it out, understand its meaning, acknowledge it and then let it go. Make a pile of those unwanted plants in your mind and when you are ready, release them in a mental bonfire.
Now it is time to set new intentions, to plant the seeds of your dreams. Then water and nourish them and eventually watch then grow.
I am so excited to be doing this in a wonderful ritual with my Goddess Sisters at the Spring Goddess Yoga Retreat on April 27th!
Join us (today is the last day to register!) or create your own ritual.
Happy gardening! May the seeds of your intentions transform into the fulfillment of your dreams!
Sending you many blessings from my heart to yours,
