Awakening to the Magic of Spring! 

Spring is here again! As nature awakens one more time, let us also awaken to our true powers, let’s remember who we truly are, so that we can find peace and joy in our lives. 

Life commitments can sometimes drag us down and we feel stressed, confused, unsettled. When we feel other than harmony, peace, love, joy in our lives, we need to connect back to who we are. We need to remember the magic that exist within us. 

We are magnificent Spiritual Beings in human bodies. We are here to learn and grow and go back to our Source. While we are here, we also need to remember that this human body “is” part of the Earth. We are supported by Mother Earth and in her, we find solace, strength. We have all experienced the healing effects of connecting with nature, whether that’s the desert, the ocean, the mountain, or the oceans. Our body is made of earthly elements and it feels at home when we allow this connection. To find peace we must slow down and be in the present moment. Slowing down is a mental process and it is our choice. Here are a few ideas based on four elements of Mother Earth: 

  1. Air. Take a deep breath right now. Slowly inhaling and taking it all in and slowly exhaling. Feel the peace entering your body, letting go of any resistance as you exhale. Allow this wave of air slow your mind. Feel the peace and calm. Feel time stopping. Allow your mind to stop thinking, even for a moment, and enjoy this moment of silence. It is air that you are breathing, one of the elements of our Mother Earth.
  2. Fire: Light a candle and calmly sit in front of it. Contemplate the flame and allow it to bring peace into your being. Feel the peace permeating your body as you let go of daily concerns. Feel the power of fire entering your mind and body and filling you with confidence and strength. Allow the fire, another element of Mother Earth, to heal your mind and body.
  3. Water: Take a shower or go to the ocean or the river. Feel that water cleansing you, feel the power of connecting to another element of Mother Earth. Feel the healing power of water, let it flow through your body and mind. Imagine waves of water inside of your body, in every cell, flushing out any stress and toxics. Drink a cup of water like you’ve never done it before, slowly enjoying every sip you take, allowing it to move through your body, healing mind and body completely. 
  4. Earth: Walk barefooted on grass and feel how delicious it is. Allow yourself to feel it. Sit under a tree or in a garden, feel the power of earth coming up into your body. As you close your eyes and connect with the power of earth, feel supported, feel calm and relax. Know you are rooted into the earth. Know you are One with it. 

It’s Spring time. Let’s awaken to who we truly are. Let’s remember how beautiful and powerful we are. Let’s take time for ourselves by communing with Nature. Let’s open up and remember that you are totally supported by this Universe. Let’s open up and know that Mother Earth supports us. Let’s choose to be happy, it’s our birthright. 

May all your dreams and wishes come true. May you choose to remember how Beautiful and Powerful you Are!
