As I was taking out something for the garbage the other day I noticed something different. Along the pathway from my front door to the driveway, there were green stems popping up through the soil. I stopped and bent down, taking a closer look. “Oh my goodness”, I thought, “It’s spring!” The bulbs I planted last fall are actually coming up through the ground.
Those of us that live in different parts of the world are experiencing different seasons right now. And that experience of various seasons is very personal to each of us. Some love the heat and activities of summer, while others love the cold and activities of winter.
Depending upon our personalities and preferences certain seasons resonate with us more or less on an energetic level. I for example, love spring. While January 1, the beginning of the new year brings me a sense of starting over, spring also feels like a rebirth and new beginning. There is more daylight, the days are getting warmer and I notice, pun intended, a spring in my step. It doesn’t even matter why. I just adore spring and it’s new growth and possibilities.
I know a previous client of mine who lives in Australia (who I’m sure is reading this along with you) who adores Autumn. I don’t know exactly why that’s the case for her but I bet she can tell you what she loves so much about it and how she feels energetically during that time. I’ve got yet another friend who digs winter. If she could, she’d be out snowboarding every single day.
And this seasonal energy is something I strongly believe you should pay attention to and take advantage of. It’s part of the ebb and flow of our lives. You can’t be “on” all the time without burning out and you can’t lie around all the time without becoming a slug. There’s a balance to it. Just like within each day, we each have a time we’re more productive because of our energy level, it’s the same with the seasons. In certain seasons they are times of growth and moving and within others there are times of rest.
One of the hardest parts about our culture is the push to be moving and producing all the time. That isn’t practical or sustainable. Look at Mother Nature. There’s a reason crops grow, are harvested, and then the ground must rest for a while. You are no different.
Maybe this is your season to move and maybe this is your season to relax. If you pay attention to your body, your mood, your energy, it will tell you what you need the most. And if you follow it, I can pretty much guarantee, your life will overall feel much more smooth and you will feel more in tune with it.
Please share if you know just the perfect person who needs this.
