Release, Recoup, and Reorganize

Springtime is a natural period for cleansing, rebirth and rejuvenation. We see it all around us in Nature and feel it instinctively in ourselves.  Just as the caterpillar must retreat into his cocoon for this period of quiet resting before metamorphosing and emerging as a butterfly, so we must have the patience to quietly accept this period of “non-doing” to completely move forward into whatever new wonders and adventures await us down the road.

May I be blessed with the Faith, Freedom from Fear and Patience to truly make the most of this beautiful resting phase.

….a place to rest, wind down and relax following a period of extreme turmoil, particularly in the areas of financial security and relationships. This place can be of great blessing if we can muster the patience to appreciate the blessings of this place joyfully and gratefully and of course with great Faith in the wisdom and compassion of God and the Universe.

It is imperative that I take proper care of myself during this transition in all ways…spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally, without becoming anxious or fearful.

I have no idea where the path is heading or even if I will continue along the same path I am now on.  Perhaps big upheavals are in store, or perhaps little changes which will slowly lead me in a new direction.

My natural curiosity and impatience make this waiting difficult and I need assistance in curbing them.  It is an essential part of my daily prayer and meditation session now to request this assistance from God, the Angels and other Enlightened Beings and Ascended Masters.

“Sometimes doing nothing is doing something very Important”.

It would be wonderful to be able to peek through the fence, so to speak, and get a sneak preview of what lies ahead.  At times we may be given gentle hints if we are extremely mindful along the way. But not always.  Patience, and Faith, once again are the things we need to pray for most during this period of quiet “being”.

As a flower peeks through the fence, we would also love a preview of what awaits us

The unknown always brings up fears and these also must be acknowledged and released.  It is all part of the cleansing process which is preparing us for whatever the next stage in our life holds in store for us.

May I be blessed with the Faith, Freedom from Fear and Patience to truly make the most of this beautiful resting phase.

The blessings of renewal, rebirth and rejuvenation in cyclical change

fall leaves city street.jpg.jpeg

A colorful, exquisite, collective reminder of the impermanence of all things, of the necessity of never-ending change in the life of all living things…a gentle and loving reminder of the cycle of life and the exquisite beauty of, and Natural need for endings, which make rebirth and renewal possible. The inevitability of change which cannot be fought, which must be accepted as the blessing it is.

The leaves are a reminder of the precious blessings in each moment. Each with its own story and individual and unique beauty as it reaches the end of its cycle, making way for new and continued Natural beauty and creation.

I have been away for some time now, also due to cyclical life changes, which we must accept without fighting them…we cannot control these life changes and upheavals, and resisting them can only lead to pain, frustration, anger and a feeling of helplessness.

Accepting all things as a blessing, with joy, gratitude, Faith and Freedom from Fear, makes moving through these changes much easier.  And when we look back at them, we may even understand why they happened!  The present is all we have.  And the present, following life’s upheavals, is a whole new blessing, whch may have been disguised but finally does reveal itself if we are mindful enough to appreciate it.

I AM so truly blessed-and happy to be back!

A Time for Cleansing and Renewal

Brilliant blue skies, invigorating breeze whipping around your hair (for those who have it(!)), bird songs everywhere, the heady smell of orange blossoms, flowers and trees in bloom,  the hum of bees, renewed warmth and sunshine – these are all the wonderful blessings of  Spring in the Air.

After a very long, dreary, cold and rainy winter (which is of course a blessing in a country which never has enough water-but this doesn’t make the winter any easier to live through for those of us who don’t do well in cold and damp), these wonderful blessings of Spring are even more appreciated and welcome.

And when everything is renewing itself in Nature, we, as human beings also feel the need for renewal, hence the common practice all over the world of “spring cleaning”.   This does not have to end with the physical cleaning of our homes and gardens.  It is a perfect season for Nurturing ourselves as well. A perfect time to literally cleanse and rejuvenate ourselves as well physically.  We all have our own ways of doing this, but one of my favorite is to spend a few days just juicing, or if a full juice fast is too difficult (as it is for me),  eating lightly and drinking at least a liter of freshly juiced veggies and fruits during the day.  The effects are instantaneous and the benefits many.  When I am in India of course, I do my month long Panchakarma which is the height of detox and rejuvenation, but alas, I will miss out on this, this year

And then of course, we might want to move on to further cleansing, on other levels . The time when all of Nature is bursting forth in bloom and renewing itself, is a perfect opportunity for our own body (as above) but also mind and Spirit to blossom forth with new vigor. There are many ways to “feel clean” on levels other than physical.  Just one quick example (see how many you can imagine yourself), is to imagine water flowing over, around and through you and gently washing away anything which is no longer of value or use to you in your life.

Feel its cool flow and imagine its clarity and its cleansing effects.  This exercise can easily be worked into your meditation practice, or as an exercise in itself a couple of times a day.  It is also helpful to do it while actually in the shower, while the actual water is cleansing you from the outside, imagine this flow cleansing you from the inside.  Use your imagination.  Play with the idea, and ENJOY!

It is also the time of year when Passover is celebrated, also know as the Festival of Freedom-not just for the obvious reason of the children of Israel being freed from slavery, but a celebration of our freeing ourselves from types of enslavement – Freedom from limiting thought patterns, negative emotions and perceptions, and most important-Freedom from Fear and the renewal and strengthening of Faith.  Faith in God and the Universe, and Faith in ourselves and our Divine right to live  a full, joyous and blessed life.

If you choose to, you can also ask the Angels for assistance in this rebirthing process.  You may have your favorite Angels that you turn to, or you could ask Archangel Raphael for help as he is the remover of all obstacles to healing (some of you might choose to turn to Ganesh for removing of obstacles of any kind on your journey), to Archangel Gabrielle, who brings us into full awareness of our Divine, subtle but powerful feminine energies and strength, Archangel Michael who protects us, fills us with cleansing white light and removes negativity on all levels, and finally, Archangel Uriel, guiding us forward in this adventure we call our life journey and this period of renewal and growth. He guides us through the difficult choices, (he is sometimes called the psychologist Angel) lighting the way when it becomes dark and frightening, and giving us the “road map” when the road becomes confusing and we don’t know which way to turn next.

Will try and post further suggestions for deeper cleansing, but for now, am concentrating on the physical me, and trying to devote as much energy to the process, including extra sleep and rest during the day, so posts will be shorter than usual and more sporadic.

Will be sharing further ideas, and would love to hear from you as well about your own ways of cleansing and rejuvenating yourselves.

with much light love and JOY
