As Spring and Winter continue their annual dance for dominance, we follow along with the freeze and the thaw, the wax the wane, the flow the ebb. Weather at this time of year in Northeast Ohio definitely mimics events in our own lives. The only difference is that Nature never worries, never hurries, never doubts that all is in divine order. One day the warmth and sunshine invite courtship dances from all creatures great and small... the woodlands are full of the sweet sound of birdsong and the forests and meadows--even our own backyards-- are filled with the scurrying of animals emerging from their Winter slumber and intent on the busy-ness of life at this time of year. In flower beds, fields, wetlands and parks, Spring bulbs and hardy foliage push their tenacious heads heavenward, seeking the light. Even the trees are beginning to awaken from their slumber. All may pause for a moment when Winter winds, cold and snow rudely push their way back into having the upper hand, but the wheel of the year moves ever onward, unconcerned with the weather forecast and undeterred by the push and pull energy of the seasons. Spring will eventually win this yearly competition, and all of Nature trusts fully in this wisdom.
Sometimes within our own lives, we fail to trust in the exquisite perfection of creation. We forget that with every ebb, the flow will return. With every freeze, there will be a thaw. With every Winter, there will come an abundant Spring, full of newness and vibrant growth and possibility. We also often fail to remember that WE are the creator goddesses and gods of our lives! We alone hold the power to determine the course of the seasons of our lives and how dormant or abundant they will be. Nature is our greatest teacher on this Earth walk. Look to Gaia and notice that perfection in every snowflake, every blade of grass, every drop of rain, every flower bud, every leaf, every living creature that walks, flies or creeps upon the Earth.
And let us not forget to include ourselves in that list of beautiful creatures full of exquisite perfection! Loving ourselves exactly as we are is THE most important thing we will ever do and more important now than ever. Dear Ones, we are at such a crucial, critical phase of creation! We are almost there! This is what we have worked lifetimes and eons for! Dearest Old Souls, can you truly love and accept yourselves in this moment? Can you trust and surrender to the flow all around you? The Universe has your back and this lifetime, everything is different. The energy has changed! The Light quotient of the planet has changed! Everything is shifting faster than we can keep track! Old Souls, we have done it! Can you give yourselves a pat on the back? Can you congratulate yourselves? Can you celebrate a long, arduous job fabulously done? Can you finally find that peace and joy that has eluded you lifetime after lifetime? Now is the time to relax completely into that space of love, peace, joy and abundance that you have always wanted. Know that you are worthy. Know that you are amazing. Know that you are divine. Remember who you are beautiful ones and join the celebration! Trust that the Spring is almost here, even on days when the Winter winds howl. It is time to emerge, grow, and bloom in riotous profusion. Let's join together in the Oneness and create the most beautiful garden Gaia has ever seen!
