Here in Wisconsin we are experiencing the return of the robins. Have you seen them? Have you heard them singing? In a state that experiences a long winter (and this year was especially brutal), the return of the robin signifies the beginning of spring. It’s typically a time where we have a spring in our step, coming out from the dark cold winter months feeling hopeful and reenergized to see the reemergence of green, of light and of life.
Some of us mark spring by engaging in spring housecleaning. Decluttering our homes and renewing them for the year. It can be a time for the attitude of "out with the old and in with the new". Spring can also be a great time to declutter our minds, our mental energy, our emotional energy, and our spiritual energy. An "out with the old and in with the new" so to speak. A planting of a new energetic seed.
It's a great time to check in and take a look at what we want to clear out and let go of and what it is that we want to plant. It's a time for transference and manifesting. A time to reflect on what it is that you want to draw into your life.
A time to remember that what you water, what you give energy to, what you give your attention to...grows.
What is it that you would like to energetically clear out to make space for planting some new seeds to grow? What old story are you willing to let go of, so you can energize a new story, a new way of being, a new mindset, a new experience? What are those seeds that you would like to plant this spring?
Take a few moments this week to be still and check in with where you are at. What's going well and what isn't? What would you like to clear out to make room for something different? Step off that hamster wheel of life and reflect, reevaluate, renew, reenergize and rejuvenate. Don't get sucked into the belief that you don't have time.
This week, I invite you to be still, to be intentional, to remember that what you water, what you give energy to, grows. Whatever it might me for you, let the site and sound of the robins serve as an invitation to put a spring in your step. Shake off the winter blues and get into the action. During the winter I would typically hibernate starting at 5 pm, now that we are moving into spring it's lighter out later, the days feel longer and full of energy. It's time to put a spring in your step!
