Spring urges us to plant, grow and blossom. Even before the earth and air really hint at warmth, green shoots push up through the brown ground with encouragement. “You can do it,” they say. “Look at us!”
With all the newness unfolding around us, we may begin to wonder if there might not be something new we’d like to see in our lives. There may be a new skill we have always wanted to learn or a healthier habit we feel would improve our life. We may long for closer connections to those around us. This could be our family, friends and co-workers. We may find ourselves looking for ways to give back more and make a difference in the world.
So then it is up to us. We cannot wait expectantly for our lives to change if we are unwilling to take some action. As we begin to hear old familiar songs in our head, it is easy to ignore the nudges to grow and blossom. “I don’t know how,” “I am too old,” “I am too young,” or “I don’t have the time or money.” Sometimes we just don’t know what we want. So we take no action at all.
Any time is a great time for spiritual and personal growth, but there is an urgency to grow especially in the spring. The warmer weather inspires us to get rid of what we no longer need, whether it’s junk from the loft or an old habit. We may clean rubbish from a flower bed or a closet, or we may want to “clean out” our minds.
What are the limiting thoughts that come up most frequently in your mind as you consider beginning a new project, relationship or adventure? Take time to find the root of those thoughts. Ask yourself, “Why do I think that? Where have I heard that idea before?” As you find the root you can begin to change your thoughts and thought patterns.
There is a part of you untouched by all the outer judgements and criticisms. There is a spiritual essence in your being that is strong and wise and loving and powerful. Once you remember this you will be able to harness the power that will help you to change and perform the things you really want to do.
Buried beneath the clutter of those limiting thoughts, the truth of your being is pushing up in new growth. There is a belief of something in all of us, it’s within our being. As we pull out those unhelpful thoughts, we can replace them with the powerful truth of who we are and what we are capable of.
