“Spring is a time of transition from the dormancy of winter to the promise of new life, rebirth, growth and change and infinite possibilities. Like the new green shoots that sprout through the long dormant, cold soil of winter, spring is the time of active energy.” – Spring Forest Qigong
While there are a lot of wonderful benefits to tidying up and take spring as an opportunity to let go of possessions that no longer serve us, shouldn’t we be treating out bodies to the same period of detox and renewal?
Here are some of my favorite ways to take advantage of Spring energies.
Sunshine and fresh air. I try to spend my mornings in the backyard, even if it’s just for a few minutes while I drink my coffee or write in my journal. In addition to being refreshing, it helps me get enough Vitamin D.
More sunshine also makes for excellent sun tea! Fill a pitcher up with water and some tea bags and after and hour or so (depending on how warm it is/ if it’s directly in the sun) you can pour yourself a glass of iced tea.
Fresh Veggies. I planted tomatoes, jalapeños, and kale in my little garden earlier this year and they’re growing like crazy! I haven’t had any jalapeños or tomatoes yet, but I’ve used some of my kale in a salad.
If you don’t have a garden of your own, even just a small basil plant (or your favorite herb) that can sit in your backyard or on a windowsill can bring some radiant plant energy into your life and encourage you to bring fresh plants into your diet. I know how hard it can be to eat well in our busy lives, but eating something you’ve grown is extra satisfying!
The truth is that these things are good at any time of year, but after a period of dormancy or stagnation (whether it’s an emotional winter or a literal one) it is especially important to nourish ourselves so we can flourish.
To that end, I have two special offers for you today.
Spring is a wonderful time to let go of trapped emotions and open your soul to growth and healing. To celebrate this, for a limited time you can get my ‘Creating Health: A Guided Meditation’ for free, or set your own price— pay whatever feels right for you and immediately receive a digital download. This free meditation is meant to help your body heal, no matter where you are in your health journey.
I’m also thrilled to tell you that for the month of May I will be offering four 30 minute one-on-one emotional clearing session for $125. Typically four sessions would be $240, but in the spirit of new growth I’m offering them to you for almost half price. Much like Spring Cleaning helps you to get all the cobwebs out of your house and get rid of possessions you no longer need, emotional clearing is an equally important way to release trapped emotions and turn your emotional baggage over to the universe.
I am so excited for us to go through this spring renewal together!
