April Showers And Rain
The cherry blossoms in Washington D.C. have been absolutely beautiful. As I have been a fly on the wall and have been observing different conversations in passing - I have noticed mixed reviews of rain. Some people love it, while other complain about it. Many people know of the benefits to the natural world as rain falls gently, watering the plants that are thirsty. There is a cleansing quality, and an essence of purity that follows after a spring shower. It gives a sense of renewal and completion, much like taking a deep breath. Many people tend to distance themselves from nature, always focused on the next thing they need to do. A challenge that I have seen as I see client after client - is the trap that some people fall into where they tend to drift into their mind and let their thoughts run away with them. We challenge this idea in the journey group this month, as we explore our inner relationship with our mental wisdom body - and how healthy is it?
Excess in any form leads to a state of imbalance. For those that are too stuck in their mental wisdom body, physical symptoms and manifestations can be anxiety, headaches, and migraines (not saying that's where all of it comes from, but it tends to be a theme). One of the ways to remedy this, is to look toward nature and watch the rain droplets falling on our window sill. We take physical showers for our physical bodies - are you giving your mind the break and shower that it needs? To me, April showers make me smile because I am energetically cleansing my mind and releasing thoughts that I know would stir me into a state of anxiety or panic. There are many ways which I have found that I have changed over the years, and one of the ways that I have changed is by letting go more often, and being more in the present moment.
What are the ways that you cleanse and replenish yourself? Energy body hygiene is just as important as cleansing yourself physically. What old emotions or old thoughts are you holding onto that are causing you grief and slowing you down? Maybe during this season where there tend to be more showers, look towards nature to help you "clean up your act".
Fly high this month, you guys! There are many wonderful events going on. As we wake up to spring time, be gentle and easy with yourself. Now is a good time to start communicating more with friends, loved ones, and family - but also remember to take time for yourself and make yourself happy. I know I needed a reminder of that within the past few weeks.
