Spring Affirmation Week 1
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
By acknowledging and accepting personal truth,
I claim the hard bits of my life.
Times are tough.
Running away is not helpful.
Neither is denial nor pretending ignorance.
Tough as it is, I look the hard bits straight on and truthfully name them.
This helps reduce resistance.
Now I have identified where my transformation in Spring can begin.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
In my life in this moment, I feel this is hard and beyond my ability to cope …
Challenge is difficult because …
I feel resistance to the hard bits because …
I do not want to claim the hard bits because …
In this moment, I can claim …
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.
The Transformative Energy of Spring
As the sun shifts in the sky and begins to warm the toes of all roots, the energy of Spring moves forward from the energy of Winter.
Winter dreams lay the groundwork for the emergence of Spring’s warmth.
Sun and moon are moving toward a balance which supports the transformative energy of Spring: CLAIM.
Think of the motion of the daffodil and the tulip. In Spring, their emergence establishes a fullness through a claim of all possibility. This dynamic claim resists the urge to hold back, to be less than even in small ways.
In Spring, self learns of outdated habits and beliefs. Instead of running or denying, Spring offers the chance to claim the acknowledgement and release as heart-felt truth.
Spring energy shines light to warm the blood and support flow on all levels of body, mind, heart, and soul.
Now is the time to bloom, to allow the dreams of Winter to excite and ignite.
Think of uncovering, of emergence into the light to claim of all of you.Excerpt from Spring: Claim Your Best Self
