Spring Affirmation Week 2
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
By acknowledging and accepting personal truth,
I claim my heart’s pain.
In truth, beyond denial, the dynamics of Spring bring me face to face with whatever tears at my heart.
This pain need not be dealt with in one huge motion.
Instead, I feel into the aching bits and I am honest about why there is hurt and harm.
This hard work yields my path away from break down and into break through.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
Present to my awareness, my heart feels pain because …
I feel pain when ….
At the edges of my hard bits, I feel this resistance …
I do not want to claim pain because …
These are the bits I will work on claiming …
In this moment, I can claim …
Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.
Mary Tyler Moore
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In Spring, self learns of outdated habits and beliefs.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 all of you.
