Spring Affirmation Week 9
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
By acknowledging and accepting personal truth,
I claim the harshness I focus on myself and others.
Fear bubbles up in terse notes and de-humanizing demands.
In fear, harshness is the reactive motion of protection.
Harshness is the destructive voice of self-judgment.
Harshness is the demand for perfection.
Is this truly my path?
Does harshness toward self and others serve my Best Self?
Only I can decide for me.
Only I can let go of the choice of harshness.
In this moment, in this Spring, I claim the release of harshness for the sake of my Best Self.

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In Spring, self learns of outdated habits and beliefs.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.Excerpt from Spring: Claim Your Best Self
