“Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard.” -Anne Sexton. It’s a Winnie the Pooh sort of time of the year when blustery days give way to warm spring days. It’s a lovely Sunday for kite, flying, playing gold, walking the dog and just plain getting outside. If February’s cold rains kept you inside these past few weeks today was a welcome cabin fever breaker. To the crocus poking out before spring has officially sprung is all part of the never ending cycles of life. Late winter and early spring can be stressful times for some folks because in the weeks preceding the spring equinox, March 19 2016, life starts all over again.
Spring equinox, a time when the days and nights are equal in length. Have you noticed it is still day light at 7pm? 5th Annual Daffodil Festival Over 100 varieties making up 20 million daffodils that covers 50 acres in the North Georgia hills. Just an hour north of Atlanta, Gibbs Gardens.
The totem animal for this time of year is the March hare and with good reason. March winds bring in new light and a time of growth and longer days. The reflection of our state of mind outward can be surprisingly powerful. We awaken in memory from winters light’s out sleep to a tangled growth dance in the hall and beyond. Balancing blood sugar for longer periods of time is the grounding key to a balanced energy, also known as mood. Many times the reason for stress is this fluctuation of levels in the blood and your energies. The first to contend with is your eating and the next thing to contend with is your time spent outside. Spring is ruled by the wood element, liver and gall bladder in reference to the body’s filtration system. Indulge in fresh produce and lots of good liquids. This time of year most people feel sluggish so spring tonics that cleans and restore are important.
“Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind’ it is a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.”
Let go of winter and flow with the winds to come. Reality comes from our sense of emotions and how you feel at a certain time, memory, and has to do with how you will perceive things. Your reality changes according to how your consciousness expands. Your reality comes out of what your consciousness is. You are an activity of the universe. You are the activity of the universe looking at itself. You are a river of cosmic time, a constant recycling of star stuff.

Impermanent flux. Where is this experience happening, in the awareness, consciousness, it is nowhere and everywhere at the same time, timeless space less its dimensionless. You die and you never leave. You go to the place to get a memory or an experience. Awareness always is, there is always some kind of consciousness going on. You belong to it, you are it. We evolve to it because we never leave. The journey is to evolve into the next step of being. Spring ascension prepare for lift off
