“Someday, you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again” – C.S. Lewis
The Spring Equinox offers the key to a round doorway expanding toward all that wants to be new, everything that is working
to come up out of the muddy ground in order to soak up the sun by day, and the starry night sky in the evening.
Each year; the Vernal Equinox is usually around March 20th. On this day, the calendar year splits; and we have 12 hours of equal darkness and light. The combining of the Yin Yang, white and black into One present moment.
As you know as a mindfulness practitioner, in the present moments outside of the past and future musings of the mind; all is One and we have the opportunity to create and begin anything anew.
This mindful journey will take us on a magical visualization walk; to plant seeds for the bountiful spring season to come.
This week we pause and take some time to plant seeds for the months to come. As the days slowly shed their frigid temperatures there is so much to look forward to as we prepare well, in order to begin again.
Joanna Van Der Hoeven wrote,
“I Stand in the threshold, in the liminal world between time and space.
I stand upon the knife’s edge;
I stand upon the turning point in this liminal place.
I honor the balance of day and night, of dark and light;
Equal day, equal night."
Seed To Sky
Leaning spine to trunk.
our cave to grow the animal
of our hearts
transformations of color
as we wisely let go
We drink in the rain
and share a cup
with the first
The only aspiration
we have is to
sculpt the clouds
into infinite sky
For the Photographers who walk mindfully; This week keep an eye out for any early signs of spring. This could be flowers at the market, or flowers in your garden. Green sprouts and grasses in the woods, as well as any birds who will be starting to build their nests. Consider it a photo assignment so that you keep an open view for images all week for anything that relates to early spring.
You may find use with the Mantra anchor this week:
Haola (Pronounced How-la)
It means “All is well and getting better.” Breathing in How Breathing out La.
A Journaling Prompt for any willing writers:
If you were to plant your dream garden what would you include?
Expanding this opportunity to plant seeds, what seeds fill your canvas bag
for the rest of the year? Gardening and otherwise.
