As there is an airborne illness creeping it’s way around the world, there’s also a change coming about. There are also babies being born, accomplishments being made and ultimately, life to live. Here in the states, we have the blessing of entering into a new season: Spring. Spring is a time to newness. It is a time for us to focus on what we’d like to grow. Would we like to grow in fear or grow in peace? The Creator of all things has given us the ability to choose. Let’s make that choice wisely…
Choosing to grow in peace could look a little something like this: Establishing a morning practice of prayer, meditation and gratitude, journaling to set the tone for your day. These practices connect you to The Creator of all things and align you with similar universal energy. We could pray and meditate for peace, protection and healing. We count our blessings from the clothes on our backs to the food on our tables. We journal to get clear on what’s going through our minds so that we can process it with our hearts.
The Spring is a wonderful time to “awaken” our physical bodies from the season of winter and give our organs some rejuvenation! Doing an internal cleanse and resetting your diet with fresh fruits and vegetables allows you to heal from the inside out. Be sure to consult your doctor before starting any new supplement regimen. Our bodies use the food we eat as fuel. Being mindful about what the fuel is, helps us to maintain physical peace when we need it most. Not to mention the benefits of boosting our immune systems to be strong against Covid-19 and any other virus out there.
As we embark upon a journey of peace during a time of panic, it is important to remember that there will be times where you may feel the emotions of the world and need to process that as well. After all, we are all connected and thrive in community. Check in with yourself daily on a mental, emotional, spiritual and physical level and ask “What do I need today?” It may seem strange at first but asking this question and sitting quietly to receive the answer opens you to caring for yourself in a holistic manner. And don’t hesitate to act on what comes up and give that to yourself. You deserve it! If we can get our entire family onboard with cultivating peace - Mind, Body and Spirit - I believe we could see a beautiful and much needed shift in our health and the health of those around us.
