The world is coming alive all around us. It’s a bit late this year, and we are certainly ready for the beauty that the May flowers have to offer us. Growth is all around us; the grass is greener, the trees have buds, the Forsythias are blooming, and flowers pushing up through the ground to greet us. It’s here. Mother Earth is beginning her bloom.
Last month we cleaned out our Spiritual, Emotional, Mental and Physical closets to make room for new vibrant Energies. We can take lesson from Mother Earth at this time, and think about what we want to nurture and cultivate in our lives. What do we truly want to manifest in our lives at this time? What will you grow? Take some time to think about the kind of world you want to create around you. How will your inner garden grow? What kinds of things will you say, do, and feel to help nurture and develop the world of love and beauty you want to live in? Imagine it. Grow it. Live it. You know you can do it.
One of the most noticeable issues that surfaces in my classes, workshops and seminars is how busy people are, and how challenging it can be to take the time for Spiritual Self-Care.
Many of us know what we need to keep ourselves balanced on all four aspects. However, we get overwhelmed by the demands the outside world has on us, and then we feel we don’t have the time we need to do our Spiritual work. In truth, we do have the time – we just don’t make ourselves a priority. We don’t prioritize our daily Spiritual Self-Care the same way we prioritize grocery shopping, bill paying, (paid) work, cleaning, child care and so forth. We don’t allow ourselves to fully bloom. Why aren’t you taking (at least) ten minutes for your daily meditation? What’s stopping you from going in your backyard for five minutes to ground yourself? Why is it difficult for you to snatch two minutes for yourself and converse with your Spirit Helpers and Angels? Why are you holding yourself back?
I want to tell you – and assure you – that you are worth the time, and that your Spiritual needs are a priority – just as much as the other hundred things you do in a day. You have value. You are deserving. This May, I encourage you to Allow Yourself to Bloom – convince yourself that you can take time for yourself, even if it’s within the cracks and crevices of a busy day. Give yourself permission for self care. Nurture your inner needs, and cultivate your Spiritual garden. YOU are worth it.
Happy Spiritual Gardening!
