Happy Spring… What a beautiful day it is and, once I finish writing this for the Better Life Blog, I am not going to miss being outside and enjoying Spring.
Behind our house is an abundance of flora and fauna. There is so much to see that in every moment I see something new and exciting. Every day I have the same or pretty close to it at least, routine. I greet the day with appreciation of me (I know that may sound silly, but really, it is true), meditate and then move on to having a cup of tea, breakfast and my daily spiritual readings. Then I get my walking shoes on and head outside. I absolutely love it, no matter the weather (unless it is really storming bad, but then again, that is what raincoats are for). Who said I had to be 6 to jump in a puddle. Really!
My roses are blooming, the trumpet vine is coating the back fence and our Star Jasmine is just itching to explode with white star flowers and a fragrance that only my allergies will cause me upset, if I let it. Yes, I have allergies. This year was a bad one. What did I do about it, dealt with it. Yep, tried a handful of natural, homeopathic remedies and found one that works. It has been my remedy for the itchy watery eyes and runny nose. I bring this up because some of us are “allergic” to something. Mine is pollen. I love the great outdoors and beauty that surrounds me when I am outside that I will put my bodies “reactions” just so I can be outside, enjoying, taking in, experiencing the beauty and energy that coats me when I am in the outside.
Appreciate Re-birth & Take Part
Springtime is when everything is blooming, or birthing. The ducklings are so cute, the little bunnies are even cuter. The flora and fauna are telling us to bloom where we have been planted, to shine our light so that others can shine theirs. The energy that I receive when outside is limitless and I want to keep that feeling and retain that energy always and then share it. Yes, energy. Everything is expanding and extending itself, reaching for more expansion, more light. We have all rested and have been hibernating these past few months, storing up, so we can go out and enjoy, have fun and expand who we are and where we are going.
For others, they might have an “allergic reaction” to food or certain people. The same thing applies. How you respond to anything, whether pollen, food or people or places, it is what you do with that “reaction” that is key. I dealt with mine with a homeopathic treatment. I also meditate and do deep breathing. This helps me to calm the mind and receive a “download” for my remedy. Some things take time. And, for those types of “allergic reactions” I give myself the attention I need to just BE. Be who I am, breathe and know that “this too shall pass”. Just as my allergic reaction to pollen will pass. For there is another season that I will bloom and grow and enjoy.
Appreciate Nature’s Beauty
Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you, even if you are still experiencing rain or even snow and darkness. Expand your heart and mind to the Sun that is always shining, just beyond those clouds. The Sun shines on us all which creates the abundance of the beauty that is before you in the blooming springtime and within you.
