Lessons from the Spring Equinox

March 20 is The Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere. It is a time for new beginnings. How can this be applied to your life? It’s a time to begin something new, whether it is a new project, a new relationship or a new way of being.

The natural cycle of the seasons also presents a valuable lesson. Every season has its time and place. You can’t rush the seasons; you must live through one to get to the next. We also tend to appreciate the seasons when we experience contrast. If you’ve been dealing with snow week after week, won’t it feel good to turn your face to the sun?

So often when we begin something new, we expect immediate results and we give up when those results don’t seem to come to fruition. What would happen if the Spring gave up on calling forth flowers by the first day of April? What would happen if Summer decided it would throw in the towel after only a month?

  • As you embrace something new this Spring, commit to giving it a season to come to fruition. Don’t judge it, and don’t stop it. Continue to move forward toward a goal for three months and see what happens when you get to your end point.
  • Also, give the seeds you plant time and room to grow. Just as plants do some of their growing underground, many of the changes in our lives are happening beneath the surface where we are unable to see the physical manifestation yet. But that doesn’t mean nothing is happening. On the contrary, everything is happening. Know that your seeds are growing and your manifestation will outwardly appear just as that flower will one day break through the dirt.
  • Enjoy the present moment but allow it to pass to the next. We know Spring won’t last forever, but we can enjoy it while it’s here. But we don’t want to cling to it; rather we will accept when Spring has given way to Summer and enjoy the blessings of the next season. Your creations today will grow and change. Allow them to take on a life of their own and be open to what they will add to your life over time.
