A good morning start with the medicine of mourning dove and crow as my natural morning alarm system. What a magical way to begin my day. Both birds have been very strong personal totems for me communicating messages to me in the areas of love, divinity, and magic for many years.
I saw this fallen tree pictured in the graphic on a hike I went on a while ago and was amazed at the resiliency and survival instincts. We can learn so much about ourselves cradled in the arms of nature.
March has sure come charging in a lion and has no slowing down in sight to exit as a lamb. You feeling this? If you live in New England, you may have certainly been feeling this.
Today marks the vernal equinox or otherwise known as the spring equinox. For some this day may seem insignificant, but for others, it marks the return to light as well as for rebirth, new beginnings, and fresh starts and has been celebrated by almost every native culture across the globe.
So TODAY, I am reminded with this message that came to me during my morning meditation.
“As I release the dead of winter, I plant heirloom seeds for the future I envision. Today, I nurture my soul.”
So I am curious, how are you using the energies of today to nurture your soul?

Happy Spring Equinox. Be sure to nurture you and the soul you ARE.
Have you been feeling all the effects astrological weather and cosmic storms? How about what many of us are labeling the “ascension flu”? What about any energetic pulls? Do things seem to be spiraling out of control or do they seem to be balancing themselves out? Are your fears, insecurities, anxieties or the like heightened and not sure why? How is your sleep?
Many of us sensitive folk have been experiencing everything from headaches, sore throats, buzzing in the ears, body aches especially in the back area, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue etc. This is not to mention the increase in anxiety, insecurities, fears, old traumas, old PTSD symptoms that you may thought have gone away. If you can relate to any of these, you are not alone. Like what I wrote in my March post, much of the energies lately are about “Lessons During The Bipolar Ping Pong Match of Emotions to Paradoxical Extremes.
It may feel like a little of Pandora’s Box has been opened… the feeling of everything caving in around you or everything finally blossoming … the yin and yang … the feeling of everything ending or everything beginning … feeling of endless possibilities or endless perils … rebirth, renewal and regeneration or death, endings and regeneration … energy surges or energy purges.
So be extra mindful of the energetic ripples you are sending out to the Universe and the ripples that are being reflected back at you. Whether good or bad, the chaotic energies right now could be exaggerating some things in your life to bring attention to unfinished business.
It is important to remember as we journey to the next phase of our life, remember what shifts you are wanting to create. This is a journey is to be taken inward right now. All the answers you seek lie within.
Things to keep in mind while you experience these shifts
Drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated and flushed.
Be mindful of your energy … actions and reactions
Get plenty of sleep. Sleep does a body good.
Stay balanced and grounded. This means you may need to step up your spiritual protections and practices such as prayer and meditation.
Journal your experiences. I am a big fan of journaling your experiences as it helps you to see what you may not have before.
Watch the ego as the ego will want to pull you back into the place you want to leave behind you and will prey upon your fears and anxieties.
Practice the art of forgiveness and start with the self. It is hard to forgive others if we first do not forgive ourselves.
Allow yourself to grieve over anything that is still unresolved. It is time to give yourself permission and stop resisting.
Learn to laugh and dance more. This raises the vibration and creates more positive changes not to mention the physiological energetic and chemical shifts within the body.
Finally, let go and trust that the Universe has your back. This is a huge test of faith.
The journey we are now faced with has a lot to do with faith. You are asked to trust and take a step into the unknown … to walk off that cliff not knowing if you will fall or walking on the next step. … to leap off that branch not knowing what to do or trusting you have the instincts to know how to fly. However, you are also being reminded to be careful of the choices you do make. Above all, remember … it is always darkest before dawn. The light always returns.
So for today, the Universe is beckoning you to do some introspection and to go deep within the shadows of the self to find the answers you seek. This is a message I have been stating all week with daily #CardOfTheDay draws which can be found on Pinterest or on my Facebook Page . Also, be kind and gentle to yourself. This is necessary if you wish to yield the results you seek.
I think Yoga says it well …
We are being given an opportunity to change our life and fully align with the Universe as long as we let go of all of the things holding us back. Biggest challenge for many of us is about learning to let go and let God knowing we are in good hands. Hence, get out of our own way.
You have a choice here. We are all given free will. The Universe has been pounding on us to get us to see, but at the end of the day, we choose our fate. What do you choose?
