Celebrate the changing seasons on your earth, and even more so, the changing seasons of your lives. You were born to go through cycles of birth, death, and dormancy, time and again.
Some of your cycles are brief. You are born into life anew with each day. You die unto your waking lives at night when you go to sleep, renew your spirit and body, and then you are birthed anew once again.
Some of your cycles are much longer. You begin a job or a relationship. You move into a house. Then at some point in the future you leave, change, or move, dying once again to an old life and readying for the rebirth.
Nature knows these cycles well. Trees blossom, grow, bear fruit in fall, and lay dormant before the cycles repeat. Animals give birth, build homes, gather food, then slow down or even hibernate before the cycles begin anew. Seasons change. You never intended to remain stagnant when you came to this earth. You intended to grow.
It seems that human beings are much more comfortable with “birth” than “death” or “dormancy.” Birth can means starting a new project, entering a new relationship, entertaining a new idea, buying a house, changing your style, or any of a million other things that bring something new into your mind, heart, soul, or life. Birth is exciting and filled with promise.
Death is letting go – of a pattern, an ideology, a relationship, a thing, a situation – any time you must give up something you once created in your life you go through a “little death,'” even if only a “death of the ego.” For many of you, life’s little deaths can be difficult. Letting go of what once served you but no longer does is often a challenge. In truth, it can be freeing and exciting. When you break a glass, you get to buy a new one. When you leave a job you can be open to better. When you let go of an old upset, you are happier. All of life’s little deaths offer the promise of more. You are an expanding soul!
Dormancy is the period of time where you wait and integrate. You regroup; clean your closets – mental or physical. You take stock of where you’ve been and more importantly decide where you want to go. Dormancy is an important step in creating your next birth. You need never feel guilty about your periods of rest. Taking the down time necessary to fully prepare for a new birth is encouraged. Spring comes after winter, dear ones. You will require the “little winters” in life in order to more fully enjoy your springs.
Allow yourself to enjoy whatever season you find yourself in right now.Birth is exciting. Death offers the promise of new life. Dormancy is a time to learn from the past and incubate new directions.
Just as your physical seasons are all required for the full blossoming of life, all your human seasons are necessary in the eternal cycles of life. Embrace them. Enjoy each one, knowing the next is always soon to follow.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
