It’s that time of year again when the days get brighter, warmer and longer – when the daffodils and bluebells are having a ball and the birds seem to chirp even sweeter than ever. It’s Spring and every single being from the tiniest of ants to the biggest of man know and feel it’s here – AT LONG LAST. Where the winter was a time where we drew in and down. Where we contemplated the year gone by and stored energy by still-ing our body and mind. For many of us, it’s time for a Spring clean.
We are now embarking on a new and completely different kind of journey as there is now an upward and outward pull towards a brighter future full of sunshine and vibrant energy. But before we can fly we must learn how to walk. We must prepare the foundation for the next ahead. We must create space… This is what doing a Spring Clean is all about.
Just as we’ve been doing since ancient times we clean our houses, dust the cobwebs away and let the light shine in. We throw out the old flowers and bring new ones back from the forest or garden. We may even go through our wardrobes and go out and buy some new clothes which reminds us that summer and GOOD things are coming our way. But how about our bodies and minds? Don’t they also deserve a little TLC? The best way to get ready for a new season which essentially symbolises new beginnings is to take some time by yourself and allow yourself to Spring clean. Simply sit down and honour what took place for you during the winter.
Below are 3 steps to follow for a powerful, nourishing ritual:
1. Write down a list of anything you would like to let go of.
2. Write down another list of everything you feel grateful for.
3. Finally, write down what you would like to bring in.
Now take list number 1 with you outdoors and announce loudly and proudly, “I NOW RELEASE MY PAST”, then either tear it apart with your hands or simply set fire to it (cautiously of course). As the old disperses into ashes, feel yourself feeling lighter and more spacious as you have consciously released what is no longer serving you.
Then pick up list number 2 and confidently announce, “I ATTRACT ONLY POSITIVE PEOPLE PLACES AND SPACES AND THIS IS MY TESTAMENT”, then continue to slowly read out loud everything you feel grateful for, feeling and sensing what this does to your inner self as you do so. Feel free to hang this on your wall to remind yourself of your own power to create your desired reality.
Finally take list number 3 and place it onto your heart. Close your eyes and really allow all these new energies to sink in. Feel that every single thing you wrote down here is already inside of you like little seeds starting to sprout and grow. Blossoming inside of you. Take a deep breathe in holding your intention for your Spring chapter and as you exhale feel your wishes flying out in all directions carried by the winds to each and every corner of the world. Bringing you back what you need the most.
After this you can either “plant” the list into the fresh soil, visualising yourself planting your intentions into mother earth, “I NOW PLANT THE SEED OF…. (your 1st ,2nd etc wish)” or you can place it underneath your bed cushion. Relaxing into the comfort of knowing that you have set the tune for the spring ahead and that every night and day the universe is working to bring into your life what you asked for.
Whether you follow my suggestions or create your own completely unique Spring Clean rituals make sure you do something. Even just 15 mins is enough! What matters is that YOU decide to take ACTION! Remember that in the end the only one that truly knows what is right for you is YOU. YOU are the only one that can make YOU happy!
