Welcome Spring!


Spring Equinox and A Super Full Moon in the same day – what an awesome way to welcome in Spring!

Equinox signifies a balance or the “equal” part of night (or almost equal) to the day. The combination of this day along with the Full Moon is perfect timing to balance, realign, release and renew!!!

Take this opportunity to review any growth within yourself from the beginning of this year. Breathe and forgive yourself for any areas in your life you could have handled differently and start anew.

Weather permitting, my plans for the day include walking on dirt path to enjoy the spring blooms and taking advantage of the supreme timing with planting some seeds today. Along with the physical seeds we will also be planting seeds of intention for our continued growth through this year.

If a walk on a dirt path of planting seeds isn’t something that sparks your interest – just take a moment during the next couple of days to acknowledge and let go of energy that no longer serves you. This is a time to grow, heal and feel. Go big and be bold with your intentions. Happy Equinox and enjoy the Full Moon energies.

Breathe and Enjoy

Day 13 & 14 of “Mindful March”
from https://www.actionforhappiness.org/

I’m catching up today from yesterday’s #MindfulMarch and combining it with today’s – because some days are like that.

Day 13 – Stop Breathe and just notice. Repeat regularly throughout the day.

Day 14 – Enjoy doing chores or task more mindfully today.

As I write this post, I am on my second batch of laundry, cleaned the bathrooms and cleaned up the kitchen after breakfast. I have to say, I am thankful for all of it.

The laundry, the dirty potty’s and showers, the dishes, cleaning the stove top. I am so blessed. Blessed to have food to cook and yes all of my humans to take care of.

In between the cleaning and cooking, I was still able to take some time light my sage, breathe deeply and enjoy it. Find beauty in the moment, not matter what it consists of.

Feel it!

Day 12 of “Mindful March”
from https://www.actionforhappiness.org/

Today was such a beautiful day. It was filled with moments of clouds blanketing the skies, soft rain and moments of down pours. After all of this weather today, Just before sunset, I was able to stand still for a moment and indulge in the coolness of the sky right before sunset.

Whenever you can, just take a moment in your day, just feel it. Feel the cool of a breeze or the warmth of the sun on your face.

Before you Reply


Day 11 of “Mindful March”
from https://www.actionforhappiness.org/

When someone is speaking, take a full breath before you reply.

Have you ever had a conversation with someone where you can clearly see that that have already formed their reply before you’re done with your sentence?

Be mindful. Let them speak, take a full breath prior to forming your reply. It makes a huge difference in the overall conversation and the vibration that conversation carries.

Listen to a Piece of Music

Day 9 of “Mindful March”

from https://www.actionforhappiness.org/

Without doing anything else, sit back, close your eyes and “Listen to a piece of music“.

I’ve attached a song by James Hood entitled Tapestry. This song has so many rhythmic textures and layers, sit back and enjoy these next 4 minutes.

That’s it, today’s assignment is just to listen.

 

“James Hood is renowned as a vital and versatile musical pioneer. His lengthy and varied musical resume includes playing drums in The Pretenders, an ongoing two-decades-plus run as mastermind of the visionary ambient/electronica act Moodswings and an expansive array of production and soundtrack projects.” – https://www.jameshood.com/
