    Spring Emergence

    September 7, 2020

    “The only difference between an extraordinary life and an ordinary life is the extraordinary pleasures you find in ordinary things” –  Veronique Vienne

    This winter in the South Hemisphere has been a long one, for all of us. Are you feeling exhausted from the stress of uncertainty and being cooped up inside for months. I’m not sure that we have ever been more ready for newness and sunshine than we are right now. Spring has the energy of new beginnings, having reflected on our previous cycle in the colder months. It is a time for cleansing and clearing, a brand new start.  Are you feeling an urge to get things moving again? Start slowly, try this:

    Shift those toxins – spending less time being active in the colder months builds up toxins in our bodies – especially our liver.  To aid the detox process, start the day with 2 glasses of warm water with lemon juice first thing in the morning. For an added boost, continue on with fresh carrot, celery & parsley juice to hydrate your system and cleanse the blood.

    Simplify your surroundings – unnecessary clutter and unfinished business weighs us down – quite literally.  Did you realise that an incomplete task on your to-do list continues to drain your energy until the loop is completed (or you take it off your list)? Using this Spring energy to complete tasks and cleanse your body and space will help to bring focus and energy back, and fast! Shift on any unwanted items from your wardrobe, kitchen, home office, garage or wherever your clutter is hiding.  Get enthused about crossing things of that long term to-do list!

    Let go of emotional clutter – clear up any relationship tensions and start afresh.  Lighten up by letting go of any unwanted thoughts or feelings that may be holding you back. Try burning the cleansing essential oil, Clove Bud*.

    * Clove Bud essential oil helps loosen your attachment to material things and to your ideas about how life is or should be lived.  Burning clove essential oils in your space can support you in clearing out your clutter and creating the space for new experiences in your life, with ease and grace.

    Take action – use the extra Spring energy to start on that wishlist of plans and dreams… join the local tennis club, start that art project or book an exciting travel adventure in your favourite part of Australia!  Whatever it is that you’ve been planning to do, Spring is the time to start doing!
