Flowing with the cycles of the seasons

 

Spring

Plant your dream

The magic of Spring brings forth new growth, sprouts and light. The earth mother awakens and stirs and rises from her deep sleep of winter. The energy burst forth from her deep belly and gives energy to her children to be reborn. When we flow with the medicine wheel in circular fashion the sun rises in the east as well as the spring giving rise to new beginnings. During this time we can sprout our dream seeds, work on our dreams, ignite our creative flame and nurture it. It is a time of new beginnings. Spring is time to rejuvenate, nurture ourselves and be reborn into our authentic selves.

The growing light gives rise to shine our light into the world.

Blossom into your potential

The magic of Summer brings forth blossoming energy of light, beauty and abundance. The energy of the earth mother is extrovert, spreading joy, colors and vitality through and to her children. It is a time of peak vitality and energy with the sun at its highest spot bringing light and heat awakening all our senses. In the medicine wheel the summer is in the south direction giving rise to innocence and trust. Here is a perfect time to find the power of now, and work with the energy of nature and the elements through meditation, dance and earth connection. Its a perfect time to dive into our creative potentials as our inner fires rises up.

We are ready to be powerful as we stand strong in our own light, ready to be seen as who we are.

 

Autumn

Harvest and release

The magic of Autumn brings forth the in breath and out breath of life, the flow of give and receive. We receive the gift of harvest, what we have sown is given to us. At the same time what is ready to be released is given away. The old has given its gifts of beauty and the cycle continues, the leaves fall away. It has served its purpose. Everything must go through its cycle of transformation, it is the natural law and that gives balance to earth mother and her children. In the  medicine wheel we look to the west, towards the setting sun, the death of the old and towards the transformation and our emotions. It gives rise to our intuition and our dreamtime. Autumn is good time to look at our outdated beliefs that have hindered our growth and release them as well as everything that is not serving our highest good. It is a good time to find our balance in body, mind and spirit and while releasing also receive the gifts and acknowledge what is working well in our lives. It is a time of de-tox, cleansing, self-knowledge and appreciation.

We are ready to shed the old to embrace our newfound strength.

 

Winter

Self-Reflect and embrace who you are

The magic of Winter brings forth self-discovery and insight. It is the time when earth mother retreats her energies into her inner core, while her children rest and relax into the womb. Winter is perfect time for reflection and deepening. In the medicine wheel it is the direction of the North that gifts us with insight and wisdom, the cycle has run its course ready to spiral up in a newfound wisdom from its previous growth period. It is a time when the shadow is deep and the darkness of the womb and cosmos is obvious. Therefore springs forth all creation, from darkness into the light. We can assess our inner wisdom, look deep into our shadow and be defined by the light like a star. It is a path of strength and courage and if we are willing to look within ourselves with honesty and humility there will be a great benefit, a quickening and a deepening on our spiritual path. When we can truly self-reflect we will notice that we too are part of the beauty of the Northern-Lights and the stars high above.

We are star among the stars, shining brightly in the darkest of hours.

Great Spirit-Follow your heart

Father Sky
Father Sky

I am in awe how Spirit moves through my life, always giving me guidance and inspiration. I am in awe how it has helped my busy mind to settle and quiet down like a still pond. All I needed to do was to ask for help, and guidance, and it was granted. Ask and it is given. These words are true!

I have been experiencing true adventure last weeks when I left my normal routine of daily life, taking a time off both in the country side and then holding a spiritual retreat into the highlands of Iceland with my dear soul-sisters. I have felt the recurrent feeling of surrender, let go and everything will be taken care of. I can prepare and do but then I have to let Spirit to do the rest. We don´t have to struggle so much, we have to begin to trust more.

I have listened to this guidance and when I do, I feel I can soar above like an eagle and take flight to Father Sky where I can look from above over the little problems in life and there it feels so small and insignificant.  Having the overview of an eagle I see the big picture and I can just let go. Sometimes little tiny spots grows into big worries in our mind. It is in our mind that the illusion begins. When we tune into our hearts and souls there is expansion and always a way. Here I am in perfect trust and everything begins to feel magical and everything I do starts to move in a perfect flow.

Trust is listening to our hearts and tuning into Spirit. There we can let it be and let it unfold. We don´t have to figure everything out ourselves, let Spirit take care of the rest. If you feel the urge to move ahead with new idea, go for it! You feel when it comes from the heart. We have to trust our hearts, it is our connection to Spirit. We have to have the courage to listen!

I love this quote from Osho

“The way of the heart is the way of courage. It is to live in insecurity; it is to live in love, and trust; it is to move in the unknown. It is leaving the past and allowing the future to be. Courage is to move on dangerous paths. Life is dangerous, and only cowards can avoid the danger but then, they are already dead. A person who is alive, really alive, vitally alive, will always move into the unknown. There is danger there, but he will take the risk. The heart is always ready to take the risk, the heart is a gambler. The head is businessman. The head always calculates, it is cunning. The heart is non calculating.”

So lets listen to our hearts and Trust because Spirit is always working through it and guiding us although the mind gets scared. Life is an adventure and let’s make it so.

Much love
