Long winter’s nap

Take a tip from the animal community and hibernate a little while – otherwise known as taking a long winter’s nap…

Also the society of deciduous trees recommends that you go dormant awhile. Let go of excess baggage & rest during the dark and cold months when you feel the need.

Can you let go of racing thoughts, to-do lists and rest when your body signals the need? Can you let your awareness dissolve into dreamspace for a time and renew, repair, and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit with high quality sleep?

Does your brain command you to do, do, do and give you no time for rest or relaxation? A revving engine in a rusted, broken, worn out body will get you nowhere!

So, take good care of your body! Take it in for regular maintenance! Sleep, wholesome food, movement, fresh air, relaxation! This is your soul’s vehicle on earth. Surrender to its needs, pay attention to its rhythms and messages.

The wisdom of your body is subtle. Pay attention and come into balance, body, mind and spirit.

New beginnings

The planet tilts, the sun returns, winter will merge into spring once again in its own sweet time.

Under the frozen ground life takes a nap, hibernates, gathering energy, living off last year’s fat.

You too need times of rest, time to go underground, to let go and recharge your life force.

You who live in warm weather all year, remember to take time to give yourself the luxury of a little “winter” retreat.

Just rest a bit from your endless pushing and striving and wanting and buying and doing. Recharge and renew yourselves, body, mind, spirit, emotions.

Rise up into the strengthening light with new energy and passion and inspiration to greet the life giving sun.  Give yourself the gift of a new beginning.
