Have you been touched by frost?

Late autumn frosts come with lace edged beauty, cruelly cutting down grasses and wildflowers, insects, tender life forms. But frost cannot destroy those living perennial roots deep underground that sleep in their dark bed of soil.

If you have lived more than a few decades on this planet, you have known the icy fingers of frost. You have experienced the tender green shoots of life frozen by loss, hurt, trauma, betrayal…

When you fear all is lost after a freeze, life springs again from your roots, sending green shoots and leaves toward the light.  New life and growth and inspiration gives you new energy, new hope and courage to reclaim your power.

If your heart still beats in your chest, your roots can gather strength and you will live fully once again.

Dear one, you must have patience and allow the season of winter its full due. Take heart. Winter is a season of life, a part of each soul’s journey no matter where you live.

If you’ve been touched by frost, let yourself rest, conserve energy, let your roots gather nourishment and strength . Come spring you will feel and know the new growth within you, unfolding, reaching toward the light, inspiring you to live fully!

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.
