7 WAYS TO ENSURE YOU TRANSFORM WITH SPRING

7 WAYS TO ENSURE YOU TRANSFORM WITH SPRING

Spring’s rigorous and spirited energy has certainly begun its dance. We are talking about the ‘major’ uplifting energy needed to crack a seed and bloom it into a budding plant. It is time for growth and expansion. Change is happening right now, in a big way. 

It would be an amazing experiment to witness the changes Spring's energy creates every day. For instance, if you were to scoop up some soil from the ground today, and then each day until say May 21, it would be remarkable to observe the it metamorphoses from contracted, dense, dry, and brittle earth into moist, malleable, fragrant dirt; pulsating with insects and juicy vegetation of all kinds.

Welcome Change & Learn to Trust the Flow

Welcome Change & Learn to Trust the Flow

Change, self-initiated or not, moves us through a transition zone which creates a sense of groundlessness. The scary in-between state of letting to go of what we’ve always known and/or done to allow for something new (a new habit, pattern, way of thinking or acting) to emerge. It’s like being in flight between trapeze bars. It takes skill, dedication, and courage to relax and trust into this groundless state.

CREATE SPACE FOR CHANGE: THE LIFE CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP

CREATE SPACE FOR CHANGE: THE LIFE CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP

In Clutter's Last Stand, Aslett states, "Getting the clutter out of your life can and will rid you of more discouragement, tiredness, and boredom than anything else you can do." 

Ask yourself how many things you are holding onto just in case you need them. Make a plan to go through your whole house slowly (maybe one room a week). Don't look upon the cleaning as a chore but as a chance to let "the new" into your life. Get rid of things that are no longer of use such as pens out of ink, expired medicine, outdated foods, old perfume or makeup, clothes that might fit someday. Remember, just because you bought it once doesn't mean you have to keep it forever.

WILLIAM 101: CHOOSING CHANGE

WILLIAM 101: CHOOSING CHANGE

This September, my 11 year old son William began 6th grade at the small progressive school he called his 'home away from home.' He has been a student there since 4 years old, when he began Pre-K. He often, adamantly, proudly, proclaimed he would be one of the few who could call himself a 'lifer' at this school. He only had three more years to go to graduate the 8th grade.

However, within a couple of weeks after starting 6th grade, he began to question if it was still the right place for him. Actually, as his parents, we questioned his continuation at this school for a couple of years prior, but William's attachment and passion for his school quieted our own questioning.
