Spring is a time of fresh starts and new beginnings.
It is a season of renewal. So, what better time to give attention to reviewing and reviving your goals, dreams and desires? Rebirth happens inherently in nature with trees and plants budding so it makes sense that we too follow the instinct to renew ourselves.
We do spring cleaning by purging old clothing, prettying up yards and cleaning out pantries. What about some mental and emotional tidying up? In the long run, detoxing our thoughts is even more impactful. Mental debris takes the form of memories, limiting beliefs, stories, traumas, and conditioning that keep us stuck in old patterns, attitudes and habits. Imagine the energy you would free up by purging those!
Taking some time to focus on your needs to discover the things that make you happy
Helps create a clear and refreshed mind. First, pause to reflect on what’s working for you and what’s not. What’s keeping you stuck? This needn’t be a long process – on the contrary, tuning in and trusting your first response is often most revealing and enormously helpful.
Once aware of the thoughts and habits you choose to let go of, you can begin your plan to purge them along with the old clothing and expired groceries. If you think cleaning out a closet feels good, try eliminating your old limiting beliefs.
This creates more space to grow and blossom than you can imagine. We know that freeing up space in your home makes you feel lighter, and creates an opportunity to bring in new things we love. Likewise, releasing outdated beliefs and patterns that have kept us stuck in fear, resentment, anger, depression, victimization and self loathing is incredibly liberating and truly life changing.
Imagine how light and energized you will feel after cleaning out your mental clutter.
What activities aid in releasing these old practices, ideas and beliefs? A good place to start is with anything that allows you to let go, relax, and tune in to your intuition. Let your mind and heart expand. You may uncover actions that are holding you back from your dreams. Pay attention to every intuitive hit.
Allow yourself to envision your wildest dreams, goals and desires. Write down whatever comes to you. Edit nothing. Focus on what your ideal life looks like. Is it a new career path, strengthening relationships, furthering education; maybe you want a totally fresh start. Are you in a place of transition where circumstances and relationships are shifting and changing? Now is the perfect time to reinvent yourself.
Stop satisfying everyone else and find new ways to present your true, authentic self to the world.
Play, laugh and do more of what makes you smile. Unload whatever is dull, heavy, or not in alignment with your soul’s true purpose. Revive your inner child and grant her the freedom to direct your days more often. Get out of your head and into your heart. You will be amazed with the joy of feeling renewed and rebirthed!
