Spring Equinox, Worm Moon, the beginning of Aries season the beginning of all things. And today, the day after. It’s always thedayafter any type of celebration or ceremony that really drives insight deep into my bones 💀
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s Liver time. The element of Wood awakens by nourishment of winter watersextending, outstretching. All is changing, influx, a bit unpredictable. We are full of brewing energy and hope and some kind of nervous, windy anticipation.
All of it bubbling to the surface to be released or strategically directed.
We can no longer quietly rest beneath the glistening blanket of snow, nor can we yet rejoice in the bright sun. We are in muddy, gucky limbo. Waking up.
The pressure is building within, and doesn’t yet know how to appear. If we burst forth and reveal ourselves too soon we make ourselves vulnerable to frost, to overexposure. But to resist is to let this energy stagnate and creates much disease, preventing flow and new growth
So - how to break through resistance? My go-to practice lately has been shaking. Shaking my rattles. Shaking my body. Shaking the boundaries of relationship resistance. Venting the wind, then sitting in acknowledgement of the stillness.
First we must do the work of clearing the debris of our winter introspection, and then keep bending with the changes as we tentatively and courageously stretch for the light.
Happy Spring cleaning, y’all. Those seeds are about to burst 🌱
