It is a time of Spring blossoming, seasons changing, miracles rising, and radical faith. At the same time, many of us have experienced stormy, torrential rain, snow and winds that have disrupted our flow and made us ask, “When is the rain going to stop and when will the sun come out again?”. Regardless of how you see it, it is definitely an opportunity for growth and transformation. And what we know is that things cannot grow unless there is sufficient water and nourishment. And as I look around, there are flowers with colors that we haven’t seen in a long, long time because the seeds for those colors were buried deep in the soil… only able to come out when persistent nourishment was given. But just as the beautiful flowers grew, the weeds sprung up as well.
The lesson here is that life comes in this duality. You cannot have day without night, light without darkness, blossoms without weeds, and blessings without struggles. So, the questions are, “What do you water and nourish, and what do you need to weed out of your life?”. If you don’t make room for the blessings to grow, they will be suffocated by the toxic habits, burdens, and unnourishing ways. And those miraculous dreams that are just waiting to be fulfilled will never reach the surface.
I know it can seem overwhelming, but it starts with you knowing: You are a blessing to the universe and you have a sacred purpose that is waiting to be fulfilled.
Don’t let the storms discourage you because the prayers of your ancestors will keep you afloat. But you must do your part… one breath, one blessing, one affirmation at a time. And don’t forget to walk where, and with whom, you feel blessed and loved. Then pass it forward because this is not only for you. The children are watching, and your actions can break generational cycles of pain, and water circles of love, trust, dignity and respect.
