Spring Equinox

I don’t know about you but I am really happy March is here and especially Spring Equinox, March 20. This is a sacred time of balance, growth, and rebirth. The hours of light and dark are equal, and although the early winds of spring still have a chill to them, the signs of rebirth and renewal abound. The increase in sunlight tells us to come out of our dens and open ourselves to the stirrings of springtime’s beauty.
It is wonderful in the morning when I go out to feed the horse and pony it is light out and I can hear the songbirds. The daffodils are up a couple of inches. Two weeks ago I noticed the first robins were here. Last weekend Canada Geese were flying overhead. A real joy to watch and hear.
My most favorite event in March is the return of the humming birds, strange but true they show up on the third Sunday of the month usually in time for supper. I have learned to set up the feeder that afternoon. When they arrive I know spring is officially here. I marvel at the miracle of these tiny feisty birds making the long trip up from Mexico to spend spring and summer here on the West coast . They celebrate life and spirit. I hang the feeder outside my kitchen window and rejoice in watching and hearing their daily routine.
Spring is my favorite season of the year. How can one not believe in a divine spirit and creator when watching renewed life? Everyday there is a new transformation, so take this opportunity to allow your spirit to grow and open your heart to love in all of its positive forms. Release what you no longer need. If you only have anger, sadness or other negative emotions in your heart there is no room for love. Visualize your heart chakra opening up and blooming like a flower.

Affirmation: I celebrate life with renewed joy. I welcome love into my life. I am grateful for all the beauty of nature and the cycle of life.
