Spring and Body/mind/spirit

By March 3, 2011 - 10:49am

After a surprising burst of snow on the weekend (here in Cordes Lakes, AZ it was a bit startling!) the sun is back and definitely the feel of warmth is in the air. I find that I am out in the garden, the sun on my legs and shoulders. I also seem to be eating better, (love those salads) more aware of what goes into my body as its physical appearance is now not swathed in sweaters and jeans!

I also notice that I feel more hopeful, new ideas are germinating in a concrete form, the challenges are less heavy. The financial piece seeming to be solvable after all.

Like bears and some plants we need the time of hibernation and inner time before we burst forth into the spring. Active, engaged in the world, a time to do and to produce.

Warning to self- remember the value of the quiet times: at the fireplace staring into the flames, the hands in thick gloves, and cut of the icy wind on my face...

So I am glad that I have writing and art, glad that I ride my horse over the land traveling slowly because of the rocks and ravines. Those slower more internal activities will balance the outward expenditure of energy and connection with new work in theatre, the impending wedding, the family coming etc.

Balance the Trio - nurture the inner and bring forth to the outer. Welcome to Spring!

Hi Kate!

I so agree that Spring rejuvenates us as well as nature! But then again, we are nature too.

We're not seeing Spring yet at all, still snow covered with gray skies and general miserable weather. But with DST coming at the weekend, the evenings will be longer which is fantastic for those of us who endure 5 months of winter.

I have dealt with Seasonal Depressive Disorder for many years and it will lift once April comes to an end. I look forward to it like others look forward to their wedding day!

Love your post, it actually lifted my spirits!

Who we are and how we Be in the world, has a direct impact on how we handle our health and wellness issues. Any real experience of our health encompasses the trilogy - the physical aspects, how we think about it, and that intangible 'other' that gives us grace and gets us through. This applies to mental and physical health equally. if we can cultivate our spiritual aspect of the triad, it will be there when we most need it, as we face our own aging and illness as well as when assisting others. This group is here to share resources and avenues to connecting the three, most particularly to embracing and articulating our personal appreciation of Spirit. This group does not advocate for any particular brand of spiritual practice or religion. Simply by sharing your stories, pointing us toward books, articles, poems, art, workshops, or other expressions of Spirit and health you will contribute to each individual's personal journey.
