No matter how many spring times I have experienced I am always delighted and amazed at how quickly things pop out of the ground and are born anew. In Ohio where I live spring has definitely sprung, painting everything in lively fresh greens, pinks, and yellows. The birds have transformed as well showing off their best colors and songs. EVERYTHING is bursting out. For example this past Sunday, while on a 2 hour hike at the arboretum I saw 1 red fox, 3 turtles, a frog, a snake, a white swan, 2 loons, numerous other animals/birds, and lots of gorgeous wildflowers, such as trillium and spring beauties.
In the Feng Shui I practice and teach about (Medicine Wheel Feng Shui ™and Instinctive Feng Shui®) we observe the seasons attentively. Then we mirror these cycles in our environment and in our human aspects (mind, heart, spirit, and body) as well. Springtime then becomes the perfect time to begin new projects, adventures, relationships, and more. It is also a great time to freshen up your business, clothes, home, etc. Add a new photo to your website. Wear colorful clothes. Plant seeds. Open up the spaces in your home, inviting plenty of the Air element indoors. These types of things can energize you and bring a new perspective to your life. So embrace the new springtime beginnings outdoors but also in all aspects of your life.
Note: Conversely, for my friends in the Southern Hemisphere you will be: calming things down, cozying up the home-front (more Fire element), and drawing your energy inward.
