Like the seasons of Mother Earth, our soul too has seasons of change; rebirth, shining moments, letting go, reflection, and a gathering of strength, courage, and knowledge to begin the cycle over again. The journey in which you travel has many rebirths for the knowledge you gain along the way shows when you need to make a shift. These shifts are like season for the souls journey.
In the winter, Mother Earth retreats within her shell, gathering strength for the coming seasons, reconnecting with the universe, nourishing her soul while she rests and rejuvenate the pulse of her existence. Your body, your soul, needs this same season. You need time to go within yourself, reconnecting with your soul, your higher power, or your own spirit. This is what breathes life back into your spirit, gives you the energy you thought you had lost, and the strength to carry on when chaos swarms around you.
In the spring, Mother Earth produces new seedlings. It is a rebirth. The strength gathered from the winter produces new life. This season for the soul is the birth of new ideas. A new shift in consciousness arises from the knowledge gained in the earlier seasons. It’s a time to use the strength gained in the last season to begin new. Embrace the change. You’ve shed the old to make room for the new. There’s only one way to go and that’s forward.
In the summer, the new seedlings are in full bloom. The beauty shines for all to enjoy. This is your souls time to shine too. Your journey is in full bloom. There’s no stopping you. Find gratitude, giving thanks where it is due and don’t forget to celebrate you and all you’ve accomplished! Dance and be free.
In the fall, the leaves on the trees have one last show for us all. They stand tall with their magnificent colors giving us one last peek at their beauty before they fall from the trees landing softly on the soil. The lay there through the winter months feeding Mother Earth, nourishing her soul and providing energy for the coming seasons. Their beauty may be gone from the trees but their essence play an important role in the new birth. They have done their job and now, they give to the new life that is being formed, for you see, each season is linked to the other. Without one, there cannot be another. The same is true for our souls journey. There are many seasons. Some may see the seasons as paths. Some may see paths within the seasons and some may see the seasons as stepping-stones. No matter how you see it, know there are many changes, many shifts of consciousness we take in our short time here. The fall represents a time for reflection, a time to allow the seeds we’ve been nourishing to end their time with us and fall gently to our soul as it provides nourishment for the next part of our journey. Instead of thinking of it as an ending, think of it as a bridge to the next path because without the journey we just finished we would never had made it to the journey that awaits us.
As we wander our way through our lives, it’s important to know the season you are in and honor the season for the value it holds for you. Each season of our life, is there for a reason. Each season, holds many gifts. Open your eyes and hearts to the beauty before you embracing the change, moving with the change for it is your friend, it is your soul telling you its time to move from one season to the next. Take time to see the reflections each season brings. See yourself, learn from what you’ve experienced, and move forward from there. Your reflection will show you where you’ve been. The wind will carry you to where you need to go; your next season. Follow the wind beneath your wings and fly. ♥sKr♥
