It’s March and if you’re anything like me, you’re hoping the old saying, “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb,” will be true this year.
Although the focus for this Spring season will be the same as every Spring season – renewal and rebirth – we’ll be required to bring forth a new way of being by boldly taking an honest assessment of ourselves and stripping away what is no longer viable to us and our aspirations for the future.
So, as we prepare to welcome the Lamb of Spring weather into our lives, we must ask ourselves what and who we want and need in our lives as well as what and who we don’t need. Since this is a ‘7’ Universal year-the year of finding and following our own truth-this is not only a request from the Universe, it’s a requirement. Let us be inspired by Paulo Coelho’s advice: “Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.”
Although the task of closing those now useless doors may seem daunting, we’re not alone in performing it; the Universe is committed to helping us by creating situations that bring us face-to-face with our strength and power. All we have to do is acknowledge and accept it. As we do so, help and other wonderful surprises will come from the most unexpected people and places.
Lots of Joy,
