Let the celebrations continue…..
Last Saturday, March 20th marked the beginning of The Spring Equinox, a time of awakening and rebirth. The dark months are now over & we’re moving into the warmth of the light. Did you feel the energy? The vibration? The excitement? Change is upon us. We get to enjoy longer, brighter and sunnier days, kicked off by changing our clocks to daylight savings time earlier in March. Flowers are starting to grow buds and bloom, grass is becoming greener and grows more quickly. Birds are singing, doves are mating, and everyone and everything is coming out to play.
Today, Sunday March 28th marks the full “Worm” moon. The name likely refers to the earthworms that appear in the soil as the weather gets warmer, inviting hungry birds to feed on them. For millennia, people across the world, including Native Americans in the eastern and central USA, named the months after nature’s cues. Other names for this month’s full moon include the crow, crust, sap, and sugar moon.
Passover, which began at sunset on March 27th and continues till nightfall on April 4th, is a springtime Jewish festival celebrating the early Israelites’ exodus from Egypt and freedom from slavery.
Next Sunday, April 4th, is Easter, a springtime Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ and freedom from sin and death. It is preceded by a series of holidays commemorating Jesus’s path to the cross.
So much to celebrate all around us and in us. I feel the excitement, the energy and the joy. Since we are all connected, I am sure you do too. Even if you are not conscious of it, it is happening. We all share in the rebirth and energizing that is happening this time of year. As we come out of our winter hibernation, we feel more positive, enlivened and optimistic. We feel freer and happier. And yes, with advances in controlling the pandemic, we all feel relieved and encouraged. However, remain mindful, respectful and please follow health and safety guidelines for yourself and for others.
So however you enjoy this special time of year, celebrate it. Savor it. Relish it. Enjoy it. Be alive. Find your joy. Be happy.
Life is worth living. You deserve to live your best life. Focus on that. Affirm that. Be that. Wake your spirit up to new ideas, new dreams and new adventures. Feel the power of the season’s energy.
Feel alive and be inspired.
With Light and Love and a Big Step Forward,
