SPRINGTIME: THE SEASON FOR PERSONAL REBIRTH
Hello again Dear Friends,
Why not, starting today and continuing for the next month or so, just pretend that you are a tree, the winter slumber has ended, and now it is time for your personal rebirth. Can’t we all feel the changes in our body with the longer days, increased sunshine, warmer temperatures, and an overall feeling of awakening? Now, let’s take this wonderful uplifting energy and do something with it!
Where to start? That’s easy. Write down what you want. What do want for your body? What do you want spiritually? What do you want financially? What do you want from your relationships? What do you want from Nature? Get clear at least for the moment, always knowing that everything is subject to change. Most successful journeys begin with a destination in mind. Your GPS would be worthless if you had no idea where you were headed.
The rebirthing process begins at our very core with the cells of our body. During your regular (daily I hope) meditation practices try to consciously communicate with the cells of your body. Let them know that it is ok for the old nonfunctioning cells to die off and then allow the rebirth of new vibrant cells filled with the knowledge and energy to create. This is also a great exercise for maintaining a youthful and healthy body.
Next, your thoughts and words must be in line with what you want. Do you want one thing, but thinking and saying something different? Wanting something is not enough! We all know we don’t always get what we want; however, we almost always get what we think and say. We must focus on our thoughts and words and have them be in sync with what we want!
Now make one more list. What physical actions are you going to take in order to achieve that which you want? Make the list, start taking action and stay with it, with faith in the outcome, regardless of the level of progress you may immediately see. Your personal rebirthing process has now commenced.
Oh yes, there is always a bit more to the process. How to you feel about your NOW? In order to create a “perfect future” you need to feel a “perfect now”. We all have goals, desires, and aspirations for the future, but we must be enjoying our now or we will be unable to manifest the future. We can no longer say to ourselves, “I will be happy when……….” We must be enjoying the present to be a match and in sync to what we desire in the future.
I know this can be difficult, but here are some helpful pointers. The best way I know of to “be present” and “enjoying the NOW” is to be in a place of appreciation. Perhaps it is time to make yet another list of the things you have, and for which you are appreciative. Start small like the food and clothing you possess and watch your list grow. Make reviewing this list a daily practice and the “NOW” suddenly becomes a wonderful place to be.
Another simple and fulfilling way to become present is to consciously make it a point to beforgiving and allowing of others. Whenever we are not forgiving we are living in the past. If you choose not to forget, so be it, but being forgiving is a key to living in the now. Regarding allowance, you know we are all unique human being so why not stop making other people see the world through your eyes. Allow others to just be!
Hopefully I have helped just a little in beginning your own rebirthing process. We are the creators of our current and future life experience and without this acknowledgment very little will change to reflect a desired new direction.
