Place of Serenity | Spring

The only thing I can be sure of right now, is that spring is on its way

Everything else is uncertain.

Yet the truth is, we lull ourselves into certainties. Really, every day is an unknown.

So take heart in the sound of birdsong; robins, sparrows and crows.

Nothing fancy. Just the joyous sound that must have been the backing track to many of our lives since childhood.

Crocuses, snowdrops and daffodils have all quietly appeared too. I hope these signs of spring are reassuring for you as they are for me!

And no matter what you are going through, it’s OK to be emotional

When you say you practice mindfulness, it doesn’t stop you from feeling fear, uncertainty or sadness.

What it means is that you are more fully present with the ups and downs. You can observe your emotions and you know that you can be with them yet manage them in many different ways.

  1. Ground yourself by remembering your feet. Wriggle your toes and breathe up and down as if you are drawing on the support of Mother Earth.
  2. Notice how you can take deep breaths that roll in and out with your stomach; slowly, deeply and smoothly.
  3. Be kind and compassionate to yourself. This reveals itself in the language your mind uses. Stop your harsh inner critic and instead create phrases to support you: ‘May I be well.’  ‘May I be at ease.’  ‘May I walk with peace and serenity and courage.’

Enjoy the winter month of February while inviting spring to steady you with its promise!
