Simply put, it’s that time of year when rebirth feels most natural. The spring is coming alive around us (at least for those of us in the Northern hemisphere), and Mother Earth is waking up after a long, deep rest.
If you’re like me, you’ve pretty much spent the past few cold months in a bit of a hibernation phase. I will be honest, I didn’t spend a lot of time socializing over the winter months, I kept mostly to myself and a few close loved ones. I feel like the winter time gifts us the time to rest, and reevaluate who we are, and what is important to us. My heart has been battling with my mind over the huge shifts that she knows need to happen. I feel like the mind holds the tendency to prefer familiarity. To prefer to hold onto relationships, and life situations that may be exhausting, but you know what to expect from them.
My heart keeps telling me that it’s time to let go of so many hours of work that I’ve been putting in to my business over the past decade. She keeps telling me that it’s time to begin a brand new path, that is in alignment with a higher purpose, and can help the world on a greater scale. But my mind keeps telling me no, it’s filled with fear, and keeps telling me that logically, this shit does not make sense, why would I do it.
That’s the best part about my journey, knowing I always have to listen to my heart.
That if I don’t listen to my heart, I’m going to miss out on all the magic, on all the wonder, and on all the experiences that I’ve been brought here to have.
So I have to stop, and I have to listen, I have to keep telling my mind that it’s okay, and that I have to trust.
Does this sound familiar?
I know that it’s so hard for us to listen to our hearts, over our very logical minds, that we have become so dependent on over all these years.
I know that the heart sometimes shares things with us that make absolutely no sense.
And I know that a lot of the time, our mind may talk us out of listening to our hearts.
I get it. I’ve been there. Sometimes I’m still there, and I wish I wasn’t.
However, I will say, that if you begin to take small steps, baby steps to let your heart begin to guide you, to let your heart start to show you the way forward, to let your heart make your big decisions, and trust and have faith, then the universe will gift you all you’ve ever dreamed of.
