Live the Life You Love

What happens in Springtime? Our thoughts turn to the celebration of

the season of rebirth, renewal, and new life! As the sprouts poke up

through the ground, we have a new feeling of hope in our hearts. Hope

for the future, hope for the planet, hope for new possibilities in our

lives. We see that nature is ever-renewing itself, and that the world

is a place of infinite abundance and new growth. How does that

manifest? First, we feel in our hearts an opening, an expansive

feeling. Then, we get that energetic momentum that makes us want to

sweep out the old and sweep in the new. Spring cleaning! This is an

excellent time to do a physical cleanse. And it’s not only the

physical body that we want to cleanse, but our minds as well. Sweep

out the cobwebs of old thought patterns. The world is open to our

highest desires right now. This is a good time to assess what we

really want in our lives, and to open ourselves to our good. How can

you make your desires become your reality? Now is the time to take

action; to create the life you have always wished for.
