Traditionally Spring is a time of movement, of life emerging, and big, bold energies and celebration. For those of us who are spending most of our time at home this spring, however, the seasonal change might create a restless contrast. And yet, over these past several weeks I’ve been reminded of just how much re-connecting with nature helps alleviate feelings of stagnation or irritation.
If you can, find a way to draw from nature’s primal elements—earth, stone, water, air, plant life or sunlight—as you find these in your surroundings. Walking outside, you might notice the vastness of the bright sky, or the nearness of looming clouds. The wind in motion, moving the branches or leaves in the trees, can help release our feelings of restlessness. Nurturing a growing plant, whether in a garden, pot or window box, we can more easily ground into the present moment. Stones like amethyst can help us find ease and depth in times of turbulence. Of course, if you have the opportunity, taking your worries to a stream, river, lake or the great ocean is an ancient remedy for all kinds of worry.
Whichever of nature’s elements you are drawn to, you might take a moment to connect with that energy each day, seeing what’s consistent and noticing what has changed. By tuning into the natural world, and becoming conscious of its beauty, we are granted a natural resilience that can lend us uplifting strength.
