That Spring Feeling

“By spreading loving energy, I attract more love.” –Gabby Bernstein 

Winter Storm Stella has come and gone, and despite remnants of ice and snow, my heart feels like spring.

Lately I have been feeling lighter and breezier; my soul a little warmer, a little fuller. Perhaps it’s because of the season approaching, but I’m confident that it’s also because of my practice of self-care, mindfulness and meditation.  It’s been a difficult couple of weeks for me, but I made a conscious decision to take a step back, relax, and breathe- I’m learning to open myself back up to loving kindness, learning to go with the flow, and to stop sweating the small stuff (for it’s all small stuff!).  Yesterday I was able to stay home and enjoy a lovely breakfast with my roommate over a discussion of A Course in Miracles, as well as Gabby Bernstein and Marianne Williamson‘s interpretations of the self-taught course. My transition in Boston has been so much easier since finding such a wonderful, kind roommate who brings not only a calming energy, but a wealth of knowledge to guide me in my spiritual journey (not to mention delicious grain-free pancakes!).

It can be a challenge for me to open up to people and to accept compliments, praise and achievements, but thanks to my own relationships, I am starting to view myself through a different light.  If I am able to lift others up and show loving kindness, why am I so hard on myself?  It’s true that your vibe attracts your tribe, and I’m so fortunate to have met and attracted so many strong, beautiful, supportive people in my life.  When I am feeling a little blue, they remind me of warm summer days and sunshine.  When I doubt myself, they give me strength.

I may have let negative emotions block my light for love, but with a new season approaching I am ready to leave the past behind and move forward with a brand new view on love- one that is lighter, breezier and full of light.
