Here Comes The Sun

Today marks the Spring Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere. It heralds a time of light and warmth, of shedding the heavy layers that felt protective of my heart and body. Like many of us in the colder climes, I am feeling a sense of relief that the snow and ice have melted away as well. My electric bill has been through the roof  this winter and I am grateful that I can keep the thermostat down and soon open the windows.

I have, as have many in my life, taken notice of the desire to hibernate. There are some mornings that this go-getter wants to dive under the covers and, like the groundhog, stay there until the temps get above 50 degrees and I need not wear a wool coat and boots. I have felt a sense of emotional overwhelm, as if taking on so much of the frozen energy of those I encounter. As an empath, I need to be mindful of that. In my daily work as a therapist, I surround myself and my clients with love and light, keep my reiki energy switched on. As a friend and mother, sister and aunt, I create space for my loved ones to share what is on their minds and at times am overwhelmed with the amount of pain they feel. In the past few weeks, two brilliantly shining women in my circles have made their transition. Prior to that, the father of a dear friend took his leave. The hearts of those around me are weeping and I don’t always have the means to comfort their grief.

It is then that I turn to the Source of all healing and like the sunflower, lift my face to the solar comforter.
