3 Ways to Use the Power of Spring to Make a Fresh Start

posted by Guy Finley

During this time of the year it would be easier to stop the earth from spinning than to stop the surge of new life being awakened within her.

Life is beginning again everywhere, and so can we, if we are willing.

The power of spring lends us the fresh forces we need to break through and to let go of old patterns. During this time of the year, the possibility of making a brand new beginning in life is never greater. Why is this true? Because spring also dawns within us, and if we will align ourselves with the power of its presence, then the unstoppable principle of rebirth itself will work for us.

How can we harness this planetary power for our own good? Here are just three of the many ways we can work with spring to start a new life for ourselves:

1. All past wishes lying dormant within us — to outgrow old limitations — should be brought out into the light of our longing to transform them and be left there to bathe in our need to be free. Whatever conditions in life may have once overcome us should be re-challenged now, regardless of past results.

2. As spring marks the return of a celestial light that gradually grows greater than the darkness it has come to dismiss, so is this the best time to stand up and start walking through whatever frightens us.

3. We should work to detect and detach ourselves from old heartaches, keeping our eye on emerging possibilities, instead of looking back at lost opportunities. By acting in this way — as though we are free — we find that what once held us captive no longer has the power to keep us down. We succeed because we have becomes partners with the light of Real Life.

Each spring great forces are released to work upon and within us. Life is literally seeking itself through us, asking us to open ourselves and receive what will renew us. But, if we would receive this new life, with all its promise, then we must be willing to sacrifice within us whatever stands in its way. We can only be made as new as we are willing to let go of who we have been, and springtime not only awakens this need within us, but it also grants us the possibility of its realization.

Love Has Her Seasons

If trees move through seasons — and their loveliness only changes to reveal itself in new forms — then why not consider that Love has Her seasons too? And is any season more beau­tiful than another, or is it just that we tend to forget those very special elements each has to offer in its own time and on its terms?

Is spring greater than winter? Summer more important than fall? Don’t they really need one another in order to be all that they are?

The Secret Place of All Fresh Starts

posted by Guy Finley

The fear we feel that we can’t succeed with starting life all over again is because our old nature wants us to believe that the path to a New Self requires we retrace our steps and fight our way back to an unsoiled starting place in life. But here’s the truth: There is no pathway, past or future, that leads to Real Self-Newness. The secret place of all fresh starts in life unfolds right from where we are in each moment that we will dare to leave who we have been behind us. Start Now!
