Are you ready for spring? In my tradition of the medicine wheel, the new year starts in the spring. Spring is when a new cycle of your life is born. This is readily apparent in nature with plants sprouting and animals giving birth in the spring. To be clear, spring is when the essence of your new cycle is conceived, so it may not have form yet. It's also when your intention naturally begins to issue forth
from you to create the new things you would have for yourself.
Accordingly, it is a critical time to get clear with your intention. Whether your intention is conscious or not, it will issue forth and begin to create things in your life. Carrying an unconscious intention leads to recreating old patterns over and over- perpetuating a karmic cycle of sorts. So now is the time to consciously choose your intention. That way you can create something new and desired for yourself.
Chances are, the winter has given you ample opportunity for introspection. Hopefully, you have gotten in touch with what is truly important to you. If not, now would be the perfect time to connect with that.
Once you are clear with what is important to you and what you would like to create in your life, you can craft a clear intention. An effective way to approach this is to consider what the qualities of the thing you wish to create might be. For instance, if you are wanting to create a new relationship, qualities might include: close, playful, loving, supportive, honest, collaborative, etc.
When you offer a clear intention such as this, life can align people and experiences with your intention. That way you can recognize the qualities you intended regardless of the form in which your creation may present itself to you.
