March 2011: Hands & Heart

“Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.” ~ Zen Proverb 

The spring equinox this month truly ushers in a time of new beginnings. What did you plant? What's coming to fruition for you now or very soon? Life is cyclical and that is never more evident than when we actually start to see some of our projects take root, our ideas blossom, our relationships bloom, and our businesses grow "corn". Get ready for new life everywhere. The wonderful thing about the springtime of our life is that in fact we do get to reap our harvest. This is a fertile time of the year! So take your heart into your hands and accept the luck you have made for yourself. This month we celebrate the connection of our hands to our heart, not just symbolically, but in the work that we do in the world...the actions that we have taken and the creations we have made a reality. So many people in our community and around the world have been very valiant in their own personal growth and willingly faced their shadow. Well groundhog already saw his shadow and now it's time to glow in the radiance of  the emerging sunlight and bask in the sweetness of spring. Bright blessings to all!

All that is gold does not glitter, 
not all those who wander are lost; 
the old that is strong does not wither, 
deep roots are not reached by the frost. 
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, 
a light from the shadows shall spring; 
renewed shall be blade that was broken, 
the crownless again shall be king.
 ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

"If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom."  ~Terri Guillemets

I allow my hands to do the work of my heart.
I look forward to my future with faith, hope and joy.
I embrace the unknown and allow Spirit to reveal the beauty of my soul.
I am free to create a beautiful life.
I am open to experiencing more love in my life.
I allow my creativity its full expression.
My talents are needed in this world.
I am a unique expression of the divine.
I allow myself to experience the cyclical nature of life with grace.
I set up myself to encounter more ease in my day to day life.
I release myself from the path of suffering and create beauty in the world.
When I am happy and healthy, I send the energy of health and happiness to the entire planet.
I feel lucky and joyful.
I tap into my highest creativity for solutions and new ideas to help myself and others.
I see the path of beauty before me.
I am so grateful for the abundance of spiritual support from my community.
I am a part of a real human family of mankind.
My family extends into my friendships.
I am an important part of my community.
I am surrounded by loving supportive people.
I honor my shadow and my light and see myself whole and healed.
I am blessed and I bless others every day.
May the circle of love that is my life be unbroken.
May we all walk in beauty.
May I reap the rewards of my creations and quickly correct what is in error.
May all my errors turn to blessings.
I have the eyes to see and the ears to hear the desires of my heart and soul.
May I tap into my imagination to activate a higher vibration of love within my being.
Love is all around and within me.
I am dancing the sacred spiral of creation.
My joy is a blessing to the earth.
I touch the lives of others with random acts of kindness.
My destiny is to love and be loved.
