Time for Spring Cleaning!
It’s that time again!
Weathers warming up, flowers are starting to bloom, and things are beginning to feel lighter! According to Ayurveda and other traditions of healing, this is considered one of the best times to detoxify and cleanse. Why? During Winter we hibernate and accumulate, and due to the nature of Spring and its lighter and warmer qualities, detoxification is natural process. Sometimes though our body needs extra help to facilitate a proper cleansing. Otherwise we may continue to feel heavy and lethargic (mentally and physically)through the transition of the seasons.
Cleaning and detoxifying whether its your home, or your body is also a great practice in letting go and clearing out that which no longer serves you. It’s also a great way to reconnect with your Self. We become so contracted, conditioned, and bombarded by all the external stressors in our lives, that we start to believe that that is who we are. True, When we are not taking necessary steps in bettering our health and well being, we become walking projections replaying old stories and hurts onto one another. We become depressed and life seems like no fun!
Cleansing helps us to peel the layers of samskaras ( impressions embedded into the subconscious mind) so that we can re member who we really are: That which is Divine!
Couple things I take the time to do every day, that give me more freedom in body and mind:
*Yoga A power~full and easily accessible practice in which mind*breath*body*spirit are mindfully integrated. Where would I be without Yoga!
*Meditation Quiet and stillness brings more peace and calm to my being and creates space for light and inspiration to come through.
*Relflection Taking the time to pause and reflect upon my self and actions helps me to “see” beyond the veils of illusion.
*Ayurvedic “Kitcheree” Cleanse ( Seasonal) so that I can re-collect and re-set any old or un~useful patterns that might have re-emerged.
As usual, lots of fun workshops and things going on this month. Don’t forget to check out my Ayurvedic Detox Workshop coming up soon!!!!
Blessings and Happy Spring Everybody!
