The Mist of Spring

May 3, 2022

During my morning check-in with some colleagues, our warm welcome was asking us what our favorite season is and why. By the time it was my turn to share, I had finally narrowed it down to Fall and Spring, but because practically everyone had already said Fall with similar reasons as to why, I decided to choose Spring.

As I began to explain why, I learned something about myself. I used to love Fall more. Being a Californian, I’m amongst the 90% of girls who love Fall most because of the lack of the two cold seasons in my home state. However, as I have aged and lived, I’ve come to realize that I have kinda “outgrown” those reasons (not the feelings).

With Spring, I imagine the dimly light mornings as I watched a blanket of mist fall upon the cascades as the light began to peek through. I see myself sitting on my porch swing, wrapped up in my sherpa throw, noticing the dew on the grass and the moisture resting on top of my budding peonies.

I remember my crisp spring evenings, the freshly picked flowers resting in my wicker basket while a chilled breeze grazes my cheek through the last open window in my farmhouse. I gaze up through my sunroom at the full moon dominating the night’s sky as the smell of the cool breeze fills the room before I sit down for my evening prayers.

 

 

No. I did not share all that with my coworkers.

I shortened it to: “I love spring because of the blooming of my peonies and garden.”

I don’t want them to know I’m weird.

But that got me thinking. Sometimes we do outgrow our infatuation with a season. We never stop enjoying it and getting that warm happy feeling when the season begins. We just stop narrowing your love of the weather to just that single season. You begin to appreciate all seasons…… because you begin to realize that

all seasons have a purpose and need to occur for that greater purpose.

This applies to the seasons of our lives. Life has plenty of ups and downs. You cannot have good without bad or good would not be good for there would be no purpose or point and no value to it. It is because we are alive that we must walk through some tough storms full of tests and trials so that we will be able to soak in and feel the amazing feeling of goodness, of a blessing, of a job well done. You cannot feel or experience a climax of life without having felt the sting of pain. There would be no purpose of living….

I’ve entered the season of healing in my life. As the dead are reborn and begin life, so does my soul begin to grow anew.

The Benefits of Red Light Therapy

here is not a moment where I am not feeling pain somewhere throughout my body. I literally have the body of an 80-year-old lady, and it’s just getting worse because there is no cure to the disease that is deteriorating my cartilage and joints. For years, I’ve mastered physical therapy techniques, gotten acupuncture, and pursued natural alternatives because living on prescriptions is not a permanent option that I will take. Another form of natural therapy I do often is Red Light Therapy. It is one of many things that help me control my chronic illnesses.

7 Ways to Honor the Autumn Equinox

Since ancient times, many civilizations marked both the March and September Equinoxes as special, potent and even holy. Some cultures erected monuments, some people made pilgrimages, and others gathered to feast, celebrate, and perform rituals that helped them align with the energies of the new season.

Since I began my spiritual journey as a Christian Alchemist, I have been honoring this day with God, creating and adopting rituals that I do with my family.

Nature’s Eye Cream [Oil] for Dark Circles

If you have dark circles—like really dark circles—you know the poignant disappointment that comes from an eye cream’s failed attempt at lightening, brightening, and disguising those damned bluish half-moons. It’s something that all the concealer in the world couldn’t fix (at least not in the long-term anyway). Gleaning outside advice doesn’t always help, either. I’ve heard people recommend applying potato slices—even raw milk—to the under-eye area. While those things may have worked for them, I don’t have the time nor the patience for that kind of skincare commitment. I require something much more portable and much less perishable.

I learned how to wear the hat that my client needed me to wear, but I couldn’t just wear it. I had to OWN it like a Vogue runway model.
