Spring into the Best YOU!

bamboo spring picJust like a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, wintertime transforms into springtime. What appears to shift instantly actually takes time to cultivate and grow. For example, some bamboo species (if you take really good care) only grow four inches in four years. It’s only in the fifth year the bamboo “suddenly” grows 1000 times faster and sprouts 80 feet. That’s what I call a quantum leap!

How does this happen? Why does this happen? And how can we manifest such drastic growth in our own lives?

In Chinese philosophy we call the process of transformation “eating bitter;” the continual effort necessary to achieve optimal health and happiness. Living from a place of authentic well-being is not a one-time wham-bam-thank-you ma’am quick fix. (Forget what Big Pharma is telling you, please!)

For us to grow and evolve in a positive, natural direction our mind, body and spirit require continuous nurturing.

I’ve experienced spontaneous healing in my own life as well witnessed phenomenal health transformations in the lives of those I love and Serve. What I’ve come to realize is that health and happiness are choices. Each of us is like the tiny-then-mighty bamboo plant. When you take good care of your health, tending to the garden of your life, your life sprouts into magnificence and meaning. Every day, little by little, step by step, breath by breath, we deweed our thinking and our live. Negative thoughts, people, patterns and circumstances become less and less powerful. We become peaceful responders to life. We start off as hardworking gardeners and transform our thorns into beautiful roses.

Even more beautiful? It’s never too late to start over. I’ve seen people in their 70s and 80s reclaim their health and their life, simply by making the conscious effort to live better, happier lives.

Now is the perfect season to grow. Springtime is a time for rejuvenation and growth. We all have strengths, challenges and life lessons. Just as the arrival of spring awakens animals out of hibernation, may you too be awakened.

Look within and ask yourself what’s been hibernating, waiting to come out. See yourself where you want to go and then work backwards. What steps do you need to take? What can you do right now, in this moment, to be the best you possible?

When you believe change is possible, you’ll live like a flower blossoming with the early morning sunshine. You’ll watch and celebrate as your hopes and dreams blossom.

Happy Springtime! Love & Gratitude,
