Dear Yogis and Friends!
Every year I get very excited when the sun crosses the celestial equator and day and night become of equal length.
The spring equinox marks the beginning of a new season, and living in Berlin, that symbolically marks the end of a long winter and the beginning of light shining through again! It might still take some time but it is happening!
It’s time for that (internal and external) spring cleaning and I, for one, could not be more excited about it!
I find that every winter, a symbolic hibernation takes place in us that wisely slows us down, makes us go inwards, meditate, ponder, self-explore. It asks of us to explore our inner strength when the light is dim and the air is heavy. And in doing so we start planting new seeds into our subconscious, new wishes for our lives, new directions to follow.
And now? Now it’s time to open the windows, to clean up the cobwebs, and get rid of all the extra things that have accumulated and are not needed. It’s time to let fresh air into our hearts and minds. It’s time to enjoy the butterflies, the singing of the birds, smile at strangers, and let the sun touch our skin. It’s time to bloom!
HAPPY SPRING EVERYBODY!!!
