A strong foundation of self-love and empowerment makes for a life that can blissfully bloom in concert with nature and your heart. This Spring, follow the tips below to get your internal house in order and gently spring clean the old to make room for a new radiant love life. It all starts inside of you!
1. Tend Your Heart. Give your heart the love and caring a master gardener would share with a new garden. Take a realistic internal “temperature” of your heart. Be honest with yourself about how you are feeling. Does your heart still feel bruised from a breakup? Do you feel lonely? Do you feel full of love for everything you encounter? Or maybe all three? Being aware of yourself fosters an inner environment of honesty and acceptance. You have to give yourself this freedom to be truly aware of who you are. An added bonus is you will be less likely to repress and bury your emotions, and therefore more likely to truthfully represent your needs in a relationship. This helps create a real and lasting bond. Whether it is with a romantic partner, friend, or family member.
2. Warm Your Soul. What touches your soul in a deep nourishing way? Sometimes, we aren’t actually sure what reaches us deep in our core and nurtures us. But it’s important we find out. Think of it like the gentle Spring sunshine warming the ground and through this warmth calling forth a seed to sprout and eventually bloom into a gorgeous flower. What fosters your soul’s health and happiness? Maybe it is heart-centered meditation, dance class or time with close friends. It could be getting your hands in the dirt and communing with your herb garden. It may be as simple as believing in yourself. The choice to warm your deepest soul comes from a knowledge that you are important. You matter. Your soul is precious. Nourish it.
3. Blossom at Your Own Perfect Pace. Honor your own perfect timing. Your body, mind, heart and soul are self-correcting and self-regulating. You are precisely programmed to live your best life. Each moment offers you a choice to live from a place of self-honoring and self-love. Through that commitment to yourself, you position your heart to share that same level of caring with the rest of the planet to the best of your ability.
Step into this now by aligning with your best life using a simple statement. Repeat aloud now three times, “Proper Universal Alignment.” Feel your spine align. Feel your being reorganize around this principle. You can trust your own inner sense of timing. You will blossom into the love life you desire or any other state you are aiming for by taking conscious action and trusting the timing of your soul aligned life. The more you choose goodness, love and joy, the more of it you reap each day. You create an endless flow of positivity by making conscious choices and taking conscious action. Especially with your love life, once you have taken the necessary action steps all you can do is trust and have faith in the beautiful perfection of your life.
Let the bounty and beauty of Spring inspire your life to be gently nurtured and bloom forth into bliss this year by choosing to tend your heart, warm your soul, and blossom at your own perfect pace.
