been in over a century ! I love this time of year, when light and
darkness are in balance before the light grows stronger. This is
the time to celebrate new opportunities, a time when all inner
and outer resources are brought into harmony; a time of new life
and rebirth, as well as the end of winter. Can you feel the
energy shifting? Can you feel the fresh, invigorating, inspiring
energy of Spring blowing into your life? This season represents
a time of powerful cleansing and transformation.
Maybe you don't feel it YET...but you will. That's the promise of
In typical fashion, a day after it was hot enough to wear shorts,
the first day of Spring where I am in Colorado brought a blizzard
with wet, heavy snow, weighing down tree branches and
covering the landscape. This unpredictable season can be
challenging. The winds of inner and outer change are blowing,
(I've noticed lots of blustery days recently) and that can make
things feel a bit topsy-turvy. You may even feel a little
restlessness with all of this new energy. Don't be surprised if
this is a bit of a wild ride. “All great change is preceded by
chaos” Deepak Chopra As the earth turns away from
darkness, the shift from Winter to Spring is preparing us to
radiate more light.
Even if you’ve been feeling SO READY to leave Winter behind
and for Spring to arrive (I know that's how I’ve been feeling), it’s
important to remember that we’re letting go of the past and
opening to new life. The Vernal Equinox is a time of balance
between Yin energy--Winter's inward-focused darkness &
incubation – and Yang energy--Spring's external, outward-
focused world of light, activity, and rebirth. As the daylight hours
lengthen, we still need restful, nurturing energy. There is huge
growth & transformation coming in the days, weeks, and months
ahead. In order to embrace the changes, you need more rest!
There may be a silver lining to this period of physical distancing
and "cacooning" (reframing "isolating"): It gives us the gift of
time. So ... consider this your permission slip for giving yourself
time to rest, even when you're pulled toward activity. Give space
to the quiet voice asking for gentleness, for radical self-care, an
act of loving yourself that contributes to manifesting your
Tete’ daffodils are showing off

Just like the new growth we
see around us, the dreams
we envisioned earlier this
year are emerging. It's a very
intense time of transition, not
unlike giving birth. There is
powerful seasonal energy in
the air that brings all your Winter dreams to life. This is the time
for aligning yourself with the changes that are coming, for
revisiting your Vision 2020, and for committing to bringing
yourself into deeper contact with your own magic. What you
envisioned for yourself a couple of months ago may not be your
vision now. Has your Vision changed since January? What do
you want to be born into your life this Spring? This year? How
do you want to feel today? This month? This year?
This is a powerful time for co-creating our individual and
collective future. How we align our energy right now, especially
as conscious, aware, intentional people, really matters. Where
we focus our attention and intention will impact the whole, and
add to the collective love, hope, kindness, and compassion. It
takes an immense amount of courage to let go of the past we’ve
cherished and open to an uncertain, new future. I believe there
is something new arising from this time of unpredictability and
uncertainty. I see a willingness to move together and be
available to what is needed. I have great hope for what will
evolve out of this global situation, out of this season of change,
tumult, and rebirth. You are called to trust that life is working for
you, for all Beings. When you feel overwhelmed or pressured,
remember that going inward is a wonderful way to regenerate
yourself. Connect to your authentic self and ask yourself what
you need to let go of in order to become more calm and
balanced so that you grace-fully weather the changes.
How do we find stillness and peace when "life happens", when
people and events pull us out of our center? Rebecca Abraxas
offers three easy, powerful ways keep peace alive.
This Co-Creative Mandala—“Anticipation” reminds us that we
are preparing to radiate more light and we have the power to
make a difference. I like the energy of “Anticipation” because it
encompasses both our imagination and action.

That brings your Vision to life.
In this simple, yet powerful exercise, I invite you to celebrate
harmonizing mind, body, spirit in anticipation of shifting from
constriction to expansion. Our thoughts, words, and actions
change the world. When we embrace the unfolding and trust the
process, we remember that we are being supported. Life is
always moving toward expansion.

Close your eyes. Bring your awareness to your breath; just be
with your breath. Take a deep breath in. Breathe out. Take
another deep breath in. Breathe out. Notice the sensations as
you exhale—without judgement. Feel the body breathing. Bring

Open your eyes and bring your attention to the mandala; allow
the mandala energy to fill your heart; be with whatever is there.
Invest a few minutes toward allowing the “Anticipation” energy

Imagine the “Anticipation” energy flowing through you and

constricted (rather than expansive) about.
Now, ask yourself:
- "What do I need right now?"
- "Who do I want to be, my best version of myself, in this situation?"
- "How do I demonstrate that?"
- "What if everything is already okay?"

Storm, in the midst of all the uncertainty that comes with the
current global crisis? One energy modality that I've found to be
gentle and effective for when I’m triggered or stressed is
EFT/Tapping. By tapping on meridian acupoints, EFT/Tapping
sends a signal to your energy system to let it know you're safe.
It's a very effective technique for clearing the energy system of
of the disruptions that happened from past experiences or
from worry about the future. When we feel safe, we can see our
