Happy Spring Equinox: Protect and support your new beginnings

The Spring Equinox occurred yesterday. It is officially Spring! One tradition of the Native American Medicine Wheel teaches that springtime (or the East) is the time of new beginnings- in nature and our lives. But the new aspects of ourselves have likely not taken form yet. They may exist solely at the conceptual level- in the form of pictures or ideas. It may not be clear as to how they are going to manifest in our lives yet.

The fact that it has not yet taken form makes this stage of personal growth highly vulnerable. The new beginning takes considerable faith and focus to be born. We must not allow ourselves to get distracted from it or talked out of it. I liken the new beginning to a tender seedling. It needs to be protected and nurtured until it gathers enough strength to stand on its own.

And likely not everyone is able to support our new beginning. It may reside outside of their comfort zone (let alone ours). They are used to us being a certain way that they can rely on. We may not fit into the box that they have us in anymore. When we start talking about developing new aspects of ourselves, they may wonder if they will still have a place in our world.

For these reasons, new beginnings require great compassion. We must have compassion for our new self- so it can come into being. We must have compassion for our friends and loved ones- because they may feel frightened and insecure.

You wouldn't think twice about protecting a vulnerable child. Native Americans call them "undefendables." Your new aspects of self require the same protection. Nothing is more precious or important.

Because... without your protection and support, the new you will never come to be.

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I'm giving away my business that was making me $500-$700 a week for free. Just email me at ZellarsCaliman10341 AT gmail.com and I'll show you how I was doing it. The reason is my wife just gave birth to our son and it's time I moved on and started doing bigger things. Cheers!

Hi, I think you're a pretty smart guy so I'm just going to give you an idea. Wanna know how I've been raking in $700 a week EVERY week for the last 5 months? Buying from here: http://bidandwinbig.info and selling it right back on ebay :-). Usually, I don't even need to spend any money out of pocket because I sell on ebay before I have to pay hahah! You should check it out, you can get ipads, unlocked iphones and all those new phones for about $20-$50 if you play it smart. Always bid at night and don' let greed get the better of you. Good luck!

That has been a well displayed review. I just took pleasure in reading through it quite a lot. There are plenty of pages by going online at this time, and after that abundance of material, it is usually grueling to convey exactly what real, and even what folk plainly make-up. A similar thing applies to weight loss programs or any other way of weight loss results. We now have perused very much in respect to the healthy hcg diets, in addition am not sure what you should discover apart from all of it. It seems like hcg treatments will be the way to go, nevertheless they feel high price, which means you happen to require a professional medical doctor. Therefore i'm speculating about hcg drops, as long as they'll go a long way. One can find bona fide painless hcg drops, along with herbal treatments simple hcg drops made available all around. Anyone may even access painless hcg drops inside Walmart now. This diet of which features hcg, seems like it's really a undernourishment diet since they say you consume a lesser amount than 800 calories each day. I would personally suspect that individuals would have to trim off fat using any food lifestyle this way. Additionally, they acknowledge hcg lets you have the ability to stick to the diet program, moreover forces the human body to be capable to get rid of significantly more excessive fat. Thanks, hcg.
