The last few days we have been dealing with a Nor’easter. I have found, that as is the case of most Mother’s, Mother Nature can definitely be a force to be reckoned with! I believe our body, mind and spirit, connect with all phenomenons of nature. The beautiful sun in all its powerful glory can immediately change a mood, as warmth and the positivity penetrate the very essence of the soul, and rain…well it’s cleansing properties, its gentle drops, or driving deluge become an all-powerful way to rid ourselves of toxicities that rule our minds and bodies…that which needs to be flushed away in order to leave us with a cleansed slate. Ahhh but wind, wind is something I’ve struggled with for some time. Wind has scared me for most of my life. I’m not really quite sure why, however I find myself huddled, wrapped in my blanket, hands over my ears, praying for it to stop. Is it the damage it causes? Certainly that can’t be it, as my rational self tells me that too much sun, through drought, and too much rain, through flooding, can be equally as damaging. So for today I shall work on my fear of wind…I shall relish and draw from its power; I shall let it bend me from my inflexible self to a more adaptable open-minded being…I shall let it flow through my hair and frolic across my face reminding me to be a bit less serious and bit more playful, I shall let it refresh my spirit, and finally I shall let it wrap itself around each of my worries and carry them far away….
