Death is a very powerful word that often instills fear in the heart. However, one should not fear death as it is really about transformation and rebirth, which is exactly what spring is all about. It brings to us in all of its magnificent glory the miracle of rebirth. Today everything is pointing me in that direction, every message I am receiving is about transformation.
Transformation is about eliminating old habits that no longer suit us, and the preparing of the way for the new to emerge. How beautiful to think about, we can release old worn out ways that no longer suit us and make way for the new. What would you release today that no longer suits you? I am going to make a list of everything that comes to my mind, write it down, it is always best to see it in print. Make a ceremony of it after you have written down the things you wish to release. You may chose to burn the words, tear them to pieces, bury them in your garden . . . you get the idea! Personally, I like the concept of tearing the paper to pieces and then burying the pieces in my garden. I will literally see the new emerge in the process of the rebirth of plants in my garden. There is the universal law of what we sow, we reap therefore how transformational to be able to reap new beginnings.
It is important to remember in this process to release the old, not reject it or stand in judgment of it, for the old is rich like a compost heap, full of rich experiences from which new life emerges.
You could also choose to plant a new flower in your garden, such as the Elder Flower, which is known in many parts of the world for its magical and medicinal properties. It allows for the death of the old to be transmuted into the rebirthed self. It can act as a guardian spirit during the metamorphosis and give ease as the transition occurs. Plant some in your garden, drink some tea made of Elder Flower and visualize your rebirth!
