As we dive into the warmer days of Spring, I invite you to take a moment to turn inward. What longing has been incubating within you this winter that hasn’t been manifested yet in the world?
During the winter, our longings percolate within our thoughts, dreams, and feelings.
And now, as spring arrives and the sunlight returns, it’s a good time to allow them to break through the surface and see the light of day.
Spring’s a perfect time for manifesting your dreams as the natural world bursts forth with life.
What’s calling to you to manifest this spring?
What have you always wanted to do in your life and haven’t yet?
Maybe it’s a big dream you have.
Maybe it’s just to get started on something you’ve been putting off.
Whatever it is, imagine how it might bring joy, love or healing to you and the world.
For inspiration, I share with you some words from St. Hildegard as she endeavored to take up her divine calling in the world even when it was challenging.
Here she speaks of her longing to be the harp and zither of love in the world.
My home is in heaven,
Where I meet all your creation.
God’s love is my desire,
And to raise up the tower of longing, my wish.
I want to do what you ask of me, O God.
On wings of good will
I fly above the stars in heaven
To do your will.
Nothing else remains for me to search
Or wish for.
I long only for holiness.
Let me, O God, be your harp and zither of love!
LVM Pitra IV, 15 (X)
What are you being called to bring into the world at this time?
Envision it now.
How can your vision begin to sprout and grow in this season of spring and renewal?
How can you make it come to life?
What small step can you take today to begin?
Through answering the longing that lives within us to be the harp and zither of the Divine, we can become a powerful healing force in the world, a great need at this time.
“When you have a vision that is strong enough and powerful enough, nothing can stand in your way.” Lewis Howes
