Are you ready to Bloom ?

I woke up this morning, feeling really happy and looked out of window … Oh, dear! It’s raining and it’s damp and cold! But as I Iooked deeply out of the window, I could see lilies and daffodils showing their first signs of flowering, reminding me that the onset of spring is nearby.

The weather is undergoing transition and changes. Winter is ending and spring is at the doorstep. I observe how the universe helps plants to grow slowly from hibernation to rejuvenation. During the winter months, most of the plants hibernate, leaves are shredded and most plant activities are happening within so they are hardly visible. Now, to rejuvenate and grow again to new heights, they need water and the warmth of the sun. Hence we get both rainy and sunny days during this change of season. As the sunlight gets warmer and warmer, it reaches and clears the blockages that the stagnation of the cold weather has left behind. So when spring comes, all the biological processes are activated again and plants start showing their leaves and flowers and blossoms open up in all directions. At last …springtime is here!

Ayurveda says, “Yatha loke,Tatha Dehe”, what we notice in nature is also happening in our bodies. So we can see that there is more Kapha/water accumulation and there are spurts of Agni/sun which gradually starts melting the extra Kapha. If Kapha is not balanced, it can then block the channels, disturb digestion, leading to blocked sinuses, cough and cold or rheumatoid arthritis, Allergies …..
