"We all have something that breaks us open...and as we search for the pieces, all along the way we find out who we are." - Susan Lipshutz
This moon cycle it's time to clean up and let go. Life is stirring under the soil and dead leaves and branches must be cleared to make way for new growth. As we each approach spring, think about what needs to die so that something can live.
In this episode, Susan talks about how to spring clean your psyche and master healing through action. She says, "think about the seeds you want to plant." She refers to Don Miguel Ruiz's teaching that in our quest for mastery, we should ask ourselves, "do you want to be a master of pain or a master of love?" She shares tips on how to do a spring grief ritual and recommends four flower essences to work with this season. She also talks about why some people may feel irritated or angry in the spring and how best to prep for Mercury Retrograde.
