Spring is returning to Christchurch; the hours of daylight are increasing and new growth is urging up as the ground gets warmer and the sap starts to rise. In our modern, industrialized, technological world, it’s really easy to forget that we are part of nature also and that we’re influenced by the changes of season, as much as the plants and (other) animals are.
Something I notice in people who come to see me, is there is a definite category of ‘spring crisis’ which emerges. It’s something you might experience yourself: often this will be an urge inside of you for something better, something you want to do with your life which has more meaning or fulfillment that what you currently have.
It may not be specific what it is you want for yourself or where to put this energy that you’re strongly experiencing-which in itself can be difficult and sometimes frustrating. But you can feel that urge; like an acorn germinating and beginning to grow inside your heart.
