Spring into Hope

The last couple days, I’ve been needing LIGHT in my life. Light that brightens my spirits, comforts my heart, and reminds me that there is HOPE.

Yesterday was a miserable winter day, and my heart was weary. It was the kind of day, where you remember the things you’ve put aside, because you’re working at healing from them, and then they just pop up uninvited. However, when I awoke this morning to the sun shining through my window I was filled with a pleasantness within, a sense of hope, and a feeling of “You’re going to be okay.”

It is such a gift to know that when we were created that Light itself in nature, was created with us, to heal, to provide hope, to offer warmth, to inspire, to create growth, etc. All of these are gifts that bring our spirits to a place of goodness, and wonder. And it is a free gift that just shows up.

Today is the first day of spring in the Northern hemisphere. I haven’t seen my tulips yet, but I am hopeful.

First Day of Spring

Yes, I am HOPEFULL.**

May you be blessed today with LIGHT and may your day be full of HOPE!

Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue

Springtime in the City-Nature’s Inspiring Sights

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice! for your soul is alive!

–Eleanora Duse

Sometimes amongst the chaos of our daily lives: getting up, going to work, taking your kids to daycare, trying not to spill your coffee as you run out the door, honking horns, too many commuters, late trains, over-packed trains, clients, bosses, staff meetings, etc., it’s nice to find a garden in bloom reminding you that, life does give you permission to pause!

But of course you have to take the time to notice. Give yourself the gift of taking a break!

Why not pleasure your eyes with all the beauty and color around you?!

During my working days, I was always really good at saying, “I don’t have time!” to take even 5 minutes to go outside and enjoy the fresh air and natural world. But now that I’ve had time to reflect, I realize I did have the time; I just didn’t give myself the permission to take a break.

Life isn’t about how many hours we’ve worked in a day, but about the moments we choose to give ourselves during the day. 

Happy Spring from NYC!

  • Make a note to yourself how different you feel on the days you take a break versus the days you don’t.
  • Your health and well-being are going to give you a more fulfilled life–filling your life with busyness that doesn’t make you happy deters your health, So
  • Pause and soak up the colors of nature and life!

A Great Healing Happening

When we seek healing and inspiration from deep within ourselves, it often helps to be touched by light. Nature provides us with the gift of the sun. The sun illuminates the plants of the earth and gives them depth. When you let the sun shine upon you, you also can let the depths of yourself shine; revealing from deep within you, your dreams, your hopes, your goals, your aspirations, your beauty, your integrity, and so much more!

These recent days of 80+ degree weather and long days of sunlight in the Northeast have been bringing people out of their homes, and neighbors are meeting one another. The weather and the changes in nature are causing people to connect to one another, and share their joy for the weather with each other. This is causing inspiration to be communal rather than the experience of just one person.  As nature is providing itself as the source of inspiration, people are becoming aware of themselves and others as they are inspired by nature, and thus there is not only a joy from the weather, but also a feeling of a great healing happening between people, within people and all of creation.

Man is not himself only…He is all that he sees; all that flows to him from a thousand sources…He is the land, the lift of its mountain lines, the reach of its valleys.  Mary Austin

Woman is not herself only…She is all that she sees; all that flows to her from a thousand sources…She is the land, the lift of its mountain lines, the reach of its valleys. –Mary Austin (rewritten)

Light Shines as Nature Springs Forth!

Healing has great power when it is a shared goal among many. Trusting in your own inspiration, can be enhanced when others are also affirming the inspiration you feel. The presence of healing through nature in tune with healing among people…pretty powerful stuff!

Rain-Washed Blessings Inspired by the Irish

The spring brings rain with it. Rain effects us in many different ways.  It can inspire us to go out and take photos of its beauty in nature.  It can also change our state and damper our mood. Rain may unmotivate us, and make us less interested in doing things. But, we know no matter how rain may make us feel, it is inevitable that it will come one day. Rain is also very symbolic: It is a symbol of cleansing, and renewing. It is a symbol of our tears. During the spring it is a great source of life–it brings forth new life in the earth. It is also a time of washing away the grays of winter and bringing forth new bursts of color.

I would like to challenge you to bring forth new bursts of color in YOUR life…let the rain bring forth new life, new beginnings in you by washing away YOUR burdens, and sorrows, and filling those spaces with new dreams, hopes, and aspirations!

Once you make the effort to be renewed, let the rain heal you and inspire you through ACTION

  • Jump in puddles like you did when you were a child
  • Stand in your shower, and imagine that it is the rain, washing upon you, and removing all that you need to let go of-Allow healing to happen within you!
  • Stand under the rain, until your hair is wet and raindrops fall off your nose into your hands making a puddle-and say to yourself, “I am alive and refreshed!”
  • Go outside with the one you love and dance!
  • Make your dreams a reality:
  • Write down your goals and hopes in a list
  • Pick one a day that you are going to work at
  • Remember a goal is attainable!—which means you will make it happen!

May the Road Rise to Meet You,
Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue

Nature’s Message: Inspiration and Hope are All Around Us

When we take the time to see nature around us, we can learn deep truths about life. I live in the Northeast. The changes in the weather from one day to the next is a complete mystery this year….You never know what the day may bring. This can be true in our life too…we may wake up and expect the day to be one way, and it brings something completely different or unexpected. But when this happens, we have the choice to embrace the opportunity to be inspired by the experience or we can choose to completely miss it. This morning, I looked out my doorstep and saw this image in nature speaking to me.

This image is ironic in some ways. It’s the image of snow embracing a plant that has died for the season, against the backdrop of new life ‘springing forth.’ Walking out my door I could have just seen the snow, and the decaying plant, but instead, the green…the image of inspiration, and HOPE, caught my eye, and thus, changed the way I woke up to my day.

I felt

HOPE: New beginnings are just around the corner, for each of us, if we just open our eyes and take the time to look for them.

INSPIRATION: if nature can break through the winter and live, then we can break through those things that hold us back and LIVE our lives!

My invitation to you:

1.Take some time today to pause and look at life around you.

2. Note what you see.

3. Let yourself feel the inspiration within you.

4. Put the inspiration into your day and see where it leads you.

5. Write down what inspired you and where it lead you.

Blessings on your day,

Bella Bleue
