Green is the color of rebirth, love, renewal, nature. And this is definitely a holiday of play and taking some down time but in a social way.
Also sending me a clear message were the mice that returned last night. Usually thought of as quiet, these mice in the ceiling above my bed were anything but quiet! Never-the-less the symbolism in needing to take time for quiet and focus on the little details of life that have been overlooked was clear.
Mice as well as the coming Spring are also reminders to clear out and start fresh with a lightened load. I have been working on decluttering for the last couple weeks and the message reminds me there is still plenty more that can be cleared. However, I think mentally I'm in need of some clearing just as much as physically.
Last night, despite my daughter sleeping a little better, I could not sleep. I have strayed from my meditation practice and my mind has returned to monkey chatter. Time to return to the silence of that space and see what can be cleared out.
I'm grateful for all these clear messages. I'm grateful for the message appearing in so many ways to reaffirm again and again that I need to refocus and take some quiet time. I'm grateful for the busy schedule I have had that has brought abundance my way. I'm grateful for the time this week with family and friends. And I'm grateful to have a weekend off to wind down and take some family time and some relaxation time. I'm grateful to make a promise to myself to renew my meditation practice in a new way, letting go of how it used to look. I'm grateful for the luck and play of today.
How can you celebrate today? Thinking outside the bottle of green beer, what ways can you play today? How are you lucky? And what messages might today be telling you?
May today bless us all with time to relax, enjoy friends, and be a bit silly. May we find laughter and leprechauns. Have a beautiful day!
