2. Open up
All around us, flowers are opening up to the warmer days. Think of yourself as a crocus or daffodil unfurling and open your heart to this new chapter in the cycles of nature. The Winter is a time for folding inward; for introspection. Now we naturally find ourselves opening out, expanding, and sensing a need to connect to others. Get outside when the sun’s out and let your shoulders drop down and back so your chest is open.

3. Dream big
From little acorns grow mighty oaks. We can see the beginnings of new life that have lain dormant during the dark days of winter.

Feed it with positivity, nourish it with the company of like-minded folk, and water it with an abundance of enthusiasm and watch it grow before your very eyes!

4. Plant a seed of change within
The cycles of nature are always moving and changing. In Winter we can tend towards stagnation and stillness, but Spring reminds us to start to move again. Witness the changes happening in the world around you, and begin to make changes in your own life. Let go of old patterns that no longer serve you, and welcome in a fresh start. It might help to plant an actual seed at the same time, so you can grow and change alongside this physical reminder of your intention.
