Up For Renewal?

Up For Renewal?

This past few weeks I seem to have been treating lots of new Mums and ladies in various stages of their pregnancy and so I got to thinking that good old Mother Nature must be trying to tell me something! And then it dawned on me, it’s Spring and despite the persistence of dull days we are right in the middle of a powerful period of growth and renewal. And this is a message I needed to receive – Winter has been a long drawn out affair and my senses are badly in need of lighter, brighter energy.
Treating a pregnant woman is a natural reminder of our ability to change and grow. As a therapist I am always aware that I am working with Mum + 1. As the pregnancy progresses the feet start to change to reflect the growth and position of the baby and most special of all the baby will often move and kick during the treatment because it too is receiving warm, calming energy.
New Mum’s often experience a transformation in how they feel during their Reflexology treatment. The Maternal side is well and truly enlivened and sensations that weren’t present before are suddenly awakened.
I do think that this Spring Mother Nature has sent me Mummies to prompt me to reflect on growth, hope and new life.
Perhaps I need to consider what I need to ‘grow’ or transform within myself? Maybe I need to reflect upon the power within all of my female friends. Perhaps I just need reassurance that brighter days are to come.
For those of you feeling deflated because your New Year resolutions have flopped – take heart. January probably isn’t the most natural time for transformations. Now is good though – Spring is all about rebirth, growth and renewal. The inspiration is all around us, nature doesn’t doubt it’s ability to prevail against the odds and neither should we.
