For many religions the beginning of spring is associated with Lent, especially with Christians. And this can mean so much more....
I'd like to think of it as a season of real transformation, especially in regard to health. It can be a time to really let go of unhealthy habits.
Think of animals who shed their skins. Just like in nature as an animal who sheds its skin, you too can thoughtfully eliminate old ways that really do not serve you in a healthy manner. This creates a way for you to grow in a more impactful way.
Change is not always easy. Sometimes you might feel weak or inadequate. You may want to cling to the familiar ways that you know, even though ultimately these ways harm you. So turn within and ask Spirit for that inner guidance so you can tap into more wise decisions and then put them into real action. Choose, decide, command, and direct yourself. Looking deep within, you will find the will, wisdom and clarity you need to be successful. When you align your head and your heart, you can step forward with the calm assurance you need to be successful, to replace negative habits with new healthy habits. Make this space for who you are really meant to be.
