Life has cycles, and cycles represent change. Mother Nature goes through Her seasonal changes and all living creation has to adapt to these changes. If we do not adapt, we suffer the consequences. Therefore, we get busy with preparing our outer selves and external surroundings to deal with the seasonal changes. But how many of us also prepare our internal and spiritual selves for the seasonal changes?
Living on Maui, where the seasonal changes are not as intense as on the mainland, one might presume you don’t have to prepare as much. However, even living on Maui I notice that I experience body and mood changes with the change in seasons. I crave certain types of food I don’t normally crave. I look at the ocean and cringe because I intuitively know it’s colder. All these messages are communicated to us because our intuition is in alignment with Mother Nature and knows exactly what we need in each season.
No matter what we do, the seasons will change. Why, then, do we resist change when we know it is the norm on this planet?
How can we be more willing to accept change? Firstly, by accepting that change is inevitable. Then make one change at a time if the universe will allow it — because sometimes, based on our soul journey, multiple changes are thrust upon us to get us to our divinely appointed place. In instances as such, trust the process. Trust that as the seasons change in order and without chaos, that same force is guiding you and will take care of you because you are precious and loved.
