THE SEASONS OF OUR LIVES
I was asked to take part in a writing adventure by Barbara Franken, a wonderful lady with a
beautiful blog. You can view her inspiring website at:
I was asked to write about my experiences which moved me, awakened me and ascended me
on my shortstop journey here on earth. You can read similar stories in October which provide a
glimpse into the awakening and the ascending process of other people. These stories appear on
her blog with the link provided below:
The four seasons in Canada do not happen in certain parts of the world but seasons can
still happen no matter how subtle they may be. Mankind’s spirituality can also be felt in
the four seasons of the self as well. Seasons have awakened me spiritually every year and I have
ascended simply by being and by listening to the whispers of the seasons.
If I have tweaked you with one thought, one example, one comparison or one image that
you love then I have brought you into an awareness. You have been awakened and you
have ascended into your consciousness no matter how insignificant the thought may be as
long as you felt a vibrational shift. It is another spiritual step you have taken on your
One can experience the IAM, just being, oneness, and then be still which can
produce a greater awakening but not necessarily a more startling ascension. For me, it is
experiencing the mundane where I find the mundane experiences produce astonishing
epiphanies and significant feelings of ascension. We are mind, body, and spirit. Our minds
awaken us, our bodies react and our spirits ascend. Aligning ourselves with truth, our spiritual
power becomes ours and with this spiritual power, we ascend vibrationally with love and
with tranquility which our self, (IAM) transcends into an elated consciousness.
WINTER MY NEMESIS
Winter’s lullaby begins and Winter’s breath lays a white coat everywhere before us. When
I was a child I loved Winter and the hours of play outside to me was entertaining until our little
extremities were numb. I remember snow-caked mittens and long icicles hanging from the
eaves which were a delight to taste despite mother’s warnings.
Winter to me was white death and the word made me cringe. Eventually, Winter has
taught me that death is not permanent and life continues. The stillness of Winter is a time
for rest and also for your next spiritual cycle to begin. The hush of babies sleeping is waiting to
be awakened in Spring to renew the process once again. It is a season of reflection as Winter
magically receives and prepares Spring, Summer, and Autumn for future activities just as we
receive spiritual awakenings and spiritual gifts throughout the years as well.
Winter has awakened me to know its gentleness, serenity and its beauty. Everything in life
which produces a love vibration brings you joy and happiness. You awaken and you ascend in
consciousness. Make your life one to rest, to observe, to reflect, to feel serenity, to be at peace,
and most of all to feel love as we are always held in its cradle. Remember beneath the snow
there are seeds.
Winter’s icy torment follows Spring and when the sun draws closer to earth, the Spring
thaw occurs and we see Mr. Winter melt himself away. Springtime is the land of
awakening where many plants emerge out of the ground and trees don their leaves since a
Many births take place and all births seem to be in a rush. There is a cleaning to be done
which Autumn left behind and Winter has covered up. The decayed leaves and the smell of
renewed earth is two of my delights in Spring which invigorates me out of Winter’s
The perpetual nature of Spring births awakens me to shed my old ways which are no
longer necessary and once again we slip into our newer skins which sees themselves in
the Spring of their awakening. Spring offers rejuvenation and a promise of growth not only
in nature but in oneself as well. Can you imagine a tree sprouting from inside a seed?
Growing blossoms in the Spring. Growing into a full leaf in the Summer. Autumn is where
plants produce many seeds and a magnificent show of Autumn colors. Winter-bare for
resting. All from one seed!
Confidence in a seed
Only if we had,
our visions in a seed.
Just to let it be:
Into the invisible of confidence.
Which grows flowers.
I feel the Spring of my life is a new beginning. Gaia (Mother Earth) lets us feel a new
Spring over and over, year after year again with new eyes. Spring is similar to being born,
physically, emotionally and Spiritually. One can hope to maintain a childhood purity where
one can grow and bring that innocence forward into one’s consciousness.
I ascend knowing the awesomeness of Spring. Its rapid growth, the offering of many
Spiritual gifts to the soul and also, its wonderful magical dance of miracles in nature and
within my Spiritual self.
Spring moves us forward with a renewal of our spirituality and brings us into a new
space of being. From death, a birth arises, from a birth, death is inevitable and the cycle
continues on earth. At this time, we enter another season – a season of exploration which
inevitably screams of Summer.
Our arrival into Summer is cherished by many. People flock to the beach. I love the waves
that swash upon the shore. The sound brings peace and tranquility which hypnotizes me into
Another activity is venturing out in the woods and communing with nature which has a
peaceful and calming effect to my essence. Going barefoot on the grass or on another natural
surface is called earthing and grounding. Follow the link to read more about the benefits
of earthing and of grounding.
Humanity needs peace. Peace is simple yet is made complicated by mankind. As more
people awaken, we will eventually tip the scale for humanity’s ascension.
Gaia keeps on giving and giving to humanity despite us harming her. Heal ourselves and
we heal her as well and eventually, we will see Gaia continue her development into a new
Summer symbolizes adventure. As we look inside ourselves, we are in the summer of our
soul with its explorative nature seeking where our spiritual development will take us to an
awakened state and to an ascension. Summer is the youth and adulthood of our existence
before we feel Autumn’s yawn and where we feel the serenity of our golden years or Autumn
years which presents itself at our doorstep.
AUTUMN’S SPIRITUAL HARVEST
A switch in time slowly turns and with a gust of a colder wind, we quickly slip back into
Autumn. Autumn above all is my favorite season. Gaia begins with her paintbrush by dabbing
trees from her multicolored palette at hand. A final masterpiece is trees that are set ablaze.
Autumn’s bountiful harvest signifies a lessening of labor and a time of an awarded rest.
The pumpkin patch is one of my favorite activities when it comes to Halloween which is a
holiday that is celebrated in North America, Mexico, and a few other countries abroad under
different names. Follow the link below and you will read about Halloween traditions and
other Halloween celebrations around the world.
A SPIRITUAL FROST
In some parts of the world, frost is also known as Nature’s Grim Reaper which signifies a
slow-to-quick death to some plants. We can still experience warmer weather at this time,
however, the first frost yields its magic to a splendid leaf color change. Frost on the
pumpkin is a warning to us all. Two thoughts come to mind, “As the killer frost drapes itself
over pumpkins and over the land do we not as humans experience a frost ourselves? Is
there not a frost on all of mankind?” I think humanity is at crossroads where truth is being
unveiled all over the world and humanity is begging for change. I can feel a shift
happening. There is love being sent vibrationally. It is an exciting time to bear witness to
the joy and happiness being reborn and for humanity claiming true freedom which is our
Winter will soon be here and we will say goodbye to Autumn. As Autumn matures it
sets the stage with a freezing chill to allow Winter to have its icy grip for a few months within
the cycle of recycling which begins anew.
Every awakening and ascension are an experience to open one’s heart. No matter how small
or how big an awakening or an ascension is they are part of a spiritual web where all is
interconnected as one. Autumn awakens me out of my Summer laziness and I ascend further
knowing the beauty of four seasons and also, the beauty in THE SEASONS OF OUR LIVES.
Be well and be at peace.
