During my 12-year Shamanic apprenticeship with Don Jose Matsuwa, revered Huichol Indian Shaman in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico, he taught me how to connect with nature and the creative Spirit of Springtime. In the Springtime, the Earth is waking up from her dream and everything bursts forth to grow.  Think about the flowers and trees, how they awaken and come back to life in the spring.  The rains fertilize Mother Earth and help the process of Spring evolve.  Water also fertilizes the hearts of humans so the flower of the heart, the "tutu" can open and we can become wiser and more beautiful. It is dormant during the winter like everything in nature, resting.  This is a good thing; it is being charged up to awaken and come out in the Spring-as the earth is waking up, we wake up too.
Spring brings back the power of light. Light, the relationship of the sun to the earth, is what the seasons are all about. Light has the effect of awakening both the Earth and people. The Sun gives the light to the earth. Light activates chemicals that promote love. Love is the power of Springtime, and as Mother Earth wakes up, she puts out that love. The energy of love is reborn in the Spring. It is the same way with humans. The seasons affect us and we go through a major shift with the change of seasons.  We are introspective in winter, energy goes inside.  In the Spring, we experience a rebirth-physically, spiritually, emotionally-we gain new life.
Springtime affects your spirit and your mind. You, as a human, are affected by Nature and the evolutionary processes that occur. Every Spring you have a chance to be regenerated…reborn again from the stillness and quietness of winter.  You have a chance to open up just like everything around us. You can be reborn right here, on this Earth, by opening your heart to the process of regeneration. Feel the aliveness that comes into your own personal spirit, which is connected to the spirit of nature.
We become part of the process of re-creation that is occurring during the season of Springtime. We wake up, become more alert, our hearts are more open. It is a time of new beginnings, everything is opening up. In Spring you come more from your heart.
Spring is a time of fertilizing, watering our spirits, unfolding our hearts. Honor the return of the light…

The light transforms us-bring the light into your heart, your being. Look at the light in nature, become attuned to your environment. As we approach the Equinox, it is a time of balance between light and darkness…

By taking in the light we can take in that power of balance and harmony.
Walking on the earth is a good way to feel and awaken your connection to the natural world. Feel Mother Earth waking up. Tune into that awareness and feel yourself becoming aware and alert during this season. Be aware of what's happening around you and feel it yourself. Look at Spring as though it is the first time you ever experienced it-the first time you ever saw a flower blooming, a tree growing, a bird flying. Open your heart to love, to beauty, to clearness. Leave the old behind and be reborn during the season of Spring. Spring is in the East. The image is the sun peeking through the clouds. You are reborn as the sun is reborn each day.  Each Spring your spirit will burst out of the darkness of winter.  Make your spirit bright like the colors of Nature.  The special power of Spring is newness. Feel the world through your heart. This is a time to leave behind old patterns, old ways of doing things, and embrace the power and beauty of the season.
