It’s spring where I live! There is rebirth going on everywhere. I see new grass poking up out of the old dead brown stuff, and little babies showing up everywhere! It’s amazing how the whole world comes to life when the sun gets a bit warmer.

Spring has inspired the earth since the beginning of time. Plants and animals, including humans, react with energy and joy. There’s something about a longer day and a shorter night that brings out the best in us. Green pops out everywhere as the long awaited warmth awakens the earth. Eggs are laid in new cozy nests and long-legged foals appear in the lush pastures. It’s a great time to be alive!

We visited a friend who’s dog recently had a litter of puppies. No, they’re not mine, but kinda look like me. I was very intrigued by their funny noises and furry coats. They smelled new and clean, like a fresh breeze after a wet rain. I just love them. I got down low so I didn’t scare them, rolled on my back and let them crawl all over me. It felt so funny when their tiny feet scrambled across my tummy. Playing with them made my heart feel good. I just love babies!

Spring is a time of renewal. It’s a great time to clean out the old stuff and make room for new. That includes not just your house, but your heart and mind as well.

Do you have old “stuff” cluttering your mind? Are there old pains or resentments that are clogging up your rebirth into new adventures?

Maybe it’s time to do some mental house cleaning. It’s time to forgive those old hurts, release those burdensome resentments, and forgive yourself for all your perceived mistakes. It’s time to be reborn!

I still feel bad for chewing up Jane’s new boots when I was a puppy, but I’ve decided to let that go. Jane has forgiven me, and now I need to forgive myself. I learned my lesson and don’t chew shoes and boots anymore, so why hold on to guilt? It serves no purpose, and only diminishes my energy. I’ve decided to spring clean the whole incident away!

When you have some time, make a list of all the things in your past that are eating away at your present energy. Hand-write your list on a piece of white paper. Then buy an outdoor flowering plant, dig a hole, shred the note, and put it in the hole. Add the plant on top of the shredded list. Know that the plant will grow and be fed by the decomposition of this list. Water and watch your plant thrive, knowing it is the release and transformation of that old stuff that is making those flowers bloom!

Then make a list of your hopes and dreams. Make sure your list is stated in positive, present-tense words. Read that list every day when you get up, and when you go to bed. Know that whatever you give your attention to, expands. So give your attention to what you want, not what you don’t want!

I want to go for a walk to the pond! I went to Jane and asked her to take me. I kept visualizing the pond and prancing at her feet until she started laughing and went to get the leash.

Off we go! I’ll bet your dog would love to go for a walk too! Do you have a pond nearby? I hope so!

Love, Indy
