You might be asking yourself what is a Spring Mala? I know I did when I first heard about it. Basically a Spring Mala is a time when we can become aligned with nature, such as the natural awakening that occurs in the spring. Spring is a time when trees, flowers and all sorts of plants are budding and butterflies are fluttering about. This is a time when night and day are in equal balance, as light prepares to overtake dark. Days are becoming longer, brighter and warmer.
A mala is 108 sun salutations. A sun salutation is essentially saluting the sun, yet it signifies so much more than that. It’s like an awakening of your spirit, your joy, and inner light/love. Basically, you’re connecting with the sun and recognizing your oneness with it. It’s a beautiful and powerful practice.
I am really proud of myself for staying for the entire set. I needed to do this to show myself I can do this! Also, to show myself how much self-healing I’ve actually done since December (when all my back issues started). I am falling into complete belief of my abilities to heal myself and embrace the future. For the first time I really feel like I’m running towards my future instead of away from it. This is a good feeling.
Is there something you’d like to do, possibly a personal challenge you want to make? I say make it today. See it through regardless of how long it takes you or how much you may want to give up. You’re worth it!
