Out of Darkness and into the Light
I feel as though every cell in my body has been waiting for Spring.
I hate mentioning lockdown, as it’s just a reminder of how challenging things have been, but I really feel as though it has made Winter seem darker and longer somehow.
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Over winter I experienced the worst case of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) that I’ve ever had. I always get mildly affected but I honestly thought I was losing my mind this time.
I really had to fight to feel happy, stay motivated and be kind to myself and in all honesty, I wasn’t very successful at it.
There were some things that helped such as my light therapy lamp which literally saved me from a dark hole some days. I also experimented with vitamins and other supplements with mixed results. And I made a point to leave the house every day, even when I really didn’t want to.
Over the past week or so, the extra daylight hours and the more regular visits from the Sun have lifted me up so much and I feel almost myself again.
Wintering by Katherine May
I recently read an amazing book that helped me to connect with my experience of winter. It’s called Wintering by Katherine May. I came across this book when I was really struggling during the low light winter months and the anxiety and stress of lockdown.
Spring Equinox 20th March 2021
This is the time of the year when the energies start to increase, ideas start to form and we unwrap from our protective winter clothing.
As I do this, the symbolic ritual of letting go has never felt stronger for me.
I let go of the:
- Darkness of my winter
- Sleepless nights
- Shadows in the darkness
- Negative thoughts
- Feelings of failure
- Slumber of my creativity
- Grief of being more alone
- Isolation and limitation
- Uninviting cold
- Anxiety and emotional discomfort
“I release how tightly I held onto this winter vibration even though I knew it was doing me harm”
“And I forgive myself for being uncaring and unsupportive during my dark moments”
I look outside of my studio window as I write this and I see plants coming back to life and animals reclaiming their place in the open and getting ready for the next generation to emerge.
This is the time for rebirth.
It is now that we reclaim the time we lost over winter without any regret for its passing and the events that transpired during the darkest days of the year.
