Day 1 on deck- And a garden clean out

Today I enjoyed a day in the garden. Clearing away the clutter, debri, leaves, of last fall and allowing the spring growth to shine through. And what a sweet day it was, the sun was shining, it was warm and the beauty of spring was more evident with each pile of leaves I raked away from the garden. It looks so fresh and new and I was deeply in love with each moment of bringing the new growth to light. It was a pleasant reminder for me that as I am in process now of clearing away the clutter and debri of my mind, I can stay ever present and in love with the new growth that I am allowing to shine through in my life. It was a meditative experience, my mind was clear, and I was able to hear the "wisdom of my heart" clearly. Playing a sweet melody of joy and expectation for all the goodness and blooming that is to come!

I am taking Ashram next week. In the dictionary ashram is explained as "spiritual retreat". More to come on this but it will also be when I begin my official '30 day clean out' although I feel in truth it began today!
