The Springtime Of Healing

stories

Life is an endless series of stories weaving and unweaving the very web of life as the vast collective unconscious.

Your story, my story, all stories. Each life is an amazing story filled with heart-break and ecstasy, sadness and tenderness. Spring is the season that tells the story of rebirth, resilience and vibrancy that keeps us motivated to continue on in our journey.

The Season Of The Heart

When we begin to see the signs of spring after a long winter, something inside of us starts to come alive like a seed. Our heart begins to beat with a new excitement. Suddenly everything feels new again.

Whatever bleakness or sadness one might be carrying in their heart surely dissolves in the aliveness of spring. Spring is a reminder of the true resilience of the spirit. We breathe this new life in with each and every breath. And before you know it, you’ve forgotten your sadness and have started to pursue a new vision. It’s funny how that works, and so endlessly utterly amazing!

Maybe you’ve fallen in love and are developing a new relationship. Perhaps you’ve started a new job or embarked on a new course of study. No matter what has sparked this new passion, it is a sure sign that the heart is alive and well. It is the beginning of a new story weaving itself as your life. It is an act of healing and regeneration.

A Time To Rediscover What Gives You Vibrancy

As each person goes through life there are hundreds, no, thousands of ups and downs, hills and valleys, highs and lows! We navigate them as best we can. We remember the ones that give our lives depth and meaning, and we let go of the experiences that we would rather forget. Truth is though, every experience contributes to the whole of our lives. None is without meaning. There are just those that we would rather forget. The ones we are not proud of. But in the long run, no one is judging. So, proud or not proud has no bearing.

We are given, over and over again, the opportunity to discover what gives our lives vibrancy, meaning and motivation. All you have to do is pose the question: What gives my life its greatest vibrancy, what gives my life passion? Sit with these questions for any length of time and you will feel like spring is coming to life inside your body! New ideas will sprout, new visions will emerge. You will keep on keeping on!

Share Your Story And Your Love For Life

With each new little spiritual rebirth our lives become enriched. We have stories to share of how we faced our challenges and overcame them. We have opportunities to tell others that we love them and opportunities to praise the ones we love.

It’s springtime! Let’s share our love and our victories as easily as the birds sing their songs with all their might. Let’s add our voices and our energies to the web of life. It’s so necessary. And each and every story has meaning. Yes, even yours!

Inspirational Storyteller, Speaker, Best-selling Author And Coach, Dr. Nina Kelly, Encourages Readers To Emulate The Essence Of Spring To Bring New Visions To Life

storytelling

Inspiring storyteller, writer and speaker, Dr. Nina Kelly uses the spring season to illustrate how individuals can generate excitement for their yet-to-be-lived dreams and follow the example set by nature to burst onto the scene in full bloom.

New Orleans, LA – May 16, 2019 – Dr. Nina M. Kelly, Inspirational Storyteller, Coach, Author and Co-Author of The Big Question with Larry King, and Success Mastery and Success Breakthroughs with Jack Canfield, recently posted a new blog on her website entitled, “Spring Shows Us How To Really Make An Entrance,” in which Dr. Kelly talks about preparing oneself to burst onto the scene of life.

Dr. Kelly writes, “Spring is the season that literally bursts onto the scene. It makes quite an entrance so to speak!” She adds, “With its vivid and various shades of greens – I mean, really, when you look around it’s hard to believe there could be so many different ‘greens’ – they are so subtle and difficult to describe.”

Dr. Kelly goes on to describe some of nature’s most colorful exhibitions, writing, “Blossoming trees in shades of pink and purples, lavender and lilac, yellows and reds enliven the air with color and luscious scents.” “There’s no real fanfare,” she says, “just a sense of excitement as the temperatures get a little warmer and the tiny buds start to appear on barren branches. The silence is alive with joyous anticipation of what’s to come.”

“Imagine for a moment that your life is moving into an eternal springtime,” invites Dr. Kelly. She continues, “Imagine that something is about to burst into being through you. A new vision of what you want your life to be is about to make an entrance.”

Spring Shows Us How To Really Make An Entrance

Spring

Spring is the season that literally bursts onto the scene.

It makes quite an entrance so to speak! With its vivid and various shades of greens. I mean, really, when you look around it’s hard to believe there could be so many different ‘greens’. They are so subtle and difficult to describe.

Blossoming trees in shades of pink and purple, lavender and lilac, yellows and reds enliven the air with color and luscious scents. There’s no real fanfare, just a sense of excitement as the temperatures get a little warmer and the tiny buds start to appear on barren branches. The silence is alive with joyous anticipation of what’s to come. Then there are the butterflies and birds. Oh the birds! The mockingbirds and mourning doves, the cardinals and the crows and the flocks of grazing ibis all so busy chirping, singing, winging on the energy of the coming season.

Imagine for a moment that your life is moving into an eternal springtime.

Imagine that something is about to burst into being through you. A new vision of what you want your life to be is about to make an entrance. Can you feel the excitement growing inside you? Can you feel your heart flutter and maybe even skip a bit in anticipation? What is that vision? Can you see it, and can you sense the way you feel when it comes into being?

Step outside of what feels familiar and envision some new and fascinating experience, you know the one I’m talking about, the one that has been urging you along for as long as you can remember. Take a lesson from the spring season. No fanfare is necessary, simply step into the experience you’ve been dreaming.

Inspirational Storyteller, Speaker, Best-selling Author And Coach, Dr. Nina Kelly, Invites Readers To Go Within And Determine If It’s Time For Some Internal Spring Cleaning

storytelling

Inspiring storyteller, writer and speaker, Dr. Nina Kelly compares the volatile transition of winter to spring to the turbulence and chaos that ensues when efforts are consciously made to change old habits that no longer serve to more positive behaviors.

New Orleans, LA – March 14, 2019 – Dr. Nina M. Kelly, Inspirational Storyteller, Coach, Author and Co-Author of The Big Question with Larry King, and Success Mastery and Success Breakthroughs with Jack Canfield, recently posted a new blog on her website entitled, “Weathering The Volatility Of Change.”

Dr. Kelly writes, “Spring is in the air, and then, it’s not! Winter is back. This is the volatile nature of the weather as we move from winter into spring.” She continues adding, “We can find that same chaotic volatility in our own human nature when we attempt to make deep and lasting changes. It’s not typically an easy task.”

“An invitation to change is often issued internally by the soul,” says Dr. Kelly, emphasizing that it is coming from, “our deepest nature.” “However,” she adds, “often change is dictated from external sources in your career or relationships. Many people either don’t recognize an invitation to change until they are “hit on the head” with it.” Dr. Kelly emphasizes, “Far too often we humans have to be confronted with some tragic event to open our eyes to the necessity of changing our behaviors. But, even for those who make conscious efforts to change, our old habits tend to dig in their heels resisting and rebelling against the desired change. Thus the expression, “Old habits die hard”. But, if you keep at it, the persistent, repeated efforts pay off.”

Weathering The Volatility Of Change

change

Spring is in the air, and then, it’s not!

Winter is back. This is the volatile nature of the weather as we move from winter into spring. We can find that same chaotic volatility in our own human nature when we attempt to make deep and lasting changes. It’s not typically an easy task.

An invitation to change is often issued internally by the soul, our deepest nature.

However, often change is dictated from external sources in your career or relationships. Many people either don’t recognize an invitation to change until they are “hit on the head” with it. Far too often we humans have to be confronted with some tragic event to open our eyes to the necessity of changing our behaviors. But, even for those who make conscious efforts to change, our old habits tend to dig in their heels resisting and rebelling against the desired change. Thus the expression, “Old habits die hard”. But, if you keep at it, the persistent, repeated efforts pay off.

Once a new habit takes root, you may begin to notice that other people around you seem changed too.

It is true that as we change the world around us changes. Our energy changes and therefore begins to attract kindred energy. So as we change from fear to love, we attract more loving people and experiences into our life.

I find the change of seasons an inspiring time to look within and determine if there are things in my life that could use cleaning up, refreshing, or need an out-and-out overhaul. I invite you to do a little spring cleaning in your own life too. By the time the gentle spring weather arrives as a steady stream of gorgeous days, your own heart and mind may be aligned to the newness of your desire as well.
