Cycling with the Seasons | VIDEO

I’m from Los Angeles California. And now I live in New England. Yes, the change has been tough. Living in LA, for the most part, means the same weather, the same sunshine, and not really knowing whether it’s October or March – at least in terms of the weather. Living in New England is a polar opposite of that. The seasons are obvious, drastic, and the shift in the time they’re “supposed” to. Although the winters here are tough, I’ve learned to do my best to cycle with the seasons. Finding my way through my daily life while synchronizing my behaviors, my mental state, and my meals to correlate with the shifting in the weather.


Spiritual Significance: Winter is the time when all of the natural world goes into hibernation. From the wildlife, to the greenery and blossoms on the trees. This is a time for introspection, isolation, and reflection.

How I Cycle With It: During the winter I do a lot of quiet activities alone. This is when I do a lot of journaling, knitting, and reflecting on the past. This is when I take an honest look at all of the things in my life and decide whether or not I want to bring them into my future with me. This is when I set intentions and plan for the coming seasons.


  • Spiritual Significance: The significance of Spring is obvious. Rebirth, renewal; the trees and the animals all come out of hibernation with vibrance and persistence. This symbolizes growth, expansion, and all of the intentions set coming to fruition and action taken toward them.


  • How I Cycle With It: During spring I take all of my intentions and put them into action. This is when my visualizations turn into manifestations. This is when I have let go of the things that no longer serve me, I have closed out cycles, and I’m ready for the rebirth and renewal of all aspects of myself, within myself.


  • Spiritual Significance: Summer is a time of vitality, abundance, joy, youthfulness, and playfulness. Summer is the time that is very action focuses – yet most action is focused on enjoying the abundance that has come about from the intentions you set in the quiet of Winter, and the birth of them during the Spring.


  • How I Cycle With It: Summer is time to party it up and to build off of the momentum of Spring! Summer is where I get in touch with the Earth, place my bare feet on the ground, spend lots of time near bodies of water, and enjoy the fruits of my labor! In the summertime all of my favorite produce is bountiful and the abundance and joy I have created is too.


  • Spiritual Significance: Fall is the time to give thanks and be grateful for the previous seasons. Fall is the time when nature gives it’s last hoorah. With a burst of beautiful colors from the trees and the sun slowly dwindling both in intensity and in longevity… it’s when you can take a look back and see what you’ve learned.


  • How I Cycle With It: I enjoy the beauty of fall and give gratitude and give thanks for all that I have learned and experienced over the last year. In the Fall I take the lessons, take stock of what I have accomplished in anticipation of the coming winter months where I will be able to set new intentions, elaborate on the intentions from the year prior, or simply introspect and find my center.
