Tonight Wife and I went to a restorative yoga class. It was actually a combination of restorative yoga poses, aromatherapy, sound vibration, and Reiki. It was awesome. The leaders talked a lot before class about the upcoming change of seasons. Friday marks the beginning of Spring, lined up with the equinox and the transition into a new moon (in Pisces this year). It is a time for change, new beginnings, and focus. It is also a time to emerge out of the depths that Winter pushes us into and begin a season of growth and rebirth. Ultimately, they said, it is the time for new starts (although they warned us that things may move quickly, so be careful what you wish for!).
All of this reminded of a song I love, which I want to share with you. It’s called “Now Is The Start” by A Fine Frenzy. Some of the lyrics really speak to how I’m feeling about my transition away from Zooey and towards the therapist, such as:
Do you hear, do you hear that sound?
It’s the sound of the lost gone found.
It’s the sound of a mute gone loud.
It’s the sound of a new start…”
I really think that the “Zooey chapter” of my life is finally closing. I feel myself shifting more towards true closure every day. I know the grief will continue to work it’s way out in various cycles, but for the most part I am ready to let go and begin the new chapter of my healing journey.
Now is the start.
