If you asked our friend and comrade Al Manning, “What’s new?” He would answer, “Me, I am always new and exciting!” This upbeat attitude is important to “keep on keeping on” with the pervasive many challenges of life. Every day is a new day with an opportunity to begin again.
The great wheel of Nature turns and the seasons change and we recently celebrated on
02-02-22 IMBOLC, a Celtic word meaning “in the belly.” This is one of the 8 Grove Festivals we celebrate at ESP LAB HQ. Now we look forward towards the coming of Spring!
Turn towards the light of self-compassion, my friends, Imbolc is the time of hope for new life and the return of the light. In the US, most people think of February 2nd as Groundhog Day, the portent of how many more weeks of winter are in store. However, for thousands of years, Imbolc, meaning “in the belly” was a sign of hope as there would be lambs born in the spring. In addition, they saw the noticeable signs that the days were lengthening.
The abundance of 2’s (2/2/2022) portends the possibility of harmony, balance and co-operation, according to numerology. In addition, 2 is also associated with adaptability, consideration,
co-existence and valuing relationships. This feels hopeful, even with COVID still with us.
