The Paradigm Awakening

As the sun rises just to the right of my office window, I hear the song of birds in the distance. They sing a song of perfection; Free of worry or sorrow. Their song reminds me of a forest glad where life is free of worry and concern.

Where are you with your inner paradigm this Spring? Many people feel stuck in the winter and sad because of the constant darkness. Their "Paradigm" or thought process may be ignore and dark, leading them on though journeys that feel bad, make them sad or cover them with physical illness.

Spring is always a good time to explore the depths of your mind, down into the subconscious, to pull out weeds from your garden of hope and serenity. When our garden is filled with weeds and icky creatures it is hard to see light or anything positive. We are going to take a journey now into your subconscious mind and awakened the sleeping strengths, beliefs and resources that are buried in the catacombs.

Curious as to what is inside of the cave, you take a step inside and immediately notice the darkness and wet chill are similar to the winter you just came out of. The chill on your skin begins to make you want to run back to the entrance and head home, but you are determined to go further. You step deeper into the cave and hear what looks like a baby crying in the darkness.This was the strangest sound. To the left there is a dim light and this light seems to be near the area where you hear a baby crying.

As if to look through thick fog you see a scene in the background. You begin to remember a time when you were a child when your father, who worked in a coal mine, was screaming at your mother because he
