Retreat … Retreat!!!

There are times in my life when I feel a strong pull to go “undercover”.  It is as if I am a caterpillar being called into my own personal cocoon.  I am at such a point right now.  As February came to an end, the pull to “retreat” got stronger and stronger until I knew I couldn’t resist it any more.  And as if I needed one additional reminder/spark of clarity, I received confirmation that it was time to go inward, when speaking to someone and they kept using the word “Retreat”.  Needless to say, I got it!  “I hear you God” is all I could say.  So, I informed family and friends that I would be “going under” for the month of March.  When asked “why”, all I knew was that I had to and that was enough for me! My loved ones provided me with necessary supplies for my journey:  Space, Time, Love, and Support.  Knowing that I will emerge better than when I went “in”.

Over the years, I have found that as I move to the “next level” on my life’s journey, I am called to go inward before returning out to the world.  It is as if I must “power-up” by unplugging from the rest of the world and tapping into and making a direct and unfiltered connection the Universe.

During this month of fortification, I recognize the need to devote time to meditate and take care of my spiritual needs so that I can be fortified and continue to live by the spirit as well as encourage others to do the same.  So in this month of March, before I “March and Spring into Spring”, I will Retreat, sit back, recharge, get clarity, and be strengthened by the Spirit.

My hope is that when your internal trumpet sounds, and you are called to “retreat”, that you take the time to heed the call.  During that time, do what needs to be done to strengthen your connection with Spirit whether it is through daily prayer, meditation, establishing an uninterrupted “sacred space and time”, journaling or some expressed creativity.  May you emerge this month stronger, wiser, and Fortified by the Spirit.

God Bless and continue to Live by the Spirit.

In the Spirit of sharing and helping others, share with us the ways in which you fortify your Spirit.
