This is part of a new series of mindfulness prompts that are based in Métis teachings. Each weekly post will be an image specifically designed to fit the lock-screen on your phone. The idea is that you can make mindfulness easy, effective and beautiful all at the same time. Placing each new image on your lock screen will hopefully keep it in the front of your mind and allow you enough time to lean into the learning.

Spring is the time when the Thunder Beings return to our land.  Thunder Beings are said to have the power to give life, but also take it away. They can destroy with the wind, cause flood and drought, or burn with lightening; but at the same time, they can also renew and bring the vital rains and nurture all life on earth.  There are many lessons to be learned from the Thunder Beings, one such lesson is the state of our own energies.  How do you use your energy to give life, to renew and nurture? How do you use your energy to destroy life?
