Tomorrow's Spring Equinox arrives in a rare cosmic event with a Supermoon + Solar eclipse. The earth will be bathed in powerful healing energy. Use this time to renew, reset + rejuvenate. Spring Equinox is a time when day and night - light and dark -- are equal.
The earth will balance itself. And it does this every year. For you without you even asking or knowing! But this year, the heavens are giving us an extraordinary gift and lift with the combined energies of a solar eclipse and a Supermoon. Moon. Sun. Earth. Need I say more my beloveds?
In life's journey, rituals are not only necessary they are urgent. And they heal. Rituals are ancient. Listen to that divine wisdom within and create something that works for you.
My ritual: I began last year the practice of welcoming the first light of spring practicing yoga. I am going to a yoga class at the ambrosial hour that begins with a meditation at 4:30 am to welcome the rising sun with a community of like minded souls.
Practice a ritual. Start a ritual. This is your life. It's precious. Create. Love. Inspire. Give back. Welcome joy, bliss + harmony in your life my friends.
If you don't want to leave your house that early, create a space in your home to welcome spring and start a ritual.
Light an incense,
Make a cup of warm water with the juice of a whole lemon. Add honey to taste.
Have a journal and pen next to you.
Sit comfortably, crossed legged (if that works for you) spine straight, tailbone to the earth. (if sitting on floor doesn't work, try a chair, or lie on a mat in Savasana
Hands to heart center in prayer or in a mudra that works on the chakra you want to be intentional about. I love the Heart Chakra mudra.
Close your eyes
Breathe deeply. Release slowly. Again. Hold for a three seconds. Slowly release.
Chant OM, Amen,
You can listen to this beautiful Gayatri Mantra by Deva Premal while you meditate. This is an ancient Indian mantra - 9,000 years old. It's a prayer to the Goddess Mother Earth. She will protect, heal you and anyone who hears this for miles will receive the blessing.
Visualize yourself being bathed in the powerful energy emanating from the earth below and from the heavens above. Light, Love, Sweetness. Joy. Peace.
After this gentle 30 minute mediation, you can begin a yoga practice if you have one.
Or, lie in Child's Pose, then Savasana for as long as you need.
Gently sit up again.
Write, draw, sing your goals and dreams you want manifested.
Namaste. In Lakesh.
