Happy Spring Equinox, fam! Today marks the season of new beginnings within the northern hemisphere. Not only is today the first day of spring for us, but it is also the full super moon AND the start of the new astrological new year! Talk about a lot of renewal and rejuvenation energy flowing through right now. Tis' the season to BLOOM!
I want to share with you some of my most favorite alignment practices and rituals to perform during this time of the year, so that you have some tools to integrate into your own business and life that will help to create space for whatever it is you want to be growing. You can do these rituals and practices in any way that best supports you; don't hesitate to modify or change them to your liking! Allow intuition to guide you and creativity to activate you in implementing them in whatever way feels best.
With the Libra Super Full Moon and astrological new year energy, this is a really good time to get mighty clear on what you want to purge and release in relation to the last year. You may be feeling some of that new year energy right now... you know, the kind of energy that is making you feel ready to start new things, make quantum leaps, and fully commit to cultivating your goals. If thats the case, lean in to that energy full force and allow it to have your back as you flow into what excites you! A big theme within this astrological new year is BALANCE, so along with reflecting on what you are ready to purge, also think about what or where you are feeling the need to call in balance. Remember: Everything in its divine timing. Sometimes, it is our season to prioritize and focus on one specific area of our business or lives that will, in turn, create harmony within all areas of our businesses and lives. Even if you are in the state of wanting to prioritize one specific area, its still important to call in balance throughout. Don't let anything go unattended or neglected! Think about what matters most to you, what season you are in in terms of what you are prioritizing, and then consider how you can still maintain balance within all areas of your life. Need help here?

So, with saying all that, let's talk about Spring Equinox practices and rituals, shall we?!
Here's a list of things you can try out to welcome in the new season. If you come up with any questions about anything listed, feel free to reach out and get some support!
Spring Equinox Rituals
-earth meditation: A grounding meditation that focuses on reconnecting with mama earth.
-re-birthing rituals: breath work for releasing and calling in new, inner child activities that bring out your wild, imaginative essence, or energetic clearing and realigning practices that allow you to release the old and welcome the new.
-altar decorating: Setting up a sacred space where you can perform your daily alignment practices. Decorating with things that remind you of growth, rejuvenation, renewal, and expansion is great! Think: Flowers, earth materials, bright colors, etc.
-sun salutations: Its recommended to do 108 sun salutations with every new season, but obviously thats a lot of sun salutations! So, simply pick a number that really resonates with you (I love the numbers 11, 22, 33, and 77 and find a lot of alignment with them) and get your sun salutation on! Using movement as medicine is a great way to welcome in a new season.
-Incorporating plants: If you know me you know I am a total #plantlady, and this is so my season because it is a time to embrace plants, gardening, planting things, and so on. This is a great time to grab yourself some plants or seedlings and get green thumb activated! Think about what it is you want to plant within yourself, too! This is a beautiful time to think of the analogy of choosing your seeds (intentions), choosing the environment to which you want to plant your seeds (alignment), clearing the soil (releasing and de-programming), and then planting the seed and beginning to nurture and cultivate it (your inspired actions).
-cleanse/clear/clean (inner and outer): This is so the season of spring cleaning within and around you! Think about what it is you are ready to purge, clear and clean within yourself and within your environments, and get to work! This can mean shedding habits that no longer serve you, this could mean shedding external things that dont represent this next level you are stepping into, etc.
-nature and earthing: Getting out in nature, depending on where you live and what the weather is like, is one of the best ways to welcome in Spring. Earthing is one of my most favorite things to do, where you simply get outside, barefoot, and allow yourself to receive energetic charges from mama earth.
-gratitude and appreciation frenzies: With the welcoming of an astrological new year, this is a fantastic time to lean into gratitude and appreciation. To do an appreciation frenzy, you can simply give yourself space to spill all that which you are grateful and appreciative of that can come into your consciousness. Allow all levels of gratitude to come forth...allow yourself to feel a sense of wholeness....allow yourself to notice your enoughness in the now....and let the gratitude fill you up!
-celebrate: Reflect on the year and write a 'Letter as your future self', where you write as the YOU a year from now, scripting all the things that have unfolded from now until one year out. This is an awesome way to predict and align with the energy and intentions you want to see unfold and a wonderful way to get crazy excited about all the potential this new season holds! #thankyoumoreplease
