"Whatever you can do,
Or dream you can do,
Boldness has genius, power,
and magic in it!”
~ Goethe ~
Spring Equinox, or Ostara, is a magical time of year when we have a balance of darkness and light. It's time for visualization, belief in magic, recognizing miracles, focusing on our spiritual practice, planting seeds, and releasing the old to make space for the new.
A powerful way to embrace the power of the Spring Equinox is to orchestrate a ritual for yourself, invite others if it feels right, set some intentions, and release - finally - the stuff that keeps tripping you up and blocking you from having the life you truly desire.
We’re already feeling the effects of Wednesday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse focusing this time on relationships; our connections with people, our bodies, our health, our work. Some relationships will come to an end, and others will flourish.
Here are 3 ways to take advantage of the power of this Spring Equinox:
1. We all have something in our lives that is no longer serving our highest good. It might be someone who you’re just not connecting with or feeling inspired or supported by anymore, or perhaps it’s an old habit or belief that has been hard for you to shake but continues to cause you unhappiness or anxiety.
Write it down. Meditate on it. Hold the intention of releasing it for the highest good of all involved. Send love and light to the situation, and then burn it while visualizing it floating up to your Angels for healing. Let it go once and for all, and you will feel lighter, and more open to hold space for all that is fresh and new.
2. Find a quiet spot and create a little Altar with all of the things you love. Grab your crystals, your journal, your Ganesha, the photo of the person you love or respect most in the world, your sage, your Mala, your essential oils, your favourite book, and your vision board. Whatever brings you joy and makes you feel grounded. Bringing your special items together creates a beautiful, sacred space and a powerful meditation and relaxation area of your home.
3. Grab your journal and write. Light a candle, put some oils in your diffuser, put on your favourite meditative playlist. You can begin with all the things you’re grateful for. Then create a list of all the things you will manifest. Write down what you want your life to look like - and be as specific as possible - as if you already have it. You can add some images, some colour - get creative! This process is an incredibly powerful way to get clear on what you want. And once you have clarity, once you have articulated your dreams, then begin.
Everything you want to manifest is waiting for you. This I know for sure. You just have to get clear, trust that everything is being divinely orchestrated, trust that you are supported, and BEGIN.
Wishing you a magical Ostara.
