Spring is in the Air.....
Ah!! SPRING!!! Flowers are blooming. Birds are singing. There's a spark of hope in the air.
Winter is gone. And Spring is sprung.
The first day of Spring on March 20, is also called Ostara and also the vernal (or Spring) equinox.
It is ..... A time of new growth. Of fresh beginnings. On that day we will have 12 hoursof daylight and 12 hours of darkness.
And for this reason it is called an EQUINOX!
The first day of Spring is observed in different ways in many parts of the world. In Japan, spring is a big celebration focused on family and all living things. In Mexico, the sun serpeant is welcomed. And in other countries like India and Turkey, it marks the beginning of a new year. In the U.S., we often associate the beginning of Spring with fresh flowers, birds singing and a cleaning of our homes. You know the kind of cleaning where you really get into all the nooks and crannies. Time to get rid of clutter. When you are done, go ahead and clear the energy by smudging your home with sage, incense or by using essence oils. Turn up the music. Open the windows. Move. Dance. Sing outloud. Organize your apace. Change out the decorations. Add a wreath on the front door that contains a burst of flowers. Change your front door mat. Change your bed linens for something softer. Plant new flowers. Add new plants indoors. Get outside. Enjoy nature. Go for a bike ride. Take a hike. Look for an outdoor festival. Bring Spring inside with an essential oil diffuser. Practice yoga or tai chi outside. Find some new activities in your hometown. Take a long hot bath and let yourself just relax. Begin to think of how you can be more creative. Meditate on this new beginning.
Spring is in the Air. Let's go deeper in a group meditation. Great for new and seasoned meditators.
