Spring is finally here and with that, comes the Spring Equinox. If you are looking for ways to celebrate this momentous occasion, we have got you covered. To harness the power of these new beginnings and truly welcome this new season, here is our list of ways you can prepare for spring. 

What Is The Spring Equinox?

The spring equinox is also known as the vernal equinox. This astronomical event occurs only twice a year in the Northern Hemisphere. The equinox is when the sun crosses the celestial equator and moves from south to north. This magnificent event signifies the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. So, how do we prepare for it?

Prepare For The Spring Equinox

If you are ready to shake off those winter blues and welcome the spring equinox with open arms, then you will need to start by preparing your space and mind. The Equinox is nature's big balancing act and allows us to truly embrace the arrival of spring.

Celebrate Renewal

Before beginning, acknowledge that the Spring Equinox is a time of balance and renewal. You may want to bring some of nature inside with you, such as flowers or greenery, to honour the energy of the season.

Comfortable Setting

Choose a quiet, serene spot where you won’t be disturbed. Make the area comfortable with pillows and blankets, perhaps near an open window to let in the fresh spring air.

Deep Breaths

Sit or lie down in a relaxed position. Close your eyes, and start taking deep, mindful breaths. Inhale freshness and renewal, exhale any stagnation or winter weariness.

Setting Your Equinox Intention

With a new season comes new intentions. We want to enter spring with a fresh mind and be open to new beginnings. Before entering spring, it's important to allow the universe to understand what we want from this new path by setting intentions. 

Clear Your Mind

Let go of the day's thoughts and focus inward. The equinox is a perfect time to balance your inner world with the outer renewal happening in nature.

Equinox Intention

Set an intention for your session that aligns with spring's themes of growth and renewal. You might choose something like, "With this equinox, I invite balance and new energy into my sleep."

Equinox Self-Reiki Session

Reiki can help us open our hearts to what this new season can bring. Reiki is a wonderful tool to help us open our minds to the opportunities and blessings that the new season can bring.

Begin with Your Heart

Place your hands gently over your heart. Envision the equinox energy as a vibrant, balancing light entering your body, soothing and aligning your heart with the rhythm of spring.

Channel Healing

Imagine the life force of the spring equinox flowing through your hands—warm, nurturing, and full of potential. Visualise this energy as a soft green light, renewing every cell for a night of restful sleep.

Move Intuitively

As you connect intuitively with the universal life-force energy of Reiki, allow your hands to move to areas that seek attention, perhaps your forehead to calm the mind, or your abdomen to soothe digestion. Spend time at each area, inviting the renewing energies of the equinox, and the reiki energy, to facilitate healing and relaxation.

Release Your Thoughts

After you’ve covered all desired areas, rest your hands comfortably. Feel a sense of gratitude for the healing process and the balance brought by the equinox.

Closing Your Equinox Meditation

To close your mediation this Equinox, it's important to ground yourself and ease back into your day-to-day life.

Ground Yourself

Visualise roots growing from your body into the earth, connecting you to its stability and strength. Let this connection ground the new energy you’ve cultivated.

Reflect on Renewal

In the spirit of the equinox, quietly reflect on what balance and renewal mean to you. How can these elements support your journey to better sleep and overall well-being?

Ease Back

Gently open your eyes, bringing movement back to your body. Take a deep, refreshing breath of spring air, if possible, and carry the calmness and balance into your preparation for sleep.

Embrace the Night

Drink water to stay hydrated and aid the body's natural rejuvenation processes during sleep. Maintain a journal to note any insights or improvements in your sleep quality as you welcome the energy of spring.

Burning sage

Tip: If you are someone who struggles with visualisation, you can state clearly your intentions, this will bring about the same effectiveness.

This equinox-focused self-Reiki meditation is designed to align your inner energy with the season's themes of balance and renewal, supporting a transition into rejuvenating sleep that mirrors the rejuvenation happening in Mother Nature.
