Taking care of our spirit is something that we as moms tend to put off..I know I do. During spring I like to take some extra me time and focus on my spiritual connection to the all. Reconnecting is always a deep experience.
-Take time to ponder how you are a goddess… that you are a mother and a creator of life…a vessel of love and a care taker. Feel the goddess pumping through your veins and treat yourself as such.
-Take a ritual bath. Cleanse your spirit by bathing in sea salt and focusing on all the bad stuff going down the drain. Anoint yourself with essential oils after, using your favorite flower oil.
-Sprinkle and smudge yourself and home. Concentrate on getting out all the negative energy in your home and the sea salt and water washing it away and the smoke working to clean it.
-Spiritually Sweep/besom your home. Focus on getting all the bad stuff just cleaned out of your house. Start at a door and work around your home room to room in one direction until you finally sweep out all the old energy out the door you started.
-Make time each day to Meditate. Take time to contemplate the wonders of spring.
-Set up a spring altar. Include eggs and flowers and and even pictures of your children and or small animals.
– Dye and Paint eggs with your kids with sygils or important spiritual symbols of your family.
-Plan a spring feast…Plan to celebrate Ostara, Easter, Spring Equinox…Maybe even Beltaine…But plan to do a feast to honor spring with your whole family. For me growing up I always associated spring with my grandma making the pizzagaina, so that might be what our meal is built around in our family.
-Have a Spring fling… Take extra time to flirt with that certain someone special and be reminded of the fertility of spring.
