It’s official! Spring has sprung this morning and while there may still be snow on the ground, we can see peeks of the new season. Time to shed the last of winter and focus our energies on transformation, both inner and outer. Consider Spring Equinox a powerful time to review the past few months, release what is not working, and set new intentions for the year ahead. Are you ready for the liberation of Spring?
We have some Spring Bliss Practices that will help you welcome the new season and don’t forget to check out our new Wake Up! Morning Bliss Practices free online course. Inspiration, breath, yoga, meditation, tarot, crystal grids, and more await the fresh start of your mornings!

“Meditate” on the Hare Goddess in Her divine chocolate form as the Easter Bunny.

Have a Spring celebration to dye eggs for everyone to take home and use for their altars. Use all natural dye for the eggs (example: beet juice is for red eggs, turmeric is for yellow, blueberry juice is for blue eggs).
Walk a labyrinth to embrace the cyclical nature of Goddess and the Seasons – contemplate the lessons of Winter and how you are being called to integrate those lessons into the creation of Spring. Use the labyrinth locator to find one near you!
Go barefoot and stretch out on Gaia. Allow Her energy to energize you! Spring reading: Earthing
Spend some time with babies, children, baby animals – see the world through eyes of wonder and joy.
Create a Nature Mandala – use all natural and organic items, such as seeds, flowers, sticks, and stones, and food for the animals.
Use crystals to create a grid for your health, wellness, and renewal, or any intention. Wake Up! Morning Bliss Practices is a free course on Seeking Bliss EveryDay and healer, Sara Monserrat Teixido shares her crystal grid practice and a guided meditation. Below is her grid to release and heal.
Adorn a Wishing Tree – write wishes and prayers on ribbons to tie on a special tree. Make sure the ribbons are loose enough for the tree branches to grow!
