Today begins the Spring Equinox, where day and night are almost equal. It embodies the beginning of the thawing of winter and the blooming of the flora and fauna all around us. It is not only the start of sunnier days and warmer surroundings, but also a release from the darker and quieter days and nights of winter. This shift into an awakening of nature is a time to rejoice in the growth and beauty of the world, noticing the songs of the birds, the blossoming of the flowers and trees, and the celebration of new life. This cycle of life is not a coincidence, but a wonderful natural happening that brings us back to the sacred and spiritual part of life opening all of us to the incredible healing power of the earth and the elements that surround us.
During this time of re-balancing back to nature it is wise to take a moment and embrace the changes happening around you. The use of essential oils is an incredible way to enhance and embrace this time of transition. Here are a few suggestions to find focus, grounding, and allow for the mind to find quietness. Mediation is a great way to sooth the senses and calms the central nervous system as well. To begin, sit in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Breathing in and out slowly through your nose, fill your abdomen fully with your breath. Slow, deep, steady, even breathes - without sound and without pause are the qualities of great breath, not only for mediation, but also throughout your day. Remember we are letting go of our thoughts, so acknowledge your thoughts and let them go without expectation. See how long you can sit, and slowly increase the time in which you sit gradually as you begin to build a meditation practice over time. Notice how quiet your mind becomes and how much clarity you can find from taking the time to sit peacefully. Aromatherapy can help you relax into your meditations easing the distractions around us.
Try one of these blends in your diffuser during meditation:
To increase Focus: 4 drops Rosemary, 3 drops Lime, 3 drops grapefruit
To quiet the Mind: 4 drops Himalayan Cedar wood, 2 drops Patchouli, 4 drops Australian sandalwood
Attitude of Gratitude to ground the body and soul: 2 drops Bergamot, 3 drops Myrrh, 5 drops sweet orange
