It's time to clean up, clear up and move out the old and stale to make room for the coming Spring. If you're feeling stuck and not feeling the joy of renewal, it may be some blockages that have begun to stagnate around you. It's time for a literal and figurative Spring cleaning!
Do a physical cleaning.
Look around your living areas and workstation. Step back and REALLY look at it. Objectively, what do you observe? No judgment, just make a note of what you are seeing. Is it orderly and neat, clean and tidy? Or something less than that?
Even if you don't have time for a deep clean, straighten up the clutter. Put things away and give it a dusting and vac to give a spit polish!
Sage That Sh&t Outta There!
Drag out your sage, open up the windows, turn on the fan and sage the heck out of the space. Get that old stale funk out of there. Once you're done smudging, burn some incense to bring in the good juju.
Bundle up and get outside! Take a hike in the woods. Visit a body of water (traditional Imbolc ritual) or spruce up your yard in prep for Spring. As my mom would say "get outside and blow the stink off ya'!" Good advice.
Now that your space is tidied up, the smudging is done and you've gotten outside for a bit it's time for your ritual. Write down on paper what's blocking your sense of excitement about Spring. Take a moment and really think about it. Use a separate note for each item.
Once you've written down what's blocking you, fold each note and hold it in your hand one at a time. Pick the affirmation that most fits your issue from the list below. As you hold the note, repeat that affirmation(s) until you feel resolved and at peace about the issue. Tear up the note and toss the pieces in your safe, fireproof burning bowl (or firepit). Repeat for each issue you want to leave behind you.
Light a candle and take a moment to envision the blockage breaking up and dissipating. FEEL the joy, satisfaction, and relief from free-flowing energy. Once you have finished each limiting issue and rejoiced in the removal of the blockage, burn the notes with the old issues. Feel the frustration, pain, sorrow, or sadness from each limiting belief floating away, releasing you to a clear state of being. Feel the joy, relief, and satisfaction of Spring's renewal of life.
Here are some suggested affirmations and statements. Feel free to create your own.
I release the past. The past releases me. I am free.
I open my eyes and look around. I observe how Life always finds a way to renew itself. I am full of life and therefore available for that same renewal at all levels of my life. I look to nature and the Divine to show me the way.
I rejoice in the knowledge I am being renewed.
I am now free to enjoy perfect prosperity.
I choose to live peacefully moment-to-moment. I rejoice in knowing that is how I contribute to worldwide peace.
