Embracing Renewal: Preparing for the Spring Equinox

Updated: Mar 3

As the calendar turns to March, we approach a significant moment in the celestial calendar - the Vernal Equinox, happening on Tuesday, March 19th, 2024. The term "Vernal," meaning "of the spring," "new," and "fresh," combined with "Equinox," derived from the Latin words aequus (equal) and nox (night), beautifully encapsulate this time of equilibrium and renewal.


On the Spring Equinox, we experience a rare balance of day and night, with equal amounts of light and dark on the same day. This event symbolizes not just the change of seasons but also a profound moment for reflection, rebirth, and rejuvenation. It's a time to celebrate the freshness of life, elevate our energy, regenerate abundance, and manifest our dreams. At Divinity Studio, we honor this transitional period by inviting you to engage in self-care practices and spiritual wellness activities designed to harmonize with this season of new beginnings.


Reflect and Release

This time of year is perfect for introspection and setting new intentions. Reflect on the past months - the growth, the challenges, and the victories. Consider what habits, beliefs, or situations you're ready to release, and what you'd like to invite into your life moving forward. Engage in meditation or Kundalini yoga to facilitate this process of letting go and welcoming new energies, both offered at our studio to support your journey of self-discovery. Here are two journal prompts designed to inspire introspection and planning around the themes of renewal, growth, and balance that are central to the Spring Equinox, encouraging a deep, personal engagement with this transformative season.


  1. What habits, relationships, or goals do you want to refresh or start anew? Describe how you can align these changes with the energy of renewal that spring brings. Consider the steps you can take to foster growth, balance, and rejuvenation in these areas of your life.

  2. What intentions do you want to set for the coming season? Think about the areas of personal growth you wish to cultivate and how you can nurture these intentions to fruition. How can engaging with the natural world, such as spending time in nature or eating seasonally, support your journey toward realizing these intentions?


Cleanse and Nourish Your Body

As the Spring Equinox unfolds, it invites us to not only refresh our spirits but also to rejuvenate our bodies with the bounty of the season. Embracing a diet rich in vibrant, in-season produce not only revitalizes our system but also aligns our eating habits with the natural cycle of renewal. This is a perfect time to explore local farmers' markets and support our community's growers, discovering the freshest and most nourishing foods the season has to offer. Spring’s harvest includes a variety of in-season produce such as leafy greens like spinach and kale, crisp radishes, tender asparagus, sweet strawberries, and aromatic herbs, each offering their own health benefits and flavors.

Connect with Nature

The Spring Equinox is a celebration of the Earth's awakening. Take time to immerse yourself in the beauty of the emerging season. Engaging with nature through simple acts can deepen your connection to the natural world and the cycles that guide our existence. Consider incorporating some of these activities into your routine to honor this time of renewal:

  • Walking barefoot on the grass: Feel the earth beneath your feet and connect with its grounding energy.

  • Gardening: Plant new seeds or tend to your garden, engaging with the cycle of growth and renewal.

  • Make a fairy garden: Create a small sanctuary in your garden or home that invites the whimsy and magic of nature spirits.

  • Sungazing: Practice sungazing by looking towards the horizon as the sun rises or sets, soaking in the colors and energy of the sun at its most gentle.

  • Take daily walks and enjoy the warmth: Witness the beauty and tranquility of the wildlife reappearing, and nature unfolding while embracing the opportunity for peace amid every-day busyness.


Embrace Renewal Through Affirmations

As we align with the regenerative energy of the Spring Equinox, affirmations serve as potent verbal or mental declarations to support our intentions, foster positive mindset shifts, and cultivate an environment for growth and abundance. Here are several affirmations to embrace during this season of new beginnings. Feel encouraged to use these affirmations as part of your daily routine or within your meditation and yoga practices to enhance their impact:


  • "I am open to new beginnings and embrace the renewal of my spirit." This affirmation welcomes the fresh energy of spring and the opportunities it brings.

  • "With each breath, I plant the seeds of positivity and growth in my life." Use this affirmation to remind yourself of the power of your thoughts and words in nurturing your intentions.

  • "I release what no longer serves me and make space for new blessings." This helps in letting go of past limitations or negative patterns, making room for positive changes.

  • "Balance flows through every aspect of my being; I am grounded and centered." A perfect affirmation to embody the equilibrium of the Equinox, promoting inner harmony.

  • "I am connected to the vibrant energy of nature and welcome its healing." This reinforces your bond with nature, recognizing its role in your wellbeing and rejuvenation.

  • "Abundance surrounds me; I am open to receive the gifts of the universe." Encourage a mindset of abundance, allowing yourself to receive prosperity and joy.

  • "My heart is open to new adventures, relationships, and opportunities for growth." This affirmation invites the courage to explore and welcome new experiences that contribute to your personal expansion.

Manifesting with Vision Boarding

As we welcome the energy of renewal and balance that the Spring Equinox brings, vision boarding emerges as a powerful tool to visualize and manifest your dreams and intentions for the season ahead. This creative process allows you to articulate your desires, goals, and aspirations through a tangible and inspiring visual format. By selecting images, words, and symbols that resonate with your visions for personal growth, wellness, relationships, or career aspirations, you create a personalized beacon of motivation and clarity.


Cultivating Balance and Community Connection

As we embrace the Spring Equinox, a time rich with the themes of balance and renewal, it presents a perfect opportunity to reflect on our lives' equilibrium and how we connect with those around us. Practices such as 'spring cleaning' as a form of meditation, or ceremony circles can be a valuable way to achieve a sense of inner balance, guiding us toward peace and mindfulness that can profoundly transform our daily experiences. These practices not only support our journey toward equilibrium but also prepare us to engage more deeply with our community.


In tandem with personal practices of balance, our studio offers sound healing sessions that provide a unique communal experience to align with the season's energy of growth and renewal. These sessions utilize the transformative power of vibration to clear energetic blockages and foster a deeper sense of well-being and connection. Participating in these gatherings amplifies our individual intentions for the spring, leveraging the collective energy to enhance our sense of connectedness and support.

From yoga to meditation, Kundalini to sound healing in Lincoln California, we offer a nurturing space for self-care, exploration, and connection.
