Mindful Living by Becky, Chanting Stork Yoga: Crafting Your 2024 Journey

March is a month of celebration, a time when we pay homage to the nurturing essence of mothers, the bountiful energy of Mother Earth, and the divine power of Shakti.

At the heart of this month lies the convergence of the Spring Equinox and Mother’s Day, marking the onset of spring and the celebration of maternal love and resilience.

The Spring Equinox, occurring around March 20th, heralds the arrival of spring, a season of renewal and rejuvenation. As the Earth tilts on its axis, the length of day and night becomes equal, symbolizing balance and harmony. It’s a time when nature awakens from its winter slumber, bursting forth with vibrant colours and new life. The air is filled with the sweet scent of blossoms, and the melody of birdsong fills the air as trees bud and flowers bloom. The Spring Equinox reminds us of the cyclical nature of life, the eternal dance of birth, growth, and renewal.

In tandem with the Spring Equinox, March also honours mothers and motherhood through Mother’s Day celebrations. It’s a time to express gratitude for the unconditional love and support that mothers provide. Whether biological, adoptive, or maternal figures, mothers hold a special place in our hearts, nurturing us with their boundless affection and guiding us with their wisdom.

In the realm of spirituality, March is also a month dedicated to honouring Shakti, the divine feminine energy that permeates the universe. Shakti represents the creative force behind all existence, the primordial power that gives birth to galaxies, sustains life, and fuels the cosmic dance of creation and destruction. As we celebrate Mother’s Day and the Spring Equinox, we also pay homage to the divine mother and the inexhaustible energy of Shakti, acknowledging the interconnectedness of all life and the profound bond between humanity and nature.

Let’s also reflect and embody on our profound connection to the natural world. With an affirmation you can repeat to yourself throughout the month:
“I am grateful for the cycle of life, the ability to love and the immense beauty of this world”.

May this month be a time of joy and gratitude, for the beauty and abundance that surrounds us, both in the external world and within the depths of our own hearts.
