This ritual can be done anytime during the first couple weeks of spring, but is especially potent during the week of the Spring Equinox which falls on March 20th this year (2019). It does require some pre-planning, although you could do this all "symbolically" with visualization.
Gather your materials around you so you can go right into the exercise after your meditation.
Sit quietly and allow your energy to settle into the magic of opening up your ritual. Call in your angels and guides to support you and be with you through this practice.
Set the intention for three words to come to you that you want to cultivate this season. What do you want to have bloom in your life?
Write those three words down.
Each succulent represents the words that you are welcoming into your life.
Before you transplant the succulents into your terra cotta pot, unleash your creativity and paint the pot in a way that embodies the words you chose. Whether that is going crazy with color or simply painting the words on the front, trust yourself and remember- it's not supposed to be perfect!
Prepare your terra cotta pot with the organic potting soil. As you put the soil in, think about how grateful you are for mother earth. Feel the love from your heart, travel through your hands and into the soil.
One by one, hold the succulent in your hands and think about the word you've assigned to that succulent. As you plant the succulent, think about what the word embodied and manifested into your life looks like.
As you continue to care for your succulents, you'll be caring for your dreams. Take time daily to ground in their energy and hope for what is ahead.
