Spring Equinox: Planting seeds of potentiality

Yesterday, March 20th, was the Spring Equinox. Many Native American, pagan, and earth-based spiritual practices celebrate Spring Equinox as time of giving birth to new beginnings. The Lakota Sioux begin their year's cycle in the spring. They even enter the medicine wheel in the gate of the east which represents springtime.

I am viewing this Spring Equinox as a time to plant seed(s). A seed represents potentiality. It is an idea, an intention. It is something you want to unfold this coming year. So Spring Equinox is the perfect time to plant and awaken your vision for the coming year.

But before we plant, we have to be clear in what we are planting. That starts by asking yourself, "What is most important to me at this time in my life? What aspects of my life do I want to unfold." This is your intention. Only choose it if you are willing and able to fully commit to it.

Then it's time for the ceremonial planting. Take your intention and symbolically plant it in the earth. That is, take it from the concept that is in your mind and release it outside of yourself- so it can begin to interact and grow. This spring and summer, you will be watering and nurturing it. When the seedling breaks out of the ground, you will protect its vulnerability. You will water it and fertilize it- and pull weeds that come up around it. Until your plant grows strong. Until it reaps a harvest in the fall.

So this Spring Equinox (let's extend it to this week and this coming weekend), you owe it to yourself to get quiet and ask yourself what is really important to you this year. What is the dream you would like to make real? And then do something to symbolically plant that in the ground.

This weekend some friends and I will be doing on the beach in North San Diego County.  http://michaelhoffman.info/retreats/

We will be planting seeds. Feel free to join us in person or in spirit.
