Spring is a time of renewal and you can feel the life force blooming in every cell of your body, yet the New Moon encourages us to remain inward. The cosmos are calling us to nourish ourselves, and to connect with our deepest wisdom.
As spring emerges from the winter void, we are invited to focus on our inner landscape, and in doing so, we discover our truths and deepest desires. Being in this connected space offers us a time to discern how we want to show up in the world moving forward.
It is in the fertile ground of spring that we plant the seeds of new intentions, so take the time to listen and hone your vision before setting things into motion. This is your moment, babe!
Slip into your connection to the universal energy, which supports and nourishes you in all the ways that you need and desire. The Spring New Moon is a gentle reminder that when we truly listen, we discover ourselves to be the ultimate wellsprings of wisdom.
The So Hum Meditation is a practice that reconnects us to the wisdom of the Universe. The translation of So Hum is “I Am That,” reminding us that we are in fact one with all that is. This means that all the wisdom, love and support we need lies within us . . . all we have to do is tune in. In Vedic traditions, “so” is referring to the divine and “hum” refers to the individual ego.
As you soak in the soothing qualities of Jasmine, Chamomile, and Tulsi in your New Moon Botanical Bath Tea, drop into your wisdom with this simple meditation.
So Hum Meditation
Sit comfortably in a peaceful place and bring your awareness to your breath. As you inhale slowly, visualize the breath originating at your root and flowing up the front of your body to the center of your head, allowing the sound “sooo” to reverberate silently in your mind. Once you have inhaled fully, pause at the top of your breath. On the exhale, follow the breath down the back line of your body, down your spinal cord, as you allow the sound “hummm” to reverberate silently in your mind. Pause at the bottom of the exhale. When we inhale “so,” we are filling ourselves with divine consciousness, and when we exhale “hum” we let go of the ego self, which often dictates our most limiting beliefs. Continue the practice for a few more minutes before you gently open your eyes and step slowly in to your bath.

Notice how your creative wisdom opens as you submerge in the healing water. Soak for 20 to 30 minutes. As you do, close your eyes and allow your senses to awaken as your physical body softens. Let the medicinal waters remind you of the healing power of plants and the value of creating space to reconnect with yourself. Meditate on the affirmation, “I am connected to my deepest wisdom,” and allow its essence to gently wash over you.
After your bath, reflect in your journal on the following questions:
What activities do I engage in that feel life giving?
What about these experiences feels nourishing to me?
When I tune in to my deepest wisdom what do I want?
What can I do to cultivate balance to allow my desires to take root?
The spring New Moon is a time to maintain internal focus and provides clarity around the things you wish to call forth into your life. This introspective time of lucidity is an ideal time to tune into your truths and desires.
