Spring is on its way Mamas! The chilled air will soon give way to languid breezes and the frozen earth will soften as April showers encourage new growth. Springtime is a special season for Mama-to-be; as Mother Nature prepares to blossom with life, so too do you. This season is buzzing with anticipation, preparation, and eagerness as we emerge from the long winter months, and no one understands anticipation like an expectant Mama. This is a time of year when the beauty of nature holds a mirror to your life’s journey.
Today we’re offering a special spring meditation for Mamas—an inspiring visualization exercise to help you connect with Babe and harness the transformational power of the season. Not only are you preparing your Little One for life beyond the womb, but you are also blossoming into motherhood.
To get started, you’ll need to make yourself comfortable. Roll out your yoga mat in a quiet space. If the weather is nice, you might like to try this meditation outdoors. Have a light blanket, and a few pillows close by. Sit tall with your legs crossed; a pillow can be used to elevate your hips. The reading portion of this exercise will take about 5 minutes, but we encourage you to linger in meditation for as long as feels good to you. Feel free to lie down once the reading portion is complete, using your pillows and blanket to settle into complete ease for the duration of your meditation.
Take several deep breaths in and out. Let each breath greet your body with complete kindness. Welcome your body and mind into this moment. Here you are safe, supported, and at ease. (Pause) Let the next several breaths greet your Babe with love. Welcome your Babe into this moment with you. Within your body, Babe is safe, supported, and at ease.
You are sitting in a sprawling meadow surrounded by pale gold grass. The long months of winter are melting away. A soft breeze moves across the meadow and it sweeps through the grass like a gentle wave. You sit and listen to the whispering grass. The soft rush comes, and then goes. As you breath in and out you become as vast as the sprawling meadow. Your body feels spacious and free.
You place your hands on your growing belly. No one knows the many months of work you will do in preparation for Babe to be born, but Mother Nature understands. Within the sleeping ground life is stirring. You feel the potential of the earth beneath you and welcome the radical change of spring.
The sun is growing stronger. It warms your face, your neck, and your shoulders. The sun softens the ground in preparation for seedlings, saplings, and sprouts to push through. Leaning forward you plant your palms on the ground. Spring’s transformational energy travels through your hands into your body—a gift from your Mother. As you breath in and out you are connected to the rhythm of this season. Your body feels infinite and mighty.
All around you, the golden meadow begins to change. Fresh green seedlings begin to reach towards the sky. The sprawling meadow becomes lush and alive, filled with colourful flowers of every shape and size—yellow daisies on swaying stalks, delicate lily of the valley, and vibrant tulips of orange, purple, and pink. The air smells sweet and new. You hear the hum of bees and ladybugs dancing from bloom to bloom.
Take a deep breath in, and out. Everything in this place is filled with life. You are connected to everything around you, from the glowing sun above, to the rich soil below. Rest in this beautiful meadow. Lie down and continue to notice the sights, sounds, and smells for as long as you like. Your body feels peaceful and at ease.
When you are ready to wake up your mind and body bring your attention back to the space you are in. Wake up your muscles by opening and closing your hands, shrugging your shoulders, and wiggling your toes. Open your eyes and sit quietly for a moment. Remember that as a Mama-to-be the power of spring is within you! Throughout your journey to motherhood, you may notice how often nature is a reflection of your changing body. Connecting with the rhythm of the seasons is a way to live in harmony with Mother Nature, and trust in the wisdom of your own body.
