SPRING EQUINOX DESPACHO CEREMONY
I don't know about you, but January 1st - the dead of Winter - usually feels like a heavy time to set intentions. For me, aligning with the ENERGETIC NEW YEAR of the Spring Equinox feels like the most potent time to plant seeds. And it is!!
The Spring Equinox equates new life and birth. When we align with the natural rhythms of Creation, we reap enormous benefits. And when we offer our gratitude to Creation, we reap even greater benefits.
One way to honor the Spring Equinox is via a Despacho Ceremony.
What is a Despacho? A Despacho is a prayer bundle offering that is created from biodegradable items such as flowers, berries, feathers, food, crystals/stones, sugar, salt, shells, etc. This prayer bundle is then buried in the Earth, burnt in sacred flames, gifted to the waters, or otherwise offered.
A Despacho is lovingly created and then offered in ceremony to Mother Earth and the elements. This act of love and gratitude heals us by restoring the connection that we share with All-that-Is. Everything that we have offered in love and gratitude to Mother Earth returns to us multiplied.
JOIN ME in this sacred ceremony during the Spring Equinox portal on Tuesday 3/21 from 7:30-9pm. Read more below.
This will be RECORDED if you cannot make it Live via Zoom.

Spiritually, the Spring Equinox is a beautiful opportunity to honor Mother Earth and our inner desires.
I was first led through a beautiful Despacho Ceremony in 2014 on the Spring Equinox in Peru at the Moray site – which is said to be the energetic “womb” of the Earth.
Before the ceremony we went to the local market and collected heaps of flowers, medicinal herbs, fresh food, and other offerings.
Once we arrived at the sacred site of Moray the local Shaman and guides guided us in cleansing ourselves using indigenous herbs, songs and incantations.
After each member of the group had been cleansed, we created a Despacho together – a beautiful mandala of organic items to represent our deep gratitude and love for Pachamama -Mother Earth- and the bounty and beauty she provides.
To finish the ceremony the Despacho is then buried within Earth, burnt in sacred flames, or otherwise offered.
A Despacho Ceremony is an act of love and gratitude that heals us by restoring the connections that we share with All.
HOW DOES A DESPACHO WORK?
As the Despacho (prayer/gratitude bundle you have created) is offered, Mother Earth transmutes and consumes any dark, disorganized energy while simultaneously releasing light, healing energy to all corners of the Universe.
In addition, AAALLLLL that you have offered in gratitude - flowers representing beauty, spices representing passion, crystals representing clarity, food representing abundance, etc... ALL of that is returned to you, multiplied!!!
So, we offer in the absolute spirit of the deepest gratitude and love...reviewing the past year and THANKING Creation for our plenty. We do not offer to ask for something in return, but the beauty of this act is that all-of-Creation blesses us back for that which we offer. And isn't that the secret to living a gratitude-filled existence?
The collective birth of the New Earth is HERE. You may be experiencing feelings of self-doubt, discouragement and defeat. You are not alone, wise woman. Unite this day in Sisterhood and Divine Feminine Rising to re-birth anew and rise up to your innate gifts, longings and calling.
Change starts here. With gratitude, intention, and an open heart.
