The winter season was a time of a bit more rest and relaxation, because there was no electricity, so the earlier darkness enforced that.
When we celebrate the solstice and equinox is we are celebrating the cycles in our lives. The winter season is a time when we can learn from nature to honor the darkness of life's mysteries; when we can explore the void where creation occurs. We can reach deep into our souls and ponder our beingness.
It is the time to revere old age which brings wisdom and understanding and to face our own old age with serenity and faith and perhaps a bit of excitement. After all, 80 is the new 60!
The winter season is the time when we come to the end of projects and gain insight, experience and celebrate completion
In todays recording we also want to welcome the sun's return and the longer hours of light (or 3-4 minutes more each day). We want to honor nature cycles and what we cannot see. Just as the seeds lie fallow in the ground during the winter, this part of the cycle from solstice to the spring equinox deepens our understanding about silence, darkness and the mystery of life from which new creations emerge.
I invite you to take the time to honor this season of quiet reflection in darkness
You may wish to gather a candle and a bell or bowl to make joyful sounds, a paper and pen and a pot and matches in which you can burn anything you wish to release and intentions that you wish to manifest. If you have access to the outdoors, you may wish to do this celebration on a balcony or deck near a garden or planter.
