La, la, la!
Merry Solstice to ye!
Wishing you a good fire and something yummy to eat on this ancient celebration.
If nothing else, I hope you can get outside at some point and howl at the moon.
Here's a wonderful Solstice piece from that site my friend Lorri turned me on to: The Power Path
The Winter Solstice
is exact on Friday, December 21 at 4:11 AM Mountain Standard Time. This
is one of the most important time frames in our history. Although the
exact time of the solstice is important to note,
the 48 hours afterwards is equally as potent and may be even more so in
terms of where your thoughts, intentions, feelings and focus are.The
energy is about honoring and forgiving the structure that has held life
together up until this point. Move yourself into a place of trust that a
new structure has been organizing itself in the quantum field through a
collective intention of having a better world. It is on the brink of
being birthed onto the physical plane. The best intention during this
time is to be in trust.
Here are some suggestions of how to work with this time:
Stay away from negativity and martyrdom and be positive and optimistic no matter what.
your mind and your environment from clutter so you can be open to the
incredible insights available at this time and have a journal handy to
write them down. Pay attention to your dreams and anything that is
surfacing at this time especially old memories and recapitulations. If
emotions grab you, let them pass on through.
Instead of thinking
and thinking and thinking about maybe doing something or changing
something, make a commitment to do it. Take some time to write serious
intentions and don't be afraid to dream big and to leave room for spirit
to bring you more than you can imagine.
connection with guides and allies through meditation and spiritual
practice. Ask for help and keep "don't know mind" about how it may show
Be around friends and family and community that are on the same page.
Forgive, forgive, forgive.
a burning ritual: write down with total forgiveness what you are
complete with and burn it ritually with some offering of sage or
tobacco. Then write your intentions.
Say hello to the earth and
the sun and the new frequencies they are bringing in. Be very conscious
and present with your environment sending light and love into all the
physical extensions of yourself (electronics, electrical system,
vehicles, plumbing, clothing, appliances etc etc.) In this way you are
"tuning" yourself to the larger energies of the earth and the sun and
then harmonizing your personal environment.
It would be a good
idea to clean your home and workspace with a cleansing smoke or whatever
method you use. Bells and tuning forks work well too.
Light a long burning candle and place on your sheet of intentions along with a vase of fresh flowers.
This is the dawn of a new era and the one we have been waiting
for. It is the time frame that marks the end of the hierarchical,
competitive and success oriented approach to life and marks the
beginning of a relationship, cooperative and community oriented cycle.
It won't happen overnight however, we must take advantage of this time
through our attention and focus. If you plant the seed right, a
beautiful growth will follow.
I'm totally down with all of that, y'all.
Here's to forgiveness and a new era of peace and compassion.!
And here's wishing YOU a blessed, blessed Solstice.
