Celebrate the Winter Solstice and Awaken Something Special Inside You December 21, 2016
Do You Celebrate the Winter Solstice?
You are intimately connected to the cycles of the seasons and the weather. As the seasonal energy of Winter gets quiet and goes deep into Mother Earth, so does our own energy. It is a good time of year to rest and go inward, honoring the cycles inside of us and our intimate connection to the cycles outside of us. Doing so will prepare you for the burst of life force energy and growth that comes with Spring.
Life flows more smoothly when we align our lives with
the cycles of nature
Celebrating and acknowledging the Winter Solstice is a way to align your life with the cycles of Nature. When we celebrate the long night it reawakens something special inside of us. Just like how Feng Shui and Plant Spirit Medicine align our home and life with the Divine Forces of Nature, celebrating the Winter Solstice and the Summer Solstice does this on a Macro level. The Solstice is a time of great change in our universe and we are intimately connected to that.
What can you do to celebrate?
I'm sure you can come up with many good ideas but here are a few suggestions:
- Gather with family or friends to enjoy a seasonal meal.
- Sit by a fire or candle and reflect on this past year and give thanks for the blessings in your life. What are the things you'd like to let go of?
- Take a walk outside, observing and acknowledging the presence and beauty of Nature.
