Winter Solstice ~ The Guiding Light for Your Soul's Path
The energy of winter is about going within. It's the fruitful darkness and silence in which our soul's yearnings and new inspirations emerge. When we link our awareness to nature's energetic cycles, our personal growth cycles begin to deepen.
We tend to spend much time suppressing and hiding our darkness... Why? When negative emotions come up and we feel them, they're inconvenient, uncomfortable, or worse, we make ourselves wrong for feeling them. It's important to not allow this 'darkness' overwhelm our lives and take over our thoughts. Seek to understand that cradling these negative emotions will be one of the greatest catalysts for personal growth and transformation. Dare I say, its our way to enlightenment and the guiding light for our Soul's Path.
Allow your feelings to guide you... your feelings are your truth !
Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun's strength builds, and days grow longer. It is a time to rest and reflect.
The origin of the word 'Solstice' is Latin. Made of two words: sol– meaning “the sun” and sistere meaning “to make stand.” Winter Solstice is one the most energetically powerful points of the year! The axis of the Earth pauses, shifts and moves in the opposite direction and for three days the Sun stands still. Imagine that ! This powerful source of energy allows stillness before it shifts direction. How powerful is that? Let that sink in... Such a powerful metaphor for the energy available to us during Winter Solstice. It lends energy and creates momentum for us to invite change as we enter into the new year. As the nights grow shorter and the days grow brighter until the Summer Solstice, cradle yourself in the calm of stillness. Honour this energy, knowing the return of brighter days ahead, is a reminder you are always connected to Source, and your Soul and inner light never dims.
Feel this season guide your Soul, invite change as you shift your life towards your Soul's calling. Nurture yourself with gentle thoughts and compassion... Hear the whispers of your Soul. Let this new life inspire you and feel the momentum it builds within you. Be excited for the spring season, as you’ll be bursting with new energy and ideas. Let great joy be your harvest in 2022!
Abundant blessings to you in the coming year!
