I slept in today and kept having the coolest recurring dream. You know when a pebble is dropped in water and it ripples outward? My body was like the pebble and there were waves of light rippling out from the center of me into eternity.
Inside of the light waves I could feel the truest form of myself breaking through louder and louder, until it was crashing loud and proud throughout all that is. I could feel this return of light transforming and catalyzing me to a new state. Pure Magic.
Doing my best to harness all this powerful energy available right now (saturn moving into capricorn, mercury stationing, winter solstice…) I’m going to yoga in a few and then coming home to do a little Winter Solstice ritual to honor the return of light within the deepest, darkest night.
Winter is my favorite season because everything is so quiet and it’s finally time to slow down, and “bring your outside, inside.” If you’re interested in more info about the Winter Solstice… and maybe even creating your own ceremony check out these awesome resources:
On the Solstice, we honor the Light, we remember the Light, we celebrate the Light. These seasonal turning points remind us of the essential, the elemental…wherein lies our planetary unity.
Whether we welcome Winter in the Northern hem or Summer in the Southern hem, we enter a new cycle. We cross over a new threshold.”
“Winter solstice marks the onset of winter and the darkest day of the year. With the darkest day of the year, however, we have the cycle turning over to move back toward the light. Its a reminder that as soon as we hit our darkest point, there is a light on the other side.”
