As I sit here this evening I’m pondering on events that give meaning to our lives. Today is one of those that has been lost in our country to most, The Winter Solstice. Solstices mark transitions. Now we transit from the long dark into the renewal of spring……ck out this site for great info on the history of the winter solstice: http://www.brownielocks.com/wintersolstice.html
Now is the time to look back over 2011 and see where you have come. What has left your life to make room for the new? Prepare to welcome in the new and potentially brighter year with fresh opportunity for anything you want in your life. It is a very powerful time to perform a meaningful ritual. I have had some of the most powerful spiritual experiences practicing ritual at the solstices.
I’ve just completed a great one. I wrote down on two separate pieces of paper what I want to let go of in 2012 and what I want to come in. I went out into the woods behind my house, breathed in that crisp air, burned the pages, breathed in relief and hope and fresh air and felt completely renewed! I kept a copy and put it in my astro ephemeris for 2012. It’s good to look back and see what you have accomplished. And amazing how accurate these little letting goes and inviting ins are!
May your 2012 be more than you hoped for and may the energies flow through you peacefully with grace and ease.
Namaste to all Jai Bhagwan Shalom Peace Que todas as bênçãos da terra te iluminem Om Shanti
