Winter Solstice and Deep Connections

This is an important season for me, it is a powerful threshold time that calls me back to my own nature. I create space to nurture my deepest connections; this allows me to release, rest, renew and fill again with vital energy that flows through my life…
Winter Solstice has been celebrated in all cultures the world over since time remembered. This long night marks the beginning of the solar year, a celebration of Light returning and the rebirth of the Sun. In old Europe, it was known as Yule, from the Norse, Jul, which means wheel.
The solstice and equinoxes are a time of honoring the cycles of the earth, and honoring Spirit. The wheel turning connects us to a cycles that live within each of us. This is a potent time of releasing, balancing and re-birthing. Celebrating, honoring and journeying within these cycles of light, dark, death, rebirth, are necessary for our souls growth.
I share this wonderful invocation written by Elayne Kalila Doughty, a companion on this long night of Solstice inviting you to create sacred space, welcome silence as we prepare for new emergence and opening.
“We stand together at a gateway of collective initiation, and to cross its threshold the directions are simple: empty, empty, empty. Empty out your mind of all its wandering thoughts and concerns and become a vessel of the divine. Become able to listen and heed the deeper wisdom that lies within you, access that still quiet center, where you are able to envision beyond the current small story of your life and enter instead into the bigger story of your own life, of the life of our collective humanity, and of this moment in our shared story.
We have all been called—called to clear ourselves of all our patterns of fear, playing it small and hiding out in excuses. We have been called so that we can become vessels for increased illumination and light. There is a phase-change underway. We know you can feel it. We all can. Imagine that as you enter into this temple space…you are embraced in silence and stillness…we co-create this space of empty Presence.”
In Vision,
