We have a great week ahead of us; we have two celebrations the winter solstice and Christmas next weekend. I love the winter solstice; the darkest day of the year. On this day we have reached a turning point. It is the start of new beginnings. The Earth has made its annual journey around the Sun, and from then on the days will start to get longer again. It is why we celebrate New Year at this given time of year, as it marks the entrance into a new cycle for Mother Earth. It also marks the birth of Jesus as the sun/son, the Light of the World is born. It is the dawning of a new consciousness on Earth. It is a time of hope and aspiration. It is a letting go of the old and welcoming the new. There is a particular kind of energy at this time of year, an energy that we need to tune into that allows us to upload the upgrades that we need to usher in a new consciousness on Earth. So do take the time from your busy schedule to meditate, to spend time in nature and stillness over the coming week. It is very important to do so, otherwise, we individually and humanity as a collective will be lagging behind in our progression. And we need to progress, to be receptive and open to all that the Universe and God are giving us at this sacred and blessed time of year. Because I know it is so easy to get literally wrapped up in the whole commercialism of Christmas that we do not allow for the time needed to be still this time of year. And this is THE most important time of the year, therefore it is vital for us to make the effort to maximise it. Awareness of course is key, if we are not aware of why this time of year is so sacred, we will not tune into it. The winter solstice is one of the high points of the energetic calendar. Therefore, it is a time to slow down and turn inward. Also, next week we have a new moon, which is also another turning point, and a new renewal period. The two energies combined allow for a complete reboot for us, and for the planet. Just look at the monuments that the ancients built in order to harness the energy of the solstice, just think of Newgrange, Stonehenge, Aeshowe Scotland, Goseck Circle Germany, Tulum Mexico, stone Lines at Cerro del Gentil pyramid, Peru. All were built to maximise the influx of higher spiritual energies of the solstice. That should indicate to us, just how important these times of the year are to us. So take a leaf out of their book, and take notice and time out to honour, and connect with the sacred energies that are in the ether during this time of the year. Honour the solstice and the Christ that is reborn within you at this time of year. That is the Christ Consciousness that is universally within all of us, just waiting to be birthed out of the darkness. So, just like the sun/son we too can be reborn, reignited and renewed, into higher versions of ourselves … Now that is something to celebrate this Christmas. So, ditch the old, and come away bathed in the new Chrisened consciousness of light this year.
Happy Christmas to all.
