Create Space for Magic this Winter Solstice
The Winter Solstice falls on 21st December and is the shortest day and longest night. It is the peak of winter, a point of stillness and transition as we pause in readiness for the new sun that rises this day.
From this day the sun grows in strength and warmth to lighten our days and inner fire.
To create your own magic and stillness:
Simply sit in meditation within the darkness.
With intent honour this pivotal point in the changing of cycles.
Give gratitude to all the blessings and good things you have in your life.
Reflect on how you have changed and grown – are there aspects of your self you would still like to let go of, change? Acknowledge these and with intent ask them to be released, to be transformed.
When you are ready light a single candle to acknowledge the Light that is returning to the land and also the Light that is returning within you. Each day your Light will grow brighter.
With intent and if you know at this time what you wish for declare these to the Light of the flame – breathe and feel these desires in your heart chakra.
Next cup your hands and take them to just above the flame and gather up the energy of the flame in to your hands. With intent take the light to your base chakra, holding the energy there for a minute or so.
Continue to do this for each chakra always returning to the flame first to gather more Light. The light will nourish and help your wishes to grow and expand.
This simple meditation creates a wonderful new space for you to sow new seeds of hope and love at this magical time. You can continue to take your wishes and desires to the flame of a candle each month around the time of the full and new moons. This will prepare your energy ready to burst forth in the Spring.
