Winter Solstice is this Saturday, Dec. 21. On this, the shortest day of the year, the sun stops moving southward, pauses, and then starts moving northward. This pause is called the “solstice,” from the Latin words “sol” for “sun” and “sisto” for “stop.”
Since June 21st, the Summer Solstice, the days have been getting shorter, or rather the daylight hours have been dwindling, leaving us in darkness more than light. With the winter solstice the cycle reverses and we begin to enjoy more light in our days. And with that light comes newness.
Winter Solstice is a perfect time to stop, pause and reflect over the past and plan for the coming year. We need to take the time to pause physically and mentally, rest, re-energize during this busy season. Let time stop, just breathe….
Even now – just take a deep breath and know more light is on its way for all in the Northern hemisphere.
And with the New Year fast approaching some people like to ‘smudge’ their homes, and perhaps themselves, of any unhealthy or negative energizes. Once these energies are gone there will be plenty of room for more positive energy.
At Libre we love new starts and the New Year is a great time for that – so think it over and see what fits for you as your best way to cultivate more light in your life.
We will be featuring ‘healthy habits’ in January and look forward to hearing about your resolutions for your best self in 2014. As the days bring us more light, warms us with its glow, enabling new growth, we can flourish with the positive energy. Cultivating light in our own daily lives enhances our daily lives physically and spiritually and then we can share our own light and reflect positivity into the world.
Tea moments with Libre give a wonderful opportunity to rest, reflect and simply breathe.
Please ponder and share how you will grow your light in the days, weeks and months ahead.
