Celebrating the Healed Co-Creator - December Solstice

The unprecedented events of these times are enabling each of us to reach higher states of consciousness. Accepting and forgiving those who have offended and hurt us in the past is imperative if we are to experience smooth sailing through the veils of illusion. In the light of self discovery, bring to mind anyone you feel has hurt or betrayed you.  Garner the precious insights that such interactions have brought you. Shine a light on how these painful situations have served you by strengthening your sense of self.

 

We are releasing the need for self-discovery through struggle and pain. In the new paradigm we learn by heart centred actions, refined perceptions, acknowledgement and love.

 

Release resentments.

Stay in your heart.

Focus on Love and lightness of being.

Connect your heart to the heart of Mother Earth and Father Sun.

Give and receive gifts with acknowledgement and gratitude.

Elevate your thoughts and actions.

Smile inside and out.

 

 

 

Sacred in Nature on the Solstice 20 - 22 December

 

You will have your chosen methods for celebrating this solstice.

You might like to adapt the following technique that I frequently use.

 

Mindfully walk in your chosen part of nature until you come to an area that sings to you.

Choose an area about 2 metres wide to explore in detail.

 

Imagine a sphere of safety and light around you.

Either sit or stand in this sphere for as long as you wish.

 

Connect with Nature through your heart and each of your senses.

Smell, Sight, Touch, Hearing, Taste and Intuition.

 

Notice everything.

 

Converse or sing to the plants, water, sky, elementals, devas and nature spirits.

You may like to draw, photograph, and write of what you experience.

 

Take a flower, leaf, stone or twig and commune with it for at least 10 minutes.

 

Allow yourself to sink into the experience.

 

On completion, thank all the living beings in your sacred space.

 

 

 

The two solstices and two equinoxes every year mark the beginning of each new season - summer, autumn, winter and spring.

The December Solstice ushers in the beginning of summer in the southern hemisphere and winter in the northern.

 

The mindful observer witnesses how the sun and cosmic configurations affect the seasons, and how in turn the seasons affect the cycles of life in nature, as well as in humans.  Celebrate this solstice by yourself, with another or with a group and over the coming weeks notice how your life is subsequently enhanced.

 

As we move from dense third-dimensional existence into multidimensional living - all dates on the gregorian calendar become mere markers. This solstice marks the end of time as we knew it. In multidimensionality we learn to live in the now moment in full presence - thus enjoying new and gratifying creations from the very weaving of our thoughts, feelings and spontaneous impulses.

 

The days to the December Solstice are rich in possibility for living the life we were born to live while simultaneously garnering whole new understandings and spiritual awakenings.

 

Be aware that changes may occur in the company we choose, the food we eat, the thoughts we think, how we live our daily lives and bring life to our creations, where we put our energies and who and how we love.

 

We may choose a 'turning away from' in some areas ~ and a turning towards.

 

When we dispense with repetitious fascination with doomsday scenarios and gloomy prophecies, conspiracy theories, worn-out negative agendas, dysfunctional default modes, blaming and superiority - we turn away from fear, stultifying lifestyles and illness - thereby creating much more space in our daily lives for spontaneous and serendipitous occurrences, life-enhancing creations and miracles.

 

Achieving this can be as difficult or as easy as you wish. Just like releasing any habit such as repetitious whining, self absorption, smoking, drug or alcohol addiction - it can be a process - or - you can just stop. Just stop and turn away. The initiative, decision and choice is always yours.

 

The turning towards comes out of the turning away from.

 

Get in touch with the small sacred place within your heart. For millennia we have had beliefs imposed upon us from external sources. These were designed to condition us to use as the scaffolding of beliefs on which to structure our lives.

 

Control driven beliefs and traditions are giving way to epiphanies, internal discovery, and becoming. By becoming the river, the sky, the earth, the music, the eagle and the whale we live in the authenticity of Oneness where infinite worlds open to us.

 

What will you turn towards?

Personal Time Capsule - December Solstice

to be opened at a time of your choosing

 

Linear time as we knew it has been superceded by eternal time. The grid that once contained a rigid reality on earth is dissolving throughout these days, weeks and months of remarkable change. This is evidenced by synchronicities, epiphanies, and deja vu experiences. The veils of illusion are thinning and falling. The collapsing of time has brought with it an acute need to navigate an entirely new mode of experiencing as well as creating our new reality. Synchronous time is becoming miraculous.

Your Mission if You Choose to Accept It ~ Either alone or with a group - as a solstice project - create a Time Capsule containing all the things that have been meaningful to you over the past few years. Design your Time Capsule to clearly show who you are as of this December.

Some signposts for your consideration - significant people, animals, work, play, writing, music, books, devices, belongings, events, places, movies, plays, procedures, happenings, home, travel, purchases, teachers, spirituality, current beliefs and attitudes, achievements, creations, courses, retreats, games, sports, your ideas go here ___________.

 

 

Gratitude Jar

Commence your own Gratitude Jar or Gratitude Diary on the December Solstice ~ or a communal jar with the members of your household. Read all the entries at various times throughout 2015 and again on the December Solstice 2015. Keep your focus on the positive and catch yourself having fun and in gratitude. You may find yourself making quite a number of entries every day. Raise your vibration by positive focus. This in turn elevates us to become again the evolved species we were always meant to be. We become luminous humans by raising our vibration and practising love, gratitude, acknowledgement and trust.
