On Tuesday, December 21st, the Northern Hemisphere will move into the season of Winter. This will be our longest night of the year, leading us to the unfolding of light as we move, day by day, through the cycle of seasons.
When we step into Winter, we move into the element of water. A place to find stillness as well as let the rivers of emotions flow. Both are healing. This is a time to move into your depths, be inspired.
Below is a Winter Solstice Journal. Many of you will recognize this from last year. As I sat down to create a new one, I realized this one was really good. : ) I move through these seasons right along with you and use what I create. My creations are truly from my heart. So, download the journal and use as you wish. I found that I adopted the pages of Intentions and Daily Intentions as a check in for how I was moving through my weeks and days. Sometimes, the world around me was just too much and I needed a place to check myself before being dragged into the chaos.
I hope that you will share this page by copying this link and sharing with your friends. I know that creating sacred moments in our days moves us from the chaos around us, out of our head (fight/flight) and into our heart (divine love). This is my wish for each of you, for myself and all those in this world.
Peace. Blessing. xo. Sara
Lines For Winter by Mark Strand
Tell yourself as it gets cold and gray falls from the air that you will go on walking, hearing the same tune no matter where you find yourself -- inside the dome of dark or under the cracking white of the moon's gaze in a valley of snow. Tonight as it gets cold tell yourself what you know which is nothing but the tune your bones play as you keep going. And you will be able for once to lie down under the small fire of winter stars. And if it happens that you cannot go on or turn back and you find yourself where you will be at the end, tell yourself in that final flowing of cold through your limbs that you love what you are.
