Happy Winter Solstice!

Winter Solstice marks the darkest moment of the year for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. For months we have been slowly preparing for this darkness and turning inward, nurturing, reflecting, and restoring. Things are slowly shifting back to light and warmth. We are now preparing to open up again, to let in more light, more growth, more connections and more energy. 

From our greatest darkness can come our brightest light.

This shift in energy is important for our inner balance. It is the perfect moment to reflect on ourselves, on our energy and on our thoughts. What have we created over the last year? Have our connections served us? How have we grown? Who have we become this year? This moon is also the last New Moon of 2014, making it the perfect moment to reflect and to set your intentions for the new season and for the new coming year. Think about what you want to create for yourself, of how you want to share your energy, of the moments you wish to fill your life with.

It's all about your intention.

A simple way to set your intentions for the coming months in this moment by taking a moment to meditate and perform a small ritual for yourself. Get quiet and meditate inward, thinking about where you are and where you want to head to. Light a candle, speak your intentions into it and let it burn through to its end. Breathe in deeply, cut chords and release old energy, memories, expectations and desires that no longer serve you in order to make space for new light to come in. This ritual can be very simple yet very cleansing and very powerful for you energetically. The great shift in earth energy happening now is the perfect moment to let go of anything that no longer serves you or that weigh you down so that what is coming towards you can have the space it needs to fill your life with growth and goodness in the coming new year. 

Today marks the natural energetic shift of a yearly cycle. Set your intentions and put your trust in life as you step towards the emerging light. The universe will rise up to catch you.
