Take Your Time, Please

 

          All over the world, New Year's Eve is celebrated in a variety of ways. In the US many of us watch our TV screens as the ball drops in Times' Square. My grandmother used to go to the movies. She told me that before midnight they gave out horns and other noisemakers. As midnight struck everyone blew and rattled vigorously. Making a loud noise is one way to drive out any lingering old negativity and start the new one clean and fresh. We have a bell collection and I go around the house ringing each one at midnight.

Greetings to all on this radiant morning of Winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere of our amazing planet! I want to show you something, to warmly invite you to come with me on a short journey... everyone is welcome, but most especially those who feel that the switch to their inner flame of happiness turned off some time ago and you cannot find the lever to turn it back on anymore, cannot find the comforting path you once tread so easily, or perhaps you never did. I most especially invite those who feel too much suffering has occurred in their lives and to our world that happiness is no longer in reach, that, indeed, you no longer know what it even feels like to be happy, content, at peace with yourself. Perhaps you feel that, considering your own and others' suffering, no one has the right to feel happy, that it is perhaps disloyal to those whom you still grieve and to those who suffer mightily around the world. Nevertheless, if you might take a moment here with me, I want to show you something...that may, possibly, provide you with a shift, and then from you, a shift may happen in our world.

Winter Solstice

Observing the cycle of changing light on our dear planet all year long has brought us to Winter Solstice, the simultaneous ending and beginning of the solar year. A blessed poise suspends us.

The Great Mother gives birth to the first speck of reborn light, barely believable after its agonizing absence. The longest night and the start of incense was originally called Yule, from the Anglo-Saxon Iul, wheel. At the center of the Wheel we look in the mirror. We see the seeds of our intentions, our hopes for Gaia's future.

Listen.
This is the time of b2ap3_thumbnail_78036167_2490378187841055_3926545641299247104_o.jpg
waning and rebirth,
retreat and re-emergence,
the patience of rest,
the renewal of will,
the brightness of hope,
the warmth of embers
in a long night.


Happy Solstice! I have a Winter Ritual Kit and a bundle of companion materials including a guided audio ritual walkthrough available to you
here.

Thank you for walking through this year with me!

May you find wisdom in the silent spaces, courage in the mystery, and the power to make the choices you know you need to make to activate your dreams.

Much love,

Molly

Movements for Greater Magnetism to the Brain and Bones

*10 minutes a day is all you need to do these techno-spirituality movements, to strengthen your brain and bones!

1. THE LUNGE: With fingers entwined, shoved downward, then with thumbs and forefingers connected make a triangle, then bring hands to forehead, pressing lightly on the third eye, then flip hands up on top of the head, stretching upward; at the same time lunging to the right with right leg, then bring arms down to your side and bring right leg in; repeat this finger entwined motion, and lunge to the left with left leg.

The Winter Holidays have arrived and the new year is less than a month away. For people who would rather skip them because of heart-aching estrangement from biological kin, I dedicate this Blog to you!

Mementos of Friends

I took the red and white baking dish out of the drawer under the oven and set it on the counter. An image of the person who had given it to me rose in my mind, and I sighed. We had been friends for many years. Now however she had joined the angels that she so often spoke of. Her faith was strong and she shared it on occasion though not intrusively. A colorful character, she was always fun to see and over the years she had given me other gifts I cherished.

As I reached to put on my earrings, I opened a small trinket box and fished around for a tiny plastic "ear nut." I keep a lot of them in it, ready to make sure I don't lose a precious earring. The pretty little box with a woman on the lid was another gift from a special friend and I think of her always when I open it to get one. There is a pair of cute stretchy pants in my drawer, a present from a friend who has moved away, so I don't see her any longer. I am happy to have this reminder of her and of our friendship.
