Winter (Biboon) has arrived, with its great changes – both in Nature and within yourself.
We welcome in the Season of Rest and Renewal. We are turning toward the sacred direction of the North along the Medicine Wheel, moving into the time of Wisdom.
We greet the new season with the celebration of the Winter Solstice – marking the longest of nights and the gradual return of our elder brother, the Sun, to light our way.
Winter is Storytelling Time
This is the traditional time of stories – when brief days and long nights invite families to gather around the great fire in the center of the home. Elders share treasured memories. Little ones hear the ancient words, perhaps for the first time … their parents refresh their hearts and minds with the stories, both sacred and sweet.
As you move, inevitably, forward in your life and your contemplations, you may feel that your world is spinning out of control at this time of year. As though there are so many demands upon your time, your attention, your heart and your spirit, that your mind cannot possibly keep up!
Are You Taking on Too Much?
Overwhelm can trip you up at this time. And yet, within the chaos, symbols of a deeper invitation are being extended to you.
Your mind … your entire Being … is responding to this heightened activity mode. Attend to what IS, while keeping your attention on the direction in which you are headed.
Open your mind, heart and spirit to insights and dreams.
These are your information ‘downloads.’ If you pay attention, you’ll be able to receive and make note of the messages coming from Spirit to guide your journey for the upcoming year. (More on this during the Vision 2021 virtual gathering)
Choose … to be in a state of wonder. Breathe in awe and appreciation, rather than becoming caught up in a state of overwhelm.
How do you find the pace and space to keep up with all that is whirling around you? Simply recall that you are at the center of the Medicine Wheel. You are grounded and balanced in that space. Each action you choose to give your attention to is one thing … one thing at a time.
Remember to breathe.
Pause before you react. Choose your words and actions carefully. Remember what is RIGHT about you! This is a very powerful time to be awake!
If you’d like more clarity and guidance to create an extraordinary year, we invite you to join us in Calling for a Sacred Vision. It’s a free global, virtual event to help you create a vision — and an action plan to realize it!
