The longest night of the year. So much darkness. Here I am, synced up with the seasons whether I want to be or not. I am driven to go inside, inside myself, into the darkness. While it seems everyone else is out celebrating, I hear myself saying no to friends and family invitations in order to dive deep into the darkness and decide what to take and what to leave. What serves this life we get to create together as we step into the new year? What can I release so the light can get in?
How wide can I spread my arms in order to love and give and serve?
I welcome this darkness, this inward journey, this trip inside, that Mother Earth, in her wisdom, shares with us each year. As I sift and sort through, as I release some long held beliefs I feel clearer, more connected to the light that I know is returning. I think of you, my friend, and what we will create and heal together as the cycle of seasons continue. You are my gift and I am thankful for it. Let's inhabit this precious time and use this opportunity for inner connection. Let's go in. Dip in. Dive in.
