This is the time of year where most cultures and religions celebrate Light on Earth. This celebration takes on many forms and most traditions include lighting candles and sharing wishes of joy and prosperity. It is no coincidence; most religions have modelled their celebrations of light upon the very ancient traditions of observing the sun’s cycles. The time of the Winter Solstice (Sydney - Saturday, 22 June 2019 at 1:54 am AEST), where the Sun appears to come closer to the Earth and the days start to get longer. For the Ancients, this was a time to reflect upon and celebrate divine Mystery.
To me, the Winter Solstice is the perfect time to meditate on my shadow aspects and on the projects and energy I want to bring forth in the coming year. It is an evening of dancing, meditating and enjoying the company of like-minded soul sisters. There are many nuggets of truth and wisdom to gain from meditating on our darker aspects. These lessons help grow our Soul and reconnect us to the source of Light and Love. These lessons help us understand what is truly important to our Soul and help shed light on how we can make the world a better place by being more authentic and empowered.
