Today is December 21st. The Winter Solstice. In some circles, it is known as the “Feast of Potentials”. I love that – The Feast of Potentials.
If you believe in astrology, this year the Winter Solstice is particularly powerful. Today the Sun not only enters Capricorn but Saturn as well which foretells a major energy shift for all of us. If you’re an Empath or Highly Sensitive, perhaps you feel it too. I felt the shift last night.
So let’s take advantage of this Feast of Potentials and this glorious shifting of energy.
Today, make a vow to let go of anything unwanted in your life. Let go of anything you believe is holding you back or keeping you from what you desire.
One of my favorite rituals is to write down exactly what I want to let go then burn it outside in the fire pit.
I write a note for each unwanted thing. Note I said “thing”, not person or circumstance. It’s extremely important to get to the deepest emotion or feeling of what you want to let go, and that is never a person. It’s always best to uncover the feeling you have about that person or that event/circumstance. You want to let go of the feeling(s) because the particular person or event doesn’t really matter. The feelings are the key!
If you’ve been through a BreakUp this year as I have, consider that the feelings behind your sadness, tears or inability to move forward might consist of:
- Fear of rejection
- Fear of abandonment
- Fear of being alone
- Post Traumatic Stress (particulary if abuse is involved)
- Unspecified fear
I believe that there are really only two emotions – love and fear. Anything that feels good is love. Anything that feels bad is fear. If you can get to the essence of what you’re feeling, it dissipates so much more quickly.
Let me say that again: If you can get to the essence of what you’re feeling, it dissipates so much more quickly.
For me, it’s mostly about grief that the vision I had for my future is now gone. I’m having to envision my future from scratch again. For a while, I only saw this opportunity as a bad thing.
Well now, I’m completely in love with crafting my future exactly as I want it to be. I get to choose! How cool is that? I get to choose!
The places, the people, the animals, the feelings, the emotions…. Isn’t is just so delicious to realize that you get to choose??
So spend the day today really getting in touch with how you feel. Tonight, perform some kind of cleansing ritual to let it go. Then let’s perform some Magic!
It’s a new Solar Year! What do you want to attract into your life? What is your heart’s desire? Health? Happiness? Love? Money? Whatever it is, shift your thoughts and your words toward what you want.
Focus on what you want. Ignore the rest. Write down all your wishes.
Put them in a beautiful box or jar. Meditate on them. Picture your ideal day – where are you? Who’s with you? What are you doing? What’s the weather? What do you smell? What are you touching? Feel into the feelings of satisfaction and contentment. Feel the joy of living your ideal day.
Every time you glance at your Jar of Wishes, feel the feelings of being perfectly happy and content. Take a deep breath. Relax into the satisfaction of enjoying everything your heart desires.
Remember, today and always, it’s your choice. You can choose to live in the past or you can choose to live in the present with your compass pointed toward the future.
I know which one I’m choosing!
Solstice Blessings to you and yours!
