A Time of Rest & Renewal

I’ve always loved winter here in the northern hemisphere. I love the snow, the cuddling under warm blankets when it’s freezing outside. As a natural night owl, I love the long nights. I love that as a self-employed person, I am able to schedule my work and balance it with the seasons. I think I’ve naturally been drawn to living my life seasonally, and so I’ve never found winter to be challenging. It is true that our culture makes it difficult to live in natural rhythmic cycles, and that’s so unfortunate. We would be much happier, much healthier if we would simply synch to the natural world. 

"The winter solstice time is no longer celebrated as it once was, with the understanding that this is a period of descent and rest, of going within our homes, within ourselves, and taking in all that we have been through, all that has passed in this full year which is coming to a close... Like nature and the animal kingdom around us, this time of hibernation is so necessary for our tired limbs, our burdened minds.

...The natural tug to go inwards as nearly all creatures are doing is strong and the weather so bitter that people are left feeling that winter is hard because, for those of us without burning fires and big festive families, it can be lonely and isolating. Whereas winter is kind, it points us in its quiet, soft way towards our inner self, this annual time of peace and reflection, embracing the darkness and forgiving, accepting, and loving embracing goodbye the past year.

Winter takes away the distractions, the buzz, and presents us with the perfect time to rest and withdraw into a womb-like love, bringing fire & light to our hearth.... And then, just around the corner the new year will begin again, and like a seed planted deep in the earth, we will all rise with renewed energy once again to dance in the sunlight.

May Winter bless you with its invitation for rest, rejuvenation, and peace." ~Brigit Anna McNeill
