Embracing the Winter Solstice: celebrate A Soulful Journey

This musing is a poetic invocation- it draws inspiration from ancient wisdom, intuitive whispers, and the cosmic symphony.

Winter’s Cloak

This year I do not want
The dark to leave me.
I need its wrap
of silent stillness,
its cloak of long-lasting embrace.

Too much light has pulled me away
from the chamber of gestation.
Let the dawns come late,
let the sunsets
arrive early,
let the evenings extend themselves
while I lean into
the abyss of my being.

Let me lie in the cave
of my soul,
for too much light blinds me,
steals the source of revelation.
Let me seek solace
in the empty places
of winter’s passage,
those vast dark nights
that never fail to shelter me.

– By Joyce Rupp

By the Light of the Silent Night

In the hushed embrace of the longest night, we find ourselves at the threshold of cosmic wisdom. The winter solstice—the mystical pivot point where darkness and light dance in eternal rhythm—beckons us to delve into the tapestry of our souls. Here we find our connectedness to ether- in stillness and our rest and solace in the Darkness

The Alchemy of Darkness

The Womb of Creation: As the sun retreats, the veil between realms thins. We stand on the precipice of creation, akin to alchemists stirring the primordial cauldron. Within this darkness lies the seed of all possibilities—a cosmic embryo awaiting our intention.

The Stillness Within: In the quietude of winter, we shed layers of noise and distraction. Our senses attune to subtler frequencies—the whispers of ancient trees, the crystalline hum of frost-kissed air. Here, we encounter the essence of our being—the unstruck chord that resonates beyond time.

The Sacred Rituals

Candlelit Vigil: Light a solitary candle—an earthly Star—meditate upon its flame, tracing new dreams of Hope and illumination in the darkest hours.

The Alchemical Elixir- remember your Breath in this cold Void- inhale the icy breath of the cosmos. Exhale your intentions—a cosmic exhale that reverberates through the star-studded fabric of existence. Feel the alchemical transformation within.

A Stardust Infusion: Consume foods rich in stardust—dark chocolate, pomegranate seeds, and spiced teas. Imagine each morsel infusing your cells with cosmic memory—the echo of ancient constellations.

The Inner Sanctum

The Inner Hearth Within your Heart’s hearth, tend to the sacred fire. Stoke it with gratitude, forgiveness, and dreams. Let it burn away what no longer serves—the old stories, the frozen fears.

Celestial Mapping: Gaze upward. Trace the constellations—the mythic narratives etched across the velvet canvas. In their alignment, find your own soul’s constellation—a roadmap to purpose and destiny.

Closing the Circle

As dawn tiptoes across the horizon, honour the returning light. Whisper your intentions to the newborn sun. Know that you are a vessel of cosmic alchemy—a seeker, a weaver of starlight.

In this sacred dance of solstice, may your Soul find rest, renewal, and remembrance.
