Winter Solstice and Christmas Blessings from my home to yours!

I am sure many of you have felt the shift in energy as we move toward the Winter Solstice and the anticipation for the major shift we will experience in 2024. It can feel a little unsettling and even scattering for our energy when we reach these tipping points in the year. 

Take some time at the winter solsice to ground your energy, by spending some time in nature and also to open up to your intuition, tapping in to the amazing energetic possibilities waiting to be invited in for the year ahead. Make space to welcome them in and for them to manifest. 

Solstice means “standing of the sun” Glennie kindred Sacred Celebrations

When the sun reaches the peak of its journey, stops and then begins the return journey toward the light, we reach the last energetic tipping point for this year. From the winter solstice the sun is waxing or growing towards its peak at the summer solstice in June 2024.

Now is the time to stop and take stock of what the last 6 months have brought to you and look forward to the direction in which you would like to travel and grow into in the next six months. For the next six months we are moving into the light, expanding into our fullest expression.

As we come to the shortest day of the year on the 21st we take stock of how things are flowing for us in every area of our life. Thinking about what we are now ready to release at the shortest day of the year and what we would like to invite in for the year ahead. Releasing blockages so that we can flow forward into the year ahead.

New Growth and rebirth

Even in the depths of Winter new roots are growing, bringing stability and nutrients to the plants and trees. Deeply buried bulbs are beginning to send up the first hardy shoots. Nature has slowed down waiting for the energy to change at the solstice and for the warmth to slowly but surely return. 

The solstice is the suns birthday, a celebration of its rebirth. This is the time for us to bring our inner journeys out into the world, birthing our visions for the way ahead.

Solstice Ceremony

Lighting candles to mark the return of the sun is an old tradition, their flickering light reminding us that although still weak, the sun is growing stronger beginning the journey back to its full peak.

Buy or make a special candle to represent your most special hopes and dreams for the next six months. Disperse some incense to cleanse your aura visualising bright sparkling light surrounding you.

Clean your home with salt water. Create a special space where you can light a candle to set your intentions.

Bring in a pine spray or pine cones or disperse some pine essential oil – pine or fir was honoured by the Celts for its ability to offer insights and see far beyond the present. 

Use this time of solstice to celebrate connections with family, friends and your tribe. 

Gratitude

Open your heart in a spirit of generosity and gratitude – this opens the channels for all new possibilities. Gift yourself a gratitude journal and write a few lines in it every night from 21st December to 21st June.

I would especially like to express my gratitude to all of you for your continued support and companionship on our feng shui journey together over the past year and I look forward to seeing you again in the new year as the adventure continues!

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful Winter Solstice, and Christmas!

In love and light,

Edel

In this annual class we dive deeply into the flow of the five elements in feng shui, in our own personal journey and how best to support ourselves within our own homes and in our relationships with those around us. 

We are all born with a specific energetic signature which represents the potential energy we were born with. Understanding your own personal energy is key. This allows us to tap into the full potential that we were born with and explore some parts of ourselves that may yet be untapped.
