21/12/2017 | eaglespi | Leave a comment Celebrating Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year and celebrating your own inner light is a wonderful way to honour the ebb and flow of energies that you experience as a sensitive soul. “In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” Albert Camus At times, before you understood that as a sensitive soul you have particular self-care needs to better manage your energy, you may have felt rather in the dark about why you feel everything so deeply. Now that you understand that it is your ability to be compassionate with others that brings a rich texture to your life and a profound ability to walk in another’s shoes, it is time to celebrate your sensitivities! We are going to ‘en-lighten’ the situation. You are absolutely perfect the way you are, otherwise you would have been born differently. There are no mistakes and so you need not hide your sensitivities. They actually can help you navigate your world more easily when you pay attention to them. Today’s Holiday Tip: As the light slowly falls this evening, I am inviting you to reflect on any judgements are perceived limitations you have held about your life due to your sensitivity. With the Winter Solstice it is a wonderful time to let go of that darkness and welcome a more en-lightened perspective. When you are ready to let go of the self-judgement about your unique gifts as a deeply feeling person, allow yourself to bring the awarenesses to the light. You may wish to write the judgements down in your journal, or if you enjoy holiday rituals, you can incorporate this into your Winter Solstice celebration. You can symbolically burn the judgement in the fire or do it using a candle. Or you may wish to sit in silence and send love to yourself, illuminating the darkness you have drawn round you with the judgements you have made. Taking time to witness your inner darkness and then shine your divine light upon it is a perfect way to celebrate YOU and honour nature’s rhythm too!
