Winter Solstice is a rebirth of the sun and a celebration of darkness turning into light. This start of the solar year, is also known as the Feast of Yule and is celebrated for 12 days. On December 31st, ten days following the Winter Solstice, we will celebrate the start of the solar year and the return of light. When we are born again at Winter Solstice, along with the birth of the sun, we are born into our divine nature. We are the light. We are on a journey, just like the moon and the sun, cycling through the seasons—living, dying and re-birthing, finding meaning in our existence here on earth. And in the light ~ all is one.
Ritual gives life meaning and purpose. It honors and acknowledges the unseen that connects us all. We will ring in the new year consciously and with the spirit of intention.
Setting intention is quite different than goal making. It is not oriented toward a future outcome. Instead, it is a path or practice that is focused on how you are "being" in the present moment. Your attention is on the ever present "now" in the constantly changing flow of life. You set your intentions based on understanding what matters most to you and make a commitment to align your worldly actions with your inner values.
Tonight Vanessa Benlolo will lead in ritual to release into the darkness what no longer serves us to be transformed and we will receive our intentions, with sincerity and love. We will hold what we receive with purity of intention and amplify it within the collective.
You may bring an object or symbol representative of the spirit of an intention you are desiring to bring into the light and cultivate in the new year. Alternatively or in addition, you may also choose to wear light, bright, yellow or gold colours to bring the light to the spirit of your intention.
Vanessa is a Professionally Trained & Certified Generational Healer™ & Spiritual Guide.
