Happy Winter Solstice! All the festivals we celebrate from Christmas to Hannukah are really about the Winter Solstice. In the northern hemisphere, the shortest day where we say goodbye to the long dark nights and welcome again the light of the spring. Oh I love this day as it’s an amazing time to release things that no longer serve us as we say goodbye. And on top of the Winter Solstice, it’s also a New Moon. The perfect time to plant the seeds for new intentions. Saying goodbye and planting seeds. A bit of a contrast but a wonderful way to clear the slate before setting goals!
I like to write down worries and prayers on cute little origami papers. I then fold them up and put them in a box under my bed. I do this to help me from worrying. After this year, I had quite the full box of worries. So today, I put them in a metal bowl and I burned them. It felt great to say goodbye to all those little things.
