This week, we draw down into the darkness, into our own darkness, to remember and call forth the light returning. It is the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It can be a very long winter. Feel like there is such a long path ahead. Especially now. Hope is so important. When our motivation can be low, it requires that we dip in deep to intrinsic Inspiration. Bringing up hope and resonance for response, rather than reaction, to this darkness.
There is an urgency here, as I feel the ancient pulls of celebration of pregnant ewes in the old world. The warmth of hearth fires against the strain of cold outside. I seek my answers in chilly soils this day, sinking my seeds into the straw and dung. Blessing the hands that plant, the heart that nurtures, and our property that hungers. I carry flower petals with me, to bring more beauty medicine into my day- a balance of masculine and feminine as the balance point. As in between winter and spring, this day is fruition in the joining of divine male and female, as in the sheep, made complete with swelling buds and milk.
Not for me, but as I tend the fertile soils and burn a red candle, may my heart be gladdened by the fertility dance in the garden, and celebrate the fecundity, the beauty, and the true presence of all that is growing, pulsing, budding and good. All that is REAL. Family. Friends. Community. Planet. May I be present enough to stay present. To bring myself back when the squirrels running their races and storing treasures off-shore have distracted me. Back to what is real. Back to what is needed of me, at this time. Back to the solid need for balance. And Breath. And Bone.
Friend, I send you a wish for balance in this, time of times. May our collective buds burst forth with abundant flowers and kindness yielding rich harvest steeped in our highest intentions. May we each support one another in our own highest good. May we find our voices to have the tool in asking for what we need. And from that overflow, sharing with another.
