Winter: Rest and Replenish
In the northern hemisphere, the Winter solstice is the day of the year (this year it is December 21) when the Sun is farthest south. The winter solstice marks the first day of the winter season. The declination of the Sun on the (northern) winter solstice is known as the tropic of Capricorn (-23° 27′).
As an expression in nature, The Winter Solstice is the time to reflect on the power of our spiritual beliefs and the belief in the power of ourselves! As we look forward to the beginning of a New Year, we look at ways to resolve issues and create resolutions that will manifest change for the better, in ourselves.
Winter is the time to take a good look at our health and our lifestyle. Start by looking at the life around you. Are you living in chaos? Is your home in a shambles? Is there clutter everywhere? You may want to consider starting with a good packing and storing session. Feng Shui, the ancient art of placement, can help you to find order in your life.
The temple, our physical bodies, are the only thing we have to carry the soul. When our physical bodies are not in proper working order, everything around us ultimately suffers. Our good health is all we have that stands between us and the aging process. The longer you keep your physical body in optimum health, the longer you have your temple to keep your soul on this plane. Detoxification is the best way to keep the body at its most ultimate working level.
By enjoying a healthy, nutritional diet, getting good quality sleep and moderate exercise this can keep our physical form at it’s best, always. Take the opportunities that are offered. Make the opportunities that are not. Find your priorities of life and give them merit. This is the best season to do this. This is the time when we have the greatest energy to utilize the power we are given!
