Illumination Meditation: A Prayer of Light for Year’s End
Yesterday was Winter Solstice. Today marks the turn of the year that signifies the return of the light. Scientifically the days get longer, and nights get shorter. Spiritually, it’s a powerful time to tap into the “divine” light to reflect on the past year, to release any shadow like stuff – blame, shame, disappointment – using the power of self-compassion and to invite the Divine to shine the light ahead into 2017.
I spent the day with Noah yesterday reflecting on the surprises and successes we each had. As well as sharing the ‘shorts’ – the disappointments and failures – and then using a super power practice I shared with you all at the Super Power Reflection Ritual on Sunday to release the self judgments and criticisms around them so we could make choices next year that honor what we each desire. Then I spent two hours with my acupuncturist releasing those shadowy emotions from my body. Then filled up with sweetness and love with “a dinner + a ritual” with my soul sister Shiloh Sophia over pasta and red wine. We shared and witnessed each others successes and disappointments, clearing the way for more light to guide our paths this coming year. So soul nourishing, all of it.
Today, as the light returns, I invite made you a special “illumination meditation + super power prayer” this morning … in honor of the returning of the light that started yesterday… in honor of you really receiving the light that you are and the difference your light has made… and in honor of you completing this year with less of the shadows of blame, shame, criticism, disappointment from the past year and MORE LIGHT to guide and illuminate your path into 2017.
Tune into this episode of Feminine Power Time – a special year end meditation - with me Christine Arylo and I will share some of the feminine wisdom that will keep you connected to what sustains and nourishes you this season, and set the seeds for what’s to come in the new year.
