“Honor the dark before calling in the light. This is the season when animals hibernate and nature sleeps and we can turn inward too. This is a natural time for letting go and saying farewell. Release your resentments and regrets into the darkness, knowing they will be transformed.”
“The period between the Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice represents one of tremendous effort and striving—the necessary purification of the lower life, preparing it to be a fit temple for the soul.”
“At the Autumn Equinox, the length of day and night hours are equal, but light is decreasing.”
On September 22, 2012, a dark spirit attended our autumnal equinox celebration. Since then, there have been many blessings, but also much strife and volatility. In recent weeks, we’ve felt lighter, freer, happier. I have every confidence that on Friday, December 21, the winter solstice, we will be able to complete our purification from the dark aspect and continue with our journeys.
“The Winter Solstice—the longest night of the year—represents the deep and complete entombment of the soul in matter. Winter in this case, represents the stripping away of the personality attachments and desires.”
