Today marks the winter solstice, the shortest day and longest night of the year. Today is the official start of winter and the return of days with increasing sunlight.
For many cultures, the winter solstice is a time of celebration and a reminder of the natural cycles of the earth. Times have been busy and dark, but our hopeful future lingers in the next season, just around the corner. This is a time to gather with our loved ones, reflect on the past year, and look forward to the new beginnings of the coming season.
I always find it ironic that that coldest days of winter are still yet to come, despite the sun's return. It reminds me that when we are going through dark nights of the soul, the blessed future we are working for is already on its way, even before we can feel or recognize that positive changes are already occurring.
Winter solstice reminds us to never give up hope, and to keep moving forward, as the seasons always change, and winter always turns to spring.
As we embrace the winter solstice, take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the season and the warmth of the people around us. I'm so glad for you here, and how all of the interactions I've had with people this year have contributed to Healing Heart Reiki being such a wonderful place in our minds and hearts. Thank you my friend!
Happy winter solstice!
