Do you honor the dark and the light within you?
Or are there parts of yourself you run away from?
The dark within us – our fears, rage, unending grief – has its place too. When we reconnect to the darkness, we see the light it brings. It need not stay underneath the surface, unexpressed, hidden and repressed.
Today marks the winter solstice, a day of balance between the dark and the light. It also marks the return of the light, as the days slowly get brighter with the sun’s rays.
A short meditation to anchor in your soul’s light is available here. It is my gift to you. At only 7 minutes long, you can easily fit it into your day.
This inner light is your guide as you navigate the darker terrain. Ancient texts remind us to keep our eyes always toward the (inner) light even in the midst of darkness.
If you have a recurring emotion you “don’t like” or wish would “go away,” I invite you to devote time to exploring its presence – especially between now and the end of the year.
Let it rise to the surface. Talk to it. Where is it in your body? Notice any sensations, colors, desires, feelings, inexplicable urges. Be curious.
It carries a message for you – if only you are willing to see the light in the dark. If only you are willing to shine your light of love on it. If only you are willing to know yourself as worthy even while walking in the muddiest of waters.
The feelings that scare you won’t swallow you up or eat you whole. They will, however, when navigated consciously, take you to a new shore. A new, more expansive horizon.
Join me January 4 – 6, 2022 for a free online event to Activate your Feminine Power. The feminine is both the dark and the light. She is the void of new creation. She is the force that births new worlds. Learn more and register for free here.
May the light fully return in you, and may the darkness deliver its medicine.
