This Sunday is Winter Solstice and I am so looking forward to sharing this day with like minded people and celebrating this change of season in a special way. This special playshop will be co-facilitated by my dear friend Sue Kemsley and between us, we have many years of experience and many techniques to help facilitate a shift in ourselves and use the group energy and the power of community to amplify our intentions.
In simpler words we will help release emotions, blocks and things that are holding us back, so that we can then manifest what we desire into our lives.
“Solstice” comes from two Latin words: Sol meaning ‘sun’ and sister meaning ‘to stand still’ this is because it appeared as though the sun and moon had stopped moving across the sky. The longest night of the year, followed by the renewal of the sun. This demonstrates the cyclical order of the cosmos. In this way, celebrating the solstice can be a beautiful remembrance that our lives are part of a larger order, always changing, always renewing. It is an ideal time to leave some things behind and by performing simple rituals with personal meaning to celebrate the solstice, these rituals will serve as touchstones to help us cultivate an attitude of receptiveness and appreciation that will carry us through the next season with more ease.
Sharing food, an important part of any celebration, is particularly meaningful during the solstice, as it represents faith in the return of the sun and the harvest and abundance.
The Law of Attraction
The beliefs and behaviors that we have adopted over the years are the reasons or blocks to manifesting our desires..
As I mentioned in my previous blog about making a list with my kids about the ideal home we wanted to live in – it really was that easy.
We made the list and here is the important part – we got excited about it. We allowed ourselves to FEEL how it would be to live in such a home, we trusted that it would happen and then … we forgot about it. The trust we had in the process allowed us to let it go and then we found the home. It was quite exciting to find this list recently, after totally forgetting and then the realization that we had received everything on that list brought such wonderful gratitude and wisdom of this process.
Another block or belief can be that it is hard, we over- think things and that can be a dream killer. One of my favorite motto’s is KISS – Keep It Simple Sweetheart . That is exactly what my children and I did above – simple but specific.
It might be good to start small with your manifesting and build on the feelings that generate when they manifest. It’s like anything in life – practice makes perfect. We usually ask for a parking space and always believe there is one available for us and there usually is and then we fell gratitude and give thanks. You could also use simple opportunities to manifest wishes – like when you blow out a birthday candle (feel how it would be for your wish to come true), when an eyelash falls to your cheek or when you see synchronistic times on your clock like 11.11. Use as many opportunities as you can to have fun with this process – to feel and manifest.
The next step is then to dream big, seemingly impossible dreams! As the saying goes, “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss – you’ll land among the stars”. There is no reason why we can not have our dream home or car or an abundance of money. To harness the power of The Law of Attraction, we must realize that we have unlimited potential. Daring to dream big is a sign to the universe that you believe that anything is possible, or at the very least, that you are on your way to believing. Take some time and think about what it would feel like to be a billionaire or to change the world. Money certainly gives you that freedom and that is my motivation – the more money I have – the more I have to share with others.
I am looking forward to letting go, or at least transforming some more blocks and beliefs, this weekend to enable me to dream bigger and manifest more.
With gratitude for this abundant universe!
