Winter Solstice is upon us once again.During this longest night of the year, we get ample time to sit in the darkness of our shadow. The Crone archetype LOVES to bring us here, because in her many years she has developed the ability to see in the dark. She can see how the places that scare us, the places that we reject and run away from, are the very ones that offer us the most power and stability, once we honor them properly. We sit in this long, dark night with Crone beside us, letting her show us the way to our own wise, resilient, powerful selves. As the sun rises, we are reminded that the dark is not permanent, and it is now time for the sun to come closer to our true selves, one sunrise at a time.
Whether the term Shadow Self is new to you or old hat, please know that it is working big time in your life right here, right now. As I pointed out in last week's blog, we are smack dab in the middle of 2013. The great time of accelerated change and trasformation is kicking in to high gear. For us to really become even more present with what is happening right now, we need to understand where we are coming from and where we are going.
Each one of us has now been given the opportunity to use this time to attain our highest soul's potential. According to Sabrina Reber in her life raft of a workbook called, "How to Raise Your Vibration" : "This is a personal choice where we choose through our own free will to no longer experience the negativity of 3rd dimensional darkness and choose to transform the density of our being into a light being where we put on our garments of light ascending into the higher vibrations of full consciousness, unity consciousness, unconditional love, peace, joy, harmony, spiritual abundance, health and healing."
