My sense of change is gradual, as the energies slowly build towards the rebirth of Imbolc when the new spark of life is lit!
Saying that though, I did go to my friend´s house for a lovely dinner with some lovely women! We spoke about life, the year that has passed and what we want to call in.
As the Solstice energies are diminishing slowly I usually do a reading using oracle cards. This year I have done two readings designed by the lovely Sarah Cornforth. The first one was looking at what to leave behind and the second one was more about looking forward and seeing what I need to focus on.
Some cards were the same.... They both said I need to let go of the details! I am not quite sure how that is going to work, as I feel like I have just started understanding how looking at details can help me more forwards! So...I need to think about that one.
The other thing they both spoke about was that I need to listen to my heart. And I need to trust.
Well, that old trust thing!
But that was not what I came in here to write about! I was gonna share something about January 1st! I felt that my energy was unbalanced, and I did not feel grounded. So what is the cure for that?
Nature of course!
I packed my bag with some sage, sacred water, an apple, my rattle and my journal and headed off to a sacred place quite nearby. It is an ancient burial ground and ceremonial place.
I spent a couple of hours there with the stones and the trees and the magic of the land. And when I headed home I felt so much lighter.
I think the whole New Years Eve thing got me confused. I felt at odds with society. Well...nothing new there... And that is why I felt so weird. Also December was a very...challenging month, so I am so glad that I had the day to spend out there.
Mama Nature sure is a healer.
Love and blessings, Elin xx
