In my last post I wrote about the season and the celebration of Yule and the Goddesses associated with that.
As I said the, this season is one of stillness and inner peace. It can also be stagnation and frustration. The frustration comes when we can not handle the stillness and sink back into a restful way of being.
I am good at resting. I love taking it easy. I LOVE time off work. I love it too much, even.
There are so many fun things that can be done when I do not have to be interrupted by going to work every day! But anyway...
I have really enjoyed the energies. I have taken it easy. I have meditated a lot. I have exercised (once I got rid of my horrible cold...). This season is good for me since I am a hermit. So maybe it is not good at all then...since it gives me reasons not to go anywhere..
But the stillness can also help us live more mindfully. We can allow ourselves to slow down our walk. To stop and look at a frosty twig. To notice and admire the snow crystals on the windows.
I like to use my Instagram account to upload photos of my mindfulness moments. Because I love to share beauty. My LadySparkleArt account is open, so come and join me there!
Soon we are moving back towards the fiery spark and the new awakenings of Imbolc. I will write more about that then!
With love, Elin
