Winter Affirmation Week 11
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
Allowing my depths to arise and guide,
I dream of travel companions.
Life is a journey, not a destination.
A journey made better with companions.
The journey may be one of solitude, yet the presence of others brings light and perspective I can’t see.
Their presence opens my heart.
In the renewal, I can return their favor with my light and my presence.
The exchange an elixir which ignites the emergence of my path.

The Transformative Energy of Winter
In the season of Winter, the Soul digs deep into the soil to connect with the creative seeds of dream, hope, and desire.
This is not about determining the exact steps of a path, instead this is about allowing the path to move toward you with gift, presence, and awakening.
Allow the essence of you to step forward, to be heard, to be attended to, to guide.
Within the transformative energy of Winter is time to DREAM.
To Dream: Allowing the depths to arise and guide.
In dream, you don’t hold back.
Instead, the motion of Winter is one of attention and awareness to the roots within as they prepare to give rise to the vision of heart and soul.
Winter holds the warmth of roots to be passed back as the growth of Spring requires nutrition.
The new growth makes a choice about presence and progression, making decisions about shape and expression within the warmth of Summer.
And as the sun completes her journey, the soul reaches to embrace new growth yielding clear intention for next steps, new journey.
As Winter progresses, the inward flow begins the motion out toward the claim of Spring and the outward unleashing of Summer.
The entire year is fueled by Winter dreams.
Your Best Self expands and redefines the path, the journey, the dream of life.
In Winter, allowing the depths to arise guides your Best Self to the dreams of all of you, body, mind, heart, and soul.Excerpt from Winter: Dream the Arising of Your Best Self
