Winter Affirmation Week 13
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
Allowing my depths to arise and guide,
I dream of an empowered transition to Spring.
In the rest of Winter, I gather the layers and seeds which will empower my motion into the next season of change.
Light is gathering, bringing new vision.
Opportunity is revealed as the snows begin to melt.
The rushing stream and the buds pushing forth tell me what I have created, sometimes unknowingly, from the dark.
For the cycles of the Earth turn within me, moving me from Spring to Summer to Autumn and then to Winter.
Each turn a renewal.
Each turn a beginning.
From the arising of Winter’s depths, I am willing to continue my journey into Spring.
I am ready to claim, to unleash, and to embrace because I have taken the opportunity to dream.

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
