Winter Affirmation Week 5
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
Allowing my depths to arise and guide,
I dream the many colors of my soul’s guidance.
When I get out of my head and let go of the impulse to immediately explain, my heart and soul have space to express.
The guidance of my soul comes through the words of my heart.
These are words of feeling, awareness, knowing.
The language comes clearly when I do not push or expect or deny.
Instead, in the quiet, when my relentlessness is checked, my soul speaks.
At first, tiny whispers which gathers strength to sing truth, joy, and dreams.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
When I am quiet, I can hear my heart say…
In this moment, I realize I am afraid to hear my heart because…
In the past, I have told myself I am not connected to my soul because. …
I can learn to trust my soul’s guidance when…
I trust my soul’s guidance because…
In this moment, for me I can dream…
Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
