Winter Affirmation Week 6
Tools to dig deep into the transformative energy available in connection with this season!
Allowing my depths to arise and guide,
I dream of open fields ready for my journey.
The cold layer across the Winter landscape can be deceptive.
What seems devoid of growth actually is in rest, preparing for future creation.
When I stop my inner judgment and take a moment to consider,
I find within me a path towards the fields of my Best Self.
I find what I need.
I find all that I dream.
I find I’m preparing for my journey – I am preparing to begin.
Spark Notes: writing prompts to spark reflection and contemplation
I feel empty inside when…
I underestimate myself because…
I feel this opening within me…
I see opportunity when…
I am preparing my journey by…
In this moment, for me I can dream…
Goodness is not in the backyard of the individual nor in the open field of the collective; goodness flowers only in freedom from both.
Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be…Close your eyes, let your spirit start to soar, and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.
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
