Solstice greetings Dec 2020

Solstice greetings!
We’ve made it to 21st Dec 2020
To those in the Northern Hemisphere – winter solstice greetings that mark the shortest day, and the welcoming back of the light.
To those in the Southern hemisphere – summer solstice greetings marking the longest day and the step into summer.
All is about balance – letting go of what you no longer wish/need to carry and making space for what is to come.
To plant seeds of energy, ideas, inspiration that will bear fruit in times to come.
However you mark the day (if at all) I wish you joy, happiness and abundance in all things.
It is potent, powerful energy which is almost tangible …….added to the Jupiter – Saturn conjunction well, use that energy wisely. Be concise, direct and set those intentions clearly.
Anything that would derail you has failed – keep doing your work, following your path and standing in alignment.

Mon 21st – Tue 22nd : Heed wise counsel

 
Ok so finally it has arrived. Solstice and the conjunction of Saturn & Jupiter on the 21st. This is big powerful energy. And for many (myself included) this is the move into the next year. Not the 31st which is a very bleak cold energy.
 
Some others see this as the shift in seasons and the shortest day after which the light begins to return (depending which hemisphere you are in if Southern it’s the longest day).
 
Now we have been told all year to use our discernment and listen to our inner voice. This HAS NOT CHANGED. It is still time to seek knowledge and truth even if the journey is difficult, painful or downright exhausting. All that work is starting to pay off. And you set the tone for those around you.
 
You will be privy to some information/confirmation from different sources over the start of the week (well the whole week in truth) and you need to sort the wheat from the chaff. So sense into it. If it feels right it will be , if it doesn’t feel right then challenge it.
 
Look to your elders and ask “what would my grandfather/grandmother /whoever pops to mind have done?”. In time you will become that person to someone else ……..So what legacy do you wish to leave? Sit with that one.
 
Take the time to listen to what comes forwards as wisdom can come from unexpected places.
 
The energies inbound are huge so treat them with respect. If you feel guided to take space for yourself to mark them then do so. My gut sense is keeping me away from any “global style” work right now and I will honour that.
 
Connect with the land where you live. Concentrate there first as it can often time be overlooked for far off places. You have your feet literally on that ground. Let those who are elsewhere connect where they are. It all links up energetically anyway.
 
For some other this wise counsel will come from YOU and your higher self. Give it space to be heard.
 
What you seed now will grow roots in the next 12 months (and 20 years) so be focussed, authentic and it will flow.
 
 

Wed 23rd – Thur 24th : Mermaid in a Koi pond – Become the dragon

 
Now this is a card that does come up many times through the year.
 
This is a period of transformation and transmutation of energies, narrative, voices you have taken on that are NOT YOURS. These have been programmed in, projected in or picked up through a sense of “it’s the done thing”.
 
And in taking them on you can lose the essence of who you are.
 
This is now a time to set all that is not yours aside, to come out of hiding and let yourself start to come forwards again.
 
Take ownership of your energy.
Take responsibility for what you think, feel and believe.
Step back into your own shoes, give yourself a wee shake and find that truth of yours.
Make sure your boundaries are in place, in good working order and ready to get going.
 
This has very much been a 12 month stint of projected crap after projected crap. So lets shake it all off …….
 
The card itself references a Japanese belief that Koi are unformed dragons. Lets give them a bigger pool of fresh water and allow that transformation to take place. Become the dragon (self empowered being) you are here to be.
 
We are still in the Solstice window so work with the energy as it’s potent power stuff.
 
 

Fri 25th – Sun 27th : Curiouser & Curiouser

 
And finally we hit the 25th . In many ways it’s been a long haul to get here and in others it’s blink and you miss it. You can take the time to have a look back and see what has taken place.
 
But don’t wallow in it as you only encourage that to step back in again. And you’ve done so much work to shift and clear that it would defeat the purpose.
 
But as Alice is showing I’m sure we can all agree it have been strange. That’s the polite version.
 
And we still have the potential for it to become even odder as those around us act a bit out of character, or those in power (or who we perceive to do so) act weird, or weirder if that’s even possible.
 
What is to be remembered is we have transitioned into the new energies of 2021 and for some it may feel unsteady. For others it will feel a blessed relief.
But that integration can take a little while. So if people are spinning out a bit don’t take it to heart. They are doing their best to adapt.
 
Instead focus on finding your balance first. Then you can help those still a bit wobbly.
 
These energies have the potential to drop unexpected turns of events. So again don’t be too surprised for swift changes of plans, 180o shifts or roadblocks lifting.
 
You still have he ability to question so use it. It can be the stabilising or anchoring point you need to navigate all this.
 
But always remember who you are. Be open to growth and change and you’ll find the core of yourself quickly.
 
 
 

Summary:

 
Start of the week – huuuuge energies inbound for Solstice and the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. Treat them and yourself with respect. Where you place your attention is important and potent so be clear and concise. Listen to your discernment/gut. If guided to do any form of earth or collective work focus on where you are physically rather than where you are not…….
 
 
Mid week– a time of growth, transformation and taking responsibility for yourself. If you still have other peoples crap ringing in your ears it’s time to dump the lot. And find your own voice once more. Feel the relief of fully stepping into your own energy without anyone else permission etc. You are a self empowered being – own it.
 
 
End of the week – it’s been a wild ride and has the potential for more of the same. But remember there has been a big energy shift and people are adjusting – some quicker than others. Look to your own balance first – and only when stable help others with theirs.

A Post Solstice Dragon Space

 

A post solstice event on 23rd December 2020

 

Typically Winter Solstice is a very private time for me. And I tend to take time off around it. Which I appear not to be doing this year.

2020 has been very different and with that I’m being guided to open up a Dragon Energy lead space on the 23rd. Right after Solstice, rather than before or on the day itself.

Quite what this will be I don’t fully know. Be it a chat space, a guided mediation. Or a combination of who knows what. I never know till we start.

What I do know is that it will help to integrate the new energies as we move from 2020 to 2021 – as the integration may be a little complicate for some, or a breeze for others.

This will be held on Zoom but I may live stream to Facebook if it feels right.

 

Who knows what exactly they will bring up

The event space itself will be free but I have added some donation style tickets for those who would like to donate towards my time and energy.

 

To reserve a free or donation space please go to the booking system, once booked you will receive a link to register for he call. Which will then give you a direct link for the call itself.

 

Hopefully see you there!

Solstice greeting and blessings to those who celebrate them. Here in the Northern Hemisphere its Summer solstice, for those in the southern hemisphere it’s Winter.

Marker point

Regardless of where you are solstice and equinox cycles are marker points. Giving you the opportunity to look back and look forwards at the same time. To let go of what’s not working and welcome in what’s new.

To take a short pause and simply be for a while.

And for others like yours truly it’s a time to face head on what’s been niggling at you for a full week. To realise it’s not just the challenging energies, not just the collective. No you’re being triggered by a shadow aspect that NEEDS to come up and be seen.

Shadow work + Solstice energies

The beauty of the summer solstice is it brings light. So much light. And for me this time round it’s shedding illumination on something that’s been “off” the past full week.

I haven’t quite been myself, my energy hasn’t been balanced and I’ve been very quite. Introspection isn’t a new thing for me but being silent is.

I had a crystal clear moment of realisation last night that what I was actually palming off as energies etc was my own crap lifting to the surface.

Moment of clarity

My “ah ha!” moment hit me like a proverbial tonne of bricks late yesterday evening and I’m going to share it with you to show we are all still human. Energy workers have their own crap to deal with and how quickly it can be dealt with when you face up to it.

Bit of background for you. For the past week I have been feeling quite on edge when seeing good friends of mine starting to forge ahead. Of getting themselves out there , doing their work and being seen. Now I am very very happy for all of them and I’m supporting them all the way. But with this has been a small niggle of myself going backwards or being left behind.

I know this is nonsense that it is an irrational fear. Hence my confusion at what was coming up. “Must be the collective”

Well no. It must be within me somewhere for it to trigger or activate a response. That was last nights light bulb moment.

Looking the shadow in the face

Once I realised I had been making excuses for myself I took a deep breath and decided to look deep into this one. What the heck was actually going on?

Deep in my higher heart I could feel this resistance, this fear bubbling away. It’s almost like an inferiority complex – which trust me is NOT me.

So what to do? First off to accept this was mine, I wouldn’t be having an emotional response if it wasn’t. Of deciding to be responsible and take action. Whether it is something I have placed in my own energy at some stage/life or if it has been placed there by something other is a little less clear.

Actually as I’m writing this I’m being shown it is a control programme that was placed there by something other to activate to keep me off my path.

Sorry guys , not working.
I see it, I see you and I say no I’m not stopping.

And breathe

With this acceptance, illumination and awareness the ability to breathe came back. I felt MYSELF come back.

The sense of relief was huge – and it all happened just before solstice so my higher self could let it transmute and dissolve away. I may have a few more layers to let go of but the core has been resolved.

Thats the beauty of doing your own work – hard and thoroughly uncomfortable as it can be at times – the more you do the faster it resolves.

Don’t be afraid of the shadow self, it’s still an aspect of you at some level.

Be brave and deal with it head on.

Looking back to look forwards

As I look back to when the photo I have used for this blog was taken I see how much has changed in my life. Five and a half years ago I took a huge leap of faith into the unknown and I’m still here. It was the best decision i could have made for myself.

Now I am doing my work, being offered incredible opportunities and more.
And I will not beat myself up for having a momentary wobble. A wobble that had to happen for this to be flushed up to the surface.

I have big things waiting to come in and I’m aware this morning if I hadn’t dealt with this it would have impacted what’s to come.

So it’s all good.
