I have truly embraced the winter inwardness this year. Perhaps more than any other. It was a pivotal year for me 2019 and I am still reordering from all that occurred. It is wild that we so often move, move and move more. I am one to do this, get involved in many projects, activities and adventures. This last few months, I have done none of this usual Lyn things. It has been healing, slow, integrating time for me. When I used to be an organic grower, we so delighted in this imaginative time of year. I feel called to do very little which is so out of character. I just listen and await the call.
Believe me, my mind is often nagging me to get going and doing. I have challenged this in 2020 for I want to move because I am fully inspired not just for movements sake. I moved so much last year for I had no choice and I believe my body deva has rightfully settled on claiming a full rest. Not a day or two or even a week. But slow months of self care, romancing myself, study, visits with friends at my bird nest home. a few clients and very bulb like behavior. I am honoring this body of mine in a new way this year and honestly feel a greater grounding into myself.
As one who shares energy, how to shift, move and embody, I am having my own metamorphosis in this. I felt it before my illness as a sensation of feeling my feet and hands more subtly like my spirit was sinking into me deeper. It was a different feel and I thought is was fun and expanding. I did end up with illness, like my spirit pushed out whatever mess was going on in body. Cleansing it deeper and allowing the reset of my temple vessel. This has never occurred in such a way as yet. I am inspired by these new energetic sensings that I believe continue to get more clear the more you are aware. All of us changing in cellular ways even if we don't know it. Part of the winters work. The harboring of light within, growing, clearing and intensifying for the next season of emergence.
I am sure most are moving a bit more than me yet I encourage you to use this winters rest to support your upcoming year. All of nature cycles very purposely. For new creation needs rest, review and allowance of space for creative impulse. I feel this year is going to be big in activity and transformation so I want to be clear and ready to manage all the good to come. Winter has a very important part in the story of our life. Review, rest, reflect and create. All things that take inward time alone. There is no other way to do it.
How are you connecting with your inner spirit? How are you listening to the newness that wants to be birthed in the next season? Are you taking time to craft a new year? Pruning what is no longer working and allowing your life to have a new look? Are you challenging your old beliefs as we all grow with each experience and come out more wise? Are you using the cocooning phase of the year to your advantage? Are you resting, reflecting and loving on your wonderful body being? I certainly am. I feel the time will end soon with the Imbolc approaching where the inward growth begins underground. The energy will push up and out calling us to play and interact with greater vitality..
Be sure to use the cycle of the season as your guide. It has a greater purpose than just the beauty of nature. We are life and connected to all we see and it's pace effects us deeply on the physical level. Use this guide to support health, beauty, well being and becoming a greater expression of you. It has a rhythm for a reason. When you ride along with it, the spring will offer greater health and expansion then when your don't.
Happy winter inward rest to you!
