Love is one of the most healing forces in the universe. It breaks down boundaries, brings people together, heals old wounds. Having love in your life is a corrective experience after trauma and neglect. Love brings us into vibrancy and flow. Love is a powerful and divine force that we all need to survive and thrive, and we gain as much by giving it as we do by receiving it.
Today we are at the darkest time of the year. The winter Solstice in the northern hemisphere is a sacred time to go inward and address the darkest parts of ourselves, both individually and as a society, to reflect and clear old patterns and wounds, so that we can turn towards the Light. It is a time to embrace the shadow self with understanding and compassion and accept it into the warmth of the whole to be healed. If we can understand the shadow, we can accept it. If we can accept it, we will be changed for good.
In these changing times, we are finding that we are becoming more polarized, more separate from each other, more remote. In truth, what is really happening is that we are becoming more of what we truly are, and the facades we’d projected onto ourselves and the world around us are finally falling away. Everything you are seeing in the world today is how it really is.
