The Solstice Today; A time of Awakening

December 21, 2011,

Over the next several hours, all over the world probably in every different country, somewhere people will honour the Solstice - in prayer, meditation, vigil, ritual, or a mere brief remembering. It is one of those times, ancient beyond memory, when there is a coming together in spirit, and it is beautiful.

This is a time of sun and moon, night and day, winter and summer - a time of re-balancing, a time of endings and beginnings and a spiritual new cycle.For me, it one of the most significant and sacred days of the year when I feel the presence of God on our precious land most closely. The great Beings which are the representatives of God and of all the iconic spiritual and religious figures are near us today, particularly, as they guide and guard our courageous paths through life and far beyond.

This Solstice, today, is one too of awakening - awakening of spirit, of discernment, of action, of you. If you pause today to ask and you listen to the answer, you will know what it is you can do, today and tomorrow, to help yourself and to help your world. It is time for people everywhere to rouse themselves from the languor of familiarity from a life lived in the past in order to claim their present, in which their future lies. The time is now and the opportunity is now.

Remember what this Solstice means, if you can, for the more people that do so, the more extraordinary the results of this day will be. Your thoughts and prayers matter.


I have recorded a special guided meditation for the Solstice which is available free for members of the Website - it is accessible through the Members' Area. Everyone is welcome to join!
