Now that summer is here, many of us are having a little more time to slow down, take off from the regular routine, and give ourselves the gift of enjoying the outdoors and a bit of sunshine. The world of deadlines and demands becomes a little more forgiving, as work and school schedules lighten up a bit and many of our colleagues are off on vacation. We're finding the time to hang out more with friends and family, go to the shore or camping, or just stay home and experiment with new recipes on the grill.
Throughout the winter season, the Earth turns away from the sun, reducing our access to its strong warming light, dropping temperatures, and beckoning us to retreat within where it is quiet and dry. We set up the hearth fires and bundle up in sweaters and socks. Nature, herself, pulls back her energy: animals slow down and enter hibernation, rivers and lakes freeze over, and plants and trees draw back their saps from the fallen leaves and branches, returning it back to their roots where they can grow and forge a stronger foundation for the coming year.
For the holidays this year, I chose to take a few weeks off simply withdraw from the regular "busyness"
of productive work and return myself to the spiritual roots that have always been my guiding force within.
I don't know if I was born with these roots and this capacity to connect with a higher place or if it is something that I have been nurturing within myself since I was quite small. But I do believe that we all come from our own set of spiritual roots, and it is our journey here to use them to return Home where we can remember Who We Really Are.
Are you taking the time during this post-holiday season to think of what it is in your life you'd like to transform into something higher and better?
In this 11 minute episode, hear directly from Spirit (through channelled material previously received) how important it is to set aside time to be with Spirit in quiet contemplation.
It is only through the ability to receive higher guidance that we can make problems and challenges in our lives disappear, and become more smoothly resolved in less time.
In this 18 episode, more support is given to you to really see how important it is to look at the time that you have, and manage it well.
By designating more and more specific slots to be focused on doing the things that you really love, you'll find yourself reaching your dreams and goals at a much faster pace than you ever thought possible.
