It has been three weeks since my last confession….I mean BLOG entry….and I can’t believe it has been so long since I posted anything! it certainly isn’t because there has been a shortage of happenings with us Berries in the Berry Patch!
We left Monterey after Thanksgiving and camped back in San Luis Obispo, which we have decided is our new homeplace. We just love it in SLO…the energy there is a GREAT match for us and where we want to go in our lives. We are so very grateful to have found our new location, and so easily and quickly! Now we have the task of manifesting actually living here!
We considered traveling around some more, but none of us want to, so we are stationed in SLO for the forseeable future. We are looking for a long-ish term solution to camp in the RV, perhaps a spot of private land someone would rent to us where we can plug in and live until we sell the Colorado properties and/or manifest other miracles! If you know of a possible solution or have a creative idea, please be in touch!
Today we are celebrating Solstice (Winter in this hemisphere). We find the Solstice to be much more where our hearts resonate during the whole holiday hoopla. For me, it is because the Solstice is not a man-made event chosen on some arbitrary day, but a celestial one, one that is way beyond our control as human beings to mis-interpret or twist to our agenda. It is very simple….it is the end of the long dark and the coming of the light. Good reason to celebrate in my view!
I have felt since the election that we have all been very tired….bone tired, in fact, as though lots of us have been in labor pains for many, many years, and that we finally succeeded in birthing this new era, symbolized by the election of Obama. I am weary from the effort, me thinks! But this is just the beginning…this baby is brand new and it will take a firm, wise and compassionate hand to raise it!
It feels so perfect to me that the Winter Solstice is following so closely after the election….I think of Solstice as a wonderful time to reflect on what I have learned in the last year, and to thank the Whole of Creation for all that it has brought to me…..and then to dream about the new cycle that is coming, the fresh year ahead. What do I desire? What are the next steps in my growth and understanding? How can I be the best Divine Human that I can be and be of service to the Whole? What is so very dear to my heart? These are all wonderful things to reflect on this day.
And tomorrow, we will have our version of the gift giving that occurs in other holidays…the day after Solstice feels like a day of abundance and celebration to me, an ushering in of the new energy that we are choosing to align ourselves with.
May you have a peaceful and fulfilling Solstice, and blessings to you and yours!
