What 2020 has taught me about my inner light.
In order to shine and be your best self you must learn to navigate through the dark and embrace your dark side.
And boy have I experienced some dark times… who hasn’t this year?
2020 was not an easy year yet it will be a memorable one for all of the untold challenges: a worldwide pandemic, that took many lives and impacted everyone financially, socially, emotionally and physically. It brought to light the injustices; systemic racism and inequalities that still need to be addressed and healed, and it brought us the most divisive elections in U.S. history. But throughout this year I have been constantly reminded to tap back into divine source, my inner compass and shine my light.
I also learned that it was okay to just be, okay to be in the thick of it and breathe, knowing eventually things would change, if I trusted and took action when called for.
Many of us did. We prayed, meditated, sought guidance, we faced our challenges with inner strength and were graced by the power and love of our ancestors and guides. There were times where we felt completely defeated and we woke up to see a new day.
Let’s continue to use the darkness as an opportunity to trust our souls and shine our inner light. As we do we will evolve and become more aware, uplifting all those around us.
December 21st, 2020 is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and the longest/darkest night of the year. This has so many spiritual meanings; it is a powerful transition, a portal between seasons, a time to celebrate the quiet, a time to release the past and what no longer works, and create new beginnings. This time brings forth transformation & healing energy.
This day is about…
looking inward and getting rid of all of the things you don't need to hold onto anymore.
taking a moment to consider all of the things that bring you joy and you wish to cultivate in the new year.
being in complete gratitude for all of the people, things and moments you’ve experienced; the good, the bad and the ugly.
Join me this Sunday, December 20th at 5:00pm EST for prayer and meditation at The Open Doorway along with Rev. Terence Harding, as I give a spiritual lecture on these changes and how we can continue to shine the light despite the darkness.
The Great Conjunction: The Gateway to The Golden Age
Before 2020 comes to a close, on December 21st, Jupiter and Saturn will be so close that they will appear to form an "elongated star." The Great Conjunction, as the planetary alignment has come to be known, hasn't occurred in nearly 800 years. This will be the "greatest" great conjunction for the next 60 years, until 3/15/ 2080.
The meeting of these two great planets will have us thinking, “What to release and let go of, so that we can have room and energy to create and bring into fruition?”
The Winter Solstice is a quiet time to go within and the Great Conjunction illuminates the way making this day a powerful time to harvest your desires and what you really want to create for yourself in the future.
Honor the ending and new beginnings in your life with ceremony or rituals. Celebrate with loved ones (socially distancing) or quietly reflect. However you wish to spend this day, do it with love. Love for yourself, love for your family/community, love for this planet.
You can also join the rest of the world in a peaceful global meditation on 12/21/20 at 1:22 EST. For more information visit http://www.globalpeacemeditation.com
May you find joy, peace and calm during the holidays and may 2021 bring you all that you wish for!
Peace, Light & Love,
