The Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st at 11:29 PM in the Boston area of the US. It marks the shortest day and longest night of the year. Daylight time will be merely 09 Hours, 04 Mins, and 27 Secs. During Pagan times it was observed by many cultures who were celebrating the return of light. In modern times many still honor this day throughout the world. It is the first day of Winter.
Many spend some amount of time recognizing the Solstice with either parties and/or meditations. You can celebrate with a group or on your own, it's up to you. I'll be heading to a Solstice Ritual tomorrow night at the Theosophical Society Center for Spiritual Studies in Arlington Center. It is beatifully put together by the Vice President of the Center. You are welcome to join us if you wish and can get further information on the Events page at TSBoston.org so please come if you'd like.
At the event I'm attending I decided to guide everyone through a Shamanic Healing of sorts. We were asked to bring a poem or short piece of writing that resonates with us if we chose to. Initially I thought about bringing a poem and then decided that I wanted to bring a piece of art which I had created. Visual art is like a poem without words. I decided to bring, "Shamnic Heart Healing" with me. When I picked up the piece The Universe fed me a few words. It's not a poem, but a healing experience. I work as a Crystal Healer and have been trained in various forms of Energy Work. I would like to share the healing experience with you.
In Shamanism the arrow is symbolic of a type of healing. It is covered with medicine and heals when it pierces. If you are reading this then you have been guided by the universe towards an arrow healing. Following is a visualization for you to practice.
Please relax your eyes,
Feel yourself sitting in your seat,
Notice the sensations within your body,
Hear the sounds around you near and far,
Hear the sounds as they move into silence,
Feel the air near your body, against your face,
Feel the breath as it comes in and goes out,
Visualize an Arrow in your mind's eye,
This is your arrow, it holds the medicine you require,
See the Arrow move towards the chakra, body part, or area of your life that requires healing at this time,
Visualize the arrow piercing the area and bringing medicine.
The healing has begun now and will continue throughout the Winter months.
By the Spring Equinox you will awaken, reborn, healed and ready to plant the seeds for the Spring.
