We’re excited to announce our newest month-long campaign, “Winter Solstice: From Dark To Light” that runs until the 31st - our way of introducing new tips and ideas to cleanse your life and begin anew as the year closes. (You can participate here!) This topsy-turvy year shook all of humanity to the core. None of us were ready for the changes that took place and the emotions that followed. But as we approach the shortest day and longest night of the year, perhaps we can utilize this introspective time to process the dark aspects we’ve been experiencing and invite the light to come forward.
The Winter Solstice has been celebrated for thousands of years by ancient cultures all around the globe. It was revered as a period of death and rebirth, of facing the darkness inside us and making peace with the struggles faced throughout the year. Today, we still recognize this regenerative power. It’s a time of self-reflection that induces much-needed healing so that we may rebuild, refine, and reawaken.
We need to embrace this restorative time more than ever, wouldn’t you agree? The Winter Solstice grants us the opportunity to find unification within and outside of us. We can use this period to let go of negative beliefs, relationships, and situations we’ve been holding onto. We can focus on the things we want and remove unwanted things from our lives. We can face the things that trigger inner resistance and tension, and release it into the past. We can practice gratitude for all the ‘goods and bads’ that helped us grow through the year. We can purge emotionally, physically, and spiritually. And we can recognize that we are exactly where we need to be. Things will get better, as nature often shows us. This darkest time of the year is only the beginning of a brand new cycle that’ll unfold fresh beliefs, ideas, initiatives, and relationships. So thank 2020 for what it’s taught us, and then toss it out the window. Now is the time to welcome the new year with open arms and a renewed mindset so that change can be created.
So join the campaign today to gain tips and ideas to make this process smoother. And of course, Happy Winter Holidays!
