In The Darkness Shines Your Light…

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”

~Leonard Cohen
Winter sun beaming through misty forest

Dear ones, here we go again, transiting into the darkest nights of the year! How are you doing? For many of us, this time of the year reveals a myriad of emotions, but since there is a crack in everything, it is surely to allow the light to emerge. In the winter months, but especially during the Winter Solstice, according to the wisdom of  many ancient traditions, it has been the time of the year to stop, to reset our energy and build new strength for the next seasons to come. By deepening our roots for strength, we bring the light to our darkest places so that we can see our shadows. This is a call to be quiet, and to listen with curiosity, kindness, love and compassion. These shadows are not there to hurt us. They are simply calling for our help and attention as they are exiled part of our human experience, individually and globally, wanting to come to the light to be seen and heard for healing. By recovering and redeeming them, we can then remember the essence of our being, our innocent nature, the freedom to be, to create, to share, to unite and rejoice!

As the element for winter is water, and as we remember who we are, how appropriate it is to shine our light in unity with those who stand with the water protectors at the Oceti Sakowin camp at Standing Rock, Dakota. Us, human beings, are we not the children of the Earth? Nature is talking to us all over the world. Are we listening? Can we listen? The birds are talking to us, the bears, the wolves, the eagles, the elephants, the lions, the cougars, the rhinoceros, the trees, the plants, the earth, the air, the water… Can we listen? We are presently undergoing a historical episode of our human chapter and where for several months,  unprecedented numbers of First Nations and people from all over the world have united to be heard, to be a voice for the water, the earth, for all races, for all sentient beings and for all life. Are we willing to listen?

will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

Inspiration of the Month

To continue to be inspired about the power of the light, here is “Anthem” by Leonard Cohen, loved and renowned Canadian poet and singer-songwriter who recently passed suddenly. I am happy to honour him today, and to express gratitude for his light! (21 Sep 1934 – 7 Nov 2016).

Leonard Cohen – Anthem

It is with deep gratitude for each one of you, and for my family, friends, and community, that I wish you a Bright Holiday Season and a Wholehearted New year! As nature pauses to take a moment of silence  for us to listen… may we find Love, Peace and Happiness within, and let the gratefulness overflow into blessings all around us!

In Health and Joy,

“May the light crack through our shadows, bringing global healing to our individual, collective and earthly wounds, so that we may become united to cultivate love and peace for all beings on earth!”
