I just wanted to send a reminder of an important Earth based Holy Day that has become obscured as “Ground Hogs Day”. That day is Candlemas, and takes places February 2. This day is the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, and is considered one of the most potent of all the cross quarter holy days of the year. It is the true beginning of Spring. And as such it is the time to set, or plant, for those who work with the Earth, your intentions for this coming year. Many of the religious traditions around the globe celebrate this, although by different names, but the power of this day is recognize everywhere.
Light a candle, both to acknowledge the purifying fire of this day, as well as to set your intention. Contemplate what do you want to plan for this coming year, what do you want to create for your life? Allow yourself the time and space to delve more deeply into your dreams and desires, and write them down, make it clear, and align with this seasonal energy to support you in manifesting your intentions for this year. If you don’t make it concrete, it easy to forget ourselves as the year goes by, to allow momentary priorities to take precedence over our deepest passions, dreams and creations.
Don’t judge your dreams, it doesn’t matter what they are, how big or small, only that they are important to you, something you would like to manifest this coming year. Perhaps a new beginning, a different way of being, a new livelihood, or home, manifesting more abundance, finding your Great Work in the world. Perhaps deeper, new ways of seeing yourself and your beliefs about how you live in the world, seeing the way the critical mind gets in the way of almost everything, developing more compassion, for yourself or others, opening to more love of life, getting healing for yourself, discovering what you are passionate about, practicing more creation, the possibilities are only limited by the judgements that limit our imagination.
Whatever your dreams, hopes, passions, desires and intentions your set down for this coming year, I wish you the highest Blessings of the Universe that everything that is for your highest good manifests to the maximum potential for your Life.
Blessed Candlemas to All
Be Love. Be Smooth.
