The Winter Solstice time marks the beginning of a new phase in our inner journey. Symbolized by the shortest days of the year in which the sun is reborn to bring new light to the collective we celebrate the renewal of sunlight throughout all cultures and religions. Energetically seen, it honors the Feminine Spirit and its vehicles (our planet, ourselves and all living things) giving birth to the Sun-Child – New Creation, regardless of our believes. (Here a very interesting and comprehensive article about the origins of our Solar Calendar, New Years & Winter Holidays by Milt Timmons).
For us as individuals the Winter Holidays find their profound spiritual meaning not through the superimposed consumerism at the end of the year, but through inner reflection and correction of the old and inviting the new to manifest itself – through receiving the gift of the Rebirth of our inner light.
