FYI, 2014 Winter Solstice-Northern and Southern Hemisphere

Winter Solstice - Northern and Southern Hemisphere

Solstices are opposite on either side of the equator, so the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere is the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere and vice versa.

Southern Hemisphere winter solstice

(Australia, New Zealand, South America, Southern Africa)
 
The winter solstice for the Northern Hemisphere is fast approaching.  All too often this time of year has us externalizing, shopping, buying and getting deeper and deeper into the material world, when in fact, it is most appropriate to get into the spiritual world, or your spiritual work during these times. It's a shut down time as the light duration of the sun diminishes and we experience shorter day light hours.
 
The animals seem to be more in alignment with this period, particularly those that hibernate during the winter months. Unfortunately, we live in a world that is so industrialized that we cannot "REST" during this time but must continue to go and go and go, through it all. 

If we are really and truly wanting to quiet ourselves we have to make a HUGE effort to shut ourselves down. Particularly if you are Christian or surrounded by
Christians, and then on the other hand, let's keep religion out of it, let's just talk about the mind control and the push to consume, buy, consume, buy..... The pressure is at its peak during this time, and having Christmas & Kwanzaa and other "festivals" thrown into the ring, you will probably look not too far from crazy if you say, you cannot eat Christmas dinner, as you are fasting. It's definitely a battle for your spiritual well being, and to catapult you into a very depressed coming year with a calendar that is all off.

THE WINTER SOLSTICE MARKS THE REAL NEW YEAR FOR THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE!
Historically, it seems to be a plan to homogenize the entire world onto a specific pathway, how more manageable they are if they are all doing the same thing? In fact, the winter does not bring snow everywhere, but it seems, that is what is imaged as the true winter scene.

THE WINTER SOLSTICE TIME IS THE BEST TIME TO MAKE YOUR RESOLUTIONS, VISUALIZATION, LISTS OF WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE HAPPEN IN THE COMING YEAR. 
When we do things in the alignment with natural cycles we tend to be more successful. The resolutions made on New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, are going to be more difficult to keep due to the fact they are being made during a mis-alignment. Not to mention, they are made with the big distractions of a just past Christmas and a coming New Year's Eve Party!!! Resolutions will shortly be barely remembered if at all with all that going on. 
When a farmer is aware of the best times for planting seeds, that is when the seeds are planted. Because of the general wintry climate and the shortness of day light, it portents a time for introspection, quietude, meditation, fasting and contemplation. Take a look at what the past year has brought and make changes in these quiet moments, moments that will hold your resolutions in longevity.  It may also help to get assistance, i.e., through a psychic reading, focused meditation, visualizations, soul searching, etc.; to help determine what resolutions are most apt to move to successful achievement considering the energies of the coming cycle. Everything is energy.
 
Nevertheless, if you persevere through the social opprobrium, you may find that you have moved a little bit further on your spiritual journey. 

I find it interesting that the same folks who speak of Awakening also Capitalize off all the Christmas rivalry that can happen during these times, it seems to be a huge chasm when it comes to Awakening and Commercialism. While I must admit that these folks are about selling, selling and selling whatever they are presenting in the form of the Way to Awakening, they do not appear to have the courage to tell folks to cease and desist being caught up in the Capitalist/Commercial bubble of Christmas. Maybe they are afraid they will lose followers, and if that's the case, are they really being sincere?? 
Knowing that many folks will still be doing what they are most familiar with, I have presented my thoughts. Below you will find some information on the Winter Solstice to help you understand better what it's all about. It is simply an FYI for any who may be interested.

In 2014, in the Northern Hemisphere, winter begins with the December solstice 2014: December 21, at 23:03 UTC. (check in you own area for a more exact estimation of the time)



Ø      The winter solstice is fast approaching.  For those who are interested in learning more about the Winter Solstice and its implications, there are listed several links to give you some information about the ancient celebrations and its correlation to today and the so-called “Christmas Season.”  Please read these links and research your own and by all means feel free to share what you discover.


Ø      Fasting is extremely important around the Winter Solstice.  Be sure to take special time to observe the Solstice, Dec. 21, 2006....  Fasting, praying, meditating...   This is the time of year when you should be making your resolutions.  That is write them down, make plans on how you want to accomplish them.  Pick accomplishable resolutions!!!!  Make intentions and affirmations.  Write them down.  Be COOL.  Try not to get hyped..


Ø      Fast in whatever way works for you, three days before, on the 21st and three days after.  I suggest something simple like no salt, no sugar, no junk food, no fried foods and no meat.  If you can do this for seven days that will be challenging enough.  I do not suggest a juice or water fast, it is too cold, it is winter and we need caloric foods to keep us warm......  Burrrrr!!!


Ø      On Dec. 21, attempt to fast from any negative situations, shopping, and large crowds.  See who can fast from talking...  Try 12 hours.... no talking to nobody.  That means e-mailing and social media as well...  Shut down communications.......  And if it goes sooo bad that no matter how hard you try, somebody, somewhere is trying to make you talk to them all day, Dec. 21, then when you go to bed, make the intention, that you will be quiet, at least in bed, while sleeping.  Try hard.......


Ø      After the fast, if you can keep those things out of your diet, good, if not, gradually introduce the things you took out, except, don't gradually introduce junk food, for crying out loud!!!

Ø      The Winter Solstice is known as the shortest date of the year, and it signifies the return of the sun. It is sometimes viewed as a time for rebirth, as we go from the darkest day of the year, and move into longer days. This can be a time to also look at what you want to create in the coming months, as well as clear out the old and release the past.
 

Ø      Let's dig deep into our souls and may everyone have a successful and blessed Winter Solstice...

Everyone knows that we live in uncertain times. With all the memes on the internet via social media, and email, we are constantly reminded that we should live in the moment, because tomorrow ain't promised.

So How Does A Psychic Reading Help Us 
To Navigate Through The Moment?

Interesting How Much Of This New Age Shindig Seldom Mentions Getting A Psychic Reading, Or Encouraging Folks To Learn About Astrology, Tarot, Dream Interpretation, I Ching, Numerology, And A Host Of Other Ways To Check Out What Is Happening Around Us.

Where's the disconnect? Hmmm…. Wonder if it's a stream of money thing. If they direct folks to use their own Psychic abilities, things that will have them stand on their own, they may lose a lucrative stream of income.

The New Age movement has simply put a new face on the old paradigm. You need somebody to "show" you the way. You need someone to "channel" for you. If they revealed that you could uncover the truth on your own, and even expose their motives in the process, that would Counter Productive for them.
