It’s Christmas eve, I feel like it’s not really the time to be writing a blog, yet one of the things I love doing is writing, so I decided to take a little time out from peeling vege’s and preparing the family feast to sit and write some words.
What would flow from me at this moment? Maybe a little apprehension as Ben and I bring our two families together for the day? No, not really, we seem to have jelled beautifully together, including our families as we journeyed on this relationship thing.
I’m a lover of the Solstice really, making that my New Year and dark mid-winter ceremony, setting my intentions, lighting my candles and praying deeply for the changes I feel I need to make in the coming months.
Christmas is for the family, a way to bring us together, to eat and to give to each other in a celebration of our friendship, comradeship and the ties that our blood gives us. I love my family, our histories and where we have come to in just being ourselves. The connections that have changed over the years, yes, they have changed hugely, through growing up together, parting the waves and coming back closer than ever, bringing our extended families and friends to share in a closeness that only family can really have. Knowing who we were as children, sharing those stories and seeing each other grow with them is fascinating!
I am blessed with family, with friends and with many dancing communities. I wish all of those wonderful people so much love this Christmas and New Year and for many many years to come.
I pray that 2012 will be a big turning point for us and our societies and that we shall see many an awakening moment, shifts in consciousness and begin to give more focus and attention to the things that ‘really matter’ in our world.
Blessings to all, with love, peacefulness and joy, may your dreams unfold in the most beautiful ways. May the dances of 2012 be rich, fruitful and deeply satisfying, after all, it costs nothing to dance, it is always with you and is as rewarding and pleasurable as any gift you could give yourself. Fill your heart with music, breath and wonderment at your own exquisite beauty, lift your arms and fly…….with your feet on the ground!
Happy Mid-Winter, blissful dreaming, deep peace and love,
