WINTER SOLSTICE: THE YULE (PRONOUNCED EWE-ELLE)

What is your intention for the new cycle as we move from the dark to the light? Now that we have tumbled through the longest night and shortest day of the year. For the Solstice is a turning point. From now until the Summer Solstice the days grow longer as the dark wanes and the Sun waxes. Our ancestors celebrated the Yule as the birth of the Sun God, born of the Goddess after her return from the Underworld. Fires and candles were lit to welcome the return of the Sun Gods light while the Goddess rests after the delivery and the hardships of her tough winter labour. From her dark womb of the night, the light is born. This is a glorious moment decreed by Nature each and every year, not by men. I like this fact. It’s humbling. For this reason, it’s one of my favourite times of the year. What is your intention for the new cycle? As a child I used to long for the end of ‘mean people’(suffering/hurt/pain/upset) each winter solstice. No one told me that suffering is an innate part of our humanness. Somehow, I thought if I just knew more, did more, learnt more, grew more, was more…balance would come, suffering would be no more. As an adult I now long for grace and ease as I learn to walk with suffering, for I now know I won’t eradicate all suffering/hurt/upset/pain. There’s a part of me that now holds out my hand to reach and meet the suffering, just as it is. Hand to hand - knowing that my bliss and my suffering walk together in this life. That in this suffering there are simply just parts of me hiding that feel unloveable, and when seen and witnessed, can move me more into wholeness. My practice this Yule cycle is to not let pain close me, but to enter the very marrow of the me, open me, grow me. What is your intention this Yule?
