Preparing your home for Winter Solstice is a tradition that is thousands of years old. Many think of Winter negatively as short, cold days, but winter is a vital time of the year for the earth to rest, hibernate, renew and prepare to bloom all over again in Spring. Observed and cherished in this way, we, as Mother Earth's Children can take a lesson from her excellent example. Use Winter Solstice this year to review the past year, decide what you need to let go of and what new, improved habits to embrace in the Spring. It is a season to examine and grow personally as well as part of the community of Mother Earth. Enjoy earlier nights in bed, read an actual paper bound book again, and celebrate the gift of sight and light with candle illumination. Purifying your home with a good deep clean and filling the air with nature's gift of cleansing anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, White Sage Leaves, Palo Santo Wood, Sandalwood, or Frankincense & Myrrh Incense brings summer into your winter home and freshens and cleans the often stagnant circulation of fresh air we are able to enjoy indoors in Spring, Summer, and Autumn. Clearing space also clears space in your mind, heart, and soul and replaces it with an embraced vibrancy of renewal. Be mindful and celebrate Winter Solstice by creating your own rituals of reflection, change, and growth.
