Day 11 -12 days til Solstice – Soulstice Celebration. Rest in the Stillness

On December 21 the sun stops moving southward, pauses, and then starts moving northward. This pause is called the “solstice,” from the Latin words “sol” for “sun” and “sisto” for “stop.”.  However if you feel into the energy you will notice that it appears to pause for a period of days before and after.  If you tune in now you can actually feel as if time is slowing down as well.

Now you may be saying ‘pfft’ dismissing that because in the 3D world we are rushing around getting ready for whatever holiday we celebrate in addition to solstice.  But as you read this take time to step into a higher dimension if you will.  Experience time and space in a new way. Ask to know what pure consciousness is like.

Usually when I shift dimensions it feels very light and I have no perception of myself with a form.  But today it feels as if I’m in slow motion like stepping into a density which is very calm and peaceful. This feeling of density is a bit of an enigma. I usually associate denseness with lower frequencies.  But since there is no duality in higher dimensions, I know this density is high frequency.   It is thick… filled with love and light and the highest conscious energy of everyone who is visioning the world and the universe at its best.

Align with the non movement of the sun and become one with the stillness.

If you step back to the earth from this place you will be able to engage clearly  with life and feel free and happy as each moment unfolds.

The Higher Octave of Mercury Retrograde

I have written in past blogs, that I vacillate between connecting with planetary energy and knowing we create our reality.  Here’s a perspective from astrologer Robert Wilkinson that sums it up nicely. 

“We are the ones who determine our ‘destiny,’ based on our choices, which shape our character. “We have free will and no planet or star ‘makes’ anything happen. They merely indicate the larger patterns we live within, and by understanding those patterns and what they symbolize, we are in a position to be in harmony or disharmony with inner and outer ‘reality.’ I believe if we choose to tune into whats happening in the cosmos, then its imperative we check in to the highest conscious interpretations of the activity.

Today Mercury goes retrograde until  January 8th, 2017.  Perhaps this is contributing to the feeling of slowing and stopping.   I came across a wonderful quote that redefines Mercury Retrogrades.

The slowing and reversing of Mercury’s direction gives us an opportunity to witness magic revealing itself. If the magician slows what s/he is doing way down, we can peek behind the curtain and see how the magic works. The invisible becomes visible, the unknown becomes known. It is a time for fully exploring the magic and mystery of life in a way that is not always available to us.” Robert Wilkinson – A New Look at Mercury Retrograde

So plan when possible, to incorporate the “re”‘s into your life. Take time to slow down- relax, rejuvenate and dream of the possiblities for the new year.  Re-connect with your higher conscious self, and the All That IS.

I read a post  by Shelly Leal in the cosmic consciousness monthly section of that in the new 5th dimensional energy, the planet Mercury has new archetypal energies as the keeper of Christed consciousness to allow recalibration of our highest thought processes.  We can re-lease our connections with those who thrive on drama and  re-turn our focus to living as our Divine Authentic Self.

Continue to reflect on the meaning of Soultice and on your role in the new golden era of consciousness. Await revelations.  As you reflect, notice what other guidance you are receiving that encourages  “re-ness”.  Assess whether you are in the flow.  If things are not unfolding easily and effortlessly with joy and peace then re-direct your thoughts and your attention to what feels best. Re-mind yourself of what really matters

Review your projects and what direction your life is taking. Review and celebrate your successes this year and re-commit to your visions for new beginnings in the year to come.  Re-evaluate  what you wish to complete in this 9 universal year of completion.  Re-assess what you consider to be your Responsibilities.   Are they really yours to do?

Reflect on the good things that happened in the world this year, amplify the feelings of joy that went with them, recycle them -send out that high vibing energy to be magnified and reignite happiness, peace and whatever higher frequencies you want to see reflected in the world

Do You Feel Called to Set Intentions for the Next Quarter?

As you contemplate all this, you may wish to set some intentions for the period from Winter Solstice to Spring Equinox.  Think of how nature expresses itself in the winter period.  Fields lie fallow resting until spring seeding, new growth lies waiting for the spring sun and rain to sprout, the nights are still longer than the days.  One might say nature has adopted a zen attitude, relaxed, accepting and going with the flow, yet with the potential of so many limitless possibilities awaiting creation.  


When you set intentions, it is very important to include how you wish to feel, in addition to what action you want to take.  Your intention does not have to be complex and it should cause a feeling of eager excitement and anticipation.

When you are aware, you think about choosing actions that are for the greatest and highest good of all involved. When you consciously set that intention your actions will be guided when you check in.

Inherent in setting  your intention  is that not only will you benefit, but you will share the energy and gifts  from a sacred space and bring the Divine universal energy to all 7 billion humans and other life on the planet and in the universe.

Guidelines for Setting Effective Intentions.


I generally suggest you include a statement indicating you are grateful for what you already have.  This acknowledges your conscious awareness that the universe always provides and generates the energy of giving and receiving.

Our outside reality depends on our inner beliefs and thoughts and feelings. The key here is not about controlling them but about guiding them.  Controlled energy is tight and blocked, whereas guiding is about accepting your thoughts, beliefs and feelings, allowing them to flow and choosing to refocus on a higher option.

Your attention must be on what you want to be, do or have – not on the lack of it.   Align your inner and outer intention to create a clear match of higher vibrational energy to send out to the universe.  Setting intentions is one of most important ways of ensuring you attract what you desire; it is a critical tool to have as you go along your life path. Another helpful tip is to know that the more relaxed you become, the more powerful your energy.  If you are clear on what you want and willing to show up and do what it takes, in an easy and effortless way, you can trust that it will materialize.

Practice non-attachment. When you want to create something, state what you desire  in your intention, but without any attachment to the specifics of how it will happen or what it will look like.  Just playfully put it out there. I always ask for ‘This or something better’ then release it like a balloon of fun to the universe to do its thing. It will arrive in a way you often don’t expect.  It has to!   It’s The Law !

Sample Intentions
Your intention could be “I feel trust and calmness (feeling ) as I consciously listen for inner guidance and act on it”.(action)

You could also set a more tangible intention such as “In the next 90 days I feel inspired, confident and competent as I follow the steps I have written in my 90 day plan to get a job”
