Dawn rises, from the darkness a red glow appears on the horizon. Whatever birds are here awaken, and begin to sing their song, calling the day into being.
Like the day gently beginning so it is the time for the light of the new season to arrive. One more dark moon in the dark half of the year and then we are seeing off that time of contemplation, of letting go, and welcome the time of dreaming in a new cycle of the sun.
Mam Ysbrydoliaeth – Mother of Awen – the Inspiratrix, comes to visit our dreams. She taps us with Her staff of magic, bringing us new beginnings, new insights springing from recent integration, fresh ideas, projects, work that we need to do.
As the snow glistens, the sun throws diamond sparkles across the land, the air is clear and crisp. As we breath it in deeply, its cold kiss clears our heads and minds, bringing us into a space of creating.
There is a promise in the air. She vows that if we follow Her divine guidance, She will lead us to our path of bliss, leaving behind any unhappiness from the last cycle, we step forward into the future, where everything is possible.
As the land is covered with fresh snow, we step forward, first traces in the vast pristine field of potentiality. We are the architects of our destiny, the pioneers, the adventurers, exploring the most incredible land of them all… the landscape of our Self. We explore who we can be, where our untapped potential lies, all that we never thought we could do. We jump into the possibilities of our own creations, sowing the seeds that will bring us into our fullness of being.
Walk the land, feel the cleansing power of land to heart connection, of new life quietly but irrepressibly shooting forth.
Listen for Her voice, inspiring you to do great things if you dare. Forget about fear, allow yourself to dive into that invigorating river of Awen that runs through you, discover hidden talents, rediscover what brings you joy.
The time to sit with friends and family, explore, allow dreaming in, rediscover your inner child that had the Goddess given ability to believe that it could conquer the world. They are still the deepest part of you.
Oh, and if it snows where you are…. Create or build Snow Goddesses! Give the neighbours something to puzzle about, dance and giggle and allow that little one to be glad that winter is here.
