Winter Solstice: When Darkness Turns Into Light


Many people celebrate Winter Solstice on December 21 which is the shortest day of the year. It’s the day when the sun returns and the darkness turns into light.  How will you feel on this day? What will you do?

As days go from short to just a little bit longer everyday, that is one moment in time to feel and see the light. I don’t know about you but I’m not liking the fact that it gets dark so early in the Winter day.  I love the cool weather but do not like the lack of light.

What to do on this day.

We go from dark to light, sad to happy, short to long. Life is all about balance. Where do you  like your balance? Are you more so to the side of light or to the side of dark?

Dark is not a bad thing, I know you thought that as soon as I typed the word “dark.”

  • We need dark in order to have light.
  • We need bad experiences in order to appreciate the good ones.
  • We need sad moments in order to know what happy is. We need black in order to see white.
  • We need ugly in order to admire pretty.

See how this works? We MUST have balance yet we need both sides to tip in order to find our balance.

With more light in the day we can do more, feel more and get outside and enjoy. I know we won’t see these longer days until the Summer but I find comfort in knowing that as each day passes from here on in we are one minute closer to those nice long days.

New days, new beginnings. Discover something new for yourself. It can be a new book, a new skill, recipe, new friends or just a fresh start in the way that you think.

Winter Solstice doen’t have to be complicated it just has to be noticed.

Celebrate the energy that the day represents. Make a convincing effort to  tap into something that you can’t see but something you can feel.

The solstice is more than a location when the North Pole is tilted 23.5 degrees away from the sun. It’s a day of celebration and tapping into the energy of the day, using it and being energized by it. Once you feel that energy, send it out and help change the vibration of the world!

Life is good. It’s up to us to make it that way.

  1. Hi! I JUST realized that YESTERDAY was the 21st, and My Husband and I went into NYC to see a Broadway show, as he’d never seen Phantom of the Opera. Talk about accepting the dark with the light, as that is what the Phantom with his deformity struggled with (as do we all) every day of his life! Hmmmm….! ; )
