Happy Solstice everyone! its Eileen this time, and i'm finally feeling rejuvinated and in comfort. I just wanted to extend me sincere gratitude for all of your love and support! It has been well recieved and i'm healing quickly and loving life!

I feel like this is a special time for me to share my thoughts on a blog, as it is a time of reflection and intentions for the new year!

This time of  year marks the darkest day of the year as a special time to celebrate new beginnings and Reflect on the past year. It is this special time that symbolises how we are connected by the thread of life, by honouring nature and her natural cycles. We believe that we are all interconnected to these sacred cycles.

As we send our blessing to Gaia, the The Sacred Mother for giving birh and nurtuing life..... This is a time to reflect on this past year with fond memories and love. And to achnowledge our life expereinces, pleasant or unpleasant as symbols of growth and rebirth. Awareness to the ever changing, and cyclical life process. As longer days now begin to emerge, we await the warm rays of light  to kiss our face  with each passing day.

"Our lives are an evolution," she said. "We're all connected to the source of creative love."
beautiful beginnings" (unknown)

Here in Thailand we celebrated the Solstice with a symbolic mushroom harvest! These little ones bring new life and change with each passing moment, and we have come to appreciate their wise symbolism of life. Every harvest sheds old growth & brings forth new life. With every day that passes, we water and nurture our little ones, just as we do to ourselves. A harvest will occur every 7-10 days. This was the first harvest we made since we stumbled upon the mushroom-growing bottles about 10 days ago at the Chiangmai University agricultural faculty market. Agriculture was being promoted at this market, along with other home grown herbs, flowers, and plants of all kinds. The bottles were inexpensive at first, and  we now exchange love, water, and energy for our weekly harvest.


Symbolism of the Winter Solstice
"The Winter Solstice marks a crucial part of the natural cycle. In a real sense, the sun begins anew its journey toward longer days, times of new growth and renewal of the world once again. In a spiritual sense, it is a reminder that in order for a new path to begin, the old one must end and that spring will come again.The winter solstice is the longest night of the year and is said to be when the Goddess gives birth to the God. From here on in the year, the days will become longer as the god grows into full strength. and brings new life in the spring

So, lets Bless this point in time.... may it be a positive impact on each of us...

Namaste,

Eileen.
