Happy Winter Solstice!
Welcome Archangel Gabriel. Late tonight, he takes the helm from Archangel Michael. The autumn season has been a time of purification and letting go. Now under Angel Gabriel's charge, (whose name means God is My Strength), it is a sacred time to birth more Light into our lives.
The Winter Solstice begins as the sun turns northward. In the northern hemisphere, it marks the shortest day of the year--with the sun shining longer each day thereafter until the Summer Solstice on June 21st (the longest day of the year). This sojourn is symbolic of our own inward opportunity to kindle our inner Light and watch it shine more brightly each day. It is a wonderful time to be still and go within by meditating, practicing the Presence, quietude in nature, or just being still in gratitude for the gift of spirit.
All life feels the touch of the Divine Love energies playing both within and upon the Earth. The veil between the physical and spiritual realm is thin, making communion with the celestial beings more accessible. As Archangel Gabriel delivered the good news to Mary about her worthiness to be chosen to birth the beloved Jesus, this Angel of Hope and Love, comes into our presence offering the same invitation on a spiritual level. We can give birth to the Christ babe within the manger of our mind, if we create the space.
Look for the star of your Bethlehem to guide you in Christ and celebrate your new birth.
Love and joyful blessings,
