Winter Season – The Dance of Dreams
Very subtle patterns in our lives can emerge during this time period. This is the close of one cycle (year) and the beginning of another. . Funny thing is that when water (the element of winter) passes over metal or rocks long enough, part of the metal (minerals) leach into the water, feeding another cycle. Water carries information. Water is a storage vesicle for other substances. Our dreams are like water, they change quickly, like a dance. Can we learn the steps of manifestation and letting go? What information do we “carry?”
Observe nature around us and see that life has turned inward and is waiting for the first signs of spring’s warmth. Because many of us spend more time indoors, the air we breathe is often stagnant and recycled. And what we store indoors “gasses off” into the air, making for a soup of stuff in the room and in our bodies. Opening our windows and getting outside, even if only for a few minutes can be very helpful. Also, more than ever during this season, protect the righteous inner energy of your body. Keep covered up and avoid strong winds and downpours. Spend time reflecting on life.
Have we fully let go enough to open space for new things in our lives? This is what spiritual edema is like. We cannot dream new dreams until we let go of the old. In addition, if we live from fear, this will be mirrored in fear of the unknown, fear of silence, dark and emptiness. Can we float like a raft upon the water? That is the image of winter in some older Native Cosmologies. Floating energy. The opportunity of this season is to recharge our batteries, so to speak, for the coming cycle of manifestation of dreams. Those dreams begin during winter (or death and afterlife cycles). For example, Annual plants die off before winter, spreading their seed so that another cycle can begin in the spring.
