Winter Solstice 2012

The Winter Solstice 2012 is upon us! Yes, the end of the Mayan Calendar, supposed “Doomsday.” The essence of this moment marks a turning point in the revolution of the Solar System’s position in our Galaxy.  We have arrived at the Alpha/Omega point in the orbit.  This cycle has taken twenty-six thousand years to complete itself. This is a fact rooted in science–not some tree hugger mumbo jumbo bullshit.

The Winter Solstice is the shortest day with the least amount of light available in the Northern Hemisphere.  Hence, we should turn inward to find the light within ourselves to create peace.  Being that this is a very challenging time for Peace in the world, given the recent atrocities and current events, the Winter Solstice is about the dark outside of us and the light we can create from within. The actual moment of power falls upon us at 3:11am PST Friday morning when the Sun actually crosses over the planets. I don’t know that I’ll be able to wake up at 3AM and light a candle, but my plan is to take time out of my day Friday to light a fiyah, meditate and reflect. Ideally, it’s best to make sure the first light you see when you awake, whether it be at 3am or 12noon, is light that you created with fiyah vs. something electrical.

It is important to honor this day as it’s also the end of the Mayan Calendar which is supposed to mark a shift in consciousness from male energy to female energy! Our time is now. It’s a time for all of our peoples to rise up.  Take a moment Friday to join the millions of other people all over the world who are collectively focused on creating love and peace. Push up ya lighta! It’s time.
