Hearths burn bright with warmth and laughter during this magical time of year. Drinking hot cocoa while walking in the cold night, we are enchanted like children taking in the glittering lights adorning houses. Celebrating the Yule tide, also known as Solstice is an ancient tradition we love to include in our holiday festivities. We bake a yule log while listening to celtic holiday music as we decorate sugar cookies and other goodies. This year, I will be hand making our stocking as we seemed to have lost them in our move across the country. One of the stocking was my childhood stocking my aunt sewed when I was small. Altough at first I was sad to have lost this hand- made family item, as well as the stocking I had made Grant and Pepper. I now see it as a blessing. It's time for me to make all new stockings for our family on our new journey. ;) What traditions do you enjoy during the holiday season? What new ones will you begin this year?

The New Moon rises December 11. A time for planting goals, projects, and beginning relationships, the new moon can be ushered in with a fun moon ceremony. Perhaps you want to take a moon bath, or stand under the night sky. You might even prepare moon infused water to drink the next evening. You might choose to simply write your goals down for this moon cycle, goals you will take steps for fruition by the full moon on December 25. That's right. The Full Moon is December 25 this year!
Winter Solstice falls on Decemeber 21 this year. This night, we celebrate by lighting candles and eating the delicious yule log. This powerful day heralds in the return of the light. It brings illumination to all areas of your life on subtle and not so subtle levels. Pay special attention to your dreams this night. You will indeed recieve some profound messages. You can invite the light in your life by simply lighting a candle with intention.
Enjoy this magical holiday season!

Seeing All Things as Sacred Divine
It can be difficult to see everyone and everything as Divine when there are those creating tragedy in our world. However, the more we choose to see, and act in love, the more we shift the consciouness of ourselves and those all around us. Here are a few steps how you can help shift conciousness to Love:
1. Prayer for ALL beings on this earth.
2. Seeing ALL creatures and beings as Divine creation.
3. Treating all (animlas included) with kindness, love, and peace.
4. Help thise in need-not just ones you want to help. Animals included.
5. DO NOT purchase guns! Nor condone them.
5. Start a petition to make guns illegal.
7. Rise above fear and fear mongering. Smile at those how grumble, complain, or behave irrationally toward you or anyone.
8. Do not put up with agressive behavior towards yourself or another. Do this with kindness and love-not anger or rebellion.
9. Love yourself.
10. Love your neighbor.
11. Love ALL LIFE. Take time each day to contemplate what love means and how you can live in and be love.
Chocolate L'ancienne is my favorite! A mystical adventurous read is fantastic. Historical fiction makes my research engine hum. Movement is my expression. My husband is my love. Pepper is my tiny bunny.
