Winter Solstice Letter – what’s that?
Winter Solstice letter writing can be spiritually fulfilling. In it you address your noble intentions and aspirations to the highest imaginable, non-local presences of Light. With a higher intelligence that cares for you, this planet and her people. If you have never done so here’s a simple plan to write your winter solstice letter.
Solstice Letter: why now?
Great spiritual energy releases from the highest Light at winter solstice, just as there is at summer solstice. Many spiritual alchemists draw a list of prayers and good wishes, and also their actions in support of these things.
The spiritual alchemist, in this case, writes to formally request the highest support of the solstice light. the ancients considered the short period before during and after solstice the best time to initiate planning and undertaking important projects.
What to ask in the Winter Solstice Letter?
Some of the items on your list might be personal. While others can be impersonal, yet not so general. They can be directed for the highest good of the planet, which you might specify. Challenging situations you might desire to pray for.
However, just asking for world peace is too general. Asking for the correct solution to meet challenges is better. You could be specific, such as if you requested the end of terrorist activity. However, while it’s more specific it’s certainly not the only way. You can think of others.
Another example might be, asking for abundance, success, good health, harmonious relationships. Again, these are good yet stated in a vague way. More specific would be stating how you propose to use that abundance.
For instance, you could state how having the specific kind of abundance you request can help you meet your own needs and provide flexibility for you to do whatever specific alchemy you propose that is of service to others.
Winter Solstice Letter Writing is a form of alchemy when the spiritual alchemist performs her or his sacred labor so it can be integrated into the fabric of cosmos. It may be a thread, yet when that thread is golden, combined with all the other golden threads in a certain way, it can make the fabric more beautiful, practical and durable.
Isn’t asking for all this a bit grandiose?
The idea behind writing the winter Solstice Letter is not that we think we know what’s best. We realize that, by ourselves, we’re not omniscient and in our limited human mind, we can’t know what’s best. The real power is in the experience of writing the solstice letter, and how that prepares us to work out a plan to actually carry out its intentions.
You can make writing your Winter Solstice Letter a spiritually fulfilling experience. Maybe while seated at a table cleared of all else. Or, if you wish, having a simple focus before you. Like a candle, a portrait of a high presence of light, a flower or some other symbolic focus. Perhaps you can play soft music, or fill the air with aromatherapy. Or simply breathe and focus on your breath as you would before you begin a meditation.
