The "Queen of Winter"
Hello, beloved community-
During this time of year, for those of us who live in the Northern hemisphere, Mother Nature calls upon us to not only curl up with a good book and a mug of hot cocoa by the fire inside our own homes, but also to delve deep inside of ourselves.
Winter is the time to do our “inner work”.
Some examples include:
Healing and integrating our shadows
Connecting with our ancestors/ancestry
Deeply resting and restoring for Spring (Spring energy starts it’s initial bubbling at Imbolc on February 2nd - more on this later)
Embodying the divine feminine archetypes of the “Wise Woman” and/or the “Queen of Winter”
Dreaming about and visioning what we desire to begin to create in the spring and
Sourcing our intuition
As Francesca and I have been listening to our own intuition, we have both decided to postpone our retreat, “Seasons, Cycles, & Rhythms: Embodying the Authentic Expression of Nature within Women”, that was scheduled for this weekend,
We are SO excited about the work we’ve been doing together to co-create this amazing experience for you all.
However, the collective consciousness is very clearly communicating to both of us that we need more time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding! We are getting together in the middle of this week to organize ourselves and meditate on what would be the perfect, divine timing for this event. We’ll keep you posted!
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you that this season I am having so much fun embodying the “Queen of Winter”.
A few years ago, I was still fighting Mother Nature’s call to slow down and rest, and it caused a LOT of stress in my life. My nervous system did not like it and I would often get sick at this time of year.
Our capitalist/patriarchal culture teaches us that we must go-go-go, no matter the season, and this is so bad for us!
Women are the living embodiment of Mother Earth/the Divine Feminine, and because of this connection we are inherently seasonal, cyclical, and rhythmic creatures.
Embodying the “Queen of Winter” has me going to bed early, wearing cozy clothes pretty much 24/7, lighting lots of candles, eating kitchari (a yummy Ayurvedic stew made with spices and mung beans), journaling, napping, and visioning what I desire to create in the Spring with ZERO guilt.
Try it! It’s been quite enjoyable and my spirit has already been thanking me for it.
Burying myself under the covers of my bed early in the evening and sitting in my sacred space/spiritual hearth of my home in silent meditation and prayer, I’ve been receiving some major divine downloads about what’s to emerge through me this year.
Continuing to build a community of embodied and evolutionary womxn, off of and away from mainstream social media platforms,
Offering more virtual experiences for womxn who don’t live in the LA area or can’t make it to my LIVE events for different reasons and
Circling up on a regular basis with other powerful womxn who desire to sync themselves with the seasons, cycles, and rhythms of Mother Nature/Earth, using the Jade Egg as one of our primary self-healing tools for transformation.
I can’t wait to share more with you all as these dreams and visions become clearer and clearer. Stay tuned!
This week, I invite you to step into your own “Queen of Winter” with ZERO guilt.
If you were the “Queen of Winter”, how would your life be different? What would you wear? What would you be doing? What would you be eating?
FYI - Don’t be surprised to receive pushback about embodying your “Queen of Winter”. It’s quite rebellious!
If you’re seeking support with stepping into this identity and navigating the pushback from family, friends, work, romantic partners, etc., I’d love to be of service. You can schedule a FREE connection call with me here.
Also, because I’ve got SO MUCH emerging through me in 2019, I will be SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASING the price of my private coaching program on Monday, January 21st.
If working with me inside the container of private coaching is something you’ve been considering for a while, now is the perfect time to reach out and book a connection call with me to see if we are a good fit for a coaching relationship. Schedule your FREE connection call here.
