The holidays are upon us, winter has arrived, and yesterday we celebrated the winter solstice which represents the darkest day of the year.
Today we begin the process of slowly moving back toward the light.
During these dark days, it’s important to pay attention to both the light and the shadows in our lives.
What are you wanting to bring to light in your life? What are you ready to let go of?
Here’s a simple journaling activity you can do to get clear on your intentions…
Fold a piece of paper in half. On one side, write “my shadows” and on the other side write “my light”.
Under your shadows, list out any challenges, uneasy feelings, or struggles that you are facing.
Under your light, list out your gifts, the blessings in your life, and the things that you are naturally good at.
Take a close look at your lists and notice where your focus goes. Which of these aspects would you like to work on in this next season of life? Which shadows are you ready to let go of? And what parts of your light are you ready to let shine even brighter?
Circle these items on your lists and set your intention to let it be so.
What are you bringing to light this season? Please share in the comments below!
