The dark half of the year is a time of rest, reflection, and recuperation. As humans, we are often too busy to stop and see the cycles of life flowing around us. The darkness comes, the animals hibernate, the frosts cover the ground, yet we continue trudging along. We continue pushing through the darkness as if nothing has changed. But everything has!
The dark half of the year can help us calm down, rest, reflect, and recover from the business of Spring and Summer, we just have to let it. Today, let’s take a moment to become hibernating humans, even just for a moment. Let’s give ourselves a period of rest in our busy schedules so that we can continue moving in the darkness toward the light half of the year.
I feel like that’s probably true for a lot of us the animals get a chance to rest and relax… but what about us? I hope you enjoy the meditation when you get a chance. We all need to embrace the bit of hibernating bear in each of us
I love this! I wear my bear talisman to remind me - to go within. I am teaching my adult nieces and they are amazed at how much they can glean from nature and the seasons passing to mirror into their world for how to live. I subscribed on YouTube - thank you so much!
