On September 22, 2016, the Autumnal Equinox occurred and with it the Year of Dreams Fulfilled began.

Each Autumnal Equinox marks the beginning of a new Nature Year and a new cycle of evolutionary unfoldment for each of us. With each season change, the energies activated at the Autumnal Equinox ground more fully into our consciousness.

At Winter Solstice, we move into the second trimester of our pregnancy with our emerging Selves. At Summer Solstice, our new Selves will be fully formed and the evidence of the shifts and changes we experienced during the course of the Nature Year will be manifest in our lives.



A portal to the Soul opens every Winter Solstice—just as it does every day for 45 minutes before sunrise and sunset. The Winter Solstice Portal is open for 12 hours— six hours prior to and six hours after the exact moment of Winter’s arrival. This extended period of heightened Soul Contact is the gift of Winter Solstice. Sometime during the Winter Solstice Portal, take time to commune with your Soul. Open yourself. Become the receptacle of Soulful imaginings.



At the precise moment of Winter Solstice or as soon as possible thereafter, in the presence of your own company or with like-minded others, light candles and say:

I Fully Align My Consciousness
With the Energy, Impulses, Patterns and Purpose
Of the Winter Solstice
And Consciously Choose To Do
All that is Required at All Levels
To Support Perfected Manifestation of this Cycle


Winter Solstice offers us a respite from the outer world. It draws us into our Selves where we are nourished and sustained spiritually. The Soul (metaphorically) provides the light and warmth to sustain us through the cold and dark of winter. The lantern of the Soul burns bright now and always. Let us turn up the Inner Flame by withdrawing our senses, even temporarily, from our external experience.
