Healing Your Relationship with Winter…and All That It Implies

I used to be afraid of winter. I dreaded the going within, the darkness I was sure to be confronted with there.

Then, one winter I made a project out of working through my attitude about winter.

That winter I read through “The Dark Side of the Light Chasers,” by Debbie Ford.

I learned that the Universe is all one thing, with light and dark, duality, contrast

I learned that everything is a mirror and that whatever triggers me is evidence of some aspect of me that I’m not at peace with.

This is a tool and truth that has stayed with me over the decades.

That winter, I healed my relationship with winter. I lost my fear and rejection of this natural part of the cycle of time, life and the year.

Now, I look forward to winter.

Now, I understand that the quiet, internal time of darkness, is necessary and natural and not to be feared nor rejected. On the contrary, I have learned, and continue to learn, that the yin, the feminine, and that which I fear and want to push away, out of existence – is in fact a treasure, and a magic doorway to all the riches I seek.

How Do You Feel About Winter?

How do you feel about winter? Is it your friend, or do you prefer to keep your distance, keep busy, stay in the masculine energy yang flow as much as possible?

Is the fear of Winter, of stillness in fact a fear of a representation of death?

Do you ignore the call from the cool dark earth to be quiet and listen, ear toward the ground?

Our culture and many of our upbringings emphasized productivity as part of the definition of a worthwhile life.

Have you ever doubted or questioned this? Would you dare to challenge the status quo? Would you feel like an ungrateful traitor to consider quiet time just for you? Purposefully non-productive?
