The Winter Solstice New Year Begins Today!

December 22, 2011

Winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, begins at Thursday 12:31 AM on the east coast of the United States. It marks the beginning of a new year and a new seasonal cycle according to the Mayan calendar. On the day of the winter solstice, the northern polar region of Earth is in 24-hour darkness, while the southern polar region is in 24-hour daylight.

The concept of winter solstice is not aligned with any particular religious doctrine. It is driven by astrological principles so regardless of your religious persuasion, winter Solstice can demonstrate for you nature’s way of experiencing the death of one year and the beginning of a new one. Click here for a straightforward explanation of winter solstice.

Despite all of the doom and gloom surrounding this monumental 2012 shift and the end of one cycle, we choose to focus on what comes next: rebirth! Because when God closes one door a window is opened!

So as winter solstice leads the way, RESOLVE to let go of anything and everything that is holding you down or back and causing you to live beneath the greatness within you. Let your fears, mis-perceptions, thoughts of limitation and lack to fall away.

RESOLVE to release them just like the trees release their leaves. Even trees know that this time of year is meant for letting go, slowing down, withdrawing, reflecting and resting for a time. And soon, just as all of nature will awaken and enter into a growth cycle, so to will all of humanity be summoned to higher heights of spiritual growth.

RESOLVE to celebrate the New Year today. Because with each day that follows the winter solstice, more and more light emerges on the horizon — both figuratively and literally!

  1. Thanks again for reminding us that time & its definition (e.g. the start of a new year) are so relative. There are things I want to see come to fruition by the “end of the year.” How very apropos they’re starting to manifest Dec. 22! Thanks T. Marie for keeping us on track and giving us such fresh perspective. I’m so excited about this “New Year!”

  2. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!
