Solstice Blessing 2015

Imagine if . . .

at this time of year,
for every person who is speeding up,
and behaving erratically . . .

there is someone who is
slowing down,
connecting deeply
to the still centre
and taking special care.

Imagine what the lead up
to summer solstice/winter solstice/Xmas
would then be like.

Just imagine. . .

Could that someone be you?

Blessings on you all, whether you are opening to the fullness of summer solstice light, or to the seeding of a new cycle in the winter solstice dark. Every year at this time I make a solstice mandala. This one is for you.
May there be peace in your homes and love in your heart.


Thank you for your good company through 2015, for your comments, appreciations, & insights.  If you check my Facebook books page on Dec 22, you’ll see my scheduled post, suggesting a simple summer solstice ritual that you might enjoy. I look forward to being with you again in 2016 after drifting into the rhythms of summer in the bush and beside the sea.

    Thank you Juliet for your beautiful blessing and mandala. Its’s been a tough year after losing my daughter to melanoma on New Year’s Eve, but the year has flown by and I am learning to live through my grief and laugh and heal again. You have played a part in my healing because I find inspiration, compassion & love in your regular newsletters

    Thank you for your special solstice blessing and mandala. Always feels wonderful and special to read you.
    I am back from amazing Nepal and fully blessed by the people, the land and the song of the paths I have walked on. A very special time to connect with our human family and get to meet wonderful people on the way.
    May you receive as well all this richness and spread it around you.
    All my best wishes for a blasting christmas under the red pohutukawa trees.
