25th December 2022
The 12 rough nights between 25th December and 6th of January are
energetically assigned to the twelve months of the new year; therefore, the second night to February. We are approaching spring and the days getting longer. Some traditions are celebrating this in February, e.g. the Christian church with the Candlemas or Imbolic in the Celtic tradition. I am celebrating spring anyway because it is my favourite time of the year.
The rough nights are a time of peace and retrospective, the time to reflect and predict the new year. Those nights hold a certain magic, a special energy that can support you in finding peace and balance and strengthen your resilience.
Over the last 3 days you have prepared yourself for the rough nights and created a solid foundation for your success. Now, you can learn to trust your inner knowledge, your inner guidance, your intuition again. This will support you to make the right decisions, to know and trust your strengths and abilities.
This is what the second rough night is all about; to get in contact with your emotions, needs, desires, wishes and dreams again. You can do so by starting to think less and feel more. Open up, become still, listen into yourself, and listen to your heart. This is the key to your inner guidance – your intuition – and your balance. The rough nights with their rituals can support you to release stress and increase your resilience.
Be patient with yourself, you can do it, trust yourself. Give it a try.
Your rituals for today
Make sure again what feels right for you and leave everything else aside.
#1 Meditation – become still – what does the stillness tell you? We already spoke about it yesterday.
#2 Imagination: visualise your calm and balanced you: What do you look like? How is your posture? How do you move? How do you speak? How do you interact with others? How do people react to you? What do you do? Etc. Make it as vivid as possible. Write it down. Make a vision board. Find a symbol for your balanced selfand place it somewhere you can see it.
#3 Become still and concentrate on your heartbeat, slow down your breathing. When you are calm, ask yourself, “What is going to be my power animal to help me to become my calm and balanced self?” The first animal that comes into your mind is your power animal. Do not doubt it. Research on the internet what this spirit or power animal stands for and see if it seems right.
Until then be well.
