My Solstice Wishes for You

HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MAY THE SEASON BRING YOU ALL MANNER OF GOOD CHEER!

I choose Solstice and Christmas as these are the ones I know and celebrate, but my warm wishes extend to all.

My blessing for you this season is this:

May you feel a kindling in your heart, the glow of light and life that comes from a sense of family, friends, and community.

May the sense of well-being promised in those corny Christmas movies be yours.

May your faith in the goodwill of mankind be renewed.

May you find healing and closure where it’s needed most.

May you know love.

May the good things outweigh the bad.

May you have a sense of hope and rightness about the possibilities in our world, and may this fortify you through the darkness.

May you remember that the sun always returns.

May you smell fresh piney branches wherever you go.

May you have more pretty lights and eggnog lattes and less mall parking lots.

May you hear exactly the amount of Christmas music that you want to hear.

May you be nourished, warm, well-fed, and safe.

May you believe that, even just for right now, everything is really okay.

May you remember what childlike wonder and glee feel like.

May the fullness  of your heart spread this warmth and goodwill to all you touch, that they too may be ignited and pass the spark to others, on into infinity.

And may you know that, if you are reading this, I am grateful that you exist. Even if we’ve never met, we find ourselves connected in this small way by sharing these words. And to share this sentiment with you means a lot to me.

May all these blessings be true for you, and all you love, and all they love, until we find ourselves living in a beautiful world.

Happy holidays, my friends!

(And yes you may share this. That’s the point, after all :+) )

  1. Sharon I love this most full of such beautiful wishes. I enjoyed especially:

    “May you have more pretty lights and eggnog lattes and less mall parking lots.

    May you hear exactly the amount of Christmas music that you want to hear.”

    So true! :) I wish all of this right back to you for a beautiful holiday season!

  2. Thank you for these gorgeous blessings Sharon. Yesterday I took the day off for a personal art day and your and Thorn’s Solstice chants (from the Waning Year album) kept coming up on my shuffle as I created away :)

    May your Solstice season be bright!

  3. Love these blessings, Sharon – especially the one about hearing the exact amount of Christmas music.

    I realised that I heard Snoopy’s Christmas (the one that always gets HAMMERED out here in NZ) for the first time this year at our office party yesterday on the 22nd… and it was just perfect to hear it *right then* and not before.

    May your solstice be everything you could want it to be and more.

    Blessings – TANJA
