By World-Renowned Alchemist Adora Winquist
As we approach this year’s Winter Solstice, we are invited to bring our focus inward to search our soul, spirit, body, mind, and emotions. Where are you called to bring greater self-care, love, and compassion into your intentional practice and day-to-day living? This time of deep reflection is rich with opportunities for life-enhancing self-discovery.
In this time of shift of the New Earth, we continue to awaken and expand our conscious connection to ourselves and each other. The quantum field invites us to align with the potential of the infinite creation. Expanding beyond the 3D matrix of limitation creates a quantum field and draws us into the zero point dimension of limitless potential. We enhance this energy by honoring ourselves and deepening our practice of self-care.
How can you embody greater harmony, flow, and balance in your body, thoughts, feelings, and spiritual connections? Full extrapolation and assimilation of wisdom from life lessons and experiences at the soul level requires us to reflect, embrace and honor all of the twists and turns along our journey.
I honor and bless all the places that exist within me calling for warmth, care, and the light of my love.
Do you need more rest this time of year or this season of your life? Are you called to sacred intentional practices like prayer and meditation? Do you desire more creative expression, authentic communication, or deeper intimacy? Are you feeling inspired to balance your brain and body chemistry through new habits of exercise, diet, and nutritional support?
This season of inward reflection offers a wonderful opportunity to be in the listening of your being holistic, to create and shift self-care, and to plant the seeds for YOUR next season of soul growth and embodied expansion.
Adora Winquist offers this DIY ceremony to you as a means for greater self-discovery. Ceremony and ritual are rooted in ancient traditions as a practice of alchemy in the processes of transmutation, transfiguration, and transformation. Whether in solitude or in a group, we shine the light on those aspects of ourselves longing to evolve, and we SHIFT. This creates the clarity and space within to embody more of our life force and “quintessence.”
Winter Solstice Self Blessing Ceremony
You will need:
One white tea light candle
Frankincense Essential Oil or DIY Synergy
Red Calcite (If you don’t have access, you can invite in the cosmic consciousness of this crystal)
Winter Solstice Self Care Synergy
1 drop Frankincense (Boswellia carterii) essential oil
3 drops Vetiver (Vetiveria zizanoides) essential oil
2 drops Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) essential oil
3 drops Lavender (Lavandula stoechas) essential oil
Add to 1 TSP carrier oil (jojoba, olive or coconut)
Place a few drops of your sacred oil on the palms of your hand and inhale deeply for 30 seconds while you invite in the clarity of your intention for loving self-care. Light your candle as a reflection of illuminating the spark of Divinity within you and hold your crystal or place it near or on your body.
Hold your crystal in your left hand, and bless all the new levels of understanding and awareness that have arisen within you this past year. On your next breath in, connect into your body, inviting your warmth and your love to all the areas of tension or discomfort. Envision any emotional patterns or belief systems that no longer serve you to be released and dissolved into the light around you. Invite the wisdom within you to illuminate ways that you can be more loving and caring of yourself.
Invite in a greater experience and expression of compassion for yourself and your journey to emanate through your being.
When you are ready, anoint yourself with a few drops of your oil on the forehead and heart with a renewed commitment and deepening of self-care. Close with a breath of gratitude for your journey that has led you here and now.
