Winter is a time when all of nature goes inward. It really isn’t the time to be running around trying to find the perfect present. Instead, it is the time to remember how to be still, listen deeply, and be present. It is a time for self-reflection, deep healing, changing of perceptions and gaining clarity about who we are and what wants to be born through us in the spring.
When I lived in snow country, I was often forced to surrender to winter. In the fall, when I could feel winter coming, I would begin to organize my life in a manner that enabled me to stop, go inside, and listen deeply.
I found connecting deeply with myself in this manner reminded me of my innermost needs and often provided me with a solution. This awareness was also a steady reminder to let go of my agenda, listen deeply, and make appropriate choices for me. When I didn’t, my system would get out of balance, and I would lose my clarity and my health and vitality would diminish.
With this in mind, I invite you and the children in your life, to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE because they are a wonderful way to cultivate inner awareness, feel your wholeness, and deliver yourself back to yourself.
