Spirits Joined Us on Winter Solstice
To start this blog I wanted to share a special moment with you. Back in December of 2003, I had been creating a sacred circle on our lake, with some ice candle lanterns. Each day I had been filling some maple syrup buckets with water and setting them out for the night to freeze. Each bucket has created a beautiful lantern.
This was something I was instructed to do in a journey to honour the ancestors and spirits of the land. To celebrate the winter solstice my partner Todd, and I lit the circle of candles as we chanted, and transmuted into our divine light (transmutation). After our ceremony the circle of ice lanterns was so beautiful we wanted to take a picture. Todd took the pictures while I lit the candles that had blown out. To our surprise when we looked at the pictures shortly afterwards, the spirits had truly joined us.
In the pictures you can see circles of light that are moving, and getting bigger, almost as big as me! In some of the pictures there are red and green lights as well . The night was still, and no stars in the sky, so it was very black. Todd said that when he took the photo’s for a second it was as though he was looking at a sky full of stars. If you can zoom in on the circles of light, you can see that they have moved (look to the right of where I am lighting candles).
Since that time I have discovered that other people doing similar shamanic work have the same orbs of light showing up on their pictures. I am making a webpage with some of these pictures on the shamanic website. I invite you to share your images with me if you have some. May the emerging spring awaken the seeds within that wish to be planted. Martha
