As 2011 comes to a close, I’m grateful to my clients and my partner for the many opportunities and blessings of 2011. This year has been full and rewarding, but there is still much to do and more to be revealed in the months ahead as we transition from a Metal Rabbit year to a Water Dragon year.
Winter is a time of contraction and shedding of things that are no longer useful. As the weather continues to cool and we sink into the coldest and darkest time of the year, it’s important to remember how we are all connected and dependent on the health of the earth.
While I’ve enjoyed many sunny December days, I was recently reminded that without abundant rain the salmon will not be able to swim up river to spawn, the moss and ferns will wither in the forest, and our drinking water reserves will be severely diminished.
This Winter Solstice, I invite you to join me in envisioning a wet winter to replenish our rivers, bless our mountains with snow, and support all life that is dependent on fresh water.
With deep gratitude… Jaiya Alamia
