The Element of Earth
The hidden time, the time of growth unknowest to ourselves; the dark caves, where mysterious unbidden changes are occurring that can be turned positive or negative depending on the attitude that receives them. Ideas are being nurtured much as a mother nurtures her unborn child. Change is brewing building on the base that we have provided in the previous seasons of time. How we nurture the changes yet to come is up to us. How do we want the coming Spring to look, how do we nurture the hidden growth, what do we want to manifest? Does it begin with nurturing ourselves, setting our goals, welcoming the building light and the coming balance of Spring? Earth can be stability, it can be grounding, much as Winter is a waiting time, but not stagnant. Connecting with the season does not mean turning within but nurturing the hidden growth and possibilities. It is a trusting time, a time of looking at the cup as half full, a time embracing enough and some to share. Winter is a time of building on your strengths and knowing that you have gifts to share that will enable prosperity for not only yourself but others as well. Winter is the time of hidden hope.
