Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are entering the season of Winter. The Solstice on December 21, tomorrow, marks the shortest day of the year and welcomes the longest night. It’s at this time of the year that I encourage my listeners to slow down, breathe and take stock of their year.
Winter is the end. And the beginning. To unify with winter, look for ways to emphasize receptivity and introspection:
- Nap in the afternoon and listen for cheerful voices in the kitchen.
- Allow the outer weather to cool the surface of the body, while reflection and introspection warm your spiritual core.
- Create time to rest and practice deep reflection and meditation.
- Strengthen your listening skills.
- Recharge your batteries.
- Enjoy the stillness.
- Eat a few salty foods.
- Listen to harp meditations
I composed “Winter” harp meditation music with Five Elements Traditional Chinese Medicine in mind. I incorporated chi balancing concepts of the chillier months including peaceful stillness and the element of water.
This is a season of deep yin and strengthens the kidney and bladder systems. Ears, bones, and adrenal glands also find rest and healing this time of year, if you stop and allow them to rebalance.
I used Pentatonic and Mixolydian music to represent the stillness, the quiet that comes after a snowfall, and the drops dripping from icicles the next day.
