Use this Winter Solstice Worksheet for End of the Year Reflection
with Sierra Vandervort
The winter solstice is our time to look back on our year & ask ourselves what we can take away from it. Use the winter solstice worksheet below to help you dive deep into the energies of this season!
Our bodies are intuitively connected to the energies of nature. It’s probably not a stretch to guess that in this dead of winter, you’re feeling a bit tired, more introverted, and a bit pensive & thoughtful. That’s the energy of the season and the winter solstice in your body.
During this time of extreme darkness & cold, we feel a natural instinct to hide inside, fill our bellies with warmth, and slow things down a bit. While the holidays can be a magical time of celebration with loved ones, it often sends the opposite signals to our bodies. We feel rushed and hectic, dashing through airports and dealing with an endless barrage of holiday parties.
If you’re feeling burnt out and fatigued during this time of year, it may be time for an energetic shift in your body.
The winter solstice is coming tomorrow, Dec. 21st. As the darkest day of the year, this is our deep dive into our more subtle ways of being. We’re called to spend more time indoors, by ourselves, letting the dust of the year settle in our minds and bodies. After the solstice, we welcome back the slow but steady return of the sun. We honor the lowest turn in our wheel of the year, while also celebrating our slow ascent back to summer and warmth.
Some wonderful practices for the winter solstice could be meditation, restorative yoga, journaling, or fire rituals. If you’d like some guidance in exploring this deep and intuitive time, I’m offering you a free, downloadable worksheet to go along with our winter solstice.
The worksheet contains 3 pages of journal prompts, information around the winter solstice, and more.
Take your time. Get yourself in a space where you can have a bit of quiet reflection. Maybe light some incense, meditate for a few moments on your past year. See what feelings and emotions come up for you.
You can complete the worksheet in whatever order feels intuitive to you. If you’d like you can end by reciting the affirmation on the last page.
I hope you have a blessed holiday season – and can find a few moments to reflect and find your true magic.
