On December 21st at 5:23 pm (EST) the earth will be tilted so that the North Pole is at the furthest point away from the Sun. After, the earth will shift and we will begin a new solar cycle, in which we will begin to notice a little more light each day.
In ancient Nordic history the myth of the Norse Goddess Frigga, sat at her spinning wheel weaving the fates of men and women during this time of year. The celebration was called Yule, from the Norse word Jul, meaning wheel. The Christmas wreath is a symbol adapted from Frigga’s “Wheel of Fate”, reminding us of the cycle of the seasons and the continuity of life. It marks our journey from one year to the next. We visit the magic of birth, death and rebirth during this time as we celebrate the return of the sun in Northern America and Europe.
Symbolically, the longest night of the year is a fruitful time for setting intentions that will be birthed with the rising sun and gain momentum with the growing light of spring. As the earth and sun play out their fabled winter tale, ask yourself, “What would I like to bring into my professional life and business in the coming year? What needs to die – what do I need to release that isn’t serving me”? Here are some tips on how to bring in the New Year with renewed energy.
Full moons are a great time to release and clear energy. This month the full moon is the day after the Winter Solstice, so you can use that full moon energy to first release and then set intentions for the new year. An easy way to release is to write down all the things and people in your professional life and business that are not serving you at this time. This may be as simple as saying “no” to a difficult customer or as complex as quitting a soul-sucking job.
Once you have made your list, destroy it – “let it die”. I personally burn my list in my fireplace or wood stove. If you don’t have either, you can use a fireproof metal container and burn it outside, or you can shred or bury it. The point is to clear the stuck energy.
After releasing what no longer serves you, it’s time to set your intentions. Write a list of exactly what you want to bring into your professional life and business. Be as specific as you can. Include details. For instance, if you want new work, list the kind of work, what type of people you want to work with, how much money you want to earn, etc. Place this list where it is visible to you on a daily basis. Look at it several times a day. It can also be helpful to create affirmations for yourself and repeat them whenever negative thinking comes up. For example, ” I am appreciated and well compensated for the work I do.”
See the below excerpt from my book Open For Business to get a full picture of how one of my clients manifested her heart’s desire by setting great intentions. When you get clear about your intentions, the right people, situations and guides show up.
Sending you light and renewed energy for the Winter Solstice.

From Chapter 10 – Chakra Harmony
Nina…was looking for new work that would support her need to be available for her children, earn a wage to buy a new home, and fill her need for purposeful work.
The first thing Nina did was get very clear about her desires using her second and fourth chakra energy. Using her second chakra, she dipped into her feelings and remembered how it felt to do work she liked and felt good about. She then took those feelings and connected them to her heart chakra, whereupon her heart sent her desires out into the quantum field in search of synchronistic events and people.
Nina listed exactly what she wanted in her new work – how much money she wanted to earn, desired schedule, ideal location, work environment, organizational culture, etc. Through this process she engaged her third and fourth chakras’ energy. First, she used her third chakra to get clear about her core values as they related to balancing family and work and what type of organization would support her values. Her core values became the basis for her goals. She then engaged the super power inherent in her fourth chakra to set her intentions to attract what she desired.
Next, she kept her own counsel about what was best for her. She didn’t listen to others or her inner mob. In fact, she only shared her goals with a few people she knew would support her – no naysayers allowed! Nina combined her first chakra energetic need for safe boundaries with the healthy communication inherent in her fifth chakra to achieve this. To seal the deal, I used Kundalini Reiki to further release any energetic barriers to her success.
Nina was very selective about only applying for work that met her criteria. She further engaged her third chakra energy to stay on her path to reach her goals. After about six months, she found the perfect job, and it paid her more than she had even imagined. And while the location wasn’t quite as close as she would have liked, she intuitively knew (sixth chakra) it was the right position. Her guides had obviously come through for her (seventh chakra).
