As we approach the winter solstice I grow increasing aware of it being a time of going into the “cave”. It is time for this big bear to sink into the work of “reflecting”. Some traditions refer to this time as the “dreamtime” or the "Kiva moons”. Today I am tripping a bit on reflecting. I think in the darkness of these shorter days the veil between the vastness of the sub conscious and the conscious is thinner. We can dream our way through that veil and we can discover a lot by “reflecting” that subconscious as it shines more brightly through the thinner veil. I wonder if the subconscious is nigh onto impossible to see or comprehend when we attempt to look at it directly, when we try to force our way through the veil and point our being directly towards the subconscious if we don’t get blinded by ego, reactions, patterned behavior, confusion and overwhelm. Instead we notice it in our peripheral vision, we notice its reflection and are able to then be a bit more curious and adventurous as we explore this vast mystery. This is the time of year to look for that reflection and that glimmer in your periphery and be curious with what you do with it as you notice it, interpret it and begin to make sense of it. As it bubbles out of the reflection and into “reality”.
