Calling in The Tribe....

Calling in the Tribe!
Who: YOU, and if you wish, your circle, tribe, family, or village.
What: A fire ceremony, to release the old year and shift up into the new.
Where: In your backyard firepit, on a bonfire beach, around your fireplace, (even in your kitchen sink if you can make it scout-safe with a fireproof container).
When: Winter Solstice, December 22nd, 2011.
Why: We release what no longer serves us on the Winter Solstice, because it is the darkest day of the year. We let go so that we can step freely into what is waiting for us, as the light begins to grow brighter with each day. We're doing it as an extended community to raise the energy level of letting go, together!  (written by Pixie Campbell)

This is a chance to let go of those things that do not serve us a tangible way. Letting go of the shadow  in ourselves allow more room for the Light.
Things like.....

Fear into Courage
Not Enoughness into Plenty                   
Old patterns of behavior into fresh responses and vulnerability           
Anger into Cleansing Breath
Sorrow into Hope
Grief into Rebirth
Loneliness into Circle and Support
Disempowerment into Confident Action
Creative Dormancy into Full Expression
Superficiality into True Being
Masks into Love of What Really Is
Shortsightedness into Eagle's Vision
Limitations into Possibility
Projections into Conscious Ownership
Stuckness into Movement
Depression into Light
Bondage into Freedom
Control into a Loose, Flexible Grasp
Obsession into Letting It Be
Anxiety into Flow
Fragmentations into Wholeness
Duality into Oneness
Shame into Acceptance of the Processes of Life
Mistrust into Trust
Judgment into Allowing...c/o Pixie Campbell

This ceremony will be attended by women across the globe and  hosted by the Sweet Pixie Campbell.

  1. Hi lovely Cat, we'll do this but on New Years Eve. We'll be away at our little beach house. I would like to thank God for 2011 and celebrate the start of 2012. How about I take some pics for you and do a post?

  2. Wish I could be there!
    Enjoy the mystical night of wonder. What a brilliant idea:)

  3. I did this ritual on my own yesterday and tomorrow will do it with a friend. I would love to be in your area! Your banner! Wow!
