Advent Calendar – 9th December – The Clearing

Christmas is hard for lots of people when perhaps it could be about being light?

In the Christmas story three kings follow a star looking for a new born child. In my mind the three kings represent aspects of our psyche – love, creativity and hope are my choices. The star is light, inspiration, guidance and the child symbolises transformation and rebirth…

A horse rests by a stream. The flowing water clears away fear, stagnation, negativity… The horse is bathed in light. Wise father time is represented by the horse trees yet there is a chaos and confusion around him too, rooted in the past and habits of old.

The horse simply observes – by slowing down to let go he rejuvenates his inner light for the coming year.

Why cut down trees and cover them in artificial lights to experience the illumination they represent?
