Another way to utilize this Winter Solstice energy in order to pour back into yourself during this season is to start journaling. Journaling is something that we all loved to do with ease when we were younger, but somewhere along the way stopped expressing ourselves. Getting back to this practice is a great way to tap into your emotions while also setting intentions for the things you wish to release and receive.
Here's some journal prompts to get you started:
"What did this year teach me about myself?"
What lessons did I receive from this year?"
What old thoughts and feelings do I need to release before stepping into my new year?"
Affirm & Manifest
To take your journaling practice up another notch, try to create daily affirmations that will keep you mind and heart focused on what you want, instead of what you don't want. Whenever you find yourself thinking or writing negatively, reframe it by writing affirmations that not only positively reinforce it, but also helps you stay in the present.
Here's an example:
"I'm never going to make enough money..I never have enough money to do what I want to do."
Positive reframing affirmation:
"I always have more than enough money and THEN some! I already have the money I want.. it's making its way to me right now!"
From here, you can create your own daily ritual that will keep you on the right track.
To add onto these practices, add some crystals into the mix. Some crystals that are perfect for this season include Bloodstone, Garnet, Hematite, Onyx & Galena.
The energy of the Winter Solstice and Capricorn Season wants you to be prepared at all times. Knowing how to feed your desires by pouring into yourself with these three things will add fuel to the motivation you'll need for the upcoming year!
