Happy Winter Solstice
Also known as “Midwinter,” “Yule” and “the Longest Night,” Winter Solstice is an astrological phenomenon marking the longest, darkest night of the year. Scientifically, midwinter occurs when one of the Earth’s poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun. Yule this year falls on December 21st. The Winter Solstice has held great significance for cultures all across the globe since neolithic times. Today, many people mark the Winter Solstice with a celebratory dinner, and by lighting candles or gathering around the hearth. Here at The Brothers Apothecary, we celebrate with a mug of Chai Awakening CBD Tea and a manifestation ritual!
Solstice Manifestation Ritual
The Solstice (and the week leading up to it) is a supercharged time, astrologically speaking. The Solstice is a powerful time to spark intentions, manifest change, and recharge and recalibrate your energy. The basic principle behind manifestation is that if you don’t ask the universe for what you want in life, you’ll never see it happen. So make the most of this astrologically powerful day, and let’s get manifesting!
Gather Your Tools
So, what will you need for your Winter Solstice manifestation? Because you’ll be focusing on visualizing positive things entering your life, a great place to start is with a vision board! If you don’t have a vision board, an inspiration journal or just a sheet of paper with your hearts’ desires written on it will work just fine.*
Brew Some Tea
Of course, your Solstice Chai Awakening Tea Ritual wouldn’t be complete without a nice mug of Chai Awakening CBD tea ($15)! Our easy-drinking Chai is carefully blended with Darjeeling, warm spice, and sweet vanilla. This chai is naturally stimulating and refreshing. People have used Chai for thousands of years for medicinal, religious and cultural purposes, to relax the mind and open the heart to spiritual experiences.*
Meditation is super important because it forces you to r-e-l-a-x and allows your most secret desires to flow from your higher self. Set your intention before you meditate – your intention can be as simple as getting that promotion at work or as big as moving across the country. Once you have your intention in your mind, hold that thought there and allow yourself to explore every facet of this intention. Picture all the good things you want in your life, and imagine them flowing into your life, one by one. If you want a little more help getting in the zone, pick up an Insight CBD Essential Oil Roller ($25). This roller is specially crafted to heighten the third eye’s ability, and scented with the exotic fragrances of White Fir, Ylang-Ylang, Frankincense and Jasmine.*
Sleep On It
Before you start to self-sabotage with doubt or judgments, remember that doubts are part of the manifestation process and refocus your energy on drawing the positive into your life. And before you head too far down the rabbit hole of self-doubt, go to bed! Get a good night’s sleep, and dream of all the magic you’re conjuring. You’re far more powerful than you know.*
