Winter solstice - An End and a Beginning

December 21-22nd is the winter solstice. The shortest day and the longest night of a year. In the super ancient times, when people worshipped the sun, the day of winter solstice was a very important day.

Spiritually the 22nd will be the Eve and the 23rd is the New Year. After birth, humans keep growing until they reach a turning point. After the turning point, they start to decline and eventually die. It is the same for the sun. After one year, sun dies on this day. And on the 23rd , it is reborn like a new born baby.

The 23rd of December is the birthday of our present Emperor. He was born on a very significant day. He was born on the same day as the sun’s rebirth. During his youth as a prince, his face did not yet show any sign of kami-gakari(divine possession). But now he has grown into a true okina, a face of divine grace. This is a face with a god spirit in possession.

As long as Emperor of Heisei is in our presence, he will continue to engage on his daily Shinto rituals that will bring the power of the Sun God to our country. The Sun God will protect us with all its utmost power. This shall result in contributing to the rest of the world in some way. And we must strongly choose to act on it for the world to survive.

If sickness or bad things happened to you, the winter solstice could bring a change into your life. When the Yin energy is taken to its max, it can only turn into a Yan energy.

This is a big chance for you to change your life. After the 23rd, there is a big possibility for you to make a big shift. Use the big shift of the energy of the sun. As it dies and rebirth, there will be an enormous shift of the spiritual energy that could help you make a shift in your own internal universe. Commit yourself to say goodbye to your past (negative emotional baggage). For example, if you have been trying to quit smoking and failing for a long time, this is a good time to try it again. It should come easy for you by using the sun’s shifting power.

To utilize the law of the cycle of the sun for regeneration and commitment is one of the esoterics from ancient Shinto teachings.
