Wash your spirit clean.

guide intention knowledge love symbols vision

Keep close to nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. —John Muir

Celebrate the first of each season.

In this hemisphere, it's winter solstice, and everything is crisp and clean. The snow came early in December, like a normal year — so at least nature seems on our side. Consider the balance nature offers us as we celebrate the darkest day. Mid-hibernation — give in to sleep — and recover with good food and the company of those who make you whole again.

The days will grow brighter and brighter and soon, the metaphorical seeds we planted in fall will take root as they stretch open in the warming soil of springtime. For now, settle in, there's lots of winter still ahead.

Honoring the Winter Solstice

The graphic is a simplification of my Mandala of Innate Intention. Second line of the Mandala:

Philosophies that serve to assign methodical thinking to explain our existence / purpose / inner-peace.

Spirit Balance Pendant by Melissa Osgood Studio

I like to draw on metal. The Spirit Balance Pendant is a hand-engraved wearable sketch in sterling silver. The graphic on the Spirit Balance pendant is a simplification of my Mandala of Innate Intention. The four quadrants represent four distinct seasons divided by solstices and equinoxes. The outer triad represents Ayurvedic "seasons" Vata, Pitta, Kapha.
