015 – Aromatherapy and the Wisdom of Intimate Relationships with Dana Frost Libsyn Player Did you know?
“In the ancient northern religions it was the female horned reindeer who drew the sleigh of the mother or sun goddess at winter solstice!
And it is her beloved image that adorns the Christmas cards and Yule decorations we are so familiar with today. Because, unlike the male who sheds his antlers in winter, it is the Deer Mother, who flies through winter’s longest darkest night with life-giving light of the sun in her horns.”
“...So this solstice remember to look out from your warm cozy home into the cold of the darkening eve. Remember the forgotten winter goddesses of old and their magical reindeer. And on the sacred night when the sun is reborn, look for Mother Christmas waiting silently as a deer in the temple of nature, carrying a bird in her horns.”
May your evening be filled with abundant blessings and the knowledge that your heart, along with the magical reindeer of ages past, carries the light that nourishes souls.
