13 Holy Nights

13 Guided Meditations inspired by the Mystic Poets to help us get quiet, go inside, and find the light within

 

Are You Ready to Root Deeper into the Unseen?

The world is upside down right now. Intensity is magnified. The old structures are falling away. The dark goddess is pulling us down and in.

Now, more than ever it is time to, as Rumi wrote, “move within, but don’t move the way that fear makes you move.”

We are being asked to slow down and re-member. To root deeper into the Unseen. To trust and let go.

The holy-days are a powerful time of year. A sacred pause, the liminal space between darkness and light. An in-between place to get quiet, take stock, dream, and allow the seeds for the next year to be planted.

But often we forget. And get caught in chaos and outward focus. Or in despair. Or in aloneness and separation.

That’s when it’s time to go inside and find our own light. To let the dream that is wanting to be born to dream us.

“It’s time to go into the dark

where the night has eyes to recognize its own.

There you can be sure

you are not beyond love.”

~David Whyte

 

What Are the 13 Holy Nights?

The 13 Holy Nights is an esoteric practice from the Anthroposophic tradition (via Rudolf Steiner and others) designed to help us tap into the spirit of the season and listen to the small, still voice within. This holy time of year is the darkest in the Northern Hemisphere, but it is also one of the most luminous, when our inner light is the brightest and Source is dreaming us into form.

The 13 Holy Nights practice begins at sunset on December 24th and goes through sunset on January 6th. This is a time of dreaming, hibernation, listening, and allowing Source to plant its seeds in us for the coming year. According to some traditions, the first of the Holy Nights (December 24th-December 25th) contains the imprint for the entire next year, while each of the subsequent nights contains the imprint for one of the months. (For example, sunset December 25th-sunset December 26th represents January, while sunset December 26th-sunset December 27th represents February, etc.).

Practicing during the Holy Nights doesn’t require much. Just a journal, perhaps a candle, an oracle deck if you’d like, your own curiosity, and a small window of time to go within.

I was first introduced to this practice in 2003 and have been doing it every year since. It is one of my favorite things to do. This year I’m adding sweet, simple meditations to the mix, inspired by the mystic poets to help guide our practice.

No matter what your religious or spiritual background you can participate in this sacred practice of finding your inner guidance and setting the tone for your new year.

If you feel called, I invite you join me for this internal, dreamtime activation. To re-member your light and listen to what dream is wanting to dream itself through you and into form.
