the Allure that can lead us to spiral in.

5 Charms of Self-Empowerment
Let Winter allure you.
Consider its energy – Winter is the time of contraction – everything in Nature contracts and closes in.
There is a mysterious life force that spirals in and sleeps. There is a stillness and yet the activity of contraction is spiraling in.
Even our body contracts – things feel tighter and maybe there is less motivation. Let this Allure you into the gift of Winter.
Spiral yourself into your inner world where you can meditate, contemplate, and appreciate all that you’ve experienced, and all that is yet to come.
If going into stillness challenges you – think about this and how you may be doing what an Eagle naturally does as it approached its 40th year of life.
An Eagle typically lives a 70-year lifespan. At around 40 years – it begins the arduous task of renewing itself – to prepare for its survival for the next 30 years.
It bashes its beak against rocks in order to destroy it – so that a new one can grow – a sharper version of itself.
It then pulls out its talons (with this new beak) so that it can grab its prey and continue to hunt for its survival.
Finally – it plucks out all of its feathers – it literally re-feathers itself so that it can take flight with new wings.
Meditate on that! How does that pertain to you – and remember – our body also is constantly rejuvenating itself.
Let Winter ALLURE you into some self-rejuvenation, and a new appreciation for the Eagle.
