The Winter Solstice in 2012 can be a fulcrum point for the change that is needed to occur in order for humanity to thrive into the future.
2012 can be a solstice for humanity, the moment of the fulcrum where as a species we stop heading into darkness and instead start heading back towards the light and a new golden age.
If we want it.
If we choose it, envision it, and work to create it.
A Prayer for Mother Earth To Be Patient
And so for this solstice -- for you -- for us -- I have written a Yule prayer song to invoke that return-of-the-greater light.
A prayer to Mother Earth, that when we sing it, She will know that we hear her distress and anger.
A prayer for Her peace and patience with us humans as we endeavour to change.
This is a magick spell in a musical form.
Even just listening to this song, playing it and sending its vibrations out into the world is a prayer for healing for the Earth and for Her to be gentle with us and patient.
May listening to it and singing it also nourish the changes you need to open your heart and spirit in this darkest Solstice day.
When Do I Sing This Yule Prayer Song?
Sing it on the Winter Solstice. (see below for the Winter Solstice Ritual.)
Sing it during the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, all this week.
Sing it any day when it feels like the dark is all around and the light far away and uncertain.
Sing this song to a living piece of Earth. Don’t worry about how well you sing or not, She only cares that you are singing to Her!
Sing it to the trees when you go walking in the woods, or sing it to the ice when you are shoveling snow.
Sing it to yourself when you need help or hope.

Yule Ritual -- Winter Solstice 2009
On Winter Solstice, before your altar, light a candle, to represent your spirit burning strong.
Bring a part of the living Earth -- a plant, a rock, a twig, some water....
Burn some incense or smudge, asking it to clear the space for this ritual and song.
Bring to mind an image of the future of the Earth and humankind as you would dream it. (You may want to read this blog for an idea of that wonderful future: How Your Imagination Can Change the World.
KNOW that you are creating this world with your actions, thoughts, and speech. KNOW that humanity IS evolving, and that there is hope.
Invite the Deities and all your allies to assist in this transformation, and to help Mother Earth hear you as you speak to Her now.
And then play the mp3 and sing along with it...
