Holiday Art Journal: Winter Solstice

Of course we've all heard of the Mayan prediction of the apocalypse for today. I do not think the world will end today, but perhaps there will be an energy shift, and the world as we know it will end (if we want it to).
I completely believe that if you reach out to something, it will come closer to you. We can manifest anything we want just by focusing on it, putting it into the universe, and willing it to be. 
For today, think about what you want to manifest in the new world. I started out by drawing random empty shapes--circles, rounded edge rectangles, anything. In each shape, write or draw what you want to invite into your life.
With a marker, fill in the negative space behind the boxes. I did a haphazard cross-hatch, just sketching without worrying if the lines were even. You can add pops of color into the word boxes as well, maybe highlighting your favorites.

Tonight, if you're a pagan like me, have a glass of wine, offer a libation to the gods, and know that this is the darkest night of the year, and the days will begin to grow longer and longer as the light returns.*

Happy Solstice!

*Is this only for the Northern Hemisphere? Maybe even Northwestern. I'm still curious about what Christmas is like in Australia!
