Don’t miss the best time of the year to sync with the Universe!
What exactly is the Winter Solstice (冬至)?
The Winter Solstice (冬至) is an annual phenomenon and it happens at the same instance for all of us, everywhere on Earth. In the Northern hemisphere the Winter Solstice (冬至) is the longest night of the year, because it is tilted away from the sun, and receives the least amount of sunlight on that day.
This year 2016, the Winter Solstice (冬至) occurs on Wednesday December 21st at 10:44 GMT (Universal time) or 18:44 (Singapore Time).
What is the significance of Winter Solstice (冬至)?
The day after the Winter Solstice (冬至) marks the beginning of lengthening days, leading up to the Summer Solstice (夏至) in June. This signifies the start of declination of the Yin (阴) energies after it reaches its strongest peak and the rekindling of the Yang (阳) energies, which is also, a return of a new cycle, and a start of a new year.
How to Live Right and Bright
Being an integral part of the Universe, we have to live our lives in sync with how Universe lives hers.
In Winter, the Universe and Nature start to conserve their energies and storing their Yang (阳) energies so much so that even insects hibernate, water turns ice, etc. In short, the Yang (阳) energies should never be awaken.
It’s rare to have thunders during Winter times as thunders are considered Yang (阳) energies. In the event there are thunders during Winter seasons, this would be what we called ‘Awakening the Yang (阳) – 扰乎阳’. When this happens, it is an impending sign of a possible epidemic (or worse, pandemic) outbreak, e.g., bird flu outbreak in the coming months.
This is where all of us need to know how we could strengthen our body system and immunity the natural way by living in tune with how Nature lives hers.
