As we are fast approaching the end of another Solar cycle (the turning point of the year called Sandhia in Sanskrit, means joint/ juncture) i feel naturally drawn to Akasha, the Element Space and to Meditate on large scale events , like the revolution of the planets around the Sun and the movement of the Sun around the Centre of our Galaxy ( the Milky Way ) .
Wherever there is a turning point ( end of a cycle) there is a natural deceleration of our brainwaves, then a bend ( Sandhia – transition) and then acceleration resumes ( our normal rhythm of day to day life) . Here the transition and change in direction is clearly marked by the Sun : peak of darkness at Winter Solstice /transition/ Sandhia and return of the Light /change in direction / increase in energy in the form of Charged Prana radiated from the Sun.
Therefore this is a perfect time to practice Akasha Dharana and Darshan, Concentration on the Space Element and Visualisation of the Cosmos. Akasha is the infinite Space before creation as well as the container of everything that is manifested and can be perceived as the invisible Space between things that interconnects them as well as the infinite Space surrounding things.
Sandhya is by far one of the most fascinating subjects around this time of year. We are approaching a most talked about transition that is Winter Solstice 2012 , happening at 11:11 am GMT on the 21 – 12 – 2012. Sandhya is when we shift and start to look at what fills the dimensions of space and time between now and the event, whathever the event.

When we look at the space between living things we find that they are connected through relationships. Relationships are the network between all living things and although imperceptible they fill the space between. As we open our eyes to this web of connections we shift from fragmentation to Wholeness. Continue reading “Sandhya : Looking at the space between!”→
Winter Solstice, 21 December 2010, is the festival of the “rebirth of the light”. This year on the 21 December Winter Solstice we see two other astronomical conjunctures: Full Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon! Rebirth that is accompanied by a state of heightened awareness and connection with our emotions.
Winter Solstice is celebrated in many cultures as an important date as the Sun reaches its minimum in the Northern Emisphere and it’s the shortest day ( in terms of daylight ) of the year. As we get to solar minimum we approach an important transition that is the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one. It’s a time of stopping and restarting.
