"Circle round, and I'll tell you a story about when the sun was born again..."
I've said that line every Winter Solstice Eve for the past 15 years, as I've cozied up with my kids, snuggled on the couch, the glowing light of candles surrounding us.
It would begin the story of the darkest night (taken from Starhawk's book, "Circle Round")...
It was the middle of winter and the sun had grown very old. All year long the sun had worked so hard, shining its light, giving energy to the trees and flowers, so they could grow and feed the animals, birds, and people.
And the sun had grown so tired, and could barely make it up in the morning before it needed to sleep again.
Night felt sorry for the sun, "Come into my arms and rest, child, " she said. "Let me cradle you now as I shelter every galaxy and star in the Universe." Night wrapped her great arms around the sun, and the night was very long indeed.
Children would begin to sing songs to the sun, thinking about all the things the sun gave them. Every time a child said thank you, the sun began to feel a little warmer, a little brighter. Wrapped safely in the arms of Night, the sun began to grow stronger and stronger.
At last the children had to go to bed. "We will stay up and wait for the sun to rise again," the old ones said. And the elders stood vigil with candles through the night, awaiting the rebirth of the sun.
Early in the morning, everyone would rise, waiting to see what dawn would bring. As the sun began to rise, they cheered and celebrated the sun's return.
For in the long night the sun had rested well and grown young from the songs and thanks of the children, born out of Night once more.
It's the longest night of the year, and it's the morning of hope.
The days are finally getting longer. The light is coming back. From the depths of winter, the tides have turned from darkness to light.
When my kids were very little, I wanted them to learn to be attuned to the cycles of the Earth, the flowing of the seasons. To be connected to our planet with reverence, and to honor their own emotions as they cycled through the seasons of the year.
I also wanted them to live in the world of magic and possibility.
So I began to create our own Lukas Family traditions on the Solstices and Equinoxes. Winter Solstice, to this day, is still their favorite.
On the eve of the Winter Solstice, we would "Light the light through the darkest night," for the Sun and the Solstice Elves to find us. We would light the candles on our Yule log and the kids would put out empty baskets lined with silks for the Solstice Elves to come fill.
When they awoke in the morning, as the new sun was being born, they would come downstairs to find the natural treats that the Solstice Elves would fill their baskets with... satsumas, nuts, dried mangoes, pomegranates.
We would bake Mother Winter's Wish Bread, or monkey bread that is made from many hand-rolled balls put together in a pan. We would roll each ball, setting our intentions and dreams for the new solar year to come. Those dreams would be baked into reality and savored in the morning as our wishes were sweetly released into the world.
The Winter Solstice has always brought me the feeling of deep warmth, a growing inner light, and great relief. It's the pivoting point.
Humanity is awakening at an exponentiated rate.
The masses are beginning to be presented with the hidden views of their reality. There is a much bigger awakening out of the darkness and into the light.
There is a tipping point of love consciousness pouring in. And there is a bigger need than ever for those of us who are bearers of the light to anchor the higher frequencies of unconditional love into the planet.
I don't know about you, but I can completely relate to how exhausted the sun has felt.
My body is exhausted from all of the processing, shifting, dismantling, and integrating that has been happening as 2019 is coming to an end.
And I've been embracing the darkness, the shadows, and allowing myself to be held by them without resisting them, but instead integrating the wholeness of my human experience.
But just recently I started feeling the energy shift, with a new sense of lightness coming in. It feels like a massive storm has blown through, and I'm on the other side of so much intense energy.
So that's where we're going to dive in this Winter Solstice Activation.

What's an activation call like? It's hard to explain, but here are some reactions...
“I'm running out of exclamations for these calls!! I dare say, this was the most profound and powerful activation for me, yet! Holy crapalonies!! I had a flood of chills up and down my body for several minutes right after, which has never happened before. I was feeling all of those amazing other-dimensional beings. Thank you so much for stepping into this work, Ina! I feel so much opening and shifting for me, as one cycle ends and a new one begins in the coming year. It's palpable...and I am so appreciative of the support I receive from you, your crew, and all of the other ways it flows to me. You ARE love :)”
- Carrie K.
"Sooooooo, I just gotta say, the Self Love and Prosperity calls have been epic. I listened to the activation recording the other day, and fell asleep during it, had to be taken offline as usual, hahaha. But ever since then there's been a deep healing in process, core stuff and so powerful, lots of insights and tears shed, tons of expansion, sooooooo good! Thank you, thank you, for shining your light in the world! You are doing powerful work and I wouldn't be where I am without you! Thank you, thank you! "
- Anne Rose Hart
“Very powerful Self Love Activation, Ina! Best of all the ones I've been through so far. It definitely WAS an incredible call! Saturday morning, I met with a new coaching prospect and had a great conversation. He handed me a check for 3 months of coaching on the spot! I guess we could call that a money manifestation, yes? Thanks for all the amazing value that you provide with everything you do and everything that you are, Ina!”
- Kevin Young
“I'm currently in total awe of the vibration in my body after tonight's call. I feel calm, peace, clarity, and excitement all at once. I did not feel the need for a glass of wine at night as is my usual and organic lemon aid was my desire. I’m tripping out in so many ways at this moment. I just felt the strongest desire to email you. Something in my old belief system has shifted."
- Crystal P.
“I don't know how I can adequately express my appreciation for you and what you do, Ina. It takes an extremely high level of consciousness and extensive knowledge to deliver what appears to be effortless for Ina. We are blessed to have the opportunity to work / play with Ina before the world discovers the value of what she creates."
- Jim K.

Thank you so much Dear Mike and Ramona for doing so much for us all and for your commitment to help bring to the light the love we all are." - Terri Cummings

I loved listening to the wisdom that came through The Alchemists, I loved the humor they have and how they would catch us off guard to melt away resistance.

I feel like we all connected on a very deep level, and I feel like I made a lot of new, close friends last night...physical and non-physical. :-)” - Katie
"I'd give it 10 stars if it let me!”
