Happy Summer Solstice

June 21, 2012

Sun Shining

Today, June 20, 2012 at 7:09pm EDT, is the Summer Solstice. This is a major celestial event that results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

The summer solstice is the time of the greatest light and blessedness. It is a powerful time to honor our strengths and to clarify where we will place our energy and focus in our lives.

According to the old ways, it was a ritual to make a bonfire the night of the solstice to celebrate the sunlight and help to guarantee a plentiful harvest. Something fun to do is to go outside at noon on the 21st, when the sun should be directly over your head and you should not see a shadow.

Walk in the sunlight. Lie under a shade tree delighting in the green of the leaves. Smell the grass and soil. Listen to the birds. Feel the warm breeze or moist stillness.

Feel the power of this powerful time and set an intention or pray in your spiritual belief system to become your fullest self, giving thanks for all that you are, and being ready to receive that which makes you stronger, riper, and of greatest service to others and the planet.

What are your strengths? What would you like to expand upon in your inner self?

Happy Summer. Happy Solstice.

Love and Blessings,
