Summer Solstice Ritual
Honouring The Light Within
Summer Solstice is nearly upon us, it is on this day we celebrate our Sun reaching the highest point in the sky and our longest day of the year, allowing us to enjoy long days filled with the joys of summer, blissful evenings to share with friends and the colours of captivating sunsets.
It is a day of ritual, celebration and ceremony to honour the Spirit of our Sun for the his warmth and Mother Earth for nourishing us with her abundance of life and medicine, restoring vitality and illuminating our light within.
In honouring the seasons and solstice, we are in turn honouring and celebrating the sacred space that resides within us all.
Ancient wonders such as Stonehenge here in the UK stand in honour of the Suns first light, built by those who stood before us for the purpose of sacred ritual and celebration.
The Sun rises illuminating each of the megalithic stones which is truly mesmerising and through honouring this day of light we energetically awaken our inner conscious, embodying and harnessing the power of the Sun that reflects the light within us.
HONOUR THE FOUR DIRECTIONS
East, South, West and the North.
They represent the seasons and divine cycle of Earth's Equinoxes and Solstices.
Give gratitude, make offerings and ask them for their love and guidance.
Create an alter for your offerings, think flowers, crystals, incense and any precious objects that wish to create a beautiful space of sacred of intention.
Begin by lightning candles in honour of each direction, take a breath, centre you being and come into your heart space...
Represents the Spring and new beginnings, turn to the east and reflect on the seeds you have planted for this year and the potential of what is to come.
The direction of Summer, joy, rest and stepping into your true purpose and direction, reflect on the bigger meaning of your life and where you should give your energy and your attention.
Ask for the wisdom of knowing when to let go of what no longer serves you and when to dig deep hold on.
Tune into the energy of your ancestors for support and guidance on your path.
SET YOUR SUMMER INTENTIONS
I am open to receiving nourishment and growth,
I am open to Love,
I trust the process and am ready to grow to my full potential.
Hold these intentions close to your heart and remind yourself of them all summer long.
Offering your gratitude is a daily must, tuning into your heart energy and expressing what it is you are grateful for is a great way to be in alignment with love, especially on a Solstice day!
Write notes of gratitude, what is it that you are grateful for, who in your life are you grateful for and what do you wish to manifest and come your way.
To manifest our intentions and wishes, we must first feel the gratitude and love for what it is we're asking, opening our hearts with gratitude and telling the universe that we trust our inner knowing, calling in the energy we desire.
SHARE, LOVE and CREATE
This is a time for union, celebration and joy.
When we gather in love and with intention, our feet on the earth and our hearts open, we are connected to all that is and has been.
Togetherness, gratitude and ritual is the language of our natural world and our innate being, bringing us back in alignment with Earth's rhythm and the magic that is within us all.
You are the medicine and together we walk each other home.
Happy Solstice my Loves.
