One way of celebrating the Solstice is to consider it a sacred time of reflection, release, restoration, and renewal.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
As the sun allows the moon to take the night shift, it prepares itself for the celebration of Solstice on June 21st.
This morning I asked my friends what their favorite summer memory was. Nobody said anything about sitting on the computer. Or playing games on their phone. Or worrying or stressing. Or arguing about politics. Or debating on social media. Nope, 99% of the responses included spending time with friends and/or family. It was resting. It was swimming, fishing, traveling, going to the beach, stargazing, camping, sleeping in, sharing laughs, creating experiences, and making memories. It’s not costly either. It requires making conscious choices when we become adults, though. It oddly takes some scheduling and planning to be spontaneous. And so as we welcome in Summer Solstice, the energy asks you to start planning some fun. Where the attention goes, the energy flows. So often we ignore the energy and wonder why we feel depressed and miserable. Stay focused and in the now.Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, is a time to evaluate your New Moon wishes, and add to them if need be. Then write down the things that you want OUT of your life, burn your list and be grateful for what is yet to come! Just remember that you have to plant the seeds to create it and never stop believing that you deserve play time. Let the sunshine of life remind you to shine.
I believe in you.
