The summer solstice is the longest day of the year, and welcomes a rebirth of our spirits. Midsummer encourages us to nourish our bodies and the seeds we have planted in the time prior to the solstice. This solstice marks a spiritual rebirth, where we can step into the roles we have been preparing ourselves for and embark deeper on our spiritual journeys, life paths and make deer discoveries about our power and souls.
The summer solstice represents the longest day of the year, and encourages us to be present in the now. To experience the joys of our lives, regardless of where we wish we were in our journeys. This encourages us to enjoy where we are now, and to welcome our power back to us as we celebrate our journey's, successes and failures in life. This encourages us to love all aspects of ourselves, and to find balance from within regarding our spiritual, emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. By embracing all of our faults, failures, successes, trauma and grief in our lives, we can better accept our ego, and our truths. This helps us to see through the illusions that surround society, life and relationships.
The summer solstice is the zenith in our Earth's orbit around the sun, and is a pivotal point in the change of the energies around us. Building on the seeds that we have already planted, this zenith offers a point of celebration, abundance and manifestation in the cycle of life. Without the winter nights, we wouldn't discover the shadows we need to address or the healing that needs to occur. We work through these pains, living off of our hard work and dedication during the hot summer months as we inch closer and closer to healing and self-awareness.
Honoring the Summer Solstice
The summer solstice is a celebration of the gifts we have received and welcoming in good energy, spirits and abundance in our coming months. To celebrate this time is a beautiful tribute, and an honor to Mother Earth, the sun as well as the moon. These cycles have withstood the test of time, and are honored and respected as the cycles of life. These same cycles that the sun, moon and Earth present to us are the same cycles that we can see in our own lives. From friendship, romance, life and careers; these cycles are always there and will be a foundation of life.
To honor the summer solstice is to honor these cycles and to say thanks to the plants spirits that nurture our bodies and provide medicine and healing for our souls. To the Earth that provides for us, the plants and the animals that call this planet home. To the energy the Earth provides to us, to help heal our pains, sorrows and anxieties. It marks the honor and respect we have for our sacred water, that nourishes and flows through our bodies and to the Moon that pulls at our emotions like ocean waves, brings forward cleansing, insight and allows us to see through the illusions and lies that surround us. To the wind that cleanses our souls, spreads love and seeds to the land around us and creates chaos, in which growth and development follow. This is honored through our songs, our music and our expression- sharing love and respect for those around us. And finally, the summer solstice calls for us to honor and respect our Sun, which brings forward nurishment, light and love to our souls and the spirits around us.
This is a time for giving thanks and respect to the spirits around us, to the cycles of life and the Sun, Moon, Earth and Stars. To give thanks to the heavens for blessing us with another cycle, another summer here in this heaven on Earth. To celebrate the joys of life, the rebirth and spiritual development of our souls and most importantly, the thanks to the Creator for blessing us with these joys and abundance that surrounds us.
