Summer Solstice: Honoring the Light Within
The Summer solstice is almost upon us, reminding us to celebrate the nourishing light of the Sun and the light within each one of us. Why is it important to celebrate the solstice?
The cycle of the Sun represents the diverse cycle of our lives, it reflects the natural flow of our unique energy moving inward and outward. There are times for us to grow, times for us to pause, times for us to let go that which holds us back; then there are the times to learn and take in innovative ideas, thoughts, and passions.
Just as we align with the Moon’s journey every month, we can align with the Sun’s journey throughout the year. It is a powerful cycle to honor. While the Spring Equinox begins this journey and represents new beginnings, the Summer Solstice represents the next step of this divine rhythm to you personally. The Summer Solstice reminds us to turn inward and find the nourishment needed to grow and evolve. It is a time to pause and wait for the energy planted in the Spring to reach full bloom. If the Spring represents action, the Summer represents patience.
We must develop trust and confidence in ourselves as we set these intentions in motion as we journey and walk through more challenging times. Our course is set at this point, we just need to nurture it and find purpose within its process.
The Summer solstice represents within you the transition from action to nourishment, which is exactly what the Sun gives us during the long nights of summer; we travel from darkness to light.
Summer reminds us that there is hope in the world, that the light within can spread to the far reaches of the globe and inspire others. I love how the solstice, the sun and moon can connect us to others all over the world at any given moment.
We can nurture others, just as the Sun nurtures us. Summer becomes a time to work on ourselves and our ability to be the light and find meaning in our journey, even when we cannot always see it.
This is the rhythm of nature, new beginnings transition into a period of uncertainty. While walking through this time, it is easy to fall prey to anxiety and worry. There are big shifts also causing old energies to surface and darkness can easily take over our mind.
Summer is the time to develop faith in our life, smother the darkness with light, and trust that just like the Sun, we will rise each day no matter what life brings us.
Through honoring this day of light, we energetically set in motion a period of awakening in our consciousness which lasts all summer until the Fall Equinox.
Will you honor your light today?
