Summer Solstice is one of those times when I just have to get outside and be in nature. I truly find this time of solstice an uplifting and soulful time. One of celebrating the light that has overcome the darkness.
Right now we are in mid-summer. Mid-summer is when we have the longest day. In Ireland we talk about ‘exam weather’ – we always seem to have great weather when your teenagers are taking exams! But it is not exam weather, it is our summer weather. Again because of school holidays being July and August, we think of summer being July and August.
July is the last month of summer, but August is the first month of autumn. These are our best summer days – days of brightness, and growth. Days of birdsong, flowers, garden parties and feeling stronger in your energy self.
I’m Getting Out Into The Daylight
I am getting outside each day around mid-day and sitting in my garden or going for a little walk in the daylight or sunshine. I am allowing the natural synthesis of vitamin D to happen in my energy system. But I also know that a lot more is happening at a physical and metaphysical or soul and energy level.
I am connecting in with the amazing natural positive energy that is all around me. I can feel myself become more energetically confident. I am savouring this moment and just this moment, the next moment will look after itself.
I Can Struggle With Darkness
In the video that comes with this post, I share that I can struggle with the darker seasons each year. Quite often as soon as the summer solstice happens I can find myself thinking about the sun beginning to turn back towards the darkness again…
I love when the winter solstice is past and the daylight begins to increase each day – I really celebrate every single one of those days of daylight getting longer. But then I nearly do the opposite when the summer solstice happens and I need to change that vibration, cos what I focus on, I get – right!
So I have begun to have a serious conversation with myself, telling myself to: ‘slow down a bit there Nuala, why not just stay in this moment and get really boosted with positivity.’ So that is what I am doing.
You Might Not Be Feeling Like Celebrating
I know that many people may not be feeling like celebrating the light right now. I know this place. Perhaps there is no need to celebrate, but rather just to allow yourself to sit in the light, the heat, maybe even the sun and be warmed, maybe even a little consoled by it.
There Are Many Challenges In Our World
Life can be so tough and right now in our world life is hanging by a thread for many people. For me this is a bigger reason to focus on the light and send as much positive energy out into the universe to overcome the darkness that is in our world.
What Will You Do This Summer Solstice?
What will you do over this next week to honour the power of the light, in your life or in the universe? Who will you be sending all your positive energy to? Can you allow your self to just sit in the light for a little each day, even if you feel like your life is too dark right now.
Light and Love To You This Summer Solstice
Know that I am sending light and love to all over this time. Blessings of light to you, may light seep into your darkness and bring hope and warmth even for a short while.
