The summer solstice is one of my favorite times of year. There are so many things to celebrate and with the longest day of the year coming up, we have the blessing of the sun energy to help us feel vital, energized and focused. The summer solstice is all about being with community, connecting to each other, having fun and enjoying the warm nights under the stars. It can also be a time that pushes us to get out of our "comfort zones" and try news things or be with those we have not connected with in a long time. If you have felt heavy, sluggish, tired, unmotivated or sad now is the time to begin an invigorating practice that will get your blood moving and your endorphins going. This momentum will help you release stuck energy helping you to feel lighter and brighter It is a positive energy that will release you of feeling stuck or too stagnate. I suggest cold showers, hiking, running and dancing to invite in this healing lightness of being. The Sun has got your back! Allow it to be your constant and compassionate companion.
In the words of the beautiful poet Hafiz, "Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the earth 'you owe me'. Look what happens with a love like that, it lights up the entire sky."
May you always remember and trust the light
within you to "guide your way on".
Happy Solstice to you and all your loved ones.
With love and blessings,
