As we approach the Summer Solstice on Friday the 21st, my invitation to you is to take some time, create some sacred space, and really tap into what is setting your soul on fire in this next cycle of life and season. The Summer Solstice marks the turn of the wheel of high summer, fire, heat, the warmth of the sun , passionate action, and sitting with what you want to put your life force energy into as we move towards harvesting the fruits of the seeds we have sown in previous cycles. It is the time to celebrate all that is blooming and soon to be ready for harvest.
The fire element is one of my favorites (OK they all have a special place in my heart) but I tend to be a bit fiery so I work with fire a lot, but I also know I need to balance it with water or I will burn out. This is both a physical and a metaphoric statement. When I don't tap into my womb as well as, my heart sometimes I put things out into the world too soon, or without checking into my feelings and emotions first. The heart is the fire, the womb is the water. Fire=action, water=emotions and feelings. They both work together in harmony.
So something may be setting you on fire but it may not be in Divine timing, or you have become too attached to the way something should look or be. So the practice here is to first burn away any illusions or anything that is not serving you at this time, and then use fire to fuel what is in total alignment and coherence with your soul, couple with the authentic emotions you are putting into your life and your work and you have pure alchemy and potency. When you have potency you have abundance, and the fruits will be ready to harvest as you approach Autumn and beyond. The light of you heart and your soul is bright enough to carry you through the darkness of winter.
So I truly do invite you to slow down on this longest day of the year, create a beautiful space with red roses, rose quartz, red or pink candles, lovely music that lights you up, and get quiet. Ask yourself what is lighting you up, setting you on fire. Listen for the whispers, feel for the nudges, or the butterflies in your belly, pay attention and journal what comes up. Please share with my what your heart, womb and soul said. Share with me the experience of quieting down and honoring this time.
