Sacred Solstice

Artist unknown

Turn your face to the Sun
And let the shadows fall away…

Summer Solstice is upon us!

Summer Solstice is sacred Sun time. Here in the northern hemisphere, it normally falls between June 20-22 each year.  It denotes the longest day and shortest night of the year.

Young children dance with the Solstice Sun.  They run and jump and scream with sunny joy. They beg to stay up just a little longer so they can squeeze every last drop of living out of the long sunlit days.  Children intuitively understand the power of this sacred Sun time.

Let’s follow their lead. Go outside!  Soak up the sacred rays that bring life to this beautiful blue planet.  Enjoy the green fields and flowers of early summer.  Revel in Nature’s abundance. Get up early and watch the sunrise.  Pause and honor the sunset at the end of another long luscious summer day.

Allow the sacred abundance of summer to bless you.

 

Blessings of Beltane

Leaves bud
Calves birth
Flowers bloom
Everywhere the green
Celebrate Life!

Sacred union
Male with female
And life flows
Out with passion
And joy.

Fiery Beltane Blessings

Your Soul is Alive

‘If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you,
if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand,
rejoice, for your soul is alive.’

~Eleonora Duse

A Fairy Guide to Life

by John Anster Fitzgerald (1819-1906)
Fairy Banquet – John Anster Fitzgerald (1819-1906)

Live in a state of gratitude for our Earth.

Nature’s abundance flows to those who adore and honor her.

If you must worship something, make it GREEN – the green of nature.

Fight against Mother Nature at your own peril.

Everything ebbs and flows. Learn to flow like the waves.

Look for Magic everywhere. Expect it. Watch for it.

Love heals most wounds. Love it all, every moment.

Honor every season of the Sun.

Dance with the rhythms of the Moon.

When things are shaky, scary or chaotic, go to ground.

Allow the Earth to hold you and support you.

Pause every day and listen to Nature. Wisdom abides there.

Each animal and plant has a wisdom of its own. Look for it.

Beauty is all around us. Pay attention!

Foment joy wherever and whenever possible.

Without joy, there’s no reason to be here.

Do not fear death. It is merely another adventure.

If in doubt, dance!
