Many of us are getting prepared for the Summer solstice, the longest day and shortest night of the year. The Summer solstice is known to many as Midsummer because by now farmers have long done their planting and is technically the first day of summer. It both ushers in the warmest season, and reminds us that the season is short, slipping away day by day. For those of us who revere nature the summer solstice may be celebrated by a bonfire, and staying up to greet the dawn of the beginning of Summer.

As we Honor the Summer solstice my brothers and sisters it should remind us just how precious each day and the season is. It brings us truth of its passing away of which we should knowledge. The gifts that has been given to us by the divine mother need to be appreciated as such and not taken for granted. Some of us will conduct rituals to raise energy for healing, for re-aligning and redressing environmental wrongs, or for strengthening the sense of being part of nature as an individual.

By interconnected in a larger whole, including the past, present and future. Such sacred Energy of ourselves helps us participate in the turning of the Wheel of the year. We should attune ourselves to the rhythms of the natural world and invite the seasons of waxing and waning, of birth, growth, death and renewal to reverberate more consciously in our life’s .We should remember how very important it is for us to move with the cycles of nature, and actually feel them.

We should all get up early in the morning of the Summer Solstice and watch the sunrise for we become part of it as it becomes part of us. Use this experience to ignite our passions and the drive within it, to be conscious of how we use our sacred gifts. Let your gifts bring experience to your our own true power my darlings. Blessings
