The Summer Solstice is almost here!! And as I get ready to share our June Saged & Stoned Box, the ideas in this blog post will align perfectly with what you’ll receive ;)
As the longest day and shortest night of the year, the Summer Solstice symbolizes fertility and the accumulation of sunlight and fire. It’s an opportunity to focus on LETTING THINGS GO- releasing pain, grudges, and regret in order to focus on what’s best for ourselves and what we need most!
Here’s how I’ll be celebrating the Summer Solstice this year!
Recharging My Tools and Myself
Gathering my crystals, tarot cards, runes, and more as we speak! ALL of these tools will benefit from the power of the sun and become more potent when you leave them in a windowsill or outside during this time. And here’s the thing- YOU can benefit from the power of the sun, too! Envision yourself being filled with light and take time to appreciate yourself, your life, and the world around you.
If you really want to get the most out of this, practice Sun Salutes, a simple yoga exercise also known as Surya Namaskar in Sanskrit, that connects your body to the sun and honors its cycle of rising and setting. Even taking 5 minutes to do this in the morning or at night will make a big difference- you’ll find yourself feeling a sense of CALM and ready for whatever comes your way!
Hosting a Release Ritual
As mentioned earlier- this time of year is all about releasing what’s no longer serving you to make room for what IS! Get started by clearing and cleansing the air with sage or palo santo. Grab a candle from there and carve a sun into it, allowing yourself to clear your mind as you light the candle.
Now it’s time to grab a piece of paper- think back to the past Winter Solstice and right down everything that you want to RELEASE until the next Winter Solstice. Is it stress? Regrets? Grudges? Get it ALL out on the paper, light it on fire with the candle, and place it in your fire safe below. As you sit with the energy, don’t be surprised if you feel a big sense of RELIEF- it’s an amazing feeling to detach yourself from the things in your life that no longer deserve a place in it! Once you’ve had a moment to reflect, close the ritual and toss the water from your bowl outside. Time to say goodbye to that old energy and MAKE WAY for some new energy!
Manifesting My Desires
There’s no better time to manifest than during the Summer Solstice! Start by setting intentions- what exactly are you hoping to receive? Love? Success? Wealth? Get it ALL out on a piece of paper and keep it specific, detailed, and precise! Now hold your crystals in your hand as you take deep breaths and visualize each of your intentions before DECLARING them to the Universe. Time to speak them into existence! A new season brings new opportunities… so make them yours!!
Side note- Our Manifesting Love & Abundance Hat makes a great accessory to wear while manifesting ;)
HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE!
