The halfway point in the year, the Summer Solstice is here The Longest day, the shortest night. The roses bloom, the strawberries darken, the peaches ripen. How about you, my Peach? Are you ripe with possibility, creative flow and juicy delights of all sorts?
The honeysuckle scented nighttime air makes us all swoon with romantic notions and the fairy festivals are in full swing (with or without you). Venturing out at the twilight times can put you in touch with the silky sensuality of the magic that’s everywhere…
But getting some time in the sun to feel it’s heightened power is a great practice too. You can store it up in your skin, or in a crystal, kinda like a battery for when you need it (like in the wintertime) or for energizing your own meaningful intention…
- healing energy
- a mid-day vitality boost
- strength of spirit for the tough stuff life’s throwing on you
- moxie, pluck, and courage
- sexual potency, virility
- bright beauty
“An enchanted hour was filched from the hereafter and tossed into the lap of the present, as a foretaste of what is to come……. A mystic world, into which we step as soon as we cross the threshold of the porch.” – Ethelind Fearon
So head out into the noonday sunshine over the next few days, play with prisms, crystals, and the flora and fauna in your yard or favorite nature space… I have a fun and playful way to celebrate..I say this invocation outside to the bees over my plants and then I say it again while I hula hoop in the sunshine. An earth science teacher that I love, told me that the sun has a type of rotation that’s a bit like the gyroscopic movement of a hula hoop, and I’ve been telling myself that Hula-hooping is a sacred practice ever since.
Here what I say:
“Bright star gifting nourishing light,
sparkle and shimmer, glaring-gleam.
Conquering shadows and the night,
baptize with your radiant beam.
Flowing with luminous power,
radiate blessings from above
The bees, our earth , every flower
and me! Enfold us with your love.”
