To Every Thing There Is A Season
To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven:
The Summer Solstice marks the longest period of daylight north of the equator, while south of the equator it is the longest period of darkness. In ancient times the summer solstice or midsummer was the time in which the Sun god Sol who has reached his greatest strength was sacrificed to the Great Mother so as to begin his journey back into the darkness to the underworld. Fire is used ceremonially to symbolize the great strength and masculine power within us. As we hold both the aspects of the divine masculine and feminine this solstice helps us to honor the masculine power within, action, outward movement, sheer force and will. When the masculine and feminine is in balance within ourselves we are in harmony with the earth and all of existence.
Since this solstice revolves around the sun, you might light a candle and keep it lit for the entire day, especially if it is cloudy or raining. The fire from the candle light represents the sun and is a constant daily reminder of the power we hold inside.
Stones that would be used for this meditation are: citrine, amber, yellow tourmaline and tiger’s eye.
Find a comfortable space to sit down and face the direction of the sun. If you cannot see the sun face the direction south. Focus your attention on your breath and with every inhalation gently allow any resistance to fade. Place your awareness on your solar plexus engaging your full focus into that area of your body. Take a moment to firmly connect with your Intention for this practice. Imagine a yellow orb or a wheel of light, with color, richness and power of the brilliant sun at the center of your solar plexus. Set an intention to balance this chakra and be willing to face the things that are out of alignment with the truth of your being. This chakra called Manipura means the seat of jewels. It is known as the power chakra for it is the source of your personal power and Will. The following affirmations if repeated daily can help address some of the issues surrounding the chakra.
1. I respect and honor myself.
2. I can achieve anything I desire.
3. I believe in myself.
4. I deserve to be loved and respected by those around me.
5. I have the self confidence, self discipline and ability to achieve my goals.
6. I have the perfect amount of momentum and energy to take action.
Now imagine the sun’s power in the center of your being radiating outward. You have the power to achieve and be anything you desire. Bring the yellow light up and connect it directly into the heart. Creating a sense and feeling of full appreciation and love of Self.
It is through this season and the sun’s power that symbolizes the power within each and every one of us. So that we may see the beauty of life, the intensity of being, the rapture of passion, and all its possibilities of creation and awareness, centered around the highest vibration of love.
I send you all my love and light for a beautiful, playful and joyful summer ahead!
