Solstice today marks the half-point of the year and the beginning of the summer season, a time of year for us to embrace our light and shine!
This is the season of visibility, high energy, a time to enhance your magnetism and take action towards birthing your projects, dreams and visions into the world. Each month we have a phase of this energy in our menstrual cycle, our ovulation, when fertility, creativity and possibility flourish. Summertime represents this energy for everyone!
Being the Earth Mama that I am, I am honoring the extra long hours of sunlight today by spending time outside in nature. I’ve already had a magical encounter this morning with four baby raccoons, marching in line along the lakeshore at sunrise. Now I’m headed out on the trails in the foothills of Boulder, with the intention of magnetizing more beauty and wonder as the day unfolds.
If you can’t be in nature today, here are some other ideas for you to capitalize on the energy of Solstice and bring more LIGHT, POWER AND MAGNETISM into your life:
- Do a simple ritual of release to let go of anything blocking you from shining your light and stepping into your magnetic power. Write these blocks down on paper and then shred or burn it.
- Speak or write what you want to bring into the light. Honor your intention by lighting a candle first, and then share your intention with a friend, or even better, a group of friends who are willing to hold one another accountable.
- Create a mini "vision board" that represents your intention. Draw, paint or collage images that inspire you. Keep it somewhere you’ll see every day.
- Dance to your favorite song; sing, laugh and share yourself in community.
- Be brave and post a fun video of yourself on social media!
- Wear something that makes you feel magnetic and sexy. How you feel is most important.
- EMBRACE your beauty, your body and your awesomeness! You increase your magnetism simply by loving yourself fully, flaws and all.
Whatever you do today, make it fun! Make it feel good! Give yourself permission to attract what you want and magnify the creative, fertile energy of summertime!
May this be a day that marks a season full of powerful, magnetic magic!
