Happy Summer Solstice!
Today marks the Summer Solstice.
It’s officially the 1st day of summer. It’s also the 1st day the sun truly enters Gemini. If you have a google sky map application on your phone, you can view the actual position of the Sun, as it is just leaving Taurus. Gemini is a sign of dualities and doorways. This year for the Summer Solstice we also have Mercury retrograde, showing us both sides of all situations. It’s very important to remain super positive about the good in your life starting today! The Summer Solstice is the time of the year with the most sunlight. June 21st to June 24th have the 4 longest days of light. After June 24th the days are shorter and the nights become longer. These 4 days should be spent in meditation, affirmation, and deep prayer. Again, stay positive, focus on your goals, and pay attention to your dreams. There will be a deeper meaning behind them for this alignment. This is the time to get readings and listen to your higher self. Ra the Sun God is in full force, raising our kundalini and awareness. This is a time of programming. Time to cleanse your light body and visualize what you want to manifest in your life!
Some of my favorite ways to cleanse*
*Oil pulling with unrefined sesame oil before drinking or eating anything (Ayurveda)
*Warm lemon water in the morning fresh squeezed.
*A gallon of purified water a day (Strive to get close to it as possible)
*Warm Himalayan Pink Sea Salt water in the morning (before lemon water, after oil pulling)
*Hot Yoga (it’s like 3 sessions in 1 because of the heat!)
*Sauna/Steam Room (ahhh lol)
*Chamomile Tea (light, perfect for summer, great for nerves, digestion and healing)
*All Raw Diet (Enzymes= Electricity.)
*Fresh squeezed Raw Juice (Enzymes= Electricity & easy to digest, rapid healing)
*Skin Brushing (Opens and cleans pores leading to nerves, increases healing)
*Chant Nam myoho renge kyo (translation: I devote myself to being one with the Universe)
*Summer Solstice at Stonehenge
The Summer Solstice was the most important day of the year in ancient Egypt. The original Solar Calendar was calibrated to the rising of Sirius on this day! This is the star of the Goddess Isis/Auset. The annual flooding of the mighty Nile River would also happen on this day and is the basis of the ancients worship, ceremonies, and rituals that developed in its path. We have this alignment to thank for the birth place of the stars and the most prominent deities. The Great Pyramids are calibrated to this star. The level of creativity is very high in this Taurus-Gemini area of the sky. In ancient Egypt, the summer solstice was the beginning of the New Year. This is the Spiritual New Year’s Day! This is a rise in consciousness. This is the wishing cycle, where your most powerful visions will be answered. Create a ritual to honor the light within yourself and all those around you. This is a spiritual renewal!
