When the sun gets to the zenith and it is the longest day of the year, this is a time to celebrate. This is a natural cultural thing and many people around the world celebrate this day. This is a moment where people learn to look at the sun and see that the sun soaked up the darkness and the days are longer.
There are many different celebrations that people have during the summer solstice, and this has gone as far back as ancient times. The celebration is something that you can do on your own or something that you can do from tradition. If you are ready to celebrate the summer solstice, here are some great ways to do so:
One of the best things that you can do during the summer solstice is to manifest things in your life. This is a masculine time, and it is a time to focus on things that you want. You can do this right when you wake up in the morning or when the sun is going down. You can do these rituals and they can help you to manifest things.
Start with the sun salutes yoga pose. If you cannot do this, just take time to meditate and think on the sun.
Talk about the things that you want to manifest in your life and the solar cycle that you will complete what you want in. Feel your body changing and let the light of the sun soak into you from the top of your head and down.
Another powerful ritual that you can do is to use fire to transform who you are. The fire is one that changes things and can destroy things and you can celebrate this by lighting a candle. Do this and even roast something in the oven.
Light the candle and say these things:
- Let the fire transform me.
- Let the fire be powerful and let me be powerful.
- Let the fire destroy bad things.
- I ask the power of the sun to come and help me to be a better person.
Do this a few times and once you finish, cook something, or blow out the candle to end the ritual.
The best way to get the power from the sun is to go out in it. Go out and sit in the sun and drink tea and relax. You can add herbs to your tea and make a perfect drink for outside.
Spend a couple of hours in the sun going for a walk, laying out or just sitting there reading. Let the sun be absorbed into your skin.
Once you are finished, take a salt bath, and let the negativity go into the bath and embrace the power of the sun.
The summer solstice can bring you power to better yourself. This is a time where you can figure out who you are, and you can look inward for changes. Take a picture of yourself from when you were young and write down a mantra that can help you to be better.
Light a candle and put the photo of yourself by the candle. Write a letter to the old you and then burn it.
Make a promise to yourself that you will let the past go and then put the candle out.
Embracing Summer Solstice
If you want to embrace the summer solstice, you can do a ceremony by using a piece of wood.
Before the sun comes up, put the crystal that you have on the window sill and let the sun charge it. Leave it there until the sun sets.
Bring the crystal in and light the candle. Ask the summer solstice to make you strong and to bring change and goodness in your life. Ask it to help you grow.
Light the piece of wood and walk around your home and do this three times. When you are finished, blow the wood out and put the crystal in your hands and feel the vibrations of it.
Let the crystal warm up from your body heat and speak to the crystal about what you want in the summer solstice. This will be powerful for you and will help you to grow.
Blow the candle out.
Connect with the summer solstice in an intentional way. Do this by doing rituals and by connecting with the power of the sun. Take time to reflect on who you are and what you want in your life. Let the energy of the sun guide you and keep you safe.
