The summer solstice marks the longest day & the shortest night of the earth’s solar year. This year the solstice is celebrated this Friday, June 21st. For me, experiencing pregnancy for the first half of the year (from the winter solstice until now) seems to have flown by & been full of exciting changes. On the longest day I intend to meditate on this change & soak in the energy of the sun (if it ever stops raining). I will focus on the gratitude, amazement & connection I feel to the universe.
Sadhana is a conscious practice to look within & connect to the infinite power within you & the universe. The word solstice comes from the Latin word sōlstitium the (apparent) standing still of the sun. Take the time this weekend to stand still & reflect as we move into the next half of the year.
Don’t forget to look up at the sky two days after the solstice for the full moon “super moon!”
