Happy Summer Solstice!
Today, in the Northern Hemisphere, we celebrate the greatest space between light and dark, yin and yang, and the Heavens and the Earth. For the last 6 months, since the Winter Solstice, yang energy has been rising. Yang is often thought of as masculine energy and with masculine energy there is a sense of action, doing, moving forward. It is in contrast with the yin energy that we see at its highest point in December. The winter solstice calls us in to hibernation and introspection. Enough sitting around, now is the time to take action! Many of us will notice we are sleeping less, perhaps a bit more agitated, wanting to get things done, feeling a bounce in our step that doesn’t normally happen in the winter. It is at this time of year that we honour the Divine Masculine and the strength and power for action that it brings. It’s not by accident that we celebrated Father’s Day just a week ago.
We are all energetic beings, equal parts masculine and feminine just as our universe holds equal parts of both. We can take advantage of this time of light and life in full bloom by focusing our awareness on the strength and light that the Masculine, yang, light energy of the heavens offers us. It is important for us to use these energies to our advantage for they are ever changing and the cycle of life will continue and before long, this too will pass and we will find our self on the flip side with time to connect to the gifts of the dark, the earth, yin, feminine energy and a time for introspection again.
Over the next couple of days and especially today, take time to connect to yourself, meditate, breathe deeply in to your being and feel the energy move through you inspiring action and then move in the strength and confidence of yourself and make life happen in the way your heart most desires.
