Summer Solstice 2021

Summer Solstice

We are reaching the Summer Solstice on June 20th, 2021, at 11:31 pm in the Northern Hemisphere. The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, and we are the closest to the sun that we will be all year. So, it’s time to care for the seeds we planted during the Spring Equinox and evaluate; are the seeds growing as you intended? Has anything put a block in the growth?

Here we will get into the energy of the Summer Solstice, a visualization practice to help you get through any blocks that might be happening,  and what you can do to take advantage of the Summer Solstice 2021 energy.

What is the energy of the Summer Solstice 2021?

Summer Solstice Energy

The Summer Solstice 2021 is bringing the heat! We are entering another cycle of the sun, and like our connection to the moon, we have a great connection to the sun. We know that recently there was a solar eclipse, and it definitely brought some incredible energy to the table.

We have been growing and expanding to reach this peak of energy. With the Eclipse, we were getting the energy of new beginnings, basically a preparation for the solstice. The Summer Solstice feels like this intense fire energy, and sometimes it can be quite overwhelming, but remember that it is all part of the cycle of life; it’s the ebb and flow.

Let’s also not forget that we are entering a new age as well, the age of Aquarius, so things are feeling extra right now. Extra resistance, extra emotions, just extra everything! We are seeking change on several levels, both within and for the collective. People are waking up to the blatant lies being forced on us. We see that humanity needs to come together and defeat the fear-mongers.

The energy of the Summer Solstice 2021 is deep firey energy. You will feel this a lot in the Solar plexus, so be aware that digestive and other stomach issues may arise at this time. Be aware, and when you feel anything that seems “off,” I recommend checking out my Body Scan Meditation. Let your body tell you what’s happening and why you are having this reaction.

What to expect for the Summer Solstice 2021 energy.

what to expect: Summer Solstice

With this deep fire energy, I want you to remember something; sometimes, we see fire as scary and intense. The Summertime can bring some vicious forest fires, storms, and it can get so hot it feels like our body is melting away.

Remember – this is a normal cycle, and forest fires are very much needed. It clears out the debris to allow new growth to come. Give the forest floor space to expand. And much like the nature of a forest fire, we need that from within ourselves as well.

To take advantage of this amazing fire energy, we want to really connect to the Solar Plexus Chakra at this time in a positive way. If we allow the negative to come in, we will struggle with our inner power, fear, anxiety, and introversion. We don’t want that. We want to radiate the positive qualities to enter the ebb and flow that naturally occurs on Earth. We want Joy, empowerment, energy, confidence, motivation, a sense of purpose, and abundance. Embrace your firey badass self that is just waiting on the sideline for you to invite it in.

What is ‘Fire’ Energy?

Elements

We get energy from each element, such as;

  • air – It symbolizes a vast network of vital breath, from the winds that brought the Universe into being to the first cry of a newborn baby or first breath of life (Om).
  • Earth – is associated with the qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work, and stability. The earth element is also nurturing and seeks to draw all things together to bring harmony, rootedness and stability.
  • Water – stands for cleanness and pureness, for innocence and virginity. Water is the force that changes people, minds, time and everything, as Water itself is constantly changing, but always the same, a constant pulse of life.

From a spiritual perspective, Fire represents our passions, compulsion, enthusiasm, creativity, and motivation (as in, “light a fire under it!”). The Element of Fire has great power for forging will and determination. It is our inner light and a living symbol of the Divine fire that burns in every soul.

Fire symbolizes many things, including passion, desire, rebirth, resurrection, eternity, destruction, hope, hell and purification. As mentioned above, we are entering an age of new beginnings, so we see rebirth and resurrection on many levels, both inside and outside worlds.

Celebrating the Summer Solstice 2021 with Journaling

celebrate Summer Solstice

When we celebrate the Summer Solstice 2021, we are actually celebrating ourselves as we are one with the earth and each other.

This is the time to celebrate ourselves and the inner fire that the sun represents. It’s a tough, strong, and awesome power that resides within each of us.

Take some time to ponder these questions:

  1. What has your inner fire helped you accomplish this year?
  2. What moments have you felt really connected to your inner fire?
  3. Celebrate your accomplishments and moments. Acknowledge those beautiful parts of you that have brought in the fire – share some love to that version of you that wants to do and be better.

Now that the sun is reaching its peak of growth (from here, the days begin to shorten), think about this;

  • What peak moments have you experienced lately? This could be spiritually, emotionally, or physically
  • What accomplishments have you achieved this year?
  • Sometimes we focus too much on what we haven’t accomplished, but for the next little while, celebrate all of the wins, both big and small. Even if the accomplishment for the day was waking up, doing a single load of laundry, showering. Whatever it is, celebrate it. Things are harder than usual right now, and we have earned the right to celebrate all the wins.

When things are at their peak, we get obvious messages about what is working and what is not. We reach this pinnacle of understanding that there are things that we could be doing that are creating a resistance to change, resistance to letting go, the resistance of allowing the internal fire to clear out the debris to make room for new growth. It’s usually fear and bullshit stories (or programs) that we’ve built to keep us ‘safe.’ As we begin to understand what is not working, it is time to let it go.

Think about this;

  • What are you actively working on to let go of?
  • What has completed its purpose and is now ready to be released so you can move forward?
  • Is there anything within you that creates sadness, fear, or discomfort when you think of letting it go? Like, you know it needs to go, but it is creating uncomfortable energy within you.
  • What about your life do you think would change when you let the thing go? (The ‘thing’ being the emotion, situation, person, pattern, behaviour, or event)
  • What growth do you think you could achieve when you create that space within you?

Inner Fire Visualization Practice

Summer Solstice 2021 - Visualization

As mentioned above, forest fires are needed to make space for the new. This is also needed to clean out the emotional debris to allow space for new growth and expansion.

With this visualization practice, you will remove what is ready to go and create space within you. We need to allow the internal fire to ignite the ‘forest floor” of our being, allowing it to burn away the resistance of letting go or “burn away the debris.”

  1. Close your eyes and calm your mind and body as much as possible. Give it a few moments because the monkey chatter of the ego might try to sabotage you. Just send the chatter love, and compassion; wait for it to quiet.
  2. Set an intention that you are drawing in fire energy with each breath, and with the exhale, you are releasing any thoughts or emotions that are not serving you at this moment. Take 5 big deep breaths all the way down into the belly. Fill the belly and lungs fully with air. Take your time on the exhale.
  3. Call in the fire energy of the sun into your Solar Plexus Chakra. See the light being drawn in from above and entering the body just above the belly button. Watch this energy surround your body and fill it with bright yellow light.
  4. Think about the things you want to let go of; release. Like the forest fire, you are taking care of your debris by letting it go.
  5. What do you want this fire to blaze through?
  6. What is no longer serving you?
  7. What are you ready to burn down?
  8. In your mind, see the fire blaze through all of the things – it’s blazing through the things that are no longer serving you (an old trauma, situation, or event. An emotion. A behaviour. A pattern. A fear.)
  9. Now see yourself on the other side of the fire. What does life feel like now?
  10. What new growth is ready to begin?
  11. What is taking root?
  12. What can grow stronger now that the debris is out of the way?
