Summer Solstice | I am open to receive

Summer Solstice | I am open to receive

Posted by Jacinthe Roy Rioux on

Our days are long.

In less than 2 days, the sun will reach his higher point in the sky.

 

It's 5:24 AM. I'm finally back to waking up at creation time after a long winter and spring of total recovery. Not recovering from anything special, but life, just life.

 

After a season of hibernation and a lilac-scented spring of renewal, are we ready to shine again, my sisters?

 

I thought I was becoming perpetually tired—tiredness as an inherent part of becoming older. How could I forget the power of the wheel, the rhythm of the seasons?

 

When something is so true within us, we tend to overlook these vital tools, these natural laws.

 

Today, I feel I am back. I believe I am back—for this summer, at least.

 

Life is an eternal return.

We must remember this.

 

The summer solstice holds something truly special. During this liminal phase of nature, we’re invited to open different doors, enter new portals. This moment of the year holds immense potential.

 

Litha, the summer solstice, and La St-Jean are celebrations rooted in a shared historical lineage.

 

The summer solstice, marking the longest day of the year, has been commemorated since ancient times on June 21st.

 

During the spread of Christianity across Europe in the early Middle Ages, the pagan celebration of Litha, known as Midsummer Night, was assimilated into the Catholic Church as St. John's Day, honoring John the Baptist.

 

In Quebec, La St-Jean-Baptiste is celebrated during the same time of the year, honoring St. John the Baptist, who is the patron saint of French Canadians, thus holding significant cultural and religious importance in Quebec.

 

These celebrations share a common thread of honoring the summer solstice, a pivotal moment in the annual cycle marked by the longest day and shortest night of the year. Across different cultures and traditions—whether it's Litha in pagan practices, St. John's Day in Christian contexts, or La St-Jean-Baptiste in Quebec—the festivities center around themes of light, fertility, and abundance.

 

They symbolize a reverence for nature's rhythms, celebrating the sun's power at its peak and embracing the warmth and vitality it brings to the earth.

 

These celebrations often feature rituals, bonfires, and gatherings that foster a sense of unity, renewal, and connection with the natural world and heritage.

 

Today, I will talk about summer solstice celebrations, keeping these historical celebrations in mind.

 

Litha is a liminal time, meaning the barrier between the material and invisible worlds thins. During Litha, fairies step into the human world at dusk to offer their blessings.

 

The realm of the fairies opens during the longest day of the year.

 

This is a moment to align with the powerful energies of the sun.

Everything grows, everything expands.

 

It's a moment to look at the path we've taken, recognize our successes and our blessings.

 

As the sun reaches its highest point in the sky, we possess the personal power to synchronize with this moment.

 

The cycle of the sun mirrors our lives and the natural flow of energy.

Do you feel more energized than usual? It’s in harmony with the natural laws.

 

There are moments to pause, moments to recharge, moments to let go, moments to release.

There are moments to shine brightly, to rise higher, to be in our fullest power.

 

Yesterday, I’ve read,

“And like the moon, we must go through phases of emptiness to feel full again.”

 

As we align with the journey of the moon each month, we can also align with the journey of the sun throughout the year.

 

Summer reminds us that there is hope.

Light, both within and without, is a reminder of life’s highest potential. Light is contagious.

 

It’s a moment to make statements of reception that allow us to receive.

I am open to receive the opportunities that life has in store for me.

I am open to receive the energy to cultivate my wildest dreams.

 

In Nordic regions, where winters are long and harsh, the summer solstice feels like a total rebirth—hope, abundance, and celebration.

 

When nature is at its peak, it’s time to celebrate our blessings and this summit of vitality.

 

I should quote Democritus just to say:

“A life without festivity is a long road without an inn.”

 

This is probably the best time of the year to be free, totally whole, and even a bit insane!

 

The days are long, the nights are short. Summer solstice is almost here.

A crucial point in the wheel of the year.

 

We are vibratory beings living in a vibratory world. We are connected to these rhythms.

Everything is connected.

Everything is one.
