Energy Update, June Solstice 2018
by Zoe Davis
Reveal Your True Self
We have another reason to celebrate this month as it’s the June 21st Summer and Winter Solstice!
The midyear Solstice is an ideal time to focus on shadow work and laying down a direction of healing for your inner self for the rest of the year.
In the Northern hemisphere the Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and signifies the ending of 6 months of light, and the beginning of 6 months of increasing darkness.
Simultaneously the Southern hemisphere will be experiencing it’s Winter Solstice which is the longest night of the year and marks coming out of the darkness and opening up into 6 months of mounting light.
Wherever you are, you can be aware of your Dark Shadow and your Golden Shadow.
THE DARK SHADOW is the part of us that is pushed away because it is perceived as being ugly, stupid or harmful in nature.
THE GOLDEN SHADOW is the part of us we suppress because we sense it has the potential to be brilliant and successful, which can be equally as daunting as the Dark Shadow.
On this Solstice, welcome your shadows, Light and Dark. There is nothing within you that cannot be overcome if you just give it the love, compassion, patience and reverence it deserves.
Consider what you may be hiding.
Use this Solstice to check in with yourself and give you the necessary time for inner expression. Light candles, sage, meditate, journal, sing, draw, paint, write down what you want to release and burn it to release, celebrate with others or on your own. Acknowledge this shift and set your intentions in a way that resonates with you.
Happy Solstice all! xox
