*8Things: Celebrate the Sun

*8Things icon

Over in our online soulcare community, Flock, we are getting ready to celebrate our most jubilant of High Holy Days, Summer Solstice. (Monday, June 21st) We’re learning the history and crafting made-to-fit celebrations to deepen our connection to the season, and to the Light. One of our members is even celebrating her anniversary on the Solstice. (How beautiful!)

Here are *8Things I do to celebrate this longest stretch of Light. Happy celebrating!

*8Things: Celebrate the Sun

  1. Listen to Polyphonic Spree’s Light and Day.
  2. Put a jar of flower on the table.
  3. Wake with the Light.
  4. Picnic!

  6. Have a bonfire.
  7. Visit thin spaces.
  8. Be present to gratefulness.

Yay! This one was awesome!
It also reminds me that I need to take more pictures of the sky :)

I am looking forward to celebrating the Summer Solstice for the first time this year! My life is so much bigger than it used to and I thank you for your contribution to that happening.

Tonight I am sending some love your way: http://alifeprofound.wordpress.com/2010/06/19/receiving-and-sharing-the-love/
There is absolutely NO obligation to continue the play. Simply receive the love that is given, freely and abundantly.

Grace and Peace and LOVE!

hey! ’twas winter solstice here in Oz.
to celebrate the depth of dark/ returning of light, I…
1. shivered :)
2. scuffed around in ugg-boots and had hot chocolate.
3. wondered what the combination of winter solstice + Christmastide would be like…
4. had a wonderful cycling journey home from work in the cool dark.
5. lit a candle and supp’ed with housemates on the floor
6. kept said candle lit all evening.
7. fell asleep to flickering candle light
8. woke at 3am, and realised there was still a lot of night to be had!
