Tuesday, June 21st we welcomed Summer in to Northern Hemisphere. Summer is about celebrating life with fun, joy and socialization. This portal is still open to bring in the season with intention and ritual. Here are some ideas to bring in the season by elements. You can take the one that speaks to you or you can follow your zodiac (sun) sign.
Earth (Taurus|Virgo|Capricorn): Go earthing, this is simply walking barefoot in nature. There are so many benefits to earthing such as it stabilizes the physiology at the deepest levels, reduces inflammation, pain, and stress, improves blood flow, energy, and sleep, and generates greater well-being (via Science Direct). This ritual is great during solstice because you really sink into your body and get present.
Fire (Aries|Leo|Sagittarius): Light a candle or build a fire. Write down on a piece of paper what you are leaving behind in the Spring and burn it as an act of releasing, this is great way to recalibrate.
Air (Gemini|Libra|Aquarius): Fly a kite, the way a kite dances in the air is mesmerizing. Focusing on this can really help you get present and release the chatter of the mind.
Water (Cancer|Scorpio|Pisces): Visit the ocean or a lake. Watch the flowing water or go for a dip. Being in or around water is so therapeutic for reseting the nervous system, making it a great initiation into the summer season.
Let us know in the comments below how you’re bringing in Summer.
