Summer Solstice - The #longestday

Summer Solstice - The #longestday

I have always believed that the summer solstice is a magical day and this year is no exception. June 20th marks the longest period of daylight hours we will get all year. 3 hours and 17 minutes longer than the winter solstice (the shortest day) to be exact. It’s also the official start of summer, which, if you’re like me, it’s your favorite time of the year. I personally celebrate the summer solstice every year, usually with at trip to my happy place- the beach. I love the hypnotic roll of the waves and the sound of the surf crashing upon the shore. The sand is warm beneath my toes, and, if it’s a lucky day, I watch the dolphins play offshore just past the waves. My ‘Aqua Dreams' sea & stone collection was born of the memory of a beautiful day on the water. You can tell by the product descriptions in that collection that I’m doing some heavy yearning for the ocean, so to the beach I will journey!

The Summer solstice It's often said to be a time for new beginnings. With the changing of the seasons, we say goodbye to a long, stagnant period of self-reflection and welcome the fiery energy of the sun to propel us forward. This very physical changing of the seasons is a powerful time to manifest spiritual transformations.

The word ‘solstice’ is derived from Latin “Sol (sun) & Sistere (to stand still). This meaning is especially poignant to me because it’s exactly what I’m inviting you to do with me this year- stand still and listen to your soul.

The #longestday is for dreaming!  On this very special day, you’re invited to join me to spend some time thinking about what your wish is for the rest of your life.

Imagine, hundreds of hearts and minds sending our wish out into the cosmos for what the next phase of our life might look like. Do you want to travel, spend more time with your grand kids, start your own business or live aboard a sailboat like me? Well, this is the day to spend at least 5 minutes harnessing a bit of the magic that is the summer solstice and start planning for the next, best, rest of your life.

Remember, the #longestday is for dreaming about the life you want to live!  Happy Summer Solstice! 

xoxo – Cheryl
