Merry Solstice!

Check out this playlist!

I know some people started celebrating yesterday, but my calendar and the sunrise/sunset calendar say today’s the day!

Today started with waking up at sunrise, sitting out on the front porch (until the mosquito trucks came) and a meditation.


I took a detour from my normal mantra, though it made an appearance too. Instead, this morning I took the time to work on my chakras a little. I have been so overwhelmed with options, choices and generally lacking a clear, focused direction. So this morning, using the energy of the sun at its strongest, I focused on my chakras, and an interesting thing happened….


Normally my chakra meditation starts with my roots and works up–pretty typical–but I use the energies to feed my root chakra, where I feel the least connected. Today I realized this also channels the energy through my sacral chakra, my creative center. My sacral chakra does NOT need any help. I am firing creatively on all centers. Instead, I need that energy to move UP.

I need that energy to fuel my connection to other, my communication skills and my ability to see to the core of problems to help people.

So I reversed course.

Instead of pulling energy down to my root, I pushed it up to my throat and third eye chakras.


Here’s a great, simple chakra meditation from Womangic!


Now, I’m taking the day to contemplate and focus on building on that energy and pour myself into the projects I have going before starting any others.

Oh, and I left one of my roller perfumes out in the garden to soak up the sun’s energy to be used all year to energize my goals and focus my attention!

How are you celebrating the holiday?
