Summer Solstice marks the half way point of the year, and the beginning of summer.
This movement from darkness to light is symbolic of your spiritual journey
What is a “spiritual journey?”
A spiritual journey, or the journey to enlightenment, simply put is getting to “know thyself.” You rediscover your true self to live authentically in alginment with your soul self/your higher conscious. You move from confusion to clarity.
Your true self, is not the persona you’ve created to be pleasing or accepted by others.
You true self, is the wisest part of you that never has any confusion over what decisions to make. It knows what is right for you and what is wrong and it makes decisions that are aligned with your higher good and the greater good of all. It’s the trusting, fearless part of you that you catch glimpses of when you’re feeling at your best, and in states of flow.
Your journey back to your self happens through increased self-awareness. This is one of the many gifts of a dedicated yoga and meditation practice. It shines the light of awareness on what you’ve kept hidden, even from yourself. You acknowledge your shadow side, take responsibility for it, and begin to create real and lasting change in your life.
In Kundalini Yoga, they say if you don’t want anything in your life to change, then don’t practice yoga. It’s impossible to have a dedicated practice and not experience dramatic life change.
The sun/the light of awareness, casts light on our shadow side. The high energy days of summer give us the energy we need to take action. The winter months were your time of introspection and now the high energy days of summer make it easier to create the changes you’ve envisioned for yourself.
My question to you is, how are you going to make this your best summer yet?
