To everything there is a season...

At exactly 9:57 am on Wednesday, June 21 st we will experience the Summer Solstice, the astronomical start of summer. Those of us living in the northern hemisphere will enjoy the longest hours of sunlight and the shortest hours of darkness.

As written in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven… The darkness of the winter months brings us a time for rest, restoration, and spiritual renewal. The summer months bring us the opportunity for rebirth, recharging and energizing our minds and bodies through a bounty of locally grown food, plentiful sunshine, and long hours of daylight to spend in outdoor activity.

How will you show gratitude for this summer season and how will spend your precious hours of daylight this week? Maybe you would like to begin a solstice gratitude ritual such as a late evening campfire, watching the sun rise and set, spending time in nature, preparing a gathering of loved ones for a special meal of summer fruits and vegetables, or by setting a new intention for the season. New intentions and resolutions can be set at any time of the year, not only on January 1. Perhaps you would like to choose a new word to guide you through the remainder of the year. I am choosing CALM.

I encourage you to use this day to honor nature’s energy and connect with the world in a deeper, meaningful way by tuning in to nature’s rhythms of life, and in doing so, connect with your own rhythms.

Blessings and Live Well ~ Coach Linda
