Summer Solstice, A Time For Renewal

summer solstice

Hello 🙂  My name is Malia.  I am a natural empath, intuitive, practitioner of energy healing.  Although, there are times it seems more accurate to say I am an interpreter of vibration, feeling and color.

Summer solstice, a time for renewal and rebirth, a time to enjoy the fruits of our labors, a time to pay tribute to the sun, and settle into our new expectations for the coming months.

The summer solstice offers us the longest day of the year and is widely considered the first day of summer. Having spent some sleepy, cold winter days soul searching, letting go of the old, and planning for the new, this is the time to step gently into the new ways, enjoy the Sun, and in 2016, the rare Strawberry Moon.

Solstice celebrations run across traditions world wide, and after Monday’s solstice, our daylight hours will begin to decrease, as we inch back towards the fall equinox in September.

This year’s solstice coincides with a full moon. Full moons typically are days of change and transition. The energy feels more intense, the heart chakra feels active, and we’re more intuitively alert. These are the days of soulmates revisited and deeply felt emotional bonds explored, rekindled, and/or let go of. This can be a time of intense union or deep sorrow.

My favorite summer solstice and full moon tradition is to spend the evening by a bonfire, sometimes with dear friends and kindred souls. I like to write down my intentions for the coming months and those things I’d like to let go of—sending each into the fire.

Would you like to explore the transitions happening in your life? As an empath, clairvoyant, and interpreter of vibration and color (auras), I can offer guidance to help you more softly move through your own journey.

    Hello Malia, after reading your beautifully clear explanation of the summer solstice and full moon, I realized I spent last night forming a beautiful Union that I hope lasts the rest of this lifetime. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Intuition here xoxox
