Summer solstice 2011

A beautiful day today.

We listened to a creation story which brought us in touch with the changing seasons and the significance of the Summer Solstice.

We created offerings to the sun.

I released my fear and transformed it into courage.

We celebrated the sun.
We gave it everything we no longer needed.

It returned to us whatever we needed.

We were transformed by the light of the fire.

And were even visited by a butterfly that had just come out of it's cocoon.
It sat on one of the children's hands while we created our offerings to the fire.

An acknowledgement of the transformation happening.

Mother nature's wind roared for us as we lit our "fire man".

A powerful fire indeed.

I read this poem by Marianne Williamson.

We sang this song and danced around the fire.

We feasted on Summer's great food.

Truly transformed I feel today.

(The Summer Solstice (in the Southern Hemisphere) is on the 22nd of December, so if this has inspired you, you may wish to create a ritual of your own.)

Blessings to you.

(This is my 200th post on this blog, a fitting one, I think!)


  1. hi Ola
    I've been absent from blogland and I come back to your most recent posts... your list of things to release could have been written by me! I'm glad you had a ritual to acknowledge and release those things at this time. I"ve added to my list SELF acceptance... maybe the hardest thing of all?
    Best wishes,
    Nic x
