Now, near the Winter Solstice, it is good to light candles. All the nice meanings of bringing light to the world can be beautiful. But perhaps we are concentrating on lighting the world because we don’t know how to light up our own lives. ~ Ralph Levy
Summer Solstice is about playing outdoors and dancing in the lightness of our being as we bath in the blazing gift of the sun.
Winter Solstice is a time of moving inward. It’s a time to unite with our shadow and the darkness that we may experience within the world, and know that during times of gloom, the Light is never extinguished.
Where ever we are on Earth, the Solstice represents an opportunity to celebrate LIGHT. To experience the LIGHT within ourself and to see that same LIGHT in others.
Here a few things we may wish to consider:
1. Light a Candle
Lighting a candle illuminates hope, change, and higher possibility for humanity. Envision it as the Light that exists within us and the opportunity to BE the change in every action, thought and deed.
2. Breath in the LIGHT of our Sun
Stand on the Earth and breathe in the rays of Sunlight into our Heart. I enjoy feeling the rays on my face and visualizing it revitalizing, replenishing & nourishing every cell of my body. Breathe in the Light of the Sun and bring it down to earth to nourish and revitalize every thing and every one.
3. Fire Ceremony
Fire represents our willingness to burn away all that does not serve us. We can reflect on the beauty and qualities of the light. Take in the warmth of the fire into your Heart and all around you. Set an intention of what YOU can do to make this world more beautiful.
Enjoy your week ahead and BE. xo ~ Bernice

Interesting about the fire ceremony – I didn’t know that.
Lovely post increased my world knowledge which is a bit lacking on this topic.
Purely coincidental, but since my younger son’s birthday falls on the summer equinox, candles were indeed aglow that day. 🙂
Haha. How many candles were lit on the 🎂 cake?
A beautiful post Bernice. Thank you for sharing the love and light. Here it’s winter but today the sunshine is radiating and I’m absolutely basking in it.
I enjoy those days. Continue to soak up the sun! 🌞
