Elements to Brighten the Sunshine Within for Summer Solstice

The heat is rising, the sun is shining, and we’re gearing up for some summertime fun! The summer solstice takes place Tuesday, June 21 and is the longest day of the year. This special day ushers in feelings of being wild and free and allows the sun to shine from within, illuminating the world around you and reflecting the power of our solar companion in the sky. 


Take this time to reflect on the healing that took place during your winter hibernation. Those seeds that started to sprout in spring will now fully bloom in summer. Our spirit journey is very much the same. Allow your spiritual garden to grow, nourishing it every day. 

So, awaken your soul with the summer sun. Love on yourself and each other, be gentle, move slowly, and then, when you’re ready, hit the ground running with the sunshine as your guide. 

Here are some must-haves to add to your spiritual care during the summer months. Yellow is associated with the season and coincides with our Manipuri chakra or solar plexus chakra. Located above the navel, this energy center is where our personal power and self-confidence manifests. So, don’t be shy about adorning your home and yourself with yellow EVERYTHING! That’s a good start. 

To help you further along in your summer solstice spiritual preparations, check out this list of elements that coincide with the summer season. 

Spiritual colognes:

Orange Blossom and Kanaga water are excellent to have in the summertime. Not only do they elevate the energy with their delicious aroma, but they have several uses. You can pour a little in your mop water, a spiritual bath, or add it to a spray bottle and use it to wipe down various surfaces in your home. It will leave a uplifting feeling behind. 


Go get yourself some yellow candles. Raine and River Apothecary’s pure bees wax candles are shaped like sunflowers, which not only brings in the fire element, but also adds to your décor in a fabulous summery way! 

Other items:

Let your imagination run wild with all the bright, cheerful yellow object you can bring into your life this summer season. Flowers are always a great way to immediately shift the energy of a room. Have fresh marigolds on hand all summer long to call in the sunshine to your home or office. Besides, you deserve it! 

Sip on some yummy chamomile tea with honey and lemon. Three doses of sunshine in one mug! 

Whatever you choose, remember that the light begins shining within and the sun’s rays reflect the inner beauty that already exists in our hearts.
