Here are a few great tips for tapping into the Summer Solstice energy:

1. Detoxify your spirit.

Like all seasonal changes, the transition to summer is about letting go of the old to make space for the new. With the sun’s energy being about power and expansion, this is the time to rid yourself of anything or anyone that diminishes your personal or spiritual power—a spiritual detox. That includes tapes in your head from your parents or religious authority figures, self-doubt and self-flagellation, beliefs that you are not worthy or undeserving of love. It includes “friends” who put you down to build themselves up or partners who “love” through control or abuse.

If you’ve studied energy medicine with me, you know that anything that diminishes your power also diminishes your spirit. As a spiritual teacher, I always tell my students at my healing courses and workshops not to give away your personal power, but it’s hard to avoid completely. Now you can use this Summer Solstice energy to help you take it back! 

2. Set intentions for this new energy.

After you have released all your old patterns of behavior and thought processes that are crimping your spirit and energy flow, you need to prepare for the new fresh solstice energy to come and replenish your inner strength and power. Meditation is my first recommendation for slowing down, opening up and allowing for the sun’s power to fill you up. Make sure you also get plenty of rest, eat well, and keep up your other energy healing techniques as well so that your chakras are free and clear. This is a powerful time of transition, so you want to give yourself time and space to adjust.

You also want to set your intentions for this new phase of your life. What do you truly want? What is your true soul calling, and what steps can get you there? Journal, meditate, go for walks in nature, whatever you need to help you set your hopes and goals so that this new powerful energy has a focus. Remember, it’s strong and active, and wants to hit the ground running, so making sure you know where you want it to take you is important.

3. Take action!

Now that you have let go of whatever was holding you back, and decided exactly what you want to accomplish, it’s time to take the necessary actions to reach your goals. In other words, just do it! This Summer Solstice energy is fast-paced and ready to go, so its influence will gear you up for this step. Allow the power to encourage you, increase your confidence, and give you the strength to get moving.

If you are following your true path and living in service of the light, then any action you take will help to raise your vibration, and therefore raise the vibration of the planet. Some of my students worry that power is synonymous with selfishness, but it’s not. Power doesn’t have to be cruel. Power includes acting from a place of love, being your true self, and living the life you came here to live. That is the most powerful thing you can do.

The great gift of the energy of the Summer Solstice is that it’s designed to move you from one phase to the next on your terms. So figure out who you are, what you want, and what you need to get it. Tapping into the power of the Summer Solstice will vastly improve your efforts and give you the strength to move toward positive change.
