Today, as the first day of summer (summer solstice) we thank and let go the darker days to welcome the light with more daylight. This is a perfect time to renew ourselves and restart something new. It's a new opportunity to open ourselves for a bright journey.
At Summer time, we can enjoy more the warmth of the sun and be on the beach. But besides having fun and being relaxed, it’s also a time to release the stagnation and negativity in our lives to bring positive energy in fulfilling activities.
Again, we are presented to a beautiful opportunity to see and be bright in our lives. To do so, we can simply take a sunbath for 10min, watch the sunrise or sunset and its amazing colors, it's simply in nature to fulfill the light within us.
It's very important to understand that if we want brightness in our lives, we need to bring it out from within us. The sun is a great example that even in the darkness you can find light and there is no need for anything or anybody to lead you to your light.
But also, we need to be clear, light is as needed as dark, awake is as needed as rest. The opposition brings an integration in our lives. That is why we can observe that in nature fires are as needed as the waters and new life is as needed as the death of elements. This cycle during the day marked in four seasonal stations is what brings us to live in union with change, flexibility and growth.
Come on! We all can live in peace within us and in bright love. You deserve to give yourself the chance to see clearer and brighter. Every situation in your life is now giving you tools to make the decision to welcome the new light and awake from the hibernation.
I invite you to do something special today as our welcome to this new stage of brightness with the summer solstice.
That the light in me, recognizes the light in you,
