A Simple Summer Solstice Ritual with Crystals
Summer solstice marks the official first day of summer. The solstice is the longest day of the year, where the sun will appear to stand still in the sky as it reaches its highest point. The word solstice is derived from the Latin word solstitium, containing sol meaning “the sun” and sistere meaning “to come to a stop and make stand still.”
The summer solstice is a time to celebrate the light within ourselves as well as each and every person on this Earth. It’s a very spiritual time when we celebrate the light of consciousness within and attune ourselves to the cycles of nature.
The summer sun brings inner power and abundance, brightening our lives with its sunlight. The energy of the sun inspires action. It’s a powerful time to walk in alignment and harmony with your personal truth and beliefs. This is the time to raise your vibration and turn on your inner light. Honor the energy of this special occurrence with a simple summer solstice ritual with crystals!
Summer Solstice Ritual with Crystals
What You’ll Need:
- Hold your crystals—Clear Quartz and Citrine—in your hands. Say aloud or in your head, “I program these stones to hold the highest vibrational light. I program these stones to raise my own vibration so I can shine like the sun.”
- Create a circle with your stones that is large enough to sit within it. Alternate between Citrine and Clear Quartz as you lay your stones in a circular shape (ex: Citrine, Clear Quartz, Citrine, ClearQuartz) until you have used all of your stones.
- Sit down within the circle and make a wish or set an intention. Embrace and celebrate the power and energy of the sun which is a never ending circle of light. Feel the light getting brighter and brighter within the circle.
- When you are finished, place your stones in a pouch or bag, or even your pocket. Carry them with you throughout the day to light up your spirit and your life.
Although the Summer Solstice only happens once a year, you can repeat this practice whenever you want to activate and strengthen your inner light and raise your vibration.
