Rituals to celebrate Midsummer
The longest day of the year, followed by a short, magical night is a-coming. Hooray for Midsummer!
Midsummer’s Eve is all about magic… and the healing powers of nature. Now is the time to gather friends, family and likeminded folks to celebrate the abundance & hope that summer brings. And re-connect with your self, your soul & the universe.⠀
Think flowers, herbs, fire, magic, meditation, hope, joy & lots of laughter. Here's what we will be doing this Midsummer...
Gathering with friends, family & likemindeds to create a wild & wonderful womens circle. Here we will share stories, songs & poems. All by the magic of Zoom!
Making our very own Midsummer Mandala to represent the circle of life & connectedness. A Mandala or Sun Wheel is a spiritual symbol and means circle and has magical qualities that are intrinsic to it — no beginning and no end.
Here's how you can make your Midsummer Mandala...
STEP ONE: Get out of doors & allow the healing properties of nature bring calm to your thoughts. As you gather your greenery, set your intentions for a joy filled Midsummer. Look for flowers with different shaped petals, herbs, foliage, lichen, moss & twigs (obvs).
Please note: we do not want to disturb living things – so look for broken, dead twigs & moss from the ground and always thank Mother Nature for your bounty. If you can't get into nature, shop bought herbs and a bunch of flowers would work just as well, but maybe head to a local supplier.
Midsummer is a fire festival, to keep a sacred fire burning over these few days. If you have the space, you can create a big bonfire, however, even a small fire can be just as potent. We love a natural candle (with some seriously high vibe energy) or you can use a tea light in your Midsummer Mandala.
Have a wonderful Midsummer. And don't forget you can join me to harness this wonderful energy for a magic filled evening. Click here to find out more.
