4 Great Ways to Tap into Your Potential and Manifest Your Dreams

I am so excited to celebrate Summer Solstice this year . . . gathering friends, creating great meals, and standing by a campfire on the beach to welcome the longest light day of the year. Solstice is a powerfully charged ritual for me.

Think of rituals as meditations: they flush us into the present moment with awareness and gratitude, and this slows life down and gives us the chance to reflect, ponder, and dream. We don’t often take these types of impulses seriously. They come to mind, but just as swiftly they disappear. Do your best to listen when they appear.

What rituals do you practice in your life? What do they mean to you? Do they unleash a part of you that has been hidden from the light?

Summer Solstice is about casting light on the places in us that are shadowed. Staying in those shadows limits our ability to break through limiting beliefs and stifles our potential. 

Filling ourselves with light—the energy of the sun—is the healing balm that resonates for our spirits. When you stand in the light of the sun, tilt your head toward it and feel its strength and power. Tap into the powerful healing potential of the sun.

Here are 4 of my favorite Summer Solstice rituals:

  1. Build a bonfire. Gather friends and family. Have a potluck with an in-season and local theme to celebrate the start of the growing season. Ask people to write or find a poem that speaks to summer. Read your poems around the campfire and celebrate the solstice.
  2. Create a vision board. Consider yellow as a theme color. Inspire yourself to go outside your comfort zone. What is it you’d like to create this summer? Think big, even if it makes you feel a bit vulnerable. Pinterest is a great source for making specialty boards.
  3. Have a dance party. If dancing around the Maypole isn’t your thing, find your favorite playlist, crank up the music, and DANCE!
  4. Practice yoga and meditation. Honor the sun with sun salutations and a gratitude meditation. Make space in your head, heart, and spirit for the light of the sun to shine through.

Create your version of what this celebration means to you. Think big or small, but make it your own. Then share it with me on my blog or on social media. I’d love to hear from you.

Happy Summer!
