On Saturday evening (20th June) thousands of people from far and wide gathered at nearby Stonehenge to celebrate the Summer Solstice 2015 here in the northern hemisphere. Many people, who had arrived earlier in the day, had claimed their space to stay out over night to watch the sun rise at 4.47 am BST.
I did not attend this year after joining 36,000 in the celebrations last year. However, we did get very close to the Stones as we travelled home from our day out and I could feel the energy of the crowds building in anticipation at 9.30 pm.
I silently sent my loving thoughts to those beautiful Stones, my neighbours and friends.
For those who do wonder whether Stonehenge suffers damage or spiritual erosion at these times when so many gather, let me reassure you that the stones themselves are so very well spiritually protected and they reflect back everything that is aimed at them – positive or negative.
Whilst the northern hemisphere is celebrating the Summer Solstice, the southern hemisphere is rejoicing at the turn of the wheel as they head toward the return of the Light. The short dark days will now become lighter as the days lengthen towards the equinox in September and then on to the southern hemisphere Summer Solstice in December.
Summer Solstice is a time of great spiritual power and strength and this is therefore a good time to harness that energy to move forward and make changes in your life.
Whether it is the Winter Solstice or the Summer Solstice you are celebrating, I wish you all the blessings of this Solstice time.
