Ideas Of Offerings

I finally decided to pull all my collections that were all over my house, in my office and in my studio and I built them into one delicious altar. I am so excited that this is now in my studio. By surrounding myself with things that matter deeply to me and remind me of important experiences is such a warm and delightful feeling. I love looking at this altar.

SUMMER SOLSTICE

create-a-sun-wheel

Celebrating Summer Solstice is a great way to connect kids with nature as Solstice highlights the transitions in nature. Crops are starting to grow, daylight is at its peak and the weather in most locations is inviting.

Ideas to celebrate the MidSummer Solstice:

FEAST – Eat local and seasonal foods – Visit a farmers market

FLOWERS  – Pick some fresh outside, visit a florist, Research legends about flowers

FIRE – Have a Bonfire – According to old pagan traditions, the bonfires would to scare off witches and other evil creatures during the Solstice.

SCIENCE – Learn more about Phenology – the study of cyclic and seasonal natural phenomena, especially in relation to climate and plant and animal life.

June Solstice: Longest and Shortest Day of the Year

Solstice is Monday, June 20, 2016 

A solstice happens when the sun’s zenith is at its furthest point from the equator. On the June solstice, it reaches its northernmost point and the Earth’s North Pole tilts directly towards the sun, at about 23.4 degrees. It’s also known as the northern solstice because it occurs when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer in the Northern Hemisphere.

Meaning of Solstice

‘Solstice’ (Latin: ‘solstitium’) means ‘sun-stopping’. The point on the horizon where the sun appears to rise and set, stops and reverses direction after this day. On the solstice, the sun does not rise precisely in the east, but rises to the north of east and sets to the north of west, meaning it’s visible in the sky for a longer period of time.

Although the June solstice marks the first day of astronomical summer, it’s more common to use meteorological definitions of seasons, making the solstice midsummer.

2016 banana
For 2016 I am super focused and purpose driven.
I created the Laboratory5 Inc. Intentions Meditation® for 2016
Here is the written PDF: New Year Intentions Meditation
Or the two part downloadable audio files:
Part One is 7 minutes of Setting Intentions

Part Two is a 7 minute Visualization Meditation

Enjoy!
Intentions Meditation I came up with three focused intentions for 2016. They are:
Stay committed
Focus on being more of a Hermit
Gather time from all resources
p.s. Why bananas? 2016 is the Year of the Monkey
