Happy July and the Space of Integration Between….
We’ve just celebrated the Summer Solstice and now have an opportunity to rest in the weeks between before the next Sabbat of Lammas and the Autumnal Equinox. How we choose to use that time can serve us in unexpected ways and deepen what we have carried from our experiences of those previous Sabbats. In that spirit, I would like to invite you to just simply breathe into this month of July.
This month is the pause before each inhalation and the fullness before each exhalation of breath. We can choose to pant and take each breath from a shallow place, not allowing the revitalizing energy of a deep and full breath to renew and restore. Or, we can savor each breath, feeling clear-headed, light and refreshed.
This concept takes on an even greater meaning when we think upon what the Summer Solstice initiates. We are returning to the dark half of the year; the shorter days and the promise of winter’s chill calling us indoors and into self-reflection. As the darkness will take hold we often focus so intently on that space of uncertainty and forget the Light that we carry within. We forget the lessons and energy drawn from each of the Sabbats of the waxing Light half of the Year and, in that forgetting, we do not allow ourselves to breathe more deeply, fully integrating all that we have cultivated and learned of ourselves.
The pathworking I am offering is one of integration and pause as we allow ourselves to call forth the re-membering and integration of our true selves. Enjoy!
The Re-Membering of the Light Within the Waning Darkness
This pathworking is a journey calling you to allow the spaciousness of pause between the Summer Solstice and the Autumnal Equinox to awaken the memories of all that has brought you to this point of rest and integration. Having crossed the threshold of entry into the Waning half of the year on the longest day of the Summer Solstice and gathering all that we know and have experienced previously in the journey through the Wheel of the Year assures us of the Light that always flows through even the darkest of days.
