Solstice means sun-stand-still; the sun has traveled to the furthest point in the North appears to stand still for a couple of days before it starts its return trip to the south at which the days will shorten again. It is the moment of optimum light in which the sun describes the biggest arc in the sky. At the summer solstice the green nation will pretty much have reached its optimum dimensions and from this moment on the process of maturing and strengthening takes place turning the energy back inward to focus on fruit and seed. For the Native Americans this is the strawberry harvest ceremony as this is the first fruit of the season that has come to full maturity and has complete seeds. In the face of climate disruption growing food adds another level of unknowns as outcomes become unpredictable. We honor the sprout that made it to flower, praise it, cheer it on so it can make it to a viable, fertile seed as life depends on the continuation of that cycle. .

This is a mineral year according to the Dagara people of West Africa. Minerals store information and are conductors of energy and information; they hold the memory and the building blocks of the planet. The biggest pieces that will move us forward into the light is for us to remember that WE ARE ONE and become conscious of what we empower with our thoughts, words, feelings, and actions. Mineral is connected to communication, networking, structure, foundation, remembering, purpose and, a big piece, it provides the building blocks for life that allows every expression of life to come into its optimum physical perfection and vibrant health. Ceremonies are a way to align us with the elements that serve life and the seasonal changes life goes through to move from its inner source to its outward expression; from seed to sprout, to flower, to fruit and seed again. Ceremony is a way to feed that what feeds us truly and keep the earth and all her life alive. Ceremony aligns us with the forces of nature, to help us remember to follow the laws of nature, and come into a balance with nature so it will continue to feed us and the generations to come. We are here to remember to return to our sacred stewardship of our Mother Earth and all her life who has been diligently serving everything and everyone through her ongoing love providing everything that life needs to come to its fullest expression. Nature only gives us feedback, it thrives when we feed it love and has been on the decline and is collapsing ever since we stopped loving that what truly supports life as we now face the enormous challenges on the planet. Paying attention to the mineral kingdom’s knowledge and its nutrients will help us to nurse ourselves and nature back to wholeness.
