Summer Solstice 2014

Blair_Leighton_God_SpeedNow that summer is nearing an end, I want to look back, first at the summer solstice, which is such a brilliant, magical time that I feel sad I haven’t written about it until now.

I spent the Solstice in Greece this year, and I remember the pink sky in the morning, when I stood watching for some time, shivering in the cold.

I was among friends, and we slowly gathered together in silence, watching the peak of the mountain, where the sun would rise.

It has been raining on and off for days, each bringing with it rolls of thunder, strong winds and lightning; but this morning were were given a break from all of that, and the sky cleared for us to watch the sunrise. It felt like a gift.

I was tired, cold, and waiting, waited longingly for the warmth of the sun. I felt I was swaying in place from lack of sleep, while gazing hopefully at the mountain, listing to the first birds singing.

The first warm rays on my face was bliss; warming me after standing in the cold for so long. Then I watched the sun slowly rise, like a red ball of fire, into the sky until it became too bright to follow with my eyes.

I closed my eyes and soaked in the warmth of the sun.

I drank in the golden energies of the morning. The Solstice always has a special feel to it, and already under the stars the night before I could feel it.

It also comes with a shift, a change, both inside and outside myself. Somehow circumstances around that time points out what I need to do differently, what I long for, and how to focus on what truly matters to me. This seem to happen with all the Solstices and Equinoxes.

Below is a video, nicely explaining the celebration of these special times of year.

 

How did you celebrate the Solstice? Will you do something special for the Autumn Equinox? I’d love to know!

Slipping into the Astral

burnejones23I dreamt was in a big, stone building with other people that I knew. We were spending the night there, and I was captivated by a feeling of beauty, inspired by the hills outside my window. Yellow summer hills, with warm breezes blowing. 

I’m not sure what made it so magical, as this is not a scenery I’m usually drawn to (I prefer green over yellow), but there was just something so wonderful about it, – a  soft glow permeating everything. 

Soon I left my bed and flew out my window. I wish I remember more of it now, what I saw, what happened next. But what stays with me is the feeling of being perfectly happy being near this place, looking at it, resting in it, totally overcome by its beauty.

It’s been more than 10 years since I had my first experience with astral projection. Since then I’ve had many experiences, but lately I haven’t felt inspired. And I forget how important it is to be inspired! 

Being inspired changes everything; it helps me remember the mystical side of life,  helps me remember the astral as I fall asleep. 

A friend made the video above, and I could feel myself in some of the places shown there. I could see myself land on the soft grass outside Glastonbury Tor.

I yearned to meet angels and mythical creatures, and explore the mysteries of sacred sites.

So I wanted to share this video with you, in hope that it will help you as well. If you yearn for magic, then truly there is no place more magical than the astral. It’s what made magic come alive for me, when I had stopped believing that it was real.

And then there is also this amazing series by total view on astral projection, where you see me interviewed a few times.

Have you had experiences in the astral?

Love and light.
