Half time, the sixth of the twelve rough nights. We are midyear, June. Spring becomes summer, days are getting longer, nights shorter. It feels as if we have more time at hand although, we have the same amount of time available as right now, during the dark time of the year. Temperatures are already pleasant warm but not as hot and humid as in midsummer. Nature is lush and there are berries without end. We spend more time outside, it’s lido time, ice cream everywhere, picknick and BBQs. We are more at easy.
Approaching apotheosis, we celebrate summer solstice in June the counterpart of winter solstice. It is another threshold in time, marking the transition from light to dark. The Shadows are growing longer, and we start to deal with our own shadows, our dark sides, we all have and carry with us. The dark creates fear in us because it holds the unknown. What we don’t know makes us anxious. The imminent turn of year and the New Year with all its uncertainties gives us the feeling not to be in control anymore, which again triggers fears in us.
In the sixth rough night we are dealing with our shadows. We all have shadows following us. They are our above-mentioned fears just as regret, remorse, shame, guilt, grudge, frustration, anger, hate, blame, mourning, etc. It is about our deepest core, our emotions. They are our shadows when we ignore them, push them away, try to cover them up and distract ourselves again and again. In doing so they will come back time and again, every time more intensive until we accept them because they have signal character. Our emotions want to tell us something and/or warn us. We create our emotions - mostly subconsciously - with our own thoughts.
We need to take care of our emotions, allow them to be there, to rise to the surface and scrutinise them. In doing so, we can let the go of the past, let the dark clouds clear away and the light come through again.
The following questions help us, to acknowledge our emotions, to understand them and to find out what is behind them:
Allow all your emotions and feelings to be there. Trust that you can bear them, they are not going to kill you. They want to be acknowledged and being felt to let them go.
What else do we need to find closure with our shadows?
Write everything down and burn the list.
The following rituals can help us to turn our shadows into light.
#1 Connect with your family members (alive or deceased) and bless them.
Close your eyes and concentrate on our family member you want to bless.
Send them good wishes, love, and light.
Then say the following silently or out loud, “I bless you, (name of the family member).”
#2 Ask for your blessing
Ask your ancestors, your guardian angel, the universe for your blessing and thank them for it.
You could also do the following today
#1 Clean your home and office.
#2 Smoke clean your home and office.
#3 Take salt bath and when you shower the salt of imagine you to rinse of all the negative energy.
#4 Burn the next of your 13 pieces of paper with your wishes written on.
Enjoy the peace and quiet and be well.
