I just taught a class today at Delmarva Pagan Pride Day entitled: Awakening the Inner Sun-The Fires of Will. I have worked with solar energy for many years and what I love about this energy is the metamorphic change that occurs at all levels. The physical Sun provides heat, generates nutrients in the body and strengthens. The Spiritual Sun enlivens us and fills us with purpose and action that is bolstered by a continually renewable source. The Midnight Sun catalyzes us onto the mystery of our earth’s core and the knowledge that although we may move in the darkness of night, the Sun continues to shine in the opposite hemisphere.

I offer this week 2 excerpts relating to the Solar Energy that flows in and around us. One is a poem I wrote some years ago and the other an excerpt from my book, A Weekly Reflection: Musings on the Year. Enjoy!

Awakening

The heat moves through me
Calling me to flow along
Its path of blazing light.

I call to the ashes that
The Phoenix may rise up
Within me to break free
Of what has held me inert.

Wings beat furiously and
Strain with expansion upwards
Quickening the spark of flame.

Blinding light flashes
And I move through
The flaming center
Of the sun.

My Soul awakening in
The black iciness of
Enlightened Will.

WEEK 28: The Solar Connection

Sitting-in-the-sun

We feel the power of the sun’s energy upon us both daily and throughout the year. If we consider not only the physical considerations of the Sun as the central planet of our solar system, but also look from a magickal and metaphysical perspective the attributes that we associate with solar energy are all pervasive in our daily experience.

The Sun is connected to the chakra (energetic center) which is located centrally within our body, the solar plexus. It is from this point that we generate and release energy. It is from this central location that when we are engaged in spiritual practice that we feel the beginning stirrings of the rise of that energy. This is the place of energetic awakening and return.

You could think of the solar plexus as being the sustainer (of aroused energy), the life and light bearer (energy produces light and a new state of being) and that which warms (energy produces heat) and promotes growth (energy moves us from one state of being to an expanded and enhanced state of awareness).

Spend some time this week out in the sunlight. Visualize the sun enlivening the spark of sun within you.
