Aloha! Happy Beltane! For those not familiar with Beltane, it is the midpoint between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. Beltane is celebrated on May 1, but for the technical people out there, it’s when the sun is at 15 degrees of the astrological sign of Taurus that is the actual midpoint. That day this year is May 5th.
I like to think of Beltane as the time of year when Mother Nature brings out her inner Barry White and gets all the ladies ready for another round of creation. Remember—all those flowers blooming so beautifully in the fruit trees and all the gorgeous plants are an irresistible fertilization invitation for the bees to come on by and share some pollen.
We too are opening to fertilization, drinking in all the light and unfurling the petals of our dreams. What in your life and heart is asking to be born? How do you support that unfolding? What practices do you use to “fertilize” yourself?
Shaman Francis Rico shared a wonderful practice with us at the pyramids at Teotihuacan in Mexico–“Nourishing Yourself with Light,” creating coherence in your body for health and happiness.
You can check out the “Nourishing Yourself with Light” practice in this month’s video.
