Happy Summer Solstice: An Angel Message

Wild buttercup greets the solstice with a golden blossom.

You may recall last month a wild buttercup plant sprang up in the stucco crack by our backdoor.  I've noticed that this rare beauty blossoms on special occasions. On Father's Day, her buttery petals opened wide.  So I shouldn't have been surprised by this special "wall flower" fully expressing herself early this morning in celebration of the Summer Solstice! 

Archangel Uriel is the Regent of the Sun and is the most radiant of the Archangels. He takes charge of the summer season, and works with the spiritual energies in nature. Uriel means "Light of God",  often he is known as the tallest of the angels, with eyes so clear they can see across eternity. Working with Archangel Uriel can help to improve our own spiritual vision.  He helps us to trust in the Divine plan so that when things appear to be going wrong, we can know that ultimately it is for the highest good and greatest joy. He helps us to understand why things are the way they are.

Ted Andrews writes in Nature-Speak, that the summer solstice marks the high point of the "Year of the Soul." For a brief time, all four planes of life are aligned with the physical and a more direct flow of spiritual energy becomes available to us. This marks a time when separateness can yield to unity in any area of our lives.

Summer is also when the forces of nature reach the peak of their annual cycle. Transformation is the keynote of the season as it is easier to communicate with the angels and devas as we break out of old patterns. 

It's a time of harmonizing the masculine and feminine polarities within ourselves to promote a greater expression, a high birth, the Mystic Marriage within. The linking of the male and female, the bridging of the pineal and the pituitary (crown and brow chakra) will open ourselves to a new realization of Who we truly are. 

By understanding the natural rhythm of the seasons, we learn  that Autumn releases energy through purification in preparation. Winter releases the forces of love, the feminine energy.  Spring releases the force of will, the masculine power, and Summer releases the Power of Light. A time of Light Within, a time of powerful illumination, if we choose to focus our energies on spiritual matters. Archangel Uriel will help us understand our inner voice and interpret our dreams.  With his guidance we have the potential to fulfill our potential as creative spirits.

Solstice Buttercup!
I was reminded that Buttercup brings a message that with proper self-worth we can succeed in every environment. This flower has an energy to help awaken a new sense of self-worth.   Buttercup heralds a time of healing and understanding.  "This expressive flower reminds us to be more expressive ourselves." And, to remember that our words will have more power, especially for healing.  May we express the fullness of beauty and love within ourselves.

Happy Summer Solstice!  Welcome Archangel Uriel!

Love and joyful blessings,
