Summer Solstice Journal Prompts to Light Your Inner Fire

Spending some time in self-reflection through journalling is an important component of my spiritual practice. By asking myself question related to what's happening seasonally, I can connect better with the powerful energy present in that season and infuse my life with more inspiration, insight and clarity.



Below, I share four categories of questions I have been exploring during this wonderful solstice time.


Grab your journal, and head outside to find a warm and peaceful place to spend some time quietly contemplating these fiery, summer questions.


  • AWAKENING YOUR INNER FIRE

Summer is all about fire. The sun is blazing strong and bright. In summer, things are ignited & inflamed.

This is the time for celebrating your own Inner Fire. That badass part of yourself that is super fierce. It's tough, strong and awesome. Summer is the time to acknowledge & really celebrate that part of yourself.


What has your inner fire helped you accomplish this year?


What have you worked hard on that you have been able to see to fruition?


What/who has helped you the most? How can you express gratitude for this?

  • FANNING THE FLAMES

At the Summer Solstice the sun reaches its peak. It’s completed its cycle of growth and the days are the longest they will be all year. That makes this a powerful time to mark peak moments that have occurred in our own lives recently. (Usually thanks to those fierce inner fires).


What peak moments have you experienced recently?

Remember to think about peak spiritual moments as well. Sometimes those are the most powerful.

What have you accomplished this year that you feel really proud of?

Is there something that required you to work super hard to complete?


Acknowledge that hard work & accomplishment! We all spend so much time beating ourselves up for the things we don't get done. Take a moment to acknowledge how much you do get done. It’s a lot. You work hard. Pause here and give yourself a genuine pat on the back. Life is hard. And you do your best. Which is spectacular. Be nice to yourself. Say thanks.


  • LETTING GO

After the sun completes its cycle and reaches its peak, we begin letting go as the days start getting shorter again. It’s life’s beautiful cycle of growing, reaching the peak, and then letting go in order to change and grow. Sometimes we are excited and ready to let something go. Other times, its sad, uncomfortable and there can be resistance. But, when something has completed its purpose in your life, you need to let it go so you can change and grow.


What are you actively working to let go of in your life? What has completed its purpose and now you’re so ready to move on from?


Is there something you know you need to let go of and that’s making you feel sad? Or scared? Or uncomfortable?


What would change about your life if you just let that go? What growth would that clear space for?


  • KEEP IT BURNING

Keep the fire burning baby! How can you help carry this transformation and growth throughout the season?


What is a word or phrase or mantra that can guide you through this season?

What do you want to do and create this summer?


Who is one person (at least) you can share your summer solstice vision with?


I hope you found these journal prompts useful and fun! Have a wonderful Summer and be gentle with yourself. You are doing the best you can :)
