A quality of light, a complex scent, sun heating while breezes cool, a bird’s call, a voice, the taste of picnic foods, something glimpsed from the corner of your eye…any of these and so much more may spark a memory that brings feelings of safety, of the beauty of love – memories of home.
Summer is full of these memories, and as we go deeper into these ripe days of August, our hearts open, our breathing becomes deeper; we feel a sense of comfort that reminds us of our youth and the freedom and peace of long vacations. As adults, we may rarely experience those feelings as fully as we did as children, but the memories stay with us and help carry our spirits through the greater responsibilities we bear. It is good to immerse into the feelings of summer and the memories they bring, to release our burdens and lighten our hearts and minds.
All souls carry the memory of our eternal spiritual home, of unity, wholeness, and joy that we knew there.
These subliminal soul memories carry even greater innocence and beauty than our memories of youthful summers. Yet, the youthful memories may spark within us the deeper memories of our home in spirit. Compared to our time in that spirit home, time on earth is like a blink of an eye, yet it seems from the earthly perspective to be the opposite.
We are like small children who only know what we see before us; everything else doesn’t exist. We may not remember that our home in spirit still exists because it is harder to perceive once we are in human form.
Many people don’t feel worthy of the great love that holds us always from our home in spirit and which calls us back during sleep, or sometimes in meditation and when our time on earth is finished. And for many, the belief is denied because the world is hard, and we have become embittered.
But when we feel moist sand under our foot and water lapping at our toes or hear the seagulls cry and taste the water-moistened breeze, we can hardly help but open our hearts and let love in from that highest source of home that we are all connected to for eternity.
Summer causes our spiritual selves to expand beyond our human experience. Because of the bright summer sun and its increased energy, all of life reaches upward and out and then inflows the love of the true source of life. With that comes a lightness and unity that imbues us with promise and gratitude. It also brings seeds of enlightenment. And so, during these summer times of expansion and relaxation, we may find something growing within us – a new sense of self, a new direction or adventure for our lives, a feeling of hope.
The innocence we remember from childhood summers and deep within our souls from our eternal home in spirit provides a calm center within us. It helps us to believe that we will make it through this time of change we are undergoing on planet Earth and emerge with a better experience than ever before.
