Summer solstice (夏至/Geshi)

Tuesday, 21 June 2022

What is Geshi?

Today is the day which has the longest hour from the sunrise till the sunset in the Northern Hemisphere (Kitahankyu・北半球). The position of the sun reaches the highest. After this day a daytime is getting shorter and shorter. In Japan it is a rainy season (梅雨/tsuyu. baiu) right now. In the Southern Hemisphere (minami hankyu・南半球)this will be reversed.

What to do?


 The sun has the strongest power today. From the spiritual point of view, receiving the power from the Sun today raises your luck. The best way to wake up early in a morning and receive the power looking at the sunrise. I know that. Although I did not wake up at such a early hour I went to my garden around 7.30 am and opened my both arms and received the power from the sun.

If I was in Japan this time I would love to go to one of places to receive the power. That will be 二見興玉神社(ふたみおきたまじんじゃ/Futamiokitama jinjya), Ise City, Mie prefecture, Japan.

夫婦岩/Meoto Iwa

Meoto iwa or a married couple rock represent the union of the creator kami, Izanagi and Izanami. The rocks celebrate the union in marriage of man and woman.

At Futamiokitama Shrine there is a Summer festival. It would be great to receive the power either at sunrise time or sunset time.

In England the Stonehenge might be a place to be. Many people gathered. Where is happening in your country?


It has been said that we receive important messages which change your life a few day before Geshi or a few day after Geshi. However if you are not aware of that, even if the message comes to you you would not notice. Why do not you take actions which normally don’t do?

May be before you go to a bed write the things happened, your though and anything you noticed.

Well, good luck on receiving such a message. I will go for a walk which I have not done for a while! A message might come to me then!

Thank you for reading my blog.
