Get a taste of summer nirvana to shake up your chakras, with tips from five expert gurus
Hello summer! It’s never too soon to celebrate the gorgeous warmth of long summer days, and before you know it we’ll be basking in the sun. So shake off those April showers with a downward dog pose or two and check out these summer-esque rituals to bring the sunshine inside this month.
Manifest with spring rain
Trish McKinnley, our 2020 Rising Star, manifesting expert and author of The Essential Manifesting Guidebook 2022 (Instagram and YouTube @TrishMckinnley), says:
“Engaging with Mother Nature is the perfect way to manifest with the fairies! And spring rain showers bring the magic. During your next rain shower, collect the water in a glass jar. Here are three ways to use this magical power.
1 In your diffuser – pour into your diffuser with your favourite fairy essential oil. I especially like using peony for manifesting with the fairies, peppermint for energy and boosting vibration to align with the fairies or lavender for overall connecting and forming a deeper relationship with fairies.
2 In your bath – add to your bath water to clear away any negativity or low vibes. Use your finger to blend the rainwater with your bath water saying, ‘With each drop Mother Nature washes away any and all negativity and blockages. I am refreshed and feel revived.’
3 In your indoor garden – as you care for your plants, you’re connecting and nurturing your friendship with the fairies. Adding drops of your rainwater enhances your fairy connection. Prior to pouring the water, hold your jar and say, ‘I add my love and gratitude to the energy of this water. May it bless the plant it feeds, the fairies it sees and its home with me.’

Love your summer goddess
“In the summer my feminine energy comes alive, I feel floaty and free, expansive and energetic, confident and inspired!
“To welcome in the summer months, I’ll be playing and holding space for lots of sound healing sessions, bringing in my solar plexus crystal bowl to bring balancing energy. I offer beautiful, private sound massage treatments, crystal sound baths and crystal bespoke sound therapy.
“Summer is when my goddess comes out to play even more, so I make more conscious time to practise and teach goddess yoga flow sequences outside. Even if sessions are online, it’s easy to get outside and my clients often take their yoga mat and phone into the garden to connect for our summer yoga practice.
“Breathwork is like sending love notes to your body and is part of my own daily ritual. I practise and teach breathwork with tapping, nostril breathing and womb breathwork. I run these along with all my holistic treatments, empowering coaching sessions and anything you book with me, in person or online.
“If your feminine energy needs some extra love, the empowered ‘fem coaching’ session is for you! You’ll be radiating liquid glowing sunshine from the inside out after this beautiful embodied feminine empowerment session!
“Goddesses, I welcome you to take some time out and fill yourself up with self-care, holistic treatments, movement, yoga or a bespoke healing session. Empower yourself with that warmth and glow that comes from within and radiates into all those around you. Namaste, beautiful woman.”
Awaken to Divine healing
Kimberly Meredith, world-renowned Intuitive, Healer and bestselling Hay House Author of Awakening to the Fifth Dimension: Discovering the Soul’s Path to Healing (thehealingtrilogy.com, Facebook @kimberlymeredith11 and Instagram @meredith.kimberly), says:
“What if you could take your summer to a whole other level by connecting with Superconsciousness? Superconsciousness is the state of higher consciousness when we align our mind, our heart, our body and our soul with the amazing Fifth Dimension. When we elevate our consciousness here, we can access Divine healing. Try this exercise to help you attain Superconsciousness and align with the Fifth Dimension.
1 Set the stage with rose quartz and selenite. Rose quartz calls in the Feminine Divine and the Divine Mary, and selenite opens all the chakras.
2 Go to a place you can be comfortable. Relax. Sit upright. Take a breath, clear your mind, become present.
3 Slowly and deeply inhale through your nose, counting to four. Hold your breath, counting to four. Slowly exhale through your mouth, counting to four, getting all the air out of your lungs. Repeat this breathing five times.
4 Imagine your crown chakra opening like a blossom. Breathe in the white golden light from the cosmic central sun. Use your in-breath to direct the light through your head, through every chakra, down to your root chakra.
5 Hold your breath for a moment, then contract your pelvic muscle while you breathe out, slowly and gently, observing the light flowing up from your root chakra through your spine and upward to your crown chakra. Release the root chakra and relax.
