The Summer Solstice, Alban Heruin, or Litha runs from the 21st to the 23rd of June. The Solstice is a time when the longest day of the year is celebrated, and the daylight is longer than the night. This solar festival represents enlightenment, light, truth.

How to prepare for a prayer?
These steps below aren’t a must, but they’ll help you make your prayer work.
Decorate the house with wreaths of flowers, colored tablecloths, and flower holders with stalks of wheat and poppies, whose union symbolizes abundance and happiness.
Cleanse your space!
Purify the house with charcoal herbs made of bay leaf, sage, and cinnamon.
Place as many candles and braziers as possible in the rooms. Litha is the feast of the absolute triumph of Light and is therefore characterized by a massive presence of fires and skylights.
As with Samhain, even at this moment, the veil between the two worlds is thinner and the magic is more effective. This is a time to harvest magical herbs suitable for our purposes.
The magic of love and healing is suitable for this time of the year. Litha night is the time when witches collect magical plants and dry them for use in the winter.
Collect morning dew!
On the morning of the Eve of the summer solstice, get up before dawn to collect the morning dew. Collect as much of it as you can, then filter it and use a part of it for purifying baths.
Place the remaining dew in a jug or glass bottle and get ready to collect herbs.
Light a white candle!
Before chanting your prayer or before doing your little ritual, light up a white candle to let its bright energy become a symbol of the light of Litha, defeating darkness and guiding you, your life, and your soul.
Make a bonfire!
If you can, make a bonfire and spend some time outside enjoying its energy, its warm flames and its vibrant light. Feel your energy getting in tune with it. Use this bonfire as a meditative tool, as a way to feel the connection between your own inner energy, your fire getting in sync with the energy of the bonfire.
Prayer for Litha
“Light, light, light
Come to me
Shine my life
Brighten my path
I am ready to welcome your energy, Litha,
I am grateful for your light, Litha
No more stagnant energy
No more darkness
Your energy comes within… your energy comes alive…
I become this energy…
I become one with you and your fire…
Let the fire of life be the ruling energy of my life…
Bless me, embrace me, guide me Litha…
What should you do after prayer?
After prayer, you can let the candle burn out completely or you can use it for more prayers, in case you decide to make it like a part of a daily ritual.
Keep flowers and dew very close to you to let their energy surround you and guide you. Besides that, after the prayer, try to trust yourself and this chance for protection and emotional management, and when you feel you need it, spend some time in relaxation and focus on doing things you like.
What makes you feel energized and happy? Do it to boost your energy and raise your vibrations!
