On the morning of the solstice sunrise a group of friends and I celebrated the summer solstice event by performing a ceremony together, based on the information Belsebuub gives in his work The Path of the Spiritual Sun where he explains some of universal symbols of nature and life.
An Eagle and a Snake
When the celebration was over two friends drove me and my friend back to our house. When they dropped us off one of them pointed out a low flying eagle passing just over the car. They drove away and only my friend and I were left.
Moments after that the same eagle rose up from out of sight, and I saw that in its beak…. it held a whirling and curling snake!!!
I’d never once seen this in person before in my life and yet right there, at the time of the summer solstice and having just done a ceremony featuring this symbolism, this occurred.
This experience didn’t have a dramatic impact or anything like that when it happened. Yet to me I couldn’t help but feel that there was an unmistakable nod of the divine demonstrating their presence at that time.
For example Belsebuub describes how at the summer solstice the forces of Father, Mother and Son (also represented by the eagle, serpent and the sun respectively) unite fully for the return to the absolute source.
A Scarab Beetle
A day or two after, still around the solstice time, some friends and I were having a little spontaneous picnic in the afternoon. We lacked proper cutlery and my fingers ended up being a bit sticky from the food.
All of a sudden a beautiful scarab beetle landed right on top of my finger. That’s peculiar I thought, as it had never happened to me before, but it made me remember something I read on the symbolic meaning the ancient Egyptians attributed to this little creature.
From what I remember: How just as the sun ‘rolls’ across the sky during the day, the scarab beetle rolls its ball (of dung) across the desert plains just before sunrise, and was therefore associated with the sun, as a solar symbolism.
Unlike some other insects I didn’t really mind this little fellow. It seemed completely aloof and unfazed by anything around him. Just focusing, in it’s own beetle-like way, on cleaning the food on my finger. 🙂
I’m generally fairly skeptical by nature. In the astral dimension the direct personal experience of events confidently assures me of their source. In the physical, while I feel there’s also a lot of divine help as well, for me this can be more difficult to objectively perceive, but these little occurrences in nature representing symbols from the solstice ceremonies I had seen within just a couple of days and that happened during that exact special time of the year made me feel like they hinted at a higher influence in physical life from above.
