Lisa Thiel is a singer/songwriter who has produced music that celebrates the cycle of the sun and the spiritual mother goddess from various spiritual traditions.
Litha (Summer Solstice Song) is a song from her album, Circle of the Seasons, and it explores the power of the sun/fire as a guiding force within. Here are a few of the lyrics:
I am the fire that burns within your soul
I am the Holy light that fills and makes you whole
I am the Flame within, that never dies
I am the sun that will ever arise 1
The lyrics evoke the feeling of how the Spiritual Son/sun (a higher spiritual aspect of a person’s individual being) helps a person reunite with divinity on the path to enlightenment. In The Path of the Spiritual Sun, Belsebuub describes this as:
Both the fire of the sun and earthly fire give light and life, and are what allow us to see in the physical world. Likewise, on a spiritual level, the Son within brings spiritual light and life to our own inner darkness, which is the darkness of the human personality and the subconscious.2
The summer solstice is the time of greatest light in the year, with the sun reaching its highest point in the sky. On a spiritual level, this special time is symbolic of spiritual ascension, attaining enlightenment and reuniting with the divine,3 and Lisa’s song captures some of these elements in a warm and melodic way.
