Dealing with Disruption and Eruption:

An online community healing on August 23

Whoa! The intensity of these times just won’t quit.  For one thing, to quote Sarah Varcas, “for every voice saying one thing there’s another saying something else. But that second one is likely being silenced, ridiculed, censored or banned.”

You’re probably feeling the intensity and reactivity, a lot. And feeling it most likely means fear, anger, overwhelm, all coming up around the politics, the pandemic, climate change, major world shifts, protests, and more. You sometimes feel overwhelmed even trying to discern which voice speaks truth or partial truth.

You see all the reactivity around you, and you want to find a way to avoid giving in to it.  More than that, you want to show up powerfully, the opposite of how you may be feeling right now.

This is why I’m offering this attunement and healing session. I want to help you shift from reactivity to responsiveness.

Mars, Eris, and Uranus vs. Pluto and Saturn

Do you resonate with one of these situations?

  • knot-white
    You see all the reactivity around you, and you don't want to act out of fear, but instead from a place of power.
  • knot-white
    You want to move beyond your recent hardships into a place where you can overcome your obstacles and move into greater freedom and creativity.
  • knot-white
    You're ready to do the deep inner work that is necessary so that you can thrive. You either want to discover your essential inner purpose so you can step into your full gifts, or you know what it is, and are ready to take the next steps to put your ideas and projects into practice and produce concrete results.

If you’re sensitive to the global energies you may have felt pressure building around any or all of these issues.

What you’ve been feeling is the current astrological conflict between Mars, Eris, and Uranus, on the one hand, and Saturn-Pluto on the other.

The next few months are going to continue to be bumpy.  Not only are Saturn and Pluto dancing closely together (this month there is almost a redux of the Saturn-Pluto meeting in January), but — added to the mix — there are the combative, disruptive, and eruptive energies of Mars, Eris, and Uranus in opposition to Saturn and Pluto.  It’s a volatile mix.

Right now, with the combined energies of Mars and Eris in Aries, and Uranus, which is very close by in Taurus, individuals are rising up and saying that systemic injustices must be addressed.  You see, the disruptive and eruptive energies of Eris and Uranus are also energies associated with Awakening.  It’s the kind of energy that historically has given rise to protests, like those we’ve seen in India and Europe earlier this year, and, most recently, in Hong Kong, the U.S., and Belarus.  Yet it’s also the kind of energy that has given rise to big shifts in consciousness. Historically, it’s the sort of mix that brings about major societal change.  Think the Civil Rights movement of 1965, for example.

The good news is that this turmoil will end. All of this disruption and eruption is part of the build-up to the so-called “Great Conjunction” — the meeting of Jupiter and Saturn in December, which is inaugurating a 200-year cycle.  The crumbling of old foundations and structures that we’re seeing now must happen to make way for the new.

However, between now and at least November, when we will have some expansion and optimism coming in with Jupiter and Pluto meeting for the third and last time this year, these oppositions between Mars, Eris and Uranus, on one side, and Pluto-Saturn on the other, are going to make for a lot of turmoil.

This Attunement is for everyone!

I have been guided to offer a special attunement and healing session on August 23 to support you in this turbulence, and to prepare you for the big shifts that are coming with the events later in the year.

If you are experiencing or have experienced both the contraction and the push toward transformation that we’ve been undergoing, you will experience the benefits of this alignment.  In fact, you may already have been experiencing signs of these events without knowing it.

What is an attunement or alignment and what is its power?

Attunement means to “bring into harmony.”  It helps you to be “in tune” with the energies that are strongly affecting us.  Alignment means “the proper positioning or state of adjustment of parts in relation to each other.”  When you are aligned with the energies, that puts you in sync with them, and gives you a greater ability to incorporate the gifts they bring, and to use these energies more effectively.

Being attuned or aligned means that you have nature’s support for these shifts.  This session will connect you with the opportunities for growth that this planetary event is bringing.

This alignment and healing session will help you:

  • knot-white
    Navigate these volatile energies with grace and ease.
  • knot-white
    Hold your center and focus, stay grounded, and avoid the reactivity that will be all around you.
  • knot-white
    Use these energies to deepen the transformational work you’ve already done
  • knot-white
    Work through your shadow so that you can come into your full gifts.

It will support you even more specifically in:

  • knot-white
    the inner transformation that you have been working on
  • knot-white
    any structural or foundational shifts you’ve been making

Note: If you have been afraid to step into your power, or afraid to allow yourself to truly shine with all your gifts, you will find this session especially helpful.

As your Guide: Mary Shields, PhD

Since 2003, I have been working with astrological energies as a healing practitioner. About a decade ago, Spirit gave me the gift of attuning and aligning people with these energies in such a way that they can use them for their greatest benefit and healing.

I have been working both individually and in groups in this way ever since.  I have been guided to offer this attunement and healing session as one of several that will work with the huge shifts this year.

Nurture the seeds for 2020 and beyond

This year is chock-full of astrological events that collectively are going to shift us all. This is an incredibly powerful time to continue to nurture the seeds of what you want to develop not just for 2020, but for the entire decade ahead.

This year’s energies will continue to be intense. Get the help you need to move through them with as much grace and ease as possible.

What are the Details?

Date:  August 23, 2020

Time:  8 – 9:30 pm eastern time

We will meet via Zoom.

Once you sign up, even if you cannot be on the call, you will receive the attunement and healing session.

The event will be recorded; you will also receive the recording.

Please note that you must be personally registered to receive the session and attunement(s).

What happens on the call?

This is an energetic and healing session, so the process is not like a workshop or class with exercises.  Instead, I will begin with some information on the astrological event, and the challenges and opportunities it brings, then dive into the attunement(s) and session, which I will explain as it happens.  There will be some short periods of silence.  I may ask you to breathe deeply or tap your head, heart and navel (the three brain centers of the body — to learn more, click here).  The last part of the session is devoted to healing of the planet, with all of us participating through holding space.

Generally, you are in a relaxed, receptive state throughout. I do suggest you have a notebook handy for any notes you wish to make.  I also suggest that you make sure you are in a private, receptive space.

It is especially powerful if you can be on video for the first part of the call, so we can see and feel each other more directly that way.  And not to worry if you can’t be on the call live, or need to be on audio/phone only:  if you are registered for the call, you are fully connected into the entire event.

What might you experience during or after the session?

You may or may not feel anything during or after the session.  That’s perfectly fine.  The energy and healing will still be working in you whether you can feel it or not. Whatever you experience (or don’t experience) is just right for you.  You will receive what you need.

You may seem to “fall asleep” during the session.  Or, you may fall asleep every time you try to listen to the session for awhile.  This is also perfectly normal.  If this happens, know that you are in a very deep, restful state where Spirit can do the deeper work inside you.  Don’t resist it and don’t worry — you haven’t missed a thing! Just follow your body’s needs as you listen, and the session will work in you as it needs to.

After the session you may feel energized and ready to take on the world, or you may feel, as my client Linda told me, “Like I was hit with a truck.”  The session will affect you differently than it will other people.  What you feel after one session may be completely different than what you feel after another. The energy and healing will be continuing to work in you for quite some time.  Be gentle with yourself, especially the day after.  Drink lots of water, rest, and give yourself time to integrate.

What others have said about attunements

“Powerful,” and “Incredible” are the most-used adjectives from the vast majority of those who wrote to me after the January 12 attunement.

“Thank you Mary. I so enjoyed the session and the background and astrological facts that accompanied it. It was a great evening and loved being connect to 99+ people I’ve never met, but we will be connected now for sure. The healing of the planet was wonderful and so needed.”
Cindy H., N.C

“I joined the group only by phone last night and was blown away by the energy I felt during both the attunements and healings.”  A few days later, she wrote, “My awareness seems more expansive and I sense being an integral part of the Whole.”
Becky A., Ohio
