Manifestation, Healing, and Expanding into Your True Purpose

A Solstice Celebration, Attunement, and Community Healing Session on June 23

Do you feel like your nervous system is a bit frazzled?  Or have you felt paralyzing fear?  If so, you’re not alone.

Between the huge energies coming in at this Cancer Solstice and the very powerful full moon, and the ongoing solar flares and storms, as we reach the peak of Solar Cycle 25, this time can feel intense and your nervous system may be really activated.

Add to that, we’re living in hugely challenging times. You may be experiencing the tensions, perhaps even fear, that all the political divisions, hatred, war, unrest, and climate change have been creating. Truth has been hard to come by.  Issues of power are front and center.

Manifestation, Healing and Expansion into your true purpose

You may feel overwhelmed, or you may feel a sense of separation.

Allow me to offer a way through.  We are coming up on two pivotal events of this life-changing year happening a day apart.  These events are actually a portal into manifestation, for healing, for expansion into your true purpose, and for remembering who you are.   are we in a portal, but this Solstice is a pivotal event in what is continuing to be a life-changing year.  with one of these situations?

Do you resonate with one of these situations?

  • knot-white
    You know that we’re in the midst of a huge transition, but the tensions and the fierceness of the current unraveling are really hard to deal with.
  • knot-white
    You have tried to step out of reactivity; you’ve tried not to be affected by the drama. But it’s everywhere, and it’s hard to hold your center.
  • knot-white
    You feel your inner creativity bubbling up – but all the tensions and volatility on the outside (and maybe inside too) are holding you back.
  • knot-white
    You may find yourself triggered by events and you may keep getting caught up in the drama or fear or anger, and can’t seem to move out.
  • knot-white
    You’re ready to “just get on with it!” you feel the inner pressure to break free.
  • knot-white
    You feel yourself caught between the old way of being – the old structures – and your sure inner knowledge that something new is coming, getting ready to breakthrough. But you just can’t get there.

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

What you’re experiencing is the lead-up to several events, including the Cancer Solstice, the very powerful full moon the next day, and more.

First, the Cancer Solstice is bringing in a huge surge of energy and light (see the section on the Solstice below).  There is a LOT going on at this Solstice (and the Full Moon the very next day).   It is striking the tuning fork for the next three months.

More than that, this is a pivot point for the rest of the year.  There is a huge shift in energy that will accelerate the pace of both your personal transformation and transmutation, and that of the earth.

Both Venus and Neptune (the higher octave of Venus) energy are a big part of this shift.  Neptune is at the very last degree of Pisces (and the last degree of the Zodiac). This is a time of big endings and beginnings.

On the one hand, you may feel foggy or overwhelmed or separate/disconnected.  This is the lower octave of Neptune, especially in Pisces.  On the other, Neptune is inviting you into a sense of Oneness with all that is, and into unconditional love.  Pisces and Neptune are also activating your mystical awareness.   Being attuned to this energy will help you choose — and feel, act from, and live into — this higher octave.

And there’s more!  Some of the other planetary energies are offering opportunities to understand and release big deep patterns of helplessness, being taken advantage of, and/or oppressed.

This is truly a time where you will receive great support for  manifestation, healing, and expanding into your true soul’s purpose.

This session is for everyone!

We are in the midst of the biggest evolutionary shift humanity has ever seen. I have been guided to offer a series of celebration, attunement, and healing sessions throughout the year to support you in your own personal and spiritual transformation. 

This session will help you embrace and make the best use of the huge transformation that these shifts are bringing.  It will also support the collective as we are all moving through these times of great change. 

This session is for all! Anyone on our planet who is experiencing or has experienced both the contraction and the push toward transformation that we’ve been undergoing will experience the benefits of this session.

If you would like ongoing support and healing, I am also offering the full year of attunements as a package.  Here is the link for more information.

On June 23 we will also gather to celebrate, and you will be attuned to this very powerful Solstice in Cancer.

What is the Solstice?

The Solstice comes from the Latin, sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still).  The Summer and Winter Solstices  celebrate the longest and shortest days of the year.

The Winter Solstice is the festival known as Yule, meaning wheel. On the longest night of the year, Yule celebrates the return of the sun. Yule is the moment where the energy of the new year rises up. It is a wonderful time to look within and set intentions for the following year.

The Summer Solstice, sometimes called Midsummer’s Day or Night, celebrates the longest day of the year and the coming of the dark, more inward time of the year.

The astrological themes of this session will be working on you in different ways, depending on which hemisphere you live in.  If you are celebrating the Summer Solstice, the expression is external and if you are celebrating the Winter Solstice, the focus is internal.

In both cases, the Solstice is a portal.  There have been two big shifts, as we enter a new 12,500 year cycle.  First, there is a huge amount of extra light and an influx of energy coming in at each Solstice.

At each Solstice, the energy lines of the earth are activated. In the past few years, scientists have been observing that the energy lines of the earth are connecting in larger and larger areas, and they are coming into greater harmonization with each other. Both the incoming energy and the expanding harmonization are providing huge support for the larger transformation and metamorphosis that we’re in the midst of.

This session will help you:

  • knot-whiteknot-white
    Prepare for the huge shifts that are coming, to navigate them with grace and ease, and to thrive.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    Step into your power in new ways, especially to step into power with instead of power over others.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    Come into deeper alignment with who you are, to embrace your uniqueness, and to shine.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    Find community. This shift will help you find and connect with your tribe – your frequency community.

For healers and service professionals especially:

  • knot-whiteknot-white
    This attunement and session will help you find and step into your healing (or other ) gifts and/or develop them in even deeper ways.

There are three components to these sessions.

The first is celebration.

We will celebrate the cross-quarter holidays of light and fire. These holidays are the true beginnings of each season. Celebrating them together – yes, even together online — will give you a sense of grounding and connectedness to each other and the earth.

Gathering together, celebrating with ritual (even as simple as lighting a candle and sharing a blessing), will also re-connect you with the light that is coming through and changing every one of us and our planet. More than that, it will be a time to drink in that light so it can continue to illuminate you and help others to experience the light.

The second is healing.

Healing is the core of everything I do.  We will gather for healing – individually and collectively. Each person who is registered will receive healing for your self individually, as well as the group.  Each session will also include healing work for the whole planet.

The last component is attunement.

I will attune you to the current astrological energies so that you can move through with grace and ease. I will also attune you to the cross-quarter and quarter holidays  themselves, so you can connect deeply with the earth and find strength and sustenance from that connection.

This attunement will support you in the big shifts that are coming with this event, and as well to support you in the next two decades of change and transformation.

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 the coming event without knowing it.

Finally, these attunements will re-connect you with the light that is bringing awakening, change, and a global shift from power-over to power-with; the light that is literally pouring into our planet and each one of us, changing our very DNA.

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 these events are bringing.

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.

Additionally, I bring a strong background in Celtic spirituality. I lived in Scotland for two years, and also did research on Celtic spirituality as part of my sabbatical. As a minister, I know first-hand the importance of ritual and gathering. I love facilitating both, and have been doing so for several decades.

One of my gifts is creating community, and I now have close to a decade of experience doing it online. For many years, I did these attunements and celebrations via teleconference. Zoom has enhanced our sense of connection and community by adding the ability to see each other as we participate together.

What happens on the call?

This is an energetic and healing session, so the process is not like a workshop or class with exercises. Celebration will begin and end each event. I will begin with opening sacred space. After some information on the cross-quarter festival, I will attune you to the cross-quarter holiday, and I will lead you in a celebration. I will let you know ahead of time what to bring or prepare (for example, I may ask you to have a candle ready to light together).

Next, I will give some information about the astrological event, as well as the challenges and opportunities it brings. We will then dive into the attunement(s) and session, which I will explain as they happen. 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 healing session is devoted to the healing of the planet, with all of us participating through holding space. We will end by completing our celebration together.

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 a while. 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.

Why celebrate these holidays that mark the wheel of the year?

It is more important than ever to celebrate the holidays that connect us with the earth and the earth’s cycles.

We are in the midst of the biggest evolution that humanity (and the earth) has ever experienced.  It’s the end of an astrological processional cycle.  What that means is that we’re moving out of the 2000-year Piscean era and into the next 2000-year Aquarian era.

Cosmologically, the earth’s magnetic field is decreasing at the very same time that we are at the peak of Solar cycle 25, which is bringing a huge number of solar flares and storms.   In space, the earth is moving through a photon belt that is bringing in a huge amount of light. This happens every 12,000 years or so.  Our very DNA is being changed by the light coming in.

There are prophecies about this shift in many different traditions from all over the world.  They say that this is a time of great awakening and evolution.  All of these energies coming from the cosmos are transmuting us and transforming us into homoluminous ones, or light beings, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The light is also bringing leaps in  consciousness and awareness that are accelerating our transformation.

At the same time, the 3-D world is still caught in the old paradigms.  All the unrest, divisions, wars, and polarity are part of the last gasps of the breakdown of the old that has to happen to make way for the new.  We have either been consumed by or overshadowed by the ongoing shifting of most of what we’ve known. The drama itself has our attention.

In the midst of this it’s been hard to see that it’s not all bad:  that even in the midst of very difficult times, there is more going on than meets the eye.

It’s important in times like these to gather in groups of like-hearted people; to share ritual that connects us to each other and to the earth.  Celbrating these holidays reminds us that we are not alone, and that the chaos in the 3-D world is not all there is.

These holidays help us see all of this in the larger context so we can step out of reactivity and then navigate these times with greater grace and ease.

These seasonal holidays draw us back to basics.

  • knot-whiteknot-white
    They connect us with the earth.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    They help you to get grounded and centered.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    They provide the reminder that the drama and the constrictions may be the loudest voices, but they will not have the last word.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    They remind you that everything goes in cycles.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    They remind you that what is causing the most noise and drama is not all there is.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    They help you have hope that this cycle is passing – or almost past – and it’s time to step into the new.

When we attune to the cycles of the earth, we are no longer swept away by the swirling and eruptions on the surface.
We remember we are part of something much larger and greater.

When we attune to the festivals of light, we bring light back into our lives and the lives of others. We shine the light of truth onto the shenanigans of those acting out more hatred and division.

What others have said about attunements

“Powerful,” and “Incredible” are the most-used adjectives I hear from those who write to me after an attunement.

Some of the comments I’ve received about the last celebration, attunement and healing session: “Amazing Session!” “Beautiful and powerful session!”

“Thank you for hosting the attunement. Somehow, I felt I needed to join in this. Over the past couple of weeks, I have experienced low back pain, affecting hips and legs, stiffness, and soreness. I felt the relief in the sacrum, which also relieved the hips and legs. It all went away when the bones balancing happened! I have been able to squat, not all the way, but something I have not been able to do for a long time. I’m hoping this lasts so that I can do more on my yoga practice.” A day later, she wrote, “So good to be able to move without the pain and stiffness!”
Vicki W, Michigan

“That session was so powerful. I literally felt the fear lift off me as soon as you mentioned…. I was carrying so much fear. And it just kept getting better from there. I couldn’t move after – had to integrate and just felt so peaceful.”
Angela S, Massachusetts

“Those in my orbit are noticeably more ‘lighter’ and joyous since the session.”
Casper B, British Columbia

“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., North Carolina

“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

I’d love for you to join me. It’s going to be a warm, open-hearted group, and the transformation is deeply nourishing and supportive.
