An Online Celebration, Attunement, and Community Healing Session on March 19th
You may have heard about the huge Cosmic Event happening in March. It’s coming up fast — on March 19, 2023.
You may be experiencing the tensions, perhaps even fear, that all the political divisions, hatred, unrest, and climate change have been creating. Truth has been hard to come by. Issues of power are front and center. On the one hand you may feel powerless in the face of all that’s going on. On the other, you feel it’s time to step out and claim, and live into your power.
Even after all this time, it seems like government, big corporations, and billionaires are still ruling the world. You want more shared power. You want more community. You want to find unity and connection in the midst of all of this upheaval.
You may be feeling a strong sense that you are called into something greater, or you want to find your life’s purpose, but you have felt bogged down, contracted, stymied.
You know you want to move forward. You may even feel instinctively that you’re on the cusp of something new, but you’ve still felt constricted or constrained at every turn.
Date: March 19, 2023
Replay: When you register, I will set it up for you to receive the entire session as you listen/watch.
If you’re sensitive to global energies,
you may have felt pressure building around any or all of these issues.
What you’ve been feeling is the build-up to what is happening on March 23rd. And this event is part of a larger cosmic shift happening throughout 2023, and culminating with our planet making its final move into the new astrological age at the beginning of next year.
To give you a sense of the magnitude of these shifts:
🌟 1543: Copernicus published his heleocentric theory, which literally changed how we understand the cosmos. He almost got killed for it too!
👑 1226: The Magna Carta was created in England. It said that people had civil rights and that the monarch must follow the law
⚖ 1293: Edward I established Common Law in Britain
📃 1789: On July 14, 1789, the people stormed the Bastille and did away with the monarch. Just a month later, in August of 1789, the Assembly Nationale published a document laying out the basis for human rights. This document guaranteed freedom and equality before the law, and became the basis of democracy in Europe.
🧑 Power shifts back to the people. Grass-roots up power. Power with instead of power over.
😁 Freedom, civil rights and human rights.
🔬 Huge strides in science and technology.
With so much going on in the world — and a lot more to come — I have been given the very strong guidance to offer this celebration, attunement, and healing session on Sunday, March 19. It will also be powerful preparation for the next 20 years.
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.
On March 19th we will also gather to celebrate, and you will be attuned one of the most powerful Equinoxes of our lifetimes.
The Spring Equinox is traditionally associated with the beginning of the astrological year in Western astrology. This Equinox is associated with the fullness of Spring and new beginnings. These themes are even more important this year in light of Pluto’s shift into Aquarius.
This year’s Equinox is going to be one of the most powerful Equinoxes in our lifetimes. It is bringing in a huge influx of light and energy, which will in turn support you in the big transformations that Pluto in Aquarius is bringing.
This is an opportunity to drink in that light and energy, and to awaken your consciousness even more.
This session will help you:
For healers and service professionals especially:
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.
What is an equinox?
An equinox is one of two days in the year where the amount of daylight and darkness are almost equal no matter where you live on the planet. As I mentioned above, in Western astrology, the vernal (or spring) equinox represents the beginning of the new astrological year. It is a time for celebration and new beginnings.
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. In the midst of the pandemic, there have been very few opportunities to celebrate. The eruptions and volatility – anger and fear-mongering and hate – have been strong.
Eruptions, volatility, volcanoes – are all dramatic. The drama of unfolding events in the past month – even three months – has been overwhelming.
We have either been consumed by or overshadowed by the constrictions, the breakdowns, lockdowns, and 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.
These seasonal holidays draw us back to basics.
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.”
