This Summer Solstice arrives early in the morning of Saturday June 21st – at 3:51am Pacific Daylight Time.
This same “moment” occurs at different times around the world – it’s at 4:51am in Santa Fe, New Mexico, at 5:51am in Teotihuacan, Mexico, and at 6:51am on the East Coast. Please do take the time to figure it out for your location.
We’re being exact about this, because the gift this Solstice brings is a big healthy wave of LOVE that is so vibrantly intimate that you’d be crazy not to be present to welcome it!
But before you get all “Awwww! a gift of love!” – let me tell you, this is not that kind of love.
What is arriving is a huge burst of Creation’s ferocious love for Her children, including you! It’s a high mega-watt jolt of primal & powerful wild love combined with a fierce motherly concern for the next steps we take here on Earth.
“She” is coming to us fully illuminated and unveiled. Maybe it’s shocking, but it is part of our growing up, that She is revealing to us that there is, and always has been, a passionate love affair going on between light and dark.
Light and dark are not opposites – they are lovers!
Light reaches out with such tenderness into the dark, and dark holds light with a warm loving and deeply receptive embrace.
A single moment of experiencing this love reconciles differences, gives us a hug, and sends us back out to play – with the ultimate responsibility for the quality of life we co-create with each other directly in our hands, and in our hearts.
For us, here in this post-2012 era, an extension of this gift is a mandate for us to retire the old archetypes of adversarial polar opposition – of light vs. dark, good vs. evil, love vs. fear, love vs. hate, us vs. them, war and peace, and so on. So much more could be said, but now, it is up to you.
We can create Heaven on Earth for ourselves and for others. Starting here and now, right where we are!
Gather your friends and family together in a place of wild beauty – a place where She would enjoy meeting you – and yes, it can be outside in your back yard under the morning stars.
Then, create a simple ceremony to share this with each other – letting everyone become included and comfortable in the moment. If you are by yourself, you are included with all of us!
At the Solstice, open your arms, your hands, your mind, your heart – and simply allow this gift from the One who gives us Life to find you.
A very small group of early risers will gather at the sacred cliffs of Bodega Headlands – and you are invited to join us, in person, or in spirit from where ever you are.
Be at the far Bodega Head parking lot by 3:00am, we’ll walk out to the cliff site at 3:15am. Weather on the coast can be variable – bring layers of clothing, and a flashlight.
Bring something for the altar – herbs, your crystal, and perhaps a small offering of your gratitude to Her.
