Solstice Reading ~ Part Two ~ for the collective energy field


Greetings again…

During the Solstice event, we were assisted by several beings of light working from the “other side” to bring about a release and healing for the collective energy field shared by us all (the morphic field), including a group who identified themselves as the “Shamanic Council” guiding the Inuit people of the northern polar regions, via the shamanic elders of the communities.

The work done for participants was mirrored by the work done for the planet as a whole, and despite the range of time periods and situations where old “stuff” was cleared for participants and for the planet, it could be said that the main theme of the Solstice event was the strengthening of the following inherent qualities for both participants and for the morphic field as a whole:

The ability to:

  • feel really protected
  • be “easy-going”
  • live in a prudent way
  • feel really clean inside and outside (not tarnished by one’s experiences and the experiences of previous generations)
  • experience a feeling of freedom and to flow like the wind

A brief synopsis of information which came up for the collective energy field of the planet is shown below, a summary of the steps which were repeated three or more times during the treatment process, and which came up for both the 208 participants as well as the collective morphic field shared by all.

For all the details, it’s recommended that you look at Part 2 of the report itself, together with related info which will help to understand the report, and a glossary of some of the terms which are mentioned in Part Two.

The documents can be accessed online from the links below, at Google Docs :

Glossary of terms used in Part Two

The information in Part Two is very detailed for research purposes, but all the main points are highlighted and in bold text, so it is very easy to get the gist of the report by scanning down the pages and reading just what stands out.

A brief synopsis of Part Two of the Participants’ Report

Specific information about what was being shifted energetically for the collective morphic field was received for the energy fields described below. While other areas/aspects of the collective consciousness were also worked with, no information was received about those steps. Info came up about the following:

The collective consciousness of…

  • All – the Earth and the energy field beyond our planet
  • The Earth as a whole – included the clearing of old programming going back to the period from 1257 – 1454
  • The Middle East
  • Palestine – included the channelling of healing energy by Archangel Raphael
  • The USA – included the clearing of old programming going back to the period from 1957 – 1963 (the Vietnam era)
  • Europe – included the clearing of old programming going back to the period from 1158 – 1457
  • South Africa (particularly the relationship of the collective consciousness to Xenophobia) -included the channelling of healing energy by Saint Francis of Assisi and the clearing of old programming going back to the period from 1657 – 1763
  • Germany (particularly the relationship of the collective consciousness to Zionism and Israel) – included the clearing of suppressed emotions going back to the period from 1937 – 1943

The relationship between the collective consciousness and…

  • War crimes – included the clearing of old programming going back to the period from 1947 – 1963
  • World food shortages, rising costs of staple foods and increase in starvation – included the clearing of suppressed emotions going back to the period from 1152 – 1557
  • Globalisation

Steps which came up repeatedly for participants as well as the collective morphic field, at least 3 times during the treatment process on June 20:

On a physical level:

  • the physical body as a whole
  • the perineum area (seat of the Base chakra)
  • premenstrual tension
  • the production of neurotransmitters in the brain
  • the effects of stress
  • old scar tissue on a physical level, as well as “old scarring” on other levels

Chakras:

  • Solar Plexus
  • Heart
  • Throat
  • Brow (third eye)
  • 10th chakra

Subtle bodies:

  • the Spiritual body
  • the Ketheric (3rd causal) body

Other:

  • perception – the way we perceive ourselves and the world
  • the harmony between the physical and subtle bodies
  • the harmony between the outer layers of the energy field (known as the causal bodies)
  • healing energy was channelled in by a collective of beings of light who serve as a “Shamanic Council”, the group of spirit guides assisting the Inuit people of the northern polar regions (more info in Part 2)
  • steps for harmonising and stabilising the energy field
  • old programming was cleared on a collective level (going back to various eras, particularly the Middle Ages and the period around the Second World War), which has been affecting most of us to some extent.

The clearing of issues, challenges, fears etc. related to certain collective areas or aspects of life included:

  • perceptions of stature
  • sense of protection
  • relationship with what has been inherited from previous generations
  • how stereotyping is dealt with
  • relationship with doctors, hospitals and the medical profession
  • ability to cope with rejection
  • relationship with the healing of the planet
  • perceptions about generosity
  • attitudes towards fidelity or being faithful (to ourselves)
  • attitudes to pregnancy
  • relationship with the changing magnetic field of the planet
  • perceptions about girth (unwanted weight gain)

Suppressed emotions/tendencies related to collective history, which were cleared collectively included:

  • experiencing fear when we sense the presence of our own guides and guardian angels
  • being preoccupied with the past
  • being low in morale (or demoralised)
  • being invasive in our dealings with others
  • feeling as though we are regarded by others as being ‘expendable’
  • feeling as though one is in need of generosity from others
  • lacking gentleness in our dealings with others
  • feeling paralysed, unable to move
  • having issues with others not knowing about (something)
  • lacking humour
  • regarding others as being “obsessed”
  • regarding others as being “parasitic”

Positive inherent qualities being strengthened or reactivated for participants by the clearing of “old stuff” included:

The ability to:

  • feel really protected
  • be “easy-going”
  • live in a prudent way
  • feel really clean inside and outside (not tarnished by one’s experiences and the experiences previous generations)
  • experience a feeling of freedom and to flow like the wind

Solstice News…

Greetings from Edna, and I hope you had a wonderful Solstice!
 
Have a look at the magnificent crop circle above, discovered in a Wiltshire field on Solstice morning, 20 June, the latest in the UK crop circle season, which began in mid-April (photograph by Lucy Pringle). For amazing up-to-date information on the crop circles as they appear, go to the Crop Circle Connector.
 
It was an honour for me to facilitate the planetary distant healing event for 208 participants around the world on Solstice 20 June, with the assistance of five surrogates on different continents, anchoring the incoming healing energy and releasing unneeded and disharmonic energies on behalf of the collective energy field of the planet as a whole.
 
Since the event last Friday, many of the partipants have sent in feedback about their experiences during and after the event, which can be read at this link.
 
For days before the event, and especially over the Full Moon of 18 June which preceded the Solstice, I felt very energised and needed hardly any sleep, and this continued for days afterwards as well. To read some feedback from me and the five surrogates, please go to this link

The Solstice distant healing treatment…

During the treatment process, there were some steps for all the participants, some for just the animals who were included, some for the children, some for the women participants, and some for all the men who participated.
 
A lot of work was also done for the collective energy field of the planet as a whole (including the clearing of some “old programming” going back hundreds of years) and there was an emphasis on the release of dissonant energies related to the effect of war c rimes on the collective energy field.
 
I will be posting more detailed info about what came up in the event on the Earth Heal Blog in the next few days. For now, just to mention that during this event there was some emphasis on working to clear disharmonic energies for the following countries: South Africa (especially related to the recent explosion of xenophobia), Palestine, Germany and the USA.
 
It’s always a surprise to me to see what actually comes up in a treatment, despite the planetary issues I may be personally concerned about at the time, as an individual human being. During these events, the ethic guiding us is that we cannot attempt to “play God” when facilitating planetary healing work, or make decisions as logical human beings about what aspects of the planet to focus on, which countries and so on. All planetary work is undertaken step by step, only according to the guidance received during the treatment process from the collective Higher Self (the morphic field of the planet as a whole), and the beings of light who work with us.
 
You are also invited to join us for the Mayan Day Out of Time distant healing event happening on 25 July. More info will be posted here soon.

The Strawberry Full Moon

 Full Moon
18 June
 
Today is Full Moon at 17:30 (5:30 p.m.) GMT/Universal Time.
 
That’s 6.30 pm in London and 12:30 p.m. Central Time in North America, where the moon turns full during the daylight hours today. Typically, the full moon rises around sunset. However, at mid-northern latitudes in North America today, the moon will rise about half an hour after sunset. Refer to this almanac page to find links to the moonrise time in your local sky.
 
Here on the north-east coast of in Brazil just south of the Equator, the moon rose around the same time as sunset at 5.30 pm, and even though it is the rainy winter season, the skies were clear and the air was warm and balmy down at the beach in Praia do Frances, and the rising full moon was gigantic and a beautiful creamy yellow.

The Strawberry Full Moon – a true Blue Moon

Today’s June full moon is the fourth of four full moons to fall between the March 21th equinox and the June 20th solstice. Normally, there are only three full moons in one season, and the fourth of four full moons to fall in one season is correctly called a blue moon, quite different to the popular modern belief that the blue moon refers to the second of two full moons to occur in the same calendar month.

Historically the Native Americans who lived in North America kept track of the seasons by giving distinctive names to the recurring full Moons. Each full Moon name was applied to the entire month in which it occurred. These names, and some variations, were used by the Algonquin tribes from New England to Lake Superior.
 
The Algonquin tribes knew this Moon as a time to gather ripening strawberries and named it the Strawberry Moon, a name which was universal to every Algonquin tribe. Because the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during the month of June, the full Moon that occurs during that month was christened for the strawberry! In Europe the June full moon was known as the Rose Moon.
 
Some info from the Aboriginal Cree initiative, based in Ontario, Canada:

Thirteen Grandmother Moon Teachings:

June – Strawberry Moon

The sixth moon of Creation is Strawberry Moon. The medicine of the strawberry is reconciliation. It was during this moon cycle that communities usually held their annual feasts, welcoming everyone home, regardless of their differences over the past year, letting go of judgment and/or self-righteousness.

In Earth & Sky, Bruce McClure explains how like every full moon, the full moon of the month of June has its own special quality. In June, the full moon travels low as seen from the northern hemisphere. It mimics the path of the December sun across the sky, and is this month especially low for those living in the northern hemisphere, because it comes so near the solstice.
 
As seen from both the northern and southern hemispheres, the moon – like the December solstice sun – will rise far south of due east and set far south of due west. North of the Arctic Circle, tonight’s moon – like the winter sun – will be too far south to climb above the horizon.
 
Meanwhile, in the southern hemisphere, where it’s winter now, tonight’s moon will mimic the summer sun, arcing high in the heavens. South of the Antarctic Circle, the moon will simulate the midnight sun – up around the clock.

Preparing for the Solstice on Friday

Use the abundant energy of the full moon to create a clear picture for yourself of how you would like to see your life unfolding during and after this significant period.
 
Whether or not you are joining us for this event and have sent us a focus to “put out there” for you before the start of the treatment process on Friday, it is very beneficial to write down for yourself any health issues or areas of your life where there is a need for the clearing of old energies no longer needed, and the manifestation of another reality. Try to take time over the next couple of days to consciously visualize the manifestation of your reality exactly as though it has already unfolded in the way you would like to see it manifest, for the highest good of all. This will add a lot of power to the efficacy of the Solstice energies for each of us.

Astrological aspects at this time

The astrologer, Mary MacLean, emphasises that the Mercury retrograde and the position of Pluto in the sky adds a certain spice to the way we will experience this full moon:

The Full Moon is in Sagittarius at 27 degrees. Pluto is where? 29 degrees of Sagittarius…..hmmmmm….I expect this to be intense and a direct result of the last 6 months. (I bet you thought I was going to say the last 2 weeks.) The last time Pluto was at 29 degrees was January. Think back, what was challenging you during this period? Well, it’s here now in all its pagan power. Wherever the Full Moon lands in your chart , there will be a change in your everyday life: a change you will have to get used to and a change that lies heavily on your consciousness. It will be interesting to follow the time line of past events to see if they coincide with current transits. Mercury is retrograde and continues to enforce the rule of “always read the fine print”. By June 19th Mercury will be at 13 degrees of Gemini starting its direct motion. What has been going on for the last week is a combination of New Moon in Gemini and Mercury retro at the same exact degree of 13 degrees. You will notice that you have made some important decisions and the results will be forthcoming after July 4, 2008. By the end of the month four major planets will be retrograde. This promises to be very eventful.

June Solstice
 
The June Solstice is referred to as the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere and the winter solstice in the southern hemisphere. At this time, the sun is at its furthest point from the equator – it reaches its northernmost point at 23:59 GMT/UT on June 20, when the earth’s north pole is tilting directly towards the sun.
And although the moment of Solstice occurs only one minute before midnight GMT/UT, it still places this year’s Solstice on June 20, and is the first time since the year 1896 that the June solstice has occurred before June 21. 2008 is a leap year, and without that extra day in February, this year’s June solstice would have fallen on June 21. From this date forward, all leap years for the rest of the 21st century will feature June 20 solstices.
 
The June solstice is also known as the northern solstice because it occurs when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer in the northern hemisphere.This day has the longest hours of daylight for those living north of the Tropic of Cancer. The “midnight sun” remains visible throughout the night to the north of the Arctic Circle, while those who live south of the southern Arctic Circle will not see sun at all during this time of the year.
 
“Solstice” is derived from two Latin words: “sol” meaning sun, and “sistere,” meaning “to cause to stand still”. This is because, as the solstice approaches, the noonday sun rises higher and higher in the sky on each successive day. On the day of the solstice, it seems to stop rising altogether (in fact, it does rise slightly, but only an imperceptible amount), compared to the day before. In this sense, it “stands still.”
 
Astrological configurations during this period
 
The Solstice will be preceded by a Full moon on 18 June, when Venus/Sun opposes Pluto/Moon, and Uranus forms a wide T-square to this potent opposition. According to Barbara Hand Clow, this configuration suggests “great tectonic and possibly financial stress around the planet:

“…the New Moons are in perigee (closest to the Earth) on May 5, June 3, July 2, November 12, and December 12. This means there is greater tectonic stress and unusual weather patterns, which was the case during May. The tidal flows in the Pacific were very extreme in May, which intensified human emotions as well as water flow.

During the June 18 Full Moon, Mars in Leo is on the lunar South Node in close opposition to Chiron on the lunar North Node. This suggests violence, pain, and wounding, but it also suggests a great heart opening. I hope these energies can be worked out through love and compassion.

Jupiter sextiling Uranus still forms a Yod to the South Node, but this time Mars is also on the South Node. This is a very interesting configuration that could result in a significant peace somewhere on the planet….perhaps countries will just lay down their arms, which is more likely than usual with Chiron right on the lunar North Node for months. We shall see. Be sure to watch what is going on during this fiery Full Moon in Sagittarius with Pluto on the Galactic Center! And remember to check Astroflash for the Summer Solstice reading around June 18.”

An astrological ephemeris of important aspects for the year 2008 can be seen at this link on Astroprofile. It’s particularly interesting to look at what was happening in the skies during three “hot spot” periods between the Equinox of March 21 and Solstice on June 20: March 27 to April 2, May 2 – 11, and June 13 – 16.
 
Some of the major astrological aspects at this time
 
June 18
Full Moon
 
The farsighted Sagittarius moon energy is directed toward solitude and freedom of movement. The inquisitive Gemini sun energy is directed toward interacting with other people. The best use of this full moon is to focus on helping others, teaching them what you have learned, and to understand the need for balance between social interaction and your private life.
 
This could be a very intense period, since many planets are opposing or nearly opposing Puto. This would be a good day to visualize peace anad harmony spreading through the world. This can be done up to two days before a full moon. Colors: purple for Sagittarius, yellow for Gemini.
 
June 19
Mercury goes direct (Rx since May 26)
 
Whew! The time for re-examining old commitments and previous projects is at an end. Move forward with new plans, new projects.
 
June 20
Sun opposes Pluto
 
The negative side of Pluto is always associated with manipulation, domination, and deceit. The positive use of Pluto’s energy is to clear your house (both your physical and spiritual one), getting rid of ideas, relationships, and behaviors that no longer work. Use today’s energy to meditate on how you can be more cooperative with others, and to release your desire to control others. Since both the sun and Pluto are in mutable signs (Gemini and Sagittarius), flexibility and the related themes of unpredictability and fickleness are key issues.
 
June 20
Summer Solstice – Sun enters Cancer
 
In the northern hemisphere, where the sun is at its most potent today, the longest day of the year is celebrated; in the southern hemisphere, the sun is at its weakest point, and it is the shortest day and longest night of the year which is celebrated, when the pendulum turns and the days start getting longer from that moment on (the return of the light).
 
June 21
Mars opposes Neptune
 
Mars represents enerrgy and aggression, while Neptune represents intuition, idealism, but also deceit. The opposition shows a conflict between those energies. An opposition can be seen as a type of balance, though, so use the energy today to find balance between rest and activity, between directness and subtlety, between selfishness and compassion. 
 
The significance of Solstice
 
Ancient cultures always celebrated the Solstices and Equinoxes as particularly sacred days of the year. The solstice is a time to recall the reverence and understanding that the ancient people had for the sky. Some 5,000 years ago, huge stones were placed in a circle on a broad plain now known as Stonehenge in England and were aligned with the moment of sunrise on June solstice (more info below).
 
We may never comprehend the full significance of Stonehenge, but we do know that knowledge of this sort wasn’t isolated to just one part of the world. Around the same time Stonehenge was being constructed in England, two great pyramids and then the Sphinx were built on Egyptian sands. If you were to stand at the Sphinx on sunset of June solstice and gaze toward the two pyramids, you’d see the sun set exactly between them.
 
From the Encyclopedia of the Unusual and Unexplained – Places of Mystery and Power:

“The Sphinx at Giza faces due east and is referred to in some Egyptian hieroglyphics as Hamachis, the god of the rising Sun. Later, Hamachis evolved into the name Hor-em-Akhet. The akhet is an Egyptian hieroglyph in the image of two triangles, both open at the base, connected by a line, which represents where the sun rises and sets—an image that comes to life when looking out from the Sphinx to the pyramids of Cheops and Cephren at sunset on the summer solstice. As the Sun sets between the pyramids, it highlights the image of two triangles (the pyramids) connected by a line (the earth).”

Awed by the great power of the sun, civilizations in the northern areas have for centuries celebrated the Summer Solstice, also known as Midsummer (as depicted in Midsummer Nights Dream by Shakespeare):

Prehistoric Europe: Many remains of ancient stone structures can be found throughout Europe. Some date back many millennia BCE. Many appear to have religious/astronomical purposes; others are burial tombs. These structures were built before writing was developed, and one can only speculate on the significance of the summer solstice to the builders. Perhaps the most famous of these structures is Stonehenge, a megalith monument on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire. It was built in three stages, between circa 3000 and 1500 BCE. “… the main axis is aligned on the midsummer sunrise–an orientation that was probably for ritual rather than scientific purposes. Four “station stones” within the monument form a rectangle whose shorter side also points in the direction of the midsummer sunrise.

The ancient Germanic, Slav and Celtic tribes in Europe celebrated with dancing and bonfires to help increase the sun’s energy. “It was the night of fire festivals and of love magic, of love oracles and divination. It had to do with lovers and predictions, when pairs of lovers would jump through the luck-bringing flames…” It was believed that the crops would grow as high as the couples were able to jump. Through the fire’s power, “…maidens would find out about their future husband, and spirits and demons were banished.” Another function of bonfires was to generate sympathetic magic: giving a boost to the sun’s energy so that it would remain potent throughout the rest of the growing season and guarantee a plentiful harvest.

The Druids: Perhaps the most enduring modern ties with Summer Solstice were the Druids’ celebration of the day as the “wedding of Heaven and Earth”, resulting in the present day belief of a “lucky” wedding in June. Known as Alban Heruin, it was midway between the spring Equinox (Alban Eiler; “Light of the Earth”) and the fall Equinox (Alban Elfed; “Light of the Water”). “This midsummer festival celebrates the apex of Light, sometimes symbolized in the crowning of the Oak King, God of the waxing year. At his crowning, the Oak King falls to his darker aspect, the Holly King, God of the waning year…” The days following Alban Heruin form the waning part of the year because the days become shorter.

In ancient Rome, the festival of Vestalia lasted from June 7 – 15, and was held in honor of the Roman Goddess of the hearth, Vesta. Married women were able to enter the shrine of Vesta during the festival. At other times of the year, only the vestal virgins were permitted inside.

The Essenes: This was a Jewish religious group active in Palestine during the 1st century CE. Archaeologists have found that the largest room of the ruins at Qumran (location of the Dead Sea Scrolls) appears to be a sun temple. At the time of the summer solstice, the rays of the setting sun shine at 286 degrees along the building’s longitudinal axis, and illuminate the eastern wall. The room is oriented at exactly the same angle as the Egyptian shrines dedicated to the sun. Two ancient authorities — the historian Josephus and the philosopher Filon of Alexandria — had written that the Essenes were sun worshippers. Until recently, their opinion had been rejected by modern historians.

In Ancient Gaul, the Midsummer celebration was called Feast of Epona, named after a mare goddess who personified fertility, sovereignty and agriculture. She was portrayed as a woman riding a mare.

In ancient Sweden, a Midsummer tree was set up and decorated in each town. The villagers danced around it. Women and girls would customarily bathed in the local river. This was a magical ritual, intended to bring rain for the crops.
 
In Ancient China, their summer solstice ceremony celebrated the earth, the feminine, and the yin forces. It complemented the winter solstice which celebrated the heavens, masculinity and yang forces. The Chinese marked the day by honoring Li, the Chinese Goddess of Light. 
 
Neopaganism: This is a group of religions which honour ancient Pagan religions. Of these, Wicca is the most common; it is loosely based partly on ancient Celtic beliefs and practices. Wiccans recognize eight seasonal days of celebration. Four are minor sabbats and occur at the two solstices and the two equinoxes. The other are major sabbats which happen approximately halfway between an equinox and solstice. The summer solstice sabbat is often called Midsummer or Litha. Wiccans may celebrate the sabbat on the evening before, at sunrise on the morning of the solstice, or at the exact time of the astronomical event. “Midsummer is the time when the sun reaches the peak of its power, the earth is green and holds the promise of a bountiful harvest. The Mother Goddess is viewed as heavily pregnant, and the God is at the apex of his manhood and is honored in his guise as the supreme sun.” It is a time for divination and healing rituals. Divining rods and wands are traditionally cut at this time.
 
Catholic and Nordic Protestant cultures, including Brazil, still celebrate the feast of St. John from June 23 to June 24 (see St. John’s Eve, Ivan Kupala Day (celebrated in Russia) and Midsummer). In Brazil he is called Sao Joao, and there are plenty of festivities, with a focus on the harvesting of the corn, which is one of the staples of this region, and dancing the “quadrille”. 
 
Native Americans:
The Natchez tribe in the southern U.S. worshiped the sun and believed that their ruler was descended from him. Every summer they held a first fruits ceremony.” Nobody was allowed to harvest the corn until after the feast.
 
Males in the Hopi tribe dressed up as Kachinas – the dancing spirits of rain and fertility who were messengers between humanity and the Gods. At Midsummer, the Kachinas were believed to leave the villages to spend the next six months in the mountains, where they were believed to visit the dead underground and hold ceremonies on their behalf.
 
Native Americans have created countless stone structures linked to equinoxes and solstices. Many are still standing. One was called Calendar One by its modern-day discoverer. It is in a natural amphitheatre of about 20 acres in size in Vermont. From a stone enclosure in the center of the bowl, one can see a number of vertical rocks and other markers around the edge of the bowl “At the summer solstice, the sun rose at the southern peak of the east ridge and set at a notch at the southern end of the west ridge.” The winter solstice and the equinoxes were similarly marked. The Bighorn Medicine Wheel west of Sheridan, WY is perhaps the most famous of the 40 or more similar “wheels” on the high plains area of the Rocky Mountains. Most are located in Canada. At Bighorn, the center of a small cairn, that is external to the main wheel, lines up with the center of the wheel and the sun rising at the summer solstice.
 
Today, the day is still celebrated around the world, most notably in England at Stonehenge and Avebury, where thousands still gather towelcome the sunrise on the June Solstice. Pagan spirit gatherings or festivals are also common in June, when groups gather to light a sacred fire, and stay up all night to welcome the dawn.
 
General info about the distant healing event
 
During the treatment process, each participant will be worked on individually and as part of the group, and will assist the planetary healing by anchoring the healing energy in their part of the world, and releasing disharmonic energies no longer needed, on an individual and collective level.
 
For those who have never before experienced vibrational healing work, this is the ideal opportunity. We use a cutting-edge approach known as Synchronization Harmonics, and participation is open on a donation basis to anyone, anywhere in the world.
 
Or you may choose to take advantage of Earth Heal annual membership at a nominal fee, to be included as a participant in group remote events to be held on the Solstices and Equinoxes, as well as other significant dates, over the next year, and receive a discount on private treatments arranged with Edna Spennato during the year.
 
For info about annual membership, please go to this link, or send us an e-mail with the subject line, “More info about membership please”.
 
Feedback from participants and detailed reports about what came up during the treatment for the group as a whole, and for the collective consciousness on a planetary level, are sent out to all participants after each remote group healing event.
 
New participants will need to get their details and pics to us via e-mail before the event, so if you are interested in taking part, please check the links below ASAP for info on how to be included, or send your e-mail to us soon, to receive the info.
