I learned in my studies with Miguel Angel Vergara, a Maya Shaman, that the actual energy comes in for at least 7 days before and after solstice. Its a powerful time for connecting with the sentient energies on earth and in the beyond. In the past it was believed the veil between realities was thinner, but with the newest energy that humanity can access, there really are no veils in the present.
The consciousness creation group I play with have experienced a mega supercharged, transfiguring energy building up to this solstice. It feels like a new origin place has been created and we are springing from that as new beings carrying with us our highest frequency knowings from original time
Remember that we are still at the beginning of the age, a 26,000 year cycle I wrote of in my book
"From Fear to Eternity: 212 Ways to Let Go of Limiting Beliefs and Shift Your Energy into Higher Consciousness Living" . The Solstice sunrise is rising on the Galactic Cross. We are aligned with the Great Central Sun and some people believe that powerful energy pouring in is assisting us to evolve, transfigure and create the golden age we have longed for.
I invite you to keep this in mind in addition to the usual significance of Summer solstice, when we are at the peak of our annual growth cycle, and living life out loud, the sun energiZing us and our projects. Celebrate your connection with the All That IS, All Your Relations and your 7 billion fellow humans.
