This week we have a powerful Solstice gateway, providing a new doorway for transformation and progress. Continue reading for a simple process you can do now and throughout the week to take optimal advantage of this doorway.
Solstice is June 20-21 depending on your time zone, but energetically it’s more than one day. Indeed Solstice is a potent gateway occurring over several days and into the weekend of June 24-25.
Think of it as a quantum pause, providing opportunities over several days for you to see yourself more clearly. With more clarity, positive intentions you’ve recently focused on receive an energetic upgrade. This means that your intentions have increased aliveness and more focused direction. This upgrade can make a huge difference in what you are able to manifest!
Keep in mind that this is not an automatic upgrade. You must be present and consciously involved. What you need to do is not complex or difficult. However, your personal action is needed. Below are the steps. It’s recommended that you work with these now, even if you plan to take part in a Solstice-related event this week.
Solstice Gateway Process
The following simple steps can be a guide for making the most of this Solstice gateway. As you work with them, do so with new eyes and be willing to change your mind about specifics. This gateway gives you the opportunity to revamp even current projects. So keep an open mind.
Preliminary steps include centering yourself and inviting the wisdom of your higher self. If desired, have a favorite crystal with you, holding it as you do this process. As you do the process, don’t overthink responses – go with the first ideas that come to you.
The first step, consider the direction of your life. Give yourself some quiet contemplation time to explore your life direction. Get all of your senses involved, visualizing what it looks like and how it feels in your heart. Factor in both practicalities (like your actions and response of other people) and energies (like your energy state and mindset). Create a sentence or two describing your life direction. Example: being energetic and healthy as you apply a sense of adventure and experimentation with new things supportive of your life mission. Know that you can come back to this over the next several days for additions or revisions.
The second step, consider your place in the world. This is more about your role and life mission than it is about a job. As an example, you likely see yourself as a divine changemaker. Invite clarification of what this means on both practical and energetic levels. Create a sentence of two describing your role. Examples: your role may involve modeling heart-centeredness or authenticity. Like with the first step, you can come back to this later.
The third step, consider what needs to shift internally and/or in outer world circumstances. This part relates to inner qualities and belief systems, along with divine timing and situations with others. Examples: you may need to become more positive about results, having more patience before good things fully materialize; the ideal partner you need for expansion to the next level may not become known until after you do more on your own.
The fourth step, consider what is missing from your life. Knowing the answer to this question can be more important than what you discovered in the first three steps. Tip: most likely what’s missing is more a feeling or approach to being than it is a material success or having a romantic partner. Examples: laughter, joy, feelings of self-acceptance, being able to let go, or having persistence when nothing seems to be happening. Whatever is missing on these inner levels cannot be satisfied by career success or by being with a soulmate.
The fifth step, consider your support team. Reminding yourself that you indeed have support is helpful. Visualize the faces of your team, inviting a remembrance of how they assist you in both ordinary and extraordinary ways. Examples: friends and family, business associates, counselors and healing practitioners. Be sure to include the support of spirit, your invisible team of helpers on the inner planes. Daily get in touch with a sense of gratitude for what these people and nonphysical beings bring to your life.
Over the next several days through the weekend, you can come back to this process for updates and more energizing. As you do this, your intentions will have more aliveness and more focused direction. Be prepared for wonderful new developments!
Context for Energy Shifts
In June we will experience a combination of (1) tricky planetary transits likely to stir emotions and (2) helpful alignments for making progress with creative projects and mending fences in troubled relationships. On some days you may feel the effect of both – emotions (yours or other people’s) more on the surface and your finding you have the energy to create positive changes.
Enhance your success potential by being present and mindful. You will thrive by noticing changes in energy or circumstance and responding with divine timing. Sometimes the window for timely action is minutes or even seconds.
Example: you are at a conference and meet someone indirectly connected to your field of interests. You may have only a moment to exchange information before going your separate ways. Trust your intuition. If you get a strong nudge to connect with someone, act on it. You don’t need to have the details of “why” in the moment – just do it.
Most likely you are already sensitive in nature. The energies and events of these times can be quite challenging for sensitives. Keep in mind, though, that you have inner strength and other resources for coping – more than many people around you can access. Remember this in those moments when you feel pushed to the edge. Apply what you know and make an effort to tap your vast inner strength. The more that you do that, in fact, the stronger you become.
As June begins, polarity and division energies continue to catalyze an underlying sense of tension and stress in society. Do your best to be aware of these undercurrents but keep your perspective big picture. With a higher view, you are less likely to feel overwhelmed and more likely to be a calm and conscious voice for constructive changes. This is part of your role, after all, as a divine changemaker.
Energy Dates to Watch
June 9 is a Sagittarius Full Moon. The energies of this Moon can help bring more truths to light and catalyze breakthroughs. A project in development could receive a nice push forward under this influence. Tip: make and energize intentions for your goals at this time.
June 20 is Solstice. This is a change of seasons, but more than that, it’s a powerful energy gateway. The potency of this gateway continues to unfold throughout the week and into the weekend of June 24-25. Tip: use the time period June 20-25 to do inner work, reflection on your next steps, and energizing of your heartfelt dreams.
June 23-24 is a Cancer New Moon. Happening soon after Solstice, this New Moon is a significant moment for catalyzing new starts, updating approaches, and finding new partners. Tip: meditate on what you want to manifest, getting clear about specifics and the connections between things. Be open to the new.
Set Your Own Thrive Bar
June can be a month of opportunities to express your light. Decide now that you will be present and be looking forward, rather than looking backward.
This means that you begin anew daily. See yourself and your life path in a fresh way. Let go of how last month was, or what you have accomplished (or not accomplished) so far this year.
Recognize that you alone determine what it means and how it feels to thrive. Set your own thriving bar. Don’t let the world tell you what it is.
Don’t let others, through comparison, make you feel small or not enough. Simply be your best self each day, one idea and one action at a time. Trust that you are enough even before you make the first step, and take that feeling of confidence into your next steps.
When the state of the world gets you down, remember that love will win as we humans are wired to love.
