Vallarta Unites for June 21 Solstice at Los Muertos Pier

June 20, 2015

Puerto Vallarta's Solstice Oceandance will be at 7:30 pm Sunday at Los Muertos Pier with prayers, songs and Aztec dances, and culminating at sunset when we make offerings of flowers to Mother Earth's ocean.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Understanding the power of giving gratitude to Mother Earth for all Her gifts, like Her gentle cooling rains, multi-cultural groups around the world are hosting an unprecedented number of ceremonies this June 21st Solstice. They know that giving Her love and appreciation in solidarity is the most powerful way to heal our Earth Mother and spread Peace.

Puerto Vallarta's Solstice Oceandance will be at 7:30 pm Sunday at Los Muertos Pier culminating at sunset when we make offerings of flowers to Mother Earth's ocean. It will include prayers, songs and joyful friendship circle dances led by Azteca Alex Perez, Father Saul of our Lady of Refuge Church, my co-host Cherokee Phil Kerr and his Mayan healer friends Raymundo Covarrubias Gonzalaz and Blanca Curial, David Tarr, and Gayle Weatherly, an English healer. Everyone is welcome.

The SHIFT Network also coincidentally launched their Summer of Peace June 13 to Sept 13, in collaboration with the Charter of Compassion, with ongoing inspiration by world wisdom keepers. They also have a brilliant multi-cultural plan to joyfully make this the decade that brings in the new dawn.

When I told Gayle that we are doing a Solstice ceremony in solidarity with them and Lakota Chief Arvol Lookinghorse's 20th World Peace and Prayer Day/ Honoring Sacred Sites DayWorld ... in Ashland, Oregon, June 18-21st, she got really excited. She said, "Let me show you something." A few moments later I saw photos from their recent trip to Oregon's sacred Crater Lake.

Said Gayle, "Sue (Kennedy) shot this beautiful sunset, but we didn't see this phenomena until we got back to Vallarta two months later." Her IPAD showed even more distinctly her explanation of "The pink rose circle and ray of the divine feminine energy coming back now, representing Mother Earth, Mother Mary, Mary Magdelaine, our Lady of Guadalupe - all in one.

Gayle added, "The diamond is the Christ Consciousness energy - the divine masculine and the divine feminine energy, which we all have, in balance. This energy started anchoring into pristine places like Crater Lake in 2013, and can be greatly enhanced on this Solstice with our help. It results in hearts that are open and people who stand up and do something when they see a suffering person, animal or ocean or planet, like Jesus exemplified, and many women and more and more men embody."

"See this blue light... it's Archangel Michael helping protect this anchoring, along with Archangel Raphael in the green light. I said, "Wow you can see their great wings. Now we don't have to take everything on faith."

How perfect that we are celebrating our Earth Mother on the Solstice at the same time as launching this summer of peace. I told Gayle, if you stop and think, how many wars have women ever started? When the Goddess Era succumbed to the Patriarchal Era and the churches were only led by men, isn't that when religious wars took hold? And when eight million of our European female ancestors who healed or guided others working with Nature, like Joan of Arc, were taken out of our gene pool in the Inquisition, respect and love for Mother Earth gave way to Her resources becoming a commodity. The Indigenous and the Egyptians, who had strict laws against fouling the water and land, have the longest records of sustainability.

Scientists say that war is also a major cause of global warming as well as poverty. The most male-female balanced peace-loving country is Sweden, and they have the highest humane standard of living and universal health care.

A female wisdom keeper said that this chaos happened so humanity could learn this lesson about balance and now together rise. Giving gratitude and attending these divinely choreographed events are powerful ways to restore that balance and evolve onto the high road to enjoying more Heaven on Earth!

HERE are some inspiring multi-cultural songs to Mother Earth, including a Mexican one for your Solstice. Love song are the key to our Native American Elders-led snow dances that have helped ski areas end droughts starting with the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics at Walt Disney's request.

In February, Phil and Gayle were part of a group who helped lead our whale protection ceremony at the pier for UN's Interfaith Harmony Week's Charter for Compassion, guided by Cherokee PhD, Olivia Ellis. Our energy attracted 10 whales and their babies that jumped for joy and stayed in the purified waters around the pier for an unprecedented three days to the delight of the crowds, said Captain Juan Santana. Mexico's 'UN Compassion Week' Oceandance inspires Whale... Miracle!

We will also give gratitude for that phenomena and the University of Guadalajara's interest in studying this Ancient Wisdom, thanks to Terra Noble's Claudio Rincon since the UN believes it is key to regenerating our oceans and Earth combined with green technology. So with the help of Arturo Ortega, PV's guru of festivals, and Ray Dion of PromovisionPV, Indigevision (VS) is also documenting this ceremony.

We invited Father Saul at the suggestion of my Vallarta Saludable co-founder Carlos Von Hauske, and a 14 year old parishioner who told me she hoped that all the Churches would work with the Indigenous to help heal Mother Earth for all us children. Praying together is not entirely new for Mexicans. We will be honoring Mazatl, whom I recognized as being a revered local Azteca Elder (in the bread section at Wal-Mart). He likely helped inspire this after dancing for Pope John-Paul II 18 years ago. Two years later, at the turn of the Millennium, the pontiff apologized to the Indigenous of the Americas and Women, and then became a Saint.

Come join us at the pier - bring flowers. Or celebrate the Solstice like NY's Time Square with a yogathon, Seattle with a bicycle race, or if you just need a friend. As Jesus said, "Where two or more are gathered..." and that includes on the phone. Or give a hand to those in the front line, like our team at The Earth and Her weather around you will also be blessed according to the laws of karma!
