On June 21st we hosted a Solstice Divine Feminine and Masculine gathering. The founders and guardians of EcoMaste Amanda and Jose Bermudez have spent the last few months patiently listening to the land that hosts EcoMaste: Healing and Learning Sanctuary. Through spirit and intuition they learned that the land had once been used for ceremonies and rituals between the divine feminine and masculine.
In many cases the microcosm is a reflection of the macrocosm. The collective has been experiencing an imbalance between the masculine and feminine for thousands of years. The masculine has domineered, and the patriarchy has forced matriarchal societies into submission. Abuse, trauma, shame, repression has been experienced and the land EcoMaste resides on is no stranger to this story.
The messages from land and the energies building up to the Solstice with a solar eclipse and the new moon in Cancer were very clear. The land had brought the imbalance into awareness and was asking to re-sanctify what had once been pure. After getting such clarity it was decided to host an event to honor and unite the masculine and feminine, the dark and light, our polarities.
World Changing Energy
The Mega Solar Eclipse was expressing a world changing energy. This energy is leaping us forward into elevating consciousness individually and globally. For the last year and a half we have had the North Node in Cancer. This has put an emphasis on cancerian themes of, opening and healing emotional wounds, relationships to mother, family, home, birthing, manifestation, and the womb. The Eclipse was at an Aries point at 0 degrees of cardinal signs; Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. The cardinal signs call in beginnings, a new chapter. The fact that each element is being represented adds a layer of potency.
The last time this alignment happened was in 2001. Many of us can remember changes that began after September 11th. We now have the opportunity to use what we have learned in the past 19 years of how the divine feminine was embraced, expressed or repressed in this lifetime and lifetimes before. This is an emotional reset and recognition. For those who have done the work it is now time to go further in understanding the root of your feelings, relating to lineage, the women in your life, values, and how you can use the knowledge to gain deeper understanding and progress further on your journey.
Growth is a major theme with Cancer and will be over the next year and half as these energies play out. Both the divine feminine and masculine are asking to receive what they need to be fully expressed time. It is important create personal sacred space so you can honor, listen and step into these aspects completely. It may be helpful to imagine a hermit crab, taking their homes wherever they go, crabs relating to cancer. They remind us to treat our bodies as a vessel, our temple and sacred space. Giving yourself the opportunity to retreat is allowing space to recalibrate and the environment around you to do the same. This spaciousness opens us up to untangling, releasing and finding our way to certain transformation.
Unity Between Polarities
This process is just being birthed so we must be patient and kind with ourselves. Trusting our hearts and building a bridge of clarity from our hearts to our minds. The mind ruled by the masculine, having to do with decision making and action needs to be in alignment with the heart, ruled by the feminine related to feeling and nurturing. If we don't acknowledge how we feel then we can't make proper decisions. When we are overwhelmed by feelings we get stuck and are unable to decide the necessary steps to move forward. Part of the process is to give our overworked aspects time to rest. We can also engage and strengthen our under-utilized or atrophied qualities.
Surrender and Harvest Your Wholeness
We are not alone and there are much bigger things that are playing out within and around us that we can't understand fully. What we can do is trust in the universe and our ability to receive the magic and grace it offers. Cancer is related to the womb of creation. There are multiple energies coming together that can't and shouldn't be controlled. Now is a time of surrender. To welcome the full expression of your divinity so you can receive your hearts deepest desires. Allowing your aspects to work together and also asking others for help along the way. You are worthy to enjoy the harvest of your wholeness.
Embrace the Spectrum of Existence
EcoMaste is committed to encourage people to step into a loving relationship with themselves. We believe that to support this process we must acknowledge, forgive, and embrace our dark and light qualities, the spectrum of existence. It was by no accident that we choose to have a gathering on this sacred day. This was a portal to inception, growth, and receiving the heart's desire. May you take the time to listen deeply to your heart. Release the patterns of disregarding your negative aspects, and discover a new allies and teachers. Use this time wisely and land with a clear intention that resonates to you and what you ready to receive.
Foundation of Energetic Alignment
We are passionate about collaborating with ourselves, the community, and the collective. The foundation starts at an energetic level which is why we have put some much effort into listening and trusting what is being expressed to curate gatherings, workshops, and courses that are in energetic alignment with the land and ourselves.
Rotational Sustainable Gatherings
Our intention is to host conscious, ecological, and culturally impactful gatherings at EcoMaste. One of the avenues of interest is to bring awareness and balance to the divine feminine and masculine. We would like these events to have a rotational essence, meaning the circle facilitators, and event support/ volunteers get the opportunity to try on different roles.
If you have interest in facilitating circles, offering other ceremonies that can be woven into these gatherings, or would like to support/volunteer for a free ticket and accommodation (if rooms are available) we would love to connect and see how we can support one another.
Calling in Local Educators & Wisdom Holders
We are also calling in experienced community members, especially local Ticos that have specific skills, expertise or talents that they would like to share. If you have a workshop or an offering that enriches your life and know that it would enrich the communities please contact us we want to support you and collaborate with our educators and wisdom holders!!
