The eclipse will occur on Monday, August 21st (
for times depending on where you live). In ancient times, it was believed the gods were angry when the sun was swallowed by some unseen force. Now we know the cause of the eclipse, but do we know what it represents energetically?
I don't know about you, but this summer has been the most energetically intense summer I have experienced in quite a while. I know we are leading into something "really big" on a personal and global level, and how we navigate this, set intention for this, will determine how this eclipse energy is integrated into our lives.
The eclipse will magnify whatever is your energy focus, and bring more of whatever that is into your life.
Very simply, what this means is you will experience what you think. If you are a negative thinker ("I can never get ahead" "No one supports me" "They are wrong, I am right"), the eclipse energy will intensify this thinking and bring you more of the same. If you are a positive thinker ("I know the Universe supports me" "I have abundance in all areas of my life" "I accept others for who they are") then that energy is returned to you with intensity.
We all have programming for negative thinking. What we can do to shift that is catch our thoughts and change them. Between now and Monday, be very mindful of your thoughts. If you find yourself going into negative thinking, stop yourself and say, "I know the Universe supports me and I have abundance in all areas of my life." Even if the world is crashing down around you, say this phrase over and over. Positive thoughts transmute negative thoughts. The trick is to catch yourself and make that shift.
The other thing you can do is help to shift the energy for your fellow earth travelers. After you say, "I know the Universe supports me and I have abundance in all areas of my life," say, "I send love and light to all of Earth's inhabitants." As you do this, imagine light coming from your heart, projecting out the world around you. Envision this light encompassing the entire planet. This really does work, trust me. If you are thinking to yourself, "How can my light help the entire planet? I'm just one little person?" STOP! You are so much more than just "one little person." You are connected to the planet, to everyone else here. Your light does make a difference!
If you have any wishes or desires for your life (new career, new home, new outlook), look at the link above to see when the eclipse will begin in your area. Between now and then, and then also about a half hour prior to the beginning of the eclipse, do the exercise sending light to the planet from your heart center, and then envision this new life for yourself. See it. Feel it. Believe it is possible. Say to yourself, "I know I deserve the best in my life and what is for my highest good." Hold these images in your consciousness as the eclipse occurs. After the eclipse is complete, thank all of your helpers and know you have just shifted the energy in your life!
You ARE love and light! Don't ever forget that!
