Today was the long-awaited solar eclipse in Leo. This is a time of really intense energies that have been felt the world over.
People have been extra-crazy for the past several days, leading up to this cosmic event. Even those who are the calmest and most rational seem to have had their psycho moments - but why?
Every time we have a New Moon or a Full Moon, we have intense energies that affect the planet and all beings who inhabit the planet. Now many people don’t believe this for a minute and while I disagree with them, I also don’t argue with them, because if they’re not ready to understand, it doesn’t matter how logically I explain it... they won’t ‘hear’ the message.
The facts are that the sun and moon greatly affect the earth. The sun causes winds and storms, while the moon affects the tides and currents. Without either... life on earth would not exist. So think about this, if the moon can affect the flow of the oceans, what can it do to a body that is 50-65% fluid? We feel that gravitational pull, whether we recognize it or not. That is why you find all sorts of interesting information in the Farmer’s Almanac about what to do during different cycles of the moon - from planting crops, castrating animals or cutting your hair. It all works, too!
All of the stars and planets around us also participate with their own gravitational pull. They have different distances to earth, based on their own rotation of the sun, and through that, they affect some of the goings-on that happen right here! That’s also how astrologers receive their information, through the ways that other stars/planets/constellations affect this planet and the people who live here. I’m not an astrologer, but I do follow several brilliant ones, and then take the consensus and my own intuition when I write things here.
Now back to the eclipse. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event for those in the United States, where the total eclipse was seen from one side of our country to the other. Most other areas were able to see about 70% of the effect, which is where I fall because of living in Texas.
Being a healer and light worker, I had been thinking about this a lot over the past week. Since this is a major event, what should I do? Should I go outside and watch? Should I stay inside and pray or meditate? Should I join a group online? Should I do a live feed while the eclipse occurs? So many options and I had no idea what would be best.
My ‘peak’ eclipse time was around 1:11 pm today, which I thought was a particularly auspicious time. But... as of this morning, I still had no clue what I should do. As the time grew closer, my mind was spinning, while my head felt like it was going to explode. The pressure was intense, I was nauseated, my back was completely out of alignment and my joints were highly inflamed. I didn’t want to take medications, because I wanted to be 100% clear for this event. That was important to me, besides the fact that I knew that all of these things were caused by the event, so I decided to tough it out.
About an hour before our peak time, I received an email with a link for a guided global meditation, that was to be done at everyone’s respective times. Perfect! So I decided to go into my ‘fairy garden’ for the event. My fairy garden is an area in the back yard that is almost completely covered by the branches of an enormous tree. It’s like being inside a cathedral when you look up inside that tree. It grows like crazy and the branches reach down, as though they are going to completely embrace you. I have lots of plants, a fairy garden and lots of seating under the tree. It’s a beautiful spot with incredible energy, where you always feel a breeze and can hear the wind chimes all the time. It also looks out onto the pastures and a view of over 20 miles, so it’s really nice.
As I stepped through the gate, about 20 minutes before the eclipse, a giant hawk flew out from under the tree. This was amazing, because hawks don’t generally go this low or under these types of trees - they prefer to stay up very high and in the tops of trees, but this hawk was here to deliver the message, that I had made the right choice. As I sat down in one of the chairs, it was getting slightly darker, but the sky only had a few clouds and the hot Texas sun was beating down at about 96 degrees already. I began the guided meditation and it was beautiful. The entire intention of the meditation is to heal the earth and her inhabitants, to fill them with peace and harmony and to create a world where we can all live in peacefully. All during this meditation (about 20 minutes), there was a beautiful soft breeze. I envisioned it as brushing all the hate, anger, and hostilities aside so that we can focus on love. During the eclipse, all was quiet - no birds singing, no cicadas clattering, no cows mooing... nothing. The horses were napping under the trees and the dogs were dead asleep. The cats had earlier been running around psychotically, were also now at peace and my headache and all the pain I had been experiencing... it all went away.
After the meditation, I stayed sitting there, appreciating the blessings that I have and saying a prayer of thanks for them, as well as the blessing of peace that will enfold the world. I know this will happen. Maybe not today, but it will happen soon. I kept getting the feeling that there would be another major event that would bring the entire world together. Kind-of like the Apollo 13 rescue, where everyone was pulling together to save the astronauts. I wasn’t getting that this would be something catastrophic or that people would die, just that it would bring everyone together, and that was a great thing. I sincerely hope and pray that it happens, because we really need it.
But the focus of the day - for me - was about sharing love and light. It is about loving everyone around us - not just those who agree with our philosophies. EVERYONE!
I’ve been so disappointed over the past several months with different lightworkers who are preaching love in one moment, yet encouraging hate with many of their online posts and messages. You can’t have it both ways... you are either teaching one or the other, because together, they cancel each other out. There has been entirely too much division over the past several years, and it’s only getting worse. If we don’t do something to make a change... it will tear all of humanity down, as we will be fighting against each other, regardless of where we live.
The angels have told me (as well as several astrologers) that this time is an opportunity to hit a cosmic reset button. This is our chance to start over - to begin again. I wonder how many of us will take that opportunity and do something to promote significant change in our lives and our world?
You might be asking, “How do I make this change? How do I start over?” Obviously we can’t always change every single thing that is going on in the world or the people who are in power - but we can change our opinions of it, and as we do that, we start changing the energy and the frequency around that person and the situation.
For example: Many people feel very strongly about President Trump. There is a lot of anger, hatred and fear. Just for a moment, think about how you could help change all of this energy to something positive. By simply changing your thoughts and feelings about the person and the situation, you can change the energy and the frequency. You don’t have to like this person, but you can ask God or the Universe to help him make the right decisions for our country. The same goes for leaders of every other country in the world. Even if you don’t like that person, ask that they receive Divine Guidance in their duties and their decisions. Turn it over to God or the Universe. Let go of the hate, anger and fear, because you’re only hurting yourself and those around you. This doesn’t mean that we have to change our opinions about that person - but we are changing our feelings from something negative to something positive and that creates an important shift for each one of us.
Now this goes for political leaders, heads of corporations, your boss, family members, neighbors or acquaintances. Press that reset button and start changing your internal thoughts, feelings and emotions surrounding that person. As that they be healed of whatever is causing their ill behavior. Forgive them for that they may have done to you. Forgive yourself for any part that you have played in the situation. Then pray for a peaceful and loving solution to whatever happens. Does that mean that you have to be best friends with that person now? No! What it does mean is that you are going to stop poisoning yourself with anger and hatred and you are going to start raising your own vibrational frequency higher. In the process, you are going to raise the frequency of those around you and the person that you are praying for. Suddenly... that reset for our planet is within reach and we can create a more beautiful and loving world.
The biggest question that this brings us to is this:
Are you willing to put your ego aside, to ask for Divine Guidance and forgiveness for those people you do not personally like?
That’s what I see as being the big lesson for us all with this eclipse. Are we willing to let go of the ego so we can move forward?
This brings me back to the hawk being in my garden and showing himself as I entered. When you research the meaning behind hawk medicine, you’ll find that the hawk is all about obtaining enlightenment. The hawk holds the key to higher consciousness and his superior eyesight reminds us that we can see the vision for a brighter future, but we must be willing to soar high above the fray, so that we can see the bigger picture, which will enable us to thrive. The hawk reminds us also to see other’s perspective and to look to the wisdom of that insight. Hawk is a powerful spirit animal and I am blessed to have this one with me, but I am doubly blessed that he chose to bring this message to us all today.
