Eclipse Energy, Letting go and Creating
The eclipse was a beautiful experience for myself and my sacred circle of goddess who joined in the celebration and intention of the day.
Four of us made an altar space by the waterfall behind the Yoga 4 Love Studio Cabin, and we wrote out what we were letting go of on a piece of paper. We started a ceremonial fire and then in perfect timing as the eclipse was in its fullest view, we threw in the paper as we called out what we were letting go of. After that we called in what we are creating on a paper, then voiced it and threw it in the fire. We had special glasses and spent time in meditation in Prada Mudra with Victory arms and chanted the Maha Mrytajaya mantra for the great remover of Death. We floated the river with the glasses watching the eclipse ebb and felt the temperature change, as the sun came back in full view.
Later in the evening I invited students and trainees to join in a meditation and yoga class, and we all set up around the sacred fire. It was out and cold, and we laid the altar upon it. We all set our intention and then utilized PRana Mudra with Victory arms, like my teacher Shiva Rea taught.
We moved through a gentle flow, and then all voiced what we are letting go of. We then voiced what we are creating in one word and drew a card for the color that the Universe was speaking to us.
The day was so memorable and I feel a dramatic shift in my energy and intentions.
Some people were determined to be in a place where you can see and witness the totality and many simply wanted to be in its energy or see a partial view. It really does not matter energetically, only psychologically. My son was in South Carolina, as he is in the Navy, and they got the day off! (That is HUGE) He said although it was overcast and storm came through, the storm stopped right at totality and the night insects and animals started chirping!
This is definitely a time to honor a marker of huge change and the agent of a massive reset. It is like a reboot of your computer, for everyone in the US in the path!!
Be aware of this new energy and there is still time to list what you are resetting and letting go of. Do something that symbolizes coming into a still point, an unplugging, a dropping into the void.
Acknowledge the absence of the sun and solar energy as it is eclipsed from the earth for those few moments. This is literally symbolizing the absence of what has been feeding old patterns and beliefs for you these past years and maybe your whole lifetime!!!
As the eclipse recedes and the sun comes back, imagine that it is feeding and nourishing and energizing a new you, one that has been reset to a new vibration, a new consciousness, a new frequency.
This alignment is of the Sun, Moon and precious Earth and is a New Moon! Leo, the Lion, the King, rules the New Moon cycle so powerfully aligned with a Total Solar Eclipse. Leo is your power, your purpose, and your joy in creating your life from your essence, your heart. The Sun at the center of our solar system is our source of life and rules only one sign ~ Leo.
Profound release is being experienced by many. We are such creatures of habit and we don’t surrender the familiar easily. Others find themselves birthing the children of their creativity or realizing how they create their own lives. Although Leo is our most regal, authoritative, kingly/queenly part of our self, it also rules the fifth house of the zodiac, the house of children and hence our playful, creating, pleasure-loving selves, the risk taking and generous, loving part of our natures. Investments, speculation, the Big Gamble also fall under Leo’s rulership – win big/lose big or you have to risk in order to gain – that’s Leo’s way. Pour some flamboyant on it and have some fun. Do it because you enjoy it.
