I wanted to take a moment to write something on the eve of a momentous energetic event, the solar eclipse. I am here in Wyoming in a big log cabin with all of my siblings and their spouses (a rare gathering of us all!) and with other extended family... Feeling truly blessed in a communal space.
Many of us will be tapping into the energy of this transformative energetic solar event tomorrow, Monday August 21st, for light work meditation at 11:11 am PDT (check your time zone for this here), along with many others around the world. Here's the details for the mass meditation: https://www.facebook.com/events/797347177093531/.
I also uncovered a powerful technique called "recapitulation," used in shamanic work, to work through and release past life experiences/events that we wish to let go of before the eclipse. Going into the scene and letting go of the story through visualization and breath. You then see this experience as something that happened, but not necessarily to you! This is important because our brains subconsciously create a false story about something that happened to us, and often we end up re-creating similar scenarios (negative, often) because our Ego self believes that it is us. But these stories are not who we are! And we can let them go. It takes time and doing this work, many, many times, but over days/months/years it can get easier.
When I did this, I chose to add some phrases on the exhale/releasing that worked for me - choose some that you resonate with (I personally like "I release this story from my life. I am letting go of this. This is no longer me"). After each inhale/exhale, I then chose a new phrase to create a new positive intent, you might choose to do the same. The goal is to view this past experience as something that happened, but not to you. Just observing it and noticing it, having it no longer affect your life!
For instance, here's an example. Notice what you'd like to let go of in your life. If you're releasing a past experience in which you felt/were attacked by others, do this "past scene sweep." First go into a quiet, space (under a warm blanket or in a closet!) to compress your energy. Quiet your mind and relax. Then,
1) Inhale the past scene that you experienced (fully reliving the colors, sounds, smells, people, etc.) , moving your head from left to right slowly
2) When your head is all the way to the right, exhale and slowly move your head back to the left while mentally repeating phrases like "I release this story from my life. I am letting go of this. This is no longer me."
3) When your head is fully back to the left, do a final inhale and exhale to fully release.
4) Repeat as many times until you feel you have released this scene/story from your body and heart (for now at least!).
5) Bring your head back to center and invite a new intention by mentally repeating "I am safe now. I am protected by many who love me. It is safe for me to [do intuitive work/leave my job/start a business/do whatever it is you wish to do]."
6) Repeat a new scene-sweeping/releasing if any new feeling/past experience/limiting belief is surfacing..
And then tomorrow, on the day of this magical energetic solar event, here's an idea for a specific meditation to raise the frequency of love that we so badly need right about now:
1. Use your own technique to bring you to a relaxed state of consciousness.
2. State your intent to use this meditation as a tool to speed up the process of bringing harmony and unity for planet Earth and its inhabitants.
3. Visualize a pillar of Light emanating from the Galactic Central Sun, then going through all beings of Light inside our Solar System, through the eclipsed Sun and the Moon and then through your body to the center of the Earth. Visualize another pillar of Light rising from the center of the Earth, then up through your body and upwards into the sky towards all beings of Light in our Solar System and our galaxy. You are now sitting in two pillars of Light, the Light flowing both upwards and downwards simultaneously. Keep these pillars of Light active for a few minutes.
4. Now visualize a soft pink healing divine feminine energy, healing all people of the planet of their past traumas, bringing peace, harmony, understanding, abundance and unity. Visualize this soft pink light healing the minds and hearts of all people worldwide. See all Lightworkers, Lightwarriors and Truthers working in unity for the creation of the New Earth. See the people of Earth celebrating and joyfully participating in the creation of our new reality where everyone can obtain what they need and freely choose to live as they desire.
Wishing us transformation, healing, freedom and a lifting of the darkness to make way for the light on our planet.
With love to you all,
