Creating a Path to Freedom
During the next couple weeks, until the Solar Eclipse passes, the energy around us is going to feel intense. The good news is the unresolved emotions, or uncomfortable situations, that come to light in our consciousness can be examined and understood. We need to take time to look at the dark side of ourselves and shift it into a consciousness of understanding and freedom. The Solar Eclipse enacts the union of light and shadow, which embodies a deep transformation of all that is a perceived illusion and shows us the truth good or bad.
Because Solar Eclipse's are all about new beginnings and the balance of the yin (passive negative force) and yang (active positive force) we are going to feel where our life is out of balance. If we do not maintain a good balance within us, we get lost in both our drama and other people's drama and life begins to feel out of control. Then the dreaded shoulds, coulds and woulds come up and we become frustrated and feel responsible for everyone and everything.
We are not responsible for other people's happiness. We can only control our reactions to anyone or anything. By raising our awareness and setting priorities on ourselves, then we will naturally focus on our needs and not the needs of others.
So how do we shift this energy? I try to remember knowledge is power. I teach that achieving personal balance ultimately begins with you and where you are placing your focus, regardless of the circumstances, knowing that you have the power to respond from love or fear. In order to stay in balance, we need to stay grounded and focused for a graceful and peaceful transition for the next few weeks.
Those unresolved emotions or uncomfortable situations that need to be cleared from your life have already started to melt away and perhaps you are starting to feel a certain amount of relief. Having an appreciation for the energy of the Solar Eclipse can support us in bringing ourselves back into harmony and in alignment with our truth.
in love and light embrace freedom.
