WHY IS THE ECLIPSE IMPORTANT?
SHOULD I BE WATCHING OR NESTING?
There has been much discussion leading up to today’s solar eclipse.
“How exciting is it to witness a full solar eclipse??”
That was my thought process upon first learning the news. As a child I had always longed to experience such a sight. How incredible to witness this galactic occurrence! However, since word got out about the eclipse, I have come across a few articles suggesting why we may want to skip “sight-seeing” this afternoon..
Chances are, if you are reading this, you are familiar with the energies that surround us that are not visible to the naked eye. Some might call it the Collective Consciousness, others would label it as the culmination of all life, etc etc. Keeping energy in mind, it is important to take into consideration the effects the Eclipse could have on us. Individually and collectively.
As I read through these articles I felt challenged. Why are so many practitioners respectably suggesting I avoid the light? (Or lack there of, I suppose.) After much contemplation over today’s happening, I realized something about myself in relation. No matter how long I have waited for this day, I had been fighting the decision to stay away from the sun and moon’s rays.
Why is that? Why do I find it so difficult to just listen to the message the universe is sending out to me and simply live in harmony with it? As Ayurvedic practitioners have mentioned, the rays emitted in today’s Eclipse are potentially critical to our bodies and minds; not only on a physical level, but on a metaphysical level as well. During eclipses, earth’s inhabitants instinctively gravitate towards a subtle and minimal routine. Fasting, sleeping more and taking the time to care for themselves more deeply is a natural way for animal and plant life to thrive in these times. However for humans, things play out differently. We are so fixated on seeing such a sight, and seem so [collectively] out of touch with the reality and these energies, that we have begun to neglect what truly matters — ourselves.
So today, I will be turning inward. I have made the difficult, yet conscious, decision to focus on the betterment of my body and soul. By opening up to ourselves, and allowing what IS and what ISN’T to be, we can benefit hugely from this eclipses magnified and intense energy! Let’s see this as an opportunity to reflect and face what we have been putting aside or neglecting. I extend my support to each of you in taking this step on your journey!
