Over the past days and lead up to the eclipse the energy has felt intense for me. I don’t know if it’s the things going on in my reality, or the collective anticipation of the centennial event that brings people together to watch and wonder about the mystery, and perhaps all of the energy created added to the collective intensity. We see the sun disappear for a few moments, then reappear and it’s quite awe filling experience. I have never watched one live and only caught the recordings. I remember one in the 1970’s when I was in primary school in Perth, Australia and we had instructions to remain inside. I remember looking out the window at the darkened sky and an eerie feeling that made me wish I was at home instead of the classroom.
A quick energy recap over the past year and a half
Yesterday I felt extremely flat and despite the eclipse build up still happening and was due around 4.30am this morning Melbourne, Australia time, the whole of yesterday felt awful and there was little energy to work with. The enthusiasm I’ve had over the past month to write disappeared (and thankfully is back today). I felt tired and heavy again, as I have felt off and on for some years now with often brief energy spikes in between that were used to write and create, and then what seemed like long insufferable periods in between with little motivation. For me 2016 was the final straw with energy flatness, and I could see from friends and others on Facebook and people I am connected to in person, that flatness and or events during the year had challenged us to extremes we never realised were possible.
When 2016 ended we were never so happy to see it go and held hope that 2017 would see movement of energy again and for a while it did appear to be shifting blocks – albeit painfully at times, but we were so grateful for the movement that we accepted the challenges as part of growth. Then the challenges came in even greater proportions and many of us felt an exasperation and despair that has been unparalleled for some time.
The flatness has also continued at times this year but is nowhere like last year thankfully, until yesterday for me and a dear friend who contacted me today, but I feel it will be short lived as energy and momentum builds again. Other things have happened this year and a lot of it has been for the purpose of getting to the very deep roots for core healing and the roots of wounds run very deep indeed. I’m given a picture of a tree section with lines for each year of growth and in the centre is the young tender sapling. This centre is where our deepest and earliest roots reside. I can only say that in the wisdom of this journey and universal support that we know operates with more reliability than German engineering precision, the energy of this time now is supportive for many of us to address the roots of our issues – and this is major major work for us – and as such we are experiencing the intense kind of pain that may have not been felt for a long time – taking us back to excruciating childhood experiences that may have caused us to shut down and build defences to cope and quite rightly so. We may be seeing ourselves recreate things from the past so that we can address them and these experiences may have been beyond words. All of this creates enough pressure for us, added to this the political situations and pressure from people in our communities and on a global scale who are also suffering. If we feel like we are in a pressure cooker now we are not imaging the feeling.
The friend that contacted me today described the flat feeling as oppressing and we both felt that suffocating was an apt way of saying what we felt. Again if feels like Groundhog day of nothing changing and nothing on the horizon to feel inspired about, which given the current world situation it’s hardly surprising that people wonder if the future will be bright or perhaps even exist for people who do not have the funds to buy a ticket elsewhere.
Yet as we look into the future in view of this current paradigm, it’s clear that the things we hold dear are being challenged and changed (shaped), as the current paradigm requires us to transform the Earth and ourselves to accommodate and weather the harshness that is developing due to millennia of mistreatment of humans and the violence and maladaptive examples of behaviour we are bathed in now from media and each other, has caused us to become defensive, and shut down our hearts for protection. In effect this has created the state of lawlessness (fear of one another due to harmful learned behaviour) which causes people’s hearts become cold [shut down], and is playing out as original source prophecies that I believe have been underpinning and directing our society for centuries. The link is to a recent article that explains this in more depth and just a quick note to say that I don’t hold any religious or theological beliefs and offer what I have become aware of over the past 10 years of looking more deeply into the workings of this paradigm and why and how people have been so affected by it. My intention and drive to write comes from a need to understand theses thing first for myself and then share them with others and I have waited 10 years to write these things.
Effects from an eclipse
Some of us may be concerned about effects on the Earth, such as earthquake activity, which scientists say is more probable around an eclipse, as well as during full moon and new moon and a full solar eclipse always happens on a new moon. While the possibility of earthquake after eclipse increases by 3x, we are told the chance of this happening are still very low. This knowledge helps us to prepare in case something does happen, which I hope it doesn’t, and especially if we live in an area prone to earthquakes.
Having a look to see there are no major earth movements today, my main concern is what I see as the fall out after energy extraction, that is after the build up to the eclipse where energy is heightened due to triggers from past associations with eclipses, and now that our energy (attention) has been given to the solar event, we may feel an anti-climax that is even more contrasted with the current political situation that offers little comfort. I feel this situation of low energy has left many of us feeling more vulnerable than we may have done before the eclipse when energy was greater.
The intention of this writing is to help support us to strengthen ourselves through having knowledge of what is pulling our energy from us and to help us heal through reclaiming our spiritual energy (our life force) and not allow ourselves to keep being divided or split into pieces by unhealthy energy that is endemic in this paradigm. I would like to share what I have learned about how we are triggered by events like an eclipse and offer thoughts that the triggers are due to events of the past that are kept in collective memory by historical records, passed on through DNA from our ancestors, and memories of actual past life experiences we have had.
Journeying back to the past to understand the present
To understand the significance of the eclipse throughout human history we need to look at the phenomena that are associated with eclipses so that we can get a clear picture of the conditioning that humans experienced with them. We need to look at the historical record to see the suppression of power and shaping of obedience through fear throughout our history. As I will shortly explain, the associations of eclipse with negative things from the past may be another stressor adding to the already filled pot, as many of us are feeling vulnerable to forces that have been creating storms of fear and uncertainty for our survival on this planet.
We may wonder if the play between USA and North Korea was aimed to coincide with the total solar eclipse this year and adding more meaning and symbolism to ecliptic associations. Whether this was intentional or not, the effects of loading symbolic and historic events like the eclipse with more meaning, has the effect of creating an even greater trigger for when the next eclipse comes. In any case the natural eclipse will automatically pick up a new association fears of war and instability of leaders and it will intensify the USA-North Korea situation with a powerful reminder of a dark, oppressive, fearful, and violent past, even if just on a subconscious level.
We are fortunate that we don’t have to endure the terror that our ancient ancestors went through wondering what the eclipse may hold and if it was going to be the end of the sun. Yet the memory of the feelings associated with this have been imprinted in the collective psyche and passed on with historical information and through our own past life memory. In the past this was an event in the heavens that we had no control over and reinforced our feelings of powerlessness and dependency on people who assumed power and had reported to have connections with the unseen sun gods.
The shift of power given willingly to others
This is something I believe it holds a great deal of importance to understanding the bigger picture, as to why great numbers of people allowed themselves to be powerless to a few rulers. Those rulers claimed to be descendants of the sun gods and representing them on Earth. They enforced the building of enormous structures to prove their power and implant the idea that they are larger than the average person, through association of the ruler with the buildings and statues they created. Many of these structures display graphical representations and or words to show the connection with the sun gods and other gods. Another point that I feel is vital in piecing things together, is in the view of the ancients, the sun gods were essentially alien beings. Alien meaning, not originating from this Earth. In organised religion and anyone who believes in a form of deity today, this is essentially still the same. I will talk more about this later in the post.
Over time as people turned away from sun god religions such as Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and other religions who worship and acknowledge an unseen god figure or multiple gods, adjustments have had to be made to ensure that people continue to hold Earth born leaders in fear and reverence. For if we didn’t give them our respect (spiritual power), then the leaders would no longer have our free will and consent of power. The transfer of power is done through us willingly giving our power to them. We see manifesting as the democratic game, where we are given energy in the form of promises to take care of us and these form unwritten agreements within us. If one candidate fulfils more of our personal agreements we will choose that one to give our spiritual power and consent to rule us. We entrust the energy provided by candidates by voting for them and take part in the act of handing over our spiritual power and trusting in their ability and integrity to deliver on their promises. Even if we are not 100% sure of the leader’s integrity, and even when they have not kept promises and have betrayed us in the past we will give them another chance, and even when our gut tells us that we can’t really trust them and knowing that throughout human history the same story of false promises from leaders has been played out many times over. We have been conditioned to believe that we must give our power away to a leader and that leader may be cruel and not genuinely care but we have to choose one of them and we will weigh up which one agrees with us more.
Unfortunately this game of power acquisition and false promises is not just used by government leaders. Many many people find themselves in relationships of all kinds, marriages, partnerships, work places, etc., where promises made to pull us in and then are not only are they left unfulfilled, but we end up becoming trapped in unhealthy situations and often dependent on destructive people who strip our self-worth, demand more and more of our power, and continually use tactics to disrupt our peace to further weaken us to ensure their power and control over us.
Humans are social learners and over time this process has been becoming more and more ingrained in our social structures and people who have been hurt by this often go on to hurt others in the same way. This is the effect of social learning.
We are not machines and too many threats to our survival cause problems
It’s well known that people can only handle so many stressors at one time before we start to effectively break down, as this quote explains:
“Stress can be a motivator. It can be essential to survival. The “fight-or-flight” mechanism can tell us when and how to respond to danger. However, if this mechanism is triggered too easily, or when there are too many stressors at one time, it can undermine a person’s mental and physical health and become harmful.
According to the American Psychological Association’s (APA’s) annual stress survey, average stress levels in the United States (U.S.) rose from 4.9 to 5.1 on a scale from 1 to 10 in 2015. The main reasons given are employment and money.”
Yet we know the reality of the current paradigm is steeped in stress and uncertainty and frequent changes undermining any security we attempt to create within it.
Self care is essential for riding through this
More than ever I feel it’s essential to have good self-care and tools to help ourselves calm our minds and recalibrate our physical being with soul, by seeing all of this in perspective of the bigger picture and remembering that we are here as souls having a human experience. To help with calming the mind and body with soothing music and life affirming thoughts I have a free meditation and affirmation movie you are welcome to use as needed, as well as a short guided meditation to read.
Breaking free from the narcissist
If I distill the purpose of my writing, it’s to help myself and others see more of the big picture and join the dots so we can truly take back our power without any of the energies pulling us away from ourselves – and there are a great many of these energies that create fear, doubt, divide us against each other, and split our minds in pieces that spin around unresolved. I began talking about microcosm-macrocosim analogies during my talks in 2015, where we can look to see how something works on a smaller level and how this translates to a larger level and vice versa. In this case, looking from the perspective of a relationship with a person suffering from malignant narcissistic traits and creating a lot of damage, the best course of action for many, indeed what they have been recommended to do by health professionals and in some cases law enforcement, is to make a clean break and protect themselves from the often spiteful and controlling behaviours used by the narcissist to regain or keep their power. In essence we can see throughout our history where people who try to break free from the control of a narcissist and stop feeding their ego have been made to suffer dearly. The issues with many in these relationships is that they have become so conditioned to receiving disrespectful and unhealthy treatment, that it has become normalised for them and like a destructive relationship with anything in this world (destructive people, coca cola, trans fats etc.,) we have to actually see where it’s affecting us and to realise what is happening before we know what it actually is that we need to break ourselves free from.
We need to see through the confusion and fog of dissonance created, often through many false promises of genuine care and trying to reconcile some kindness, (even in small measure) with the sometimes blatant and sometimes underhanded or ambiguous (passive-aggressive) hatred and abuse. Often this takes people to share their own experiences so we can initially see through their eyes as a mirror of what we are experiencing. It takes time to break free from conditioning and we need to be a bit patient with ourselves and trust our intuition is telling us when something is not right or feels unhealthy then we need to look more deeply into what is going on.
When we see these things we will begin to see this form of narcissistic symbolism in almost every aspect of our history and current life and I believe this is exactly what we need to see in order to free ourselves from it.
As we I felt to look at the history of eclipses as I believe it’s where we’ll find answers to what stirs deeply within us as a full eclipse approaches and how it might affect us during and afterwards.
Communication from the heavens
Even in this day of knowing why the moon eclipses the sun, we still have an event that is very significant to people, and we respond in ways similar to our ancestors. It brings us together just as any natural spectacle from the sky may do (e.g., full moons, comets, meteor showers). We are very attracted to displays of fireworks and I feel that they also trigger a memory within us from the past associations with the sky and fear around the concept of gods. This was used to elicit fear and respect and imprinted a belief that people were powerless and depended on the benevolence of the gods and / or their representatives on Earth (leaders) to survive and prosper. Could it be that we have memories of being gathered together to watch as the authority of the time associated themselves with the sky gods by the clothing, symbols, their presence and any rituals that were been performed?
Perhaps we may see public displays today with ancient symbols (people, their names, pictures and or words) being reused and are recognisable enough to trigger memories. The gods in the sky were not visible, so the leaders on Earth were seen as their representatives and in some cases seen as carrying the bloodline of the sun gods.
Today when people are not as easily swayed by god figures it seems other ways are used to gain respect and give spiritual energy to rulers who still link themselves to a sun god of some kind. In Australia the Christian sun god is still mentioned in the constitution as an unseen authority that is enacted on by the governments. Here is a list of other countries that do the same.
This is a band promotion for an organised eclipse concert in Oregon. The name of the band is clearly after an Egyptian sun god Ra, and Marshall Allen’s clothing and elongated hat establish the symbolic sun god-figure that people will essentially worship by giving their energy to the sun god image, by proxy of the talents of the performer.
After a large build up of energy from the efforts of leaders of USA and North Korea and the lead up to the eclipse, there is a lot of energy bursting the seams and being transferred to the solar events and those that represent the sun gods on Earth (present day rulers). If you would like to read more about this I recommend this website.
Given the sun is the source of heat and life for our world, associating a god with it who may take it away would be incredibly stressful and downright terrifying for people who relied on authority to see beyond what they could see and understand what was unseen to them. Essentially they trusted authority to guide them with something that went to the very core of their survival. These were no small matters then, just as they are no smaller now. The situation has not changed greatly, it has only altered over time as we now have more information about the universe, yet the unknown factors of forces controlling us, e.g., stories of prophecy and or big business and or even aliens (alleged sun gods) controlling rulers are still present amongst us and we still entrust our lives, even begrudgingly, to people who show little genuine respect and care for us and more concern for maintaining ego and power. The current paradigm in place ensures that if we are to live in the society we must accept this current reality, rather than choosing something ourselves.
If we look at the picture of the ancient world and the picture now, nothing has really changed and the blueprint or framework of this paradigm of sun god leadership is still as firmly in place as it ever was – at least in the history that we know much about.
Full solar eclipses were seen as omens
This news article offers a perspective of seeing the eclipse in the shoes of the ancients who didn’t know of astronomy and essentially believed what they were told by leaders. As the article quotes:
“In ancient times, every culture had a sun god, and it was usually one of the chief gods of their whole pantheon,” explains Bradley Schaefer, astronomy professor at Louisiana State University. “Humans couldn’t touch what’s in the sky, so they believed it must be where the gods are. When you have a total solar eclipse, it looks like the death of a god, and to them, that couldn’t be a good thing.”
It’s actually well worth a look for the historical perspective of how this kind of event affected people then. As these people are our ancestral past that we have developed from and may well have experienced as a reality in past lives. What they absorbed became part of them and has carried through to us, as genetic memory and through our collective learning.
If we carry memory of fear, myth and reverence around the eclipse in the past, we can see where it may stir deep feelings within us, and especially the period after the eclipse where people were waiting to see if and how things would eventuate.
As you can see from the article the full solar eclipse was associated with foretelling darkness and was associated with the darkness crated from blocking the sunlight.
I noticed a number of articles posted recently about the ancient perspecive of eclispe and their practices and this keeps the ancient ways in our consciousness.
The title of this aptly says what I am saying here, Eclipse Superstitions Are a Thing of the Past, and the Present
I haven’t completed this and will add more as I have time.
Take good care of you, look after your heart, and blessings x
