Solar eclipses can be tough periods of change and uncertainty. This is an especially difficult eclipse as we haven’t had a visible, total solar eclipse in the USA in about 100 years. And we can already see how much unrest and turmoil this eclipse is bringing forth.
If you walk a spiritual path you know you can pick up emotions, fears, and doubts from others as well as having your own. During this period, or any eclipse period for that matter, it’s important to be aware and accepting of the feelings you’re having.
Don’t judge the emotions that come up for you at this time.
Feelings you have are not necessarily a portent of something bad that’s coming nor are they confirmation of your worse fears. They should not be seen as anything accept a part of you that wants your attention. The best way to handle these feelings is to say, “I’m acknowledging that I’m having these feelings and it’s okay”.
Give yourself a hug.
Treat yourself, during this time, with the same love, understanding and compassion you would give a child who was feeling sad or afraid. Take a few minutes, shut off the distractions, set down the phone and just be still. Breathe and as you exhale release the negativity. As you inhale bring in feelings of love. After a few minutes have a glass of water to finish the clearing.
This eclipse is going to bring some very needed changes into our lives. We will look back on this period and say we’re glad it happened. In the meantime be kind to yourself through this process.
