A total solar eclipse heightens all energies on Earth.
Path of the Solar Eclipse on March 8, 2016
A total solar eclipse heightens all energies on Earth even if it can’t be viewed in most of the Americas. It is still quite magical, as the luminous disc of sunlight appears as a ring of fire in the sky when it is blocked out by the new moon at the fartherest point in her orbit. Some people believe when these celestial bodies align, and the sun is obscured from our view, other things come to light for us on Earth. For centuries, eclipses have been viewed as rare, magical occurrences, while being feared and looked upon as “bad omens” by the superstitious (you know – the ones who, once upon a time, burnt wise women at the stake as witches and heretics).
The wise have been aware of our close relation to the movements of the solar system for centuries. As you work with the powerful energy of this eclipse, turn your attention to the powerful Sun, the very star that gives life to our Mother Earth, giving thanks for the sustenance its rays bring. And forget not the Moon, without whom this eclipse would not be possible.
For those who like starry things: March’s new moon in Pisces brings the supercharged energies of dreams, rebirth, change, and new beginnings here on Earth. Pisces says dream; new moon says start, and with eclipse energy shining light on areas that need attention and forcing events into play that will usher you forward. Take this period as a sign to turn your gaze inward, taking stock of where you are on your personal journey.
FRAGRANCES: Rosemary and Lemon in the diffuser and, diluted, on your solar plexus.
For a solar plexus empowering perfume oil to inspire confidence and stability mix 5 drops lemon essential oil, 3 drops jasmine absolute essential oil and 5 drops frankincense essential oil with 1/2 ounce sweet almond oil. Dab behind the ears, wear directly on the solar plexus or apply as an aromatic body oil after shower.
CRYSTALS: Citrine or Kyanite ( any color of Kyanite may be used to create the chakra alignment. Its use will aid in the general flow of energy throughout the body)
SOUNDS: Search for ‘Meditation Music for the Solar Plexus’ and choose one. There is even a Kundalini Solar Eclipse chant
Light a candle–a simple white one will do, The Solar Plexus is the FIRE in our belly.
Relax and turn within, focusing on our breath, on your candle flame, and on your intention to see if there are any fears that could be holding you back from doing what you want to be doing. Let the fears GO. Release them without explanation.
Now, breathe in super charged energy, filling yourself. When you are full of the golden energy, push it outside yourself into your aura, forming a protective shield around you.
Give yourself the permission and the means (yes, this includes he money), to be who you are REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYBODY ELSE THINKS OR BELIEVES IS POSSIBLE. Do not deny yourself the life you want to live because you’re worried you’re not good enough or that you’ll be judged or that it’s too risky, because who does that benefit? No one, that’s who. When you live your life doing the things that turn you on, that you’re good at that bring you joy, that make you shove stuff in people’s faces and scream, “check this out!!!” You walk around so lit up that you shoot sunbeams out of yer eyeballs. Which automatically lights up the world around you. Which is precisely why you are here: to shine your big-as ball of fire onto this world of ours. A world that literally depends upon light to survive. Believe, really believe that what you desire is here and available to you and you can have it all. ….from ‘You are a badass”by Jen Sincero
Put your hands before your stomach, slightly below your solar plexus. Let the fingers join at the tops, all pointing away from you. Cross the thumbs. It is important to straighten the fingers.
Concentrate on the Navel chakra located on the spine, a bit above the level of the navel.
Chant the sound RAM.
YOGA: Navel Chakra (Manipura): Boat Pose (Paripurna Navasana)
Lesson: The lesson of the third chakra involves replacing insecurities with confidence so practice Boat Pose allowing yourself to shake and feel the burn in your core offering you the opportunity to summon the inner strength to keep going and know that YOU CAN DO IT!
Affirmation: Repeat, “I am confident and worthy.”
Throughout the day, visualize the golden glow as the moon blocks out the sun and know that whatever gets in the way of your glow will soon move on and your shine will be just as bright as it was. If you have an opportunity find a quiet spot, preferably near water, and do “The Great Sunshine” mediation. Face the Sun with your feet shoulder width apart, arms raised, palms and head facing up. Visualize warm rays entering your body through the center of your forehead and palms, circling around the solar plexus and exiting through the soles of your feet. It’s sunlight for your soul!!!!!!!
In addition to the chakra clearing and balancing meditations, there are several ways that you can focus your energy and intention on balancing and clearing the Solar Plexus Chakra. Connect with the mineral energies of citrine, yellow or gold topaz, tiger’s eye, amber, and gold. Use spices that are warming and aid digestion, such as ginger, peppermint, turmeric, cumin, and fennel. Drink ginger, peppermint, or chamomile tea. Gift yourself a sunflower. Practice exercises that strengthen the core muscles. Become aware of your thoughts, particularly those you have about yourself, and consciously choose to transform negative thoughts into positive ones. Begin a meditation practice, if you have not done so already, in order to still the mind of the ego in order to hear the voice of the Soul. Realize that you are your own Creator, you are the Architect of your reality, and as such you are the most powerful person in your world.
