The shadow of the moon crossing the sun and blocking the light…..for brief moments, day becomes night and alters our experience of reality. The total solar eclipse on Monday August 21st, 2017 offers this opportunity from the cosmos to feel and see life differently within our INNER cosmos and emotional bodies. The eclipse energies project the sense of specialness, of a grand event that can unite us ALL in our common experience and sharing of it. Souls at all different phases of awakening and consciousness are moved to witness this event for the chance to feel into these energies, whether subconscious or conscious.
In the U.S., which has struggled in the transition from 3D to 4D with ‘race wars’ as the seemingly primary outward expression of the wounded separation from within, the eclipse is bringing people together regardless of race or nationality. That it is visible as a total eclipse across the U.S. is an invitation of unification in a ‘country’ that is hurting, lashing, growing, rebirthing, and, in this struggle, actually leading the healing of the false self/ego moving into 5D sacred humanity. The U.S., on an emotional body level, has felt most like a teenager to me…rebellious, curious, finding its leadership and power, struggling, thriving, feeling unworthy, feeling arrogant, WANTing. This teenager wants to mature ultimately, to ‘grow up’, and to unify without devaluing individual expression as ‘one nation with the Divine.’ This is a tall order and an example of the challenges that we face inside too as we bridge the gap from our divinity/soul expression to our emotional body/maturity.
In those brief moments of the eclipse, many ‘American’ eyes and hearts will be fixed UPward in curiosity and wonder. In those moments, a specialness will pervade and invade all who are witnesses to the galactic show in the sky. ‘Ordinary’ 3D life will suspend and alter and perhaps something in the soul will want to turn inward too. Perhaps SOMETHING in the soul will be inspired to feel the magic that is within and the possibilities of NEW in every moment and let go of the angsts and rage that project outward and harm.
During a total solar eclipse like this, shadows within are given ‘permission’ to BE as they momentarily obscure our light and are then integrated back in again. The shadow becomes as beautiful and illuminating as the brightness. In many ways, the shadow brings relief, especially if the light has been used to avoid or bypass deeper feeling realities. These August energies seem to be inviting us to feel and BE with the shadows within…the versions of our 3D self that we may have put aside to bring our soul energies in or the parts of us that we might try to suppress such as the Inner Child or Inner Teenager or Inner Punisher…….as I described in this writing where I share my personal experience of this process: https://soulfullheartblog.com/2017/08/18/being-with-and-integrating-lower-and-shadow-aspects-of-yourself-during-ascension/
With the lunar eclipse earlier this month, there was a sense of a ‘pause with an edge’ as the edginess was an invitation for new clarities to come in around service of love and purpose here. In the emotional body, this may have brought up frustrations for you and more sense of what doesn’t work for you anymore as you move into the NEW. This seems to especially be true within relationships, where the grounds of connection are rumbled and shifted so you can feel what is real and deepen…..or complete and move on.

The Lion/Lioness/Sirian gateway and portal openings also occurring this month provide renewed frequencies of abundance and unity, especially related to self healing and within sacred union. These energies and ultimately conscious connection with our Sirian Metasoul soul aspects offer expanded perspectives and clearer commitment to service of love missions. They provide infusions of heart open courage to take the next necessary steps….feeling your needs and desires in a deeper way. I wrote about the codes that became available here, along with a message from Archangel Metatron about them: https://soulfullheartblog.com/2017/08/08/lions-gate-offering-unity-abundance-activation-with-archangel-metatron/
ALL of this cosmic energetic activity in ONE month offers that the process of ascension is being accelerated and fast tracked. This also includes the process of more intense push up of shadow energies to be felt and healed from the collective emotional body. Stronger personal boundaries may be necessary to navigate these shifts as parts of people that are in fear lash out in discomfort, need to stay small, and project unfelt rage and hurt onto others. This is a ‘messy’ time of bittersweet feelings, where the NEW is palatable in so many moments from within us with sometimes seemingly little evidence of it in the mainstream world or ‘out there’.
BEing real about how parts of us are feeling as we navigate this transition of collective awakening is so important, staying connected to our own emotional bodies and allowing what has been suppressed to come out allows more self love to flow within us. This self love flow brings us back home to ourselves, to places of trust and surrender within us, to our ‘home’ from within. Connection with our guides/aspects and especially Star BEings can bring in the bigger picture and sense of the larger movements that are going on to support this shift into 5D New Gaia. Feeling this galactic support can help hold the personal process and the shifting/sorting that it is and continues to BE!
