Today is the eve of a most spectacular cosmic event. Tomorrow morning, Wednesday, October 8th, at 5:50 a.m. CST, we are experiencing a Blood Moon in Aries with a total Lunar Eclipse. Blood Moons are extremely rare, yet we are in the midst of experiencing a series of 4-one occurred last April, one tomorrow, and the other 2 in 2015. An Eclipse is when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are in alignment which creates a most powerful reset energy for us all to connect with. Just as you would imagine, the Blood Moon describes the moon when she is a deep shade of red caused by the Sun's ray's peaking out behind the Earth's surface, creating a sunset effect on the Moon's surface. I was blessed to witness the Blood Moon in April and it took my breath away. I cannot encourage you strongly enough to behold the one tomorrow.
We typically experience eclipses in pairs, which is true at this time. The next eclipse occurs at the Scorpio New Moon on October 23rd. When this happens, it is fondly called an eclipse portal or wormhole, meaning that the energies are supporting great transformation for our Being AND our planet and universe for that matter. It is an opportunity to truly tune in to our multidimensionality and interconnectedness with ALL. You may be noticing that things are being stirred up within you and within aspects of your 'outer' experience. Believe it or not, this is a really good thing! It is exactly what our Higher Self or Soul has in mind for us and our path of evolution. The trick is to stay in trust of the process and avoid the lower self's tendency to jump in to fear and resistance to what is. As I have felt in to these energies, what I am being shown is the image of free falling-I can even hear good ole' Tom Petty's song!-and I remember when I was about 22, participating in a rope's course in which I had to climb this very high tree, to stand on this REALLY small platform and jump off and trust that the ropes would hold me and I would have a soft place to land. I stood up there for several moments with tears in my eyes, unsure if I could really do it. Now I realize it wasn't at all about the jumping. It was about trusting. Trusting myself and Spirit that everything was o.k. Trusting that I wouldn't have been led to that experience if I wasn't meant to have it. So I jumped. And for a few moments, I flew and it was AWESOME! So, my beloved tribe, remember that this time is a gift. A gift of transformation. An invitation to fly! Here are some tools to keep in mind for the journey:
* Keep the body moving with regular exercise. Our physical bodies are shifting with these energies. Nurture it with nutritional food, hydration, and LOVE.
*Create space for stillness with meditation, prayer, and focusing in on the breath.
*Allow yourSelf to explore creative expression through journaling, art, music, or movement. We ALL are creative Beings with much to share!
*Connect with Mother Earth. Spend time taking walks, swimming, or napping under a tree. The Earth's energies are shifting and when we consciously connect with her we are able to stay grounded and feel how united we truly are with her and all of her creation.
*Nurture yourSelf with bodywork and/or energy healing. Now is prime time to receive assistance in releasing what no longer serves. Remember that you deserve the love and care you give to others.
A Path to Gnosis community is gathering in circle throughout this portal time, including a very special circle next Wednesday the 15th that is honoring the power of heart through the blessing of our animal companions and our Mystery School Circle on Friday the 24th. Please see the upcoming events section for more details!
Sending love and light to all as we sail through this powerful time together!
In ONE Love,
