The solar eclipse is upon us and the energies are strong. While the total solar eclipse will occur Monday, August 21st, we are already feeling the power of such a unique alignment of the sun and moon. Things are very chaotic right now, and it’s likely that you might be feeling the chaos internally. I am. I wanted to write this week with some grounding tools, so that you can let the powerful energies of the eclipse flow through you and power you up, rather than knock you down.
When you are aligned and grounded in, your system is better equipped to handle strong energies, and you can use them to your advantage. Practicing creativity is one great way to start to ground yourself. When you turn towards creativity, you are also turning towards yourself, tending to yourself. You ask – how do I want to express right now, what wants to come through me? This keeps you in the present moment and connected to your body.
As you pay attention and express what wants to come through you (in whatever form you choose: music, writing, painting, etc.) you are sensitizing yourself to what is really you, and what is not you. You are finding your voice. When you are in deep contact with yourself, and sharing from there, you will feel energized and lit up. As far as being seen, this is the place to come from. Your truth is grounding.
This week, practice dropping into creativity. Set aside time in your schedule to tend to what energies and expression wants to come through you. Stay connected to yourself and let the power of this cosmic alignment flow through you and charge you up. My guess is that you will be surprised and pleased at what emerges!
