Integrating the Eclipse Energy

How are you feeling post-eclipse? The energies have been taxing, as they are upping our light quotient by more than ever before. As our physical body integrates the light body upgrade taking place, we can be fatigued, dizzy, and experience a deep emotional purging.

Eclipse Energy

The light body expels all that is not in resonance with it. That energy can be from this life, past lives, lives lived prior to this planet, and even collective soul group energies. If it is anything other than hope, trust, acceptance, and love, then it’s gotta go.

During this purging process, some of you will have encountered a deep sadness, anger, or fear bubbling to the surface. These emotions can remain buried in the body under layer upon layer of past life experience. It takes a strong energetic event, such as an eclipse, to “close the door on the past,” and release from within us, all we no longer need.

Some people will experience more of a physical release process, like: changing jobs, living situations, relationships, or health practices. Whatever the eclipse is bringing up for you, know that what you are feeling is temporary, and is only a reflection of that which your Ego/Self has kept locked away from you. The more you find out about the hidden inventory of your own Ego, the better equipped you are to move forward in your life with confidence and joy. The Ego can be your friend, or your worst nightmare. If you work with your Ego to extract all it is holding on to, the better off you will be.

Think of your Ego as a well-meaning friend. They may not always give the best advice, but often, if you look into the words and phrases they use, you can gain inspiration about how they are attempting to assist you. The Ego is much the same as that friend, and will tend to give advice and guidance to you based on either a proactive avoidance of situations, or a reactive explosion to them. Each of the past life patterns has proactive and reactive expressions to how it handles different situations, and those extreme expressions hold hints as to how your Ego is trying to help you.

The Ego holds on to vast reserves of past life energy, and in its quest to avoid repeating the trauma of the past, it will influence you through fear or anger, as a warning sign that you are venturing dangerously close to past life trauma. But, the thing is, to truly avoid repeating our past life traumas, we must touch the energy of them. We need to bring to the surface all that the Ego would prefer to remain hidden; all of the fear, traumas, and challenging energy. We have to get in it, to get out of it.

When your Ego has you locked in the energy of judgment, guilt, shame, or fear, use that emotion as an anchor to deep dive into all aspects of what you are truly feeling. If you do not get the energy out, it continues to inform the Universe, and you will attract the situations in alignment with your fears. This deep dive process is one of the most valuable tools at your disposal to learn how to transform your energy and emotional state at any time. When you deep dive, you reclaim your emotional state, that is where true personal power and sovereignty dwell: in knowing who you are.

The energy of the eclipse is bringing forth those energetic aspects that the Ego would wish to remain hidden, but they cannot. It is time to explore them, and release them for good. We all have an Ego to wrestle with; it is sly and crafty, but definitely not logical. It is an emotional energy, and can fool us into thinking we have it all figured out. To accept that we do not, is one big part of learning how to navigate your Ego as best you can.

Now is the time to heal the past. Now is the time to invest time and energy in yourself. Now is the time to explore all the hidden details of who you truly are. There is no time like the present, and the more you actively participate in this healing and release, the better able you will be to gently pass through these eclipse energies. If you choose to ignore this process, or subconsciously decide that you do not wish to help yourself, you are in for a much longer ride. The choice is yours. Are you willing to do what it takes to clear out the emotional residue, or will you just wait for another time when things are better, or you feel right? If you wait on that, the Ego will have you forever fooled.

Working Towards Your Dream

by Sharon Hoffman

2016 for me seems to be a good year for working towards making your dreams a reality.  I know many people who are doing this, from writing a book to starting a healing business.  My dream is to sell my artwork.  I had previously been working on this, but had come to a dead end.  Then one day I picked a tarot card (for no particular reason) and it told me to seek guidance from an expert to help with my creative endeavour and that the expense would be worth it.  I thought I didn’t need help with my painting itself, but then I did realise I needed help promoting and marketing my work.  So I sat down to meditate (just sitting cross-legged which helps keep your spine straight and the energy flowing).  I asked Spirit who I needed to ask for help and the answer came back to me – Karen Downing!

So I have been working with Karen for the past 2 months on putting my artwork out there, including branding and promoting.  It has been very useful.  The first thing she told me was my artwork needs to be on bigger canvases, which once she said it, made complete sense.  She also suggested marketing towards a more affluent clientele, including aiming for a business market.  I had always struggled explaining my artwork, but after an hour of sitting staring at the computer (thinking business market) and picking my hair (a bad habit I am weaning myself off) I started writing descriptions and I finally felt that I understood my artwork! And the more I channelled explanations, the easier it got.  Recently I was able to understand one of my paintings that is very personal to me and is in my bedroom that looks like an eye.  I realised that in the painting Spirit is telling me to see the beauty within.  So now when I look at the painting I don’t just feel a connection, I hear Spirit telling me to see the beauty in myself (which being a critical Virgo I don’t always find the easiest thing to do!).

Seeing the Beauty Within

Recently I was set homework to put my work on Pinterest and Instagram.  As Karen was explaining what I needed to do, I could feel the energy in my solar plexus tightening more and more with fear!  However, when I did put my work on these sites, I realised how easy it was to do, and wondered what the fuss had been about (fear always seems to go that way).  As I have sessions, I can see the fear in me being chipped away at bit by bit.

Also we have covered past lives, including one where I prostituted myself to sell my artwork and was then hung when I rebelled and made a sculpture the church disagreed with.  I felt so sick hearing about this past life (I was releasing the past life energy and it lasted quite a while after the session too).  And also, I realised I did have a subconscious belief I was going to be killed if I put my work out.  So, I could see this was quite a barrier to promoting myself, lol.

Throughout the sessions energy work is going on too, and I usually have symptoms afterwards, for example last time I suddenly got a cold after and also I have lost my voice.  I don’t know what will happen at the end of the sessions, all I know is that I am chipping away at fear; I am moving in the right direction; and I am determined to the best I possibly can! I have to! I would recommend getting help making your dreams a reality, sometimes we need a bit of support!

 

**Note from Karen:  It was such a lovely surprise to receive this post in my email box last week. Sharon had written it for another website, and asked me for permission to share it there. Once I read it, I knew it also needed to be shared here. I have long stopped soliciting testimonials (I find they feel so contrived), so to receive this lovely email from Sharon, out of the blue, and for her to permit it to be shared so publicly was such a blessing. Also, because of this experience, I have now opened up my blog to guest writers. More details can be found about blog submissions here.  **
