How to work with your stories during this Solar Eclipse

Totality .. that’s what they call it, when the Moon fully covers the Sun at the eclipse tomorrow evening.   Earth is cast into the darkness so to speak, whilst only for a few minutes.  
 

How to work with OUR stories during the solar eclipse energies?

What is darkness only an absence of light?
We know the light can return.   Sometimes we just need to know how to  ALLOW.
We can use the energies of this eclipse to help us see clearly what is lurking in the shadows of our stories, in their totality!
When we send something to the shadow internally we shed no light on it, we literally hide it.   We do this sometimes, as a defense mechanism to help us survive a harsh reality.   It might be easier on us to conform rather than stand up for what we want.
It is our fundamental right to be here right now and to be seen and heard for who we are.

What can be seen as demons or dragons or broken bones or bulging disks, each is a symbol of a bigger, deeper story.
Is what we consider to be a broken body part an indication of a broken story; wanting to be fixed?  Was our body howling at us to stop doing what we were doing but we didn’t listen?     Did we fail to self-care or to ask anger or fear what they were trying to say?   Did we give voice to our concerns or rather, allow them to lie dormant, out of sight, out of mind. 
Alas, what we hide in the shadow is not out of mind, it’s just in the subconscious mind and always has its say and, we may just not realise how strong a say it is having.
 
If you are dreaming demons and dragons, what are they representing to you? How are they making you feel, in your dreams? What emotion are they eliciting?   
Draw them out and engage with them.   Once they are down on paper they won’t seem half as scary!   As you work creatively with them give them colours, or elicit from them what they need to be more friendly?     They will answer you for they are part of you, they are your unconscious coming to life in the only way they know how when you sleep and allow your conscious mind to rest.
 

“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in” Leonard Cohen

Some questions to ponder this eclipse, should you wish to.

  • Am I doing what I am doing from my core?  (It doesn’t matter what it is you are doing right now, the question is the same).
  • Has my root voice, that instinctual voice, got a say?
  • Do I understand the patterns that repeat in my life?

More importantly just be during this time.    Just be in the space between thoughts, the place where all the action happens, the present the HERE AND NOW.

Until next time … keep the faith,
