Editor’s note: I love this piece. It confirms what I believe now and felt the weeks leading up to this event. This eclipse brought energies of Unity Consciousness and with it, massive cellular changes. I have spoken with people who aren’t into ascension at all and they are saying the same thing: they felt amazing, blissful, magical during the eclipse (surprising them) and yet now their bodies are feeling strange, painful, etc. For those of us aware to this experience, just further validation of the frequencies we received on Monday. We are integrating.
Right after the eclipse, I began receiving several texts from my more sensitive, empathic friends around the country asking things like, “Is it normal that I feel dizzy, and sick to my stomach after the eclipse?”, “I cried! What is wrong with me?”, another asked, “Why did I just get so tired all of the sudden?”
First, the good news is there is nothing wrong with you! What you just witnessed in the skies, is also happening in each of us. Many of us have been feeling the energy coming for days now, feeling exhausted during the day, nausea or loss of appetite, sudden sensitivity to certain foods, possibly more anxious than usual, or you’ve had a burst of sudden energy and clarity you’ve been desiring for a long time.
The moment the sun, moon and earth came together, so did our mind, body and soul.
I felt a surge of intense energy start in my solar plexus area, move up into my heart, and out of my eyes in the form of tears. Emotionally, I was overtaken with a sense of immense gratitude, joy and unconditional love. It felt like 10,000 angels were doing energy work on me, all at the same time, as waves of chills went up and down my spine and whole body. While everyone around me was screaming and cheering, I was whispering, “Thank you God, Thank you God.” This is what oneness feels like. No separation, no judgment, no burden or weight of the past or of others, no ‘protecting’ my space, no fear. Just complete freedom, love, and peace. A brand new beginning.
As people started packing up their things to leave right after, I stayed in the park appropriately named, Love Circle, which overlooks Nashville, until I was the only one left. I wanted to fully soak in what I just experienced. As an empath, I am often in sync with what is happening in the skies, and subtly aware of it. But today was not subtle at all. Even for those who don’t believe in such things.
About 2 hours later, I was sitting in a restaurant eating lunch, when I became extremely tired out of nowhere. I almost laid down in the booth and took a nap right there! But I knew this kind of tired, and it had nothing to do with lack of sleep. It’s the kind of ‘trance’ like tiredness we get when spirit is urging us to go into theta state so we can be rebalanced, or be downloaded a new ‘frequency operating system’ in order to adjust to the new energies. I’ve learned, all we can do is go with the flow. Driving home was difficult for me, as all I wanted to do was shut my eyes and nap at each stoplight.
Once I hit my bed, I was out in seconds. In one hour, I woke up and felt a bit disoriented, with some lightheadedness.This is perfectly normal, after a frequency shift this impactful. Some readjustment to the ‘new earth’ is necessary, and your body will respond accordingly sometimes with light headaches, upset stomach, elimination of toxins, vertigo, weakness, etc. The best thing to do is rest, drink lots of water, take a detox bath in sea salt and baking soda, use essential oils for balance, or put your bare feet in the grass, or any other grounding techniques that help you feel more connected to the earth.
So much has been written on the symbolism and phenomenal spiritual awakening of this eclipse. But, if I were to sum up what’s happening within each of us now, it’s change.
Whether you are ready or not, great changes that need to happen in your life, are going to be in the forefront now.
The good news is, this new energy that will be with us for many months, has got your back all the way! If there are situations you haven’t been able to resolve and move forward, you will find it easier now. If you’ve been blocked creatively or in your business, new ideas and inspiration will feel more accessible. If your relationships have been suffering, you now will be able to heal the core issue that lies within and create the love that you are worthy of.
The more accepting you are of these changes, the more fluid your life will become. As you let Love guide you away from what has hurt you or kept you stuck in your life, what you fear will become smaller and less significant. Who you know you are deep inside is who you can become now.
