The sun and moon are two cosmic beings in the Universal picture. The sun, our greatest source of heat and light, surrounds us with its abundant energy. The moon, which has the greatest influence on the ocean tides, brightens the night sky with its heavenly glow. But this energy doesn’t just surround us, it is infused within us. It is part of the very fibers of our being. If we can connect to that energy, as we are intended to, just think of the possibilities that can unfold.
Celestial energies abound this season! In late May, we meditated under the light of the Super Flower Blood Moon, which was also a lunar eclipse. But June brings us something even more incredible: a ring of fire solar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when when the moon moves between the sun and the Earth, blocking the light of the sun. Back in 2017, we witnessed a total solar eclipse (and the first since 1918). A ring of fire solar eclipse is an annual event where the moon is too far from Earth to block the whole sun, leaving the sun’s outer ring exposed.
The path of the eclipse will begin in Ontario, Canada. It will then travel across northern Greenland and the North Pole, and finally northeastern Siberia. Those along this path will have the clearest view of the eclipse, which will last 1 hour and 40 minutes. People in other parts of North America will see a partial solar eclipse. The best viewing areas in the United States are the East Coast, the Upper Midwest, and northern Alaska during and shortly after sunrise. If you live in one of these regions, find a viewing spot with a clear view of the horizon, away from any light pollution. While the ring of fire solar eclipse comes once-a-year, the next total solar eclipse will be on April 8, 2024. This spectacular event will be visible in many big U.S. cities, from Texas on up to Maine.
Regardless of whether you can or cannot see the solar eclipse with your eyes, the event is still unfolding. Its energy is still very much a part of the Universal picture. The ring of fire solar eclipse is a wonderful opportunity to connect to that energy field.
In preparation for this celestial event, follow these tips:
- Be Peaceful: You are part of the Universe, so everything that happens in the galaxy has an affect on you. As you rise early Thursday morning, spend your time being peaceful.
- Protect Your Eyes: Your eyes are the window to your soul. On the day of the event, remember to wear protective glasses when viewing the eclipse.
- Meditate or Practice to Receive Messages: Wherever you are during the time of the total solar eclipse, sit in quiet meditation or hold the Qigong posture, ‘The Dragon Stands Between Heaven and Earth.’ Doing so will help you connect with this infinite Universal power. You never know what messages are being sent and what “information” you will receive.
- Be Observant—Starting Today: Watch the animals. Notice how their patterns begin to change. Are birds chirping louder than usual or is Nature suddenly quiet. How does Nature adjust to this Universal shift? Remember, we are all energy beings—infinitely connected to the Universe. How do Universal changes affect you?
