Today is a powerful day with the New Moon as well as the solar eclipse. Since the energies are very potent today it is a perfect day to write down what you want to manifest, all for the greatest good of course. Write down your manifestations and put them out to the universe. This is also a great opportunity to release pain and for healing. Many of us are carrying around a well of pain as we trek through our daily lives, aware that it is lying just beneath the surface but we tend to ignore it all the same. The longer we ignore it, the harder it will be to work through the pain as it will often manifest itself in illness or disease. We are then forced to acknowledge the pain, but at what cost have we stifled it and who will have to pay the cost, you, society, or your loved ones? Rather than waiting for this to happen, we can empower ourselves by identifying the pain and resolving to take action toward healing.
The very thought of doing this can make one uncomfortable. We often wonder, why go digging for trouble if everything feels okay? However, if we have not processed past traumas they will linger until we are forced to look into those dark spaces. By being brave and proactive, we can save ourselves a lot of suffering and free up all that energy tied up with the pain to manifest greater happiness for ourselves and in turn the universe.
There are many ways to do this, but the first step is to recognize the pain and honor it by moving our awareness into the pain. In this process, even if it’s just five minutes during meditation, we will begin to have a sense of what the pain is made of. As we sit with the pain, we will also have a sense of whether we can deal with it by ourselves. It may be time to work with a counselor, or some other means of healing with close friends. Whatever path you choose, resolve to go deep into the pain, so that you can release it fully and set yourself free. Once you have looked at your pain, use this opportunity of the New Moon and the solar eclipse with all that wonderful energy at your disposal from the universe to manifest the things you would like to see happen in your life. Set them out into the universe at this most powerful energetic time. Remember, it is never too late in life to heal what hurts, and there is never a better time than now.
