Post Spring Eclipse Season 2013: Life in the “Soft Spot”

All of this is not an explanation, it’s just me putting my hand on my heart. – Shriekback

Hello friends. With two Lunar and one Solar in the past two months, it’s quite possible that some people, places and things that were in place back in March are no longer with us. There may be some grief about that, which is perfectly understandable.

I remember back in the day I was talking (more like complaining,) about the loss of a friendship to my teacher. We were in his beautiful garden in Bonny Doon, CA (near Santa Cruz.) He pointed to a hummingbird that was going from flower to flower for sustenence. He said, “Look at this bird, s/he doesn’t get sad when one of these flowers are gone. S/he just finds another, and so will you.” I remember I didn’t like that comment. It felt callous to me at the time. It took me some time to realize that he was right. People that are meant to travel with us, will. If we’re no longer on the same page, we won’t. It’s as simple as that. That doesn’t mean we won’t have emotion to process about it, and that’s okay too.

The recent period of high level solar activity, eclipses and the Uranus/Pluto energies may have had a powerful “stripping” effect on many people. It is not uncommon for mind to view this as punitive, though in reality it is not. You have been provided with a tremendous opportunity to clear worn-out views, concepts and energies that are no longer in service to you, or in resonance with your new emerging and expanded self. Shanti – The Keepers, 5.26.13

Sagittarius Full Moon/Eclipse Musings

1) It’s good to talk about our feelings but only if they don’t clobber other people, especially if they are feeling vulnerable themselves. Tact and diplomacy never go out of style.

2) The love we deny others, is the love we deny ourselves.

3) Spiritualized Ego is Fool’s Gold. It’s shiny and pretty, and ultimately worth nothing. Knowledge and wisdom come with a price, and sometimes it’s rather high. Beware of the “golden handcuffs.”

4) Views and opinions are as common as dirt and are ultimately meaningless, so why argue over them? It’s impossible to step into unlimited consciousness while we are still arguing for our limitations.

To the degree that you didn’t understand in the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop armoring your heart, you’re given this gift of teachings in the form of your life, to give you everything you need to open further. ? Pema Chödron

It is not uncommon to take weeks and even months to process and integrate Eclipses energies. This time being accompanied by some additional high frequency “add-ons,” it’s safe to say we’ve got our work cut out for us. Please do keep in mind dear readers that we are in a vulnerable time, a collective “soft spot,” so to speak. For how long, is not exactly known. Some folks have recently come directly in contact with some of their deepest, dissassociated shadow material. This can be frightening and unsettling, especially for those who didn’t know it was there. Compassion and holding healing space for everyone especially ourselves, is currently high on the priority list.  The potential for growth and expansion into unlimited and uncharted areas is also here for us. The next round of eclipses will occur in the Fall of this year. Something tells me we are going to be very different beings by the time we get there.

Happy integrating and bright blessings all.

:smitten: Thank you so much! Boy can I feel the compassion and have definitely been holding the healing space for self and others. Your words were confirming on so many levels. Spirit keeps prompting me on when to meditate and what my role is in that moment. Will be glad when the confusion clears and am enjoying the rest this week. In LoveLight, Sandra
