Today is a very special and rare day. As you have probably heard, much of the US will experience a solar eclipse, and some of us will experience a total solar eclipse. This particular path from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean has not occurred in 99 years.
Some say that we have a particularly golden opportunity to manifest, that is, bring into our lives, something we really want with this eclipse. And whether that ends up being a fact or not, as I see it, it can’t hurt to give it a try!
What do you want to bring into your life?
Is there an area of your parenting that you wish to improve upon?
What about another relationship?
Is there something you want to bring into your business?
What about your money?
If you have a few minutes before the eclipse begins in just a few hours, spend some time thinking about all these areas of your life and what you would like to see in the future. And then when the moon slips in front of the sun, put those intentions out into the Universe and watch what happens!
One final note of caution
You have likely heard this by now, but please do not look directly at the eclipse, as it can do major damage to your eyes. The difference looking at the sun during an eclipse is that it will not make your eyes uncomfortable as it does when you attempt to look directly at the full, bright sun. So you may feel as if you can look at it, but in the meantime, it will be doing serious damage to your eyes.
In a similar vein, be wary of taking photos of the eclipse, either with your camera or even your phone. I’m not sure if this is accurate, but I read a headline on our high school’s website that said that without a special filter for the lens, taking photos of the eclipse with your bare phone or camera could burn the “eye” in the camera, just like it could do inside of your actual eye. So unless you have a special filter, leave the photography to the pros.
