The Spiritual Significance of the Solar Eclipse <br>from Dr. Joseph Michael Levry

For thousands of years, the time of the solar and lunar eclipses have been known by mystics and yogis as highly inauspicious. On August 21, the world will bear witness to a solar eclipse, and the entire contiguous United States will experience a total solar eclipse, a celestial phenomenon that has not occurred for nearly a century. While the solar eclipse is a major and significant event, there is still a lot of misconception about its true meaning. No matter how wise or foolish we think we are, now is the time to heed the wisdom of the Ages and follow the laws of nature, so that we may understand how the universe works. The laws of nature are like a traffic signal for our lives and we must learn to read the stars like a roadmap. By working with the laws of nature, we get in touch with the intelligent forces that operate through them. The universe is intelligent and it is governed by certain immutable laws. When we live in contradiction with the laws of nature we invite misfortune into our lives. The correct understanding of the manifestation of the laws of nature develops our consciousness and gives us the tools we need to overcome weaknesses, so that we can direct our lives in constructive ways that are healing to ourselves and our loved ones. 
 

We must remember that Light is the principle of perfection and darkness is the absence of Light. During the solar eclipse, there is a decrease in Light, creating an environment more conducive to negativity. Therefore, this is the best time to practice meditation and pray, so that we may increase our inner Light and the brightness of our being. During the period of the eclipse, people are more prone to experience mental, emotional and physical stress that can affect relationships with friends, loved ones and oneself. It is important to highlight that the greatest symbol of Light upon the Earth is the Sun. It is the bringer of light, illumination, healing and goodness. During the upcoming solar eclipse, the Moon will obscure our view of the Sun, creating a time of partial to total darkness, depending on where you live in the world. The degree to which the Sun is eclipsed in your location will translate into the impact it will have on that region. Therefore, this is the best time to strengthen your energy, because there should be no weakness, no cavity and no area where darkness can penetrate in your aura. We must meditate to raise our light and lift the light of all the spirits and souls around us. 
 

The eclipses are periods of rapid change, opportunities for us to go within and accelerate our spiritual, moral and emotional growth. It is a time when the clarity of your mind can be affected and should not be the period you choose to begin a new project, job, relationship or place yourself in any environment where you are more prone to injury. During the eclipse, nature cautions us not to work with the soil of the Earth in any manner, and minimize your chances of unnecessary insect bites. This period can extend from one to three days before and after the actual eclipse can be seen. Unknown to most, mystics have always advised to abstain from having sexual intercourse or conceiving a child during this time. The reason for this is because the sexual force, which is one of the most powerful forces in the entire universe, is infused with solar energy. That force is also connected with the sphere called Yesod, on the Kabbalah Tree of Life, which stands for our foundation, and is linked to the zodiac sign Scorpio. During the time of the solar eclipse, that force is affected. A child conceived during an eclipse can develop imperfections, and pregnant women are discouraged from gazing at the eclipse, for the same reason. Keep in mind that any changes you may be experiencing in your life now are a reflection of your inner world. This is the best time to let go of the past. This period can bring out fear and anxiety. Some people may be forced to experience change in a way that might be uncomfortable, but will ultimately lead to an expansion of consciousness and spiritual growth. We have three major lines of defense: our immune system, electromagnetic field and digestive system. During the eclipse, these lines are more vulnerable, especially our digestive line of defense. If one can, it is preferable to abstain from food during the actual eclipse and, if possible, fast the entire day. Furthermore, one is well-advised to not eat one and a half to three hours before and after the eclipse. If you have a medical condition that requires you to eat more often, light, easily digestible snacks and fruit are preferred. Interestingly, those who find themselves in the third group of 52 days after their birthday or the 52 days directly preceding their birthday, respectively known as the Mars and Saturn periods, should exercise more caution. (For in-depth information about your personal planetary periods and influences, please consult the book Lifting the Veil.) 
 

This is the best time to meditate and fill yourself with God’s love. Alignment to the Divine through meditation and prayer, will rejuvenate your heart, mind and soul on this day. This is the best time to pray in order to create attunement and alignment to the source of your being, the Creator of your soul. Above all, this is a very beneficial time for meditation and working with sacred sound (Naam), especially when practiced in group consciousness. The solar eclipse presents the potential for personal and global transformation. Indeed, vibrating sacred sound in a group during the eclipse contributes greatly towards relieving the suffering of many and healing our world. The heavens are giving us this precious opportunity by opening up a portal to our inner world so that we may rid ourselves of our personal darkness and wash away some of our karma. Allow yourself to see yourself clearly. Those souls who vibrate or listen to Naam at the time of the eclipse receive blessings from the higher world. Vibrate Naam so that you may open your mind and your heart to the touch of the Divine, and increase the outpouring of Light at this spiritually significant time.

The Power of Not Reacting <br>from Dr. Joseph Michael Levry
The Power of Not Reacting
from Dr. Joseph Michael Levry

November 10, 2018

You can do a hundred things right, but it takes only one thoughtless, reactive action to destroy it all. As we grow spiritually, we must attempt to enter into a state of non-judgementalism, and be more unconditional in our capacity to be more loving, tolerant and forgiving of others. Think of how many friendships and relationships with loved ones have been lost, damaged or permanently destroyed within a second as a result of being reactive.

By connecting with the Supreme Truth, expressed in Om Satyam Param Dhimahi, all challenges melt away. When the Truth begins to be born in us, we will begin to feel freedom from all limitations, known and unknown. The scripture reads, “And the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32) As soon as the truth is born in us, we receive freedom, spiritual wealth and divine grace. As a result, we move through life gracefully and smoothly.
