The solar eclipse ritual itself
From ancient times the movement of the planets and the celestial bodies has been acknowledged with ceremonies and rituals. Our ancestors knew and understood the importance of the Sun, Moon, and the other planets and stars in Solar system to our life on Earth. It is no coincidence that most age-old deities represented the great Sun (the Egyptian Ra, the Greek Helios, the Roman Sol etc.) and the Moon (the Greek Selene, the Roman Luna, the Egyptian Thoth, etc.)
The cycles of these celestial bodies are proven to be very important for our abilities to manifest our desires. We all know the power of the New Moon – a symbol of the new beginning and the conception of our wishes.
But there is also a similar astronomical phenomenon we can use to assist us on our way of becoming conscious creators – the Solar Eclipse.
The Solar Eclipse is a bit similar to the New Moon for the Sun, but it doesn’t occur that often. Maybe that is why it is so special.
An eclipse happens when the Moon passes in-between the Sun and Earth, partially or fully obscuring the solar disk from our perception. The period before this configuration is a good time to finish some old tasks and projects, pay off debts, and fulfill some old promises.
So, how many solar eclipses occur in one calendar year?
There are typically about 2 eclipses in a year but they are not always visible from both hemispheres. That should not stop you from using their power to manifest your desires!
You can check the exact dates from this website and mark them on your phone so you don’t forget to harness the powerful solar eclipse ritual magic!
Should you even manifest during a solar eclipse?
If you are actively searching for the answer to this question you will probably find information on both extreme parts of the spectrum – “you should never ever try manifesting during an eclipse” or “this is the best time to set intentions for positive changes”. So, which one is true? Here I will do my best to answer this dilemma based on what I have learned from other respected astrologers and also based on my personal experience on the subject.
Now, I can totally see why this is so controversial. On one hand, we have a New Moon happening alongside a solar eclipse (the solar eclipse always coincides with the New Moon) which gives an extra weight and a boost on that celestial event. This may be seen as a reinforced energy and a powerful drive for new beginnings and important life changes. On the other hand, we have the light coming from the Sun, the source of life and life energy on Earth, being blocked by the Moon. This alone may give us a strong icky feeling of something sinister happening. And that is probably why our ancestors considered these events as not so positive.
However, what I really like about astrology is that it is a collection of data which has been observed over many years. Hence, we can certainly rely on the evidence that experienced astrologers gathered along their life-long practice with clients. And that’s what I want to do here – to get real and draw some knowledge and wisdom from some of these seasoned experts on the field.
So, I will gather some valuable information from one of my most favorite educational book series on the topic of astrology – The Only Way to Learn Astrology by Marion D. March and Joan McEvers. In volume 4 of the series we can find their take on the effect of eclipses on our lives and how they were often experienced by their clients. Remember, this is based on evidence of long-lasting careers in natal chart analysis. What the authors state is that the solar eclipses put an extra focus on the natal house in which they would happen (that is why down below I have included a list of the houses and the zodiac signs and how you can utilize their energies during this celestial event). Yes, eclipses have been regarded as bad omens by our ancestors, but the authors’ professional observations did not prove this to be true. Again, what they found is that a certain area of our lives (depending on the house) is a little more at focus at that time. And another extremely important thing that I really think has to be mentioned – fatalism and determinism in astrology (the idea that planets and their aspects affect us in a certain way and there is nothing we can do about it). What I really like about the approach of March and McEvers is how they include the person’s free will and their attitude towards a certain astrological configuration or a transit into the equation. I must concur with their opinion – our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and our overall attitude will influence how we experience a certain transit. So, if you have strong fears and negative expectations about the upcoming solar eclipse, you may very well experience it in a much more negative light, and vice versa.
Now, what has been my personal experience with the solar eclipse manifesting ritual? Well, I have been approaching these events in the past with a sense of curiosity and open-mindedness, and some of my most wonderful and unexpected materializations happened as a result of simply writing down my wishes during an eclipse. Just to see what would happen.
However, you do you! You, only you and your higher self know the answer to this dilemma! I would encourage you to follow your gut instinct and decide for yourself whether this would be a good time to set intentions for the future or not.
And here’s my back-up plan!
If you wish to dip your toes into this process, but you are a little worried how it might play out, I would recommend a couple of steps you can take:
- Get curious. Approach the solar eclipse with curiosity and an open mind to just observe. Grab a notebook and start journaling your thoughts, feelings, fears, excitements, expectations, important events, etc. In other words, gather information on your personal experiences during this event, and in time you may muster the courage to try manifesting. Or you may very well decide that this is definitely not for you!
- Wait for the event to pass. If the solar eclipse itself is giving you an icky feeling in the gut, you can still utilize the boosted energy of the New Moon and do some goal-setting. Simply wait for at least 8 hours up to one week (while the Moon is still growing) for the Sun to come back to its full potential.
- Challenge your fears. This is something I try to do on a regular basis and I do ponder on the idea of free will versus having a totally fixed life path. I think anyone who is interested in any manifesting practices should work on their fears since they influence our energetic output. Fear, by all means, muds the waters of our ability to materialize a better life experience, and I think that it is one of the biggest sources of self-sabotage. If this interests you, you can check out this awesome fear processing exercise by Inelia Benz, as well as this amazing Youtube channel – it has some great resources and exercises you can start implementing right now!
Alrighty! Let’s see how the solar eclipse might be experienced in our personal unique existence depending on the zodiac sign and the natal house it occurs.
The Solar eclipse through the zodiac signs and the natal houses
If you wish to take your solar eclipse manifesting ritual to a whole new level you can use its position to further refine your intention setting part. You can do this depending on the zodiac sign as well as the natal house in which this celestial phenomenon will happen.
For instance, on 25th October 2022 at 08:58 UTC there will be a solar eclipse in Scorpio (at 1 degree 53 minutes). So, you can use the energy of Scorpio to laser focus your manifesting power in that direction.
However, I do think that the position in your natal chart will be much more useful and personalized. For example, everyone on Earth will experience this partial eclipse in Scorpio, but the area in their lives which will be affected will be different. So, I would encourage you to check the house as well. You can do this by looking at the house in your birth chart in which the 1° 53” Scorpio position is placed. Here’s an example! Let’s say that the solar eclipse during the autumn of 2022 will be in the first house (the Ascendant) of a particular individual. And since this is a phenomenon which happens in Scorpio, and Scorpio is the sign of transformation, we can point out that this would be a good time to set an intention to change some personal traits and set goals on all kinds of topics related to the persona as well as the physical appearance.
I hope I was able to clarify this process as best as I could so that you got a better idea how to use the position of the Sun in your manifesting and intention-setting rite.
So, let’s check the other positions. I will combine them according to the sign and the natal chart since the energy they bring is very similar. However, you need to remember that the sign is the general energy that we bring into play, while the house is the setting or the area in our lives in which some possible events would happen.
Here’s another example in an effort to make things even clearer. On 20th April 2023 at 01:34 UTC we will have a solar eclipse in Aries (at 29 degrees 42 minutes), and this will bring a powerful energy of new beginnings and competitiveness. If this phenomenon at 29° 42” Aries happens in your seventh house in your natal chart, for instance, you can definitely use this energy to set an intention to form new positive and constructive personal or business relationships. If that’s something near and dear to your heart.
OK, let’s get to the other positions!
Solar eclipse in Aries or in the first natal house (the Ascendant)
Since Aries is the first sign in the zodiac wheel it is the ultimate symbol of new beginnings. So, this would be the perfect opportunity for you to set a goal to start something new that would positively influence your life – anything that would make your heart sing. The Ram is also related to competitiveness and basically being the first at your endeavors. Hence, think about in which areas you wish to get ahead and achieve more, and you can definitely do some intention setting around these fields. Moreover, a solar eclipse in the first house of your natal chart (also called the Ascendant) will give you a positive boost to work on whatever personal traits and characteristics you want to enhance. Also, anything related to your physical appearance and how you show up into the world, as well as how others perceive you will also be at focus during this time. So, definitely think about possible manifestations around these topics.
Sun eclipse in Taurus or in the second natal house
A solar eclipse in Taurus will have a positive effect on any manifesting rituals around the more materialistic side of our lives (not necessarily in the negative sense of the word). If you are thinking about materializing a physical object into your experience, this would be a great opportunity to do so. This is especially true for setting goals to acquire some real estate since Taurus is an earth sign, and some astrologers even accept that Earth itself is the true ruler of the second zodiac sign. However, there is this misconception about the Bull and the second astrological house that they are mainly related to our physical possessions and assets. This is not the whole picture. The second house can also be related to our intangible values as human beings. So, you can definitely use this solar eclipse in Taurus or in your second house in your birth chart to set an intention to manifest more of what you value in life, what is truly important to you and your existence on Earth.
Solar eclipse in Gemini or in the third natal house
The best way to utilize this celestial phenomenon is to focus on communication. Gemini and its ruling planet Mercury give us the necessary energy boost to improve our communication skills and better connect to the outer world and to feel understood. Anything which has to do with working with our hands is right in the ally of Gemini and the third house – writing, crafting, computer science, marketing, journalism, public relations, etc. So, if you have a desire in that realm, definitely use this opportunity to bring it to fruition. And that’s not all! Mercury is also connected to the area of trade, entrepreneurship, and short distant travels. This means that if you have any aspirations in this field, this is your time to dream big, and set powerful intentions to become a more successful businessperson who communicates their ideas and serves their clients better! Did I mention the travelling part? If you have a dream of taking a vacation to a nearby place, you can definitely start your manifesting process right away!
Sun eclipse in Cancer or in the fourth natal house (the Imum Coeli)
The Crab is the zodiac sign related to our nurturing qualities and motherhood. This means that a solar eclipse in Cancer will be a good time to make your manifesting ritual around the areas of being more gentle, caring, and being a better parent (if you have kids or intend on having children soon). This is also a good time to work on your relationship with your own mom. It is very likely that the bond you have with her will be illuminated in this period and you may get some insights on how you can improve in that area. One of the best tools for that purpose I have found is the family constellations method. I mentioned it in my article on the best manifesting tools, and I have also created a list of recommended books to read to get acquainted with the system. You can check them out before booking your first session. On a more mundane side of things, the solar eclipse in Cancer or the fourth astrological house can be used to materialize anything related to your home environment – buying a home, furniture, decoration items, etc. – anything that would improve your surroundings and add coziness and warmth into your life!
Solar eclipse in Leo or in the fifth natal house
The sign of Leo and the fifth house are related to our tendencies to shine bright, being in the spotlight, being creative, and getting approval and recognition by others. So, this would be a good time set goals in these areas. Where do you shine? What do you want to be recognized for? Do you aspire to perform in front of people? Do you want to get more achievements (especially in the realm of sports and arts)? If so, the solar eclipse in Leo may be perfect to initiate and set intentions in this ally. Thinking about having kids? The fifth astrological house is related to children, and if that’s something that you passionately desire, this may be a good time to ask the Universe for help and assistance. Leo and the 5th house are also connected to romance, so you can also make some wishes for Cupid to do its magic!
Sun eclipse in Virgo or in the sixth natal house
We get to one of the true workaholics of the zodiac. Well, we can say that the typical earth signs are definitely quite industrious and they may have a tendency to put their jobs before anything else. Now, about the solar eclipse in Virgo. If you wish to take advantage of this cosmic energy, you can perform your manifesting ritual around any topic related to your job and work environment. Virgo is more connected to your day to day job. However you can also set some bigger goals about your overall professional career. So, if you wish to achieve anything in the realm of your work – a better job opportunity, better work environment, a bigger salary, etc., this may be a good time to get some help from the Universe. Moreover, the sixth sign and the sixth astrological house are related to our wellbeing as well. That means that if you want to make some improvements in that area, make sure you include these wishes and intentions. Remember, action is required! Virgo is a sign of being organized, punctual, and meticulous – this energy will give you the strength to start building positive habits that will improve your wellness and wellbeing over time.
Solar eclipse in Libra or in the seventh natal house (the Descendant)
We come to the zodiac sign and the astrological house related to relationships. Libra is ruled by Venus, and so you can use this celestial event to start manifesting new positive and beneficial relationships. Anything regarding these topics will be at focus during the solar eclipse is Libra or the 7th natal house – finding your significant other, getting married, improving your love and romantic life, etc. However, do think in more general terms. The seventh house is connected not only to our life partners and spouses, but also business relationships and associates. Also, the seventh zodiac sign is related to the symbol of Lady Justice, so this would be a good opportunity to set intentions around fairness, decisiveness, and generally making the correct decisions in life. Oh, and speaking of decisions, you can definitely check out the Human Design system which heavily revolves around this topic.
Sun eclipse in Scorpio or in the eighth natal house
Ah, Scorpio – the magnetic and mystical sign of the zodiac. I think the eighth astrological sign has a bit of a bad rap. However, I do think that is bit too much and exaggerated. The Scorpion is the symbol of deep transformations, and that’s exactly what the manifesting process is – changing from the inside out so that our outer world would reflect the metamorphosis on the inside (our beliefs, emotions, perspectives, attitudes, etc.). So, I do think that a solar eclipse in the eighth house or in Scorpio would be a good time to set goals of radical changes in any part of our lives. Of course, since this sign is also related to intimacy and reproduction, this area would be at focus during this celestial event. Finally, here’s another detail I think it’s extremely important. The eighth house is also tightly connected to the banking system and generally dealing with other people’s finances and assets. So, if you think of a goal in that area (becoming debt-free, for instance), this may be a good time to focus on manifesting it.
Solar eclipse in Sagittarius or in the ninth natal house
Sagittarius and the ninth astrological house deal with the topics of foreign lands, long-distance travels, higher education, philosophy, etc. So, in case of a solar eclipse in the ninth house or in the ninth zodiac sign, I would definitely try to focus on performing a manifesting ritual around some of these areas. For example, finally setting sails towards that exotic destination that you had been drooling over for quite some time or getting that diploma in your chosen area of expertise, meeting new friends or potential partners from around the world, etc. I think anyone can think of a dream or a goal related to this field.
Sun eclipse in Capricorn or in the tenth natal house (the Medium Coeli)
Oh, my! A solar eclipse in the highest point of our birth chart – the tenth house, also known as Medium Coeli (MC for short) or Midheaven (MH)! And as I mentioned previously, this position can be interpreted a bit similarly to an eclipse in Capricorn. So, I think this celestial event would be a great driving force towards success, career advancement, improving your social status, or getting your name recognized. Think about Capricorn and the MC point as your highest achievements in life. What do you want to be known for even after your physical existence on Earth is over? Let your imagination run free – this is a time to set powerful intentions. However, remember that the ruling planet here is Saturn. And Saturn demands a strong work ethic, hard work, and discipline. Being in touch with reality and working within the limits of our physical existence should be taken into account. Lastly, your relationship with your father may be at focus here, and if you wish to make some improvements, now is the time. Again, as with any relationship topics and challenges, I would definitely try the family constellations method for making radical and profound changes!
Solar eclipse in Aquarius or in the eleventh natal house
Adulthood often comes with sacrificing the relationships with some of our friends for the sake of tackling our responsibilities (raising a family, working hard to pay the bills, etc.). So, if you deeply desire to get in touch with these old acquaintances or make new positive and beneficial connections, this may be a good time to ask the Universe for some assistance. Moreover, Aquarius is the sign of the unorthodox, and if you have a specific out-of-the-box wish, this may an excellent opportunity to set the universal forces towards that goal. Also, the eleventh zodiac sign is connected to the area of democracy, politics, humanism, all kinds of inventions and technological advancements, etc. If these fields interest you in any way, if you have anything that might benefit the human kind in any shape or form, use the solar eclipse in the eleventh house or a solar eclipse in Aquarius to bring it into fruition more easily!
Sun eclipse in Pisces or in the twelfth natal house
Lastly, we have the solar eclipse in the twelfth house or a solar eclipse in the sign of Pisces. This is a very interesting configuration and I think it would be extremely intriguing to anyone who is on their personal spiritual quest! The twelfth astrological sign is connected to our subconscious mind, our intuition, spiritual practices, empathy, care-taking, etc. So, if you are interested in these fields, this may be a good time to set a powerful intention to go deeper and achieve more in these areas. For instance, if you are a religious person, this eclipse may be a golden opportunity to get closer to God or the Source and get a better feeling of connection to the infinite. Or if you are more into the New Age part of the spiritual spectrum, this may be an awesome time to work on your liming beliefs and moving towards some more constructive and beneficial statements that would work on autopilot. Also, think about anything that is related to expressing compassion and care, and you can perform your manifesting ritual around that as well. For instance, doing humanitarian or social work, tithing, donating, etc. If you work in these fields (such as being a nurse, a care-taker, a social worker, etc.), your professional life may also be the focus of your wish-making rite.
The solar eclipse ritual supplies
Affiliate disclosure: the following links to the Amazon store are affiliate links and commissions are earned.
Here’s a list of some items and supplies which would help you out in this manifesting ritual. These are definitely not mandatory, but they certainly make a big difference. Because after all, at the heart of any law of attraction practice is the energy that we put into it – we show the Universe that this is something important to us and we are ready to receive it! So, here are my suggestions for some very interesting tools which would add a more relaxed, positive, and sacred ambience to the whole ceremony!
This Solar eclipse manifesting practice is not the only sacred ritual we can perform to bring more happiness, success, love, and luck into our lives! Our ancient forefathers have been using all kinds of benevolent spells to amplify their energy and impact. And now is the perfect time with the current New Age movement to get back to this old-time wisdom and learn more on how to bring this benevolent witchcraft into today’s modern-day lifestyle! This book will teach you how to set powerful intentions and learn how to build magnificent altars, how to incorporate the Moon phases for even more successful manifesting, and how to stock up your witch pantry! Follow the steps of the ancient Wicca practitioners with more than 130 spells and charms for romance (for example, there is a very cool getting over someone spell), abundance (like the growing riches spell), and success (such as the workplace peace spell), and more!
This book is one of my favorites when it comes to combining astrology and the law of attraction or how to use the energies of the celestial bodies in the Solar system to boost our ability to materialize our desires. And at the beginning of this article we made a brief comparison between the New Moon phase and the Solar eclipses which have some resemblances. So, this astrological manual by Jan Spiller can be an extremely useful guide to focus our energy in the right direction and manifest the life that we want more quickly and effectively. In other words, we can use the zodiac sign in which the Solar eclipse occurs and use its typical characteristics and the area it governs to set powerful intentions in this field. For example, a Sun eclipse in Sagittarius would be a wonderful time to make wishes on the topics of education, travelling around the world and visiting exotic places. Or a Solar Eclipse in Taurus would be perfect for performing a ritual for manifesting more material abundance or buying real estate, etc.
Another cool thing I would suggest anyone has for all of their manifesting practices is a high-quality journal. There is something magical about putting pen to paper and telling our subconscious mind and the Universe we are serious about changing our lives for the better! This item would be perfect for writing down your goals and dreams; creating small-scale vision boards with beautiful pictures and symbols; identifying and re-wiring your liming beliefs; crafting positive statements, mantras, and affirmations; using it as a gratitude journal; a useful tool for tracking our spiritual progress, and so on! There are so many wonderful practices and exercises we can do with such an exquisite notebook! Plus, I really like the thoughtful and symbolic decoration with colorful gemstones representing the seven chakras of our energetic bodies – it does look like a sacred spell book for manifesting the life that we want using our inborn magical powers!
At the core of any manifesting practice lies one fundamental principle – it is all about vibration. Every tool and every ritual that we use serves one main purpose – to alter our vibrational signature for a long period of time which would bring into manifestation the reality that we desire. Because reality may very well be (as many quantum physics specialists suggest) a hologram – an illusion which represents materialized vibration. So, everything that we do in our efforts of creating a better life for ourselves must come from this understanding. In other words, all that matters is how a particular thing makes us feel; because emotions are energy in motion – they are telltale signs of our current vibrational state. That is why my next suggestion for something useful for every sacred ritual that we perform is this amazing herbal supply kit for modern-day witchcraft. Plants have a vibrational signature of their own and that is why they have been used in all kinds of ceremonies and sacraments. And that’s what we aim to do here – clearing out stuck and low-level energies and inviting more positivity and empowerment. Because, as many law of attraction teachers would say (such as Bashar, for example), reality becomes much more pliable and malleable only when we come to the high-level frequencies of love, appreciation, enlightenment, happiness, excitement, clarity, acceptance, etc. You get the point! :- ) Note: I would definitely add a special fire-proof bowl for burning herbs to make the set complete!
This option is the ultimate upgrade to the previous one – a complete spiritual and manifesting kit. The bundle has not only the aromatic and energy-cleansing herbs (Sage, yarrow, St. John’s wort, alfalfa, blessed thistle, red rose petals, hyssop, comfrey leaf, lavender, mugwort, nettle leaf, and raspberry leaf) but also a set of gemstones and crystals (Agate, amazonite, amethyst, aventurine, fluorite, garnet, labradorite, lapis, rock crystal, rose quartz, tiger eye and snowflake obsidian) for even better energy amplification along with 12 colored candles, 12 pieces of parchment paper (for writing down intentions, goals, dreams, affirmations, etc.), and a special flower of life crystal grid at the back of the package! But also, keep in mind that there are a few things missing (in my humble opinion). I would definitely complete this set with a special cauldron for burning botanicals (yes, the same as the one from the previous point), and some candle holders, in case you do not have suitable ones in your home. Besides that, the bundle is a wonderful tool for adding a more ceremonial feel to your manifesting ritual and offers a better opportunity to unleash your inner creative power!
This is a different variation of the previous suggestion for creating sacred space with special botanicals. But here you will see that they are formed into the so called smudging sticks. I believe that there is not a big difference whether you choose a smudging stick or a set of dried herbs in terms of the cleansing effect that we strive for. It is a matter of preference and convenience. For example, smudging sticks can be a bit difficult to keep them lit, especially if the plants are not well dehydrated. Also, they need to be snuffed when you are done with the ritual and stored for the next use. For this purpose I would remind you of the special fire-resistant burning bowl you can add to your order to make your life easier in this process. So, if you prefer this method of energy cleansing and vibration lifting, this kit is a great choice. It has all the most commonly used plants for this purpose – White Sage, Blue Sage, Cedar, Juniper, Yerba Santa, Rosemary, and a Palo Santo stick. But that’s not all! The bundle also contains the 3 of the main chakra balancing gemstones (Amethyst, Rose Quartz, and Tiger’s Eye), and if you are a complete newbie in this area, you get detailed instructions on how to use all of these in your next sacred manifesting ceremony! Sometimes keeping things simple is the best way to go!
When it comes to creating sacred and high-vibrational space for your Solar eclipse ritual, here’s another option to do so in a much more convenient way. Well, you may not be a big fan of burning herbs or smudging or you want to further add more positive ambiance. In this case, this slat lamp is a wonderful choice! These amazing and practical items are perfect for everyday living as well as for their magical air quality improving properties. And that’s something extremely important nowadays, especially during winter when we cannot properly ventilate the living space or in urban areas where pollution is a frequent phenomenon. But how does that happen? Well, it is believed that when heated, salt produces negatively charged ions which bond with the positively charged toxins, and this process creates a safer and clearer environment. But even you do not subscribe to these claims, these salt lamps can still be beautiful gentle sources of light and practical essential oil diffusers which would create a more relaxing and redolent atmosphere to your spiritual practices!
And speaking of aromatherapy, you can definitely get yourself such amazingly practical tool for everyday life, not just for your manifesting rituals! As opposed to the previous suggestion, this item is a bit more suitable for homes which are frequently air-conditioned or situated in hot and dry areas. And that’s because this is not just a cool natural herbal extract diffusing device, it also works as a wonderful humidifier! Again, I would strongly recommend having one of these gadgets if you live in a dense urban area with lots of traffic going around, and during the cold months when the heating is on – it will definitely add pleasant aromas around the house and create a peaceful meditative atmosphere for your manifesting practices. And as we have learned, it’s all about raising our vibration by increasing the positivity inside and outside of us! This means engaging all of our senses in this materializing process (or as Joe Vitale calls it “nevillizing” – a term he coined in his book “The Attractor Factor”) – beautiful sceneries, enchanting aromas, relaxing sounds, comfy fabrics, etc.
I will continue to re-iterate that our energy and energetic frequency that we emit is at the core of every successful manifesting practice. All the rituals, all the ceremonies, and all the tools that we use are simply mediums for achieving this one main goal – elevating our vibration and matching it with the desired manifestation. That’s it! But it is easier said than done! We know how quickly we fall off the wagon and get back to old habits of reacting to what’s happening outside of us, rather than consciously choosing our preferred emotion. And here come the tools, supplies, exercises, and practices to bring us back to that emotion of love, happiness, gratitude, and enlightenment! And undeniably, music is one of the best methods for improving our mood, relieving stress and anxiety, and getting back to our natural state of peaceful bliss. That is why I think that such a compilation of relaxing music for the soul is an absolute must for (and before) any manifesting ritual to attune our frequency to the highest possible levels! You can use this CD on a regular basis for your daily dose of yoga, breathing exercises (pranayama), meditating, or simply unwinding after a long day at work!
And finally, my last suggestion for a very cool and useful tool you can definitely grab for yourself for easier and more effortless manifestations is this vision board kit. Again, it all comes down to our day-to-day vibration or the average frequency that we exude which brings us closer (or farther away from) our desired reality. And vision boards are extremely effective because a lot of the information that we receive in our brains comes from visual stimuli. Hence, we can use this to our advantage and frequently look at beautiful imagery which represents the stuff or the experiences we wish to materialize. But please note that it is extremely important to remember the main goal here – to achieve the emotion or the feeling of your desire. So, this means that it is absolutely necessary to pick images which “speak” to your heart and evoke a positive sensation in your body (usually in the heart area – you will get this warm and fuzzy feeling or the sensation of expansion in your chest). Hence, this kit is a wonderful tool to get you started since it includes all kinds of symbols and pictures you can put into use. You can even use the Bagua schematic from the ancient Eastern system Feng Shui and arrange your desires in the appropriate areas they belong according to its methodology. And remember, you can always change and tweak your vision board as long as all of its compounds evoke positive and blissful feelings in you! Psst! I will take the opportunity here to share with you a little secret – manifestations from the heart happen way more quickly than the ones from your mind! 😉
The solar eclipse ritual itself
Alrighty! I know this is the juicy part you came here for!
- First, check the Ephemeredes to see when the next Eclipse or Solar Eclipse combined with New Moon are (such as these).
Mark it in your calendar beforehand so that you have time to prepare. As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, we have some business to do before the ritual as well, such as finishing some old projects or fulfilling some old promises or obligations.
- Create the necessary environment.
It is best to have some quiet time in a room where you won’t be disturbed. I encourage you to prepare your environment and create sacred space where your mind, body, and soul will feel relaxed and open to the new positive experiences that you want to bring into your life. This is not an absolute must. However, I do think that inviting this sensation of sacredness and a shamanic type of ritual, will have a positive effect on our subconscious mind and make it much more cooperative in this process. It is like saying “Pay attention! This is important to me and I am serious about bringing this dream to life!” I do think that the Universe responds to our actions, and going that extra mile makes all the difference! So, what you can do is clean up the energy with some sage, light a few candles, put on some soothing music, use high-quality premium class materials, etc. Whatever resonates with your and your personal preferences. That is why I made that list of useful items you can heck out and see if any of them would feel appropriate for your sacred solar eclipse ritual.
- Then you can write down your desires on a piece of paper.
It may look something like this: “I accept these gifts or even something better from the Universe for my highest good and for the highest good of all concerned. Thank you!” It is advisable always to include the karma-free clause (“…for my highest good and for the highest good of all concerned…”) to avoid doing harm to yourself or others with your good intentions. Yes, our actions have consequences, and in many cases we do not know whether something we want would beneficial to us or the others in the long run.
Feel free to tailor your desires according to the zodiac sign and the astrological house in which this celestial event will happen. I dedicated a whole section in this article to make things easier. You can check it out HERE.
- Next, write down the date, your name and signature at the bottom of the list.
Keep the paper somewhere safe away from other people’s eyes and let go of your attachment to the result. Note the date on your calendar and re-read your wishes a year later to see which ones came true or which one sprouted some “roots”.
- Visualize the end goal!
The visualization process is very important and helps with our manifestations tremendously. The goal is to get into the vibrational level of your desires to bring them to life more easily. So, what you can do is sit down comfortably, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Make sure you relax your body and release the tension in the muscles as much as possible. Now, visualize what it would feel like when the goal is achieved. Make the imagery as vivid as possible and try to engage as many of your physical senses as possible.
- Visualize the process!
This is something which is not talked about very often. I do think that this element of the manifesting ritual is crucial and this is what would make or break the whole endeavor. What I would suggest you do is map out an example trajectory or a possible pathway towards your goal. I know, I know, the how is the realm of the Universe. However, I have noticed that many people (including myself) have had a difficult time manifesting a lot of desires for one simple reason – they remain wishes, not intentions. Action, and the willingness to take action is required to materialize our goals, so we need to show to our subconscious mind that we are serious about this, not just daydreaming. So, try to visualize as best as you can a possible step-by-step process of how your dream may come into fruition and visualize yourself taking action. This achieves two main goals:
First, you can identify a possible mental or emotional road block which is pulling the brakes on your manifesting process and causes you to unconsciously sabotage yourself. For instance, let’s say that you have a dream of buying your own house. And as you visualize the process, you discover that you have a deep fear of signing a mortgage. Now, manifesting your house may not require working with banks, but the very possibility that you might need to sign this contract may cause you to block your way towards your goal. This deep fear will be mudding your vibration and the wish may not come true, or it may not come true that easily. Identifying and transforming these fears, anxieties, beliefs, and mental blocks is crucial for the materialization process to work. At this point, my most favorite tools for working on these are the family constellations system and Emma McAdam’s exercises.
Second, visualizing the process helps us take the necessary action. This is probably the most important part of the manifesting process, in my opinion. I call this “physical affirmation”. By taking actions (small or big), we affirm with our behavior that we are serious about this, and this is not just wishful thinking or daydreaming. There is an awesome saying that is absolutely applicable in this situation: “God helps those who help themselves.” This is how I interpret this formula: first we need to show God (the Universe, the Infinite, our sub-consciousness, etc.) that we actually intend on bringing this thing into the material world. Then, and only then the universal forces will start feeding us ideas, synchronicities, possible pathways towards our goals, resources, helpers, etc. After that, if the intuition says “Yes!” to a particular opportunity, we can include it in our visualization practice and tweak it accordingly. In my experience, the manifesting process is a lot like molding clay.
But we need to take the first step.
OK, that’s what I have for you on this topic! Wish you lots of wonderful wishes come true and happy manifesting!
