As everyone is entering this “eclipse” extravaganza, I thought it would be interesting for us to talk about the things we SEE and DON’T SEE in the context of LIFE, LIVING and our place in this world. 

How is your life obscured by a shadow?

How are YOU and your truth/authentic-self actually falling into obscurity or decline? 

Not sure?  Let me bring some direct light on this situation so you can gain some clarity and insight. 

Much of our life as humans and souls we vacillate between the lightness and darkness in full contrast of what everyday life presents to us and for us in our state of being. 

For most, there are things, which resonate or do not.  Some things are either absolute or defined or the extreme opposite of a tangled complex mess.  While the majority of most people fall in the in-between grey areas, there is always that epiphany of light, which comes through like a beacon in the shadow of chaos. 

Our life is comprised of these various eclipse moments for LEARNING PURPOSES…life lessons, and opportunities for growth.  Quite often, we don’t have to go ‘seek out’ said life lesson curriculum – but rather things will arrive ‘just in time’ for us to learn what it is we are supposed to learn as if by serendipity in order to handle what is just around the corner for us to tackle head-on. 

In my last blog Removing Your Worry Link in the Hands of Time
I discuss the concept of time not really being real, but rather our perception of it is how we see its existence. 

When we look at an eclipse (not directly of course without proper viewing precautions), it is evident that WE KNOW WHAT EXISTS BEHIND THE ECLIPSE….  It is an actual TANGIBLE thing to grasp, right?

However, when you examine your own obstacles of your life, sometimes it is not so easy to decipher what the obstacle is (in reality) or if you just put a road block there by your own assumption of what has to be there so you don’t have to go through the road.

*SMILE* … Yes, I see you.  

When we enter our truth zone, we will see that our heart, mind, and soul know what it wants.  Sometimes the human will put a roadblock there for perceived safety-sake, justification-sake, or even procrastination in dealing with confrontation of perceived outcome in order to avoid going out of the comfort zone.

I know…  You are standing here totally in a reality pool with all of that I just shared. 

  • Do not worry… you are not here alone. 

  • No one sees you as weak. 

  • No one thinks you are fearful and NO, no one is judging you. 

Those who are, only deflect because they do not feel comfortable themselves.

Those who GET YOU and SEE YOUR SOUL, KNOW BETTER.  Trust in that.

I will tell you that those who comprehend what they ‘don’t see’ are part of your own tribe, because they understand there may be things going on behind the scenes, which you cannot yet share. 

Those who do not understand, have not yet walked in similar shoes of experience, and that is okay – everyone has to ‘get it’ at their own pace.  Their life eclipse situation may be timed differently.  However, where the timing is right – that is destiny anyway.  

For all the rest … This is human behavior – most of it is not even your fault, but your pre-programming in order for you to move and navigate yourself through the solar system of your life lessons.  That is why you are here – to do just that. 

This is what I was talking about with how the lessons come directly TO YOU automatically with every challenge that crosses your pathway. 

Like an eclipse, there is movement.  No one stays in the dark forever.  Most of life’s challenges are passing through.  When you overcome them, you feel victorious for having survived, endured, and graduated from the challenge.  This is what life is all about. 

The key to all of this?

  • ·         Do not sit in the shadow of doubt

  • ·         Choose to bask in the light

  • ·         Know that the eclipse is fleeting and temporary – sure it’s happening, but it will pass through

  • ·         Marvel at the benchmark moment because it is rare you get to see such a spectacle in life --- I am not talking just about the eclipse here, I am also speaking of the moment you walk through any challenge – you will never be the same again.

  • ·         Understand that there is beauty in what is seen and not seen

  • When in doubt – ask for help with how to navigate your life’s challenge/obstacle.  It is really a very simple thing to do. WATCH VIDEO:

With that said, I am going to challenge anyone reading this to go to or and ASK a question, ask for help with a life lesson-learning question.  

If you are too shy, go ahead and Direct Message (DM), me behind the scenes if you do not want to ask your question publicly, and I will answer your question as best as I can to assist you through your temporary life eclipse. 

Remember – change is a constant.  Moreover, like any eclipse, we can benefit from what it teaches us about moments, life and the things, which occur, and pass by.  All through this, we learn about something bigger than ourselves and it is here we can gain the tools to overcome what is in front of us that we can see and prepare ultimately for what we do not. 

As everything happens, be sure to enjoy what is in front of you now and be present for all of it.
