Most of us have heard about a full moon eclipse or a lunar eclipse – but what exactly are they? Have you heard about Super Moons? These are when tthe moon comes closer to earth so it appears larger to the human eye. For the last few years (since the beginning of this decade) there have been many moons described by astrologers as Monster Moons, Blood Moons, Super Moons and Lunar Eclipses.
The last Monster Moon tore through me like a fire in a dry forest, it burned me to my very core and shattered everything I had been hoping and praying for. It was just as I was beginning to blog – and thankfully, I still have the memories of that time, enshrined here, forever.
At the time, I was completely distraught. In all my years on the planet – this was the worst thing that ever happened to me. I had a very bad break up and I can’t and won’t go into the details. But it nearly killed me – well, not really. But it sure felt that way. I thought I would die from a broken heart. I mean, I literally felt actual, physical pain for weeks on end.
A lunar eclipse…And then it started to lift.
It was a great time of self-discovery. I have gone through periods of intense pain before, of loss, of separation, of ‘poverty’ (well, as poor as you can feel living in a country like Australia) and of utter, sheer desperation. That’s the worst part – when you feel that there is something you need to do – but you’re not sure what.
Out of respect for my current partner, I will not dwell on the past. The only thing I can say is “Take Heart”. Even if you are having the worst breakup of your life – there is a new tomorrow. Maybe the best is yet to come.
For me, I exchanged a relationship that I was clinging to for uncertainty. The break up was not my choice, from an outer point of view. Perhaps it was my soul crying out – because now I am happy. Now I am living the life I always wanted to – and it’s so very simple. Or it’s not, but you see, I struggled for so long. To use a very indelicate expression, I felt like I was
“Pushing shit uphill.”
Anyway. What I mean was that before, everything was a struggle. Everything was hard. Nothing flowed. Nothing was easy. I held on and on, hoping for some sort of resolution – hoping against my better sense – but that’s what you do when you’re in love – as I was at the time.
I don’t understand why I had to go through what I had to go through – except to say that it has made me a better person and a better partner. The place I am at today is where I have always wanted to be. I am happy, truly happy and I do not regret the past. I am glad for it – because it brought me to where I am today.
What do lunar eclipses mean?
“During an eclipse period, the power of distressing energies increases by 1000 times as compared to other times,” says the Spiritual Research Foundation.
They give three main points here:
- An eclipse is an important spiritual event that has lasting adverse effects that are capitalised upon by ghosts.
- One needs to take all spiritual precautions especially if the eclipse is visible over where one lives.
- Regular spiritual practice done throughout the year, helps to reduce the adverse effect of an eclipse. In addition if one does intense spiritual practice during the eclipse it can even be positive, so far as individual spiritual growth goes.
I really do not fear ghosts, or even think they are real. I have heard lots of theories on ghosts – but I do acknowledge that ‘bad energy’ does indeed exist. Read the whole post I have linked to – it is very interesting!
