The Spiritual Significance of a Lunar Eclipse On The Full Moon

Spiritual Significance, Nature, CeremonyChloë RainComment
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

The Full Moon is a perfect time for releasing something that no longer serves you; or letting go of something that you no longer need in your life; or an opportunity to let go of an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown.

Combined with the energy of the Lunar eclipse on the Full Moon this will be an extremely powerful time for starting again and setting your intentions for the coming six months.

This is a time of leaving what is safe and comfortable in order to grow more fully into yourself.

Eclipses are harbingers of change — they usher in evolution. At a lunar eclipse, the shadow of the Earth falls across the face of the Moon bringing unconscious feelings to the surface, grounding them in reality. Lunar eclipses are culminations of emotional cycles that have run their course, and they encourage us to let go of emotions and attachments that are no longer serving us.

Lunar Eclipses are viewed in astrology as being deeply transformative times that can bring abrupt and sudden change. While this is true, there is another side to Eclipses that is important to remember.

Eclipses are like the cosmic helping hand of the Universe. Imagine the energy of an Eclipse like a Universal hand that reaches down from the heavens and puts you where you need to be.

The good thing about Eclipses is that generally you can trust the direction they are guiding you in. Eclipses bring about events that are part of the cosmic plan. These are important times for thinking about your life, whom you need to forgive or what you need to let go of and move on from. 

Eclipses are rare because they can only take place when the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are all aligned. They always happen in groups of two or three. A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon and the Sun are on exact opposite sides of Earth.

Endings are necessary in order to make way for the new and a Lunar Eclipse is like the final purge. If something needs to be gone from your life, if something needs to come to an end, an eclipse can help you to set the wheels in motion.

EMBRACING CHANGE & HONORING LIFE CYCLES

Every single full moon brings a chance to embrace changes, let go, and cultivate greater connection with the Divine. I believe we can experience connection with the Divine by simply being mindful and present to the cycles of nature, the seasons, and life all around us.

By developing a spiritual practice that is founded in earth based wisdom and honoring the cycles of the moon and seasonal cycles of change and growth we can live in greater peace and harmony in our daily lives.

The full moon is the time to release attachments or blocks and barriers to our worthiness, and open ourselves to greater abundance and inspiration.

Whatever you needed to let go of, whatever changes you needed to make, an eclipse on the full moon can help you to release and let go and open to the new. 

Doing a small personal ritual on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, like lighting a candle or writing an intention down on paper and burning it, can help you to engage the energies of release and usher in new changes.

The energy of this Lunar Eclipse will last until August and will open a new gateway of energy that is productive, active and positive. Change is constant.

We talk about growth and change and letting go of the things that no longer serve us with hope. But the reality is, change is uncomfortable and can bring up a lot of fear of the unknown.

We like things that are familiar and comfortable, even our worst habits can be serving us in some way by keeping us small and comfortable. Real change requires us be conscious of our emotions and feelings. We can step into a new way of being by honoring and recognizing ourselves and the natural rhythms of life.

Trust whatever is unfolding in your life as natural to the cycles of transformation and change and know that it is all for a higher purpose.

Your Authentic Self : Guided Meditation [Free Audio Download]

Be who you want, Healing, Inspiring, Learning to Love YourselfChloë RainComment

At your fullest potential...with no fears...

Who are you?

Listen to the guided meditation above, where you will connect deeply with your authentic self and receive renewed enthusiasm for being just who you truly are. (Less than 45 minutes in entirety.) You may also download the audio to listen on your own time and use the questions below for reflection.


May you be blessed with the peace of knowing your authentic self deeply.

Turn your attention inward...even more deeply inside...to connect with your authentic self.

What is most important to you in life? What do you value? What makes you happy? What makes you smile? Can you remember the last time you laughed?

Now consider what makes you who you are. Finding your authentic self involves learning who you truly are. Your authentic self is the real you, the person you are truly meant to be. Your authentic self is the person you are at your core, the person you can be if nothing holds you back.

Imagine the person you believe yourself to be right now. Now imagine you could strip away all the things that hold you back from your full potential. Imagine self-doubt dissolving...being replaced with confidence and self-assurance. Imagine all the things that get in the way of success...such as circumstances, lack of resources, lack of forgiveness, illness, baggage from the past...anything that is holding this person back in any way at all...

See these problems dissolving...disappearing...going away...

Now imagine yourself, standing in the empty room. What is left? Who are you when all those barriers are stripped away?

This person is you. Imagine who you are at the core...the pure character that is left when there is nothing to get in the way of complete self-expression.

Think of your desires...what motivates you? What drives you to get out of bed in the morning? What interests you and stirs your heart?

Think about your personality and your personal identity... think about the characteristics that are left when all barriers are removed and all fears have gone away.

At your fullest potential, your simplest form...with no fears...who are you?

Think about your energy...

Imagine something that makes you feel happy...what is it?

Think of some things you enjoy...things that you like to do...

Think about all the characteristics of the person who is left when all barriers and fears are removed.

Now create one final picture in your mind. Imagine, in as much detail as you can, the person you want to be. Imagine your ideal self...

How would this person behave? What does this person, your authentic self, value? What motivates this ideal self? What personal characteristics are present in this ideal version of you? Imagine all the details of the person you most want to be.

The image in your mind right now, of this ideal person, is YOU.

This is your authentic self. This is who you are. At the core, beneath all of life's getting in the way...this is you.

Now allow yourself to step inside this image, and fully become this person. Become who you are.

For this moment, just be...simply be your authentic self.

You have always been this person...you always will be your authentic self...a positive, confident person. Underneath the challenges, the baggage, the demands of living life...this is the real you that will always be with you.

Keep the image of your authentic self with you as you go about the rest of your day. Express this true self...and allow you to simply be you.

Thank you for being you. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

With Love,

There is only one person who can end your suffering.

Be who you want, Healing, Learning to Love Yourself, Life LessonsChloë RainComment

The present moment is the only moment available to us, and it is the door to all moments. We tend to think that there will be a point on the horizon that once we reach, we will have finally "arrived."

But there is no such point out there on the horizon. The only point you ever have any power or control over is this moment. This moment, the one you're in right now.

Instead, we make ourselves jump through hoops before we allow ourselves any satisfaction or self accolade. Because of this, we often put ourselves and our happiness off into the future.

My big hang up has always been that when I meet my soulmate and get married, then I will be truly happy and fulfilled.  But the truth is I have had many soul mates in my life. My relationships have gotten progressively healthier and more rewarding, but all of them have taught me something wonderful about myself.  

No matter what the destination and the timing of our arrival, life always seems to have its challenges. I don't know why that is... I wish I could change it most times.

Sometimes I see and feel so much suffering, I wish I could take it away and save another person from their own suffering.

I’ve learned, however, that isn’t what's best for us. In the long run, taking away someone else's suffering will only create more suffering, for me, for you, and for them.

It seems like an odd lesson, but perhaps one of the most importants one we can learn.

There is only one person who can end your suffering.

That one person is You. 

We must learn to release our own suffering for ourselves.

It's best to understand and embrace this about life, from this place of acceptance, there will always be challenges there will always be opportunity for growth and change, there are always infinite possibilities and potentialities available to us in every moment.  When you start living from this awareness life opens for in ways you could never have imagined.

Life is what's going on right now. Are you happy now? If not now, then when? 

When you lose the ten pounds, when you have the sculpted arms and impress people with your headstand in yoga class? When you get married, when you get divorced, when you lose the baby weight, when you have another baby?

When you write that book, when you beat that time, when you get that promotion, when you change your career, when you break six figures, when you retire, when you have that new car, when you buy that house, when you pay off your mortgage?

Maybe Friday, maybe next summer, maybe this fall, when you sober up, when you have that drink, when you quit smoking, when you finally get over her, when you finally get him to notice you?

If not now, then when? When you feel better? When you’ve got more money? When you feel less tired. When you’re dead? When?

When we embrace true presence and grasp that this moment is the only place and time in which we have any influence or choice, we begin to experience that sense of inner peace that we’ve been chasing.

Not sometime in the future, but now. Then it begins to seem as if each challenge adds to the suspense, the chaos, the possibilities, the romance, the adventure, the joy and the mystery of life.

When we grasp that this moment is the only place and time in which we have any influence, we begin to experience that sense of inner peace.

Here's to your infinite miraculous expansion.

In love and service,

Awakening is not a thing. It is not a goal, not a concept. It is not something to be attained. It is a metamorphosis. If the caterpillar thinks about the butterfly it is to become, saying ‘And then I shall have wings and antennae’, there will never be a butterfly. The caterpillar must accept its own disappearance in its transformation. When the marvelous butterfly takes wing, nothing of the caterpillar remains.
— Alejandro Jodorowsky
