The recent eclipses have caused much of the hidden , both
individually and collectively, to come to the surface. This may have
been experienced as lethargy, lack of motivation, unhappiness, being
unsatisfied with the status quo, and even deep anger and sadness.

Eclipses are a very important Astrological event as they help to
illuminate the shadow side within everything and everyone. This helps
humanity to recognize and release all of the pockets of energy that have
unknowingly been hiding. These pockets can contain things from
childhood, or emotions and feelings from experiences elsewhere in your
current lifetime or even from past lifetimes. If you were someone that
experienced some emotions during the first part of this month, and yet
you could never quite figure out where those emotions came from, this is
because this energy is from your past . Past life
energy is much more difficult to get to the source of because it doesn’t
always make sense in the confines of your current lifetime.

The energy of the eclipses are also helping to change things on a
global scale. The unfortunate events of the Spill and the Oil
spill in ’s Yellow Sea are going to be precursors for change in
that industry. In years to come, these disasters will help people to
remember what was the beginning of change in regulation, finances and
alternate fuel sources and so much more. Just like many other
industries, the Oil companies have been working with the government for
many years, and this event is allowing for this relationship to be very
different in times to come.

Another event that occurred during this timeframe had to do with
unemployment benefits in the U.S. These benefits were withheld from 2.5
million souls due to bureaucratic policies and procedures. This event
had a greater purpose of allowing these individuals to face ideas about
money and worthiness in themselves. Now that these benefits have been
reinstated, many souls will go forward with the lessons that they have
learned from this time. This experience allowed some souls to recognize
that they were giving all of their power away to the government or to
their situation, while others decided to look at their own relationship
with finances in a new way.

Each of these events is illuminating the shadow side of what is going
on, and once one can see the shadow side of things, then that shadow
can be addressed. Look at how that is working in your own life: the
shadow side of you is the part that follows after the guidance that you
receive from spirit, that shadow can be referred to as the Ego or the
self. When a soul get a piece of guidance they are usually very excited
and want to act on it, but then the shadow comes in and says things
like; "But, why would they listen to you?" or "That won’t work", "Last
time nothing happened", and so forth.

Whenever you hear this secondary part to what you are thinking, this
is the shadow side. But, the shadow side is not all doom and gloom; it
plays a very important role in helping you to uncover what has been
hidden. And, if you listen very carefully to what the shadow is saying,
then this allows you to see where the energy still needs to be worked
on.

With the Gulf , the shadow side was that the
has been so focused on profits, that it failed to develop the proper
proactive methods of safety to prevent this disaster. But, thanks to the
shadow being illuminated, humanity can now work on changing this
industry for the better in many ways.

With the unemployment benefits being withheld, it illuminated a
shadow side of many individuals and how they had put their power on the
money they earn. It also illuminated the shadow side of the legislature
and aspects of the earlier bills. This time the bill that passed only
contained what was necessary to provide these benefits, instead of the
add-ons that often accompany such measures.

Illuminating the shadow releases the energy and starts the process of
change. It is up to each individual and group to take the information
that was illuminated and do with it, as they choose. The eclipses help
to bring out this shadow side of things, but those that hear this
message must choose to use that information wisely, or the changes they
wish for will take longer in coming.

Look within, how does your shadow side keep your from ?
What does it tell you? Now turn this information around an use it for
your benefit. If it tells you that you are not good enough, find our
where the source of that feeling is from. It is from your parents? From
an experience in school? From a relationship? There is no spiritual
reason why you cannot accomplish your dreams in life, so thank the
shadow for showing you the source of this energy and use it as
motivation for you to change your life!

Love,
