Feeling like your energy is off? You might want to consider the impact of the solar flares expected to hit the earth today! The energy of the sun is powerful and as healers, empaths, or anyone sensitive to energy for that matter, you are going to feel that energy.

The effects of cosmic events such as solar flares are different  for each person but for sure if you a sensitive to energy you’re going to feel it in some way, shape or form. You may have trouble sleeping or feel a bit “buzzy”. For some, the extra energy will cause pain or illness to suddenly “flare up” among other things.

The flare, called a “coronal mass ejection” actually happened on Tuesday and hit Earth’s magnetic field at its heaviest last night and this morning. It is expected to cause problems with communication systems as well as GPS and navigation. Any time the earth’s magnetic field is affected like this so to are our bodies and energy systems.

If you’re used to running cosmic and earth energy you’ve already felt the indirect effects of the flares since Tuesday. This is not something you can fix or solve but it helps to be aware you are getting hit with a lot more energy than usual.

There are a couple of things you CAN do for the next couple of days to calm your energy. One is to turn it down. Set the intent when you’re meditating or running energy to bring in only what you need. It’s also a good idea to check your grounding and bring in more earth energy to balance out the magnetic shift. Check in with yourself to see what feels right to you. Be gentle with your body since it is directly effected by the earth’s magnetic field.

On a bright note, solar flares bring beauty to the earth. Depending on where you’re located the Aurora Borealis has expanded its field of view. Check your local “star-gazing” site to see if you’ll be able to watch the Northern Lights shimmering low on the horizon in your area. Meanwhile check in with yourself, turn it down a bit and re-ground! ~Shine Your Light Debbie

MERCURY RETROGRADE: Use it to Your Advantage!

Once again Mercury, the planet ruling of all forms of communication, intellect, commerce and technology, begins its retrograde phase. Perhaps you’ve already been feeling the effects of this upcoming phase. You may be forgetful, have technology challenges or notice a lot of mis-communication. Mercury goes retrograde three times a year and in my opinion has gotten a bit of a bad rap.

Yes, there are communication issues, you shouldn’t sign a contract without checking and double checking the details (it is not advisable to sign anything during this time but if it’s unavoidable do your best to be mindful of the fine print) lest it have to be re-negotiated, and technology challenges arise at every turn but you are actually receiving a gift. Mercury retrograde gives you the opportunity to review all the details that have led you to the present moment. Take this time and use it to your advantage!

Going backwards to move forward…

How can you possibly use it to your advantage when things that were once flowing seemingly coming to an abrupt halt? Well, that’s exactly HOW you use it to your advantage!  When Mercury goes retrograde you have a chance to re-visit energies and heal those things you may not know consciously are still unresolved. You might start thinking about past events, hear from an old beau or notice you are in a challenging situation very similar (or exactly the same) as something that happened in the past. When this happens, not “if” but “when”, you can heal it because you now know it wasn’t cleared up or there is stuck energy still needing to be released or resolved. With awareness this is a time clear blockages and receive a tremendous healing.

The slow down or halt of those things that were flowing nicely is also a gift. Use this time for rest and rejuvenation. Reflect on what’s been going on, how you’ve handled yourself, the choices you’ve made and go within to reconnect with your passion and spirit. Our daily lives move so rapidly that sometimes we put things on the back burner, so to speak. Review what has happened, clear the energy, forgive yourself and others then move on to plan for the creative endeavor you put away until further notice. Mercury retrograde is the “further notice”! This slow down gives you ample opportunity to fine tune, re-connect with spirit, heal and re-visit anything and everything you’ve shoved into the closet in the back of your mind. You don’t necessarily want to start anything new until after March 17  (allow one week after for the energies to settle) but you can certainly put your plan of attack on paper!

You can even use the technology breakdowns to your advantage. if your computer crashes you might just have to pick up the phone and actually speak to a human being instead of the email you were going to send. If technology goes haywire and you can’t send an important document or report, review what you were working on. You may find an error you previously missed or a paragraph that could use clarity and this gives you the chance for a complete or partial ‘do over’ if necessary. Of course we love our Facebook, Twitter and the like but if for some reason you are dis-connected from your social media, you now have the time to get connected with yourself again! You have time to meet up with a friend in person or better yet before you go out take time to meditate!

Use this Mercury Retrograde time wisely and to your advantage. Take a step back, allow for a much-needed break, heal, reflect upon what you’ve accomplished and put your goals for the future in order. Take a deep breath, clear lingering blockages and let go. Review, renew, reflect, reconnect, notice where your attention has been and get your space back. ~Shine Your Light Debbie
