The coincidence of a Total Solar Eclipse with the New Moon (first day of Lunar calendar month) tomorrow, Wednesday July 22nd, is an opportunity to improve your success. In tough economic times like these it makes sense to take a rare opportunity to shift the energy to positive.
According to the Chinese Almanac, it is the last Lunar First in this summer period that is of the Fire Element. In the current double-earth Ox year that started on 2/4/09 and ends on 2/3/10 sluggish energy prohibits real growth and breakthrough. The Fire Element summer months this year allow for greater vitality. If one uses this period wisely to plant the seeds of growth and improvement, good things can happen.
In particular, when it is a spiritual date like the Lunar First aligning with a solar eclipse, intention through prayer could be particularly powerful. The magnetic energy that effects the metaphysical significance of a spiritual date can shift the momentum of things in your life if you prepare yourself and do the right thing before and during that day.
Many astrologers foretell of terrible misfortune like natural disasters, war and violence from a solar eclipse, but in my view, “That is already our reality for some time already, so?” As a Feng Shui and Chinese Destiny Reading master, I want to shed some light in a day that many mystical traditions perceive as very negative:
In the past 35 years of working with my clients and my father, Master Tin Sun’s clients to help them get in the driver seat of their own lives, my goal to give light in times of darkness. Timing for the portal to shift our reality is upon us, so, as a good deed, spread the word so that more people may maximize the positive instead of succumbing to fear and negativity.
According to Lunar calculation, 11pm tonight, Tuesday July 21st is the moment of the shift to the Lunar First that begins the July 22nd calculation in the solar calendar. We can improve the vibration of the world through each of us by tuning in to the divine connection in all – in whatever spiritual or religious tradition is one’s practice. Please set up a prayer altar before that time and be there receptively in time to accept the transition. Hopefully, you know the good Feng Shui meridian position of your space and use this as the channel into the spiritual side of you peacefully. Unfortunately, not enough people had Feng Shui done from the authentic form that helped you to identify the strength of your location base on the Earth Energy and your individual Five Element energy. Maybe now, you would do something about it so that you don’t miss the next chance like this.
Today, buy your flowers, fruits or whatever you need that can help set up a sacred prayer space or altar. Calmly organize them in a nice way so that it is in front of your spiritual symbol at home you use for prayer or on a table in front of the windows to the sky. If you don’t have a table in the right spot to elevate this prayer position, put a new cloth over the offerings.
Before 11pm, be in a prayer position and start your gratitude prayer – so that your prayer doesn’t turn into a “Wish List”. State your name and offer thanks to the divine blessings for everything, smooth or not, ideal or not because they helped shape our character and paid back karmic debts. After the prayer of thanks, you could then mention the few reasonable, fair wishes you hope to achieve and most importantly, what your contribution back to the world and others will be. I can’t stress enough the importance of delivering on the promise once you achieve your goals. Often people neglect this. When you make a pact – whether with people or the divine forces, borrow and repay gives you the credibility that you can borrow again. One should not be the selfish self of just ask and never return. My Catholic background that evolved to Buddhism and universal belief has me know the importance of never take any blessings or lessons for granted. Having the grace to accept our reality after we made the effort to improve is the “50% divine plan” that is our destiny according to Chinese wisdom. Make peace with it.
Embody virtue through responsible thoughts, proper action, kind temperament and words,… all increase our vibration so that when we pray and ask, the divine connection would be there for us. In general and especially on this Wednesday. think nice, be nice and speak nicely. This way, when you tune in through your prayer to shift your reality, you are an open channel to receive divine energy. Would you remember to ask for world peace, too?
Blessings to you all!
