The Great American Eclipse: Now What?

A big thank you to Greg Stratton for generously sharing his eclipse photos with us for this post!

The eclipse was full of miracles and certainly a day I won’t forget. I believe the biggest miracle was the powerful energy transmission itself surrounding the eclipse. This massive energetic download brought about a change in our world from the Third Density foundation of fear to the higher frequencies of Love found in the Fourth Density. Effectively that change means our world has been given a “do-over,” a re-set!

While reading the many, many post-eclipse reports, not only from many of you but also in the news and hearing about people’s responses on television, I recognized another miracle: throughout the eclipse, and especially during totality millions of people were happily—consciously—looking away from their day-to-day experience and looking up to the sky. During the time they were looking up they weren’t being stressed, negative, angry, and otherwise fearful, but most were instead experiencing a shared, positive consciousness of awe and joy with everyone else who had taken a few moments to watch the moon cross our sun.

To add to that miracle, while those positive thoughts in awe of nature’s wonder were being experienced by mass consciousness, at the same time powerful energy transmissions were being released into our world! I can only begin to imagine the results of this happy collision between millions of positive-thinking Americans and an energy transmission designed to change the very foundation of our world! No wonder Samuel called the eclipse an Activation Gateway for our world!

Right now we have just come through the peak of that cosmic energy (from August 18–24), actually the energy release has been affecting our world since early August and will continue throughout September. Even if you “missed” the eclipse experience, you (and the world) are still receiving the information download, which I consider yet another miracle—it’s “a gift that keeps on giving.”

However, it’s also because that energy flow is continuing through September that the need for us to become a miracle is so vital. That miracle is for us to anchor the energy still coming to earth. Visualize that energy flowing through the galaxy to our sun, through the sun, and down to the crown of our heads and into our hearts. From our hearts see the energy moving into the heart of the planet and back up to our hearts as a balanced flow. Finally, become the miracle and claim that we purposely, as a united whole, function as an energetic balance point, keeping the energy transmission flowing gently into the world. Continue—or start—this vital work now! Everything we do to consciously work in the frequencies of Love will help this world continue with this new Activate on the road to full Ascension.

The last miracle I want to share from this incredible eclipse event has to do with the timeline change Samuel spoke about. He said the energy transmission has caused our old timeline(s) to begin dissolving because now they are without their base of fear to feed them; so we are going to be feeling and seeing more love-based thinking and acting throughout the world, much of which will be centered in the thoughts and actions of US citizens (because the eclipse was in totality over the US). We are now all working on a fresh, new timeline!

So with the miracle of that new timeline our job, he said, is to be sure we are feeding the new base of love, and not the old one of fear. Remember, we experience the reality that occupies the most time in our thoughts, in our hearts, so consciously choosing the loving way to experience the world will strengthen the new timelines and help the old Density with its fear-based timeline(s) dissipate faster.

There were, of course, so many more miracles—the many groups and individuals all over the world doing positive energy work during the eclipse, the event Phoenix Institute created (big thanks to the Eclipse task force, Kathy Adams, Angela Henson, and Suzanne McIntosh for all their good work, and the Lexington Leadership for their part in making the event happen), the multiple stories of synchronicities bringing us together … and those miracles are all the foundation of our new world, our new timeline. What a wonder-full start! Thank you for being a miracle, and being a part of the great miracle that was the 2017 Eclipse!

So, how have you been since the eclipse event? Have you been noticing positive change in your life and in the world? How are you feeling physically, mentally/emotionally, and spiritually now?

    Crystal and I went to Mississippi after the eclipse to visit her sister. While we were there, her sister was backing out of the driveway and backed into the bumper of our car and did significant damage. We decided to stay a little longer and get the damage fixed while we were there. Her sister’s liability insurance paid for the whole repair plus a rental car for us for the four days to fix it.

    Now the bumper had been damaged by the previous owner and needed work. I had done a manifestation to get the bumper fixed with no harm and no cost.

    Crystal had a tooth that had cracked while we were on our trip and needed dental work. Crystal’s sister made an appointment with her dentist and got Crystal in to get her tooth pulled. When we went back several days later for a follow up, tornado warnings were happening all over Hattiesburg. We huddled in the hallway of the dentist office with several other people until the all clear signal went out. Everyone was upbeat throughout the whole episode.

    We had miracle after miracle on the trip. Katie the Doodle was quite the ambassador to all. We stayed fairly balanced throughout all the challenges.

    Next road trip starts at the November Lexington Lifescape. See you all there.

      Hi, and love to you Retta,
      Thanks for commenting. I’ve spoken with several other people who have noticed that manifestations are almost, if not immediate! Keep that great energy going! Love and healing to Crystal’s mouth, and to you both, as well as to Katie, the Wonder Dog!

    I’ve been dreaming like a crazy woman since the eclipse. Normally, I have a very hard time remembering my dreams, but now it’s like a switch has been flipped to the on position. It’s great! Otherwise, I’ve been holding the energy and watching to see how it is affecting those around me. Story: My apt complex management sent everyone a convoluted announcement this week about how we not been billed correctly for water and sewer for several months and now we had to pay extra $ this month. It was a significant amount and it made me mad because it was last minute and they did not fully explain the issue. Old me would have perseverated about it and gotten worked up and written them a letter to lodge a complaint. New me, settled down after a minute, paid the bill and knew that it didn’t matter since I was going to be living in a new place by Christmas. I could get used to this!! 🙂

      Beloved Pat,
      Thanks for commenting! It makes sense stop me that vivid, “real” dreams (as Samuel calls them) would be a part of functioning at a new Density on a new timeline because we have new things to master and make a part of our knowing, which is what real dreams are all about. You are gaining experience and wisdom not just in your waking life, but in your sleeping one, too! Very. Cool. Sorry about the extra water/sewer payment, but congrats on the higher Density attitude about it all! Go, Pat!

    Dearest Lea, your love and inspiration is a precious gift in so many ways, and so very needed and appreciated! Thank you Dearest Heart!

    Since the solar eclipse and the beautiful focus we did together of anchoring the powerful and positive outflowing of energy with love through your/Samuel’s incredibly beautiful ritual (still basking in the beauty and richness of it all!), there have been constant synchronicities! As I maintain a sense of balance and love, life flows with ease and grace. When I slip into old rote patterns – stress and fear based – the discomfort is notably a contraction of my energy. Grace and ease is effortless, blissful, offering greater potential to use my energy for healing and wholeness where ever needed! (Contractions and ease…sounds like a birthing process!!)

    The miracles have also been amazing, both in our country on so many levels as people come together to help and support one another, and other countries coming to the aid of the US and other countries as well! Social media has become a network of individuals offering ways of getting involved that are of greatest support, and places for individuals to find the resources that they most need at this challenging time! It is truly a work of unity, oneness and love!

    Thank you for the many reminders of how to bring the ‘change from fear to love’ into our lives and this world! Your work and love has been one of the greatest miracles of all, rippling out in ways that change lives, hearts, and communities, and ultimately this world. You are a master weaver of Love and Light, and I am forever grateful for you in my life and in this world!

    I Love You!

      Beloved Susan,
      Thank you for your comments, they touched me deeply. May all the love you give return to you in daily miracles of Love! You mentioned synchronicities, which I always think of a kiss from the Universe. Kind of an “mwah! here’s a reminder that every little thing in your life is on the path it should be” sort of thing. I believe the more in-tune we are with our highest frequencies, the more often we have these synchronous moments, so it says a lot that you’re seeing so many. The other thing your comment brought up for me was how something so destructive (like Hurricane Harvey) can bring out the best in people. It’s beautiful–but also dangerous because we don’t want to tell the Universe we need to experience devastation before we function at our best. Still, it IS beautiful seeing the outpouring of Goodwill and Right Action: Love in service to others shining brightly. Like you do!

    I’ve been cooking dinner every night since I got home, and trying to see my housemate in a new, more loving light. Small steps, but a good beginning. I took the family to see the eclipse on the coast of Oregon, a 10-hour drive from San Francisco. It was a glorious adventure! I watched the eclipse from the balcony of a rental resort condo, where the easternmost balcony was specifically reserved for us (and I didn,t even need to ask!). I saw two glorious sunrises and two glorious sunsets.On my balcony, I was serenaded most of the day by barking seals in the marina below. My 12 year old car behaved beautifully! What an altogether lovely experience it was!
    Thanks, Lea, and just keep reminding us about the significance of the eclipse.

      Hi, Jean!
      Your eclipse experience sounds wonderful! I love that it all flowed easily and well—you didn’t have to struggle to make it work out, you allowed and it did. Great reminder, dear Jean, thank you!

    Dearest Ones:

    I was surprised at the grief that came up for me after the eclipse and the complete exhaustion I felt for almost a week. I am happy to say that both have eased and I am feeling much more balanced and well. The other night I was awoken by an overwhelming sense of incredible gratitude pouring through me and out of me for all of the Love in my life. It was the perspective shift that I needed and wasn’t able to get that one part of myself to get to. This came about after really holding myself in great Love and compassion before going to bed that night.

    No one in my circle here in Pittsburgh had this response (or reaction?) and so I started to have judgments about myself and was able to “catch” myself and stop doing it. It just seemed so opposite of the Love I experienced at the eclipse and the expectations that I had (never a good thing to have expectations). My interpretation is that I had work to do with the new energy and I am so grateful for the level of healing that I have been able to come to. If anyone else is struggling to bring balance or healing to some part(s) of themself, please have love and compassion for yourself and just love yourself through it.

    I have been able to forgive someone that I hadn’t been able to fully do so with.

    I have also worked with the handouts from the eclipse a few times and it has helped me tremendously to help balance my energy. I first merge with those at the event and the energy of the eclipse. For those of you not at the eclipse who might be reading this, it has to do with what Lea posted for us to focus on, so if you do that, you will be working with what we did at the eclipse.

    I love you!!

      Love to you, dear Jill!
      Your comments can help us see all versions of the ways we’re responding to these huge changes—and see how to realign with the fourth Density Love. It makes sense to me that grief is part of releasing the old in which our former identity was enmeshed. The key, as you said, is recognizing and stopping the behavior you don’t want, and filling that space with love—for yourself and the world. You are Amazing! Thank you!

    Thank you so much, Lea, for continuing to inspire us, and helping us to stay focused on living a life of love. Much gratitude to everyone for their Eclipse energy work. I leave for Cuba tomorrow to spread more light.

    Love and light to all of you, Brooke …We are great. ….Much joy and laughter.

      Thanks for your loving comment. May your trip to Cuba be filled with magical experiences you’ll always remember! I know you’ll do a great job spreading the Love—it’s YOU. See you in Arkansas!

    The world is witnessing an amazing outpouring of love in the thousands of people who are responding to Hurricane Harvey. Probably the most visable example since the eclipse.

    • Lea Schultz August 30, 2017 at 11:50 am - Reply

      Yes! My thoughts exactly! Thanks for commenting, dear Bonnie.

    Thank you for posting this blog. The information in your message it is both motivating and a call to action. Since the Eclipse I have had a distinct desire to anchor the energy of the density change. I felt an urgent need to see things differently and you message not only confirms my feelings, but gives me a clear direction (road map) on how to work in unity with others to make this change a living reality in our world. Thank you so very much.

    One of the things I am doing is consciously watching the news on channels even the ones I would never watch. I look for ”any” positive words or thoughts or actions that show a change, not the way I thought things should be but positive words free of anger,, fear and judgement. I then send energy to anchor and amplify the positive and dissolve the fear based timeline (of fear) that has been so predominant in our news.

    In my daily endeavors I am also consciously looking for positive change, no matter how small, everywhere I go and with everyone I meet, and I leave tracks of light with every step I take to amplify the energy of the density change. I affirm the density change has happened.

    I am eager to hear what others are doing so that I can incorporate new/additional ideas into my daily conscious living. My heart is filled with joy and excitement for the positive loving changes that are making this world a better place and moving forward to full Ascension.

      Great comments, Katie, thank you! Anchoring the energy, being the balance, choosing to see the positive–these are things that feed the Fourth Density and help dissolve the Third Density fears and lower emotions. Keep up the great work!

      In reply to your questions (and mine from the blog), here’s my example of a positive way to see the massive disaster and relief efforts going on now due to the Hurricane Harvey related flooding in Texas (where I have family). Instead of worry and fret, as I see the difficulties (and yes, suffering) of the people of Houston and the Gulf Coast, I see opportunities for unity that are being taken all over the world with an outpouring of help in all needed forms; I have joy in seeing all the neighbors helping neighbors; I am overjoyed to see pets in shelters with their humans (and all the attention being given to displaced animals, domestic and wild); I am seeing good in this disaster because I choose to. How about you all?

    Thank you, Lea, for creating this article. What a positive vision you provide, and great reminders to us to stay focused in love and keep anchoring the energy as it continues to flow in!

    • Lea Schultz August 30, 2017 at 11:48 am - Reply

      Love and thanks to you, dear Marion! You’re right: staying focused in Love and anchoring/balancing the energy coming in is key.

    Me, I’m still on about my bout of pneumonia – not with the focus on me, but on all the gracious, loving help and concern I received from everyone. I keep saying it, because it’s true: I have felt in the presence of saints!
    Since I’ve been home, with the help of Niki, I’ve been able to rest and not worry about much other than healing. She’s moved on now and I’m much better, bathed in love and healing energy from my spiritual family, and perhaps from beyond our current reach. I love this world. I love this life. I love you all!

    • Lea Schultz August 30, 2017 at 11:49 am - Reply

      We missed you Bob! So. Much. I’m relieved you’re feeling better now. Maybe some of what you went through was a reminder that you’re not alone, your needs will be attended to with Love, and that you really matter to this world … because you do! Keep on healing because we’re looking forward to having you around!

      • Bob Mustin August 30, 2017 at 1:16 pm - Reply

        You’re exactly right, Lea. I’ve been in a rather lonesome space for quite a while, have gotten used to it. But this odd illness was an object lesson to me in Love, in community, in receiving and accepting help when I need it. Thanks so much for you Love and insight.

        • Lea Schultz August 31, 2017 at 10:56 am - Reply

          Dearest Bob,
          Beautiful and helpful insights, Bob. Thanks for helping us all remember the importance of opening ourselves, our lives, to Love from a spiritual community.
