Lionsgate and Lunar Eclipse Ritual August 2017

eclipse lionsgate ritual 2017

August is a turning point month that is going to bring rapid growth and change. From August onwards, time is going to feel like its moving faster and we are all really going to be guided to leave the past in the past.

August is also a month of ascension and awakenings, so it is likely that we are all going to be able to advance our consciousness, or our spiritual understanding in some way. Often when awakenings or ascension first happens it can feel like a shock and sometimes we need time to process this new way of being.

All of this energy can lead to feelings of exhaustion or energy levels that feel all over the place. It can also lead to a desire to make abrupt or long needed changes in life.

Even though we all have our own journey, it seems that some of the key themes for the first part of August, under the influence of the Lionsgate Portal and Lunar Eclipse, is learning how to feel grounded in oneself, to let go and open the heart.

By doing so, it will allow us to access the amazing energies of the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse, which happens later in August on the 21st.

The following ritual is designed to help you release and ascend, but it is also designed to bring restorative energy into your soul. This is a gentle ritual that will help you to feel more centered amongst all of this moving energy.

The ritual is best done on August 7th or 8th, however you can do anytime from July 29th to August 15th. During this window in time, the Lunar Eclipse and Lionsgate Portal energies are at their strongest.

Lionsgate and Lunar Eclipse Ritual for Restoration August 2017

You will need:

  • A candle
  • Your favorite crystal
  • Your favorite essential oil (or you can substitute with coconut/olive oil)
  • A small bowl of water

1.) Light your candle and set up your crystal, oil and water so they are in easy reach. This ritual is best done on the floor so you may want to have your ingredients resting on a mat or towel.

2.) Close your eyes and take 8 deep breaths. Holding your crystal, begin gently rubbing it between your hands. Keep rubbing your crystal while breathing in and out. You should feel heat generating between your palms and the crystal.

3.) Once completed, take a 1-2 drops of essential oil or regular oil, on your finger and place it on the back of your neck in the dip where your spine meets your head. This is a powerful energy center of the body and is known as the cerebellum chakra. Note: if you have sensitive skin, mix your essential oil with a carrier oil before applying.

4.) With the remaining oil that is left on your fingers, take a deep breath in and out so you can get the smell moving through your senses.

3.) Next, lay down in a comfortable position on the floor and place your charged crystal either over your third eye (middle of forehead) or over your heart center. Use your intuition to choose the best spot for you. Then, place your left hand over your stomach and your right hand over your heart (on top of the crystal is fine). Take 8 deep breaths here again to still your mind.

4.) Then, on every exhale begin chanting the mantra “I release” in your mind. Chant the mantra on every exhale another 8 times. Make your exhales powerful and long, and visualise releasing all of the muck and energy that is weighing you down. Ask your angels and guides to help you release all that is no longer serving you.

5.) Next, take your attention to your crystal and feel it pouring white light into your energy center and through your entire body. Then, on your next inhale begin chanting the mantra “I accept” in your mind. Chant the mantra on every inhale another 8 times, as you do this, visualize the healing energy from the crystal nourishing, recharging and opening your third eye or heart center.

6.) Once completed, open your eyes. Dip your fingers into the bowl of water, stand up and starting at the top of your head, begin making a flicking motion with your fingers, moving around the entire outside of your body. This flicking motion is cleansing, protective and restorative. As you do this flicking motion around the outside of your body, repeat the following or write your own-

“Dear Universe/God/Angels, I am whole in myself and in my heart. I ask for your guidance in gently removing things from my life that are no longer serving me. I ask that you help me to accept my current situation, so I may feel nourished, restored and at peace. I know I am loved, I know I am supported, I know I am protected.”

7.) To close the ritual, leave your crystal out to charge over the Eclipse/Portal period, you can also sleep with it next to your bed. Leave the candle burning for as long as possible- of course, do not leave lit candle unattended.

    what time would be optimal to do this ceremony? 11:11 or 4:10am (full moon rises, in the middle of the luna eclipse in Melbourne Australia)

    • you can really do this ritual anytime throughout the day as the energy will still be potent. The Eclipse is at 4:11am Melb time so that would be a good time, however I personally think its better to wait a few hours after the midpoint to see what arises. I feel doing the ritual on the tail end is better but i have no reason for thinking that way, it’s just my “feeling”…i guess i feel that the energy has had more time to do its work and i can better understand it? hope that helps!

    I did my ritual Just like u said on the night of 8/7… I lit one tall white candle and two small ones. After my ritual I started feeling very anxious, about 5 minutes later … I felt tingly all over my body and when I looked up one of the small candles was lit very high.,. And was touching the white tall candle… I have never seen my small candles light up like that… my room was filled with smoke..then my anxiety went through the roof… I felt like I was going crazy… like out of my body… I felt extremely anxious I can’t explain it but it did not feel good. This was the first time I’ve done a ritual… but I did get a little scared. Was this a good thing or a bad thing? I will say that this year has been extremely lif changing… but I’m not sure what all this meant. Plz help ❤️

    • mmm i would say the energy may have just gotten a little too intense, it’s nothing to be worried about at all. I would just do some sort of cleansing ritual for yourself to help clear any stagnant energy and help to lift the uneasy feeling. Just be gentle with yourself, there is a lot of energy swimming around so go easy on yourself 🙂 lots of love and light. You can find some suggestions here-

        Thank you so much … I also cleansed my place with sage 🙂 but I was given a pendulum…. is this safe… I don’t want bringing in Negative vibes…

        • pendulums are fine, you can sage it or put it out in the sunlight charge if you feel nervous about it.

  • Annie

    This was so healing! Thank you! And when I laid down to do the ritual, my big orange tabby (my little lion) laid down with me to provide some extra lion energy 😉

    • awesome!!! glad you both enjoyed it 🙂

    Does this have to be done daily throughout august or just on full moon’s?

    • this ritual was designed to be done around the time of the full moon and lionsgate portal which occurred 7th and 8th. It definitely does not need to be done every day, in fact that would almost be too much I think! We are actually shifting into a new phase now with the upcoming solar eclipse and i will be creating a new ritual for this energy soon! If this ritual resonates with you, by all means go for it, but the energy has shifted 🙂
