The July Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer is going to be activating waves of change. You are going to be guided to awaken and shift parts of your life that need an update or an upgrade.
Eclipse energy is always potent as it helps us to elevate our lives to that next level.
Trying to resist or fight the energy is not going to help, instead you have to surrender and allow yourself to be guided.
Know that you are protected, and know that even though challenging things may surface, you are moving closer to being more alive, more aligned, and more in-tune with your true self.
In this ritual, we are going to be working with the Crown Chakra which is the highest point of our energetic body.
By working with this Chakra, we can allow ourselves to be guided by the Solar Eclipse and we can open ourselves to the wisdom and guidance of the Universe.
Cancer Solar Eclipse Crown Chakra Ritual
This ritual is best done from July 10-21st, 2018
You will need:
- Smudging tool of choice
- Coconut oil (or any oil works fine too)
- Sea salt or Himalayan pink salt
- Your favourite essential oil
- Mixing bowl and spoon
1.) Lay out all your ingredients in front of you. Begin by smudging your aura and then the ingredients and space around you. (More instructions on how to do this here.)
As you smudge and cleanse yourself and your space, recite the following mantra or write your own-
“I am cleansed and I am open. I activate the channels of light within me. I activate, I open and surrender myself to the Divine Universe. I know I am safe and protected. I know I am free of all that I no longer need to carry. I release. And my light shines brighter.”
2.) Take 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil and place it into the bowl along with a sprinkle of salt and 1-2 drops of your favourite oil. Mix it together. As you prepare the mixture, think about what support you need the most in your life right now.
Imagine that the Universe is granting you one wish or a helping hand. What would you ask for assistance in right now? Don’t overthink it.
3.) Once you have identified what you would like support with, hold your hands on either side of the bowl and state out loud what you would like support with.
Eg. “Divine Universe I would like a helping hand with….”
4.) For the oil mixture, you are going to pour and massage it over your crown chakra. If you would rather not pour oil on your hair/head you can also massage it into your heart chakra or solar plexus chakra.
5.) Take your oil mixture and stand in the shower (naked works best so you don’t get oil on your clothes). Place your hand on top of your head and breathe here for a moment. Visualize a beautiful white light coming out from the top of your head. Visualize your crown chakra opening and pouring white light up, down, and all around you.
6.) Once you have a strong visual, take both your hands and begin making a sweeping motion. Almost like you are moving the invisible light energy down your back and around your body. Take your hands and sprinkle and spread that white light all over your body. Follow your intuition here and sweep the light using your hands in any direction that feels right.
Imagine the light healing, opening, and restoring you. Imagine it cleansing you and aligning you so you can receive the wisdom of the Universe.
7.) Once you have spread the white light all over, think about your wish from the Universe and quietly repeat to yourself- “I am open, I am ready to receive. Thank you. Thank you.”
8.) Now take your oil and pour it over the top of your head, right on your Crown Chakra. (Or rub it into your heart/solar plexus chakra). Massage the oil into your scalp and just take deep, relaxing breaths as you do this. Feel the healing nourishment of the oil cleansing and restoring your Crown Chakra and your hair which protects and receives so much intuitive energy.
Note: the shower floor becomes really slippery because of the oil, please be careful!
9.) Once the oil is all massaged in, repeat the following or say whatever you feel in the moment-
“Thank you Universe for opening and guiding me. Thank you for providing me assistance with….”
10.) When you feel ready, wash out the oil with shampoo or if you prefer you can leave it in your hair to soak as a hair treatment before washing.
11.) After cleansing away the oil, place your hand back over the top of your head and imagine your are sealing up your Crown Chakra just so it stays protected. You can visualize a beautiful golden mesh sitting at the top of your Crown Chakra that only allows love to flow, nothing else. Recite the following mantra three times-
“I am cleansed and restored. Only love flows. The Universe is by my side and I feel supported. My energy is protected and I feel relaxed and in tune with myself. Only love flows.”
Bonus Step: If you wish, you can also meditate or do free flow journalling session after conducting this ritual to receive guidance and to clear anything that has come up to the surface.
Happy Solar Eclipse!
