The Leo Solar Eclipse on August 11 signifies the opening of a new chapter and the start of a new beginning.
Life is a constant cycle of death and rebirth. We are constantly being encouraged to shed and release and make space for new things to come into our lives. We are constantly learning and growing, and we are constantly being guided to improve ourselves and our lives.
There is high manifestation energy surrounding this Leo Eclipse. After the intense period of cleansing brought about by the Blood Moon Eclipse, this Solar Eclipse is a time to think about what new things we want to bring into our lives.
These things can be a new job or relationship, but they can also be new emotions or feelings. You can call in more love, more light, more gratitude, more freedom, more truth, or whatever it is that you feel you need into your life.
Getting in touch with yourself, journeying inwards and then asking the Universe for what you desire can be so powerful, and here is a ritual to help you do just that-
Leo Solar Eclipse Manifestation Ritual
This ritual is best done from August 10th-21st, 2018
You will need:
- Smudging Tools of choice: eg. sage, palo santo etc.
- One Candle: preferably white but use whatever you have
- Pen and Paper (2)
- Bowl of water
- Colored pens/pencils (optional)
1.) Begin by smudging your aura and surroundings. Start with your aura and then following with your surroundings. For specific instructions read this. As you smudge, recite the following mantras-
Mantra for cleansing your aura:
“I am finally shedding and releasing the last layer of this chapter. I am letting go of all that no longer serves me. I am open, I am bare, I am ready for a new chapter to begin. I am clean, I am refreshed, my energy is a blank slate for a new creation. I am ready to welcome in the new.”
Mantra for cleansing your space:
“The light energy within me, the light energy from the Universe cleanses and nourishes this space. My space is now protected and surrounded only in light and love. My space is now open and cleansed. My space is now ready to welcome in a new energy that is positive and full of love. And so it is.”
2.) Light your candle and place it on a table or on the floor in front of you next to the bowl of water. Have your pen and paper ready. Sit comfortably and take 5 deep breaths in an out to settle yourself.
3.) Place your hand over your heart and breathe here again. Feel into your body, feel into your heart. Notice if any emotions come up and just sit and be at peace with them. Remind yourself it is ok to feel whatever you are feeling.
4.) Now take your pen and paper and at the top of the page write-“I finally want to let go of…”. Don’t think too much about it, but underneath, start writing down whatever words come to your mind. Fill the paper with as many things as you want to let go of. Write whatever words or phrases come to you, don’t censor yourself and just give yourself permission to write whatever you want, even if it doesn’t really make sense. You can also draw or doodle if you like too.
5.) With your page filled, take a moment to reflect on all that has come out of you. Take a few deep breaths here and notice any emotions that may be lingering. When you are ready, take one final look at your page and begin ripping it into thick strips.
6.) As you rip the page, recite the following mantra-
“With each tear I am letting go. With each rip of the paper I am freeing myself from all that no longer serves me. I am letting go, and I feel free.”
7.) Now, take each strip of paper and place it carefully into the flame of the candle. When the strip gets too hot to hold, drop it into the bowl of water. Repeat this process for each strip of paper. Please be careful!
8.) When ready, take your fresh sheet of paper and write at the top- “This is what I want to bring into my life…” Now repeat the process by writing down whatever words comes to your mind. Feel free to draw, decorate or write whatever it is that you want to manifest or bring into your life. Fill your page with whatever emotions, feelings or opportunities you want to create. Feel free to use colored pens, pencils if you wish.
9.) Once finished fold up the paper three times. Holding the paper in your hands, recite the following mantra-
“I have made my wishes and they are now coming true. I have made space for the new and I am open to the blessings and gifts the Universe has in store for me.”
10.) Blow out your candle and leave your paper in a special place or by your bedside. In a few months, or even in a year, you can look back on it and see how your manifestations have come true.
Happy Solar Eclipse!
