A once-in-a-lifetime solstice~ time to connect

December 19, 2010

Have you ever waved at the moon, fancying you can see your shadow waving back? How about doing this when you can actually see a lunar eclipse as it happens, the earth moving between the moon and its source of light, the sun?

The last time I viewed a full moon lunar eclipse, was last year and as the dark edge of earth moved across the lit surface of the full moon, I waved. Can one be anything but childlike when watching Mother Earth embrace Grandmother Moon? Can you ever forget moments of such perspective?

On Dec. 21, 2010 the day humans call the solstice, winter will enter the northern hemisphere and summer, the southern. This happens every year. But this time, all of earth will experience a once-in-a-human-lifetime event: a full moon lunar eclipse at the December solstice. According to NASA, the last time this exact event happened was in 1378.

I was moved to haiku:

A Lunar eclipse
Earth moves between sun and moon
See me child, she says

Many are the full moon nights we have seen.
Many lunar eclipses where we have seen the shadow of earth crossing the moon.
But even more significant, many that we have not seen. Either because we are asleep, or uncaring, or unknowing. Or because there is so much pollution that we cannot.

There are many messages, from astronomers, astrologers, psychics, shamans, about the message of this special event. These inform, inspire, resonate or not. But we can always choose to mark these moments in our lifetime, to do something significant, to make our own story about this event.

One of the things I’ll do, is attend the Gaia Minute call,as I do every  Monday.  This time, all who call in for the phone-in-meditation, will share inspiring messages. It will be a meditation guided by each one on the call. I will also attend a ceremony with my Medicine Reiki tribe. We have often been in ceremony together, marking the passages of the moon. There will be sharings on the internet. There will be viewing of the moon just after midnight.

Blessed are the ways in which we can interact. Physical, cyberspace, etheric space, airwaves. All made sacred by the intent to connect to essence.

The earth is always balanced, experiencing all seasons at the same time. Being aware of this, we still experience the season in our own corner of the globe.

What have you decided to do this time?

A once-in-a-lifetime solstice is a time to connect with heart. Which space-time are you connecting with?

    This will not be visible every where and limited to certain countries.
    About full moon, we have a government declared holiday on every full moon here in Sri Lanka. Buddhists and Hindus visit their temple for special occasions like this. It is called ‘Poya’ day in Sinhala.
    Like your enthusiasm.

      Yes, it’s not visible towards the southern hemisphere, and I think also near the Equator. Thanks for pointing it out, Sanmugan.
      How amazing that every full moon is a holiday in Sri Lanka. I wonder if any other country does this.
