The Alchemy of Change
Today is the eclipse. The window of transmutation has been in effect since 2017 with the Great American Eclipse that occurred on August 21st that year. It will end with the Greatest American Eclipse on April 8, 2024. Today marks the final warning flag. Our time to shift is growing short.
The eclipse cycle is a little understood mechanism by which things “change.” Transmutation is the foundation of alchemy — turning gross matter into the gold of spirit. It is the step-by-step transformation we experience with each realization that this place isn’t what we were told, we aren’t who we were told. Every ah-hah moment turns the spokes of a wheel deep within.
“Mom, what’s happening,” asks my second the youngest daughter.
It’s 2017 and I’m stuck in a dream I can’t fight my way out of. I know I’m dreaming because I can see myself in the dream and my hair is on point. People are walking around outside looking up at the sky. We’re climbing the hill next to our house to get to higher ground. There are dozens of families standing together at the top…all staring at the sky. The dream never reveals what we’re looking at.
This lucid dream began an often overwhelming avalanche of vision-clues leading me along a path of personal transmutation. It staggers my heart and mind at how much has changed since 2017. I know I’m not the only one. You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t feel the same. I feel your pain too. We’ve been on our knees, gutted from the inside out.
Every single thing that has happened in your life has been leading you to this moment. Your path has split dozens of times over the last six years and it’s about to diverge again. Today’s eclipse is another notch in the spoked wheel….who knows how many others will tick by in the next 177 days.
I often struggle to express what I experience in the spirit realms—the imagery is fuzzy, experience meshes with imagination and quantifying the journey can be difficult. Fear of judgment and disbelief have held my words in captivity for years. I’m feeling different after the death of #1. I’ve spent the last 10 days in mourning…the first time I’ve ever granted myself an official grief period. Thank you to everyone who reached out to me, your words of comfort and encouragement helped keep me afloat.
