NASA cameras captured images of two large solar flares on June 10, 2014. The first of the two explosions was classified as a X2.2 flare, which is considered to be “unusually” bright, according to NASA. C-class flares are small, M-class flares area medium sized while X-class flares are the biggest and can have significant effects on earth such as disruptions in high frequency radio communications. Though they pose no considerable threat to us, considering the massive bursts of radiation these solar flares emit there may be more nuanced effects that we can experience. Energetically, the microcosm on earth is directly connected to that of the sun. Cyclical in nature, the activity on the suns surface has been correlated by some to significant events on Earth.
Several scholars and spiritual figures have commented on the correlation between increased solar activity and our current transition from the age of Pisces to the age of Aquarius. This shift is resulting in a transformation of our vibrational energies. Yogi Bhajan, a spiritual leader and practitioner of Kundalini, has commented that the increased solar activity is connected to the little sun within our own bodies, ie: the solar plexus chakra.
‘So our little sun in the navel (solar plexus ) is awakening and flaring up to melt those frozen parts of ourselves that at we have denied – suppressed – forgotten. Those emotions didn’t just appear out of no where – they have been locked inside you for a very long time.’
According to Bhajan these changes can effect your personality in the following ways:
- increased sensitivity
- sleep problems
- weird body pain that comes and goes
- ringing in the ears
- blurred vision
- moments of disorientation
- overwhelmed by anger
- fatigue and exhaustion
For people who have not been in touch with their emotions, this time can be specifically tumultuous since the movement of these energies can cause emotional upheavals. Furthermore, people can often feel victimized by their emotions.
In order to mitigate the effects of these energy shifts, it is important to monitor our reactive behaviors and reduce them as much as possible. The ego will be focused on the external, keeping your mind on the ‘effect’ end of the spectrum and not the ‘cause’ end of the spectrum. Feeling things may be out of control, it is important that you control these emotional stirrings. This will be extremely difficult since our ego has a tendency of blaming the way we feel on the external, ie our friends, our bank accounts, our food, our parents etc.
There are several tools out there to battle your ego, it is important that you research them. If you feel like you are loosing control or that you have a general uneasiness, feel free to try the breathing exercises linked at the bottom of this post.
As we enter the Aquarian age it is important to note that we now have increased responsibility as a unified soul and that we all adopt the moniker of ‘healer’ and ‘teacher’. We come to understand that the enemy is within, and that our battle is not with the external world. As we realize our own reactive nature we are able to gradually remove these negative traits and allow ourselves to be in full contentment.
