events like that that happen so rarely certainly deserve our attention. the physical act of the moon crossing in front of the sun and blocking it’s light is very impressive to see. and then there is so much happening on the energetic level, the stuff we do not see but perhaps we feel at some level depending on our sensitivity. I listened to an amazing podcast all about this solar eclipse and it’s meaning and impact – truly fascinating stuff. at the end of the podcast, which was about 30 minutes long, all respect and credibility was lost when the person giving the podcast said to her listeners that to navigate through the strong chaotic energy brought upon by the eclipse, you can eat meat. for any of you reading this blog if that is confusing to you, meat is considered grounding food by some belief systems out there. look closer at the word BELIEF…do you see the word lie ?! troubled by this comment I decided to email the woman whose podcast I was listening to. and this is what I wrote:
I just finished listening to your podcast on the lunar and great American solar eclipse – someone close to me sent me the link after we were talking about the upcoming eclipse. it was my first time listening to you and your podcast was so interesting, fascinating really, and so well done. thank you for that. You have a beautiful voice and your words resonated with wisdom, truth, and sensitivity. That is, until the last 2 minutes. Up until that point, I was ready to share this link with so many other people and to book an appointment with you as I have been wanting to have a birth chart reading. But your comment at the end about eating meat shocked me. as a vegan and someone who is in the healing field as well, I do not understand how you could even suggest that your listeners eat meat and condone this act. Firstly, call it was it is, eating dead animals. To me this is a crime, as horrific as suggesting that someone eat a human being. Both are a violation of our true nature for we are not carnivores or even omnivores. There is nothing spiritual or evolved in this act of eating dead animals. It is a crime in my opinion. And violates the laws of nature. Suggesting we do so or may want to do so – and so nonchalantly as you did in your podcast – is so inappropriate. Have you considered the fact that your audience might include vegans or vegetarians? Perhaps even raw vegans like myself ? Vegetables and cooked food are grounding, and you could have easily suggested that instead.
I hope you can receive this message with the love and compassion that is intended. I hope you are able to receive this message with an open heart and that you can let go of any belief you might have that eating meat is healthy acceptable or even necessary. It is none of the above. I hope that this new energy brought forth by the universe guides you to the vegan path. for if you truly want to help people heal and help this planet heal, you must be aware of the impact of your actions and start with what is on your plate.
Thank you for you thoughtful response……and. Am sorry to have offended you…I am an acupuncturist ….and this is part of our training……I understand our strong convictions…and am sorry that this means you do not want a reading…..Many blessings,
You see my readers, this is her training. she was trained as an acupuncturist that eating meat is grounding and so she believed. many alternative and ancient healing systems are based on beliefs and theories. they may sound interesting and even “make sense” to you on some level. however, it does not mean these systems are right. the mind is very powerful and can convince you of anything. and then of course you can change your mind.
I am inviting you to realize truth. I encourage you to dig deep and realize your true nature. the only way to do that is to be with nature. to spend time in nature and observe. and apply what you learn from your observation. remember who you are and know all the answers lie within.
