I watched the solar eclipse earlier this week. In my area, the Sun was 99% covered by the Moon. I was amazed at how much light the Sun continued to shine onto the Earth. What power.
The Gayatri mantra is referenced in The Book of Runes by Ralph Blum under the rune of Sowelu which signifies Wholeness, Life Force and The Sun’s Energy.
“Sowelu counsels opening yourself up, letting the light into a part of your life that has been secret, shut away. To accomplish this may call for a profound recognition, for admitting to yourself something that you have long denied.”
Spirit, god, goddess, the universe, your own name for the Unseen is asking us to go deeper within to embody the wholeness of who we truly, completely are as spiritual beings having a human experience. From the perspective of astrology the energy of this eclipse may be calling you in these ways for several months.
Consider adding the Gayatri mantra shown in Ralph Blum’s book to your daily meditations. While reciting the Gayatri, visualize the sun’s rays streaming forth into the world, entering your heart, then streaming out from your heart’s center and back into world.
“You who are the source of all power
Whose rays illuminate the world
Illuminate also my heart
So that it too can do your work.”
