A Meditation for the New Moon and Solar Eclipse

A Meditation for the New Moon and Solar Eclipse

Tonight and tomorrow all day are very powerful astrological and energetic times for manifesting. It's the second New Moon in Cancer and a Solar Eclipse.

The New Moon is in effect tonight 11:36 p.m. through tomorrow midnight, and the Solar Eclipse is a total eclipse at 6:30 a.m. Eastern Time.

We would like to share with you a simple new-moon/solar-eclipse Manifesting Meditation which you can do alone or with others.

First, sit silently for a few minutes centering within yourself. Put your hands on your belly or your heart and take a few deep breaths into these areas to bring more awareness into your body and quiet your mind. When you feel ready, write down up to 10 things you would like to see happen in your life. It could be anything, but at the same time be realistic about your wishes. Use affirmative language and be very clear about what you want.

After you have finished, you can read your wishes aloud to make them more clear for yourself. As you read try to feel all those things as very possible and tangible, while releasing the details of how to get there, leaving it up to the special magnetism of this astrological time to draw it to you. You will begin to receive clues as to which actions to take in order to materialze your visions in the days and months to come.

My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464.
