A high-speed stream of solar wind is approaching Earth. ETA: June 15-16. The gaseous material is flowing from a southern hole in the sun’s atmosphere and could spark high-latitude auroras when it arrives.
Solar wind doesn’t disrupt the electromagnetic field in the same way a CME does, although they still can cause geomagnetic storms, especially at the poles. When solar wind hits us, it is an invitation from our higher selves it get more into alignment. This is more than just grounding (although that’s certainly part of it). This is connecting our hearts to the higher hearts of the Earth and the Solar System, trusting that this will align us with the even higher hearts of the center of the Milky Way and the center of the Universe.
On a spiritual level, the planet Earth can be seen as an aspect of the higher self of much of humanity. The sun can then be seen as a higher aspect of self, as it’s the heart of the solar system; there is a strong connection between Sol and our own hearts. So when the energy from the heart of the solar system bombards the higher body (and our bodies, too, but I’ll get to that in a moment), the body becomes overly sensitive. And as above, so below – we get more sensitive too. Solar activity that spikes, whether it’s a solar flare or solar wind, can make us jangly, sensitive, easily distracted, and generally overstimulated. Conversely, some people feel super tired, especially if they were already run down or fighting off a bug. Big feelings may come up. We’re more prone to accidents, big and small.
On a purely physical level, when we are bombarded by solar activity like this, even by a minor storm, it affects the electromagnetic field of the planet, which, in turn affects our personal electromagnetic fields. When your electromagnetic field is hit like this, you might feel more easily overwhelmed; some people get amped up, others need more rest. If you, like me, have issues with electronics, those issues might be heightened.
When solar wind hits us, it is an invitation from our higher selves it get more into alignment. This is more than just grounding (although that’s certainly part of it). This is connecting our hearts to the higher hearts of the Earth and the Solar System, trusting that this will align us with the even higher hearts of the center of the Milky Way and the center of the Universe. Since Mercury is in retrograde, this is also an opportunity to use the enhanced alignment to make sure you are on Your Path, and to make some course corrections if you’re not.
As with pretty much any practice, I recommend starting with some form of grounding. Make sure you are fully connected to the heart of the planet.
The next step is modified sun salutations – reach up and grab the energy of Sol and pull it down through your crown chakra and into your heart. Feel the connection, and then send it down into the center of the Earth. You can either do this three times, or, on the second pass, grab the heart of the Milky Way and the heart of the Universe on your third pass, grounding the energy each time into the heart of Gaia.
And how do we take up this opportunity to correct our course? Start by doing the above exercise more than once a day. Focus your attention on the positive possibilities of what our society can become. I’m not saying saying you should ignore the current events; merely that you should not allow them to disempower you. Some people, obviously, have more luxury to avoid disempowerment, and it up to those people to work to move society into a better future. So the less threatened you are on a person level by world events, the more obligation you have to your fellow beings to stand up and say, “not in my name” and offer positive alternatives and solutions instead. If you don’t know what those alternatives and solutions look like, ask the people who are being more impacted by the problems in our society; hey very likely have a lot of information that can share with you. You might even start by doing some Google searches for the information, so as to not add to the burden of the people who are already under so much stress.
You can further mitigate the physical and emotional side effects of the solar wind:
