Dancing with your Shadow and the Eclipse

Conversations with Kuthumi and Celestial Companions

I AM Kuthumi, and I come forward upon the Rays of Love and Wisdom to greet and gift unto thee a blessing of awakening.

Dearly beloved beings of the light, the dimmer and the brighter, for beloved ones, it is all Light!

We deliver a message of inspiration and hope extended through the frequency of Love. Feel this, as you open yourself up to embrace the Love extended to you from All That Is. 

The essence of light and dark is a topic for intense discussion which we shall touch on over time. You recently experienced two eclipses. For this discourse, your sun is the essence of light and energy that brings forth its magnificent vibrational frequency to enhance all life on Terra Firma.

Known as ‘the star of your system’ it brings all to life (light) and when ‘blocked off’ by the moon, even though there is the ‘shadow’ that passes across its refection, it by no means lessens its light, nor slows down its life-giving frequency.

Symbolically and metaphysically the darkness that slides across the light is a metaphor for your own life, a time of cleansing and purging. It is a time to release the ties that bind you to the past, or that anchor you to a restricted space that prevents you from bursting forth to recognise the immaculate self, which in fact you already are.

This energy requires an in-depth ‘checkup’ creating a ‘checklist’ of things that you feel are still not within balance, thus we suggest that you also hold these intentions for humanity and your planet. You also experienced the intense frequencies of ‘death and rebirth’ with Easter the reflection of death and Wesak reflecting birth.

A room is only dark until you light a candle which holds the frequency of vision. You have within the self various energy bodies (chakras) and within your auric field and even more etheric bodies. Your physical acts on the etheric and the etheric reflects your physical and, through that entire system of light, you shine like a beacon, the most beautiful, brightest light, no matter whether your candle is lit or not, as that light is you. This light is noticeable wherever you go, day or night, at times of joy or darkness, thus that which you may perceive to be ‘a time of shadow’.

The shadow only extends as far as the light allows it to. When you allow the reflection of the light from your sun to cast your shadow onto the earth, once the sun sets that shadow is no more, yet its reflection remains (metaphor), thus, as I always said, learn to dance with your shadow.

There is such controversy at this time when it comes to the outplaying of light and dark. It is therefore imperative, especially at times of despair, to understand that ‘darkness’ has no hold over you, it cannot ‘do’ anything to you, except that which you allow it to.

The codes of expansion
The earth receives her energies from the sun, even during an eclipse, thus its frequencies extended to you never diminish nor wither. It is up to you to integrate, work with and embrace this and, through dedication, allow the self to expand from it. Work with the codes of expansion within The New You meditation that we took you through a number of years ago, which we will soon repeat. Always hold the frequency of Light and Love in your heart no matter which of your darkest hours you are facing. Within darkness there is immense light. Within complete blackness (as in the void), there is light. That light is you. It is therefore pretty obvious that at times, when venturing into these deep levels of ‘extended’ consciousness, you must never fear, for within any and all darkness, YOU hold the light.
This transformational time you are in asks you to get excited! Pay attention to ‘key date’ events as integration and manifestation are powerful! Hold in your heart the dream essence that you wish to create and let this become your reality! Bring this in through the third eye and express it through the heart, always. At times like this the energy around the planet becomes so amplified and powerful that it allows you to move into a deeper understanding of the void, the veil, the abyss, of all which ‘presumably’, according to you, separates you from worlds within worlds.

Senses and the sun
We move amongst you, yet your lower senses may not agree. The five senses of human awareness that you have been blessed with, are the most exquisite tools extended to humanity to navigate the self through a survival and expansion system. When combined with extended knowingness such as the elements (earth, water, fire, air and ether) you step through gateways of consciousness which previously prevented you from tapping into worlds beyond worlds.

This powerful opportunity again repeats itself from the middle of July through to mid-August, and again later in the year when eclipse season returns. 

Eclipses are an extremely important time of introspection, fine-tuning your desires, wants, manifestations, bringing all of that which you desire to the table as you place your order within the proverbial ‘universal kitchen’, setting the intention for it to come into being. Do not allow your shadow self to overshadow you in the sense of fearing your own darkness, as fear fuels just that! 

The planet needs your love, you needn’t ‘save’ it, nor the humans on it, save yourself and all is transformed! If one person at a time commits to bring their energy into a new frequency of balance and alignment, all is ‘saved’! You are beautiful beyond words, and no matter your beliefs about the shadow within, the light that shines within as without, always prevails.
When facing what you term to be your shadow, how do you feel about it?
What would be the first thing that you think of as I speak these words?

I guarantee you the first thing that comes to mind, is usually the last you should fret about. It sets the self in retrograde so to speak. Move the last to the top of the list and all is transformed and anew!

Within tiny crevices of consciousness and brain function, there too brew pockets of darkness as you avoid shining your light upon it, yet when doing so, your biggest drawback becomes your inspiration for complete transformation. 

Instead of fearing or complaining about the dark, cast you light upon it! Use your positive frequency to dissolve the negative connotation surrounding that which you profess to be of the dark.

Let me clarify here, in this discourse I am not discussing evil, I am speaking about your shadow, thus that which you need to face, for very often within that shadow ‘hides’ the greatest gifts! Always remember, you are an extension of Creator Light; you cannot exist without it!

Embrace your shadow – activation
Visualise yourself standing outside, with the rays of the sun bathing you from behind, casting a shadow of yourself ahead of you. Pause. Once comfortable, allow your shadow to become an extension of you. See yourself manifest as yourself within your shadow self.


Visualise your shadow getting up from the ground, standing facing you.


Extend your hands towards your shadow and, where the light and dark come together, it creates a magnificent frequency of LOVE, like electrical sparks! See these sparks of light travel into your shadow and self. See your shadow and embodiment filled with mini explosions of Light top to toe, like trillions of sparks of Light!

Look into the eyes of your shadow self, your eyes. Pause. See the reflection of Light within your shadow self, as your shadow self embraces the Light within your eyes. Pause.

Now gently embrace each other, making peace with that which you believe to be your enemy. Long pause.

Acknowledge and give thanks to the experience without giving it your power. Set the intent for your ‘perceived enemy’ to leave if you feel unable to hold its hand through this transformation. 

Bring to mind that which hinders you and prevents you from excelling. See this not as your darkest energy but rather for the experience it offered. Let it go.

No longer need you fear your darker frequency, nor run away from your shadow, or be interrogated by it, OR live according to conditions set by something that has no power, unless you give it so.

Don’t treat presumably dark energy or the shadow self with malice, negativity and anger. LOVE that which you need to let go of because, by loving it, you give power to the self over it and, by hating it, you give power unto it which holds you within its clutches. It is only by loving something and thanking it for being it in your life (by acknowledging the experience), that you find the gift of Light within its deepest darkest parts. Thus, the vibrational frequency of what you ‘believed’ it was – and what it truly is – sets in motion a new tone for you to see things in the light where it can no longer control you.

If you are as Light, how can you ever be in darkness?
As the shadow moves across your planets, symbolically embrace the shadow moving across your own life and dance with it! When those of a lower frequency or dimmer light interrogate you, shine your light upon them! Let their eyes reflect your Light. 

Control creates separation!
Integrate the Yin Yang of self by holding the power of light and dark within the essence of your Light and Love – and fear none. As a Christed Being the true dark can never be again, for wherever you are, there too is light.  May the Light of the living Christ burn brightly within you and may you know that not now, or not ever, can you be alone? I am Kuthumi I am the Lord and Master Cohan of the Golden Rays of Love and Wisdom and I greet and bless thee in Light, Adonai.
