“Auroras, the beautiful and often eerie curtains of light in the night skies of the far north and south, have been enjoyed for millennia. In the Northern Hemisphere, they are popularly called Northern Lights, and officially known as “Aurora Borealis” (meaning “northern dawn”); in the Southern Hemisphere, they are known as “Aurora Australis” or the Southern Lights….” are to me…portals…teachings of beauty and inspiration to LOOK UP <<to be transported>> & inspired.

“A CME hit Earth’s magnetic field on Oct. 24 at 1800 UT, sparking a strong (Kp=7) geomagnetic storm. Auroras were sighted in the United States as far south as Arkansas, Texas and California”
“A flare is defined as a sudden, rapid, and intense variation in brightness. A solar flare occurs when magnetic energy that has built up in the solar atmosphere is suddenly released. The amount of energy released is the equivalent of millions of 100-megaton hydrogen bombs exploding at the same time! The first solar flare recorded in astronomical literature was on September 1, 1859“
Solar flares extend out to the layer of the Sun called, The Corona.
“When the ejection is directed towards the Earth and reaches it as an interplanetary CME (ICME), the shock wave of the traveling mass of Solar Energetic Particles causes a geomagnetic storm that may disrupt the Earth’s magnetosphere.”
~~Now hence, this is how, we humans are affected by CMEs…our electronics, our land, our etheric environment, our emotions.
The aurora’s tie into the CMEs because “Essentially, the light of auroras is emitted when charged particles in the solar wind excite the electrons of atmospheric atoms through collisions. As the electrons return to their original energy levels, these atoms, primarily oxygen and nitrogen, emit photons of visible light of distinct wavelengths to create the colors of the auroral display.”
These displays are so beautiful, however, as we can understand, they do come out of a great release, change of atmospheric conditions and commotion.
Can we reflect now of our experience here…as we begin to REALIZE what does not serve our own highest and best good, any longer and currently in our life? Hence, then, we take steps to RELEASE, REMOVE, MAKE SPACE, MEND, EVOLVE ~ What does it look like throughout this process, and ulitimately as we step back and view….the present moment once we have gone through the oceanic healing motions of change of eradication? And then…healing … and then….
