Orionid Meteor Shower: How to tap into its powerful energy

Orionids Meteor Shower 2020

The Orionids Meteor Shower Peak will return to our skies in just a couple of days, allowing minerals to be redistributed throughout the universe and help harmonize everyone and everything on the earth, as well as the earth itself. This glittering, display of magnificent shooting stars will be at its most powerful, and harness incredible energy during the night of Wednesday, October 21st, 2020.

The Orionids Meteor Shower Peak is the most abundant meteor flurry that is connected directly to Comet Halley. These mystical shooting stars are essentially minute meteors, or pieces of debris that is left by comets burning up in the earth’s atmosphere, giving us another earthly light show, and when combined with meditating, brings deeper insights to our lives.

When the comet moves through the solar system at intense speed, the sun displaces ice which, in turn, allows rock fragments to come away from the comet. These particles continue on the comet’s trajectory and appear as firey meteors when they pass through the earth’s upper- atmosphere. If a meteorite lands on earth, it can epitomize your life purpose by providing a line of clear communication to your spiritual journey.

People across the world wish upon shooting stars. It is thought that the rarity of such stars gives them magical powers which might lead to a wish being granted. Some historians believe that Greek astronomist, Ptolemy, started this “conscious-tradition”. He wrote extensively about the Gods that looked down upon the earth from their heavenly homes. He believed that the shooting stars would open a portal between heaven and earth, which allows human souls to travel. Perhaps our ancestors are right, they are extraterrestrial messages that bring us optimism, wisdom, and courage beyond our current existence.

The Orionids are so named because the point they appear to come from, called the, “radiant”, lies in the constellation of Orion. The meteors, however, can be seen over a vast area of the sky.

The moon during the Orionids phase in 2020 is in its waxing crescent phase and provides the perfect dark backdrop for this year’s display. You’ll usually see the highest number of meteors a couple of hours just before dawn. These ultra-fast meteors will plunge into the earth’s atmosphere at almost 70 km per second. Orionid meteors leave persistent trains, or ionized gas trails, that last only for a few seconds. After the meteor and its tail have gone, you’ll be able to trace the trail back to Orion. It’s like your own ethereal paint by numbers.

This is a great opportunity to really connect with Orion during this energetically powerful cosmic event. Find a peaceful location, as far away as possible from any light pollution, sit or lie comfortably. It’s worth allowing your eyes to adjust to the dark for about 15 minutes, so that you don’t miss even the faintest of light trails. Spend a few minutes out there, lying in comfort gazing into the night, and watch in awe, as the light crisscrosses the inky-black canvas. Take this time, being surrounded peacefully by our night skies, and collectively, we can resonate with the universe, and expand our consciousness.
