Definition of an eclipse: An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when one object in the sky moves into the shadow of another. The term is most often used to describe either a solar eclipse, i.e. when the Moon's shadow crosses Earth's surface, or a lunar eclipse, i.e. when the Moon moves into the shadow of Earth.
Spiritual angle: Eclipses are significant events at a spiritual level. There is an increase in raja-tama which has negative effects on humanity. Ghosts take advantage of the heightened raja-tama to create a variety of issues that have global negative repercussions. Regular spiritual practice ensures that we are insulated from its subtle (intangible) harmful effects.
Types of eclipses
The first thing that came to light through spiritual research is that physical (apparent to our eyes) eclipses as mentioned above are not the only type of eclipses. There are subtle (intangible) eclipses too. These subtle eclipses are caused by the powerful Ghosts_Demons ghosts (demons, devils, spirits, etc.) called sorcerers (mantriks) from the 5th to 7th region of Hell by the use of their supernatural powers and are only apparent to those with an advanced and active sixth sense.
Out of all the eclipses that take place 70% are subtle eclipses and 30% are physical eclipses. The negative impact of a subtle eclipse on mankind is 9 times more powerful than a normal physical solar or lunar eclipse.
Spiritual significance of an eclipse
Due to the Sun being obscured by a subtle barrier in front of the gross Sun or subtle Sun during an eclipse, there are two significant spiritual impacts:
The environment becomes conducive for negative energies to amass black energy. Black energy is a type of spiritual energy that is the primary weapon of attack of ghosts.
The environment is most conducive for negative energies to utilize their black energy to harm mankind during the period of the eclipse as well as to sow seeds of destruction for mankind.
Repercussions of an eclipse
1. Raja-tama increase assists activities of ghosts (demons, devils, spirits. etc.)
During an eclipse period, the power of distressing energies increases by 1000 times as compared to other times. This is because ghosts harness the excess raja-tama generated by the eclipse to amass black energy either by utilizing the conditions to do more spiritual practice to gain negative spiritual black energy or by stealing the spiritual energy of seekers of God.
In the subtle negative regions of Hell, higher order ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies etc.) called sorcerers (mantriks) (i.e. from the 2nd region of Hell downwards) make use of the increased raja-tama during the eclipse to do spiritual practice like sacrificial fires (yadnyas) or meditation to harness spiritual black energy. The black energy generated by various sorcerers flows towards the 7th region of Hell where it is stored.
2. Impact at an individual level
At the time of an eclipse, people are more likely to be affected by their departed ancestors. To do this departed ancestors take advantage of the excess raja-tama and the heightened black energy created by ghosts at the time of an eclipse. It is for this reason people may experience lethargy, tiredness, sickness etc. at a physical level. At the psychological level, there are excess emotional and negative thoughts, especially about spiritual practice. The moon is known to affect the mind. During a full moon, the effect is even more pronounced. This is further accentuated when there is lunar eclipse. Thus the combination of the full moon and lunar eclipse is severe.
There is a general decline in decision-making capacity and people are more likely to make incorrect decisions as the intellect is also affected.
3. Impact at the level of mankind
Eclipses contribute in a large way by providing circumstances conducive to amassing the black energy that ghosts have. They use this black energy to harm mankind in various ways. They do this by sowing seeds of destruction and harm at a subtle intangible level that only manifest in the physical plane after a gestation period. This gestation period can be anywhere from a few days to several years. Examples of this would be sowing seeds of pandemics of contagious diseases like Bird Flu and the Ebola Virus or sowing seeds of the third World War.
An eclipse is an important spiritual event that has lasting adverse effects that are capitalized upon by ghosts.
One needs to take all spiritual precautions especially if the eclipse is visible over where one lives.
Regular spiritual practice done throughout the year helps to reduce the adverse effect of an eclipse. In addition if one does intense spiritual practice during the eclipse it can even be positive, so far as individual spiritual growth is concerned.
