(Excerpt from http://www.sun-gazing.com)
This full moon is officially named the Harvest Moon and lunar eclipses always, and only, take place when the moon is at its fullest. On the evening of September 16-17th the sun, moon, and Earth will all become evenly aligned and the moon will then pass behind our planet. That’s where it will enter into the Earth’s shadow and the light from the sun will be blocked from reaching it.
Each of us will experience this eclipse in our own unique and individual way on both our conscious and subconscious planes of existence. It may be eye-opening and monumental for some, or slight yet noticeable for others. Below are some of the more significant ways in which this Harvest Moon lunar eclipse may end up affecting you:
Things will come to an end or be completed. This sense of finality can appear in essentially any area of our lives. Perhaps it will manifest as a relationship that’s burned itself out or you’ll finally finish a project you’ve been working long and hard on. Either way, it will be over and done with. Say goodbye and move on to whatever is next on your plate.

Note: this article appears originally on http://www.edgarcayce.org
The Cherokee people have a rich oral tradition detailing the origin of their ancestors. By comparing that history with the psychic readings of Edgar Cayce, a case can be made that the actual origin of the Cherokee was Atlantis.
The Cherokee people, originally called Aniyunwiya, meaning “principal people,” have a rich oral history that began 12,000 years ago. Ethnographic data also corroborate the migration from the east: “the tradition recited that (the Cherokee) had originated in a land toward the rising sun … it was supposed to have been near the seacoast…” (Mooney, J. [1992 reprint]. History, Myths, and Sacred Formulas of the Cherokees)
The readings document that a group left Atlantis and travelled to South America when the Atlantean refugees relocating to the Peruvian land:
…in the Inca or Peruvian or Ecuador land…when the people from On…and Og were making for so many changes—by the disturbing forces which arose from individuals who came into the land from the Atlantean land… (1895-1)
…in that land now known as the Peruvian…when the Ohums were being besieged by the people from the Poseidian land… (1909-1)
Several readings refer to the dissensions, rebellions, disturbances, turmoils, and destruction that happened in Atlantis between two spiritual groups, the sons of the Law of One and the sons of Belial.
…in the Atlantean land…when there were the rebellions by the children of Belial… (2283-1)
…in the Atlantean land when there were turmoils…between the sons of Belial and children of the Law of One. (3102-2)
Some of the priests in Atlantis were corrupt, focusing on the material rather than spiritual. They practiced the black arts (436-2), misused spiritual laws (2464-2), and desired to dominate others (440-5). The readings document the ongoing wars between these two factions:
The entity then took the part of those who later became the heads of those that warred against those of the Law of One. (1208-1)
…in that land now known as the Atlantean…when there were the turmoils…The entity was among the people that were with the sons of Belial, that warred with the sons of the One influence…among those…bringing…those activities in…the Central America land…in the Incal land…becoming the priest… (670-1)
Although the readings appear to lack specific evidence of this, they do state that sons of the Law of One used force against the sons of Belial:
Ax-El-Tan…made those attempts to curb the activities of the sons of Belial and Beelzebub … (who) rose to those positions as the warrior among the Atlanteans; and turned to the use of destructive forces … (1066-1)
…the entity made WARS upon the children of Belial… (1610-2)
The readings document the sojourn in the Yucatan, as well as the migration to North America of the Atlanteans. While there is no documented academic evidence, it is suspected that the Olmec heads were erected to honor the people slain by the corrupt priests. Eventually the Cherokee ancestors found their way to North America:
The entity was among those of the second generation of Atlanteans who struggled northward from Yucatan, settling in what is now a portion of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio; being among those of the earlier period known as Mound Builders. (3528-1)
The Walam Olum testifies to the Cherokee construction of the mounds in the Ohio Hopewell Culture Area. At least ten readings clarify which areas Mr. Cayce meant when he referred to the Mound Builders/Mound Dwellers: 328-1, 500-1, 1215-4, 1286-1, 1298-1, 1966-1, 3004-1, 3393-2, 3528-1 and 5294-1. In eight of these the identified geographic area belongs to the Ohio Hopewell Culture Area.
And more than a century ago ethnographer James Mooney recorded that the Cherokee built the mounds on the Ohio near Moundsville, and claimed to have built the mounds on the Upper Ohio. (Mooney, op. cit. 20-22) Eventually the Cherokee would find a home in the Great Smoky Mountains.
From the emigration of the Cherokee ancestors out of Atlantis some 12,000 years ago until 1540 CE, the time of European contact, the Cherokee had travelled thousands of miles. The Cherokee are cousins of the Iroquois, also known as the Haudenosaunee, whom the readings state are the pure descendants of the Atlanteans (1219-1).
The Proto-Iroquoians and the Proto-Cherokee had a disagreement that caused the tribes to part ways: the Iroquois went north, and the Cherokee went south. But the thread of the Cherokee migration history can readily be discerned in the readings. And the Cherokee can claim equal status with the Iroquois as descendants of the Atlanteans.

We each have a beautiful Spirit. It is our very essence, but we are sometimes unable to have a clear, inner connection, to our physical body. We live our lives unable to have health, wealth, and the happiness that is our birthright.
The frequency of our souls and the frequency of our bodies are, more often than not, misaligned. We might experience resistance and incoherence between the two if they are in outright conflict and disassociation. All too often, we make choices early in life that separate us from the blue print of our purpose; our reason for being. As we distrust our original purpose, we start to feel unworthy of the magnificence of who we really are. When this happens, we get confused and begin to let take root in our being, that there is a dis-connect between what we desire and what is showing up in our lives. We begin to judge the segments of our life’s moments. When we lose sight of the Source of our lives we invite separation to move in, we become alone in our illusions.
This occurs because of disappointments and grief in our lives, even as early as birth. As children, we had experiences that were traumatizing. In particular, events in which we were injured physically or were subjected to strong emotional situations that left us feeling frightened, betrayed, angry or sad. We made decisions based on those moments about how the world treats us. We then began to expect similar experiences and now the world around us responds to our expectations. We have fallen victim to our own negative expectations.
Stumbling along without the full power and presence of our Spirit, in many ways we lose synergy with our purpose and codes that allow for our divinity to be expressed through our body/Altar. The understanding that our bodies are altars is perfectly illustrated by our fingerprints. Every human ever born has totally unique fingerprints. No two are alike. Each one of us embodies our own specific purpose, that only we can carry out.
“Altar”, in this sense, refers to a physical object where “spirit” meets “matter”; the “above” meets the “below” or the “macro” meets the “micro”. The body/Altar then is the vessel through which the soul implements its purpose in the world. We could say that we are the arms and legs of God.
Sometimes, when you are feeling your spirit, your body gets ungrounded, like you don’t belong. You can’t be so spiritually bound that you are no earthly good. Your spirit and body need to work together. When presented a lofty idea, my Grandmother always asked, will it grow corn? Do you know that you should have more energy and better health, but can’t seem to get there? Feel like you’re doing the right things, but see no progress? There is a reason you are not getting there, even though you feel like you are doing the right things. For example, you could be getting plenty of exercise and eating all the right foods yet your health is declining; you can barely get out of bed in the morning. Those decisions you made early in life and reinforced with emotional responses, formed beliefs in lack and unhappiness that are now so powerful, they override even your best intentions. They are silent shadows that cloud your conscious mind, sabotaging your health and your success. This can be changed by clearing these beliefs and making different decisions.
Imagine how it will feel to have clear mind permanently and know you are living your purpose.
Our Spirit is crying for reality, genuine experiences, which only physical life can give to it. We are God’s intention in this world, designed with a specific purpose that no one else can fulfill. Only in our beautiful bodies can we experience love. The negative thoughts that poisoned our spirit must be rooted out. We are created for health, wealth and happiness, not to be sick, broken, poor, confused or any other incoherent state of mind. And yet, what the body is crying for in mortal experience, only the Spirit can fulfill. As you permit this union of Spirit and body, so will you directly know what it feels like to be the love that you are.
When more of your spirit is merged into you, an undeniable shift is created. It becomes the starting point for a new reality in which health, happiness, abundance and meaning are supported from the highest frequencies. We become more light and energy, and less matter, hence the term ‘enlightenment.’ Gloriously, we remember who we are and our divine origins. Enlightenment is a state of indescribable peace, a deep passionate peace. We can now more fully experience the present moment in all its wonderment without the burden of the past or concerns for the future. There is a profound coherence between Body and Spirit; old programs, limitations, states of dis-ease have effortlessly resolved themselves. It is then that you can profoundly understand and experience what Love is all about.
We have trillions of cells in our body and they all respond to vibration: light, sound, energy, love. All that exists can be measured and resonates a frequency. Research from the science of human vibrations over decades now has found that there is a scale of frequencies that corresponds to a person’s level and state of mind. Love is the highest vibration we can hold.
We encompass the greatest light and potential that we consciously invoke. In this way, everything the Observer/Spirit does is translated into a process in the body. You literally cannot have a body without being connected to your Observer/Spirit.
Love realigns the body at a cellular level with the highest possible spirit or highest light that the body can hold.

I have celebrated the cycles of the Moon as the natural measure of days all my life.
The moon takes 27.3 days to orbit the Earth and that comes to 13 months in a year, not 12. Native/original people associate personality and physical reality to moon names to track the passing of the year. The January full moon is referred to as Wolf Moon, Snow Moon or Hunger Moon, which the Farmer’s Almanac attributes to the notion that hungry wolves would howl on the outskirts of Villages due to the scarcity of food.
My Cherokee Grandmother said this was a time the Wolves travel and get set up for the new season. Maturing and birthing was part of the more vocal time of howling. My People observed the Wolf closely and saw them as Teachers. Our teaching lodge, likened to a university, was referred to as Wolf Lodge.
We use Nature and Earth’s inhabitants to define meanings and communicate matters of life. Our Elders observed the Sky and the season’s time effects on Humans and all life. We understood a not-visible presence in it all that we refer to as Spirit. And it all was of Great-Ani Spirit. So there is significance to everything.
The Wolf Moon is a learning time for organizing and improving our ways if needed. A time of evolving. A reflective time for planning and putting matters of change in our lives. A seeking and dreaming time, where one included inward journeys and dreams to answer deep questions. Due to weather in some places, the Bear was known and their way of survival was observed as well with the Wolves.
My family lived with Wolves and normally there were 2-5 sharing shelter and food source with us. They were remnants of Packs that traveled around us. I had a newborn for many years as a girl that my Grandmother saved from dying, and it stayed with me as children today have Dogs. They are great protectors and we became their pack!
So take this time and allow the natural order of life to flow with you, those close to nature live with God’s presence in all creation, and have a knowing of Oneness.

Here in the soft velvet night, sitting with the Lake I am aware of every moving thing! I do my breathing routine before my meditation and the cool night air fills my lungs, and as I hold it, I feel it being absorbed into every cell and atom. As I continue to inhale and hold it, I become sensitive to the space around my body and emerge out into the universe and hold my body Altar suspended in Nothingness. After a timeless period I am filled with an amazing and wonderful stillness that becomes a chant that becomes my body. My whole being has become the soft darkness and I am one with stars and heavens!! I am bathed in the moon light and feel eternity within me.
Hours passed and yet it seemed only moments! Then I began my voyage back to the present time. When I felt the matter that makes up my body altar I have a sense of peace and gratefulness that has no words to speak. I can hear the stillness of the water and the hint of Wind Spirit.
While I still remain observant of this time, I am overflowing with light and love. I feel a drop of rain, just one from a clear sky touch my cheek. A familiar thing that happens often. oh beautiful Beings we are One and I open and send out to you the energy that has come in this time.
All beautiful and good things!! We are always loved and never separate or alone.
All good things and happy days!!

We know now that it is our beliefs that translate into these neurochemicals and neuropeptides which transform our state of being, our personality and our ‘reality’. By thought alone, that which we focus on, is what creates the reality we experience. By staying focused on what matter we choose to experience, we cause that “What” into being.
