Pale Coral Pomander helps us to love the parts of ourselves that we have given negative attention to, in order to be able to love ourselves a little more, to be more kind to ourselves. When we recognise the parts of ourselves that we haven’t loved so much and realise they are integral to our being we can recognise that when there has been a shift it is often a negative experience that we have learnt from. The eclipse can be utilised to powerfully refocus and turn shadows in to light. It provides an opportunity for us to recognise that when we act from fear, energy is released that leads to the creation of that very fear. It seems that to love our fears would be to integrate the energy that has been locked up in our fears, helping us to make the next step forward - the release of unrequited love, the release of fear. Eclipses are tools from the universe to get us to pay attention to areas in our lives that need to change. They shine a glaring ray of truth to the part of our lives that is being touched.
Empathy relates to the Pale Coral, there is a resonance between two beings, facilitated by a common humanity and interdependence. Empathy is a shared situation. The more the light of consciousness comes to it, the greater the possibility of feeling their pain and the easier it is to relate to their pain. That sense of empathy means that their pain is your pain and maybe you can do something within yourself that makes a difference to their pain.
