The practice of aligning our bodies with the sun and stars on astronomically significant times is known as celestial alignment. This practice has been around for thousands of years and was used by ancient cultures such as the Egyptians and Mayans for spiritual and practical purposes.

For instance, research has shown that certain yoga poses are more beneficial when performed during specific celestial events like the full moon or the equinox. Similarly, some people believe that aligning ourselves with the movements of the planets and stars can help us tap into their energy and manifest our desires more effectively.

Apart from spiritual benefits, celestial alignment can also have a positive impact on our physical and mental health. Exposure to natural light has been shown to regulate our circadian rhythms, improve mood, and boost cognitive function. Moreover, studies have shown that spending time outdoors and connecting with nature can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.


In Ancient Egyptian temples, there were some spaces that were considered more important than others. One of these places, the inner sanctuary, was so revered that only the high priest could enter the room on one specific holy day. On the other days, the inner sanctuary remained in the dark. On these holy days, the entire population would gather before dawn and wait for the rising sun or the rising star to illuminate the hall which led to the inner sanctuary.

The purpose of the holy of holies was to provide a place for the deity to reside and be worshipped. It was believed that the god or goddess would inhabit the statue or image within the sanctuary and receive offerings and prayers from the priests and worshippers. The holy of holies was an integral part of ancient Egyptian religion and played a vital role in the daily life of the people.


In ancient Egyptian temples, the solstice light was a significant event that was celebrated in the holy of holies or the inner sanctum. The solstice light was a beam of sunlight that penetrated the temple's innermost chamber and illuminated a statue of the temple's primary deity. This event was considered a sacred moment and was believed to represent the rebirth of the deity and the renewal of life.

The solstice light was carefully calculated and observed by the temple priests, who built the temple in such a way that the sun's rays would align with the temple's axis during the solstice. The inner sanctum was designed to be completely dark, except for the beam of sunlight that would enter through a small opening above the temple's entrance.

During the solstice, the temple priests would perform rituals and offer prayers to the deity while the solstice light illuminated the statue. The solstice light was an important event in the ancient Egyptian religion and was believed to bring blessings and good fortune to the temple and its worshippers.

What we sometimes fail to see, is that the people who were present at these events benefited from the light of the new day, as much as the stone figures carried out from temple shrines. People who drank up the energy of the stars would have a happy year, because the starlight lit their physical being's inner sanctum.


The closest star to us is our very own sun. We know that certain times of the year and specific times during the day are best for obtaining the beneficial rays of sunlight for our bodies' Vitamin D production (the Vitamin D receptor is found on every human cell). So what happens when we align our bodies to the sun and other stars at astronomically significant times?

Well, aligning our bodies with the sun and stars can have a profound impact on our overall well-being. Whether we seek spiritual growth or physical health, incorporating celestial alignment practices into our daily routine can bring us closer to our goals and help us live a more fulfilling life.
