Five Powerful Ways to Start 2020

Five Powerful Ways to Start 2020

Before you dismiss 2019 as a bad year – STOP and reflect on what happened over the past 12 months. Analyse every difficult situation to understand the learning lesson, how it pushed you to make changes. You see, if we dismiss each year like most do at the start of a new year, we miss out on vital knowledge that we need to react, do things and approach things differently.

The more we can analyse the challenges in the past, then the trends, patterns and learning points will be clear. You also start to see how you have grown over the year.

For example if you were forced to end a relationship with a friend or family member then once your have gone past the pain and negativity, you will find something in that situation that you can take forward.

Did you stand up for yourself? Did you realise that you shouldn’t have meddled in a situation? Did you feel better afterwards?

For example if the relationship ended because of your temper then you need to work on that in the new year.  Facing the facts will ensure you have the right tools in 2020.

Or perhaps you felt like a victim? The question is why? Was it the other person? What could you have done to change things?  Then it’s time to let go.

We have to be conscious of our actions and situations to be able to learn from them and do things differently.

There this is phrase that is used to death at this time of the year – New Year, New You. Well a change of dates doesn’t automatically bring about a new you!

Most of us drag our existing self along with the baggage and issues, into the new year but losing the baggage or changing its contents,  reassessing the route and tweaking the journey along the way will help you lead a lighter and happier 2020.

A lot of us set ourselves for failure at the start of the year as we feel the new dates will magically conjure up a totally new life and experience but then get upset as it feels the same the year before.

A more realistic and reflective attitude sets your expectations low and when things do turn for the better then you can rejoice at the achievements.

There are plenty of things to do to prepare energetically for the New Year.

Here are my top 5 tips:

  1. De-clutter and clean the house. Get rid of rubbish, wipe down the window sills, mop the floors, change the bedding, and vacuum the house. Do this ON or BEFORE December 31st . Do not do this on Jan 1st!  Do not clean or wash clothes on Jan 1st. It is believed that you will wash away your good luck if you do! Energy wise, it is good to clean and de-clutter as it changes the energy in the house and makes space for new things as well as luck.
  2. Sage the house -Keep your thoughts positive, switch off the phone and focus on the ritual. Use good quality sage to smudge the house.  Put it in an unused heat proof bowl and place it on a tray with a lighter and a feather. Stand near your front door, close your eyes ask Archangel Michael to ground and protect you. Ask him to surround you with his healing light. Start smudging the front door using the feather to push the smoke to the area, and then walk around the house, letting the sage smoke touch every window, door, electrical product, pillows, bed  and things such as phones, laptops and tablets. End your ritual by going back to the door, facing north and send out a prayer asking for a positive and happy for you and your family. 
  3. On Jan 1st evening – sit quietly or do this with the family even with the kids. Put some paper and pen around the table. Put some nice relaxing music. Here is my suggested list. Try each one and see how it resonates with you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owVazx83hcc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY4oDD8ol_M or this beautiful music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=def3-73gR-U  Light some sage or incense. Close your eyes and breath in and out a few times until you feel the body relax. Allow yourself to let go. Let your mind drift along with the music.  Open your eyes when you are ready. Pick up the paper and start writing the things you NEED in 2020. E.g. – A new house, a relationship, a new job, a better boss, husband or girlfriend to be more understanding, more money, a new car etc. Put this into an envelope and put it somewhere visible. Write “Intentions 2020”  Put this in your Full Moon fire on Jan 10.
  4. Balance: It is important to cleanse and balance the body as well as the home. Clear the energy with these Chakra tune up that you can either meditate to or put on your earphones and listen to as you fall asleep so it can work its magic as you sleep. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9WasL59vOs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCpBSnYBTM0
  5. On Jan 1st – as a final cleansing, mix in a tiny bit of turmeric powder in a cup of water. Use an unused cup or tumbler. Don’t use too much turmeric as it stains so you want very little. Close your eyes and breathe in and out before you start. Think of Archangel Michael or any God of your faith. I always think of Michael as well as Goddess Lakshmi the God of Prosperity. Say in your mind “(insert name) please bless this house and all of us with good health, prosperity and happiness in 2020”. Start at the front of the house and work your way through the house from top to bottom. Take a leaf and dip into the water and sprinkle the corners of each room. Go back to the front of the house and pour out any leftover water on the front garden.

I really hope you follow my suggested rituals above as it will truly change the energy for 2020 and bring you a lot of new changes that will enhance your life. Most importantly do it with a positive mind and focus on what you need in your life. The Universe has your back! Just give it a chance.

Please do leave a comment and let me know how it goes.

November – Master Number Month of Insights & High Energy

November – Master Number Month of Insights & High Energy

November – The Awakening Month 

November 11, 2018 is a master number day so listen up. 2018 is a 11 year (2+0+1+8 =11) so Nov 11 is a 11-11-11 day.

11 – 11 is a gateway for new energy and this falling just a few days after the New Moon brings in an extra dose of light. November is our PUSH THROUGH month. Some of us have seen major transformation from personal attitudes, business, and changes in situations to even relationship statuses.

2018 has allowed many of us to face our truth. November is going to push you forward and help get you ready for 2019. We will receive a high frequency of energy and healing this day. So please keep your thoughts positive, write in your gratitude journal or jar. You have nothing to lose by refocusing on the good stuff and what you would like to welcome to your life. It is free and if it works then it will magnify the good and help you achieve your dreams. Equally if you only focus on the bad and the “it won’t happen” stuff then you are really manifesting the “crud”, the things you should be letting go, not keeping in.I have already seen some changes in the energy around. More and more people seem to be open to Spirit and spiritual discussions. We are being asked to be more authentic, pure and speak the truth. 11-11-11 is also a “SIX” day which is all about dreams, seeing clearly, and opens a new gateway to be able to manifest your heart’s desires.

So focus on the light and the love. This is special and a rare opportunity to truly focus on what you need in your life. People sometimes tell me that I make it sound simple and easy, this whole “keeping positive” nonsense and “does it even work”. My answer is always the same. It cost your NOTHING to try to be positive and to focus on what you WANT. It is like setting your coordinates on your SATNAV. It tells your SOUL what you want so it can guide you.

You must also take action. It is like wanting to win the lottery but never buying the ticket. As they say, you must “be in it to win it”. Do your moon rituals, keep a gratitude journal or jar and try to focus on what you want so you can receive double the amount. 

Just like a magnet, energy is made up of positive and negative. So if you keep on the positive it will attract and bring more of the same to you and vice versa. Have you wondered why sometimes when one bad thing happens, a series of the same appears in your life?

The challenge is to not let the first negative event to derail you. If you show strength and tenacity to hold on despite the storm then you will make it out and push forward.

Keeping this in mind, use the energy of 11.11.11 to push through the storm and reach for the rainbow at the end. Now here is the thing, the WHOLE of NOVEMBER is scattered with this master number!

1, 10, 11, 19, 28 and 29 are all master days. I found October really difficult and slow. Things felt incredibly sticky and plans kept changing all the time. It was almost as if the Universe was playing with me. So yes it was incredibly frustrating but I felt the energy truly change after the 31st! By the first I had good news and things felt different. The same things which felt difficult in October is EASY now. So yes there is a huge amount of insight and ease this month. I am particularly excited as my birthday falls on the 29th which is another 11.11.11 day! It is not always that your birthday falls on a master number day. 

Does your birthday fall on a master number day too? 

April’s Pink Full Moon in Scorpio –

April’s Pink Full Moon in Scorpio –

Tomorrow’s Pink Full Moon is in Scorpio which feels like a very deep cleansing and transformative time for all of us. The cycle from the last New Moon amplified by the potent energy of the Mercury Retrograde was crazy to say the least. Vivid almost prophetic dreams, emotional and many of us were blindsided by unexpected issues.

I won’t be surprised if you have had dreams that involves water the sign of communication but also emotions. Our emotions affect how we communicate or interpret messages from and to people. Our communication can also impact on our emotions therefore these are the themes you have to work with the next three months.

Try to listen more, to see the body language, resist from being too sharp with your words and don’t take things to heart if the delivery of a message is hurtful. Look past it and listen to what is being said not how. This will benefit you in the long run.

Full Moons are great at filtering out the clutter out of our lives and forces us to face the “let go” aspects of our personality, habits or even relationships. For example if someone you have always tolerated but kept at arm’s length starts featuring in your life a week or two before a Full Moon things get a little heated, then know it’s for the best. You will be given a choice – tolerate this person and maybe see how they have changed, and how this relationship has evolved OR you may just lose patience and this person will leave your life, slamming the door behind them. You will obviously feel angry and uncomfortable with this at first, but trust that this had to happen.

During a Scorpio Full Moon, it will “sting” at first but then things will get better. So keep a watch on things you have had to deal with a week before and the week after the full moon. Be open to change and transformation. The less resistance you give the universe at this time, the less painful it will be. The more you fight it, the harder it will be.  Surrender and breathe!

The Scorpion symbolizes Scorpio, and that is no accident. Much like the Scorpion would rather kill itself than be killed, those born under this sign are in ultimate control of their destiny. It is life on the Scorpion’s terms, too, since these folks promote their agenda (they are quite the executives) and see to it that things go forward. Others may find this overbearing (it can be) and even self-destructive, but that’s the beauty of the Scorpio: they have tremendous regenerative powers, much like the literal Scorpion can lose its tail and promptly grow a new one. Fearless Scorpios rarely lose; they just keep on going, since they are stubborn and determined to succeed (this Scorpio trait is in keeping with the Fixed Quality assigned to this sign). Scorpios work as hard as they do so they can someday sit back and feel satisfied with themselves. These folks are intense, passionate and filled with desire. They’re also complex and secretive, so don’t expect to get much out of them, lest they become suspicious and exit stage left. It’s best not to bet against Scorpios, either, since these folks are surprisingly resourceful.

What does this mean for us? A full moon in Scorpio is formative for the next five months of this year. What you do this time with this energy can either be a great boost or a step backwards. Like Scorpios where things are serious, concrete and black & white, you will need to face up to things and deal with it, no fluffing around, no more excuses.

The energy wants to get to the core of problems, tear away the plaster and fix things. You can also be led into temptation – to spend more, to feel invincible or led by your ego to the point of being silly.

Learn to cut your cords with people who create drama in your life or keep leading you to self-destruct. The ones who know how to trigger you to react but stand back in the shadows while you get the blame. Open your eyes and ears because this full moon is a very personal one.

Like a scorpion, you will see something big end in your life. It could be the end of a marriage, a pregnancy or a job. We may feel it’s the end of the world because all of this means a lot to us. Just like the scorpion that is able to regenerate its own tail after its injured or fallen off, there is hope for a new opportunity. Please don’t be disheartened and keep the faith because there is a new day approaching.

You will find that many of the themes popping up in your dreams is actually emotions or day to day things that have been under the surface which you have been unwilling to face. It has to be acknowledged and cleared at some point. You have underlying stress and physical pain relating to this so please release them now and you will feel better.

The “pink” full moon encourages us to love in all its forms, starting with yourself. Fall in love with yourself and be in love.

Some of us will be facing health issues. Self-care is very important and you are being forced to look after yourselves and get to the source of the problems. If you have been self-medicating or have “tried” to cure yourself naturally then please understand that this is masking the problem. My grandmother was a medicine woman and her knowledge came from generations of herbalist and Ayurvedic experts in India. My mother always had a herb or food that helped with sickness but we knew when it was time for modern medicine. There are things that alternative medicines can help with and other more serious things that need an MRI or an operation to solve. If you have been in denial then please look into this now before things get serious.

We are also being pushed to look after our emotional health. Self-care is about your physical body but also your emotional layer. Be kind to yourself and be in love with yourself. Give yourself some time to process things before jumping into action, take time off for yourself and don’t be so hard on yourself.

January Full Moons 2018: Transformation, Manifesting and Finding your Tribe

January Full Moons 2018: Transformation, Manifesting and Finding your Tribe

We start the New Year with a brand new Full Moon, in fact it will be the first of two Full Moons this month, the first being on Jan 2nd and the other on Jan 31st. In between this, we will have the New Moon on Jan 17 where everything gets reset. These are Super moons and include a lunar eclipse.

The combination of all this major planetary activity will bring some very strong energy which will be like a tsunami, unblocking major deals, negotiations and movement in decisions.

We will find some important announcement to do with Europe and Asia in and around February to March time. In fact I feel one of this will be a deal breaker of sorts. It will be interesting to see how it will affect world politics in general and how the community will react.

The Wolf Moon in Cancer, which will appear in the UK at 2.14am (GMT/BST) on January 2nd brings us closer to our community. Just like the wolves, we have to work in a pack, communicate and understand our purpose. So do not feel like you have to isolate yourself to be able to succeed. In fact this is the time to share, explore and network. January is the time to set realistic goals but rather than aim for the ones that are physical or play on our bad habits or make us feel bad, put together ideas that can help you achieve.

For example, looking at your business, identify the areas that need improvement and say that you struggle with keeping your accounts. Perhaps your goal for the year is to do your own accounts and you can achieve this through a course or a workshop. This goal is empowering and even if you don’t manage to grasp it well enough to do your own accounts, you would have learned something along the way.

It is important to note that by March, we will all be wondering where the time has gone, as things are moving fast. If you have been distressed by how things are moving, people holding contracts or decisions back, then stop fretting and be prepared as the wheels are already in motion.

You will need your “tribe” around you so join up with any interest groups, likeminded people or networking sites as the more you interact as we will need to be part of something to get a few things off the ground. For many of us struggling emotionally or wanting to develop spiritually, learning to speak our truth will be important. If you constantly feel choked up or unable to voice out what you really feel, with throat clearing and issues around that area that is not medically related, this is a sign that your throat chakra is struggling to cope.

January’s full moons want you to “listen” before you act. If you are called on by a friend who is in need, just be there for them and listen. Don’t judge or try to fix things, just lend them your ear. You will avoid conflict and misunderstandings this way. Some of us may be holding on to intense energy so your words may be misconstrued as being judgemental or overbearing. Nothing to worry about, just take a step back and be a friend.

Going back to Jan 1st, this is an important day for many reasons. However please take note that 2018 is a master number year as it totals up to “11” so Jan 1st literally 1.1.11 which is a super master number. I know many of us will be waking up with a huge hangover or just plain tired from staying up late and dealing with the dishes and kids, however it is important to start the year on the right foot.

A master number day is a powerful day as it a super manifesting day. Keep your thoughts positive and focus on the things that you want to manifest. Be realistic about what you want too. Asking the universe to deliver 10million is a big ask as it may not be in your soul’s blueprint and they also can foresee the difficulties you may encounter with such a big fortune all at once. How many lottery winners have we seen happy? Many of those who win do seem to have fractured lives, get taken advantage of, fall out with each other or lose everything eventually. Some people are meant to have that much and know how to deal with it and others who think money is the answer to everything, will soon find out that it isn’t.

The trick to manifesting is to put down things that can definitely improve your life, things that you can achieve, and don’t forget feelings/emotions. For example “I want to feel happy about my job”. How this will manifest will be different for each individual. For one, it is the line manager who is causing unhappiness and perhaps he or she will be forced to leave or gets promoted and a kinder more “people person” takes over. This change of guards will allow for a happier and cohesive department. Or you may see a fantastic role and go for it, leading you to a great team and work life balance.

I feel that many of you will feel the “reset” button that the new moon will bring on the 17th of January. By this time you will have seen a few things fall into place but also recognise some of the emotional baggage you have been carrying around, and willing to finally let go. This is important as the more you let go, the better it will be to accelerate your soul’s purpose come Jan 31st when the Blue Moon comes along to sweep everything forward.

Keep an eye on who comes into your lives between January and end of February. New people, old friends or even relatives. Ask yourself the reasons why they appearing in your life now, what are their motives, how can they help you now and what you can learn from them. If it is someone from the past who you had an issue with or vice versa, is forgiveness or clearing the communication lines, the lesson?

January’s Full Moons are about love, manifesting but also the healer of old wounds. So be open to forgive and patch things up with people. The more you let it fester, the harder it will get for you to let go of the pain. Don’t let your ego and pride hold you back.

Hopefully the skies will be clear as the first full moon of 2018 is expected to be the biggest and most vibrant. This will spark off healing, transformation and show you where you need “growth” in your life.

As far as the rest of the year goes, I do feel that the royal wedding in the UK will bring some positive energy to break up the dark clouds of Brexit. I sense Diana’s influence at play as although she loved her boys equally, she always had a soft spot for Harry. She somehow knew even at the early days, that he was a lot more impulsive, emotional and nonconventional than his brother. She also knew that he hurt easily. I sensed her presence around Harry and Megan during the engagement announcement in the gardens. She feels that Megan will go where she tried to, in a calmer and less emotional manner. In saying this I do feel a touch of sadness to their day or the days after. I feel there will be some sort of an event which will take place to overshadow their day.

Now I also feel that the world leaders have to pay attention to ISIS and their agenda. What do they want really? What are their demands? I feel this needs to be]]]]]]]changing sharply and they will achieve the funding they require from a super power.

There will be a major earthquake that will be on the plates along some American states but also affect those along the same lines. I feels like the time when the season changes either winter to spring or summer to autumn.

Although we will be reacting to this negatively as this is the trend of the world now, until the next shift happens, we as people will be more resilient and be able to pick ourselves up and go on.

The lyrics of this song popped into my head as I wrote the words above: https://genius.com/Samuel-follow-me-lyrics

In summary the theme for 2018 is transformation, manifesting and finding your tribe. This is a year to come together as people and as a community. Keep your thoughts positive, Law of Attraction techniques will serve you well.

Ten Steps to Start 2018 Positively

Ten Steps to Start 2018 Positively

The energy, like the stress levels rises up and down at this time of the year. We go through the stress, the happy phase and then a dip into the depression of everything being over so quickly. Before we can take a deep breath, 2018 is around the corner and then another stress pike hits us. Then the general deflation of going back to work and dealing with the endless advertising for gym memberships and diet deals slam dunk us into another vicious cycle of the blues. Image result for 2018

We do this every year and yet we start off the year with this brilliant hang over energy hoping to forget the year that has been and put all our eggs into the new year which is like telling a new starter in a company that they are to be this or that. Imagine the pressure of living up to people’s expectations!

The thing is, the New Year is LIFE. There are some things is in your control and others, that are not. You cannot control who will die, who will have a terminal illness, how your company is run and how that will affect your employment nor can you stop yourself from feeling unhappy.

You can however try to be kind to yourself so that will start a circle of good things around you, deal with situations better, go see the doctor if you feel ill and prevent a bigger illness, take care of yourself, attract the right people, and do more of happy. You can stop going into one relationship to the other, you can set aside time to study or improve your skills, spend time with people you love, plan things and be in control of what you can achieve in your life.

Start of 2018 in a more positive way. Here is a list of things you can put into practice before or on the first week of the New Year. You will need a new note book or a sheet of paper for some of the ideas below.

1. Learn from the Bad stuff

The problem with wishing away the year is that we miss out on the lessons or the positives that could push us forward in 2018. There are so many good things that have happened, bad stuff also have good things in them and lessons to be learned. Remember in the darkness there is always light, we just have to find it. What did you learn from that experience? Did you find that you were a lot stronger than you thought? Were you able to stand up for yourself in a positive away? Draw two columns in a note book or sheet. Mark one, “Situation” and the other “Lessons”. You can also add another two column to indicate date/time and another for “Positive/Negative”. Now write down as clearly and succinctly as possible what happened and the in lessons, think of how you overcame, reacted or learned from the situation. There is no right or wrong answers, this is about YOU and how it affected you. If you decided on the positive/negative then indicate what the outcome for you was. You can list as many or as little as you want. Once you have finished, take a look, read through and see how your words make you feel and look at how many positives or negatives occurred. This is a great exercise as if you encounter similar or recurring situations in 2018. You can go back and see the pattern forming and you will have another revelation or learning to uncover. For 1-7 I found this piece of music so relaxing and really helps to put me in a very tingly, mindful and calm zone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2l8gD4mQty0&list=PLdp-VfHDBb-aoG5A4fQGH-nHAOTVB37dY&index=43

2. Letting Go – This is simply to put on paper, the things you feel you need to “let go” off – emotions, attitudes or habits that you feel stops you from going forward

3. Spring clean – start the New Year with a clean slate. Decluttering the house can be the start of the clearing of the mind. Get rid of the things you don’t need. Do this in a mindful way so that you are not thinking of anything other than what you are doing in the moment. Give away or throw but get the house in order. This helps to get your own mind in order and focused.

4. Gratitude Jar – this is a good time to open your jar and start reading the good stuff that happened over the year. If you don’t have one, then start a new one for 2018. Get an old large jar and decorate it as you will. Write down your day or week’s highlight into the jar as often as you can. Open up and read around this time next year.

5. Friends & Family – write down a list of people you would like to spend more time with in 2018. This is even people you are no longer speaking to or haven’t been in touch with. Put down an activity or even a place you would like to be with them, next to their name. Make it a realistic list and an activity. Go back later this year to reflect on how you can make it happen or be surprised at who calls or messages you in the year. Write down another list of people who make you feel bad or guilty. Let this list serve you when you encounter the same patterns the coming year. You have choices and options. Never feel that you MUST or NEED to spend time with anyone who makes you feel bad.

6. Write down five things you want to see happen in 2018. This is about YOU so leave out your children, partner or friends. Just about what you want and need.

7. What do you want to transform this year? Is there a part of you that needs transformation? If there is ONE thing that the Universe could do for you, what would that be? Emotion, relationship, career, health, mental clarity, money….etc

8. Find a moment between now and NYE to meditate. I love this piece https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6AqsXW09fU&list=PLdp-VfHDBb-aoG5A4fQGH-nHAOTVB37dY&index=55 for meditation at the moment. It makes my body relax but also create a very beautiful space around me. Create a space and time for yourself so you won’t be disturbed. Leave your notebook or a sheet of paper next to you with a pen.You can do this for 10mins or an hour, totally up to you. Make yourself comfortable and put on the music. Close your eyes and breathe in and out a few times until you feel your body relaxing. Focus only on the chant and let your mind drift to the words. Now set an intention to relax and to feel positive. Write down any thoughts, ideas or words that come to you when you open your eyes. Read through later and think of what it means to you.

9. New Year Smudging & Energy Clearance

Clear the energy by smudging the house with sage. I prefer white Californian sage but you can use frankincense or just a bunch of your favourite incense.  Put on this Mahalakshmi Gaytri Mantra as you do this this chant is calling on Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth to come grace you with good fortune. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEcn2Bvakr4 Start the north most area of the house or flat and work around clockwise with the sage, focusing only on your 3rd eye and putting out an intention to clear the energy and for good stuff in 2018. Try not to be distracted and try to keep positive. When you get back where you started, put your palms together and welcome Lakshmi to your house. You can also ask Archangel Michael or any of your preferred deity instead of Lakshmi. Guide to Smudging

10. Vision-board – create your vision-board with images or words that resonate with you in terms of what you want to achieve in 2018. I am doing a comprehensive manifesting day so please do come along if you can. Here are the details: Ultimate Manifesting Workshop

I hope this has offered you a positive and uplifting start to the New Year.  Please do share this with friends and family so they can get a great start too!
