New beginnings is part of the plan
On Monday, we will witness a spectacular sight on our skies. The moon will be bigger and brighter than it has ever been in 60 years. It is called “perigee full moon” because it’s the closest to earth on its orbit. The moon hasn’t been this close to earth since 1948!
The weather is so unpredictable in the UK so I am hoping we will be able to see it. As this week unfolded, the energy levels heightened and then crashed on November 8. The US election result was on 8/11/2016. If we total the numbers – 8 +1+1+2+0+1+6 = 1. the number one is about new beginnings and moving forward. Without being too political, Trump signaled change and a clean slate as far as the presidency is concerned. You can say that Clinton represented a known entity as being Secretary of State and a former First Lady.
I do not foresee Trump staying in power for long. The next eight months will be interesting for America and the world in general.
Fear … what are you holding on to?
This made me think about how we go around expecting one thing but totally blindsided by certain things that are out of our control. We fear the unknown because its unfamiliar. I feel the universe is trying to expand our consciousness and teach us a lesson in being open to the unexpected. The rules of engagement have changed. So, don’t expect normal and easy. Just trust that its happening for a good reason and be open to change. Don’t hold to fear as it will manifest negatively in all aspects of your life.
Have you been seeing numbers – 11, 222, 444?
A lot of people have been in touch to say they are seeing 11, 44, or even 22 these last two weeks. The repeating numbers of sequences to do with “1” indicates a new beginning, so if you have been resisting change, take a step back and consider what you need to change to move forward. Some people go through huge life changes when they keep seeing the master number “1111” which is a wakeup call from the divine. 2016 has seen numerous relationship breakups which at first sounds like a bad thing. However, if you believe in the saying “something’s gotta give” then it makes sense people will either try to make it work or end it. When something is broke, no matter how much you try to hide it, the problems will always rise to the surface until you have to face it! As someone who has gone through divorce and the nastiness beforehand, I can safely say that it was the best thing that happened to me! At that time, I felt my life had ended but now I know my life had just begun at that point.
If you keep seeing no 4, this is time for you to put your skills to the test. You are being reminded that the solution is in your hands, take responsibility for your life and act. It also indicates that to succeed, you need to improve your organisation skills and be more practical. Meanwhile the number two is about patience, going the distance and to beware of your communication skills. Be flexible and open to other people’s ideas.
I know the energy this week has been tough. People have had trouble sleeping, issues cropping up and wrapped in fear. The theme is change and the issue is fear of the unknown. There are plenty of triggers from not being able to see the future to feeling a little lost.
People are super sensitive and upset now so some of them off loading their negativity into their online communications. Time to take a step back and detox from technology.
Focus instead on people who love you and spending time with them. Put your energy into what you WANT rather than what you DON’T want. Remember that manifesting is like having a mirror in front of you. It can’t ascertain if what you are manifesting is positive or negative. It tries to make it happen either way. So, if you are constantly negative and nothing is working out, then be mindful of your language and thoughts. If you constantly say “what is the point” ” it won’t happen” “why bother” ‘I’ll always be poor” then that is what will happen.
Pull yourself out of your situation by focusing on what could happen and then make it happen. The most successful people in the world like Oprah who was poor, abused and had no hope did. Look at her now. If she stayed in that place of darkness and pain then she would not be the inspiration she is to millions.
So this is your reminder to put your positive hat on and do my Moon Ritual.You can do it tonight or on Monday evening. The moon effect is felt in our space the day before and up to the day after the full moon.
I truly hope this full moon will bring you all that you wish for. As always if you like what you have read then please do share with your friends and family. You never know who needs guidance.
So what is the myth or history as to why this wonderful festival the highlight of the Hindu calendar?
Rama & Sita’s return to Ayodhya
Guidance for this weekend and the coming week
How do we take advantage of the amazing gift that is being showered into our very existence this weekend and the week after? What can we do to ensure that we release, shed and walk into the light? Leaving behind all that no longer serves us? Entering the realm of a positive live, motivation, happiness and wealth?
Below is my power packed 7 step guide to accelerate your manifesting and letting go:
- Forgiveness – When you forgive, you let go and release the cords that are attached to you. It may feel that the other person(s) have won but in reality it is you that is winning as you no longer allow them to influence your thinking, how you feel and what you do.
- Circle of Love – be with people who make you happy and smile. Be very conscious of how people make you feel. Ask yourself after spending time with someone or a group of people “how do I feel? Happy, drained, angry, sad, belittled? Change who you spend time with. Be uplifted, happy, smile and joyful – not judged, angry, sad or down.
- Meditate – Calm that busy mind of yours with some relaxing music, incense and connect with your inner self.
- Moon ritual – Make some time to do my special moon ritual which takes only a few minutes to do but you will be surprised at the results if you keep at it and believe in it! Get your free copy here.
- Goddess prayer – If you have an altar then leave some sweets and flowers for Goddess Lakshmi. You can print off a photo from the internet and use it as your focus.
Say this little prayer :
Om Mahalakshmyaye Vidmahe, Vishnupriyaye Dhimahi, Tanno Lakshmth Prachodayath
Say this Lakshmi Gayathri mantra with an open heart and full of love. Imagine that you have this opportunity to speak to her direct and ask her for a happier and prosperous life. Believe it or not, but these mantras were not accessible to common people in India for many centuries as it was a huge secret among the the royals and those close to them. So we are indeed very lucky that this is all available to us so easily.
6. Keep your thoughts positive – When you think of what you want in your life – be positive about it. Just because things haven’t worked out now doesn’t mean it will stay the same. So focus on what you need in your life and believe that it WILL come through!
7.Connect with Mother Earth – whether you go out for a walk in nature, perhaps live close to a beach (or on holiday near one!) or just go out t the garden and walk barefoot on the grass – get close to Mother Nature. Moon energy is radiating this weekend. Get connected!
This is a tough week for all of us. From emotions running high to physical symptoms, the energy has been playing havoc with some of us. The theme of the Mercury Retrograde has been all about YOU so it is a very personal and deeply cleansing time. Let me try to explain as simply as possible, when we talk about shifts and new beginnings, we are lead to believe that this is about the bigger, external stuff around us. But it is in fact, to bring in a shift within your consciousness to trigger the change that you want in your life. You cannot expect or want change but not want to change. Once our belief patterns and behaviour adapts to our needs, then the other bigger elements in our life will fall into place. Imagine a domino effect, the first chip being YOU and the rest being things in your life e.g relationship, partners, work, house, family etc. Without that first chip making that move forward, the other chips in the front will have no direction or purpose.
Now to understand how this triple whammy energy storm is going to have an impact on us, we have to acknowledge how the moon phases works. The New Moon is the time for the universe to send us subtle signs on what we need to work on so that by the time the full moon appears in our skies, we have an idea of what we need to release in order to bring about the change or in some cases, a new beginning. Of course this only works if we fully grasp what these messages are. You will need to pay attention to what sort of feelings are bubbling up, how you are feeling and type of issues you are facing. For example, if you are within the first week of the new moon, encountering difficult people who keep questioning your authority or decision making, then stop and ask yourself why. “Why am I being sent these people and what is it that I need to address? This could be because you could be sending the wrong signals “I am not comfortable in a leadership role” Perhaps the universe is trying to help you release the fear that you have about authoritative figures and stand in your own power. Being in charge is not a bad thing and of course some people take it too seriously. But if you evade it and your life purpose is exactly that, then you will continue to struggle with yourself. If you have acknowledged this, the full moon energy will help push you closer to your true life purpose. Take take the opportunity to release these fears and welcome a new beginning. Put the things you no longer need in your life – fear, anger, and any negative energy that do not serve you, onto your list and put all the things you welcome to your life on your wishlist.
As I said, the Retrograde is a very personal one and I don’t blame you if you feel under attack. It is never easy to face up to facts or to deal with our own insecurities and weaknesses. No one wants to feel bad and unfortunately the universe is not making it easy for some of us. Put this into the mix along with the Moon energy waves, you have a serious amount of inner journey to deal with right now. So there will be a number of people experiencing tension headaches (which will slip away after the full moon), aches and pains. Your body will try to resist change and there will be a few physical symptoms to deal with.
For example every now and then I get an awful pain in my shoulder one or two days before the full moon and then disappear the day after the full moon. It is one of the things that I would have normally missed but over the years, noticed that this often occurs near to a full moon. It is like the energy of what you want to let go is aware that it needs to be released and tries to hide but then fails! I also noticed from my personal experience as well as friends and family, that underlining health issues, you know the niggly pain or feeling you have been having ignoring, in the hope it will go away, starts to crop up closer to the Full Moon. The universe has to be cruel to be kind so they bring up the stuff you try to hide under the carpet. So best to keep to your dental appointments and try to not ignore the signals from your body. People tend to get a lot more thirsty close to the full moon as well. We are unconsciously working twice as hard energetically that the body needs to be re-energised.
Have you noticed a pattern emerge in the last couple of weeks? Have the same issues cropped up again and again? Is there something you need to address or change? I do feel that people are being pushed to make decisions, stand up for themselves and also step up to take charge. This is a strong message from the universe for you to adjust your reactions, behaviour and also break the cycle which has been holding you back.
For example, if you are a normally even tempered person but feeling really angry and pushed this last few weeks because of how people have treated you or situations you have been in, then its time to change your attitude towards confrontations. Instead of avoiding it completely, the time has come for you to work through it and find a positive solution rather than hiding from it. You can’t be Mr Nice Guy all the time to everyone. You are allowed to express yourself, however positive but let the other person know you will stand up for yourself when required.
Those who have confidence issues will also see themselves going through a shift where they feel more “in charge” while those with anger issues may be asked to take a closer look at how they misunderstand, judge or confront people without thinking. You find it difficult to be 100% happy and this is why. Let go of the need to be “ON” all the time and you will have an easier time mentally.
To be honest, this is the time to really face your flaws, find new ways to work through your issues and make the changes for the better. This are your energy blocks and what is holding you back. Release it to the universe and be open to the shift.
The Universe offers us these opportunities every now and then to grow as humans. People will see this happening mainly in career and relationship areas.
There will be travel disruptions and I believe some due to electricity and miscommunication. So be prepared for sudden changes and having to make different plans if you are travelling in the next 1-2 weeks. Do not forget to take on travel insurance because when the energies are shifting the way they are at the moment, a simple trip could turn into an overnight stay somewhere away from where you intended to be at. You would obviously have to pay for unexpected expenses without an insurance cover. Try to not make any big purchases especially electrical items best to wait until after the 22nd of September.
Some of us are going to ride this energy wave a little differently. Every moon cycle brings a different type of experience to each of us. The people who were going through a terribly frustrating time last month, waiting on paperwork, sign off from some sort of an authority or trying to get people to agree on terms, will now find that these “blocks” have all lifted! But things will move at lightning speed and you will be spending the rest of thing month running around trying to get everything organised. You need to take action quickly and follow the momentum as its all systems GO for you! I see this relating to housing and people moving abroad. You have been waiting for something to happen and suddenly everything is happening at once and its chaos! So use this waiting time to prepare and be ready to move fast.
Take note of what actions you are taking this week. Are you unconciously manifesting your hearts desire? Put that into your wishlist to accelerate your dreams.
I am not going to lie, the next two weeks will be huge. People will see themselves pushed to the brink, made to stand up for themselves and some will be scrambling for time as things will move quickly. Write down how you feel, ask yourself the big questions, meditate, listen to soothing music, keep a journal by the bed and write down your dreams.
A lot of sleepless night with strong vivid dreams. We dream loads close to the full moon and often these are the dreams that matter because its your subconscious trying to give you hints about what you need to be addressing, what you really want and also, the Universe uses our Crown Chakra to heal, and transfer energy into our body. During this time we will receive help, information and clarity on our life purpose. If you wake up during this time, and immediately get a sense of knowing as to how to deal with a particular situation, solutions to a problem or take action, to initiate something that will change something in your life then understand that this was given to you by a combination of your own soul and the universe. People also find themselves dreaming about a loved one in Spirit. They come to visit us at these important times, to give us messages and also to remind us of things we have forgotten – ambition or even people we have fallen out with. At times they could also come to assist us in making our big decisions. I remember my father coming to me a few years ago when I was undecided if I should go to the Spiritualist college as it felt really daunting and I wondered if it was the right thing to do. I saw him sat around my dining table, with tea and chatting with loads of brochures around us. He appeared to be going through the pros and cons. The brochure was from the college which I didn’t actually have at my house at that time. But I later saw the same brochures on the last day of the course when the Spiritualist Union representatives were there to showcase their work as well of the college. So yes, spirit people do come around close to the full moon in our dreams as well at times, around the house to help us. Open your hearts and release your fear if you have any of the spirit world so they can come closer to heal.
Start writing down two lists – 1. what you want to let go of and 2. what you want in your life. Release what you let go of with something positive.
I want to let go of my judgement of other ——— Replace with ———– I want to take people as they are
I want to release my fear of being in control —— Replace with ———–I welcome the change to be a leader
