Solar Eclipse New Moon July 12th / 13th 2018

Solar Eclipse New Moon July 12th / 13th 2018

The July New Moon and Solar eclipse falls in Cancer’s influence which means most of us are going to be pushed into making the core of what makes us feel secure – home, relationship, or money.  The root chakra, the essence of being and our core will be in focus. Matters dealing with pregnancy and the reproductive system will be amplified. These are not necessarily bad, in fact it will be positive outcomes or news. However if you have been sweeping things under the carpet health wise then this is the time to take action. 

While the New Moon likes us to face facts and start the shedding process, to prepare us for the Full Moon where we can “let go”, the eclipses’ role is more of one of motivation. It helps us move forward and accelerate the areas of our lives that we try to control or hide from, thinking it will go away. Just think of eclipses as you bootcamp leader – the muscled, super fit and no-nonsense guy who will push you out of your comfort-zone to achieve your goals. They come into our lives to shake things up a little because we often need the extra help!

Emotional issues will come into play so don’t be too surprised if you feel a little teary. Letting go and facing the truth of the matter is never easy. Embrace the tears and let go. It is okay to cry, it is very healing and can bring clarity to situations. I always find that when things are hard and I feel like crying, I always feel better and think better too!

This week will make you think about home – domestic stuff, your home and all the things that make you rooted, makes you feel safe and secure will be under scrutiny. So ask yourself what makes you feel secure and what is important? Is it food support, your past, how people perceive you or your heritage? How will you react if any of the above is threatened? 

I feel the eclipses combined with the new moon is here to make us reflect on what the deeper meaning of your life, what makes you feel secure and how much in power are you over your own life.

As I said, many of us sweep things under the carpet and hope for the best, from past hurts, failures, relationship with our family and even our own flaws BUT they do come back at this like these because they need to be HEALED and LET GO. Unconsciously you are still processing, holding on and being influenced by these patterns which the Universe wants to help us heal in order to move forward.

What we have to realise is that they will keep coming back in a cycle, month after month, year after year until its been acknowledged and released. So if you start thinking about the path – an ex, parents, a moment in time, failures or lost loves, sit and reflect on this and try to see the truth in the matter. 

The Solar Eclipse is your energy boost, the one which will push us out to change things. They push us forward and help us achieve more especially for those who have been stuck in a rut where work is concerned. Some of you may already have seen this happen the last few days and wondering how and why your luck has changed.

For women the theme will be about your reproductive area, mainly because the root chakra has been activated so discussions about your own fertility, motherhood or not wanting to be a mother will be a theme playing on your mind. This also means issues with menopause and periods could come up.

We are being given an energy update so shift has to happen. Change is here, embrace it and let it help you break the patterns that hold you back.

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!

June’s New “Super” Moon in Cancer – A Gift for the Heart

June’s New “Super” Moon in Cancer – A Gift for the Heart

New moons are often spark the beginning of the “letting go” process which culminates during the month’s full moon. Often those pesky things you keep hiding behind your defence shield start rising to the surface whether you like it or not. Sometimes the very emotion or action you keep nicely packaged in the back of your mind falls into the hands of another and you have absolutely no choice but to deal with it. We forget as humans that our experiences often shape the person we are today. It can be from anger issues to being too passive. it could also help you be a happy person who picks yourself up when faced challenges. Every single day creates another page in the chapter of our book. We sometimes have to flip back to the first few chapters to see why we act or react in a certain way in order to change the story further down the book. The new moon falls on the Cancer sign which is a nurturing sign which is very much about the “heart chakra”. So you will be dealing with matters of the heart as well as self worth and self worth issues until the full moon. Combine this now with the “super” aspect of this new moon, which amplifies the “letting go” process, you get a lovely harmonious and loving energy that will help you achieve your heart’s desire. 

So if you have been feeling or even asking yourself, “what is missing in my life” then this is the time to really ask the universe for help. You are being guided to search for the meaning and go on a personal journey of discovery. Have you been feeling there is more to life than this? What is my passion? If you know there is something you need to be doing or pushing for then, listen up! 

This is an opportunity for positive transformation even if it will feel a little transitional at the moment. Some of us feel we have changed inside, like there is a new sense of clarity that is encouraging us to take a step back from our current situation to review our choices now. There is a new door opening for us, a chance to transform and grab life by the balls as they say! The question you need to ask yourself, is are you ready to take the leap?

These last couple of months have seen huge shifts in our thinking and shaking off belief systems that have been ingrained in us. The seeds have already been planted as far back as November or January and reach a crescendo this coming week. Every little thought or step you have taken since then has brought you here.

Things will be clearer in your mind and you will feel the shift. Try to be calm and think clearly. Don’t let your emotions or past track record stop you from taking action. This is a good time to seek healing and meditate as it will help you think better and release old patterns.

This New Moon is about your heart’s desire and life purpose.  If you can’t make my special New “Super” Moon Fire and Ritual Meditation Evening on Saturday then please do follow my Moon Ritual

March’s New Moon brings opportunities and clarity with speed

March’s New Moon brings opportunities and clarity with speed

New Moon New Mindset

Light affects people in a way that nothing else does. It motivates, renews hope, energises the body and brings in growth. This is particularly important if you have been deprived of light, wallowed in the dark, crippled by fear and starved of hope. Imagine a marathon runner who has trained, strained and endured the distance. I bet the first thing they would reach for after water is a good shower. The layers of sweat, dirt and tiredness is washed away and replaced by a cool freshness and clarity of mind.

As the light envelopes us in the some parts of the world, when spring has sprung, the equinox already in the way and the birds are chirping in the trees that are coming back to form, the dark is over for now.

There is renewed vigour, ideas, plans and decisions to make. Some of us have had things in the “Pending” box for too long causing pain, anxiety, fear and being in a sort of a limbo.

Have you seen some rapid change? Yes my dear friends, there will be plenty coming quickly to sweep us off our feet.

  • Decisions – you will find that an external influence will force you to make decisions. This could be related to work or relationships but either way it will be hard at first but trust it is in your best interest in the long run.
  • Ideas – this is a very productive New Moon and energy wise, the answers are in the air literally. You will find yourself asking questions and finding answers in the corner of your mind. We sometimes go through life being very protective of our ideas and worries. I know people in the spiritual business for example can be rather guarded as they want to be the “best” and “perfect” so that people will think they are successful while grappling with issues in the background. Wanting help is not a weakness and it doesn’t tarnish your reputation. I remember speaking to a customer who is now a friend, about running out of steam where Instagram was concerned. “People post all these amazing photos and I don’t think I have anything of interest” I moaned. Little did I know that she was a social media expert! She gave me some practical ideas. I am so glad I opened up to her as it helped me so much. She didn’t think less of me because I was struggling with something.
  • Mindset – there is a strong message about self care, self worth and feeling good about yourself for the NOW. I had this message yesterday as I was feeling low and I did something nice for myself – I treated myself to a manicure with some lovely two toned nail polish. It made me smile and I felt revitalised. Do more for YOU. We go about life thinking there is a magic wand out there that will make everything alright. The solution is very much in YOU. So if you want to manifest and get things to shift in the right direction, then be in the right frame of mind to open the gates. If you don’t feel good then how will you even accept or sniff out opportunities? I know someone who keeps dismissing good ideas and suggestions because they are miserable. There is no way to make them see what they are missing until they figure it out themselves.  Imagine that negative thoughts, anger, limiting believes and focusing on the bad stuff as an obstruction in a vacuum cleaner. It’s going to as far as it can and then start wheezing and possibly burn out until you unblock it. Imagine your aura and your mind as being clogged and blocked. Clear it by being kind to yourself, meditate and focus on the good.
  • Pain – there will be some form of heartbreak for us. People in our lives who have been suffering will be released and taken quickly. Don’t be alarmed but when it does happen please believe that they were being spared. They will be highly sensible people with a strong sense of independence. I am saying this a huge amount of love and care as I know it can scare people when we approach this subject. Obviously not all of us will be affected but there is comfort in knowing that those who are leaving need not suffer anymore.

So in summary, things will move at a good speed, you will be looking at new ways to an existing problem, asking for help or partnering with someone who can help. I feel trust is going to be something you will have deal with. We must learn from the past but it shouldn’t dictate our decisions and believes now.

There will be people from the past re-entering our lives now and forgiveness will be another theme for us. You can only heal a broken heart, life or relationship with forgiveness so you can both move on.

Decisions or situations which has been hanging over you, being taken out of your hands so yes it will be difficult to deal with but it’s for the best. There is a bit of a clearance happening energetically so all these things will come unstuck. Good or bad, it will make way for a change, giving birth to new ideas or even an opportunity to do something different. There will be some good out of this so please trust in the universe.

Prepare for the New Moon which will be at 3.57am UK time on Tuesday night. You can do the following Moon Ritual to take advantage of the energy :

  1. Write down something from your past -that you want to let go of  (e.g heartbreak, not trusting people, anger, grief, feeling cheated, not feeling good enough etc) on a piece of paper.
  2. Write down on another piece of paper – how you want to feel (happy, trusting, calm, strong etc) and on the same paper, write down one thing you really want to manifest NOW ( a new partner, 20 new clients, find a house you like, children, a new job etc) You can be as specific or as vague as you want. Don’t put in things which have variables to it such as lottery wins. 
  3. Get some good quality sage or sage incense/ or Nag Champa, sandalwood or Frankincense and clear the energy in the house before Monday night. For full details on the Moon Ritual you can follow my FREE guide here.
  4. On Monday evening/night, release your first list to the universe by taking it outside and burning it. Say to the Moon (doesn’t matter if it is not visible, she is still there) “I release, I let go…….(what you wrote)” 
  5. You can burn the second list saying “I want to manifest, I would like to have this…… in my life” or alternatively, date it and leave it on your altar or somewhere safe. I do what I am drawn to every other month. 

New Moon blessings to you and your family.

Turn the Tables on Fear

How many times have you talked yourself out of doing something because you were afraid? Have you stopped from applying for a job after looking at the job description saying to yourself “I can’t do this” or decline a date just because of fear?

What is the one thing, apart from the obvious, that sets you apart from a toddler? FEAR. They are pretty much fearless aren’t they? They learn as they are growing up that fire is dangerous, fall off high things will hurt, they shouldn’t make too much noise, and most often than not, they will not get presents at Christmas if they misbehave. We somehow get reprogrammed throughout our lives with negative such as fear which then dents our confidence, self image and worth. Image result for fear

Most of us go about life with tags attached to ourselves which influence every aspect of our personality and actions. Imagine a virus embedded within our software than runs “programme Angela” or “programme Jessy”. Signals are sent out as to reprogrammed actions and reactions. Everything you do, say or feel may be influenced by that one little forgotten code.

Imagine for a moment that software is our brain and the virus is fear.  Now see how it can trigger and influence your feelings, actions and reactions throughout your life.

In a weird way, fear can manifest like a real person for some people. Someone who is constantly judging, watching and influencing you. It can make you feel unsafe, unworthy, incapable and simply afraid.

What works for me? God only knows how hard it is to put yourself out there and I do that constantly. Am I that confident? No at all. I give people the impression I am but I am shy and get very nervous when I have to face an audience. I am slowly letting go of fear and re-programme myself.

What you can do to help yourself:

  • Talk yourself out of fear – when you are about to say no to something that you know could be fun, good for you or change your life – have a conversation aloud with yourself. Ask yourself “why shouldn’t I do this? Or “Why is this a bad thing? And go through the pros and cons with FEAR. If you feel strange about speaking to yourself above, then write it down. This will be a good way for you to focus on why you SHOULD do it rather than the vague “don’t do it” that hovers in the corners of your mind.
  • Say to yourself “so what” when those negative thoughts pop in Create time for yourself – quiet room, soft music, incense and a comfy position. Close your eyes and go back to good memories from your youth or childhood. Think about how you felt – carefree, fearless, able, willing and happy. Think about achievements, how it felt. Go deep into the memory and really feel the moment. Hold that feeling and think about the one thing in your life right now that is bothering you. Now see the memory washing over your dilemma. Sense how it changes everything. Keep doing this daily and I sincerely believe you will see things from a different perspective
  • Our society and conditioning has created an over thinking culture. We analyse things to death and often to our own detriment. Stop yourself from over analysing and just do things without thinking. Obviously you would need to be very careful about certain things.
  • Sometimes its the small things that really affect us the most. It is not that being able to afford the dream house that is making you unhappy. It could be your image or loneliness. Perhaps you have always worn long skirts and hate your grey hair but too afraid to change! You could well be saying “people will laugh at me if I dyed my hair! In the long run, people’s judgement isn’t important if it makes you happy isn’t it?  We all struggle with wanting to meet new people but for various reasons, we find ourselves alone but don’t feel we have anything to offer to others, so step back.  We all have something to offer and we won’t know who is out there unless we try. Such a shame to not try because we are scared. So free yourself and just do it!

Why is it important? 
You know how people say, let go of the old to let in the new? Well this is exactly why. If you want to manifest a happier, comfortable life then you need to let go of fear. The more you let go of negative thoughts and feelings, the higher your vibration. It unblocks your flow and allows you to manifest and bring us closer to our soul purpose. Fear is crippling and fear can stop you from living the life you are meant to be living.

I hope this helps you look at something you are dealing with differently. I struggle with doing videos and I remember saying every time I did one last year “I hate how I sound” but I kept doing it and of course it was scary as I wondered if anyone would listen to it or who was laughing at me!  But these days the words flow I am focusing on what I am saying and the feedback from people who listened to it inspires me to go on. I cannot help feeling proud of myself.

Remember dear friends, for every one person who will judge you — there will be three others who will think you are amazing!  Here is the one I did on Friday –  Listening to Your Intuition

The Spring Equinox started tomorrow so expect some good news, action and clarity. Clear the energy in the house with a little smudging and sprinkle some Himalyan salt around the four corners of the house. 

Love & Light,
