October’s Hunter’s Full Moon – Leap of Faith

October’s Hunter’s Full Moon – Leap of Faith

Tomorrow’s Full Moon falls on a number “7” day which has a high spiritual vibrancy. These is one of those stand alone number days aligned with the lunar calendar which can be interesting energy wise. What will be compelling is the need to break free from the norm and to be more “individual” in your approach. A word of warning through, as this could lead to fractious relationships and situations. 

Plan and do your leg work before acting as there is a tendency to be reckless at times when these sort of days appear in our lives. Nothing to worry about, just double check everything and think things through before acting. 

The Full Moon falls on 5.10.2017 which if we added the numbers up, 5+1+0+2+0+1+7= 16, totals to the number 7. Seven brings solid foundations, spiritual pursuits and a hunger to learn more about your personal direction and universal energy. Most of us will find that we want to “shine” and be heard not just seen. This is the time to step out of the shadows and be true to yourself.

The lunar energy of 2017 has so far been pushing and prodding us to get to this point where we can let go of fear and to stop being comfortable in the shadow aspect of our personality. The time has come, with the help of the universe, Spirit and the powers that may be to step forward and be counted.

*If you have been feeling a little spaced out or like you are about to get a cold but never does happen, then listen up. This means that you may have a number of things on your mind, and struggling to focus on one productive thought or project which could push you forward. Decision making is not your strongest point and you are likely to be led rather to lead. Tomorrow’s energy will nudge you out of your comfort zone and force you to make a decision. So take charge, put everything on paper and go through the list and let your intuition guide you. 

*The other physical symptom some of us have been experiencing and which is rather common during the lunar cycle is headaches. Our natural instinct, consciously or unconsciously in the face of change, is to resist. The lunar energy will be draining as it will be using up energy from within our physical body. This reduces our water content and causes us to be dehydrated, which we know leads to headaches and imbalance. It is always a good idea to increase our intake of filtered warm or room temperature water close to the New or Full moon.  Lunar cycles enhance our ability to detox and rid ourselves of limiting believes and the shadow, which inevitably will cause our body to detox as well. Water will accelerate the process and flush everything out. The more spiritual rationale for headaches close to a lunar cycle is resistance and mental conflict. It is likely that you are over thinking something and putting a considerable amount of stress on yourself for no reason other than to want “perfection”. You are likely someone who feels they “have to” rather than “want to” therefore piling on the stress to be everything to everyone. The more you left go of this need to be perfect, the headaches will ease this week and you will find clarity and determination.

Over arching Spiritual Message for Oct 5th Full Moon

The message for this full moon cuts deep into our core, the essence of who we are and where we want to go. If you act on your feelings, learn from it and use this guide then transformation is possible. There is a call now to stand up in your own two feet, to be an individual rather than to hide behind others. The time is ripe for you to take charge of your life and your career. You CAN do it on your own. 

Leap of Faith An original acrylic painting by Angela Mitchell

The energy is particularly powerful and can, often be life changing if tapped into properly. Stop hesitating and use your practical and sensible self to clearly etch out a plan. Big yourself up at work and stand out!

This is also the time to put yourself FIRST. Bump yourself up on the list of priorities and make yourself the VIP of your own life. Stop running around for others. Look after yourself, be kind to yourself and be there for YOU. So go book a spa day, treat yourself to a nice lunch, create space in the house for your hobby, spend some time on your own, go out and have fun or even just get your hair done! Do all the things you have put off because you don’t have time, money or that others need it more.  

The Hunter’s Moon appears on our skies earlier than regular full moons which means the dusky sky is illuminated brilliantly by the full moon (weather permitting!) which gave the Native Americans in ancient times, more time to hunt. This is the signal for the winter preparation. This means in our modern times, that we are given a unique opportunity to take a leap of faith and to be true to ourselves. The bright light of the moon will illuminate our shadow self to transform and learn. Tomorrow’s moon will give you the strength and conviction to step up and let the light shine on you for once.

Take advantage of this gift from the universe and do the full moon ritual to accelerate the energy right now. Follow the steps on the guide here or if you want an in depth explanation on how to cleanse your crystals, smudge the house and to write your wishlist then read my complete moon ritual guide here.

Seeing 44 or 444? Time to get your S**T together

Recently a number of my clients and followers have been telling me about repeating numbers. More and more people are becoming aware of how the universe guides us through dreams and numbers, to send us messages and sometimes to just validate our own thoughts. We often, consciously or unconsciously sent out messages to the universe, asking for help or clarity. The help can come in many ways from a poster, something you see in social media, bumping into a friend or a dream that takes you through the problem. Sometimes you are given codes e.g Angel numbers for you to decipher for answers. Angel numbers follow the numerology principles but with an added message from the Angels. 

You can catch these numbers on clocks, battery power levels, phone numbers or anything that catches you eye “accidentally”  and totally unplanned. Obviously if you wait until the clock turns 1111 and screenshot it, its not a message, it is your own will to see and catch this number.  The numbers and coincidences have to happen naturally and in the most unexpected moments. It cannot be forced! 

So this time I really want to speak about the number 4 and how it relates to our lives right now. The number four is a very solid and dignified number that brings order to our world. If you have been seeing 4, 44 or 444 then it is likely that the solution to what you are struggling with is to get things in order or as I like to say it, “get your S**T together”. It also may well be that you have been neglecting the practical side of your life and being too whimsical lately.

There may be a sense of urgency attached to why you are seeing this now. If you see it repeating several times a day or weeks, then it is likely that there is a need to get things reorganised and in order because something will be coming up soon that will require your quick action. Some people get this sort of reminders close to the end of the tax year where everyone’s scrambling to find their paperwork and get their forms filled. Leaving everything to the last minute just creates extra stress and confusion. So you either take control of the situation NOW or let the situation take charge of You. 

So, if you have been putting things off then this is the time to get organised, declutter your desk and put things into order. Ask your Angels to guide at this particular time in your life. Reach out to them for clarity and energy to get going. Remember Angels are always around you but then need you to actually as for their help. They often watch and wait for us to reach out to them.

If you keep seeing the sequences then you also need to keep track of your thoughts as you will be given guidance through your mind AND you are able to manifest your wishes easily. For example, I found myself thinking one day, after a week of seeing 44’s, of what I should paint. I kept seeing peacocks in magazines, on the TV and even on social media. One day I was sat in the garden and I heard “peacock” and the more I thought about it, the clearer the picture became. I knew I had my answer and yes, the peacock was painted.

We have to remember that we are able to manifest both good and bad intentions. So if you constantly think negative thoughts about areas in your life such as work, relationship or finances, then you will inevitably bring this intention to life. The number sequence of 4’s remind you to keep your thoughts as positive as possible as you are able to make things happen. 

Good luck and if this resonates with you right now, then please do leave a comment and SHARE this article so your friends and family.

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

April’s “Pink”Full Moon Brings Balance and Compassion

April’s “Pink”Full Moon Brings Balance and Compassion

Pink Full Moon will arrive at 07:08am (UK time or 06.08 GMT) on Tuesday, April 11th 2017

April has been a mix bag of good and bad for most of us. We would have seen one area of our lives speeding up while in another, big challenges would have cropped up. This would have really stirred some big emotions in us while we tried to keep positive and moved forward, making big strides in career, changes in self employment and saying yes to opportunities. Some of us would have being going through the motions with a heavy heart burdened with grief or dreading the prospect of having to solve problems at home. 

Despite all this, we have stayed strong and shifted from the shadow into the light. There is good positive movement forward and the Pink full moon, will bring more balance. Our heart chakras as being re-calibrated and expanded. I feel some of us will have very fleeting feelings of being spaced out. Please seek medical advise if it happens frequently or involves chest pains. Full moon energy is strong and the veil between our worlds becomes just a little thinner during this time, allowing our guides and Ascended Masters to help us ascend to the next level of consciousness.

Why is this month’s full moon called “pink”? Apparently it was named after the pink flowers that blossom in April and symbolises  new beginnings, rebirth and hope. This is a special week as the Hindus are celebrating Hanuman Jayanthi, the birth of Lord Hanuman who was played a significant role in the Ramayana and Hindu mythology. He is a symbol of strength, peace and protection. the commander of the monkey army who was deeply devoted to Lord Ram. He is seen as the protector of the light as he fought against darkness and to save Sita. I really love the collection of stories and information here.  Although I was Roman Catholic, my mother was and still Hindu so I grew with both religions. I have always had affection for Hanuman and associate him with Archangel Michael. A few years ago when I was standing on a train platform walking towards the edge in a daze, the fast train speeding into the station, I saw a figure appear from the other side. I was pushed back and I woke up from my stupor, realising what very nearly happened. A few years later, sitting in my therapy room, meditating and opening myself to Spirit as I normally do before I start seeing clients, I saw this figure again. This time I felt the familiar energy and strength which is when I realised was from my childhood. It also then was revealed to me through messages in my mind, that Archangel Michael and Hanuman were one of the same. It totally made sense to me as I felt the very same feeling and energy when I stood in front of a Hanuman statue in a temple as I did when I called on Archangel Michael. They are both protectors, guardians, leaders, strong, Angels and highly devoted. 

The Hanuman celebration tomorrow is supposed to be extremely significant for the Hindu calendar. If you would like to take advantage of this amazing day then just find a moment anytime on Tuesday to listen to this mantra with your eyes closed and focus on your 3rd eye chakra. 

The full moon coincides with the beginning of Passover for the Jewish community which is about liberation and Easter for the Christian (resurrection of Christ). 

So what does it all mean for us?

  • Balance – Pay attention to your body as it feels like some of us may be ignoring little signals. You can only go forward if your body is also ready and able to carry you. So stop and rest this next two weeks. If could mean taking some time off to just sit in the garden, meditation, yoga, going on walk, extra sleep or treating yourself to a massage – do what makes you feel relaxed. 
  • Kindness – spread light. There is a lot of violence and sadness in the world. We often feel helpless when something horrible happens in the world. The truth is the power is in our hands and it starts with being kind, spreading love and being compassionate. Buy a coffee for a homeless man or woman, speak to someone on the train or the supermarket or drop a friend a message to see if they are okay. It all starts with a smile and feeling supported. Gestures need not be big or magical. Just be kind.
  • Focus on what you want and not what you don’t have. The more we rise above our current situation the easier it is for the universe to deliver us the results that we want in our lives. If you are in difficulty, then visualise a time in the future where things have changed for the better. The more you put your energy into this outcome, the more you start to manifest the shift.
  • Perspective – moon energy often provides us with clarity and the Pink moon will bring you the ability to see things from someone else’s perspective. If you have been struggling with a problem and feel blocked, then you will be able to see the “other side” which will help you find solutions. 
  • Heart – Venus and Mercury are in Retrograde so matters of the heart and family life will be important. You will be having a lot more heart to heart talks with people closest to you.
  • Self Worth – this will be a theme or potentially a challenge for some this next week. If you feel pushed into a corner or forced to face certain aspects of your personality, try to keep a cool head. This is being sent to you for your highest good. The more we hide from things we see as “flaws” the bigger it gets. We have to face our demons, slay it and learn from it. Keep your feet firmly on the ground and stay focused on what is important. Don’t shoot the messenger and remember its a lesson to improve.

Take advantage of the full moon energy and follow my Moon Ritual guide. You can do it on Tues or Wednesday evening.

Please feel free to share and also leave a comment. I love to hear from you!

 

 

Celebrating 169 years of Modern Spiritualism

Celebrating 169 years of Modern Spiritualism

March 31st is an important day in the Spiritualist movement calendar. Hydesville Day is celebrated as the anniversary of Modern Spiritualism as on this date, some 169 years ago, rappings were heard in a house in New York. The Fox family lived there with their three young daughters. This rappings were then identified as from spirit although it has been widely debated on its authenticity. Regardless, this recorded incident help to advance greater awareness of Spiritualism and Spirit communication to the public.

Spiritualism is the belief that spirits and humans can communicate through “Mediums”. Today although the main principles of the spiritualism as a “religion” cover the 7 principles, spiritualism means different things to different people. 

Spiritual communication is not a new experience. The Shamans, aboriginal people, medicine men and wise men and women have been able to feel, sense, hear and see Spirit. Over the years we have heard of witches being burned, spiritual gurus or even wise men who would have grown strong with power as they had a unique gift – were eventually penalised for their ability. A lot of this, in my humble opinion revolved around fear and power. Their “source” would have been keep a secret as mystery created an illusion of power and fear controlled people. There was no sharing of knowledge, no understanding of the Spirit world and even less, the evidence of life after death.

The Fox Sisters’s experience demonstrated physical contact and the willingness of Spirit to make their presence known. This sparked a debate and search for the truth and understanding. While people were at this time having similar experiences in a quiet way, the news of the sisters’s experiences spread and reached the UK. It had a large influence in the growth of Spiritualism in this country.

As a Medium, I would like to thank the sisters and the people who helped advance the spiritual movement. I am thankful as it opened me up to a new wonderful world of knowledge, discipline and understanding. There is a new era in spiritualism which is merging the teachings of the East with the West, tearing down the barriers to spiritual acceptance – FEAR and making spirituality part of modern life. The movement is working at snails pace but you can already see little signs – mindfulness and meditation is very much part of mainstream society. People are being “spiritual” without being aware of it. Meditation is now being introduced in schools, people are leaning towards mindfulness to help with their emotions. Soon the veil will lift and all will see the truth – that Spirit is always part of us and we are in fact all working together in the same path.

A little more on the Hydeville Experiment:

Taken from the First Spiritual Temple website: http://www.fst.org/fxsistrs.htm

Beginning at around the middle of March, 1848, the Fox family began to be disturbed by the strange sounds and activities. The children were so alarmed at what was happening that they refused to sleep apart and were taken into the bedroom of their parents. The sounds were so loud, that the beds themselves often shook. Every possible opportunity was made to ascertain the source of the sounds, but to no avail. Finally, on March 31st, Kate Fox made history. She challenged the mysterious unseen power to repeat the snaps of her fingers.

To offer a more personal sense for what actually took place during this evening, we are presenting the content of a signed affidavit written by Mrs. Fox on April 4, 1848. As you read this, see if you can envision mentally what transpired:

“On the night of the first disturbance we all got up, lighted a candle and searched the entire house, the noises continuing during the time, and being heard near the same place. Although not very loud, it produced a jar of the bedsteads and chairs that could be felt when we were in bed. It was a tremendous motion, more than a sudden jar. We could feel the jar when standing on the floor. It continued on this night until we slept. I did not sleep until about twelve o’clock. On March 30th we were disturbed all night. The noises were heard in all parts of the house. My husband stationed himself outside of the door while I stood inside, and the knocks came on the door between us. We heard footsteps in the pantry, and walking downstairs; we could not rest, and I then concluded that the house must be haunted by some unhappy restless spirit. I had often heard of such things, but had never witnessed anything of the kind that I could not account for before.

On Friday night, March 31st, 1848, we concluded to go to bed early and not permit ourselves to be disturbed by the noises, but try and get a night’s rest. My husband was here on all occasions, heard the noises, and helped search. It was very early when we went to bed on this night; hardly dark. I had been so broken of my rest I was almost sick. My husband had not gone to bed when we first heard the noises on this evening. I had just lain down. It commenced as usual. I knew it from all other noises I had ever heard before. The children, who slept in the other bed in the room, heard the rapping, and tried to make similar sounds by snapping their fingers.

“My youngest child, Cathie, said: ‘Mr. Splitfoot, do as I do,’ clapping her hands. The sound instantly followed her with the same number of raps. When she stopped, the sound ceased for a short time. Then Margaretta said, in sport, ‘Now, do just as I do. Count one, two, three, four,’ striking one hand against the other at the same time; and the raps came as before. She was afraid to repeat them. Then Cathie said in her childish simplicity, ‘Oh, mother, I know what it is. Tomorrow is April-fool day, and it’s somebody trying to fool us.’

“I then thought I could put a test that no one in the place could answer. I asked the noise to rap my different children’s ages, successively. Instantly, each one of my children’s ages was given correctly, pausing between them sufficiently long to individualize them until the seventh, at which a longer pause was made, and then three more emphatic raps were given, corresponding to the age of the little one that died, which was my youngest child.

“I then asked: ‘Is this a human being that answers my questions so correctly?’ There was no rap. I asked: ‘Is it a spirit? If it is, make two raps.’ Two sounds were given as soon as the request was made. I then said: ‘If it was an injured spirit, make two raps,’ which were instantly made, causing the house to tremble. I asked: ‘Were you injured in this house?’ The answer was given as before. ‘Is the person living that injured you?’ Answered by raps in the same manner. I ascertained by the same method that it was a man, aged thirty-one years, that he had been murdered in this house, and his remains were buried in the cellar; that his family consisted of a wife and five children, two sons and three daughters, all living at the time of his death, but that his wife had since died. I asked: ‘Will you continue to rap if I call my neighbors that they may hear it too?’ The raps were loud in the affirmative.

“My husband went and called in Mrs. Redfield, our nearest neighbor. She is a very candid woman. The girls were sitting up in bed clinging to each other and trembling with terror. I think I was as calm as I am now. Mrs. Redfield came immediately (this was about half-past seven), thinking she would have a laugh at the children. But when she saw them pale with fright, and nearly speechless, she was amazed, and believed there was something more serious than she had supposed. I asked a few questions for her, and was answered as before. He told her age exactly. She then called her husband, and the same questions were asked and answered.

“Then Mr. Redfield called in Mr. Duesler and wife, and several others. Mr. Duesler then called in Mr. and Mrs. Hyde, also Mr. and Mrs. Jewell. Mr. Duesler asked many questions, and received answers. I then named all the neighbors I could think of, and asked if any of them had injured him, and received no answer. Mr. Duesler then asked questions and received answers. He asked: ‘Were you murdered?’ Raps affirmative. ‘Can your murderer be brought to justice?’ No sound. ‘Can he be punished by the law?’ No answer. He then said: ‘If your murderer cannot be punished by the law, manifest it by raps,’ and the raps were made clearly and distinctly. In the same way, Mr. Duesler ascertained that he was murdered in the east bedroom about five years ago and that the murder was committed by a Mr. _______ on a Tuesday night at twelve o’clock; that he was murdered by having his throat cut with a butcher knife; that the body was taken down to the cellar; that it was not buried until the next night; that it was taken through the buttery, down the stairway, and that it was buried ten feet below the surface of the ground. It was also ascertained that he was murdered for his money, by raps affirmative.

“‘How much was it – one hundred?’ No rap. ‘Was it two hundred?’ etc., and when he mentioned five hundred the raps replied in the affirmative.

“Many called in who were fishing in the creek, and all heard the same questions and answers. Many remained in the house all night. I and my children left the house. My husband remained in the house with Mr. Redfield all night. On the next Saturday the house was filled to overflowing. There were no sounds heard during the day, but they commenced again in the evening. It was said that there were over three hundred persons present at the time. On Sunday morning the noises were heard throughout the day by all who came to the house.

“On Saturday night, April 1st, they commenced digging in the cellar; they dug until they came to water, and then gave it up. The noise was not heard on Sunday evening nor during the night. Stephen B. Smith and wife (my daughter Marie), and my son David S. Fox and wife, slept in the room this night.

“I heard nothing since that time until yesterday. In the forenoon of yesterday there were several questions answered in the usual way by rapping. I have heard the noises several times today.

“I am not a believer in haunted houses or supernatural appearances. I am very sorry that there has been so much excitement about it. It has been a great deal of trouble to us. It was our misfortune to live here at this time; but I am willing and anxious that the truth should be known, and that a true statement should be made. I cannot account for these noises; all that I know is that they have been heard repeatedly, as I have stated. I have heard this rapping again this (Tuesday) morning, April 4. My children also heard it.

“I certify that the foregoing statement has been read to me, and that the same is true; and that I should be willing to take my oath that it is so, if necessary.”

(Signed) MARGARET FOX, April 11, 1848.
