Goodbye, 2020!

As this year comes to an end, I am sure many of you are glad to see back of 2020. I do hope that we are able to unpick the good from the bad.
Values that may have been buried in the old way of living, led by material gain and a faster pace of life rose to the surface. Family, home and going back to basics have become important again.
We have learned to slow down and appreciate what we have and to make the best of our situation – something our ancestors did during wartimes and natural disasters.
I remember my mother telling me stories about the Japanese occupation of Malaya where all they had to eat were yam and tapioca – steamed and tossed in coconut. Sugar was luxury and if they had some, this would be very lightly sprinkled on top. Tea with milk or sugar was a luxury for most. They had to stay indoors or hide in fear so they learned to stay silent and listened to their parents. The lack of freedom and of choice was something I could not relate to at all. I also couldn’t imagine being stuck indoors with the family!
Years later, I would find myself crying my heart out because all I wanted was to be with my family – all together in one place. Not being able to hold my sister’s hand as I watched my mother slowly die in the US on WhatsApp, was hard.
The things that sold out, that people were stockpiling were toilet paper and flour. It became the two most wanted items in the entire year. The humble toilet paper that we took for granted, was worth fighting for in some countries. Flour – there is always so much of it – suddenly because important because people started to bake at home, more than before.
Even friends who never really baked or cooked were doing it and posting it on social media. There was a sense of achievement and satisfaction of having made something. We also learned to make do with what we had. In my household, we reduced the number of trips we would normally take for grocery shopping. We made more of an effort to reduce waste and eat what we had.


Art & craft supplies were also sold out in most shops. As a part-time art teacher, I know how relaxing and enjoyable art is but it was always a struggle to get adults to join in my classes. However, during the pandemic, I saw more and more people take part in my classes. Yet again, we were all taken back to our inner child – where art played a huge part in our emotional freedom and expression!
2020 took us deep within ourselves. It also took many of us to a dark place. I know I was falling into depression after my mother passed away. It felt like the hardest time of my life. There were times where I felt wouldn’t make it to the end of 2020 but here I am. Somehow as I was thrown into that dark pit of pain, grief and suffering, I found a spark, a flame and it grew and grew until I could breathe again. Deep in my solitude, I found I could live again.
I know many of you will resonate with this. I learned to LIVE again. I also know that if I survived 2020 and losing the most amazing and inspiring person in my life – my mother, then I can deal with anything now.
I also appreciate the light more now that I have experienced the darkness. How could we appreciate or value the light without having been thrown into the darkness?
So now in 2021, we need to spread this light, to overcome the darkness, to push it into a corner so that all we see is light. To take care of others, to lift others up and to put our well-being to the top of our list.
We have just celebrated Christmas and now ushering in another new year. It is a sign don’t you think that the Christmas star, possible the star of Bethlehem which appeared when Jesus was born, appears now, in the darkest time of humanity to light up our skies?
A sign of hope and guidance, to believe in a new day, a new day and a new year. To take responsibility for our health and to keep others safe, to learn from this year which will never be forgotten.

What’s in store for us in 2021?


In numerology, 2021 is a number 5 year. Simply put, it is about change, freedom, choice and life lessons. There will be a greater push for personal freedom both against authority as well as in relationships. After all time we have had to think and reflect, things we may have suppressed or ignored will come to the surface to be processed. So don’t be surprised if you spent the first half of the new year thinking about old issues and creating boundaries. This could be from cleaning up your friends’ list on Facebook, saying NO to people (nicely of course!) who keep taking to perhaps even deciding to spend more time with certain people.


Every January, the wellness industry will begin their campaign to shame us into exercising with discounts and reminders to exercise, juice, diet or buy their products for a slimmer and better you. I suspect this year we will see more on mental health wellness and overall well-being especially from natural resources and community building.

Channelled from my Guides:

My main guide, Yellow Bear stepped forward to give me the following: 2021 will see more division in Government but also within the classes. Each time I try to feel Brexit, I feel a sense of emptiness and I start to feel there is a big issue that hasn’t been looked at or discussed. I know its a crazy thing to say as its taken years and thousands of pairs of eyes scrutinised the separation. I wish I could be more specific but it feels like the UK will be at a disadvantage. Globally, there will be a big forest fire around March time. All I say about this is that it will be in a place with warmish weather. I will see if my guides will speak more on this later. I also kept seeing a plane crash in my mind’s eye. I sense it a private plane or jet, not a public one. It is more about who is in than what type of plane. Strangely I am also taken to the ocean and there is something brewing, in the South Pacific. I am not entirely sure of when it will be realised. I am not being shown exactly how or where right now.

So in summary, it will be a mixed year, there will be lots going on globally with threats of war and violence, I keep feeling there will be an unexpected change of power, I have to be honest I can’t be sure if its the Government or the head of state. There is definitely a shift in power.


2021 is the year of the OX according to the Chinese zodiac. This is the year to work hard, push forward and to be focused. So keep your head down, be disciplined, filter out the noise and keep going.

5 is an ANGEL NUMBER
In Angel cards, the number 5 appears on the Unity card. The message – traditional viewpoints or methods. Spiritual organisations. Seek out, mentors or like-minded friends.
First of all the number five, in general, indicates positive life changes, which will help you in the long run. So what you do this year will define you in the future. It could range from your finances, career or even how you teach your children. There are long term implications for our actions at this time. It is also a time to practise gratitude to manifest more of the good.
With the Angels influence, we will have more guidance where health and well being is concerned, both spiritually and mentally. I do feel more and more people will explore meditation, breathwork and even spirituality.
This resonates greatly with the message of the Unity card – to bring more unity to our very divided society and to seek more like-minded people. I suppose Facebook and social media has made us into friend collectors, gathering dust and negativity. We are ready to bring face to face friendships and establish long term closeness with a select few again.

Whatever that happens our dear ones, I know we are stronger, more resilient and flexible so we’ve got this!


Tell me what have you learned in 2020? What are you looking forward to in 2021?

Full Pink Super Moon in Libra

Full Pink Super Moon in Libra

April 8, 2020 3.35am GMT

This month’s moon is supposed to be the largest super full moon of the year, illuminating the dark sky with its light and energy.

The message I received about this Full Moon is healing & love. I feel that the days before and just after, old wounds will appear in our lives. This will cause some friction and even anger. Did you see something that made you rage with anger? Did someone take your ideas and pretend it’s yours?  Did you feel let down by someone? Has your ego been bruised lately?

People are understandably one edge right now with isolation, being told what they can and cannot do, financial setbacks to spending time with people they don’t get along. Don’t expect too much of people right now, as some may be suffering silently.  People tend to use social media to put the “good” and “nice” things but feel ashamed or too shy to share their pain or fears.  So beware of that still waters run deep right now. Be understanding and be patient.

Full Moons have this pesky habit of bringing up old wounds because somethings need to be healed, and lessons need to be learned in order for us to grow and help us wake up to our own spirituality.

So heightened emotions and feeling drained is common during this time.

It also helps us to differentiate between the petty and the vital things that we hold on to. The less attention we give to the petty, unhealthy habits or reactions, the more power we have to deal with the big issues.

For example if you helped someone and they let you down, then you have a choice – confront them and/resent them for it OR be angry – then let it GO. The first action will start a cycle of drama that could take over focus on the real issues in your life, and cause a divide between friends or family. There are no winners in this situation. Keeping resentment causes health issues and stress and I have seen this so many times as a healer. Our body absorbs the energy we put into it. Our cells have memories and so does our subconscious.  There comes a point where start to learn that letting go or as Taylor Shift says, “Shake it Off” actually is a more positive and winning solution for us.

So when these situations appear this week, look at how you react and learn from it. Also take into consideration the “behind the scenes” and motivations of people. Are they speaking or acting from a difficult place or are they just idiots?

Ask yourself, what you will gain from reacting negatively. How would not reacting or being kind affect your life?  When old stuff appears, it gives us a chance to do things differently. So take a step back and think carefully before you press “send”. This is a chance to HEAL the situation and to heal your own feelings about the person or persons.

For example, if you left a job a few years ago and resent the way you had to leave, but never had the chance to have your say, then this may be an opportunity to do it without the emotions clouding your words.  Your old boss may be in contact through a mutual acquaintance. This may bring some raw emotions back to you but it could also be time to let them know how you felt about the whole thing. You never know, she or he may have something to say that may surprise you.

Libra’s influence will help you strike a more diplomatic stance whilst speaking your truth. It is also helps with conflict resolution so expect some global events between now and May 15 that will surprise everyone.

The Full Moon is in Libra which is about balance but also about others, which with the Aries influence is all about our relationship with others.

Remember that Full Moons, especially Super Full Moons are sweet spots for manifesting. Therefore whatever you put out, you will receive. If you are putting out negative emotions, curses or wishes to others, that is what you will receive.  Be aware of your language and words these next few days.

Put positive and pure energy into the Universe to receive your wishes, hopes and joy for the future.

I mentioned Love, as another theme of this SuperMoon. I feel many of us will feel a sense of “no one cares” right now. Easily felt if you are home alone and social distancing. We should all be focusing on self-care and using this time to bring more love to ourselves.

How do you self-care? Spending time doing things you love, being kind to yourself and enjoying your own company. Not many people feel comfortable spending time alone. I guess I am weird in that respect as I really do love it. I have travelled on my own for years (even after I was married!), go off to the cinema, take walks, picnic and a good book in the park in summer.  I like the quiet so I can meditate, and sit in silence so I can hear my soul. I know, I know I am weird!

So use this time that we are given to read the books you said you would read, watch the programmes you never had time for, call or zoom the friends you haven’t seen in ages, be close to Mother Nature by working on the garden or just bask in the sun. Fill your house with scents of sage, sandalwood or frankincense.  Meditate, do yoga or do some art. Or if doing nothing is what you FEEL like doing, then go ahead. Don’t feel bad by others who may be packing their days full of stuff to keep busy. It is their choice and you are your own person. Whatever that you do, enjoy it and don’t feel guilty.

How to Release Anger Exercise

  • Get some paint or pastels. You can use any kind of paint – acrylic, poster or washable. Arrange it infront of you.
  • Get some paper – can be art paper, printer paper or from a sketch book. Best if it’s a little thick but doesn’t matter.
  • A fireproof bowl or an empty plant pot (not plastic)
  • Matches or lighter

Create a nice space – light some incense, set up a comfy chair with a table infront of you. You can also sit on the floor with all the materials on a protective sheet.

Meditation

Do the exercise AFTER the meditation above:

Select three colours that you are drawn to. Fold the paper in half. Put a little of each colour in the middle, in any way you are drawn to. Put the paper on the protective sheet and press down. You can move your hands in any way you wish.

Should look something like this

Don;t forget to take a photo. Let it dry and then after you have done the Full Moon ritual, put it into the fire to burn.

Imagine that all the negative emotions you have stored about a person(s) is in the fire and that you are ready to let go.

Don’t forget to add your photos to the comment section. I’d love to see what appears on your paper.

Blessings,

Angela

First New Moon of 2020 Ritual & Guide

First New Moon of 2020 Ritual & Guide

** NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS **
Jan 24 2020
9.42pm UK Time
January has seen some pretty heavy energy about which has affected people. We have been struggling and the days have felt very long and challenging. Depending on where you are in your journey, this month would have proved troublesome.
Did you feel like a firefighter having to put out fires everywhere ? We have been kept on our toes, trying to solve problems and yet, there was clarity on how to get things moving.
Sometimes we have to be in the eye of the storm to be forced to find a way out.
The New Moon will bring some harsh truths to us. We have to face them in order to correct our flaws, improve and be better people.
I always find New Moons to be an emotional trigger. We lose people we love at this time. Most people find this difficult to hear but I have seen a pattern emerge over the years.
Emotions run high and the energy feels dense. As I said, there will be clarity and healing as we go on.
Listen to your intuition as ideas and solutions are flooding in, however we must be ready to listen. Don’t bury your head in the sand.
New Moons always bring a fresh start to old problems. This moon brings partnerships and people to help with career or business. So keep your eyes and ears open to possibilities.
This could plant seeds for success in 2020
Don’t make impulsive decisions or do something to “show them” which both come from a negative space. Open your heart to positive words, ideas and see the good in people.
Be careful of what you put out whether its social media or in spoken word. If you are angry with someone then deal with it or process it privately. Putting it out there will only encourage gossip and propel you into dramas that you don’t need at the moment.
The Aquarius sign signals stubbornness and also compassion. So open your heart to see what you are holding on to which may be emotional rather than logical. This could be something that is holding you back. We are also being asked to be compassionate to even those who are against us.
The New Moon falls on the Lunar New Year on the 24th which brings us the Year of the Rat. Like the rat, hard work and being industrious and quick witted will be beneficial. Don’t put off something that you can do today.
The Year of the Rat is also one of being ambitious so dream big!
Here is my New Moon ritual to help you navigate through this energy
 

Meditation:

This New Moon encourages to be more heart-centred.  Meditate to this beautiful music with your eyes closed and with a flower of your choice in your hands. I do this with roses usually yellow or red. Just let your flow with the music and chant.

I guarantee you will feel all tingy, light and your body will soften with this gorgeous meditation.

Please do share and comment if this resonates with you.

Blessings,

Angela

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.

Much love,

Angela

September’s Full Harvest Moon in Aries

September’s Full Harvest Moon in Aries

Full Harvest Moon in Aries

September 25, 2018 – 03:52 am (GMT/BST)

If you have been feeling pushed, prodded and put out to dry, then you are not alone. The Universe energy has been redefining us and helping us face up to the gritty aspects of our lives and personality to make room for better things since early this year. You need to get rid of the clutter before you redecorate it. This is how energy works, you have to let go of certain things to make room for positive energy. It is easy to wreck a room but hours to clean it up! This is what the Universe has been doing for us.

The autumnal equinox  the first day of autumn was on Sunday (Sept 23rd). This is when the equator passes the centre of the sun and gives the same amount of daylight in both the south and north poles. The days get shorter and the nights longer. Equinox in Latin means equal light.

This is the time we start appreciating the light, knowing that the coming months will be grey and cold.  We can draw lessons from nature’s life cycle and keep a hold of the light in our lives.

Honour the light within you. Give thanks to what you have to build on the abundance. The more you pay attention to and acknowledge the light within you, it will encourage more positivity in your life.

If you keep feeling negative then remember that you will be manifesting more of the same. So be aware what you are focusing on and manifesting. It will be a cycle that will be hard to beat as it will be your default setting.

Don’t be surprised if you have been feeling like you need space from people and from situations. There is a need to keep our energy and space clean from others. You will want to keep to yourself and remove yourself from difficult situations. Relationships may suffer or improve depending on where you are in your individual journeys. Some of us will want space between us and our loved ones which may cause the other party distress. You have nothing to worry about long as your communication channels are open. Explain how you feel and why you feel a certain way and ensure they are aware it’s nothing to do with them.

There is a reason for this. We are levelling up and our soul is trying to reconnect with Life Purpose- the reason why we have come to Earth. We all have a different reason for this life. Michael Jackson was here to create timeless music, inspire generations of musicians after him and maybe even make us more sympathetic to people with skin conditions. I can see this with Winnie Harlow who suffers from vitiligo. While Michael was ridiculed and suffered mentally from this condition, Winnie is celebrated for her appearance. It is beautiful to see her on front covers of magazines as a top model.

Your reason for being here could be anything from being a lesson to someone in your life to writing a book to inspire school children. Until you are aware of this, there will be a pattern of resistance that will occur again and again until you acknowledge it.

There is also a fire element to this Full Moon. So you will be pushed towards finishing what you started. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of you have been surprised by how fast things moved for you at the beginning of the month. We have a very productive window until the October 9th new moon.

As Aries can be a little fiery so remember your energy can be a little over whelming for others and you need to take a deep breath before reacting. I have mentioned relationships being tested so just beware that you need to balance your emotions this month.  You will be passionate about certain subjects and I feel there will be plenty to discuss in terms of a shakeup in global politics. So just keep a level head and be kind.

This Full Moon will test your emotions but push you to keep going towards your goals. It will also remind you to keep an open mind to be able to make way for positive outcomes. You will also be encouraged to make time and space for yourself. You will feel emotional and there will be some crying. Old wounds such as grief and traumas will resurface for you to reflect on. Crying is incredibly healing and sometimes we need it to wash away some of the build up stress and sadness that we store in our hearts and minds. Physical symptoms right now that people may experience are heady feeling, almost like a cold and tummy issues. This is because the energy is hitting us hardest in our solar plexus and Crown Chakras. If you feel overwhelmed then sage yourself from top to bottom, starting from the top of your head down to your 3rd eyes, heart, solar plexus down to your root chakra and let the energy flow down to your feet. I have been loving this beautiful calming music to mediate to this week. 

Tonight is a great time to do your Full Moon Ritual. Below is a summary of what to do but for full instructions please read my Moon Ritual the most comprehensive guide to doing your moon rituals.
