Top 5 things to do to navigate through this intense energy
These last couple of weeks have been intense for many people. We have been caught between the lunar eclipse which was near the last full moon on Feb 11 and the solar eclipse on February 26th. The eclipses magnify the energy but they also bring about stormy conditions. Much like Doris which is causing havoc in the UK right now. In every situation, we have a choice – to ride it or let it take over us. Most of us have been experiencing extra vivid dreams, some of which don’t make sense but it can also be signals from your subconscious mind giving you clues as to things you need to release or deal with in order to move forward. Remember whatever we try to hide underneath the carpet, has to be cleaned up at some point! This can be anything from an emotion to maybe a disagreement to signing papers. These are the things that are holding you back and needs to be reviewed. It may feel challenging now but like the storm, once the sunshine shines through the dark clouds, you will feel much better.
Ideas and new themes will be abundant so keep paper and pen handy at all times. I remember saying this in a post recently and I reiterate – keep your eyes and ears open. The very structure of our DNA and physical layer is being upgraded,that we are being pushed to get rid of the baggage that has been like cords, attached and pulling us back into the past. This is why it is important to pay attention and record down dreams and thoughts that might drop into your mind.
Your brain and crown chakra’s energy will be boosted during this upgrade. This is also why people are waking up with headaches as you need to hydrate! Energy is being used up. Fuzzy head, flu like symptoms and general tiredness will be common until next week.
The eclipse season is here to highlight the baggage, magnify it to the point you MUST face it, and transform. Be grateful for this opportunity to “let go” and improve. You are also being asked to change your perception of people and situations. The reason for this will be clearer in the coming months. The more you try to suppress it, the bigger it becomes and then you will feel like drowning.
I don’t know about you but I have been having a lot of “AHA” moments. That moment of clarity of all the dots joined up together is priceless. Most of us have been grappling with huge challenges recently with nothing being clear causing confusion and stress. Trust that the universe has your back but trust yourself even more.
I do feel that many of us will feel like one hand takes and the other gives. Something difficult will fall into your lap one moment and just as we give up hope, something nice happens. This year is about balance and the universe will try to strike a balance in every way possible. There is never going to be a perfect year, just like we are not perfect ourselves but there will be little things to outweigh the bad.
How do you take advantage of this energy?
Keep paper and pen handy, especially at the bedside. Write down whatever message you hear when you open your eyes, Try to remember what you saw/heard/felt in your dreams. Date it and add the time you woke up. There may even be a message int the time you wake up – for example 05:55 is an Angel number indicating major life changes and that you are making the right choices.
Hydrate – drink the recommended amount of water each day as your body needs it right now
Pay attention to the people coming to your life right now. Are they from the past – that you need to heal the relationship to move on? Are people being sent to you to bring up old emotions or issues that you thought you have overcome?
Meditate – the best and simplest way to focus, relax and listen to your own soul! I have a selection of meditation music that may help.
Prepare for the New Moon – do my moon ritual which is free and easy to do. This is my gift for you and anyone else who needs it. Smudge the house to clear the energy, cleanse your crystals to energise them and write your lists.
I hope the energy this weekend will bring you a fresh new start, clarity of the mind and love in every way possible.

There is no doubt that 2016 was a difficult year, but throughout it, there were lessons to be learned, people to be loved, laughter, friendship, growth and love.
We have become more resillient, wiser, aware and open to new challenges. 2016 saw the UK shaken up by the Brexit vote – to LEAVE. A huge lesson for the country and those who like to stay in their comfort zones. We can take personal lessons from this situation. People tend to want everything to stay the same. There are many who will rather stay in a dead end job or a unhealthy relationship because it is familiar and maybe even easy. But then change is forced on them – losing their job or their partner decides to leave them, giving them no other choice except to change. Life will not stay the same just because you want it to. Be prepared to move, evolve and change or life will do it for you, painfully.
2016 has prepared us to expect the unexpected. This was evident in the US elections. Everyone expected Hillary to win as it was expected that experience would win over controversy. The laws of the universe is changing so has our rules. 2017 is a year of ACTION. We had spent enough time contemplating what we want and how we are going to get it so now the time is ripe for getting things done.
Don’t over think things this year. Try something and if you fail, take it as a trial run. People will judge you no matter what you do. There will always be someone saying something about nothing. So listen to yourself and be proud of your achievements.
Working with a clear mind will set your spirit free to explore. Use this surge of energy to move forward in all aspects of your life. 2017 is a “ONE” year which in numerology means the start of a new phase in our lives. A lot more pregnancies ,birth and engagements will be announced. This is the start of a new cycle for humanity after the completion though the passing of so many souls last year. We will see a lot more people embarking on new journeys some which will surprised everyone around them and others will decide to take time off to go explore. 2016 provided us with an opportunity to truly understand our life purpose and find our “happy”. 2017 will help tap into our heart and intuition to bring forth solutions for our problems.
The first three months of 2017 will be crucial for intention setting to set the tone for the year. There is also a strong call to put yourself first and look after yourself, from a mental, physical and spiritual way.
2016 help to uncover old belief patterns, self sabotage traits and even childhood conditioning that were holding you back. If you haven’t already dealt with some of this, then 2017 is not going to be easy as you will only be carrying it forward into the new year. It will feel like you are going around in circles and not getting anywhere. You can’t move forward if you mind is stuck in the past. There will be challenges but you will realise how strong and how far you have come, as it will be easier to deal with and get over things compared to the last couple of years.
Seven ways to tap into the energy 2017 will bring us:
Be flexible – don’t put restrictions on yourself. Allow yourself to explore and try things out without the fear of failing.
Don’t let judgement stop you. There will always be someone judging you, regardless of what you do so why stop yourself from trying?
Release control – things get easier when you resist the need to control everything and others.
Growth – there is an opportunity to grow, so try new things, whether it is dating, a new course or hobby. Do something different this year.
Say yes – to the right things. Say yes to yourself!
Believe – some of you will be embarking on new adventures – relationships, living arrangements and even career – be positive as it will be both exciting and scary!
Independence – 2017 will see some of us wanting to spend more time on our own, asserting our independence and even wanting to break free from the norm. A very individual and assertive time, embrace it!
Do more of “SCARY” so you have nothing left o be scared about.
New Year blessings to you all. I hope each and everyone of you have a wonderful and happy year.
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.
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

How to tap into the intense energies of the Mercury Retrograde, New Moon and Solar Eclipse in August
What is your intuition telling you? If you want to understand what it means and how it will affect you, the best place to seek the answers is within YOU.
Listen to yourself at this powerful time. What are the issues that are cropping up, are people approaching you for answers, ad are you facing things that have annoyingly slipped out of the carpet that you so carefully hid under?
The New Moon encourages us to let go of all habits, patterns and even addictions to food, people and situations. This is the universe’s way of preparing us for the Full Moon energy which empowers us to take action to bring about chance.
Some of these issues will be difficult and sometimes even painful to face but trust me, there will be signals by the universe for good empowering opportunities. The best way to harness this energy is to listen, focus and take action.
If things are difficult, then understand that these are the issues you need to overcome, release and transform in order for you to move forward.
Picture a road. Visualise the issues, difficulties or negativity that you are facing now as mud or even quick sand. Now imagine this mud all over this road. Visualise yourself stuck in the middle of this.
Now think about your options:
Stay where you are
Find a way out
There is only ONE positive option and that is to find a way out by CHANGE. If you are stuck in the same old patterns or blame games then you are extending that pain and not moving forward. It is like playing a record again and again, like a broken record. You will go on loop and nothing will be different. I remember saying a while back that at the end of every year, say on the 30th or 31st of December, people will say things like “I hope this year will be different” on Facebook, hoping the New Year will bring change. But “nothing will change of you don’t change YOU”.
We fear change but if we look at change as transformational then we can also accept that it is empowering in some way too. If we see the positive in change then there is nothing to fear and everything to love.
At times these hard to face things like anger, resentment, failures and even health issues but they crop up for us to deal with differently each time. When you face them head on, then the transformation happens.
I sometimes get messages from my followers when I share my Moon Ritual guide, saying they hope something will change in their lives or that a situation will become easier. When I ask how they have dealt with the issue, they have no answers. They are hoping that by following my rituals that everything was going to magically happen.
No. You have to take action. Often the challenges are brought to you for to take action and break away from the norm.
Create your wish list, visualise yourself celebrating and feeling the things you wished for. Ask for things that are realistic and ask for it in stages. The universe can only make things happen which are possible and things you can take action on.
For example if you want to buy a house, you must take action by viewing it, looking into your finances etc. You can’t magically own a house without doing the paper work or putting a bid in. Once you have made the physical move to “want” the house then the universe will have make it happen. For example help by a source of money you never even know existed appears to help you with the deposit.
Or someone asking for extra income takes action by say applying for a part time or freelance job which appears out of the blue. When your intuition tells you “it feels right”, or “do it” then take ACTION and listen to yourself!
The universe can help you by suggesting, prodding, putting things and people in front of you. But you have to listen, understand and take the opportunities. Pay attention to things you may view on social media and your devices. Remember the powers may be have to fight to get our attention these days compared to the old days when the stars, moon and sun were all they needed to pass on messages.
These days they have to compete with videos of cats, quotes, Humans of New York (which is brilliant by the way) and cooking channels. So when you see something inspiring or when your solar plexus start swirling, then listen to your inner compass.
There is only one person who can bring about change, YOU. There is only one person you need to listen to, YOU.
If you want to focus on yourself, then sit quietly with some soft meditation music or just in the silence. Feel your breath – in and out. Breathe in and then hold for 3 counts and then release slowly. Keep doing this until your body feels lighter and relaxed.
Focus on your heart as you do this. Think of your heart and then feel the centre of your heart. Allow thoughts to come but think of them as clouds that float from left to right and then, float away.
Put your earphones on and listen to my short audio recording which will help you through this exercise.
