November – The Awakening Month
November 11, 2018 is a master number day so listen up. 2018 is a 11 year (2+0+1+8 =11) so Nov 11 is a 11-11-11 day.
11 – 11 is a gateway for new energy and this falling just a few days after the New Moon brings in an extra dose of light. November is our PUSH THROUGH month. Some of us have seen major transformation from personal attitudes, business, and changes in situations to even relationship statuses.
2018 has allowed many of us to face our truth. November is going to push you forward and help get you ready for 2019. We will receive a high frequency of energy and healing this day. So please keep your thoughts positive, write in your gratitude journal or jar. You have nothing to lose by refocusing on the good stuff and what you would like to welcome to your life. It is free and if it works then it will magnify the good and help you achieve your dreams. Equally if you only focus on the bad and the “it won’t happen” stuff then you are really manifesting the “crud”, the things you should be letting go, not keeping in.I have already seen some changes in the energy around. More and more people seem to be open to Spirit and spiritual discussions. We are being asked to be more authentic, pure and speak the truth. 11-11-11 is also a “SIX” day which is all about dreams, seeing clearly, and opens a new gateway to be able to manifest your heart’s desires.
So focus on the light and the love. This is special and a rare opportunity to truly focus on what you need in your life. People sometimes tell me that I make it sound simple and easy, this whole “keeping positive” nonsense and “does it even work”. My answer is always the same. It cost your NOTHING to try to be positive and to focus on what you WANT. It is like setting your coordinates on your SATNAV. It tells your SOUL what you want so it can guide you.
You must also take action. It is like wanting to win the lottery but never buying the ticket. As they say, you must “be in it to win it”. Do your moon rituals, keep a gratitude journal or jar and try to focus on what you want so you can receive double the amount.
Just like a magnet, energy is made up of positive and negative. So if you keep on the positive it will attract and bring more of the same to you and vice versa. Have you wondered why sometimes when one bad thing happens, a series of the same appears in your life?
The challenge is to not let the first negative event to derail you. If you show strength and tenacity to hold on despite the storm then you will make it out and push forward.
Keeping this in mind, use the energy of 11.11.11 to push through the storm and reach for the rainbow at the end. Now here is the thing, the WHOLE of NOVEMBER is scattered with this master number!
1, 10, 11, 19, 28 and 29 are all master days. I found October really difficult and slow. Things felt incredibly sticky and plans kept changing all the time. It was almost as if the Universe was playing with me. So yes it was incredibly frustrating but I felt the energy truly change after the 31st! By the first I had good news and things felt different. The same things which felt difficult in October is EASY now. So yes there is a huge amount of insight and ease this month. I am particularly excited as my birthday falls on the 29th which is another 11.11.11 day! It is not always that your birthday falls on a master number day.
Does your birthday fall on a master number day too?
If you have been experiencing some chaos or unexpected changes to your plans, these last few days then you are not alone. The Full Moon tomorrow does bring some uncertainty and is meant to wake us up. This happens when we get too comfortable and expect things to run like clockwork. For example I mixed up my appointments on Monday and was calling the wrong person at the right time. Luckily my clients do have a sense of humour and we got it straightened. Today I was heading to my office when I realised I did not have the key! Luckily I realised this almost immediately so I could run back to the taxi and he took me home. I found the keys which was tucked into my other handbag and found a £20 note which I thought was convenient as I had to pay the taxi and was running out of cash. I got into the taxi and he started to pull away but then stopped. He said, “You’ve dropped your money on the path” and yes, he was right! I dropped my £20 note on the garden path. He said it was strange as he caught it in the corner of his eye. We laughed about it and he said “well you are not having a great morning are you? I sat there and thought to myself, actually I am.
If I had realised I didn’t have the key when I got to the door, then I would have had to wait about 10mins for another one, by this time my first client would have arrived. It is nothing worse than standing outside waiting in the cold. I would have lost my £20 and paid £15 for my taxi which would have meant a loss of £45 BUT something made the taxi driver stop. Later when I was sat having lunch, I was proud of myself. Despite being all that, I did a darn good psychic reading for someone with everything spot on. It was being calm in the storm that helped me through this. I also had to laugh as I kept finding feathers all day – on the path where the £20 was, the lane into the office when I got back and then one flew on to my feet as I was walking home. I could have been angry, frustrated and totally annoyed that I forced to waste £15 but then it made me want to walk home as I felt I had spent too much on taxis today. I had a brilliant walk, listened to some lovely music and felt great afterwards. Today helped me realise that I was a lot more centred and calm despite the challenging day. I have always had anxiety and feel overwhelmed but today showed me something has shifted within me.
Finding calm in the chaos is going to be the theme for us this next two weeks because expect agendas to change, forgetfulness and everything turned upside down. There is method in the madness and you will see the reasons why. The Moon being in Taurus means it influences our desire to be safe, secure and resist change. The Moon meanwhile is all about change, transformation and releasing. This does create a push and pull feeling within us. How we deal with this determines how we progress in our path. This is a positive cycle as it helps us change our mind set, look at things differently and also open our minds to new ideas.
Secrets and desires – all those hidden away in our spiritual closet starts to get impatient. What are your secrets and why do they remain so? What do you truly desire? When is the right time to pursue them? Inner growth and the need to face our deepest emotions will be required this Full Moon. We are being asked to face our shadows and bring light into them. The more we ignore them, the more resistance we will see in our day to day life. Work on them as you will break the cycles you have been cast into. The shadows puts us into the victim, aggressor or rescuer roles. It is very tiring and draining to say the least!
As Venus is in Retrograde, it is time to review your relationships. This is not only for love but also extends to family and even friends. We will look at what is working and what is not. There is some excitement in this area though as many of us will renew our feelings for partners and there may even be some good news for those seeking love. Use the energy of the Full Moon to manifest your relationships – put on your wishlist who you want to meet and how you want to feel. Do your moon ritual before Friday, Oct 25th!
For those in a relationship – your self-worth will be in question. This is not a bad thing. It give you an opportunity to review and open up a conversation that needed to happen. If you have been experiencing a stalemate situation then expect the Universe energy to push you into making a decision or having to react to decisions made for you. Uranus will shake things up for us but it will leave us with the crud that we need to release. There will be some unexpected changes to the plan, opportunities that may come out of the blue. There will also be people entering your life this next two weeks. Yes it sounds hectic and challenging but just stay CALM. It will be OKAY!
There will be discussions about money. If you have been rather careless about money or disorganised then this Full Moon will teach you to change your ways. We are being asked to look at building our finances and the long term. Be open to opportunities that fall into your hands, which may not feel like one at first. Do your research and try to get as much information as possible before committing.
This is also a good time to be close to water if you can otherwise try to take a warm bath with some essential oils or some lovely scented candles.
Don’t forget to do your full moon ritual tonight, tomorrow or by Friday night. Sage the house, cleanse your crystals, write your wish list and then burn them. my FREE Moon Ritual Guide will walk you through the process. Please do share & leave a comment if this energy guide resonates with you.
Happy Full Moon!
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.
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!
