I suppose we are all guilty of being hard on ourselves at some point in our life. Some of us are quick to overlook certain aspects of other people’s personality or habits but harsh on our own ability or weaknesses. There are times where this becomes overpowering and soul destroying. There are so many of us who go to extremes because we don’t feel “good enough” or unable to cope because we put such high expectations on ourselves. Why is the reason for this? Society, peer pressure or upbringing? I am sure it differs from one person to the other.
I was reminded of this, recently when I jumped into a taxi on my way to the monthly development circle. The taxi man was a young Asian guy who had Rag & Bone man’s song, Human playing in the background. I don’t always chat to taxi drivers unless they start the conversation, mainly because I am usually wrapped up in my own thoughts. I have always used time in taxis as thinking time. This stems from my time as a journalist in Malaysia where I would formulate my story in my head and go through my notes on my way to the newsdesk.
However this time, I really had the urge to speak to this young man. It was as if someone wanted me to speak to him. So I said “Is that Rag ‘n’ Bone man? Knowing fully well it was. He said “Oh who is that….you mean the song? Yes, I said and we got into a conversation about the meaning of the song.
It became clear to me during our short conversation that this was a message he needed to hear – that he shouldn’t be too hard on himself and he can’t please everyone. There was a vulnerability about him and who knows, this pressure on his shoulders could have led to emotional strain. We were laughing as the taxi pulled up at the venue and said our goodbyes. He was smiling and grinning from ear to ear, and so was I.
I shared this moment with the circle members and it was funny how the theme repeated itself throughout the meditation and inspired speaking.
As one of them said during inspired speaking …tick tock….. you can move forward not back in time. So don’t feel guilty for what has been but move into the future because there is no going back.
Today as I said down to write this guidance, the song that came up on my playlist was Human. I felt that my guide, an old Indian sage popped it into my head so I could write about this today.
The song came out of a conversation Rory Graham (Rag ‘n’ Bones man) had with a friend. Graham explained to NME in a video interview: “You know, people generally moan quite a lot about stuff that isn’t very important and it was like, if you took a little step back from yourself and stopped being selfish and just look around at what’s going on in other people’s lives and you soon realise that it’s just inconsequential; your problem isn’t really a problem anymore.”
So my dear friends, be clear about what you actually want in life, what is important and prioritise. We can sometimes go through life being upset by small things but overlook the things you ought to be worried about. Use this time to filter through your worries and reassess what you want so your next steps will be clear. Remember, we are “only human after all” with flaws and totally imperfect. That is the beauty of our existence. Every day we live is a learning lesson and a step forward.
So what is a supermoon? According to Wiki – a supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. From a spiritual and energy context, it is a time when energy is magnified. Some bring transformation that can be life changing and others, brings things up to the surface which may be difficult to deal with.
We are going to feel a little sandwiched and caught in the middle emotionally and energy. There is a good reason for it as there is another super “new moon” in June. So there will be things popping up this week, good or bad which will be released or completed in June’s super “new moon” on the 24th.
We will get clarity on June 9th’s full “Micro” moon and it intensity will ease off. How do you survive the energy until then?
You will be prodded and buttons will be pushed. This is a very transformational time so even if things are a little up in the air, trust that it is happening for your highest good. Pay attention to what is happening around you and what is the universe trying to say to you?
Our soul knows what is ahead and will guide us to where we need to be. Each and everyone of us have a blueprint of our very existence which is accessed by our soul and our creators. Every step we take makes one part of the puzzle fall into place. It is frustrating but the mysteries of life and death is determined by the laws of Spirit, which we don’t full understand.
Just to summarise, enjoy the here and now, look beyond the pettiness of life because there is a bigger picture for us to enjoy. Stand firm in your convictions, don’t feel you need to over stretch yourself to please people and look after yourself. When you are drained and depleted, there is no way you can help anyone.
Most importantly say yes to the right things – opportunities, ideas and projects.
Follow my Moon Ritual tonight to take advantage of this amazing energy and cleanse your aura and home.
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.
Love and Light,
So what is the myth or history as to why this wonderful festival the highlight of the Hindu calendar?

Guidance for this weekend and the coming week
How do we take advantage of the amazing gift that is being showered into our very existence this weekend and the week after? What can we do to ensure that we release, shed and walk into the light? Leaving behind all that no longer serves us? Entering the realm of a positive live, motivation, happiness and wealth?
Below is my power packed 7 step guide to accelerate your manifesting and letting go:
- Forgiveness – When you forgive, you let go and release the cords that are attached to you. It may feel that the other person(s) have won but in reality it is you that is winning as you no longer allow them to influence your thinking, how you feel and what you do.
- Circle of Love – be with people who make you happy and smile. Be very conscious of how people make you feel. Ask yourself after spending time with someone or a group of people “how do I feel? Happy, drained, angry, sad, belittled? Change who you spend time with. Be uplifted, happy, smile and joyful – not judged, angry, sad or down.
- Meditate – Calm that busy mind of yours with some relaxing music, incense and connect with your inner self.
- Moon ritual – Make some time to do my special moon ritual which takes only a few minutes to do but you will be surprised at the results if you keep at it and believe in it! Get your free copy here.
- Goddess prayer – If you have an altar then leave some sweets and flowers for Goddess Lakshmi. You can print off a photo from the internet and use it as your focus.
Say this little prayer :
Om Mahalakshmyaye Vidmahe, Vishnupriyaye Dhimahi, Tanno Lakshmth Prachodayath
Say this Lakshmi Gayathri mantra with an open heart and full of love. Imagine that you have this opportunity to speak to her direct and ask her for a happier and prosperous life. Believe it or not, but these mantras were not accessible to common people in India for many centuries as it was a huge secret among the the royals and those close to them. So we are indeed very lucky that this is all available to us so easily.
6. Keep your thoughts positive – When you think of what you want in your life – be positive about it. Just because things haven’t worked out now doesn’t mean it will stay the same. So focus on what you need in your life and believe that it WILL come through!
7.Connect with Mother Earth – whether you go out for a walk in nature, perhaps live close to a beach (or on holiday near one!) or just go out t the garden and walk barefoot on the grass – get close to Mother Nature. Moon energy is radiating this weekend. Get connected!
Today is a special day and in fact this whole week is going to be interesting as we head towards the full moon on the 16th. The universe has been conspiring to move us closer to our life purpose, stamp out limiting believes, addiction and even releasing us from relationships. A number of us have been left wondering “what next” or questioning what their life purpose is and what it is they are meant to be doing. Think about our life – from the very beginning to the end, as a large puzzle, and all the pieces scattered around a large moving and badly lit table. Here is the tricky bit…..you don’t know what the final picture is going to look like and many of the pieces are simply blank. Somehow you need to work your way through the pieces, find the right pieces to fit and figure out what the puzzle is supposed to look like. Now imagine this as you life. We have an idea of how everything fits in but don’t really know how its supposed to look like! This is where the universe comes in. It is divine assistance to push us in the right direction. From energy to spirit guides, you are shown little clues to prod you into the right direction. Some of us have strong intuition and total belief in our wisdom to trust in their decisions. Others will refuse any help or reminders from any other source that is not scientific. While others who feel the energy shifts will question everything and seek the truth. The energy of the full moon and planetary events contribute towards broadening our awareness towards our life purpose.
Each and everyone of us have a purpose. You may think your life is boring and haven’t achieved much compared to say, Nelson Mandela who has contributed blood sweat and tears to his country. We all have different life purposes and it can range from being the person who changes a parent’s addiction to someone who designs a product that makes a difference to our lives. Some people may leave our planet with absolutely no idea what their “life purpose” was. Does it matter? In the scheme of things, no. But if we go back to the puzzle, wouldn’t it be easier to put together if you knew what it looked like? So you could say that knowing your life purpose is like having a clearer picture of why you are here on earth.
A lot of people are buzzing forward with ideas, new opportunities and planning ahead this week. You may be getting downloads in the form of ideas, thoughts dropping into your head, names of people to contact (who could help you) and events appearing on your screens. You are possibly being encouraged to take a course that will enhance your knowledge of a particular subject which could lead to a job promotion in six months or a meditation class to tackle the stress that has been cropping up lately. Making that one decision can change the course of how your life is going now. So pay attention this week and if it feels right, go for it!
Today’s date is 10/10/2016 which rounds up to 11 which is a master number which often reminds us of a change and a reminder from the Angels that you are manifesting both positive and negative energy. 11 is also 1+1 = 2. Two is about having courage, trust and to have patience.
The universe is hinting that you must firstly be keeping a watch out for signs but also be patient and keep positive. Courage is going to be important as some of us are taking big leaps into the unknown. So if you are having a wobble then don’t worry it is going to be okay. You are being encouraged to take action and have faith.
Watch out for signals in the form of numbers as there are strong messages and reminders being sent. Comment below of you are seeing numbers and I will try to give some of you insight.
