November’s New Moon – New Beginnings minus the “junk”

These last few weeks since the Beaver Moon on Nov 5th has been challenging for most. In my free guidance earlier this month, I spoke about  Force Majeure which is about superior force or something out of our control. How many us faced situations not unlike a tornado with spiralled out of our control? I know I had one where I felt I was caught in the middle of the eye. I was put under considerable stress and prodded to breaking point. Luckily self control and diplomacy helped but my goodness, it was intense. One of the main themes of the last full moon was “water” and this lead to very disruptive emotional state of mind and communication problems. 

Emotions were definitely running wild, within our minds as well with our relationship with others. Bear in mind that this year is all about transformation and change. This means that the change is triggered IN us so there is a domino effect in terms of how you get along with people, feel about them and even treat them. The change within will determine the rest. So yes, the next couple of months till February will be emotional and communication can break down if were are not careful.

The New Moon in Scorpio brings some stubbornness and determination. Don’t try to cut off your nose to spite the face in trying to “stand your ground”. Consider your options and listen to what people are saying before you react. There may be some truth in it or learning lessons so don’t dismiss everything as a negative.

Scorpios are generally very passionate, focused and want to know more. New Moons are the start of a new cycle and a fresh start to old problems. So think of what you are passionate about and how you can change your focus, to make it work for  you. A change in perspective brings new solutions that were otherwise hidden by our one dimensional outlook. 

This New Moon encourages us to “declutter” in more ways than one. How many of you have been feeling like you need to downsize or declutter the home? You may be looking at reviewing your friends list to see who has been “naughty or nice”. 

Imagine you want to climb Mt Everest but have a big trolley bag with you instead of a bagpack. You have the wrong luggage and too much of the wrong things with you, weighting and slowing you down. The moment you stop being stubborn and throw out the stuff you don’t need and only take with you in a smaller bag, what will be useful, will you succeed in your journey. As difficult it was to let go and get rid of the “stuff”, which are familiar and what you thought you needed, it felt good to have less.

Now imagine that the stuff you threw away were negative emotions such as procrastination, self sabotage, anger, addiction to food or substance or even people, stubbornness, laziness, passiveness or even defeatist attitude, or people – those who bring you down, encourage you to stay in your comfortzone, those who push your buttons, those who tell you what you “want” to hear, then your load will be much lighter. The universe can’t help you manifest the life or the things you want if nothing changes in how you live your life. It can push you into the right direction but you need to be in the right mind set to see the opportunity and to accept it. Nothing will change until we get rid of the “junk” in our lives, freeing up space for new ideas, people and emotions.

 

How to help the Universe help you?

  1. Write your intentions list – put down all the things you want to let go off. Be realistic and don’t try to hide from yourself. Put down exactly what frustrates you about you. Why do you think some of the situations occurred in your life? Be honest and stop blaming others. Put it down on paper and let yourself free. Take it out on Saturday evening and face the night sky and feel the energy of Mother Moon. Speak to her in your mind and go through some of the negative situations caused by your own limitations. Tell her that you are ready to let go. Say this three times – “I let go, I let go, I am ready to let go” Burn the list in a safe place and ensure the flames are out before you enter the house.
  2. Smudge the house using Frankincense or White Californian sage. For detailed instructions read my free guidance
  3. Cleanse your crystals – You can either drop your crystals in a bowl of filtered/cooled boiled water with some selenite to self cleanse or leave it outside to be fully energised and cleansed by moon energy. Use the water the next day to water your plants. 
  4. Declutter  – the house. Get rid of things you really don’t need. Create space for yourself in the house. Giving things away can be therapeutic. Put pen to paper to see who has been creating most of the drama in your life recently and ask yourself if you need to step away from them for a while?

Happy New Moon and New Beginnings to you all! 

The New Moon & Navatri – Facing our Inner Darkness to see the Light

The New Moon & Navatri – Facing our Inner Darkness to see the Light

The New Moon is often over looked when one talks about Moon energy. The Full Moon is well known and pushed forward as the time to release and let go. Moon energy, is a cycle in every way possible and needs to be slowly introduced into our auras as it triggers growth and change. If you do it all at once then humanity will be overwhelmed and sanity will be questioned. Everything that falls into our space has to be done in stages and gently. Even with that amount of care, some of us can be so desensitised that we rarely understand the subtle signs until we are faced with it.

The emotions activated the week before and a few days after the New Moon are usually raw, and very much in line with our soul’s mission. Every one of us are “spirits” having a human experience, with a purpose. Unfortunately as more experience we clock up, we also tend to be conditioned to stray away from our original goals. We may have been told that were are “not good enough” to be something or someone. So we stop ourselves from even trying a skill or love. This creates an inner resistance because although your mind tells you what is NOT possible, your soul is determined to lead you to what IS possible. So until you face up to these clutter within, we will be going around in circles and living the same story, again and again.

So here is where the New Moon saunters in each month, stirring up old stories, clutter and dark matter that we try to suppress. Things will crop up, people will crash into your lives, events will occur out of your control – all forcing you to run around like a headless chicken. You will then see changes, action and solutions by the time the Full Moon comes in. 

The New Moon is like the bad cop and the Full Moon is the good cop! There are events astronomically as well as spiritually that align closely to either moon phases that accelerate and amplify the effects. 

This month’s new moon falls on Navratri which is the Hindu nine night festival that ends with the “the victory of good over evil” which then culminates with the festival of light – Diwali.

The Goddess Durga, is worshipped through offerings, dance and religious events during this festival. Each area in India and their respective communities have a different way of celebrating from different deities celebrated on each day, to types of prayers, music or dance to traditions. You can read more here.

There are some huge injustices happening within our societies and indeed, the world right now. From human to natural forces, it doesn’t feel fair and suffering seems endless. It feels like everything has to fall apart, be completely broken in order for it to be rebuild and made complete. The guides tell me that there is a huge secret to be revealed or dislodged (perhaps something from underwater?)  and there is going to be big shift in world politics very soon. The strong will be weak and the weak will be strong.

New Moon & Navratri Significance 

Most of us fear the unknown. We also fear ourselves. Imagine standing in a room full of mirrors. Your image plastered all over, looking back at you with no where to run or hide. How many of us can say they would be 100% comfortable in that room? Not many I suspect. Shining the Image result for navratrilight within to see clearly, the things we have spend a lifetime trying to hide and hide from, can be a very emotional and upsetting. I know so many people who want a reading but are too scared because of what will come out. It is because they are terrified of the things they don’t want to face. When the light is shined on us, we have to take it warts and all. 

It is also believed that Goddess Durga was created by Lord Vishnu as a warrior goddess to protect the good people against the demon, Mahishasur. She is the combination of all the Gods energies and their power. The demon had declared that “no man” could ever kill him, which is why a female deity was created. Durga is the protector of the good, the women and children. She is justice and infinite. She is the light in the dark.  Durga is a Sanskrit word which literally translates into the one who eliminates sufferings. She is usually depicted with eight or 18 arms holding an object or tool in each hand, indicating that she is fully equipped and ready for battle.  Durga symbolises freedom from fear, justice, winning the battle, being alert and ready for anything. Durga Amma is worshipped for help with fertility issues, strength, endurance and positive outcomes. 

What to look for this week:

  1. Emotional – how are you feeling? Write down how you are feeling and then dig deeper – ask yourself why is this coming up now. What is bringing this up.  Are there changes to your mood? Being irritable and angry. Is there something within that you are not facing but driving you to react badly to situations? Stop and consider because when you react straight away then you have no chance of correcting yourself especially when it concerns other people. Tears will also be significant for some people as when you have been in a state of mind or situation for so long, it inevitably becomes your “comfort zone”. Make a conscious decision to “let go” and you will see everything soften and shape up nicely for October’s Full Moon.
  2. Physical Symptoms – as the shedding process get underway this week, our chakras will be activated and problem areas will be highlighted. For example if your throat chakra may cause you to clear your throat more often this week, and symptoms such as coughing and congestion in the throat encourage you to speak up, communicate your truth and not to feel suppressed.  If your stomach keeps churning this week (and not because of an existing medical issue) then you are being encouraged to let go of “confidence issues”. As the chakras work extra time this week, you will find yourself feeling very overheated and thirsty. Please drink lots of filtered water or lemon water. 
  3. Dreams – most of us have vivid dreams but don’t always pay attention to them. This week you will find yourself going through massive journeys during dream time. Watch out for the moment before you wake up because the messages and clues from your soul will be likely to be given right before you wake up. Pay attention to any lingering words, images or scenes you may be seeing or hearing in your mind the moment you start to wake up and just about to let go of sleep. For example I had a roller coaster of a lucid dream and the last thing I remember was drinking from an artisan bottled drink. It was one of those fancy combination homemade drinks like rhubarb and poached pears or something like that. The more I was waking up, the label started to look fuzzy but one word – “turmeric” got brighter and brighter on the label. I knew it was relevant as my grandmother was a healer and medicine woman. She used turmeric for everything and it was her way of telling me to consume some to help me with a health condition.
  4. What is happening around you – there will be lots happening. From people pushing your buttons to events completely out of your control. There are two reasons for this, one will test certain aspects of what you need to let go and the other is to push you out of your comfort zone. You will face these tests to either show you how far you have come, for example your reaction to someone may have changed compared to three months ago. The other will be to make you understand why you need to let go of a particular emotion or reaction. A situation will arise and you will regret how you behaved which will trigger the release. The moment you realise what it is you need to let go off, then the process will kick off within you. To let go, to change to evolve – we must WANT it. 

 Do these three things this week to help the universe help you:

  1. Mirror Work Meditation –  Take a moment anytime this week to do this powerful exercise. Find a comfortable and quiet place in the house where you won’t be disturbed. Have a notepad and pen next to you on the floor. Place a tabletop/vanity mirror on a table infront of you. Make sure you can see your full face in it. Listen to this beautiful music on your earphone Image result for looking into a mirror(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkM-FjfN6Mc&t=2367s) as you are likely to get the full force of the vibrations that way. Take a few deep breaths with your eyes closed. Let the palms of your hands rest on your knee, facing up. Feel the sound waves go through your body from your root chakra to the top of your head and back down. Slowly open your eyes and look at yourself in the mirror. Look at the image in front of you. Don’t judge your flaws or imperfections, just look deep into the eyes, take in everything. Just be and look at yourself while you keep listening to the music. Let your body guide you. If you feel like you need to close your eyes, do it. Don’t analyse or try to control this moment with yourself. Write down anything that pops into your head. You can do this for 10mins or 30 mins or an hour. There is not min or max time for this. Go with the flow. Look at the words afterwards and ask yourself what it means and why it was given to you. 
  2. Energy Clearing smudge the house, clear the clutter and energise your crystals tonight. For the full guide and detailed explanation – Moon Rituals Guide 
  3. Intentions – write down all the things you feel you need to let go of, including people in your lives who may be toxic, to be able to move forward. Be honest and be clear. Imagine that you have the ears of the powers that may be. This works if you believe and trust. Take it outside and burn it as you say in your mind “I let go, I let go, I let go of all the things I no longer need in my life” 

In summary, this is a time for justice, redemption and personal freedom. Things will fall into place, even if its not entirely clear how it will benefit you straightway. Some of us will begin this phase finding themselves trying to get “justice” as it feels like going up Mt Everest. Everything feels difficult and full of resistance but trust and put your positive foot forward because there is light in the darkness. It may not be everything that you want but it will be enough for you to move forward. This auspicious new moon will empower you to “follow your dreams” if you let her.

If you are open to Hindu deities then please do listen to this beautiful Durga chant song – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GuCDLdrvkA Listen to this in bed before you go to sleep. It is super relaxing and powerful. 

I love to hear from you. Has this resonated with you? Come back and feedback when things fall into place. Whatever your story, I want to hear it. Leave a comment here.

Happy Navartri and New Moon!

June’s Full Moon in Sagittarius Unleashes Freedom and Self Discovery

June’s Full Moon in Sagittarius Unleashes Freedom and Self Discovery

The Full Moon in Sagittarius gives us emotional clarity that comes from deep within our hearts. Try as you may to hide what you really feel about people, your life or even areas in the your life, the truth will resurface. This is the time to trust the universe and let her guide you to a more full filling life. This is because we have been cluttering our spiritual layer with “dirt”, the by product of not facing our truth. Like a rubbish bin that is full, there will come a time when you have to deal with it. Empty the bin so you have space for more.

Take a few moments the next few days to reflect on what you are not facing and what you need to release from you life to be able to more on. What is holding you back and what are you unconsciously holding on to? Do you have a dream that you have tucked away and refuse to accept is part of your destiny? Are you refusing to sign a document that will release you into a new adventure because you are scared? 

Full Moon in Sagittarius brings you FREEDOM from Within. Unleash those dreams and let go of things that no longer serve you.  

Use the Full Moon energy to discover your inner desires, explore your feelings and find ways to express yourself. Some of us will find that we will be focusing on passion and having fun this coming week. Sagittarius energy is playful and energetic so expect the unexpected in your social life.

Caution comes in the form of spending money. Unless its absolutely necessary, try not to spend money these next two weeks. Keep a hold o your money and stay clear of unnecessary purchases. The energy will lead you astray so better to be safe than sorry!

January’s Full Wolf Moon

January’s Full Wolf Moon

Our first full moon of 2017 falls on a number FIVE day which from a numerology perspective, a power day. The full moon this month is actually called a Full Wolf Moon. It was named as such after wolves howled at the moon in hunger. How appropriate that the animal symbol, the number and the energy right now have a common theme – personal freedom and releasing fear.
 
Wolves are animals of instinct, incredibly clever and have a strong desire for freedom. They are also highly connected to nature and need space to explore. As a spirit animal, they encourage us to trust our instincts and be guided by our intuition, not fear. 
Now, 1+2+1+2+0+1+7= 5. Spirit seems to be guiding me further into understanding the energy and value of numbers these last couple of months. Sometimes we need to connect the dots to get the big picture. I feel that adding the number to the messages of tomorrow will provide a little more clarity to this guide. 
 
The retrograde recently and the full moon tomorrow encourages us to face our fears, which in turn releases us to move forward.
The Number 5 touches on making sensible health and emotional decisions. This may be that some of us, as we do, put ourselves last on the list and forget to take care of ourselves. If this resonates with you then, find time and space to address what it is you are hiding from or mot wanting to face. Take little steps and try to keep to it.
 
Five also relates to us having learned important life lessons over last year which we can now put into action. It also reminds us that no matter how difficult the challenge, there is always something that you can take away from an experience.You may find yourself releasing emotional ties, even people and attachments that have held you back in the past. This provides us with more freedom to start moving forward.
 
So how do you tap into this remarkable energy? The full moon will be in our skies at 11.34 am tomorrow morning in the UK. Obviously it may be obscured by clouds but the energy will be crystal clear. Please follow my Moon Ritual guide which is FREE for you to access. Do it tonight, tomorrow or on Friday. The moon energy is most intense the day before and the day after. Tap into this amazing gift to us to help manifest your dreams.

December 29th New Moon – Embracing your Dark to bring in the Light

December 29th New Moon – Embracing your Dark to bring in the Light

Today and the three days before the new year begins, is an window of opportunity to “let go” and shift our consciousness to acknowledging the dark side of our nature, understanding why and then moving forward.

It is important to see our flaws, in what every shape or form it may take, in order for us to improve and develop both mentally and spiritually. If we shy away from our dark side then we will never be able to work on what drives us away from success, love or life itself.

Your dark side may be something so small in your eyes but has huge influence on your actions and internal struggle. Imagine a computer and all these “stuff” as software or programmes running in the background. Let’s say you’ve unconsciously downloaded a large app like Angry Birds. You forget about it and stop playing it after a while but the programme runs automatically every time you switch on the computer. Soon you start having problems with speed, a full memory and have issues after issues with the computer. Clearly, the app has a strong influence over your computer’s performance despite not being used. 

Angel of the Sea is an original Encasutic art by Angela Mitchell

These “stuff” that we clutter our hearts and minds with are like that app. It runs in the background, influencing us whether we want it or not!

Now think about what is limiting you and how is it affecting you? Is it influencing your judgement? Decision making or perhaps attracting the wrong people into your life? What is it that you need to change or remove to be able to do better in 2017?

What blocks are you putting in your way to sabotage your ability to manifest your dreams? This is important to work on as 2017 is a very active year and you want to start with a clear mind and let go of the inner conflict.

I am talking about – fear, being scared of success, telling yourself that you can’t do something, being too passive, not taking personal responsibility, fear of change, anger, jealousy, resentment or holding onto things etc.

It could be something as insignificant such as not listening to people. How does this affect you? Well it can in so many ways, from fractured relationships because you are seen as being “insensitive” to missing opportunities. You could be a bystander in your own life because you don’t participate. The thing is, you have a stake in your life and only you can decide on how you want to be involved. If you are happy with the way things are fine but if you are frustrated with how people perceive you or feel a general sense of unhappiness then it’s time to scrutinise how you treat people.

Some people create massive blocks by just the language they use. I know someone who is always wanting lots of money but just as soon as he says it, will follow with “ ….as if that would happen”  It tells the universe and your own soul that you don’t believe in your ability to work towards the financial success and everything you end up doing will be like a wild goose chase.

So you see these things that we need to change or let go of, vary and have different effect on each individual. You have to look within yourselves and discover it. This is why the “inner journey” is the important life changing and crucial action we will ever undertake.

2016 was about endings and completion which meant it was a difficult year for many of us. It took many of our loved ones away from us. People will serious illnesses or have been hanging by a thread were given relief – transcending into the next level, away from pain and guilt. Yes, I mean guilt. There were a number of people who were dependent on others for their physical day to day care and it was weighing their soul down. It was time for them to go and unfortunately they also took those who were tightly connected with, in this life with them as well. 

2017 on the other hand brings with it new beginnings. For those of you who have made big decisions in the last three months of this year will be embarking on a new life or journey which will be both exciting and scary. There will be new jobs, new relationships and even new attitudes. Do you see how important it is to work on the limitations now so that you can get started on the new? 

New Moon energy starts on the 28th and goes on for at least a week. The energy is strongest on the 28th, 29th and the 30th. Please do follow my FREE Moon Ritual guide and start 2017 on a positive foot. If you would like to learn more about intention setting and getting a positive headstart for 2017 then why not book in for my one day workshop in February?

Don’t forget to join me on my free meditation and healing session on December 29th at 9pm on Facebook LIVE.
