November’s Frost Full Moon Guidance

November’s Frost Full Moon Guidance

I am a lucid dreamer and I also receive messages through my dreams. I often find myself in very immersive dreams speaking to my guides or father, waking up with guidance that I share here or personal ones which give me clarity on a situation.
 
I keep a dream journal next to my bed and I write down what I remember. It has been very useful as very often it makes absolute sense either for the day or even weeks later. Writing it down means you can track patterns emerging, feedback on outcome and understand how each message resonates with your life. It builds trust between yourself and your subconscious as well as your Spirit helpers.
 
This morning I woke up with the words ” Force Majeure” imprinted on my mind. I wrote it down but it seems to wash heavily over my physical and spiritual body.
 
Force Majeure is Latin for “chance occurrence, unavoidable accident” or “superior force” and often used on legal contracts. According to Wikipedia “is a common clause in contracts that essentially frees both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event or circumstance beyond the control of the parties, such as a war, strike, riot, crime, or an event described by the legal term act of God (hurricane, flood, earthquake, volcanic eruption, etc.), prevents one or both parties from fulfilling their obligations under the contract. In practice, most force majeure clauses do not excuse a party’s non-performance entirely, but only suspend it for the duration of the force majeure.”
 
So I have been sitting here today reflecting on this message and what it means for me and, perhaps for us in general. It resonated firstly with what has happened in the last two days at home. On Monday the vacuum cleaned died, which wasn’t a huge surprise as it was on its last legs as it were. Although it is an expense we don’t need right now, it also means we will be getting a new, more dynamic cleaner that wasn’t such a chore to lug around.  Coincidentally, my new laptop had a serious systems failure which I found out was due to an Windows update that encrypted some files when the system was unable to (or says my IT expert husband). It was an expense laptop so I was very upset to think that it was completely fried and I would need to buy a new one. 
 
I was panicking inside but I decided not to ruin dinner time and went to play badminton with friends. I had a great time but I was worried. I got my husband to take a look at the laptop afterwards and with a little research, he managed to fix the problem without losing any of my files or data.
 
I went to bed thinking of this and wondering if there was some sort of energy flare that is hitting us hard, causing  electrical faults to come to light. The message this morning was related to my thoughts and general question to the universe. The answer was Force Majeure, meaning there is a superior force at work. A burst of energy surrounding earth can cause disruptions especially close to the Full Moon. People often find electrical items breaking down or trouble with cars or machinery coming to light at this time. Look at the photo of the moon I took last night at 8pm. There was an orange ring surrounding the moon, which I thought looked like the flame of the candle. This to me also strongly reminded me of Moon Energy which is a painting I created intuitively a few years ago after a deep meditation. 

 

This weekend’s full moon is called the “Frost Full Moon”  or sometimes the “Beaver Moon” which is dedicated to water and the coming of winter. Most of us have been questioning our own feelings – good and bad, our sense of direction and even relationships have been under scrutiny. At the heart of everything, is our relationship with ourselves and how we treat ourselves will reflect on all other aspects of our lives. The Frost Moon digs deeper on this subject and brings up a very emotional theme, from last month’s New Moon. Most of us have been running on auto pilot, not acknowledging our feelings or wants, just letting life go past us. Our soul purpose/mission will not allow that, in fact intervention is necessary to put us on our right course again. So ask yourself, what are you trying to suppress?  What are you failing to acknowledge? Are you failing to deal with your grief, let go of something or someone? Sit and reflect and the answers will come to you. Be true to yourself and see it for what it is. You may be feeling like you need to cry recently and you know what? Sometimes tears can really release pent up emotions and give you clarity.  As water based souls, full moons can be dehydrating so ensure you increase your intake of water.
Saturday’s full moon falls on a number “4” day which relates to practicality but also focus is emphasised on the home life which relates to the emotional theme that surrounds this moon. You are being asked to be practical and organised when dealing with things at home. Home life will take priority so if things change and you end up not doing what you were supposed to be doing, then just go with the flow. No use fighting something you have no control over.
The full moon is in Taurus this month which explains why we are all feeling a little tender and sensitive. Venus is also an influence at this time so romantic feelings and looking at the past with rose tinted glasses will be something we will be doing a lot of. Your subconscious will try to make you look at relationships clearly and for those who are sensitive, you will become acutely aware of where the negative energy comes from.
 
“4” is a number of chance so be prepared for things out of your control. Fighting it can only lead to frustration and resentment. This day also encourages you to create and shape your future so put your practicality and wisdom to work. It is also worth mentioning the “Force Majeure” again, as the water element popped into my mind as I am writing this. Water damage can be one of the issue we could be facing at this time. Either by natural forces of by something that has been an unknown issue but will come to light and cause some damage. If you know there is a problem around the house be proactive and not try to sweep it under the carpet, hoping it will go away. I do feel there may be problems with wind damage as well. Its not so clear to me right now but I can feel the sheer force of the wind around me. Interesting to see how it will play out. I think most of the storms around the UK at least have eased off a little so I do hope I am totally wrong as so many have suffered recently around the world.
 
 
 
So what is the theme for this month’s full moon? Deal with your emotions, be prepared for the unexpected and start beavering away to prepare for winter. Time to get productive and balance our emotions so it doesn’t get in the way of our dreams.
May’s Super “New Moon” Message: We Are Only Human Afterall

May’s Super “New Moon” Message: We Are Only Human Afterall

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. 

 

Solar Eclipse & February’s New Moon – Energy Guide

Solar Eclipse & February’s New Moon – Energy Guide

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?

  1. 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. 
  2. Hydrate – drink the recommended amount of water each day as your body needs it right now
  3. 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? 
  4. 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.
  5. 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,

New Year – New Gratitude Jar

7 Things you must do this New Moon!

7 Things you must do this New Moon!

Super charge your ability to manifest and “let go” of things using the Goddess Energy and New Moonhappy-deepavali-2016-photos

Deepavali is the time of enlightenment, love, family, friendship and happiness. It is also a very sparkly and bright time as people will be wearing very colourful and shiny clothes, tables heaving with delicious food, fireworks and light lamps everywhere.
 
It is called the “Festival of Lights” (Deepa means lamp/light and vali means the path or in some interpretations, row).
 
This year it falls on Sunday, October 30th, 2016. Deepavali is the celebration of light over darkness. A time to rejoice as good has won over evil.
 
Houses are cleaned, things thrown or given away, sweets and special food made, invitations sent out, prayers and rituals observed.

So what is the myth or history as to why this wonderful festival the highlight of the Hindu calendar?

Rama & Sita’s return to Ayodhya

One of the main legend behind the celebration is the Return of Sri Ram To Ayodhya. The prince of Ayodhya , Lord Sri Ram’s wife Sita was kidnapped by the evil King of Lamka, Ravana.  Like any loving husband, he tried o free his wife. This turned into a  full fledged war but Sri Ram and his supporters managed to save his wife and defeat the evil King. When they made their way back to Ayodhya, exhausted but relieved, they were greeted by a show of support and love by their subjects. All the houses were light and little diyas (earthen light lamps) lined the path into the kingdom. The love of Sita and Ram is legendary and the people showered them with love, light and flowers to welcome them back.
 
Deepavali is also the incarnation of the  Goddess Lakshmi which falls on the new moon day ( Oct 30th). She is the Goddess of prosperity and brings with her moon energy. She apparently appeared during tussle between the demons and the Gods above the sea, causing deep unrest in the tides and fear in the people around. Her incarnation brought peace, harmony and good news to earth. Today she is worshiped by Hindus and even those who may not know of her significance, as the Goddess to pray for wealth and feminine energy. Lakshmi is traditionally worshiped through a special “puja” on the day of Deepavali. People tend to leave sweets and flowers around her pictures or statue and ask to be blessed with wealth and happiness for the coming year.
 
The death of Narakasura
Krishna said. ‘Narakasura! This is Satyabama…She is actually an incarnation of Bhumadevi…’ Both Satyabama and Narakasura looked at Krishna with surprise as Krishna continued, ‘She incarnated with the special purpose of defeating you…I could never have defeated you…Only Satyabama could…so I pretended to fall unconscious and the rest was done by her…’ Krishna said looking at Satyabama with pride. Satyabama felt a deep understanding within herself. She realized the truth in Krishna’s words. She took Narakasura’s head in her lap and cried out, ‘My son! Why? Why did you have to follow such a dark path…Why did you…’
 
Narakasura stopped Satyabama, ‘No mother! You are not responsible for my choices…I chose wrongly and you fought me for what you believed as right…You have done the right thing…I am glad to call you my mother…’ Narakasura breathed his last….
 
Even to this day, Narakasura’s death is celebrated as the victory of light over darkness…It comes on the second day of Diwali as ‘Naraka chaturdasi’. Diwali which is a festival of lights actually celebrates the triumph of right over the wrong…

What does this mean for me?
That all sounds great but what does this mean to us in a more spiritual context? Remember the New Moon is always the start of the “letting go” process and by the full moon, little by little, we will have these different elements to our lives – people, personality traits, behaviour, old belief patterns, trauma, anger, unhappy memories, pain and even grief that no longer serves purpose in our lives, become clearer and ready to let go. 
 
Everything is supercharged this weekend. Your clarity and vision is enhanced so you will have a clearer list of things you need to release and a definite idea of what you NEED in your life. Goddess Lakshmi is a manifesting enabler but she doesn’t discriminate. So if your thoughts are full of anger, hate and negativity then so be it. You will be unconsciously manifesting it if you are constantly thinking it. Keep your mind full of positive and enthusiastic future thoughts and this will be your manifesting pledge to the universe.
 
The significance of Good over Evil, Light over Darkness — this relates to all of us and spiritually speaking, it is a reminder that whatever your circumstances, light and good is possible. Don’t let your circumstances NOW determine your LATER.  It is very easy to fall into the very human trap of staying in your comfort zone. If you are in a bad place, it is also a “comfortable” place and so many of us find it easier to stay there because we fear the unknown. 
 
As someone who has dealt with depression and trauma for most of my life, I have struggled so much between light and dark. Yes, there were times when I stayed in the dark but I scrambled out in search of the light as I always knew there was a better place. The one thing that has made me stronger and wanting to live another day is HOPE.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Meditate –  Calm that busy mind of yours with some relaxing music, incense and connect with your inner self. 
  4. 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.
  5. 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 :

Goddess of knowledge and education

Goddess of knowledge and education

Om Mahalakshmyaye Vidmahe, Vishnupriyaye Dhimahi, Tanno Lakshmth Prachodayath

You can also play this chant which gives me goose bumps everything I listen to it as you do your Moon Ritual and chant along with the lady as you go about smudging and cleansing the house.

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!

Happy Diwali, Deepavali, New Moon and Happy Manifesting!
