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. 

 

Halloween – Veil lifts tonight between our worlds

Halloween – Veil lifts tonight between our worlds

Halloween – a time to remember our loved ones, be a little silly and celebrate our two worlds

Believed to have originated from the festival of Samhain, which was to celebrate the end of harvest and the beginning of winter, Halloween is so much more about pumpkins, gore and trick or treating.Based on a Pagan belief, that the doors to the “other realm ” opened therefore allowing for a closer relationship  between the the spiritual and physical world.Image result for samhain It was believed spirits were able to “visit” between the 31st and Nov 1st. Friends and family would offer a feast where they would invite their “spirit” loved ones to sit on places set for them at the table. 

This is not uncommon in Asian culture, where people offer up food and drinks that were favoured by their dead relatives. Instead of a place at the table, Indians in particular would mark each anniversary of their passing by setting a small area or table crammed with flowers, incense, food, sweets, drinks, fruits and lots of candles or divas near their photo. Prayers would follow and they would ask them to enjoy the offerings. After a suitable time, the food and edible items from the offering table would be distributed to everyone present. I do this for my father on his birthday and every anniversary of his death. 

If you think about it, our ancestors had very little science or outside information at this stage so they were led by all the things we take for granted now – the Sun, Moon, weather patterns. The most intriguing yet scary aspect of life was – death. The unknown triggered a range of rituals, spells, myths and superstition some of which still remains with us.

Samhain was in some ways, “letting go” of the old and being open to change. As autumn moves into winter, they would have had to start the process of preparing for the cold and dark. It is a little about ourselves as sometimes what gave us comfort, needs to be released as we move into a new form of existence. 

It was said that people would go around in homemade costumes to pretend to be the “spirits” hoping to get some food. Part of this would have been for fun and part, desperation as times were hard. Rituals, games, fires were lit and people were brought together to create noise and possibly dance. It would have brightened up the dark and cold night for sure!

This was over taken somewhat by the Christians and “All Souls’ Day was celebrated and of course in modern times, the commercial and expensive Halloween took over in popularity.  Both Samhain and All Souls’ Day is celebrated in a small scale by those who are either interested in Pagan/Gaelic festivals and by Christians who take the opportunity to visit graves of their loved ones.

We must keep in mind the true significance of this evening – the rainbow bridge between the two worlds is being built for our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, grandparents, uncles, aunts and even Spirit guides, to reach our world. What wisdom or message will they have for us? Will they want to join you for dinner tonight? Show themselves to us? Come and look at the newborn grandchild in the crib to whisper word of love? Or will they appear in your dream tonight to encourage you to take the first step to change your ways? Be open to possibilities? Image result for halloween

Celebrate the commercial side of this day (I did over the weekend. I love dressing up!) but remember to take a moment between tonight and tomorrow to welcome you ancestors to your home, ask them to bless you with their wisdom and open your heart to their love.

It is not all about candy, costumes, fake blood and pumpkins. There is so much more to it.  This is a festival of LOVE. Bringing our two worlds together and feeling close to those who exist in a different world.

So what you can do to connect with them? Find a comfortable space in your home tonight, light a candle, incense and have a glass of water next to you. Leave a note pad and pen by your side, close your eyes and listen to my special guided meditation to help you connect with your loved ones :

.You will only need about 15mins to do this so give yourself this moment to enjoy the rainbow bridge to connect with your loved one.

Remember you are Spirit, you are LOVE, open your heart and your mind to shine out bright. Please do leave me a comment here or on my Facebook page. Share with friends and family if you feel they need a reminder.

Love, 

Angela

 

Are you being guided to move forward?

Are you being guided to move forward?

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. 

 

Guidance for the Harvest Full Moon September 2016

Guidance for the Harvest Full Moon September 2016

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. 

For example: 

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 

The Full Moon will arrive at 8.05pm so please take a look at my free Moon Ritual Guide which is a comprehensive guide to prepare for the moon energy. If you want to learn more about manifesting, using the moon energy and bring about positivity in your life then don’t miss my Goddess Retreat workshop on Oct 15 which will be super special as it falls near the full moon!

Thank you so much for reading. I wrote this listening to the Gaytri Mantra, the powerful mantra that brings clarity, unity and love to all of us.  If you feel like doing some meditation then I suggest you use this mantra as its super charged . Just put your earphones on and listen with your eyes closed. 

If you found this useful, then please do comment and share with your friends and family.

The New Moon on July 19th: Bold decisions and Balance

The New Moon on July 19th: Bold decisions and Balance

You would have seen the bright, sparkly and powerful moon last night if you looked up at the sky. The light radiating from it was strong, vibrant and crystal clear. I felt a sense of calm and also hope reach me through the air and into my body.

For most of us, the dust is just settling and we are making sense of the aftermath of events that occurred  the last full moon. There is more clarity coming our way and with the male energy that comes with it, the new moon will empower us to be more assertive. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself making bold decisions and walking just a little more taller than normal. The energy of this past year has been building your confidence and now is the time to shine.

Put your best feet forward and make plans. Believe that it will happen and trust yourself to take the appropriate actions to realise it. You will also feel your sacral chakra more active than normal.  Your Sacral chakra is in your lower abdomen, just below your naval. This is your second chakra and an important one as it controls the flow of energy and is essentially your “core”.  Each chakra has its dowsacral-chakran special sound and we are lucky that the pioneers of yoga and meditation in India have made so much information available for us in this generation to tap into. Here is a fantastic free sacral chakra VAM chant meditation. My favourite person DhyaanGuru Dr. Nipun Aggarwal who shares so much freely on the Internet, with the intention of helping people, explains it and chants it perfectly. Please set aside some time this week to sit in meditation.

Meditating to clear and and balance your Sacral Chakra 

Create a sacred space by burning incense, light a candle or if you have one, a Himalayan Salt lamp or tea light. Try to do this when you are alone and can be undisturbed for at least 15 – 30mins. The best way to really feel this mantra is to listen to it on your earphones as you can really connect with vibration of the chant. Place a crystal in your dominant hand. The best crystals to meditate to energise your sacral chakra is  amber, carnelian, citrine or orange calcite but if you don’t have any of those mentioned, just pick one that is orange or golden in colour.  Cleanse it first by smudging it or with some incense. You will be thirsty when you finish the meditation so keep a glass of water next to you. Watch out for subtle messages or signs in your dreams that night. Always keep a notebook next to your bed so you can write it all down when you wake up.

Trust me, this is powerful, amazing and beautiful! If you have sudden urges to empty your bladder then do not fear as your body is cleansing and releasing. Please ensure you drink plenty of water. Lemon water in the mornings is great for the digestive system and for health. Obviously take care if its a symptom of a medical condition and check with your doctor if it continues for more than a week. This chakra is important for your brain’s well being in a way. It helps you with your ideas, starting new projects and also with creative endeavours. It also helps you balance your emotions and encourages healthy relationships with people around you.  sage

So the full moon appears in our skies tomorrow night at 11:57pm. If you can do it, please smudge your house and do your full moon ritual and then meditate. If you want to learn more about how to manifest and my moon rituals then don’t forget to sign up to my workshop in September.

Hope you have enjoyed reading my blog and learning more about tomorrow’s moon. Please feel free to leave me a comment or get in touch if you have feedback or questions.
