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.

How to stop listening to everyone else and start listening to YOU

How to stop listening to everyone else and start listening to YOU

How to tap into the intense energies of the Mercury Retrograde, New Moon and Solar Eclipse in August

What is your intuition telling you? If you want to understand what it means and how it will affect you, the best place to seek the answers is within YOU.

Listen to yourself at this powerful time. What are the issues that are cropping up, are people approaching you for answers, ad are you facing things that have annoyingly slipped out of the carpet that you so carefully hid under?

The New Moon encourages us to let go of all habits, patterns and even addictions to food, people and situations. This is the universe’s way of preparing us for the Full Moon energy which empowers us to take action to bring about chance.

Some of these issues will be difficult and sometimes even painful to face but trust me, there will be signals by the universe for good empowering opportunities. The best way to harness this energy is to listen, focus and take action.

If things are difficult, then understand that these are the issues you need to overcome, release and transform in order for you to move forward.

Picture a road. Visualise the issues, difficulties or negativity that you are facing now as mud or even quick sand. Now imagine this mud all over this road. Visualise yourself stuck in the middle of this.

Now think about your options:

  1. Stay where you are 
  2. Find a way out
  3. Blame someone
  4. Blame yourself

There is only ONE positive option and that is to find a way out by CHANGE. If you are stuck in the same old patterns or blame games then you are extending that pain and not moving forward. It is like playing a record again and again, like a broken record. You will go on loop and nothing will be different. I remember saying a while back that at the end of every year, say on the 30th or 31st of December, people will say things like “I hope this year will be different” on Facebook, hoping the New Year will bring change. But “nothing will change of you don’t change YOU”.

We fear change but if we look at change as transformational then we can also accept that it is empowering in some way too. If we see the positive in change then there is nothing to fear and everything to love.

At times these hard to face things like anger, resentment, failures and even health issues but they crop up for us to deal with differently each time. When you face them head on, then the transformation happens.

I sometimes get messages from my followers when I share my Moon Ritual guide, saying they hope something will change in their lives or that a situation will become easier. When I ask how they have dealt with the issue, they have no answers. They are hoping that by following my rituals that everything was going to magically happen.

No. You have to take action. Often the challenges are brought to you for to take action and break away from the norm.

Create your wish list, visualise yourself celebrating and feeling the things you wished for.  Ask for things that are realistic and ask for it in stages. The universe can only make things happen which are possible and things you can take action on.

For example if you want to buy a house, you must take action by viewing it, looking into your finances etc. You can’t magically own a house without doing the paper work or putting a bid in. Once you have made the physical move to “want” the house then the universe will have make it happen. For example help by a source of money you never even know existed appears to help you with the deposit.

Or someone asking for extra income takes action by say applying for a part time or freelance job which appears out of the blue. When your intuition tells you “it feels right”, or “do it” then take ACTION and listen to yourself!

The universe can help you by suggesting, prodding, putting things and people in front of you. But you have to listen, understand and take the opportunities. Pay attention to things you may view on social media and your devices. Remember the powers may be have to fight to get our attention these days compared to the old days when the stars, moon and sun were all they needed to pass on messages.

These days they have to compete with videos of cats, quotes, Humans of New York (which is brilliant by the way) and cooking channels. So when you see something inspiring or when your solar plexus start swirling, then listen to your inner compass.

There is only one person who can bring about change, YOU. There is only one person you need to listen to, YOU.

Exercise

If you want to focus on yourself, then sit quietly with some soft meditation music or just in the silence. Feel your breath – in and out. Breathe in and then hold for 3 counts and then release slowly. Keep doing this until your body feels lighter and relaxed.

Focus on your heart as you do this. Think of your heart and then feel the centre of your heart. Allow thoughts to come but think of them as clouds that float from left to right and then, float away.  

Put your earphones on and listen to my short audio recording which will help you through this exercise.  

As always please do drop me a message if you found this useful and if it resonated with you. If you want to learn more, please do sign up for my next workshop which is view-able on my Events page.

With love,

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.

 

Blue Moon – or should we call it the Truth Moon?

Blue Moon – or should we call it the Truth Moon?

I recently talked about our life purpose and about speaking the truth in my blog post – Life Purpose  It was one of my full blown channeled writing for which I received lots of great feedback and lovely messages by people who resonated with my writing. I am always very touched and humbled when this happens. 

Well we are coming to full circle this weekend, starting with tomorrow’s full moon which is also called the “blue moon”. This is an important but emotional full moon for the sensitive, empath and those with fiery tempers. Things have been cropping up to challenge you lately from people pushing you for answers to finding out the truth a situation, the motives behind certain situations which has been hidden from you. The challenge is not what you are being faced with – it is HOW you deal or face it which will make the difference. Your spiritual lesson this weekend is about options and perspective. Use it to your advantage. You may well surprise yourself and realise how you have changed! 

The Blue Moon isn’t actually blue but WIKI suggests its related to the fact its a rare occurrence of 13 moons a year rather than 12 and perhaps this is where “once in a blue moon” comes from. The spiritual meaning relates to the Throat chakra which influences our communications and the “truth”. This is your time to shine and be brave. Take the bull by the horns and get yourself into gear.  Stop being led and be the one leading. I sense a lot people cutting ties with people and situations which no longer serve their highest good. Some of you may feel like everything is crumbling under your feet but please believe that you are strong, able and finally free to do what you want. Don’t be afraid, be positive and see every challenge as a reason to succeed. 

If it all gets a little too much then go back to basics – take a deep breath, take a walk, listen to music – do whatever you need to do to keep calm.  Take your time, rest, drink plenty of water and ride the tide. You will feel better and have clarity in the next days and weeks. 

This is such a strong time for manifesting and getting your heart’s desire from a dream into a reality so don’t give up! Read my article on Full Moon Rituals to positively harness the energy that is being given to us. 

Tomorrow’s Blue Moon has a stronger significance because it falls on the 21st which totals to 3 which is all about communication and expressing yourself! The number 3 also signifies growth, abundance and a powerful manifesting vibration! What does this mean? personal growth allows us to grow closer to our life purpose. For example if you are in a 9-5 office job but your life purpose is really to start your own business then a catalyst must be found to trigger this “new life”.  It could be being made redundant, your office moving to a different city or even being fired, which sounds horrible but there needs to be a reason for that next step and if you are too comfortable, nothing will happen. The universe instigates events which can be painful, unfair and difficult but it is part of the bigger plan. 

The number 3 guides us to trust our intuition, stop listening to everyone else, instead let your own soul guide you to the next level. Be optimistic that your future is in the hands of the Angels, God, the universe or deities – whatever your believes may be. 

I always get loads of downloads and messages in my dreams close to and during  full moons  which I write down in my dream book the moment  I wake up.  Its great way to keep track of your dreams, take note of messages and see how it relates to your life. 

Use this beautiful energy to manifest abundance. Read my article on Full Moon Rituals  which is my free gift to you. It is a collection of rituals which I use personally and share with my clients and students. There is a lot more to it which you can learn at my workshops but this is a good starting point.

I leave you with lots of love and may the Blue Moon bring you closer to your Soul’s Mission and bring you plenty of abundance and joy.

The Mini Moon

Tomorrow’s moon is the smallest Full Moon of 2016, It is technically completing its phase at 6.24am tomorrow morning but you will see and feel its full effect tonight. Hopefully the skies will be clear for us to view the moon in Scorpio. The focus is on relationships and facing up to things we would rather keep hidden. It is all about standing up for yourself which will be a great teacher because you will be learning about yourself in the process. Your relationship with people around you, be it a love interest or friends and family will be test – for a positive change. Lots of options will pop up. Do you say something now or is it worth it? Keep going or time for change? Don’t rush into things because you think you have to, take a few deep breaths in difficult situations and try to keep calm. This is not a time to be impulsive.

Tonight is a great time to write your wishlist, smudge the house and leave your crystals out to energise in the moonlight.
