Weekly Forecast, July 15th - 21st 2019Hello Everyone,
This week, the big highlight is the Full Moon combined with the energy of a partial lunar eclipse. Depending upon where you live, this event occurs on either Tuesday or Wednesday, but I have provided links in the Forecast below so that you can confirm the time for your location. We can also look forward to a day of Master Energy on Sunday, as well as opportunities for creativity, harmonising relationships, increasing finances, and releasing that which is no longer in harmony with your higher purpose. So now let's take a detailed look at the week ahead:
Monday July 15th the week starts with a day of gentle, flowing energy. We have some powerful energy coming up in the next couple of days, so if you can it's better to wait until then to take action.
Tuesday July 16th is a very high-energy day. Depending upon where you live, today you may be experiencing the Full Moon in Capricorn combined with a partial lunar eclipse. Despite it being a partial eclipse, the energetic influence remains the same as if it was a full eclipse. Technically, the eclipse and Full Moon happen tomorrow in Hong Kong, but as they occur in the early hours of Wednesday morning, the energy will be felt for much of the day on Tuesday. It will be visible here in Hong Kong, and you can check the following link to find out exactly when: www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/hong-kong/hong-kong For elsewhere in the world, please click on this link and enter your location: www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2019-july-16
So due to the time of the peak of the Full Moon and lunar eclipse, we can say that in Hong Kong, the energy will overlap today and tomorrow. For this reason, I will give all of the Full Moon info for today.
Any Full Moon is a good time to “take stock” of how you've been doing since the previous Full Moon, but the influence of Capricorn places extra emphasis on releasing or making adjustments in the areas of planning followed by action, time-management, maturity and responsibilities. The energy of the lunar eclipse also supports releasing and making changes, so this theme is “super-charged”. It supports us in making adjustments or releasing habits, opinions and thought-patterns that are no longer in alignment with our “higher purpose”. Reflect upon any areas of life where you are feeling “blocked”, or where things aren't moving along smoothly... what changes do you need to make, or what do you need to release in order to get things flowing? However, areas that are already in harmony with your “higher purpose” will get a big boost of empowering energy!
This energy can also cause old emotional wounds and unresolved issues to get triggered and pushed to the surface. If you're experiencing this, don't avoid it or blame others. Instead, take time to think about the root cause of the issue(s). These things come to the surface so that we can heal and release them, so try to see this as an opportunity for deep healing. Ask yourself what lessons you have learned from these past hurts, and perhaps what still needs to be learned. Reflect upon the themes of compassion and forgiveness (both for yourself and for others). In the case of dealing with “toxic” people, remember that it is possible to forgive and have compassion for someone, whilst maintaining strong boundaries. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, set aside time for a full self-treatment (45 minutes – 1 hour), as much can be healed and released today.
If you do need to make some changes or adjustments, don't rush into anything or make sudden decisions. The best approach here is to plan carefully and create a strategy that you can stick to in order to accomplish your goals. In terms of communication, take time to put your thoughts in order so that you can express yourself clearly and compassionately.
In addition to the areas mentioned above, the energy today also highlights creativity, relationships and finances. What adjustments are needed in these areas in order to bring about a more empowered and positive state? You may find that it is also time for you to pay more attention to family relationships, and what changes can be made to bring about a state of greater harmony.
To make the most of today's Full Moon energy, try doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a Full Moon meditation in the following way:
Sit quietly and comfortably, with the hands resting on the knees (palms facing up), breathing deeply and evenly, whilst contemplating the Moon. Imagine that with every in-breath, your up-turned hands draw in a bright, silvery light from the Moon. See the light enter your hands, travel up to your shoulders, and then to the centre of the chest (where it collects in the heart chakra). This light at the centre of the chest then spreads throughout your body. Continue breathing in the light, spreading it through your body, for as long as it feels right for you. (When you exhale, just allow the breath to leave the body). When you feel/visualise that your entire body is filled with this silvery light, you can then try expanding this light throughout your aura, and beyond.
If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you can sit quietly with the Moon in view (ideally outdoors) and send Reiki to it. Sit quietly and comfortably, prepare your hands for sending Reiki, and draw your 3 Reiki symbols over the Moon. You would then use the Reiki 2 technique of 'Beaming', with the hands 'aimed' at the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies. Of course, you can use any method of sending Reiki by distance, so go with whatever you prefer.
You can also do a special “ritual” for releasing that which is no longer wanted or needed by burning paper upon which you have written your fears, patterns, habits etc. Write down everything as clearly as possible; really express your inner-self. Then, sitting quietly and comfortably, breathe deeply and evenly. Begin reading from your list, preferably aloud: say "I completely and joyfully release....." and then read your answers. For example, "I completely and joyfully release the fear I feel when things aren't going my way". Or, "I completely and joyfully release the anger I express whenever I feel my ego being challenged" etc. Or, “I completely and joyfully release all of the pain and hurt from …..”. etc.
When you are done, it is time to burn the paper. Have a fire-safe dish (a steel cooking pot etc.) ready. Set the paper alight, and place it in the fire-safe container... as it burns, strongly intend or feel that all of your fears, issues etc., are also being burned and purified. Feel the sense of release, and of the sense of re-birth... NOW is the time for a new start!
If you prefer, you can use pictures or create an object that represents your fears, issues etc., and then burn it instead of the paper.
If you would like to focus on energetically healing old, emotional hurts, you can try the following exercise which I have modified from an Advanced Reiki technique:
1. Sit quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly as you prepare to contemplate each old or unresolved issue. You may want to work on one issue per “session” or multiple ones.
2. As you contemplate the issue, pay attention to any part(s) of the body that comes to mind.
3. Bring your attention to this area and imagine it filled with a dark fog (you may see a colour clearly, so work with that. Otherwise, imagine a dark grey fog). This “fog” is representative of the negative or stagnant energy resulting from the unresolved issue.
4. Now breathe in deeply and imagine a brilliant white mist entering your body through the top of your head and travelling to the part of the body that is filled with the grey fog.
5. As you exhale, imagine the grey fog leaving your body (you may choose to imagine breathing this out through the mouth, or intending/visualising that the grey fog is being released directly from the affected area.
6. Continue breathing in the white mist and breathing out the dark fog until you can no longer perceive/feel/imagine it (which indicates a clearing of the area).
7. Spend at least a few minutes filling the entire area with brilliant, white, light mist.
8. Acknowledge the lessons learned from the issue and give thanks.
During this exercise, I recommend placing the hands over the area that you are working on. Everyone has “chi” flowing from the hands, so this assists the healing process. If you are a Reiki (or other energy healing) practitioner, you will find that the energy flowing from the hands greatly assists this exercise.
Wednesday July 17th is a very high-energy day when we will be experiencing a continuation of the Full Moon/lunar eclipse energy that began yesterday. Please refer to yesterday's forecast for information on how to work with the energy today.
Thursday July 18th the intuition will be stronger than usual, and there is lots of energy flowing in the area of creativity. Whatever your preferred method of creative expression, whether it's painting, writing, music, or any other form of creativity, make time for it... you may be very pleasantly surprised by how much it flows today! With your intuition, work on creating a better “dialogue” with your inner-self. You can do this by setting aside time and asking specific questions about how to do this, or about any other issues where you would benefit from more inner-guidance. After asking the questions, allow the time for the answers to come to you. This time can take the form of meditation, a walk in nature, or any other activity that silences the mind and allows the intuition and inner-guidance to come through.
Friday July 19th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it's a good idea to work on current projects and just “go with the flow” as much as possible. You may also choose to work with yesterday's themes of creative expression as well as any activities that strengthen the connection with the higher-self. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can apply extra energy to the areas of the 3rd eye and crown chakras in order to do this.
Saturday July 20th we have a second day of gentle, flowing energy. As with yesterday, take it easy today, and don't overwhelm yourself by taking on too many tasks. The energy will be much more active tomorrow, so perhaps save the action for then! You may also notice the energy increasing as the day goes on and we approach the strong energy on Sunday.
Sunday July 21st the week finishes with a high-energy day. Firstly, we have a day of “Master Energy”. According to numerology, this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (2+1+7+2+0+1+9= 22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). This is a day to take action, so make the most of it! It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.
In addition to the Master Energy, today there is also great support for communication (especially communicating clearly and compassionately in order to harmonise relationships), creativity and increasing financial flow. In the area of wealth, however, you should not take any risks. Rather, you'll find that creating a clear plan and strategies will be much more effective.
Wishing all of you a wonderfully empowered week ahead!

I need to share this because it's so insane: Recently, I was invited to teach Reiki 1 at a yoga conference in China. I informed the organiser that in a conference setting, the maximum number of students in my class should not exceed 30. He replied today to tell me that he wasn't interested anymore, as he would like the class size to be 300 students. Yes, you read that correctly: 300!!! I feel sorry for any students attending a class that large. 😔😔😫 ...

Weekly Forecast, July 8th - 14th 2019Hello Everyone,
This week we have good opportunities for healing, increasing our level of service to others, overcoming obstacles and bringing our lives into greater alignment with our higher purpose. The highlights include a day of Master Energy, two energy cycles starting, and Chiron turning retrograde on Monday. Chiron is referred to as the “wounded healer”, so we can expect a focus on healing for the next few months. So now let's take a detailed look at the week ahead, and how to make the most of the energy coming up:
Monday July 8th the week begins with strong energy as we begin a 4-week energy cycle focused on projects or causes that assist others and are in alignment with your “higher purpose”. This energy is also great for helping to raise awareness amongst others about your project or work so that they may also lend their support. In addition to this, today there is also a focus on committed relationships, especially in working together to heal and release any emotional “hurts” that may have been experienced within the relationship. If you find any of these “hurts” being triggered today, take time with your partner to communicate openly and compassionately with each other about the root cause (usually fear-based), so you can then actively work on creating a more harmonious relationship.
Although I do not practise astrology, I would like to mention that Chiron turns retrograde today until December 12th. Referred to as the “wounded healer”, the period of Chiron retrograde is seen as a time of reflection on the themes of healing and mentoring, and then taking action on insights gained from this. Whether or not you follow astrology, it's worthwhile “taking a step back” and asking yourself the following questions about the giving and receiving of healing and mentoring:
How can I focus more on my own health and healing process (on all levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual)? What steps can I take right now to start this process?
Are there any changes or adjustments I can make in order to better assist others in their own healing process?
In what areas can I benefit from the experience, advice and wisdom of others?
What changes or adjustments can I make in order to better share my own experiences and guidance with others?
The answers to these questions will assist you in actively making use of this time of Chiron retrograde. Bear in mind that the intuition will be stronger than usual today, so allow it to guide you in the areas mentioned in today's Forecast.
Tuesday July 9th is a day for dealing with any obstacles or blockages on your path. These obstacles can happen if your current path is not in alignment with your “higher purpose”, or if you need to make some changes or adjustments on your current path that is in alignment with your “higher purpose”. The difference between the two is how you feel. If your path is in alignment with your “higher purpose”, you will feel a passion for what you are doing, and it enriches you as well as others in many aspects (emotionally, financially, spiritually etc.).
In dealing with these obstacles on your chosen path, the energy today supports a practical approach: better time management, creating plans and strategies to put into action, self-disciple and perseverance.
Wednesday July 10th the intuition will be stronger than usual, there is great potential to get inspirational ideas, and we will experience a strong boost of energy in supporting us over the next two weeks in bringing different aspects of life into alignment with one's “higher purpose”. These aspects are finances, creative expression and significant relationships. Today, take time to reflect upon these areas: are they in alignment with your higher purpose, the path with “heart”? If not, create a clear strategy for bringing these areas into harmony with your higher purpose, and then put that strategy into action! This doesn't need to be done quickly. Rather, working steadily and with purpose is usually the better approach with these things.
Thursday July 11th is a high-energy day with great potential if you choose to consciously work with the energy. There is excellent support for creativity, physical activity, leadership, and taking action with any “flashes” of intuition. However, when not consciously applied, the energy today can lead to conflicts and impulsive behaviour. To be on the safe side, try to avoid arguments and any potentially problematic people or situations.
Friday July 12th is a high-energy day. According to numerology, this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (1+2+7+2+0+1+9= 22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). This is a day to take action, so make the most of it! It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.
Saturday July 13th we can expect a day of gently flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or starting new projects, today's energy is better-suited to taking it easy, relaxing and recharging.
Sunday July 14th the week finishes with positive, empowering energy. You may choose to use this energy for personal transformation, by letting go of old habits and fears so that you can create a moment of “rebirth”. You can also use this energy to increase the flow of prosperity and abundance into your life, both through practical strategy and action as well as through using intention/visualisation techniques such as Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction etc. Another interesting aspect of this energy is that you can also use it for increasing family harmony. In this case, reflect upon what changes or adjustments can be made to increase positive communication and interactions.
Wishing all of you a positive and empowered week ahead!
