December is really starting off with a “bang”! This week is filled with high-energy days, supporting us to take action, change and transform. Remember that during a week that has so much strong energy, it is very important to stay grounded and balanced otherwise you can find yourself feeling frustrated, agitated and “all over the place”. A lack of grounding will also prevent you from making the most of this productive energy, so if grounding is an issue for you, try starting every day with a grounding exercise: applying Reiki to the first chakra, legs and feet or doing a session of tai chi or yoga or starting the day with a grounding meditation such as the guided meditation I have made for Grounding and Energising: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding You can also check out the article I wrote about grounding as there is lots of advice on this subject for everyone: http://www.healingfire.com/?p=411
So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:
Monday December 1st we start the month with a VERY high-energy day! According to numerology, today (1+1+2+2+0+1+4= 11) has a Master 11 energetic vibration: perfect for taking action, working on your goals and building for your future. Make the most of this opportunity by making sure you set aside time to work on manifesting your goals: Sit quietly and visualise your goals in their completed forms. Work on each goal one by one and try to use as many of your senses as possible (see, feel, etc.). If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, today is fantastic for working on your Reiki affirmations. The emphasis today is on taking action and asserting yourself in terms of your ideas, plans. Aim high, maintain your focus and self-discipline and you can really make this an incredibly positive and productive day. What a fantastic way to start December!
Tuesday December 2nd we will still be feeling some of the effects of yesterday’s strong and positive energy. The energy today will be light, bright and flowing. You can make the most of today’s energy by continuing to focus on the areas and goals that you worked on yesterday (although don’t push things too hard).
Wednesday December 3rd is a high-energy day with the focus on transformation, communication and accomplishing tasks. The intuition is also strong today, so pay attention to signs and listen to your “gut instinct”, especially if you are faced with making any big decisions (especially those concerning taking a new direction). You can accomplish much today, particularly in the area of service to others. In terms of communication, take time to reflect on committed relationships and how you and your partner communicate with each other: do you express yourselves openly and compassionately with each other? Are there areas that need work? Today is a very good day to work on any issues related to these and other issues.
Thursday December 4th is a high-energy day with the energy being flowing and magical! The intuition will be especially strong, connection to your higher-self supported, and the expansive energy supports creativity, passion and accomplishing tasks (especially when guided by the intuition). It’s also a great day to express your inner-self… allow yourself to shine, letting go of fear of being judged. It’s a good idea to start the day with a spiritual practise such as meditation, Reiki self-treatment etc. in order to more fully connect to your higher-self and the Divine and to open the way to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration.
Friday December 5th the energy will be very supportive for healing, especially issues that may be triggered or pushed to the surface today. If you are a Reiki (or other type of healing) practitioner, make sure to set aside time for a full self-treatment today as you can accomplish some very deep healing today. Or, you can book a session to receive a healing treatment from a practitioner. The intuition is also very strong today, so pay attention to signs, listen to your “gut instinct” and take time for meditation so that you are better able to receive guidance and inspiration.
Saturday December 6th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Gemini. This places the emphasis on communication, learning and self-expression. Take time today to reflect upon these areas and any difficulties/issues that you may have and how you can make some positive changes. Healing is also strongly supported today (especially in the areas mentioned previously), and also bear in mind that very often we can create very positive shifts in the area of communication and self-expression when we learn to approach life with more lightness and to not take ourselves too seriously! To more fully tap into the energy of today, I recommend doing a Full Moon meditation. You can practise any type that you like, or you can try this one:
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 (this is both fun and wonderful).
You may also choose to join together with friends to experience the special energy! You can do a group meditation, or even just enjoy an evening meal ‘al fresco’ (if weather permits). Appreciate the Moon, and feel a sense of gratitude for the beauty of nature, and the love from those around us.
This Full Moon also brings with it a sense of cleansing, of breaking free from patterns and letting go of the past, especially in regards to relationships. With current relationships, you can take time to reflect upon how you communicate (as well as how you listen!) and what patterns you need to let go of in order to have a health and balanced relationship. With old relationships, you can set aside time for a “cleansing” ritual: You can write down everything that you want to release (thoughts, habits, emotions etc.). When you are finished, burn the paper, intending that everything is now released. Follow this with a bath using Epsom salts, Himalayan sea salt (or any other cleansing salt) as this will have the effect of cleansing your aura.
Sunday December 7th is a high-energy day with the focus on transformation, communication and accomplishing tasks. The intuition is strong today, so pay attention to signs and listen to your “gut instinct”. The theme of communication also continues today, so take time to reflect on committed relationships and how you and your partner communicate with each other (this is a continuation of the themes we dealt with on Wednesday the 3rd): do you express yourselves openly and compassionately with each other? Are there areas that need work? Today is a very good day to work on any issues related to these and other issues.
Wow, we have quite a week to look forward to! Wishing all of you a wonderfully productive, positive and healing week ahead.
