High Energy Days, December 1st – 7th 2014

Hello Everyone,

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:

Full Moon in Gemini

 

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.

Many Blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, November 24th – 30th 2014

Hello Everyone,

Although this week we don’t have any outstanding high-energy days (as we did last week), the energy this week will be rather intense.  There is an emphasis on clear self-expression, decision-making and healing/releasing what no longer serves you so that you can experience a sort of “re-birth”.  With the exception of Saturday, it is not a week to just go with the flow… if you don’t use and balance this energy, you may find yourself feeling aimless and “stuck”.  So embrace this energy, take action and get the energy moving.  Let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

 

Monday November 24th we start the week with strong energy, with new projects and productivity supported.  However, be aware that this energy will be wasted if you get locked into a power-struggle situation whereby everyone wants to get their own way.  Instead, use the energy today to assist you in creating a strategy that benefits everyone involved.

 

Tuesday November 25th the energy will be focused in the area of asserting your personal power and strength.  This can be done through making some big decisions, focusing your energy and attention on more urgent issues and by expressing yourself clearly and directly.  Reflect upon whether or not you have been expressing your true thoughts (or have you been holding back or expressing the views of others?).  Although it is fine to consider the opinions and ideas of others, now is the time to take responsibility and make decisions yourself!  Just remember to be patient and understanding with others… not everyone can keep up with this kind of energy.

 

Wednesday November 26th is a high-energy day when the intuition will be strong and the energy empowering in the areas of creativity, relationships and money matters.  Pay attention to your gut instinct and set aside time for meditation (ideally, in the morning,) even just 5-10 minutes, so that you are better able to receive guidance and inspiration.  It’s also a great idea to start the day with a Reiki self-treatment or any other energy practise that balances and grounds you:  it’s very important to stay grounded and balanced today, otherwise the strong energy can cause one to feel “all over the place”.  Focus on expressing today’s energy with positive and compassionate action and you’ll find that you’ll get the most out of it.

 

Thursday November 27th the intuition will be especially strong (so pay attention to it!) and the energy will be very supportive in the area of healing, particularly in healing and releasing old emotional wounds.  If you find yourself feeling hurt or upset in a relationship, take time to reflect upon what old hurt is being triggered… acknowledge it, learn the lesson, communicate with your partner and work on healing and releasing.   A Reiki (or other healing energy) treatment is very effective in aiding this process.  Today is also significant in that the energy is powerfully supporting the process of letting go of patterns, habits, thoughts etc. that no longer serve your highest good.  It can be seen as the “death of the old and the birth of the new”, so set aside time to think about what behaviours no longer “fit” with who you are and who you are becoming and what you can do let go of these.

 

Friday November 28th is a high-energy day with the energy flowing strongly in pushing old issues (especially those related to self-worth) to the surface so that they can be healed and released.  If you have any of these issues to work on, take time to reflect upon whether or not you are being true to yourself (especially with regards to relationships) as well as how freely and comfortably you express yourself.  It’s time to heal and release the fears that are at the root of these issues in order to live in a state of personal freedom and fulfilment.  It’s also a day to express your true self and to reflect upon whether or not you are allowing others to limit your self-expression.  If you find that this is the case, take time to meditate on letting go of this fear of how you may be judged.

 

Saturday November 29th the energy will be rather gentle and flowing.  Rather than pushing ahead with projects, it’s a good idea to just go with the flow and take it easy.

 

Sunday November 30th we finish the month with a day that can be potentially difficult if you aren’t grounded.  It can be a day of confusion and difficulty with focusing… so if possible, avoid making important decisions.  You can benefit by starting the day with a grounding practise such as applying Reiki to the first chakra, feet and legs.  Or you can try a session of yoga or tai chi, or a grounding meditation.  Use any grounding meditation that works well for you or you can try my guided meditation for Grounding and Energising:

https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding

On a positive note, committed partnerships can be healed, energised and empowered today, so take time to appreciate your partner and make sure to share in some enjoyable activities today!

 

Wishing all of you a week filled with inspiration, new ideas, healing and release!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, November 17th – 23rd 2014

Hello Everyone,

We have some good high-energy days coming up this week, with an especially powerful day on Saturday with the New Moon in Sagittarius.  This active energy supports us in taking action and creating positive change in all areas of life.  However, there will be an emphasis this week on self-expression and communication, with lots of opportunities for healing and releasing issues relating to self-worth and relationships.  So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

sagittarius new moon

Monday November 17th we start the week with some powerful Yin (feminine) energy.  This makes today ideal for planning, strategic thinking and problem-solving.  The intuition will be stronger than usual, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and make time for meditation (even just 5-10 minutes!).  In quieting the mind through meditation, we are able to better receive inspiration, guidance and insights.  The flowing energy of today is also very supportive of healing, so it would be ideal to start the day with a Reiki self-treatment or to receive a healing treatment of any type today as much can be released today.

 

Tuesday November 18th the Yin energy of yesterday continues, especially in terms of healing and releasing old issues that are holding you back and slowing down your process of transformation.  If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or blocked by your current circumstances, see this as an opportunity to rise to the challenge, to transform yourself and the situation:  take time to reflect upon how you can manage your time better, exercise more self-discipline and maintain focus on your goals and path… create change!

 

Wednesday November 19th the energy will be gentle and flowing.  Rather than taking action, today it’s a better idea to go with the flow and not push too much in terms of projects and goals.

 

Thursday November 20th is a very high-energy day!  According to numerology, today (2+0+1+1+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.  Many will still be feeling the challenging energy of Tuesday, so if this is the case for you it’s more important than usual to be grounded, practical and focused on goals.  The intuition is also very strong today, so pay attention to it (especially in relation to financial situations).

 

Friday November 21st the energy will be flowing strongly in the areas of leadership, self-motivation and service to others.  Stay grounded and focused in order to make the most of the energy today and try to set aside time for a Reiki self-treatment (or receive a treatment from a practitioner) as there are also great opportunities for transformation through healing.

 

Saturday November 22nd is a VERY high-energy day, the most powerful of the entire week as we experience a New Moon in Sagittarius.  The energy of the New Moon (new beginnings, fresh starts) combined with the fiery energy of Sagittarius (action, vitality, enthusiasm, learning and wisdom) makes for a potent combination in overcoming obstacles, transforming through learning, and experiencing new levels in relationships, creativity and self-expression.  The energy will be strong and bright, so make sure that you take action today in the areas mentioned previously.

To more fully tap into the energy of today, you can practise a New Moon meditation.  You may choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life and what you would like to welcome in, or you can do a New 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 with the Moon in view (if possible) 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.

The energy of today is very supportive in doing manifesting work, so take 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 great for working on your Reiki affirmations.

The energy of today is also flowing strongly in pushing old issues (especially related to self-worth) to the surface so that they can be healed and released.  If you have any of these issues to work on, take time to reflect upon whether or not you are being true to yourself (especially with regards to relationships) as well as how freely and comfortably you express yourself.  It’s time to heal and release the fears that are at the root of these issues in order to live in a state of personal freedom and fulfilment.

 

Sunday November 23rd we finish the week with light, flowing energy that is especially supportive of healing and providing assistance/guidance to others.

 

I wish all of you a week filled with positive action and change.

Many blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, November 10th – 16th 2014

Hello Everyone,

We have quite a week to look forward to, with some incredibly powerful high-energy days (particularly on the 11th).  So much potential for change, growth and transformation… but you’ll need to take action in order to reap the benefits.  With this in mind, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and what we can do to make the most of the energy.

 

Monday November 10th we start the week with a high-energy day, but be aware that this strong energy is potentially volatile.  This means that the energy can either expressed in a negative sense (outbursts of anger, lack of self-control and aggression) or a positive one.  By being aware, we are able to focus on expressing the positive energy of today which includes being very productive, taking positive action and living life with a passion.

 

Tuesday November 11th is a SUPER high-energy day, a very special one this month (even an outstanding one for the year)!  The Master energy vibration today is extremely powerful due to the following:  According to numerology, today (1+1+1+1+2+0+1+4= 11) has a Master 11 energetic vibration: perfect for taking action, working on your goals and building for your future. This is combined with today being a “double 11” day (the eleventh day of the eleventh month).  Think of it as being a day of “super manifesting”!  Don’t waste this excellent opportunity, make sure you set aside time to work on manifesting for your future: 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.  Inspiration and insight is also well-aspected and the intuition will also be especially strong today, so listen to your inner-voice, pay attention to any signs and make time for meditation.  There are also great opportunities for personal transformation, specifically in releasing what no longer serves your highest good:  habits, patterns, relationships, possessions etc.

 

Wednesday November 12th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s very powerful energy.  However, be aware that the strong energy of today will be very much like the energy on Monday, so stay productive and positive rather than expressing the energy negatively (anger, aggression etc.).  There is also an emphasis on relationships today, with opportunities to see any weaknesses or imbalances in existing relationships, thereby allowing the chance to heal and restore balance.

 

Thursday November 13th the energy will be light and bright, but after the past three days of intense energy it is important that you check your grounding today otherwise you may find yourself overdoing things or taking unnecessary risks.  Ideally, start the day with an energy practise such as Reiki, yoga, tai chi etc. and/or a grounding meditation.  Do any grounding meditation that works well for you, or you can try my guided meditation for Grounding and Energising here:  https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding

 

Friday November 14th the energy will be very Yin (feminine), so the emphasis is on healing, careful planning for your future and creativity.  Keep in mind that the potential breakthroughs and advances in your healing process may not be pleasant, but stick with it!  Rather than suppressing any emotions or holding back, allow these old hurts to come to the surface so that they can be healed and released.  To make the most of this, make sure to set aside time for a full Reiki self-treatment today or receive a treatment from a practitioner.  You can also set aside time today to reflect upon your life-path and what steps you can take in order to further and strengthen it.

 

Saturday November 15th the energy will be rather low-key, so rather than pushing ahead with projects and trying to accomplish lots of tasks, it’s better to just go with the flow.

 

Sunday November 16th we finish the week with a high-energy day, as Neptune turns direct after being retrograde since June 9th.  This brings a time of stronger intuition and psychic awareness as well as great potential for spiritual breakthroughs.  It’s a time to take your knowledge and apply it in order to further your life-path… and listen to your intuition!  Today is also a great day to reconnect with nature, so try to spend time outdoors doing activities that you love.

 

It’s a very exciting week coming up, but as is always the case when there is lots of strong energy, make sure that you keep yourself grounded and focused so that you can make the most of it.  I have posted this before, but here is the link to an article on my blog and grounding and techniques that everyone can use:  http://www.healingfire.com/?p=411

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead filled with positive and powerful energy!

Many blessings,

Chantal

 

High Energy Days, November 3rd – 9th 2014

Hello Everyone,
I hope that you enjoyed last week’s moments of gentle, flowing energy and made the most of it by taking more time for meditation, Reiki, yoga, tai chi (or whatever energy practise you may have). It’s more important than usual to stay balanced and grounded throughout the month of November as the overall energy for the month is all about transformation, healing (especially within relationships). We have some great high-energy days this week, but remember to stay grounded or else you can end up feeling agitated, anxious or frustrated. In fact, there may be some challenging moments this month, which is even more reason to stay grounded! You can take a look at my blog post, “Tips for Grounding” which has good advice and practises that everyone can do: http://www.healingfire.com/?p=411
So, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Monday November 3rd we start the week with a high-energy day with an emphasis on transformation, healing (especially relationships) and spiritual practises. Be sure to make time for a full Reiki self-treatment (or receive a treatment from a practitioner) as much can be accomplished today in terms of healing… possible breakthroughs leading to transformation! When healing relationship issues, pay attention to what triggers any issues and don’t be afraid to delve deeper to discover the root so that it can be healed and released. Very often, these triggers are rooted in fear (fear of rejection, of facing ourselves and our issues etc.) so can be difficult to face…. Meditation and Reiki are great tools in assisting the process of dealing with these fears. In addition to spiritual practises, today is also a good day to research more of this area.

Tuesday November 4th the energy will be rather “low-key”, so don’t push yourself too hard today and don’t force any issues. Rather, it’s a good day to just go with the flow and save the action for tomorrow when the energy will be stronger.

Wednesday November 5th is a high-energy day when the intuition will be strong and the energy focused in the mental area of life (ideas, inspiration, creativity etc.). Healing is also strongly supported today, especially mental issues, so take time for a full healing session. Relationships may be strained today as issues continue to be pushed to the surface: this is a further opportunity to heal and resolve issues so that relationships can be strengthened and transformed… but if these issues are left unresolved it will lead to much bigger problems. Make a decision to face your fears, resolve issues and feel the personal freedom and joy that comes with this! Be aware that the strong energy of today can cause some to feel agitated or anxious: if this is the case for you, take time to ground your energy and reflect upon how you can use this energy constructively.

Thursday November 6th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Taurus. This places an emphasis on the physical world: being grounded and present, enjoyment of the physical, finances and overcoming obstacles. Take time to reflect upon any obstacles you may be facing right now and what steps you can take to overcome them. The intuition is very strong today, so pay attention to it and set aside time for meditation so that you can better receive guidance and inspiration. If you have been working on healing relationship issues, much can be achieved today in this area in terms of healing and transformation.
The abundant energy of today can also be used to help manifest goals, so it’s a great day to work on this. Sitting quietly, visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. Work on each goal one by one, using as many of your senses and emotions as possible… intend, see and feel that each one is now achieved! If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure to work on your Reiki affirmations.

In order to make the most of the energy of today you can do your own meditation, 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 ways:

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).

Join together with friends to experience the special energy! You can do a group meditation, or even just enjoy an evening meal ‘al fresco’. Appreciate the Moon, and feel a sense of gratitude for the beauty of nature, and the love from those around us.

Friday November 7th the energy will be much more settled and “quieter” than yesterday. It’s a good idea to just go with the flow today rather than taking action and pushing ahead with projects.

Saturday November 8th the energy will be flowing strongly in terms of manifesting goals, abundance and prosperity. It’s very important to make use of this energy today otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or frustrated. Make sure to set aside time to visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. Work on each goal one by one, using as many of your senses and emotions as possible… intend, see and feel that each one is now achieved! If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an excellent day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

Sunday November 9th there will be lots of energy flowing in the areas of relationships, money and creative/self-expression. Specifically, today we have the opportunity to gain insights into these areas and how we can create change and improvement. Set aside time to reflect upon these three areas of life… keep a notebook handy so that you can write down any thoughts, flashes of intuition and guidance related to this.

Wishing all of you a wonderful week filled with healing, release and transformation… and abundance!
Many blessings,
Chantal
