High Energy Days, Dec. 29th 2014 – Jan. 4th 2015

Hello Everyone,

I hope that all of you enjoyed your time over the holidays and are ready to see in the New Year on Wednesday night.  This week starts off rather quietly but things will really pick up on New Year’s Day, with lots of powerful and positive energy coming through to help us get 2015 off to a great start!  I am working on my Energy Forecast for 2015 and I hope to be able to share it with all of you soon.  Until then, let’s take a look at what we can expect this week:

2015

Monday December 29th we start the week with rather “quiet” energy, making this a good day to just go with the flow and not push yourself (or others).  If possible, avoid starting new projects until later on in the week.  Take time to appreciate this low-key start to the week.  Why not make the most of today’s quiet by setting aside time to reflect upon what you would like to achieve in 2015 and what steps you can start taking immediately in order to start reaching those goals.

 

Tuesday December 30th the energy will be more active than yesterday, mostly in the form of creativity and creative expression.  In order to be more open to receiving inspiration, set aside at least 10-15 minutes for meditation:  when the mind is quiet we are better able to receive guidance and inspiration!  Practise a meditation technique that works well for you, whether it’s sitting quietly and focusing on the breath or doing a walking meditation.  Also, be prepared to let go of your usual thought-patterns and try something different!

 

Wednesday December 31st the energy will be very similar to Monday’s.   Again, it’s a good day to go with the flow and not overload yourself with tasks.  The energy will be very strong tomorrow, so you may notice that the energy today will slowly but steadily increase as the day goes on.

 

Thursday January 1st is a VERY high-energy day that starts off the New Year with a push of strong and positive energy that will be felt for the rest of the week!  The energy today is all about taking action as well as enjoying life to the fullest.  What a fantastic mood for starting the year!  On an energetic note, it’s a great idea to set aside to work on manifesting your goals:  sitting quietly, imagine each of your goals in their completed forms.  Use as many senses and emotions as possible and truly intend that each goal is now completed.  If you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure to work on your Reiki affirmations!

 

Friday January 2nd is a VERY high-energy day, the first “11 Master” vibration day of the year!  This is considered to be a Master Vibration day, as according to numerology today’s date vibrates to the Master Number of “11” (2+1++2+0+1+5=11).  This is an excellent day to start new projects and for all types of new beginnings and fresh starts.  It’s also a great day to work on any type of ‘manifesting’, so you can continue to work on visualising your goals or working on your Reiki affirmations as you did yesterday.  It’s also another great day for taking action, but don’t overdo it by trying to accomplish too many things at one time.

 

Saturday January 3rd is another high-energy day, but remember that all of this strong energy can push things to the surface or cause one to feel agitated if the energy isn’t being used in a positive way or if issues are being ignored.  If you are feeling agitated or frustrated, take a step back and reflect upon whether or not you’re expressing your true self and living according to your truth (in your work, relationships etc.).  Only you are responsible for your state of being, so take action and create that change within yourself and in your life.  Be aware of any issues that you may have been avoiding that are now coming to the surface and start dealing with them… free yourself and make this a wonderful year!

 

Sunday January 4th we will still be feeling the current of energy that kicked-off on Thursday, although today the energy will be lighter and brighter than yesterday.  In fact, the energy will continue to increase throughout the day as we approach the Full Moon tomorrow.  With all of this strong energy, it’s an excellent idea to start the day with an energetic practise for balancing and grounding:  a full Reiki treatment, yoga or tai chi session etc., or a grounding meditation.  This will enable you to stay balanced and focused so that you can continue to get the most out of the strong energy that we are experiencing.

 

Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead and a New Year filled with love, abundance, joy, good health and prosperity.

Many blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, December 22nd – 28th 2014

Hello Everyone,

Following on from Sunday’s Winter Solstice, there is some powerful energy of change and transformation at the start of this week.  Although there is some great energetic potential this week, be aware that there may be some major communication issues arising mid-week.  As always, it is very important to stay grounded and focused during these days of intense energy so that you can maintain a positive attitude with positive action, otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated and easily drawn into arguments and draining exchanges with others.  You can start each day with a Reiki treatment (focusing lots of energy in the lower chakras and legs for grounding), or a yoga or tai chi session for grounding.  You can also try listening to my free guided meditation for Grounding and Energising:  https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding

Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week, starting with the powerful New Moon energy of Monday!

New Moon Capricorn2

Monday December 22nd we start the week with a VERY high-energy day.  We’re still experiencing the powerful energy of yesterday’s Winter Solstice and today we experience the amazing energy of the New Moon in Capricorn.  The Solstice theme of release and renewal ties in with the New Moon energy of rebirth and renewal.  The energy of today is all about new beginnings, and the influence of Capricorn (an Earth sign) places special emphasis on making plans, taking responsibility, being productive and staying grounded.  You can also achieve much in terms of spiritual practises, creativity and communication.  Take time today to reflect upon what you would like to achieve in the New Year and what clear steps you can take to make your goals a reality.  It is also a great day to work on visualising your goals in their completed forms (if you’re a Reiki 2 practitioner, make sure to work on your Reiki affirmations!).

In order to make the most of today’s energy, you can also do a special New Moon meditation.  You can do any that you enjoy, or you can try the following 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.

 

Tuesday December 23rd is a high-energy day when we get a strong push of energy in the areas of spirituality and higher learning, specifically in taking responsibility for our own progress and paths, learning lessons and being more self-disciplined.  Now is the time to work on building/strengthening a solid foundation and working on maintaining a positive attitude.  Remember, it’s easy to be positive when everything is going the way we want… a big lesson right now is to maintain a positive attitude even during trying times.  A great way to do this is to practise GRATITUDE (this helps to keep one positive, as well as maintaining a flow of positive energy:  this is essential for growth).  If you don’t do this already, every morning take time to express what you are grateful for.  For example, “I am so grateful and thankful for my state of excellent health.  I am so grateful and thankful for the wonderful friends in my life.  I am so grateful and thankful to be on my path of growth…. Etc.”.  If you do this daily, you’ll find it easier and easier to maintain a sense of gratitude and a positive attitude.

 

Wednesday December 24th we have another high-energy day, but be aware that this energy can be very challenging.  On the positive side, there are opportunities to radically change your old attitudes and patterns regarding how you perceive the world.  On the other hand, you may find lots of challenges in terms of communication with others.  Be aware of this so that you can avoid arguments and confrontation.  Remember that not everyone wants to change or let go of old attitudes and patterns, so to engage in debate with certain people will only lead to aggravation and frustration.  Rather than pushing your attitudes onto others or engaging in pointless debates, focus instead on yourself and creating positive change within.

 

Thursday December 25th we will experience energy similar to yesterday.  As many of you will be spending today with family (which can be tense for many people anyway!), be EXTRA aware of communication difficulties.   Stay grounded, focus on sharing love and kindness and do not allow yourself to be drawn into arguments or debates.  On the plus side, there are opportunities for positive and healing communication, but this can only occur if both parties wish to open up and communicate with love, understanding and compassion.

 

Friday December 26th the energy will be light, bright and very positive!  It’s a great day to take time to reflect upon what actions you can take to assist others and raise the energetic vibration of yourself and those around you.  It’s also an excellent day to manifest abundance and prosperity in your life, so make sure to set aside time to work on this:  sitting quietly and comfortably, visualise each of your goals in their completed forms.  Use as many as your senses and emotions as possible, truly feel and intend that each goal is accomplished!  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, today is ideal for working on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Saturday December 27th the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of personal transformation and growth.  Try to start the day with a full Reiki treatment, yoga or tai chi session, or any other spiritual/energy practise.  Romantic relationships also get a nice boost today, so take time to enjoy moments with that special person in your life.

 

Sunday December 28th we finish the week with a strong flow of energy in the areas of assertive female energy.  Take time to reflect upon the areas of relationships and prosperity and ask yourself what practical steps you can take to improve these areas of your life.  Today is the day to make solid plans in order to make positive changes in these areas that lead to growth and solid progress.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead, and best wishes to you and your loved ones during this holiday time.  May it be a time of love and joy for all!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, December 15th – 21st 2014 (Winter Solstice!)

Hello Everyone,

The most energetically significant day of the season is coming up at the end of this week:  the Winter Solstice on Sunday the 21st.  This is a time to go within, to reflect upon the year and to make plans for the coming one.  The energy this week will be very supportive in terms of transformation and release, but you need to take action in order to make the most of it.  Let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect and what we can do to maximise the benefits of the energy.

winter solstice

 

Monday December 15th we start the week with a very high-energy day with the emphasis on dramatic transformation, breakthroughs and new opportunities and possibilities.  This energetic influence will be felt over the next few weeks and offers so much potential for positive change and growth.  Very exciting!  To make the most of this energy, it’s very important to take time to reflect upon what you need to let go of in order to grow and transform:  situations, patterns, people, methods of doing things, relationships etc.  Whatever no longer serves you and your higher purpose needs to be released!  This will open the way for new, fresh, empowering energy to come flooding in… but you need to LET GO first.  The intuition is also very strong during this time, so make sure to listen to your “gut instinct” or inner-voice.  Whatever you are clinging to will just drag you down.  Those who refuse to release and change will encounter unnecessary difficulties and frustration:  so reflect upon any areas of your life where you are experiencing frustration, blockages etc. and recognise what you need to change/release.

 

Tuesday December 16th is a high-energy day when the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of mental capabilities.  This makes it a great day for problem-solving, logical thought, focus and concentration.  You can make the most of this energy by setting aside time to reflect logically on any issues or blockages that you are currently dealing with.  Make sure to write down any ideas or breakthroughs!

 

Wednesday December 17th the energy will be rather low-key, making it a good day to just “go with the flow”.  Don’t push too hard with existing projects and goals and avoid starting new projects (if possible).

 

Thursday December 18th we have another “quiet” day, energetically speaking.  Again, it’s better to just “go with the flow” today.  You can also take advantage of this rather low-key day by taking extra time to reflect upon the past year, what you have accomplished in 2014 and what you would like to accomplish in the New Year.  Remember that I’ve been writing about the importance of letting go of what no longer serves you in order to create transformation… take time to reflect upon this further.

 

Friday December 19th the energy starts to increase and shift following the last two days of “quiet” energy.  It is likely that you’ve been inspired this week to approach situations in more unconventional ways… today you can receive the inspiration to take action and put these ideas into practise.  If you would like to receive more inspiration, it’s a good idea to take time for meditation.  Sitting quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly, maintain your attention on your breath.  If your mind wanders, simply return your focus to your breathing.  By meditating, you create the “space” in which to receive guidance and inspiration.

 

Saturday December 20th is a high-energy day when we will be experiencing the energy of opportunities, manifestation and transformation.  Rather than sitting back and letting the energy happen, it is very important to take action in order to reap the rewards of a day like today.  The opportunities of today will be focused in the areas of abundance and prosperity, so get out there and take action where it is needed!  You can also tap into this energy by taking time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms, engaging your emotions and using as many of your senses as possible. Intend that each goal is now complete.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s the ideal time to work on your Reiki affirmations.  Manifesting exercises are strongly supported today, so make the most of it!

Regarding transformation, continue the exercise of letting go of patterns, situations, people, relationships etc. that no longer serve your highest good.  The intuition will be especially strong today, so don’t be surprised if you receive flashes of inspiration and guidance… these can assist you in the process of change and transformation.  The energy will continue to build as the day progresses and we approach tomorrow’s Winter Solstice.

 

Sunday December 21st is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Winter Solstice and the event of Uranus turning direct after being retrograde since July 21st.  As Uranus turns direct, there is a large push of energy supporting intuition, appreciating and expressing the unique aspects of your character and taking action in assisting others in your own special way.  The healing of relationship issues is also strongly supported today.

Regarding the Winter Solstice, this marks the day with the fewest hours of daylight in the year (for those in the Northern hemisphere).  Winter Solstice has been celebrated in cultures the world over for thousands of years as a celebration of Light and the rebirth of the Sun.  Winter Solstice marks a time of going within, in order to renew ourselves in preparation for the birth to come.   Although the energy is strong today, it is more of a “yin” or feminine, energy.  This is a day that is best suited to deep meditation, contemplation and ‘quiet’. The energy today is also very helpful for meditation and insight.  Use this day to contemplate the past year, and ask yourself the following questions:

When were the times when I was most out-of-balance?

What patterns have I been pushed to change?

Which personal judgements do I make that limit my personal and spiritual growth?

What are my greatest fears, and how have they been challenged this year?

 

With these answers, you can do the following:

CREATE A MOMENT OF RE-BIRTH!  You can use the answers to the above questions to help you create clear and solid goals.  Remember that the energy of the Winter Solstice = huge potential for change and growth!

You can also do a ‘ritual’ to release the negative energy, fears, etc. by burning the paper upon which you have written your answers to the above questions.  Write down everything as clearly as possible, really expressing 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.

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 away.  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 create an object that represents your fears, issues etc., and then burn it instead of the paper.

As well as reflecting upon what you need to change and release, also take time to reflect upon what you have accomplished during 2014.  Acknowledge your successes (whether big or small)!  You can also create a list of what you would like to continue to build upon, goals you would like to achieve etc.  It’s a great time to make plans!

I also highly recommend meditating today, ideally outdoors (if weather permits).  You can do your own or you can try the following ones:

Meditation 1

Sit quietly and close your eyes. If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, place the hands on the body, resting lightly on the knees, or placed over the heart chakra. Breathe deeply and evenly, focusing attention on the breath and quieting the mind.

When you feel calm and centred, begin to imagine your breath as a radiant white light. Imagine/intend that this light is coming directly from the Divine source, filling you and energising every cell of your body with every breath. Be aware of being filled with vitality, strength, joy and love. With every breath, this feeling intensifies…

Feel your heart chakra glowing and growing…expanding infinitely…filled with love.

Feel how we are all ONE, how your love connects you with every living thing. Feel your energy expanding so that you are filled with love for all…feel your connection with the Earth. Continue breathing deeply and evenly.

Imagine that this brilliant light which fills you is expanding throughout the world, and beyond. Feel your connection with the universe, with the Divine!

Give yourself permission to expand! Give yourself permission to raise your vibration, be aware of the higher energies.

When you are feeling this connection, this one-ness, just “be”. Take as much time as you like to enjoy this experience, this feeling.

Meditation 2

Begin by sitting quietly, breathing deeply and evenly, feeling yourself relax with every breath (for energy-workers, place the hands over the heart chakra, or on the abdomen). For this meditation, your intention is important, so be clear about what it is you would like to do. State your intention clearly in your head. Examples could be: “I now open myself to receive the energies of the Solstice”, or “I now open myself to receive the energies that raise my energetic vibration” etc., or whatever feels right for you! After stating your intention, imagine that with every in-breath, a white light enters the top of your head (your Crown chakra), and travels down to your Heart chakra (in the centre of your chest). When you exhale, simply allow the breath to leave your body. Remember, this white light is the energy that you called in with your intent.

Continue to breathe in the white light to your Heart chakra, seeing it glowing and growing with a brilliant light. When you feel that your Heart chakra is completely filled with this white light, intend/visualise that with every in-breath you continue to breath the white light into your Heart, and with every out-breath, your Heart chakra expands… this ball of white light continues to grow, encompassing your entire body…. continue to breath in, and then expand this light. You can enjoy this state of being, or, if you like, you can expand this light further… to encompass all around you.

Remain in this state for as long you like… but take your time with this one, it’s very special!

If you would like to join one of the worldwide meditations, I suggest that you go online and do a search for “winter solstice meditations”, this way you can also get an idea of when these meditations are taking place so that no matter where you live you will be able to synchronise your meditation with these groups.

During these times of accelerating energy and awareness, we either take action or stagnate. Remember that chaos is always part of new creation, so when it’s time to change, sometimes we just need to take a deep breath… trust… and go for it! The changing/re-organisation of energy fields creates incredibly unexpected new things in your life. So embrace the changes, go with it, consciously let go of the “old”.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week and a magical Winter Solstice.  Be sure to make the most of it!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, December 8th – 14th 2014

Hello Everyone,

Having just finished up a week filled with high-energy days, this week will give us more opportunities for quiet moments:  times when we can rest, recharge and reflect.  As we near the end of any year, it’s good to take time to look back upon our achievements, difficulties, lessons, changes etc. so that we may gather our energy and focus on making the New Year positive and productive.  During the “quieter” days we have this week, try to set aside some time for quiet reflection.  But it won’t be all quiet:  we have some high-energy days to look forward to, including the final Master Energy vibration day of 2014 occurring on Wednesday.  So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Jupiter-Retrograde

 

Monday December 8th we start the week with a high-energy day with communication, self-expression and learning strongly supported.  Today we also have Jupiter turning retrograde until April 8th of 2015.  Jupiter is all about leadership, asserting oneself, living life with joy, passion and enthusiasm as well as abundance.  During the time of Jupiter retrograde we are encouraged to look within and reflect upon how we express these aspects.  Take time today to reflect upon how you assert yourself and your leadership abilities and how you can improve and empower this area of life.   You can also reflect upon whether or not you are living your life with joy and enthusiasm and how you can increase this or start doing so.

 

Tuesday December 9th the energy will be rather low-key, so rather than pushing ahead with projects and goals it’s a good idea to just go with the flow (if possible).  In terms of starting new projects and taking action, it’s much better to wait until tomorrow when the energy will be much more active and empowering.

 

Wednesday December 10th is a VERY high-energy day, the LAST Master Energy vibration day of the year!   According to numerology, today (1+0+1+2+2+0+1+4= 11) has a, “11” Master 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 accomplishments (especially in the creative area) and productive relationships (especially in business), so get busy and make the most of this special energy!

 

Thursday December 11th the energy will be rather low-key, so once again, rather than pushing ahead with projects and goals it’s a good idea to just go with the flow (if possible).  Don’t push yourself too much either!  Instead, take time to reflect upon the past year, what you achieved, lessons that you learned and how you would like to focus your energy in the New Year.  What changes would you like to make?  What actions can you take to further yourself on your career/life/spiritual paths?  Write down your ideas so that you can work further with them.

 

Friday December 12th the energy will be smooth and flowing, strongly supporting the areas of communication (especially speaking and writing), learning and compassionate action.  It’s a great idea to start the day with a meditation (even just 5 minutes) so that you are nice and clear and better able to receive guidance and inspiration to assist you in communication today.  If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, you can try applying Reiki to the throat area for 5-10 minutes.  I also recommend doing a heart chakra meditation today so that you are better able to express compassionate action.  You can practise any heart chakra meditation you prefer, or you can try this guided meditation that I have created:  https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-heart-chakra  If you are a Reiki practitioner, you can also apply Reiki to the heart chakra (in the middle of the chest) for approximately 5-10 minutes.

 

Saturday December 13th the energy will be quiet, gentle and flowing, so rather than taking action and pushing forward with goals, it’s a good idea to just go with the flow.  Take time to reflect upon the past year, or just take time to simply relax and “be”.

 

Sunday December 14th we finish the week with high-energy day of light, bright energy.  Creativity will be flowing and connecting with others (feeling “at one”) is also strongly supported.  The feeling of “one-ness” will also extend to the world around us, enabling us to more easily manifest our ideas into the physical world.  You can make the most of today’s energy by spending time with others and also by taking time to 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.

 

Wishing all of you a positive week, with moments of great productivity as well as moments of quiet and positive reflection.

Many blessings,

Chantal
