High Energy Days January 26th – February 1st 2015

Hello Everyone,

We finish the month of January with a week of strong intuition and opportunities for healing and positive action in our daily lives.  Be aware that Mercury is still retrograde, so make sure that you express yourself clearly (and don’t forget to listen to others!) and reconfirm appointments and travel plans.  So, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect during the week ahead:

 

Monday January 26th we start the week with a strong flow of energy supporting ideas, strategies and inspiration.  You may have been filled with lots of ideas last week on how to progress in the different areas of your life, and today you can further these by taking time to reflect upon what practical steps you can take to put these ideas into practise.  You may be “hit” with flashes of inspiration, but you can also facilitate this by taking time for at least 5-10 minutes of meditation.

 

Tuesday January 27th the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of inspiration and creative expression, as well as providing us with the opportunity to connect more deeply with our inner-selves and strengthen the heart chakra.  You can use today’s energy by continuing with practical work on plans and strategies for your goals, allowing your expression to flow and by working on the heart chakra.  You may want to start the day with a heart chakra meditation:  you can simply place the hands over the heart and try any meditation you prefer, or you can also try my guided meditation for the heart chakra:  https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-heart-chakra  When the heart chakra is balanced and strong, we are able to have love for ourselves and thereby share this love selflessly with others as well as live life with more compassion and joy.  This raises one’s energetic vibration, allowing positive energy to flow strongly in all areas of life.

 

Wednesday January 28th the energy will be light and bright, empowering the intuition…so be prepared for insights and sudden moments of inspiration!  Ideally, start the day with at least 5-10 minutes of meditation so that you are better able to receive any messages or insights.  Pay attention to any signs and your “gut instinct” and write your ideas/intuitive thoughts down so that you can investigate them further.

 

Thursday January 29th the energy will be gentle and flowing, making this a day to just “go with the flow”.  Rather than pushing yourself to get things done, take time to enjoy the quiet!

 

Friday January 30th is a high-energy day when the areas of finances, relationships and self-expression are highlighted, but be aware that this energy can be either challenging or empowering depending on how you have been handling these areas.  If you’ve been avoiding responsibilities or otherwise neglecting these areas, there could be problems today.  Take note of any issues that may come up today so that you can rectify the situation.  On the other hand, if you have been taking positive action in these areas, you will find today very productive and positive.  The intuition will be strong today, so pay attention to any “flashes” of inspiration and take time to listen to your inner-voice.

 

Saturday January 31st the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of healing, especially in healing and releasing old issues that may have been pushed to the surface recently.  Reflect upon events over the past few days… are there any issues that you may have been avoiding or any patterns that have been coming up?  Much can be accomplished today in terms of healing, so I strongly recommend taking time for a full Reiki self-treatment (or other healing treatment), or receive a treatment from a practitioner.  If you are a healer, you will also find that your abilities will be greatly enhanced today.

 

Sunday February 1st we start a new month with a VERY high-energy day!  According to numerology, today (1+2+2+0+1+5= 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.  Aim high and maintain your focus and self-discipline so you can really make this an incredibly positive day.  Keep in mind that there will only be two Master “11” vibration days this month, so use your time well today!

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead, filled with insights and clarity.

Many blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, January 19th – 25th 2015

Hello Everyone,

Energetically, we have a lot going on this week:  the New Moon, a Master Energy vibration day, plus Mercury turning retrograde on Wednesday.  Basically, we’re looking at nearly an entire week of high-energy days… but we get a very quiet and relaxed weekend that will be perfect for relaxing and recharging.  With all of the powerful energy this week, make sure that you stay “grounded” otherwise you could find yourself feeling agitated, “all over the place”, forgetful and even accident-prone!  In order to stay grounded you can start every morning with a grounding exercise or a grounding meditation.  Here is the link to my article on grounding that has lots of suggestions (as well as a grounding meditation) for everyone:  http://www.healingfire.com/?p=411

And now for a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

new moon aquarius

Monday January 19th we start the week with a high-energy day when the intuition will be especially strong.  Finances, relationships and creative expression are highlighted… but be aware that the energy of today can make challenging areas even more so, and positive areas flow even more smoothly and strongly.  If you find yourself facing challenges today, remember to listen to your intuition and take time for meditation so that you can receive guidance more easily.  Today there is also lots of energy supporting spiritual activities, so you can make the most of it by starting the day with a Reiki treatment, yoga or tai-chi session, meditation etc.

 

Tuesday January 20th is a VERY high-energy day, the most powerful of the entire week with a very potent combination of a New Moon and Master Energy vibration.  According to numerology, today (2+0+1+2+0+1+5= 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.  Aim high, maintain your focus and self-discipline and you can really make this an incredibly positive and productive day.

Today we also experience the New Moon in Aquarius, so there will be a strong flow of energy supporting flashes of inspiration, especially in areas where you can be of service to others.  Be aware of expressing your true self and really allowing yourself to shine!  The intuition will also be very strong today, so pay attention to any signs and listen to your “gut instinct”.  In general, a New Moon is a great time for new beginnings and starting new projects, so when this is combined with an “11” vibration we have the perfect day to take action and make wonderful things happen!  By the way, today the Moon will be at its closest to the Earth all month, so this makes the lunar energies even stronger!

It’s also a great idea to do a special meditation today:  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 New 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 connect with the energy by sending Reiki to the Moon. Sit quietly and comfortably, prepare your hands for sending Reiki, and draw your 3 Reiki symbols over the Moon (if you can’t see the Moon, you can simply visualise it). 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, give it a try!).

 

Wednesday January 21st is another VERY high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s extremely powerful energy, plus we have Mercury turning retrograde.  The themes of yesterday still apply to today:  strong intuition, flashes of inspiration and a desire to do more to help others.  The only thing I will say is that while it’s great to continue working on goals and projects, it isn’t advisable to start anything new today (or for the remainder of Mercury retrograde) if possible.

Mercury will be retrograde until February 2nd, so from now until then take extra care with all areas of travel and communication:  reconfirm travel plans and meetings, back-up all important data on your computer, avoid making major purchases and starting new projects and in all matters of communication you should take extra care to express yourself clearly (as well as listening carefully!).

However, it’s not all bad!  The period of Mercury retrograde can be a very productive time:  working on current projects and goals is supported, the intuition is strong and it is also a good time for reflecting upon the different areas of your life and what actions you can take to create positive and powerful improvements.  Make some clear plans and strategies and prepare to start putting these into practise after February 2nd.

 

Thursday January 22nd is a high-energy day with strong emphasis on balance:  balancing the male and female aspects and energy within the self and recognising when to take action and when to be still.  By reflecting upon how you express these aspects you can then express the energy that is appropriate for any given situation.  Listen to your intuition, as it will help you decide your actions depending on the circumstances.

 

Friday January 23rd the energy will be bright and flowing, supporting us in taking action, accomplishing tasks (both big and small) and working towards achieving goals.  If you are working with others, make sure that you express yourself clearly and also listen to others:  sometimes we can be pleasantly surprised by suggestions made by those whose opinions and thoughts we may not have considered before!

 

Saturday January 24th the energy will be gentle and flowing, so rather than taking action or pushing ahead with plans it’s a better idea to take it easy and go with the flow (if possible).  Allow yourself the time to relax, especially after such a busy week.

 

Sunday January 25th we have another day of gentle, flowing energy.  As with yesterday, don’t push yourself too hard or try to accomplish lots of tasks.  Instead, take time to rest and recharge, just go with the flow and spend the day doing things that you find relaxing.  Just as it’s important to take advantage of high-energy days by taking action, it’s equally important to make the most of days such as today by just letting go and allowing yourself the day “off”.

 

Wow, a very exciting week ahead, but make sure that you don’t over-do things:  stay focused, don’t scatter your energy and stay grounded.  I wish all of you a very productive and positive week!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

 

High Energy Days, January 12th – 18th 2015

Hello Everyone,

Although we don’t have any “super” high-energy days this week, we will experience a strong and steady flow of energy throughout much of the week.  It’s a big week for inspiration, ideas, creating strategies and putting them into action.  We also have some good opportunities for empowering relationships!  Make the most of ideas and communication this week, as we have Mercury turning retrograde next week which can often lead to problems with communication and self-expression.  So let’s take a look at what we can expect this week…

 

Monday January 12th we start the week with a high-energy day when inspiration, creativity and spiritual advancement are strongly supported.  To make the most of inspiration and creativity, I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just 5-10 minutes), as when the mind is still we are better able to receive ideas and inspiration.  In terms of spiritual work, it’s a great day to work on the heart chakra.  Start the day with a heart chakra meditation:  you can do any that work well for you or you can try my guided meditation for the hear chakra:  https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-heart-chakra  If you are a Reiki practitioner, this meditation can be made powerful by placing the hands over the heart chakra while you listen.  Be especially aware of sharing love and compassion with others today.

 

Tuesday January 13th we have strong energy continuing to empower inspiration and creativity.  Today it’s a good idea to reflect upon relationships and finance:  it’s likely that you can come up with some great ideas on what you can do to elevate these areas.  You can also take time 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!

 

Wednesday January 14th is a high-energy day when we can accomplish much, especially in the areas where you have been receiving inspiration over the past couple of days.  The intuition will be strong and the mind especially sharp, so get ready for big flashes of inspiration and take action!  It’s also a very good day to work on relationships, specifically in creating positive changes and growth.  Once again, make the most of the energy by starting the day with meditation and/or an energy practise such as Reiki, yoga, tai-chi etc.  This will enable you to stay grounded through the strong energy as well as enabling you to maximise the potential of today.

 

Thursday January 15th the energy will be strongly supportive in the areas of problem-solving, practical thinking and creating strategies.  However, in terms of taking action, you may feel as if you are being “blocked”.  Rather than letting this derail your plans or throw you off balance, maintain your focus:  visualise the end result of your goal and realise the importance of not giving up!  Achieving our goals takes steady and consistent effort/energy, so don’t let any obstacles stand in your way… create a strategy, be practical and keep going.

 

Friday January 16th the energy will be rather gentle, so rather than pushing ahead with current projects or starting something new, it’s a good to “just go with the flow” and not push yourself too hard.  Allow yourself time to rest and recharge.

 

Saturday January 17th the energy will be very supporting in the area of relationships, especially committed partnerships.  Take time to sit quietly and reflect upon this area in order to receive guidance and inspiration regarding what steps you can take in order to heal, improve and empower these relationships.  If you do a heart chakra meditation beforehand, you will be in an even better position to receive inspiration.

 

Sunday January 18th is a day of gentle, flowing energy.  This makes it a great day to just relax, rest, recharge and enjoy the end of the weekend.  Don’t do anything too strenuous today, allow yourself to just “go with the flow” and enjoy the day!

 

Wishing all of you a productive and positive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

High Energy Days, January 5th – 11th 2015

Hello Everyone,

The Full Moon in Cancer tomorrow will be the fifth high-energy day in a row, but we’ll have lots of time mid-week to rest, recharge and reflect. After such a whirlwind start to the year, this quieter period coming up is a good opportunity to think about what you would truly like to accomplish this year, as well as creating a strategy for achieving those goals. Remember that it is very important to have these goals so that you can maintain your focus, otherwise you will not be able to make the best use of the energy and you’ll find yourself un-grounded and “all over the place”. That said, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week.

Cancer full moon

 

Monday January 5th we start the week with a VERY high-energy day: a Full Moon in Cancer plus a strong current of energy supporting the process of transformation. The Full Moon in Cancer energises and emphasises the areas of the emotions, family, home, the unconscious and healing. Take time today to reflect upon changes you can make in order to bring positive transformation to these areas. As there is also great potential for healing, make sure to set aside time for a full Reiki self-treatment or receive a treatment from a practitioner. You can also reflect upon what changes you can make within yourself that will enable you to live life in a way that serves your higher purpose as well as benefitting others. The intuition will be very strong today, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and set aside time for meditation (even just 5-10 minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and insight. To make the most of today’s energy, it’s also a great idea to do a Full Moon meditation. You can do any type that you prefer, or you can try the following:

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. You can also get together with friends to experience the special energy!  You can do a group meditation, appreciate the Moon, and feel a sense of gratitude for the beauty of nature, and the love from those around us.

Tuesday January 6th the energy will be much calmer and low-key. From today, we will be experiencing three days of gentler, flowing energy. During this time, it’s a good idea to go with the flow and not push yourself too hard. If possible, delay starting new projects until the end of the week. Take time to relax, reflect and recharge: take time for a daily Reiki treatment, yoga or tai chi session… any spiritual practise that calms, balances and energises you.

Wednesday January 7th the energy will be low-key, as mentioned above.

Thursday January 8th is the third day of quiet, low-key energy.

Friday January 9th the intuition will be strong and energy will much stronger, but be aware that it will be quite unpredictable. This can cause people to be short-tempered, agitated etc. so if possible, avoid people and situations that have the potential for confrontation. If you find that you are feeling agitated, take a few minutes to ground yourself. My free, guided meditation for grounding can be very helpful for this: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding  or you can read my post on grounding for lots of tips: http://www.healingfire.com/?p=411 If you stay grounded and aware, there is good potential today for positive action.

Saturday January 10th the energy will be strong and very similar to the energy of yesterday. Stay grounded and make the most of the energy by taking time to reflect upon your goals and then making clear plans for reaching them. It’s also a good day for creativity and positive self-expression. In contrast with yesterday, the intuition will not be as strong today, so focus more on the practical side of things.

Sunday January 11th the energy will be flowing strongly in supporting taking action in pursuing your goals. Aim high, create a strategy and really go for it!

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week, and remember to make good use of the time for action as well as the time for rest and reflection.

Many blessings,

Chantal
