Spring has truly arrived, everything is in bloom… and we have some great energy to look forward to this week. The big highlight occurs on Saturday the 4th when we experience the Full Moon plus a total Lunar Eclipse! The themes of transformation and opportunities also figure in a big way this week, but you can’t just sit idly and expect things to happen. It’s very important to actively work with the energy in order to reap the benefits. So let’s take a look at how we can make the most of the energy.
Monday March 30th we start the week with the energy flowing strongly in the areas of creative expression, inspired thinking, physical enjoyment and opportunities to increase the flow of prosperity and abundance. As I mentioned above, you need to actively work with this energy in order to benefit. You can do this by starting the day with meditation in which you state your intent of being open to receive these energies. By quieting the mind, you will also be able to receive inspirational ideas. You can work the energies of prosperity and abundance by setting aside time to visualising: imagine each of your goals in their completed forms, using as many of your senses as possible. Truly feel that each goal is completed. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure you work on your Reiki affirmations today.
Tuesday March 31st is a high-energy day with the focus on productivity and opportunities to increase your finances. Keep busy today, otherwise you may find yourself feeling restless or agitated. To tap into the energy of increasing financial opportunities, stay focused and set aside time to work on visualising your goals in their completed forms (as mentioned above). Again, if you’re a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an excellent day to work on affirmations related to prosperity and abundance.
Wednesday April 1st we start a new month with the energy flowing strongly in the area of healing. Much can be healed and released today, make sure you set aside time for a full Reiki self-treatment or you can receive a healing treatment from a practitioner (Reiki or other healing therapy). The healing and releasing of old issues will assist greatly in your process of transformation, so make the most of this opportunity today!
Thursday April 2nd the energy of today is strongly supportive of communication, self-expression, inspirational thinking and new beginnings. If you’ve been thinking of starting a new project or even a new routine, today is a great day to receive a big boost of positive energy for it. Take time for meditation (even just 5 minutes!) because you’ll be better able to receive inspiration you’re your mind is “quieter”. Partnerships of all types also get a good push of energy today, especially in areas of communication.
Friday April 3rd is a high-energy day with the emphasis on abundance, inspiration and strong intuition. In the morning, set your intention for being open to receive inspiration and be open to what flows to you! To work with your intuition, pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any “signs” and take time for meditation. Your intuition can also be helpful today in assisting you in the process of increasing abundance in your life, just remember to pay attention and to listen. If you would like to work more actively on increasing abundance, set aside time to visualise this and other goals in their completed forms (as detailed previously). If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an excellent day to work on abundance affirmations. As tomorrow is a very high-energy day, you may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on.
Saturday April 4th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Libra along with a total Lunar Eclipse. The Full Moon in Libra places the emphasis on relationships (both personal and business), balance and harmony. The area of the emotions is highlighted, so rather than working on practical issues it’s a much better idea to work on creating balance and harmony in relationships. Reflect upon what changes or adjustments you can make in order to accomplish this. You can also think about what actions you can take in order to connect with more like-minded people on a business and social level. The importance of the Lunar Eclipse is this: it “super charges” all energetic qualities of the Full Moon! Due to this influence, you can create some big transformations within relationships and partnerships of all types. If you are encountering any blockages in the areas of relationships, balance and harmony, take this opportunity to recognise them and the lessons that need to be learned so that these obstacles can be removed.
To fully tap into the energy of today, it’s a great idea to do a Full Moon meditation. You can do a group meditation, your own, 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 (this is both fun and wonderful).
You can also get together with friends to experience the special energy and the Lunar Eclipse! 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.

Sunday April 5th we finish the week with the energy supporting the process of transformation, specifically the release of aspects of your “self” that no longer serve your higher purpose and life-path. Think about any habits and patterns that you have that no longer “fit” with whom you are now and who you are evolving into, aspects which no longer reflect your true self. It’s time to change, let go and embrace your true self!
Wishing all of you a wonderful week! Open yourself to transformation and remember to make the most of the opportunities which are available.
