Weekly Forecast, May 25th – 31st 2015

Hello Everyone,
It’s hard to believe that another month has flown by! As we enter the last week of May, we find that the energy this week supports us in terms of personal and spiritual transformation. There are also some good opportunities for working on manifesting our goals. Wednesday should provide us with the strongest energy all week, but there is still lots going on that we can use productively. Let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect:

22 vibration

Monday May 25th we start the week with heightened intuition and the energy flowing strongly in the areas of communication (especially writing) and creating change through unconventional means in the areas of relationships, finances and personal expression. Listen to your intuition and what it is guiding you to do in these areas! Rather than just following what others are doing or are telling you to do, be inspired and think outside these boundaries. Today is also a good one for doing special work in your spiritual practise as well as working on manifesting your goals and dreams!

Tuesday May 26th the energy will be gentler and more settled than yesterday. Instead of pushing ahead with new projects, it’s a better idea to just go with the flow and not push yourself too hard. Tomorrow the energy will be much stronger and more suited to taking action, so if possible you should save the activity for then.

Wednesday May 27th is a high-energy day. According to numerology this day has special energetic significance, as the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (2+7+5+2+0+1+5= 22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is perfect for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). This is a day to take action, so be sure to make the most of it! It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations. As the energy will be strong today, make sure you stay grounded otherwise you may feel agitated. Remember to express yourself with compassion and kindness.
Today there is also great potential for healing, especially on the emotional level, so take time for a full Reiki self-treatment or receive a treatment from a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner.

Thursday May 28th the energy will be gentle and flowing, making this another day to not push too hard or overdo things. Appreciate the “quieter” energy of today and allow yourself to take things easy wherever possible.

Friday May 29th The energy is all about transformation, both spiritually and practically. On the spiritual level, take time for meditation (even just a few minutes) so that you can better receive guidance and inspiration in this area. If your thoughts are “all over the place” today, it’s time for some serious grounding! Regarding the practical side of life, reflect upon any areas that are “blocked” (and therefore require action and change) and then create a plan of action… then take the first step!

Saturday May 30th the energy will be flowing strongly in the areas of intuition, guidance and inspired thinking. Start the day with meditation so that you’re better able to receive guidance and insights throughout the day. Make note of these and give them consideration. You may also receive some interesting insights regarding those around you!

Sunday May 31st we finish the week (and the month!) with energy that empowers spiritual awakening, creative inspiration and positive shifts in committed relationships and partnerships of all types. Start the day with a spiritual practise (meditation, Reiki or other energy practise, or whatever practise you enjoy) and open yourself to receive divine guidance and inspiration. In terms of relationships, think about what changes you can make… and think outside the box!

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!
Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, May 18th – 24th 2015

Hello Everyone,
As we move into the second half of May, there are many opportunities to increase prosperity and abundance in our lives. For the next couple of weeks, make sure you stay grounded and take time (daily, if possible) to work on manifesting any goals regarding abundance and prosperity. This week there are plenty of opportunities for this, but the most active day we’ll experience this week occurs tomorrow (Monday) when we experience a “triple hit”: the New Moon, Mercury retrograde and a “22” Master vibration day! So let’s take a detailed look at what is coming up and how we can best use this energy.

Taurus New Moon

Monday May 18th we start the week with a VERY high-energy day! There is so much going on today: The New Moon in Taurus, a “22” Master Vibration day and Mercury turning retrograde… so let’s look at these one at a time. The time of any New Moon is ideal for “planting seeds” of future endeavours, starting new projects and working on manifesting goals. This Taurus New Moon places the emphasis on the physical/material areas of life: increasing abundance and prosperity through your own efforts, enjoying the physical side of life and working steadily. You can more fully tap into the energy of this New Moon by practising a New Moon meditation. Do whichever one feels best for you, 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 try “sending” Reiki to the Moon. Sit quietly and comfortably, prepare your hands for sending Reiki, and draw your 3 Reiki symbols over the Moon (using visualisation, a photo, directly etc.). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

According to numerology this day has special energetic significance, as the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (1+8+5+2+0+1+5= 22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is perfect for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). This is a day to take action, so be sure to make the most of it! It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise. With the energy of today, the sky is the limit so really go for it! If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

Today we also have Mercury turning retrograde until June 11th. During the time of Mercury retrograde, it is advisable to double-check all travel plans, back up computer files and be careful with all forms of communication. Be very clear in how you express yourself, as well as listening carefully. If possible, delay making large purchases and signing important contracts until the time of retrograde finishes. Usually, the time of Mercury retrograde is seen as a time of mix-ups with communication and travel, but there are also some very positive aspects to this time. You can use this time to work on current projects, increase your knowledge and learning and also take time to reflect upon any areas of life where you are experiencing difficulties. Go within and reflect upon what adjustments and strategies you can make in order to get things moving along smoothly. Increase your sense of self-discipline, take responsibility and stay focused!

All in all, today is an incredibly powerful day to manifest goals (work with the Law of Attraction is also strongly supported), take action and really make things happen. However, as the energy today is very strong, it is important to stay balanced and grounded, otherwise you may feel agitated or “all over the place”. Start the day with a grounding exercise in order to avoid this. You can try this quick, guided meditation for grounding that I created: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding and if you are a Reiki practitioner you can also try applying extra energy to the first chakra, legs and feet.

Tuesday May 19th we will still be feeling some of the effects of the incredibly powerful day we experienced yesterday. Focus on being productive, keeping the energy flowing and staying grounded and self-disciplined. Today is another good one for working on manifesting your goals, working with Reiki affirmations and doing work with the Law of Attraction.

Wednesday May 20th the energy will be rather “low-key”. Rather than pushing ahead and trying to accomplish lots of tasks, it’s a better idea to just go with the flow as much as possible. Allow yourself time to rest, reflect and recharge. The energy will be much stronger tomorrow, so appreciate the quieter energy of today.

Thursday May 21st is a high-energy day when the areas of communication, learning and creating transformation in relationships are strongly supported. Increasing prosperity is also strongly highlighted. However, in terms of increasing prosperity, it is important to be open to making changes and adjustments to one’s attitudes and strategies. This is a wonderful day to work on visualising and manifesting: sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations. Remember that when you are visualising, feeling, intending etc., try to be as detailed and exact as possible. The Universe doesn’t respond to vague notions of prosperity and abundance: you need to visualise in as detailed a manner as possible. Also consider how you can use your increased prosperity to benefit others. You’ll find that if you are trying to manifest in order to only benefit yourself, this creates a limited and “tight” energy. It’s fine to want more for yourself, but when you share your wealth with others (through philanthropy, charity etc.) you create an expansive and positive energy.

Friday May 22nd the energy will be flowing strongly in the areas of productivity, learning and self-expression. However, if you find that you are encountering difficulties in moving ahead with your projects and goals, you can remedy this by being more self-disciplined, responsible and aware of how you are using your time. Stay grounded and don’t scatter your energy by talking too much (especially talking without action!).

Saturday May 23rd the energy will be gentle and settled. Rather than pushing ahead with goals and projects, today is better-suited to going with the flow and enjoying the day.

Sunday May 24th we finish the week with a high-energy day focusing on healing and creating powerful and positive changes in relationships and prosperity. Take time for a full Reiki treatment, either a self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a Reiki (or other energy healing) practitioner, as much can be healed and released today. It’s also a great day to work on manifesting prosperity in your life: sit quietly and visualise your goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, work on your Reiki affirmations of prosperity and abundance. Remember that when you are visualising, feeling, intending etc., try to be as detailed and exact as possible.

Wishing all of you a positive, prosperous and abundant week ahead!

Many blessings,
Chantal

Hello Everyone,

This week the focus will mostly be on communication, self-expression and healing.  Make the most of the aspect of communication, as Mercury turns retrograde next week and this usually means that communication will be challenging for the following three weeks.  In terms of healing, rather than focusing on old issues, the focus will be on creating a state of energetic balance and calm.  There are also some opportunities for moving ahead on one’s path.  Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect during the coming week:

aristotle quote1

Monday May 11th we start the week with the energy flowing strongly in the areas of healing, communication and learning.  In terms of healing, the focus is on the physical side so take time for Reiki (which works on all levels, including the physical), massage or any other type of bodywork.  Regarding communication, take time to express yourself and pay equal attention to listening.  There is an active energy today, so rather than just thinking about what you have learned, put it into practise!

 

Tuesday May 12th is a high-energy day filled with fiery, “yang” (male) energy.  It’s a day of taking control, communicating, being a leader and making strides on your life path.   By expressing yourself truthfully, clearly and with passion, you have the potential to persuade others to assist you in ways that will benefit all involved.  On the spiritual side, walk your talk and truly feel yourself to be an expression of your higher state.  This is also a great day for any work with the Law of Attraction, and if you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure you set aside time to work on your Reiki affirmations as great results can be achieved today.

As the energy today is quite strong, it is very important to stay balanced and grounded, otherwise you may feel agitated or “all over the place”.  Start the day with a grounding exercise in order to avoid this.  You can try this quick, guided meditation for grounding that I created:    https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding  and if you are a Reiki practitioner you can also try applying extra energy to the first chakra, legs and feet.

 

Wednesday May 13th the energy will be flowing smoothly and supporting the areas of healing and guidance.  In healing, focus on balancing and energising in order for you to be at your best… not only for yourself but also for those around you.  In terms of guidance, be ready to offer this to others and do so with patience, compassion and understanding.  Remember, there is a big difference between forcing your ideas upon others, and assisting others in reaching their full potential in their own way.

 

Thursday May 14th the energy will be rather “low-key”, so rather than pushing ahead with new projects it is better to work on existing projects and goals and just go with the flow when possible.  Save the action for tomorrow, when the energy will be supportive of this.

 

Friday May 15th is a high-energy day with the focus on using your mental capabilities in creating a clear plan of action.  Clearly identify what it is you would like to accomplish (both short-term and long-term), create a step-by step strategy and then immediately begin working on “step 1”.  Don’t just think about it… do it!

 

Saturday May 16th the energy will be strongly supportive in the area of the emotions, specifically in the heart chakra.  Today, be conscious of opening your heart and expressing kindness and compassion towards others, as well as yourself.  You’ll find that when you express this energy towards others, wonderfully positive energy will also flow into your life.

 

Sunday May 17th we finish the week with a high-energy day.  You may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on and we approach tomorrow’s New Moon.    Much can be accomplished today, but if you feel like playing instead of working, try to take time for outdoor activities.  You can also reflect upon fresh starts and new beginnings that you would like to create in your life and then work on these tomorrow.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, May 4th – 10th 2015

Hello Everyone,

We have a couple of very high-energy days to look forward to this week:  the Full Moon on Monday and a “22” Master Vibration day on Saturday.  There are lots of opportunities for personal transformation and strengthening different areas of life:  relationships, finances and personal expression… so make the most of it!  Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Full Moon Scorpio

Monday May 4th we start the week with a VERY high-energy day and the Full Moon in Scorpio.  This places the emphasis on close relationships, partnerships and spiritual and transformational practises.  The energy of today creates the ideal conditions for changes and release in these areas, and as the intuition will also be especially strong today, listen to your inner-guidance on how you can work on these areas.  I’d also like to add that today is also celebrated as Wesak Day:  one of the most important festivals in the Buddhist calendar that commemorates the three significant events in Buddha’s life (his birth, enlightenment and passing away).

You can also use today’s energy by using your intuition to think of ways to move forward on your path and then “ground” these intuitive flashes by creating a practical strategy of achieving these goals.  You can also connect with the energy by doing a Full Moon meditation.  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 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.

Now that the weather is lovely, you can think about getting 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.

 

Tuesday May 5th the energy will be much more settled compared to yesterday.  Rather than starting new projects, it’s a good idea to work on existing projects today and to just go with the flow if possible.  Don’t push yourself too hard!

 

Wednesday May 6th the energy will be relaxed and flowing, so it’s great if you can take time today for enjoyment and appreciating the blessings in your life.  There will also be an emphasis on personal transformation, so it’s a good idea to start the day with a healing practise such as Reiki.  Or you can set aside time to meditate on your state of being, your process of personal transformation and your goals in this area, and what is needed in order to reach these goals.

 

Thursday May 7th the energy will be very “Yin” (feminine) and the focus will be on relationships (especially the strengthening and nurturing of family members).  There are also strong possibilities for flashes of inspiration in the areas of creativity and finances, so pay attention to these!  You can be more receptive to these “flashes” by taking time for meditation (even for just a few minutes), as this enables us to be more open and receptive.

 

Friday May 8th is a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects, it’s a good idea to continue working on existing projects and just go with the flow (if possible).  You may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on, as we approach tomorrow’s very high-energy.

 

Saturday May 9th is a VERY high-energy day, a “22 Master Vibration” day!  According to numerology this day has special energetic significance, as the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (9+5+2+0+1+5= 22).  “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is perfect for starting new projects and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future).  This is a day to take action, so be sure to make the most of it!  It’s also a great day to work on manifesting your goals, so ensure that you set aside some time to sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms.  To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear… and most of all, intend) when you visualise.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

The intuition will also be very strong today, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any signs that are there to guide you.  Ideally, start the day with meditation so that you are better able to receive guidance.  As the energy is so strong today, remember to stay grounded otherwise you may find yourself feeling “all over the place”.  If you are a Reiki practitioner, apply Reiki to your first chakra, legs and feet.  Everyone can also benefit from using the techniques listed here:  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/

 

Sunday May 10th we finish the week with a day of reflection and adjustment:  take time to reflect upon your relationships, creative expression and finances and what adjustments need to be made in order to strengthen and improve these areas in your life.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful and productive week!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal
