Weekly Forecast June 29th – July 5th 2015

Hello Everyone,
As June draws to a close and July is about to begin, you may notice the focus shifting to a reflective state. The month of July will be dominated by reflection, leading us to a position of being able to create positive changes in the areas of relationships, financial matters, creative expression and self-expression. Sometimes we can get so caught-up in current states, we forget to take a step back and observe. July presents us with lots of opportunities to do just this: pause, reflect upon certain areas of our lives, clearly see where changes need to be made (and what these changes should be) and then create these changes. This week, the highlight is the Full Moon in Capricorn which brings the perfect energy reflection and evaluation! So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week…

Capricorn full moon

Monday June 29th we start the week with a day of light, bright energy. The intuition will be strong, so pay attention to signs and be ready to receive flashes of inspiration regarding the making of improvements in the areas of finances and relationships. Creative expression is also strongly supported today.

Tuesday June 30th you may notice your “buttons being pushed” today. If this is the case, pay attention: you are being shown issues that you need to heal within yourself. Take time for a full self-treatment (Reiki or other healing energy) or you can arrange to receive a treatment from a healer. Of course, nobody likes having their “buttons pushed”, but these moments are very helpful on our healing paths: by paying attention and not shifting the blame onto others, these are great opportunities for healing and release.

Wednesday July 1st the energy will be gentle and flowing. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish lots of tasks, it’s a good idea to work on current goals and just “go with the flow”. You may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on and we approach the Full Moon of tomorrow.

Thursday July 2nd is a very high-energy day when we have the Full Moon in Capricorn. Any Full Moon is a great time to reflect upon what we have accomplished since the last one, how our plans may/may not have come to fruition and what we can do to create positive change in our lives. The influence of Capricorn (an Earth element sign) brings a very practical energy to this Full Moon, in that the energy supports us in evaluating the areas of personal responsibility, strategies and putting these plans into action, finances and self-discipline. Take time to reflect upon these areas and what you need to change in order to move forward successfully. It is also a good idea to reflect upon habits, situations and strategies that no longer serve your higher purpose…and then work on releasing/changing these.

To more fully connect with the energy of today, you can also try doing a Full Moon meditation. 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:

1) 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.

2) 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.

3) Join together with friends to experience the special energy! You can do a group meditation, or now that the summer is here you can 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 July 3rd we will still be experiencing some of the energetic effects of yesterday’s Full Moon, although not as intensely. Today it is a good idea to continue working on anything that may have come up yesterday through reflection on personal responsibility, strategies and putting these plans into action etc. What changes need to be made? What habits and patterns need to be released? Use your self-discipline and take action!

Saturday July 4th the energy will be light and flowing. Take time to enjoy yourself, ideally in nature, and don’t push yourself too hard. Today’s energy is all about enjoyment, not hard work!

Sunday July 5th we finish the week with a day of strong energy focused in the areas of personal transformation and positive changes in close relationships and finances. Have any issues in these areas surfaced over the past week? If so, use these as a starting point: reflect upon what lessons need to be learned, what needs to be healed and released and what changes you can make in order to create a state of transformation in these areas of life.

Wishing all of you a positive and abundant week ahead!

Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 22nd – 28th 2015

Hello Everyone,
We had lots of strong energy last week and this week we have some powerful energy, too! The big highlight is the Summer Solstice, but we also have other high-energy days coming up, including a Master “22” Vibration day on Friday. There are many opportunities this week for personal growth, change and increasing the flow of abundance in one’s life! Let’s take a detailed look at what to expect and how to make the most of the energy available:

Summer Solstice2

Monday June 22nd we start the week with a very high-energy day: the Summer Solstice (occurring just after midnight in Hong Kong and this region). This is a day of strong intuition and very positive energy. In case you missed my posting about the Solstice, here it is again in full:

There are various opinions in the spiritual world as to why the Summer Solstice is so energetically significant. However, all agree that the 21st and 22nd present us with a unique opportunity to make a ‘jump’ in consciousness. Of course, many cultures since ancient times have placed significance on the Solstices, so let’s take a look at what we can do to make the most of this energy.

Some speak about the Solstice being an opportunity to anchor universal New Light Codes in our Cosmic Hearts and the Cosmic Heart of the Planet. Others in the spiritual world talk about the Summer Solstice as a time when we are especially receptive to raising our energetic vibrations. In order to do this, one must consciously work with the energies on the 21st and 22nd through meditation, visualisation, intention, and/or energy work (Reiki etc.). Whatever you decide to do, it’s best to practise outdoors! You can do this alone, or with a group (you may enjoy celebrating the Solstice with friends!).

Begin by sitting quietly, breathing deeply and evenly, feeling yourself relax with every breath (for energy-workers, place the hands over the heart chakra, 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 combine mental exercises along with spiritual/energetic exercises, you can use the time of the Solstice to re-assess your life. Look at what you have achieved since the beginning of the year, what direction your life has taken over the past six months, and what actions you can take to create the life that you would like to be living. The ‘old way’ of doing things just doesn’t work anymore, and in order to be in harmony, we should ask ourselves the following questions:

How am I living my life right now?
Who do I love now?
Am I faithful and devoted to each person I’m connected to?
Am I ready, at a moment’s notice, to give help to those who need assistance from me?
Do I trust the ‘grand plan’ that is unfolding, no matter what may happen in all areas of my life?

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”.
At this time, I strongly advise you to review all of the spiritual tools that you’ve already gathered, feel solid in your spiritual practises, and USE these tools! Remember to sit in meditation and accept this joyful energy…. and enjoy!!!

Tuesday June 23rd we will still be feeling the energetic effects of the Solstice, but not as intensely. The intuition will still be especially strong, so take time for meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and insights. As the energy has been quite intense over the past couple of days, today you may feel “all over the place” or even agitated. If this is the case, you need to ground your energy. Use whichever grounding exercise you like best, or you can read my article about grounding for lots of suggestions: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/ You can also try my free, guided meditation: http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/ Just go to the link and then select “Guided Meditation for Grounding and Energising”.

Wednesday June 24th the energy will be more settled, but you may feel that the many high-energy days that have occurred over the past week have pushed old, unresolved issues to the surface. If you find that this is the case for you, take time to reflect upon these rather than ignoring or suppressing them. When something comes to the surface, it is “crying out” to be healed and released. Take steps to start this healing process so that you may live with more lightness, freedom and positive energy.

Thursday June 25th the energy will be rather low-key. Rather than starting new projects and trying to accomplish many tasks, it is a good idea to just “go with the flow” as much as possible. Tomorrow is a much better day for new starts and getting a lot done, so hold off until then. As tomorrow is a Master “22” vibration day, you may notice the energy steadily increasing in the evening.

Friday June 26th is a very 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+6+6+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 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.

Saturday June 27th the energy will be light and bright, and the intuition will be especially strong. Pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any signs! To better tap into your intuition, try to start the day with meditation: when the mind is still, we are better able to receive guidance and inspiration. These intuitive flashes will be especially strong in the areas of relationships and work.

Sunday June 28th we finish the week with the energy supporting us in making changes, especially in the area of relationships. Reflect upon any difficulties you have been experiencing in life… is it time for a different approach? Remember that what we resist persists, so open yourself up to possibilities and be flexible. The sooner you make necessary adjustments, the sooner things will start flowing smoothly.

Wishing all of you a positive and powerful week ahead!

Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 15th – 21st 2015

Hello Everyone,
As we head into the second half of June, we have a lot to look forward to with plenty of high-energy days and great potential! This week there are lots of high-energy days offering us great opportunities for fresh starts and manifesting our goals: the New Moon, a Master 22 energy day and the energy building up as we approach the Summer Solstice on the 22nd (here in Hong Kong, but check your area as it may occur on the 21st depending on where you live). With this in mind, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

New Moon in Gemini

Monday June 15th we start the week with a day of strong intuition, Yin (female) energy and an emphasis on expressing this female energy in a practical way by creating a clear strategy for growth and working towards one’s goals. Set aside time for meditation so that you are better able to receive guidance and intuitive flashes.

Tuesday June 16th is a high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Gemini. This is a time for new beginnings in the areas of communication and learning, but it is also a light and playful energy so keep this in mind and enjoy the day! It’s also a day to examine the duality of assertive/passive energy: ask yourself if you need to make any adjustments in these areas (being either more assertive or passive) in terms of relationships. This New Moon also highlights the areas of leadership and healing… perhaps it’s time for you to step into your role as a healer, for yourself and for others.

You can connect further with the energy of this New Moon by practising a 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.

Wednesday June 17th we have another 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 (1+7+6+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 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. There is also an emphasis on communication and self-expression today, so open up and let it flow!

Thursday June 18th the energy will be much more settled, offering us a bit of a “rest” after the past two days of very strong energy. Rather than pushing ahead with new projects, it’s a good idea to continue working on current projects and goals and just “go with the flow” as much as possible. We have some very powerful energy coming up for the rest of the week, so enjoy today’s quieter and gentler energy.

Friday June 19th is a high-energy day dominated by Yin (female) energy, especially in expressing feminine energy in an assertive sense. This includes careful planning, strategic action and embracing the feminine self.

Saturday June 20th we have another high-energy day! However, some may find today’s energy a bit difficult to deal with as the main theme is “release”. For those who are stubbornly holding on to old patterns, relationships, objects etc., the energy will be very challenging indeed. Today we should take a close look at that which no longer serves our purpose or “lifts us up”… and the work on releasing these. Besides letting go of old patterns, things, relationships etc. it is also a day to release old, stagnant energy. For this, you should set aside time for an intensive self-treatment (Reiki or other energy healing) or receive a treatment from a practitioner. You may even consider a session of Reiki Psychic Surgery in order to have stubborn, old energy removed from the body completely. However, if you can successfully release these old energies (this includes possessions, habits etc.) you’ll find that you’ll experience a sensation of incredible lightness and a feeling of rebirth. Perfect timing before the Summer Solstice!

Sunday June 21st we finish the week with a high-energy day and the focus on self-discipline, security and family relationships. This also a day for lots of inspiration, especially in realising what adjustments we need to make within ourselves in order to create greater harmony within all relationships, improve our finances and strengthen our leadership qualities. Here in Hong Kong, the Summer Solstice occurs shortly after midnight (so it’s officially on the 22nd), so you may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on.

What an incredible week we have to look forward to! Wishing all of you much inspiration, success and positive change.

Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 8th – 14th 2015

Hello Everyone,
This week we have a lot going on energetically: heightened intuition, opportunities for healing and releasing old issues and taking action in order to create a state of transformation, plus Neptune turning retrograde. We have a very strong start to the week, so make the most of it and focus on continuing the process of change and transformation throughout the week. Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect:

neptune retrograde

Monday June 8th we start the week with a VERY 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 (8+6+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 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. There is also an emphasis on communication and self-expression today, so open up and let it flow!

Tuesday June 9th the energy of taking action continues today, especially when you receive “flashes” of intuition. The intuition will be especially strong today and tomorrow, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any signs. To be more receptive to flashes of intuition, it’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just 5-10 minutes!) as by quieting the mind, we are better able to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration.

Wednesday June 10th the intuition will be strong and the energy will be flowing in the areas of creativity, communication and self-expression. As with yesterday, try starting the day with meditation so that you’re better able to receive guidance and intuitive flashes. It’s also a good idea to set aside time to reflect upon your current path: do you feel that you are currently on the right track? Do you think that you are walking your true life-path? If not, it’s time to make some changes. Your intuition can help guide you in this area.

Thursday June 11th we have Mercury turning “direct” after being retrograde since May 18th. The next few days will be a transitional period as we move away from the influence of Mercury retrograde, so by next week it should be “full steam ahead” with new projects, clear communication etc. Today there is also great potential for healing, specifically in healing and releasing very old issues (childhood issues and even karmic issues). Definitely set aside time for a full healing session: either a self-treatment or a session with a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner. Ideally, experience a session with a healer who is experienced in clearing old issues. Healing and releasing these old “hurts” allows to experience a great sense of lightness and freedom, while opening us to receive bright, new energy… so what are you waiting for?

Friday June 12th we experience Neptune turning retrograde until November. Neptune is all about spirituality, illusion, dreaming and finding one’s true potential. However, during a time of Neptune retrograde, areas of life that are out of balance can get pushed to breaking point and we are often forced to take a cold, hard look at ourselves and ask some serious questions: Have you been ignoring some big issues in your life? Have you been living in illusions? Are you walking on your true life-path? Have you been aimless?

This can be a very difficult and challenging time if one refuses to change, but let’s look at Neptune retrograde as a time of great potential and personal growth! We can do this by taking positive action: Take responsibility and stop ignoring problems (bad relationships, financial difficulties, stressful lifestyle etc.). Face up to the fact that you are responsible for these situations in your life and start taking control rather than blaming others. You can do this by re-evaluating your relationships and either heal the issues or release the relationships in question. Create a clear strategy and plan more carefully for your future in order to improve finances, feel more grounded and achieve greater success in all areas. Stop dreaming all the time and take ACTION (this also applies to those who think and talk too much, but actually accomplish very little). Separate fantasy from reality… Neptune retrograde offers a great opportunity to do just this. Recognise the patterns that have been holding you back from reaching your true potential so that you can break them and start moving forward on your true life-path. This may sound harsh to some, but sometimes all of us need a “wake up call” in order to get our lives in order or back on track.

Saturday June 13th is a day of quiet, “low-key” energy. Rather than rushing around or starting new projects, it’s a good idea to just go with the flow as much as possible. Perhaps you can take time to reflect upon the issues related to Neptune retrograde as mentioned above and recognise what you need to do in order to create a time of change and personal growth.

Sunday June 14th we finish the week with a high-energy day and the focus on communication, self-expression and releasing that which no longer serves our higher purpose. Think about any habits, patterns, relationships, beliefs etc. that neither benefit you nor “lift you up”. It’s time to let go of these and create a state of positive and powerful transformation!

Wishing all of you a powerful and positive week ahead!

Many blessings,
Chantal
