Weekly Forecast, July 27th – August 2nd 2015

Hello Everyone,

After so many high-energy days last week, you’ll notice that things will be “quieter” this week.  However, we will experience the Full Moon in Aquarius on Friday, which brings in lots of strong energy.  We also have Saturn turning “direct” on Saturday, so as the week goes on you may find yourself feeling “pushed” to take action.  We also finish off July and begin the month of August, when we can expect the energy to flow strongly in the areas of creative expression and creating a better sense of balance in all areas of life.  Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

 

Blue Moon

 

Monday July 27th we start the week with a day of strong intuition that can assist you greatly in creating clarity in areas that may have been causing you stress due to uncertainty.  I strongly recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes is beneficial!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and inspiration.  Take time to reflect upon any areas of difficulty and as you do so, be aware of any “gut feelings” that you have.  Pay attention to any signs and LISTEN to your intuition!

 

Tuesday July 28th is a day of quiet, flowing energy.  Rather than pushing ahead with plans and goals, it’s preferable to just “go with the flow” as much as possible today and continue to put energy into existing projects.

 

Wednesday July 29th the energy will be supportive in the areas of self-expression (especially in a creative sense) and mental exercises such as research and finding logical solutions to any current issues.  Make good use of this energy to assist you in achieving breakthroughs!

 

Thursday July 30th is a day of gentle, flowing energy.  As with Tuesday, rather than pushing ahead with plans and goals, it’s preferable to just “go with the flow” as much as possible today and continue to put energy into existing projects.  As tomorrow is a high-energy day, you may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on.

 

Friday July 31st is a very high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Aquarius and a Blue Moon!  When there are two Full Moons within one month, the second one is considered to be a “Blue Moon” and although this isn’t a rare occurrence, it doesn’t happen too frequently, either.  Any Full Moon is a high-energy time that encourages us to reflect upon how our goals are progressing and coming to fruition.  It’s also a time of “fullness” or abundance.  The influence of Aquarius highlights the aspects of expressing your true-self openly, strengthening and connecting better with the intuition, and using your unique talents to assist others and walk your life-path with strength and conviction.  Take time to reflect upon these areas and consider what changes may need to be made in order to awaken them and/or bring them into balance.

This Full Moon also brings with it an energy of abundance and prosperity, so take time to reflect upon this:  what changes can you make in order to improve the flow of this into your life?  You should also set aside at least 10-15 minutes to work on visualising your goals in their completed forms.  Use as many of your senses as possible, intend and feel that each goal is truly accomplished.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s a great day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

In order to make the best use of the energy today, you can try a Full Moon meditation:  you can 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.

You can also get 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.

 

Saturday August 1st we begin a new month with the energy focused in the areas of spiritual practises and creative expression.  If you aren’t grounded, this energy may cause you to feel “all over place” with difficulty focusing.  If this is the case for you, take time for a grounding exercise:  go for a walk in nature (ideally barefoot), apply Reiki (or other energy) to the first chakra, legs and feet or try a grounding meditation.  You are welcome to try my free, guided meditation for grounding and energising here:  http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/

 

Sunday August 2nd we finish the week with a high-energy day that sees Saturn turning “direct” after being retrograde since March 14th.  Whatever plans you’ve been making or pondering since March are now ready to be put into action!  Take responsibility, make strategies and create a clear schedule for implementation.  You should also think about what habits and methods you need to change in order to do this.

It’s also a great time to think about how you can do more in terms of service to others and to assess “where you’re at” on your healing path.  Ask yourself what actions you can take NOW in order to further yourself on this path of healing, both for yourself and for others.  The intuition will be especially strong today, so listen to your “gut instinct” and take time for meditation so that you are better able to receive guidance and insight regarding your current situation and strategies for the future.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, July 20th – 26th 2015

Hello Everyone,

I hope that all of you had a very productive time during last week’s run of high-energy days.  I also hope that you took time to rest and recharge on Sunday because this coming week is another one that is filled with very strong energy!  We have a lot going on, including a Master Vibration energy day and two planets turning retrograde.  As I mentioned last week, all of these high-energy days can either spur us on and enable great productivity and change… or they can cause us to feel agitated, frustrated and “all over the place”.  This is why grounding is so important:  when we are grounded, we are able to stay balanced and use the energy to our advantage.  So it’s a busy week ahead, but use this energy well!  Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect over the coming week:

Veus and Uranus

Monday July 20th we start the week with a very high-energy day.  This is a day of lots of opportunities and for taking action:  no procrastinating, do it now!  It is very important to use the strong, transformational energies of today wisely otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated, frustrated or even prone to outbursts of anger.  Although the energy today is all about action (especially in the areas of business, finance and partnerships), make sure that these actions are not coming from a place of frustration, impatience etc. The intuition will also be strong today, so listen to your “gut instinct” and pay attention to intuitive insights.  To make the most of the energy, it’s ideal to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and insight.  You should also use a “grounding” practise:  you can refer to my article that details simple practises that anyone can do http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/ or you can do whatever method you prefer.  For Reiki practitioners, apply extra Reiki to the first chakra, legs and feet.

 

Tuesday July 21st the energy will be more settled, but still active and productive.  Rather than starting new projects, you should continue to put energy into areas that you worked on yesterday.  It’s time to keep the ball rolling!

 

Wednesday July 22nd is a high-energy day with the emphasis on taking steps to establish, strengthen and/or further yourself on your path of living your life according to your higher purpose, especially in the area of service to others.  Think of ways in which you can assist others using your particular strengths:  there are so many different opportunities for volunteer work so perhaps this is something that you can explore, or you may have a talent for finances, in which case you may consider doing fund-raising activities for charity.  Today we are also urged to let go of that which no longer serves our higher purpose:  habits, patterns, situations, possessions, or even relationships.  Reflect upon these areas… those that make you feel “drained”, bring you down etc. need to be released.  Also reflect upon any unnecessary attachments that you may have, and work towards releasing these.  Although this is a high-energy day, don’t push yourself too hard… make sure you take time to relax, recharge and enjoy moments of this day!

 

Thursday July 23rd the energy will be flowing in the areas of personal and creative expression, learning and other mental pursuits.  Don’t be shy… really open up and express you inner-self!  If you are a Reiki practitioner, applying extra Reiki to the naval, throat and 3rd eye chakras will greatly assist you in creativity and expression.

 

Friday July 24th is a high-energy day that strongly supports taking action, especially in the areas of transformation and healing.  Continue to give your current projects and goals a big “push” and focus your energy rather than wasting it.  It’s also a good idea to set aside time for a full Reiki (or other energy) self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner as “old issues” can be more easily healed and released today.  Remember that as we release old energy, we create space for new energy to come flooding in… this assists greatly in the process of personal transformation!

 

Saturday July 25th is a very high-energy day with a lot going on!  Firstly, according to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (2+5+7+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.

Today we also experience Venus turning retrograde until September 6th.  Venus is all about relationships, love, expressing creativity from the heart and abundance.  During a period of Venus retrograde, it’s a great time to reflect upon these areas and recognise what needs to be changed in order to create more balance and bring in more positive energy.  For example, are you neglecting any of these areas?  Are you putting a balanced amount of energy into each?  Do you allow yourself to truly express yourself from the heart?  Are your relationships healthy and balanced?  Are you doing enough to create a flow of abundance in your life?  By reflecting upon these questions, you will realise what changes need to be made and where.  Perhaps you need to do healing in these areas, or maybe certain relationships/situations need to be released.

 

Sunday July 26th we finish the week with another high-energy day!  Today we experience Uranus turning retrograde until December 25th.  As mentioned above, when a planet turns retrograde it’s a good time for reflection (which then leads to positive action).  With Uranus, it’s time to reflect upon your state of personal growth:  Are you living life according to your higher purpose?  Are you expressing your true, authentic self?  Are you sharing your gifts and ideas with others?  Do you listen to your intuition?  The answers to these questions will assist you in your process of transformation by giving you clear ideas of what you need to do in order to create positive changes (as well as keeping you focused and grounded!).

In addition, today is also particularly supportive in the area of healing as much can be healed and released.  Take time for a full Reiki self-treatment or receive a treatment from a practitioner of Reiki (or other energy healing).

 

Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, July 13th – 19th 2015

Hello Everyone,
We have a week ahead packed with high-energy days with opportunities for lots of productivity, healing and manifesting abundance and prosperity. For the next week or so, there will be a current of energy flowing that strongly supports us in achieving goals. In order to make the most of this, it is very important to focus, have clear goals and a strategy for reaching them. Goals will not manifest themselves, so stay grounded, listen to your inner-guidance and keep pushing forward! As the energy will be almost non-stop, it is more important than usual to stay grounded otherwise you may end up feeling agitated, frustrated or “all over the place”. To assist with grounding, you can read my article which includes lots of tips, as well as doing a grounding meditation. If you are a Reiki practitioner, remember to apply extra Reiki to the first chakra and the legs/feet.  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/  Grounding meditation: http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/ So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

cancer new moon

Monday July 13th we start the week with a high-energy day and the energy flowing strongly and smoothly, especially in the areas of healing and abundance. As the intuition will also be very strong today, pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any signs that can assist you in these areas. Ideally, start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes) so that you are better able to receive guidance. Much can be achieved today in terms of healing, so make sure you set aside time for a full self-healing session (Reiki or other energy healing) or receive a treatment from another practitioner. In terms of improving the flow of abundance and prosperity, keep taking action according to your strategy of reaching goals as well as taking at least 10-15 minutes to sit quietly and visualise your goals in their completed forms. When you do this, try to use as many of the senses as possible, truly feel and intend that each goal is completed.

 

Tuesday July 14th is a high-energy day with the focus on big changes and personal transformation. Take time to reflect upon your current life situation: relationships, finances, personal expression etc. and recognise where old habits and fears are holding you back. By recognising and then releasing fears, habits etc. or by making adjustments in these areas, you’ll find that more energy will come flowing in to your life and things will progress much more smoothly and positively. It’s time to let go of that which no longer serves your higher purpose! The intuition will also be especially strong, so listen to your inner-voice and take action NOW. However, be aware that those who are still holding on to old habits, situations, relationships etc. will be having an especially difficult time today and for the next few days. There could be angry outbursts, moments of extreme agitation etc. as they struggle internally: holding on while the higher-self is pushing for release and change. So be patient and compassionate with those around you!

 

Wednesday July 15th we experience another high-energy day with the focus on taking action and being responsible for these actions. Continue working on the issues that may have come up yesterday so that you can use the powerful energy this week to create changes. If you feel that those around you are not “pulling their weight”, rather than getting annoyed or angry try to focus on being a good example to others. Walk your talk! This can be very inspiring and tends to be much more effective than repeating the same words over and over again. This is also a very good day for healing, as much can be resolved and released. Take time for a full Reiki self-treatment (or other energy healing) or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner. The intuition will continue to be very strong, so remember to listen to your inner-voice and pay attention to any “signs”.

 

Thursday July 16th is a VERY high-energy day, the most powerful of the entire week! The theme of transformation continues and there is plenty of fantastic energy today to assist with this process. Firstly, today we experience the New Moon in Cancer. The time of any New Moon is one of new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Cancer focuses more of this in the areas of close relationships, family and emotional expression. What new energy can you bring to these areas? How can you continue your process of your transformation and thereby affect change in all of these areas? By consciously “drawing” on today’s energy, you can achieve much today! One way to do this is through 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 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 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. If you prefer, you can also use other methods of “sending”, such as using a photograph. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

Furthermore, according to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (1+6+7+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.

The combination of Master energy plus the New Moon makes today very special! However, I’ll repeat this again: if you feel agitated, short-tempered, “all over the place” etc. it’s important to ground yourself. So much strong energy can really throw us “off” if we’re not balanced, so make sure that you stay grounded.

 

Friday July 17th is our fifth high-energy day in a row! We’ll still be feeling some of the effects of yesterday’s energy, plus the energy will be flowing strongly today in manifesting greater abundance and prosperity in our lives. In order to do this, you need to be conscious of the energy and use it to your benefit: have a clear strategy, start working on it immediately, and set aside time to work on manifesting your goals through visualisation (as mentioned above). The energy today is also very supportive of healing and creating more stability in close/family relationships.

 

Saturday July 18th the energy will be settling down a bit, but there will still be a strong flow of it in the areas of relationships and stability. Reflect upon your relationships and the energy you put into them. Is there a good balance in the energy you put in and the energy you receive? Do you give joyfully and from the heart or do you give with the expectation to receive? Think about how you can create more balance in this area. It’s also a good idea to reflect upon your current financial situation: are you spending within your means or spending excessively? Are you taking action to ensure a smooth flow of abundance and stability? The answers to these questions will enable you to further create positive changes.

 

Sunday July 19th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. After so much strong energy this week, all of us deserve a day of rest and time to recharge! It’s a good day to just “go with the flow” and not try to get too much done. Ideally, take time for a full self-healing session or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner of Reiki (or other energy healing).

 

Wishing all of you a fantastic, powerful and productive week!

Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, July 6th – 12th 2015

Hello Everyone,
We have an interesting week ahead, with many days of strong and transformative energy. These changes are not only about transforming the self, but also transforming other areas of life (especially close relationships and the flow of abundance and prosperity). It’s time to put strategies and ideas into action and to be an inspiration to others! So let’s take a look at the energy we can expect this week and what we can do to make the most of it and create a wonderful state of positive change.

22 vibration

Monday July 6th we start the week with bright, strong energy and the focus on personal transformation. This energy is also supportive of changes in the areas of finances, home life and close relationships, so set aside time to reflect upon what changes you can make in order to improve and strengthen these areas. The intuition will also be quite strong, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” especially with regards to the areas mentioned above.

Tuesday July 7th 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 (7+7+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.

Wednesday July 8th the strong energy continues, especially in the areas of manifesting abundance and prosperity as well as supporting clear and loving communication in strengthening close relationships (especially within families). Set aside time to express yourself and speak from the heart with love, clarity and compassion. In terms of manifesting, continue with any practises that you used yesterday in making the most of the “22” Master energy.

Thursday July 9th we have another day of strong energy! However, today this strong energy supports the areas of dramatic personal change and transformation. Rather than just thinking about how you would like to change yourself for the better, it’s time to walk your talk. Realise also that by changing yourself, you then become a more positive influence for change amongst your friends and family. Furthermore, this positive energy will also have a beneficial effect on the flow of abundance and prosperity in your life. Just as throwing a pebble into a pond creates a “ripple effect”, so your process of change and transformation will affect all of these areas of your life. So what are you waiting for? The time is now, so go for it!

Friday July 10th the energy will be more settled and “quiet”. After experiencing four days of strong energy, take time to appreciate this day of low-key energy. Don’t push yourself too hard and allow yourself to relax and recharge.

Saturday July 11th we have a second day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to just go with the flow. Rest, relax and recharge! Tomorrow the energy will be stronger and so you may feel like a lot more activity, but for today, just take it easy as much as possible.

Sunday July 12th we finish the week with a day of strong, positive energy. Much like the energy we experienced on Thursday, the focus is on personal change and transformation. Continue to take action in this area with the full knowledge that as you transform and change for the better, you will also be an agent for positive change for those close to you. Rather than using your words to change others, it is much more powerful and effective to keep your mouth shut and change yourself. Be an example to others!

Wishing all of you a positive and transformative week ahead.

Many blessings,
Chantal
