Weekly Forecast, Aug 31st – Sept 6th 2015

Hello Everyone,

We begin the month of September and head into autumn with a week of very strong energy coming up, with much of it focused in the area of spirituality.  It’s a good time to reflect upon your current spiritual practises, how you can strengthen them and how you can share the benefits with others.  This isn’t about pushing your views or beliefs upon others.  Rather, think of a pebble being cast into a pond and the ripples caused by this:  by your positive actions, you will create your own “ripple effect” whereby you inspire those around you.  However, this week isn’t only about the spiritual as we have a couple of days that are fantastic for manifesting your goals.  We also have Venus turning “direct” after being retrograde since the end of July.  So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

thich quote 3

Monday August 31st we start the week with a day of strong energy that can either lift you up or drag you down, depending on your state of balance and self-discipline.  In the positive sense, today there is great potential for inspiration, creative expression and expanding the higher consciousness.  However, if you lack self-discipline and focus you may find yourself over-indulging, daydreaming and going through the day in a state of denial.  In order to make the most of today’s energy, have a clear “to do” list for the day and stick to it!

 

Tuesday September 1st is a high-energy day with the focus on love partnerships, creative expression, sharing ideas and enjoyable activities with others and also manifesting your goals.  As there is a very strong aspect of “sharing” today, be aware of how you relate to others and whether or  not you are taking actions that benefit everyone involved (rather than only benefitting yourself).  In terms of manifesting, focus on that which serves your highest good rather than on selfish desires.  Take time to list each of your goals and how you can make each of them a reality.  The emphasis here is on manifesting goals through the use of strategy, creativity and positive action/energy.  In addition to this, you can sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms:  visualise with as much detail as possible, engage as many of your senses as possible, truly feel and intend that each goal is now completed.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, make sure you set aside time to work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Wednesday September 2nd the intuition will be especially sharp and the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of the spiritual:  your spiritual path, practise and expansion.  Take time to reflect upon this area of your life and ask yourself the following the questions:  can you energise your spiritual life through learning something new?  Do you listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you, especially in this area?  Do you express your spirituality through your daily actions?  The answers to these questions will enable you to take positive action and strengthen the aspect of the spiritual in your daily life, thereby benefitting you and those around you.  It’s a good idea to take time for meditation today so that you are better able to receive guidance and insights in the areas mentioned above.

 

Thursday September 3rd we experience a gentle, flowing energy.  The energy supporting spiritual growth and awareness continues from yesterday, so you can continue any work in this area that you have been doing.  You may also experience the feeling of being unfocused today.  If this is the case, take time for a grounding exercise or meditation.  You can read my article on techniques for grounding here:  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/  or try my free, guided meditation for grounding here:  http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/

 

Friday September 4th is a high-energy day with the focus on spiritual practises and learning, healing and health in general.  As with the past two days, take time to reflect upon your spiritual path and practise and what you can do to strengthen this area.  It’s also a great idea to set aside time for a full Reiki self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, as much can be healed and released today.

 

Saturday September 5th is a very high-energy day.  According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (5+9+2+0+1+5= 22).  “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal 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.

 

Sunday September 6th we finish the week with a high-energy day when we have Venus turning “direct” after being retrograde since July 25th.  This means that it’s now “full steam ahead” in the areas of relationships, abundance and creative expression… areas which you may have spent time reflecting on since during the retrograde period.  Whatever strategies you may have been working on over the past few weeks are now ready to be put into action, but you should act quickly because the time of Mercury retrograde is coming up (starting this month on the 17th and lasting for three weeks), which will mark a period of time when it’s better to make plans and strategies rather than embarking on new projects.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful, enriching week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, August 24th – 30th 2015

Hello Everyone,

This week we have a mix of some energetically “quiet” days and some outstanding high-energy days, namely a “Master 22” vibration day, the last “Triple 8” energy day until 2024 and a “Super” Full Moon in Pisces. Make good use of the energy and stay grounded, otherwise you may find yourself feeling restless, agitated or very unfocused. With this in mind, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Pisces "Super" Full Moon

Pisces “Super” Full Moon

Monday August 24th we start the week with a VERY high-energy day. 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+4+8+2+0+1+5= 22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal 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.

 

Tuesday August 25th the energy will be low-key. Rather than starting any new projects day, it’s a good idea to continue working on current projects and goals, especially ones that you worked on yesterday. Tomorrow brings some great energetic opportunities, so save all of the action for then.

 

 

Wednesday August 26th we experience our second VERY high-energy day of the week, with lots potential and a rare energetic opportunity to heal and manifest. Today’s energy is active and strongly supports the areas of taking the lead and staying focused and organised in accomplishing tasks and goals. You can also try focusing some energy in the area of “service to others”. Whatever you do, ensure that you make use of the energy, otherwise it is likely that you will feel agitated, restless or “all over the place”. Today’s date is a rare combination of three “8s”; the date of 2+6 (8), the month of August (8) plus the year 2+0+1+5 (8). We won’t experience another “triple 8” until the year 2024! In numerology, “8” is all about abundance, prosperity, harmony and power. When you double and even triple this number, the power increases. “3” represents manifesting an idea/goal/concept physically, so you can see how powerful this energy is considered to be.

Today is wonderful for working on manifesting your goals and taking action to increase the flow of abundance and prosperity in your life. Make sure you set aside time to visualise each of your goals in their completed forms, using as many of your senses as possible. Truly see, feel and intend that each goal is now attained. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s a great day to work with your Reiki affirmations.

 

Thursday August 27th is a high-energy day with the emphasis on personal and creative expression, good communication. The intuition will also be very strong, so make sure you set aside time for meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and inspiration. Listen to your “gut instinct” and express yourself clearly and from the heart. The strong energy today has a very light and social side to it, so rather than only focusing on work you should try to make time to enjoy yourself with friends and loved ones.

 

Friday August 28th the energy will be gentle and flowing. Don’t try to accomplish too much today, just “go with the flow” as much as possible and continue to work on current projects and goals. Allow yourself to rest a bit in order to prepare for tomorrow’s very strong energy and “Super” Full Moon. Saturday August 29th is a high-energy day when we experience a “Super” Full Moon in Pisces. The reason that this is a “Super” Moon is because today the Moon is at its closest to the Earth all month, so the Moon will look larger than usual in the night sky. It is also said that the closer distance results in a stronger energetic influence of the Moon, as well as heightened intuition and emotional energy.

A Pisces Full Moon is all about spiritual practises, expressing your inner-self, relaxation, healing and service to others. There may be a feeling of wanting to experience solitude and “go within”. You can make good use of the energy today by setting aside time for a full healing session, doing meditation and other spiritual practises, and expressing yourself with truth and compassion. Be careful of over-indulging and expressing yourself from the ego.

Doing a Full Moon meditation is a great way of connecting with the energy. 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:

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.

If the weather permits, 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.

 

Sunday August 30th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than rushing around, it’s a good idea to take it easy and relax as much as possible. Enjoy this light, bright ending to the week!

 

Wishing all of you a productive, positive and powerful week ahead.

Many Blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Aug 17th – 23rd

Hello Everyone,

I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and used the time to relax, enjoy and recharge, because we have lots of strong energy coming up this week to keep us busy!  Monday is a very significant day for manifesting abundance and prosperity and taking action, and this will continue for the first part of the week.  We will also have great opportunities for healing!  As the energy will be very strong for most of the week, remember to stay grounded, focused and make sure you get enough rest.  Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

lion

 

Monday August 17th we begin the week with a VERY high-energy day with lots potential and a rare energetic opportunity to heal and manifest (“Lion’s Gate” numerology, detailed below)but be especially aware of using the energy well otherwise it’s likely you’ll feel agitated or “all over the place”.  Today’s energy is active and strongly supports the areas of taking the lead and accomplishing tasks and goals, but rather than being forceful, it will be more productive to take a strategic and not-so-obvious approach.  The strong energy of today is also very supportive of healing, so set aside time for a full Reiki (or other healing energy) self-treatment, or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner as much can be healed and released today.  You can also try focusing some energy in the area of “service to others”.  There is great potential to receive inspiration today, too, but you must exercise self-discipline and stay focused so that you can truly make the most of today’s energy!

Now, about the “Lion’s Gate”:  Today’s date is a rare combination of three “8s”; the date of 1+7 (8), the month of August (8) plus the year 2+0+1+5 (8).  In numerology, “8” is all about abundance, prosperity, harmony and power.  When you double and even triple this number, the power increases.  “3” represents manifesting an idea/goal/concept physically, so you can see how powerful this energy is considered to be.  As we are still currently in the sign of Leo, this special energetic event is referred to as the “Lion’s Gate”.  Today is absolutely wonderful for working on manifesting your goals and taking action to increase the flow of abundance and prosperity in your life.  Make sure you set aside time to visualise each of your goals in their completed forms, using as many of your senses as possible.  Truly see, feel and intend that each goal is now attained.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s a great day to work with your Reiki affirmations.

 

Tuesday August 18th is a high-energy day when we will still be experiencing some of yesterday’s energy, but today will have more of a “Yin” (feminine energy) aspect to it.  So continue to take action with what you were working on yesterday, but try to express more of the “Yin”.  This includes being more strategic, receptive and diplomatic.  Don’t be afraid to express your individuality and creativity!

 

Wednesday August 19th we experience our third high-energy day in a row.  Continue taking action with projects and goals (especially ones you have been focusing on since Monday) and make the most of this strong energy that is supporting the areas of finance, self-expression and relationships.  As with the past couple of days, set aside time to work on manifesting your goals by sitting quietly and visualising each of your goals in their completed forms.  Another possibility with the strong energy that we’ve had over the past three days is that you may be feeling especially sensitive.  This is a good thing in the right circumstances, but you be feeling emotionally vulnerable today.  If this is the case for you, pay attention to what is being triggered and how, and what you can do to heal/release the issue.  During a time of strong energy, remember that it is even more important than usual to stay grounded.  In this way, you’ll be able to ride the wave of high-energy rather than having it overwhelm you.  Try starting the day with a grounding exercise:  Reiki applied to the first chakra, legs and feet, or you can practise yoga, Tai Chi or even take a brisk walk outdoors.  You can also practise a Grounding meditation any time in order to feel more balanced.  You are welcome to try my quick guided meditation for Grounding here:  http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/

 

Thursday August 20th is another high-energy day, but this one will have a very different feel to it compared with the past three days.  Today, the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of healing, especially healing and releasing very old wounds and emotional issues (especially those from childhood).  As much can be healed and released today, I strongly recommend setting aside time for a full Reiki (or other healing energy) self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner.  It is also helpful to take time to reflect upon your past…what memories cause you sadness, pain, discomfort, disappointment etc.?  When an issue is completely healed, thinking about it does not cause any sadness or other such emotions.  Rather, one is able to calmly “observe”.  When a memory causes the aforementioned reactions, it is a clear indication that further healing work needs to be done.  The intuition will be stronger than usual today, so allow it to guide you in how you can best heal any old issues and wounds, as well as provide with you with flashes of inspiration in moving forward in the best possible way.

 

Friday August 21st today the energy will be much more subdued, compared with what we have experienced over the week.   If you’re feeling drained or down, tap into your sense of self-discipline:  focus and start the day with a grounding exercise (as mentioned above for Wednesday).  Rather than starting new projects today, focus on ones that you are currently working on.  It can also be helpful to take a step back and analyse your situation:  are there any important details that you may be overlooking?

 

Saturday August 22nd we will have some stronger energy flowing, especially in the areas of relationships and creativity.  However, be aware that the area of relationships (of all types) can be challenging today.  Be prepared for old issues to re-surface, so if these come up you can deal with them in a positive and healing way.  Perhaps it’s time for some changes!  Be receptive, express yourself directly and from the heart and find ways to make your relationships more solid.  Starting the day with a heart chakra meditation can assist greatly with this!  You can try any type that you prefer, or you can try my guided meditation for the Heart chakra here:  http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/  If you are a Reiki practitioner, this meditation is even more effective if you place the hands over the heart chakra.

 

Sunday August 23rd we finish the week with some lovely energy that is all about creating balance in your life.  What can you do to create a better sense of balance?  Reflect on the areas of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being…  What changes can you make in order to make these areas more balanced and healthy?  What can you let go of?  What you can bring in?  What habits need to be changed?  The answers to these questions will help you move in a positive direction towards better health and balance on all levels.

 

Wishing all of you a powerful, productive and positive week ahead!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

Hello Everyone,

We have some interesting energy this week.  The first part of the week favours healing, strong intuition and change, while the second part is filled with some very strong energy thanks to the New Moon in Leo and a “22” Master Vibration day.  All in all, we have a busy, productive and enjoyable week to look forward to!  So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect:

Leo New M

Monday August 10th we start the week with a day of quiet, “low-key” energy.  Rather than trying to accomplish lots of tasks today, it’s a good idea to just go with the flow as much as possible.  We have some high-energy days coming up later this week, so starting new projects is best left until then.

 

Tuesday August 11th the energy will be flowing strongly in the areas of healing as well as assisting those who are in need.  As much can be achieved today in terms of healing, make sure you set aside time for a full Reiki (or other energy healing) self-treatment, or arrange to receive a treatment from a Reiki practitioner.  It’s a great day for releasing emotional trauma, energy blockages etc., so make the most of it!  You can also take time to reflect upon the area of service:  is there any volunteer work that you can take part in?  In what way can you use your talents and strengths to benefit others?  Think about this and then take action!

 

Wednesday August 12th just as yesterday, the energy will continue to strongly support the areas of healing and service to others.  Again, set aside time for a full healing session and take action in the area of service.  The intuition will be stronger than usual today, so ideally you should start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes) so that you are better able to receive guidance throughout the day.  It’s also a great day for making decisions (both big and small), but if you have moments of being unsure today, allow yourself to be guided by your intuition.  Listen to your “gut instinct”.  If something doesn’t feel right, pay attention to this!  On the other hand, if you focus on an option and it feels good, your intuition is really telling you something.

 

Thursday August 13th the intuition will continue being stronger than usual and the energy will be flowing strongly in the areas of healing, creativity and change.  As many old emotional traumas can be released today, make sure to set aside time for a full Reiki (or other healing energy) self-treatment or arrange to receive a treatment from a Reiki healer.  It’s also a good idea to start the idea with meditation so that you are more receptive to guidance, inspiration and intuitive flashes throughout the day.  This will also assist greatly with any areas of creative expression!  It’s also a great day to reflect upon different areas of your life (career, relationships, personal well-being etc.).  If any areas are “stuck” or stagnant, it’s time to reassess the situation:  what needs to be worked on further?  What changes need to be made?  Which old patterns or habits need to be released?  The answers to these questions will enable you to create a state of transformation and growth.  As tomorrow will be a very high-energy day, you may also notice the energy increasing as the day goes on.

 

Friday August 13th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Leo.  The time of any New Moon is one of new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Leo emphasises the areas of leadership, physical enjoyment, bold self-expression and action.  There is also an aspect of improving/increasing one’s finances.  If you’ve been waiting for the ideal time to start a new project, today is an excellent day!  You should also set aside time to work on manifesting your goals through visualisation:  sitting quietly, visualise each of your goals in their completed forms, using as many of the senses as possible.  If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, you can work on your Reiki affirmations.  Whatever you choose to do, you should be active today otherwise this strong energy can cause you to feel agitated or restless.  The energy of Leo is so bright and powerful, so don’t be shy today… let your light shine!

In order to make the most of the energy of today, you can do your own meditation, choose to meditate on the areas mentioned above, 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 (you can also use other techniques, such as using a photo). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

 

Saturday August 15th we have another VERY high-energy day.  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+5+8+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.

In addition, the energy will also be strongly flowing in the areas of transformation, relationships, abundance and prosperity.  If you want to create positive changes in these areas, today is a great day to start!

 

Sunday August 16th we finish the week with a day of light, bright energy.  It’s a good day to be active, ideally doing things that you enjoy!  Outdoor activities, gatherings with friends and other enjoyable pursuits are the best way to make use of the energy today.  What a lovely way to end the week!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week of healing, change and productivity!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, August 3rd – 9th 2015

Hello Everyone,

We have a week of bright, strong energy with potential for growth and transformation, but the key to this is balance.  When areas of our lives are not in balance, the potential for growth and transformation is stifled.  Take moments this week to reflect upon areas of your life that are positive, flowing and in balance and what makes them so, and then see how you can apply this to any other areas of your life that are either stagnating or not progressing well.  In this way, you achieve a state of balance and then positive changes occur.  So let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week and how to make the most of it:

balance

 

Monday August 3rd we start the week with a high-energy day and the need to stay focused on clear in order to make the best use of this energy, otherwise you may feel very indecisive today.  There is great potential for personal growth and transformation, but you should try to maintain self-discipline and create a clear strategy to follow in order to fully benefit from this energy.  If you have already been following a clear plan, perhaps it’s time to take a step back, be flexible and see if any changes need to be made.  Spiritual practises are also highlighted today, so try to start the day with your favourite practise, or try something new!

 

Tuesday August 4th we have another high-energy day, but this energy is rather special:  expect very positive energy and even some “good luck” to flow your way!  It’s a day of abundance, creativity and prosperity and you can make the most of it by being active in the following ways:  continue activities which improve finances (reflect upon this and take action), take opportunities for social interaction and networking, take time to express your creativity and set aside at least 10-15 minutes to work on manifesting your goals.  Sit quietly, imagining each of your goals in their completed forms.  Use as many of your senses as possible, intend and truly FEEL that each of your goals is achieved.  For Reiki 2 (and above) practitioners, this is an ideal to work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Wednesday August 5th the energy will be strong, but rather a “mixed bag”.  On one hand, the energy will be very supportive in terms of improving committed relationships.  This area can be strengthened through opening up to each other and sharing from the heart and connecting on all levels.  On the other hand, the energy of today pushes us to create a better sense of balance in all other areas:  limiting or cutting off interaction with people who are draining and “drag you down”, setting stricter boundaries regarding spending and being more self-disciplined.  This leads to a greater sense of well-being down the road, but can very challenging for many.

 

Thursday August 7th is a high-energy day with the focus on personal transformation, creative self-expression and taking action in your career.  Tap into your sense of self-discipline and make the necessary changes that will further your process of transformation (breaking unhealthy habits, stopping patterns, creating boundaries with draining/unhelpful people etc.).  This sense of self-discipline will also help you in furthering your career and your path of leadership… through these changes you become an inspiration to others!  Regarding creative self-expression, don’t hide your gifts from others:  be loud and proud!

 

Friday August 7th the energy will be flowing strongly in the area of the intellect, so expect lots of ideas and inspiration.  However, be very aware of expressing these ideas.  In other words, keep your mouth shut unless absolutely necessary!   Share your ideas only with those whom you trust and can be of assistance.  You should also try to listen to the ideas of others, as the inspiration will be flowing for all of us.

 

Saturday August 8th is a day of strong, active “Yang” (male) energy. It’s a day to take action, to take the lead and be an example to others.  If you’ve been waiting for a day to really go for it, this is the day!  However, make sure that in all of the activity you don’t rush foolishly into anything.  Follow your “gut instincts” and take action accordingly.

 

Sunday August 9th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy.  Rather than trying to get a lot done, it’s a good idea to just take it easy and “go with the flow”.  We’ve had lots of activity over the past week, so today you should aim to relax and recharge.

 

Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead and remember to stay balanced and focused!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal
