Weekly Forecast, March 28th – April 3rd 2016

Hello Everyone,

This week we have strong energy during the first part of the week and gentle energy during the latter part.  If you want to take action and get things done, it’s best to do this when the energy is strong.  It’s a rather “mixed” week, with opportunities to heal relationship issues, strong intuition to help with problem-solving, communicate clearly and also recharge your batteries.   So let’s take a detailed look at what’s coming up:

relax

Monday March 28th we begin the week with a big push of bright energy.  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+8+3+2+0+1+6= 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 March 29th the energy today will be primarily focused in the areas of thinking and communication.  It’s a good day for problem-solving, thinking of new ideas and other intellectual pursuits as well as sharing these ideas with others.  However, as the energy today can also cause some to feel unbalanced or un-grounded, be aware of staying centred and expressing yourself clearly.  Ideally, try starting the day with a grounding exercise.  Even taking a short walk in a park, breathing deeply and evenly while you go, is an effective way to “ground” quickly.

 

Wednesday March 30th we have a high-energy day and the focus on relationships, as well as manifesting that which serves your higher purpose.  Take time to reflect upon what you would like to create or attract into your life that will enable you to live your life more fully and in harmony with your higher purpose.  Then sit quietly and visualise the end result of what you want to manifest, using as many of your senses as possible.  Regarding relationships, old and unresolved issues may be pushed to the surface today.  If this is the case, it’s time to deal with these issues in a healthy, balanced manner.  Expressing yourself clearly and from the heart can help in this process, but make sure that you speak with sensitivity and compassion.

 

Thursday March 31st we finish the month with plenty of energy flowing in the area of the intuition, making it stronger than usual today.  Pay attention to any signs or “flashes” of intuition and trust your gut-instinct.  If you want to do some problem-solving, take a quiet moment to reflect upon the issue(s) and then be still.  You may be surprised at how you can receive inspiration!

 

Friday April 1st we begin the month of April with energy that supports us in being patient, cultivating our sense of “inner quiet” and working through any issues that may have come up this week.  When we’re in this state of inner-peace, we are better able to recognise good opportunities that may arise unexpectedly today (and over the weekend) and then pursue them.

 

Saturday April 2nd we have a day of gentle, flowing energy.  It’s a good day to take things easy or catch up with any tasks that need seeing to, rather than starting new projects.  In fact, this entire weekend the energy will be rather gentle, so enjoy this “down time” and allow yourself to relax as much as possible.

 

Sunday April 3rd we finish the week with a second day of gentle energy. Today should be all about relaxing and recharging yourself for the week ahead.  Ideally, spend time in nature doing whatever activity energises and relaxes you.

 

Wishing all of you a positive week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, March 21st – 27th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have some great energy coming up this week with opportunities for transformation, healing, productivity and lots of activity.  The highlights include the Libra Full Moon plus a lunar eclipse on Wednesday, Saturn turning retrograde on Friday and then lots of magical energy on Saturday.  A lot to look forward to, but remember to USE the energy otherwise you may feel frustrated, short-tempered or “all over the place”.  With all of the strong energy, make sure you ground yourself regularly.  You can read my article about grounding with plenty of tips,  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/   So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Lunar Eclipse

Monday March 21st we begin the week with a high-energy day, still feeling the effects of yesterday’s Spring Equinox.  It’s a good day to keep busy and take action, especially in learning new things.  The intuition is especially strong today, so there is great potential for inspiration and receiving guidance.  It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to tap into intuition throughout the day.  Pay attention to your “gut instinct”, particularly in dealing with others.

 

Tuesday March 22nd the energy will be gentle and flowing, although you may notice the energy increase as the day goes on and we approach the VERY high-energy day of tomorrow.  Rather than starting new projects, today is better-suited to working on existing ones.  Save the action for tomorrow!

 

Wednesday March 23rd is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the combination of the Full Moon in Libra plus a lunar eclipse (please note that this eclipse is “penumbral”, so it there won’t be much to see but the energy will be felt nonetheless).  Although this combination isn’t nearly as intense as the recent solar eclipse/New Moon, the lunar eclipse will greatly boost the energetic potential of the Full Moon.  Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect upon the past month and “take stock” of what you have accomplished and what you would still like to achieve.  The influence of Libra places the emphasis on relationships, creative expression and your financial situation.

Think about these areas and what needs to be changed and/or released in order to move forward.  There is great potential for productivity today, so make good use of the energy and create a clear strategy for the next six months.  Part of this strategy is being aware of BALANCE:  sure, there are times when we need to focus more of energy on a particular area of life, but this should not be the norm.  Create a plan that will allow you to distribute your energy as equally as possible in the different areas of your life (work, relationships, personal, emotional, spiritual practise etc.).

If you’d like to check the exact time of the eclipse where you live, you can use the following link: www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2016-march-23

You can also try a Full Moon meditation in order to more fully connect with the energy. 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.  If you prefer, you can also use one of the other methods of sending Reiki, such as using a photograph.

 

Thursday March 24th there will be a lot of energy, with some of it focused in the intellectual area but most of it focused in the area of healing.  The strong energy we experienced yesterday can have the effect of pushing old emotions to the surface, especially feelings of sadness and loss.  If this is the case for you, it’s important to release and heal these emotions.  Allow yourself the time and space to fully express these rather than pushing them back down (where they can later become energy blockages or even more serious emotional/physical issues).  Healing and release is very freeing and allows the space for new, fresh energy to come in!  A healing session is very beneficial today in healing and releasing these old emotions, as is meditation and breath-work whilst contemplating that which needs to be healed.

 

Friday March 25th is a high-energy day when we have Saturn turning retrograde until mid-August.  The period of Saturn retrograde is one in which to reflect upon the themes of responsibility, self-discipline, maturity and managing one’s time well.  It is essential to identify any problems or weaknesses in these areas and then work on correcting them, otherwise progress may be very slow or difficult.

Saturn retrograde is also the time in which to reassess commitments and current projects.  Have you taken on too many responsibilities?  If so, it’s time to say “NO!”.  Focus your energy on current responsibilities and deal with what currently needs to be dealt with.  If you’re frustrated, it’s time to either reorganise or renegotiate.  Now is the time for setting clear personal boundaries, getting rid of frustrations and blockages and thereby living a better life!

 

Saturday March 26th we begin the weekend with a VERY high-energy day and some fantastic potential for empowering the areas of action and transformation.  A lot of areas can receive a huge boost today:  creative expression, spiritual practises, finances, relationships, travel and adventure.  A very magical day, indeed!  Make the most of this energy by actively using it in any of these areas, otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or “all over the place”.  Ideally, try to do an activity outdoors in nature (this is also grounding) and also with others.  It’s not a day to be solitary and you’ll find that your activities will be enhanced by sharing them with others.

 

Sunday March 27th we finish the week with a day of gentle, flowing energy.  After all of the strong energy we’ve experienced this week, welcome the opportunity to just take it easy today.  Don’t try to plan too many activities or get a lot done.  Rather, “go with the flow” as much as possible and allow yourself to relax and recharge.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week of transformation and empowerment!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, March 14th – 20th 2016

Hello Everyone,

I hope that all of you used and enjoyed the fantastic energy last week!  For some, it was too intense at times, but many people I have spoken with have told me that it was a very busy, yet productive week.  This week we have some high-energy days balanced with some “quiet” days, plus a “Master 22 Vibration” energy day which we haven’t experienced for quite some time!  So let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect:

Energy Flow

Monday March 14th we begin the week with a high-energy day with lots of energy flowing in the areas of creative expression, spiritual practises and relationships.  You can get a lot of direction and guidance in these areas by listening to your intuition, which is especially strong today.  If something “feels right”, it is definitely worth investigating or pursuing!  Conversely, if something doesn’t feel right, it’s time to consider changing direction.  One word of caution:  be aware of how you communicate within relationships today, as there are those who will be feeling overly-sensitive in this area today.  In order to encourage growth and avoid conflict, focus on communicating with love and compassion from the heart.

 

Tuesday March 15th is a high-energy day with the focus on spiritual practises, creativity and research activities.  Use this energy to your advantage by engaging in activities related to these areas or continue with any activities that you may have practised yesterday.

 

Wednesday March 16th is all about being organised and focused.  Take time today to reflect upon the projects you have started or have been working on this month.  How much progress have you made?  What still needs to be completed?  There is great potential for mental clarity today, so focus on finishing projects and avoid starting anything new until these have been completed.  If it helps, make a checklist so that you can better organise your time and the tasks that need to be accomplished.  In this way, you’ll use the energy in a focused manner.

 

Thursday March 17th the energy will be gentle and flowing, with good opportunities to strengthen close relationships and connect with new people.  Rather than just focusing on work today, make it a point to spend time with those you love.  Or perhaps you may feel like socialising a bit more?  Listen to your inner-self and allow it to guide you in this area.

 

Friday March 18th the energy will be much like yesterday’s, so don’t push yourself to accomplish many tasks.  It isn’t the ideal day to start new projects, so instead focus on current ones.  The emphasis on relationships that we experienced yesterday continues today, so you’ll find it very enjoyable spending time with those you love.

 

Saturday March 19th 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 (1+9+3+2+0+1+6= 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 March 20th we finish the week with a day of relaxed, flowing energy.  It’s a great day to relax and recharge, so instead of staying at home doing work you should try to enjoy some activities outdoors.  If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, set aside time for a full self-treatment.  Or perhaps you may enjoy some yoga, tai chi or other energy practise.  Whatever you decide to do today, it should be enjoyable and stress-free!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead.

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, March 7th – 13th 2016 (Solar Eclipse Special!)

Hello Everyone,

To say that there is lots of strong energy this week would be a massive understatement!  Hold on to your hats because we are set to experience an incredible week ahead, with the highlight being the most powerful eclipse of the YEAR (super-energised by coinciding with the Super New Moon).  There will be a lot going on, but the main themes are healing, transformation, inspiration and manifesting your goals through practises such as Reiki Affirmations and the Law of Attraction.  It is incredibly important to make use of the intense energy this week, otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated, frustrated or “all over the place”.  You’ll find that a grounding exercise or meditation will assist you in staying focused and balanced.  You can read my article on grounding techniques here: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/ and my free, guided meditation for grounding here:  https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding   And now here are details of what we can look forward to this week:

Solar Eclipse

Solar Eclipse

 

Monday March 7th we begin the week with a high-energy day and plenty of energy flowing in the areas of creative inspiration, spiritual practises and increasing abundance/prosperity.  However, in order to make good use of the energy it is very important to stay focused and exercise your sense of self-discipline.  Furthermore, you may feel like taking on lots of tasks today but be careful not to overload yourself.  If you have a spiritual practise, you will get a lot more out of it today than usual, so try to start the day with whatever your preferred practise may be.  It’s also a great day for any work with the Law of Attraction or other exercises for manifesting (such as working with Reiki affirmations, for Reiki 2 practitioners).  Take time to sit quietly, visualising each of your goals in their completed forms.  Use as many of your senses as possible, truly intend and feel that each goal is now accomplished.

 

Tuesday March 8th is a very high-energy day, especially if you live in a part of the world where the solar eclipse will be occurring (here in Hong Kong, we experience the eclipse tomorrow).  If you will experience the eclipse today, please read tomorrow’s forecast for details.  You can find information on when the eclipse will occur in your area by checking the following link: http://earthsky.org/?p=230175  Now let’s look at what we can expect here today, bearing in mind that the focus on the following areas will continue tomorrow but even more intensely.  The strong energy of today is focused in the areas of healing (especially old issues and wounds), transformation (in a big way!) and exercises to increase abundance and prosperity. You can make good use of the energy today and tomorrow by doing the following:

Take time for a full self-healing session today (or arrange to have a treatment from a practitioner) as much can be healed and released today.  If you find yourself experiencing emotional “triggers”, pay attention to what the root cause is as these “triggers” are a clear indication of what still needs to be healed and released.  Continue any Law of Attraction work (or other exercises for manifesting) as mentioned in yesterday’s forecast and for Reiki 2 (or above) practitioners make sure you take time to work on your Reiki affirmations.

The intuition will be especially strong today and tomorrow, so listen to your “gut instinct” and follow those flashes of intuition!  This is especially helpful in the process of personal transformation.  This process of transformation is all about letting go of that which no longer serves your higher purpose (habits, relationships, routines etc.), being your true self and doing more to assist others by using your own special talents and gifts.

 

Wednesday March 9th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the most energetically powerful solar eclipse of the year, in combination with the Super New Moon in Pisces.  As today coincides with the time of the Moon’s closest approach to the Earth all month, this is considered to be a Super Moon.  This means that the energetic influences of the Pisces New Moon are greatly amplified.  A New Moon is always a potent time for new beginnings, so this combination of Super New Moon plus the Solar Eclipse provides us with a rare and powerful opportunity for change and growth.  In fact, it is said that the areas which are energised at this time will continue to be strong for between six months to one year!

This New Moon is in Pisces places emphasis on new beginnings, creative inspiration, developing talents and healing/clearing old emotional issues.  The intuition will also be especially strong, so pay attention to it!  It is also important to be very clear about your goals and where you want to focus your energy, otherwise the energy will be wasted on day-dreaming and aimlessness. Be open to making changes along the way that will help you in achieving your goals.  This is the time to try something new and to dream big… and to stay focused and self-disciplined.  Don’t waste this opportunity!  The goals and intentions that you set today will set you on the path of discovery, personal growth and success, so make the most of it!

If you like, you can further connect with today’s energy 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/Eclipse 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 (or eclipse, or both!). If you have created clear goals and/or intentions, you can also state these either out loud or silently to yourself.  Imagine that with every in-breath, your up-turned hands draw in a bright, silvery light from the Moon. If you are combining this with an eclipse meditation, you can imagine a bright, white light instead.  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 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 and use your distant Reiki techniques to send Reiki to the New Moon and/or Sun. Sit quietly and comfortably, prepare your hands for sending Reiki, and draw your 3 Reiki symbols over the Moon/Sun. You would then use the Reiki 2 technique of ‘Beaming’, with the hands ‘aimed’ at the Moon/Sun. Of course, you could also use a photograph or other method that suits you.  In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar/solar energies.

 

Thursday March 10th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s energy.  There is lots of great energy flowing today in the areas of creativity, relationships and increasing the flow of prosperity in your life.  If you work with the Law of Attraction or use Reiki affirmations, make sure you set aside time to work on any prosperity/abundance goals.  Healing is also strongly supported today, so try to take time for a full self-treatment (or arrange to receive a treatment from a healing practitioner).  All of the strong energy we have experienced this week may be causing old emotional wounds to be pushed to the surface.  If you find that this is the case for you, it’s time to focus on healing.

 

Friday March 11th we have a very high-energy day with plenty of energy flowing in the areas of creativity, spiritual practises and communication.  You can get a lot of direction and guidance in these areas by listening to your intuition, which is very strong this week.  If something “feels right”, it is definitely worth investigating or pursuing!  Conversely, if something doesn’t feel right, it’s time to consider changing direction.

 

Saturday March 12th is a high-energy day that’s all about creativity, improving close relationships, improving finances and healing.  Regarding finances, you should already have clear goals in place, but you can help to manifest money in your life through practises such as Reiki affirmations or Law of Attraction exercises.  Make sure to do these today!  Regarding healing, you can continue to work on healing/releasing old emotional wounds and issues.  After so many days of strong energy, don’t be surprised to find these old issues pushed to the surface.  Rather than trying to suppress them (or express them through frustration, anger etc.), allow yourself to work through them.  Acknowledge them and the lessons that you have learned through them.  If you have difficulty doing this alone, it is strongly recommended that you work together with a healer in order to fully heal and release.

 

Sunday March 13th we finish this incredible week with a high-energy day.  The energy today will be very similar to what it was yesterday, so please refer to the Saturday forecast (above) for information on how to make the most of today’s energy.

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal
