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:
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!
