Weekly Forecast, June 27th – July 3rd 2016

Hello Everyone,

After the very intense energy we experienced last week, this week will be much “calmer” in comparison.  The highlights of the week include Mars turning “direct” after being retrograde since April, plus some wonderful opportunities for healing, strengthening relationships and increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance.  What a wonderful way to finish the month of June and welcome the new month of July!   So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Mars Direct

Monday June 27th we begin the week with a high-energy day that is all about healing, deepening/strengthening relationships, creative expression and increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity.  So there is plenty of energy, but you need to consciously use it in order to reap the benefits.  With regards to healing, the focus is on healing/releasing old “hurts”.  Take time for a full healing session (either self-treatment or receiving a treatment from a practitioner) or sit quietly and reflect upon whatever it is you would like to heal.  Breathe deeply and evenly, with every out-breath intend that you are releasing any old wounds.  If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, placing the hands over the area of the body where you perceive the “wound” to be will greatly assist this process.  Realise that our old issues need to be healed and released before we are able to move forward in life with lightness and ease.

In working on deepening/strengthening significant relationships, take part in meaningful activities where you can connect more deeply with one another.  You can even try meditating together:  breathe deeply and evenly while you sit opposite one another, gazing into each other’s eyes.  This can be very uncomfortable at first for some, but give it a try (even just for a few minutes).  You’ll find that you’ll start connecting on a much deeper, soul level.

In working with your creativity, there is great potential for inspiration, so open up and let your creative expression flow.  Don’t judge yourself, really let go and enjoy!

If you’d like to focus the energy on increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in this area 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.  It’s a great day for any Law of Attraction work, and if you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Tuesday June 28th the energy will be focused on making small changes/adjustments that will allow you to more fully express your true-self in all areas of your life.  Take time to reflect upon where and how you would like to be able to do this, and then take the first steps to make this happen.

 

Wednesday June 29th is a high-energy day when we have Mars turning “direct” after being retrograde since April 17th.  This means that it is now well-aspected to take action in the following areas that you may have been contemplating during the time of Mars retrograde:  starting a new business, focusing your energy carefully rather than acting on impulse, healing or dealing with anger issues and also asserting yourself in a positive, clear and calm manner.

 

Thursday June 30th is a high-energy day when we have some of Monday’s themes, but greatly amplified:  relationships, creativity and increasing abundance and prosperity.  I will repeat the relevant aspects from Monday’s forecast here:

In working on deepening/strengthening significant relationships, take part in meaningful activities where you can connect more deeply with one another.  You can even try meditating together:  breathe deeply and evenly while you sit opposite one another, gazing into each other’s eyes.  This can be very uncomfortable at first for some, but give it a try (even just for a few minutes).  You’ll find that you’ll start connecting on a much deeper, soul level.

In working with your creativity, there is great potential for inspiration, so open up and let your creative expression flow.  Don’t judge yourself, really let go and enjoy!

If you’d like to focus the energy on increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in this area 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.  It’s a great day for any Law of Attraction work, and if you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.

 

Friday July 1st we start the month with some light, bright beautiful energy!  Relationships are strengthened through sharing enjoyable activities, spending time in nature is well-aspected, creative energy will be flowing strongly…just an all-around great day for enjoying the moment!

 

Saturday July 2nd we start the weekend with a continuation of the positive, light and bright energy that started yesterday.  In fact, this energy will continue throughout the weekend, so you can choose to just “go with the flow” and enjoy the energy…or you may choose to actively use it by strengthening your significant relationships, expressing your creative side or through connecting with nature by taking part in outdoor activities.

 

Sunday July 3rd we enjoy the third day of wonderfully light and positive energy!  Remember that if you just stay at home doing nothing, you won’t feel much of this energy at all.  So, get moving and make the most of this energy!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

 

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast June 20th – 26th 2016

Hello Everyone,
What an incredible week we have ahead! Here in Hong Kong we get two VERY high-energy days in a row to start the week: The Full Moon on Monday and the Summer Solstice on Tuesday. For other countries, please check the following link for exact dates and times of these events in your area: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20160620T2234&msg=June%20Solstice%202016 We also experience a day of “Master Energy” later in the week as well as other days of high-energy. With every day this week being filled with either strong or very strong energy, it is very important to stay grounded and focused and take action in the areas mentioned in detail in the forecast below. Otherwise, you will likely find yourself feeling agitated, “blocked” or “all over the place”. Staying grounded will assist you greatly in making the most of the fantastic energy this week. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, take time every morning to apply energy to the first chakra, legs and soles of feet. Tai Chi and Qigong are also very effective grounding practises. For more information on grounding techniques that everyone can practise, as well as the link to my free, guided meditation for energising and grounding, please read the article which I have written on grounding: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/
Summer Solstice2  Full Moon Sagittarius2
Monday June 20th the week begins with a day of VERY high-energy as we experience the Full Moon in Sagittarius. The time of any Full Moon is one in which it is good to reflect upon what we have accomplished since the previous Full Moon and what changes or adjustments we can make in order to walk more fully upon our chosen paths. The influence of Sagittarius places additional emphasis on the areas of philosophy, life purpose, enthusiasm, joy, learning and teaching.
Are there important lessons that you need to learn or teach (especially in the areas of philosophy, spirituality and life-path)? Are you experiencing lots of enthusiasm and joy in your life? Are you open to learning and experiencing new things? The answers to these questions can assist you in making the necessary changes/adjustments that will enrich these areas of your life. To more fully connect with the energy today, it’s a good idea to practise a Full Moon meditation. You can do your own or choose to meditate on the points mentioned above or all you have to be grateful for in your life. You can also 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 (or use any other method of sending Reiki that you prefer, such as using a photo). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies. It’s also a great idea to 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.
Furthermore, bear in mind that there will be an additional “boost” of energy in releasing old attachments and habits (especially that which is uncomfortable to face!). Healing is also strongly supported, so try to take time for a full energy-healing session (Reiki or other healing energy), as much can be released and healed today.
Additionally, there are wonderful opportunities to bring balance to significant relationships (romantic or otherwise). It’s time for open communication from the heart, on both sides, in order to strengthen relationships. Are you fulfilled in your relationships? Can you express yourself openly and without fear of judgement? Do your support each other and take joy in one another’s success and strengths? The answers to these questions can assist both parties in strengthening and enriching the relationship.
Tuesday June 21st is a VERY high-energy when we experience the Summer Solstice! Please note that the energy and themes of this day will continue over the next month. These themes include working with the deeper levels of consciousness, personal and financial security, home, nurturing and your inner circle (family, close friends etc). By consciously working with this energy, you will be better able to create a state of stability and balance in the different areas of your life mentioned above. You can do this by creating positive affirmations which you can repeat every day (while focusing on them) and also by visualising each of your goals in their completed forms and using as many of your senses as possible.
There are various opinions in the spiritual world as to why the Summer Solstice is so energetically significant. However, all agree that the Solstice present us with a unique opportunity to make a ‘jump’ in consciousness. Many cultures since ancient times have placed a special significance on the Solstices as a time when we are especially receptive to raising our energetic vibrations and achieving much in our spiritual practise. In order to do this, one must consciously work with the energy through meditation, visualisation, intention, and/or energy work (Reiki etc.).
Whatever you decide to do, it’s best to practise outdoors, weather permitting. You can do this alone, or with a group (enjoy celebrating the Solstice with friends!). Begin by sitting quietly, breathing deeply and evenly, feeling yourself relax with every breath (for energy-workers, place the hands over the heart chakra, on the abdomen). For this meditation, your intention is important, so be clear about what it is you would like to do. State your intention clearly in your head. Examples could be: “I now open myself to receive the energies of the Solstice”, or “I now open myself to receive the energies that raise my energetic vibration” etc., or whatever feels right for you!
After stating your intention, imagine that with every in-breath, a white light enters the top of your head (your Crown chakra), and travels down to your Heart chakra (in the centre of your chest). When you exhale, simply allow the breath to leave your body. Remember, this white light is the energy that you called in with your intent. Continue to breathe in the white light to your Heart chakra, seeing it glowing and growing with a brilliant light. When you feel that your Heart chakra is completely filled with this white light, intend/visualise that with every in-breath you continue to breath the white light into your Heart, and with every out-breath, your Heart chakra expands… this ball of white light continues to grow, encompassing your entire body…. continue to breath in, and then expand this light. You can enjoy this state of being, or, if you like, you can expand this light further… to encompass all around you. Remain in this state for as long you like… but take your time with this one, it’s very special!
If you would like to combine mental exercises along with spiritual/energetic exercises, you can use the time of the Solstice to re-assess your life. Look at what you have achieved since the beginning of the year, what direction your life has taken over the past six months, and what actions you can take to create the life that you would like to be living. The ‘old way’ of doing things just doesn’t work anymore, and in order to be in harmony we must open ourselves to letting go and making changes.
During times of accelerating energy and awareness, we either take action, or stagnate. Remember that chaos is always part of new creation, so when it’s time to change, sometimes we just need to take a deep breath… trust… and go for it! The changing/re-organisation of energy fields creates incredibly unexpected new things in your life. So embrace the changes, go with it, consciously let go of the “old”. At this time, I strongly advise you to review all of the spiritual tools that you’ve already gathered, feel solid in your spiritual practises, and USE these tools. Remember to sit in meditation and accept this joyful energy…. and enjoy!
Wednesday June 22nd is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling some of the effects of the Summer Solstice yesterday, plus there will be lots of energy flowing in the areas of creativity, personal expression and communication. This energy can also have the effect of making one more talkative than usual, so in order to avoid this make sure to listen when others are speaking and allow them the time and space to express themselves, too.
Thursday June 23rd is a high-energy day that is all about increasing the flow of abundance in your life, gaining insights into old issues/hurts and releasing old ways of thinking/doing so that you can move forward in life with positive power. You can assist the process of increasing abundance by setting aside 10-15 minutes to visualise your goals (in their completed forms) in this area. Remember to try to use as many of your senses as possible as well as your intention. If you would like to work on gaining insights, you can set this intention before you begin a meditation on this area of your life. Keep a notebook handy so that you can write down your ideas and insights during this process. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s a great day to work on abundance affirmations.
Friday June 24th is a high-energy day that carries many of the themes we experienced on Monday, so I’ll repeat the information here. This energy is very supportive in releasing old attachments and habits (especially the “uncomfortable truth” ones). Healing is also strongly supported, so try to take time for a full energy-healing session (Reiki or other healing energy), as much can be released and healed today. There are also wonderful opportunities to bring balance to significant relationships (romantic or otherwise). It’s time for open communication from the heart, on both sides, in order to strengthen relationships. Are you fulfilled in your relationships? Can you express yourself openly and without fear of judgement? Do your support each other and take joy in one another’s success and strengths? The answers to these questions can assist both parties in strengthening and enriching the relationship.
Saturday June 25th is a day of powerful, active 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+5+6+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. Additionally, there is a significant boost in the areas of physical vitality (increasing your energy levels) and bringing harmony and joy to family/significant relationships.
Sunday June 26th we finish this very active week with a high-energy day that is focused on abundance, prosperity and personal/spiritual transformation. You can make the most of this energy by taking time (as with yesterday) to visualise any goals you have in these areas in their completed forms. The intuition is also very strong today, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and take time for meditation, even just a few minutes, so that you are better able to receive guidance and insight today. However, be aware that relationship issues can also be highlighted today. If you find this to be the case, it’s time for open communication and making sure that both parties listen to one another. If you are feeling “wounded”, it’s a good idea to meditate on why this is so and what issues need to be healed in order to release this.
Wishing all of you a powerful, transformative and positive week ahead!
Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 13th – 19th 2016

Hello Everyone,

This week we experience some very strong energy, with much of it continuing to be focused in the area of transformation.  There are also some good opportunities for increasing abundance and prosperity! The highlights this week include Neptune turning retrograde until November and a Master energy day on Thursday.  As the energy will be quite intense at times, it is important to stay balanced and grounded in order to avoid feeling agitated or “all over the place”.  Taking a bit of extra time every morning for meditation, an energy practise such as Reiki or other balancing/grounding practises will enable you to stay centred and make the most of the energy this week.  My article on Grounding has lots of information about Grounding and different ways this can be achieved:  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/   Remember that early next week we have a Full Moon and then the Summer Solstice, so it’s a good idea to put some extra effort into your state of balance in order to be prepared for this.  With that in mind, let’s take a look at what we can expect this week:

neptune retrograde 2

Monday June 13th we begin the week with a day of strong energy that’s all about letting go of that which no longer serves your higher purpose.  A big part of this is that today we have Neptune turning retrograde until the end of November (the 19th).  Neptune is related to living in harmony with your higher purpose, divine inspiration and the spiritual area of life.  During a retrograde period of Neptune, we can become much more aware of that which does and doesn’t serve our higher purpose and then make the necessary changes and adjustments that allow us to let go, change and transform our lives in positive, powerful ways.

Reflect upon the different areas of your life:  relationships, work, emotional state, physical health etc.  As you reflect upon each area, pay attention to how you feel.  If you feel positive and relaxed, this a good sign that you’re on the right path.  However, if you feel uneasy, unhappy, dissatisfied, frustrated etc. it is a clear sign that changes should be made.  With Neptune, this takes the form of release:  releasing old patterns, habits, fears, wounds…as well as letting go of certain people, ways of thinking and even physical objects.  Give thanks for the lessons that you have learned and blessings received and then take clear steps to let go.

Additionally, today there are also wonderful opportunities for healing and resolving recurring issues within relationships, finances and creative expression.  Pay attention to any problems that recur in these areas, for these are clear indications of what needs to be learned, healed and what changes need to be made in order to create new beginnings and fresh starts.

 

Tuesday June 14th is a high-energy day when the intuition will be stronger than usual and the process of transformation is supported.  This energy is active, so listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you in taking appropriate action and creating change, thereby quickening your process of change.  Try starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes) so that you are better able to receive intuitive “flashes” and guidance throughout the day.  The energy today is also supportive of creative expression and assisting others, so listen to your inner-voice and be inspired in these areas.

 

 

Wednesday June 15th be aware that the strong energy of transformation which we have been experiencing recently can cause feelings of agitation, frustration and even angry outbursts in those who are resisting change and not using the energy in beneficial ways.  If you have been experiencing any of these emotions, it’s time to take a step back and see how/where you can redirect this energy in order to benefit from it.  You may choose to release this excess of active energy through intense activity or exercise, but it is more beneficial in the long run if you take action in creating change in yourself.  This is also a great day for healing and other spiritual practises, so this is another way to rebalance your energy in order to use it for positive changes.  This will also assist you in releasing old hurts and habits.

 

Thursday June 16th is a day of powerful, active 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 (1+6+6+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.

Additionally, there is a significant boost in the areas of prosperity, abundance and transformation.  Reflect upon areas of your life in which you would like to experience change and abundance and then create a strategy for creating this.  Open yourself to new possibilities, break free from old habits and thought-patterns and consciously work on increasing the flow of positive energy into your life.

 

Friday June 17th the energy will be very supportive of relationships, especially in strengthening and healing significant ones.  The theme of transformation continues, so take time to reflect upon how you can help to create positive changes.  What can you change or let go of in order to move to this more harmonious state?  Are there old issues in need of healing and release?  The answers to these questions can help you in making the most of the energy today.

 

Saturday June 18th the energy will be focused in the areas of healing and rebalancing.  After so much strong energy this week, it’s a good idea to just let go today, relax and enjoy.  Spending time in nature and/or practising an energy technique (e.g. Reiki, Tai Chi, yoga etc.) is a great way to rebalance and recharge today.  You may also want to set aside time for a healing treatment, as much can be healed and released today.

 

Sunday June 19th we finish the week with a day of light, bright, active energy.  Enjoy this day by sharing it with others, perhaps trying a new activity or going to a new place.   You may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on and we approach the Full Moon of tomorrow.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week of transformation, release and positive change!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 6th – 12th 2016

Hello Everyone,

Although the energy this week won’t be as intense as it was last week, there is a lot of strong energy coming up.  The highlights are a “Master Energy” day on Tuesday as well as great opportunities for personal transformation, productivity and manifesting goals throughout the week.  Let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how to make the most of the energy coming up:

transformation

Monday June 6th we begin the week with a high-energy day that’s all about manifesting your goals.  Take time to reflect upon manifesting abundance and fulfilment in the following areas of life:  relationships, finances, creative expression and spirituality.  Have clear goals and ideas, otherwise the energy will be scattered.  Create clear strategies and then empower them by sitting quietly and visualising each of your goals in their completed forms (this is part of the Law of Attraction).  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 incredibly powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.  Additionally, creativity is also strongly supported.

 

Tuesday June 7th 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 (7+6+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.

Additionally, there is a very significant extra “push” of energy in the process of transformation, should you choose to open yourself to making changes and adjustments.  Reflect upon the areas of relationships, creativity and finances… what changes would you like to see?  What can you change about yourself in order to bring fresh, positive energy to these areas?

 

Wednesday June 8th the energy will be very supportive in the areas of healing, teaching and counselling.  Be open to offering your expertise to colleagues, friends or family who may benefit from your knowledge.  Or perhaps you have been wanting to ask for guidance or assistance but have held back… today is a great day to open up!  It’s also a good idea to schedule time for a healing treatment (any type of energy healing or bodywork), as much can be healed and released today.

 

Thursday June 9th the energy will be flowing in the area of communication.  This provides us with an opportunity to reflect upon how we communicate with others:  do you think before you speak?  Can you express yourself more diplomatically?  Do you listen carefully when others are communicating with you?  The answers to these questions can guide you in improving your communication skills and relationships.  The energy today can also be a great help in boosting productivity, so keep busy and you should be able to get a lot done!

 

Friday June 10th we have a “break” between two high-energy days.  This should also be the only day of the week with such gentle, flowing energy.  Take things easy today as much as possible and rather than starting new projects, it’s a good idea to continue work on current ones.

 

Saturday June 11th is a high-energy day when the intuition will be especially strong and we are supported in the process of transformation.  This energy is active, so listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you in taking appropriate action and creating change, thereby quickening your process of transformation.  Try starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes) so that you are better able to receive intuitive “flashes” and guidance throughout the day.  The energy today is also supportive of creative expression and assisting others, so listen to your inner-voice and be inspired in these areas.

 

Sunday June 12th we finish the week with a high-energy day that’s focused on healing, as well as assisting and guiding others.  Be aware that by focusing your efforts in these areas, you can boost your process of transformation.  This theme is a continuation of the energy we experienced yesterday, so listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you.   Healthy communication is also supported today, especially within significant relationships, so this also brings a healing aspect to any possible issues in this area.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
