Weekly Forecast, Nov 28th – Dec 4th 2016

Hello Everyone,

How have you been feeling since the special cycle of intense energy started last week? Some have been experiencing some wonderful changes and new starts, while others have been feeling overwhelmed and/or off-balance. This powerful energy continues this week, plus we have the New Moon in Sagittarius combined with a “22” Master energy day, so if you’ve been enjoying the energy, you’ll love this coming week! On the other hand, if you have been experiencing lots of challenges, it’s time to re-balance and create some big changes. It is very important to stay grounded and focused during this time. There are many ways in which you can do this, including the ones mentioned in the following article I wrote on this subject: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ You can also try listening to my free, guided meditation for grounding and energising by clicking on the following link: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding Now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect during this powerful week:

sagittarius-new-moon3

Monday November 28th we begin the week with a VERY high-energy day and the peak of the 10-day energy cycle that I mentioned in last week’s forecast. Here is the information again for your reference: this is a very interesting 10-day period during which time the intuition will be especially strong and the energy offers great potential to make big changes, clear blockages in life, empower and also increase the flow of energy into specific areas of life. These include: increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, experiencing breakthroughs or major shifts in your ways of thinking, outlook on life and also any spiritual practises that you may have.

In order to benefit from this energy, it is essential to use it consciously. Ideally, you should set aside time today to do the following: reflect upon the areas mentioned above and make strategies/plans for making your goals and intentions a reality. We get a very nice push of energy today to get the ball rolling, so make the most of it! New ideas and unconventional thinking are also the way to go during this time period. The intuition will be extra-strong, too, so pay attention to your “gut feelings”/instincts/higher-self. If you do any work with Reiki affirmations, the Law of Attraction etc, make an effort to practise these every day over the next 10 days. The effort will be worth it!

 

Tuesday November 29th is a VERY high-energy day when we have the powerful combination of the New Moon in Sagittarius plus a “22” Master energy day. Any New Moon is a great time for new beginnings, new projects and fresh starts, but the influence of Sagittarius places additional emphasis on the areas of travel, spiritual practises, new experiences (especially cultural and philosophical), joy and expansion. As Sagittarius is ruled by the element of fire, there is a sense of action and enthusiasm!

The influence of “22” Master energy greatly empowers all of the themes mentioned above. 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+9+1+1+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.

If you would like to actively connect with the New Moon energy, a great way to do so is through meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a New Moon meditation in the following way:

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 and use your distant healing symbols to send Reiki to the Moon. You can use any method of distance healing you prefer. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies

 

Wednesday November 30th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s powerful energy combined with great potential to make big changes, clear blockages in life, empower and also increase the flow of energy into specific areas of life. These include: increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, experiencing breakthroughs or major shifts in your ways of thinking, outlook on life and also any spiritual practises that you may have. So this energy is very similar to what we experienced on Monday, but today we have additional emphasis on the area strategy and negotiation. The energy today is quite forceful, so if you have been taking a gentle approach in strategies and negotiation, it may be time to take a much stronger stance. This strong approach also applies to the areas mentioned earlier: it’s a day to take ACTION and to really push the energy!

 

Thursday December 1st is a high-energy day that marks the end of the special energy cycle mentioned in Monday’s forecast. If you haven’t already been making good use of the energy, make a final effort to do so today! Please refer to Monday’s forecast for details of how to best use this energy.

 

Friday December 2nd the energy will be active, though not as strong as yesterday. It’s important to keep the momentum going: continue work on projects, keep building on strategies and plans, but also take time to reflect upon your current state. If you’re feeling stressed out or tired, plan some time this weekend for rest and re-charging.

 

Saturday December 3rd is a good day to continue working on strategies and plans. However, don’t push yourself too hard. We’ve had so much intense energy over the past couple of weeks, recognise the need to balance this with relaxation and enjoyment! Often, when things get very busy, we can neglect other areas of life. Take a few moments to reflect upon this: how are your significant relationships? How is your personal state of being? If you’ve been overlooking these areas of life recently, it’s a good idea to focus on them today.

 

Sunday December 4th we finish the week with energy that is very supportive in nurturing, both the self and those we care deeply for. Allow yourself time to relax, recharge and enjoy! Ideally, spend some time in nature (even if it’s just a gentle walk in the park), breathe deeply and focus on the present moment. Those plans and strategies will need continued effort and focus, but for today you should do your best to replenish your energy in order to avoid feeling burned-out or stressed-out.

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, November 21st-27th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have an incredibly active week ahead, filled with high-energy days and many opportunities to create big changes in our lives. However, you must use this energy actively and consciously in order to reap the rewards! It is also very important to stay grounded and focused, otherwise you will likely find yourself feeling agitated, frustrated, “all over the place” or even short-tempered. If you find yourself feeling this way, reflect upon how well you are using the energy. It is also an indication that you need to ground your energy. There are many ways in which you can do this, including the ones mentioned in the following article I wrote on this subject:  http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/  You can also try listening to my free, guided meditation for grounding and energising by clicking on the following link: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding And now, let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect during this powerful week:

make something happen

Monday November 21st we begin the week with a day of active, bright energy. You can use this energy well by staying busy and accomplishing tasks, but try not to take on too many things otherwise you may end up feeling overwhelmed (especially later in the week). The intuition is especially strong today, so listen to your “gut instinct” and pay attention to any “signs”.

 

Tuesday November 22nd the energy will be focused on the areas of communication, exchanging and/or sharing ideas and information with others. If you’ve been making plans that require help from others, today is well-aspected for discussing them with the right people. There is also a “learning” aspect to today, so be conscious of staying receptive and recognising when it’s time to pay attention and listen (and I mean really listening… and thinking before you speak!).

 

Wednesday November 23rd is a high-energy day that begins a very interesting 10-day period during which time the intuition will be especially strong and the energy offers great potential to make big changes, clear blockages in life, empower and also increase the flow of energy into specific areas of life. These include: increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, experiencing breakthroughs or major shifts in your ways of thinking, outlook on life and also any spiritual practises that you may have.

In order to benefit from this energy, it is essential to use it consciously. Ideally, you should set aside time today to do the following: reflect upon the areas mentioned above and make strategies/plans for making your goals and intentions a reality. We get a very nice push of energy today to get the ball rolling, so make the most of it! New ideas and unconventional thinking are also the way to go during this time period. The intuition will be extra-strong, too, so pay attention to your “gut feelings”/instincts/higher-self. If you do any work with Reiki affirmations, the Law of Attraction etc, make an effort to practise these every day over the next 10 days. The effort will be worth it!

 

Thursday November 24th is a high-energy day when we experience the energy and themes of yesterday (please check the Wednesday forecast above), with the added element of a focus on relationships and creative expression. How can you improve or empower these areas of your life? Is it time to heal any issues in these areas, make changes or let go of whatever no longer works or serves your higher purpose in these areas (including ending or limiting your connection/association with certain people)? As a side-note, today is also very good for improving your financial situation.

 

Friday November 25th we have our third day of strong energy. Today you will find the energy to be a continuation of the energy we experienced yesterday. Remember to be conscious of using the energy well and focus it in the areas of your life in need of change or empowerment.

 

Saturday November 26th we experience a continuation of the energetic influence that began on Wednesday, but today we also experience and added boost of energy supporting the areas of healing and personal breakthroughs. Continue working on strategies taking action in areas that you began earlier this week. The intuition is also very strong today, so listen to your inner-voice. It’s also a good idea to take time for a full Reiki (or other energy) self-treatment or receive a treatment from a practitioner as much can be healed and released today.

 

Sunday November 27th we end the week with high-energy day that takes Wednesday’s themes and emphasises them even further. Think of today as the “peak” of the 10-day energetic influence mentioned in that forecast. So stay active today and take time to work on your Reiki affirmations, visualisations to attract abundance and prosperity and strategies for change.

 

Wishing all of you a powerful and positive week of change!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Nov. 14th – 20th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have an exciting week to look forward to: the big highlight is the Super Full Moon in Taurus that happens on Monday (what a way to kick off the week!), and the other event is Neptune turning “direct” on Saturday after being retrograde since June. There is a strong energy of taking action this week, but we also get a couple of days mid-week when things slow down a bit and we get some time to rest and recharge out batteries. It’s very important to stay focused and grounded this week in order to make the most of the energy. I have included a link to my guided meditation for grounding in this forecast, but for more information on grounding techniques that anyone can practise, please read my article on this subject: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/  So now let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week, what to expect and what we can do to best use this energy:

full_moon_water_640

Monday November 14th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience a rare Super Full Moon. What makes this event so rare is that we will not have the Full Moon at such a close distance to the Earth until 2034! So not only will the Moon appear larger than usual in the sky, it is said that the energetic effects of this Full Moon will be greatly amplified. Take the following information about this Taurus Full Moon and multiply the effects many times over!

Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect up on the time since the last Full Moon and see “where you’re at”, what needs to be released or what needs to be adjusted in order to move forward in life with greater power and positivity. Taurus is ruled by the element of Earth, so the dominant themes of this Full Moon are finances, personal possessions, self-image and how you relate to the physical world. Is it time to overhaul your spending habits? What practical steps can you take to increase the flow of money into your life? What possessions can you donate or discard in order to create the space for more prosperity to flow? Do you have a healthy self-image (if not, it’s time for some deep healing in this area)? Are you regularly spending time in nature in order to ground yourself and reconnect with Earth energy? Are you stubbornly holding onto ideas and habits that no longer serve your highest good? This Full Moon is an excellent time to reflect upon these questions and create strategies for change where it’s needed.

Remember that the theme of revolutionary transformation is still very much flowing in the background, so you can also use this time to work on this!

A great way to connect with this powerful Full Moon energy is through meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a 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 (of course, you can also use any other form of distant healing that you may prefer).

As this Full Moon should be a magical sight, perhaps you can get together with friends to experience the special energy (weather permitting, of course). 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.

 

Tuesday November 15th is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the energetic effects of yesterday’s Super Full Moon. There will also be additional emphasis today in the areas of thinking and communication. Perhaps you have some exciting ideas inspired by the energy of the Full Moon? Take time to create strategies based upon these. Regarding communication, it’s great to share your thoughts and ideas but make sure that you don’t talk too much or share with the “wrong” people.

 

Wednesday November 16th is a day of gentler energy. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks or start new projects, it’s a good idea to work on existing projects and any strategies that you may have been inspired to create over the past couple of days.

 

Thursday November 17th the energy will be gentle and flowing. As with yesterday, continue to work on existing projects. Try to “go with the flow” as much as possible today, if possible.

 

Friday November 18th the energy will be very supportive in taking action, but the big challenge today is staying focused! In order to make the most of today’s energy, choose areas in which to focus your energy and attention and then stick to it. If you are finding this difficult, take time for a grounding exercise. You may find my free, guided meditation for grounding useful: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding

 

Saturday November 19th is a high-energy day when we experience Neptune turning “direct” after being retrograde since mid-June. 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. If you have been actively working on these areas during the time of Neptune retrograde (which is not an easy process!), things should get much easier with Neptune turning direct.

Furthermore, the intuition is highlighted so allow it to guide you, especially in the areas of spirituality, your true life purpose and psychic/3rd eye awakening. Creativity is also strongly supported now, with the imagination empowered and inspiration to be found all around you. However, be aware that there is a darker side to Neptune direct: choosing fantasy over reality. This can manifest as deluding oneself that a negative, stagnant or unhelpful situation is fine to tolerate or live with. For example, staying in an unhealthy relationship, a “dead-end” or unfulfilling job, justifying unhealthy habits etc.

In order to avoid falling into this trap of illusion, use your heart and intuition! Take a step back and reflect upon the different areas of your life (relationships, work, health, spirituality, life-path etc.). As you reflect upon each one, how do you feel? If you’re not feeling fulfilled or empowered, it’s time for some big changes. So many people accept their situations because of fear: fear of being alone, fear of not being able to support oneself, fear of change, fear of failure etc. In order to avoid facing reality, they embrace illusions. Don’t fall into this trap! Stay focused, gather your energy and make a strategy for change that you can act upon as soon as possible.

 

Sunday November 20th we finish the week with a day of strong intuition, good possibilities for creative expression and lots of energy supporting the area of relationships. To better receive intuitive guidance and inspiration, I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!). Regarding relationships, it’s a great day for shared activities that strengthen the relationship. This energy is light, so enjoy it!

 

Wishing all of you a fantastic week ahead… enjoy the Full Moon!

Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast November 7th – 13th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have an exciting week ahead with wonderful opportunities in continuing the process of personal transformation, inspiration and increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance. Thankfully, we also get a couple of “quiet” days amongst the high-energy days, so there is time to rest, reflect, recharge and prepare for more action! Bear in mind that if one is resisting the process of change and transformation, it can cause a state of agitation and even being hot-tempered. So be patient with those around you (or even yourself!) and understand that some people are so scared to let go and change that they will cling to the “old” even when it becomes harmful to do so. There is much to do this week, so let’s take a detailed look at what is coming up and how we can best use this energy:

transformation

Monday November 7th we begin the week with a day of active energy, strong intuition and plenty of energy flowing in the areas of personal transformation, productivity, relationships and creative expression and inspiration. Allow your intuition to guide you in these areas and focus the energy where you would like to create positive changes. To better connect with your intuition, set aside time (even just a few minutes!) for meditation. By doing so, you create the space to receive intuitive guidance and inspiration.

 

Tuesday November 8th the energy will be gentle and flowing. Rather than starting new projects, it’s a good idea to continue working on areas that you focused on yesterday. The energy will be more active tomorrow, so save new activities for then.

 

Wednesday November 9th is a high-energy day when the intuition is strengthened and there are great opportunities for taking action, expressing your creative side, increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life and injecting new passion into relationships. Listen to your intuition and allow it to guide you in these areas! It’s also a good idea to set aside time to visualise your goals for abundance and prosperity in order to make the most of the energy. It may be that you do work with the Law of Attraction or other visualisation techniques, and for Reiki 2 practitioners it’s an excellent day to work on your Reiki affirmations. Whatever your preferred method, sit quietly and visualise each of your goals in their completed forms. Work on them one by one, using as many of your senses as possible. Truly feel and intend that each goal is now completed!

 

Thursday November 10th is a day of gentle, flowing energy. It’s a good day to work on existing projects as well as taking time to reflect on “where you are at” in terms of personal transformation.

 

Friday November 11th is a day of powerful, active energy! It’s a day to put your ideas and intuitive flashes into action, to be inspired and to take action in creating and attracting more prosperity into your life. As with Wednesday, set aside time to work on visualising each of your goals in their completed forms (especially goals related to increasing the flow of prosperity).

As the energy of today is so strong, make sure you stay active and use it well otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated, restless or “all over the place”. There are many who believe that this day of “11:11” is especially powerful because of the Master Number of 11 being doubled. In numerology, “11” represents manifesting the following on the physical level: high level of spiritual perception, reaching one’s highest potential and the powerful energy of action. So don’t waste the energy… use it actively in order to give yourself a big boost of power!

 

Saturday November 12th is a VERY high-energy day that marks the beginning of two months of revolutionary transformation! During this time, it is very important to let go of any old patterns, habits, ways of thinking, situations, relationships etc. that are holding you back and no longer serve your higher purpose. Only by doing so can one truly experience revolutionary change and reach one’s highest potential! This is not always an easy process (otherwise everyone would be transforming in the most positive way) and it does involve recognising the fears that are holding you back and preventing your process of change.

Fear is always at the root: fear of the unknown, of not being supported, of putting yourself “out there”, fear of being alone etc. However, you must remember that these fears are holding you back and preventing you from growing! Reflect upon any fears that you may have, get to the root of the problem and start working on TRUST and GRATITUDE. Whenever the fear comes up, repeat the following mantra to yourself: “I trust, I trust, I trust”. It’s very simple, yet very effective. You can also write your fears down and then burn the piece of paper, intending that the fears are now released. If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, do your self-treatments with the intention of releasing all fears that are limiting you. If you have been having difficulty in releasing fears, it can be very helpful to contact a healer who can assist you in healing and releasing them.

This process of transformation covers all areas of life: spiritual, relationships, work, finances, health etc. Use this exciting energy efficiently by reflecting on each of these areas in your life. Wherever there is stagnation, dissatisfaction, frustration etc., there is an indication of a need for big changes! Don’t procrastinate. Do this NOW! You can greatly assist this process through daily visualisations of your goals and if you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, get busy with those Reiki affirmations!

 

Sunday November 13th we get a strong boost of energy empowering the act of transformation. It’s a great day to make a start on suggestions that are listed above in Saturday’s forecast! Sorry for being repetitive here, but DON’T WASTE TIME, DO THIS NOW!!!

You may also notice the energy increasing as the day goes on and we near tomorrow’s very powerful Full Moon. This Full Moon is very significant, a SUPERMOON when the Moon will be at it’s closest to the Earth until the year 2034! This makes the energetic effects much more powerful than usual. I will post a special report on this coming Supermoon within this week, so stay tuned!

 

Wishing all of you a powerful and positive week ahead!

Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast November 1st – 6th 2016

Hello Everyone,
The exciting news is that November marks the beginning of two months of revolutionary transformation! There is great potential as long as one actively uses the energy in a positive way, but be aware that this energy can cause one to feel agitated or frustrated if there is resistance to change or transformation. Also, remember that transformation begins within… just as a pebble thrown into a pond creates ripples, so your inner transformation will affect your physical life and can also inspire those around you. This is both a powerful and positive experience, but it is important to stay focused and aware, open yourself to new possibilities and ways of being/thinking, and to clear away any old blockages that may be hindering your progress. This week we have many opportunities to do this, so let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect and how we can best use the energy:

transform

Tuesday November 1st we experience energy flowing in the areas of communication and spiritual transformation. In communicating, it is important to speak your truth and to do this from the heart. Remember that the theme of transformation is one that is quite strong this month, and today the emphasis is on the spiritual.

 

Wednesday November 2nd the energy will be rather “low key”, so rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s preferable to work on current projects and not overload yourself with too many tasks.

 

Thursday November 3rd the energy will be focused on the area of truth, seeing beyond the surface and being discerning. It’s a time to ask questions and go within to seek the answers. Your intuition (or “gut instinct”) is a valuable tool in this process, so pay attention to your instincts and take time to meditate on any challenging issues or questions. Be open to seeing things from different perspectives!

 

Friday November 4th we have lots of energy flowing in the area of relationships. Specifically, healing any issues or challenges that may have arisen recently. In this case, the energy is supportive in coming up with solutions together in order to reach a more harmonious place. The energy today is also supportive in assisting us in recognising old emotional hurts within ourselves that need to be healed. In this case, take time to reflect on the issue(s) and what you need to do in order to heal and release. It may be that you need to set aside time for a full self-treatment (Reiki or other healing energy) or perhaps receive assistance in this process from an energy-healing practitioner.

 

Saturday November 5th is a high-energy day filled with plenty of opportunities for growth in the areas of relationships, creative expression and increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance into one’s life. Relationships get a wonderful boost of positive energy (especially if you have been working on creating more harmony), and it’s also a great day to take time for expressing your creative side! Regarding prosperity and abundance, pay attention to any possible opportunities and be ready to take action. It’s also a good idea to take time to sit quietly and work on manifesting greater prosperity and abundance through techniques such as Reiki affirmations or the Law of Attraction. Imagine each of your goals in this area in their completed forms, using as many of your senses as possible. Truly intend and feel that each goal is now completed!

 

Sunday November 6th we finish the week with lots of positive energy focused in the areas of teaching, guidance and personal transformation. Whether you are a healer for yourself or for others, you’ll have plenty of support in this area today. Set aside time for a full self-treatment or offer a treatment to someone you feel is in need of one (or would simply enjoy one!). Regarding personal transformation, a healing session can benefit you greatly in this area, as well as any spiritual practise that you may prefer. As with yesterday, there is also good potential today for increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance, so take time to practise the visualising/intending techniques mentioned in yesterday’s forecast.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week of positive changes and growth!
Many blessings,
Chantal
