Weekly Forecast June 26th – July 2nd 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have many days of active energy this week, though nothing as intense as what we experienced last week. There are great opportunities for strengthening and healing relationships, having inspirational ideas and taking the lead. So let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy.

Monday June 26th the week begins with a gentle flow of energy. Although it doesn’t have much potential for great productivity at work, there is good support for activities that combine the physical with the spiritual/energetic such as Tai Chi, qigong, yoga, ecstatic dance etc.

 

Tuesday June 27th the intuition will be stronger than usual and we can expect lots of energy stimulating the area of the mind, leading to good problem-solving ability as well as sharper/quicker thinking. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even if just for a few minutes) so that you are better able to connect with your intuition or “higher self” today.

 

Wednesday June 28th is a high-energy day with the focus on the area of communication. It’s a good day to express yourself and speak your mind, but the energy will also be quite fiery so make sure that you don’t get too carried away or express yourself too forcefully. Most of all, don’t express yourself through confrontation and avoid those who do. Although it’s great to express anything that you’ve been holding back, make sure that it’s done calmly and from a place of compassion and kindness.

Be aware that there is the potential for challenges in the areas of finances and relationships. If any come up today, it is important to stop and reflect upon what changes or adjustments can be made in order to make the situation positive for everyone involved. By making this effort, you can make any gains much greater.

 

Thursday June 29th is a high-energy day that’s all about taking action, taking the initiative and being a leader. To make the most of this energy, reflect upon how you can apply it to areas of your life that you may have been overlooking, especially relationships. In fact, the area of relationships will be strongly emphasised over the three weeks or so. Be prepared for challenges to arise in any areas that aren’t “solid”… and realise that if these occur, it’s an opportunity to bring healing and balance to them. However, any areas of life that are solid and grounded will be empowered during this time.

 

Friday June 30th is a high-energy day that has great potential, depending on how you choose to use the energy. There is good potential for intellectual pursuits, problem-solving, writing and healing. However, it is very important to stay focused and grounded, otherwise you may find yourself feeling overly-sensitive, impatient or “all over the place”. If you find yourself feeling “triggered”, pay attention to the root cause within yourself so that you can work on healing and releasing it.

Another aspect of today is that the energy is wonderful for manifesting your goals through energy/visualisation exercises (Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction etc). 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.

 

Saturday July 1st we begin a new month with a day of active, bright energy. Of course you could choose to use this energy by getting lots done, but today’s energy is great for doing activities that you enjoy (preferably in nature), especially with loved ones. Allow yourself the time to let go and open your heart to this positive energy!

 

Sunday July 2nd is a high-energy day when we can expect the themes of Thursday to be more strongly highlighted. Here is that information again: taking action, taking the initiative and being a leader. To make the most of this energy, reflect upon how you can apply it to areas of your life that you may have been overlooking, especially relationships. In fact, the area of relationships will be strongly emphasised over the three weeks or so. Be prepared for challenges to arise in any areas that aren’t “solid”… and realise that if these occur, it’s an opportunity to bring healing and balance to them. However, any areas of life that are solid and grounded will be empowered during this time.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast June 18th – 24th 2017

Hello Everyone,

Hold on to your hats, folks, because the week ahead will be a VERY powerful one! In fact, the only “quiet” day this week is on Thursday, with the rest of the week being very active. Highlights of this week include the Summer Solstice on Wednesday and a New Moon combined with Master Energy on Saturday. There is much to share, so let’s take a look at what we can expect this week and how we can make good use of the energy:

Monday June 19th the week begins with a high-energy day when the intuition will be especially strong and the day is filled with possibilities: devoting more energy into a higher cause, practical creativity, creating strategies and getting the ball rolling with these, healing/releasing work and increasing the flow of prosperity into your life through techniques such as Reiki affirmations and visualisation (Law of Attraction etc.). So choose the area(s) you would like to focus on and use the energy to your advantage. As the intuition is strong, allow it to guide you and listen to your inner voice.

However, be conscious of using the energy in a positive and focused way, otherwise you may find challenges arising today in the areas of creativity, finances and/or relationships. Make sure you express yourself clearly and with kindness. If you experience any obstacles today, take a step back and reflect upon whether or not your current direction serves your higher purpose. These “obstacles” often show us what we need to change or adjust within ourselves in order to move forward. Ask yourself what changes or adjustments you can make in order to bring harmony to these areas?

 

Tuesday June 20th is a high-energy day when the intuition continues to be strong and there is lots of support in the areas of creativity, spiritual/divine awareness, inspired thinking and healing. When there are so many possibilities in how to use the energy, choose one or two areas to focus on so that you don’t feel “all over the place”. Remember that tomorrow is the Summer Solstice, so you may want to set aside time today to reflect upon tomorrow’s themes so that you are prepared to make the most of this special energy!

 

Wednesday June 21st is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Summer Solstice. There are various opinions in the spiritual world as to why the Summer Solstice is so energetically significant. However, all agree that this day presents us with a unique opportunity to make a ‘leap’ in consciousness. During these 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”. Of course, many cultures since ancient times have placed significance on the Solstices, but let’s look at what is being said specifically about this one.

It is said that starting from today, the current planetary alignment places the focus on family, home and security for the next month. There is also lots of support for learning, communication and thinking. With the intuition continuing to be strong, allow it to guide you in working on any of these areas that may be in need of harmony and/or empowerment. There is also good potential for healing, especially old “wounds”, so you may wish to take time for a full healing session or practise today. This healing potential can also be applied to relationships, so if there any issues within significant relationships/partnerships, today is an excellent day to work on these.

Some speak about the Solstice being a time when we are especially receptive to raising our energetic vibrations. In order to do this, one must consciously work with the energies through meditation, visualisation, intention, and/or energy work (Reiki etc.). Whatever you decide to do, it’s best to practise outdoors. You can do this alone, or with a group (you may enjoy celebrating the Solstice with friends!). If you wish to do a meditation for the Solstice, here is simple yet effective one that I hope you enjoy:

Sit quietly and close your eyes. If you are a Reiki (or other energy) practitioner, place the hands on the body, resting lightly on the knees or placed over the heart chakra. Breathe deeply and evenly, focusing attention on the breath and quieting the mind.

When you feel calm and centred, begin to imagine your breath as a radiant white light. Imagine/intend that this light is coming directly from the sun, filling you and energising every cell of your body. Be aware of being filled with vitality, strength, joy and love. With every breath, this feeling intensifies…

Feel your heart chakra glowing and growing…expanding infinitely…filled with love.

Feel how we are all ONE, how your love connects you with every living thing. Feel your energy expanding so that you are filled with love for all…feel your connection with the Earth. Continue breathing deeply and evenly.

Imagine that this brilliant light which fills you is expanding throughout the world, and beyond. Feel your connection with the universe, with the Divine! Give yourself permission to expand… Give yourself permission to raise your vibration and to be aware of the higher energies.

When you are feeling this connection, this one-ness, just “be”. Take as much time as you like to enjoy this experience, this feeling.

 

Thursday June 22nd is our only “quiet” day during this week of very powerful energy, so make the most of it by allowing yourself time to rest and recharge. Don’t push yourself too hard or try to accomplish too many tasks today, “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Friday June 23rd is a high-energy day with lots of support in the areas of learning, communication, healing old emotional “wounds” and increasing the flow of prosperity into your life. There are many choices in terms of which areas of your life you would like to work on today, so choose your focus and then make the most of today’s energetic support.

 

Saturday June 24th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Cancer combined with the power of “Master Energy”. Any New Moon is an ideal time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Cancer places extra emphasis on the areas of home, family, nurturing and security. Reflect upon these areas in your life and think of ways in which you can bring new energy into them.

A good way to connect with the energy today is through meditation. You can do your own 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 you can use your preferred method of distance Reiki to send energy to the Moon. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

As I mentioned earlier, the power of today’s New Moon is greatly increased because, according to numerology, this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (2+4+6+2+0+1+7= 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 June 25th the week finishes with a day of strong energy that can either be empowering or challenging, depending on how you use it. Potential challenges include angry outbursts and dominating or pushing others around (especially those close to you). Instead, make a conscious decision to use the energy in positive ways that include being a leader or providing guidance in a kind and understanding manner, and consciously using the energy in a joyful way.

 

Wishing all of you a powerful and positive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 12th – 18th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week the energy will be more “settled” than last week, with continuing themes of healing and adjustment. However, there will also be some great opportunities for manifesting your goals through energy/visualisation practises, so make good use of these! The highlights this week include a “Master Energy” day on Thursday and Neptune turning retrograde on Friday. The time of Neptune retrograde is all about release, so there is good potential to let go and grow. With that, let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week and how to make the most of it:

 

Monday June 12th the week begins with lots of support in the areas of healing, guidance and mental balance/health. It’s a great day to continue with any healing work that you may have been doing recently (especially related to themes of release). It’s also worthwhile reflecting on any areas in which you can provide guidance or mentoring to others. If you’ve been feeling “overloaded” in terms of your mental balance, for example worrying or over-thinking, it’s time to step back and take time (even just a few minutes!) to rebalance through meditation, mindfulness or energy practises such as Reiki.

 

Tuesday June 13th is a high-energy day that has potential for the following, depending on how you choose to use the energy. There is good potential for intellectual pursuits, problem-solving, writing and healing. However, it is very important to stay focused and grounded, otherwise you may find yourself feeling overly-sensitive, impatient or “all over the place”. If you find yourself feeling “triggered”, pay attention to the root cause within yourself so that you can work on healing and releasing it.

Another interesting aspect of today is that the energy is wonderful for manifesting your goals through energy/visualisation exercises (Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction etc). 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.

 

Wednesday June 14th we can expect a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than rushing around or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to focus only what absolutely needs to be done and try to “go with the flow” as much as possible today. The energy will be much stronger tomorrow, so save the action for then, if you can.

 

Thursday June 15th 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+5+6+2+0+1+7= 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 experience any obstacles today, take a step back and reflect upon whether or not your current direction serves your higher purpose. These “obstacles” often show us what we need to change or adjust within ourselves in order to move forward.

 

Friday June 16th the energy will be quite interesting, as today we experience Neptune turning retrograde until November 22nd. 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.

 

Saturday June 17th the energy will be focused in the area of communication. It’s a good day to express yourself and speak your mind, but the energy will also be quite fiery so make sure that you don’t get too carried away or express yourself too forcefully. Most of all, don’t express yourself through confrontation and avoid those who do. Although it’s great to express anything that you’ve been holding back, make sure that it’s done calmly.

 

Sunday June 18th we finish the week with a day of light, bright energy. This energy is all about spontaneity and having fun! Let go, open yourself to enjoyment, perhaps try something new and make the most of the day.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 5th – 11th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have a week of very active energy coming up, including a Master Energy day on Tuesday and then the big highlight of the week on Friday: a Full Moon in Sagittarius combined with Jupiter turning “direct” after being retrograde since February. Remember that during such an active week it’s important to stay grounded, otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or “all over the place”. Try to practise grounding daily. For information on grounding and practises for this, you are welcome to read my article on the subject here: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ or listen to my free, guided meditation for grounding and energising here: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips  So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how to use the energy:

Monday June 5th we begin the week with a nice flow of energy in the areas of creativity and healing (especially hands-on healing and energy-healing, such as Reiki). The intuition will be stronger than usual, so this can assist you in being creatively inspired. The intuition can also be beneficial in helping you gain insights into your healing process as well as your relationships.

 

Tuesday June 6th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the peak of the energy cycle which I wrote about in the May 27th forecast last week, as well as a “Master Energy” day. To recap: this 2-week cycle of energy which began last week has the potential to highlight any challenging areas of life that need either healing or reorganising and restructuring. If you find yourself facing any challenges, it’s time to take a step back and think about what changes you need to make in order to get things moving along smoothly again… and then take action with these changes! These challenges indicate where changes/healing need to happen, so pay attention and use this time in a positive way, rather than wasting the energy and continuing to stagnate or exist in a state of frustration/stress.

Another aspect during this 2-week cycle is that the energy will be very supportive in manifesting your goals through energy/visualisation exercises (Reiki affirmations, Law of Attraction etc). Try to take time every day to work on these in order to gain the greatest benefit. When we combine this energy with today’s “Master Energy”, we get some very powerful potential, indeed!

According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (6+6+2+0+1+7= 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.

 

Wednesday June 7th we get a bit of a mid-week “break”, as the energy today is expected to be gentle and light. Rather than trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to focus only what needs to be done and “go with the flow” as much as possible. We have some very “active” days coming up, so enjoy taking things easy today.

 

Thursday June 8th is a high-energy day with good potential for intellectual pursuits, problem-solving, writing and healing. However, it is very important to stay focused and grounded because there is also the potential for conflict by having your “buttons pushed”. If you find yourself being “triggered” by someone’s actions or words, look within yourself at the reason for allowing this “triggering” to happen, rather than lashing out/responding. Remember that nobody can make us react a particular way (although it’s very common to blame someone else for one’s reactions). Be conscious of your actions/reactions, and choose to learn rather than repeating old patterns.

 

Friday June 9th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Sagittarius as well as Jupiter turning “direct” after being retrograde since the beginning of February. Any Full Moon is a good time to “take stock” of how the different areas of your life have been moving along (or not!) since the previous Full Moon, then making appropriate changes or adjustments in order to create a better flow. The influence of Sagittarius places extra emphasis on the areas of learning, leadership (especially in guiding others), philosophy, celebration and a passion for living. Ask yourself where you can strengthen or improve these areas.

This Full Moon also brings an energy of healing/releasing as well as great opportunities for any practises in manifesting abundance, prosperity and goals (Law of Attraction, visualisation, Reiki affirmations etc.), so take 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.

A good way to connect with the energy today is through meditation. You can do your own, 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 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 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 (of course, feel free to use any other technique of distant Reiki, if you prefer). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

Regarding Jupiter turning “direct”, it’s now “full speed ahead” in the areas of learning, teaching and the deeper, more meaningful areas of life. These themes may seem familiar, if you go back to the first paragraph of today’s forecast. This is because Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius, so these themes are amplified today. This energy is joyful and light, so make time to enjoy the good things! Jupiter direct also brings an additional boost to any work with the Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc.

 

Saturday June 10th is a high-energy day filled with possibilities: you may feel yourself being challenged to change your habits in these areas, so instead of resisting, open yourself to trying something new! Ask yourself which of your key relationships can benefit from making some positive changes. Pay attention to the area of finance and listen to your intuition (or “gut instinct”)…. what changes or adjustments can help to increase the flow of wealth and abundance into your life? What changes or adjustments to your lifestyle or current spiritual practises can be made in order to advance spiritually? What old habits/attitudes need to be released in order to transform your life in a powerful and positive way?

 

Sunday June 11th we finish the week with a high-energy day very similar to what we experienced yesterday. Whether or not you choose to continue to work on any themes/ideas/issues that presented themselves yesterday, it’s a good idea to use the active energy in a positive way otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or even short-tempered. How about trying a fun, new activity? If weather permits, try to get outdoors and get moving… do something you enjoy!

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal
