Weekly Forecast, Oct. 30th – Nov. 5th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we experience lots of active energy with good opportunities for healing, as well as increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity in your life. The highlight of the week is the Full Moon in Taurus on Saturday, but there is much to enjoy before the end of the week! So let’s take a look at what we can expect and how to make the most of the energy coming up:

Monday October 30th the week begins with a day of gentle, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to work on existing projects and “go with the flow” as much as possible.

 

Tuesday October 31st is a high-energy day with the focus on two areas: creating big changes through working for a higher cause, and increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life. Whichever of theses areas you choose to work on, the theme here is transformation. In working with increasing the flow of abundance/prosperity, try using a visualisation/intention technique such as Law of Attraction, or the following: sit quietly and visualise each of your abundance/prosperity goals in their completed forms. To make this exercise more effective, try to use as many of your senses as possible (feel, smell, hear etc.) when you visualise and truly intend that each goal is now achieved. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations related to abundance/prosperity.

 

Wednesday November 1st is a high-energy day with the focus on the areas of healing and increasing the flow of abundance. If your focus is healing, continue your work on any old/unresolved emotional wounds. In working with increasing abundance, remember that a combination of discipline and strategic planning can yield the best results. You should also try to take time to practise any methods of visualisation/intention regarding abundance (e.g. Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc.).

 

Thursday November 2nd the energy will be very supportive in the area of healing. It may be that you have recently been dealing with challenges that have brought up old emotional or mental wounds. In this case, rather than avoiding the issues it is the perfect time to work on healing and releasing them. This isn’t usually a pleasant process, but by facing our old issues (or our “shadow selves”) and healing them, we are able to shed our “old selves” and move forward in life with much more purpose, focus and optimism. Any form of energy healing can be very effective in this process (Reiki or other method), so use any method that you are drawn to. If you have already been working on your self-healing, today is a great one in which to feel more empowered as a healer. Perhaps you can consider assisting others with their healing process? The intuition is especially strong today, so allow it to guide you in giving/receiving healing.

 

Friday November 3rd we can expect active energy with great potential in the areas of creative expression, relationship healing (by being flexible and open to making small adjustments), personal empowerment and attracting prosperity/abundance. As with yesterday, the intuition will be stronger than usual, so allow it to guide you in using today’s energy to your highest benefit.

 

Saturday November 4th is a very high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Taurus. Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect on your current state of life and progress since the last Full Moon in order to make the appropriate changes/adjustments necessary for future progress and growth. The “earthy” influence of Taurus places extra emphasis on the areas of finances, personal possessions, connection to nature and perseverance. What can you release, or what changes or adjustments can you make in these areas in order to live a more balanced and empowered life?

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, then use the technique of “Beaming” (or whichever method of Distance Reiki you prefer). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

 

Sunday November 5th we finish the week with a day focused on thinking “out of the box”, reflection on “deeper” issues and exploring the world around you. Or perhaps you’d like to use this energy by trying something new. Whatever you choose to do, make it something interesting and outside the usual routine.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Oct. 23rd – 29th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we can expect a lot of strong energy, at times quite intense, which makes it all the more important to stay focused and consciously use the energy for its greatest potential. The highlight of the week is the only “Master Energy” day for the entire month of October, which occurs on Sunday. However, the rest of the week we can expect lots of energy focused on the areas of healing, increasing the flow of abundance into your life, and creating more harmony in significant relationships. Remember that by working on these areas, you have the potential to transform them! With that, let’s take a detailed look at the energy this week, how to use it and what to expect:

Monday October 23rd the week begins with a high-energy day with much potential. Firstly, there is good support for creativity and productivity, especially when the two are combined. Today’s energy may also feel quite intense as two other areas are highlighted: healing/releasing old emotional wounds, and clearing abundance/prosperity blockages. Take time for a healing practise (whether it’s energy healing or any other method you choose) so that you can release these old wounds that are still affecting you emotionally. This will enable you to transform and empower yourself and your relationships.

If you’ve been experiencing blockages in the area of abundance/prosperity, try a methodical approach in clearing these. Reflect upon your past in terms of attitudes and experiences related to abundance/prosperity. Although blockages in this area can sometimes be a result of current actions or lack of action (which are much easier to resolve by changing strategies and taking positive action), very often there are deep-rooted blockages that we may not be aware of until we reflect deeply upon them. In the past, perhaps you were made to feel that you didn’t deserve abundance or prosperity, that accumulation of wealth is a negative thing, that you aren’t “good enough” to enjoy a healthy flow of abundance etc. By identifying the blockage, you can then take steps to “clear it” and “reprogramme” your way of thinking.

 

Tuesday October 24th we can expect the same strong energy that we had yesterday, with most of it focused in the areas of healing and increasing the flow of abundance. It could be that you assist someone else in their process of healing, or you may choose to work on your own old, unresolved issues/hurts. In working with increasing abundance, the combination of discipline and strategic planning can yield the best results, especially in overcoming obstacles. It’s also a good idea to take time to practise any methods of visualisation/intention regarding abundance (e.g. Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc.).

 

Wednesday October 25th the energy should be a lot less intense than it has been for the past couple of days. Rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks, it’s a good idea to continue work on current projects or any other areas that you’ve been working on for the past two days.

 

Thursday October 26th is a day to work on your process of personal transformation through continued self-healing, creating more harmony and balance within significant relationships, and creating strategies and tapping into your sense of self-discipline in order to stay focused on them. If you find that self-discipline is an issue for you, it can be very helpful to incorporate just one type of spiritual practise into your life that you do every day. It could be as simple as 5-10 minutes of meditation every morning, a few minutes of energetic deep-breathing exercises, or even a quick Reiki self-treatment. Whatever you choose to practise, you’ll find that by doing it every day, your sense of self-discipline will begin to naturally increase and strengthen.

 

Friday October 27th we can enjoy strong, positive energy supporting the areas of communication (especially writing and speaking), creative self-expression and empowering relationships. With regards to relationships, reflect upon what changes or adjustments can be made in order to create a greater sense of harmony.

 

Saturday October 28th the energy will be focused in the areas of healing and increasing the flow of abundance. If your focus is healing, continue your work on any issues that have come to the surface this week. In working with increasing abundance, remember that the combination of discipline and strategic planning can yield the best results. You should also try to take time to practise any methods of visualisation/intention regarding abundance (e.g. Law of Attraction, Reiki affirmations etc.), or continue any work that you may be doing in releasing abundance blockages. There is also good potential today to receive inspired direction or “messages” regarding your process of transformation. So keep an open mind and see what comes up!

 

Sunday October 29th we finish the week with a high-energy day: the only “Master Energy” day for the entire month of October! 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+0+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 (especially those related to prosperity and abundance), 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.

 

Wishing all of you positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast Oct. 17th – 22nd 2017

Hello Everyone,

While the week got off to a relatively quiet start, the energy will increase steadily until the New Moon on Thursday. Although the New Moon is the highlight of the week, there is lots of active energy to look forward to. You’ll notice that much of the energy will be focused on the areas of relationships and creative expression, along with some great opportunities for healing old issues and releasing blockages. So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and how we can best use the energy coming up:

Tuesday October 17th the intuition will be stronger than usual and the energy is all about expressing yourself openly and honestly, but be aware of other people’s feelings and emotions during this process so that you can get your message across without causing any resentment or resistance. There is one small “warning” about today: do not act impulsively and be conscious about how you react to the words and actions of others. In this way, you can avoid any potential arguments or over-reactions. Listening to your intuition (or “gut instinct”) is a great way to make the most of today’s energy.

 

Wednesday October 18th is a high-energy day that supports us in reflecting on how our key relationships affect the following areas of life: creativity, spiritual practises, abundance and mental well-being, and then making changes or adjustments in these areas in order to create a state of harmony and balance where needed. Ask yourself the following questions about the relationships in your life so that you become aware of where changes/adjustments need to be made: Are they supportive in your creative and spiritual efforts and practises? Are they supportive emotionally? Do you create an abundant energy together, or do you find yourself drained (not just energetically, but also emotionally and financially)? Remember the importance of being discerning in terms of who you spend your time with: if there isn’t mutual support and things tend to be one-sided, it’s time to reconsider the relationship.

Today there is also good potential for healing, so take time for a full treatment (Reiki or other energy)!

 

Thursday October 19th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Libra. Any New Moon is an excellent time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Libra places special emphasis on the areas of relationships and creativity. What new energy can you bring to these areas? This energy also encourages us to express our true selves, so perhaps this is another aspect that you can bring to creativity and relationships. The intuition will be stronger than usual today, so make sure you listen to your “inner voice”. One small warning: today’s intense energy can bring unresolved issues to the surface. This can cause problems if the issues are ignored, but if you choose to actively work on healing and releasing them, there is great support for this today!

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 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 use your favourite method of Distance Reiki in order to send energy to the Moon. By doing this, you can connect directly with the lunar energy… a very interesting experience!

In addition to today’s New Moon energy, there is also great support today for strengthening significant relationships and expressing yourself creatively/artistically.

 

Friday October 20th we can expect a high-energy day with great potential in two areas: healing/releasing old emotional wounds, and clearing abundance/prosperity blockages. By taking time for a healing practise (whether it’s energy healing or any other method you choose), you can release these old wounds that are still affecting you emotionally, thereby enabling you to transform and empower yourself and your relationships. If you find that you are experiencing blockages in the area of abundance/prosperity, it’s time for a more methodical approach in clearing these. Reflect upon your past (going all the way back to childhood, if necessary!) in terms of attitudes and experiences related to abundance/prosperity. Although blockages in this area can sometimes be a result of current actions or lack of action (which are much easier to resolve by changing strategies and taking positive action), very often there are deep-rooted blockages that we may not be aware of until we reflect deeply upon them. In the past, perhaps you were made to feel that you didn’t deserve abundance or prosperity, that accumulation of wealth is a negative thing, that you aren’t “good enough” to enjoy a healthy flow of abundance etc.

Whatever this old, negative “programming”, you have the power to “re-programme”! This “re-programming” takes more than one day to achieve, but today is a great day to make a start. The key is consistency: take a few minutes every day to repeat a positive mantra, truly feeling and intending it’s power. For example, you might repeat something along the lines of “I now earn large amounts of money doing work that I love. With this money I am able to provide myself with an abundant lifestyle while also sharing with those in need”. If you are a Reiki 2 practitioner, you can make this exercise more powerful by creating a Reiki affirmation with your mantra, then applying energy to it while you repeat it.

 

Saturday October 21st is a high-energy day with the focus on relationships and creativity. As with the energy we experienced on Thursday, think about the changes you can make in order to bring more energy and harmony to these areas.

 

Sunday October 22nd we finish the week with a second day in a row to focus on relationships and creativity. As with yesterday, think about what you can do in order to empower these areas.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Oct. 9th – 15th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we can expect lots of high-energy days with the focus on transformation, especially in relationships and creativity. This process of change is not usually an easy one, so be prepared to look deeply at yourself, your actions and what you need to change within yourself in order to bring a strong flow of positive energy into every area of your life. There are also some good opportunities for increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance in to your life, so be sure to make the most of this! So let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead and what to expect:

Monday October 9th the week begins with a high-energy day that is all about personal transformation, creative expression, empowerment and relationships. Reflect upon any issues you may be experiencing within significant relationships, especially those that you find difficult to discuss. Harmonious, open communication is well-supported today, so this could be a good time to open up and speak from the heart with clarity and compassion. It’s also great day to focus on the heart chakra in order to heal and strengthen it. You can try a heart chakra meditation, or simply sit quietly with the hands over the heart chakra in the centre of the chest and breathe deeply and evenly, intending that with every inhalation the heart is opening and expanding. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you’ll find that the flow of Reiki greatly enhances this meditation. You can also try my free, guided meditation for the heart chakra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK-zIQIv0I4 or on SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips

 

Tuesday October 10th is a high-energy day that starts an 11-day cycle focused on experiencing change and transformation at an accelerated pace, especially in the areas of creativity, relationships and communication. In order to make the best use of this energy, it’s important to set aside some time today to think about what changes you would like to make in these areas. When you have clear points to focus on, you’ll find that the energy will be very supportive in your process of transformation.

 

Wednesday October 11th is a day to take a step back and reflect upon key areas of your life and how they are progressing (or not). Where things are flowing well, this is confirmation that you’re on the right track. However, if you feel “stuck” in any areas, it’s time to take a careful look at the situation. Perhaps you need to create a detailed strategy or “action plan” that you can stick to, or perhaps it’s time to reconsider the path or direction that you’re taking. Areas of difficulty indicate where changes need to be made, so pay attention and take appropriate action. In significant relationships, it’s a great day to discuss any issues with your partner in order for both of you to find ways to honour one another’s needs.

 

Thursday October 12th is a high-energy day with the focus on increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance in your life. In order to make the most of this energy, strategic planning combined with energy/visualising exercises for increasing prosperity should be used. Sit quietly and visualise each of your prosperity/abundance 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 prosperity/abundance Reiki affirmations.

In addition to this, today is also a great one for productivity, learning, problem-solving and communication.

 

Friday October 13th is a high-energy day that has the potential for deep healing, especially old wounds and physical health problems. However, be aware that as this energy has the potential to bring old issues to the surface in order to be healed/released, refusal to face and deal with these issues can create many difficulties. If you are experiencing many challenges at the moment, it’s important to take a step back and be honest with yourself about whether or not you are truly dealing with your root issues.

 

Saturday October 14th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 11-day energy cycle I wrote about in the October 10th forecast. The focus is on experiencing change and transformation at an accelerated pace, especially in the areas of creativity, relationships and communication. In order to make the best use of this energy, it’s important to set aside some time today to think about what changes you would like to make in these areas. When you have clear points to focus on, you’ll find that the energy will be very supportive in your process of transformation.

 

Sunday October 15th we finish the week with a day of strong intuition and great potential for breakthroughs and inspirational ideas. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and intuitive ideas throughout the day. Today there is also good potential for healing any old emotional wounds, so if you found anything coming to the surface on Friday, it’s a great day to continue work on these in order to heal and release.

 

Wishing all of you a powerful and transformational week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, October 2nd – 8th 2017

Hello Everyone,

We have some good opportunities coming up this week in the areas of relationship healing, action, spiritual transformation and progression, and creativity. The highlight is the Aries Full Moon on Thursday, which brings a fiery and active energy. So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week and how to make the best use of the energy:

Monday October 2nd the energy will be focused in the area of relationships, especially significant ones. Take time to reflect upon any issues you may be experiencing within these, especially ones that you find difficult to discuss. Harmonious, open communication is well-supported today, so this could be a good time to open up and speak from the heart with clarity and compassion. Today is also great for focusing on the heart chakra in order to heal and strengthen it. You can try a heart chakra meditation, or simply sit quietly with the hands over the heart chakra in the centre of the chest and breathe deeply and evenly, intending that with every inhalation the heart is opening and expanding. If you are a Reiki practitioner, you’ll find that the flow of Reiki greatly enhances this meditation. You can also try my free, guided meditation for the heart chakra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WK-zIQIv0I4 or on SoundCloud https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips

 

Tuesday October 3rd we can expect a day of active energy and lots of support in the areas of creativity, productivity and relationship empowerment/transformation. It’s a day to act upon your inspirational ideas as well as putting energy into current projects. Regarding relationships, positive and healthy ones receive a big boost, while any problematic areas can be transformed through harmonious action and communication.

 

Wednesday October 4th the energy has great potential for spiritual practises/transformation as well as creative expression. Make sure to take time for whichever spiritual practise you prefer (Reiki practitioners, take time for a full treatment!) as they will be especially effective today, and allow yourself to express your inspired creativity in whatever form it takes. However, be aware that if you don’t consciously use today’s energy in a positive way, it can manifest in a negative sense: trying to escape reality (particularly through drug/alcohol use), having a “victim mentality” and not taking responsibility for one’s actions. So pay attention, use the energy for your benefit and be more discerning about the people you spend time with (and the places where you spend time, too!). Do these people/places lift you up? Inspire you in positive ways? Inspire you to be your best? Leave you feeling positive and energised? If you answer “no” to any of these questions, it’s time to stop fooling yourself: take responsibility and limit/stop taking time with those people and places.

 

Thursday October 5th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Full Moon in Aries. Any Full Moon is a good time to reflect on your current state of life and progress since the last Full Moon in order to make the appropriate changes/adjustments necessary for future progress and growth. The fiery influence of Aries places extra emphasis on the areas of action, assertiveness, entrepreneurship and physical exercise. What changes or adjustments can you make in these areas in order to live a healthier and more empowered life?

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, then use the technique of “Beaming” (or whichever method of Distance Reiki you prefer). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

Although the Full Moon will actually reach its peak at 2:40am here in Hong Kong on Friday the 6th, the Mid-Autumn Festival public holiday on Thursday the 5th gives us lots of time to enjoy the Moon. As is traditional here on this day, try getting together with friends and loved ones 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.

 

Friday October 6th the intuition will be especially strong and we can expect lots of inspirational ideas, creative thinking and great potential for accessing your inner-knowledge and higher-self. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and flashes of intuition throughout the day. It’s important to have a state of inner-silence in order to be able to hear/receive information!

 

Saturday October 7th we have a day of active, bright energy with the focus on creativity and spiritual practises (especially those related to spiritual awakening). The intuition continues to be stronger than usual, so as with yesterday try to start the day with meditation and pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any “signs”.

 

Sunday October 8th we finish the week with energy that is very supportive of harmonious communication and relationships. This makes it an ideal day to reflect upon the state of your relationships: what challenges need to be addressed through harmonious communication? Remember that confrontation does not need to be a part of “sorting out” problems or challenges! By communicating clearly, calmly and from the heart, much can be resolved and worked on today.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
