Weekly Forecast, Dec. 26th – 31st 2017

Hello Everyone,

After all of the very intense energy of last week, this week things will be much quieter and relaxed energetically. Christmas Day started the week with energy that was focused on relationships, especially bringing harmony and healing to ones that have needed it… I just hope that this was a positive thing for all of you, rather than resulting in the “dramas” that can be so common during holiday times when all family members come together. The highlights this week occur on Wednesday and Thursday, with some great energy to be used for personal transformation as well as increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity. However, the rest of the week will be very laid-back. Allow yourself the time to let go, relax and enjoy! So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect this week:

Tuesday December 26th is a day of gentle, flowing energy. This is not a day for rushing around or trying to accomplish many tasks. Rather, just “go with the flow” as much as possible and try to spend the day doing enjoyable activities… or perhaps just relaxing and making the most of it. Tomorrow the energy will be much stronger, so you can save any big activities for then.

 

Wednesday December 27th is a 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 (2+7+1+2+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. This is our last “Master 22” day of 2017, so make an effort to use the energy to your advantage.

In addition to this “Master” energy, today the intuition will be especially strong and we are supported in creating strategies for increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance into our lives. Listen to your “gut instinct” and pay attention to any flashes of inspiration: unconventional approaches are the ones that should pay off in your strategy making. This is also very useful in creating your plans and goals for 2018 with regards to abundance/prosperity.

 

Thursday December 28th there will be a strong flow of energy supporting any practises that combine energy work and physical activity, for example: tai chi, yoga, qigong, ecstatic dance or any other practise that you may prefer and enjoy. All of these activities get an extra “kick” of energy today, making them even more enjoyable and satisfying. This process is also wonderful for personal transformation.

 

Friday December 29th is the first of three days of gentle, flowing energy. Allow yourself time to relax and enjoy this day.

 

Saturday December 30th we have the second day of gentle, flowing energy. Perfect for just “going with the flow”!

 

Sunday December 31st we finish the year with a day of “laid-back”, flowing energy. The New Year will start with lots of active energy, so you may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on. As with the past couple of days, try to avoid rushing around or accomplishing many tasks. This is day for relaxed enjoyment, so make the most of it!

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Dec. 18th – 24th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week’s Forecast is quite a detailed and lengthy one due to all of the exciting activity ahead: The New Moon and the Winter Solstice in particular. There is a great abundance of powerful, active energy coming up this week! However, focus your attention and consciously work with the energy… do not over-do things or else you risk getting burned out. As there is much to share with you, let’s get right to it:

Monday December 18th the week begins with a VERY high-energy day! Today we experience the potent combination of a Sagittarius New Moon with a “Master” energy day: very powerful indeed! There is so much potential today, so let’s break it down one by one: Any New Moon is an ideal time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Sagittarius places extra emphasis on the areas of exploration, celebration, enjoyment, philosophy and spirituality. Which of these areas would you like to “fire up” and empower? Today is a great day to make a start. The active and fiery energy of Sagittarius should be handled carefully, though. Make sure that you don’t take on too many tasks or commitments (leading to “burn out”), and avoid forcing your ideas or beliefs upon others.

There is also great potential for healing today, especially in healing/releasing old emotions that may have been kept “bottled up” for a long time. As the year draws to close, it may be that you have faced many challenges that have resulted in this “repressed energy” now being pushed to the surface in order to be cleared. Allow yourself the time for a full self-treatment (Reiki or other energy healing) or receive a treatment from a practitioner, so that you may prepare to start the New Year in a clearer and more empowered state. In fact, all healing practises are strongly supported today, both for the healer and the recipient.

A good way to connect with the energy today is through meditation. You can do your own, choose to meditate on new beginnings, 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.

In addition to the Sagittarian New Moon energies, today we are also encouraged to look at areas in our life where we may feel like we’re being blocked. These “blocks” are clear indications that we are not pursuing a path that serves our highest good. It’s time for a new approach and focusing on paths that are in harmony with our highest good, resulting in a dissolving of the blockages. The intuition will be especially strong today, so listen to it and allow it to guide you in finding a more harmonious approach.

Today is also a wonderful one for supporting relationships (especially in the area of clear communication), creativity and also increasing the flow of prosperity and abundance into your life. Remember to choose the area(s) you’d like to work on so that you can focus your energy and intent in order to make the most of the supportive energy available.

An important point to remember: all activities you work on today will be greatly energised because of the combination of the New Moon and the Master energy vibration!

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+8+1+2+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.

 

 

Tuesday December 19th we can expect a high-energy day with a continuation of some of yesterday’s themes, such as identifying any areas of life where you may be feeling “blocked” and recognising that these blockages are a sign that you are not flowing in accordance with your highest good. At the same time, areas where you ARE flowing with your highest good will receive lots of support. The energy will continue to be active, enabling you to make advances with projects and in accomplishing tasks… but remember not to overdo it by taking on too many things at the same time. The intuition will be especially strong today, so listen to your “gut feeling” and pay attention to any “signs”. Allow your intuition to guide you in taking action today.

 

 

Wednesday December 20th we can expect a strong flow of energy supporting the areas of creative and artistic expression, as well as good potential for improving finances through innovative or creative means. Healing is also strongly supported today, especially healing/releasing old emotional wounds as well as aspects of the “shadow self”. These “shadow self” aspects can often be identified through being triggered (this is when they are revealed). If someone is able to “press your buttons”, it’s time to recognise what those “buttons” are and what the root cause is. Most often, the root cause is fear. When the issues have been healed and released, you’ll find that these “buttons” no longer exist to be “pushed”. Take time for a full healing session today, and remember to pay attention to your intuition and allow it to guide you through any of the aforementioned areas.

 

 

Thursday December 21st marks the day of the Winter Solstice for some parts of the world, whereas here in Hong Kong we will experience the Solstice tomorrow (the 22nd). If you live in a location where the Solstice occurs today, please read tomorrow’s special Solstice forecast for details on how to make the best use of the energy. Regardless of your location, we can expect the following energetic influences (even in addition to the Solstice energy):
Today expect an abundance of light, bright, positive energy as well as great support in the areas of creative inspiration, spiritual expansion and divine awareness.

 

 

Friday December 22nd is a VERY high-energy day. The energy is very powerful on this day of the Winter Solstice (the Summer Solstice for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere), so it’s a great idea to set aside time for some special meditation, or even a group activity. Whatever you do, be conscious of this energy so that you may fully make the most of it!
Winter Solstice has been celebrated in cultures the world over for thousands of years as a celebration of Light and the rebirth of the Sun. The extended hours of darkness experienced over the Winter Solstice marks a time of going within, in order to renew ourselves in preparation for the birth to come. For those of you living in the Southern Hemisphere, you will experience the Summer Solstice, but it is still a great opportunity to celebrate transition and positive change.

The energy today is VERY helpful for meditation and insight, and the intuition is very strong. Use this day to contemplate upon the past year, and ask yourself the following questions:

When were the times when I was most out-of-balance?
When did I feel that nothing was going right? (Write these down, and see what fears resulted in your refusal to change, even though you were being ‘pushed’ to do so)
What patterns have I been pushed to change?
Have I been creating strategies in order to focus my energy and purpose?
Am I living in harmony with my higher purpose?
Which personal judgements do I make that limit my personal and spiritual growth?
What are my greatest fears, and how have they been challenged this year?

With these answers, you can do the following:

CREATE A MOMENT OF RE-BIRTH! You can use the answers to the above questions to help you create clear and solid goals and strategies. The energy of the Winter Solstice equates to huge potential for change, release and growth!

You can also do a ‘ritual’ to release the negative energy, fears, etc. by burning the paper upon which you have written your answers to the above questions. Write down everything as clearly as possible; really express your inner-self. Then, sitting quietly and comfortably, breathe deeply and evenly. Begin reading from your list, preferably aloud: say “I completely and joyfully release…..” and then read your answers. For example, “I completely and joyfully release the fear I feel when things aren’t going my way”. Or, “I completely and joyfully release the anger I express whenever I feel my ego being challenged” etc…

When you are done, it is time to burn the paper. Have a fire-safe dish (a steel cooking pot etc.) ready. Set the paper alight, and place it in the fire-safe container… as it burns, strongly intend or feel that all of your fears, issues etc., are also being burned and purified. Feel the sense of release, and of the sense of re-birth… NOW is the time for a new start!

If you prefer, you can create an object that represents your fears, issues etc., and then burn it instead of the paper.

You are strongly recommended to meditate today, ideally outdoors (weather permitting). These meditations can be done any time, but the energy of the Winter Solstice will be ‘peaking’ at night. The following are two meditations that will allow you to tap into the incredible energies of today.

Meditation 1

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 Divine source, filling you and energising every cell of your body with every breath. 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, 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.

Meditation 2

Begin by sitting quietly, breathing deeply and evenly, feeling yourself relax with every breath (for energy-workers, place the hands over the heart chakra, or 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!

There will be many group meditations taking place world-wide, so there may be something going on your neighbourhood. It’s worthwhile checking these out, or you can get together with your friends for a special meditation, or you can just do your own thing.

There are many who feel that tomorrow is not only a day for celebrating the Winter Solstice and the energies it brings, it is also significant because it presents a special opportunity for all of humankind to raise its energetic vibration, if one chooses to tap into this energy. If you would like to join one of the worldwide meditations, I suggest that you go online and do a search for “winter solstice meditations”…this way you can also get an idea of when these meditations are taking place, so that no matter where you live you will be able to synchronise your meditation with these groups.

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. Embrace the changes, go with it, consciously let go of the “old”. At this time, I urge 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!

One more event worth noting also occurs today: Mercury turns “direct” after being retrograde since December 3rd. It’s time to move forward with any new ventures that you may have put on hold during the retrograde period (including contract signings and major purchases). As for any insights you may have gained over the past three weeks related to efficiency, responsibilities and good time management… it’s time to put these into action, too!

 

Saturday December 23rd the energy will be much more gentle and flowing than it has been for the past few days. Think of it as a bit of “breathing space” after so much activity! Although there are many who will be rushing around today to finish any last-minute tasks before the Christmas holidays begin, I wouldn’t recommend this. Ideally, take things at a slower pace today and set aside time to reflect upon any experiences or insights that you may have gained during the Winter Solstice.

 

Sunday December 24th we finish the week with a day of harmonious energy and lots of support in the areas of creative inspiration, spiritual practises and any activities that allow you to connect with the “divine” energy that exists within everything.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead and a magical Winter Solstice!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Dec. 11th – 17th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we can expect lots of active energy due to a 6-day cycle of energy that starts on Tuesday. This energy is great for productivity, creativity, self-expression, healing and increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life. There are also good opportunities this week for bringing more balance and satisfaction to your relationships. We do have a couple of “quieter” days thrown into the mix, but overall it should be a very positive (if very busy) week. So now let’s take a detailed look at what we can expect each day and how to make the best use of the energy:

Monday December 11th 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 continue work on current projects and not try to “overdo” things.

 

Tuesday December 12th is a high-energy day with the emphasis on increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life, self-expression, creativity and harmonious communication. To work on the flow of abundance and prosperity, it is important to have clear goals in these areas and then create a strategy in order to maintain your focus in reaching them. Listen to any intuitive “flashes” and be open to taking action in the area of increasing prosperity. You can assist this process by using intention and visualisation techniques (Reiki 2 affirmations, Law of Attraction etc.). With regards to self-expression and creativity, be assertive in sharing your ideas. If you find that you have been holding back in these areas, it’s time to let go of those old fears and really go for it! The aspect of harmonious communication can assist you in healing old emotional wounds within relationships. Speak from the heart with compassion and clarity, and recognise where you need to actively work on healing and releasing old issues. The influence of today’s energy and its themes will be felt over the next week, so use this time well to work on these areas.

 

Wednesday December 13th is a high-energy day when we experience a continuation of yesterday’s energy and themes. However, today we can expect additional boost in the area of personal energy and vitality. This can help to boost productivity, so make the most of the energy by keeping busy and actively working on the areas mentioned in yesterday’s forecast.

 

Thursday December 14th we can expect a day of more gentle, flowing energy. Although not as productive as yesterday’s energy, you can still continue work on current projects (including the themes mentioned relating to the past couple of days). However, today isn’t one for starting new projects or pushing yourself too hard. Don’t push yourself too the limit, and just “go with the flow” as much possible.

 

Friday December 15th is a high-energy day, the peak of the energy cycle mentioned in my Tuesday forecast. Those themes will be even more empowered today, so make sure to use the energy to your advantage! Here is the information again: the emphasis is on increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life, self-expression, creativity and harmonious communication. To work on the flow of abundance and prosperity, it is important to have clear goals in these areas and then create a strategy in order to maintain your focus in reaching them. Listen to any intuitive “flashes” and be open to taking action in the area of increasing prosperity. You can assist this process by using intention and visualisation techniques (Reiki 2 affirmations, Law of Attraction etc.). With regards to self-expression and creativity, be assertive in sharing your ideas. If you find that you have been holding back in these areas, it’s time to let go of those old fears and really go for it! The aspect of harmonious communication can assist you in healing old emotional wounds within relationships. Speak from the heart with compassion and clarity, and recognise where you need to actively work on healing and releasing old issues. In fact, today is a wonderful day for healing, so take time for a full self-treatment (Reiki or other energy-healing) or arrange to receive a treatment from a practitioner.

 

Saturday December 16th the energy will be focused on the area of relationships, particularly in the area of equality. Is there a fair “balance of power” within your significant relationships? This applies to both work and romantic relationships. Whatever your role in the relationship (equal, dominant or submissive), it is important that you feel comfortable with it. If not, it’s time to communicate in order to bring about a state that is comfortable for everyone involved. As harmonious communication is supported today, it’s the ideal time to take action with this.

 

Sunday December 17th we finish the week with a day of strong energy focused on the area of significant love relationships, especially the theme of bringing more joy, lightness and adventurousness into them. As the intuition and harmonious communication have been so well-aspected this week, put these to good use today in assisting you in the process of improving and strengthening your relationship. Aside from this, as we will experience strong and active New Moon energy tomorrow, you may already feel this “active” energy today. Make use of it by staying busy doing activities that you enjoy.

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Dec. 4th – 10th 2017

Hello Everyone,

This week we have great opportunities for productivity and healing: an interesting balance of working on the physical/material as well as the emotional and spiritual areas of life. As the year draws to a close, it’s the ideal time to heal and release old emotional traumas in order to start the New Year with fresh, positive energy. In working with the physical/material side, creating strategies and goals is also very important in making the best use of the energy (as well as starting the New Year with a strong direction). Whatever you choose to work on, start this process now by using the energy available this week. So let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to use the energy to your advantage:

Monday December 4th the week begins with a day of bright and active energy. Some will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s Super Full Moon, so if you find yourself feeling restless or agitated, it’s important to keep busy today and use the energy. For others, the Super Full Moon may have pushed old, unresolved issues to the surface. If this is the case for you, allow yourself the time to reflect upon what has been revealed and how you can best heal and release these issues.

 

Tuesday December 5th the energy will be focused in the area of healing, both receiving and giving. This is an excellent opportunity to work on healing and releasing any unresolved emotional issues, especially ones that may have been recently “triggered” or pushed to the surface. If you are a Reiki (or other energy-healing practitioner), make sure you set aside time for a full self-treatment. You might also consider receiving a treatment from a practitioner, particularly if you feel that you need assistance in your healing process.

 

Wednesday December 6th is a high-energy day with the emphasis on increasing the flow of abundance into your life, self-expression, creativity and productivity. To work on the area of abundance, it is important to have goals and then create a strategy in order to maintain your focus in reaching them. You can assist this process by using intention and visualisation techniques (Reiki 2 affirmations, Law of Attraction etc.). With regards to self-expression and creativity, be assertive in sharing your ideas. If you find that you have been holding back in these areas, it’s time to let go of those old fears and really go for it! As the energy today is also very active, it’s a great day to be productive: inject fresh energy into your projects, “tick the boxes” on any to-do lists and enjoy a sense of vitality.

 

Thursday December 7th we can expect a day of positive, flowing energy. Rather than starting new projects, it’s a good idea to continue working on any tasks or projects that you may have worked on yesterday.

 

Friday December 8th the energy will be focused outwards rather than inwards. Basically, this means that we should use this energy to think about how we can assist or support others (rather than focusing on ourselves). How can you best use your talents and abilities to empower others? It could be through volunteer work, mentorship programmes or anything else related to a higher cause.

 

Saturday December 9th is a 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 (9+1+2+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.

Please note that today there is also emphasis on the area of spirituality and spiritual practises. Any activities in this area will be greatly empowered and enhanced.

 

Sunday December 10th we finish the week with a day of strong intuition and an abundance of energy focused on the area of healing. I recommend starting the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance throughout the day. As healing is supported, especially the healing of old, unresolved emotional issues, it’s a great idea to take time for a full healing session (Reiki or other energy healing). Any spiritual practises that strengthen your connection to your higher-self is also well-supported today. The only things to be aware of today in order to avoid them are laziness and over-indulging: use the energy, don’t waste it!

 

Wishing all of you a productive, positive and healing week.

Many blessings,

Chantal
