Weekly Forecast, Feb. 19th – 25th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week we get an excellent start to the Lunar New Year with the start of a 10-day cycle of energy focused on increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity, as well as supporting deep emotional healing. There is great potential in the energy available as long as you harness it to your advantage, so please read on to find out how to do so:

Monday February 19th we begin the week a high-energy day that is the start of a special cycle of energy that lasts from today until the end of the month. Over the next 10 days, the focus is on abundance, prosperity and healing old emotional wounds. To make the best use of this energy for increasing prosperity and abundance, you can do the following:

Have clear goals and strategies for increasing prosperity, and take steps now towards reaching those goals (even if those steps are small!). Reflect upon how you see yourself in relation to abundance and prosperity: remember that when our energy is strong and positive, we tend to attract abundance! Do you see yourself as someone who easily attracts what you need, or do you see yourself as someone who is lacking while “other people” seem to get what they want? Do you feel undeserving or have past experiences made you feel like everything is a struggle? Practise daily visualisations using your intention and as many of your senses as possible… truly see and feel yourself as someone who easily attracts abundance. It can be helpful to repeat a positive statement like a mantra, something along the lines of “I now attract great abundance and prosperity. It flows into my life easily and I am able to share it with others”. It is very important to be consistent with any visualisations (this includes work with the Law of Attraction). If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it is a fantastic time to work on any Reiki affirmations relating to prosperity and abundance every day, especially over the next 10 days.

Regarding healing, it’s a very supportive time to work on resolving and releasing any old emotional wounds, especially those that may get “triggered” or pushed to the surface during this time. Very often we are conditioned by these old emotional traumas, causing the same situations to repeat themselves. Recognise that you have the choice to either let these experiences define you and hold you back, or to learn the lessons and move forward in life with lightness, freedom and gratitude. You can choose to react differently, to no longer have these “buttons” that can be pushed, but you will need to face these issues. Let go of any “victim mentality” and realise that only you are responsible for your state of well-being. Be loving, gentle and patient with yourself, as well as staying focused on your process of healing and letting go. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, try to do a full treatment every day during this special energy-cycle… or consider receiving treatments from a practitioner. This is a wonderful time for healing, so make the most of this opportunity!

 

Tuesday February 20th we will experience energy much like yesterday’s, so stay active and use the energy for your greatest benefit.

 

Wednesday February 21st we can expect a nice flow of energy in the areas of creative expression and inspiration. You may choose to use this energy by doing creative projects, but keep in mind that this inspirational energy can also be used in doing work on the inner-self.

 

Thursday February 22nd is a VERY high-energy day when we experience a peak in the 10-day cycle of energy related to abundance and prosperity. Make sure to take time to work on any visualisations concerning prosperity and abundance: 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.

 

Friday February 23rd we can expect a continuation of the energy we experienced yesterday, although not at quite the same powerful level. As we have had so much strong energy this week, today it’s a good idea to “take stock” of how you’re feeling. If you’re feeling positive and motivated, it indicates that you are flowing well with the energy. If, however, you’re feeling agitated or frustrated, it’s likely that you need to “ground” yourself. In this case, I recommend any type of grounding exercise, and you can get more information about grounding itself as well as various techniques to do so here: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/ A grounding meditation can also be very helpful, so here is the link to my free, guided meditation for grounding and energising: https://soundcloud.com/chantal-phillips/guided-meditation-grounding

If you find that you’re feeling overly-emotional or overly-sensitive, it’s likely a result of old emotional hurts being stirred up and coming to the surface. Rather than avoid these, make a conscious effort to heal and release them. The following is a self-healing technique that I have adapted from an Advanced Reiki Training method, so anyone can practise it:

1. Sit quietly and comfortably, breathing deeply and evenly as you prepare to contemplate each old or unresolved issue. You may want to work on one issue per “session” or multiple ones.

2. As you contemplate the issue, pay attention to any part(s) of the body that comes to mind.

3. Bring your attention to this area and imagine it filled with a dark fog (you may see a colour clearly, so work with that. Otherwise, imagine a dark grey fog). This “fog” is representative of the negative or stagnant energy resulting from the unresolved issue.

4. Now breathe in deeply and imagine a brilliant white mist entering your body through the top of your head and travelling to the part of the body that is filled with the grey fog.

5. As you exhale, imagine the grey fog leaving your body (you may choose to imagine breathing this out through the mouth, or intending/visualising that the grey fog is being released directly from the affected area.

6. Continue breathing in the white mist and breathing out the dark fog until you can no longer perceive/feel/imagine it (which indicates a clearing of the area).

7. Spend at least a few minutes filling the entire area with brilliant, white, light mist.

8. Acknowledge the lessons learned from the issue and give thanks.

During this exercise, I recommend placing the hands over the area that you are working on. Everyone has “chi” flowing from the hands, so this assists the healing process. If you are a Reiki (or other energy healing) practitioner, you will find that the energy flowing from the hands greatly assists this exercise.

 

Saturday February 24th is a high-energy day with the focus on abundance and prosperity, with an extra boost of energy supporting money-making activities. This energy is very active and dynamic, so put it to good use! Try to start the day with a prosperity visualisation exercise (this includes Reiki affirmations), and be receptive to new ideas and learning today, as this may be an inspirational part of the process.

 

Sunday February 25th is a very high-energy day when we experience another peak in the 10-day cycle of energy, but today’s focus is the aspect of healing. Here I’ll repeat the information regarding this: It’s a very supportive time to work on resolving and releasing any old emotional wounds, especially those that may get “triggered” or pushed to the surface during this time. Very often we are conditioned by these old emotional traumas, causing the same situations to repeat themselves. Recognise that you have the choice to either let these experiences define you and hold you back, or to learn the lessons and move forward in life with lightness, freedom and gratitude. You can choose to react differently, to no longer have these “buttons” that can be pushed, but you will need to face these issues. Let go of any “victim mentality” and realise that only you are responsible for your state of well-being. Be loving, gentle and patient with yourself, as well as staying focused on your process of healing and letting go.

If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, try to do a full treatment today or consider receiving a treatment from a practitioner. Whether or not you practise Reiki, the exercise for Healing and Releasing included in Friday’s forecast (above) can be very helpful.

 

Wishing all of you a powerful and positive week of growth and healing!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Feb. 12th – 18th 2018

Hello Everyone,

We have a very active week ahead, with great potential for action, change and healing. The big highlight of the week is the combination of the New Moon with solar eclipse energy that will be felt over Thursday and Friday. Friday also marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year, so I will be posting my special Forecast about this within the next few days. We also have a Master Energy day on Sunday! Remember that with all of this intense energy coming up, it is important to stay balanced and grounded in order to make the most of it, otherwise you can end up feeling agitated, overly-sensitive or “all over the place”. There is so much great potential this week, so let’s take a detailed look at what to expect and how to best use the energy:

Monday February 12th we begin the week with a day of active energy and strong intuition, so it’s a good time to act upon any intuitive guidance or flashes of intuition. It’s also a good idea to reflect upon what changes you can make to any routines in life, as this can inject fresh energy into them. One warning for today, though: the energy can cause those who are unbalanced to become overly-sensitive and easy to anger, so make sure you avoid people and situations that have the potential to “blow up”.

 

Tuesday February 13th we experience the first of an eight-day cycle of energy that is focused on the following areas: strengthening committed partnerships, using your talents and energy in working towards a higher cause (charitable work, mentorship etc.), as well as healing old emotional wounds that may get triggered or “pushed to the surface” during this energy cycle. In addition, you may also experience an increase in finances due to your hard work… a reward for your persistence! Although there will be other energetic influences going on over the next eight days, keep in mind that this cycle of energy will be a dominant theme.

 

Wednesday February 14th we can expect a positive flow of energy in the area of communication. Express yourself honestly and from the heart in order to make the most of this energy.

 

Thursday February 15th is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the New Moon in Aquarius. Technically, the peak of this New Moon occurs in Hong Kong in the early hours of the 16th, which heralds the start of the Lunar New Year. There is also a solar eclipse (visible only in Antarctica) coinciding with this New Moon, so the energetic effects of this will “super charge” the energy of the New Moon and will be felt strongly both today and tomorrow.

Any New Moon is a great time for new beginnings and fresh starts, but the influence of Aquarius places extra emphasis on the areas of being “true” to yourself and others, following your intuition, and helping others through using your unique talents. Feminine energy is also empowered, and there is great potential for healing any relationships issues/imbalances, addressing financial problems and clearing creative blockages.

A great way to more fully connect with today’s New 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 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 preferred method of sending Reiki by distance in order to connect with the Moon and its energy. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies.

 

Friday February 16th is a VERY high-energy day that marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year. Happy Year of the Dog! Today we can expect a continuation of the powerful energy that I wrote about in yesterday’s forecast: the potent combination of the Aquarius New Moon fired-up by the energy of the solar eclipse.

 

Saturday February 17th is a high-energy day when we experience the peak of the 8-day energy cycle that I wrote about in my forecast for Tuesday the 13th. Please refer to that forecast for information on how to best use the energy today.

 

Sunday February 18th we finish the week with a day of VERY high-energy! According to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (1+8+2+2+0+1+8= 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.

As this energy will be quite strong, it is important to keep busy and actively use it otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or irritable. Don’t let the strong energy manifest in these negative ways… use the energy to your advantage, instead!

 

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

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast, Feb. 5th – 11th 2018

Hello Everyone,

This week there is quite a mix, with days of strong energy interspersed with days of gentle, flowing energy. The highlight of the week is a “Master Energy” day on Friday, but make sure that you stay grounded and use the energy in a productive way so that you can avoid feeling agitated or short-tempered. The intuition will be stronger-than-usual this week, too, so pay attention to your inner-voice! So now let’s take a detailed look at the week ahead, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:

Monday February 5th the week begins with a day of rather “low-key” energy. Productivity is possible, but it’s a good idea to not overdo it by taking on too many tasks. The one thing to be aware of today is the importance of staying grounded and balanced emotionally. If you find yourself feeling overly-sensitive or moody, take time to ground yourself.

 

Tuesday February 6th we can expect strong energy flowing in the areas of creativity and relationships, and in taking a new approach in these two areas. The intuition will be especially strong, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” or any “signs”, particularly in the areas mentioned. It’s a good idea to start the day with meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive intuitive guidance throughout the day.

 

Wednesday February 7th the energy will be gentle and flowing, so it’s a good day to work on current projects and just “go with the flow” as much as possible, rather than starting new projects or trying to accomplish many tasks. As with Monday, be aware of staying grounded on the emotional level, otherwise you may find yourself idealising or daydreaming too much!

 

Thursday February 8th is a high-energy day giving us plenty of support in taking action with new ideas and plans, as well as providing lots of energy in the areas of inspiration and creativity. This is another day of extra-strong intuition, so remember to pay attention to your “gut instinct” , “inner-voice” or any signs. Make an effort to start the day with meditation, as this will enable you to be more aware and receptive to intuitive guidance throughout the day.

 

Friday February 9th 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 (9+2+2+0+1+8= 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.

As this energy will be quite strong, it is important to keep busy and actively use it otherwise you may find yourself feeling agitated or irritable. Don’t let the strong energy manifest in these negative ways… use the energy to your advantage, instead!

 

Saturday February 10th the stronger-than-usual intuition continues and we can expect strong, positive energy. It’s a great day for activities, being productive and also taking time to reflect upon any flashes of intuition that you have received this week and how you can use your talents and abilities to help others.

 

Sunday February 11th we finish the week with a day of energy that supports us in facing any challenges that may have recently arisen. Perhaps you have already received intuitive guidance this week in how to deal with these, so now is the time to put this guidance into action. Today is also a great one for personal development.

 

Wishing all of you a positive and productive week ahead!

Many blessings,

Chantal
