This week is filled with very powerful energy: Master Energy, new cycles of energy beginning, a Full Moon and the Winter Solstice! I will be posting a special Winter Solstice note within the next couple of days, but for now let’s take a look at the week ahead and how we can make the most of this very potent energy:
Monday December 17th we start the week with a VERY high-energy day as we experience the start of a 6-week cycle of energy focused on listening to your intuition in being guided on your life-path, moving forward in life with enthusiasm and inspiration, allowing challenges in your life to inspire you to think big and “out of the box” (rather than being “brought down” by challenges), being open to changing your outlook and beliefs, as well as higher learning and teaching. It’s a really great energy cycle for bringing in the New Year, so be aware of it and consciously use it for a positive start! This energy is also very supportive for personal vitality, leadership, creativity, spiritual practises and taking initiative.
In addition to the above, according to numerology this day has special energetic significance because the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (1+7+1+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, 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 18th is a high-energy day when we will still be experiencing the effects of yesterday’s strong energy, although not as intensely. Please refer to yesterday’s forecast for information on how to best use this energy for today.
Wednesday December 19th the energy can either be empowering or difficult, depending on how you decide to consciously use it. On the difficult side, it is likely for old, unresolved issues to get triggered. Rather than giving in to dramas and negative reactions, try to stay calm and reflect upon what is being triggered and why. This awareness will then allow you to work on healing and releasing any issues, so think of these triggers as teachers rather than feeling like a victim. However, on the positive side, the energy today can also be very empowering for healing, providing guidance to others, and working with manifesting techniques such as the Law of Attraction or Reiki Affirmations. To work on manifesting your goals, 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. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s an especially powerful day to work on your Reiki affirmations.
Thursday December 20th we can expect the energy to be light, bright and very supportive in encouraging us to express our true selves and standing out from the crowd. It’s also great for increasing our sense of spiritual awareness, and sharing this wisdom with others. Remember that today is not just for celebrating our own unique personalities and gifts, it’s for celebrating others’ too!
Friday December 21st is a high-energy day with lots of support in the areas of creativity, spiritual practises, healing practises and connecting more deeply with your higher-self. There is also great support for increasing the flow of abundance and prosperity into your life, especially if you use visualisation/energy techniques such as Reiki Affirmations, Law of Attraction or other manifesting techniques, so make sure to 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.
However, you should also be aware that this energy may cause old, unresolved issues to get triggered. As I advised in the Wednesday forecast, rather than giving in to dramas and negative reactions, try to stay calm and reflect upon what is being triggered and why. This awareness will then allow you to work on healing and releasing any issues, so think of these triggers as teachers rather than feeling like a victim.
It is also important to note that today is the Winter Solstice in certain parts of the world. Please click on the following link to find out when the Solstice will occur in your area: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20181221T2223&msg=December Solstice 2018 Here in Hong Kong, the Solstice occurs tomorrow. Please refer to tomorrow’s forecast for information on the Solstice, and apply that information if you will be experiencing it today.
Saturday December 22nd is a VERY high-energy day when we will experience a very magical combination of both the Winter Solstice and the Full Moon in Cancer, as well as the start of two special energy cycles.
Regarding the Full Moon, any Full Moon is a good time for “taking stock” and reflecting upon how your life has been flowing since the last Full Moon, as well as seeing what changes or adjustments need to made in order to create a more harmonious flow. However, this Full Moon in Cancer places special emphasis on the areas of family, home, security, following your intuition, assisting others and healing old, unresolved issues. Reflect upon these areas and ask yourself what changes or adjustments can you make. You should also bear in mind that the intense energy may trigger old, unresolved issues, so remember to stay calm and centred and see the opportunity for healing yourself rather than getting upset or “playing the victim”. Take responsibility for your own healing process, and you’ll feel much more empowered for it!
To make the most of today’s Full Moon energy, try doing a special meditation. You can do your own meditation, or choose to meditate on all you have to be grateful for in your life, or you can do a Full Moon meditation in the following 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. In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies. Of course, you can use any method of sending Reiki by distance, so go with whatever you prefer.
Regarding the Winter Solstice, there is a lot of information that I would like to share, so I will be posting a special Winter Solstice note within the next couple of days. For now, I will share the most basic points of the energy of this particular Solstice. For the next month, the energy encourages maturity, productivity and responsibility. It’s all about planning your work, sticking to that plan and using your time wisely. However, make sure you avoid the “dark side” of this energy, which includes working too hard (all work and no play, leading to a state of “burn-out”) and cutting yourself off from others emotionally. This Solstice also empowers spiritual awakening, inspired creativity and revolutionary transformation.
Regarding the two other energy cycles beginning today: the first one is a long one, it will last from today until the beginning of April. The focus of this particular cycle is strategy-making, practical creativity, wisdom and developing more tact and better negotiating skills. The intuition will be strong, so allow it to guide you in the areas that you would like to strengthen. Make sure that your actions are in harmony with your higher purpose, and take practical action.
The second energy cycle starts today and ends in the beginning of February. This cycle is focused on greater financial opportunities (especially when working in a partnership), increasing or strengthening your services in healing or mentoring, as well as lots of support for healing within committed relationships. In all of these areas, the best results will be gained by approaching things with a sense of love and practicality.
Sunday December 23rd will be a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the energetic effects of yesterday’s very powerful energy. Committed partnerships get an extra boost of positive energy, as well as working with Reiki Affirmations, Law of Attraction or other techniques for manifesting greater abundance and prosperity. Spiritual practises also get lots of energetic support.
Wishing all of you an empowered and magical week ahead!
