Weekly Forecast Dec. 19th – 25th 2016

Hello Everyone,

We have a very excited week coming up, with lots of strong and positive energy! The highlights this week include a Master Energy day, Mercury turning retrograde until the beginning of January and the Winter Solstice on Wednesday. There are great opportunities for personal transformation, productivity, increasing abundance and prosperity and just overall enjoyment! So let’s take a detailed look at this week, what to expect and how to make the most of the energy:

Monday December 19th we begin the week with a high-energy day and plenty of active energy. Today’s big events: “Master” energy as well as Mercury turning retrograde until January 8th, 2017. 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+9+1+2+2+0+1+6= 22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is ideal for taking action and furthering work on existing projects and goals (building your future). 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.

Now let’s discuss Mercury retrograde: Mercury retrograde often gets a “bad rap” because of the likelihood of problems and mix-ups in the areas of communication, travel and technology. However, this can actually be a great time to sort out shortcomings and “blind spots” as these issues are revealed. During the time of Mercury retrograde, it’s advisable to double-check and reconfirm all travel plans, back up all electronic data, be clear with all forms of communication and avoid (if possible) signing new contracts. If you must sign new contracts, be very careful to check all of the details and fine print.

As mentioned previously, you can also use this time to grow: if you do experience difficulties, pay attention to what you need to learn. Do you need to improve your communication skills? Are you prone to rushing into things without checking details? Are you expressing yourself clearly and with compassion? Do you need to listen more carefully to others? Perhaps there are also lessons in being more patient with others and not jumping to conclusions.

Working on the inner self is strongly supported during a time of Mercury retrograde. Use this time wisely by being aware of when your buttons are being pushed and then clearing the root issue that causes this reaction in the first place.

Tuesday December 20th we experience a bit of a “lull” between yesterday’s strong energy and tomorrow’s Winter Solstice. Although you may notice the energy increasing as the day goes on, today is best-suited to continuing work on current projects and preparing for tomorrow by taking time to pause and reflect upon the past year: the ups and downs, what you have accomplished and what you would like to work on in the coming year.

Wednesday December 21st is a VERY high-energy day when we experience the Winter Solstice.

The energy is very powerful today (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?

What have I released or still need to release to further my process of transformation?

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 this Winter Solstice equates to huge potential for revolutionary transformation!

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 any of the above questions that involve “release”. 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. 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 energies) 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 oneness, 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 today 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 their energetic vibration, if they choose 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. So 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!

 

Thursday December 22nd is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling the effects of yesterday’s Winter Solstice. In addition, there is lots of support today in the areas of creative expression, productivity and spiritual practises.

 

Friday December 23rd is a day of light, bright energy filled with great potential for inspiration and productivity. So keep busy, but make it enjoyable and keep the focus fun!

 

Saturday December 24th the intuition will be stronger than usual and there will be a continuation of yesterday’s “productive” energy. Remember to stay focused on enjoyable activities and you will feel energised rather than stressed-out.

 

Sunday December 25th is a day of strong, positive energy. This energy is very much focused on the areas of abundance (appreciating the abundance in your life as well as increasing the flow of it through practising gratitude and energy techniques such as using Reiki affirmations and visualisations), creative expression, prosperity and strengthening relationships.

 

Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead, and a blessed Solstice and Christmas time!

Many blessings,

Chantal

Weekly Forecast June 20th – 26th 2016

Hello Everyone,
What an incredible week we have ahead! Here in Hong Kong we get two VERY high-energy days in a row to start the week: The Full Moon on Monday and the Summer Solstice on Tuesday. For other countries, please check the following link for exact dates and times of these events in your area: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20160620T2234&msg=June%20Solstice%202016 We also experience a day of “Master Energy” later in the week as well as other days of high-energy. With every day this week being filled with either strong or very strong energy, it is very important to stay grounded and focused and take action in the areas mentioned in detail in the forecast below. Otherwise, you will likely find yourself feeling agitated, “blocked” or “all over the place”. Staying grounded will assist you greatly in making the most of the fantastic energy this week. If you are a Reiki (or other healing energy) practitioner, take time every morning to apply energy to the first chakra, legs and soles of feet. Tai Chi and Qigong are also very effective grounding practises. For more information on grounding techniques that everyone can practise, as well as the link to my free, guided meditation for energising and grounding, please read the article which I have written on grounding: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding/
Summer Solstice2  Full Moon Sagittarius2
Monday June 20th the week begins with a day of VERY high-energy as we experience the Full Moon in Sagittarius. The time of any Full Moon is one in which it is good to reflect upon what we have accomplished since the previous Full Moon and what changes or adjustments we can make in order to walk more fully upon our chosen paths. The influence of Sagittarius places additional emphasis on the areas of philosophy, life purpose, enthusiasm, joy, learning and teaching.
Are there important lessons that you need to learn or teach (especially in the areas of philosophy, spirituality and life-path)? Are you experiencing lots of enthusiasm and joy in your life? Are you open to learning and experiencing new things? The answers to these questions can assist you in making the necessary changes/adjustments that will enrich these areas of your life. To more fully connect with the energy today, it’s a good idea to practise a Full Moon meditation. You can do your own or choose to meditate on the points mentioned above or all you have to be grateful for in your life. You can also do a Full Moon meditation in the following ways:
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 (or use any other method of sending Reiki that you prefer, such as using a photo). In this way, you can tap directly into these lunar energies. It’s also a great idea to get together with friends 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.
Furthermore, bear in mind that there will be an additional “boost” of energy in releasing old attachments and habits (especially that which is uncomfortable to face!). Healing is also strongly supported, so try to take time for a full energy-healing session (Reiki or other healing energy), as much can be released and healed today.
Additionally, there are wonderful opportunities to bring balance to significant relationships (romantic or otherwise). It’s time for open communication from the heart, on both sides, in order to strengthen relationships. Are you fulfilled in your relationships? Can you express yourself openly and without fear of judgement? Do your support each other and take joy in one another’s success and strengths? The answers to these questions can assist both parties in strengthening and enriching the relationship.
Tuesday June 21st is a VERY high-energy when we experience the Summer Solstice! Please note that the energy and themes of this day will continue over the next month. These themes include working with the deeper levels of consciousness, personal and financial security, home, nurturing and your inner circle (family, close friends etc). By consciously working with this energy, you will be better able to create a state of stability and balance in the different areas of your life mentioned above. You can do this by creating positive affirmations which you can repeat every day (while focusing on them) and also by visualising each of your goals in their completed forms and using as many of your senses as possible.
There are various opinions in the spiritual world as to why the Summer Solstice is so energetically significant. However, all agree that the Solstice present us with a unique opportunity to make a ‘jump’ in consciousness. Many cultures since ancient times have placed a special significance on the Solstices as a time when we are especially receptive to raising our energetic vibrations and achieving much in our spiritual practise. In order to do this, one must consciously work with the energy through meditation, visualisation, intention, and/or energy work (Reiki etc.).
Whatever you decide to do, it’s best to practise outdoors, weather permitting. You can do this alone, or with a group (enjoy celebrating the Solstice with friends!). Begin by sitting quietly, breathing deeply and evenly, feeling yourself relax with every breath (for energy-workers, place the hands over the heart chakra, 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!
If you would like to combine mental exercises along with spiritual/energetic exercises, you can use the time of the Solstice to re-assess your life. Look at what you have achieved since the beginning of the year, what direction your life has taken over the past six months, and what actions you can take to create the life that you would like to be living. The ‘old way’ of doing things just doesn’t work anymore, and in order to be in harmony we must open ourselves to letting go and making changes.
During 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”. At this time, I strongly advise 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!
Wednesday June 22nd is a high-energy day when we will still be feeling some of the effects of the Summer Solstice yesterday, plus there will be lots of energy flowing in the areas of creativity, personal expression and communication. This energy can also have the effect of making one more talkative than usual, so in order to avoid this make sure to listen when others are speaking and allow them the time and space to express themselves, too.
Thursday June 23rd is a high-energy day that is all about increasing the flow of abundance in your life, gaining insights into old issues/hurts and releasing old ways of thinking/doing so that you can move forward in life with positive power. You can assist the process of increasing abundance by setting aside 10-15 minutes to visualise your goals (in their completed forms) in this area. Remember to try to use as many of your senses as possible as well as your intention. If you would like to work on gaining insights, you can set this intention before you begin a meditation on this area of your life. Keep a notebook handy so that you can write down your ideas and insights during this process. If you are a Reiki 2 (or above) practitioner, it’s a great day to work on abundance affirmations.
Friday June 24th is a high-energy day that carries many of the themes we experienced on Monday, so I’ll repeat the information here. This energy is very supportive in releasing old attachments and habits (especially the “uncomfortable truth” ones). Healing is also strongly supported, so try to take time for a full energy-healing session (Reiki or other healing energy), as much can be released and healed today. There are also wonderful opportunities to bring balance to significant relationships (romantic or otherwise). It’s time for open communication from the heart, on both sides, in order to strengthen relationships. Are you fulfilled in your relationships? Can you express yourself openly and without fear of judgement? Do your support each other and take joy in one another’s success and strengths? The answers to these questions can assist both parties in strengthening and enriching the relationship.
Saturday June 25th is a day of powerful, active 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 (2+5+6+2+0+1+6= 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. Additionally, there is a significant boost in the areas of physical vitality (increasing your energy levels) and bringing harmony and joy to family/significant relationships.
Sunday June 26th we finish this very active week with a high-energy day that is focused on abundance, prosperity and personal/spiritual transformation. You can make the most of this energy by taking time (as with yesterday) to visualise any goals you have in these areas in their completed forms. The intuition is also very strong today, so pay attention to your “gut instinct” and take time for meditation, even just a few minutes, so that you are better able to receive guidance and insight today. However, be aware that relationship issues can also be highlighted today. If you find this to be the case, it’s time for open communication and making sure that both parties listen to one another. If you are feeling “wounded”, it’s a good idea to meditate on why this is so and what issues need to be healed in order to release this.
Wishing all of you a powerful, transformative and positive week ahead!
Many blessings,
Chantal

Weekly Forecast, June 22nd – 28th 2015

Hello Everyone,
We had lots of strong energy last week and this week we have some powerful energy, too! The big highlight is the Summer Solstice, but we also have other high-energy days coming up, including a Master “22” Vibration day on Friday. There are many opportunities this week for personal growth, change and increasing the flow of abundance in one’s life! Let’s take a detailed look at what to expect and how to make the most of the energy available:

Summer Solstice2

Monday June 22nd we start the week with a very high-energy day: the Summer Solstice (occurring just after midnight in Hong Kong and this region). This is a day of strong intuition and very positive energy. In case you missed my posting about the Solstice, here it is again in full:

There are various opinions in the spiritual world as to why the Summer Solstice is so energetically significant. However, all agree that the 21st and 22nd present us with a unique opportunity to make a ‘jump’ in consciousness. Of course, many cultures since ancient times have placed significance on the Solstices, so let’s take a look at what we can do to make the most of this energy.

Some speak about the Solstice being an opportunity to anchor universal New Light Codes in our Cosmic Hearts and the Cosmic Heart of the Planet. Others in the spiritual world talk about the Summer Solstice as a time when we are especially receptive to raising our energetic vibrations. In order to do this, one must consciously work with the energies on the 21st and 22nd 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!).

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

If you would like to combine mental exercises along with spiritual/energetic exercises, you can use the time of the Solstice to re-assess your life. Look at what you have achieved since the beginning of the year, what direction your life has taken over the past six months, and what actions you can take to create the life that you would like to be living. The ‘old way’ of doing things just doesn’t work anymore, and in order to be in harmony, we should ask ourselves the following questions:

How am I living my life right now?
Who do I love now?
Am I faithful and devoted to each person I’m connected to?
Am I ready, at a moment’s notice, to give help to those who need assistance from me?
Do I trust the ‘grand plan’ that is unfolding, no matter what may happen in all areas of my life?

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”.
At this time, I strongly advise 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!!!

Tuesday June 23rd we will still be feeling the energetic effects of the Solstice, but not as intensely. The intuition will still be especially strong, so take time for meditation (even just a few minutes!) so that you are better able to receive guidance and insights. As the energy has been quite intense over the past couple of days, today you may feel “all over the place” or even agitated. If this is the case, you need to ground your energy. Use whichever grounding exercise you like best, or you can read my article about grounding for lots of suggestions: http://www.healingfire.com/tips-for-grounding-2/ You can also try my free, guided meditation: http://www.healingfire.com/mp3/ Just go to the link and then select “Guided Meditation for Grounding and Energising”.

Wednesday June 24th the energy will be more settled, but you may feel that the many high-energy days that have occurred over the past week have pushed old, unresolved issues to the surface. If you find that this is the case for you, take time to reflect upon these rather than ignoring or suppressing them. When something comes to the surface, it is “crying out” to be healed and released. Take steps to start this healing process so that you may live with more lightness, freedom and positive energy.

Thursday June 25th the energy will be rather low-key. Rather than starting new projects and trying to accomplish many tasks, it is a good idea to just “go with the flow” as much as possible. Tomorrow is a much better day for new starts and getting a lot done, so hold off until then. As tomorrow is a Master “22” vibration day, you may notice the energy steadily increasing in the evening.

Friday June 26th is a very high-energy day. According to numerology this day has special energetic significance, as the numbers of today’s date add up to the “Master Number” of 22 (2+6+6+2+0+1+5= 22). “22” is known as the “Master Builder”, so today is perfect 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.

Saturday June 27th the energy will be light and bright, and the intuition will be especially strong. Pay attention to your “gut instinct” and any signs! To better tap into your intuition, try to start the day with meditation: when the mind is still, we are better able to receive guidance and inspiration. These intuitive flashes will be especially strong in the areas of relationships and work.

Sunday June 28th we finish the week with the energy supporting us in making changes, especially in the area of relationships. Reflect upon any difficulties you have been experiencing in life… is it time for a different approach? Remember that what we resist persists, so open yourself up to possibilities and be flexible. The sooner you make necessary adjustments, the sooner things will start flowing smoothly.

Wishing all of you a positive and powerful week ahead!

Many blessings,
Chantal

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!

If you would like to combine mental exercises along with spiritual/energetic exercises, you can use the time of the Solstice to re-assess your life. Look at what you have achieved since the beginning of the year, what direction your life has taken over the past six months, and what actions you can take to create the life that you would like to be living. The ‘old way’ of doing things just doesn’t work any more, and in order to be in harmony, we should ask ourselves the following questions:

How am I living my life right now?
Who do I love now?
Am I faithful and devoted to each person I’m connected to?
Am I ready, at a moment’s notice, to give help to those who need assistance from me?
Do I trust the ‘grand plan’ that is unfolding, no matter what may happen in all areas of my life?

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”.
At this time, I strongly advise 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!!!
