Energy forecast for July 2019

Energy forecast for July 2019

 This month of July has brought with it an influx of new energies. It is going to be another fast-paced month.

We kicked the month off with a full solar eclipse and new moon. Eclipse energy tends to shake and stir things up for us, on an emotional, mental and physical level. A new moon brings new beginnings and this July new moon feels similar to the start of a New Year energy, when we feel a strong desire to make changes in our personal lives.

There will be eclipses and planetary retrogrades to help support us this month. This very personal energy will be driving us to work on different aspects of ourselves and therefore, it is important to remember that everyone is at a different stage of their evolution and soul growth.

We are now experiencing a second Eclipse season this year (the first one being in January) – The eclipse family before that took place in 2001! Eclipse families move in 18-year cycles. The eclipse happens when there is a total alignment between the sun, moon and the Earth and it will feel like a reset for us.

We need to use this auspicious cosmic thrust to help clear & declutter our life. During this month, there will be a great deal of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual cleansing and going over old ground.

 

The key dates in July:

Over the next two weeks, we have an eclipse doorway of opportunity between the two eclipses of this month. This gives us opportunities to awaken, align to soul and accelerate our growth, if we so wish.

Remember, we are now operating under a 5D frequency – we need to use our wisdom and become more self-responsible, not hide ourselves away, but shine our light and walk our talk.

Allow our energy to extend and expand out into our surroundings, feeling and acknowledging it’s impact on others. We are infinite beings of light that do not stop at our physical body.

During the month of July, there will be 6 planets in retrograde: Chiron, Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, Neptune – Because of these retrogrades, there will be a lot going on for us and a lot of going over old ground.

July 8th, will see a return of Mercury in retrograde. When this planet is in retrograde, we will experience a communication overhaul under the influence of Mercury, the ruler of Communication. This will push us to be more open, truthful, transparent and communicative.

On July 10th , Chiron will be in retrograde. We will be given the opportunity to clear more of our deepest core wounding as this may play out for us.

This month will be reflective of the July 2001 eclipse energies. When we look back to this period, we will be able to appreciate just how much we have evolved since then.

In 2001, the planet would have just entered a new Millennium, the start of a 1000-year cycle. The energies were very new and were just being embedded.

Now, 18 years later, we are anchoring in and working with this energy at a much higher level!

July 16th - 17th will see a full moon and partial lunar eclipse. The energy at this time will feel very powerful. Around this time, the eclipse doorway opportunity closes and we will be in a post eclipse period until the end of month when we will be driven to tying up loose ends.

At end of month, meteor showers will occur, making our dream state very vivid & lucid. We may even experience out of body travel whilst asleep. Trust and allow it to happen, knowing that it is happening for our highest good.

On July 31st will be the first of 3 super-new moons in a row. These lunar frequencies will be greatly amplifying whatever is going on for us.

We are becoming the custodians of this new energy by anchoring it into our new 5D reality. We are learning to hold our light around others, shine our wisdom, not engage in the drama or project our negativity onto others.

We never stop growing and so let’s enjoy our personal transformation!

 

3rd Dimensional or a 5th Dimensional consciousness?

Humanity has the capacity to exist in multi-dimensions all at once. We were all living with a 3rd Dimensional consciousness up until the period of 1999-2012 when the Global Grid matrix (a grid of light and energy that surrounds and sustains our planet and cosmos) experienced a huge shift, resulting in a change of frequency of the Earth’s energy.

Humanity and our physical planet as a whole, were impacted by these shifts in the global grid which impacted upon our consciousness and caused a new 5th Dimensional (5D) template to be overlaid onto the old 3rd Dimensional (3D) one.

 

When we live with a 3D focus

 

When operating purely from 3D awareness, people tend to ignore their Spirituality, have little or no spiritual beliefs, or can be stuck in religious dogma. They tend to see things in black and white, with little or no understanding of Universal ways and magic. They will often get caught up in daily drama, gossip, conflict and easily create painful situations for themselves.

They can become entrenched in a victim mentality that causes them to blame everyone else for what is theirs to own. They struggle to see the bigger picture and spiritual meaning behind the circumstances that play out in their lives.

 

When we live with a 5D focus

It usually takes someone to undergo a few wake-up calls to shift their consciousness into a 5D reality. Often a life crisis causes them to re-evaluate and look for the deeper purpose to their life.

When operating under 5D awareness, people have a strong spiritual connection and understand that their words, thoughts, feelings and actions impact upon everyone in their reality, including themselves.

When people resonate at a heart and Soul level, they direct life via their inner feelings and intuition. This is a 5th Dimensional (5D) way of operating. Their mind is being constantly inspired, through thought, intuition, imagination and daydreaming. They tend to take full responsibility for what they choose to create and experience in their lives, and their sense of compassion and understanding for themselves and others deepens as they stay focused on their higher calling.

The world appears the same in 5D reality, but people become much more considered in everything they do and their new reality feels less harsh and more softened when focused on the 5D.

As they awaken and open up to 5D consciousness, they naturally become more self-responsible. Being self-responsible helps them to make wise and perfect choices for themselves. Often their choices are for the highest good of all and not just for themselves.

 

They may start to see gaps forming between themselves and those closest to them. They may even feel naturally inclined to move away from people who purely operate in 3D consciousness because time spent with them can become draining and uninspiring, especially at first.

 

Relationships can go through big challenges, if one awakens and the other is not ready to yet. Once awakened, people may be evolving at an accelerated rate, and loved ones may not be. We have to remember that we are all at different levels of consciousness. This is Soul’s choice and we must respect the timing of our own awakening to our divine self and the free will of all.

 

Those who choose to operate at a 3D level, won't notice much of a difference in everyday life, but may not feel comfortable around people who are living a 5D reality. This is because they feel the shift in consciousness and may even feel confronted by it!

 

People who operate at a 5D level of consciousness, will naturally turn away from that which doesn't align with, feed, nurture and inspire their higher soul self. For example, people, hobbies, creative pursuits and career paths may change. They will start to attract others who are also operating with a 5D awareness.

 

Relationship breakdowns are common during a changeover to 5D consciousness. But 5D awareness can also often bring willing souls even closer together.

 

Sometimes people can feel sad and alone when starting to operate on a higher frequency. This does pass, as they find a way to be their new higher soul self around others.

 

As they move away from old dramas, a new ‘more supportive’ life creates itself around them. Their life choices will rapidly shift and they will choose healthy and nourishing options for themselves.

 

They will re-visit their past and old patterns and this enables them to see clearly how limiting it was to get angry with others in the old 3D way.

Adjusting and surrendering to the Universal forces

Erratic energy

 

The month of May 2019, has brought an energy which feels very expansive, fast-paced and erratic – providing us with lots of opportunities to see the bigger picture and to hold our light through tricky situations and circumstances.

 

This week beginning Monday 13th May, there have been spectacular geometric shapes forming in the skies between planets, the moon and Earth. We are being driven to rise up and see our self and our life from our biggest potential. With Jupiter in retrograde, we are being pushed to look at how we value ourselves and create new opportunities.

 

The month of May is a power month

 

This month is a power month, so Dream BIG and take action! The energy is moving in waves with lots of peaks and ebbs. It is important to rest as much as possible when the energy is ebbing. This is a vital period of introspection and integration of the changes that we were driven to make in the peaks of energy.

 

The energy will intensify during this coming weekend with the full moon serving as an amplifier.

 

Soul is pushing us to live more expansively, with meaning and purpose. Consider putting all of ‘US’ into what we love! We may also be experiencing intense dreams with many messages. Our awareness is opening up and illusion is breaking down. Changes are afoot!

 

This month is about being strong and in our personal power. Because of this, emotions may run high – But we can choose, whether or not, to engage in them.

 

We need to take care of our physical body and if restless, expend our excess energy.

 

Have you been feeling the ups and downs in the energy?

 

People have been struggling with the peaks and ebbs in the energy, which is impacting upon our emotional landscape.

 

We may be feeling at peace, joyful, connected and then suddenly a thought pops into our mind triggering feelings of insecurity, low self-worth and even depression.

 

By approaching life from a cosmic perspective, we remember that we are all connected and that our actions, intent, feelings and thoughts, not only impact upon ourselves but upon others as well.

 

We need to continually rise above our feelings or negative situations to see that bigger picture. This reminds us that higher forces are at play in our life, over which we have no control.

 

We are being tested by soul this month, on our ability to rise above human drama – and to apply the wisdom that we have learnt so far, since the beginning of this year.

 

By reminding ourselves that situations, feelings or physical symptoms come up to clear, this enables us to master our internal emotions a little more, that may have created them in the first place!

 

Feel gratitude for our momentous shifts and changes

 

 As we look back at our selves and see how much we have shifted, it is important to honour ourselves for the internal work that we have done to enable the shifts and self-transformation!

 

This gratitude enhances our self-love and enables us to radiate out that love to others. It also enables us to hold our light and hold a space for others to do the same – as our intent ripples out. Remember, all that we do, think and feel, not only impacts on ourselves but upon others as well!

 

At the time of our birth, we all come in at different stages of spiritual and personal growth – due to our past life experiences. Everyone struggles in different ways and everyone has life lessons to learn. All of our lessons help us to grow and embody more light and wisdom. By focusing on our own personal path – we do not get side-tracked by another’s!

Stepping into our Spirituality

This month of May 2019 has brought with it a new energy that feels very different to the steady, slower paced April!

 

We are now experiencing a faster paced and somewhat erratic energy that moves through us in waves that we need to learn to ride.  Making sure we rest in the quieter, integration periods is important, as we have a tendency to push ourselves to the limits. Honouring ourselves in this way during these times, will really help to support us this month.

 

This new energy has been feeling very expansive and Soul is often in the fore front. Personally, I have felt very connected to my higher self recently.

 

We are all being given many opportunities to step up into our spiritual self and it is therefore crucial to keep seeing the bigger picture at all times. This practice has really helped me a lot over the last week, especially during chaotic times when the energy has been peaking.

 

We are learning to expand and act with confidence and be guided by our inner voice. This is a power period for projecting out love and embodying our spirituality. As our awareness expands, we learn to trust in our instincts, freeing ourselves of worry or doubt. As the veil of uncertainty lifts, we will be more certain of our spiritual self.

 

I run a Beyond Doorways healing on the Whisper Tree Community at the start of every week.  Beyond Doorways is a set of procedures that have been channelled through by my teacher, the Founder of Transference Healing, Alexis Cartwright.

 

At the beginning of this week, as I channelled through the energy, it felt like we were being given opportunities to step into our power but in a more heart-felt, loving and compassionate way. We are learning to walk our talk and embody more of our higher, spiritual aspects.

 

The message that is coming through loud and clear for our Community, was not to wait for others or outward experiences to create our joy and inner peace. These are heart-felt aspects that can be created by us, through the power of our thoughts and feelings.

 

This month we are being driven to hold our light, by holding a space for ourselves and others. In other words, we are learning to enable others to be true to themselves. We are slowly letting go of the responsibility that we feel towards others and simply guiding them in a loving way, allowing them to grow and learn through their own mistakes.

 

Nurturing and honouring ourselves with acts of self-love is also important at this time. We can do this by valuing our beliefs; speaking our truth; not suppressing our sense of self around others and standing our ground with loved ones in a gentle but strong, heart-felt way.

 

Key cosmological events in May and how they will impact upon us

The month of May will feel very similar to the month of March in energetic terms. March was a ‘power’ month due to various cosmological events such as the Spring Equinox and supermoons. This month we will be experiencing some incredibly powerful planetary alignments.

 

The influx of new energies that are coming in this month will feel different to April’s energy. May energy will be impacting on us all and will be more expansive, therefore opening our consciousness up more. Throughout the month, it is important that we see the bigger picture in all aspects of our lives and keep a long range view.

 

This month will bring a big influx of energy and things may seem chaotic at times. We will experience a lot of change and flexibility will be required to enable us to flow smoothly through May. Energy moves in waves like the sea – and there will be highs and lows throughout the month. These ups and downs will occur very rapidly and we will need to learn to ride these waves – enabling more flow, ease and synchronicity in our lives (if we are not resisting the changes)! Following a peak of energy, we may feel intense tiredness. During these periods, we need to slow down in order to integrate the shifts within ourselves.

 

We have angelic assistance on earth, helping us to keep balanced and centred throughout the shifts in frequency and the changes that those shifts bring about. We will have plenty of opportunities to template a new way of being and to anchor this into our reality, showing loved ones and those in our lives how to be centred and balanced during intense times.

 

Throughout the month, we will be given opportunities to be the rock or the light bearer for our family unit and to understand that we are doing so, because soul has guided us and we are doing our internal work, by embodying our beliefs and spiritual practice.

 

Be prepared and empowered with the key cosmological dates in May

 

May 4th-5th - new moon period. This is a good time to contemplate upon and initiate new changes that we would like to put in place for this month. Perhaps we will be drawn to trying out new hobbies, or to have more creativity in our lives, etc.

 

May 6th - we will be midway to the Summer Solstice. There will be Meteor showers peeking at this time – so we will be getting lots of messages from soul and from our dreams, if open and receptive. Ask for guidance if needed.

 

May 11th - 12th – a cosmic kite will be forming in the skies – this will bring through a powerful energy. We will perhaps be undergoing initiations or times of struggle to help us understand the lessons we need to learn for our higher good. We need to see the bigger picture in all things and not get so caught up in the drama of situations. We may see a lot of unrest and change at a global level too. Old systems are breaking down and changing to a higher existence!

 

May 18 - 19th – will be the start of the full moon period. Full Lunar energy is very amplifying, therefore things may seem a little intense over this period. This is a good time for self-care and nurture. If you can, book in for a high frequency healing, such as Transference healing; pay attention to your diet, eating cleanly where possible and connect to nature over this period.

 

Up to May 29th – we will be assimilating and integrating this energy and the new shifts, so it is time to slow down and take a breath. We may feel like we have less energy at this time.

 

May 30 - 31st  – we will experience the final upsurge of energy for the month and we will be driven, once again, to step up and show the world who we truly are.

Throughout the month, we will be given opportunities to step up into the role of spiritual leader within our family unit and circle of friends. By practicing our spiritual leadership skills and embodying our beliefs by walking our talk, we are able to live our life on a higher level and not get so caught up in the drama. Being selective with which situations and events we get involved in, is crucial at this time. By staying on our path, we are being rewarded by becoming the rock or guiding light for ourself and others. We have worked hard to get to this point and it is important to acknowledge this for ourselves!

 

Are you feeling the magic?

Over recent months, we have been through a huge amount of intense change that has given rise to many shifts and changes within our consciousness and reality.

 

April has brought with it, a new energy of steady growth and continual change. We may need space, time, solitude and introspection to assimilate and deal with the feelings that this change brings about, especially this week, as we get used to the new pace of energies. Deep memories and emotions may surface this week. Being honest and forthright with ourselves, will enable revelations to be made at this time.

 

Yesterday (Wednesday 10th April), Jupiter commenced its annual retrograde and will continue to be in retrograde until mid August 2019. Humanity, as a whole, will be impacted and may have feelings of self-doubt, low-self worth and lethargy that surface during this week.

 

We may find that our time, energy and personal space is being invaded at the moment by others who feel our light. We need to therefore be discerning about who we spend our time with, in order to keep our vibration high. Being outside in nature in wooded areas where possible, is essential for our sense of well being.

 

With Jupiter in retrograde, it is an auspicious time to explore our full potential and start work on personal projects. We will have opportunities to gain clarity and focus on our goals. It is a time to dream big, take action and manifest our desires.

We may need to push past self-imposed limitations, doubts and fears; and keep work-focussed and diligent on our goals.

 

Jupiterian energy drives us to look at our personal success, sense of abundance, life’s purpose, the work we do and how we value ourselves generally.

 

At the start of this week, I did my usual totem card reading for the Whisper Tree Community and Unicorn was one of the cards that came up in the reading. I love Unicorn frequency and I am resonating with it at the moment. On Tuesday 9th April, it was National Unicorn day, which gives a lovely synchronicity and confirmation to the reading.

 

Unicorn embodies magic, fairies and the elemental frequencies of nature. Almost every culture has unicorns in its mythology, art and symbolism. Unicorns have been trending in the UK, for such a long time, mainly with children’s clothing and accessories. I feel this is because they represent something so pure and magical that resides at the heart of each and every one of us.

 

Unicorns are said to roam in enchanted forests where magic and fairies exist. Most people believe that fantasy kingdoms exist only in our hearts and imagination. I believe that Unicorns help us to re-connect to the Fairy Kingdoms and Angelic realms which are parallel realities that co-exist with our world.

 

Unicorns hold a pure frequency that helps us to throw caution to the wind and to reconnect and feel the magic that surrounds us. It enhances our connection to the elemental frequencies of nature and even helps us to reconnect to the ancient and lost world of Lemuria, which predates Atlantis.

 

Fairies are believed to travel inter-dimensionally on Unicorns to enter the different realms and return to visit those who are pure of heart, mainly children. They help us to be sustained in the light and to radiate our light outwards. They help children to open up and connect to the magical realms of the angelic and fairy kingdoms and also to retain as much of their innocence as possible as they grow up, protecting them from traumatic experiences.

 

For adults, it helps us to heal inner child pain and open up our hearts to the magical forces at play in our lives.

 

Are you feeling the magic? I certainly am!

The aftermath of this intense cosmological period

The cosmological events over the past 3 weeks, have taught us so much about ourselves on a personal and spiritual level! We have been through an incredible amount of clearing and releasing on the mental, emotional and physical planes and for many of us, this period has felt like an intense wake-up call! Humanity as a whole, has been very impacted, consciously or unconsciously, by these energies.

 

During and following this period of intensity, I feel that people have been impacted differently and have witnessed a lot of fear surfacing in people. Many of my clients have experienced depression-related symptoms and intense tiredness. There has also been a lot of resistance to change in the community where I live.

 

Over the last few days, I have personally felt, the intensity of these energies starting to ebb a little, although for others, this intensity is still continuing to play out in their daily lives, through different circumstances.

 

Mercury in retrograde is drawing to a close this week, although we will still feel it’s post shadow effect until the beginning of April and will still be driven to tie up loose ends and speak our truth.

 

We are now busy assimilating the newness that these changes have brought about and therefore it is important to prioritise self-care, good nutrition and balancing exercise, to help support us with our transformation.

 

We need to keep taking the next steps to acting upon what we love to do. The Universe will support us! By staying open to any assistance that comes our way, whatever shape or form it takes, this will provide us with much needed support.

  

By visualising ourselves in the future and where we would love to be in our life, will enable us to think and act more expansively, helping us to live more of our life’s purpose, every day.

 

If we find that we are still stuck within a pattern of behaviour, we can ask the Universe for guidance. We will begin to understand our lessons and gain realisations on why we struggle with certain aspects of our life, be it relationships, intimacy, negative and destructive patterns, etc.

 

Our psyche and intuition is heightened at the moment. It is a good time to pay attention to our dreams and write down the messages that come through from spirit, in our dreamtime. Getting into the habit of journaling any conscious intuitive guidance regarding personal change is also a good idea, as we may not always be in a position to act upon it immediately!

 

In January and February, when there was a lot of collective clearing of negative and dense energies, empathic people will have most likely struggled with the shifts in energy. Empaths are hypersensitive and have the ability to read other people’s emotions, but can become very impacted by them.

 

Empaths naturally serve as filters for negativity on the Earth. Just as trees and plants filter and oxygenate the air, they clear denser and more negative energies. Because of this empathic ability, they will have much more karmic patterning and fear surfacing for release, than those who are less sensitive to energy. Empaths even attract that which needs balance. Rather like a cat which goes to the most negative person in a room first - to heal and balance their energy...Because of these higher gifts, they make exceptional healers and energy workers.

Empathic or not - keeping ourselves and our space clean and clear - through nutrition, exercise, lifestyle shifts, intention and energy work, is essential when being impacted by intense cosmological happenings.

 

How are you living your spirituality?  

How have you been experiencing the intensity of the energies over this past week to 10 day period?

 

March has been a powerful and fast-paced month so far – with this week (beginning Monday 18th March) being an important week energetically speaking for this month.

 

In preparation for the Spring Equinox, which is a new beginning energetically and astrologically, humanity, as a whole, has been doing a lot of physical, emotional and mental clearing. On Wednesday 20th – 21st March, we welcomed the Spring Equinox and the final full moon as a super moon of 2019, in the Northern hemisphere. We have been supercharged over a 48-hour period, with all of this cosmological energy.

 

Mercury is still in retrograde and many of us have been feeling stressed, unable to sleep, unfocussed, heavy and even depressed at times. A lot of my clients have also been suffering with headaches, which can be a sign that the crown chakra is opening up, as we reconnect to our divine self. Personally, I have felt like I have been inside a pressure cooker for the past week. Fortunately, I have been able to run energy on myself to help me shift through these feelings and keep me balanced.

 

We are being very driven energetically to clear up our self-image and how we show ourselves to the world. We may therefore be drawn, at the moment, to alter our appearance in some way; upgrade our social media presence or change the way in which we communicate to others.

 

Our psychic, intuitive and telepathic senses are heightened. It is an optimal time to gain clarity on the changes we would like to make in our lives and to anchor them into our reality.

This week, in particular, we are being asked to go within and still the mind, opening our receptivity to revelation and clarification.

 

Have the faith that we have all we need to move through any situation with more ease and grace.

 

In order to cope in these intense times, it is important to bring our own unique sense of spirituality into our everyday life, as much as possible.

In order to help support us in this, I have shared below a prayer that I channelled through.

 

If this prayer resonates with you, repeat it to yourself regularly.

 

My daily prayer for higher consciousness

 

 

·      I see every situation and circumstance from a higher perspective.

·      I ask myself ‘what I can learn from this?’

·      I know that I am always loved and divinely guided by the Universe.

·      I know that everything in my life is divinely orchestrated for my higher good.

·      I have faith and trust in the Universe.

·      I am grateful for all lessons, however hard and I understand that they provide me with a wonderful opportunity for spiritual growth.

·      I do not get caught up in emotional drama.

·      I take ownership of negative emotions and I do not project them out or blame others.

·      I surrender to the waves of intensity, simply allowing my feelings to dissolve.

·      I release and purify my emotional, mental and physical body.  

·      I understand that my words, feelings, actions and intent impact not only on myself, but upon others too!

·      I act with deliberate consciousness in everything that I do.

·      I pause and speak more from the heart.

·      I radiate love and light from the heart to myself and others.

·      I am a beacon of light for others, giving them permission to be the same.

·      I am filled with joy, light and love for myself and other.

 

Sent with love,

 

 

Zoe

When it is OK to not to be OK

March 2019 is revealing itself to be a power month,  fast-paced and bringing with it many changes for us all.

 

Next week, we have the Spring Equinox which will feel like a new beginning, astrologically speaking. We will also have a full moon in supermoon (last of the three). Therefore, we are clearing ourselves on all levels, in preparation for this happening.

 

It feels like we are going through a huge detoxification process on an energetic, emotional and physical level. Physical symptoms are surfacing for many of us, as we shift and change to embody more light.

 

A lot of people seem to be suffering from headaches, feelings of disorientation, ringing in the ears, periods of intense tiredness and nausea, etc. This is because our energy body is getting affected by the shifts in frequency, orchestrated by cosmological and astrological happenings. Our energy body is like a blue print which impacts on our emotional body and subsequently our physical body.

 

I feel that we are going through such an intense period of change this year, that we are having to integrate all of these changes quickly, leaving us feeling disorientated, confused and even fearful at times. Some of us may even be pulling up grief around losing aspects of our self.

 

It is vital to support our selves as much as possible, at the moment. By considering ourselves to be in a detoxification period and therefore adopting a light and fresh diet with plenty of water and a minimum of junk food, would be a great start! Salt baths, moving as much as possible and being outside to connect with nature would also help support us, physically and emotionally.

 

If you are feeling stuck and are struggling, then book in for a Transference Healing, this will support you energetically and help to shift you through!

 

Check out our Healing page:

At this time, we may also be getting lots of inspiration in our waking or dream state, regarding our personal transformation and change. It is an auspicious time to take note of any ideas - writing them down and ensuring to take inspired action upon them, as soon as we are ready and able to.

 

We may find, amidst the intensity, that our priorities are also shifting and changing because we have so much to accomplish!!

 

We will be continually upgrading ourselves to reflect these personal changes. The way we present our self generally, our appearance, or even our social media presence will probably start to change. This is an auspicious time to be showing our authentic self.

 

Mercury is in retrograde this month and is asking us to be diligent and thorough in all that we do. Pay attention to our inner conversations and those that we have with others. Act in the moment with consciousness and check our intent before speaking or taking action.

 

We may be experiencing dense and heavy emotions at this time because Mercury is asking us to look over old ground.  Because of this, past acquaintances may be resurfacing, enabling us to clear the energy and rekindle our relationship in a more positive way.

 

This is also an auspicious time to be enhancing and developing our intuitive skills. Creating time to hear those soul whispers and getting into the habit of stilling ourselves regularly, is important.

 

Once in that still state of receptivity, we can obtain guidance by simply asking the questions that need answering - out loud or in our head. Pay attention, our soul whispers can be so subtle at first, that we hardly hear them. Build the faith and trust that what we are sensing, hearing or feeling, is our intuitive guidance and not our own wishful or fearful thoughts.

 

Just like nature herself, we are cyclical beings and so are not in full bloom 100% of the time. We have many periods within a day, month or year where we feel introspective. We want to withdraw and do not feel sociable. We need to honour these times and surrender to them as much as possible. It may seem like we are going against the grain of social conditioning, by surrendering, resting and withdrawing during these introspective moments, but it is essential to our wellness to surrender to these times and honour ourselves within that.

 

 

The importance of self-acceptance for authenticity

This week beginning Monday 4th March 2019, planetary re-alignments are forming incredible geometric lines of energy between the planets. This is enabling our consciousness to rise. This month of March is a power month and we are yielding the results of all the clearing that we have been doing over the past few months.

 

We are now ready to take inspired action and commence our personal changes, anchoring them onto our reality. This month will be a fast-spaced month. We will have more of an ability to see the bigger picture in our lives and therefore pushed to be open to newness and variety.

 

On March 5th to 6th, the planet Mercury starts to retrograde for about 3 weeks. When Mercury, the ruler of communication, is in retrograde (this occurs 3 – 4 times a year), we are being drawn to going over old ground and enter a period of self-evaluation. This period regresses us and past acquaintances may resurface in our lives. This presents us with a golden opportunity to shift old energy between us so that we can rekindle the relationship in a more positive way.

 

We have also had a new moon this week, which always signifies new beginnings and new action steps to take. A new moon also encourages and inspires reflection on what has been and what we have achieved during the last lunar cycle.

 

This is a 3:3:3 year, so a year of deep change and transformation for all of us. We are being pushed energetically to bring in these changes into our lives, to speak our truth and show the world who we truly are.

 

This week, therefore, I felt guided to talk about being and honouring our authentic self by re-connecting not only with our higher, divine self but also accepting and connecting to all aspects of ourself.

 

So what are all the aspects of ourself?

 

Our personality self is shaped by our beliefs and experiences. Our ego is the part of our personality that likes to be in control and in the driving seat. The ego is driven by fear that pushes us to control and manipulate situations, outcomes and people in our lives. We also have what I like to call our shadow self which incorporates negative patterning, behaviours and tendencies that we all have. Lastly, we have our divine, soul or higher self. All of these aspects are very much part of who we are. We need to recognise all these aspects of ourselves to continue our path of spiritual growth and personal development.

 

To embrace our authentic self, we must first learn to accept all of these parts, recognising them for what they are. Not allowing the ego and shadow-self aspects to take over is also important. The more we accept all parts of our self, the more we can shine our raw, real, beautiful self out into the world. As we do so, we start to develop our inner-strength and strengthen our sense of self.

 

Our sense of self creates a stability within us, that enabling us to detach from other people’s energy, intent, thoughts and feelings. We start to accept others, becoming patient and strong with them, as we have become of our self. And we may even find that we are becoming beacons of light for our loved ones, the spiritual trail blazer within the family unit.

 

As we walk our talk more, becoming that shining, authentic example for others, remember to pause before taking action or communicating. Explain to others that you need a moment to ‘process’ or ‘take on board’ what has just been communicated to you. Become more responsive rather than reactive. This allows you to connect in with your intuitive self and obtain higher guidance for the best way forward for everyone concerned.

People will feel this shift in your intent and it will give them permission to do the same.
