Wedding Celebration & Ritual

man and wifecouple happy together

Weddings are happy occasions to celebrate a meeting of hearts between two people; between two families; and between friends.  Every country has its own celebration and ritual to do with marriage and family. In Nigeria the families choose a colour to wear to celebrate the occasion.  The colour lets you know who the family members and friends of the family are.

Here I share an event I went to with the energy of the Super Full Moon in Pisces and Sun in Virgo. This wedding filled my heart with joy and made me smile from deep within me. 

The couple are young and beautiful. They are rich in character and blooming with hope.  I am sharing this sacred event because it is a reminder of your possibilities and your potential. Never give up on your dreams.

The pictures are in the order I saw everything happen.  May these pictures heal you and give you hope and enable you to take action to achieve your happiness.  Note which pictures move you the most.

The Energy of Today 3 February 2015

Happy Full Moon.  Full Moon in Leo is about shining the light on the part of you that is hidden, in pain and in the shadows.  Aquarius allows us to fly high and journey to the brightest star – Sirius.

Full Moon SmileI woke up feeling great this morning. It was like the moment I stopped fighting to make things happen the energy calmed down around me and I woke up the lovely white snow outside my flat an a sense of calm and joy.  I was so surprised I thought: “This makes sense – it is the Snow Moon today – Full Moon in Leo.”  I thought I will take a picture of myself and capture the look! Can you see it?

Entering 2015 was like being on a fast train that would not stop. There was so much to do and so much to get done and so much not done!  It was like a never ending cycle of things to do.  Today for the first time in 2015 I feel calm and happy and serene.  Happy Full Moon in Leo, the Lion.  I am beaming like a Lioness.  My lovely main of hair is shiny and clean.  Hello all of you out there.  I Greet You.

This Full Moon in Leo is about allowing peace into your daily life.  Slowing down and relaxing like the lion would on the grass, looking around at your life and enjoying where you are right now. I hope this finds you enjoying where you are right now in your life.

Today is about being still and taking a moment to really enjoy where you are right now.  It is about gathering together with others and being in a sacred space that empowers and holds you in the light.  We at the Moon Gathering will be held in the light of the Full Moon calling in Sacred Peace into our Knowing and calling in Sacred Knowing into our Peace.  We will be Linking into the Excellence in our own individual lives.  See you.

The Energy Just Gone

The Energy Just Gone was very emotional with the Full Moon in Cancer and the Super New Moon in Aquarius.  The journey took us through many portals of life and living.  It journeyed us through our darkness and our sufferings and our hidden aspects.  It brought out the worst in us.  It stretched us to prepare for the growth of 2015.  We have yet to grow.  I know the preparation in the first three months of the year will propel us to be more than we have ever been – to be GLOBAL CITIZENS OF LIFE.

The effect of the Planets on us has been tremendous.  We have Pluto highlighting our shadow hidden side.  We have Mars, God of War, bringing out our anger and aggression.  We have Earth rotating allowing our process and nurturing us as much as we allow her to. 

Light is a very powerful vortex.  We have energetic light, cosmic light, healing light, torch light, street light, building light, etc.  Even the United Nations declared this year 2015 the International Year of Light.  You can scroll down to 2015 INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF LIGHT 2015 for related videos and websites on light. 

“On 20 December 2013, The United Nations (UN) General Assembly 68th Session proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015). ….. In proclaiming an International Year focusing on the topic of light science and its applications, the United Nations has recognized the importance of raising global awareness about how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture and health. Light plays a vital role in our daily lives and is an imperative cross-cutting discipline of science in the 21st century. It has revolutionized medicine, opened up international communication via the Internet, and continues to be central to linking cultural, economic and political aspects of the global society.”  http://www.light2015.org/Home/About.html 

“The International Year of Light expands the possibility of opening our consciousness to the Rays of Light which permeate our Universe. Let’s expand our attunement with the Light Laws of this exquisite Universe; a Universe which, like us, is lit from within, burnt and illuminated with the Light of LOVE.”  Carol Ann Ciocco

The Energy of Now

Today with the vortex of the Full Moon in Leo we have the glorious light of the Full Moon illuminating more abundance of life for us. 

Invite In This Full Moon invites in more confidence, more light, more energy and more relaxation into your energy.  You feel more in your own space and more in your own field.  It is a coming together of yourself; back home to yourself.  Celebrate this.  Wear bright colours to activate your confidence and courageous energy.  Wear red to activate your red blood cells. Wear something yellow or gold to shine your gloriousness from inside you.  Breathe in your favourite colours and feel the colours relaxing your body.  Really enjoy the beauty of YOU. 

here is to looking at youExpress what you are wanting; as opposed to what you are not wanting; or want you are not liking.  Express what you are seeing that is nice. Express only good things.  Express appreciation.  Express love.  Express with words, with your smiling face, with an open heart.  Express with the sun shining from deep inside you; and allow your energy to lift the spirit of others.  Be the light you seek.  Be the voice you want to hear.  Be with qualities you want the most in your life.  Call forth 3 qualities now.  Fill your life up with positive possibilities and potential. 

So nice to feel the sun shining on my face as I type this message to you. 

Do Something creative.  Do something kind.  Do something magnanimous. Do something nice.  Be creative with your time and the effort you put into doing something for someone or for yourself.  Really treasure you.  Invite in the collective energy of light and the individual quality of light.  Apply this energy into your projects to do with bringing more of what you need.  It could be more money to buy a new home.  It could be more money to pay your bills.  It could be greater relationships that empower you.  Do that with this wonderful portal energy.  Take up the torch of your life and stand showing everyone what you  have achieved and done so far. Congratulate yourself.  Congratulate others around you for their achievements no matter how small. 

jesus and healing relationship crystalsLight Vs. Dark We continue our battle of living with the Dark and the Light in balance.  We make friends with our Dark side as well as with our Light side.  It is two sides of a coin.  It is opposites. It is duality. We have the North pole and the South pole.  We have the opposites sitting with us today. 

Integration By integrating the darkness we are able to hold more light.  How difficult this is for me sometimes! 

How many times do I walk into an environment thinking it is wonderful only to leave feeling depleted and angry or to suddenly feel like leaving as I settle down to have a drink!  I prefer it when energy tells me not to go so I do not waste my time there!  Alas this is not so.  I know that all anger is coming from the planet Mars, God of War and aggression.  Even if I realise I really did not want to go, but I went to please others; the challenge in these situations is to integrate the darkness into the light; to transmute the darkness and allow the darkness to flow through or around me.  After all it is only energy.

patterns of lifeActivating the Courageous Fighting Spirit within me in a positive way is the best way forward – knowing that I am safe and OK to be in this energy vortex; and recognising that by integrating the light; I am going through my own personal spiritual process and test.  

Light and Dark is only energy.  Absorbing the energy into your body or auric field will affect you if you do not transmute the energy or remove it.  I brush my teeth regularly to cleanse my energy field.  The challenge is to stand in my own power and squarely face all energies and say hello with a smile on my face.  Now that is a nice new concept and a way to celebrate the way forward into 2015.

To be a Light Master one must be able to integrate the darkness in all levels. 

Egyptian Gods  We see the Egyptian god Horus representing the daytime sky and Set the night time sky.  We see the Goddess Nut covering the night sky with the sparkling stars.  Even in the dark we have the light sparkling away. 

Past Present Future  We have past and future from the point of now.  The past is behind us. We face our future from the point of the present – the Now. 

Sopdet.svgCelestial Gathering this Full Moon I have always worked with the Milky Way and Sirius.  We will be connecting to both portals this Full Moon. It is a gathering of Light Beings we will be connecting with. They are coming for the party.  Are you?  We will have the Egyptian Gods – Isis, Osiris, Horus.  We will have the Stars – Sirius, Osiris, Sun. 

The Egyptian Goddess Sopdet is the Egyptian personification of the star Sirius. I love this drawing by Jeff Dahl. Her partner is Sah (constellation of Orion).  Her child Sopdu. Her name in hieroglyphs is

Healing the Ancestral Tree

FamilyMoon Workshop Exercise We will be doing an exercise to heal your ancestral tree at the Full Moon Healing Workshop on February 3 at 7pm.  This Full Moon in Leo is about giving back what is not yours to carry.

Children take on their family karma; and their parents issues; consciously and unconsciously.  You find that you may say something the way one of your parents used to say it.  You may get angry just the way your father/mother did.  You become like them.  The son may take his father’s anger and claim it as his.  He may respond to everyone like his father.  He may even hate himself; because he hates his father; and; not even know the association of the origin of the hatred he feels for his father. This is a mirroring that happens as children repeat the family karmic behaviour patterns, beliefs and attitude.

grandfather son  fatherMeeting the Energy This Full Moon continues the journey to set us free of our past in this lifetime, and the past created by our Ancestors.  This meeting of the Energy is what makes real healing so powerful.  We are always looking to heal our pain, suffering, anger, resentment and rage within us; that may have been triggered by our parents; and; that was triggered by our parents.  So we have a variety of family history.  What is your family history?  Is it rage, of prostitution, of slavery, of low self esteem, of self doubt, of mental problems and of poverty mentality.  What family history do you have?

Dad with a heart of goldAncestors It is important to realise that the ancestors have gone through their own pain and do not want you to take on their pain.  That is why we revere ancestors.  They have walked and lived their journey and their life.  They should know that their suffering, struggles, tears, pain, hardships, and losses was not in vain.  You should not be repeating them.  If you do they are not happy.

Doing a ritual to give back what is not yours to whoever you got it from; can free your life of many things such as addictions, putting on weight and self loathe.  The son realises that the anger was not his anger, it was from his father.  When you give back what is not yours you free your energy.  Asking your ancestors to take back what is theirs is a good thing.  They will take it back as long as you ask them to take it back.  Ancestors do not want to see you suffer and in pain, so they will gladly take away your pain through the ritual.  When we give back what is not ours we give them back their fate and their karma.  It is not yours to take. It never was. 

a mother a grandmother a wife a widow a lady a womanForgiveness Our ancestors seek our forgiveness and we seek their forgiveness.  As we forgive them we release them from their past and we release ourselves from the burden of the family karma.  We give them permission to be free and open our hearts to more love and more love and more love.  The ritual act of forgiveness is a wonderful way to move forward and away from  the negatives in our lives. By forgiving them we forgive ourselves and give ourselves permission to be happy.  Remember this negative emotion or feeling is not yours.  You release it back to the ancestors and free yourself from them and free them too.

Many Roles  A baby girl grows up to be a toddler, an infant, a child, a junior, teenager, young woman, woman, adult woman, mature woman, old woman.  She is a friend, a lady, a woman, a mother, a wife, a sister, a grandmother, an aunt, a niece, a great grandmother, a great great grand mother.

Past Present Future Looking at our past and at our upbringing; we go further to look at our ancestors – our deep past.  In Ancestral Healing past and future are healed in the now. We ask for forgiveness for the past and ask for help.  We move time into the void of past present future.  We are connected in a split second of light and the change happens just as quickly. 

Sessions with Toks If you want a session to help you heal your ancestral tree please call me to book a series of 4 sessions.  Handing back the problem to your ancestor and asking them to release you of the burden is a very powerful exercise to do.

The trauma that befell your grandparents weigh on your heart like lead.  Transformation comes when you hear the ancestors.  They mourn when you carry their burden and rejoice when you receive their gifts.  Dr Dan Booth Cohen.

When the dead are honoured, respected and remembered, and their fate is acknowledged, they are a source of healing and benevolence. When judged, rejected or forgotten, they can cast a shadow on the living.  Rosie Anson, Family Therapist.
