So much happening in One Day

  1. A Super Moon or Perigee Moon, happens when the Full Moon or New Moon is near to Earth, making it look bigger than it normally does.  There are 6 Super Moons in the year of 2015.  You can see all the dates by clicking:2015 MOON DATES
  2. Spring Equinox is when day and night are of equal duration.  The two years; the Spring Equinox will happen with a Solar Eclipse; are 2053 and 2072.  So you can see how rare this is.  Enjoy the experience in your lifetime.
  3. Solar Eclipse is when the Sun, Moon and Earth line up.  In this case the Moon obscures the Sun so we loose Sunlight on Earth.

World Water Day – LOVE WATER

22 March is World Water Day and a group of very nice people are doing water rituals, blessings, ceremonies, etc. to honour, clean, heal and to bless water.  I will be linking in to this wonderful meditation on World Water Day to purify and respect the Emoto and ToksWater Energy; and Water Element of Mother Earth; and Cosmology.  To send healing love to the water of the world; and to the water people drink around the world.  I will be  keeping a very strong thought and focus for the water to be cleansed; and purified; and; to heal everyone who drinks water.  The esoteric world of water is truly amazing. http://unify.org/        https://youtu.be/k8XYXhc9jUs  

I will be thinking of the great work of RIP Dr MASARU EMOTO and blessing his energy and thanking him for the great work he did before he passed over.  Contemplate how you can carry on the great work of valuing water. https://youtu.be/tAvzsjcBtx8    https://youtu.be/PDW9Lqj8hmc

Total Solar Eclipse,   Vernal / Spring Equinox Super,

New Moon & Sun in Pisces

20 March 2015

TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE

TOTAL in North Atlantic, Faroe Islands, Svalbard. VISIBLE in Iceland, Europe, North Africa, Northern Asia.

Total Solar Eclipse 2015LONDON:  The Eclipse will begin around 8.30am on Friday 20 March 2015 in London and last for two hours as the Moon moves IN FRONT of the Sun. The Moon is in a direct line with the Earth and the Sun.  It is the first Solar Eclipse in 50 years.  It is a rare event. It is predicted that in London 84% of the Sun will be covered while in Edinburgh it will be 93%.   There are organised events in Regents Park and the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. Some areas may be out of electricity….?!

The longest time the Sun will be completely covered by the Moon is 2 minutes and 46 seconds.

DIY pinhole projectorWARNING:  Please do not look up directly at the Eclipse as it could damage your eyes. It can cause blindness! Please do not use sunglasses, a telescope or binoculars. If you want to see the Eclipse please WEAR SPECIAL ECLIPSE VIEWING GLASSES or construct a simple pinhole camera. To make a pinhole camera click here: How to make a pinhole camera

WATCH THE ECLIPSE LIVE: A Slooh expedition team will be documenting the whole thing from the Faroe Islands, starting at 4:30 am EDT, or 8:30 am GMT. You can see the free live broadcast BY CLICKING here.

may the seasons greet you wellSCIENCE:  Although our sun is around 400 times larger than the moon, we are lucky enough to be able to experience total solar eclipses because of the fact that the sun is, coincidentally, 400 times farther away. Alongside experiencing an eerie darkness, those in Britain will also experience a dip in temperature by around 3oC during the event.  This is why they appear the same size in the sky.

Family GatheringThe last great SOLAR ECLIPSE was in August 1999 and it lasted 6 minutes and 29 seconds. The next Solar Eclipse of similar magnitude to Friday’s event which will be seen from Britain is on August 12, 2026. On that date up to 95 per cent of the Sun will be obscured.  Britain will not see a Total Solar Eclipse until September 23, 2090. I will be dead by then.

VERNAL / SPRING EQUINOX

Glowing Equinox LightWhat is the Spiritual significance of the Spring Equinox? This is a time of renewal & new beginnings.

There are two Equinoxes a year: Spring Equinox and Autumn Equinox.   Day length for each Equinox is exactly the same (12 hours) as the Night length.  The word – Equinox – is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night).

The Spring Equinox is the first day of Spring.  It is when day and night are of equal duration.  It occurs when the Sun passes the Equator moving from the Southern to the Northern hemisphere. The North Pole begins to lean toward the sun again.  Looking at all the dates of the Vernal Spring Equinox over the years they have occurred on 20 March in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. And will occur on the same date every year till 2020.

The Autumn Equinox is the first day of Autumn.  It occurs when the Sun passes the equator moving from the Northern to the Southern hemisphere.  The North Pole begins to tilt away from the Sun.

GratitudeMORE LIGHT floods to Mother Earth with the Spring Equinox.  New Light. New Life. New Insights. New Light.  The Light of the Rainbow has just been celebrated with St Patrick’s Day on 17 March. We light candles to signify great healing and cleansing.  We create a ring of fire around us energetically to help purify and cleanse our energy.  We anchor more light in our auric body.  No darkness only light.  All is clear with the Spring Equinox.  WE MAKE SURE WE ARE WELL GROUNDED.

CLEANING AND CLEANSING  We clean our energy with the Spring Equinox. We shake off the old dust, the old pattern.  We awaken to adapt to a comfortable cleansing process with the Spring Equinox.   We know we have to clean the cobwebs of our minds and our homes.  We know what we have gone through.  We know what has been said and not said. We spring clean our home, our car, our office, and our selves with the Spring Equinox. 

SpringNEW BEGINNING  It is a time of new beginning.  What are you beginning in your life with this energy?  What changes have you decided to make so you can have new beginnings.

RENEWAL It is a time of renewal.  What are you renewing?  It is a time of a renewal of your Soul.  With renewal comes refreshment.  With renewal comes fresh air and a new way of doing things.  A renewal brings a new perspective. A freshness like fresh crisp air.  A renewal is like the movement of the waves on the sand – constantly changing and creating flow in the renewal of your own life.  Allow the water to flow the changes and remove any resistance or restrictions to your flowing life.    

REBIRTH It is a time of rebirth: a time to rebirth something in your life.  A time to rebirth your Soul, your Spirit, your Life. What are you rebirthing?   A rebirth is like a new family, a new baby, a life-giving idea. My friend said a new shoe!  Well that is new.  She is rebirthing a new pair of shoes as her old ones have died.  Lovely growth for her shop I said to her! 

3 rare celestial portals of powerSPRINGING FORTH It is a time of springing forth – the seed has been planted and the bud is appearing in the fertile land.  It is Spring and new life begins.  It is a time to see the beginnings of what you planted a few months ago. Celebrate your Springing Forth in your life.  Do something spontaneously and easily; that you have not been able to do before; and you find yourself doing it with ease.  This is the Springing Forth energy of this wonderful Vernal Spring Equinox. Feel what you should do if you cannot think it.  This is a very emotional wobbling time as the Waters of Pisces carry you around.  This unsteadiness is not a bad sign.  It is the springing forth energy vortex that you know is preparing you for the newness and the spring in your feet. 

ResurrectionUNDERWORLD This time is the journey to the underworld of your life; which  represents your struggles, pain, suffering and issues.  It is also the journey through the underworld of your life – how you deal with your pain and issues.  It is the journey that takes you out of the underworld of your life – your  lessons, your initiation, your realisations and your new way forward. 

You make your own history; as you journey into your own inner darkness; and overcome it.  The Egyptians believe that when you die you journey to the Underworld to have your heart weighed.  In the Dance of Isis, Osiris and Horus that I do; I dance the story and pain of Isis at the death of her husband, Osiris, by her brother, Seth. She fights for her survival; and has to awaken through her deep pain; and liberate herself through a strong determined decision to find the parts of her husband scattered around the world.  She finds them and puts them together through her magic.  Isis, the Moon Goddess, mates with him; using her great magical hidden powers; which come to light when she needs them.  She becomes pregnant and births forth their son, Horus, the Sun God.  Later Horus avenges the death of his father, Osiris, by killing Seth.  The Circle of Life has been completed.  The fight over good and evil finds good winning in the end. 

This journey through the darkness leads to our enlightenment and our realisations. The darkness plays an important role in finding the light.  Through self-sacrifice we take on the suffering of the world – our family karma – our human revolution.  We set ourselves free and liberate ourselves from any restrictions or any old patterns that no longer serve us – but we can only do this when we go deep down into our pain and journey through the Corridor of Pain and come out at the other end; breathing freshness and fresh air. 

freshnessPERSONAL INITIATION & SELF REALISATION The Spring Equinox comes once a year to allow you your passage into your own Personal Initiation and Self Realisation after the Underworld Journey.  You WILL have gone through pain, struggles, sufferings, misunderstanding, lies, deception, recklessness, and mis-communication in the adventure of your life.  You have journeyed through the Underworld of your life and come out like a bud coming out of the rich fertile soil. 

What realisation have you had over the past three to four weeks?  This is so important with this energy.  Perhaps the realisation came with tears and pain.  The friend you thought you had; you do not. The thought you thought was true; is not.  The support you expected fell apart; and you were left to stand alone; on your own two feet.  What you thought you could not do alone; you did.  What you were afraid to do; you did.  This personal self realisation is your Trophy, your Temple Trophy, showing you your purpose, your reason, your initiation into the new truth of the situation and your life.  It is the enlightenment of your mind; that leads to the enlightenment of your body and spirit.  Welcome to your inner movements of Buddhahood and Human Revolution. In our workshop we will be doing a meditation to the Underworld to release any left over pain and bring us out completely free and liberated; ready for your own True Self Realisation and your next Initiation into Ascension.  Well Done. 

You are OKCELEBRATION comes after the successful completion of the struggle.  Many celebrate with rituals at sacred sites e.g. the Druids, Romans, Egyptians, Mayans and Essenes. The triumph of good over evil.  The triumph of light over dark.  The 3 Celestial Days of Power start the celebration with downloads on the 20, silence on the 21 and blessing water on the 22. A truly magnanimous portal to go through and survive. 

RESURRECTION The Spring Equinox, like the New Moon, is a time for the Resurrection of your True Self, your Spiritual Resurrection.  It has a very mystical living energy.  The energy of Resurrection always occurs after triumphing over the challenges life has set us.  We rise like the phoenix from the ashes.  You know deep down YOU ARE OK.  And you say I AM OK.  And I say YES YOU ARE.

FOR more insight you can click the link: the-spiritual-meaning-of-the-spring-equinox which talks more about the Energy of Now.  I got this part from the link.  The symbol of Resurrection is found in various cultures:

  1. To the Christians it is the time of the passion, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  new moon
  2. To the Ancient Egyptians it is a time of the resurrection of Osiris.  Isis puts his body together and resurrects Osiris.
  3. To the World the Egyptian Great Sphinx of Giza is a symbol of resurrection – it gazes at the rising of the Spring Equinox Sun. 
  4. To the Mayans it is the resurrection of the Mayan Maize God Hun Hunahpu.
  5. In Cambodia, the temple of Angkor Wat, aligns to the spring equinox, and depicts the scene of the “churning of the milky ocean”—the struggle between the forces of light and darkness.
  6. In Mexico at Chichen Itza, at the temple of the the feathered serpent Quetzalcoatl; Quetzalcoatl ascends the nine terraces of the pyramid on the Spring Equinox.

SUPER NEW MOON AND SUN IN PISCES

opposite directions

PISCES the fish swim in opposite directions.  The duality of the time is reflected in this movement.  We see life and death, agreement and disagreement, understanding and mis-understanding.  We see competition, jealousy, envy and lack of respect for self and others.  We see wanting to tell the truth and not doing so; for one reason or another.  We see throat chakra issues appear as sore throats and coughs.  We have feelings of being strangled and not breathing.  We have fear that suddenly consume us and then vanishes; to be replaced by confidence and bravado.  This is the energy of the times.  What is real and what is false?  Where in your life are you false?  Where in your life are you real? 

Welcome the New Moon in Pisces, a most auspicious time to have feelings that are unresolved come up and force you to face them; and heal the pain they bury deep in your life.  The past two to three weeks would have seen these issues arising to the forefront.  For those of you who have gone through any issues of vulnerability, being embarrassed in public or undermined; welcome to the dark journey to your underworld; which Pisces embodies.  Congratulate yourself that you survived the journey and you are now entering the Rebirth stage, the Vernal Spring Equinox. 

We have been swimming in a turbulent wave of emotions, in a tube-torus, in a whirlwind.  We have been thrown around by our emotions and feelings.  We have been hurt and thrown out of the washing machine.  We either landed crying, lying flat on the floor or on our feet.  Whichever way you landed is OK; because you still have no choice; but to continue with your life; and determine to find your internal happiness; and not be defeated by the experience.  Congratulations.   Stand up and stop being wobbly! If you are finding this difficult book a session with me and I will help you come back home to your true self and your own DNA blood.

EXCERCISES

DualityDUALITY  It is a time of looking at opposites in your life: ying and yang, good and evil, positive and negative, darkness and light, death and life, death and resurrection.  Create a mandala that balances duality. Create a collection of flowers with 2 different contrasting colours.  Engage with the duality of life and enjoy it. Appreciate it. 

BALANCING  With the Duality we want to Balance the extremes in your life. We give and take.  We take and give.  We rebalance ying and yang.  We balance the male and female within.  In the balance we receive our perspective to show and shine our light to the world boldly with ease.  Shine your inner light.  Shine your outer light.  Transfer your energy to BALANCE and GRATITUDE.  Do some random act of kindness to someone you do not know; and to someone you do know.  Forgive someone you would not really forgive.  Truly forgive them with this new budding energy of balance and serenity. 

RITUAL OF GRATITUDE  Make an offering.  Do a ritual.  Call forth balance in your life with this New Moon and Solar Eclipse and Spring Equinox.  The balance to allow yourself to grow into a new life into the Unknown;with ease and light.  Allow the liberation of your allowing to free you in the depth of your being.  Be the light you seek in others and yourself! 

Swimming in Crystal WaterSPIRITUALITY  In the NHS of Britain the mind is psychology, the body is biology and the spirit is religion. How can you merge all three and live life as a whole? The environment and culture play a great part; as do issues of poverty and war in the world.  Spirituality – What does it mean?  My wonderful friend, Mita Shah, a yoga teacher and wise woman; puts this so succinctly in her lovely newsletter:

The moment I say “spirituality”, people say, “Yes, I want to be peaceful.” You do not have to walk the spiritual path for peace. A glass of wine could do it or take a long walk and then lie down in the shade of a tree; you will sleep peacefully. Spirituality is not for someone who is seeking peacefulness. Spirituality is for someone who is seeking ultimate liberation, who is willing to shed everything that is false and arrive at the true nature of one’s existence.

You can click on her blog and read more on Spirituality – A Homecoming

Open Loving Inner Peace_thumb[7]_thumb[3]PLEASE /  THANK YOU  /  SORRY    One of the greatest ways of liberating oneself is knowing when to say Please, Thank You and SorryWhen do you say Please, Thank You and Sorry? I had a horrible experience with a wonderful woman who did not have the courage to say ‘sorry’ for an error in her behaviour.  Some people do not know how to apologise and say sorry.  Some people need to make you wrong so they can be right.  I was brought up to say Please, Thank You and Sorry from a place of power and confidence and a space of Win/Win.  Please if you can say these words to yourself and to others and liberate yourself from any pain stopping you for saying these healing powerful embracing soul fulfilling words Please, Thank You and Sorry. Thank you. Tx 

Going back to Mita’s newsletter:

When you allow life to happen in its ultimate glory, that is spiritual process. Spirituality is not about moving away from life but about becoming life. It is not about going somewhere, it is a home-coming.

SPIRITUAL QUESTS / SPIRITUAL PROCESS  I went of Bali for two weeks to see what truths would unveil themselves.  I met 4 new friends and 5 new characters.  Each in their own unique way supported me when I was crying – Three gathered around me while two moved away; saying nothing to me and not acknowledging my pain…..  The three would not leave me till I stopped crying; and agreed to come with them.  They were not going to leave me alone; by myself in my pain.  They stayed.  They supported me in my pain.  They held the space for me to cry and be vulnerable.  I felt empowered by my pain and empowered by their love for me.  Three strangers I had just met became my protectors. 

Iya & Toks - 7.7.03MOTHER’S DAY  When I got back to London I was surprised when my mother said she was waiting to see me and spend the day with me on Mother’s Day.  She was so happy to see me and talked non stop laughing and saying so many loving words.  I had my enlightenment in her flat. My pilgrimage was a success. Standing my ground in Bali, though it was painful for me on a very deep level, had created a ripple effect in my life.  Thank you Legions of Light.  Thank you Universe.  Thank you Angels of Light.  Thank you Ladies.   As Practitioners and Healers and Spiritual Coaches; the more healing we do in our lives; the better and happier we are in our own personal lives.  The journey through ones underworld is a very personal process.  Allow yourself your pain.  Do not be ashamed of it.  Embrace it.  Love it.  It is the poison that will turn to medicine and purify your life, your heart and your mind, body and spirit.  I  know this because I have gone through very very very deep pain – and some of you know this.  My triumph is the joy and laughter I hear in my heart when I laugh and when I smile.  I fly.  I fly. I fly.  Like the mermaid phoenix I fly and swim and glide.

PILGRIMAGE  Mita shares:

What we refer to as the spiritual process is that which delivers you to a dimension that is beyond your current perception of life. It is not a picnic, nor is it a journey. It is a pilgrimage. What is the difference between a travel, a journey and a pilgrimage? People move from one place to another for a variety of reasons. There are explorers who are always looking for virgin land that they want to put their footprint on, they want to prove something. There are travellers who are curious to see everything, so they travel. There are tourists who just go to relax. There are other kinds of tourists who just go to escape from their work or family. But a pilgrim is not going for any of these purposes. A pilgrimage is a way of getting yourself out of the way; if you do not budge, it is a way of wearing yourself out. A process of destroying all that is limited and compulsive and arriving to a boundless state of consciousness.

Shape Shifting CandelEVOLUTION  We evolve through our relationships.  We learn through our own personal human evolution and human revolution. Working through our EGO and other people’s EGO is a challenge; especially if it is the lower EGO as opposed to the higher EGO. 

MENTAL PROBLEMS In todays society dealing with mental problems the NHS gives medication; which is not always a cure – there are side effects with medication today.  Meditation is one way of allowing yourself to heal.  Remember that your life will tell you what your values are.  Allow meditation to help you and bring you back home to yourself.  Amen.  Namaste.

Day of Power 21 March 2015

BALI Day of Silence / Saka New Year / Nyepi Day

Yanta

The day after the New Moon in Pisces, the Solar Eclipse and the Vernal Spring Equinox we have THE DAY OF SILENCE IN BALI.  How auspicious.

LINKING IN:  We will be linking in with the rituals and ceremony from London to take part in the silence and will SIT IN SILENCE for ONE HOUR on the 21 March. If you can and you want to; SIT IN SILENCE FOR AN HOUR on the 21 March 2015.  Let me know how you do sitting in silence. Choose a time that is convenient and easy for you.

What is this about? 

Offers and Holy WaterNyepi Day in Bali is a New Year’s celebration unlike anywhere else on the planet. Also known as Bali’s celebration of the Saka New Year and the Bali Day of Silence, it is ultimately the quietest day of the year, when all of its inhabitants abide by a set of local rules that brings all routine activities to a complete halt. The roads all over Bali are void of any traffic and nobody steps outside of his or her home premises.  No Travel – no cars on the streets; except ambulances and police patrols and emergencies.  No Activity. No Fire.  No Entertainment.  No lights are turned on.  Total Darkness.  Total Seclusion from 06:00 to 06:00.  A time to relax and contemplate.

meditate

Nyepi is a public holiday in Indonesia, it is a day of silence, fasting and meditation for the Balinese people. Nyepi is a day reserved for self-reflection, and as such, anything that might interfere with that purpose is restricted. The main restrictions are no lighting fires (and lights must be kept low); no working; no entertainment or pleasure; no traveling; and, for some, no talking or eating at all.

The effect of these prohibitions is that Bali’s usually bustling streets and roads are empty, there is little or no noise from TVs and radios, and few signs of activity are seen even inside homes. The only people to be seen outdoors are the Pecalang, traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are being followed.

This unique DAY OF SILENCE marks the Saka Calendar, which is 78 years behind the Gregorian Calendar. Saka New Year 1937 falls on March 21, 2015. The next Nyepi days are March 9, 2016; March 28, 2017; March 17, 2018; March 7, 2019 and March 24, 2020.

BEFORE DAY OF SILENCE:  Village meeting halls known as ‘banjar’; and streets; feature papier-mâché effigies called ogoh-ogoh, built throughout the weeks leading up to the Saka New Year. Youth groups design and build their mythical figures with intricately shaped and tied bamboo framework; before many layers of artwork.

Temple Priest

The Day Before the Day of Silence every Balinese Household starts the evening with BLESSINGS at the FAMILY TEMPLE and continues with RITUALS called the pengrupukan; where each member participates in ‘chasing away’ malevolent forces, known as bhuta kala, from their compounds – hitting pots and pans or any other loud instruments along with a fiery bamboo torch. These negative spirits manifest as ogoh-ogoh, the papier-mâché effigies created earlier.  They are carried in a possession and then burnt to ward off the negativity of the ogoh-ogoh.

Then there is the DAY OF SILENCE.  Complete Silence. On the day after Nyepi, known as Ngembak Geni, social activity picks up again quickly, as families and friends gather to ask forgiveness from one another, and to perform certain religious rituals together.

bali men_thumb[2]

These are the Rituals Performed:
  • First, The Melasti Ritual is performed 3–4 days beforehand. It is dedicated to Sanghyang Widhi Wasa. The ritual is performed in Pura (Balinese temple) near the sea (Pura Segara) and meant to purify Arca, Pratima, and Pralingga (sacred objects) belonging to several temples, also to acquire sacred water from the sea.

  • Second, The Bhuta Yajna Ritual is performed in order to vanquish the negative elements and create a balance with God, Mankind, and Nature. The ritual is also meant to appease Batara Kala by Pecaruan offering. Devout Hindu Balinese villages usually make ogoh-ogoh, demonic statues made of bamboo and paper symbolizing negative elements or malevolent spirits. After the ogoh-ogoh have been paraded around the village, the Ngrupuk ritual takes place, which involves burning the ogoh-ogoh.

  • Third, the Nyepi Rituals are performed as follows:
    • Amati Geni: No fire or light, including no electricity
    • Amati Karya: No working
    • Amati Lelunganan: No travelling
    • Amati Lelanguan: Fasting and no revelry/self-entertainment
  • Fourth, the Yoga/Brata Ritual starts at 6:00 a.m. and continues to 6:00 a.m. the next day.
  • Fifth, the Ngembak Agni/Labuh Brata Ritual is performed for all Hindus to forgive each other and to welcome the new days to come.

  • Sixth and finally, The Dharma Shanti Rituals is performed after all the Nyepi rituals finished.[

Visiting Bali brought forth many new ways of living. 

The night I arrived I met up with my new friend JP Parker, who was introduced to me by the wonderful Mynoo Blackbym via Skype.   When I told her I wanted to see Bali from a spiritual perspective she introduced me to her friend and guide.  He became my Guide too.  He took me to Uluwatu Temple, Kuta Beach and Vision Villas, where I met the dashing smiling Roger Hamilton; who had just arrived from Singapore.  What was so nice was the my guide, Yanta Wayan  had already phoned ahead to Vision Villas to tell them I was coming.  Great initiative.  At Uluwatu I loved the actual temple priest blessing me with holy waterYanta Wayan  is an exceptional Guide. 

Names & Birthdays in Bali

There are four names in Bali that both men and women share. They are:  Wayan, Made, Nyoman and Ketut. The names are given to each child by the order of birth.  The first boy or girl is Wayan.  So I guess I would be named Wayan.  The second child is Made.  The third child is Nyoman. The fourth child is Ketut.   If a Balinese family have more than four children they start the name from number one and the fifth child is called Wayan.   Balinese people like using nicknames or family names to refer to themselves.

As a woman I am called “Miss Toks Beverley Coker” in London, in Bali I would be “Ni Wayan”.  Men are “Mr” in London; and “I” in Bali.  So a first born boy would be “I Wayan”.   This really is a different life style. 

The Balinese celebrate their birthday every 6 months.  Another wonderful new information to digest I thought.  I thought he just told me he is 43 English years; that makes him 86 Bali years. I decided to end the conversation.  Too much maths I thought.

Island of the Gods: Rituals Ceremonies Offerings

Walking around Ubud, Bali, I saw a lot of rituals being performed by the ladies in the hotels, the restaurants, the streets, the front of homes, the toilets, the gardens, in the road (middle of the road, corner of the road), the temples, the forest, the caves, etc.  It was absolutely fascinating watching the way the women walked and carried the offerings on their heads or holding the offering tray in one hand. 

Bali really is the Island of the Gods. I can say I have never seen so many rituals in one hour.   It was every day, every hour, every minute.  There was no stopping the never-ending procession of women doing rituals in traditional clothing with a smile on their face.  Fascinating. 

I found all this time consuming; and wondered at the expense of the offerings (flowers, fruits, incense, leaves, money, etc.) and clothing.  I realised they spent a lot of their money doing all this.  Even when working they will take time off to do their rituals.  They cannot live with out these rituals, offering and ceremonies.  Every two to four days is a religious ceremony.  I felt an element of self-sacrifice and order was needed to keep this cycle going.  I could see the practice of good thought, good speech and good deed in action everywhere I observed as they performed their sacred duties.   

There are fives types of ceremonies: Ceremonies for the Gods, for human’s important life events, for priests, for ancestors and for devils.  Rituals and Ceremonies between Spirits (good and bad) and Humans.  Offerings are made to the different gods – god of the temple, the family temple, the main temple, to nearby temples, and to original temples.  Offerings are also made to Nature gods, Mother Earth, and the Sea god.

In my hotel they were doing a lot of ceremonies for healing and protection.  I would be having my breakfast; and; then I would watch a woman slowly meandering; in her feminine attire; walking to the spot where she would be doing the sacred offering.  I would watch with reverence as she moved her delicate hands and her serene face would be muttering silently a prayer.  It really was a very peaceful process to watch.  I simply loved the style of walking – feminine, slowly, focused and gentle.  No rush.  I thought that is one thing I need to take away with me – no rush.  With graceful intent, purpose and focus; they made offerings of love. They are thanking and praising the gods. Feminine Woman Warrior Power.

offerings

offerings of loveI loved the colourful display of the offerings the ladies carried around.  Each object had a meaning.  The three major Hindu gods are symbolised by the offering of lime (Shiva), betel nut (Vishnu) and gambier (Brahma).  There were flowers everywhere. I was always seeing lots of marigold around: in water ponds, in toilets, in pathways and by doorways’.  I asked what the flowers represented and I was told that they represent different directions, and gods.  The Gods have their own colour. 

  • White-coloured flowers that point to the east as a symbol of Iswara
  • Red-coloured flowers that point to the south as a symbol of Brahma
  • Yellow-coloured flowers that point to the west as a symbol of Mahadeva
  • Black, Blue or Green coloured flowers that point to the north as a symbol of Vishnu
  • Centre is Shiva

You can read more about what is in the offerings on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canang_sari

Wearing White I love wearing white in London when I do my work; and I loved wearing white in Bali.  I loved the fact that the priest wear white and it made me happy as I remembered the dream I had before I left.  I was told to take white clothes and wear white. I love my messages and whispers. 

Lovely LadyI loved the feminine attire of the women.  I loved the fact they wore slippers.  I normally do not like slippers, but in Bali my toes seems to like them and feel no pain!  Magic already.

Visiting the temples, the sacred temples, the water temples, the rice fields, the monkey forest was such a treat for me.  I observed everything and recorded everything in my memory.  It pulled at a very deep portal; deep within me. 

It was nice to be like a school girl and learn again.  It was nice to start again and not be the teacher or leader. It was nice to learn from my Bali Guide, Yanta.  I loved it when he said the Hindu like the number three – they have three main gods – Brahma whose Holy Letter is A, Vishnu whose Holy Letter is U and Shiva whose Holy Letter is M.  Put together they make the word AUM pronounced OOOMMMMM.  They are the generator, operator and destroyer of life. 

I loved the school children in their uniform with their big smiles and determined academic manner.  I loved watching the people of Bali sit in circles on the floor, laughing, talking to each other, sharing happy moments and quality time together.  They are a people who come together as ONE in the truest sense.  They give life meaning; and; allow the concept of knowing the unknowable. I loved the concept of freedom they showed and their sense of freedom they expressed amongst themselves and their family.

Full Moon in Virgo & Sun in Pisces 5 March 2015

clip_image001[402] MICRO FULL MOON clip_image001[403] Element – Earth/Water

Happy Magical Blessings and Manifestations for this Wonderful Full Moon.  Sending you Blessings from the Healing Portal of Bali, in the sacred land of Indonesia.  Leading up to this Full Moon we had loud powerful healing vortexes of thunderstorms with cleansing rain.  The God of Thunderstorms really visited us in Bali. It was so loud and powerful and engaging.  Thank you.  So did the hot shining Sun and the glorious magical mystical Full Moon.  On the Full Moon here in Bali we have rain and then we had no rain.  It was like the veil was opening and then closing.  A great time for revealing hidden deep down truths, fears, and emotions; you may not even realise that you have.

Opposites

The Energy of Now

Contrasts The Full Moon is always a time of contrasts.  It reveals a different perspective of things.  It tells us to see ourselves as we truly are.  But can we really?  Can we really see ourselves?  By looking at your reflection in a mirror or water you can see yourself.  And would this image be the image you would like to see?  Would it be a true reflection of who you truly are? Would your thinking logical precise mind (Virgo) match your emotional feeling creative heart (Pisces)?  Do you do what is practical or what is emotional?  Are you torn between what to do?  If there is a misunderstanding do you then do nothing; and wait till you calm down; or till the situation calms down?  Do your emotions allow you to be practical and calm down; or do they allow you to be practical and react by raising your voice?  How spiritual are you?  How logical are you?  How emotional are you? How practical are you?  This is the deciding factor with this wonderful Full Moon.  Through the contrasts you know.  In the contrast is the knowing! In the contrast is the feeling! In the contrast is the doing! Or is it?

Full Moon BrightBalancing This Full Moon is about balancing our practical and emotional sides.  It is not about one winning over the other; it is about balance.  Did a friend run to your rescue and give you a helping hand?  That is the Piscean energy running to your help and taking practical constructive Virgo action to create a balance in the situation.  I was being mobbed by the street traders in Bali and my friend came to my rescue.  It was quite an aggressive experience and I was emotionally overwhelmed by the ladies touching my hair and insisting I buy something.  When I said NO, they followed me, and even threw the dress at me to buy it!  I felt I was being bullied to do something I did not want to do; and at the same time I felt guilty that I had to buy something; when I really did not want to.  Along came my friend, the lovely maiden of love; who calming and firmly maneuverer me out of the situation.  One minute I was overwhelmed.  The next minute I was removed from the situation to a place of ‘safety’.  This is what this Full Moon is about.  It seems to be testing our ability to balance extreme situations and see how we manage them.  How are we ‘rescued’? The imbalance and balance of life shows up in many ways.  The effects of this lovely moon will be very strong for the next few days.  Make good use of the magic of the moon. Namaste.

Earth and WaterDuality We have balance and imbalance. We have the two elements Earth (Virgo) and Water (Pisces).  We have rain that nourishes the land with fruits, vegetables and lovely green land. We have rain that destroys the land and wipes out lives and species.  We have land that is dry like the desert with no water, and land that yields no harvest or life.  The extremes of the pulsating vibration of live tests our karma (Pisces) and the way we respond to situations on earth (Virgo).  The need for flow is shown with the movement of Water over Earth.  We need to flow in our lives with ease.  We need Pisces to help us with our feelings and emotions and flow with ease through them.  We need Virgo to help us with the importance of grounding our energy and keeping us focused on what we are wanting and not loosing control.  Is someone pushing your buttons?  Recognise this and allow yourself to recognise how you are feeling (Pisces) and then use your mind (Virgo mind) to help you get focus.  Or it could be you are so rigid and set in your ways you do not move – you are stuck and you stagnate.  You move from one situation to another with difficulty and pain.  There is no ebb and flow.  When you look at a rock you see the water hitting it sometimes gently and sometimes aggressively.  Water softens the rock and erodes it slowly but surely.  Rock turns into little fragments of stone, then sand, and then very fine sand and then to nothing. Allow the duality of this Full Moon to embrace you with ease; and flow through you enabling, manifesting and co-creation.  This duality is a time of great manifesting from nothing or something.

Relationships  Grounding our EnergyIn the balancing of extremes we have the blending of opposites and the mixing of prayer and the healing of Mother Earth.  This Full Moon is a great time to give gratitude for what you have achieved and what you have.  It is a great time to be of service to Mother Earth.  Ask how you can be of service?  How are your relationships of service?  Are you all about me, me, me and you think you are about us, us, us? Are you doing yoga non stop to develop the self and doing nothing for the community and others?  Are you praying (Pisces) for peace on earth and taking action (Virgo) to create peace in your environment?  How are your relationships with others?  Do you hug and smile and jump and dance?  Do you resent anyone who is doing that and feel you need to bring them down a peg or two?  Do you resent another person’s happiness?  Or perhaps do not understand how a poor child can be happy playing with a bottle on a string, when your child grumbles about the Nintendo or whatever computer gadget not working?  Full Moon in Virgo and Sun in Pisces allows us to look at how we serve the land in our relationships.

Speaking to the AncestorsCleansing  This Full Moon in Virgo with the Sun in Pisces carries a very powerful healing vortex of cleansing, cleansing and more cleansing.  Memories of pain, deep hurt, betrayal, love-not-given, abandonment, rejection, being ignored, etc. will surface for you to deal with.  This is a time of great personal journey to find out what is right for you, as opposed to what is right for another person.  This is a time of great growth and blooming through thorough cleansing. This is a good opportunity to grow and expand your auric field. The element of Water is very cleansing.  It allows us to Surrender our pain, suffering, shame, guilt and issues that we manifest as a result of our karma with the parents we have inherited this incarnation.  Pisces allows in more intuition, while Virgo allows in more healing of the body;  and together they create magical cleansing, releasing, surrendering and allowing. 

SkaktiShivaChapters How aware are you about what is blooming in the chapter of your life and what has bloomed in your life?  How aware are you of what chapter has closed and what chapter is open?  I love it when a book closes and we come to ‘The End’.  The story is over.  That chapter has closed and it is the end of that chapter.  What chapter in your life has closed? There are books closing within us.  What books are closing within you in the story of your life with this practical Full Moon in Virgo. What new discoveries are you making about yourself with this Full Moon? The new discovery could be that a chapter has ended and you have full filled a long time wish and it is time to celebrate your life.  It could be that the chapter has ended and you no longer need to do whatever you were doing before?  Allow your own self discovery with this magnificent Full Moon in Virgo & Sun in Pisces. 

                           Singapore AirportChanelSingapore AirportsingaporeAirportMergingSingapore Airport Merg

Shape Shifting  Are you Shape Shifting before your eyes?  Shape Shifting is always around us; as seen in the pictures I took of a fabulous advert at Singapore Airport.  This is what I saw happen: the clock appeared in clear view radiant and magnificent; then a lady holding ropes clearly stands before you; then the clock and lady merge, then the lady fades in the background and then you see the clock again, then the lady – and the process continues.  Just like life. I am sure some of you have seen the advert already.  It made me think about the fullness of life and how we see one thing and then see another. What would this advert mean.  Some may like the advert and some may not.  Those who do not may find it offensive as it could mean that a woman is on a time, and is only good for a time, or outlives her youthfulness, etc. etc. etc. For me I found is very striking and beautiful.  It said to me it is a wonderful contract between something real and something man-made; both have one thing in common – they are beautiful works of precision (Virgo) which stir great emotion (Pisces).  Where in your life are you a beautiful work of precision that stirs great emotion? My answer?  In every area of my life I am a beautiful work of precision that stirs great healing creative emotion.  This answer applies to you to!  Thank you x

Arrived in Bali 2015-02-27 033Sometimes  Sometimes we are not sure what we want to do.  We are not sure if we are doing the right thing.  We wonder if we are wasting time taking a break.  We worry about all the work that has to be done.  We are saturated by daily living in the city we have forgotten to allow our own self space to breathe and to allow.  Sometimes we are not sure of the decisions we make; and then we do not make a decision.  Then something happens and a decision is made for you.  You have made a decision through someone else helping you to make a decision.  Life really can be a padaffle! Sometimes we take a journey; and we do not want to; but we still do it.  Sometimes we take a journey; and we want to do it.  Sometimes we just take a journey.  We take action and do something that gets us to live our lives in a different way.  We stop our thinking mind and we feel.  We come back home to ourselves.  We ponder.  We reflect.  The only true space is home within you – at peace.  So the journey of life is to your inner peace.  Your inner rebirth.  Your inner growth.  Your inner flower within you.  Your petal of self love. Sometimes life is not what is seems – what is hidden is revealed.  We may think we have all the answers and something happens to let us know we do not.  We many think we want to sit still and our body starts to move us around.  Allow your intuition to flow with the ‘Sometimes’.

Love  Let us put away labels in the name of love.  Enjoy this loving video. Click: Loving Video

Dancing through the Merging of Doing and Feeling  Doing something different – even if you feel fearful of doing it – is the quality of this Full Moon in Virgo.  Taking the practical stand of doing something and feeling the joy of doing it through the fear.  Merging with another family member of Mother Earth I dance with the Snake and the Snake Man who wraps the snake around my body.  He said: “Look the snake likes you at it wrapped its tail around my leg.”  It felt weird and I felt safe; even though the ladies around me were afraid.  Face the fear and do it anyway.  Face the challenge and do it anyway.  You will be pleased with yourself for doing it.  Full Moon in Virgo is celebrating taking practical action in your life. 

A Sacred Vessel  My friend, Stephanie Harrison, writes in one of her newsletters: “I would like to invite you to explore the 6th gate by simply reflecting on how you are in fact a Sacred Vessel – you are a living embodiment and holder of the light – you are the perfect representation of all that is good and true within this universe and it is simply a question of revealing your true luminescent nature to the world.  Above all, please let your true radiant nature shine out to the world.” Thank you Stephanie.  You can read up more about her work on www.lifeguidanceandinspiration.com

Homework

  1. ActionBe aware of where / how / why / what /  you are criticising and judging in others. 
  2. Check where you do the same thing – you are criticising or judging another person about. 
  3. What emotional drama are you playing out?
  4. What do I really need, to get rid off, to create space for flow and allow in something new?  How can you create more blooming in your life? 
  5. How are you expanding your life in the now? How are you of service to humanity and to the land?
  6. How do you show up being the Master of your Life. Virgo is practical action. What practical action are you doing?  Swimming, eating, weeding the garden, stretching, cleaning, writing?
  7. How are you a Sacred Vessel?  How are you a living embodiment and holder of the light?  How is the universe living in you?  How are you revealing your true luminescent nature to the world.  How are you allowing your true radiant nature to shine out to the world.
  8. Be open to shine your light and allow others to shine theirs too.  Let the shining moon in you and others glow. Allow the loud thunderstorms to shift your energy and ignite a spark of knowing brilliance in you.

Commitment to your happiness

Energy of Now

Wobbly  The past few days have been wobbly and uncertain as many of us have been tossed around with our emotions in our galactic ship.  We have been unsure, our minds have been clouded; and our words have not been able to come out properly, or even at all!  It really has been an emotional tornado in trying to arrive at a decision; to settle the mind in a clear way.  It’s like we have been walking in the fog, unsure of what to do. As we enter the portal of this magical New Moon, we begin to see clearer.  We begin to grasp stronger thought patterns.  We know we are at the precipice of change and the illusion reveals the reality of our lives.  How magical.

Hands of LightSpeaking Your Truth  Are you speaking your truth from a point of resentment, to make a point, to hurt and pretend you did not intend to hurt?  Are you sending an email to hit the person in the heart to score a point and win an argument or issue you  have in your head that you think is an issue, and it feels better to send it via email or text rather than converse with the person?  Are you assuming someone wants to help you when in reality they do not.  Are you realising that they are undermining your work, your life, or your way; just by being in your presence?  Double whammy New Moon in Aquarius is speaking your truth and hurting the other as you do so.  The lack of empathy, tactfulness and compassion hits you with this energy.  Rather than seek a ‘fight’, allow the element AIR to move through you – all the energy to move through you.  Really work on flowing the energy.  Sometimes what we think is our energy is the other person’s energy.  And at least you now know how they feel, and you can either work through it together, or part separate ways.  Sometimes we need to say Goodbye to certain situations and people.

Tightness Vs. Freedom   When we recognise ourselves in each other; we allow ourselves to be free.  With this knowledge; when ‘they’ express both the good and bad to us; we understand it better; and perhaps it helps us not to be too upset with ‘them’!  There are many ways of getting close in interacting with each other.  This may be one of the difficult ways to do this. The challenge is allowing ourselves to recognise that we have chosen this path together; and healing is needed for both parties to grow; otherwise, patterns of behaviour will be repeated in other interactions.  New Moon in Aquarius teaches us to BREATHE IN AIR into our skulls, pores of our skin, and, the in-between area of the skin and the skull. A good time to release any tightness in your physical body through breathing in the element of Aquarius – AIR.

ReceivingNothing changes until you do.  If your partner is upsetting you, look to yourself.  If any person is upsetting you, look to yourself.  Nothing changes until you do.  Be compassionate to yourself.  Really live realistically to change your attitude and behaviour.  We all know there are many tools to do this – Tantra, yoga, spiritual coaching, personal development, etc.  The most important thing that has to change is your BELIEF. Your beliefs will change your reality.  If you think poor, you will be poor.  If you think you will get the house, you will get the house.  If you are too busy to do the work that needs to be done to heal yourself, then I know that you must be comfortable with the dis-ease and the un-rest and the un-happiness you experience. If you are not willing to seek help, then you cannot be helped.  To change, you must know you need to change.  It does not matter if people tell you.  If YOU do not hear it, and know it, and decide to change, then there will be no change.  There is no need to preach to a closed door!

Chakra Balance7 Year Old Energy  There is a belief system that says a lot of our problems stem from our formative years – between the ages of one and seven.  Work to heal the Parent, Adult and Child enable people to open their hearts to more love; and to allow love to enter in; and in the opening, allow the receiving of more love in their daily and practical life.  This leads to having healthy and wholesome relationships.  You are the Master of Your Life.  If a 7 year old runs it, then there will be disaster in handling your decisions; especially if the 7 year old expresses itself in a relationship or business in the 45 year old woman/man.  Healing is required when you realise that the 7 year old you is running your life and your relationships.  Would you let a 7 year old child run your life?

Expressing Your Joy  New Moon in Aquarius is about expressing your joy and gratitude through your tears, being vulnerable as you express authentically your truth.  Not an easy thing to do.  It is not a sign of weakness.  It indicates a need to get closer to the people around you – to show you are vulnerable.  Revealing your fears and vulnerability in a relationship is a good sign, especially when the others realise that compassion is what is needed here.  To be vulnerable and then to be attacked by the person the vulnerability is expressed; shows the other person’s lack of integrity, understanding, compassion and may reveal a shadow side in them that you may have felt before, even if you did not want to acknowledge it. 

xxxholding hands Signs, Omens and Symbols  Watch out for signs, omens and symbols.  What are they telling you?  If you closed your eyes now and imagined yourself flying like a dragonfly or butterfly, where would you be.  Would you see a dragonfly or butterfly clearly?  Or would you see something different; like the distinct image of a red crab in the red background?  Clarity is coming, slowly but surely.  Go with the flow. We will be working with this energy in this New Moon Gathering Workshop, as we look for Signs, Omens and Symbols though I am not asking you to over-analyse things.  Stop over-analysing people, things and situations.  Stop being cruel and tactless with your words and behaviour.  Be gentle with yourself and others.  Watch more for empowering Signs, Omens and Symbols; rather than negative limiting blocking ones that make you feel intolerant of yourself and others.

Relationships  So many talks about relationships.  So many points of view.  So much to read about.  How about finding your own true inner relationship with yourself first before finding a relationship with another.  You have your own relationship issues to sort our first before going to make someone a ‘victim’ of your own issues.  How about starting with yourself first.  Healing your issues and working through them, recognising the role you may have played in creating your own pain; instead of blaming, pointing the finger, complaining, judging or denying. 

One I Love is MeValentines  We had Valentines on 14 February, which brought out a lot of talk about relationships – all types of relationships – not just emotionally personal intimate sexual relationships.  What did you do on Valentine’s Day?  Did you participate and celebrate it?  Is this the only time you do this in the year?  Or perhaps you do not celebrate Valentine’s Day because everyday is Valentines Day with your partner? 

Self LoveDid you buy yourself a Valentines Day card?  I did.  I felt so happy when I opened it on Valentines Day.  I felt loved by me, by the aspect of me I do not honour – the other side of me – the male side of me, as I am female.  I have taken a picture here so you can see that I practice what I preach. My partner thought it was funny that I got one for myself; when he got me two wonderful cards.  I smiled beaming:

“If I do not love myself and I exist because of the love you have for me, then I am basing my happiness on having you in my life.  Happiness is not based on having a partner.  Happiness is loving yourself and valuing yourself; enabling you to value and respect another. Happiness for me exists because, through revering my essence; I revere yours wholeheartedly.”    

It is very important to untangle yourself from requiring your partner to fill your needs.  It is important to be clear about yourself; and have the love you have always wanted; and believe you will get the love you want.  In private moments with yourself, you will discover your inner true self. In private moments with your partner, you will both discover your inner true united self.  Being more loving starts with yourself.  A healthy relationship is very important. 

Love of My Life

Tree of Life  What is your Tree of Life?  Is it just you and your immediate family?  Is it just you and your loved ones against the world?  The Tree of Life is how you choose to live your life.  You may blossom fruits and life force or you may not.  You may live in a home of joy and happy abundance or you many not.  You may be united or you may not. 

Double whammy New Moon in Aquarius comes to sit with us and asks us to look at our own individual Tree of Life and see how it relates to serving the world and serving humanity. For me the Tree of Life is a sanctuary of human love based on mutual respect, listening with ease and sharing with joy. It is the collective living together of the universal forces of life.  That is why I love celebrating the New Moons and the Full Moons.  Happy New Moon in Aquarius. 

GoodbyeSaying Goodbye is sometimes the best thing to do.  Saying Goodbye is sometimes the only thing to do.  We are saying goodbye to the year of the Horse and we welcome, on the 19th of February, the Chinese New Year of the Sheep / Goat.  This is their LUNAR NEW YEAR.  Happy New Year.  We are saying Goodbye to the old, and Welcome to the New Unknown.

Saying Goodbye is the best thing to do when we need to go home to sleep, when we need to catch our train/taxi and when we have partied enough. Saying Goodbye is the best thing to do when we know we will see the person another day, when we feel safe about our future and when we are ready to step into the unknown. 

Saying Goodbye is the best thing to do when YOU decide to set Yourself free of the pain and torment YOU feel in Your life.  You say Goodbye to Your pain and torment. You have had enough. You recognise what you want to change and get help.  You begin to let go of the need to hold on to a limiting belief or situation.  You forgive yourself and the other/s involved.  You can forgive yourself for allowing yourself to have the pain.  Recognise what You want to change and You are ready for change. Acknowledge you are ready for Change.  Take action and get help from someone who walks with you through Your pain; holding your hands. You do not need to do it alone.  Choose the person who feels safe to you, to help you access your unconscious mind and rewire it.   Saying Goodbye is the best thing to do at these times. 

When is Saying Goodbye the best thing for You to do? What are You Saying Goodbye to as You enter this Chinese New Year of the Green Wooden Goat/Sheep?

Happy Chinese New Year: Green Wooden Goat/Sheep  19/2/2015

  Fabulous symbol of auspiciousness, good luck, peace.  Goats and Sheep give meat, milk and wool to Mankind.  

Happy New Year.  It is the Year of the Wooden Sheep / Goat, which appears every 60 years. Here are some nice Chinese traditions I love and found interesting:

  1. Red is the key colour for the New Year as Red is the colour of prosperity and wealth.  It wards off bad luck and misfortune.  goat
  2. Wear red underwear to bring in good fortune.
  3. Give gifts of money in red envelopes to children and elders.
  4. Eat fish for good luck and surplus money.  This is because the Chinese word for ‘fish’ sounds like the word for ‘surplus’.
  5. Eat Chinese dumplings to bring more money and wealth into your life. The shape of the Chinese dumplings is the shape of old Chinese money – the ‘silver ingot’. 
  6. Meet up with family and friends. Have a Reunion Dinner with all the Australain_cashmere_goat-wikipediagenerations of your family. 
  7. Enjoy watching firecrackers, lion dances, and dragon dances. 
  8. Decorate your home in red e.g. buy red lanterns, red couplets. 
  9. Three Goats bring harmony.
  10. Offer a sacrifice (whole goat, chicken, duck, or live carp) to the God of Fortune – the Five Roads God and pray for good fortune for the coming year.  The Five Roads are the South Road, North Road, Central Road, West Road and East Road.
  11. Send the God of the Poor off to heaven on the 6th day of the Festival. Legend has it that even when you gave him clothes, he would tear them up and then wear them. People send him to heaven rather than see him poor on earth.
  12. The numbers 8 and 6 are lucky numbers.
  13. On the day of the New Year there are some things you should not do, such as:  Do not ask for a loan.  Do not let your children cry. Do not clean your home. Do not wash your hair. 

howlite crystalThe Year of the Goat is the year of great success through practical action.  It is not the year to sit and relax and do nothing. Yes you can relax and enjoy relaxing. Then get up and take action.  The Year of the Goat is an action year in a relaxed manner. You gather and collect your energies and build on them.  You support humanity and nurture yourself while doing so.  You enjoy the fresh air and natural resources for your good health. Keep your sleep and waking time consistent.  Really nurture yourself during this time – I mentioned this earlier in the year – 2015 is the year to nurture yourself.  Goat is practical and loves climbing high up the mountain.  We can see this as developing the Higher Self and our own personal initiation into our Higher Dimensions.  It has a wonderful energy of building things and creating wonderful building blocks in your life.  We anchor with strength. 

lovely  handsIf you feel you are not creative or you want more creativity, the Year of the Goat is a good year to call in more creative energy.  Great qualities to develop with this energy are gentleness, calm, ease of living, kindness and peacefulness.  Naughty qualities to watch out for are: laziness, feeling like a victim, dishonesty, complaining, blaming, not taking action, being controlled, and selfishness. When things go wrong, Goats blame everything and everybody, and every situation, and every circumstance. It is never their fault.  Goat energy needs to learn to take responsibility and step into its own power for it’s own spiritual evolution. We may want to ‘sacrifice’ ourselves or others – so there is a lot of shadow self to work with this year.
