Today, as I prepare for the New Moon and also my Ho'oponopono healing group I decided to pull a card and see what the energy was for today. It ended up being two cards and the message is beautiful and very appropriate. If you wish to be a part of the New Moon healing group tonight, please check out my home page for the details. If you are unable to join the group, but would still like to be a part of this healing, I have designed the manual so that you can do this in your own time and space.
To quote a good friend..."you can't make this stuff up!" Both cards that flew from the deck this morning are preparing us for our healing journey. The timing is divinely guided that we should join in circle tonight and facilitate a personal healing. See Only Love, this is what the Ho'oponopono-Reiki healing is all about - releasing anger and hurt so that we may focus on love and joy. Let Your Past Go, exactly what we will be healing, the thoughts, emotions, and feelings so that we are in peace.
The New Moon arrives today and is in the house of Aquarius. Once again we are going to experience a super moon and as a special added bonus, drum roll please, this new moon is also known as a black moon!
Usually, there are only three new moons in one season, the period of time between a solstice and an equinox – or vice versa. However, there are four new moons in between the December 2014 solstice and the March 2015 equinox. Some people call the third of these four new moons as a seasonal Black Moon. Not much information is around on the significance of a “black moon” but I felt it should be mentioned.
The super moons strengthen our impact for change. Given that this New Moon is also a black moon, it enhances the tendency to turn inward. “BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD” is what is coming to me. This is the year to empower yourself, your intentions that you set right now should reflect this. On the 19th we enter the Chinese New Year of the sheep, a gentle year is promised with this yin energy. We collectively are being given the opportunity for personal greatness this year, and I think we should all jump on the proverbial band wagon and get er done!
Celebrate this New Moon with some me time. Whatever allows you to feel pampered and special set aside some time to indulge yourself today. It can be as simple as booking a massage to as elaborate as a mini vacation. No matter what you decide to indulge in, allow yourself to quietly meditate on where you would like to go this year, what area would you like personal growth in? Write them down in your journal. Do not try to figure out how you are going to achieve them, just allow them to brew and lead you in the direction you need to go. Be ready, in this way you will be able to embrace the new potentials emerging in your life as they happen. Welcome to a wonderful year of amazing! Celebrate you on this beautiful New Moon day.
Decided to pull some cards for us today. Two of Michael flew out of the deck as I was shuffling - "It will be better if you just make a decision!" I thought about this for a moment and came to the conclusion, that yes, once we stop analyzing a problem or situation and just make up our minds on which direction we are going to take - a release comes. It can often feel like a weight has been lifted from us, and we wonder what took us so long to decide. Our hearts might want one thing, but our minds will be telling us something different. An internal conflict ensues, and we avoid making a choice! It seems daunting, and by avoiding making a choice we are indeed choosing one aspect - either our heart's choice or our minds. We might not see it that way, but we are. Think back over your life where you avoided making a choice and then after the fact went "I should have done that"
Today we are being asked to make a decision, and it has come across loud and clear that we must take control of this situation. No matter if we are in internal conflict or not, and no matter what others are telling us is the correct way to do something. If you feel a slightly strong pull in one direction, go for it. It comes to me that, that is what living is about. It is about making choices in each and every moment, it is not about avoiding them. Avoiding making up our minds, or going for something we truly desire places us in a position to just exist. Or in the place of not being in control of our own lives.
I shuffled the deck again, asking "what supports Two of Michael?" Two cards flew out this time - The Empress and Decision! I giggled and said message heard!!

Archangel Jophiel is known as the angel of beauty. She can help you see the positive in any situation. Ask Jophiel to help experience beautiful emotions and thoughts. She is also known to visit people via the scent of roses, so if you smell this fragrance, know that she is assisting you in that moment. Ask Archangel Jophiel for guidance whenever you need to be able to see the way clear to freedom and joy. Call upon Jophiel whenever you need a boost in how you feel about yourself, your life and the world.
You are being called to break free of anything that is holding you back! Archangel Jophiel can help you release any feelings of helplessness or fear that are creating a sense of entrapment. The entrapment you feel is not real and is stemming from anxieties that are not based in reality. The good news is that the limitations that you perceive as hindering your process are self-created and therefore can be uncreated! You can free yourself with the help of God and the angels.
Check in to ensure that you are not overly focused upon material things in life. Heaven acknowledges that you, like everyone else, have physical needs. However, your attention of accumulation of possessions might be out of balance. Inquire why you want these things? Are you trying to fill an emotional void? What you’re really craving is inner peace through a spiritual path.
Negative thinking can keep you from moving in the direction of your heart’s desire. Ask Archangel Jophiel to keep your thoughts flowing in a positive direction. Allow your spiritual wings to carry you away to the life of your dreams.
A focus on material possessions
A need to detox
A lack of self-confidence
Refusal to face the truth or to take personal responsibility for the situation
I think comfort food has gotten a bad rap! Lets face it, it is probably food we should not include in our diet often, but sometimes it just lifts the mood and makes a person feel better.
I don't often have bad days, but today was one such day. I was very upset and barely holding it together. Which, if you know me is not really normal. I am typically the calm in the storm and the one supporting those having a bad day. I will give myself a pat on the back for just allowing my emotions to be present. You see, a few years ago I would have stuffed them deeper than the deepest sea and carried on as if nothing was wrong. I cried more today than I have in a long time. The tears felt like a beautiful release, yet there was a part of me that was wondering if I was going to turn it into a pity party. Although my pity parties are usually anger driven when I fall into one, so it was just a good release.
I digress, during this feeling crappy and weepy, some cookies appeared. I was offered one, and I said "I was trying not to eat my emotions" I used to eat my emotions as well and have really been conscious of that for 10 years. That cookie did look good and so I decided that one cookie was not really eating my emotions. That cookie tasted like it would have any other day, but within 10 minutes I felt better. That small cookie had secret powers! Ones that I did not know it held. The power to actually turn my outlook and mood around. The background story was still there, and I was still sad, however, I felt like I had been given a glimpse that all would be ok.
Just for good measure... I had another cookie...and enjoyed each bite as a bright spot in another wise gloomy day. I honored the power of said cookie by savoring it fully! Giving thanks to such a humble food for lifting me up.
Sometimes we just need comfort food. It does not mean we are out of control or that we are avoiding our emotions or issues. We are nurturing ourselves.
The amazing thing is that now I am sitting here wondering, if this small cookie had that kind of effect, how do other foods I eat play a part in my wellbeing? I am encouraged to give it a go and pay attention to what my body is saying when I eat the food to fuel me mind, body and soul.
The full moon in February falls on February 3, 2015. One day after Imbolc or St Brigid’s day, which celebrates the half way mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox, and Groundhog Day. This full moon is known as the Full Snow Moon, it was said that the heaviest snowfalls happened during this time. It has also been known as the Full Hunger Moon due to supplies laid over for the winter dwindling.
The word February is born from the Latin word Februarius, from Latin februare meaning to "purify" or "expiate." February is a unique month in that the holiday season is truly over, we have used January to get back into our normal routine and now we are looking forward to spring. It has been called the transition month. The perfect time to finish off projects so that we are ready for the return of warmer days when we will want to be outdoors.
Using the thought “to purify”, what can we release in our lives in the form of finishing off projects and seeing where we are at with any goals we made back in January? Anything that you feel needs a breath of fresh air to re-invigorate it.
To do this make a list of all the things you wanted to get done this winter. Cross of those you have completed and start itemizing the rest of the list in the order of importance to you. This works equally well for any resolutions or goals you made in January. It could be a simple as reading a book you have wanted to read for a few months. Now is the perfect time, winter is still upon us, and our homes are cozy and warm. From now until the new moon see how many of those items you can complete and cross off your list.
We come to sit with you, soothe your brow and hold your hand, and we ask that you open your heart and mind and hear the message we bring to you today. It does not matter when you are reading this, when you need to hear our message you will find this and know without a doubt that we guided you here today.
You are worthy, YOU ARE WORTHY, you are worthy. How does that feel as it washes over your soul? You are worthy, no matter what has been spoken or unspoken to you or about you, you need to embrace this state of being and know it to your very core. No more can you hide behind the words and thoughts of others. You need to purify yourself from those thoughts, as they hold you back from your brilliance. There are many prejudices in the world, and perhaps the most insidious are the ones you have developed about yourself. Peer pressure, parental influence, teacher control, management in the workplace, abusive relationships, emotional blackmail – all of these over the course of your life, can lead to feelings of not being worthy, and not meeting the expectations of others. Those prejudices would not be truth, yet you would see them as such and hold them like precious treasures, pulling them out to polish on occasion, keeping them alive.
Understand that you are the caretaker of yourself. You alone can change. Do not allow others to define you or your worth. We are offering you a renewal, so accept it, and with compassion we will gently cleanse your spirit of any feelings of unworthiness. We are here to help you forgive yourself and others, and set into motion the healing that needs to take place so that you may fully step into your brilliance with confidence and self-assuredness that you are indeed loved, and worthy of all you can ever dream of, and more.
You are ready now to accept this, and in fact you have always known this on a soul level. All the world is anxiously awaiting for your contributions. The time is now to put yourself first and honor your knowledge, the knowledge that you can accomplish and achieve anything. It is time to do what is right for you. Your past has led you to this moment, and it has prepared you with many ups and downs. You have weathered them all by doing the best you were capable of doing. Now you stand on the precipice of having the life you want, and it is time to take that leap of faith. Faith through the knowledge that you are truly worthy of the best life has to offer. How else would you have arrived where you are today if you did not have faith, and somewhere deep within you, know you are worthy? Step into the future with the knowledge that you are ready.
You are worthy! We will walk beside you and gently remind you when you fail to feel you are.
Always thinking, always observing, always wondering and pondering the things that make life go round.
