Good morning lovely! How was your weekend?
This stunning weather has me out and about a lot more than I usually am at this time of the year.I usually feel drained by many social interactions, but in recent times, I’ve felt many internal shifts that have shown up as me being more external than my usual introverted self. Do you find this to be true for you as well?
At the start of each month and in conjunction with the new moon, I always sit in a deep healing meditation that gives me the opportunity to send reiki to my loved ones, as well as to everyone that is a client on my mailing list.
I’ve been doing this for a while now and it has recently occurred to me to share some of the healing messages that I receive with you as well.
Sometimes I go through each chakra with several reiki symbols, at other times through the different layers of the aura, or sometimes I’m guided to chant or to perform a specific energy healing technique.
WARNING – ITS A LONG ONE!!
“This September Reiki Healing and Energy Balance is for anyone from my tribe who feels aligned with the messages, sacred symbols and frequency of this healing. I ask that it be delivered and received via the highest possible vibration, assimilation and integration process. I call upon the healing transmission that is aligned in the perfect way at the perfect time and in accordance with their highest soul alignment. I ask that this healing amplifies feelings of grace, communication, trust, love, expression, insight, connection and the ability to receive with ease. And so it is. Aho.”
WHAT IS IT WITH ALL THESE 9’s?
September is the 9th month of the year and in traditional numerological circles, the number 9 the last of the cardinal numbers, and can often be viewed as the most worldly and sophisticated of all numbers with a greater capacity for global and humanitarian consciousness.
In kundalini yoga, the subtle body (or the subtle layer of your aura) is known as your 9th body. The Subtle Body is transparent and etheric. It contains wisdom and the knowledge of Infinity. The Subtle Body has a very close relationship to the Soul…it is said to carry the soul gently on when it leaves this lifetime.
is the 2016 is also a 9 year (2+0+1+6=9), which suggests a year of many natural endings.
This month could very well be a time for many natural endings to either ignite or take their final form. The reiki energy that has been channeled is to assist you during this heightened emotional transition.
For new beginnings to take a solid form with a sturdy foundation, our endings need to have completed. One of the many things that prevent this from occurring seamlessly is our attachment to scenarios or relationships ‘ending nicely’.
The catalysts for change are not always easy nor are they pleasant, but they are essential in helping us to move in to the next realm of our healing, or in some cases, the next stage of our relationships.
If we keep waiting for things to ‘end nicely’ it may very well mean that they never will end, and you’re preventing yourself from not only moving forward
NEW MOON ECLIPSE IN VIRGO
Virgo is a sign that is synonymous with attention to detail. In extreme cases, Virgoan characteristics can be anal and err on the obsessive-compulsive nature, but when balanced, there is a beautiful display of intelligent, analytical practical, reliable and even modest tendencies.
We receive the beautiful new moon solar eclipse in Virgo at these times:
SYDNEY: September 1, 7.03pm
LONDON: September 1, 10.03am
MONTREAL/NEW YORK: September 1, 5.03am
AUCKLAND: September 1, 9.03pm
PARIS: September 1, 11.03am
It’s worth finding out where your moon sign is in your chart as this can be a helpful indicator regarding how you process your emotions.
The New Moon eclipse quickly moves to clash with Saturn, which suggests that it might just be time for us to really confront our fears. Saturn is the planet that not only rules our karma, but is also affiliated with sorrow and regret and things connected with the past.
FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN PISCES
This is a time to attract what you truly desire. Eclipses bring endings and beginnings and almost always shake up our lives.
This is a time of heightened sensitivity around your feelings, especially as Pisces is not only known for being one of the (if not the most) sensitive sign of the zodiac, but also the most empathic.
Many astrologers suggest that it’s because of the combination of Pisces being a mutable (flexible by nature) star sign, in addition to it having absorbed a little bit of every other star sign by being the final sign in the zodiac
We receive the beautiful new moon lunar eclipse in Pisces at these times:
SYDNEY: Saturday 15 September 2016 5:05:06 am
LONDON: Friday 16 September 2016 8:05:06 pm
NEW YORK: Friday 16 September 2016 3:05:06 pm
LA: Friday 16th September 2016 12:05:06 pm
THE SPRING EQUINOX
Spring is coming for us here in Australia, and although it has certainly felt like it’s already arrived for many of us in the last month, what we’ve experienced and will probably continue to experience up til late October are a few more false Springs.
The Equinox officially opens the spring portal at the end of the month where day and night are equal in length for the last time this year. (The first time this year occurred back in March during the Autumn Equinox – and obviously this is referring to the southern hemisphere).
This year we will celebrate the ox right after the Retrograde has officially ended and one of the best ways to balance your body, is to honour your nervous system by balancing the right and the left hemispheres of your brain.
This can be done via the traditional nadi shodana, also known as alternate nostril breathing.
ALTERNATE NOSTRIL BREATHING – NADI SHODANA INSTRUCTIONS
1. You can practice this breath in any seated position. Make yourself comfortable by sitting cross legged or even by sitting in a chair.
2. Position your right hand in Vishnu mudra by folding your pointer and middle fingers into your palm, leaving your thumb, ring finger, and pinky sticking up.
3. Bring your thumb to the right side of your nose and your ring finger to the left side.
4. Close your eyes or take a soft gaze downward. Inhale and exhale once to prepare.
5. Close off your right nostril with your thumb.
6. Inhale through your left nostril.
7. Close off your left nostril with your ring finger.
8. Open and exhale through your right nostril.
9. Inhale through your right nostril.
10. Close off your right nostril with your thumb.
11. Open and exhale through your left nostril.
12. Inhale through your left nostril.
13. At first, you might only make it through a few rounds of this breath. Try to work up to doing at least 10 rounds. You can also take a break and then resume the exercise.
14. If you mind begins to wander, focus on counting the length of your inhales and exhales or on the sensation of your breath on the skin under your nose. It may feel cool as you inhale and warm as you exhale.
15. If you ever begin to feel light headed, release both nostrils and breath normally.
Yep, it’s happening again from August 30 to September 22. The planet of communication is moving backwards during the zodiac’s most anal and attention to detail star sign – Virgo.
During a mercury retrograde, we might experience clashes with loved ones or colleagues, or someone from our past might pop back into our lives for an unexpected visit.
It’s also the time when technology can go a little haywire (or when we blame things going wrong on a retrograde!) so it’s often a good idea to get your paperwork sorted, and de-clutter the things in your life that you no longer need or use. (In my case, its about finalising my tax for the last financial year!)
Does this mean our life gets placed on hold until this period is over? No, of course not! We still need to travel, get married, move house, sign contracts for new jobs etc etc.
It’s just that doing all of this (i.e. getting on with your life) while the planet of communication is moving backwards means it’s handy to be a little extra cautious when we cross our ‘t’s’ and dot the ‘i’s’.
A FINAL NOTE – THE POWER OF YOUR WORDS.
This month sees us greet a lunar and solar eclipse, the Spring Equinox for us antipodeans (the Fall Equinox for our American and European siblings), as well as a Mercury Retrograde.
It’s a big month.
It’s a month where you have the opportunity to see the power that your words have in your life more than ever. Remember, if you say it and you feel it, you can have it. Your power to manifest your reality is potent, so much so that.
According to Spirit Voyage, “when your ‘Subtle Body’ is strong, you are very calm and have enormous finesse and intuition. You have a refinement in speech and understanding and learn things very easily. There is an intuitive, open grace and ease about your demeanor. When your Subtle Body is weak you are awkward and easily misled. You may be gullible and crude in your speech”.
My personal experiences in the last few years have meant that I am extra cautious with my speech, and even so, I had an interaction with a therapist last week who kindly showed me that I still have a long way to go regarding my self talk and my predisposition to detach from pain by using humour as a protection.
The reiki healing and energy balanced that I have channeled for this month is specifically tailored to your strengthening your Subtle Body. Speaking kindly, removing coarse words from your vocabulary, and aligning your actions so that they match your words also help.
As usual, I’ll be running free group healings every Wednesday night so feel free to join us over at my private Facebook group. I’d love to see you there so we can interact a little more closely.
