Thursday 11th November is Armistice Day to commemorate all those who died in World War 1 and 2. Poppies are traditionally used for this. The event is marked every year on the 11th November date itself but a bigger commemoration takes place on the nearest Sunday; this year Remembrance Day is Sunday 14th November.
I personally see this as an opportunity for a very cathartic release of all the sorrow, grief and disappointment for the thousands of families who were directly affected by WWI and the souls of all the millions who died, especially those whose bodies were never repatriated to their homelands. It's a pertinent day to undertake a meditation and send our love and gratitude to these people who selflessly gave up their lives.
We also have the annual 11:11 Energy Portal. With many people worldwide recognising the 11th November as a powerful date, this, in itself, will create a heightened energy on the day. The effect of a high number of people all having positive expectations on the same date, due to the impact of quantum physics, will make it even more significant.
I will be offering a low key 11:11 event in Surrey (Guildford/Shere) with a few locals (contact me if you live locally and would like to join similar events) but if you want to positively mark the occasion, simply sit or lie down at 11 am (or pm) for 15 mins, thus spanning 11.11 on the clock, and imagine holding hands with other healers, lightworkers & positive thinkers all over the world. Send love & gratitude to all those who gave their lives selflessly in mankind's many wars, and imagine a safe world for all of us to look forward to living in.
Poignantly, three years ago was 100 years since the end of World War One, making it an even grander occasion. I marked 11th November 2018 by visiting the 'Beyond the Deepening Shadow' flame installation in the Moat of the Tower of London. This year it will be 103 years since the end of WWI and 76 years since the end of World War II, athough it happened earlier in 1945 than November.
Rob Heard, a talented Somerset based artist, created 72,396 shrouded calico figures, one to represent each member of the British and Commonwealth forces who died during the battle of the Somme (which raged for several months from 1st July 2016) and whose bodies have never been recovered or who has no known marked grave. Whilst their names are engraved on the CWGC (Commonwealth War Graves Commission) managed Thiepval Memorial, near the Somme battleground in northern France, some surviving relatives are seeing this as an opportunity to symbolically bring home the body of their loved one(s). See my YouTube video about the Shrouds and an interview with Rob himself.
It took Rob 4 years to create these figures and, for the centenary, they were displayed in an artistic installation at South Park Lawn, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (near Stratford, London) - see a video of Rob creating the figures and the installation being set up. More details here: Queen Elizabeth Park Shrouds of the Somme. After the exhibition closed, the shroud figures were made available to purchase, see Rob's Shrouds of the Somme website for details.
Traditional festivals like this helped communities to feel connected, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives.
Through Harmony Healing, Joanna offers a wider spectrum of events designed to nurture your welbeing. If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations. The next one is on Thursday 18th November at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT +1). Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal) or half price to RSE graduates. There are multi-buy packages for regular attendees. Book at the Harmony Shop.
During these monthly sessions, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. And, most importantly, it's a step towards making a difference to the global predicament.
Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing, to bring balance and harmony. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) has been modularised so that Level One (introduction) is now available to complete online as 3 units. All the units can be taken alone but together make up the RSE 1 syllabus. The below modules commence a new cycle and run on UK evenings for six consecutive Wednesday evenings, also offering US friendly afternoon time slots.
Khemitology (£88) = 1 unit, 3 x 2¼-hour Wednesday sessions, 7.15 - 9.30pm (UK time = GMT), 10th (now started, but late starters can be accommodated), 17th & 24th November. Missed sessions can be caught up by watching video recordings. For details and to book, see Khemitology.
Mindful Alignment with your 11-chakras and Axiatonal Awakening £66) = ½ unit, 3 x 2¼-hour Wednesday sessions, 7.15 - 930pm (UK time = GMT), 1st, 8th and 15th December. For details and to book, see Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness
Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest Bathing+ Sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits.
Reyad Sekh Em® is an ultra high vibration healing system combining ancient Egyptian philosophies, alchemy, angelic elemental healing rays, sound vibration, sacred breathing and etheric crystalline energies. The next series starts with Khemitology on 10th November, for three Wednesdays, then Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness on 1st December for a further three consecutive Wednesday evenings.
If you would like to experience one of our spiritual offerings (meditation, reading, 1:1 healing, a Forest Bathing+ session or a full mentoring course), why not ask for a Harmony Healing gift voucher for a birthday or other celebratory occasion?
