New Year, New Vision online course for 2022

Wednesday 6th October, New Moon @ 12:05 UK time (BST) - time for abundance ritual

7 Sep New MoonWednesday 6th October @ 12:05 is the New Moon.

Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing balance and wellbeing into our lives.  My next lunar cycle study course starts tonight, Wednesday 6th October - Thursday 4th November.*See below for details.

The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. 

It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. 

There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.


Any New Moon is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board. 

Gardening by the moon has been practised for eons. It's not about planting at night, it's about being in harmony with the natural growth patterns of plants.
 
The moon progresses through four ‘phases’ or ‘quarters’ , each of which lasts about 7 days. Starting with the New Moon (today), the moon waxes (grows larger) and more visible.
 
There is a daily increase in light until the Full Moon is visible. After Full Moon, the light wanes (reduces) gradually back until New Moon, completing the lunar cycle. In the same way that the moon influences the rise and fall of the tides, it has gravitational impact on the moisture in plants (sap), the soil and water table. These effects are aligned with the lunar cycle. 
 
For sowing and harvesting, we need to be in harmony with the flow of moisture as it is drawn up the plant into the stem and leaves, fruit and seeds. Or down into the root zone with the gravitational pull of the moon for root vegetables. New Moon is not a good time to plant in your garden.

Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing balance and wellbeing into our lives.  My next lunar cycle study course is Wednesday 6th October - Thursday 4th November.

new moon new vision 2* Lunar Cycle Alignment Programme
This lunar cycle programme applies the transformational properties of spiritual alchemy to help you feel rejuvenated. It's a special one lunar month empowerment and attunement programme combining the solar & lunar balancing with various ceremonies throughout the month. The next Moon Alignment Programme begins with the New Moon on the 6th October and culminates with the New Moon on 4th November.
 
Daily Practice and a Supportive Community
We use an active WhatsApp group to work through the 28 Mansions of the Moon, as identifed in my sister Angela McGerr's Angel Almanac book) by connecting with the daily named guardian angels of the lunar cycle.  This enables us to utilise the supportive energy of each lunar phase to move through life challenges and embrace new opportunities.
 
Attuned and Aligned
The current programme includes distant attunements to the Earth, moon, sun & stars (attunements take place on the New Moons plus the Full Moon). The cost to participate is £155. 

This is intended to be a fun and participative event (though some activities will be recommended rather than compulsory), with members of the group supporting each other throughout the programme. Participants will be joining in from their home location, with at least 6 online virtual group mentoring sessions (totalling over 11 hours) and therefore receiving their attunements by distance, with e-mail and What's App support. See this video to find out what three of the 18 participants loved about the inaugural version of the programme this year (called New Year New Vision) and how the next April/May course would compare. This course will differ in as much as the Celtic Festival is Samhain (Halloween) and we have no signifiicant numerological dates like the 555 in May.  It was a testament to the first course that 8 of the original participants chose to repeat the course two months later.
 
The next New Moon Vision courses is Wednesday 6th October (tonight) to Thursday 4th November, incorporating 31st October Samhain (aka Halloween).

Testimonial from recent participant

"As we're almost at the end of the course, but still the beginning of a journey, I thought I'd share a few of the things that have changed for me during this moon cycle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have more space within ... I can literally feel it - possibly as a result of the Soul Star and Earth Star Chakras attunement, and also because of the releasing that has been happening over the last 2 weeks.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have recovered a routine which brings about a more productive day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My brain has tuned into the fact that I need to lose weight ... I've let go of snacking, I'm having beautiful detox baths and have done the oil pulling. I am doing daily dance exercises.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am meditating more and got back on track with daily self-Reiki.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm seeing the bigger picture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am generally more focused.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Such positive stuff for everyday living! ♥"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Monday 4th October, Feast of Francis of Assisi & World Animal Day

04 October Francis of Assisi DayMonday 4th October is the Feast of Francis of Assisi in the Christian Calendar, so it is appropriate that it is also World Animal Day since St Francis is the Patron Saint of Animals and the Environment. It is a popular date for animals to be blessed.

St Francis, who founded the Catholic Church’s Franciscan order, lived in Italy between approximately 1181 and 1226. He is remembered for his love for animals and nature and his generosity to the poor, as well as well as his willingness to minister to the lepers.

In 1228, shortly after his death, St Francis was cannonised (pronounced a Saint) by Pope Gregory IX. The Pope also laid the foundation stone for the Basilica of St Francis d'Assisi, Italy, which is a UNESCO world heritage site. See timeanddate.com and Wikipedia for more.

So today's the day for appreciating your pet(s).  Like all energy healing modalities, Violet Flame Healing is a simple and safe technique you can use on your pets. We have Violet Flame of Amenti training on Thursday 15th October. More details below.

Scarlett with LilyThis image shows our @lilytheoneeyedcat (she has her own Insta account since losing one eye) enjoying snuggles with my daughter. I wonder if animals have a Human Appreciation Day?

Sunday 3rd October, London Pearly King Harvest Festival

Pearly KingSunday 3rd October, being the first Sunday in this month, is traditionally the Pearly King Harvest Festival at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, offering a spectacular display of historical London. More at ProjectBritain Website.

The Pearly Kings & Queens are a popular Cockney tradition dating from the 19th century. It started when a young boy covered a suit with pearly buttons to raise money for the poor at fairs and charity events. Other boroughs followed suit and got their own Pearly King or Queen. The Pearly King image is the author's property. The model is unknown but willingly posed for the photograph; there is no commercial gain from the author's use of this photograph.

Tuesday 28th September, Confucius' Birthday and Teachers Day in Taiwan

Teachers DayTuesday 28th September is Teachers Day; conventionally the date of Confucius's birthday, falling on the 25th day of the eighth lunar month of the Chinese calendar. The roots of this traditional ceremony dates back to the time of the Zhou Dynasty.

Many countries with Confucian cultures hold annual commemorations, especially mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau and South Korea. In Taiwan, it is celebrated on 28th September, akthough in Hong Kong it's on the third Sunday of September. The birth of Confucius is not a public holiday, but it is an official public holiday for workers (not including teachers) in Taiwan, where it's known as known as Teachers’ Day.

By keeping traditions, Chinese communities retain a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony.

Sunday 26th September, National GetOutside Day in the Uk

Embrace GetOutside Day by Savouring the Approach of Autumn
Guest Blog by Katie Robinson, Co-Founder of Harmony in Nature

Once the days start to feel cooler and shorter, it’s very tempting to stay inside with our heating, rather than add on extra layers and step outside; but it’s well worth the effort! If you can go out into a clean natural environment, that’s ideal, but observing plants in a pot, listening to the birds as the sun starts going down, feeling the breeze or sun are all ways to feel a sense of connection with nature, which soothes our mind and body.

When we have the right clothing and footwear, usually plenty of layers, and a spare, we can happily stay outdoors for hours. Even longer if we take a hot drink and a snack! If you have the company of a young child, you may want to let them lead you, as they know what to do in nature, by following their instincts.

Feeling the barkIf you want to amuse yourself, then here are some things that we at Harmony in Nature enjoy doing outside, as the cooler weather approaches. Take your time, and really notice the details with your senses. When we become completely present in the moment, rest, recovery and healing is triggered through a different branch of our autonomic nervous system operating than during our daily ‘doings’. Being outside, and especially in nature, has been shown to benefit us in all areas of wellbeing.

  • See what draws your attention when you step outside: is it the temperature, the light, colours, shapes/angles, movement? Follow one of these qualities for a few minutes, and see how you feel.
  • In a clean area in nature, appreciate the quality of the air, breathing slowly in and out through your nostrils (especially important in very cold weather, as the nose warms the air). Notice if the air seems the same temperature as it goes both in and out, or is it different?
  • Feel the air on your face, hands and skin - does it change if you turn, very slowly, in a full circle? Do you feel some breeze/warmth/cold/movement across your skin, or not?
  • What can you hear? If it’s a jarring sound, take a few slow breaths in and out, and listen even harder to find a natural sound - maybe birdsong, wind, water from a small fountain? Cup your hands round your ears and see if that makes the sound louder.
  • Smell as much as you can! As there is more moisture in the air, the smells get stronger, so make the most of this, by looking for some areas where leaves have come down. Rubbing them between your fingers increases the smell, as does ‘sniffing like a cat’, taking in several shorter sniffs before inhaling more deeply; but not so deeply that you get bits of leaf up your nostrils, though! Do deeper layers smell different?
  • Leaves are fun for all the family! You can scuff them along to make a great swishing sound, or throw them, kick them or, if you find a nice layer in a safe place, even lie down and make ‘leaf angels’ with your arms, so you don’t have to wait for snow!
  • Have you walked on grass in your bare feet? Not only is the damp grass a lovely feeling, but being in contact ‘skin to skin’ with the ground has wonderful health benefits, too. It sends to the earth all the excess positively charged ions, which we are absorbing from all our tech and electronic equipment, and sends us back the negatively charged ions, which bring us more health. Some say we need at least 10 minutes of uninterrupted contact, but others feel it is instant. Certainly, we feel often feel tingling after a while, and sometimes feet even warm up! (You can always put something like towel on the top of your feet, and that keeps them warmer, for a luxury version!)

Whatever you do outside, ensure you have fun, and rediscover the pleasures of having the curiosity of a child again.
