  • 24th June, Midsummer's Day in British Tradition & Fors Fortuna in Roman Tradition

    24th June Mid Summers DayFriday 24th June is Midsummers Day and was considered magical in Cornwall and Ireland, when there was feasting, fires, songs, and dances. Bonfires were kindled on high hills to commemorate the high point of the year.

    Traditionally, the veil is thin between the dimensions housing the living and the dead at this time, hence its setting for Shakepeare's Play a Midsummer Night's Dream.

    June 24th was designated as a feast celebration called St John's Day in the Christian Calendar, dedicated to the marytr St John The Baptist. The observance begins the night before as St John's Eve.  It's also commemorated in Freemasonry.

    However, Midsummer's Day celebrations long predates Christianity, and has existed under different names and traditions globally.

    24th June is also the Roman Festival of Fors Fortuna. Fors is an ancient Roman Goddess of prosperity, good luck, and divine blessings. Her name means "She Who Brings", from the Latin verb fero, synonymous with abundance and success.  This seems to have merged with Fortuna, probably originally a Goddess of fertility, into the Goddess called Fors Fortuna, who was acknowledged as sometimes being fickle or wanton and representing Fortune as Goddess of luck or chance. 

    She was especially worshipped by slaves and commoners, as the Goddess who could bring about rags-to-riches transformations; with at least two dedicated temples in Rome being founded by former slaves in gratitude for their changed luck. It also looks to have been the origin of the phrase Wheel of Fortune.

    By keeping traditions, communities in Ancient Britain retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

  • Birthday of Ra & Roman Games of Apollo, 13th July 2018

    Friday 13th July, according to some sources, was the Ancient Egyptian Festival to celebrate the Birthday of Ra.  Since Ra was the God of creation this could be interpreted as the day man was created!  Ra was also associated with the Sun and healing so perhaps it is no coincidence that the Roman’s celebrated Apollo on the same (Equivalent) date. 

    Friday 13th July in Roman Times was the culmination of the Games of Apollo.  As early as 212 BCE 13th July was the celebration of Apollo as the God of Healing (especially during wars) but this later extended into an 8 day festival ending on 13th July.  Apollo was associated with the Sun and his twin Diana (Goddess of Hunting) was associated with the moon.  Apollo became significant among the Romans when Augustus Caesar, as a young man, chose Apollo as his own god, and attributed his victory over Antony and Cleopatra to Apollo’s superiority over the Egyptian Deities!  Augustus is said to have described Apollo as: “Governor of Roman destiny; master of the sun; archer; augur; averter of pestilence; and giver of sound morals to the young.”

    May CF is readyMay is a month when our Pagan heritage breaks through into parochial folklore. May Day, also known as Beltane, is a Pagan Festival still celebrated in parishes across the country featuring elaborate traditions involving May Poles, floral-dressed girls bedecked with flower garlands, Morris Dancers, Green Man imagery, hobby horses etc. We usher in the promise of sunshine and summer as we welcome green shoots and abundant blossom everywhere, not least the Mayflower (Hawthorn) associated with the old adage, ne'er cast a clout till May be out (which I always assumed meant the month itself)...

    The month could be named after Maia, a Greek Goddess linked with the land, fertility and growth. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called Thrimilci, the month when cows could be milked three times a day due to constant grazing on abundant new grass.

    During May, as well as our own traditional British Festivals plus Mental Health Awareness Week (9th-16th) and we can look forward to Roman and Egyptian celebrations as well as a lunar eclipse. On the 16th we have a Flower Blood Full Moon with total lunar eclipse which is not visible in the UK or most of Europe - but we will still be affected energetically. Eclipses always bring the unseen into focus. Our Full Moon Online Guided Meditation is 7.30-9.30pm UK time on Monday 16th May.

    We have Surrey Forest Bathing events with Bluebells at Harry Edwards on Sunday 15th (full day event themed on Nature Angels) & Sunday 22nd, as well as London Forest Bathing in SW20 on Monday 9th (during Mental Health Awareness week). Our inaugural 6-week Forest Bathing Series for the local branch of the mental health charity Mind starts 11th May. And my Violet Flame of Amenti virtual study course is starting again on the 12th May.

    May Day BeltaneSunday 1st Mayis May Day and Beltane - a Celtic word meaning 'fires of Bel' (Bel was a Celtic deity). It is a fire festival that celebrates the coming of summer and the fertility of the coming year. Celtic festivals often tied in with the needs of the community. In springtime, at the beginning of the farming calendar, everybody would be hoping for a fruitful year for their fields and hence also their families. Beltane rituals would often include courting: for example, young men and women collecting blossoms in the woods and lighting fires in the evening. These rituals would often lead to matches and marriages, either immediately or in the coming summer or autumn.

    Bona Dea 1st MaySunday 1st Maywas also the annual Roman Festival of Bona Dea. In Roman mythology, Bona Dea (literally "the good goddess") was the goddess of fertility, healing, virginity, and women. She was the daughter of the god Faunus and was associated with supplying medicinal healing herbs in her temple garden. Bona Dea was traditionally invoked for freedom from slavery; many of her worshippers were freed slaves and plebeians, and several were women seeking aid in sickness or for fertility. This Festival was celebrated by women only!

    Image by Marti Dean who also designed Jack's face for the 2022 Hastings FestivalMonday 2nd May, is early May Bank Holiday in the UK (the first Monday after 1st May), with many towns and villages offering May Day celebrations.

    Jack in the Green Festival is held in Hastings, with four days of festivities around the May Day weekend. ​​​​​Since its revival in the 1980s the festival has become synonymous with the town of Hastings and is now one of its largest events. 

    Over the long weekend there is morris dancing around the town, a traditional ceilidh and a sunrise ceremony to welcome in the dawn of summer on Sunday 1 May. Bank holiday Monday is the highlight as the town turns green. A grand procession leads the giant foliage-covered Jack through the Old Town and up to the West Hill, where he is eventually 'slain' and the spirit of summer is released! Image by Marti Dean, who also designed Jack's face for this 2022 festival programmes.

    Hastings Jack in the Green is a hugely popular event so local roads and the A21 can get congested and car parking around the town is limited. 

    Veneration of the ThornWednesday 4th May, is the festival of the Veneration of the Thorn at which the Hawthorn is honoured.

    This is a festival of modern origin that may have been adapted from the night of Lunantisidhe on 16th May, honouring the fairy spirits of Hawthorns.

    Holy bushes and trees marking sacred places and wells are acknowledged and new scraps of cloth are tied to their branches. 

    Alec Bristow the Great EscapeWednesday 4th May, 3-4.15pm, Joanna's talk entitled 'The Great Escape; the Real Story' at the Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford, Surrey GU1 4LH. Cost £5. Most places are reserved for members.

    Joanna will tell the personal story of her father who grew up in Guildford before becoming a WWII Mosquito pilot and a prisoner-of-war in Stalag Luft III where the famous ‘Great Escape’ took place in March 1944.

    Joanna first saw The Great Escape film as a young child and has assembled extensive research, her father’s anecdotes and his wartime diary to give a fascinating insight into what it was really like for an RAF officer in the camp. Including: How ambitious were the preparations and plans? What actually took place on 24 March 1944 and what were the after-effects of this bold affront to the Nazi regime?

    The one hour talk will cover: details of what actually happened on the night of the Great Escape (made famous by the 1963 Hollywood Blockbuster), as well as how he survived the war, his lucky escape, and how he came to run five travel agencies in North West Surrey.

    You can book online viaGuildford Institute (event ref T278) or by phone on 01483 562142.

    AquaridsThursday 5th May (specifically Wednesday night/Thursday morning)is peak of the ETA Aquariid Meteor Shower,see rmg.org or EarthSky Website.Predominantly, this is a pre-dawn shower, that is one where the meteors may occur in the dark hour before dawn.

    The best display will rain down on the morning of the 5th May (the New Moon 30th April is close enough to help reduce light pollution), but these ETA Aquariids can appear any time between 24th April and 20th May.

    1st May Surrey daySaturday 7th May is Surrey Day here in our locality. 

    The fourth annual Surrey Day takes place on Saturday 7th May, 2022, led by Visit Surrey and partners BBC Radio Surrey, Surrey Life Magazine, Surrey Lieutenancy and Local Food Surrey.

    Details on the Visit Surrey website.

    9th May LemuriaMonday 9th Mayis the Roman Festival of Lemuria.

    This involved a ritual by the Master (or Mistress) of the House with nine black beans(!) to honour the Lemures – spirits of those who died unnatural or violent deaths.

    I wondered if it was connected to the ancient land of Lemuria,believed to have been situated in the Pacific area near Hawaii, and a possible belief by the Romans that the land may have been destroyed violently (legend says that, like Atlantis, a disaster such as volcanic eruption or flood caused its destruction).

    Mental health awareness week 2022Monday 9th - Sunday 15th May is Mental Health Awareness Week here in the UK, and the theme this year is loneliness which affects millions of people across the UK.

    Sadly, the series of lockdowns since 2020, won't have helped mental health at all, with loneliness and isolation a known cause of depression already.

    On the plus side, this last two years have put health and wellbeing in the public eye more than ever.

    Jo at CHCMonday 9th May, 11am -1.30pm, we kick off Mental Health Awareness Week with Forest Bathing+at our London location in Cannon Hill Park, SW20, £35 (+ Paypal fee = £36.75).

    Immerse yourself in the healing elements of nature and connect deeply with all your senses. We will take you on a 2½ hour journey through the beautiful landscaped park, nestled in this little known oasis of calm within Greater London. Through a selection of simple sensory activities, you will learn how to enhance your perceptions and slow down to focus on what could easily be missed. We end with a treelaxtion;  a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience, and which, despite the title forest bathing, does not involve any swimming!

    Some of the scientifically proven benefits of spending time in woodland include reduced stress levels, stronger immune system response, and a stabilised cortisol cycle.

    This session which will take place in all weathers except 25+mph winds or electrical storms. Book via our the Harmony Healing shop or our London Meetup. Email  to go on our forest bathing mailing list.

    The colour violet has an established association with spirituality. Having the highest frequency in the visible spectrum, violet is at the point of transition to the next octave of light.

    Both in Atlantis, and subsequently during the Essene era (which spanned the lifetimes of Mother Mary, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene), this powerful tool was retained under the Guardianship of Angels Melchisadec and Ariel. 

    This course features instructions on the ancient alchemical properties of the Violet Flame and how to use it in your daily life. See Violet Flame of Amenti page for further details and to book. 

    Worth 1 unit towards the RSE Level 1, available at a special package rate of £266, which includes a personal angelic attunement, worth £33, created around your date of birth.

    Immerse yourself in the healing elements of nature and connect deeply with all your senses, especially in this glorious bluebell season. Spend 3 hours in the woods mindfully connecting to your surroundings and living fully in the present moment, guided by us in simple sensory exercises and a treelaxtion. A deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience, and which, despite the title forest bathing,does not involve any swimming!

    Some of the scientifically proven benefits of spending time in woodland include reduced stress levels, stronger immune system response, and a stabilised cortisol cycle.

    Flower Blood MoonMonday 16th May is Flower Moon (and Total Lunar Eclipse) @ 05:15 UK time (Sunday night/Monday morning). Total lunar eclipses are sometimes called a Full Blood Moon Eclipsebecause of the orange-red glow the moon seems to adopt during the eclipse phase.

    Although the eclipse won't be visible in UK or much of Europe, it will still affect us energetically. It will be visble in South/West Europe, South/West Asia, Africa, Much of North America, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Antarctica. More at timeanddate.com.

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body.

    Moonwise Calendar 2022

    Celestial Forecast is compiled by Joanna Bristow-Watkins of Harmony Healing, the original is published at Joanna's Monthly Celestial Forecasts. It is created using many sources but notably the Moonwise Calendar and Lia Leendertz's 2022 Almanac. Whilst considerable effort is made to ensure accuracy, this is not an exact science and sources are sometimes contradictory!

    These monthly Celestial Forecasts (CF) are generally uploaded to the Harmony Healing website 2-3 months ahead and can be accessed via the drop-down box on the right. They are sent out to the main mailing list and CF subscribers a few days before the month starts. 

    Extracts from the Celestial Forecast are reproduced in Glyden Magick, an online magazine offered via Gylden Fellowship which is a fabulous resource for Neo-Pagans (particularly in the South of England when physical meet-ups can resume).

    To subscribe to the detailed Blog updates (headed with a title detailing the occasion/event so you can choose whether to open it or not), featuring New and Full Moon, meteor showers, eclipses and other meteorological events, interesting anniversaries, ancient festival dates plus notification of dates of numerological significance, sign up here. The nature of the Blog means that whenever there are several key dates in close succession, there will be frequent mailings. 

    If you would rather ONLY receive the monthly Celestial Forecast, select the appropriate subscription. You will receive occasional newsletters but this opts you out of the smart Blog which emails regular notifications as events occur.

  • Egyptian Festival of Nehebkau, 29th November 2017

     

    Image of Ka armsWednesday 29th November is the Egyptian celebration Nehebkau, which literally meant 'he who unites the Kas'; the Ka being the body double which we might interpret as spirit or soul.  Different texts identify the Ka as the Lower Self and the Ba as the Higher Self, whilst other specialists believe the opposite. Either way, Nehebkau effectively means the unity of the Hight and Lower Self, so essentially spiritual enlightenment.

    Nehebkau was depicted in the form of a snake (typically with two heads - able to attack and defend at the same time - see image on the left) or as conjoined arms, legs and occasionally wings! 

    He was yet another Deity associated with protection and magic, and was said to guard the Dwat (Void) or the Underworld.

     

  • Egyptian Festival of Pelusia, 20th March 2017

    Tuesday 20th March is the Egyptian Festival of Pelusia, with the Egyptian Goddess Isis (Aset) working her spring magic to ensure the flooding of the Nile later in the year, thereby guaranteeing a fruitful harvest.

  • Egyptian Festival of Pelusia, Tuesday 20th March 2018

    Tuesday 20th March is the Egyptian Festival of Pelusia, with the Egyptian Goddess Isis (Aset) working her spring magic to ensure the flooding of the Nile later in the year, thereby guaranteeing a fruitful harvest. See Joanna's live Facebook Pelusia/Facebook video.

    We do have Egyptian Deity Posters available for sale from the Harmony Shop.

    Accordng to findwords.info, in the Roman Empire, the Pelusia was a religious festival held on the 20th March to honour Isis (known as Aset to the indigenous Egyptians) and her child Harpocrates (known to the Egyptians as Heru and later called Horus by the Greeks). It would have coincided with the second day of the Quinquatria, the five-day festival dedicated to Minerva(see Blog entry for 19th March). It's not known when the tradition started because the holiday was not featured in the Roman calendar by 100 AD, but had been added by the reign of Marcus Aurelius (161–180 AD). 

    In the 6th Century AD, John Lydus, the Byzantine scholar, describes the festival as commemorating the mud (we would now know as the alluvial plain) caused from the flooding of the Nile. This ends hunger and drought and generates fertility.  It was thought to be represented by the birth of Harpocrates, who in Roman art is depicted emerging from mud bearing a Cornucopia (rather like the image of Lar featured on the 22nd February Blog entry).

    During the Pelusia, participants were sprinkled with water to obtain immunity from offenses to the gods (impunitas periurorum) and rebirth (regeneratio). The sprinkling is thought to recreate the symbolic effect of the flooding, indicating that  water from the Nile itself may have been used as a form of holy water as it was in other Isis ceremonies brought to Rome. Regeneratio was also used in connection with Baptism in Christian discourse of the time. 

    In Egypt, the Pelusia on 20th March, marked the beginning of the sailing season. The day was under the protection of Isis and Serapis (the Graeco-Egyptian version of Osirus combined with Apis, introduced by the Ptolemies in the 1st Century BC).

  • Friday 14th January, Hindu Celebration of Makara Samkranti

    makar 1Friday 14th January is the Hindu Celebration of Makara Samkranti, which is the Winter Festival of the reborn sun.  It is traditional to wear yellow clothes and eat yellow food.

    Bathing in sacred waters, lighting bonfires, kite flying, dancing and offering prayers are also traditional activities over this festival, with rural children going from house to house, singing and asking for treats. It is also a good day to donate to charity.

    Makara is a mythological sea-creature from Hindu cultur and is equivalent to the Zodiac sign of Capricorn in Hindu astrology. Saṃkrānti is the moment when the Sun enters a zodiacal constellation (rāśi).

    Most ancient Hindu festivals are observed according to lunar cycles, whereas Makar Sankranti is one of the few set by the solar cycle.This means it falls annually on the same Gregorian calendar date (14th January), except on occasional years when the date shifts by a single day, because of the complexity of earth-sun relative movement.

    In some regions, traditions include taking a ceremonial dip in holy rivers, which is believed to expunge all past sins. 

    Makar Sankranti is marked, every 12 years, by a massive pilgrimage, with up to 100 million people flocking to Allahabad, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, for the event.

    Allahabad sits at the point where the Ganges, the Yamuna, and the Saraswati rivers merge making it a focal point for the festivities.

    Aligning ourselves with community celebrations is very therapeutic and is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

    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) Level 1 -our next interactive training course series will start in 2022

    O Isis, the Great, God's mother, Lady of Philae,
    God's Wife, God's Adorer, and God's Hand,
    God's mother and Great Royal Spouse,
    Adornment and Lady of the Ornaments of the Palace.

    Lady and desire of the Green Fields,
    Nursling who fills the palace with her beauty,
    Fragrance of the palace, mistress of joy,
    Who completes her course in the Divine Place.

    Rain-cloud that makes green the fields when it descends,
    Maiden, sweet of love, Lady of Upper and Lower Egypt,
    Who issues orders among the divine Ennead,
    According to whose command one rules.

    Princess, great of praise, lady of charm,
    Whose face enjoys the trickling of fresh myrrh.

  • Friday 17th December, Roman Festival of Saturnalia

    17 Dec SaturnaliaFriday 17th December is the Roman Festival of Saturnalia. This was the popular banquet commemorating the dedication of the temple of the god Saturn. It was marked by tomfoolery and reversal of social roles, in which slaves and masters ostensibly switched places. 

    The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn, in the Roman Forum, and a public feast, continual partying with private gift-giving, gambling and a celebratory atmosphere that reversed the usual Roman social norms with masters provided table service for their slaves. The poet Catullus referred to it as "the best of days."

    Saturn was an agricultural deity who, in Roman Mythology, was associated with the Golden Age, when humans enjoyed the spontaneous bounty of the earth without labour in a state of innocence.

    Celebrating traditional festivals like Saturnalia, helped Roman communities come together and bring balance and harmony into people's lives.

    Skywatching and aligning ourselves with the 'heavenly bodies' is great for for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives. Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is particulary therapeutic, hence being aware of the New moon (good for starting new projects) and Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives. 

    If you feel connected to the lunar cycle, note that our next Full Moon  Unity Consciousnesss Guided Meditation (£20), 7.30-9.30pm (GMT) is tomorrow night, Saturday 18th December, when you will be guided though a mindful chakra healing programme, using colours and crystal energy. You will then be connected above (to the Sky) and below (to the Earth) to be part of the Harmony Healing Lightworker collective and start making a difference by sending regular global healing.

    We are running a New Year New Vision mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2022. This includes distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 2nd January and 1st February plus Full Moon on 17th January), plus a ritual with the elements on the Imbolc ceremony (1st February) and ending on the Chinese New Year of the Tiger (1st February). Costing £155, more at the Harmony Website.

  • Friday 19th March, Roman Festival of Quinquatrus & Women's Moon Lodge

    Quinquatrus 19th MarchFriday 19th March is the Roman Festival of Quinquatrus (also known as Quinquatria), the name being derived from it happening the 5th day after the Ides of March. 

    This was a Festival dedicated to Minerva when women were accustomed to consult fortune-tellers and diviners.

    Both Festus and Varro indicate that the Quinquatrus was only celebrated for one day and hence ancient Roman religious calendars assign only one day to the festival.

    Ovid, however, states that it was a five day celebration, hence the name. Apparently, on the first day no blood was shed, but on the last four there were gladiator contests.

    At one time, celebrations took place 19th - 23rd of March, orginally an Etruscan festival to celebrate spring, rites of women, rebirthing and the Spring Equinox.

    I can't help wondering if it was a development from the Egyptian Pelusia Festival, see 20th March entry.

    By keeping traditions, communities retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. 

    Moon Lodge eventFriday 19th March,as well as being Quinquatrus, is also is the Moon Lodge Healing Women's Circle, 7-8.30pm GMT, £11 + Eventbrite fee = £11.27. This is a virtual event on Zoom.

    Run by Harmony Healing collaborator Sarah Jane Dennis, this is a sacred circle for women in the community to come together as we once did, to connect in a safe and loving space to the energies of the moon and our own cycles.

    Talk, support, heal, celebrate, and hold each other. Book at Eventbrite. Contact Sarah-Jane via her website at crystalhealingbysarahjane.co.uk or email .

    Aligning ourselves with other members of the community through mutual celebration and support is very therapeutic and is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. We have had two new interactive mentoring courses series start this month with Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness on Tuesday evenings starting 11th March and Essene Angelology on Thursday evenings from 16th March. Late starts can be accommodated. These modules are £66 each.

    If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the nextvirtual healing circle later this month  on  Sunday 28th March, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £20 (+ £2 Paypal fee). During this session, 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.

    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 voucherfor a birthday or other celebratory occasion? 

    A number of virtual courses are now ready, details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. We don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.

    Joanna offers distant intuitive readings (past life and/or aura readings) and distant 1-2-1 healings and virtual healing circles. We also have meditations available.

  • Friday 1st July, Zoroastrian Rain Festival of Tir Jashan and Canada Day

    1 July Tir JishanFriday 1st July, in Fasli tradition, is the Zoroastrian Rain Festival of Tir Jashan, dedicated to the star deities of Tir and Teshar. 

    Give bracelets made of the seven colours of the rainbow (usually silks).  At the end of the festival go to a high place and throw them into the wind (hoping they are biodegradable).  It's also traditional to dance, make merry and splash each other with water.

    This festival is devoted to the divinity Tir and is associated with the dog-star Sirius and the coming of the rains in Iran and the fertility they bring.

    As the Festival is actually on the 13th of Tir, some Zorastrian traditions convert this to 4th July.

    Interestingly, yesterday, here in the UK, it was the end of Pride month which is traditionally celebrated with any rainbow adornments. 

    1st July Canada day1st July is also Canada Day; the national day of Canada.

    This is a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of Canadian confederation, which took place with the passing of the Constitution Act on 1st July 1867, where the new name Canada recognised the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick being united into a single Dominion within the British Empire. 

    By keeping traditions and celebrating national festivals, communities retain a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. 

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we hold monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations.During this session, 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.

  • Friday 1st November, Samonios, All Saints Day & World Vegan Day

    Pagan image of SamoniosFriday 1st November starts the first month of the Celtic Year, called Samonios - 'Seed Fall'; mirroring the death/rebirth cycle of Asar (Osiris).

    It is thought that two Roman festivals became incorporated with Samhain - 'Feralia', when the Romans commemorated the passing of the dead, and 'Pomona', when the Roman goddess of fruit and trees was honoured. The Halloween tradition of bobbing for apples is thought to derive from the ancient links with the Roman fruit goddess, Pomona, and a Druidical rite associated with water. 

    This is also All Saints Day in the Christian calendar.

    The Samonios image above and text below, by Helen Benigni, are kindly taken with permission from the angelfire.com website.

    The month of SAMONIOS is a month of miraculous births beginning with the appearance of the twin stars of Castor and Pollux on the Eastern Horizon. These miraculously born twins, from an egg containing both mortal and immortal potential, bridge the gap between this world and the Otherworld with their appearance on the first quarter moon heralding the Holy Nights of Winter Solstice. Further into the month shortly after the third quarter of the moon, a trio of stars including Rigel, Betelguese and Castor march across the sky to illiminate this Oenach of light and birth.

    Literally translated as "seed fall," SAMONIOS is the month when the light of the Dagda, the seed of his loins, penetrates the womb of the earth and creates life. This light is symbolized by the sunrise of the Winter Solstice penetrating the inner chambers of the sacred mounds of the Neolithic peoples. At Newgrange, the sacred mound of the Bru na Boinne, the light of the Winter Solstice shines through a roof-box of white quartz for seventeen minutes to dramatically illuminate the cruciform chamber of the passage tomb. Here, the stone-carved geometric motifs common to trance states of shamanic ecstasy amplify the light in order that the observer may experience the light of life bestowed by the solar deity.

    This solar alignment initiates the light half of the year. Mistletoe is hung as a symbol of the immortal love that the good father, Dagda brought to Boand, the goddess of the Bru na Boinne. Oengus, the son of their union and the Lord of the Sid mound, guards the entrance to the Otherworld and immortal life. 

    Friday 1st November is also World Vegan Day.  In 1994, the event was established by Louise Wallis, then Chair of The Vegan Society, UK, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of coining the terms "vegan" and "veganism" and the founding of the organisation. November is nominated as World Vegan Month.

  • Friday 24th June, 666 numerology, Midsummer's Day in British Tradition & Fors Fortuna in Roman Tradition

    666 numerology 26th JuneFriday 24th June is secondary 666 in numerology.  2022 is a '6' year in numerology (2+0+2+2 = 6), June is the 6th month and with the 6th June being the 6th day of the month, it was a primary 666 as digits for all aspects of the month each add up to 6.

    Wednesday 15th and Friday 24th June (today) carry secondary 666 energy as the digits of those dates also add up to 6. Subscribers to the Harmony Healing e-Newsletters will receive reminders on the day. 

    See earlier Blog entry for 6th June for more on the numerology of 6 and the full Harmony Healing Blog entry for 6th June for further details on the meaning of triple numbers in numerology and the interpretation of 666 specifically.

    Numerology is seen by some as a way of bringing balance, harmony and meaning into your life. Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing. 

    24th June Mid Summers DayFriday 24th June is Midsummers Day and was considered magical in Cornwall and Ireland, when there was feasting, fires, songs, and dances. Bonfires were kindled on high hills to commemorate the high point of the year.

    Traditionally, the veil is thin between the dimensions housing the living and the dead at this time, hence its setting for Shakepeare's Play a Midsummer Night's Dream.

    June 24th was designated as a feast celebration called St John's Day in the Christian Calendar, dedicated to the marytr St John The Baptist. The observance begins the night before as St John's Eve.  It's also commemorated in Freemasonry.

    However, Midsummer's Day celebrations long predates Christianity, and has existed under different names and traditions globally.

    24th June is also the Roman Festival of Fors Fortuna. Fors is an ancient Roman Goddess of prosperity, good luck, and divine blessings. Her name means "She Who Brings", from the Latin verb fero, synonymous with abundance and success.  This seems to have merged with Fortuna, probably originally a Goddess of fertility, into the Goddess called Fors Fortuna, who was acknowledged as sometimes being fickle or wanton and representing Fortune as Goddess of luck or chance. 

    She was especially worshipped by slaves and commoners, as the Goddess who could bring about rags-to-riches transformations; with at least two dedicated temples in Rome being founded by former slaves in gratitude for their changed luck. It also looks to have been the origin of the phrase Wheel of Fortune.

    By keeping traditions, communities in Ancient Britain retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

  • Friday 3rd December, Roman Festival of Bona Dea

    Roman Goddess CeresFriday 3rd December is the Roman Festival of Bona Dea, this being a smaller festival that the one celebrated on 1st May but similarly for women only. In Roman mythology, Bona Dea (literally "the good goddess") was the goddess of fertility, healing, virginity, and women. Some sources say it's the 4th December.

    She was the daughter of the god Faunus and was associated with supplying medicinal healing herbs in her temple garden. Bona Dea was also invoked for freedom from slavery; many of her worshippers were freed slaves and plebeians, and many were women seeking aid in sickness or for fertility.  Her oracles were revealed only to females.

    Men were not just prohibited from Her secret festival, they not even allowed to know Her name, let alone utter it. There were other restrictions during the worship of Bona Dea: drinking either wine or myrtle was taboo and could not be mentioned by name throughout Her secret festival, probably because they were both considered very powerful due to their sacred association with Her. Bona Dea may have been aspect of Ceres, another Roman Goddess illustrated here. 

    Celebrating traditional festivals like Bona Dea, helped Roman communities come together and bring balance and harmony into people's lives.

    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) Level 1 -our next interactive training course series started 1st December, for three consecutive Wednesdays withMindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness7.15-9.30pm UK time (GMT).
