  • Saturday 30th March -  a gentle reminder that this is the final 3-3-3 numerology for this month, for which I've chosen the theme Awaken Your Avatar; which is basically a suggestion that we consolidate our internal conflict (balance our masculine/feminine, home/work-life, even positive/negative personality traits) and focus on connecting with our inner knowing (Higher Self) which we all hold within.  This means opening the heart and working toward integrating the Higher Self (spiritual aspects) and Lower Self (basic functional needs) to create an enlightened being (Avatar). Below is a recap of the 3-3-3 numerology and theme for this third month.

    2019 is a '3' year in numerology (2+0+1+9 = 12, then 1+2 =3), March is the third month and so there are four dates this month where the digits add up to three (3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th) giving us four separate examples of 3:3:3 numerology, which can be interpreted as meaning 'awaken your avatar' as well as 'creating heaven on earth'. The same 3:3:3 numerology will apply on 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th December 2019. These dates will all offer amplified energies for manifesting our hopes and dreams.  Full details on the numerology are detailed in the separate section below. 

    myAvatar2010 was the last '3 year'. That was the year when I saw the film Avatar and was struck by some very deep resonances within the storyline (though I personally think the film would have been improved by at least 30-45 mins less battle combat scenes). The blue skin of the Na'vi is interesting (Ptah, the Egyptian Deity, is depicted with blue skin and it is said that the beings from Sirius have blue skin), but I particularly like the way the Na'vi understood the inter-relationship between species and the need to honour all life forms, plus their appreciation of the life force infrastructure network operating via trees!  This is something that my sister (Angela McGerr) and I work with (via the Sacred Eden Tree, original archetypal tree from the Garden of Eden), through which much global and planetary healing can be disseminated.  Most people would not understand this concept at all, so in a way, films like Avatar sew the seeds for this being not such a challenging idea!  Of course Avatar, though it has come to mean in techno speak representation of self as a chosen archetype (or even via a Caricature - see mine left courtesy of avatar maker), as defined by is original Sanskrit meaning, was the representation/incarnation of a Deity via a human or animal body, so in the film both definitions are combined with the idea of an idealised/perfected template of self.

    By Awakening our Avatar, we can become masters of our destiny.  Just imagine what we can do by tuning in 'en masse' at 3.33 (am or pm would work, though I fancy pm will be more popular!) on any of these 3:3:3 portals. I will be undertaking a meditation between 3 - 3.33, hopefully on all of these dates, but certainly on the 3rd and 30th, please tune-in if you are available.  Close your eyes at a convenient time, which could be 3pm in your local time or the equivalent of 3pm GMT (when we will be meditating), or, if this is not possible, then invoke Eth, the angelic Guardian of time, to bend time so that you can join us etherically.  Send your positive intentions for awakening your Avatar and also for seeing the planet healed, to create for ourselves the next golden age.  

    See this Lost Generation You Tube video link for a thought-provoking (1 minute 50 seconds) presentation on the need for global responsibility.  This was also, synchronistically, first uploaded in 2010.

  • Tuesday 3rd December - is the first 3:3:3 numerology for this month, for which I've chosen the theme Awaken Your Avatar; which is basically a suggestion that we consolidate our internal conflict (balance our masculine/feminine, home/work-life, even positive/negative personality traits) and focus on connecting with our inner knowing (Higher Self) which we all hold within. This means opening the heart and working toward integrating the Higher Self (spiritual aspects) and Lower Self (basic functional needs) to create an enlightened being (Avatar).  I have an online meditation, aimed at identifying and overcoming what is holding you back from achieving your full potential, you can join on 12th December (which is a 12:12:12 as well as another 3:3:3) - see below for details.

    Below is a recap of the 3:3:3 numerology and theme for this month.

    2019 is a '3' year in numerology (2+0+1+9 = 12, then 1+2 =3), March was the third month and so there were four dates back in March where the digits added up to three (3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th) giving us four separate examples of 3:3:3 numerology, which can be interpreted as meaning 'Awaken your Avatar' as well as 'creating heaven on earth'. Because December is the 12th month, the digits again reduce to '3' when added together, so the same 3:3:3 numerology applies on 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th December 2019. These dates will all offer amplified energies for manifesting our hopes and dreams.  Full details on the numerology are detailed in the separate section below. 

    Most healers are aware of the Sacred and Ancient Law of Three, examples being:

    • The Trinity of Father, Son and Spirit or Isis (Aset), Osiris (Ausar), Horus (Heru);
    • The composition of matter: Carbon, Oxygen, Hydrogen;
    • The components of man: Body, Essence, Personality or Mind, Body, Spirit.

    The number three is also mentioned in the Emerald Tablets of Thoth (Tehuti) as follows:

    • Three is the Mystery come from the Great One: One God, One Truth, One Point of Freedom
    • Three are the Paths of the Soul: Man, Liberty, Light.
    • Three are the Qualities of God in his Light home: Infinite Power, Infinite Wisdom, Infinite Love.

    As this 3:3:3 numerology gives us 3 x 3s, this amplifies the sacred spritual energy exponentially.

    myAvatar2010 was the last '3 year'. That was the year when I saw the film Avatar and was struck by some very deep resonances within the storyline (though I personally think the film would have been improved by at least 30 mins less battle combat scenes). The blue skin of the Na'vi is interesting (Ptah, the Egyptian Deity, is depicted with blue skin and it is said that the beings from Sirius have blue skin), but I particularly like the way the Na'vi understood the inter-relationship between species and the need to honour all life forms, plus their appreciation of the life force infrastructure network operating via trees!  This is something that my sister (angel author Angela McGerr) and I work with (via the Sacred Eden Tree, original archetypal tree from the Garden of Eden), through which much global and planetary healing can be disseminated. Most people would not understand this concept at all, so in a way, films like Avatar sew the seeds for this being not such a challenging idea!  Of course Avatar, though it has come to mean in techno speak representation of self as a chosen archetype (or even via a Caricature - see mine above left courtesy of avatar maker), as defined by is original Sanskrit meaning, was the representation/incarnation of a Deity via a human or animal body, so in the film both definitions are combined with the idea of an idealised/perfected template of self.

    If you would like to join in on a 3:3:3 celebration, I am running a 3:3:3 virtual 'Awaken Your Avatar' guided meditation via Zoom on 12th December, which is another 3-3-3 numerology. the evnt will start at 3pm UK time (GMT/UT) for 33 minutes, the cost is £13.33. See Awaken Your Avatar on Harmony Healing website for details and to book. The Awaken Your Avatar meditation involves working with the Violet flame of transmutation to identify and overcome what is holding you back from achieving your full potential.

    Oak tree lying in state HC 2009Interestingly, in 2009, my other sister (garden designer and counsellor, Fiona  Stephenson), was awarded a Gold Medal for her RHS Hampton Court Show Garden entitled Oak Tree Lying in State (image right) which was all about showing reverence for nature. 

    Featured in the Telegraph at the time, the newpaper article singled out the best 'sustainable' garden as follows "the intriguing and original Oak Tree: Lying in State by Fiona Stephenson, which has as its focus a century-old oak tree trunk lying on its side on top of a floral red carpet, surrounded by oak saplings". 

    This year I have been training as a Forest Bathing+ Guide. Part of the training has involved studying the plethora of evidence that being in nature, particularly in ancient woodland, is undeniably beneficial for our wellbeing. 

    An earlier Show Garden of Fiona's, Growing Together in 2007, was a collaboration with the RHS (Royal Horticultual Society) and pyschologists from the University of Essex. The parties involved studied the wellbeing impact of spending just three minutes in the specially designed healing garden and the results were incredible. Fiona and I are planning a new initiative to explore wellbeing through nature therapy; exploring garden settings as well as woodlands.

    See this Lost Generation You Tube video link for a thought-provoking (1 minute 50 seconds) presentation on the need for global responsibility.  This was also, synchronistically, first uploaded in 2010.

    On Tuesday 3rd December, 7.30 - 10pm there will be a healing share at Harmony Healing, see my Surrey meet-up for details.

    If you can't join us on the 3rd December but would like to join in on a 3:3:3 celebration, I am running a 3:3:3 virtual 'Awaken Your Avatar' meditation via Zoom on 12th December, which is another 3:3:3 numerology, at 3pm UK time (GMT/UT) for 33 minutes, the cost is £13.33.

  • eta aquarid shower

    Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May is the ETA Aquariid Meteor Shower. Predominantly, this is a pre-dawn shower, which is one where the meteors may occur in the dark hour before dawn. Image of the radiant point is taken from the EarthSky Website.

    The new Moon close to midnight on Saturday 4th May guarantees a darker sky. The best display will rain down on the mornings of the 5th (especially favourable because of the New Moon) and 6th May - just before dawn - but it's worth looking out for them on the morning of the 7th as well.

    Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.

    Zikiel croppedYou can invoke the Angel Zikiel (Angel Guardian of Meteors and Asteroids) to help bring in new ideas. The image of Zikiel (left) is by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerr's Heart & Soul Angel Cards.

    Zikiel guides the comets and meteorites in their eternal passage through space, tracking man's galactic origins. Zikiel therefore offers you a visionary flash of inspiration from the Sky.

    You can invoke Zikiel by calling his name three times (pronunciation = Zick ee el) and adding 'I call upon you to be with me now, 'in love & light, in love & light, in love and light'. 

    If you have a clear quartz (or better still moldavite if you have any), you can programme it with Zikiel's name and keep it with you to help capture any inspiration thoughts channelled from the heavens tonight and also to help your heart to make the right choices.  

    This ritual is taken from Angela McGerr's An Angel For Every Day - now out of print and in very short supply.  

    However, we do still have some of Angela's out of print titles (generally also personally signed by her) and I do have limited 'pre-loved' copies of some titles available via Harmony Healing Shop.

    Sunday 5th May, in 2019, is also the start of Ramadan, which begins at midnight. Ramadan is the Islamic remembrance of the reception of the divine revelation by Muhammad as recorded in the Qur'an. Complete fasting is observed from sunrise to sunset for 30 days, until Tuesday 4th June.

    Tuesday 3rd December is the first 3-3-3 numerology for this month, for which I've chosen the theme Awaken Your Avatar; which is basically a suggestion that we consolidate our internal conflict. This involves balancing our masculine/feminine, home/work-life, even positive/negative personality traits, and focussing on connecting with our inner knowing (Higher Self) which we all hold within. This also means opening the heart and working toward integrating the Higher Self (spiritual aspects) and Lower Self (basic functional needs) to create an enlightened being (Avatar). Below is a recap of the 3-3-3 numerology and theme for this month.

    2019 is a '3' year in numerology (2+0+1+9 = 12, then 1+2 =3), March was the third month and so there were four dates back in March where the digits added up to three (3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th) giving us four separate examples of 3:3:3 numerology.  December is the 12th month, where the digits again add up to 3, so 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th December once again provide four individual examples of 3:3:3 numerology, which can be interpreted as meaning 'Awaken your Avatar' as well as 'creating heaven on earth'. These dates will all offer amplified energies for manifesting our hopes and dreams.  

    Tuesday 3rd December is Joanna's Surrey Healing share, in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. 7.30-10 pm (folks can leave anytime after 9.30). Cost is £10 in advance, £15 on the door. The 3:3:3 numerology made it a natural choice for a healing share.

    Wednesday 4th December, 6.30-8.30pm, Healing Share, Planetary Healing & Christmas Networking, We Work, Room 1E,15 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 3AR

    Wednesday 4th 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. 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 fer

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

    It's a good time to instigate an oil pulling regime until the New Moon.

    Thursday 12th December, as well as being the Full Moon, is also the second 3-3-3 numerology for this month, for which I've chosen the theme Awaken Your Avatar ; which is basically a suggestion that we consolidate our internal conflict. This involves balancing our masculine/feminine, home/work-life, even positive/negative personality traits, and focussing on connecting with our inner knowing (Higher Self) which we all hold within. This also means opening the heart and working toward integrating the Higher Self (spiritual aspects) and Lower Self (basic functional needs) to create an enlightened being (Avatar).

    2019 is a '3' year in numerology (2+0+1+9 = 12, then 1+2 =3), December is the 12th month, where the digits add up to 3 (as they did in March being the third month).  Hence the 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th December provide four individual examples of 3:3:3 numerology, which can be interpreted as meaning 'Awaken your Avatar' as well as 'creating heaven on earth'. These dates will all offer amplified energies for manifesting our hopes and dreams.  

    Thursday 12th December, at 3.33pm (UK time is GMT/UT) for 33 minuites, is my Awaken Your Avatar online programme via Zoom. Cost to participate is £13.33 per person. See Awaken Your Avatar on Harmony Healing website for details and to book.  The Awaken Your Avatar meditation involves working with the Violet flame of transmutation to identify and overcome what is holding you back from achieving your full potential.

    Geminid image from Earthsky website

    Friday 13th - Saturday 14th December is the peak of the Geminid Meteor Shower. The Geminids are considered by many to be the best annual meteor shower and are known for producing multicoloured meteors 65% being white, 26% yellow, and the remaining 9% blue, red and green. Rates typically peak at 100-120/hour; this high activity lasts for several hours. It is certainly possible to see 80-100 Geminids in a single hour, but only from a dark site! The Geminid Meteor Shower is expected to peak in activity on the night of December 13th-14th, although some meteors should be visible from December 7th – 21st. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Gemini. Best viewing is usually to the east after midnight. The Full Moon on the 12th December will, however, hamper viewing due to light pollution. Go to Earthsky Website for further information. 

    Saturnalia statue by Ernesto Biondi

    Tuesday 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 image showing the Statue of Saturnalia by Ernesto Biondi, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is taken from Wikipedia as are the aditional details below.

    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.

    Thursday 17th December is the Harmony Healing Past Lives Workshop with Past Life mini-readings, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

    Wednesday 18th & Thursday 19th December (two consecutive days, 10-15am - 7.15pm) is the Harmony Healing Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing 2-day Introductory course (£200), in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. 

    Thursday 19th December,  according to Simone Matthews at UniversalLifeTools, this year, as every year, we have an interesting galactic alignment this month. This year it takes place between the last week of November (around the New Moon on 27th November) and the 26th December (Christmas New Moon in UK at  05.15 with Annular Solar Eclipse in Capricorn). On 19th December (@ 08.35 UK time = GMT/UT), the Earth, Sun and Galactic Centre (in Sagittarius) were aligned along the same plane within our Milky Way.  We also have what Simone refers to as a Galactic Evolutionary Triangle - a Tetrahedron formed by connecting the Earth, Sirius, Alcyone with our Galactic Centre.  

    Simone recommends that during this time we can energetically connect wth the structure of the water within us and set the intention for it to become liquid cystalline. This is said to activate our DNA and attune us to our genetic potential and achieve the best template for ourselves to help us towards our evolutionary and life purpose. Her theme for this year is Dare to DreamMore details on the Galactic Alignment on Simone's website.

    Saturday 21st December is the third 3-3-3 numerology for this month, for which I've chosen the theme Awaken Your Avatar; which is basically a suggestion that we consolidate our internal conflict. This involves balancing our masculine/feminine, home/work-life, even positive/negative personality traits, and focussing on connecting with our inner knowing (Higher Self) which we all hold within. This also means opening the heart and working toward integrating the Higher Self (spiritual aspects) and Lower Self (basic functional needs) to create an enlightened being (Avatar).

These dates will all offer amplified energies for manifesting our hopes and dreams.

    pagan wheelSunday 22nd December is the Pagan Solstice @ 04.20 (Saturday night/Sunday morning). It's the Winter Solstice here in the UK - the shortest day of the year with just 7 hours and 49 minutes daylight. The solstice itself is the moment the sun is shining farthest to the south, directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, so the time varies every year, between December 20th and 23rd.

    The solstice has been celebrated as a major Pagan festival, with rituals of rebirth, for thousands of years. Revellers gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise on the shortest day. Then, in the Northern Hemisphere, our days will gradually get longer until the summer solstice on Saturday 20th June 2020.

    Many of the traditions now associated with Christmas had their roots in Pagan Winter Solstice celebrations; including Yule logs, mistletoe and Christmas trees. The Druids  - an ancient Celtic order of priests, teachers, diviners and magicians who gleaned knowledge and enlightenment from sacred landscapes and ancient trees such as ‘Tutorial Oaks’ - used evergreen trees, holly and mistletoe to represent everlasting life. Druids would consider the cutting of trees as an offence against nature, but would decorate them with colourful rags tied on the branches. 

    Sunday 22nd December, 3-4.30 pm, Winter Sound Bath (Sound Journey for your Soul with Susan Lorraine), £20 pp, held at 1st Weybridge Scout Hut, Springfield Lane, Weybridge. See www.sacredsound777.com (not listed as a secure site) or contact Susan on 07709 850 543for details.

    Wednesday 25th December is the Christian Festival of Christmas, commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ.

    This is also the Fasli Zoroastrian Calendar is Zartosht-no Diso, commemorating the anniversary of the death of the prophet Zarathustra. 

    Moon Scarletts shot squareThursday 26th December@ 05.15 (Wednesday night, Thursday morning) is the Solstice New Moon and annular solar eclipse. An annular eclipse of the sun is where the edges of the sun still remains visible as a bright ring around the moon. A solar eclipse happens whenever the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, hence partly or totally obscuring the Sun for anyone viewing from Earth. This eclipse will not be visible in London but will affect all of us energetically.  More about this eclipse at timeanddate.com.

    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 You Tube Page.

    The New Moon is great time to create Vision Boards, how about creating one for 2020.

    Thursday 26th December is St Stephen’s Day in the Christian Calendar, also known as Boxing Day.

    Monday 30th December is the final 3-3-3 numerology for this month, for which I've chosen the theme Awaken Your Avatar; ; which is basically a suggestion that we consolidate our internal conflict. This involves balancing our masculine/feminine, home/work-life, even positive/negative personality traits, and focussing on connecting with our inner knowing (Higher Self) which we all hold within. This also means opening the heart and working toward integrating the Higher Self (spiritual aspects) and Lower Self (basic functional needs) to create an enlightened being (Avatar). Below is a recap of the 3-3-3 numerology and theme for this month.

    2019 is a '3' year in numerology (2+0+1+9 = 12, then 1+2 =3), December is the 12th month, where the digits add up to 3 (as they did in March being the third month).  Hence the 3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th December provide four individual examples of 3:3:3 numerology, which can be interpreted as meaning 'Awaken your Avatar' as well as 'creating heaven on earth'. These dates will all offer amplified energies for manifesting our hopes and dreams.

    Tuesday 31st December is New Year's Eve and Hogmanay in Scottish tradition. Many Scots had to work over Christmas because celebrations were virtually banned in Scotland for around 400 years, from the end of the 17th century to the 1950s.  The Protestant Reformation led to the Presbyterian outlook, branding Christmas as a Popish or Catholic feast which was therefore prohibited.  As a result, their winter solstice celebrations took place at New Year when family and friends gathered for a party and exchange presents, especially for the children, which came to be called Hogmanay. Historians believe that the Vikings who, coming from even further north than the UK, paid strong attention to the passing of the shortest day and hence may have initiated the post-Solstice celebrations.

    There is no definitive view on the origins of the word Hogmanay. Many Scottish words have derived from Flemish, so one popular view is that Hogmanay came from hoog min dag which means great love day, whereas the Scandinavian word Hoggo-nott described the feast preceding Yule (itself a Scandinavian word commonly used in Shetland where the Scandinavian influence was strongest).

    Alternatively, Hogmanay could source from the Anglo-Saxon, Haleg monath, Holy Month, or the Gaelic for new morning, oge maidne. Phonetically, a good candidate night be the similar sounding French expression Homme est né which means Man is born. Also, in France the last day of the year when gifts were exchanged was aguillaneuf, though specifically in Normandy presents given at the year-end were hoguignetes.

    In Scotland a similar practice to that in Normandy was noted, rather disapprovingly, by the Church.

    "It is ordinary among some Plebians in the South of Scotland, to go about from door to door upon New Year`s Eve, crying Hagmane." Scotch Presbyterian Eloquence, 1693.

    Common Scottish practices on 31st December, before midnight, involve a thorough cleaning of the house (including taking out the ashes from the coal fire) plus the superstition to clear all your debts. Immediately after midnight, the long-held tradition to sing Robert Burns's For Auld Lang Syne has now evolved into a popular international custom.

    Many areas of Scotland often developed their own local Hogmanay rituals such as the fireball swinging rituals in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, in northeast Scotland. Chicken wire structures - filled with old newspaper, sticks, rags, and other dry flammable material  - are attached to lengths of wire, chain or non-flammable rope. When the Old Town House bell marks the New Year, the balls are set alight and the celebrants set off along a heritage route, swinging the burning balls around their heads as they go. At the end of the ceremony, any fireballs that are still burning are cast into the harbour.

    Wednesday 1st Januaryis New Year’s Day and is a Bank Holiday in the UK and time for New Year’s Resolutions!

    Wednesday 1st – Sunday 5th January (peaking on the 3rd, 4th January) is the Quadrantids Meteor Shower; visible from 1st – 5th January after midnight and peaking in the early hours of the 4th.  Typically, 40 or so bright, blue and fast (25.5 miles per second) meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, some blazing more than halfway across the sky. A small percentage of them leave persistent dust trains. This shower usually has a very sharp peak, usually lasting only about an hour. 

    The particles that cause the Quadrantid meteor show originate from the asteroid 2003 EH1 an asteroid that is probably a piece broken off from an obsolete comet. Since the orbit of 2003 EH1 is highly inclined to the orbit of the Earth, the Earth passes through it very quickly. Thus, the Quadrantid meteor shower is an extremely short one, lasting only a few hours.  With the recent New Moon on Thursday 26th December, there should't be too much light pollution.  See earthsky.orgfor more details.

    shutterstock 114601966 Pagan wheelSaturday 1st February & Sunday 2nd February is the Pagan Imbolc Ceremony, which is one of the four Great Celtic Festivals, and which is a Wiccan and Druid Festival of Fertility and Growing Light. Imbolc (pronounced EE-molk) is the old Celtic word, the celebration is also known as Candlemas.

    It is sacred to the Goddess Brigit or Bridie, the power of the new moon, the Spring of the year, the flowing sea, corn dollies and the Great Moon Mother - Patroness of Poetry Making and Healing. Brigid is a triple Goddess, so she can be honoured in all her aspects, she is associated with fire, fertility, midwifery and the young. 

    The Imbolc Festival marks the passing of Winter and the first signs of Spring, with the emergence of new leaves and early flowers such as the snowdrop and crocus, as well as being the transition point of the threefold Goddess energies from those of the Crone to the Maiden. 

    Imbolc is a Fire Festival and it is traditional, at sunset, to briefly light every light in the house. Or light candles in each toom to celebrate the return of the sun. If it's been snowing, take time to enjoy walking in the snow, draw an image of the sun into the snow and relect on the sun's warmth.

    Traditional foods for Imbolc include anything dairy, including sour cream, as the Festival celebrated the calving season. Spicy and rich foods, such as curry or anything made with peppers, leeks, onion, chives and/or garlic are appropriate to celebrate the sun, together with mulled wine and anything containing raisins which also represent the sun.

    It's also a good time to clear clutter and look at what you want to achieve this year and ask Brigit's help in making it happen.

    The name literally means "seasonal division", but usually the term refers to the Spring Setsubun, celebrated yearly on February 3rd as part of the Spring Festival and accompanied by a special ritual to cleanse away all the evil of the former year and drive away disease-bringing evil spirits for the year to come.

    valentine heartFriday 14th February - is Valentine's Day and is all about love and compassion, which includes Universal Love for all other living things and also Self-love which is so often overlooked.  I would be delighted if you choose to share this blog with others who might enjoy it, you can use the social media share buttons at the top.

    Some bitterly refer to it as Singles Awareness Day and blame card manufacturers and our materialistic society for love being ritualistically forced upon us every year at this time. 
    However, although the story of 'Saint' Valentine long precedes Hallmark et al, the origins are somewhat blurred as there are historical references to the existence of several different Valentines. Folklore indicates that Valentine was a priest during the third century in Rome. Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage as he believed that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families. Valentine, however, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages in secret. Claudius found out and Valentine was imprisoned, where one version of the legend indicates he befriended a jailer with a blind daughter and he may have somehow managed to restore her sight, resulting in the jailer converting to Christianity. Claudius ordered that Valentine be executed on February 14th and allegedly before his death sentence was carried out, he sent a note to the jailer's daughter and signed it, "From Your Valentine." Hence Valentine's Day is celebrated in his memory. 
      
    However, his death day and his association with lovers and notes may have been convenient for Roman Christians looking for ways to blend existing Pagan/Roman celebrations into their Calendar. 
    Lupercalia image from Wikipedia

    Saturday 15th February is Lupercalia in Ancient Roman tradition.

    Apparently, this was the popular ceremony of fertility, featuring naked men running through the street!  I can’t see this catching on in the UK climate!  

    This image of the Lupercalia Festival in Rome by Adam Elsheimer (18/03/1578 – 11/12/1610) is taken from the Wikipedia entry for Lupercalia and shows men dressed as dogs (or possibly Wolves since Lupus meant Wolf) and goats, Cupid and other personifications of fertility. Hence, some say this ceremony was the precursor for Valentines' Day.

    Saturday 22nd February is the Roman Festival of Caristia. This was a Feast Day occasion of family reunion, when Roman fathers would pay special attention to their families. It was a day of reconciliation when disagreements were to be set aside, but the satirical poet Ovid apparently suggested this would be best achieved by excluding family members who caused trouble.

    Families gathered together to dine and offer food and incense to the Guardian Deities, collectively known as Lares.

    The image (taken by Luis García [GFDL or CC BY-SA 3.0], via Wikimedia Commons) shows a statue of Lar carrying a cornucopia from  the National Archeological Museum of Spain.

    Moon Scarletts shot squareSunday 23rd February is the Ash New Moon @ 15.33.

    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 You Tube Page.

    It is a good day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for the remainder of 2020. 

    Blueberry pancakes 1

    Tuesday 25th February is Mardi Gras, also known as Shrove Tuesday, or within the UK as Pancake Day. Being the final day before Lent, this was traditionally a day for confessing sins and using up all the foods banned during the Lent fast. With pancakes containing butter and milk, they became associated with the date.

    The verb 'shrive' means to gain absolution for one's sins through confession and/or penance. Hence Shrove Tuesday is derived from the tradition that Christians were 'shriven' before Lent. The date of Lent - which takes place in either February or March but always seven weeks before Easter - varies from year to year according to the lunar calendar which determines when Easter falls.

    Interestingly, as with many Christian Festivals, there is a theory that Pancake Day might actually have originated as a Pagan holiday; when eating warm, circular yellow pancakes - resembling the sun - celebrated the arrival of spring.

    Wednesday 26th Februaryis Ash Wednesday, which is generally said to have been named after the tradition of burning away old issues in preparation for Lent. 

    The date of Lent - which takes place in either February or March but always seven weeks before Easter - varies from year to year according to the lunar calendar which determines when Easter falls. 

    However, Ash Wednesday could have obtained its name from an apparent tradition of placing a stick of Ash down one's sock for good luck!  

    Ouch, I can't see that being popular, but then maybe a smaller stick would have been advisable!

    Interestingly, Ash Wednesday, although observed as a Christian Festival probably orginated as a Pagan Festival. It certainly isn't mentioned in the Bible, although in Biblical times, sprinkling oneself with dust and ashes was part of a Indian Vedic tradition as a mark of repentance, and repentance rituals were generally often accompanied with fasting. Furthermore, the German Pagans had a traditiun of putting ashes over their brows to secure protection of the Norse God Odin (one of Odin's names in Norse is Ygg, which also means ash). Wednesday was Odin's day (our weekday name is directly derived from 'Odinsday'). It was only accepted into Catholic Church beliefs at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD. The council also approved a 40-day fast duration to celebrate Lent.  This was the time period during which Constantine was striving for a harmonous union between the Christians and Pagans within the Roman Empire.

    The start date of Lent was still under debate even after the Council of Niceaa. Pope Gregory, in 601, moved the commencement of Lent to Ash Wednesday (from the fourth Sunday of the year); this being 46 days before Easter. This allowed for 40 days of fasting with the six Sundays counting as feast days, making a total of 46 days for Lent. The tradition of using ashes to create the hape of a cross on parishioners foreheads was also instigated by Pope Gregory.

    Monday 6th January is also 12th night - or Epiphany - in the Christian Calendar. The day when traditionally the Christmas Tree and other decorations should be removed until the following year.

    Friday 10th January@ 19.23 is the Full Moon. This is also a penumbral lunar eclipse, peaking at 19.10 (UK time = GMT/UT). This eclipse will technically be visible in London although penumbral eclipses are not always easy to identify.

    Monday 13th January is Plough Monday in England!  Traditionally Plough Monday (the Monday after Epiphany when The Zoroastrian Magi visited the infant Jesus) is the day for setting aside the remnants and excesses of Christmas and "putting one's hand to the plough"; in other words, starting work on a project of some sort.  

    Monday 13th January 7.30-10 pm, Healing Share, Walton-on-Thames, KT12 3BH, £10 (advance) £15 (door). Details here.

    Wednesday 15th Januaryis 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.

    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 (such as 2020) when the date shifts by a single day, because of the complexity of earth-sun relative movement.

    Friday 17th January, 10.30am - 12.30, Newlands Corner (near Guildford); see Other Harmony Healing Events for more. This is a 2-hour Winter Forest Bathing+ session which will take place in all weathers except 30+mph winds. This is also scheduled as my TFBI assessment, so I am expecting my course tutor to join us.

    Monday 20th JanuaryisSt Agnes Eve;a night for meaningful and deep dreams.  In Christian tradition, St Agnes appeared to her parents in a dream the night after she was martyred.

    Saturday 25th January Chinese New Year of the Metal Rat.

    Saturday 25th January isBurns Night in Scotland.  Burns Night is a revered date in the Scottish calendar and celebrates, on the anniversary of his birthday, the life and works of their national Bard, Robert Burns.  Born around 250 years ago; some consider his best known poem as ‘Auld Lang Syne’, though others believe he did not write it himself, but was the first person credited with writing it down for posterity as part of his attempt to preserve Scottish traditional songs. The evening centres on the entrance of the haggis (a type of sausage made from a sheep's stomach) on a large platter to the sound of ceremonial bagpipes. When the haggis is on the table, the host reads the "Address to a Haggis". This is an ode that Robert Burns wrote to the Scottish delicacy! At the end of the reading, the haggis is ceremonially sliced into two pieces and the meal begins.  The same date is St Dwynwen’s Dayin Wales.  St Dwynwenis the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine, being their patron saint of love.

    Thursday 30th January is the Harmony Healing Violet Flame of Amenti (£88 or £44 to RSE graduates) 6-hour course in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

    Thursday 5th March is Ploiaphesia Egyptian Festival of Navigation.  This was when one of the most important festivals of the Egyptian Goddess Isis was celebrated, the Ploiaphesiaor Navigium Isidis (Ship of Isis). The festival marked the opening of the safe sailing season after the stormy weather of winter had passed. A statue of Isis was carried in procession from her temple down to the harbour, where a specially-built ship was moored. The ship would then be loaded with offerings and dedicated to the Goddess, before being launched and carried out to sea by the wind. The festival is described by Apuleius in his Metamorphoses (also known as the Golden Ass). To participate you can enjoy the energy of water and celebrate with processions, lights, mirrors, music and flowers.

  • Sunrise from Isis TempleMonday 22nd April is Easter Monday, which is Bank holiday in the UK. As mentioned in an earlier Blog, whereas the Easter celebration in the UK is based on the Gregorian Calendar, the Orthodox Easter celebrations are based on the Julian Calendar. This year that places Orthodox Easter a full week after the UK Bank Holidays will take place.

    In Egypt, the ancient festival of Sham El Nassim (literally meaning "smelling of the breeze") dates back to Pharaonic times (about 2700 BC) although it is celebrated on the Coptic Easter Monday, which aligns with the Orthodox Easter (so this year on the 29th April). It's not seen as a religious festival as it's a National Holiday for both Egyptian Christians and Muslims. Traditional activities include painting eggs, picnicking, and eating feseekh (fermented mullet).

    Image shows sunrise over the Nile from the Philae Temple. 

    Monday 22nd April is also Earth Day, which is heralded as a pivotal opportunity for people, corporations and governments to join together to create a global green economy. This is the 49th Anniversary of Earth Day and it is hoped that co-ordinated efforts now will be recognized by future generations as a turning point. See EarthDay.org for further news and events in your area. 

    This year is themed on Protect Our Species. "In nature, nothing exists alone." - Rachel Carson, 1962.As the Earth Day Website tells us: Whilst the Earth is home to millions of species, some of which still remain undiscovered, human beings have upset the balance of nature and are causing an extinction of species at an alarming rate. Climate change, Habitat loss, deforestation, pollution, pesticides, poaching and irresponsible agriculture contribute to this. Already it could be irreversible but we have to act now to minimise the far reaching damage we are causing.  Check the website to see what contribution you can make to slowing down the negative impact of our species on our planet.

    Monday 22nd (late) until dawn Tuesday 23rd April - Lyrids Meteor Shower. The Lyrids are an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at their peak. These meteors can produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. This year the shower peaks on April 22nd & 23rd, although some meteors can be visible from April 16th - 25th. Look for meteors radiating from the constellation of Lyra after midnight.  Light pollution from the proximity of the Full Moon on the 26th April this year will not help viewing in 2019.  See EarthSky.org for more

    Observations of the Lyrids Meteor Showers go back over 2700 years! The Ancient Chinese are said to have recorded the Lyrid meteors “falling like rain” in the year 687 BC.

    Even if you can't see anything, there will be an impact energetically.

    Zikiel croppedYou can invoke the Angel Zikiel (Angel Guardian of Meteors and Asteroids) to help bring in new ideas. The image of Zikiel (right) is by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerr's Heart & Soul Angel Cards.

    Zikiel guides the comets and meteorites in their eternal passage through space, tracking man's galactic origins; offering a visionary flash of inspiration from the Sky..

    You can invoke Zikiel by calling his name three times (pronunciation = Zick ee el) and adding 'I call upon you to be with me now, 'in love & light, in love & light, in love and light'. 

    If you have a clear quartz, you can programme it with Zikiel's name and keep it with you to help capture any inspiration thoughts channelled from the heavens tonight and also to help your heart to make the right choices.  

    This ritual is taken from Angela McGerr's An Angel For Every Day - now out of print and in very short supply. However, But we do still have some of Angela's out of print titles (generally also personally signed by her) available via Harmony Healing Shop.

  • Isis (Auset) ImageWednesday 20th June is the Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the Lamps which was held at Sais.

    This is the third great festival in Sais to Aset (Isis). In an under-chapel beneath the temple, lamps were carried in procession around the coffin of Asar (Osiris).

    It was by the power of light, symbolising the life-giving power of the Moon, that Aset rekindled life in her dead husband.

    An intensive two-day workshop covering the detection and removal of etheric devices (hidden messages in the auric field), including Melchisadec Devices, and how removing them opens up the Axiatonal System or Ka Channels (a Higher Self meridian system) facilitating faster progress along one's chosen spiritual path. This workshop covers sacred truth deterrents and past life energy constructs and features attunements to Archangel Michael and Thoth (known as Tehuti in Egypt; Hermes Trismegistus in Greece and Mercury in Rome). For more details see Joanna's Etheric Encodement article on the article section of this Harmony Healing Website.

    The first day features instructions on the scanning and removal of any devices etc, some greater understanding than can be achieved during a one-to-one healing session, plus an initiation into Archangel Michael (for future protection) and reconnection with the Ancient Order of Melchisadec.

    The second day features an initiation into Ra (the Egyptian Sun God), Tehuti (Thoth/Hermes Trismegistus/Mercury) and the Eyes of Horus (comprising the Eye of Ra & the Eye of Tehuti) reconnecting with the left and right eye of Horus ancient Egyptian Mystery Schools. Course numbers are limited to ensure all participants are thoroughly scanned for devices, and to allow plenty of time to practise using the skills.The subject is deep and the pace will be fast and intensive.

  • Moon Scarletts shot

    Friday 19th April @ 12.12 is the Easter Willow Full Moon.

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

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel. See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    To the right is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition.  The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, this is the Willow Moon.  At this time of year, Europeans can expect the best conditions for healthy growth of the Willow, namely lots of rain!  Known as Saille (pronounced Sahl-yeh) it is associated with healing and growth. Willows planted close to your home are reputed to provide protection from flooding, storms and other natural disasters, even warding away other dangers. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website I happily stumbled upon.  This may be why they are often planted in cemeteries. Willow month is the time to work on healing rituals, building esoteric knowledge, studying women's mysteries and nurturing yourself and others.   Also see thoughtco.com.

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Friday 24th May is the Romani and Christian Festival of the Three Marys at Sainte-Maries-de-la-Mar, on the south coast of France.  Here landed Mary Magdalene, Mary Jacob (the sister of Mother Mary known in the Catholic faith as Our Lady) and Mary Salome (mother of James and John). A local Chieftain, Sara the Kali, had a vision of their arrival and by spreading her cloak over the rough sea ensured their safe arrival.

    map of the camargueSaine-Maries-de-la-Mar (Saint Marys of the Sea) is the capital of the Camargue (Provençal Occitan Camarga) in the south of France. Interestingly, it is noted on the Wikipedia page,from where this map was taken [courtesy of ChrisO (Public domain), via Wikimedia Commons], that the village was noted as "Ra" in the 4th century AD by the Roman geographer Rufus Festus Avienus. 

    Ra being the Ancient Egyptian Deity also known as the Sun God, this could reinforce the idea that Mary Magdalene was actually of Egyptian origin (possibly from the southern area of Nubia, where the native people are very dark skinned) and could also have been the revered Black Madonna.

    For a list of Joanna's forthcoming Harmony Healing events, see this recent Harmony Healing Event Update.

  • New Moon image cropped toghtFriday 30th August @ 11:37 is the Pagan Dark Moon and this month it's a Black Moon as it's the 2nd New Moon in the same calendar month.  It's also the second of three consecutive New Moon Supermoons when the moon is at it's closest (Perigree) and could 30 per cent brighter and 14 per cent bigger to the naked eye. However as the New Moon is barely visible, we are unlikely to notice any difference.  More at Earthsky.org

    It will be at it's brightest when the moon reaches lunar perigee (see note below) at 16.59 UK time, it will be the second and closest New Moon Supermoon of 2019.  Perigee timings are given at Lunarplanner.com.

    A Supermoon is when the moon appears larger in the sky because it is reaches the closest proximity to Earth (known as the perigee*) coinciding with the New Moon or Full Moon. Since the New Moon is only a sliver to the naked eye, the Full Moon Supermoons are much more of a visual treat, when the moon may appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than on any other Full Moon occasion. Although it may not seem all that noticeable to us and of course it will depend on good clear viewing conditions; however due to an optical illusion, it will always look bigger and more luminous when closer to the horizon. The Supermoon will also bring about larger than usual perigean spring tides.  In case, like me, you are wondering what spring tides has to do with August, Spring tides are named not for the season, but to represent the sense of bouyancy, bursting forth, rising.They are now also known as Supermoon tidesor King tides.

    *The moon orbits around the Earth in an ellipse which takes just over 29 days, meaning that it reaches points in the year when it is at its closest (perigee, when it is about 363,000 km away) and furthest (apogee, when it is about 405,500 KM) from our planet. Those old enough might be reminded of Bed Knobs and Broomsticks when Angela Lansbury mentions the perigee and apogee in one of her invocations!

    This New Moon Abundance ritual  should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. There are video instructions on my Harmony Healing Facebook Page

    According to Elephantjournal.com in an article from 2018whereas New Moon energy usually last a few days, this intense, life-changing energy of this New Moon trio will remain for the full two month period, from the first Supermoon New Moon on 1st August until the final Supermoon New Moon on 28th September. Those sensitive to energies will feel the heightened charge as extremes of moods, with some sudden unexpected swings. Because Virgo is ruled by Mercury, communications will be intensified, making it advisable to speak carefully to minimise any misunderstandings. Mercury also influences travel plans, vehicles, buying/selling, negotiation, teaching and learning, agreements and contracts.

    New Moons are good for setting intentions, so it's a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for the rest of 2019.  For a list of Joanna's forthcoming Harmony Healing events, see this recent Harmony Healing Event Update

  • dragon boat festival in ChinaFriday 7th June is the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duanwu Festival in Mandarin and Tuen Ng Festival in Cantonese.

    The Festival is to commemorate the Chinese patriot, Qu Yuan, who killed himself by jumping into the river Li in despair.

    He was desperate because his master refused to take his advice and he feared his country falling into the enemy's hands  

    Image right from Chinese Travel Guide.

    It is on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar, which falls this year on Friday 7th June.  However, celebrations often take place on convenient weekends in the Western calendar - such as the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival which takes place this year on Sunday 30th June.

  • Saturday 16th June is the Egyptian night, known as Leyleten-Nuktah, the Night of the Tear Drop.

    A miraculous tear-drop as Aset (Isis) began the mourning of her brother/husband Asar (Osirus), was believed to fall into the Nile causing it to rise and bring new life to the land.

    16th  June – Night of the Teardrop (Festival ofLeylet-en-Nuktah)

    The ancient land of Khemit (Egypt) was incredibly fertile due to the silt deposited by the River Nile.  Many rivers flow north to south and flood in the winter months when the mountain snow melt.s at the source.

    The Nile River was always the backbone of Khemitian life. The mighty river flows northwards for some 4,000 miles from the mountains of Equatorial Africa (Blue Nile) and Lake Victoria (White Nile) before it empties into the Mediterranean Sea via the Nile Delta. The development of the Khemitian civilization could not have happened were it not for the Nile, as it is the only significant source of water in this desert region. It would flood annually in the summer months, depositing tons of nutrient-rich sediment; when the waters receded the silt would stay behind, fertilizing the land, enabling rich agricultural production.

    Nilometers were used to record how high the Nile was during the year.  Nilometers, which were marked staircases build down into the Nile, were placed at strategic points so the Khemitians could monitor the changes in the water level.

    If flooding was too heavy, local villages would be washed away. Minimal flooding or no flood at all would mean famine. A successful harvest depended on the flood levels being exactly right.

    Since the Khemitian lifestyle revolved around the Deities (Neteru), the great ‘inundation’ when the Nile flooded was attributed to Aset’s tears over the death of her beloved Ausar.  Records indicate that in the days of Ancient Khemit, this flooding probably occurred around the middle of June which then coincided with the heliacal rising of Sirius, a star that they associated with Aset and an astronomical event which could have been easily pinpointed. 

    The Khemitians called it, Night of a Teardrop.  On this night, (June 16) when the moon rose high in its sky, Aset shed blessed and mournful tears for her beloved, Ausar. The precious tears were then collected causing the Nile to bring forth its annual flood. Even in Aset’s pain, something divine came forth.

    Bring me the milk of Aset, the flood of Nebt-Het, the overspill of the lake, the surge of the sea, life, prosperity, health, happiness, bread, beer...

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel. See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    Below right is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    Gabriel Harmony Angel CardAt the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook. Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, this is the Oak Moon when the Oak trees are reaching their full bloom splendour. This is the Oak Moon, when they are appraching full bloom. The oak signifies strength and power, typically towering over its fellow trees and was highly sacred to the mightly Druids. The oak is associated with invocations for fertility, strength, power, success and abundance. An acorn is meant to bring luck at interviews or business meetings, whereas catching a falling oak leaf is meant to bring health and wellbeing all year. The Celts called this month Duir, sometimes believed to be the stem word for druid and meaning door. See thoughtco.com.

    Other names for a Full Moon in June are: Flower Moon, Rose Moon, Strawberry Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Oak Moon, Cold Moon, Long Night Moon (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Full Moon could also be called the Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Planting Moon, Milk Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon or Strawberry Moon (after the spring equinox i.e. Northern Hemisphere) or Harvest Moon, Hunter's Moon, Frosty Moon, Beaver Moon, Moon Before Yule or Long Night Moon (after the autumn equinox i.e. Southern Hemisphere). Source = earthsky.org.

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.
