  • 3:3:3 numerology Awaken Your Avatar, 30th March 2019

    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.

  • 3:3:3 numerology Awaken Your Avatar, 3rd December 2019

    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.

    By Awakening our Avatar, we can become masters of our destiny. Just imagine what we can do by tuning in 'en masse' at 3 (am or pm would work, though I fancy pm will be more popular!) on any of these 3:3:3 portals. 

    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.

  • Ancient Wisdom for Modern Living - Khemitology (Applying Egyptian Philosophies) starts Tues 20th Oct, 7- 9.15 pm, £88

    What a strange time it's been globally, it's rather like we're all living in a dystopian novel...

    Anyway, one of the unexpected outcomes for me has been a surge of interest in my Reyad Sekh Em® (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing training, which has been modularised and gone online using Zoom as a virtual training platform. It's available internationally, although the timings for this particuplar module series is more accesible for Uk, Europe and USA/Canada than Australia/New Zealand. To request a series with different timimgs, get in touch.

    The current series started last Thursday evening (UK time) with the Violet Flame of Amenti (it's still possible to join as the teachings are videoed), see my Harmony Healing Website Violet Flame page for details.

    Tomorrow (Tuesday 20th October), the Khemitology module starts and is spread over three consecutive Tuesday evenings (7-9.15 each week) totalling 6¾ hours of tuition and mentoring.

    Khem was the original indigenous name for the land before it became known as Egypt, so Khemitology reflects those ancient beliefs as disseminated by the tribal elders and oral traditional wisdom keepers.

    Here's a summary of the course contents

    Introduction to Khemitology, £88 (+ £4 via PayPal)

    6¾ hour course, 7pm - 9.15pm (UK time - UK & USA friendly timings), Tuesdays 20th October - 3rd November.

    Khemitology is for anyone fascinated by Egypt, outlining the lesser known Ancient Egyptian philosophies and demonstrating how they can be applied in everyday life. Image of Auset (Isis) left is by Jacqui Taliesin El Masry.

    The workshop features:

    • Why Ancient Egypt was called Khem
    • How Khemitology reflects indigenous tribal philosophies
    • Ways in which Khemitology differs from Egyptology
    • Why our familiar Egyptian Deity names and words are actually derived from the Greek language
    • Discovering the potency of working instead with the authentic Egyptian Deity names

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony. A number of virtual courses are starting again this month, including Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1 (which is now fully available as interactive training modules) details onHarmony 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.

  • Angela McGerr Publications - Angelology & Angel Card Book Sale

     
    Books cards new websiteHarmony Healing is a Mystery School training academy run by Joanna Bristow-Watkins.  The courses are designed to help lightworkers and seekers of spiritual truths open up additional perceptions and expand their consciousness. Joanna's emphasis is on Ancient Egyptian wisdoms, especially alchemy, as well as re-connecting with nature. The training methods are intense and best suited to those who are looking for a fast-tracked programme to deepen their esoteric understanding and awareness.  

    Joanna's older sister Angela McGerr is also a Mystery School teacher specialising in Essene Angelology and Blue Star mysteries. However, Angela has managed to create some amazing self study material on the form of Angelology publications: ten published books and an angelic Meditation CD. Having sold close to a million publications in cumulative sales, Angela is probably the most well known Angel author in the UK after Diana Cooper.

    However, all but her final un-illustrated book Angel Healing & Alchemyhave been long out of print and many are rare and collectable.

    Joanna has held stock and handled the retail sales for Angela since her books were first published in 2001. We have carefully stored these books for almost 20 years and many are in pristine condition, apart from some with delicate covers which are looking a bit scuffed in places but in amazing condition inside, as if they were newly printed.  Most of them are signed by Angela although lockdown means that when signed editions have been exhausted there will be a delay until more can be signed.

    We only have a few of each title signed and can’t get more at the moment due to social distancing
    We also have unsigned pre-loved versions of all of the Angel Cards, Angel Almanac, Gold & Silver Guardians (with A-Z of 100 Angels) from £25 + P&P depending on condition.

    A Harmony of Angels is Angela's first book, published in 2001. It's for those new to the Angelology philosophy as interpreted for the 21st Century by Angela. In her own words, this is why she wrote this book. What are you seeking in life? We are all seeking something. My book "A Harmony of Angels", is dedicated to The Seeker of the Way of Love and Light. This is the path of Hope, Courage, Truth, Wisdom, Beauty, Harmony and Healing. Are you such a seeker - a person who is tired of the materialism and destruction in the world? Someone who would like spiritual direction but, uncomfortable with the structure of established churches, not quite sure how to find it. The good news is that by learning how to commune with Angels (God's messengers!) you will never be alone or lack spiritual guidance. Providing you are asking from your heart, you can call upon Angels any time and anywhere and receive their unconditional love! Most of our detailed information on Angels does not come, as you might expect, from the Christian Bible, which names only three specific Angels: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Although important, most of our knowledge comes from other ancient texts; Angels transcend any one religion and are found in Persian, Christian, Jewish and Moslem scriptures. The word Angel comes from the Greek "Angelos", meaning messenger.

    The earliest references are about 6,000 years old, with Angelic beings depicted on ancient Egyptian and Babylonian artefacts. Although we can always call on our personal guardian Angel, there are hundreds of named Angels for given situations that we can call for specific help! The names themselves are magical and contain energy; even using the names brings you closer to the Angelic realms. In the past, people trusted in calling on Angelic help. The faith was lost but is now being rediscovered. Around two thousand years ago a religious sect named the Essenes, living in Qumran on the shores of the Dead Sea, were skilled at healing and practised Angelology; the knowledge was handed down from the time when Joseph led the children of Israel out of Egypt. Angelology is the belief that one must harmonise oneself physically and spiritually to achieve wellbeing. One way of achieving this is to commune with special Angels daily, in order to deal with differing aspects of life.

    The Essenes wrote about this in the Dead Sea Scrolls and their philosophy is just as valid today as it was in the time of Jesus. Indeed, some sources state that Jesus Christ himself was an Essene.

    Gold & Silver Guardian Angel Cards featuring A-Z book of 100 angel channellings. There are times when everyone has problems making decisions or resolving issues. Every one of us has a 'left', or logical, active part of the brain, and a 'right' or intuitive, passive side. Only when these are working effectively together can we come to balanced decisions and lead a happy existence. In her Gold and Silver Guardian Angels, Angela McGerr provides two products for the price of one! Guardian Angel Cards offer a means to seek advice and guidance from gold (active) and silver (passive) angels (to see both sides of a problem) with a key card that adds balance. The Book of Angels describes how to use the cards and features detailed portraits of over 100 angels. The reader can use it in two ways: to find out more information about the angels they have drawn with the cards, or to learn more about all the angels featured. It is, in fact, an angelic 'bible' for those already intrigued by the subject of angels.

    SALE: SIGNED & NEW £40 + P&P

    Angela's semi-autobiographical work: The Angel Quest of the Heart (a Labyrinthine Quest with Melchisadec, Hermes Trismegistus and Pistis Sophia) was published in October 2007. This is a two-book set. The first book is a narrative, based on Angela's own self-healing journey through the 7-turn 7-colour Labyrinth, in which the angels guide her in gradually healing each chakra, and then opening her higher heart flower, which is the 8th chakra - at the heart of the labyrinth - which is also the heart of the true self. The second book contains meditations and mandalas, one for each colour of the Labyrinth, so that readers can undertake their own personal journey either once only, or many times, as each time will heal at a new level. In keeping with Angela's previous publications, the latest book features more beautiful artworks from Richard Rockwood.

    The Love & Light Angel Cards is the third and final set in the trilogy of Angela McGerr's angelic guidance cards that started with the Harmony Angel Cards and continued with the Heart & Soul Angel Cards. The first two sets have had a profound effect on many people's lives and have sold over 300,000 copies. The Harmony Angel Cards set out to show the reader how to bring angels into their everyday lives; the Heart & Soul Angel Cards provided angelic guidance to link the heart's desire with the soul's purpose, and the Love & Light Angel Cards encourages the reader to travel further along the spiritual path to healing, harmony and heart ascension. Love heals and Light empowers.

    This set of extraordinarily powerful angel cards shows how to further heal yourself with Love and extend your journey towards spiritual ascension through the power of Light. It may be used completely independently from the other cards; however it is also a companion set so it can be used for joint readings. It has been designed to build upon the angelic wisdom you may have gained from using the first two sets, allowing you to do a deep and detailed 12-card reading using 4 cards from each set - in this way you will learn your next steps from the angels themselves. As before, the beautifully designed package contains a pack of 48 cards divided into four suits. The accompanying book describes the overall meaning of the four suits, the inherent meanings of each and every card, as well as several different ways of laying them out, with sample interpretations. Love & Light Angel Cards would make a superb gift for a friend, but will prove so invaluable personally that they could be hard to give away!

  • Angels - not just for Christmas

    This Guest Blog by Joanna Bristow-Watkins first appeared at Wonderful World of Wellbeing online.

    Angel Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerrs Harmony Angel CardsThis morning, as the last lyrics of ‘Hark the Herald, Angels Sing’ faded away on my car radio, I was briefly transported back to 1998. I could hear my Reiki teacher recommending that I call in the Parking Angel should I need to a manifest a space in an overflowing car park. Frankly, at the time, I thought she‘d lost the plot; as surely angels were ‘just something for Christmas’.

    Describing myself as spiritual rather than religious, I can appreciate the supportive role institutional religions can play in the community but personally I’ve never felt aligned with the strict doctrines to which some faiths expect believers to comply. So, on reflection, I wonder whether that was my initial resistance to involving angels in my life.

    I’m embarrassed to admit, that at the time, I found the beaming, winged and chubby pre-Raphaelite image of Caucasian angels a little hard to take seriously other than as an adornment on the annual festive greeting cards.

    My sister Angela McGerr was on the same 1998 Reiki Mastery course. Her attitude was markedly different to mine. She told me later her first reaction was not to ‘call in’ anything that she couldn’t fully understand. So, she decided to investigate them. And that’s exactly what she did, almost obsessively for the next 18 months. In fact, she later admitted that she suspects she was hi-jacked by the angels themselves to create a way of making angels accessible in today’s fast-paced society.

    17 years later, in 2015, Angela’s 10th angel book was published, and with cumulative sales nearing one million copies, she was firmly established as a UK best seller in this niche market. She’s since retired from designing angel card sets and writing books but continues to be involved with all things angelic.

    So how did she win me round? Initially my ‘interest’ was purely sisterly support of her growing fascination and success, and I was still lukewarm (to say the least) on a personal level. But over time, I came to appreciate the accuracy of her angel readings and their loving support in my life. Now they are an important feature of my mentoring programme and practitioner teaching courses.

    The first step was to realise that angels have a much longer history of interaction with humanity than we might think, they certainly pre-date most of our contemporary organised religions.

    Angels in Contemporary Culture

    Many people are familiar with the angels in the Christmas story, especially Gabriel, central to the story of the birth of Jesus Christ in the Christian faith. However, Gabriel also appears as an archangel in the Jewish faith, first described in the Hebrew Bible.

    The traditional Shema prayer of the Jewish faith sites Gabriel as one of four archangels called on for protection through the night. A translation would be:

    Michael to my right side, Gabriel to my left, Uriel before me, and Raphael to my back.”

    Indeed, Muslims assert that the Quran was orally dictated by God to the final prophet, Muhammad, through the Angel Gabriel (known to them as Jibril). They believe this took place, in stages, over a period of some 23 years, commencing when Muhammad was 40, in month of Ramadan; and concluding in 632, the year of his death.

    The Nativity is where many people of the Christian faith, whether Protestant, Catholic or other (or no faith!) will first be introduced to angels. Gabriel is one of the most sought-after parts in any school Nativity!

    Returning to the aforementioned cherubic angel images, these are purely representations by the artists of the time so that they could tell a visual story, both in murals and fine examples such as the celebrated fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, Italy.

    Where did that idea come from? And why are they so often blond and Caucasian in appearance?

    Leaving aside the politics of the time, and possible colonial influence, these depictions were an attempt of the current popular culture to represent beings that are much, much older.

    The concept of angels predates Christianity by more than four thousand years. Winged figures were depicted in the earliest recorded civilisation (Sumeria, circa 4000 BC) and Colonel Churchward reported the first glyph representations of angels as being even earlier, in Lemuria, though the existence of Lemuria is not universally accepted. It seem that the term angelology, stems from the Essenes, a healing sect living in the Dead Sea area contemporary with Jesus.

    It may be that our conventional interpretation comes from our brain’s need to recognise what it is seeing as a familiar sight – a bright light surrounding a ‘floating and wraithlike being’ may well be interpreted as a halo and wings. Perhaps this even started with Mary herself, in her attempt to explain what would have been an almost impossible experience to relate to others.

    Angel Raphael by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerrs Harmony Angel CardsSo, what are angels?

    My personal interpretation of angels is as ethereal light beings, a construct shared by many others including my sister Angela, who chose to represent angels in her Harmony Angel Cards and other richly illustrated publications (sadly mostly now out of print, though I still have some signed unused and pre-loved editions available at the Harmony Shop) as images blending the colours and talismans associated with each angel in folklore with the suggestion of feathered wings, rather than humanoid depictions.

    That’s not to say that any other representations are of any less value – perhaps the angels themselves chose to represent themselves in a way that we humans could connect with, as one consensus that most people can agree on is that angels are benevolent and seek to help us.

    On the whole, they are androgenous beings, though some carry more masculine or feminine traits than others. Did you know, that despite our traditional view, Gabriel may well represent more of a feminine energy than a masculine? Gabriel is in fact the Angelic Guardian of the moon and Mondays (the weekdays governed by the moon). In mythology, whereas the sun is depicted as masculine, the moon is viewed as a feminine energy.

    Calling on Angels

    Perhaps this is a particularly good time of year to call on angels to assist you with finding peace, and with receiving and offering good will. Especially this year when everything is in turmoil and constant flux.

    However, you can in fact call on angels to assist you at any time of year, provided it’s for the highest good and you are respectful and appreciative of their loving intent, hence not asking them for anything which would harm others.


    To find out more about connecting with angels in your day-to-day life, you can join us for our New Year New Visionmentoring course (link to https://bit.ly/NewYearNewVision2021 ).

    new moon new vision 5New Year New Vision

    Since this programme is aligned to a full lunar cycle, naturally Gabriel will have a prominent role. We work though the 28 Mansions of the Moon and concentrate on the attributes of each lunar phase to help us overcome hurdles and embrace new opportunities. During the course, you will be enriched with a deeper sense of how to immerse with nature whilst aligning your soul with the lunar cycle and the Pagan Wheel.

    Assisted by angelic helpers, and building on tools including crystalline energy, vision boards and powerful healing techniques, you will feel reborn for the new year, with new focus, new energy and new divine intent. Starting on 13th January - A new moon and time for powerful new beginnings!

    Details at Joanna’s Harmony Healing website or direct from https://bit.ly/NewYearNewVision2021

    In the meantime, I’ll take this opportunity to wish you a happy, peaceful, and loving time, whatever your belief system and celebrations may be.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we hold monthly Full Moon virtual healing circles and New Year New Vision is a lunar connection programme starting on the first New Moon of 2021. 

    If you would like to experience one of our spiritual offerings (meditation, reading, 1:1 healing, a Forest Bathing+ session or a full mentoring course), why not ask for a Harmony Healing gift voucher for a Christmas, birthday or other celebratory occasion?

    Our next virtual healing circle on Tuesday 29th December is at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £10 (+ £1 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.

    New Year New Vision is a mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2021. This includes distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 13th January and 11th February plus Full Moon on Thursday 28th January), plus a ritual with the elements on the Imbolc ceremony (1st February) and ending on the Chinese New Year of the Ox (11th February). Costing £111, it will be available to just 11 participants, more at the Harmony Website.

    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. 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.

  • Aquariid Meteor Shower tonight, pre-dawn Sunday 5th/Monday 6th May

    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.

    As we progress into April, a theme emerges which venerates spring, renewal and fertility as well as nourishment.

    For a more in-depth analysis of the listed festivals and spiritually significant days, such as April Fool's Day and Veneralia, I publish a blog post on the day in question. Or to receive the information to your mail inbox, sign-up for Blog update alerts.

    We are delighted to be allowed back in the forest this month. We have North Surrey Forest Bathing events scheduled for the 17th at Harry Edwards & 22nd April at Newlands Corner, see those dates below for details and Eventbrite booking links.

    We are also re-running the New Moon New Vision virtual course for a full lunar cycle, 12th April - 11th May.  During this programme, we learn together how to take full advantage of energetic support from the moon cycle which assists manifestation when waxing and promotes release when waning.

    April FoolThursday 1st April is April Fool’s day.

    A day for practical jokes, April Fools Day may originate from the move from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar.

    This moved the start of the year by four months! Those who refused to recognise the new calendar and still saw April as the start of the year were labelled "April Fools". Much about this in our specific Blog post on 1st April.

    Veneralia Fortuna Virilis 1st AprilThursday 1st April, in addition to being April Fool’s Day, is also the Roman celebration of Veneralia and Fortuna Virilis.

    Both celebrations seem loosely connected with Venus who is honoured on this day and whose advice is sought on matters of love.

    Good Friday 2nd AprilFriday 2nd April is the Christian Festival of Good Friday, which is a Bank Holiday in the UK as part of the Easter break.

    This commemorates the day when Jesus was crucified. It was not called ‘Good Friday’ until 4th Century and may be a corruption of God’s Friday. 

    Saturday 3rd April is Easter Saturday in the Christian Calendar.

    hare triscol by Jackie MorrisSunday 4th April is Easter Sunday, which is generally taken to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus three days after his crucifixion. Intriguingly, Easter Sunday is not a set date but is calculated according to the Lunar cycle, so it can move around between 22nd March and 25th April. It's fixed as the Sunday following the first Full Moon after the Vernal (Spring) Equinox. 

    This points to the celebration being linked to an earlier Pagan celebration, which were all associated with seasons and moon cycles.  The name Easter itself is derived from the Pagan God Eostre. the Easter Egg is reminiscent of the Pagan egg to symbolise fertility. And of course, the Easter Bunny, a strange addition to a crucifixion story, makes a lot more sense when viewed as a sign of spring, and possibly even a hare. Watch my YouTube presentation: Was Easter superimposed into an earlier Pagan Festival?

    The Hare is another ancient symbol of fertility, with a 28 day gestation period very linked to the lunar cycle.

    In Ancient Egypt the hare is a hieroglyph meaning ‘existence’.

    Magna Mater 4th AprilSunday 4th April, this year, is also Magna Mater in the Roman calendar.

    This is the festival of Cybele, Phrygian Great Earth Mother. Her priests took on female clothes and identities to commemorate her lover (or in siome sources her son) Attis, who was castrated and died of the wounds but was later resurrected.

    Monday 5th April is Easter Monday, which is Bank holiday in the UK.

    World Health Day 7th AprilWednesday 7th April is World Health Day. The message of World Health Day is simple: giving people access to healthcare without the prospect of financial hardship. 

    COVID-19 has highlighted, that our world is an unequal one, with access to healthcare being entirely dependent on the geographical location and conditions into which people are born, live, work, grow and age.

    The theme for 2021 is 'building a fairer, healthier world'.

    New Moon course starts 12th AprilMonday 12th April is the start of our New Moon New Vision; lunar cycle alignment programmerunning until 11th May 2021. Cost is £155.

    This lunar cycle applies the transformational properties of spiritual alchemy to help you feel rejuvenated and purposeful about the rest of the year, via the creation of a Vision Board.
     
    It's a special one lunar month empowerment and attunement programme combining the solar & lunar balancing with various ceremonies throughout the month. The next Moon Alignment Programme begins with the New Moon on the 12th April and culminates with the New Moon on 11th May. This takes in the Pagan Festival of Beltane (1st May) and also the 5th May which carries the Expansion energy of the 555 numerology.
     

    Pagan Dark Moon 13th 2Monday 12th April @ 03.31 (Sunday night/Monday morning) is the New Moon or Pagan Dark Moon.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2021.

    Ramadan 12th AprilMonday 12th April, Ramadan begins after midnight on the 12th April. 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 on 12th April to sunset for 30 days, until Wednesday 12th May.

    Back in the forest 17th 22nd AprilSaturday 17th April,11am - 2pm, Forest Bathing+ in the grounds of Harry Edward's Healing Sanctuary, £38 (+ Eventbrite fee = £38.32).

    Immerse yourself in the healing elements of nature and connect deeply with all your senses. Spend 3 hours in the woods mindfully connecting to your surroundings and living fully in the present moment, guided by me 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.

    We have small groups of maximum 12* including guide(s) to allow us to adopt COVID precautions and social distancing. Book at Eventbrite.If the event is full, email me on  to go on a waitlist. * We were previously exempt from the social group maximum 6 rule due to our categorisation under sport and exercise.

    This is a 3 hour Forest Bathing+ session which will take place in all weathers except 30+mph winds.

    Lyrids 21st AprilWednesday 21st (late) until dawn Thursday 22nd April is the 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 the night of April 21st/22nd, although some meteors can be visible from April 16th - 25th.

    Look for meteors radiating from the constellation of Lyra after midnight, the later you view in the morning of the 22nd, less meteors will be below the horizon and therefore more will be visible but as sunrise approaches light pollution will hamper viewing.

    Floralia 28th AprilWednesday 28th Aprilis the Roman fertility festival of flowers and crops called Floralia, that later developed into celebration of sexuality, and may have influenced the subsequent celebrations for Beltane and May Day.

    Beltane 30th AprilFriday 30th April, is the Pagan Eve of Beltane; celebrations begin with people dancing around the fire clockwise, singing. Sometimes two fires are set, and cattle are driven between the fires to purify them.

    Dew gathered from the grass at dawn is used in potions for luck and indeed it is believed to be lucky to roll naked in the dew!!!  On Beltane, it is traditional to drink from a well before sunrise.

    Wash in the morning dew, and adorn yourself with greenery. Watch the sun come up, dance round the Maypole, and otherwise abandon yourself to the season. 

    Round Full Moon Cakes are eaten and blackberry, elderberry, dandelion wine or cider is drunk. Sacred springs are visited and healing water is drunk.

    July is still British summertime. Time for the orchids, delphiniums, dahlias hydrangeas, irises and sunflowers to bloom, and the lingering perfumed scent of roses, honeysuckle, gardenias and jasmine on the night air. Traditionally, here in the UK, July would feature the Wimbledon Championship tennis finals and Henley Regatta; this year the latter is postponed until August.  

    The month of July was renamed to honour Julius Casear, who was born in this month. Under Roman rule it was previous called Quintilis, meaning the 5th month in Latin. This was before January became the opening month of the calendar year when the Gregorian calendar was established by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called Æftera Līþa (after midsummer).

    During July, as well as the intriguing Mary Magdalene Day (abandoned in 1552), we have a couple of international independence Celebrations – USA (4th) and France (14th). We can look forward to a sprinkling of Zoroastrian, Buddhist and Hindu Festivals as well as a Roman annual commemoration.  However, the month is inundated with Egyptian Deity commemorations featuring the birthday of Ra (13th) then the month ends with the fiveEpagomenal Days - also known as the 'Days out of Time' - which celebrated the Birthdays of five major Egyptian Deities, culminating with the end of the Egyptian calendar year with 1st August being their New Year. Egypt was formerly known asKhem in times of antiquity. To mark the auspicious relevance of these dates to the Ancient Egyptian calendar, I am running my Khemitology course on Tuesday evenings 20th July - 3rd August. We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on the 18th & 22nd with the Full Moon Guided Healing meditation taking place on Saturday 24th, the evening of the Lunasa Thunder Moon (reaches its peak at 03.37 that morning). 

    1 July Tir JishanThursday 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.  At the end of the festival go to a high place and throw them into the wind. 

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

    4 July American Independence DaySunday 4th July is American Independence Day.

    This marks the anniversary of unanimously adoption of the Declaration of Independence, by the Second Continental Congress in 1776

    The Declaration announced that the 13 colonies claimed their separation from England, which eventually led to the formation of the United States.

    which will take place in all weathers except 30+mph winds. Book at EventbriteIf the event is full, email me on  to go on a waitlist. 

    10 July New MoonSaturday 10th July (Friday night/Saturday morning)@ 02:17is the New Moon.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2021. 

    13 July Birthday of Ra full bodyTuesday 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. 

    13 July Games of ApolloTuesday 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.”

    14 July Bastille DayWednesday 14th July is Bastille Daya national holiday in France.

    This commemorates a mob of Frenchmen, rebelling against the rule of their king, who stormed a prison to obtain weapons and free prisoners.

    It sparked the French Revolution in 1789.

    Untitled designSunday 18th July,11am - 2pm, Forest Bathing+ in the grounds of Harry Edward's Healing Sanctuary, £38 (+ Eventbrite fee = £38.32).

    Immerse yourself in the healing elements of nature and connect deeply with all your senses. Spend 3 hours in the woods mindfully connecting to your surroundings and living fully in the present moment, guided by me 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.

    We have small groups of maximum 16* including guide(s) to allow us to adopt COVID precautions and social distancing. Book at Eventbrite.If the event is showing as full, email me on  j to go on a waitlist. *We were previously exempt from the social group maximum 6 rule due to our categorisation under sport and exercise.

    Khemitology Drafting with keyTuesdays 20th, 27th July and 3rd August, is the Harmony Healing Virtual Interactive training course Introduction to Khemitology, 7.15-9.30pm (UK time), £88. 3 x 2¼ hour evening course.

    Worth 1 unit towards the RSE Level 1. Held remotely on Zoom. 

    22nd July Mary Magdalene DayThursday 22nd July was celebrated in the First Book of Common Prayer, 1549, as Saint Mary Magdalene’s Day in the Christian calendar.  When the Second Book of Common Prayer was published 3 years later in 1552, this feast day, amongst others was omitted.

    Early celebrations of Mary Magdalene's Feast Day included marriage symbolism such as creating your own healing oil blends "for the marital bed”, probably including oils such as rose, sandalwood, and ylang ylang. 

    Apparently the original feast day venerated her as a representative of the perfect wife (church liturgy recommended readings such as Proverbs 31:10-31), so it is a day to celebrate the Sacred Feminine, maybe plant something, sew something, cook something and, of course, love something.

    24 July Guru PurnimaSaturday 24th July, being the day of the Full Moon in July, it is also Guru Purnima (the Full Moon of the Gurus) in Hindu tradition. The day of full moon, Purnima, in the month of Ashadh of the Hindu calendar is traditionally celebrated as Guru Purnima by Hindus.

    On this day, devotees offer puja (worship) to their Guru. The Sanskrit root "Gu" means darkness or ignorance. "Ru" denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore one who removes the darkness of ignorance is a Guru.

    It is a day for celebration and worship, a day on which the disciples remember and express their gratitude to the lineage of Gurus. Hindus believe that a Guru is necessary to make one understand the formless Divinity.  

    24 July Asalkha Puja daySaturday 24th July is Asalhka Puja Day; a Buddhist commemoration of the Buddha's first public speech to five ascetics. He declared the middle way, the noble eight-fold path and the four noble truths upon which Buddhism is based. 

    26 July eve of Epagomenal DaysMonday 26th July (or 13th July) is the Egyptian eve of the Epagomenal Days of celebration for the birthdays of their ancient major Deities. The exact correlation of the Egyptian New year to the modern calendar is disputed, but I favour the linking with the heliacal rising of Sirius (dawn visibility of Sirius) as this star, known to the Egyptians as Sopdet (pronounced Soppday) was closely associated with Aset. 

    The celebrations began on the Eve of the Epagomenal Days - viewed as 26th July, although some sources equate it to 13th July). The following days marked the birthdays of the five children of the Egyptian Deity Nut. 

    27 July birthday of AusarBeing dates of powerful Egyptian Energies these may prove ideal days for an Egyptian Energy Reyad Sekh Em 1-2-1 healing session. 

    28 July birthday of HeruAccording to myth, Tehuti (Thoth) enabled Nut to give birth to her five children [Aset (Isis), Ausar (Osirus), Set, Heru (Horus the elder) and Nebt-het (Nephthys)] by using his cunning to win a game of draughts with the moon.

    By winning a seventy second part of the moon's light, he managed to create five extra days (the Epagomenal Days, also known as the Days out of Time), which allowed Nut to give birth to her five children without breaking Ra's decree that her children could not be born on any existing calendar day.

    This myth more than any other is responsible for Tehuti (Thoth)'s role as a lunar deity.  

    29 July birthday of SetTuesday 27th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Ausar (Osirus). 

    He is also known as Wzr, Wesir, Asar, Ausir, Usir, Usire,Osirus,Osirus. The latter two versions being used later after the Greek occupation, but the variation is mainly due to the lack of vowels in heiroglyphic language meaning that there are many phonetic representations. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. 

    30 July birthday of Aset

    Wednesday 28th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Heru (Horus).

    This is Heru-ur [also known as Horus the Elder (Gr)], sibling of Ausar and Aset, not their son. Not all sources list him as a sibling, Egyptian mythology widely varies depending on the era and geographical location of the source within Egypt. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. 

    Thursday 29th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Set (Seth). Set is also known as Seth (Gr), Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh or Suty which probably ultimately led to the term SatanSee the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    31 July birthday of Nebt hetFriday 30th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Aset [Aset, Iset, Isis (Gr)]

    Auset is responsible for resurrecting her murdered husband and, being mad with grief, uses her magical powers to temporarily restore breath and life into Ausar in order to concieve their son Heru.See the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    Saturday 31st July is the Egyptian Birthday of Nebt-het  [Nebet-Het, Nebthet, Nepthys (Gr)].

    Nebh-het is the sister-wife of Set and is typically paired with her sister Auset when undertaking funerary rites because of their protective priestess roles with mummified bodies. See the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    June is British summertime. The roses bloom, imprinting their perfumed scent into the extended evenings leading to the Solstice on the 21st. Garden flowers and hedgerows are splendidly colourful and summer berries are abundant.  This year, after extended lockdown, we will relish the picnic season with strawberries & ice-cream plus elderflower cordial; despite optimism versus realism whilst planning for both rain and/or sunburn risk.

    The month could be named after Juno, the Roman Goddess Goddess linked with marriage. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called sera monath (dry month), which is not necessarily our modern-day experience.

    During June, as well as our own traditional British Festivals, we have a couple of international events – World Environment Day (3rd) and Asteroid Day (30th).  We can look forward to a sprinkling of Chinese, Egyptian and Roman celebrations plus the Bootid Meteor Shower as well as a solar eclipse on 10th June. Unlike the lunar eclipse at the end of May, this solar eclipse will be visible in most of UK and Europe, and like the May lunar eclipse it will have an energetic impact globally. We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on 19th & 22nd with the Full Moon Guided Healing meditation taking place on the 23rd, the night before the Solstice Strawberry Moon (coinciding with Mid Summers Day) reaches its peak.

    5th June alternative World Environment DaySaturday 5th June is World Environment day, which has been celebrated annually since 1972.

    Over the years, the day has focused on such issues as acid rain, oceans, water, and green cities.

    Happy World Ocean Day Instagram SquareTuesday 8th June is World Ocean Day.

    This annual event, recognised since 2016, is designed to unite and rally the world to protect and restore our blue planet.

    World Ocean Day, powered by World Ocean Day Youth Advisory Council, works with an international network of youth and organisational leaders, in more than 140 countries, to support collaborative conservation.

    10th June New MoonThursday 10th June @ 11:53 (Solstice Dark Moon & Annular Solar Eclipse), visible in most of Europe, North America & Asia, plus in North/West Africa, Atlantic & Arctic areas. See 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 Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2021.

    14th June Chinese Dragon Boat FestivalMonday 14th June is scheduled as 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  It is on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar, which falls this year on Monday 14th June.  However, celebrations often take place on convenient weekends in the Western calendar - such as the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festivalwhich was scheduled to take place this year in late June.  I'm not sure either willl be happening.

    16th June Leyleten NuktahWednesday 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. 

    Sources vary as to whether this is 14th/16th/17th or 18th June; the date is actually the 11th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Ba-oo-neh, so the confusion arises when trying to covert this to our Gregorian calendar.

    20th June Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the LampsSunday 20th June is the Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the Lamps which was held at Sais (source Bibliotheca Alexandrina, p31, also available via Academia.edu,date from Moonwise Calendar). 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.

    The exact date is actually the 13th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Epeiph, so confusion arises when trying to covert this to our Gregorian calendar and some sources give variations especially 21st June.

    21st June Summer SolsticeMonday 21st June at 04.32 is the Pagan Celebration of the Solstice, the moment when the sun enters Cancer.  In the Northern Hemisphere, this is viewed as the triumph of light, the ecstatic culmination of the sun, yet the start of growing darkness.

    Old traditions included: Making a bonfire on a hilltop, sing, drink, laugh and time of merry-making.  Processions with torches and lanterns, rolling wheel down hill to mark the start of the sun’s descent, blessing cakes and wine, waiting for the dawn and greeting the sun when it rises, sleeping by a spring, rolling naked in the dew of the summer sunrise!

    It's the Summer Solstice Oak Strawberry Supermoon as well as Midsummers Day, also known as the Lotus Moon, Oak Moon, Cold Moon or Long Night’s Moon.

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

    24th June Mid Summers DayThursday 24th June is also Midsummers Eve 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. 

    This is also the Roman Festival of Fors Fortuna.  Forsis 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.

    26th June Bootids Meteor ShowerSaturday 26th June (Friday night/Saturday morning) is predicted as the peak of the Bootids Meteor Shower; if they are visible at all this year.  Although they are not active every year, they can occur any time between 22nd June and 2nd July.

    In 2021, with the Full Moon occurring on 24th June, the peak dates will span a period of considerable moonlight pollution.

    From more northerly latitudes (including UK), the all-night twilight poses an additional problem for observers.

    More at in-the-sky.org, including a map of the radiant point.

    30th June Asteroid DayWednesday 30th June is also Asteroid Day. Asteroid Day was co-founded in 2014, by Dr. Brian May, astrophysicist and lead guitarist of QUEEN, together with Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 Astronaut, Danica Remy, President of B612 Foundation and filmmaker Grig Richters.

    Asteroid Day events take place annually on 30th June to mark the anniversary of the Tunguska impact in 1908. 

    Its purpose is to expand the understanding of asteroids and to ensure that any asteroids which might ever have a direct impact on our planet are carefully monitored.

    Selected Events (Harmony Healing and other events as notified) in black

    May 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 (lockdown rules allowing) 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, we can look forward to Roman and Egyptian celebrations plus exciting 555 numerology (5 being the number of spiritual expansion) featuring three times this month (5th, 14th & 23rd) which we can expect to bring a tangible shift in our personal spiritual awareness as well as a lunar eclipse towards the end of the month. We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on 15th & 27th plus two virtual study courses starting again on the 14th & 17th.

    On the 26th we have a total lunar eclipse. Visible only in Australia, South/East Asia, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, most of North America, Antarctica & Indian Ocean - so not visible here in the UK or Europe - but we will still be affected energetically. Eclipses always bring the unseen into focus.

    May Day BeltaneSaturday 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 MaySaturday 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!

    1st May Surrey daySaturday 1st May is Surrey Day here in our locality. Discover Guildford are organising a Surrey Hike from 11am until 3pm, meeting outside the March Hare Pub, the route will trek along the River Wey, pass historic buildings, meander through ancient woodland and enjoy stunning views from surrounding hills.

    Donation based, but must be booked via Eventbrite.

    Sunday 2nd May is Easter Sunday in the Orthodox Church. This year, we celebrated Easter here in the UK on the first weekend in April.

    Sham El Nassim 5th AprilMonday 3rd Mayin Egypt, is the ancient festival of Sham El Nassim (literally meaning "smelling of the breeze") which dates back to Pharaonic times (about 2700 BC) although it is celebrated on the Coptic Easter Monday.

    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).

    Monday 3rd May, in 2021, is also early May Bank Holiday in the UK.

    Veneration of the ThornTuesday 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. 

    555 numerologyWednesday 5th May is a primary 555 in numerology.2021 is a '5' year in numerology (2+0+2+1 = 5), May is the 5th month and today is the 5th day of the month, so this is a primary 555 as each component of the month adds up to 5.

    Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers and the science attributing significance and meaning to seemingly random numbers happening globally or noticed in our environment. Double or triple digit numbers are added together and reduced into a single digit (as above with the digits of the year). 

    In numerology, the number 5 can be said to represent curiosity, change, movement, travel, freedom, adventure, variety, sensuality, experience and being detached to outcomes. It is the number of the knowledge seeker and teacher as well as being imaginative, playful and child-like.

    But by far the most vital representation of the number 5is expansion, particualrly regarding personal cellular vibration; its the number of divine grace, harmony & balance.

    We have  5 elements; earth, fire, water, air & spirit or earth, air, fire, metal and wood (Chinese philosophy). The 5th dimension represents spirit or ether.

    We have 5 perceptions (taste, touch, smell, hearing and sigjht) and 5 digits at the end of each limb.

    The 5-pointed stair represents the Microcosm - God in Man or Man's Divine Spark.

    Double numbers (i.e. 11, 22, 33 etc.) and triple numbers (111, 222, 333 etc.) are known as repdigits and intensifies the meaning. 555 is said to represent a life changing thought/event has just occurred. 

    Friday 14th and Sunday 23rd May will carry secondary 5:5:5 energy as the components of these dates also add up to 5. 

    There will be a full Harmony Healing Blog entry posted on 5th May featuring finer details on the meaning of numerological triple numbers and more on the interpretation of 555 specifically, as well as a special 555 meditation available from Harmony Shop for £15.55 (£9.99 to subscribers). The meditation can be used on any or all of the 555 dates this month. Subscribers to the Blog updates will be sent the 555 Blog and meditation reminders.

    For the amazing expansive triple 5 numerology energy we'll be experiencing, we have a 555 meditation available for £15.55 or you can join our live 555 Guided Meditation (which can be used on the 5th, 14th and/or 23rd May).

    AquaridsWednesday 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 (although the waning Moon may slightly hamper viewing, New Moon on the 11th is close enough to help reduce light pollution, but these ETA Aquariids can appear any time between 24th April and 20th May.

    9th May LemuriaSunday 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).

    Monday 10th - Sunday 16th May is Mental Health Awareness Week here in the UK, and the theme this year is Connect with Nature.

    Sadly, the Covid-19 Pandemic and resulting lockdowns, won't have helped mental health at all, with loneliness and isolation a known cause of depression already. Thank goodness the government advice included going out for exercise regularly. 

    On the plus side, this last year has put health and wellbeing in the public eye more than ever.

    Most of us have a natural affinity with nature - in fact the word 'natural' itself implies that! A simple therapy for a headache or low mood can be to go for a walk (or even sit and read) in a local woods or other beauty spot or even your nearby park and get some fresh air.

    Beltane dark moonTuesday 11th May is New Moon @ 20:00. This is Beltane Dark Micro Moon.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. 

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

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2021.

    Panegyric of IsisFriday 14th May is the Egyptian Celebration known as the Panegyric of Isis, when Aset (Isis) found Asar (Osiris) and duly celebrated.

    Offerings of wine, bread and milk are made and traditionally Auset is praised for her gifts.  It is a happy time for celebrating quests in life.

    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. During the pre-Dynastic period of Khem (Ancient Egypt), the Violet Flame of Amenti was ruled by the Deities Ausar (also known as Wzr or Osirus), brandished by Sekhmet, and made freely available to Akhenaton.

    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.

    Argei 15 MaySaturday 15th Mayis the Ancient Roman Ceremony of Argei.At this festival, 27 human-shaped bundles of rushes, known as Argei were carried in an anti-clockwise procession through the city; possibly in a ritual undertaken as a substitute for human sacrifice.

    Super Blood MoonWednesday 26th May is Flower Moon & Supermoon (and Total Lunar Eclipse) @ 12:14. This is the second of three consecutive Supermoons. Total lunar eclipses are sometimes called a Full Blood Moon Eclipse because of the orange-red glow the moon seems to adopt during the eclipse phase.

    The Full Moon is closest to the Earth on the day of this eclipse too, making it seem larger in the sky, hence it is a Blood Super Full Moon Eclipse.

    Although the eclipse won't be visible in UK or Europe, it will still affect us energetically. It will be at least partially visible throughout the majority of North & South America, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Antarctica, South/East Asia, Australia, Pacific. More at timeanddate.com.

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

  • Friday 12th February, Chinese New Year of the Ox

    Chinese New Year w goldFriday 12th February is Chinese, and Japanese, New Year of the Metal Ox which will last until Sunday 30th January 2022. According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2021 is more of a lucky year for men and women born in the Year of the Ox, the Year of the Snake, the Year of the Rooster, and the Year of the Rat. Chinese New Year image by Antonia Skelton.

    The Chinese calendar rotates through 60-year cycles based on 12 earthly branches, each represented by an animal year, as well as five element years which are wood, fire, earth, metal and water.  2020 was the Year of the Metal Rat and 2021 is the Year of the Metal Ox. Each earthly branch is characterised, on a deeper level, by a yin or yang force and its own element.

    In the Year of the Rat, the force was the active, fast and hard, masculine yang energy whilst its element was water, known for being in constant flux. The ox’s earthly branch, in contrast, carries yin energy, which is feminine energy that is passive, soft and slow. Its element is earth, represents stability and nurturing. It is believed these characteristics of the ox and its associated energies have positive and favourable synergy.

    The sign of the Ox is the second animal of the Chinese zodiac and represents hard work, positivity and honesty that will be manifested in all of us in the coming 12 months, according to astrologers. In order, the 12 zodiac animals are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

    The Chinese Astrological year is governed by the lunar cycles. Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very 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. 

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the next virtual healing circle later this month on Friday 26th February, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £10 (+ £1 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 14th May, Moon Lodge Healing Women's Circle with Sarah Jane

    moon lodge w window 1Friday 14th May (usually the third Friday of the month) 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 crystalhealingbysarahjane.co.uk or emai.

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 16th October, New Moon & Supermoon @ 20.32

    Friday 16th October @ 20.32 is the New Moon or Pagan Dark Moon and it's a Supermoon.

    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 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!

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy.There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board (downloadable instructions on this page) for the rest of 2020. Hopefully a move towards a world where we can move freely again and are enjoying a global economic recovery.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very 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.

    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 - a new series off virtual interactive training modules starts with Violet Flame on Thursday 15th October (this is still open to late starters) and Khemitology Tuesday 20th October, details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events.  

    The next virtual healing circle is 7.30-9.30pm (UK time), 31st October, which is the Reed Full Moon, as well as being Halloween.

    Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence MP3 meditations and 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.

  • Friday 19th April, Willow Full Moon

    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 19th February, Kissing Friday

    Kissing Friday by DarkWorkX from PixabayFriday 19th February is Kissing Friday. The days leading up to and into Lent were Collop Monday, Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Fritter Thursday and Kissing Friday (source: Lia Leendertz's2020 Almanac).

    According to historic.co.uk, this bizarre custom was especially popular in the Victorian and Edwardian period and only died out in the mid-20th century. Although unthinkable these days, a schoolboy could kiss a girl on this day without fear of repercussions. 

    Of course, first of all the girl had to be caught and in some instances this involved tying ropes across the street and passing girls would have to pay a kiss for safe passage across the rope. Others would simply chase the girls until they caught them. Indeed, Kissing Fridaywas also the one day every year when girls could leave school early, to avoid being chased home by the boys.

    In the Leicershire village of Sileby, this day was called Nippy Hug Day. Here, if the girl actively resisted a kiss, the boy could 'louse' (pinch) her bottom, a disturbing reference to the action of pinching off lice.

    Similarly, in areas of Cumbria, the day was known as Nippy Lug Day, where the custom involved pinching the ears.

    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. The fact that Lent, and indeed Easter, are determined by the lunar calendar tends to suggest that they were superimposed over Pagan celebrations.

    The Council of Nicaea, in 325 AD, approved a 40-day fast duration to celebrate Lent. This was the time period during which Constantine was striving for a harmonious union between the Christians and Pagans within the Roman Empire.

    The start date of Lent was still under debate even after the Council of Nicaea. 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 shape of a cross on parishioners foreheads was also instigated by Pope Gregory. 

    See bibleinfo.com,beaconoftruth.com, plant-lorecomwebsites for references. The latter two websites are not hypelinked because they flag up as insecure.

    By partaking in old traditions such as Kissing Fridaycommunities retain a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

    Aligning ourselves with other members of the community through mutual celebration 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 a new series of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1Egyptian Alchemy healing courses started this week with Violet Flame and Khemitology (late starts accepted until next week two has aired).

    If you are looking for regular spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the next virtual healing circle later this month on Friday 26th February, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £10 (+ £1 Paypal fee).

  • 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.

  • Friday 1st January, New Year's Day & Quadrantids Meteor Shower

    Friday 1st Januaryis New Year’s Day and is a Bank Holiday in the UK since 1973 (phew, no-one would turn up for work on time if it wasn't, although now many are working from home perhaps they would dial in briefly) and time for New Year’s Resolutions!  According to Isiopolis, here in the Northern Hemisphere, Sirius (known to the Egyptians as Sopdet, the Star of Auset/Isis) reaches its highest point in the night sky at midnight on New Year's Eve, making it a perfect time to embark on our own personal rites of renewal and reorientation.

    QuadrantidsFriday 1st – Tuesday 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 Boötes (near the Big Dipper in our sky) not far from Boötes’ brightest star Arcturus; some blazing more than halfway across the sky. The meteors will radiate from the northern sky, but appear in all parts of 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 Full Moon on Wednesday 30th December, there is likely to be too much light pollution.  See earthsky.org for more details.

    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 & light'. 

    If you have a clear quartz, you can programme it with Zikiel's name and keep it with you to help capture any inspirational 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 short supply. However, we do still have some of Angela's out of print titles (generally also personally signed by her) available via Harmony Healing Shopwhich has collectable signed copies of the Heart & Soul Angel Cards for £75 plus postage and packing, as well as some pre-loved fully complete sets for £20 + postage and packing.  An Angel For Every Day is available at £35 (paperback) or £50 (hardback) plus postage and packing. 

    Aligning ourselves with community celebrations 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. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have New Year New Vision which is a lunar connection programme starting on the first New Moon of 2021 (more details linked and below) and our monthly Full Moon virtual healing circle taking place on Thursday 28th January.

    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?

    New Year New Vision is a mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2021. This includes distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 13th January and 11th February plus Full Moon on Thursday 28th January), plus a ritual with the elements on the Imbolc ceremony (1st February) and ending on the Chinese New Year of the Ox (11th February). Costing £111, it will be available to just 11 participants, more at the Harmony Website.

    Our next virtual healing circle on Thursday 28th January is at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £10 (+ £1 Paypal fee).

  • 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 21st August, Roman Festival of Consualia

    Image of Circus maximusFriday 21st August is the Roman Festival of Consualia, to honour Consus, the god of counsel, and the one who protects the harvest, which was in storage at the time of the festival.  Mars, as a protector of the harvest, was also honoured on this day, as were the Lares, the household Gods that individual families held sacred. 

    During the celebration horses, mules, and assess were exempted from all labour, and were led through the streets adorned with garlands and flowers. Chariot races were held this day in the Circus Maximus, which included an odd race in which chariots were pulled by mules.Roman Chariot image by elukac from Pixabay
