  • Monday 30th May @ 12:32 is the New Moon

    New Moon image png

    Monday 30th May @ 12:32 is 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 You Tube Page.

    It is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for 2022.  Focussing on what you want to manifest in your life is a really effective way of bringing harmony, balance and wellbeing into your life. Creating a Vision Board which illustrates pictorially how you envisage your goals taking shape, really helps to make the possibilities seem real and attainable and gives a source of reference later when you want to look back and compare what you set out to achieve to what has materialised in the interim.

    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. For full immersion with moon energy join one of our New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment Programmes. The next one is 25th October - 23rd November and costs £155.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we hold monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations.During this session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. Book at thHarmony Shop.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 Egyptian Alchemy Healing. Featuring four online modules of Khemitology (Ancient Egyptology according to the indigenous oral traditions), Violet Flame of Amenti, Mindful Chakra Balancing & Essene Angelology.Missed sessions are fully recorded so that late registrations or are possible. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 costs £266 and run about three times a year. the individual modules are stand-alone and cost either £88 or £66, hence the RSE 1 Package offers a cost saving. 

    A virtual Violet Flame of Amenti evening course recently completed on 26th May at a cost of £88. The Violet Flame is an ancient tool of alchemy and this course features over 6 hours of tuition, a manual and an attunement into the Violet Flame. Since the zoom sessions are recorded, it is possible to study the interactive material after the course has completed.

    Other services
    Within Surrey, via Harmony In Nature, we facilitate Forest Bathing+ Sessions to help adults reconnect with nature and reap the therapeutic benefits. 

    Currently, MP3 meditations and distant readings and healings are proving popular and we offer Harmony Healing Vouchers for any value for use on Harmony Healing services andHarmony in Nature vouchers for Forest Bathing vouchers (£35).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

     
     
  • 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.  

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Annual Meteor Showers

    Zikiel croppedMeteor Showers take place at the same sort of time every year, but what changes is the light conditions depending on proximity to the Full Moon (dates for this year listed under Angela McGerr's Full Moon Angelic Meditation with Gabriel)  or New Moon (dates for this year listed under New Moon Abundance Ritual). See below for chronological order of the annual showers. Two excellent sites for details each year are Earthsky Website - I usually use their excellent radiant point images (with permission from Deborah Byrd) and Time and Date.Both give great instructions for maximising your viewing opportunities.  I usually insert a link in the Harmony Blog to the correct page for the current shower, where is the links above are generic.

    Watching meteors can be  a very therapeutic way to spend an evening. Choose the darkest spot available and check on one of the sites whether you are in location from where they can be seen (assuming minimal light pollution from street lights, large neighbouring towns etc.), the direction to look in (radiant point) and whether the best time for that shower is after midnight or just pre-dawn. When our girls were young, we would take some sun loungers out into the garden with hot drinks and duvets and lie outside for hours making some wonderful memories. The Perseids are the easiest ones to use for this as it's School Holidays and hopefully ambient weather, at least it should be here in the UK.  In the Southern hemisphere I guess the Quadrantids, Draconids or Orionids might be a better choice.

    Remember, even if you can't see anything during a Meteor Shower, there will be an impact energetically.

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

    Zikiel guides the comets and meteorites in their eternal passage through space, tracking man's galactic origins. 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.

    Skywatching with other interested parties develops a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony. We have a number of virtual courses including monthly virtual healing circles (online event for personal and global healing plus Joanna endeavours to get everyone into a unity consciousness experience) and also Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1which is now fully available as interactive training modules, 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.

    If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, 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.

  • Calling all Lightworkers (Part 1), what we can do personally to make a global difference

    VSA.logo.JPG"It’s easy to get disheartened over the sorry state of affairs – world pollution, ecological disaster, global warming, starvation, racial tension, corruption and now a pandemic; our media make us feel powerless, but is this really the case?

    If, as many spiritual leaders believe, we create our own reality, then by implication we must take collective responsibility for this international chaos - surely even more reason to despair. However, various publications (notably The Secret, 2006) outlining the ancient Law of Attraction and further self-empowerment techniques paint a very different picture.

    The Law of Attraction predicts that we attract into our lives whatever we spend our time focusing on. We are told it is down to a Universal Law, that the mind works to manifest whatever we seek. So, it is prudent to filter your thoughts and keep them positive and constructive".

    Find out what you can do as a Lightworker, via my Guest Blog on THE VICKYSOUL ACADEMY (where I am a member of the teaching team, known as Tribe Leaders), linked below. I would like to post the entire article to my own Harmony Healing Blog, but as some of you will know Google - and other search engines - will identify it as a plagiarised article, even though it's my own work, because it's already published on another site. 

    This is part one of a series of articles I will be writing for the site on how we can make a difference to our own enlightenment, and by so doing, have a wider impact on human consciousness and improve the global predicament.

    So please do visit THE VICKYSOUL ACADEMY website which you find a useful resource and where you will find other Guest Blogs from established and up-and-coming spiritual mentors. If you like the article, please do give it a heart and all shares and comments are welcome...

    THE VICKYSOUL ACADEMY is dedicated to inspiring and igniting the shift in human consciousness, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives, synchronising perfectly with my Harmony Healing principles.  

    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. Full details of  Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 are on Harmony Healing Virtual Events.

    We are also running a New Year New Vision mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2021. Aligning with the moon cycle is a massive part of what the ancients held as foundational for a healthy existence. This programme includes virtual gatherings, distant attunements to the Moon (New Moons on 13th January and 11th February plus Full Moon on Thursday 28th January), plus an Imbolc (1st February) ritual with the elements. The lunar month ends 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.  

    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.

  • Calling all Lightworkers (Part 2), what we can do personally to make a global difference

    VSA.logo.JPG

    Calling all Lightworkers 21.12.2020

    By Joanna Bristow-Watkins, harmonyhealing.co.uk, December 2020

    Last month, in Calling all Lightworkers - Part 1, we introduced the concept of Lightworkers and suggested some mindfulness exercises to try. We also discussed that, since we supposedly create our own reality, we must take collective responsibility for the current global disasters, and theoretically could potentially 'uncreate' the mess, too.

    According to David Hawkins (author of Power Versus Force) and Owen Waters (author of The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness), if the thoughts and emotions are emanating from more spiritually developed individuals, then the universal response is faster and more intense. Thus, the more enlightened we become, the stronger our influence. How uplifting to learn that we can make a positive difference to the world situation simply by working on our own consciousness. This is explained in our video

    Furthermore, this positive intent can be amplified exponentially when like-minded people get together in focused groups, where the total output is much greater than the sum of the parts. This is especially true if the group meditation takes place at energy vortices or other sacred locations, but any group of Lightworkers meditating together has a profound influence on the planet as a whole and all its inhabitants.

    Sacred sites and the chakras of the planet

    Sacred sites are traditionally locations where the veil separating higher vibrational dimensions is thin. Often they are energy ‘hotspots’ positioned on junctions of ley-lines or electro-magnetic force fields.

    Whilst our ancient forefathers were more adept at detecting these, some of us can still sense a tingling
    sensation which undoubtedly fosters a ‘feelgood factor’,   particularly when tied-in with the opening of
    new galactic portals;  dates when we all experience heightened energy vibrations.  These ley-lines and
    energy hotspots form the meridians and chakra centres of the Earth.

    Therefore, by focussing the intent for planetary healing from these, our efforts are amplified to create an entire global energy shift. You can compare this to focusing on a specific chakra of a client you’re working with, or on yourself.

    Currently, we may not be able to easily travel to the more powerful sacred sites, but we can go somewhere local to us where we sense this ‘feelgood factor’, it could be a beautiful place in nature that we’ve previously discovered nurtures us and give us an emotional lift, perhaps somewhere with a stunning view or an ancient forest. Any location with spectacular scenery or woodland will give us that nature connection we all crave on a cellular level, where we can almost determine the moment-by-moment nourishing flow to our DNA and resulting boost to our immune system.

    Disconnect from WiFi and reconnect with the forest

    The absolute best therapy is to be found in ancient forest, where it has recently been scientifically demonstrated that the trees have created their own network of overlapping roots interconnected by a special ‘mycorrhizal’ fungus to produce their very own WoodWideWeb for inter-tree communication. Amazingly, trees have been creating their own network for millions of years. You could even say their ability to communicate through the ‘phytoncides’, which are the plant chemicals emitted from the trees, mean they invented their own form of WiFi many thousands of years before we caught up. Through these networks and signals, they share nutrition and even warn each other of incoming predators.

    To build on the mindfulness exercises described in Part 1 of this Blog, here are some ideas to ‘plug in’ and connect better with nature and the woodwide web:

    • If It’s raining, relish in the cool sensation of the rain on your skin, taste the raindrops on your lips. Let the rain wash away stale emotions that aren’t serving you anymore. If it’s a cold windy day, whisper your troubles into the wind and watch them blow away.

    • See what smells you notice in the countryside. Wet soil can be very pungent, and a recent shower brings out the smell of nettles and hedgerows as well as aromatic herbs.

    • Next time you’re out and about, find a deciduous tree (these lose their leaves in the winter). Look up at the branches and see how many leaves, if any, are still clinging on. Marvel at the splendour of nature which allows the autumn leaves to absorb unwanted substances the tree needs to release therefore detoxing the tree as it departs.

    • Try standing next to your tree and touching its trunk with the palm of your hand. Concentrate on the texture of the bark, run your fingers slowly over the bumps and notice the contrast with the smoother areas. Imagine how it would feel to have such a solid exterior. See if you can sense how it would feel to have squirrels running up and down – pleasant and tickly or strange and scratchy.

    • Trees are constantly sending water and nutrients up and down inside of their trunks. See if you can sense any movement within it, are you able to ‘will’ yourself to visualise it?

    • Imagine what it would be like to be a tree, swaying in the breeze, but with a solid foundation. Try and picture how far the roots spread out underground. If you walk away from the tree can you sense when they end beneath your feet?

    As you practice these skills regularly over time, you will find you become much more observant and you will start to feel intimately connected to nature rather than a by-stander.

    Recognising galactic portals

    Earlier in 2020, we experienced a number of these galactic portals linked to numerologically significant dates, planetary alignments or co-ordinated global healing events. Adding up the digits of the year gives us a numerological frequency for the year, this 2020 is s ‘4’ year. The 4th April (April being the 4th month), as well as the 13th (adding the digits, 1+3 =4) and the 22nd (2+2 =4) this year, carried the triple frequency of the number four giving us a 4:4:4 in numerology.

    According to spiritual leader Drunvalo Melchizedek, the fourth month of this year was a true demonstration of the qualities of the 4; Earth, structure, form, sharp unforgiving angles, rigidity, mastery, organisation, patience, strengthening of endurance, building solid foundations and practical protection. The '4' energy of April echoed the '4' energy of the year, both the higher aspects (20+20 adds up to 40 which reduces to 4) and the lower ones (2+0+2+0=4). Whenever an energy is repeated it is enhanced - the outcome of which can be observed in the current World situation.

    In the UK, lockdown commenced 23rd March, so April was really the start of all the challenges for many.

    Rethinking our relationship with numbers

    Until this year, most people saw 2020 as a positive. We use 2020 vision to denote perfection. It’s hard to imagine that what is playing out in the world right now is perfection. However, maybe it has given us an accurate vision of humanity, so we can change.

    If we can use the prediction of 444 as the building of solid foundations, this is more encouraging.

    In numerology within the healing community, 4 also represents the heart chakra, linking to love & creation.

    444 indicates a higher spiritual purpose, and enhances energies that are currently around you. When
    the energy of a number is echoed,  these  energies  are boosted.  In  angelology  444  represents  the
    opening of 
    the higher (sacred) heart to unconditional love and creation linked to the colour magenta.

    Building on solid, heart centred foundations

    How can we build on all this? I’ve long had a vision of an active network of caring spiritual individuals with a global mission, working together to promote love, light and harmony via virtual networks until we can meet again physically in sacred site locations and/or ancient forest.

    Perhaps you would like to co-ordinate such a group in your area?

    This was the drive for creating the Harmony Healing Mystery School. By definition, a Mystery School is a collective of ‘initiates’ who have dedicated themselves to protecting, preserving and perpetuating the mystery teachings. These teachings supply the keys to living an enlightened, enriched, and empowered life.

    Throughout antiquity, Mystery Schools have hidden in plain sight, for those who seek. The initiates are Lightworkers who have been called to disseminate these teachings. They are also known as the Guardians, the Protectors, the Light bearers, the Teachers, the Healers, the Record Keepers, the Magicians, and the Watchers, among many other names.
    The ancient and modern, for balance and harmony

    This year, I’ve expanded my view with a modern twist. As a mirror to my practices, in which use I apply ancient wisdom for modern living, we can use modern technology to bring people together to tap into that ancient wisdom collectively.

    Modern technology enables us to bring people together from anywhere in the world. Online platforms mean that we can auto-record our tutorials, so absentees can catch up on missed sessions or they can be re-watched. Once we’ve connected online, we can re-connect with each other offline. In this new reality since lockdown, I carry out my attunements virtually for all my students. I have had some wonderful testimonials, and they have had some profound experiences. Whilst I undertake group attunements in one sitting, students learn how they can pick theirs up at any time to suit them, from wherever they are.

    We can apply these distant principles when working together in the future - when we are more able to move freely again. Perhaps I can be tuning in from an ancient site in the UK, while one of my students tunes in from their closest ancient site, far away on the other side of the world. The possibilities are many, and the future could be a truly better place for that.

    In total harmony with Joanna's own principles, THE VICKYSOUL ACADEMY is designed to nurture this; an holistic education to support a core of dedicated Lightworkers who will become like a family, working (and when allowed again, travelling) together to unfold energies from sacred locations and connect to far distant memories; exchanging keys and codes between participants and the energetic nodes of the divine landscapes, opening portals of information within.Synchronicities are common; we have found ourselves performing ancient ceremonies with tribal elders in Egypt, as well as numerous unexpected treasures presented throughout every journey.

    555 for Spiritual expansion

    We have another exciting energy portal occurring next year; with 2021 being a ‘5’ year, the 5th May (5th Month) will be a 555, where the digits of day, month and year each add up to 5.

    In numerology five represents Spiritual Expansion, with the five-pointed star - or Microcosm - representing man's struggle towards spiritual enlightenment.
    May is also the month of many celebrations, starting with Beltane, associated with fun lively festivals providing joy and laughter, we have an essential ingredient for spiritual growth. This is an exciting prospect in store for lightworkers and we are already working on our 555 meditation.

    Forthcoming Programmes

    In the meantime, please join my monthly Full Moon Virtual Healing Circles (£11), 7.30-9.30pm on the night of the Full Moon (next one is Tuesday 29th December) where we jointly work though a mindful chakra healing programme, using colours and crystal energy, then connect above and below to the earth via the WoodWideWeb and the Sky via the heavenly bodies and constellations for a taste of Unity Consciousness and to add our lightworker efforts to the global healing needed for a bright future for us all.

    For those wanting a deeper experience and to further connect with nature through the moon, I am running New Year New Vision mentoring programme 13th January to 11th February. This runs for a total lunar cycle from the first to the second New Moon of 2021 (11th February heralds in the Chinese New Year of the Ox) to connect with the different moon phases and 28 Mansions of the Moon via the individual angels of each Mansion. Cost is £111 and is for a maximum of 11 participants.

    In February and March, we have new units of the Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing introductory modules. These comprise the Violet Flame of Amenti, Khemitology(Egyptology according to the indigenous tribal elders), Essene Angelology and Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness.

    2021 will bring in the Energy of Expansion

    On 21st December, 18 of us undertook a group Solstice Meditation to connect with the energy of the Solstice - a time when we move into longer daylight here in the northern hemisphere - and to celebrate the coming together of Saturn (harmony, balance & serenity, Angelic Guardian is Cassiel) and Jupiter (abundance, wisdom & kindness, Angelic guardian is Zadkiel) in our skies at the moment but came closest at 6-7pm GMT on the Solstice itself. This was the closest Jupiter-Saturn alignment since July 1623, but his conjunction was almost impossible to see,because of its proximity to the sun.

    The last plain view close pairing of these two planets was in March 1226 - around the time Genghis Khan was conquering Asia!

    Monday’s conjunction was the closest visible pairing since then. Sadly visibilty where I am in the UK wasn't favourable.

    Many of those in our meditation circle had visions, and one saw a giant womb birthing a new era and another saw a beautiful white ocean stretching out to infinity.

    One thing is for certain, for humanity as a whole, 2021 will surely be a step forward and I am looking forward to the expansion to our collective consciousness that the numerology promises.

  • Celestial Forecast for August is ready ...

    July Celestial Forecast Image

    August in Britain is school summer holidays. Time for summer camping and outdoor festivals and, our Summer Bank Holiday, this year on Monday 30th August, with typically lots of rain.  As someone with a late August birthday I can testify to rain being very common indeed.

    The month of August was renamed by Augustus Caesar, after himself. Under Roman rule it was previous called Sextilllia, meaning the 6th month in Latin. When the Gregorian calendar was established by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582, January became the opening month of the calendar year. To the Anglo-Saxons, August was called Ƿēodmōnaþ meaning ‘weed (or grass) month’.

    During August, we have Khemitian (Ancient Egyptian) New Year on 1st - which is also Pagan Lunasa/Lammas, Lion’s Gate (8th) and the Perseid Meteors (9th - 17th August, peaking 11th/12th). Ths year (postponed from last year) we will have the final week of the Tokyo Olympics at the start of the month. We can also look forward to three other annual Egyptian Festivals plus a selection of Chinese, Buddhist and Hindu Festivals as well as a Roman annual commemoration. We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on the 8th, 12th, 13th & 15th.  The Full Moon takes place on Sunday 22nd, with the Sturgeon Moon peaking at 13.02 – there’s no Full Moon Meditation this month.

    See my August Celestial Forecastfor full details.

  • Celestial Forecast for July 2022 is ready ...

    July Celestial Forecast Image

    July is the height of British summertime. Time for the orchids, delphiniums, dahlias, hydrangeas, irises and sunflowers to bloom, and the lingering perfumed scent of lavender, roses, honeysuckle, gardenias and jasmine on the night air. Traditionally, here in the UK, July features the Wimbledon Championship tennis finals and Henley Regatta.  

    The month of July was renamed to honour Julius Caesar, 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 Canada Day (1st) plus 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, initially 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 (1st August being their New Year). Egypt was formerly known asKhem in times of antiquity. Througout these auspicious dates in the Ancient Egyptian calendar, Katie and I will be at the Sun & Moon Festival (Merrist Wood, Guildford), where we will be offering a selection of workshops and three Forest Bathing Taster Sessions. We have full Surrey Forest Bathing events on Thursday 7th July at Cannon Hill (London SW20)Sunday 10th at Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary(near Shere, Surrey) and the Kosmon Sanctuary (Tadworth, near Epsom, Surrey) on Tuesday 12th July. The Full Moon Guided Healing Meditation is taking place on Wednesday 13th, the night of the Thunder Moon (reaches its peak at 19:38).

  • Celestial Forecast for June 2022 is ready ...

    June Celestial Forecast Image

    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.  Seasons are topsy turvey with the elderflower, usually a May blossom, in full bloom as June begins. After two crazy years, 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 linked with marriage. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called sera monath (dry month), which is not necessarily our modern-day experience.

    Excitingly, this year, we have three lots of 666 numerology on the 6th, 15th & 24th June, see below for details. Also during June, as well as the Summer Solstice (21st) and our own traditional British Festivals including Midsummer's Eve (24th), we have a couple of international events – World Environment Day (3rd), World Ocean Day (8th) and Asteroid Day (30th). We can look forward to a sprinkling of Chinese (3rd), Egyptian (16th and 20th) and Roman (24th) celebrations plus the Bootid Meteor Shower (peaking 27th). We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on 25th with Full Moon on the 14th, there's no live Full Moon Meditation this month but a recorded one will be available to purchase.

  • Forest Bathing Update 2022, Issue 1 - The Awakening Forest

    Shaft of Light in the Winter Woodland

    What an incredible week, with storm after storm, leaving a trail of disaster in roads and woodlands all over the UK. As I type this, we still have heavy gusts from Storm Franklyn and it's become a common site to see fallen trees, sadly cut and piled up by the side of the road.

    As March approaches, we can look forward to extended daylight and the awakening of the forest with new growth at ground level as well as on the trees. And even where trees have fallen this last week, it will be amazing to observe the speed with which new saplings wll appear to fill the spaces.

    Our friend and fellow Forest Bathing Guide, Lisa Duncan, has written an excellent guest journal entry on Forest Bathing for a wonderful UK based organisation called the Naked Pharmacy who offer amazing natural remedies made to pharmaceutical specifications. To read it, head over to the Naked Pharmacy Blog.

  • Forest Bathing Update 2022, Issue 2 - Spring Equinox & International Day of Forests

    Shaft of Light in the Winter Woodland

    The month of March was named after the Roman God of War, Mars. The Roman Calendar originally strated in March. To the Anglo-Saxons, March was called 'Hrēðmonath', named after a pagan fertility Goddess called 'Hreða' (also known as Rheda).

    On 20th March, we have the Spring Equinox at 15:32. On the Equinox, light and dark are equal over the whole world: mark the moment of the Equinox with silence and stillness. Representing balance of opposites; it's a good time to bring balance into your life. 

    On 21st March, we have the International Day of Forests, and to mark this occasion we are offering a Tree Connection Workshop, featuring a 2-hour Forest Bathing session, plus an indoor workshop featuring some of our local trees and how to connect further via teas, tree essences and essential oils. See below for details.

    We have North Surrey & London Forest Bathing events scheduled this month on the 16th (Cannon Hill Common, London SW20), 20th (Harry Edwards, Shere, Surrey), 21st (International Day of Forests Tree Connection Workshop, Shere, Surrey) and 31st March (Horsell Common, Woking, Surrey). See below for more about each event.

  • Forest Bathing Update 2022, Issue 3 - Easter & Bluebells

    Shaft of Light in the Winter Woodland

    As we progress into April, a theme emerges which venerates spring, renewal and fertility as well as nourishment. Known for April Fool’s Day and April Showers, the month often hosts Easter, as it does this year. In the forest, we start to see (and smell) the beautiful bluebells, a marker of ancient woodland, which reach their full splendour in May. 

    The month of April was supposedly named after the Roman Goddess Venus (leading to Her Veneralia festival on 1st April), originally named Aphrilis after her equivalent Greek Goddess Aphrodite (Aphros) or the Etruscan version Apru. To the Anglo-Saxons, April was called Easter-mōnaþ "Easter Month", "Month of the Goddess Ēostre".  No prizes for guessing which Christian Festival took its name from this annual festival.

    We're taking a break for Easter, so this month we only have one public forest bathing session, £35, 11-2, on the 24th April (Harry Edwards, Shere, Surrey), where we may be lucky to encounter some early bluebells of which there are thousands here; this lovely venue becomes stunning when they are in bloom.

    I am delighted to announce that the talented Vanessa Potter has completed Series 3 of her Finding Your Right Mind Podcasts all about ParkBathe: Nature's de-stress revolution. The series highlights the benefits of immersing ourselves in woodland and features interviews with many experts on Forest Bathing, including Joanna.

    Next month, we have Mental Health Awarenesss week 9th-15th May, when we will offer two public sessions on Monday 9th, 11-1.30, £35, at Cannon Hill Common (London SW20) and on Sunday 15th we are offering our first full-day themed on nature angels at Harry Edwards, Shere.  The morning is an indoor nature angel workshop (£50) and the afternoon is a nature angel themed bluebell forest bathing session in the private grounds (£40), or special all-day price of £77.

    For those wanting a mainstream Bluebell Forest Bathing Session (without the Nature Angel theme) at Harry Edwards, we have one, 11-2 on Sunday 22nd May, £35.

    Also during Mental Health Awareness Week, we are launching a 6-week Forest Bathing series for the local branch of the mental health charity Mind, with Katie and myself as the guides. This has been co-ordinated by The Forest Bathing Institute (TFBI) who have worked tirelessly to introduce Forest bathing as an acceptable evidence-based therapy to the NHS and the charity sector. A similar 6-week series has already started for another charity, guided my one of our colleagues. The launch of these charity programmes is a momentous development.

    We can hire our venues at Cannon Hill Common (SW20), Horsell Common (Woking GU21) and Harry Edwards (Surrey Hills near Shere) for forest bathing use for private groups, enquire for details. See below for more about our public events

    Surrey/London Forest Bathing Events

    Through a selection of simple sensory activities, you will learn how to enhance your perceptions and slow down to focus on what could easily be missed. We end with a treelaxtion;  a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience, and which, despite the title forest bathing, does not involve any swimming!

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

    Our  sessions take place in all weathers except 25+mph winds or electrical storms. 

    ? ☕When we have the right clothing and footwear, usually plenty of layers, and a spare, we can happily stay outdoors for hours. Even longer if we take a hot drink and a snack!

  • Forest Bathing Update 2022, Issue 4 - May Celebrations + Mental Health Awareness week

    square insta bluebell at HE 22MayMay is a month when our Pagan heritage breaks through into parochial folklore.

    May Day, also known as Beltane, is a Pagan Festival still celebrated in parishes across the country featuring elaborate traditions involving May Poles, floral-dressed girls bedecked with flower garlands, Morris Dancers, Green Man imagery, hobby horses etc.

    We usher in the promise of sunshine and summer as we welcome green shoots and abundant blossom everywhere, not least the Mayflower (Hawthorn) associated with the old adage, ne'er cast a clout till May be out (which I always assumed meant the month itself)...

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

    Mental health awareness week 2022This month we have Mental Health Awarenesss week 9th-15th May, when we will offer two public sessions on Monday 9th, 11-1.30, £35, at Cannon Hill Common (London SW20) and on Sunday 15th we are offering our first full-day themed on nature angels at Harry Edwards, Shere.
