  • Wednesday 13th January, New Moon @ 05:01 & Start of New Year New Vision Mentoring Programme

    Wednesday 13th January is the New Moon @ 05:01. Moon image by Harmony Healing from Canva. Joanna's New Year New Visiona moon connection mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2021, starts today.  It's not too late to join. Curious to know more? See our discussion video or see the details below. Cost is £111.

    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 2021.  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.

    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 and New Year New Vision is a lunar connection programme starting tonight, on the first New Moon of 2021.

    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). We create a 2021 Vision Board throughout the month. Cost is £111, 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). 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.

  • Wednesday 13th July @ 19:38 is Thunder Full Moon & Supermoon plus Angelic Meditation

    24 July Thunder Full Moon

    Wednesday 13th July is Thunder Full Moon @ 19:38. Our Full Moon Meditation this month is Wednesday 13th July, 7.30-9.30pm UK time (GMT+1). This online guided meditation features personal & global healing and ends with an indigenous unity consciousness protocol. Cost to participate is £20, book here.

    This Full Moon is the third of four consecutive Supermoons, and the closest encounter for 2022 having travelled to within 222,089 miles (357,418 km) of Earth earlier today. A Supermoon or Super Full Moon are names used when a Full Moon takes place at a time when the Moon is near its closest approach to Earth. See timeanddate.

    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!

    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 McGerr's Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel. from her A Harmony of Angels Book, which is out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining and personally signed 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 Native American tribes who named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. This is the Thunder Moon, so called due to the prevalence of summer thunder storms. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Other tribes knew it as the Full Buck Moon, to reflect the time of year that a buck's antlers would be fully frown. Some American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this)

    Although the Celts were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings,The Druids, venerated all nature and to them this is the Holly Moon,an evergreen which reminds us of the immortality of nature. This Full Moon was also known by the Celts as the Tinne,pronounced chihnn-uh';they saw hollyas a potent symbol of masculinity and firmness. Weapons were often constructed from its wood but it was also revered for its protective magic. A sprig of holly can be hung in the home, or used as a charm, for safety and good luck. Holly water was created by soaking leaves overnight in spring water under a full moon, then used for protective blessing. I wonder if it was the origin of 'holy water'?  See thoughtco.com.

    Other names for a Full Moon in July are: Rose Moon, Thunder Moon, Hay Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Wolf Moon, Old Moon, Ice Moon (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Full Moon could also be called the Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Fruit Moon or Harvest (after the Summer Solstice i.e. Northern Hemisphere) or Old Moon, Moon After Yule, Snow Moon, Hunger Moon, Wolf Moon, Sap Moon, Crow Moon, Lenten  Moon (after the Winter Solstice i.e. Southern Hemisphere). Source = earthsky.org.

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

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing balance and wellbeing into our lives.

    For full immersion with moon energy join one of our New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment ProgrammesOur next New Moon New Vision lunar cycle alignment programme will run 25th October - 23rd November and costs £155.

    24 July Guru PurnimaWednesday 13th 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 dayWednesday 13th 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. 

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

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing. If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we hold monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditations.During this session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness.

  • Wednesday 14th February, Ash Wednesday in Christian Tradition

    Ash Wednesday 17thWednesday 14th February,this year, as well as being Valentine's Day, is also Ash Wednesday; generally said to have been named after the tradition of burning away old issues in preparation for Lent. 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).

    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.

    Similarly, Ash Wednesday, although observed as a Christian Festival probably originated as a Pagan Festival and could have obtained its name from an apparent tradition of placing a stick of Ash down one's sock for good luck!  

    Ouch, I can't see that being popular, but then maybe choice of a suitable stick is paramount.

    Ash Wednesday certainly isn't mentioned in the Bible, although in Biblical times, sprinkling oneself with dust and ashes was part of a Indian Vedic tradition as a mark of repentance, and repentance rituals were generally often accompanied with fasting. Furthermore, the German Pagans had a tradition of putting ashes over their brows to secure protection of the Norse God Odin (one of Odin's names in Norse is Ygg, which also means ash). Wednesday was Odin's day (our weekday name is directly derived from 'Odinsday'), making the naming of Ash Wednesday particularly pertinent.

    Ash Wednesday was also only accepted into Catholic Church beliefs at the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD when the council also 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.complant-lorecom websites for references.

    By partaking in Ash Wednesday and living a modest life throughout the period of Lent, Christian's believed that it would enhance their harmony and wellbeing.

  • Wednesday 14th February, Valentine's Day

    valentine heartWednesday 14th February - is Valentine's Day and is all about love and compassion, which includes Universal Love for all other living things and also Self-love which is so often overlooked. 

    Some bitterly refer to it as Singles Awareness Day and blame card manufacturers and our materialistic society for love being ritualistically forced upon us every year at this time. However, although it may have the fee of a mordern folk tradition, the first Valentine's Day was celebrated in AD 496 and it's celebtated in a number of other countries as well as the UK.

    However, although the story of 'Saint' Valentine long precedes Hallmark et al, the origins are somewhat blurred as there are historical references to the existence of several different Valentines. Folklore indicates that Valentine was a priest during the third century in Rome. Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage as he believed that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families. Valentine, however, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages in secret. Claudius found out and Valentine was imprisoned, where one version of the legend indicates he befriended a jailer with a blind daughter and he may have somehow managed to restore her sight, resulting in the jailer converting to Christianity. Claudius ordered that Valentine be executed on February 14th and allegedly before his death sentence was carried out, he sent a note to the jailer's daughter and signed it, "From Your Valentine." Hence Valentine's Day is celebrated in his memory. 

    However, his death day and his association with lovers and notes may have been convenient for Roman Christians looking for ways to blend existing Pagan/Roman celebrations into their Calendar. Many believe it replaced Lupercalia (15th February); a pre-existing Roman Festival where men dressed up as wolves and roamed the streets looking for partners. More on this tomorrow...

    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.

  • Wednesday 16th August @ 10:38 is New Moon & Micromoon

    8th August New MoonWednesday 16th August@ 10:38  is New Moon and it's a Micromoon.

    When a Full Moon (or a New Moon) coincides with the point in the Moon's orbit most distant from Earth (apogee) it called a Micromoon.

    Because of the Moon's elliptical orbit around the Earth, one side of the path is closer to the Earth than the other.

    The point in the Moon's orbit farthest from Earth is known as apogee, and the point closest to Earth is called perigee. The average distance between the Moon and Earth is 237,700 miles or 382,500 kilometers.

    When a Full Moon (or a New Moon) occurs around apogee, it's called a Micromoon, Minimoon or Apogee Moon. It will appear smaller tham a usual Full Moon and up to 14% smaller than a Supermoon when the Full Mooin coincides with the perigee. Since we still have the Quadrantid Meteors in the sky, slightly less light pollution will be helpful for stargazers. 

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

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

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

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

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

  • Wednesday 17th March, St Patrick's Day & Roman Festival of Liberalia

    St Patricks Day used 2021Wednesday 17th March is St Patrick’s Day in Eire (Ireland). 

    St Patrick is credited with converting the Irish back to Christianity which had been abandoned under Roman rule.

    Saint Patrick is said to have used the Shamrock (three leaved clover) as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity.

    Apparently, the name shamrock comes from the Irish word seamróg, which is derived from the Irish word for clover (seamair) and means simply "little clover" or "young clover". 

    Our Irish Shamrock was created by Antonia Skelton for Harmony Healing.

    Liberalia 17 MarchWednesday 17th March was also Liberalia, the Ancient Roman Festival to celebrate the male coming of age! 

    In view of the statement above that Christianity had been abandoned under Roman rule, I wonder if there is a connection that when Eire re-converted to Christianity they chose the day of the male coming of age as their date of celebration...

    Liberalia was the Roman Feast of Liber Pater (God of wine and fertility, especially seeds) and his consort Libera, and was held three days after the Ides of March (15th).

    The day was celebrated with ribald songs, processions of priests and elder priestesses - adorned with Ivy - and sacrifices, with masks being hung on trees.

    Young Roman boys were given a lucky charm by their parents called a bulla praetexta, generally made of gold or leather, which was hung around their necks to ward off evil spirits. 

    When boys reached puberty (usually aged 14-16) this amulet would be removed and often placed on an altar dedicated to the Lares(Deities protecting the household and family), together with either a lock of the boy's hair or stubble from his first shave. Subsequently mothers' would retrieve them and keep them safe out of superstition, and they would be used for protection if the son was ever in public office or in a role involving any danger.

    Later in the ceremony the rites of passage would continue with the fathers' taking their sons to the Forum to be presented as adult citizens, now with full adult rites including eligibilty to vote (if he met the statutory requirements of the time) and the authority to wear the pure white adult toga, as well as to marry.  

    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. 

    Two new interactive mentoring courses series started this month with Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness on Tuesday evenings on 11th March and Essene Angelology on Thursday evenings commencing 16th March. These modules are £66 each, late starts accommodated.

    If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the nextvirtual healing circle later this month  on  Sunday 28th March, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT), and costs £20 (+ £2 Paypal fee). During this session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness. This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme.

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

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

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

  • Wednesday 20th March, Equinox & Egyptian Festival of Pelusia

    Pagan EquinoxWednesday 20th March is Spring Equinox at 03:06. 

    The Equinox is a time when light and dark are equal over the whole world. It's good to mark the moment with silence and stillness. 

    On this day the sun rises exactly at due East and sets at due West. 

    This fact makes it a good day for finding due east and due west from your favourite site for watching the night sky.

    Simply go outside around sunset or sunrise and notice the exact location of the sun on the horizon with respect to familiar landmarks. See Earthsky Websitefor more.

    In the UK and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox, in the Southern Hemisphere it's the Autumn Equinox. 

    Representing balance of opposites, symbolically it's a great time to bring harmony and balance into your life.

    Here is Joanna's Equinox/Pelusia video, featuring the below Equinox Meditation with Phuel, which has been uploaded to YouTube:

     
    It's been on Facebook since the live recording a few years ago - when the Equinox was also on 20th March coinciding with Pelusia.

    PhuelHere is an Angela McGerr Angelic Meditation with Barakiel (the ruler of Pisces) and Phuel (guardian angel of water) which could be conducted for the Equinox 

    The Zodiac Sign of Pisces is ruled by Neptune and is of course a Water Sign. 

    This Equinox day (final day of the Sign) gives you an opportunity to use the healing powers of Barakiel, Ruler of Pisces, and Phuel, Angel Ruler of Neptune, who is also Lord of Waters and Powers of the Moon.

    See image of Phuel (right) by Richard Rockwood, taken from Angela's Harmony Angel Cards, last few copies available from our Harmony Shop (as it's now out of print).

    Try this exercise with these two mighty Angels. Use it to heal, wash away emotional turbulence and hurt, for heart and thymus to re-expand. 

    • You could do this exercise while in the bath, or just swimming, or if this is impossible just use your imagination.
    • Sit quietly and focus your attention within, thinking about your desire to calm your emotions.  Say Barakiel’s and Phuel's names three times to invite them in.
    • If you have an aquamarine (one of Phuel's crystals), hold this in your left hand and it will be programmed with healing during this exercise.
    • Start taking deep breaths of blue green energy, breathing them right down through your body.
    • Imagine you are walking in a beautiful place of nature.
    • Presently you come to a pool of crystal clear water, reflecting a blue sky.
    • Know that with the power of water energy your spirit can go down into this water to be healed and washed clean of emotional turbulence.
    • Imagine that you can step into the water and float in it. 
    • If you wish to you can merge for a short time with the water itself, becoming the medium that nourishes fish and other water creatures.
    • The water is very still, silken in texture and peaceful.
    • The sun shines into its depths, lighting the grains of sand at the bottom.
    • Let go of your cares; they are washed away by the healing power of water.
    • When you feel relaxed, come out of the water (real or imaginary)
    • Ask Phuel to seal in your emotional healing, and seal your crystal with silver and aquamarine rays; remember to thank him and Barakiel for their assistance.

    By keeping aligned with the movements of our planet, communities retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance into their lives. Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives. For full immersion with Moon energy join one of our New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment Programmes.

    Isis JTEM20th March is also Egyptian Festival of Pelusia, with the Egyptian Goddess Isis (Aset) working her spring magic to ensure the flooding of the Nile later in the year, thereby guaranteeing a fruitful harvest. See Joanna's live Facebook Pelusia/Facebook video.

    Image of Isis (left), was created for Harmony Healing by Antonia Skelton. We do have wonderfully informative Egyptian Deity Posters, by Jacqui Taliesin El Masry, available for sale from the Harmony Shop.

    According to findwords.info (no longer active) in the Roman Empire, the Pelusia was a religious festival held on the 20th March to honour Isis (known as Aset to the indigenous Egyptians) and her child Harpocrates (known to the Egyptians as Heru and later called Horus by the Greeks). It would have coincided with the second day of the Quinquatria, the five-day festival dedicated to Minerva(see Blog entry for 19th March). It's not known when the tradition started because the holiday was not featured in the Roman calendar by 100 AD, but had been added by the reign of Marcus Aurelius (161–180 AD). 

    In the 6th Century AD, John Lydus, the Byzantine scholar, describes the festival as commemorating the mud (we would now know as the alluvial plain) caused from the flooding of the Nile. This ends hunger and drought and generates fertility.  It was thought to be represented by the birth of Harpocrates (Deity of silence, secrets and confidentiality), who in Roman art is depicted emerging from mud bearing a Cornucopia.

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

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

    By keeping traditions, communities retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their 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 1Sessions are fully recorded so that registrations are possible at any time.

  • Wednesday 25th January, Burns Night in Scotland

    Burns Night 25 JanuaryWednesday 25th January is Burns Night in Scotland. 

    Burns Night is a revered date in the Scottish calendar and celebrates, on the anniversary of his birthday, the life and works of their national Bard, Robert Burns. 

    Born a little over 250 years ago; some consider his best known poem as ‘Auld Lang Syne’, though others believe he did not write it himself, but was the first person credited with writing it down for posterity as part of his attempt to preserve Scottish traditional songs.

    The evening centres on the entrance of the haggis (a type of sausage made from a sheep's stomach) on a large platter to the sound of ceremonial bagpipes.

    When the haggis is on the table, the host reads the "Address to a Haggis". This is an ode that Robert Burns wrote to the Scottish delicacy!

    At the end of the reading, the haggis is ceremonially sliced into two pieces and the meal begins.

    Amongst other works, Burns also write the famous 'Ode to a Louse':

    O wad some Pow'r the giftie gie us

    To see oursels as ithers see us!

    It wad frae mony a blunder free us,

    An' foolish notion:

    What airs in dress an' gait wad lea'e us,

    An' ev'n devotion!

    This is generally translated into modern language as:

    And would some Power give us the gift

    To see ourselves as others see us!

    It would from many a blunder free us,

    And foolish notion:

    What airs in dress and gait would leave us,

    And even devotion!

    The same date, 25th January, is St Dwynwen’s Day (sometimes known as Dwyn or Donwen) in Wales. St Dwynwen is the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine, being their patron saint of love.

    The Scottish, through their reverence of Robbie Burns and the Welsh, through their reverence of St Dwynwen, bring balance and wellbeing into their lives.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing, to bring balance and harmony. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 -our next interactive training module is Violet Flame of Amenti starting on Thursday 23rd February.

  • Wednesday 29th June @ 03:53 (Tuesday night / Wednesday morning) is the Solstice Micro New Moon

    29th June New MoonWednesday 29th June @ 03:53 (Tuesday night / Wednesday morning) is the Summer Solstice Micro New Moon.

    A Micromoon happens when a New Moon or Full Moon coincides with the apogee; when the Moon's orbit is farthest away from Earth. Because the Moon orbits Earth on an elliptical path, one side of the path is always closer to the Earth than the other. See  timeanddate.com for more about this.

    The energy of this time is great for new projects and manifestation! Follow the link in my bio for abundance rituals and more on my site. 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 fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for 2022. 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. Focussing on what you want to manifest in your life is a really effective way of bringing harmony and balance into your life. 

    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 ProgrammesOur next New Moon New Vision lunar cycle alignment programme will run 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.

  • Wednesday 2nd February, whether written as 2-2-22 or 02-02-2022 lots of 2 numerology

    2 2 22 1Wednesday 2nd February, we have an exciting 2:2:22 energy portal; today's date is numerologically significant as it carries multiple frequencies of the number 2, whether written as 02.02.2022 or 2.2.22.

    We have three days this month where the only (no zero) digit is two: Wednesday 2nd February 2022, Sunday 20th February 2022, Tuesday 22nd February 2022. Some numerologists even include Friday 11th February 2022 in the sequence, as the two 1s in 11 can be added up to a 2.

    This series of dates when the only non-zero digit is 2 started in 2000 and happened again in 2002.  After 2022, it won't happen again until 2222, so not in our lifetimes.

    The first of these dates, is the most gentle, offering an opportunity to work through emotions and express what may have been voluntarily suppressed in the throat (or deeper in the body) or even release emotions involuntarily repressed due to trauma connected with it.

    In numerology, the number two is said to represent Duality, Division, Polarity, Choice, Gestation, Cooperation, Service, Harmony, Support, Diplomacy, Patience, Psychic Intuition, Partnership, Mediation (seeing both sides of the coin), Comparison, Receptiveness, Helping, Collecting, Reproduction, Balancer of Opposites, Subconscious Memory, Positive and Negative.

    Being a multiple representation of the number two, this February date has an additional meaning in angelic numerology where 222 and beyond (2222 etc.) are about transformation and change. There is a real opportunity towish for global diplomacy.If you seek to transcend, transform, and reach unique levels in your life, these dates are highly auspicious.

    We invite you to participate (wherever you are) in our meditation at 2.22 pm your local time at which time we will be focussing on the spread of harmony, love and diplomacy, with the release of karma based on war and hatred.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing balance and wellbeing into our lives.  My next lunar cycle study course is Friday 1st April - Saturday 30th April.

  • Wednesday 6th January, 12th Night or Epiphany in Christian tradition and Third Quarter Moon

    Lunar Cycle imageWednesday 6th Januaryis Epiphany; the name for Twelfth Night in the Christian Calendar. The day when traditionally the Christmas Tree and other decorations should be removed until the following year. 

    In 2021, it's also the Third Quarter Moon, the final lunar phase before the first New Moon of this New Year, see the post on the Wonderful World of Wellbeing (WWoW) online Facebook Page for an affirmation you can use.

    Epiphany is defined as 'a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God incarnate as Jesus Christ'.

    In the UK, Epiphany has become associated with an “Aha!” moment. As a literary device, epiphany (pronounced ih-pif--uh-nee) describes the moment when a character has a life-changing realisation which alters the direction of that character's belief structure and hence marks a turning point in the plot which influences the rest of the story. These are moments of great philosophical, spiritual, or personal insight. 

    R Staines Malvolio Shakespeare Twelfth NightThe term Twelfth Night has been immortalised by the Shakespeare's play by that name. This image (left) from Shakespeare's play depicts Malvolio  courting a bemused Olivia, while Maria covers her amusement. 

    In Western Christianity, the Epiphany feast commemorates principally (but not solely) the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child, whereas in Eastern Christianity, Epiphany commemorates the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River, seen as his manifestation to the world as the Son of God.

    The traditional date for the feast is 6th January, although some recognise it as the night of 5th January, and since 1970, the celebration is held in some countries on the Sunday following 1st January.

    Popular Epiphany customs included attending church services, chalking the door, having one's house blessed, winter swimming, Epiphany singing. It was traditional to consume Three Kings Cake  or Twelfth Night cake, which would have a pea and a bean hidden within it; perhaps this was a prelude to our tradition of hiding a small coin in the Christmas Pudding. The lady who found the pea would be Lady or Queen of Misrule whereas the man who discovered the bean would be proclaimed Lord or King of Misrule, and roles would be reversed between masters and commoners, possibly explaining Shakespeare’s choice of title for his play although no direct reference is made to this feast within the script itself.

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

    new moon new vision 5Aligning ourselves with the cycles of the moon can also enhance our lives in unexpected ways and help us connect with our intuition for greater clarity in our vision and goals

    In her book The Angel Almanac,my sister Angela McGerr, introduces the concept of Gabriel (Angelic Guardian of the Moon and Mondays) and Ophaniel (Angelic Ruler of the Wheel of the Moon which comprises all 28 Mansions of the Moon and theor respective Angelic Guardians).  Joanna has developed this concept to create a 28-day lunar mentoring programme detailed below. 

    New Year New Vision

    • define your vision for 2021, utilising affirmations, angelic guidance, attunements and daily practice.
    • learn powerful techniques to create your own vision board for 2021, to take with you into the new year and help focus on what you want to manifest in the year to come.
    • benefit from aligning key milestones in your planning with the most powerful phases of the moon, set your intentions for an abundant 2021.

  • What's on this spring: Unity Consciousness, Lunar Cycle alignment course, forest bathing ...

    Spring Equinox 20th 1Last weekend was the Equinox, so at last, Spring is in the air and we can feel optimistic about the summer.

    Things have been very hectic for me having embraced a transition to Zoom virtual format shortly after lockdown a year ago.

    Since last March, there have been continuous enrolments for my RSE (Reyad Sekh Em©) Egyptian Alchemy healing training courses. Especially the Introductory Level although 10 have gone onto become qualified RSE Practitioners and are working towards advanced practitioner training. I couldn't be happier on that front, after almost 23 years in the healing fraternity, the most amazing community of healers and trainee healers has emerged. I dreamt of this but to have it materialise is fantastic.  And the talent amongst them is incredible; if you are looking to develop latent (or extend existing) healing skills, do join us.  Here's two of the recently qualified super capable practitioners telling their stories on You Tube: Benjamin (a hairdresser, aged 21, unable to work during lockdown) and Agata (a practising NHS physiotherapist) tell their stories (less than 15 mins in total). 

    Most important is the desire to run an active team of lightworkers and make a difference in the world, especially considering the desperate global environment.  If you are familiar with the work of David Hawkins and Owen Waters, you will know that working on your own spiritual consciousness is one of the most productive steps we can make as individuals regarding improving global wellbeing. See my short YouTube presentation for more on this. 

    Monthly Full Moon Meditation 

    We hold monthly Full Moon Virtual Guided Meditations, the next ones are Sunday 28th March, Monday 26th April & Wednesday 26th May. Other dates are listed on the Harmony Healing website until the end of the year.  These cost £22 via PayPal (£20 if paid via BACS bank transfer) and act as a great low investment introduction to my work. 

    New Moon New Vision: lunar cycle connection programme

    Very soon, Monday 12th April - Tuesday 11th May, we have our coveted New Moon New Vision; lunar cycle alignment programme re-starting, cost is £155 (+ £7.50 admin fee if paid via PayPal). This was run earlier in the year featuring daily angelic affirmations, weekly meditations and several distant attunements to enhance your energetic connection to the sun, moon, earth, planets and stars plus the current Western and Chinese zodiacs. We simultaneously learn, though 10+ hours of virtual Zoom mentoring, to work with the energies of the moon cycle and each person creates a Vision Board for 2021 & beyond. Multiple participants found it a 'life changing for the better'. More at Harmony Healing Website and a YouTube informational video (about 15 mins) with feedback from three of the group members and here's what another had to say as the last course reached the final week: 

    "As we're almost at the end of the course, but still the beginning of a journey, I thought I'd share a few of the things that have changed for me during this moon cycle.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 

    I have more space within... I can literally feel it - possibly as a result of the Soul Star and Earth Star Chakras attunement, and also because of the releasing that has been happening over the last 2 weeks.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 

    I have recovered a routine which brings about a more productive day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    My brain has tuned into the fact that I need to lose weight... I've let go of snacking, I'm having beautiful detox baths and have done the oil pulling. I am doing daily dance exercises.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I am meditating more and got back on track with daily self-Reiki.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I'm seeing the bigger picture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    I am generally more focused.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    Such positive stuff for everyday living! ♥"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    Forest Bathing+ Sessions in leafy Surrey

    Earlier this week, Monday 21st March was International Day of Forests and I'm delighted to announce that we will be able to offer Forest Bathing+ sessions in Surrey again, starting on 17th April at Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary (Shere) and 22nd April at Newlands Corner (near Guildford).See event dates listed up to July on the Harmony Website, please do join us for one or more of these enjoyable and therapeutic experiences.

    I will also offer another series of RSE (Reyad Sekh Em©) Egyptian Alchemy healing training courses over the summer. Our current course finished yesterday (25th March), so I will wait and see whether they want to progress immediately onto RSE 2 Practitioner which will mean a delay before the next introductory series.

    So that's a summary of what we are offering for the next 3-4 months, if you aren't already and feel inspired to join our active Lightworker Community, think about joining one of the activities above or sign up for the Celestial Forecast Blog email updates.  Subscribers receive reminders of the New Moon, Full Moon, Meteor showers, dates of numerological significance (three '555' dates coming up in May, one of which is included in the New Moon New Vision Course), Pagan, Egyptian, Roman and other religious festivals as well as international celebrations.

    Whatever you do, have a happy spring & summer.

    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.
