  • Monday 4th May, Veneration of the Thorn

    Closeup of blackthorn - Photographer Martin OlssonMonday 4th May is the festival of the Veneration of the Thorn at which the Hawthorn is honoured. This is a festival of modern origin that may have been adapted from the Night of Lunantisidhe on Saturday 16th May, honouring the fairy spirits of blackthorns (Hawthorns are whitethorns).

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

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

    Joanna's Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. 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 shares. We also have meditations available.

    A number of virtual courses are now ready and starting this month, 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.

  • Tuesday 4th May, Veneration of the Thorn

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

    This is a festival of modern origin that may have been adapted from the Night of Lunantisidhe on Sunday 16th May, honouring the fairy spirits of blackthorns (Hawthorns are whitethorns).

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

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

    Tomorrow is huge numerology with a triple 5; being the 5th day of the 5th month of a 5 year (the digits of 2021 add up to 5). Five is about expansion and there will be an enormous shift in human consciousness this month. For more about this, and how you can participate in this spiritual awakening, visit the Blog for 5th May above.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. The next RSE 1 module series starts 14th May with Violet Flame of Amenti and 17th May with Chakra Balancing, Axiatonal Alignment and Unity Consciousness.

    If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities following lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the next virtual healing circle later this month on Wednesday 26th May at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT+1), 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.

  • Wednesday 5th May, first of three dates with 555 Numerology

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

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

    What is Numerology?
    Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers.

    As well determining aspects of your personality and life purpose from the analysis of your birthdate, together with the encoded numbers in the letters of your name, it is also a science attributing meaning and significance to what could appear as random numbers observed in your environment and/or happening globally. 

    Digits of higher numbers are added together until a single digit is reached. 

    What is the Numerology of the Number 5?
    In numerology, the number 5 can be said to denote adventure, change, motion, travel, freedom, exploration, variety, sensuality, being unattached (to outcomes), curiosity, experience, periodicity, knowledge seeker and teacher, imaginative, child-like and playful. With the highs that come with these attributes, 5s also carry instability and unpredictability, and radical changes.

    The spiritual meaning of 5 draws our attention to the wonder of life, and beckons us to appreciate the perception of chaos all around us. 5 has wild vibrations: primitive and erratic. It is said that when 5 pops into your life, be prepared for some action, like a journey, which can be physical or meditative.  It’s certainly an amazing number on which to meditate. 

    The number 5 is the most dynamic and energetic of all the single-digit numbers. It is unpredictable, always in motion and constantly in need of change. Although it comprises an almost equal mix of masculine and feminine qualities, in general it is slightly more feminine, though certainly not demure or submissive.  In Indian Vedic lore it is ruled by Mercury and denotes intellect. 

    However, the most important meaning of the number 5 is 'Expansion' especially with regard to personal cellular vibration.  5 is the number of harmony, balance and divine grace. 

    Examples of Sets of Five in Every Day Life
    Since nature is comprised of the 5 elements earth, air, fire, water and spirit/ether (or in the Chinese system, earth, fire, water, metal and wood) the number 5 can also be seen as a manifestation of nature itself and even God/the Creator. 

    5 features in human design, we have five identified senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch) and 5 digits at the end of each limb. 

    The 5th dimension is the term used to describe the spiritual plane accessible to psychics, mediums and healers but illusive to the average person in the street. 

    555 23 MayThe Platonic Solids
    There are also 5 platonic solids, identified around 360 BCE by the philosopher Plato hence the name.

    Each solid comprises a three dimensional geometric shape of identically shaped regular polygons each meeting at the same three-dimensional angles. 

    1.Tetrahedron - 4 x equilateral triangle faces and represents the element fire;
    2. Hexahedron (cube) - 6 x square faces and represents the element earth;
    3. Octahedron - 8 x equilateral triangle faces and represents the element air;
    4. Dodecahedron - 12 x pentagonal faces and represents the element spirit;
    5. Icosahedron - 20 x equilateral triangle faces and represents the element water.

    The Ancient Egyptians Thoughts on the Number Five
    The Ancient Egyptians (who called their land ‘Khem’ or ‘Khemit’ so are best described as Khemitians), used the 5-pointed star or ‘microcosm’ to represent man as a miniature replica of God.  Interestingly, the Khemitian name for God was Neter, from which our word nature is probably derived.

    The 5-pointed star was their symbol for destiny as well as the number 5 itself. The ideal of the ‘realised’ man was to become a star; ‘to become one of the company of Ra’ in the sky, 5-pointed stars were the homes of departed souls. 

    The Khemitians also used the 5-pointed star to represent the five stages of the sun during the day and the five stages of life: Dawn was known as Kheper (scarab = birth/rebirth), high noon known as Ra (Inner Child), the afternoon sun was Oon (the Scholar), full afternoon sun Aten (the Wisdom Keeper) and finally at dusk Amen (the hidden or veil). 

    Herodotus wrote, around the 5th Century BC: Of all the nations of the world, the Khemitians are the happiest, healthiest and most religious. 

    This was attributed to their holistic view of man as a function of the Cosmos; they saw it as essential to be in tune with metaphysical realities in their daily lives.  The complex vibrations of the body were a reflection of the rhythms, harmonies and pulsations of the universe.  When out of tune, the body would display disease.  To heal a person, it was necessary to use magic to summon the healing harmonic phenomena. 

    The Khemitians believed that man was created in the image of God and embodied all living creatures.  All aspects of nature, such as colours, crystals, animals, plants etc. had counterparts within man.  Man’s body was his temple; and the rite of self-perfection was his soul purpose and ultimate destiny. 

    They also understood that if man was a microcosm of the universe, then all aspects of man would manifest on a magnified scale within the universe; in other words the universe was a macrocosm of man.  The Emerald Tablets, attributed to Djetuti (also called Tehuti, Thoth, Hermes and Mercury at various historical junctures, with the Greek version Hermes Trismegistus giving us the term Hermetic Philosophies) details how everything we see is a representation of what we don't see - As Above, So Below - with man being a 'Microcosm' or miniature replica of the 'Macrocosm' being the All.  

    Thus we are intimately connected with everything. Our individual actions cause reactions in the macrocosm and activities in the greater universe/stars manifest within us.  Physical functions of body parts were seen as manifestations of cosmic functions and particular attributes with specified planets. 

    There was a strong astrological element too, with medicines being administered at specified times to coincide with astrological influences.  Operations were timed to take advantage of beneficial cosmic rhythms using colours, metals and numbers as manipulative tools.  Hekau (mantras) would be invoked, with music and sound being used to create appropriate vibrational enhancements.  Incantations and chanting created controlled influences on the affected organs.  The correct pronunciation of Hekau or Neteru (the plural of Neter) could oust incompatible energies which were causing discomfort and recalibrate the cellular vibration to a more harmonious setting. 

    The Ancient Greeks Thoughts on the Number Five
    5 was the sacred number of the Pythagoreans and members of the brotherhood were sworn to secrecy on pain of death. 

    Repeated numbers in Numerology
    Double numbers (i.e. 11, 22, 33 etc.) and triple numbers (111, 222, 333 etc.) are called repdigits and this intensifies the meaning.  With 555, we have an additional factor that 555 is both a Sphenic number (a positive integer, the product of three distinct prime numbers) and a Harshad number (divisible by the sum of its digits). 

    Harshad is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘Joy-giver’. 

    555 is said to represent notification that a life changing thought or event has just occurred.  You may or may not like it, but whatever the case, your Spirit Guides are notifying you that a change in your life path direction has just occurred and it is time for you to change too. Move with it, follow these thoughts. 

    Angelic Numerology
    My sister, Angela McGerr, refers to Angel Numerology.  In her system, she describes 5 as the number of raising of spiritual consciousness, linked to the five-point star of Microcosm. 55 means you are reaching the next, higher level, while 555 mean you have attained a certain level of Mastery in a healing discipline or Angelic Wisdom, or another esoteric subject, greatly furthering your own Soul Quest. Metatron and Shekinah each have a five-pointed star, equalling ten (perfect number) and the spheres on the Cabbala Tree of Life. When the digits of 555 are added together (5+5+5 = 15 then 1+5 =6) we get 6, which is the macrocosm.  Hence, the numerology of 555, gives us both the bigger picture (6) and smaller detail (5). 5 brings expansion through spiritual growth and 6 brings healing and consolidation of that personal expansion, hence life can be said to be dance of 5 & 6 as this cycle repeats ongoingly.  

    Summary
    This 555 numerology, combines the forces change on the universal level, with micro change on the individual level. The universe is making changes for us whether we ask for them or not. The universe, with permission of our soul, is changing our individual directions. Some of us seek change even when we are not sure what change we want, and others resist change at all costs. But when we set out our dreams and let go of how we expect them to appear, we can allow the energies to take us to new heights. To a future full of possibilities, still hidden, but soon to be revealed. 

    Healing therefore involves the subtle manipulation of the macrocosm, which resulted in a beneficial manifestation within the universal replica, the microcosm, namely the human being.  Man was born mortal but because he contained the seed of the divine, could be heavily influenced by divine intervention.  Life’s purpose was to nourish that seed and move towards a higher state of consciousness, leading to a reunification with the Divine.   

    Author Bruce Lipton, says a human body comprises 50 trillion cells, each meeting the definition of a living organism in as much as they respire, digest, reproduce, excrete and demonstrate sensitivity, growth and movement.  Hence each cell is like a miniature human being.  The current population of the Earth is less than 7.7 billion. In many ways, each of us is like a single cell within the collective humanity. 

    If 50 trillion individual cells can harmonise together as a single community, there must be hope for 7.7 billion to co-ordinate positive thoughts and co-create a better future for our planet.
