Transformation. Evolving. Dissolving resistance at the Full Moon.

ANGELIC REIKI

The new season has brought with it the energy of change and transformation. Something that many of us at experience at our own level.

I’ve found that transformation, growth and evolving will bring with it that sudden rush of excitement, wonder, curiosity, and hopefulness. This is often followed by resistance. Fear. Guilt.

The happy hormones take a break and give your cells some time to catch up with the all the newness that you are conjuring up!

In my own world, I have tended to find this a week where resistance tends to be at it’s strongest under the gaze of the Full Moon.

The Full Moon heightens our emotions. Bringing to the surface all of the things and people that are in opposition to that which we want to experience, especially in relation to the intentions set at the time of the New Moon. So, this has become a time that I have used this time to “go with the flow” as much as I possibly can. Rather than resisting what is coming up, I’ve tried to flow with it and allow it to be released.

So, I know that sometimes is much easier said than done!

This is especially the case when the old ways, old faces and old places resurface. Reminding you of what needs to be released or shifted to support you in aligning with the new.

To support you through this I’ll share my own magical keys for working with the energy of the Full Moon to facilitate transformation and evolving:

TUNE IN
Your body will tell you when it needs to rest. Your intuition will let you know when it’s time to pause or move forward. Your soul team will guide you towards what is for you right now. Tune in. Do so with meditation, prayer, writing or awareness.

PRAYER
A simple prayer focused towards the solution. One of my favourites is:

“Thank you for showing me where to go, what to do and what to say to whom.”

Another of my favourites is: “I surrender.” Two simple words that can lighten the load. An invitation to God and soul team to take the reins.

CONNECTION
Connection to self or like-minded people. Somehow they both tend to lead back to one another. To fill you up and raise your vibration. To bring you back to centre when you fall.

In the Full Moon ebook, I have also included further tools and practices from my own spiritual vanity case.

I will leave you here, yet I truly hope that you will pivot towards releasing (or whatever else you feel you need right now) so that you can stick with your new intentions, desires, and transformation.

If you could do with a little something extra I will share some notes of inspiration here too. I am available for 1:1 support too, just drop me an email here.

Weekly round-up: New Moon + Free Downloads

Well, we are now moving into a New Moon in the sign of Virgo. Which feels to be a time of closure, letting go and endings. Followed by the prospect of a new beginning or phase of your own personal journey. What that looks like will be very much dependent upon where you are on your journey.

Things that are coming up for me are:

Reflection – Being guided back to this time last year and the plans that were made. Questioning are they still relevant and if not, what needs to change?

Routines – Looking at my daily routines and considering what needs to be tweaked or completely overhauled in order to be more in alignment with myself and forward plans.

What is coming up for you?

One thing that I like to do is support others to support themselves so I have been busy creating and revising Ebooks with practices and tools that I have used, as well as continue to use to support myself.

New Moon Time: Step into the real You!

chanelmarie

And what a hell of a new moon this one is.

Over the last few days, I’ve been going through a bit of an energy clearing. Initially, I thought it was a bug due to the sudden change in weather. On remembering the forthcoming New Moon eclipse, I knew this was a purging of energy. An upgrade was on the cards and from the conversations, I have been having it would seem that I am not the only one experiencing the purge.

So, what’s the deal with this new moon?

Intuitively I’m feeling that as much as it’s about calling in the new; which is typical to new moons. It’s also about preparing yourself energetically and mentally for what it is that you want to experience.  Ultimately, it’s about stepping into the real you.

For those of light warriors and hot mess goddesses of light, it’s also about us stepping fully into our light. No more pussyfooting around it’s all or nothing now.

Trust me, I’m getting the universal kick up the bum too. #togetherwerise

In order to step up, you also have to do some clearing out of the old, which can often live you in this space of limbo between the old and new. Thankfully, the New Moon will support us to close that gap by working with it to begin that process of visioning who it is that you want to be!

Obviously, you can think about the things that you want to manifest and experience but this moon is more about YOU! Who you are becoming and who you want to become. In some cases, who you are currently moulding into isn’t necessarily who you desire to be. If that’s the case, it’s as good a time as any to make that change!

How to make the most of it

Be super clear about what it is that you want to experience and call into your life. This isn’t a time for being modest or playing small either. Dream big yet be sure to make it all manageable for yourself, as well as calling in necessary support, to avoid feeling overwhelmed or giving up at the first hurdle.

Cos there will always be hurdles!

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What is feasible to call in, experience and step into over the coming months?
  • Then take it long term: What do you want to experience further down the line?
  • What can you do to align with the woman that lives that life?

The key message coming through is: The work you do on yourself is an inside job yet it will resonate on the outside too.

Lately, I’m coming across a few women wanting to make changes to their outer appearance too. Think diets, new clothes and upping their beauty game. If that’s you then you go for it. Don’t let people deceive you into thinking that it’s not important. If it’s important to you and is being guided to up your game:

Go for it! This is all about you stepping into the woman that you were created to be.

Leo energy is bold, proud and doesn’t mind standing out from the crowd. I mean just look at Jlo and Madonna. Both are unafraid to change their image or look their best!

And, it goes without saying that it’s a time to set intentions. With the vibe of Leo being bold, fun, creative, joy and expressive then it’s a no-brainer that your intentions will be to do with what brings you in alignment with all of that!

Ultimately…….

You will find that some doors are closing and others are opening. Will you keep banging on or returning to the door that’s closed or the ones that are opening up? Often to do the latter requires a new You. Will you let the new You emerge?

This New Moon is really all about You! It’s about getting yourself aligned and feeling good from the inside out. So, whatever is falling apart or whoever is drifting away: Let it!

If you need a hand, I am at the end of an email, ready to help you to help yourself! This is your time, pretty lady!

With love
Chanel

Day 4: Crystals + your feminine spirit

One thing I’ve increasingly noticed is the tendency for women to push aside their femininity in order to stay on top of their game at work or simply survive in the workplace. Something that I’ve been guilty of myself. However, as I and many others have learnt, living your life in that way isn’t sustainable. It soon takes its toll on your physically and drains your spirit.

It’s partly due to this that so many women find this burning desire within to quit their jobs or simply find themselves attracted to spirituality, as well as mindful practices.

However, it’s not just the practices and rituals, it’s that opportunity to reconnect with yourself as a woman. Awakening your femininity and embracing all that it means to be the woman that you were created to be.

This full embodiment of the real you is something that many of us strive for, yet do so by focusing on6 all that is outside of ourselves first. Not recognising that it all comes from within first and radiates outwards. Being shown as grace, inner confidence and that illusive glow. Isn’t that what you want to experience and embody?


RECLAIMING YOUR FEMININE SPIRIT

Although all of the crystals we have encountered have touched on aspects of our inner beauty that many of us want to nurture, eg: Self love and confidence. Today’s crystals will focus on reclaiming and fully awakening your femininity.

Moonstone

As it’s name suggests this crystal is aligned with the energy of the moon. So don’t be surprised if you are drawn to Moonstone during your menstrual cycle or at the time of the Full and New Moon. Its also a crystal that connects you to your own femininity, inner goddess and sacred beauty. With many swearing by the benefits of meditating with Moonstone during the time of the Full/New Moon, enhancing your intuition and connection within. What’s more feminine than that?

Garnet

This crystal is perfect for those who are ready to bring their sexy back and unleash their wild spirit. Garnet is a crystal associated with passion and physical love. It also dissolves any blockages in the lower chakras which is where we can often hold onto those feelings and memories that prevent us from fully connecting with ourselves, as well as others.

Labradorite

A stunning stone to look at, Labradorite is considered a ‘magic stone’. A stone that has the ability to re-awaken the magic that lies within you and opens you up to using it in order to manifest, as well as being good luck into your life.


WORKING WITH THE PHASES OF THE MOON

Crystal rituals can be completed at any time, although the Full Moon is particularly potent time to connect with your divine feminine.

This is because the moon is at its fullest and it’s a powerful time to honour all of what your feeling, whilst releasing what is no longer in alignment with the woman you are becoming.

Equally, if you feel drawn, you may want to also work with your divine feminine crystals during a new moon, especially if you wanting to embody new aspects of your personality. Reason being that the new moon is a time of calling in the new and fresh starts.

Incidentally, there is a New Moon next week on June 13th so that’s the perfect time to connect with your feminine crystals.

Energy update: Full Moon in Sagittarius

Beauty isn’t just about how you look on the outside. It’s also about how you feel on the inside too.

And often you find that when you feel amazing on the inside + you’re self-worth is intact, you radiate a glow from the inside out.

This is the vibration that the Full Moon in Sagittarius is inviting you to step into.

What must you release + what must you embrace to make this a reality?

Scorpio ‘Pink’ Full Moon: Heal + Transform

On the 29th/30th of April we have a full ‘pink’ moon in Scorpio. Hailed as a moon that is offering inside out transformation that opens the door to becoming the best version of you and manifesting those seeds of desire that you’ve planted. How can you personally make the most of this energy? Let’s find out as we explore the energy of this Full ‘Pink’ Moon in Scorpio.


A LITTLE BACKGROUND TO THIS FULL MOON

This Full Moon is meant to stir things up. Stirring it up and bringing them out into the open (or, at least for you to see) in order to begin that ripple effect of change + transformation. Something that is very much needed if you are to uplevel, become your best self and live a life that you love. Rather than a life that you pretend to love when you post happy pics on Instagram.

It’s meant to really wake you up to the truth that you’ve been avoiding, ignoring or pushing deep below the surface.

Much of what it’s stirring up are feelings, emotions, thoughts and beliefs related to Yourself. Particularly those that relate to how you show up in the world and in important relationships. Some of these things might include:

  • Jealousy
  • Envy
  • Greed
  • Neediness
  • Fakeness

Being a karmic year 11/2 you’re likely to find that what is coming up for you are things that have been plaguing you for most of your life. Those pesky repetitive patterns, cycles and behaviours that you keep you stuck in victim mode or in your comfort zone.

Are you ready to see + release them?

Yet, on the flip side Scorpio Full Moon energy is sexy and mysterious, as well as deeply intuitive too. All of which are energies that can be put to optimal use at this time, especially when navigating the beautiful world of romantic relationships.

On the other hand, maybe you need to remember how to be more sexy, mysterious in your daily life, whilst using the gift of intuition to feel you way into situations.

Which is it to be for you?

Scorpio Full Moon’s are a time for deep cleansing and healing. A real releasing of the things that stand in opposition of your transformation. Yet, when embraced can have the impact of leading you to the breakthrough and transformation that you’ve been waiting for.


WHY SHOULD I TAKE NOTICE OF THE FULL MOON?

You don’t have to take notice of the Full Moon and many people don’t. Blissfully living their lives unaware of the emotions, feelings and energy that comes up for and around them at this time.

Yet, for those who are willing it’s the optimal time for purging, letting go and forgiveness. All key ingredients for soul growth, personal development, healing and uplevelling in life.

Full Moon’s are like the harvest point of the moon cycle. The point where you can reap the rewards of the seeds of desire and intention that you have planted. Where those crops of desire are not ready to be harvested it becomes a time of reflection, introspection and release. A time when you use the gift of awareness to support you as you go within and identify:

  • What is ready to be released
  • Who you can forgive

This can make it an emotional time, especially for those who are moon sensitive, lightworkers/warriors, psychic, water signs or in the midst of a soul/spiritual awakening. You guys will most likely feel all the feels when the moon is full because the moon governs our emotions.

When the moon is Full it’s bright and it literally shines a light in and on the darkness. This is why you will often find that buried thoughts, feelings, memories and shadow parts of the self are more apparent under the Full Moon. These things become more obvious when our soul is ready for us to release those aspects that are standing in the way of us awakening, progressing or just simply moving on.

How will you respond to what’s coming up for you at this time?


WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

As Jay-Z said you can’t heal what you don’t reveal. The Scorpio Full Moon is doing a lot of revealing so you’re job is to be Aware.

Notice what is coming up for you at this time and over the last few days because this stuff is the dominant energy that you bring to every table that you sit at. It introduces in real time, through text and over social media, even if you haven’t been aware of it. This energy is contributing to and creating your current reality. Leading you to repeat the same patterns with different faces and in different places.

Some key questions to ask yourself might include:

  • What is ready to be released?
  • What isn’t really helping me to manifest what I want?
  • What am I going to do about it?
  • What is helping me to expand, heal and uplevel?
  • What are/is the lessons here?

Incidentally, this energy of release and transformation have been dominant themes in this week’s 5 days of divine messages with the cards over on my Instagram page. You may want to check it out for further insight and guidance.

Also, it helps to have that perspective that life is happening for you not to you. Just sit with that for a moment and notice how empowering that feels.


WHAT TOOLS CAN I USE TO SUPPORT ME?

Your best tool is your own commitment to change, healing and your own personal development. Are you really willing to face the truth? Are you really willing to take the necessary steps towards your own healing and transformation?

Some other tools include:


This gorgeous Full Moon really is here to help you to breakthrough and bring you back to yourself. Yet you have to be prepared to do your part too.

Healing is a process and what this Full Moon is doing is really peeling back the layers of the darkness and dislodging those limiting beliefs and fears. Something which I talk about more here. It’s up to you to decide how best to invest your time + resources to make the most of it.

Remember change starts with you!

Cleansing Toolkit: Sage

Sage and the New Moon

Although, the New Moon is a time for setting new intentions, planning new projects and new beginnings I can definitely say that, in the run-up to this New Moon, I am finding that I have more than my fair share of negative energy to transmute and drive out of my physical, spiritual and emotional body.

From my conversations with other women, it would seem that I am not alone with this, as many of you have been experiencing stress, overwhelm, fatigue and sleepless nights, as the first New Moon of 2018 draws closer. All of this can create a feeling of misalignment and I, for one, try my best not to bring this energy to my altar space when writing or setting my New Moon intentions.

Therefore, in the days leading up to the New Moon or on the evening itself I will clear my own energy using Sage, alongside any other rituals and practices that I am guided to. In doing so, I am putting myself in the position where I am most likely to be infusing my New Moon intentions or wish list with positive energy.


Why Sage?

Sage has long since been my go-to tool for removing unwanted and stale energy that has been building up over time, or simply attached itself to me during the day. It’s also a sacred plant that has been used by many ancient and traditional civilizations who would use Sage in rituals and ceremonies in order to heal and purify energy.

What’s great about Sage is that it can be used to clear energy from yourself and your home, especially if you have moved into a new home and want to give it a deep energetic cleanse. It can also be used to cleanse unwanted energy from objects, such as your crystals or crystal jewellery. Essentially, Sage is the perfect addition to your spiritual beauty toolkit and will support you in nourishing your inner beauty too.


How to use Sage

  1. Hold the Sage stick in your hand and set your intention, eg: To clear away unwanted, negative energy from yourself and your space. Light one end of your Sage stick, allowing it to catch fire and burn for several seconds. Once the flame extinguishes gently blow on the lit end to fan the embers.
  2. Begin by clearing your own auric field. I suggest that you start at the top of your head and go down the front of your body, as if you are cutting through energy cords that have attached themselves to your chakras, and travel down to your feet. Continue by wafting the Sage smoke under your feet, down your arms etc.
  3. Move onto ‘Sage-ing’ your space, beginning at the door and going around the door frame.
  4. Work through the room paying attention to corners and other dark corners which is where energy can get trapped. As you do this visualise or say a mantra that supports you in holding the intention for “clearing out the negative, stale energy and restoring positive balance energy”.
  5. Finally, extinguish the Sage by safely snuffing it out in a fireproof container.

Alternatives to Sage

I love the smell of Sage yet there are times when the smell can be overwhelming so you may want to try these alternative herbs:

  • Palo Santo: aka ‘Holy wood’ – relaxing, cleansing, healing and calming.
  • Frankincense: Connects you with Source energy, ease stress and anxiety, protection and cleansing.
  • Selenite: aka ‘Liquid Light’ – cleansing, connecting you to Source energy, protective. Find out how to cleanse your aura with Selenite.
