Free Guided Meditation for the January 2019 Supermoon Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse


 “We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come.” ~ Joseph Campbell

The Supermoon Blood Moon Full-Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is almost upon us. It will happen on January 20/21, and it brings with it great energies of shift and transformation.

This eclipse is the ‘Night of the Luminous Soul’.

It gifts us the capacity to become calm warriors in our families and communities. A calm warrior is brave and strong and does not need aggression or violence in order to fight for their cause. A calm warrior acts with inner strength, wisdom, courage and intelligence. A calm warrior lives with peace in their heart. They act from love.

The eclipse heralds energies of courage, clarity, determination, resilience, patience and empathy. We realise that we are not our struggle. We can sit in compassion for our current selves, rise above our pain and confusion and begin to align ourselves with solutions and actions that will change the face and future of our world, starting right now. It is a time for revelations and breakthroughs, for divine inspiration and conscious creativity. It is a time for clarity and renewal.

Guided Meditation

To help you work with the energies of this Lunar Eclipse I’ve recorded a free Guided Meditation for you. You can sit or lie down to do this meditation. Please choose a crystal or stone to hold in your cupped hands as you listen. You’ll need to set aside twenty minutes for the meditation, and some time afterwards for integration and journalling. It’s also fine to fall asleep while listening to the meditation. To enhance the meditation you may also like to diffuse or anoint yourself with some Jasmine, Neroli or Ylang Ylang essential oil.

You can work with this meditation any time between 18 January and 5 February 2019, when the New moon closes off the energies of the current eclipse.

Here are some simple activities you can do in the next few days to enhance your intuitive connection and psychic ability and to clarify your life direction:

Reflections from the Guided Meditation

Take some time to write down any insights or clarity you received during your meditation. It’s fine to do this meditation more than once, and to add to this journalling exercise over time.

Who Am I?

This activity opens you to your own soul wisdom as well as Universal wisdom. It can help to show you who you are now, and who you have the potential of becoming. Don’t judge anything that comes to you. Write it all down!

Directions: Sit comfortably with your hands in the Anjali Mudra (prayer position) so that your hands are in front of your heart and your eyes are gazing straight ahead. You can close your eyes if you want. (Note: If you also want to work with a crystal for this meditation hold the stone in your cupped hands first, energise it with light, the place it on your lap or on the ground in front of you or under your chair – then sit in the prayer position) Breathe deeply, relax your body and then ask Who Am I? Wait for any words, images or impressions to appear. Then open your eyes and begin to answer this question in your journal. You might want to do this a few times in the next few days, as each time you do this you will be able to go deeper and into more detail.

Using Cards for Clarification:

Choose an oracle or tarot deck that is meaningful to you. Shuffle the cards and then choose three, placing them face down in front of you. Once again sit in Anjali Mudra (prayer position), calm your mind and ask Who am I? When you are ready open your eyes and begin to work with the cards.

Turn over the first card – This shows you who you have been, in the past for this current life, or perhaps even from previous lives. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Turn over the second card – This shows you who you are right now, including strengths and limitations. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Turn over the third card – This shows you who you can become, or what you can rise above for this current life. Write down what comes to you in your journal.

Reflection Exercise for Life Clarity: Leave the journal for a while. An hour perhaps, or longer. Whatever feels right to you. Then come back and read what you have written. Look for the words that resonate, and for anything that provides inspiration or direction.

Now write again, this time listing your intentions for this lifetime. Who do you want to be? What do you want to contribute, create, have or experience? How will you do this? Trust that whatever is in your heart is possible!

Enjoy this time of connection and reflection. You’re in our hearts, prayers and meditations, and we wish you well.
Much love, Nicole  xx

How To Set Up A Crystal Grid for the January 20/21 Supermoon Full Moon Lunar Eclipse


“For within your flesh, deep within the center of your being, is the undaunted, waiting, longing, all-knowing. Is the ready, able, perfect. Within you, waiting its turn to emerge, piece by piece, with the dawn of every former test of trial and blackness, is the next unfolding, the great unfurling of wings, the re-forged backbone of a true Child of Light.” 
~ Jennifer DeLucy

One of the things I have always loved to do is to construct a crystal grid to sit out under the sky and absorb all of the energies from the celestial bodies above, as well as the grounded, cleansing and empowering energies of the earth. I place my working and personal stones within the grid, as well as stones for students and for my future Retreats. I’ll often add jewellery too, including pearls. I may even add my singing bowls to be charged.

Right now, with the approaching Supermoon Full Moon Lunar Eclipse of January 20/21 is a perfect time to capitalise on these energies. Set up your grid any time before the 20th, and leave it out for up to a week. Or if you really want to supercharge and anchor these energies leave your grid set up until February 5 and take it down after the energy of the New Moon.

How to Construct a Simple Grid:

To make a basic grid choose a shape to outline a space – think circle, square, triangle or rectangle. Use crystals to anchor the corners or to outline the circle OR use a central anchor stone and then radiate patterns out from that central stone. Spirals can be great for that. If you create a shape whose centre is empty you can place yourself, any other stones, pearls or jewellery in the centre to be charged up within the grid. Energise the grid first before placing items inside. Feel free to also use shells, leaves and flowers in your grid construction.

Energise the grid by running white light into it. You can do this with your hands, or just visualise a stream of white light from the Universe coming in to activate your grid.

Where to set up your Grid:

If you have the space set the grid up on the ground in your yard. You need open sky above you, or a place where moonlight and sunlight will reach. Make sure it is somewhere secure and safe. You could also set it up on a large rock, on a flat cut tree stump, or on a timber deck or table. Crystals and items that might not like rain or moisture can be placed inside a covered glass bowl, jar or bottle to protect them from the elements.

Don’t have any of those? Fill a tray with sand or rice and build your grid on top of that. Try to avoid using salt as a grid base because it can erode some stones. You can also place your grid on a deck, windowsill or balcony.

Creating a Devotional Crystal from the Supermoon Eclipse Energies

This eclipse is the ‘Night of the Luminous Soul‘. It gifts us the capacity to become calm warriors in our families and communities. The eclipse heralds energies of courage, clarity, determination, resilience, patience and empathy. We realise that we are not our struggle, and we can choose to align ourselves with solutions and actions that will change the face and future of our world, starting right now. It is a time for revelations and breakthroughs, for divine inspiration and conscious creativity. It is a time for hope and optimism.

If you would like to make intentional use of these astrological energies, you can use a quartz-based crystal, chosen specifically for this purpose.  The crystals will absorb the energetic qualities of the Lunar Eclipse and will be powerful transformational tools for your journey.

The Devotional Stone will assist with:

  • bringing outdated thought patterns, fears and negative thoughts and behaviours to the surface where they can be cleared and healed
  • developing a clear connection to the Earth
  • stepping into our natural wisdom and intuition
  • moving out of apathy and into action
  • improving communication and co-operation between our heads and hearts
  • encouraging cycles of growth, expansion and sustainable ethical abundance
  • facilitating breakthroughs that bring clarity, clear direction and drive towards positive action in areas that use our talents and gifts
  • heart opening and open communication with others
  • spiritual and psychic opening and awareness
  • connection to our physical body and its real needs
  • deepening calm and inner peace
  • activating our natural leadership skills

Suitable crystals will include:

  • any form of clear quartz; including Tibetan quartz, rutilated or tourmalinated quartz, and herkimer diamonds
  • Smoky quartz
  • Milky Quartz
  • Amethyst
  • Rose quartz
  • Citrine
  • Aventurine
  • Agate
  • Jasper
  • Carnelian
  • Chalcedony
  • Tigers Eye
  • Onyx
  • Any stone you are deeply drawn to and feel a deep conection with

This can be a crystal you wear, or one you hold or have in your space.  You can also charge up more than one, so that you have a few to work with and choose from.

Method:

You’ll need to create a simple crystal grid. Activate and energise your Grid. Then say a simple prayer to bless the sacred space.

Then place any jewellery or crystals within the grid.

Once you are happy with the placement of crystals and other items, say the following words:

I honour the Moon, the Sun and the Spheres.  I invite the vibration of these Celestial Bodies to Bless and Energise my offerings. I open myself to wisdom, healing and Light.  I open myself to my Path, and welcome the opportunity to be of service. I am ready to be all that I came to this life to be.

Leave the grid in place for a minimum of twenty-four hours, including the daylight hours of January 21.  

Once you have pulled the grid down, your crystals and jewellery are ready to use.  

Embrace this beautiful energy that is coming via the Eclipse.  We have chosen this lifetime for ourselves, and it is no accident that we are here right now to help and contribute using our talents, gifts and passion. Live from your heart, and open to being all that you came here to be.  It’s time! 

All my love, Nicole ♥ xx

Are You Ready For The January Supermoon Lunar Eclipse and 2019 Cosmic Energies?


“You are a cosmic traveler; your body is temporary, but its essence is eternal…” 
~
 Dave Zebian

Hey, Lovelies!
I want to bring your attention to some things happening in the sky above us right now. As sensitive souls, empaths and intuitives I know you’re going to be affected by these energies more than most. I also know you’re going to want to use these energies to catapult yourself into a state of peak awareness and connection.

From a technical point of view we will experience the unusual phenomena of all of the Planets in our Universe in direct motion between January 17 and 21. This rare alignment will then be backstopped by a total lunar eclipse of January’s Supermoon.

January has been a big month for major astrological events, and the next three months see several more.

Tomorrow I’ll explain some of these big events in more detail. I’ll also have a workbook and guided meditation bundle available for those of you who want to work with these energies more closely. It’s an incredibly supportive time for all kinds of soul work, and for deepening your conscious connection to the planet, your intuition and your own soul awareness.

Meanwhile, be gentle with yourself as this big moon drags emotions to the surface and wakes you up to what you really need to be paying attention to in your life.

Lots of love, Nicole ❤ xx
