New Moon, New Start

Today's New Moon energies can be like wind at our backs if we make use of them.
"This year's Pisces New Moon is especially powerful for many reasons. Just as Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the next sign, Aries, is the beginning of the new astrological year.  Since we are in an inverted moon cycle ...the seeds we plant at this Pisces New Moon will bear fruit during the next Full Moon [in 2 weeks, on March 27]... What has your soul been longing for?   Plant the seed of that desire--Mars the warrior the very last degree of Pisces at this New Moon...will help you." (source)
“The Pisces New Moon message is to follow our heart. Only the heart can make our dreams come true. We need to stay out of the ego mind. We are to live from our heart. “

"Take just five minutes for yourself today, to place new intentions. Quiet the distractions around you, closing your eyes and ears to the outside world. Center on your inner energy, aware of how far your heart has traveled to reach this point in your life. Compare your feelings from four weeks ago, to this moment in time." (source)
What has your heart and soul been longing for?  Dare to dream it.  Now.

Unwelcome Energy

A client wrote me recently with a question.  She is considering Reiki training and wondered if  " allowing [Reiki] energy to flow in, a negative or unwanted energy might also be able to enter."  It's a good question, and a perfectly valid concern. 

The fact is, we live in an energy soup:  all sorts of energies are affecting us all the time.   We can't so much as look at a person without our energy entering them.  You've experienced this when you've felt eyes penetrating from behind you and it caused you to turn around.  Enter a room where an argument has just occurred and you will sense tension in the air.

Situations like these aren't particularly bothersome.  But there are times when an energy latches on:  something enters and stays, and it interferes with our well being.  All of us are prey to errant, unwanted energies entering our energy fields just walking around in life.  Reiki can clear these disturbances.  My client was reassured to learn that opening to Reiki energy could only benefit her.

With or without Reiki, we can only be victims of the world of energy when we fail to exercise our privilege to participate with it, to actively engage it.  The range from novice to master in doing so is but a matter of degrees. Protection from--or intrusion by--unwanted energies can even be as near as your next thought.  To quote author and entrepreneur Mike Dooley, "Thoughts become things:  choose them wisely!"
