February’s Full Moon occurs on the 19th-20thFebruary – depending on where you are in the world - and rises in the earth sign of Virgo. A full moon always supports us to let go.

Both the new moon and the full moon this month come with a lot of very positive, excited energy, forward looking and adventurous! February’s full moon is the most ‘super’ moon of the year – as this is the closest the moon will be to us during 2019, so be prepared for some very strong energy!

October's Full Moon (on the Thursday 25th in Australia) is in the sign of Taurus which gives it a bit of a different flavour to the general full moon energy that supports us to finish, close off and let go of things that no longer serve us.

Many very common symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, respiratory congestion and brain fog can be caused by a silent and often-undiagnosed household toxin - mould! This video discusses how and when to look into whether mould may be causing your wellbeing issues and what to do about it. If you would prefer to read my Blog on the topic, it was published by the Wellness Universe. This topic falls into one of the aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing - Surroundings. I also cover some simple steps to take to reduce the risk of mould becoming a problem in your home: Open up: open doors and windows as often as possible, fresh moving air is the enemy of mould! Clean regularly: vacuum and dust, change linens Dehumidify: if you live in a humid climate, or your home has been diagnosed as damp, a dehumidifier will help to reduce the moisture build up that mould loves Indoor plants: plants naturally remove toxins from the air, and of course they also produce oxygen so they will make a big improvement on the quality of the air in your home (or workplace) Use essential oils: NB. definitely do not use artificial air fresheners – they are literally adding toxins into your surroundings by masking unpleasant smells with chemicals. Tea tree oil is anti-fungal and has a beautiful fresh aroma, it is literally
Have you ever wondered how and why undertaking energetic ‘healing’ practices actually does work? A couple of weeks ago it was National Science Week and I was celebrating the fact that for the first time in 10 years I didn’t have to oversee a primary school science fair project! Sometimes I hate my kids growing up but not in this regard! Anyway to mark the occasion I thought that it might be useful to give everyone a bit of a refresher on the science behind my two favourite tools for energetic balance – reiki and aromatherapy. Basically it comes down to understanding that everything is energy. This is basic physics and the stuff that Einstein ‘discovered’. It can be hard to get our heads around the fact that even those things that we think of as ‘solid’ are in fact all made up of minute and constantly moving particles of energy. That includes us human beings! When becoming a reiki practitioner I was trained and attuned to tap into the energy that is all around us all of the time. It makes total sense that if you can tap into more of the stuff that we are all made of and direct it to where you are lacking in energy, wellness or balance, you will feel better! Think of it like any other ‘gap filler’ – when you have to mend
This video on the Power of Pain was recorded during National Pain Week (23-29th July 2018). In it I discuss the following aspects of pain: its purpose the metaphysical point of view my own recent experience with it treating it holistically with reiki using essential oils to treat it The Essential Oils I talk about Essential oils also work on all energetic levels of the body and provide a beautiful take home tool (for those not trained in Reiki!) to continue their treatment. Essential oils all have a particular emotional journey that they help us to move along, which is perfect when we want to tackle the underlying emotional causes of our pain, without even necessarily knowing what they are. Interestingly all of the essential oils that have strong analgesic (pain killing) properties also help us with being emotionally stuck, constricted, fearful or controlled, which is so important when we remember that pain is giving us a message to stop and reassess something in our life. My top pick is Rosemary because it is strongly analgesic and also helps to eliminate emotional restrictions that prevent us from moving toward our higher purpose. Other oils that are useful here are: peppermint (especially where you need focus), fennel (especially where you feel unfulfilled), ginger (especially where you feel depleted), lavender (especially where you feel neglected), marjoram (especially where you feel anxious), and
Self protection is so important when you have a person or people in your life that leave you feeling exhausted whenever you spend time with them? The problem with having this level of emotional fatigue on an ongoing baiss is that it leaves you much more vulnerable to other stressors and then in turn to physical and mental illnesses. Find out how to energetically protect yourself from those draining friends in this video! All of the essential oils that I mention in the video can be found in my Shop.

Moving on from grief and breaking the cycle of negative energy Throughout life we all experience grief. There are a multitude of reasons why this can be so. You may have a loved one die or become seriously ill, you may lose a pet, you may have to move on from a job, a place or a group of people that have been a big part of your life for a long time. The risk of not dealing with grief appropriately is that the emotion takes over your life and creates a cycle of negative energy where you stop looking after yourself and become unable to let go of the sadness and loss, risking mental of physical illness. How can you deal well with grief? Give yourself time. Grieving is not a 24 hour virus, you will need to journey through the 5 stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance) over a period of time. This will vary from person to person but can be weeks, through to months, or even longer. It is important to allow yourself to actually feel sad and to be able to express this, so make sure that you are giving yourself the opportunity to do so. Don’t rush back to work after bereavement leave, forcing yourself to be in a situation where you need to be professional and action-orientated rather than allowing
A client - and dear friend - rang me today to cancel her appointment because she has come down with a nasty cold, unfortunately a few days before she is flying overseas! She was booked in for an aromatherapy massage, and as she was suffering from nasal congestion and feeling a bit feverish the idea of taking off her clothes and lying face down for 45 minutes was not appealing! She was also concerned about giving me her germs. My first reaction was, of course, sympathy! My second reaction was that my clients should not ever worry about giving me their illness. I told Jules that I could protect myself, and I meant it most sincerely! As Reiki Master I will always ensure that I protect myself from taking on the energies of other people and my use of essential oils gives me (and clients) added protection, through diffusing oils that have anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-septic properties to ward off any germs that may lurk in my treatment room! Really, would you not go to see your GP because you were sick and didn't want to give them your germs? No, of course not. My dream is that in the future more people will go to an energy healer as their first point of call for treatment of any illness.* Most illnesses have their origins in your energetic body. In
