Goats are also great mountain climbers so remember that with perseverance we are destined to reach new heights of greatness!!!

Did you know that the heart is more powerful than the brain?  Here are some interesting heart facts and ways to amplify your heart energy.

1.  The heart emits Electromagnetic energy that can be measured and changes according to emotions. It’s magnetic field can be measured up to several feet away and is 5000x stronger than the brain. The hearts electric energy is 100 times stronger than that of the brain.

2. Science has now proven that positive, harmonious feelings enhance mental focus, calmness, boosts the immune system, intuition, and the frequency of spiritual feelings.

3.  Positive emotions can help the brain in creativity and innovative problem solving.  The heart sends more information to the brain then vice versa.

4. Your heart beats about 100,000 times in one day, about 35 million times in a year and about 2.5 billion times in a lifetime.

5. You use about the same amount of force squeezing a tennis ball as your heart uses to pump blood out to the body. Even at rest, the muscles of the heart works twice as hard as the leg muscles of a person sprinting.

6.  Your body has about 5.6 liters (6 quarts) of blood. This 5.6 liters of blood circulates through the body three times every minute.  In one day, the blood travels a total of 19,000 km (12,000 miles)—that’s four times the distance across the US from coast to coast.

7.  The heart pumps about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime—that’s enough to fill more than 3 super tankers.

8.  In fetal development, the heart forms and starts beating before the brain is developed.

Cultivating the energies of the Heart

Step #1 – Bring your awareness to your breath.    Follow your breath as goes in and out.

Step #2 – Breathe a little slower than usual and imagine that you are breathing in and out through the heart area.

Step #3 – Reflect on something that you are grateful for, something that brings a smile to your heart.  It might be someone you love, or somewhere you love being, or the smell of a flower, etc..

Step #4 – When you connect with the feeling of love and gratitude make it stronger.  Imagine it to be like a light glowing in your heart.  Amplify the energy and expand it and make it stronger say “thank you”.

Step #5 – Anchor these vibration in your body on a cellular level by touching together your thumb with your forefinger on both hands.

Step #6 – Extend it out to someone or some place.  Imagine this light reaching and touching the person or place.  Imagine them receiving and being nourished by it.  Say “thank you.”

Step #7 – Bring this light back to yourself and fill yourself up with self love, appreciation and acceptance.  Imagine yourself cocooned in this light.  Say “thank you” to yourself.

February Full Moon Exercise with {{{AUDIO}}} Hypnosound Healing

This month’s Full Moon (February 3rd) coincided with the cross quarter holy day known as Imbolc, Candlemas, Festival of Light, Day of Brigid or St. Brigid and also ground hog day.

It’s the mid day point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere.   When people were reliant on growing their own food making sure they had enough provisions to last them through to the spring when they could plant again was very important, and so  was the returning of the light of the Sun.

This was seen as a time to celebrate the return of the light and strengthen it.  Interestingly as well, in the Jewish tradition this marks the 40 day period after the birth of Jeshua and was the time he’d be brought to the temple for presentation.  It is also associated with the goddess Brigid who was the Celtic triple goddess and the keeper of the fire and bringer of inspiration.

With the full moon in Leo we are also being called to activate our fire within and allow our gifts and talents to shine.  As Aquarius is where our Sun is transiting opposite it the key to it is to make sure that we are offering those gifts and talents in service to the good of humanity.  In service.

Here are some things to consider at this time.  You can create a ritual of it by setting a sacred space and lighting a candle.

1.  What talent would you like to have empowered most at this time?

2.  How will you use it in service to humanity?

3.  Breathe into your heart chakra reflect on things you are grateful for or love and that bring a smile to your heart.

4.  Imagine your gifts fully manifested and all of the ways it touches and uplifts humanity.  Engage all of your senses in your envisioning … Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Spirit, Smell and Taste.

5.  Anchor – create an anchor by touching together you thumb with your forefinger.   So now any time you touch together your thumb with your forefinger it will trigger this cellular memory of success!

6.  Affirmation – create an affirmation for yourself in support of your intention and repeat often!

7.  Complete ritual giving thanks!  Blow out candle!

Candlemas Day (the Christian festival of lights )

candle2nd February is Candlemas Day.

This ancient festival marks the midpoint of winter, halfway between the shortest day and the spring equinox.

Candlemas is a traditional Christian festival that commemorates the ritual purification of Mary forty days after the birth of her son Jesus. On this day, Christians remember the presentation of Jesus Christ in the Temple. Forty days after the birth of a Jewish boy, it was the custom to take him to the temple in Jerusalem to be presented to God by his thankful parents.

In pre-Christian times, this day was known as the ‘Feast of Lights’ and celebrated the increase strength of the life-giving sun as winter gave way to spring.

How did the 2nd February come to be called Candlemas?

It was the day of the year when all the candles, that were used in the church during the coming year, were brought into church and a blessing was said over them – so it was the Festival Day (or ‘mass’) of the Candles.

Candles were important in those days not only because there was no electric lights. Some people thought they gave protection against plague and illness and famine. For Christians, they were (and still are) a reminder of something even more important. Before Jesus came to earth, it was as if everyone was ‘in the dark’. People often felt lost and lonely. Afraid. As if they were on their own, with no one to help them. Then came Jesus with his message that he is with his followers always ready to help and comfort them. As if he is a guiding light to them in the darkness. Christians often talk of Jesus as ‘the light of the World’ – and candles are lit during church services to remind Christians of this.

Candlemas is a day which holds many different customs.

The Romans had a custom of lighting candles to scare away evil spirits in the winter.

One of the most interesting custom took place in Scotland. In the olden days, Candlemas was the day when children brought candles to school so that the classrooms could have light on dull days. As time went on, gas lighting took over from candle light. The children took money to the teacher who was suppose to spend it on sweets and cakes for the children to eat. The boy or girl taking in the most money were declared Candlemas King and Queen and they ‘ruled’ for six weeks. They had the power to make one whole afternoon a week a playtime and they could also let anyone they wished off punishment.

Other names for Candlemas Day

Candlemas’s Day also has two other names. One is the ‘Presentation of Christ in the Temple’. The other is the ‘Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary’. Both these names come from special events in the life of baby Jesus.

Candlemas Day Weather-lore, beliefs and sayings

People believe that Candlemas Day predicted the weather for the rest of the winter. The weather proverbs express the idea that a fine bright sunny Candlemas day means that there is more winter to come, whereas a cloudy wet stormy Candlemas day means that the worst of winter is over.

Weather Proverbs

If Candlemas Day be fair and bright
Winter will have another fight.
If Candlemas Day brings cloud and rain,
Winter won’t come again.

If Candlemas Day be dry and fair,
The half o the winter’s to come and mair;
If Candlemas Day be wet and foul,
The half o the winter’s gane at Yule.

Farmer’s Proverbs

‘A farmer should, on Candlemas Day,
Have half his corn and half his hay.’

‘On Candlemas Day if the thorns hang adrop,
You can be sure of a good pea crop.’

German Proverb.

The badger peeps out of his hole on Candlemas Day,
and, if he finds snow, walks abroad; but if he sees the sun shining he draws back into his hole.

In America the same story is told about the groundhog or woodchuck.

Candlemas Superstitions

A candle which drips on one side when carried in church on Candlemas, denotes a death during the year of someone dear.

Snowdrops are considered to be unlucky if brought into the house before Candlemas Day, representing a parting or death.

Any Christmas decorations not taken down by Twelfth Night (January 5th) should be left up until Candlemas Day and then taken down.
