Kelly Spencer - Happy Healthy YOU

(A wellness column by Kelly Spencer: writer, life coach, yoga & meditation teacher, holistic healer and a mindful life enthusiast!)

The weather has finally turned to fall. Windows are closed, and heaters turned on and extra blankets added to our bed linens. Kids are back into routine. Cold and flu season has begun. And on November 5th we shift our clocks back one hour.

There are many shifts happening right now.

I have also noticed several clients at my business talking about restlessness and dissatisfaction with their current circumstances. Many, including myself, are working through big changes in their personal and professional lives.

Did you know energetically, astrologically, and through numerology, there are also big shifts taking place in the universe that we can take advantage of?

November’s full moon was called the Beaver Moon by both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes, according to the Farmer's Almanac, because this was the time to set beaver traps before swamps froze to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. The November full moon was also called the Full Frost Moon by other Native American peoples. This coming full moon is November 4th and the energetic shift of the full moon is super-sized.

Although not an astronomical term, the term Super Moon is a fetching reference to a full moon which is the closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. This results in a larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth. The full moon power pours down a tremendous amount of energy which can amplify our present state. Not sure if this is true? Ask a nurse, firefighter or paramedic their experiences on a full moon!

This intensified and heightened energy force should be given mindfulness. It is important to harness its energy by ensuring that we are being mindful and conscious of our current thoughts, feelings and vibration. If we are in upheaval, acting rashly or impulsively, or thinking and feeling in lower vibrational energies such as guilt, anger, obligation or fear, then this energy might be amped up.

Therefore, it is advantageous to take some time and get calm, centered and clear on where we are at and where we want to go. As we tap into the energy of what we truly and clearly desire, we become more aligned with the manifesting of those insights.

This full moon also falls in the sign of Taurus. This combination is one of the best places for it to fall as it brings an energy that is magical, abundant and even romantic.

On October 26th, there was a meeting of the Sun and Jupiter which continues it’s coupling in November. This is a very lucky time according to astrologers. It is an energetic kick-starter for dreams, goals, abundance and luck. This intensity might assist us to feel more energetic and ambitious, to step towards are goals and dreams.

As this energy moves into the month of November, the numerological energy of the 11th month holds the sacred number of 11. As it occurs in the year 2017, in numerology the four individual numbers of this year would be added together (2+0+1+7), to equal 10 or (1+0), the number one. The number one and combinations of it represents unity and oneness.

Perhaps you are one of the many out there that often sees the time just as it’s 11:11? It is said the energy of these “1” combinations are lucky, powerful and creative. In the study of numbers, this can assist to manifest our desires with more ease as we flow in alignment of the oneness energy. When we are in tune and aligned with the frequencies of these vibrations and energies, we can walk our true individual path, and this is where the magic of manifestation occurs.

The energies of the Sun-Jupiter combo, the full 'super' moon and the movement into the 11th month on our calendar are said to be at the highest place on November 11th (11-11).

So, remember the 3 C’s: calm, center and clarity. Take time to know what this means for you. Sit in stillness, comfortably indoors or outdoors, connect with your breath with some slow and steady full breaths in and out through the nose. Once you feel centered and calm then begin to ask yourself the questions that are important.

With these energies shifts happening we can create some powerful and productive changes in our lives creating a life that feels aligned to us in all areas. By harnessing this abundant feel good energy, I encourage you to bring more clarity to what you desire in career, personal growth, relationships, health and happiness.

Once you have labelled what it is you would like to manifest in the physical and external world, for example 'a better job' or 'a happy relationship' or 'improved physical health,' I encourage you to tap into the feeling attached to these. For instance, what would it feel like to have a better job? Would it feel more abundant? What would it feel like to feel healthier? Perhaps it feels more energetic?

As we align with our vibrational energy through the thought-feeling exchange, we can expand it by asking ourselves what thoughts, feelings and action create that feeling. For example, when do I feel abundant in areas of my life other than my job? Where and when do I feel energetic?

One easy way to almost instantly place yourself in an energy of happiness and abundance is gratitude. Make gratitude lists, tell people whose presence makes your life better that you are grateful for them. Look for ways to feel and express the energy of thankful appreciation.

The Law of Attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive (or negative) thoughts, a person brings positive (or negative) experiences into their life. Therefore, the more we become clear of the feelings associated on the outcome of our desires, the more we are in alignment to manifest.

Give less awareness and attentions to that which you don’t want and what is not working for you and kickstart your focus on what you want and how that feels using the power of universal energy.
