First Saturn Return

I had a fantastic week at Oxford, immersing myself in astrology and being surrounded by astrology enthusiasts. I would love to write more on this but I need to prepare for my next adventure - Hong Kong!

Staying in the eye of a hurricane

It's so easy to say to people 'Think positive!'

I think one of my life lessons is to control my emotions, particularly anger. This week has been filled with various incidents which, yet again, annoyed me to the core. The only difference this week, compared to the previous one, is that I was able to remember to use positive affirmations, though I do find it a challenge not to be affected by the people around me and the situations I find myself in. Doreen Virtue describes this as 'staying in the eye of a hurricane'. Let's see if I could put this into practice......

Solar eclipse in Leo

I have noticed that many people around me have had some sort of important event which occurred around the time of the solar eclipse (1st August). Astrologically, solar eclipses symbolise a new beginning depending on where it falls in your birth chart. This eclipse could act as a reminder that a change is long overdue.

Admittedly, nothing signficant happened to me during that time, however, in the past week, I have felt the 'aftermath' of it instead - if such a phenomenon exists! A combination of external events and internal hormones (!) have push my temper beyond control - I had to calm myself down many a-times. I then attempted to extract the reasons behind these 'lessons'. Afterall, I do believe that external events tend to mirror our internal state. To re-balance myself, I consulted Louise Hay's 'I can do it' booklet. It was when I was reading through it that I realised how much I have forgotten about positive thinking. I have been so focused on my day-to-day chores that I allowed negative energy to accumulate in my mind.

Here are some of my favourites I have picked out to cleanse my mind, body and spirit:

I realise that stress is only fear. I now release all fears.

When I feel tense, I remember to relax all of the muscles and organs of my body.

I am even-tempered and emotionally well balanced.

I am safe when I express my feelings. I can be serene in any situation.

I slowly breathe in and out, and I find myself relaxing more and more with each breath.

I create a stress-free world for myself.

I let go of all fear and doubt, and life becomes simple and easy for me.

I close my eyes, think positive thoughts and breathe goodness in and out.

Miracles of Water

In a previous post, I have mentioned a Japanese researcher who found that by exposing samples of water to words with positive or negative connotations, the water crystals collected under the microscope would reflect the nature of these words.

As I was sharing these pictures with my teeange cousin yesterday, I noticed that for 'Angel' and 'Devil', the water crystals collected both have a big black hole in the middle. He shrewdly pointed out that the devil is supposedly a fallen angel, perhaps the black hole depicts this link?
