Gregory Reece-Smith, of presents a copy of his August 2015 Harmonising Times Newsletter sent free to subscribers in the first week of every month.

This next phase of 2015 is moving beyond each of us taking responsibility for our own lives, now it is also about each of us being congruent in how we live it.

Any conflicts between our thoughts, words, actions and what we say we believe will be highlighted. It will no longer be possible to say we love ourselves unconditionally and yet act in a way which does not show we do, for example in what we eat or how we mentally berate ourselves for how we look etc… Being authentic is about to become far more personal, affecting all aspects of our life.

We now need to constantly observe what we think, say, act and be, asking ourselves is it congruent or not with what we state to be our values? This is not to judge ourselves, only to observe and be our witness. How we act afterwards will determine whether or not there is any ongoing conflict.

Which links to the second of the Laws of the Universe, that of Supply. This in essence means progress and growth is perpetual. When one desire is achieved, another desire for a greater good will appear. When one vision is reached, so another more glorious one will unfold, so urging on each of us. Thus driving the Universe´s continuing expansion.

Which is why each of us knows only two states, contraction or expansion. Anything in between appears as bodily symptoms resulting from the conflict.

If there is any aspect you would like to learn more about, then please feel free to email directly using the contact form:

July began exercising far more pressure on many of us to address our internal conflicts. This was not only personal as just prior to the new moon on 15th July there was the initial agreement to agree to negotiate steps with Greece and then the agreement with Iran.

Interestingly, on the 15th Mars was opposing Pluto. This is often a violent aspect and causes events such as riots, demonstrations, police action, military action, fires and explosions. Suggesting it could be a long hot fiery summer in various areas.

Additionally Pluto, the planet of underworld so used to bringing out what is hidden, was stationed over Hong Kong at the time of the new moon – anyone been watching the stock market gyrations? Mars was over Washington D.C. at the same moment, suggesting a power struggle hidden from view is underway! Being the most distant planet – Pluto´s effect is very long term.

For some of our clients the symptoms have been more visible. Amongst them several with painful knees, ankles and sore elbows. These are all connected to altering course.

Knees are about the ego, being too full of pride, being stubborn at the moment when flexibility is needed. Ankles are also about inflexibility, though through guilt, and the inability to receive pleasure. Elbows represent uncertainty as to the direction and accepting new experiences. More understanding is available in The Seven Secrets to Living in Harmony – (You can purchase your copy from anywhere in the world by visiting Amazon at or you can download an pdf version from the Creating Harmony website).

All are signs of an internal conflict between our thoughts, words, actions and our desires.

Desire is the title of the second chapter of Napoleon Hill´s classic Think and Grow Rich 'Desire: The Starting Point of All Achievement – The First Step Towards Richness'. The word desire means "of the father" So, when you desire something, it is the Universe working through you. Hence the bodily symptoms when there is conflict with our actual thoughts, words and actions.

Usually these arise from established patterns of thinking and behaviour which are no longer appropriate. If you feel you would benefit from a free strategy session to help address such issues then just completing the questionnaire will let you know if Creating Harmony can help you.

In addition to those at Creating Harmony, we have spoken to many people who have been experiencing disruption in their pineal-pituitary gland complex. The symptoms being temporary waves of brain fog, confusion, disorientation, lag time in comprehension, vision impairment, itchy-burning–watery eyes, sensitivity to smell, sinus congestion, headaches, vertigo, fatigue and sleepiness/sleeplessness to name the most evident ones.

All signs of the re-balancing which the new moon initiated to re-align our conscious actions with our intuition rather than continuing to rely only on the mind. Which is why some clients have appeared with symptoms around right eye and/or ear – the right side of the head links to the third eye and so free flow of intuition, or not.

Here at Creating Harmony, the most visible symbol of this was Gregory losing his glasses. Walking in the garden late on a Saturday they fell from his shirt pocket. Despite exhaustive searches by several over many days they were not to be found. Result new glasses had to be purchased, a new set of lenses to view the world!

In Ayurvedic astrology the sun and moon, the ruling planets of Leo and Cancer respectively, represent the “head-heart centre”. In yogic thought, the sun and moon are considered the right (masculine) and left (feminine) eyes. Broadly, the Cancer (moon) and Leo (sun) represent the polarity between emotion and reason, gradually moving closer to the opportunity to strike the perfect balance between thinking and feeling/mind and heart.

Expressed another way, as mentioned in previous editions an objective for this year is to bring into balance the Divine Masculine and Feminine within each of us, so enabling our creative vision to be birthed. It is why many people we have spoken to felt in July they were in a state of calm confusion!

The full moon on the 25th felt intense to us, then the 26th much lighter, as though a new phase had begun. Then we were reminded this was the day Sirius rose alongside the sun, so often viewed as the start of the Mayan and Egyptian years.

Remember our heart always knows what it cannot see, our mind trusts only the logic of what it has experienced and we can see.

In the July edition we referred to the sound of love as 528 Hertz. As is the way of the Universe, a few days ago a link to John Lennon´s Imagine arrived played in 528Hz Solfeggio Frequency. It may help you during the coming month or so to maintain balance.

With only five months left in 2015, it does seem the year is moving ever rapidly to a close. August beginning the day after the blood full moon means we are now in a period of disruptive consciousness, breaking our moulds. It will no longer be possible to just go through the motions, heart and head must connect, lip service will not abide!


As August is a holiday month for many in the Northern Hemisphere it often does bring to the fore relationships without a firm footing. So, finally we need to stand up for what we believe and what believes in us.

This will be difficult for many if not almost all of us, as ask yourself how self-possessed are you in terms of your values? Most of us are not, even though it is the basis for all enduring relationships. Instead they are almost always driven by conditioning. The impact of the planets is going to be intense until the 30th. Then it will become dramatic and emotional very fast, encouraging us all to be willing to speak our true feelings, even though we are unused to doing so!

All relationships are under review, primarily with ourselves, our family, our business, our employer, other people – the way we communicate in all aspects of our lives. In seeking to create a sound base it will be essential to be willing to re-evaluate and review. If you are not sure as to your own direction, the period until 6th September is supporting you in allowing yourself to gain clarity.

Emerging Systems

The first 10 days of August will see a very strong energy for Earth changes.

We have been in the energy of Saturn square Jupiter for several months now. This is the energy of financial ups and downs, which has been very apparent! The square between these two planets completed on 3rd August. This is not say financial challenges will be over, rather this may be viewed as the turning point.

Saturn began to move into direct motion toward Sagittarius on 1st August and will be busy raising the frequency on Earth until mid-September. This sign rules the banking system, courts of law, lawyers, teachers, mountains, religion and the higher mind.

All of which suggests emergence of new systems for such matters. Saturn will be in Sagittarius for two and a half years.

The second of three conjunctions between Venus and Jupiter occurs on 4th August, adding to the nature of the change initiated on 1st July, re-emphasising creative inspiration and social community based activity.

Balance in all aspects

On 8th August every year the Earth aligns with Sirius and the Galactic centre of the Universe, so allowing an extremely beneficial stream of light to flow in. Often referred to as the Lion’s Gateway, this year is a rare triple 8 Lion’s Gateway Activation, as 2015 (2+0+1+5=8) brings a third 8 to the equation.

So adding another push to greater alignment between our heart’s intelligence and our thinking mind. Thereby creating a new state of balance, gently revealing the harmony that is possible when fear is accepted for what it is and into a new alignment with spiritual love.

Which is why some reports refer to the 8-8-8 as the Magdalene (Goddess) Gateway. The number eight is one of the numbers of the Goddess, along with the numbers 5 and 13. Venus is the planet of the Goddess and that planet is associated with the numbers 5 and 8 because of its orbit through our solar system.

This escalation and heightening of electromagnetic energy from the Sun and other cosmic sources will expand during August to reach their peak around 23rd and 24th September.

Be your Leader, be Congruent

Also on 8th August Mars shifts into Leo, calling each of us to be the leader, whether of our life or in its activities. It is likely to feel quite intense so there is a health warning of be careful about doing too much, and watch out to ensure those around you do not do the same!

From the 11th fortune finder Jupiter begins to create self-possessed expansion. This though will need to be aligned with your purpose rather than expansion for expansion´s sake. Which is where there is a link back to being authentic, being congruent between your values and what you do and say. In that sense it is a moment to review the how and why of seeking money rather than for its own sake.

So are you generating money in alignment with your own values, rather than because it is available, ignoring the personal values and ethics? Not judging whilst hypocritically doing the same! This also impacts financial freedom and what is ethical for each of us

Think and create what you desire

August 2015 in terms of numerology is a number 7, this is the number offering self-reflection. Seeking to answer questions such as `who am I on planet Earth?´ `Does my life add value to the world?´ `Do you make a difference?´ So you will not be surprised to learn this a month for facing some truths, going within and seeking answers to some of these questions.

This is a month to find out how you can be the ‘alchemist’ and manifest your dreams for not only your highest purpose, also for the highest good of all.

So perhaps a month to spend more time by yourself, being in Nature, seeking understanding outside of your usual haunts. Reflecting and nurturing yourself, family, home and all relationships. The number represents harmony, healing, beauty and service.

Allow moments this month to enjoy just being in nature, reflecting on all the loving relationships within your life – most importantly that with yourself!

In Summary

August´s energies are encouraging us all to:
– observe where there is no congruency between your values and what you do, say, write and think;
– re-evaluate and review all your relationships as to whether or not they serve you, no matter how long they have been established;
– allow expansion through aligning to your values, being true to you, being more authentic in all aspects of your life;
– allow yourself moments for calm and peace;
– love yourself unconditionally; and
– make conscious use of the Law of Supply to bring into form your own vision for your life.

Until September with its themes of just trusting, enjoy each moment, breathe and be!
