As a foretaste of things to come here is a copy of the February 2015 Newsletter from Gregory Reece-Smith for and originally sent to his subscribers and an opportunity to look back and review how things have unfolded so far in the year, both cosmically and personally.

The newsletter has been created with the intention of providing its readers with clarity of what is going on energetically for the planet as a whole over the month. With the Universe´s process of evolution continuing to ensure constant shifts, the intention is that these indications help support and nourish you at these times and so help you 'create harmony in your life'.

How did you find January? It seemed it was over before it had begun – another illustration of how time appears to be moving faster! Added to which in the first quarter of 2015 the planets are seeking all of us to take action to create what we desire in our lives. To do so means we all need to first let go of what no longer serves us.

So if the first weeks of 2015 felt somewhat unsettled to you, know that you were not alone. Even those who may not necessarily be aware of, or are sensitive to, shifts in energy, commented 2015 feels different!
As a result, many people around the world, including those at Creating Harmony, experienced a great deal of internal and external cleansing during those first few weeks. It has been the solar plexus which seems to have been the focus of much of this cleansing. Seeking an answer to the third question of The Seven Secrets to Living in Harmony – “what is my gut telling me”?

The solar plexus is the center of our own power so this is not surprising in relation to the Universe´s call to take action to create what we truly desire in our lives.

From the Universe´s perspective this was intended to address many of the lingering beliefs and patterns keeping each of us from being able to connect with our full potential selves. No matter how or when these patterns were created, the Universe´s purpose is to ensure they no longer limit our lives. The next step is for each of us to take action to do so! 

In terms of the science, many of you may have read reports about the interplanetary magnetic field near our planet tipping south, opening a crack in Earth's magnetosphere. Solar wind poured onto Earth, fueling a very strong magnetic storm; something that also occurred in September 2014. The effect was to allow in more light from the sun, so creating a more intense flow of energy for us all.  
To paraphrase Einstein, because everything including ourselves is energy, magnetic storms affect our bodies down to the core molecular level. This pressures every dense belief and pattern held in our cells to be released. Without this there will be no space for the new to arrive, it is our choice as to when each of us does this, or not!

The almost inevitable result is that our emotions go into roller-coaster mode during such events. In addition we often find our sleep patterns and other routines are disrupted, or just change. Many have also noticed these shifts are not requiring as much ‘effort’ to effect the desired outcome as was previously the case. For some, they are occurring with no more than a simple thought! In itself an indicator of how events can/will continue to evolve.

You may have also noticed in the last ten days of January we began to feel the effect of Mercury going retrograde. Which means everything seems to be the opposite of what we expect. Mercury is the messenger and god of communication and travel. When Mercury travels backwards in the sky, where we want to go and what we want to communicate becomes confused by obstacles of our own making. We can expect resistances every way we turn.

In addition, the four major planets that rule our inner feelings: Pluto, Neptune, Uranus and Saturn have united their influences with Mercury. This intensifies the inner turmoil, confusion, and emotion. However, these four planets also represent our spiritual goals, what we aspire to become in the future.

Behind all of this inner drama, there is a mighty force moving us to make the decisions about our future that we have postponed for a long time. The Mars, Jupiter combination on 1st January meant the tone of 2015 is about expecting things to happen quickly and suddenly. Where there may not have been movement in the past, now there is. It is all a question of how much we resist as to how easily this flows.

The Universe is pushing each of us to take action and will support us to do so if, and only if, we take a step in the direction of our passion. If everything you are trying to do is not working, then look inside and seek what you truly want to be doing, not what you think you should be doing!
What is your dream? What is that passion you have always wanted to do though never had the courage to put aside the perceived constraints and limitations and so do it? Living instead your passion, to your full potential, and so a life of harmony.

Whilst Mercury goes direct on 11th February, a week later there is the new moon which brings with it the arrival of the Chinese New Year. This is the year of the Wood Goat, Ram or Sheep, they are synonymous.

The Goat is the most feminine sign and is associated with the Moon.  It fosters interest in all things esoteric and a yearning for peace and harmony, not only in the home also within the community.

The Goat likes freedom, freedom to freely think, create and simply time to be. Freedom to independently open to new creative artistic ventures and open to new opportunities only limited by the imagination.

Whilst Goats can be placid, their independence means they do not like being told what to do! Which has a challenging implication for those not following their core values during this year!

Seeding New Ways
More interestingly the new moon is the second of six so called super moons in 2015. A super moon is one where it is within 90% of its closest approach to Earth. So as you would expect, there is a heightened energy influencing the Earth and its occupants. The best way to balance this energy is to connect in some way your body with nature – though not in rubber soled footwear as it acts as an insulator. Ways include walking barefoot or just laying or sitting on the ground.

This new moon will augur in time to reflect on why we are here, and finding new ways as to how we can lead authentic lives, living to our full potential.

In terms of numerology, this February is the beginning of a new universal cycle of 9, it is a time to plant the seeds for the forthcoming cycle. The foundations set now create the foundations for the next nine months. Consider what are you passionate about, what are your goals and inner-visions?

So, February is the month to take the steps necessary to manifest your dreams and desires in the physical world. For all of us we are stepping into uncertainty. Shortly things that once seemed impossible will become a normal part of life.

Yes with the current news you may be a healthy sceptic as to whether all this is really happening, because it used to take decades before any real change was visible.

However, things are moving so quickly now, and this is reflected in what we have noticed over the last years in the speed and effectiveness of the Creating Harmony techniques. For us it is almost impossible not to be aware of the changes happening all around us, even if they make us feel uncomfortable.

Out of Your Comfort Zone
If seeking to expand and lead a life of harmony, the first thing to do is to take a step to move out of your comfort zone. This can express itself in several ways.

If you are being called to use and enhance your healing/creative gifts, trust your inner guidance. You might choose to enrich your gifts by taking a class, course or workshop that resonates with you.

Allow yourself to receive support, for many it is easy to forget to ask for support, believing instead we must do everything ourselves.

Finding an opportunity to be part of the community and be of service to humanity is also something that will greatly support your own evolution and expansion. This allows the mind to move out of the pattern of being self-involved, and redirects its awareness to the betterment of all - being part of the community.

A Last Comment on the Year of the Goat
Energetically, it will commence a much more favourable time than the past several years. Much of the chaos and disruption of these years will finally begin to dissipate. Both personally and globally, this will help everything to feel more stable.

The year of the Goat will be elevating humanity to higher states of consciousness in a far more balanced way, helping to rebuild our faith in one another. Creating the sense of community in the world we are choosing to create.

Author's Bio: 

Gregory Reece-Smith is a transformation coach, author, public figure and founder of Gregory's focus is on shifting the beliefs that limit individual’s lives and thus their world around them, including that of their organizations. Creating Harmony was founded to broaden the reach of this focus as real success only flows when beliefs no longer limit what is possible.

Gregory is an experienced transformation facilitator, both within organizations and with individuals. He conducts workshops at various locations around the world allowing participants to experience techniques to effect a shift and experience harmony. In December 2014 Divine Time Books published 'The Seven Secrets to Living in Harmony'. This is available in both printed and electronic form from Amazon.

Whether helping an entrepreneur start to build his business or the chief executive of a large international one, Gregory has always been helping people to develop and grow, allowing them to understand the situation from ‘the outside in’ rather than necessarily the one they perceived from the inside out. Helping to shift their own views, building confidence so that they can take action to identify their own desires and start taking steps toward their achievement and so success.

Gregory states: "My passion is helping ‘everyone’ to do this, particularly those such as myself who focused on the desired achievement to the detriment of everything else! My purpose is not to help you to cope, rather helping you to transform your understanding and the way you view your life. Helping you to create harmony in your life. The Harmonising Times is published monthly to assist all in doing just that."
