New Year of the Red Fire Monkey

Welcome to the wonderful inspiring 8 February, when we celebrate a New Moon and New Year.




Energy of Now:  Number 9,  Positive Monkey,  Negative Monkey, Expansion in Monkey Year

Happy New You

Playful Friendships  One of the wonderful qualities of Monkeys is their ability to gather with friends and play around and have fun.  Monkeys are playful, intelligent and curious.  I love the playful energy of Jutta and Koko in the above picture. What animals could they be?  Could they be monkeys, dragons, eagles, galactic aliens or what?  What are they saying to you with their lovely smiles? The picture is a very Monkey picture.  It seems the right picture to start this Alchemical Blog with.  I think I captured something special in this shot.  Both are martial artists.  Both are teachers.  Both have lovely Souls and Spirits.  Both are my new friends here in Tao Gardens, Thailand, where Jutta is a Senior Teacher.  I am enjoying learning and growing with my new friends.  Thank you Jutta.  Thank you Koko.

Welcome Welcome in your energetic life force with this wonderful New Moon and Monkey New Year.  Welcome in your passion, your livelihood and your Self.  Welcome to great energy, great belief, great sensations, great realisations, great breakthroughs and great moments in time.  Welcome to your intelligence, your acute sensitivity and vulnerability.  Welcome to the great passions in you and for you. Welcome to the first New Moon in 2016.

Cold Weather  Here, in Thailand, we have many red lanterns up in the streets, flower festivals, happy faces and delicious food to share and celebrate the Chinese New Year.  I have personally experienced climate change here.  This year, Thailand reported snow for the first time.  I have been wearing my winter clothes here! This has been a shock to many people studying here.   I see a lot of colds, coughs, fever and illness around me with this weather change.  There is no heating in the apartments as this is not a place for winter.  I wonder how many people died during this cold spell.  I pray for them and the loved ones they left for them. This climate change is the effect of man interfering with Mother Nature; and as we all know; there are always consequences.

This we know; the earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Chief Seattle.


A Darkness There is so much darkness out there consuming our Souls and Spirit fed by lower worldly emotions; such as greed, animality, jealousy, stupidity, hatred, fear and anger.  These emotions create a ripple effect of doubt, fear and guilt.  They create behaviour that is unkind, cruel and wicked.  We see the need to strike someone down just for the fun of it.  We see the stronger killing the weaker.  We see someone taking another persons reputation and spoiling it.  We see a world ruled by pleasure in all advertising.  We see a world inflicting evil actions, words, thoughts and deeds driven by the need to win at all costs.  We see a world where all these emotions cause so much stress, anxiety, worry, frustrations and dis-empowerment.  In the newness of time let us look at the darkness around us and in us.

love respect loveA Newness  We enter the New Moon with the energy of Aquarius which loves to take care of Man, share knowledge and expand ones Spirit and Soul through respect for Nature and Life.  We greet you with your awakening, your consciousness and your inner knowing. There is a wash over like a wave or waterfall that cleanses you leaving you vulnerable, tired and needing rest. It is like you are burning inside out and you are.  You are being cleansed inside out.  This is all good. It is all part of the newness revealing itself.  It is saying to you: “Do not worry.  All this will pass.  You will survive. You are protected.  You are safe.”  Allow your Alchemical Resurrection of Your True Self.  Allow you to be you.  Allow you to evolve.  Allow your human revolution.  Allow your challenges to help you through your challenges!  Allow both good and bad.  Allow your optimum quantum transformation this year starting with this New Moon and Year of the Fire Monkey.

Radio  In my Radio interview with Sara Troy, which aired for a week, I talk about the Energy of Now and various  emotions we go through.  Let’s make an effort to be more that we ever thought possible. You can download the stream: 

Magnitude of Life2016


999This year, 2016, (2+0+1+6=9), is a 9 year.

Monkey is the 9th Chinese Animal in Chinese Astrology.

9 is 3×3=9.  It is the all powerful 3×3.  It is triple 3 (333).

1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8=36           36=3+6=9

9 represents many positive things.  It is Completions. Fulfilment.  Ambition.  Beginning.  Ending.  Celestial Number.  Angelic Number.  Compassion.  Deep Awareness.  Giving and Receiving. Exchange of Energy.  Generosity.  Celestial Power.  Angelic Power.  Allowing.  Blending.  Attainment. Supreme Spiritual Power.  Foundation.  Truth. Tolerance. Expansion.  Expanded Awareness.

9 represents many positive actions to take to achieve what you want.  It is Letting Go in order to Move Forward.  It is Reflecting on your past to make this year the most powerful and successful of your life.  It is the time to observe your life and be mindful of your thoughts, actions and speech.  It is the Number of Communication helping you to express with confidence and courage.  It is a number of expression and action.  It causes and calls for shifts in thinking and action – a time for change that serves and empowers. 9 is a calling from across the distant shore asking you to look at your tears and see your fears and know your fears will pass away. It is a calling from afar that indicates a new beginning and a new journey.  How has your journey begun in 2016?

Examples of Numerology of Nine (9)

  1. Obama’s full name equals out to 999 (Heart – Vowels 9; Expression – Consonant 9; Personality – Heart & Expression 9).
  2. Hebrew Nine is Pure Intelligence (eight was Perfect Intelligence ). Also represents Truth, since it reproduces itself when multiplied.
  3. Kabbalistic Nine symbolizes Foundation.
  4. Hindu Nine is the number of Agni, Fire. The square of the nine forms the mandala of eighty-one squares and leads to, and encloses the Universe.
  5. Pythagorean Nine The nine is the limit of all numbers, all others existing and coming from the same. i.e.: 0 to 9 is all one needs to make up an infinite amount of numbers.
  6. 9Oya’ Nine, daughter of Yemaya, Great Sea Mother, has 9 children (Egungun and four sets of twins). Her number is 9.  Her other symbols are Fire and Water.  She holds a sword of truth or a machete and a flywhisk.  The Water Buffalo is her animal totem. Oya is an Orisha. She is a Warrior Goddess and is very fiery.  She hates lies and deceit and will strike you down if you lie to her. She is the Oracle of Change. She changes energy wherever she is.  She is a passionate bringer of change and loves ceremony and rituals.  She clears the old way to make room for the new way.  She watches over the newly dead and moves them on to the light.  She is between life and death.  Goddess of Spirit Communication.  Goddess of Clairvoyance.  Goddess of psychic abilities, intuition and rebirth.  She is Great Mother of the Elders of the Night (Witches).  She is wife to Shango, God of Thunder, who had 3 wives Oshun and Oba. A good business woman she is shrewd with money. She forgets nothing.

Allow 9  Allow more knowledge into your life.  Let the newness of knowledge fill you with music and hope.  Let the eagerness to learn and to be more than you  fill you with inner contentment and joy.  Allow the concepts you evolve within, take shape; and in the experiencing, is your knowing.  Allow your communicating with words and actions express who you are.  Allow your relating to others to evolve.  Do something amazing. Gift a flower to someone to express your appreciation to them.  Give a hug from your pure heart.  Embrace another with a nose kiss.  Allow your own evolvement and innovation in your communicating.

MONKEYS, in Chinese mythology, are metal & water creatures.

METAL is connected to GOLD. Monkey, Chicken and Dog are Metal.

WATER is connected to WISDOM and DANGER. Be careful and do not rush or leap suddenly to make changes in your life.

The Chinese New Year is a time to start afresh, like the New Moon. It is a time of celebration with family and friends in China.  It is a time to gather and to forgive and to bless one another.

Negative Monkey

Three Monkeys and a Bag   I watched three clever Monkeys quietly approach a lady resting with her bag at the Monkey Forest in Bali.  Two concentrate on her bag. One sits on her shoulder and pulls at her bag.  Another tugs at her bag.  You can see the older Monkey showing the young Monkey what to do quietly.  Monkey energy is naughty, fun and light.  It can also be annoying, controlling and hard, taking what does not belong to it. Then they sit looking innocent.  Monkeys are good at causing trouble and getting themselves out of trouble with an innocent look and easy charm.

Negative Monkey is restless, rebellious, aggressive, intrusive, controlling, stubborn and tricky. Monkey like taking risks and jumping from one thing to another. They can cause chaos and abandon ship at will! They can be quick and change their minds easily.

Monkey can be lazy and strategic in waiting to take an opportunity away from you and make it their own. They can be suspicious, manipulative and egotistical.

Very competitive, Monkey likes to show off and be snobbish. I have felt the Monkey snobbishness personally and it is not nice.  However, because I am aware of this trait in Monkey, I let it ride over my lovely golden feathers.

When I watch Monkeys I am always fascinated by their selfishness, arrogance, self-importance and vanity. The fascination always turns to admiration at their intelligence and vast knowledge. However it is important for Monkey not to become too egotistical, arrogant and rude and disrespectful to self and others!

MONKEYMonkeys are aggressive and confrontational and need to learn to channel their negative traits and habits to positive to stop Monkey’s downward spiral and hatred for life.

Monkeys need to learn to think before acting so quickly and abruptly. They need to learn a bit of patience. I have never seen a patient Monkey; no that is wrong; I have seen Monkeys wait patiently and grab hats and glasses off people with the speed of light and lightning. Not funny when it happens to you.

As mentioned earlier, Monkeys can be competitive, making them jealous and envious. He needs to be the leader and the top of the class. He loves to be on top of the Christmas tree.

He loves to leap from tree to tree, from place to place, taking whatever he fancies without asking. The need to be the best and the centre of an operation can be overbearing and lead to chronic illness. Be careful and mindful of this restlessness in 2016.

MONKEY1Monkey can be manipulative using their social friendly behaviour to get what they want from you and others. He has very poor opinion of others under his cheerful exterior.  He feels superior to others around him and sometimes does not understand why he has to be around them! He really feels superior. Watch a Monkey move and watch the arrogance, the superior air, the superior arrogance and the superior way Monkey outsmarts everyone with fast movement, sound and mind. Observe the disdain and vanity. Monkey is sly and can be great liars.

They seek a peace that they never get as they are constantly restless and searching for something new to do and to occupy their minds. This restless in Monkey affects the Mind, Body and Spirit. Monkeys can take risks of all kinds – that affect loyalty in business, finances, relationships, and social interactions.

They can talk a bit too much and tire people out by talking too much. Monkey will fall easily in love and get tired easily and look for another easily forgetting the one behind. Monkey is not a stable personality. Monkey likes to get the best deal. They can be insecure and depressive. They can be tricksters, erratic and mischievous.

ENOUGH of the Negative let us look at the Positive.

Positive Monkey

bali monkeyPositive Monkey is friendly, inclusive, inquisitive, creative, inventive, intelligent, agile, pro-active and action-taking.

They are wonderful at inspiring others and making them believe in their dreams and gathering followers and inspiring others to lead their own individual dreams.

They believe in everything they do and they do what they do because they believe in it. It does not always work and it surprises them as much as those around.

They lift themselves up and focus on a new project and a new venture. They are never down for long. Monkey is high spirited and social. They are cheerful, charismatic, and happy. This draws people to them and helps to get them out of any rut they may find themselves in.

They are always ready to stand up and fight for what they believe in. Monkeys are good at taking action with confidence and courage. They have a fearless streak that is contagious and inspires great change and great adventure. They are intelligent, ferocious and optimistic.

motherChildThey are great motivators, quick witted and quick with their minds. All the Monkeys I know are sociable – when it suits them. They need quiet private moments.  Watch a Monkey and you will see it sit alone away from others or sit alone with others around it.  It will not interact.  It is thinking, relaxing and resting.  It is feeding itself with silence and nourishing its mind.

They have great leadership skills and love to create an EMPIRE around them.  They love to teach and show off. And they do teach beautifully as they are so full of knowledge.

They love family and want to be seen as inventive and inquisitive and loving as a child.  They love freedom and family at the same time and in the same way. They are fiercely loyal to those they love.  When Monkey loves Monkey loves.  When Monkey does not love Monkey does not love.

Monkeys are good ACTION takers. They work with the Energy of Now – Energy of Today – the Energy of THIS DAY.  Living and enjoying the present if very important to the alert loving Monkey.

Monkey is active and loves movement and moving from one thing to another. Monkeys love social gatherings where they like to shine and be the centre of attention. They are gregarious, happy, jovial, romantic, and optimistic and can be caring. What Monkey loves Monkey loves.

Monkeys are great communicators and great orators. They make great leaders. They love to nurture and to build and support. In a position of power they will empower those who work with them and for them.

happy new year of monkeyMonkeys can be great strategists.  Monkeys love reading and improving their knowledge and being up to date on technology, innovations and everything that is going on in the world. They love to be cultured, educated and explore new ways and new things.

Monkeys are diplomatic and charming. Monkeys are lucky and always find a way back on top. They also know the ‘right’ people to help them get back on top. Their intelligence and quick mind helps them in tricky situations.

Monkey can laugh at him/herself and this ability helps pull Monkey through tight situations.

Monkey loves making money, spending money and living the high life – and it suits them. His friendly charm makes him a great strategist and a great risk taker to be with.

An inquisitive mind always keeps Monkey alert and alive and awake. Monkey loves living life passionately and fully.  They are daring, inquisitive and social.  They are good at multi-tasking and are good with their hands.

Mantak and ToksToday, I am in Thailand with the Legend and Great Grand Master Mantak Chia, doing his Winter Retreat, a blessing from the Immortals.  I am learning a lot here. I would recommend you coming to share this space and wisdom with him.

I know two fabulous Monkeys:  Mantak Chia and Roger Hamilton. They are both family men. They have built around them an Empire.  They have a wonderful gathering of people around them.  They are both intelligent, powerful, handsome, charming and empowering.  They give with joy and charm.  They are excellent teachers and motivators.  They love empowering others with their knowledge.  When they love they love. When they do not love they do not love.  I have also experienced them being strict and true to their mission.

I personally love and admire them.  Both men have brought something wonderful into my life and have helped me tremendously.  I have been to both their beautiful empires and met their family: Roger in Bali and Mantak in Thailand. Both received me with warmth, love and respect.

Thank you Roger Hamilton.  Thank you Mantak ChiaMore on Mantak Chia
