Pathway 17 – Al-Matin – Step by Step Persistence

There’s some pathways you come across where you know that there’s a life lesson involved and there’s pathways that show you just how far you’ve come. This was a bit of both for me.

“When you are guided to this pathway, take the opportunity to connect with the sacred qualities of practicality and deliberation, of small steps taken over a long period of time.”

I know there’s been a massive gap between the last pathway and this one and that’s because there has been a lot of learning and integration that has taken place in the time in between.

In the last pathway I talked a lot about shadow work and learning to take responsibility for the parts of yourself that are difficult to own. I feel that this pathway has taken me in a lot deeper and shown me how shadows work on a whole new level.

The pathway talks about step by step persistence. It says, “Love also demands this type of persistence, especially when a relationship has begun to mature beyond attraction, in to something deeper.”

This is what I’ve been exploring on a number of levels within myself since I last posted on my journey with the pathways. Self-love is something that I’ve been learning to cultivate for a long time and one of the biggest realisations was just how much deeper I needed to go with this.

I feel like my relationship with myself and also with my work has reached that level of maturity that the pathway talks about. I relate it to my own journey. When I first discovered energy healing, it led me to create an idea of who I wanted to be and the work I wanted to do. As I travelled on this path, I started becoming that woman I always saw myself to be and doing the work I wanted to do. I saw myself making the difference I wanted to make and I am achieving that.

I look upon that now as the honeymoon period when I started to fall in love with myself, or at least this idea of who I wanted to be. I put all my effort and energy in to pursuing this dream. I worked hard to become that person and find what needed to be healed.

As my relationship with myself and the love I have cultivated for myself and my work starts to mature and deepen, I find that there are challenges and it doesn’t get easier. The more we uncover about ourselves, the more we are challenged to love our imperfections. The more we are challenged, the deeper in to ourselves it takes us.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve really been paying attention to what’s happening in my life. I’m observing what I’m doing and saying. I’m observing what other people are doing and saying and I am learning a great deal. To be able to watch without judging, that is a labour of love. To love without attachment, that is an art in itself.

I find I’m not the woman I fell in love with. I’m not willing to be defined that way or any way but I’m finding I love myself anyway. Who I am, just like any long term relationship, has morphed and changed. It just is what it is and doesn’t need defining anymore. When that happens, that relationship really doesn’t look like what you thought it would. When you get to this place, you realise that kind of love takes strength. It takes persistence and courage. It takes a conscious decision that even though it isn’t what you thought it would be, you’re choosing to love it anyway.

My path over the last few weeks has been a rollercoaster on a personal and emotional level. I’ve had some really tough challenges and I’ve had to really make a decision about how I feel about myself and what I’m going to do for myself out of love for myself. It’s meant shutting down for a while. It’s meant standing my ground. It’s meant not allowing anyone else’s opinion to cloud how I feel. It’s meant reaching in for my own truth. It’s meant expressing, sharing and really pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

The detail of what I’m facing is irrelevant but suffice to say that there will always be people who try to bring you down. Some with their words and some with their actions. I say this because with the last pathway we talked about being responsible for ourselves and our projections. I’m also learning to discern my own truth and that means that rather than own everything, I’m recognising that people play out their own pain by throwing it at other people. This is what I mean when I say “To be able to watch without judging, that is a labour of love. To love without attachment, that is an art in itself.” I’m not willing to own someone else’s pain. I bless their journey but I know what’s mine and what’s not.

If you allow anything to cause doubt within yourself, you lose. When you love another, you trust them with your whole heart and you don’t doubt if they are true. When you love yourself, you must see it exactly the same way. I’ve learnt this and it’s unearthed a massive strength in me.

Persistence means that you have to fight for yourself. As an empath, I’m great at fighting for others but maybe not so good at fighting for myself. One of things that this pathway has shown me is just how much I love myself and love my work. When push comes to shove, if my ability to do my work is threatened, I will fight to the death and I will win. Nothing is going to bring me down and each time it tries to take me down, I come back a hell of a lot stronger. That’s because I know what I bring to this world is important. I’m fighting for me but I’m also fighting for all of those people who benefit from what I do.

I think the most beautiful thing that’s come alive for me is this fire that I know I’ve always had in me. I think as you reach in to spirituality, you almost believe that you need to put that fire out for the sake of love and light. That fire is courage in adversity. That fire is fighting for what you believe in. That fire is a relentless amount of self-assuredness. That fire must never be diluted, especially for those that are making a difference in this world.

None of this comes without persistence. None of this comes without a fight. None of this comes without being challenged. For me, I didn’t realise it but this is what I’ve been building step by step. I couldn’t see it at the time, but everything leads you to the moment where you’re at right now. Perhaps you need to be challenged for you to find your strength? Perhaps you need the darkness to come at you for you to overcome it?

I believe that this is all the alchemy of the Universe at work. Every action is a small step towards something greater. I sometimes forget there’s a bigger picture and get bogged down in the detail of it all but I’m human. It sometimes takes adversity to show you just how far you have travelled.

I take great strength from this pathway. It’s a long journey full of twists and turns, full of challenges but look how beautiful it can be. It’s designed to help you find yourself and if you can see that, you’ll keep at it.

Healing, Inspiration

To attract what you truly deserve, you have to feel that you deserve it

To attract what you truly deserve, you have to feel that you deserve it. Lately, I’ve been working to try and reach more people and that’s because I know I can really make a difference. I know there’s more to do and I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of this so I thought I’d share my thinking on this with you.

So I know that I have a real impact on people’s lives. I know that healing has helped make massive leaps for people’s careers. I’ve helped people come back from absolute rock bottom. I know that there’s some clients who literally trust me with their lives. I know that I’ve helped people avoid being on prescription drugs and even helped some people to come off them. I know I’ve helped people become confident and assertive. I know I’ve helped people overcome their fears of intimacy. I know I’ve helped people make sense of their spiritual journey and taught them how to work on themselves. I’ve seen people grow and blossom in front of my eyes. I’ve helped people to take charge of their own destiny and given them the perspective that’s helped them to believe that everything is possible.

The list is endless and you’d think that this would be enough evidence for me to believe in myself, right? Well, I’m going to be really honest here and say that I’ve only just started to understand the difference I make to people’s lives and I’m still battling with this. Empaths start on a much lower self-worth level to others in my opinion and it takes a lot to climb to that place where you truly believe in your gifts.

I had a lovely client come in the other day and something he said will stick with me forever. He said, “You can say that your work is rewarding and real satisfaction and that you make a real difference. People will remember you for what you did for them.” I tried to stay cool, but inside my heart dropped a little because I’d not taken that perspective. I usually just bumble along, shrug off the praise and get on with the job. I hadn’t really been listening or taking on board the nice things that people have said because perhaps I didn’t feel that I truly deserved it. I always focus on what else there is left to do and this made me stop and take stock and really appreciate what I have.

I know that when people tell me how much I’ve helped them with the sessions we’ve had together, I still have a hard time accepting the praise. It’s like I still can’t quite believe that I’m doing this.

It takes an awful lot to step up and accept all of who you are. I’m finding this as I battle my way through it. I talk a lot about working with the shadow aspects, but this is like another form of shadow that we also need to work with. Being able to see and accept what you’re putting in to world and the positives it brings is a beautiful thing. What happens is that we think of this as Ego and retreat in to being humble. I know this is what I’ve been doing and actually as a result, I’m not getting what I truly deserve because I don’t truly believe I deserve it.

This is one of the things that I’m trying to set about changing in myself because it’s part of my self-sabotage pattern and I know I’m fed up of living that pattern. In my bones, I feel that it’s time to step up and really be visible about the work that I do. I’m building my confidence. I’m getting better at accepting praise and I’m really listening and allowing the evidence to show me that this journey is well worth the graft. Look at what I can do – it’s magical but in the daily grind, the magic gets lost and forgotten. I want to be the person that still believes in the magic!

It can be overwhelming, but I’m learning that actually praise and kind words are how people are showing love and appreciation. I have to keep my heart open to this love. It doesn’t mean it’s going to my head and it doesn’t make me any less humble. It’s quite a difficult and new concept to me to be able to celebrate the good things that I have put in to the world and be proud of what I have achieved. It’s actually quite scary!

I’m conscious not to take anything for granted because I know where I came from. At the same time, I understand that if I am overwhelmed by it, I’m not in complete acceptance of it. It’s an interesting dilemma because the Ego is shouting “Be humble!” and at the same time you’re at the point where you can’t deny the evidence that’s put before you.

The trick is to define your own sense of identity because there is strength in having that sense of self. The Ego is the false identity and when it screams “Be humble!” at you, it is one of the ways in which it is holding you back and keeping you in the limitations that you’ve been taught.

I never really recognised this fully before now and working with it has been really challenging. I can say in my own mind I believe I make a difference and I’m starting to accept the evidence as real. Remember how deep set the ego ideas and beliefs are.

Defining your own sense of self takes time. I’ve been on this journey a while and I’m still finding false selves and as each mask falls away, it enables me to become more authentic, more real and more confident in my own definition of who I am.

I don’t want to be what I’m taught I have to be in this world. I don’t want to have limitations and restrictions placed on me.

I want to be able to share and celebrate the fullness of who I am. I want to believe that I can attract what I deserve. I want to believe that I truly deserve it.

If any of this resonates and you’re on the path trying to find ways to become who you came here to be, please get in touch with me. I love working with opening hearts and minds to all the possibilities!

 

99 Pathways of the Heart

99 Pathways of the Heart – Being an “Old Soul”

Pathway 15 – Al-Muqaddim – Preparing the way

“When you are guided to this pathway, take the opportunity to acknowledge the part of your being that feels “oldest,” and prepare the way for power to flow through your life.”

So this is the pathway that I have been exploring and it started with a healing transmission that I did at the beginning of November which started a profound shift for me in terms of accessing the oldest parts of my being.

Power is an interesting concept, particularly for me. Since I began on this journey, everything has been about stepping in to my power and continuously I’m finding newer ways to do this. I had some funny ideas about power when I first started on this journey, but as I’ve grown, I’ve come to see it as a positive force in my life.

The pathway really is about delving in to who we are. Our souls were created long before our bodies were and so that part of us has lived and acquired a great deal of wisdom.

One of the things I noticed as soon as I started work with this pathway was the number of references made in relation to me being an “old soul.” The first time I heard that phrase I must have been about 17 and I’d sneaked away to London for the day. I went to Camden Market and was mooching around. I met this guy who looked like an old sage and he was full of love and life. I can still see his face. We ended up chatting for a long while. He caught sight of the palm of my hand and asked if he could have a look. I felt a bit hesitant but I agreed. He told me I was a very old soul but it wouldn’t be later in life until I realised what that meant. I’d completely forgotten about this experience and now that I’m writing about it, it brings it all back for me.

The story came back to me because I’ve only just realised that what he set in motion has resulted in this here today and I believe he knew exactly what he was doing. In this work, I am fortunate enough to be deliberately and consciously setting in motion change for those I work with.

It made me look at how I work with people and what I’m able to access. The pathway drew me to connect even deeper within myself. We spend life trying to define who we are in this world when really who we are sits within our soul. Once we start connecting to that deeper sense, everything in life starts to move around us for us to be able to fully understand and return to that original soul self.

The pathway is about returning back to our original image and this journey here in this world is what creates the means for us to do this. Life teaches us the nature of who we really are on one level. I’m talking about going beyond that. I’m talking about being from a place that you can’t access in a physical way.

For those of you who have read previous blogs, you’ll know that I talk about “going home” and by that I mean that place where we came from that’s before this world or any other world. It always seemed separate from me until I started to understand how to channel it in this world. I have more of a sense of belonging now that I ever have.

The adventure with this pathway was to learn how to go deeper within and I have found that connecting with this idea that I have been this energy for much longer than the 39 years here on earth has had a profound shift in my energy. I understand power on a much deeper level and it really is having an impact on the way I’m choosing to live.

The whole world looks different to me as a result. I’ve always been seeking to find my place here on Earth and each time I find it, I find new levels of understanding it. It’s not possible, I don’t think, to understand your place here unless you also understand where your soul has been.

I’m blessed to be an old soul and it really is becoming a distinct part of who I am. It gives me a uniqueness as a person. It has also made me curious enough to delve deeper. All of this enquiry is for a reason – this I know for certain. Synchronistically with this pathway, I’ve discovered aspects of my ancestry that have helped me to understand my spiritual gifts on a much deeper level. When healing is literally in your blood, you have no choice but to accept that’s who you are. It’s beautiful and it’s taken my sense of belonging to another level which is great for me and for the world!

I think the most amazing aspect of this pathway though is allowing yourself to open up and letting the power of YOU flow through. The more you access this part of yourself, the more you are preparing the way for what’s to come next. One of the beautiful things about this pathway is that it opens you up to wonder. I always talk about potential and fulfilling that potential but this is on a whole other level. It’s like you’ve got back up and support and everything you need. It’s like you are that potential in every moment.

With this pathway being so profound and deep, I’m actually having a challenging time in articulating how it’s making me feel. Suffice to say though that like all the other ways, it is changing me for the better. The closest phrase to describe how I feel is that “I am really coming into my own.” That sort of captures it.

The feelings you get when you’re accessing this are out of this world. Phenomenal. I wish I could tell you how or what to do to get there because everyone needs to feel this. I’m still integrating and working that out but when I have that in a practical form, I will share it. There is a sense of pride that comes from knowing yourself in this way. It isn’t an ego thing, simply a sense of contentment and being sure about who you are. This may not make much sense but if you know, you know.

There is a whole other world and worlds within worlds to discover. Such is the beauty of connecting to yourself, your power, your lineage, your ancestry, and the source of all that power.

“This is love.

To fly toward a secret sky,

to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.

First to let go of life.

Finally, to take a step without feet.”

Rumi

Energy Updates

11:11 Energy Portal, 2018

If you keep seeing 11:11 and you understand it’s significance, keep reading. November has arrived and it feels like I’ve been waiting for this! It’s a really interesting time. The 11:11 portal has opened. We are now in full blown ascension energy. This wave has activated a new set of energies from within. I’ve certainly felt it and it is a lot deeper than previous waves.

October’s energy was pretty intense. One of the biggest themes was letting go. New Earth. New Me. It was as if we were preparing for something more intense. It has arrived although I don’t quite know what it looks like. I just know that its in the same place as I am.

I was fortunate enough to visit some sacred sights. On Halloween, I was at Avebury Stone Circle and then went on to Glastonbury Tor. It was a sacred and magical experience. Wednesday evening saw massive waves of energy coming in as the portals opened.

I felt quite blessed to be in Glastonbury, at the Heart Chakra of the world and spent quite some time with the energies there to cleanse and clear. I’m still processing everything that happened within on my journey and don’t quite feel ready to share as one piece of writing. There was far too much, but I feel the activations I received will have a major impact on my work.

The energies are driving us forward at the moment. My sense is that November is about clarity in terms of purpose and mission. November is also about being unafraid to change direction. It is about intuition and heart led intelligence. It also feels like it’s about being awake. I mean literally being awake – sometimes all night in my case!

The beauty of intuition is that there is no need for any physical and tangible evidence. When we intuit, it doesn’t matter what’s around us. All that matters is what is within. These energies are showing us that whatever is within us is clearly manifesting outside out us. The thing to grasp with this idea is that you have the power and you are able to drive and direct your reality. Tune in to your higher heart and let it guide you. The energy is making it easier for you to do this. You’ll find you have ideas, hunches and flashes of inspiration and you need to take action. You need follow the call.

As within, so with out is an age old idea that many have written about but there is some certainty and conviction about it’s truth in a completely different way now. It feels as if there is nowhere to hide with the intensity of how the truth is placed at the forefront of our awareness. We have no choice but to follow the signs. It isn’t about looking back at the breadcrumb trail that led you here. It’s about looking ahead to your next destination and lifting your foot to take that step.

Acknowledging the truth that we are seeing now gives us a justification for letting go. It is easier when you can see why you’re doing what you’re doing. The world looks and feels completely different when you are seeking truth. I certainly feel like I’ve been to the opticians and got new glasses because what I am seeing around me appears completely different. It is like we are being installed with a completely new operating system. I feel like the old one has been wiped out.

I feel very much that I am feeling my way through a new way of being. People I know are feeling like complete strangers to me at the moment and it is disorientating but I can feel that something is definitely changing. I’ve often said that this world is a simulation. It is a way of experiencing your true nature and delivering your soul’s mission in a physical way so that you understand the wholeness of being. This simulation is likened to the Matrix and I’m definitely feeling that analogy with these energies.

This is a time of massive energy shifts and it is important to harness this and use it to drive you forward. Seek clarity on your purpose and mission by simply asking for it. There are so many signs if you’re looking. The sky tells you stories. Nature gives you messages. Pay attention to what is happening around you and stay open to change course at any moment.

Yes it is disorientating but don’t let that phase you. It feels like a very special time and learning to harness the energy and allowing it to direct you feels like the right thing to do. It feels like this update has been a bit of a mish mash of ideas with no coherence but that tells you a lot about what’s going on! I’m still processing, but I wanted to get something out because it may help some of you.

 

99 Pathways of the Heart

99 Pathways of the Heart – Maintaining and nourishing yourself

“When you are guided to this pathway, take the opportunity to feel a very steady yet powerful state of awareness in your being that maintains and nourishes you and others.”

This is the pathway that I’ve been reflecting on this past week and it is one that presents plenty of challenges for me. Embodying a steady state is something that I have been working on for as far as I can remember. For me, there is a juxtaposition here with being a free spirit.

This pathway requires pulling yourself inwards whilst you experience life. Being a free spirit, it’s easy for my heart to be called elsewhere. I want to talk about this because for me it is one the most challenging aspects of who I am as a person. This is where the conflict lies and I’m noticing that it is how my power escapes sometimes.

I know I have this immense reservoir of love within me and the capacity to nourish and give to others. This pathway takes me further in to using this source to help maintain myself and it is this very thing that I have been trying to do for a long time. This pathway has helped me to uncover a whole other level and given me an awareness and perspective that goes deeper.

For those of us that are empathic, it’s very easy to relegate our own needs in order to serve others. We think that this is why we came here – to serve. That’s part of it but not the whole of it.

This pathway really made me look at the way I give and the expectations that I have created from others around me. When I began to pull it back and go within, what struck me is how very little I have given myself. With a reservoir so large, it’s almost as if I think can survive on a lot less from the pot so rather than taking from it, I put in to it. This brings up feelings of guilt and feeling selfish. At the same time, I look around me and notice that perhaps I feel this more because of the belief that I came here to serve. There are deep set emotions here about worthiness attached to this and whether I deserve to take when I can give so much. It became obvious to me that there was very little balance in my life when it came to this.

It’s been a really challenging week and working with this pathway has actually made me feel really sad. I have to be raw and honest about how I feel. That’s what this space is for and it needs to be expressed.

The pathway also reminds me that I must not overextend myself. This is what occurred to me and I can see clearly where I am doing this. I can blame being an empath to some extent but the truth of it is that I have plenty of fleeting whims and distractions all created by my ego to prevent me from embodying this state. I can see that very clearly. I realised that I can’t hide behind anything anymore. Especially not when it has been shown to me this clearly. When you realise how little you have given yourself, it brings up anger and resentment and I’ve had to spend a lot of time working with this. I’ve allowed this and I forgive myself. I can change and that is what I am doing. Easy statements to make but if you’ve ever gone through this, you’ll know the raw emotion it brings up.

This idea of sacrifice comes with this type work and it’s something that keeps coming up for me to clear away. The idea that being in service should be at the expense of your own self simply isn’t true. I am entitled to a life just like everyone else. There’s a paradox here as the “service” is actually what I have chosen to do. It’s my own path I’m creating so it is as much for me as it is for humanity. The ego makes you choose one or the other and we are conditioned to believe that choosing service to others is the better thing to do. In actual fact, we can have both but it takes a lot of unlearning which I am still learning to do.

When I call the ego out on this, the contradictions are so very obvious. There is so much pain in saying goodbye to old ways of being. I’ve always tried to be conscious of what my ego is doing and exploring the pathways has brought up a lot of wounds that need to be healed within myself.

It isn’t easy getting the balance within yourself between serving others and serving yourself. We are brought up with conditioning that tells us that putting ourselves first is selfish. We’re taught a linear way of thinking that suggests that if we think about ourselves first, it means that we don’t care about others. It’s difficult to shift to a way of thinking that enables you to be equal to others and there’s a perception that to consider yourself equal equates to being egotistical. It gets really complicated because you can think this logically in your head but when the feelings of guilt show themselves, your heart gets pulled straight back. This is what I’m grappling with.

I’m always banging on about self-worth and I’m a work in progress but what I am learning here has come at a critical time for me. My life is interesting because of the demanding nature of my work. I get phone calls and text messages all the time asking me all sorts of things. I’ve always felt the need to answer and help and I don’t regret helping. I do sometimes resent the demands and that’s me being really honest. I take full responsibility for this now where in the past I’d have blamed others. I’ve created and met these expectations without even thinking about it and it’s difficult to undo without experiencing emotional turmoil. Meeting demands is what I’ve been looking at taking a step back from because there is a line where my work ends and I begin and that can get blurred very easily. Even though boundaries have been set, a plea for help is a plea for help and my heart isn’t one that can ignore it easily. So it’s been an emotional time because for each time that has happened, I’ve had to ask myself who I am putting first. I’m learning to deal with the emotion that comes with it and I can tell you it isn’t easy but it is necessary. This is a spiritual lesson that needs to be learned.

A strong feeling of discomfort comes from taking a step back. It’s like going against what your heart is telling you when you don’t reply to a plea for help but I had to explore this feeling for myself. It feels as if people are relying on me. It feels that there is an urgency for them that I am ignoring and that somehow makes me a bad person. Again, this linear way of thinking is one I’m learning to undo because a lot of that conditioning simply isn’t true.

What I have realised with this pathway is that I go deep and I do have a lot to give. My priority has become to maintain that within myself. Embodying a steady state of awareness and power is important but I didn’t realise how important it was for maintaining and nourishing myself. I thought I was doing that and I know now that I am not doing enough of it. The reason for this is the raw emotion, the guilt, the anger, the feeling selfish that I’m still learning to overcome. And all this just to feel equal to others! It’s mind blowing because I thought I was overcoming myself in terms of self-worth but there’s always more I need to be shown and more I need to do.

It’s interesting because although I do take a lot of time for myself and I switch off when I have to, I’ve developed some sticky habits when it comes to work. It’s the belief that work overrides everything because of it’s nature. It doesn’t though. What overrides everything is my state of being and my ability to maintain and nourish myself and I’m starting to look at that as often as I can in response to meeting the worlds demands on me. I’m taking it one moment at a time and seeing how it feels to choose me.

Just when you think you’ve got the self-worth thing down, the universe throws you a massive curve ball. With things changing as rapidly as they are, this is a very valuable lesson that the universe is giving me. I’ve noticed how quickly it can become about everything else. I’ve noticed how my free spirit slips away under the mask of empathy.

Old beliefs and old habits are dying hard. I’m working hard on taking the shame out of “I’m putting myself first.” It’s one I think a lot of us can relate to. If nice people finish last, I’m not ok with that and so I’m determined to prove that wrong.

I am just as important as everyone else and I’m determined not to forget it!

Healing, Reiki Training

Does Distance Healing really work?

Does Distance Healing really work?

Curious about distance healing? Well let me tell you how it works!

Everything is made of energy – that’s a scientifically proven fact. Particle physics says that each particle can positively or negatively influence it’s immediate surroundings. That’s why when you have Reiki, it’s these waves of energy that are having an impact on your energy field to create a sense of wellbeing.

Now remember we are all particles of energy. We are all made of the same stuff and connected to the same life force energy. Energy doesn’t have physical boundaries, nor does it have any time boundaries. This is why we are always connected to our past, present and our future. Our mind can navigate these places and time travel between them without any physical movement. This is magic and in essence if we can recognise that we only have to generate positive thoughts for good things to happen, then we’re on the way to something really powerful.

Our physical body is the densest bit of our energy field and this is why it is visible. It is made of particles of solid matter. Things and people are made of this and so that’s why the mind recognises them as “real” objects.

We also have energy around us. This is the auric field. It’s the energy ball that surrounds us and it is filled with our own personal energetic vibe. When you meet someone, this is the first thing that you’ll sense even though it isn’t a tangible and visible thing.

Places and people all have their own energetic signature. When you walk in to a place, you immediately sense whether it feels good or not based on it’s energy. We all have this ability and we can use it inform us what feels right or not.

Thoughts generate energy. We only have to think about bad memories for us to start feeling low, even if we are nowhere near the person that may have caused them. This is because what we have generated is charged with the energy of emotion. For more on releasing emotional blocks – click here!

How does distance healing work?

Energy has an impact regardless of time, space and physical proximity. The premise for distance healing is simply that we are all connected to the same source of energy and so therefore to each other. Energy follows intent and so you can energetically connect with anyone, anywhere and send them positive energy and healing vibes simply by making the intention to.

Distance healing is a bit more than that though. It can be just as intense as having a Reiki session in person. You can watch this video if you want to see someone’s first experience of Reiki. It’s really old from when I first started out, but definitely worth taking a look at. Click here to take a look!

I’m connecting to your energy in the same way as I would if you were here. I’m channelling the energy in the same way that I would if you were here. The energy is working in the same way as it would if you were here.

There is no separation between you and I in the healing space. For most people who have distance Reiki, they feel everything as if they would in person and this is always a surprise for them!

I want to encourage more people to try distance Reiki because it’s an experience!

It’s definitely worth trying!

If you’re up for it, give me a shout!

Weekly Ascension Energy Update 20th September, 2018

Weekly Ascension Energy Update

Has it been chaotic for you too? Ascension energy this week has had us rockin’!

The last few weeks have been what feels like an uprising of the old coming to the surface to be cleared and there is a hell of a lot of shit to be cleared. The ascension energy is throwing us around so fast that we don’t know whether we are coming or going at the moment. All we know is that we are NOT who we used to be and we will not settle for what we used to.

There’s a lot to take in and for many of us, the last couple of weeks have taught us where we stand. There’s been some tensions but finally we can acknowledge that it is OUR own journey that we need to be responsible for. Everything else is needing to take a back seat at the moment.

Sometimes in life we need others to hold space for us. Just to listen. Just to be there. The ascension energies have been rampant and what many are finding is that their NEED is not being met by the people around them. This leads to a conscious decision to go solo. It has also led to many of us taking a step back and really beginning to evaluate the connections and what they add to our lives and our sense of wellbeing.

It’s no bad thing all this taking a step back. It’s been so intense this year that we haven’t had the time to ponder and reflect. As a result, we’ve carried elements of the old in to the new and we’re really starting to understand which relationships are actually maintenance work and therefore draining our energy.

September’s Energy

September is the holding space and use it to tie up loose ends and cut loose the straggly bits. My advice is do this with no apologies. Yes there will be casualties as you undertake a massive cull but this is all to bring you in to alignment with who you are and where you’re heading. All of this is about you now.

A lot of us are reaching that crossroads where we need to choose between ourselves and others. Choose YOU! Period.

It’s tumultuous to say the least but now is not the time to settle for what was. Now is the time to create. The ascension energies are ripe for it. We have the Equinox on the 22nd and a full moon on the 24th. What we create now is what will harvest for us.

A friend of mine pulled a card for me the other day and it was Cornucopia. I think it captured what’s to come. The harvest really is on it’s way but this bit of the journey will take balls.

The situations that are created for us to be able to experience this shedding mean that we have to stop being pansies and grow a pair. For empaths, the most difficult bit is this. We can go all gung ho cutting people loose but our hearts will always get called back to helping and this becomes the trap.

Tips for getting through these energies

My advice is CHOOSE YOU. Period.

On a practical level, start evaluating each and every relationship for what it is. Is there a balance? Is there a fair exchange? Are you giving willingly or do you feel like you’re being taken from?

If there is balance and you’re getting as much as you give, keep it. Your bones will tell you what and who doesn’t feel right and you take responsibility for dealing with that. It’s not that you’re cutting people out forever. It’s simply right now you need all your focus and energy for yourself. If we don’t do this, we have to deal with the feeling of being left behind. That’s a low vibration and certainly not one that we want to be in if we are creating our future.

Everything is temporary. Nothing is forever. This is the big shake up and it’s time to put your money where your mouth is in a lot of ways. Times will test us, but that inner knowing will never let us down.

I would even go so far as to say that the next couple of weeks are pivotal and we need to be really mindful and aware of what our energy is doing. Pay attention to what’s within. Pay attention to what surrounds you. If there is a mismatch, do what you need to in order for there to be balance.

If all else fails and you can’t see the wood for the trees, one of my favourite tools to use is Raw Black Obsidian. This will bring anything negative to the surface quickly and enable you to deal with it at the root. You may find it unleashes chaos but if you’re craving change and you know it needs to be in your face for you to do something about it then Obsidian is the catalyst.

Stay present and just watch it all unfolding for you. Look at the bigger picture. Play the long game.

We’re in exciting times and the light downloads are intense and heavy. Keep riding it and if you need help, you know I’m here!

Energy Update 4th September 2018

Well here we are and it’s been heavy and intense the last week. There is a hell of a lot of crap being pushed up to the surface and we are healing and doing more healing and continue healing!

Physically, the symptoms have been a thick or foggy head including migraines and headaches. Ears have been ringing. Dizzy spells have been common. Generally a feeling of being ungrounded and uprooted.

With this, there’s been unrest. A lot of emotional restlessness. An impatience for things to start moving again and an unwillingness to back down. Sound familiar?

It really is taking it’s toll this week. I know on a personal level, I’ve had to take some time out to just shut down and recalibrate the systems! This intensity will continue although the flow of it seems to be getting easier as we work through the lessons.

It feels as if we just have to master letting go of expectations. That’s pretty difficult because to manifest what we want, we have to expect that it will materialise. What I’m talking about is getting yourself in to focus and in to a headspace where the outcome is irrelevant. This period of limbo is about building full trust and faith and allowing yourself to be led.

The Universe always has your highest interests at heart and the stagnancy that we have felt of late has created a wishy washy kind of energy. It’s important that we don’t stay in this for too long. It has been heavy and it has been difficult to keep moving. More than ever, we are being required to push ourselves a little bit further.

You’ll have noticed in the midst of all this that you are starting to get really clear on what resonates with you and what doesn’t. It should be starting to become really clear to you what needs dropping from your life because it seems as though the triggers are everywhere.

The thing I am finding the most difficult at the moment is the balancing act between ourselves and other people. We have to choose to put ourselves first.

In the spiritual journey, there will be times when you feel so far apart in your way of thinking from those that you are closest to but know that that is ok. Your truth will continue to evolve and as it does, you may find that you judge those with a different perspective, or you feel judged by them. This is all experience and it is teaching us real detachment with love. It can be difficult to stay in love and compassion with those closest to you if they can’t understand your need to process in a different way to them. This is all part of working out your place in the world.

We are coming to the cross roads and the new moon on the 8th should be bringing us some unexpected surprises. My feeling is that we are heading towards having everything we want but something tells me that it won’t look anything like we planned it to be. Therefore this time is a time of opening up and acceptance of things as they are.

There is a great deal of courage required as our old belief systems fall away. It can feel as if the world is breaking off in fragments right before your eyes. It is the collapse of the old ways of thinking.

If there is one thing that helps me more than anything it is holding on to this affirmation.

I AM LOVE. I CAME HERE TO BE LOVE AND BE LOVED.

This is all. Just keep remembering this and you’ll ride this storm. New Moon New Start is  how I’m feeling the energies at the moment so I’m using this time to get things in order. It’s time to really start thinking seriously about where things are going and how you can direct them.

Why am I feeling so wierd? Energy Update 27th August, 2018

Why am I feeling so wierd? That’s been the theme in the healing room this week and if you’re asking yourself the same question, the answer is in the energies that are around at the moment.

It’s like a dead weight and everything that we were trying to get off the ground in June and July seems to be moving ever so slowly. There’s been planets in Retrograde. Mars and Mercury have both gone direct now and there’s been a full moon, 3 Eclipses, solar flares and Geomagnetic storms not to mention the meteor shower.

So when you take all of that in to consideration, of course you’re feeling wierd. We are all connected to the heartbeat of the Universe and when it moves and shifts, we feel it too.

The energies have been dense and heavy. Like a dead weight. Nothing seems to be moving. After much unrest, it’s like we are covered in a blanket. A littler period of hibernation is kind of what is happening right now and hopefully we will open our eyes to an easier and lighter September.

It’s not been an easy 6 weeks energetically and a lot of us have felt upheaval and restlessness. For some it’s been time out, for others it’s been working through the energies. However it has been for you, you’ve felt it. The lethargy and the numbness has been a theme for all. There have been sparks of clarity followed by periods of massive uncertainty.

Things are certainly changing though and we are feeling it. WE as a collective are changing rapidly and there is a whole movement towards letting go. This “new me” stuff is really starting to take shape and there’s yet more layers to shed. All of the conditioning, fears and limiting beliefs seem to be rising to the surface for us to see more clearly and as always, there is healing to be done!

It will settle, but the pace, depth and intensity of the energies is something that we are going to have to start getting used to because it feels like it’s going to stay like this for a while. It feels like we’re being pushed and shoved in to places that are creating expansion for us.

I think it just got interesting!

The Rise of the Divine Feminine

The Power of the Divine Feminine

It’s been an interesting week this week as the energies seem to be ramping up. I remember towards the end of last year we were talking about the rise of the Divine Feminine and wowzers has that had an impact.

I don’t know if its just me and because I work with women, but there really does seem to be some fine tuning going on with the way that we are connecting with the Divine Feminine. It’s causing a bit of a clash between the different aspects of this energy.

On the one hand we have the softness, vulnerability and opening. On the other hand we have the wildness, the strength and the power of Femininity.

My view is that we are learning to be unashamedly ourselves and embrace whatever combination of these qualities that we hold. We are learning to harness and use these energies for ourselves and it is enhancing our power to create.

More than ever over the last few weeks in the healing room have seen a rise in the Kundalini energy and I’m working with more and more women who want to clear sexual trauma and explore their creative life force energy. The power of this energy for healing us in incredible and learning to use it is even more incredible.

Where the #metoo movement gave rise to an awareness of the power imbalance, the residue of this has been a real awakening of power for women as a collective. There really is a “Don’t take no shit” attitude at the moment and it isn’t directed at the opposite sex. There is a balance to be gained between feminine and masculine forces within us and it feels like we have to come full circle and experience these energies for us to come to balance within ourselves.

When you’re nailing it, it feels like intense creative flow, passion and alignment combined with purpose, intuition and what I can only describe as a recognition of our own resilience and “sturdiness.” Above and beyond anything, although this is a spiritual process the impact is in a very human way and it is helping us to navigate between the different dimensions and realms.

This creates movement and that’s been reflected in the shifts that clients are experiencing as a result of sessions. There really is a big change in the air and a redressing of balance when it comes to power.

Bring it on I say!!!
