99 Pathways of the Heart

99 Pathways of the Heart

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.

Energy Updates

Ascension Energy Update 18th February, 2019

This is your ascension energy update for this week and oh my does it feel like the ground is moving from under our feet! Before I begin this update, I just want to say that my updates are NOT astrological. They’re purely based on tuning in to the frequencies. I include what I know may be happening with the moon and planets if it’s relevant. Mostly, I’m sharing what I’m experiencing as well as collective themes that emerge from the healing room that are tied in to these themes.

I’ve not done an update for a while as I’ve been processing this very heavy energy that’s around. Those of you who follow my Facebook posts know that I’ve been keeping an eye on the Schumann Resonance. Check out this link: https://www.disclosurenews.it/en/schumann-resonance-today-update/

The spikes have been noticeable as the frequency rises and I’ve been feeling it all quite physically. It’s worth checking out if you’re feeling a bit odd and wondering what it is that’s setting you off!

Energy wise, as always, there’s a lot going on. Although the last few weeks have felt quite still and stagnant. There’s been a feeling of “nothing seems to be happening.” Hold on tight because the energy is taking us higher and higher.

There’s a full moon Tuesday 19th and the energy is building around that. It doesn’t feel as intense as previous moons. With full moon energy, usually the shit that needs to clear comes up and hits you square in the face. This moon has a gentler energy. It’s calmer and it feels like a real magnetic pull towards something bigger.

One of themes we’ve been exploring in the healing room has been growth. Growth happens on a number of levels. Emotional and spiritual growth is what I support people with. It’s been noticeable just how much people are starting to become aware of energy and it’s impact on daily life. I’ve been doing this kind of work for the last 5 years and I’m really seeing the landscape changing in terms of awareness and expansion on a spiritual level. Everyone knows about energy – regardless of whether they believe in it or not. It’s becoming a mainstream thing to talk about energy and that can only be a good thing.

This weeks energy is about expansion and I feel that really strongly. The thing to remember about expansion is that when it’s happening, the first thing we do is resist. This makes us contract (not expand) and there’s a certain amount of pressure that falls on us in order for us to get to a point where we burst forth from it. I’ve certainly been feeling this way over the last week or so. It’s tough to remember when you’re going through it that the time you feel pressure is the bit that’s going to make you grow and expand.

Times like these are perfect to show you what you’re made of!

Another theme in the healing room has been around asking for what you need. Whether that’s setting boundaries, asking for help or just being able to take time out. We seem to be learning some really big lessons around that. This week’s energy is asking us to choose wisely and to include ourselves in our choices.

We are inextricably linked to the past but we forget that we are also linked equally as strongly to our future. The present is where these timelines meet and that is something to be really conscious and aware of as we are manifesting our future. We can do this consciously or unconsciously but simply to be aware of it seems to be a big message from the universe.

I don’t know where you’re at but I seem to be doing a lot of watching. I’m observing myself. I’m observing others. I’m also finding that a lot of the questions I’m asking seem to be answered through this observation. I love this way of working because I’ll reach out to the Universe and say “show me.” This is even more awesome if you remember that you’ve asked because being human, we often forget and then when the shits hitting the fan, we wonder what hell we’ve unleashed! I’ve started getting in to more of a conscious habit with the words, “show me regardless of whether I like the truth or not” and then I let go. This is the critical bit because you really do have to accept what comes rather than influence the outcome!

The pull from the moon is a big one and there’s something very reassuring about this moon’s energy. I’m feeling a different vibration with this one. It’s almost like the energy of “home” wants to come in and sit with us. I like this feeling. For those of you who are on this path, you’ll know I’ve talked about this feeling before. This feeling of wanting to go home. I feel the energies of this place are with us. I can’t sense whether it is galactic star energy or whether the energy of the ancestors is coming through more strongly with this moon. It’s a nice feeling this glow though because either way, the message I’m getting is “You are not alone. There are many more out there like you.”

For me, this moon is significant as I turn 40 in a few days. They say life begins at 40 so perhaps I’m also feeling the energy of my own rebirth from this star flooded universe. Who knows?

If you need help with any of the themes in this post, please do get in touch.

Until next time….Love and Light,

Hafsa

Energy Updates

Ascension Energy Update 4th February, 2019

This is your ascension energy update for the week. Hasn’t it been an interesting few weeks? We’re working with a couple of major themes and so I thought it was good timing to write an update today.

Revisiting the Past

The first major theme I want to cover is this idea of revisiting the past, or rather as it has been over the last few weeks is the past coming to visit you. For many of us, some ugly things have raised their heads from as far back as 2017. However, what we’re finding is that rather than it toppling us in the same way that it did before, it all seems to be showing us how much we have grown. This is all positive in my view. What you’ll notice when you’ve been working on yourself is that your responses begin to change. There is more of a sense of “I’ve got this” or “The Universe has got my back.”

It goes deeper than just growth though. This is all part of cultivating faith and trust in what’s meant to be, which leads me nicely on the the next theme.

Letting go

One theme that we will always be working with is this idea of letting go. Certainly in the healing room and for me on a personal level, it has been about exploring the mindset that keeps us locked in. Once we realise that it’s our thinking that keeps us in the same place, we can consciously move from that place to the next level.

One of things that helps is to become aware of the stories that we tell ourselves. For me, it’s going over old journals and things that I’ve written and that really helps me to see the story that I am telling myself. It isn’t just the story on it’s own though. It’s about what that story says about you and asking yourself if that’s who you want to be. This is challenging because if the answer is no, it means you’re going to have to do the work to change it!

This is when we start to let go of the ideas that we’ve been locked in to. Old you has been trying to keep pushing itself back in, but I find that baby steps are the best way to easing your way to carving a new place for yourself.

Advice going forward

The thing that works best for me when I’m transitioning in to a new version of myself is to take one day at a time. Watch for signs of old you because they’ll creep back in. The way that self-sabotage works is through the thought process and it’s challenging to keep on with things. This is something that I’m working with and the way through it is to ask yourself “What happens if I keep going with this?”

There will always be a pang of fear, but keep going nonetheless because fear can’t kill you. It can harm you and cause you to do things to your detriment, but even those things you learn from.

You’ve just got to keep on keeping on. Healing is there to help you so if you find you’ve hit a stumbling block and can’t move past a certain phase in your journey, please get in touch. I love helping people progress so hit me up!

Energy Updates

Ascension Energy Update 12th October 2018

WOWZERS! It’s time for another ascension energy update. I feel like it’s been a while and I can only apologise that I have not been writing as much but here I am and better late than never!

This new moon has seriously had us all exhausted! The energies have been so intense and I for one have been feeling it physically. It’s like having sleepy syndrome and there hasn’t been much time for me to sleep.

The healing room has seen some massive breakthroughs over the last week or so and I think this is the theme for October. It is officially breakthrough month on all levels.

It feels like we are all being asked to step and challenge ourselves to transition in to our next phase of ascension. The energy has been making us feel very tired with this feeling of “how long can I keep going?” It feels like burnout but it really isn’t. There is a need to push beyond this veil and there is a definite need to step up.

This week there will be something that happens that makes you feel certain that it’s time to step up. You’ll be overwhelmed with fear but honestly just remember what I’m telling you and roll your sleeves up and fight for what you want.

As lightworkers, we really suffer from procrastination and we can find reasons not to stretch ourselves. This is the time. It has always been the time. We talk about preparing ourselves quite a lot and intuitively knowing when we are ready.

The truth of the matter is this.

Your entire life has led you to this moment. You are ready. Hell you were born ready and it’s about time you realise it.

I’m in the headspace now where I have to give myself the Rocky speech every day and HURR myself on to keep going and I can feel that we are all breaking through. It may be next new moon when situations are resolved but if there’s a time to take action, it is now. This moment is defined by all previous moments and if it’s come in to your head, you are ready for it.

It doesn’t matter whether or not you can see progress. Feel it. Feel that the Universe is at work on your behalf. Set your intentions because energy follows intent.

The most important thing though is to cut out distractions. It’s all about you now.

Make this week a good one because it’s in your power to do so!

My next stage is to begin getting more active on my visual platforms as that is the thing that I’m feeling needs to be done so watch this space!!

I don’t have many followers and I need all the help I can get so I’d be really grateful for this. Also, if you do have ideas/questions that you’d like me to make videos about, let me know!

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!

Healing, Reiki Training

What is Reiki Training?

When the word Reiki comes to a person’s attention, it’s like a magic bean being planted. Reiki Training is the start of you becoming the person you came here to be.

I do a lot of Reiki Training which is all about teaching people how energy healing works. I also teach them how to use it to work on themselves and others. When I talk to people about how they got to Reiki, a lot of them will say, “I kept hearing the word Reiki” or “A few people have told me I should learn Reiki.”

At that stage, some people don’t really know what it is. Some have done a little bit of research online. I thought I’d give you my definition of what Reiki is and how it can help you transform your life.

What is Reiki?

In essence, Reiki is energy healing. The energy that we are using is the same energy that we are all made of…Life Force Energy or Chi or Prana – however you know it. We are all made of energy and we all come from the same source of energy. Reiki is when you connect to that source of energy and channel it for the purpose of healing yourself or to help someone else to heal themselves. The person channelling the Reiki will be attuned to the energy and will have learnt how to do this in a safe way. This is what Reiki training teaches you.

How can Reiki help me?

Reiki is an amazing tool for personal development and spiritual growth. It can help you access so much more within yourself and really change your life. Before I came to Reiki, my life was chaotic to say the least. I felt lost and like I didn’t really belong here. Many of my students can identify with this feeling of “wanting to go home” but not really knowing where home is. It’s a deep sadness that I think is felt by many on the spiritual path. I think Reiki really helped me to come to a better understanding of what it means to be on this Earth. It also helped me to find my purpose in life and gave me the opportunity to help others.

I remember on Day 1 of my Reiki training, my teacher said to me “You’re going to be teaching this one day.” I laughed out loud. Sure enough though, she was right and it has been the most rewarding journey of transformation and expansion. Tough in places, but well worth it. I’m now in a position where I can teach others and watch them grow and its like planting magic beans!

I wish I’d learnt it sooner – Check out my Blog post on what Reiki can teach you that school never did!

What is a Reiki attunement?

Now there’s some teachers out there who will attune you to Reiki. An attunement or empowerment is when a Reiki Master passes the blessing of Reiki on to a person so that they are able to use the energy more effectively for themselves. I think you need more than just an attunement though. I think you need to be taught how it can be used so that you can get the most out of it for yourself.

The way that I teach Reiki is based on it’s practical application to everyday life. It’s your tool and you want to be able to use it for yourself, in your own way for your highest benefit. For me, this is important because not only are we interested in expanding ourselves spiritually, we also need to remember that we are human and live a human life with real human experiences. Being spiritual is great but so is understanding your human-ness.

Reiki Level One

Reiki Level One is open to everyone who has an interest. It will teach you the basics of energy healing and it’s application to everyday life. We learn about the history of Reiki so you can connect to where it came from but also learn about it’s journey from East to West. The Reiki precepts (principles) are the foundation of Reiki practice and we also learn the daily energy meditation – another key element. We also learn about mindfulness, self-healing and cover what happens as you’re energy begins to change. I think that’s important knowledge if you’re learning to master yourself! There is also a practical at the end of the 2 days training so you’ll be taught how to give Reiki to friends and family should you wish to.

I’ve met quite a few people who have had Reiki attunements but haven’t been taught the foundations of practice for them to get the most out it. I think that’s a real shame because Reiki is the most amazing personal development and transformational tool there is out there.

If you’re open to mastering yourself and getting in control of your own life, Reiki is a great option. Not only does it help you to understand yourself, it also gives you a way of understanding the world so that you can find your place in it. It helps you to connect to yourself, your source of energy and the world around you.

That to me is the golden thread for alignment. Magical things begin to happen when your energy starts to change.

You’ve got the power within you. Reiki training simply helps you to access it!

Sounds interesting?

If you are interested in Reiki training, please do get in touch with me. Lets see if we are a good fit to work with each other. It’s really important that you connect to the person teaching you as this will be your guide for the journey. If you are local to Leicester, I run Reiki courses at least once a month. I also teach 1-2-1 via Zoom (Video Conferencing). It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you can still learn Reiki with me.
