5 Steps towards transformation


Current feels: The energy is one of transformation and healing from within. This is being amplified by the energy of this Full Moon. Are you ready to shed the layers, untruths and limiting stories that you’ve been telling yourself? If so, it’s time to go within.

Once you start doing the work you begin to realise that you cannot paper over the cracks (wounds, issues and untruths) with affirmations. It requires more than that. Much more.

True transformational healing is an inside job. You have to go within. In doing so you gotta be prepared for the real truth to hit you. You’ve also gotta be willing to feel the feels.

I’ve learned that this isn’t for the faint-hearted. It’s a process where you rise and maybe stumble along the way, ugly crying et all. However, it’s also liberating and you’ll learn what you need to, meet who you’re meant to and acquire tools, practices and wisdom that you need. All of which come together so that next time round you transform and heal with a little more ease and grace. So, let’s begin today as I share my 5-step process that has supported me in facilitating healing from within.


The wounds, the issues and untruths will rise to the surface. They’ll make themselves known to you whenever they time comes for them to be healed. However, whether or not you acknowledge them is entirely up to you.

Like many of you reading this, I would simply suppress or block out whatever wounds or feels that I didn’t want to deal with. I’d substitute it for anything else that felt better, e.g.: shopping, Prosecco or work. If it didn’t feel good in that moment I didn’t wanna know.

Over time, more layers of emotional baggage, stories, dramas and untruths built up around this suppressed core wound. This created more energy blocks, internal pain and challenges. It often felt like life was at a standstill and no matter how many affirmations or crystals I wore in my bra I couldn’t bloody move forward.

I learned the hard way to acknowledge the wounds, issues and untruths that rose to the surface. Simultaneously, feeling the feels in all their glory until they no longer had any power over me. Sometimes, this process was quick and, at other times, it meant I had to go deeper with inner child healing work for instance.

Either way, the important lesson was to acknowledge whatever was coming up. Knowing and believing that it was coming up for a reason. That it required my attention now, in that present moment.

What follows is a process of release. A releasing of the memory or issue, as well as the emotions and energy that went along with it.

Each of these things become trapped within if they don’t have an outlet. This creates all kinds of blocks energetically and just that feeling of stagnation. You know that feeling of not being able to move forward or manifest what you really, really want? It’s that.

I found this really frustrating until I began taking matters into my own hands, using Angelic Reiki or simple letting go rituals in order to release the energy.

One of my letting go rituals can be found here. It can be used for letting go of physically or emotionally and is really effective at detaching energetically. However, sometimes you need to go deeper into your practice of letting go which is where the following tools and practices really come into their own. At least, this has been the case in my own practice:

  • Prayer of surrender, faith, peace and strength
  • Energy clearing with AA Michael
  • Angelic Reiki for clearing and healing at the root

Personally, I follow this up with clearing the energy in the room where I’ve been working. Doing this simply through prayer and intention. Then opening the window or smudging with Sage.

“Dear God, Angels and Eternal Souls of love and light. Thank you for clearing this room of dense energy. This room is filled with your love, light and peace. No dense energies are welcome or able to reside in here. And so it is. Amen.”

You may need to revisit this release stage more than once. If that’s the case don’t be hard on yourself. I’ve found that some deeper rooted woes and issues need more time and energy to clear than others.

Grounding into the present and your own body is essential. It’s tempting to stay in this lovely healing bubble of love and light. However, the reality is that life isn’t always like that. There are twists, turns, ups and downs that have to be experienced and dealt with or how else would we grow? Therefore we need to be ground and present in this reality so, that we can also integrate the experience. Which is where grounding comes into play?

Some of my grounding practices include:

  • Getting out into nature and the fresh air by going for a walk in the park. Connecting to nature and the natural rhythms of life.
  • Prayer to Sandolphon. He’s one of the Archangels who knows what it’s like to live on Earth and he’s great to call in when you want to feel grounded. Tune into his energy through your intention and ask him to ground you.
  • Meditate and visualise yourself being grounded. YouTube have some great FREE grounding videos. I find it helpful to hold a grounding crystal in my hand whilst doing the meditation/visualisation. My favourite grounding crystal is Red Jasper because you immediately feel yourself being pulled back down to Earth.

When you release you create space for something else. I’ve learned that it’s important to fill that space with that feels good and in alignment with the bigger things that you are calling in. Something that puts you on the path to creating what you want. This step is often overlooked, yet it’s an essential part of supporting you in taking action and not filling the space with yet more shit.

How you do this is personal to you and you may find it changes from time to time. Simply do what resonates with you at that time. Take guided action from your Divine Entourage.

Some of my personal favourites include:

  • Setting new intentions in my journal and these should include the feelings that you will be experiencing more of, going forward e.g.: love, peace, joy and the like.
  • Visualise and daydream about what you want. Consistently follow this up with little visualisation breaks throughout your day.
  • Journal. Words are powerful and there’s something about writing it all down that adds a little magic energy to the process. You may even want to tune into your higher self and allow the writing process to be Divinely guided.

This is an important step that is often overlooked in our haste to feel better and experience more. However, it’s important to love and be kind to yourself.

In my own experience, I’ve found that healing from within is not for the faint-hearted. Pain and sadness are unearthed which means that it’s important to look after yourself. Give yourself that love, nurturing and energy that you deserve. This is especially important if you’re a giver by nature and put the needs of others before your own.

So, take the time to relax and practice self-care by doing the things that light you up. That might be exercise, salt bath, manicure or afternoon tea with the girls.

If time is an issue then ask the Angels to support you in finding and creating time to nurture yourself more.

“Thank you Angels, for supporting me to create time for nurturing and loving myself.”

This simple 5-step process can be applied at any time. It can also be repeated again and again if needs be. Tweak it and refine it to suit your own personal needs. Just don’t shy away from doing the work to clear your energy and heal yourself from within.


This week is dedicated to healing from within. Working with the Full Moon energy in Virgo to really tune in and facilitate that process. Prayers, readings, rituals and crystal remedies will be posted over the coming days on the Instagram page. So, I invite you to connect and post your experiences, comments etc.

Maximise the energy of your intentions and rituals 

Feeling drained, tired,  stuck or stressed? Our energy and that within our homes, as well as workplaces can amplify these feelings. If let for too long this will eventually manifest itself in your body in the form of aches, pains and illness.

In the last few weeks I have been taking the practice of clearing energy really seriously. Taking time to clear the energy in my home, workplace and my own energy. As a result of this I’ve felt calmer, relaxed, grounded and positive, with a heightened sense of awareness. This has not gone unnoticed by friends, colleagues and family members who have commented on how “different” I am lately. Different in a good way. Additionally, I’ve found that where there used to be problems there are now solutions and offers coming out of the blue.

Coincidence? Possibly. Yet, I strongly feel that clearing energy releases what’s no longer required, creating space for something more fulfilling to fill the space.


One of the first things I did was to Sage myself and my home. Calling in my Divine team and saying a prayer for what I want to release  (low vibes, stuck energy…), moving on to set an intention for what I was calling in. After this, I lit my Sage bundle before blowing it out and allowing the embers to smoke. Holding the intention in mind I walk around the room and wave the stick so that the smoke drifts around the room, paying special attention to corners. Then,  I open the window so that the lower energy has somewhere to go.

I also Sage myself, running the Sage stick around my body and visualise the lower energy being carried away for transmutation. Finally, I extinguish my Sage stick in water or hang it upside down so that it burns out. I’d only do the later if I’m staying indoors, for health and safety reasons.

Angelic Reiki 

At other times I practised self-healing, in the form of Angelic Reiki. I loved this method as it meant that I could lie back and relax, allowing the Angels the space to do their thing.

Angelic Reiki or any other form of energy healing like it has the effect of clearing away what no longer serves you. This form of healing is mostly about releasing the emotional and spiritual blocks that hold you back from being yourself.

Often what you won’t realise is that traumas, emotional pain, anger, fear and unforgiveness leaving an energetic imprint on us. If you don’t clear the energy you simply add to it with each new experience. Over time this creates a blockage and you may notice that this impacts on key areas of your life, eg: you experience endless dramas in your career and despite being capable, career success alludes you.

Personally and professionally, I have found that Angelic Reiki will bring the unseen to the surface. This allows you to explore the wisdom and learn the lessons from the past experiences that have brought you to this place.


Crystals are perfect for any kind of energy work and I especially love to use them to clear my energy at the end of a hard day or week. Mostly, I’ll blend this with meditation or Angelic Reiki in order to really amplify the energy of my prayer and intention.

One of the crystals that I love working with is to balance and cleanse new energy is Selenite. Using it to balance and cleanse my own energy, as well as the energy within my home. Having worked with this crystal at the end of each working day, holding it in my hands during meditation or prayer. I particularly like to use it during a healing session and have found that I have felt clearer energetically. Its afforded me more time and energy to spend on doing things I enjoy, rather than falling asleep on the sofa.

Incorporating Selenite into your daily life can be as easy enough. One of the easiest ways being to hold it in your hand during meditation. Closing your eyes, setting an intention for what you want the crystal to support you with and allowing the crystal to attune to, as well as balance your energy.  If you’re anything like me you’ll feel the energy moving and may even see a field of white light. For me the white light is a symbol of my connection to and the presence of God and the Angels.


By far the most effective form of energy clearing and balancing is prayer. I believe in and pray to God, yet you can pray to whoever resonates with you, asking them to clear the energy.

My preferred method of prayer is affirmative where I give thanks to God and my Divine team for clearing the energy of my environment.

As far as I’m concerned there are no special words. God, the Angels and spirit already know what you require and are often waiting for you to ask. Therefore, all that’s required is that you ask with sincerity and are open to receiving.

Of course, the benefits of these tools and practises are personal to the individual. This means that the benefits may well differ from person to person,  depending on their personal energy.

Over the last few weeks I’ve used a combination of each of these practises,  allowing myself to be guided by my own Divine team. Therefore, it is my suggestion that when choosing a modality, tool or practise to incorporate into your daily life you allow yourself to be guided. Listen to and trust your intuition.

Being in the phase of a New Moon it is a great time to call in the new, start new projects or begin to carve out a new path for yourself. However, to do so may mean that you have to clear energy and let go which is where any or all of these tools and practices can support you. Doing so by strengthening the energy of your intention  and creating space for that which you desire. Just remember that you still have a choice on how you fill the space,  so choose consciously and wisely.

I’d love to know your experiences of clearing and balancing your energy. Have you tried these tools and practices? What tools and practices do you use? If so, comment below.

Put down your crystals, essential oils and affirmations


A lot of people are finding that they are being triggered left, right and centre. When turning to their spiritual tools and practises they are finding that none of them seem to work.

Now, I’ve found myself in this situation many a time and have discovered this: “In your defencelessness your safety lies.” Sometimes you have to go it alone. Pack the crystals away. Save the essential oils for another day. Put your oracle cards back in their box. Why? Because there are times when you don’t need these things.

There are times when you are better off simply going back to basics and fully connecting with yourself. Fully connecting and sitting with those shitty feelings that you wish would go the fuck away. Why? “Because you gotta feel it to heal it.” Don’t get me wrong I bloody love my crystals and my cards. Yet there are times when being going without them and being defenceless does me way more good.

In the absence of my tools I am indeed defenceless. In that space I take the time to journal out my feelings and thoughts, which gets me to a place where I fully connect with my Higher Self and Divine team. What comes of this is a release that makes way for the energy to flow, the truth, limiting stories and belief to rise up to the surface. In the empty space that left the answers come. Sometimes this is instant and sometimes it takes more time. Yet, it always comes in Divine time and Divine way.

This is something that is available to all of us, not just me as a psychic. You can experience this too. Down the tools and breathe.

  • Breathe into the ickyness. Breathe into the fear.
  • Journal it out.
  • Dance it out and let the tears flow.
  • Pray from the heart to whoever you believe in. Be defenceless.
  • Talk to someone you trust and can be totally open with.
  • Do whatever comes naturally to you.

Have nothing to hide behind. Show up in full vulnerable glory. Then experience the shift and miracles that have been waiting patiently in the wings.

What’s been your experience of putting down your spiritual tools? Have you ever found yourself becoming over-reliant on your spiritual tool box and how did you let go? Share your thoughts and comments below.

Crystals and the celebs who love them

All images from Wikipedia.

Marilyn Monroe sung of diamonds being a girl’s best friend. However, it seems that today’s modern woman would prefer crystals over diamonds.

Crystals have been used for centuries. Carried as talismans and amulets, as well as being used in rituals for healing, attracting love and protection. With the Ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians having incorporated them into their daily life. Until recently this belief in and use of crystals for healing has been something that spiritual, woo-woo types have done on the down-low. But, now crystals have gone mainstream, with many celebrities professing to be using and successfully incorporating them into their daily lives.

So, which celebrities are using crystals? Which ones are they working with and why?

Victoria Beckham
The first celebrity on our list is Victoria Beckham. Most recently she is reported to have said that she brought a crystal for each member of her team to carry with them for positive energy. She’s also reported to have said:

“I’m really into crystals. I’m a real positive thinker. I believe in creative visualisation- the glass is always half full. I have no time for anything negative. I bought crystals for all my team, so they carry them too.”

Victoria is said to use crystals to attract success and positivity, as well as using crystals for protection and strength. Two crystals that she mentions working with are Black tourmaline and Rose Quartz.

Black Tourmaline is an excellent stone for energetic protection, drawing out negative energy and transmuting it into positive energy. Whereas Rose Quartz is the universal stone of unconditional love, as well as being soothing, healing and calming, especially in stressful situations. These two are a great crystal cocktail for balance, protection and love. With one drawing out the negativity and the other filling that space with loving vibrations.

Next on our list is the uber-talented songstress, Adele. This straight talking and down to earth star has said in an interview where she cites losing her crystals as the reason behind her disastrous Grammys performance. She explained:

“Then the Grammys came and I lost my f**king crystals!” She went on to say: “It turned out to be the worst, most disastrous performance that I have ever done. Well, apart from one really early on when I was doing a gig in Angel and I got so drunk I fell off my chair. But I got some new crystals now and everything’s been going well.”

Adele uses the crystals to support her in overcoming her nerves before going out on stage to perform and has even admitted to meditating before her shows. No doubt doing so whilst holding her crystals in her hands.

Now, although we don’t know for sure which crystals Adele carries with her we do know that a crystal such as Amethyst would be good for calming the nerves. This protective crystal emits a soothing and calming vibration, which relaxes the body and mind. Whereas a crystal such as Clear Quartz would be good for bringing forth that energy of focus and balance. Paving the way for focusing on an intention or task at hand. For confidence you’d be looking more at the orange and yellow toned crystals. Something like Orange Carnelian or Citrine both of which resonate with the Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras, our energetic seat of power and confidence, as well as self-belief. Finally, a blue crystal, such as Lapis Lazuli, Celestite or Turquoise would be great for clearing blocked energy around the throat chakra. Thus allowing for clear and confident communication. With Celestite providing that extra dose of courage.

Katy Perry
We now move onto Katy Perry who was apparently introduced to crystals by, none other than the Queen of Pop, Madonna.

Shortly after Katy’s break-up with John Mayer she began carrying Rose Quartz crystals.
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love and, although a very gentle stone it is also very powerful. What this beautiful pink crystal can do for you is reveal your own barriers to love whilst offering compassion, healing and forgiveness in the after-math of a break-up.
In addition to this, you’ll find that Rose Quartz is famed for attracting love into one’s life. For centuries it’s been used as a talisman for love, with many using it in rituals in order to attract their dream partner into their life. This is something that Katy knows about all too well because she is also reported to have used Rose Quartz to attract new love partners.

She said: “I don’t stay single for long,” Katy told Cosmopolitan. “I carry a lot of Rose Quartz, which attracts the male. Maybe I need to calm it down with the amethyst.”

There are many other celebrities who are also incorporating crystals into their daily lives, including Miranda Kerr, Kyle Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kate Hudson, to name but a few. Even the guys are catching on with the likes of Sam Smith, Eamonn Holmes and Robin Thicke all reported to have used crystals at some point.
