5 Steps towards transformation

IMG_8278

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.

Acknowledge

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.

Release
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.

Ground
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.

Welcome
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.

Nurture
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.

The ritual of letting go

wp-1483995476904.jpg
“And suddenly, you just know that it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.” ~ Meister Eckhart

The Full Moon is here. A time when tensions tend to rise and a good night’s sleep is almost impossible, leaving many feeling grouchy, irritable and bloody tired. Has it been the same for you?

Traditionally, the Full Moon is a time of letting go of what no longer seems to fit. So, as we enter this Full Moon in Cancer, I ask you:

What are you ready to let go of?

The letting go process is seldom easy, especially when you’ve invested time, money, love and energy into what or who ready to be released. In response to this we tend to hold on. Doing so way past the sell by date, mostly in the hope that things will get better or that the other person will change. When the change doesn’t come we experience a further gulf of emotions that cripple us with fear. With fear and low-vibe emotions firmly in place we feel blocked. Thinking and feeling as there’s no way forward. Our emotions now seeming to get the better of us.

Now, if this sounds all too familiar and you’re feeling ready to just let go then I’ve got something for you.

A few years back I was an absolute energetic mess. On the outside all looked well – the beginning of a new professional career that was full of so much promise, dipping into the world of mysticism and spirituality, a wardrobe full of gorgeous clothes and handbags. Yet, behind the facade life was falling apart, piece by piece. As I reluctantly let go and desperately clung on all at once. On the inside I felt:

  • Broken
  • Lost
  • Confused
  • Angry
  • Sad
  • Resentful

Years of break-ups with ex partners,  childhood dramas, teen bullying and friendship betrayal, had left me feeling really shitty on the inside. Each experience having left its energetic imprint on me whilst stripping another fragment of my soul. So, one day, under the guidance of an Angel intuitive I begun the journey of writing it out of my system. Pouring my heart and soul into letters to those who I felt had hurt me, betrayed me or damaged my spirit in some way.

In the letters I shared my feelings about what happened. I expressed forgiveness to myself and the other person(s), closing by expressing gratitude for the lessons learnt and the growth that had taken place. With each word written and each year that fell I felt the heaviness left.

Then I burnt each letter and sent two (the latter is strictly optional).

What followed was a process of deep healing, integration and re-creation. A time where the empty space that had been left called out to be filled. Although,  that’s a soul story for another time. Until then,  I challenge you to……..

Write your letter(s)

With your pen in hand simply get writing. Pour your heart and soul into that letter. Allowing every buried thought and feeling to rise to the surface. Even if your tears are staining the paper I urge you to keep writing until you naturally feel that it’s time to stop. Then comes the exciting part.

Burning is the ideal way to dispose of the letters. The smoke is symbolic of releasing the dark, dead energy. However, if fire isn’t your thing, you might find shredding or tearing the letter(s) into pieces to be just as effective.

What happens next will be the healing and integration process. This may look different for each person, depending on how deep the wound. Some of you reading this may require support and guide from those in the medical profession, others may opt for spiritual energy  (like I did) and others of you may choose to go it alone with journaling or some other spiritual practise. Internally and intuitively you’ll know what’s right for you so, follow your inner guidance system. It will never guide you in the wrong direction.

Now, it’s up to you

Decide what you would like to release during this Full Moon in Cancer phase. Failing that, allow the energy and planets to show you. Maybe Mercury Retrograde had your ex-partner getting in touch or old boss/colleagues touchbase. On the other hand, maybe the Full Moon is showing you the thought patterns, limiting stories or ways of being that really don’t serve you anymore.  Be aware and trust in whatever is coming up for you. Have a go at the letter writing and let me know how it goes for you by posting in the comments below or in private email.

Good luck and happy Full Moon.

Put down your crystals, essential oils and affirmations

img_7851

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.

Time to forgive and let that shit go

image

As much as the full moon is about letting go it’s also a time to surrender and forgive. At least, that’s what I use it for. Although, you can choose to do these things at any time I like to take the time to reflect on what’s worked well and what I’m still working on manifesting.

The energy of late has been heavy, with old wounds or sudden wake up calls causing us to realise that old stories, lifestyles, careers, choices and ways of being are no longer sustainable. Sparking a call to action where you move towards the new but this often requires us to first let go of what isn’t serving us. That way we create space for what we do want in our lives and show God (or who or whatever you believe in) that you are ready to receive.

There are many practises and tools that can be used for letting go. Writing is my part of my chosen, preferred method. Pouring it out onto paper before binning or burning it. Why bin or burn it? Well, who wants to hold onto low vibe energy? It’s a way of saying “I’m letting it go” and aligning with the intention of doing just that.

Gratitude and meditation follow this practice. Filling the space that’s been left with positive energy that supports me in being aligned with what I want to attract. Prior to this I work with the cards, doing my own little spread, to shed more light on the messages and insights that my spiritual team want to share or have me focus upon during this full moon. This helps to frame, strengthen my intentions and maybe even guide me on what to release or focus upon.

Crystals are optional. I’ve practised this for years just between myself and God, without the assistance of crystals. However, these days I incorporate them in order to enhance the energy of my intention. Selecting the crystal intuitively or based on their specific properties.

Clear Quartz features in this image. a Master Healer crystal, resonating with each of the chakras. Facilitating energy clearing, clear seeing and amplifying the energy of the intention.

Rose Quartz may also be a good choice especially if working on forgiveness, compassion, love or emotional related wounds.
