Angel inspiration and guidance

wpid-20140505_124519.jpg

 

Each week I draw 3 cards for guidance for the week ahead. More often than not I will use my Healing with the Angels Oracle card deck by Doreen Virtue. However, there are times that I’ll be drawn to use one of my other decks.

This week I have drawn the following cards:

  • Divine Guidance
  • Answered Prayer
  • Ideas & Inspiration

For me I get the feeling that these cards are guiding me to the importance of meditation, quiet time and grounding. All of these things help me with my connection to the Higher Realm and Divine Energies, making me a clear channel for their communication.

As a psychic clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient I receive guidance from the energies in a variety of ways. Being grounded and making time for meditation makes it easier for me to receive Divine guidance.

Prayer is also important to me and over the years I have refined the way I pray, taking inspiration from Kyle Gray. I now pray from a place of faith and certainty, affirming that my prayers will be answered. That I will receive what I am asking for, if not better. I then allow myself to be guided by the energies around me. Once again, being a clear channel for this is essential to me. Bringing us back to the importance of grounding and meditation.

Ideas and inspiration come from a variety of places and faces for me. Making being in that state of awareness and place of being so important.

How do you receive guidance from the energies around you? Do you use tarot and Oracle cards to guide you? If so, do you have any tips to share? Please feel free to comment below.

Cleanse and clear meditation

Meditation

There are times in all of our lives where we feel stressed, anxious and tired. Before discovering meditation I world have a melt down, turn to shopping, partying or boozing with my mates to numb myself from these negative feelings. For a moment I would experience peace, joy and contentment but these moments would fade quickly. It would be at these times that I would turn to prayer, which created space for me to cry and have a real outlet for the feelings that I’d been hiding from. However, I often felt I couldn’t “hear” the guidance from God and the Divine energies around me. This was until I discovered meditation.

Prayer was my outlet. My release. My petition to God but what I needed was to hear that guidance. Meditation enabled that to happen. Through meditation I gained quiet time. A time I could distance myself from the clutter in my mind, allowing what wasn’t immediately needed to simply filter through and out of me. This made space for the quiet whispering from God and the Divine energies to come through. It was here that true clarity, peace and insight came about.

It works for me but that isn’t to say it’s for everyone. However, I am happy to share with you a meditation I have used to cleanse and clear. Please feel free to comment and share this with others. However in doing so I ask that you reference it back to me on this blog page. Enjoy.

 The meditation

  • Take a few deep breaths. In through your nose and out through your mouth. You could do this in cycles of four and repeat three times. Eg: Inhale for four seconds, exhale for four seconds. Repeat this three times. This should help you to begin to feel calm and relax. I always affirm that I am a channel for love and light, for my protection.
  • Visualise a bright light above your head. The light from the Creator bask in this light for a moment or two. Feeling its warmth on your body.
  • See the light come down, pass through your crown and chakra. As it does so it cleanses and clears any dark energy. You may feel some emotions or have thoughts at this time. Allow them to come and go without judgement. It may be these are things that need to he released.
  • As the light comes down to your feet see it go down, down and down into Mother Earth’s core, taking with it any dark energy picked up in your auric field. Allow Mother Earth to transmute and recycle this without judgement.
  • Enjoy the feeling for as long as feelings necessary. Before allowing the light to rise up again through your body back up to the creator. Watch this light fade away but know that you can access it anytime. Rest assured that the light of the creator is present within you too.

I also meditate with crystals too. If you would like details about the crystals I use for different areas of my life please leave a comment below and I shall endeavour to respond as quickly as I can.

It’s all about change

Silver-Glitter-Background-42419152

Many times when we are in a difficult or uncomfortable situation we focus on the negative. All those things that we don’t like about the situation or person flood our minds. We can list all the reasons that we don’t like it or them. Then we wonder why we are attract more of the same.

You don’t need me to tell you the laws of attraction. You know that like attracts like, regardless of it being positive or negative thoughts that we put out there, into the Universe. You also know that your thoughts carry energy. Not only does the energy carry outwards it also resides within.

Your negative thoughts regarding the situation or person become your dominant energy within you. Carrying around this negativity can leave you feeling:

Drained
Tired
Angry
Jealous
Resentful
Stagnated

The action that result from this often include:

Procrastination

Bitching / arguing

Taking a job just for the sake of it or just for the money

Overspending

Addiction

Do any of these feelings or actions resonate with you at this moment?

In my own experience I have found that what is required is more light. When there is light in a dark situation you see clearly, when you see clearly you can navigate toward the outcome that is for the Highest good. But this all begin with you. You have to change.

Changes requires conscious awareness. You need to be aware of your thoughts, feelings, words and actions. For me, the most important of these are thoughts and feelings, as I usually find that they determine my words and actions. Therefore, when I change my thoughts my feelings change. When I master the two I worry less about my words and actions being negative because when my thoughts and feelings come from a place of love and light so do my words and actions.

There will be times when others will misinterpret my words and actions. I’m sure this has happened to you too but this is okay. For if it truly is expresses from a place of love and light then your intention was good. However, maybe the other person was not in a place where they were ready to receive this. My advice: Don’t take it personally. Keep breathing love and light into the situation. But, I digress.

You may be in a job you have outgrown, a relationship which no longer fits or work with a whinging boss and you want out. You may feel there’s no way out but there is and it begins with you. Start thinking about the things that you can change that will bring a feeling of peace and serenity. For example, instead of thinking about what you hate about your job start thinking about the skills you’ve gained, the insights and experiences you can use in your next role. Rather than lamenting the possible end of your relationship think about the ways in which you’ve grown and the lessons you’ve learnt.

In essence it’s about changing your perspective on the situation and the person, rather than changing the situation or the person. Often I have found that the situation seems less bleak or the person, less annoying, because I am at peace from within. It is from this place of peace that I can hear the quiet whispers of the energies around me, guiding me towards what I ultimate desire. From this place I make better decisions, I see more opportunities and I am received better by other people. All in all, taking the action of action brings me in alignment with what I want. Bringing it closer, not further away.

So what are you going to change? Have you got a story about changing your thoughts and focus that you’d like to share? Do you have any tips that might help someone else? If you feel moved to share then I’d love to hear from you.

My top tools for protecting your energy

 

new

I first came across this quote and poster on Facebook. The owner of a page I followed was opening up about her experience of being amongst crowds or big groups of people. The fact that it affected her on an energetic level. As I scrolled down I noticed people commenting that they too had the same or similar experiences.

The status and the comments took me back to my early teens and twenties. At that time I knew that I was psychic but I didn’t have a clue about clearing, grounding and protecting my energy. This all changed when I went on a psychic development course as I was introduces to a tool that would enable me to protect myself on an energetic level.

Prior to this I was frequently having headaches, experiencing dips in my energy, feeling tired and riding the waves of my emotions. The reason this was happening was down to the fact that I wasn’t clearing, grounding and protecting my energy. Instead I was frequently doing an energy exchange with energy vampires, as some people call them. Attracted to my light these people would literally drain my energy, leaving me with very little or their own lower energy. Looking back, I recall my teens and early twenties being a particularly rough time for me energetically. It was a time of bullying, upheaval and confusion.

By nature I’ve always been quite free spirited, happy, content and full of energy. I was the type of person who’d always bounce back with a positive and fearless attitude. With this in mind it’s no wonder that my energy was such a threatening delight to others. However, with certain friends and situations I would find that I would go from feeling positive and on top of the world to feeling like $#!t. In the meantime the other person felt better whilst I was left with a headache.

Although I could feel the shift I had no idea what was happening. Worst of all I just thought it was me and that I needed to get a grip. But this wasn’t entirely the case. What I needed was to cleanse, clear, ground and protect myself. Fast forward to the present day and I now have a selection of tools that support me in doing this. Some of this tools have been passed down by my spiritual teachers and friends. In many cases my guides and the Archangels have guided me in tailoring these tools to better suit me and my lifestyle.

Today, I will share with you two of the tools I use to protect myself energetically. The beauty of these tools is that they are quick and easy to do. After all, we are all living busy lives and there isn’t always the time to perform elaborate rituals.

Archangel Michaels cloak of protection

10255608_1440309942884633_1040335045300398555_n

This is my favourite energy protection method because it’s time effective. I, like any other normal person, sometimes skip my daily practice. When I do this I usually know about later in the day as my energy dips, along with my mood. So I try not to let this happen. However, on the days when I need to rev up my protection, especially at work around the chronic complainers, I use this to protect my energy.

All I do is imagine Archangel Michael wrapping a cloak of protection around me. I see the cloak wrapped around me and I pull the hood over my head. I give thanks for the grounding and protection from lower energies and entities. And that is it.

In recent weeks I have found this to be effective and really comforting. It’s as if a wave of calm and peace comes over me in that moment. Leaving me feeling safe, grounded and protected.

Protection Bubble

I usually use this method when I have more time, really taking the time to visualise and state my intention. This method is one I tend to use after a big chakra/energetic clear out or after some self Angel Healing. Sometimes I also combine it with method number 2 for added protection.

  • Sit or lie down, taking deep breaths in through your nose and our through your mouth. As you do so see white light entering your body, whilst you allow yourself to relax fully.
  • Call on God and your guides, Archangels who work for God’s light only (or whoever you believe in). At this point I say a prayer of thanks – thanking them all for their love, guidance and protection. As well inviting them to walk with me today.
  • Visualise a bubble of protection all around you. This bubble is big and you can see out of it clearly. Affirm that this is your bubble of protection, protecting you from lower energies and entities.
  • Depending on the situation or persons I will be around that day I will add a mirror to my bubble. A mirror that will deflect the energy away from you to the universe for transmutation.
  • Sit in your bubble and see white light, positive energy coming towards you. Enjoy being filled with this energy and, when you are ready, open your eyes.

So, there you have it, 2 of my favourite tools for protecting my energy. Feel free to share these with friends, family and cyber mates. Try them out yourself and let me know how you get on. Incidentally, if you have any tools that you’d like to share then it would be great to hear from you. I’m always looking for new tools and practices to add to my spiritual bag.

Forgiveness. The BIG F-word.

When I was first guided to write about forgiveness it was going to be a retrospective. Looking back at what I had learnt about forgiveness. But that all changed when my male neighbour decided to verbally abuse me and intimidate me on my own doorstep. The experience gave the topic a whole new spin.

I’m pretty streetwise so when push comes to shove I will speak up for myself, even against a big man. Despite this the whole experience of being verbally abused and deliberately intimidated left me worried and anxious, not to mention angry. Anxious and worried about my safety. Angry that a man, twice my age and size thinks it’s ok to treat me, a woman with such disdain.

However as worried, anxious and angry as I was I felt guided to make a specific choice and perform a specific action.

My choice was to be open to releasing the situation to God and forgiving this man. And the action? That was to pray for him and his family. The choice and action seemed natural to me. It came with no resistance from me. Pretty strange when I consider that I was that woman who would hold grudges and happily throw it all in your face in the heat of the moment. So what’s changed? I guess I’ve changed. Having chosen to really explore my spiritual side, through practising Angelic Reiki, I have come to heal, understand myself and the crazy workings of the universe at a deeper level. That doesn’t make me an angel who always gets it right but in this situation I’m learning to practise what I preach, what I’ve learnt and what I’m learning.

So here are the top 5 things that I have learnt about forgiveness:

  1. It’s a choice. You can either walk around carrying all of this anger, bitterness and resentment inside you or you can let it go. In letting it go you are choosing the path of forgiveness.
  2. The universe/God knows it isn’t an easy choice. Because of this they ease us in gently by allowing us to declare that we are sincerely open and ready to forgive the person who’s hurt us. When you open your heart to forgiving you open the door to love and close the door to fear.
  3. Forgiveness = blessings. Blessings occur from a place of love. The capacity to love is harder when the heart is closed and mind is trapped in fear. By choosing to forgive you are showing the universe/God that you are ready for blessings and for it/Him to replace what they have taken with something better.
  4. Law of compensation is already at work. From the moment that person takes from you something that doesn’t belong to them the universe/God is ready to compensate you. This is the Divine law of compensation. Therefore when we hold onto those negative thoughts and feelings we are, affectively, deactivating the Divine law of compensation.  However, when we choose love and forgiveness we are activating this law, allowing the Universe to improve the situation.  Simultaneously we surrender the situation to God, doing so in complete faith that he will take care of us and everything else.
  5. Make way for peace.  Once you have surrendered your thoughts, anger and fear to God you feel an overwhelming feeling of peace.  With that peace one of two things happens; you no longer care what the other person has to say or the other person changes their attitude toward you.  Either way, peace resides within you because you are not carrying this heavy burden of negativity.  With peace comes love, leaving room for the blessings to arrive and your situation to improve.

Ultimately, the choice to forgive doesn’t always come naturally in the same way that it did in my situation.  However, what I do know is that by practising forgiveness you release the weight of all that negativity that you carry around in your heart.  Releasing it all brings such a sense of relief.  After all, it is not you who has inflicted the pain so why should you continue to suffer for it?

In my own practise I am saying a prayer of forgiveness each day and will continue to do this for 30 days.  So, in light of this, I am inviting you to join me in a 30 day prayer of forgiveness.  All you have to do is commit to saying a prayer of forgiveness to the other person.  It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, you a short prayer where you declare that you forgive the other person and wish them well on their onward journey.  For example, my prayer goes a little something like this:

Dear God and Angels.  I declare that I forgive [name of person] for what he/she has said and done. I surrender the situation, my fears and anger to you.  I wish [name of person] well on that person and extend my love towards them.  I know that my family and I are safe and that you are protecting and guiding me in love always.  And so it is!

Obviously, you can use your own words if you would prefer.  It’s all about what resonates with you.  And, if at first, you find it difficult to forgive then you can always call on God/Angels or whoever you believe in to guide you, give you strength or whatever you feel that you need to get to that point of forgiveness.  Trust me, you will get there.  I have forgiven people who have really hurt me and know others who have forgiven people who have abused them.  So, I know that it is possible to forgive.

Have you ever forgiven someone who has hurt you? How did you do it? Feel free to share your story here if you feel drawn to.  Your experience and advice could be exactly the tonic that somebody else needs in that moment.
