This month, I have really felt the need to be truly who I am instead of hiding away in the shadows using the excuse of not being “good enough”!
Our formative years really influence how we feel about ourselves and our worth. These thoughts can be so insidious, lying in the subconscious, yet affecting what we do and how we feel.
I do not always feel like this, but it comes occasionally, when I am upset or when things have not quite turned out the way I expected them to: I realise that these situations require me to trust and practise detachment (sometimes pretty hard!).
It is really worth working on loving and accepting these thoughts and feelings thus rendering them obsolete!
So here is a beautiful verse and a quotation to help you to be confident in yourself and your unique abilities!
Dwhal Khul through Alice Bailey
I am the Soul
I am the Light Divine
I am Love
I am Will
I am Fixed Design
I am the Monad
I am the Light Divine
I am Love
I am Will
I am Fixed Design
Luke 11 verse 33
No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light
Stewart Pearce: from The Angels of Atlantis Oracle Card
Archangel Uriel on Abundance:
I am Infinitely Abundant in Spirit, I have plenty of wealth and my riches increase everyday.
I hope you have a great weekend, I will be off to Avebury for a sounding and Goddess event, yay!!!
Hopefully will get a gong soon, yay!!!
Perhaps I have mentioned this before and please forgive me if I have already written about it, but it was brought to my attention once again how important it is to continue working on ourselves and to continue to find ways to care for ourselves as we evolve during these exciting times.
Ways to care for ourselves can include food detox, exercise, meditation, attending transformational and healing workshops, creating a relaxation regime for yourself if your work is stressful, surrounding yourself with loving friends who have integrity, self-healing if you are trained in a healing modality and receiving healing from heart-based therapists. However, even if you are not trained in any healing modality, meditation, drawing, singing, dancing or just placing your hands or your attention to a part of your body will effect healing to take place. Remember when you were a child and you fell over and grazed your knee and your mother or father placed their hands over the painful area and somehow it did make you feel better, well that’s how healing works!
I used to think that once I attended and received all my Angelic Reiki qualifications, I did not need to attend any more workshops (unless something really caught my eye or I just wanted to!) or receive healing from anyone else because I could do it all for myself now!!
Well, it took just a few experiences last year to jolt me back to a more grounded and humble state of mind when I found myself in such a heavy emotional and energetic state that I needed to ask for help from a good friend and fellow therapist. I also found myself guided to attend Stewart Pearce’s Alchemy of Voice workshops last year which brought me immense healing and new friends!
So what, you might ask, has precipitated this soliloquy? I received healing from a lovely lady today, to clear all my old programmes pertaining to a specific set of issues. I felt great after the session and know that a lot of old patterns have been removed permanently.
I have done some work on these areas before but they were not shifting very quickly or efficiently. Even though we are therapists and healers, we still have to continue to work on ourselves, as all of us are called more to hold greater love, light and pure sound within ourselves.
It is time to really embrace ourselves, all the light and shadow selves, and to release ourselves from the inertia which threatens to keep us stagnant and out of our flow.
So I continue to seek out heart centred therapists and spiritual leaders who have great integrity and continue to receive and pay for healing, activations and attunements because I know that they will help me to be the best that I can be.
I do hope that you continue your healing journey with beautiful souls coupled with the knowing that you are always in the bosom of the unconditional love of Source and that you are always supported in all the decisions that you make.
Gratitude for all the small and large things! After a weekend's weather mix of very cool rain and patchy sunshine, it is such a pleasure to have the dining room door open again and the sunlight flooding through. It is only when it is absent that I begin to miss the feel of the sun's rays on my face.
Why does it sometimes take the absence of something for us to be grateful for what we have? May be it is because we tend to take things for granted or perhaps we just forget whilst we go about our daily routines of eating, working, eating again, toiletting, having fun etc etc!
At last weekend's wonderful Angelic Reiki Level 1+2 workshop with four beautiful ladies at my home, I remember saying that it was important to remember what we experienced during the workshop: the feelings of love, transmutation, power, glory, fun, sistership amongst others: I am still basking in these wonderful energys and memories.
I believe that in order for us to instantly access or recall these beautiful feelings and experiences which can help us when we are tired or are feeling despondent, we need to express gratitude for them on a daily basis. Gratitude is also a means of re-creating these vibrations again.
I have taken to, upon waking in the morning, saying thank you for a new day and for new opportunities and experiences and with the intention of being the best that I can be. I do it whilst I stretch out in bed and before I embark on my morning meditation. Later on, because it is summer (I will tell you whether I still do it when it gets cold!!) I go out barefoot into the garden and salute the sun and the earth. If I see the moon or feel her presence, I acknowledge her with love and respect.
Rituals are pretty important and if you think about it, every thing you do is a ritual in its own right. How you wake up in the morning, what do you do first? Have a loo break or a shower or a smootch with your partner so that your blood starts pumping to help you get out of bed into a cool cool room!
When my daughter is with me, I try to wake up before she does to meditate, then we have a cuddle otherwise I sneak out and feed the cats and let them out first!
Sometimes our rituals need a shake up and a spring clean or a complete ditch out! And we might want to start afresh with new morning phrases of gratitude and love for ourselves and the universe. Perhaps we might want to complete the day with an expression of gratitude for all that has occurred throughout the day, even the challenges and not such nice experiences.
My plan is to continue my morning gratitude ritual, extend it with a phrase or phrases which express my appreciation of myself and my service to others, love for Source and all beings across all dimensions and my gratitude for being incarnate here at such a glorious time on Earth.
How do you wake up? Do you wake up feeling excited at all the possibilities of a new dawn? Will you celebrate all the good things you will experience and receive in the day? I hope so, because this will help you to receive all the beauty and abundance that you deserve.
We have just come through a full moon and the Summer Solstice! Wow!!
I hope you all enjoyed the wonderful energies of celebration and joy last Saturday!
It has been an exhilarating and frustrating time for me, probably because I had to face up to some big issues which needed changing and transmuting, and it was hard whilst I was in the thick of it. I am now integrating these lessons and challenges and beginning to focus and set my intent again, which is a relief.
One of these lessons was about setting boundaries and having greater self-esteem and trust in my own intuition. In Angelic Reiki, we are attuned to merge with the Angelic Kingdom of Light, and we merge energetically with our brothers and sisters when they receive a session: the Angelic Kingdom, the practitioner and the client become one.
It is perfectly safe and we give intent that only Energies of 100% Light are allowed to enter our energy field when we give treatments.
During a session we are protected from absorbing the client’s energy even if we can feel their emotions and vice versa.
In these situations, the client and practitioner come together through love: love for themselves and love for the greater unity of all, which is what we all are. I believe that clients are divinely guided to their therapists and we learn from one another.
I found over the months preceding the Solstice that not all therapists or alternative health practitioners honour the energetic boundaries of each other and this caused a real problem for me.
Ultimately, I believe that all people come to us for a reason, perhaps there are karmic issues from past lives to be faced, lessons to be learnt and more light to emerge within us when these are resolved. These encounters also taught me to listen to my intuition and to follow it!! It is always right.
So what can you do with this information I am sharing with you? Listen and trust your intuition, do not think that others know better than you just because they claim to be spiritual or are incredibly psychic. We are all special and have our own unique gifts.
If you told me five years ago that I would be doing what I am doing now, I would not have believed you!! I thought that channelling and talking to Angels and Ascended Masters was the domain of really holy and special people, I certainly wasn’t one of these and I am still not!!
So with the energies of the Solstice just past, still wafting in the air for us, it is time to let go of all preconceptions we have of ourselves, any low self-esteem issues we may have that we are not good enough to make our dreams come true, it is time to burn them and let them float away on the river of life. Use this time and the energy to embark on your journey, which will ultimately take you home to yourself and to the knowledge that you are God!! We have just forgotten!!
What would you like to do and achieve with all the power of the universe? What is your beautiful dream which will merge with the dreams of other dreamers for our world and universe?
Go into meditation each day and ask yourself what your unique dream is and ask your Higher self and your Angel guides to help you to be open to their ministry so that you receive help and guidance to make it material. Speak to the Sun and the Moon, bathe yourself in their Light and absorb the wisdom freely given, with deep gratitude. Or spend time in Nature, it is so inspiring and full of creative energy.
Surround yourself too with friends who have integrity, who will spur you on with encouragement or gently kick your butt if you get distracted from fulfilling your dream.
This is a new dawn, a new time, a time to wake up to your true and divine potential.
Be brave and take it, take your birth right, grasp it with both hands (and feet!) and run with it, soar with it!!
I hope that you do take that leap of faith and that we will meet again in the fields of love.
with love and blessing,
