What my spirit guides want us to know

Recently I was in a meditation searching for a solution to a small frustration I’ve been having. Whenever I need answers I usually meditate and wait for spirit guides to join me because this is normally enough to start a new thinking pattern and get myself back on track.

But guidance comes in many forms and we don’t always get step by step answers – sometimes it is up to us to ask for help then surrender the need to control what our reply is. This week, my dear spirit guide needed to remind me of this.

During meditation I complained to my guide that things were not as smooth going as I’d like them to be and that I was feeling annoyed. The answer that came back was this:

“Sometimes, what we think are blocks, barriers and hold ups are actually the solutions we’ve asked for.”

Isn’t that freeing?

My theme for 2017 is ‘surrender’, and days earlier I had already been told to resist nothing. Obviously I’d heard the message, but I hadn’t paid attention to it. This meant my guide was forced to listen to me complaining for a second time before repeating the message in a different way! (Which, for the record, is fine with guides as long as you are committed to the work).

So, just to save your own guides shouting at you til they’re blue in the face, let me pass this super important message on.

* We must surrender to the experience of life. We must use whatever we’re given as a starting point for choosing the most loving perspective.

*We must resist nothing. Even if it feels terrible going through it, we must learn the lesson the experience brings and trust that we will feel better one day. Perhaps we’ll feel better than better one day!

*What we resist, persists. We’re here to learn our life lessons and in some form we will keep repeating our lessons with different people and situations until we pass the assignment. Take everything as a gift. Where is the blessing? What do you need to learn?

*We must not assume it’s wrong for us just because it wasn’t in our own plan. What might we gain if we were to go with the detour and see how things pan out? We cannot ask for guidance then ignore it because it’s not what we want. We don’t get what we think we want… we get what we need.

*And finally, we must strengthen our link to our guides through regular meditation. They are waiting to speak with us if we will just make space for them.

* * * * *

I hope this serves you a little. Let go of control, go with what life has to offer, and find the light in every situation. Things might be frustrating, or you might just be resisting the solution…

Weekly reading, ace of fire

Good morning 🙂 This week I wanted to pull an angel card for us. Did you see my latest blog post? I’m convinced I caught an angel on camera! (Find it here if you’d like to read!)

Whatever you think of my photo though, angels are all around us and can offer us wonderful insights which is why I pulled our guidance this morning from my favourite angel deck.

The card I pulled today was Ace of Fire, and this is a card which represents new beginnings particularly around career. If any of you are looking to change jobs, gain one, or are stuck debating whether you should take a promotion, our guidance says the energy is right for a new start. If it feels good, go for it!

If you are unemployed but are looking for work, be more aware this week of your efforts and step them up. Apply for those jobs you want but don’t feel you can get, and speak to as many people as you possibly can. Push your fear of rejection aside and just go for it. If you get a no, so what! Shout from the rooftops that you are looking for work. Self belief is key here – it can make your year or hold you stuck.

Are you starting a new career this week? If so go in with a positive mindset. You couldn’t have picked a better time!

I’m being told that fear of choosing wrongly holds us back quite a bit. Well, you can forget that fear this week. If you have the chance to take a risk that feels right, do it! The angels are cheering you on!

Love as always 🙂

Ask for signs that your angels are near

Last week was a tough one for me. My youngest started school, my oldest has developed an attitude, the retrograde was in full swing, and the full moon was intense. My mood was up and down to say the least. So when we went to Salisbury cathedral on Saturday, I asked for some reassurance of spiritual presence. Sitting in the pews I prayed and waited, though no thunderbolt of love hit me.

14333776_556708624530922_3939548138612859427_n

But when I got home and checked my photos there was one which had an emerald green beam hitting the floor. Logic was pushing me to assume it was a reflection from a stained glass window somewhere and I even posted this to the facebook group, but I really wanted to believe Archangel Raphael had been present with me. He is probably the angel I call on most – I never send any healing for others without asking for his assistance, and whenever I feel out of sorts I always look towards him for help.

So I asked for a sign that he’d been with me! And that’s when the replies started showing up.

First, a friend posted a card reading featuring Archangel Raphael.

Next, Doreen Virtue posted one too!

Thirdly, Doreen went on to take a look at my photo and gave me the thumbs up.

And finally, I logged onto Twitter to find Doreen had posted a tweet 12 hours before about angels appearing on camera. The tweet was only just coming to my attention, and it was as though Archangel Raphael was making certain there was no doubt left for me to indulge in, especially as his messages were coming through my favourite angel lady.

If that wasn’t enough, an image of him showed up in reading material, and another card reader pulled his guidance card. All within 24 hours.

I have spent the past few days feeling blessed. I am lucky enough to have a community of spiritual friends who have let me share my joy with them, and I have felt so thankful that I have received the wonderful gift of knowing that angels really are with us whether we notice them or not.

The point of my post, as well as sharing my joy with you, is that it is ok to doubt and it’s ok to ask for signs and extra guidance if you need it. We don’t always know for definite that what we’re seeing is what we want it to be and that’s ok! It’s part of the learning.

If you’re in doubt of spiritual presence, do ask for confirmation that you’ve received the correct message – it will come if it needs verifying.

Archangel Raphael was there for me on Saturday, and when I wanted ‘proof’, he sent me further signs through Doreen, knowing I would trust my favourite angel teacher. How special was this gift to me?

The simple fact is there will never be enough proof out there for a non believer. As someone who works with angels frequently though, the reassurance I received this weekend is magical enough for me.

3 things you should do if you want to be a medium

The other night was a rough night for me. I had a babble of voices in my ear as I was trying to fall asleep, and then when I *did* finally sleep, I woke up with a jolt to find spirit stood at the end of my bed!

I was telling somebody about my night as I fueled up on coffee, and, not put off by strange men appearing in the bedroom, she asked me how she might develop her own mediumship skills.

candle-1421437

Whilst receiving messages from spirit is quite a skill and some have more of a natural talent for it than others, there are a few things you can start with to test your skill and patience for this work. (At this point I should tell you I am still learning 10 years in!) It’s not an easy skill to develop I don’t think, but if you are prepared to put the time in, it’s a really enjoyable ability to have.

So let’s get learning!

1) The first key thing any medium does on a regular basis is meditate. You have to have quiet space within your mind if you want spirit to reach you. I know meditating doesn’t seem all that exciting and you just want to see ghosts, but the best way to prepare for this is to learn how to meditate for at least 15 minutes, and do it at least once a day. Spirit is energy and the more peace you have within yourself, the easier it is to sense changes. I tend to feel spirit before I look to see it.

2) The second key skill to have is the ability to stay in the light! I don’t know if this next practise is unique to me or if it’s how all mediums work but I find my spirit guides pass messages on to me rather than the spirit himself. To hear your angels and guides with ease, it’s essential you stay in a high, loving vibration. The more joyful and open your heart is, the easier it is to receive the guidance because you’re on the same energy level. Learn how to choose peace as much as possible and you’re once again creating that calm, safe space which spirit is able to work with.

3) Finally, practise opening your third eye! During meditation, practise pouring white light between your eyebrows to hit and open your third eye. I also open my heart chakra at this point too by picturing a green circle of petals spinning near my heart, receiving loving light and guidance. Before opening yourself up, be sure to protect yourself with a shower of loving white light which you hold around yourself as you work, and once you’re protected, sit for a moment and see what comes through as you tell your guides you are open to receiving loving guidance and being a channel for loving communication. You may need to work with this exercise for a fair while, and start by learning to meet and trust your spirit guides if you haven’t mastered that already. (Read 3 things you should do if you want to meet your spirit guide)

So there you have it! 3 things you can do today to develop those mediumship skills. Are you a medium yourself? Can you add to this? Comment below and share your teachings. 🙂

Love as always 🙂

Weekly Reading, Ten of Fire

Good morning! Welcome to the weekly tarot guidance. Take what you can from these messages, and use your weekends to make any necessary changes 🙂

This week I wanted to ask the angels for a card. I have called them to me several times over the past few days, and I’ve asked them to share their love with you too. (The world is in desperate need don’t you think?) Drawing from the loving energy they sent, I pulled the ten of fire card for us, which is a card linked to warnings about overwork.

20160727_082744

The angels have two messages for us. The first is that if we have been over doing it on the work front, it is time to slow down and take care of ourselves. They warn of health problems if we don’t! They advise us to cut down on our hours, or, at the very least, schedule some down time and use it well. They are very keen to remind us of the importance of relaxation time.

The second message they have for us is to ask for help! So many of us have a problem with reaching out! They tell us we don’t have to do it all by ourselves, and the angels themselves are ready to assist if we call on them.

When we call on others to help us, we build connections, community and friendships. The angels want us to remember this! Only ego has us separated and believing we have to work alone. This is a key point of today’s card I feel. It takes real strength to reach out and admit a bit of support is needed, and judging by the number of times this message has been shared with me these past few weeks, I feel this reminder is vital to share.

So slow down this week and if you do need help, ask for it! You might be surprised how easy it is to lean on somebody else!

By sharing this post, you’re helping me spread the angel message! I’d love to get the helping muscle working by asking you for a share if you have the time. 🙂

Much love as always… X

Tarot Thursday, Page of Fire

logo Good morning 🙂

This week I turned to our angel cards for guidance since they so lovingly sent me a gift on Tuesday!

Using a deck by Doreen Virtue, today I pulled the Page of Fire for us.
Fire is linked to our passions and our impulses so this week the cards would like us to focus our attention on opportunities coming our way.

Our guidance today say we should be open to exciting chances this week even if they seem scary, and we should be brave enough to jump in knowing that we are ready even if we don’t feel it. This is perfect news if you have been a little restless lately or if you have been pondering your next move at the cross roads you’ve arrived at. Your soul knows what’s what, so don’t miss the chances life puts your way by being nervous or worse, deliberately turning away!

So many of us hide because we’re scared. We turn away from what we secretly love because we’re frightened of making a mess and staying small allows us to keep tidy, if a little bored. But life is supposed to be one big lesson! We were not put here to work a 9-5 in the same routine day in day out so is it any wonder most of us dream of a little bit more than that?!

Last week we were told to lead by being who we really are and this week we are being told to recognise opportunity and jump in. I think it’s time to shed a little of that fear and know we are supported. If chance comes your way this week, take it without hesitation.

Get your spiritual groove on! Practice one: Be love always.

logoCurious as to what the Get your spiritual groove on course can teach you and how it can help you make contact your spirit guides? Grab a sneaky peek now! If it looks to be your thing you are most welcome to sign up for the rest of the emails by entering you email in the sign up box below. (This is the only lesson being posted to the blog)

Welcome! It is so lovely to know there are so many of us wanting to live a better way now and I really do hope these emails help each of you individually in some way. I have written this quick course purely to share what I’m doing to develop my own relationship with spirit because during the past six months it is what a lot of people have told me they want to learn too. It can be overwhelming knowing who to trust when learning this stuff so my aim is to keep things simple and give you the foundations so that you have something to build on in your own way and in your own time.

If you’re new to the spiritual game I get that it can be tough knowing where to start – just how do you do spirituality? Is it being calm 24/7? Burning incense? Knowing the names of the chakra points and what they do? (By the way, there are tons!) What about yoga? Can you claim to love it if you can’t touch your toes or name the poses? It can be overwhelming stepping out of the spiritual closet, especially if you’re immediately greeted by those more immersed in their path than you.

This is *your* path though and it offers a spiritual connection unique to you. For all you know those braggers on the Internet are as clueless as you are but are pretty nifty with the cut and paste. Even if they aren’t, there are hundreds of spiritual paths, beliefs and practices and it’s far too much to ask you to know everything before you can claim your spirituality.

Over the course of twenty years I’ve studied many religions and practices in an attempt to be ‘spiritual’. I’ve worked really hard to take it all in and remember it all, working myself into a frenzy to match the knowledge of others, live the spiritual life they seemed to, and glow in the glory of being a spiritual guru. And you know what all that activity has taught me? It’s ultimately taught me to stop! For when you actively listen to what you need in the moment, you really don’t need to embrace every spiritual practice, every single day. What you need will show up as guidance and it’s listening to this inner voice that gives you the peace you crave and the title of spiritualist. (And I think everyone is ultimately seeking peace whatever they call themselves!)

We are made from love. That same energy that created the universe, God, Angels… It’s running through you. When we say we want to be spiritual what we’re really saying is we want to return to love and remember who we are at cell level. We don’t want to struggle anymore… we want to feel part of a magic we just *know* is missing. We want to connect to heaven again because we know that’s where we belong.

Which brings me to my first spiritual practice: Be love always. I have chosen this as my first practice because to live any other way is to live in frustration, annoyance, stress, fear… even hate, and if you get too deep into all that bad stuff you’ve got no chance of noticing a spirit guide popping by.

If you were hoping email one would give you some magic formula and have you conversing with spirit this evening this practice is especially for you! I was the same for a time! For years I was frustrated I couldn’t connect with spirit other than on heaven’s say so… I would have guides pop in now and again along with family members that had passed over, but I didn’t feel heard when I tried to call them back! I wanted names, faces and full on conversation with my guides and I couldn’t get any of it or if I did, I didn’t trust it! How bloody annoying?!! It wasn’t until I shut my ego up, moved into peace and dropped expectation that I developed the strong connection with spirit that I craved.

‘Being love’ for me means making a choice every second of the day. It means always doing my best to choose the loving path. It means accepting what life gives me and looking for the positive (love) gift or lesson within it. It is not reacting to others when I could, simply because it is more loving towards myself to stay peaceful and not engage in battle. It is choosing peace despite chaos, slowing down rather than rushing, and getting quiet so I can lovingly listen to what I need each day. Whether that’s rest, talking to a loved one, doing something fun or getting a few extra veggies onto the dinner plate, I listen to what my mind and body needs and I love myself by taking care of myself.

I no longer tear from job to job – I choose love instead and know slowing down gives me the chance to breathe and pick up on any messages I need to receive. (Your guides can’t possibly speak with you if you refuse to listen!)

This week, step into your spirituality and close the gap on how far your guide has to come to meet you by practicing love. Choose love always, in each and every moment.

*Instead of reacting, walk away. Be love. Be loving towards yourself by choosing peace. Let others rant and rage but don’t let them draw you in and steal your peace.

*Slow down. Breathe. Take time from your day to just sit in silence. Listen. Is there anything you need to know? Make a note of it. This is your intuition picking up its messages.

*Love yourself by taking care of your needs. Is there something you need or want to do for yourself? More rest time? A better diet? More connection with others? Don’t ignore your needs. Self love is the most important love. And your guides need you well!

*Slow down. (Yep, it’s so important I said it twice!) 10 jobs to do? Do them one at a time, being fully present as you perform each task. This is what the universe wants you to focus on in this moment so there really isn’t any point stressing that you should be doing something else. Love yourself by being present in the moment no matter what demands your attention. Don’t destroy your moment because you’re not fully in it. You can’t chat with spirit if your mind is too full.

*Move from task to task finding the love. Making breakfast? Give thanks for the food. Separating arguing children? Stay calm as you intervine. You have a family. Walking to school? Give thanks for your working legs. Off to work? Give thanks for your pay cheque, be the helpful colleague, love yourself by refusing to feel stress. Find the love each moment is offering, it’s there, trust me…

For me, being spiritual first and foremost means loving myself enough to make a moment to moment choice to choose the most loving and peaceful response to the present. It is here, in this loving space, that you’ll be guided towards living your best life, supported by the same loving energy that created you and surrounds you, and it is here that you’ve got the best chance of picking up on the subtle guidance being offered.

Can you choose love in each and every moment this week? Give it a go, I challenge you! If you fall off the horse merely notice your negativity and have a go at bringing your thoughts back to love. This is a practice I commit to daily and it’s ok to be shouty, stressy, mum/boss/daughter if you recognise when you’re not where you want to be and have the ability to guide yourself back to love by choosing again. (Rose Quartz will help with this)

Let me know if you need any help!

Tarot Thursday, Archangel Michael

logo
Good Morning!

Today I figured I would pull a card and let it speak for itself. I chose to pull from my favourite angel deck, and Archangel Michael has come through for us as the chosen messenger.

Michael is the angel of strength. If you need help remaining strong as you go through any challenges, Michael wants to remind you that you can close your eyes and call on him for extra support at any time. He will surround you with his light, and help you draw on your own strength and intuition.

Michael also loves to help us cut ties with things/people that no longer serve us. You can ask Michael to help you sever ties with people and situations whenever you are ready to release them, and he’ll help you move into better serving energy. Send that prayer up day or night but you *must* ask for help before he can support you.

If you are struggling with anything at all at the moment this card serves you as a reminder of the support available to you. I seem to be saying this repeatedly at the moment but it’s worth saying again: you are not doing this human experience alone.

Hope this offers you some useful guidance, particularly if things aren’t too bright at the moment. Enjoy your week with Michael, and do let me know if he helps you! Call on him frequently, especially if you haven’t before!

How to get yourself unstuck

logo
Question for you! What do you do when you don’t know *what* to do?!

Has boredom kicked in? Have you set a big goal for yourself that you have no idea how to complete? Are you stuck with an issue you don’t know how to solve? Or do you just have a spare hour to fill and want to use it wisely? Us people spend an awful lot of time doing mindless things that don’t bring us joy, simply because we don’t know what else we could be doing in the moment. We reach for the biscuit tin when we’re bored, and watch TV because that other thing we should be doing? Well it’s just too damn hard…

Sometimes there’s just so much work to do that we can’t prioritise, and we stay stuck doing nothing with the jobs mounting up.

But meditation can change that! Whenever I’m not sure of my next move, I take time to sit in silence and connect with spirit as I ask the question ‘What is my next action?’

I do this a lot! I frequently sit in peaceful meditation until inspired action comes through, and it’s a practice that has literally changed my productivity. Sometimes during these meditations one action comes to me, other times two or three tasks come forward. Either way I know I can be productive completing these tasks, and once I get going momentum often builds up as next steps naturally unfold.

Sitting in meditation always gives me my next steps.

The key to this practice is listening to what comes through and trusting it. If you’re asked to call somebody or go for a bubble bath, do it! Trusting what comes through for you is key because what you’re given may not make sense at the time the message is received.

The universe works in mysterious ways so if you’ve asked for guidance from your angels, guides or loved ones, take whatever you’re given and run with it. This is how the intuitives do it, and it’s something everyone can do with a bit of practice. Once you’re in the habit of asking for help not only will you come unstuck, you’ll find your life flows a little easier too.
