What if you feel you don’t belong?

Do you ever feel as though you don’t belong anywhere? Or that despite having people you care about around you, you don’t quite fit in with anyone in particular?

Well don’t panic! You feel this way because you remember your truth! Here is not home… the spirit realm is! We are here visiting Earth for a very short amount of time, and some of us are more sensitive to this knowledge than others!

Having said that, there are things you can do to feel more settled so that you don’t have to live in a permanent state of something missing for the next half of a decade. Grounding your energy is something you’ll forget to do at first, but is something which will decrease the ‘lost’ feeling if you stick at it.

Ready? Here goes:

1) Ground yourself often with breath work, food, sipping water, or walking barefoot in the grass or sand. All of these things help bring us back to the moment we are in.

2) Envision roots growing from under your feet as you plant yourself firmly in this energy plane. You are present and this is where you live for now.

3) Strengthen your root chakra by envisioning a red spinning disk of energy within the groin area. This will help root your energy.

4) Find your tribe and let them support you. Whatever you like doing, there’s an online group for it! You don’t have to be physically alone all of the time and laughing in particular is an amazing healer.

5) Carry grounding crystals. I like Hematite and Smoky Quartz for this.

6) Work with mantras when you find your mind floating. I adore ‘I am safe’ and ‘I am here’ to remind myself that I really only have ‘now’ to play with.

Do you struggle to belong? Do you have any more grounding tips to share?

The good news is that more of us are waking up. We might feel odd now, but odd is fast becoming the new normal!

5 crystals to boost skin health

If you’ve ever seen me in real life you’ll know my beauty routine doesn’t cover much more than a good wash and a spot of mascara. But if you’re more inclined to embrace looking your best and are on the quest for flawless skin, once again the crystals have got your back!


Fluorite is one of my favourite crystals for helping to clear mindless thoughts and gain clarity, but did you know it could also help you wrinkle less? Perhaps this is because more clarity equals less stress! The Fluorite above can be purchased at Charlottes Crystal Cabin. Isn’t it stunning?

Green Selenite helps to overcome the effects of aging on the skin. I sleep with this one under my pillow as it’s also very calming.

Yellow Apatite (above) helps with cell renewal, something which keeps our skin looking fresh. It also helps dissolve cellulite, not that you have any of course! As well as these things, Yellow Apatite is also said to boost psychic abilities 🙂

Rhodonite is an emotions healer, particularly good for soothing anger and aiding with forgiveness. This in itself reduces stress which helps us to stay young, but as an added bonus, Rhodonite is also said to help lessen the appearance of scarring.


And finally Carnelian (one of my favourite uplifting crystals), is said to stimulate the metabolism to help burn unwanted fat, and is also believed to help the body absorb more of the vitamins from your diet so that you can glow with vitality. As a bonus alongside making you beautiful, Carnelian will also boost your financial abundance! The Carnelian above can also be purchased at Charlottes Crystal Cabin.

I would suggest sleeping with these crystals near your bed, wearing them in jewellery, or meditating with them to have them work for you. Some crystals such as Selenite don’t like water, so be mindful of that before making infused drinks or bathing with them.

Do you have these crystals in your collection? What do you use them for? I’d love to get the crystal chat going ♥

Crystal infused water

Looking through my facebook feed I know that many of you crystal owners took full advantage of the full moon last weekend and set your crystals out to cleanse and absorb some of that powerful manifesting energy.

But you know what I like to do also? I like to place my crystals in some spring water and leave it out overnight, so that I might drink that manifesting energy too!

When we place crystals in water, (note; do your research as some crystals don’t like to get too wet!) our liquid infuses with the crystal energy and is then perfect for sipping with intention the next day. I like to set my healing intentions out before I drink, then thank the water for the healing it is giving me. As I sip, I imagine the water moving through my cells, clearing up whatever isn’t working for me at the time. And it seems to work wonders.

When the dog was Ill, I had bloodstone in a jug of water which I kept topping up and decanting into his bowl. Bloodstone for example is a wonderful cleanser and works well to clear infections, clean blood, and work alongside any organs that do this work for us such as our kidneys and liver. (in the interest of declaring all, he did see the vet too!)

If you’re lucky enough to already have perfect health, maybe you could consider infusing some water with abundance energy or peace energy! Blue lace agate springs to mind as a crystal that would work well for this!

Have you enjoyed success with crystal infused products? Let me know so I can try too! There seems no end to the things our crystals can do 🙂

Connecting to spirit with Selenite

When your crystal pals rave so hard about certain crystals, (Hollie Stark!) you know you’ve got to get your hands on them yourself! I’ve owned my beautiful Selenite for a couple of months now, but I wanted some time to really get working with it before I put up this post.

Selenite is said to be the crystal of choice for anyone wishing to raise their vibration in general. I found it to be a very soothing gem, and I credit it with calming my anxieties and smoothing over tension within myself particularly around my time of month when I generally have less patience than normal.

Selenite is said to help with opening the crown chakra, connecting with the angelic realm, seeing the bigger picture, and helping with clarity. This makes it the perfect crystal for anyone wishing to make connection with spirit, whether that’s with guides or angels. Of course you still need to put in the work, but I found that meditating with this, as well as sleeping with it under my pillow, made my connection to my guides feel a lot stronger. I could feel messages being passed through me with such certainty that the second guessing that is sometimes there during readings didn’t have a chance of tripping me up. (Being honest here, I do still question what comes through!)

As well as being beautiful, (though be careful – it does seem to chip!) Selenite is so powerfully in tune with loving source energy that it is now a perminant fixture by my bed and in my jewellery box. It takes everything you need for contacting spirit (trust, love, clarity, protection) and amplifies it to make angel and spirit connections far easier.

Don’t have a piece yet? Sign up to the your spiritual self newsletter on the top right of his post and you could win one! The draw is open worldwide, and the winner will be picked at random from all subscribers at the end of 2017. The crystal will be posted out to you in January.

Good luck!

Agate, Carnelian, Moldavite and Larimar.

Over the summer holidays we took a day trip to Swanage. We went mostly for the beach and the ice cream, but there is a lovely little crystal shop there called Natural Wonders which entices me in every time I visit.

On the counter as I walked in was a beautiful blue lace agate bracelet which just called to me. I initially walked past, but then went back to it. Blue lace agate is a calming crystal for me, but it also helps with self expression, particularly when it comes to fear we might have around being judged. This crystal helps heal the throat area, and is linked to the throat chakra.

Next up was a piece of moldavite. Now I know this piece is not pure due to its low price and it’s calcite description but I’m going to work with it and see what it does anyway! Pure moldavite raises vibration, enhances spiritual skills, deepens development, sharpens intuition and throws all the issues you need to address to the surface! Basically, it enhances everything!!

Carnelian was my third choice. I have some carnelian already, but the colour of this one caught my eye. Carnelian is said to aid with creativity, motivation, concentration and perception. As I’m writing this I’m thinking it might be a good crystal for a writer to work with. Carnelian is also said to boost metabolism.

Finally, I was drawn to a piece of larimar. (My second piece!) Larimar is said to be great for healing past life issues, and for enhancing spiritual growth. It is a bringer of peace and love, and is said to help its user release feelings of fear and guilt. I am using this crystal at the moment to work through soul issues I’ve carried over from previous lives.

Dreams and psychic development

One of the challenges many of us have when developing our psychic abilities is silencing our inner chatter, thoughts and noise enough for the subtle guidance to come through. Whether you want to meet your spirit guide or connect with a loved one on the other side, night time can be an easy way of sinking into that peace you need to work with.

My first experience of receiving messages from spirit was through my dreams, (NB you’ll know you’re not dreaming – the energy and visions are just too intense! ) and from there, everything really started developing.

If you are someone who struggles to remember their dreams but would really like to be able to for the messages they can bring, here are 3 tools to help you out and help you turn your dreams into part of your spiritual practice so that you too can make the psychic connections you really want to develop.

Essential Oils are easy to get hold of these days and so very easy to use. You have the option of dabbing the oils straight onto your skin for a direct hit or, if you want to make a bottle stretch and have your room smelling wonderful, making up a spray for your pillow. Frankincense is a well known oil for helping its user raise their vibration and be more open to the spiritual realm which is an ideal boost when you want to increase your night visions or heighten your meditation time. The only catch with this one is it can be expensive although in my book, this oil is worth it for the magic it brings to the table. The higher our vibrations, the easier it is for us to connect with spirit and achieve our psychic development goals and Frankincense is THE oil to get you there.
As an added bonus, when you apply Frankincense directly onto the skin it is the best for reducing wrinkles too! If you are looking to clean up your skincare routine alongside becoming more spiritually aligned, this is the way to do it. (and a bottle lasts a very long time!)

Clary sage will calm you, relax you, and help you regulate hormones which all leads to better quality sleep and therefore, more vision time. It’s perfect as a compliment to Frankincense, or can be used on it’s own to help you drop off and stay snoozing. My friend Kristen will help you purchase your good quality oils (they have to be pure to work so stay away from the £2.99 specials!) when you check out her website with Young Living HERE.

Crystals help with just about every goal you have! Meditating with them before sleep or tucking them under your pillow will often help with dream recall which is half the battle when it comes to receiving spiritual messages at night. 2 crystals especially good for this type of work are Celestite and Herkimer diamond. Celestite is a very high vibration stone which helps it’s user connect with the angelic realm and stimulate clairvoyant abilities, whilst Herkimer diamond stimulates psychic abilities and clears any blocks which might be preventing the flow of spiritual energy.

Finally, when remembering dreams, time is of the essence! Before sleeping, say a little prayer and ask your guides to help you remember what you dream because setting intention is a huge part of being successful. Then have a pencil and notebook by your bed and write down what you remember as soon as you wake up. Even key words can help you recall when you go back to your notes at a later date.

Over time, even if you don’t get anything that makes sense straight away, you’ll slowly start to build a picture of how you dream and the types of symbols or spiritual messages you receive. Once you have this foundation you’ll be able not only to build on the information received by asking spirit for further clarification, but you’ll show your intention to communicate, which spirit will be keen to work with and will help you develop.

Crystals for psychic development and more!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared what I’ve been purchasing crystal wise, but I’ve recently gone through a spell of shopping!

I tend to go through phases of crystal buying. Just lately I’ve been getting ready to do some ancestral healing so more than a handful of new crystals have been added to the collection.

These aren’t *all* going onto the ancestral grid, but these are the new crystals I’m currently working with. I’m particularly drawn to Carnelian at the moment… 🙂

Here goes!

Moonstone is my first new buy, from a beautiful little shop in Salisbury. Moonstone is said to enhance both intuition and psychic ability, as well as soothe the monthly cycle and ease period pain.

My new Shaman Quartz piece was a birthday present from my auntie who knows me so well and gifts me crystals to support whatever I’m working on. Shaman Quartz is wonderful for deepening meditation, supporting dreamwork, and heightening visualization. I’ve received some beautiful guidance with this in my presence!

Carnelian is said to boost energy, stimulate creative thinking, promote self belief, and support positive choices. I just feel good when wearing Carnelian. It’s a real feel good crystal and has eased my retrograde symptoms! (This one is also good for writers!)

Danburite is one of the new crystals going into my ancestral healing grid. It’s said to promote a higher state of consciousness, help leave the past behind, and support dreamwork.

Finally, Petalite is also going on the grid! Petalite is said to help us connect with the angelic realm, release negativity, cut chords tying us to the past, and boost positive energy.

Do any of these crystals call to you? Have you been buying something else? You’ll have to let me know in the comments!

5 crystals to help you find love

Are you ready to attract some love into your life? This week I have 5 crystals for you which might help you in your quest for a loving relationship, particularly if you used them all together.

Rose Quartz is the love crystal we all know of but that’s because it’s brilliant at its job! Place a piece by your bed or wear some over your heart and it will help you call in the perfect romance! Rose Quartz works by opening the heart chakra to love.

Chrysanthemum Stone helps us release love into the world, as well as see things from a more loving perspective. Law of attraction dictates that we always get more of what we’re focusing on, so with this crystal helping us to give more love, we can’t help but receive more back!

Ruby is the passion crystal! Not only does this crystal attract more passionate relationships, it also encourages it’s users to have a passion for life! Use this crystal to have fun whilst you’re waiting for your new partner to find you!

Celestite is a crystal which helps us have calmer conversations by creating peace and smoothing over communication issues. This crystal is perfect for anyone who struggles to express themselves. All relationships need good communicators within them to sustain the test of time.

Finally, Sugilite is a crystal which teaches us how to live our truth. If you aren’t sure who you are and what you want, start with a piece of this and figure yourself out first. By the time your ideal partner shows up, you’ll be happy, sassy and confident in who you are.
And isn’t that more important than trying to fit what someone else wants you to be?

I hope this helps you! Let me know if you purchase any of these beautiful crystals. I want to hear your success stories!

5 healing crystals

As well as looking beautiful, I love how crystals can compliment our physical healing. All crystals help with wellbeing in one way or another, but most have several uses making it tricky for new crystal users to know where to start when choosing essential pieces. I thought today I would post very briefly about 5 crystals I know of and share with you their healing abilities.

Please note if you click through, you’ll be supporting this site and keeping me in nail polish so thank you!

Amber
Amber is said not to be a crystal as such but is still treated as one. Amber is believed to be fabulous for cleansing the body so all the organs benefit from this one. Amber is said to particularly help the kidneys, bladder and liver. I would use Amber whenever I felt I needed a reboot or to clear general lethargy.

Black Tourmaline
Tourmaline is said to be the crystal you need for healing the mind. It’s said to help with self belief, confidence and worry.

Aquamarine
I love this crystal for it’s beauty! Aquamarine is believed to help with gland and thyroid problems, balancing them out when they are not efficiently working.

Sodalite
I actually have a piece of Sodalite, purchased to help balance my metabolism. I haven’t suddenly become a skinny minnie, but I haven’t put any weight on either despite changing my diet and adding in a few more carbs! (Some of us need carbs to curb the hunger!)

Rhodonite
Finally, Rhodonite is said to aid fertility. It’s the piece to wear to balance the cycle before baby moves in!
Rhodonite is also said to help with problems of the ear, including the balance issues that can come with ear and sinus troubles.

* * * * *

Once you’ve purchased your crystal, cleanse it with spring water or leave it overnight in the light of the moon, then ask it for the help you need. Carry it around with you, sleep with it under your pillow, treat it with love and meditate with it. If you are guided to take action or to look into new doctors or treatments, go for it knowing your crystal is helping you out. Otherwise, enjoy the way the crystal works with the energy within you to improve your health using the body’s own natural healing ability.

Crystals don’t take the place of modern energy, but they do have the ability to compliment it in a big way.

Dreams and their messages

Did you have sweet dreams last night? I did! I’m a firm believer that dreams help us notice our sub conscious thoughts coming to light and so whilst I don’t religiously look up meanings or keep dream journals, I do take note of frequent dreams and analyse the ones I strongly remember the next morning.

dog-sleeping-1404568

Over the weekend I dreamt I had to wee in public because there were no doors on the toilet cubicles! I was stuck, torn between desperately needing a wee and not wanting to pull my knickers down in front of people!
This dream only lasted a few minutes but it stuck in my mind because I can think of 2 other nights when I’ve had minor variations of this dream!

A friend looked the meaning up for me and I think the dream suggests my ego still gets in the way… I am still controlled by how I look in the eyes of other people. Most people are, but it’s nice to receive a message that reminds me to keep working on living from my spirit rather than my detached, human ego.

Dreams can give us all sorts of messages and the best ones are messages we don’t want to address in the cold light of day. When we take note of feelings or problems being pushed to the front, or listen when spirit speaks to us through our dreams, we have the chance to grow as people. The more honest we can become with ourselves, the more free we feel when it comes to living as we are meant to, in a state of love and joy. It’s not easy getting uncomfortable and admitting your faults or fears and so dreams address them for you at a time when you’re less resistant to processing them.

I use Lapis Lazuli for my dream work but you could also place some Clear Quartz or Amethyst under your pillow too. These crystals will help you remember your dreams and process them if you wish to. Writing a journal of your dreams is always a good way to get things out on paper and start to move through the work needed to let go of fears and make a stronger connection with spirit.

When was the last time you had a very vivid dream? Care to share it?!

Love as always,

V X
