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.

Sitting in the power

I didn’t actually know sitting in the power was ‘a thing’ until a couple of months ago, but many people swear they are able to increase their mediumship abilities by practising this magical technique on a frequent basis.

Sitting in the power is a way to merge energies within you and outside of you until the space is one. It’s like taking the ultimate goosebump feeling of standing in nature in pure overwhelment of it’s perfection, allowing it to flow through you, then learning it travels outside of you and returns back so perfectly that you are not actually a separate physical form… You are just God’s perfection at one with everything.

Sitting in the power is simply sitting in this pure state and allowing it to energize and lift you as you acknowledge this beautiful energy merging within you and outside of you.

To get into this state, sit quietly in a meditation and regulate your breath. You might like some music or some candles etc if props help you reach relaxation. Then, begin by imagining a beautiful white light pulsating in the solar plexus area. Concentrate on it, and with every breath see it expanding until it fills you entirely and leaves you feeling light and full of love. Once you’re illuminated by this light, expand it to surround you as big as you’d like to go. See your light merging with the divine light outside of you until it is all one. Tune in to how it feels. (It’s awe inspiring!) With this energy surrounding you, envision it flowing within you, outside of you, and returning to you with every breath. You are not separate from this light or limited by your physical form. You ARE this light.

Sitting in the power is taking this time to embrace your spirit and the connection you have with all that is, and feeling the wonder of consciously playing with this connection to divine energy. It’s a magical practice which over time strengthens the ability to work with spirit, but it’s not the intention to connect with guidance during this exercise. (Though guides have joined me on occasion!) This practice is relaxing as well, leaving anyone who sits in the power buzzing with energy and feeling pretty good.

Do you sit in the power to boost your mediumship skills? Do you call it something different? Do you *do* something different to tap into this energy? Share in the comments!

In the meantime I hope this helps you budding mediums!

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!

Lots of love as always! X

When you’re too depressed for gratitude

Last week I shared a post explaining what I do to get grateful when I’m not feeling it. I wanted to share the post because unless we’re very lucky, life isn’t mind blowingly exciting all of the time and for most of us, living in awe doesn’t come naturally.

The post was really well received and I had a lot of great feedback but I also received a message from someone who has depression and feels too low to be looking around in wonder regardless of the miracles the rest of us assure her are there. She asked me what *she* should do to feel happier and I thought it would be nice to share my answer here.

I believe self love is the best cure for anyone suffering with low moods. How we speak to ourselves and how we treat ourselves shapes our worlds, and our uncaring self habits tear us down on a daily basis and we’re not even aware of it.

Anyone who feels life is not doing it for them should look inwards first and see what they are telling themselves about their own life. Then they should find the most loving statement they can, and meditate on it daily for at least a month so that spiritual healing can begin. When we meditate with a mantra, our words either throw up what needs to be healed, or we start to feel better. I like ‘I love myself and I love the world’ as a general feel good affirmation but if you’re not there yet, try ‘I’m willing to learn to love myself’ or ‘I appreciate the strength I’m showing as I work towards feeling better’. Whatever makes you feel better is where your attention should be.

Self love mantras are not quick fixes. They are designed to lift you step by step over a period of time but they *do* work if you put effort into noticing your negative thoughts and replace them with a general but more positive statement. Consistency in using them is key but they work best when you are open to them working, so a trip to the doctor, an exercise programme, good sleep or a decent diet all might help you get to that place. Don’t struggle alone.

Alongside the mantras, taking time every day to look after YOU is a good idea. Give yourself some kindness by making space in the day for a quiet cuppa, going for a swim, or enjoying a good book. Most DEFINITELY get into the habit of praising yourself for your daily wins. Notice when you’ve done a fab job, helped someone or contributed. If something has gone well, give yourself a pat on the back.

Notice your thoughts and you’ll be in a good place to change. Are your thoughts negative? If so, your life is going to be tarnished by them.

You may not feel like challenging your thoughts straight away but if you start with thought awareness, you might just find you can begin, over time, to notice when you have been overly harsh, overly critical, or overly influenced by your current mood. You might even be able to give your thoughts over to your depression and know it’s not your true self shining through.

What are you telling yourself today? Could you find a better statement? 🙂

What’s your spirit guide sign?

Do you want to learn to communicate with your spirit guide? Depending on what you want to get out of your connection, noticing your spirit guide’s presence can be really quite easy!

If you genuinely want to work with your spirit guides and form strong links for communication to flow, you really need to read this article on meditation and build the foundations of trust from the bottom up. The instructions in the post will help you build you a strong, solid connection which in turn will lead to enhanced spiritual growth and developed psychic and mediumship ability.

But if all you’re interested in is receiving proof you actually *have* a spirit guide, or you want a little confirmation of assistance before you put the hours of work in, consider asking your guides to send you a sign to signal their presence.

Your sign can be anything you choose, from images to songs to numbers. Blue hearts are one of my signs, as are strawberries! Then, when you’ve chosen, you just need to ask your guides to send you a visual of your image to say hello. (You make your guides aware of your request by sending a quick prayer to them.) Your sign will be shown to you in a very short amount of time, provided you keep your eyes open for it. This means staying in the moment and being present! Do you wander around caught up in the past or fretting about your future? This is your only barrier to receiving communication.

Once you’ve received your visual, you then have the opportunity to ask your spirit support team yes/no questions because they can send your sign to indicate a yes response. Taking this further, over time you might learn of something you hear, smell, see or sense when your guides are near and that’s when the connection really gets strong!

So have a go at this today! And let me know how quickly you get your confirmation of your guides presence!

I’m excited to hear your success stories, and I look forward to hearing what your sign is!

How to be happier

Can we talk mindfulness this week? It seems to be a buzz word we all throw around as something we ought to practice more of but don’t!

This past week I have been moving from task to task more mindfully. I have been stopping myself every few minutes to check what I’m thinking, and I’ve been amazed at what I’ve learned about myself.

Had you asked me 2 weeks ago whether I was a positive person I’d have said yes! But what I’ve learned recently is that I do most of my life on autopilot, with very little feeling of gratitude. Perhaps this is why life for me is so very often average… I have nothing to complain about but I don’t launch out of bed in excitement each morning either.

How does life look for you? Are you like me, stuck in the same rut, day in, day out? Is life pleasant enough but not all that exciting? If so, what’s missing is mindfulness and the opportunity to practice gratitude that mindfulness brings.

Every moment gives us a chance to be grateful about *something* which is happening for us. The trouble is, 99% of what we do is done without thinking. We don’t give thanks for our legs when we walk out the door. We don’t give thanks for the ease at which we can buy breakfast. We don’t give thanks for safe roads as we commute and we don’t give thanks for the hot water and cosmetics which allow us to feel good as we show up for work. We sit at a desk without feeling gratitude for the comfort of our chair and we drink coffee without feeling thankful for our tastebuds. I could go on but you get the picture I hope!

So this week I would like to challenge you to pause every 5 minutes to check what you’re thinking. Are you practicing gratitude as you should be? Because if you’re not, don’t be surprised when life feels bland.

We have opportunities at any given moment to appreciate life and if we choose not to focus on appreciating, it’s no wonder we miss the miracles. I think as you have a go at this mindfulness challenge you’ll be surprised at how frequently you forget to check your thoughts and how often the hours pass by as you ‘get on’ with things without really registering how amazing your life truly is!

Have a go at increasing your happiness by taking time to be grateful. Imagine how fab life could appear if you found something to be thankful for every five minutes… You’d struggle to find time for too many negative moments!

Just so you know, being mindful also increases your chances of noticing your intuition coming through and your guides communicating with you.

If happiness isn’t enough, that in itself makes life a bit magical doesn’t it? 😉

Why meditation is vital if you want to channel

Twice this week I have been asked why meditation is so important when it comes to meeting spirit guides. So here’s the answer.

It’s true that meditation allows space for guides to come through, but in the early days of your spiritual journey in particular, meditation is vital because it allows us to learn about ourselves.

When we learn to meditate without expectation of anything weird and wonderful happening, we learn to feel for ourselves what happens to our energy during relaxation. We learn how meditation feels in general, what happens to our body temperature, what our minds tend to focus on, how various body parts feel, and what happens to our senses.

This means that when a guide or spirit comes through, (sometimes years later!) we know without doubt that changes in our energy have occured, and we are certain that the messages coming through are real.

If we skip this vital period of learning about ourselves, we can never really know for sure we are connecting with spirit because we have to rely on how others tell us we should feel during connection.

Without certainty of our own ability, we start to question whether our imaginations have come out to play and to be blunt, it IS very easy to be misled by ego when we want connection to our guides so much. When ego leads our quest for connection, it leads us to frustration and a feeling that ‘nothing is happening’ and that ‘I can’t do this’ because predictions made from this space come from human thoughts rather than spiritual channelling and are very rarely accurate.

Nobody can teach you what your default energy feels like, and nobody can teach you what guidance feels like either. It’s something you have to experience for yourself and this starts with a dedicated meditation practise and a willingness to know yourself inside out and back to front. This is why, to answer the original question, meditation is so important. How can you know something spiritual has happened if you aren’t aware of what ‘normal’ feels like?

There are a lot of ways to develop your own spiritual gifts but all of them start with this basic knowledge of self. You must be willing to put the effort in or you’ll not get very far.

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. 🙂

Wipe out worry with Archangel Chamuel

Call it worry, stressing or anxiety, but that nagging concern you have that things will go very belly up?

That’s you living in the future.

This year I have been working very hard, as part of my psychic development, to live in the moment. I’ve been learning everything I can about mindfulness and feeling at peace regardless of what’s going on and whilst it’s not been an easy challenge and there have been days when I’ve felt really very moody and anxious, (what can I say, I’m female!), living in the ‘now’ and refusing to think too far into the future has saved me an enormous amount of emotional energy.

When we worry, we’re playing out future scenarios in our minds which might never actually come about. We’re replaying worst case scenarios over and over again, with no proof at all that things will be so awful. Aside from not making us feel good, we’re wasting time that could be used for optimism and possible solutions, and we’re taking our focus away from the wonderful things that are happening now, missing joy that we could be experiencing.



If you struggle with worry, try making yourself a promise that if it isn’t happening within the next hour/3 hours/day, you will let it go and focus more on the good things that are immediately happening. Nothing wonderful happening? Then being present allows you to create some wonder.

Archangel Chamuel can help with this! Chamuel is a gorgeous angel who has a mission to bring peace to us all. He is the ‘finder’ Archangel so whether it’s car keys, your life purpose or your sense of inner calm you’re searching for, you can call him to you and ask for his assistance. Mention his name and he will hear you. A flash of light is often a sign our angels are near.

Ask him to take away your worries and replace them with solutions, then let the worries go, trusting that all will be well. Practise focusing on the moment so that you can actually enjoy the beauty and opportunities that are in front of you. Chamuel is busy working on your behalf so you have no concerns now.

Letting go of anxiety means you get to enjoy the love and beauty of the present moment without tarnishing it with fear. If life isn’t quite as sweet as you’d like it, mastering this new practise might well change your life.

There is plenty to leave us frightened and angry and we have every right to worry if we choose to, but lets be mindful that in doing so, we have absolutely no chance of finding answers as our focus is too caught up.

So try slowing down this week and taking life hour by hour. You might not wipe out worry in its entirety, but I bet you’ll destroy a good chunk of it. 🙂
