Holding Hands is a Great Stress Reliever

Holding hands is a great stress reliever and good for your heart.

Holding hands is a powerful non-verbal communication which can positively impact your life!

Your hands are an intimate expression of yourself, reaching out and receiving information at the same time, as your hands have a large concentration of nerve endings within the palm and fingertips.

When you become stressed, you release cortisol, and your skin becomes more sensitive. When a loved one/partner or friend holds your hand for support oxytocin is released and this strengthens empathy and communication between the two of you which helps you feel more loved, content, safe and better about yourself. This then helps to reduce the increased blood pressure that occurs while you are stressed, and the warm touch creates a comfortable feeling within the heart which again helps to reduce the blood pressure even more.

Can you remember, as a child, your mother or father holding your hand as they taught you how to cross the road safely – firstly holding your hand in support and then, when you became more confident, allowing you to walk alone? Holding your hand created a feeling of safety and support while you were learning to overcome the huge challenge of such a task!

Many of you are already aware of the 7 major chakras but did you know that your entire body is filled with numerous, smaller chakras that have their own special functions, helping to purify your own life energies and contributing to the harmony of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual self.

Your hand chakras are among the most important ones. The palm chakras can help you heal – just for the moment you could imagine they are like a magnet! Can you remember a time when you were given some shocking news and your mind went blank? Or a time when you have bumped into something hard, and it hurt – you automatically put your hand to that area. Here’s why the chakra in the palm of your hand is acting like a magnet – it helps to bring more blood to that area to help release and heal the trauma, lowering the cortisol and adding oxytocin all at the same time.

Here are a few other ways your palm chakras help to support the main chakras within you:

  • You unconsciously place your hand to your throat when there is a debate, argument, or confusion in a subject, you are unable to find/receive the right words to respond which indicates the energy level within your throat chakra is low.
  • When you are depressed, confused or outraged, you will place your hand instinctively to your forehead. This is your third eye chakra helping you to find a clearer way out of your situation.
  • When you hear some touching news or become excited, you will often put your hand on your chest, which is where the heart chakra is located, to support the feeling that is happening there.

Every day you are using the energy in your hands to communicate with what is being received and given out in your life, whether you have a conscious awareness of it or not!

The colour of the hand chakras is predominantly white and has all the other colours of the chakras within it. Healers know the importance of keeping their hand chakras clear, energised, and strong. They are used as a powerful tool to be able to scan the aura of a client – enabling them to receive information about the persons auric field, chakras, and their psychical energy, discover where blockages may be and then be able channel the universal energy effectively to their clients to help assist in the healing and regeneration energy they receive.

When your palm chakras are not balanced and are underactive then you may find that you have the inability to ask for help from others, refuse healing, and find yourself shutting down and staying away from people and what the world has to offer, silently suffering with the illnesses and depression that you may be carrying.

When your palm chakras are overactive you will find you want to touch everything, may have itchy palms, rashes, skin peel and are not able to let go of issues, find that you get overwhelmed easily and soak up other people’s emotions and problems bringing them into your own energy field. This will leave you feeling depleted, exhausted and can even lead to depression.

When your palm chakras are balanced you will have enhanced creativity, be able to manifest the things you want in your life more and give and receive without expectation or guilt. You will be able express your love more clearly and reach out to life confidently, handling problems more easily.

You also have chakras in each of your fingertips and each finger is also connected to one of the earth elements:

  • Thumb represents Fire
  • The index finger represents the Air
  • The middle finger represents Space/Ether
  • The ring finger represents the Earth
  • The pinkie finger represents Water

The palm chakra is reflected in the crown chakra giving a direct connection to source. As an intuitive holistic healer, I connect with the universal source energy through my crown chakra and channel this energy down through my arms and out of my hand chakras to the client. Being able to see auras it is always interesting to see where the healing energy travels to within the client and what colours are used during the process. The bulk of the energy leaves through my palm chakras and from my fingertip’s separate laser streams of energy often target specific areas that need finer attention.

You receive energy through your left palm and give energy with your right palm.

When one of your palm chakras is out of balance then this could reflect that you are having some issues with giving or receiving.

When a person has pain in their shoulders, arms, and hands it can reflect that they are unable to express themselves easily or clearly; are not able to create what they want; or that they have tried to do this and feel they have failed; or another person has put a stop to the creativity, so they withdraw all their energy back into their heart.

Here is a simple but effective way to activate the chakra energy in your hands:

  • Vigorously rub your hands together, this will stimulate your hand chakras, then allow your hands to hang freely, you might notice a tingling sensation in your palms. This is nothing to be worried about, as this is a normal symptom, which indicates that the energy in the palm of your hands has been activated.
  • Now, bring your hands up again in front of you and hold them about 4 inches apart, then gently widen the distance and then shorten the distance between your hands – you will begin to feel the energy between both of your hands!
  • Continue to do this and at the same time notice the feeling and how you are sensing the experience.

This is an easy, yet powerful, way to connect to your energetic body and you may like to continue to explore this by passing your hands over various parts of your body and notice what happens. Relax into the awareness of it and have fun!

Another simple way of cleansing the energy in your hands is to put a teaspoon of rock salt in the palm of your hand, add your normal squirt of liquid hand soap and wash as normal. This will help remove any blocked or excess energy from your hand chakras, leave your hands exfoliated and soft, and, for you ladies, you are now ready to finish off with your favourite hand cream!

So, next time you are having problems with your hands ask yourself are you having problems with giving and receiving? Maybe, you can’t hold on to or can’t release something/someone or want to reach out and touch something/someone, yet are finding fear and insecurity are holding you back?

In today’s world we have all had to become extra vigilant over washing our hands, often using strong alcohol-based products that are at the front of every store due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I would like to encourage you to do some of your own research and find out about more natural products for cleaning your hands as many toxic chemicals can easily enter your bloodstream through your skin, causing and adding to our already low immune systems, illnesses etc.

I would like to end this newsletter with something for you to ponder on!

There are many people who choose to want to be safe and protected at all times – keeping themselves locked away, lonely and isolated whilst blocking out many life experiences.

I would like you to imagine for the moment you are sterilised, clear water and being kept in a clear glass jar, the jar is your shield to keep out all contamination and negative energies.

Purity does not consist of guarding yourself against all forms of contact in life by keeping yourself shut up in a jar!

This kind of purity is created from fear, and thinking only in terms of self-protection, is useless and can even be harmful.

True purity is the water that gushes from a spring, and this gushing force repels everything that is harmful, negative, dirty, and dark.

True purity is the purity of crystal-clear gushing water, nourishing the fields and gardens along its journey, soaking into the hearts and souls of everyone it encounters!

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Safe New Year

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year

December gives you the opportunity to be inspired and create new visions for the coming future. Being winter it reminds you this is only one critical part of life’s continuous cycle, it’s a time to slow down, rest and renew your energies before the re-birth of spring.

It only seems a short while ago that I was wishing you Happy Christmas for 2019. The months have passed so quickly and 2020 has certainly been a year that will be remembered – so different from what any of us would have imagined at the start of the year! It’s been a roller coaster of ups and downs with challenges and changes that have left many feeling unsettled and uncomfortable.

Yet, during this time there have also been many positive changes as well!

It has given you the time to de-clutter and sort out what was important to you physically, mentally and emotionally; giving you the opportunity to let go of what and who were no longer required/needed in your life, and time to reflect on the spiritual lessons you have learned this year.

Amongst the rush of preparing for Christmas – please ensure you take some time out in your busy schedules to re-evaluate your intentions as you get ready to start afresh in 2021.

Make choices that will change your life for the better, take a look at what you have outgrown, and as you choose to let go of them, you will create the space and time to be able to have new experiences and try some new activities that you did not have the time for before.

Allow your ideas to flow and then take action!

When you focus your thoughts and energy on achieving what kind of life you would like to have then the attention you give to it will increase the energy and new opportunities will open up for you with ease. The wheel of life is continually turning one cog at a time so be patient and persistent. Remember that even if you are unable to see the results immediately there are changes going on behind the scene so your extra effort will be worth it – do not give up!

Everything around us is continuously changing and evolving, there is never a finish line, just another lap to do!

How will you do things differently in 2021?

Remember, you are not the same person you were a year ago as you are always changing, evolving and having new experiences. Should an experience pop up next year similar to one that you had during this last year, then take the time to be still and work out what you could do differently this time.

When you choose to experience life fully with all its ups and downs, the happiness and sadness, the beautiful and the ugly then it enables you to grow and learn from each and every experience you have, strengthening your soul and enabling you to reach your full potential.

Life is constantly moving you forward, taking you outside of your comfort zone in order for you grow. Learn to trust in the unknown and enjoy the adventures of the journey!

Completely let go of any hurt from the past – keep the memory and the experience as information that you can learn from, yet, let go of the hurt as it is only you who is suffering from it and that hurt will hold you back from so many new and fresh opportunities.

Create the time to listen to your soul, that quiet inner voice that never shouts, and follow its guidance as you navigate the wonderful year ahead.

Remember, opportunity knocks on your door every day, so make sure you get up and open it. Just like a visitor knocking on your door, if you take too long to answer, the opportunity, like any visitor, will move on.

Become enthusiastic about each day; be excited about what it will bring, maybe there will be a new person to meet or a different place to visit.

Experience each day in full and have fun!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year and as you move forward one step at a time, gaining mastery over your life, you continue to learn how the subtle and not so subtle energies of the universe work, helping you to have the happy, healthy and abundant lifestyle you deserve!

So, tie up your loose ends, knowing new beginnings are just around the corner and create a lovely Christmas 2020, filling it with happy memories, laughter and love.

If you would like any help in identifying any issues that may be blocking you from moving forward in 2021 I am here to help you move forward and create those changes you truly deserve.

*I will be taking my Christmas and New Year Holiday from the 24th December and will be available again for guidance and healing sessions on the 4th January 2021 where I look forward to reconnecting with you.

What Masks Do You Wear?

As we move into the last few weeks of 2020 it has certainly been a time of seeing many different masks being worn, from delightful handmade ones, some covered in sequins, the NHS style and even clear acrylic ones!

These masks are being worn to help protect others and yourself from the pandemic of Covid-19 and when you get back home after being out in public it is definitely a relief to take them off – to be able to relax and breathe more easily.

Yet, we all wear other types of masks on a daily basis – they can hide many emotional and mental fears, pain, anxieties and insecurities to name a few and sometimes a person can forget to take the mask off!

Many of us wear masks that are fairly transparent and can easily be removed when we are with people that we feel safe and comfortable with. At times a person will wear a professional mask which is healthy and appropriate to the situation. One certainly would not expect to hear about a doctor’s or a dentist’s personal life problems when you’ve booked an appointment for yourself.

Maybe you can remember a time when you were feeling low and out of sorts and somebody asked you how you were and even though you wanted to, and perhaps needed to say this, the timing was not right and you replied with a smile that all was well and you held in those upset emotions behind the mask of a smile.

How about when a mother has had a long, hard and stressful day at work and then puts on a huge smile to greet her children from school, completely hiding how she really feels as she listens to her children’s day’s activities and then heads off to start to prepare dinner for all of the family. She may feel it is not the right time to take off her mask and for some people the mask never comes off!

What about a father who puts in long hours at a job he hates – saying yes to any overtime that may be offered. Inside he is worried about being able to pay the mortgage, the bills and keeping his family in the best lifestyle possible. Maybe, he is not even able to share his concerns with his wife.

There are so many different types of masks that a person can wear or you may even think of them as a persona.

Here are a few that you may recognise:

The Humourist Mask:

Humour can be a great defence mechanism.  By telling jokes to avoid sincere discussions enables the Humourist to keep conversations from getting too real or deep and having to deal with any uncomfortable conflict. The jokes and comedy serve as protective shield and doesn’t allow anyone in or to get close; often this mask, when used with sarcasm, has deep rooted pain and loneliness even if the person is in a relationship.

The Overachiever Mask:

This mask enables a person, often unconsciously, to pursue perfection as a defence against being annihilated. They believe if everything is done just right, then their world cannot be smashed into tiny pieces and fall apart.

While receiving praise for being a perfectionist can provide some relief, it leaves them in fear of things going wrong and they then live in constant worry and anxiety of what may happen in the future.

The Cool Guy/Gal Mask:

With this mask the person will appear cool and calm on the surface, seemingly unaffected by any chaos or conflict that goes on around them. However, beneath the surface out of sight from others they have bottled up emotions which play havoc with their health. They will often find a small amount of relief by snapping at people who are not close to them – like a shop assistant for being slow while handling their purchases. The anger can build up like a pressure cooker and in some cases result in a nervous breakdown or becoming angry over what would normally be a trivial incident.

The People Pleaser Mask:

This person will go to desperate lengths to get the approval of those around him or her, because their sense of identity is largely based on what others think of them. They will always ask the advice from friends, doctors, co-workers and even strangers as they do not have a strong foundation to believe in their own self-worth which makes them an easy target for other controlling people and are easily influenced which may not be in their best interests.

The Control Freak:

The control freak uses order and power to achieve a sense of security. By making sure everything is in its proper place to relieve their fear of the unknown and uncertainty. Even a mother hen could be a control freak not letting anyone out of her sight, and assuming responsibility for all those around her, even when they don’t want to be cared for. An owner of a business always interfering with the roles of their staff, believing they can always do it better and when the control freak gets pulled away from a plan, they fall to pieces, losing the structure of their life.

They are many more different types of mask that people wear including the Martyr, the Bully and the mask where somebody will insult and put them-selves down first, believing that if they do it first then nobody can then hurt them and this then stops them from being able to have intimate relationships with others.

Can you think of any other masks people wear to hide behind?

Wearing a mask can be both positive and negative, when wearing one in the positive it can help bring out an inner strength, help to create boundaries in different social settings etc. Yet, when you are continuously hiding your true self behind a variety of different disguises this is unhealthy for you not just on a physical level, but mentally and emotionally as well. Trapped negative mental thoughts and emotions leads to stress and anxiety which, in time, leads to physical illnesses.

One can change their masks so habitually that they do not consciously notice that they are doing it, this can be very draining to their vitality and keep them stuck in the past over childhood wounds, sadness and depression or anger.

You were not born with masks – You put them on, so you can take them off!

By identifying your protective masks/shields, you can begin to heal from past hurts and enjoy deeper intimacy with your loved ones, enabling you to live your life to your full potential. This in turn brings you the feeling of relief that you are now able to really be you!

When you remove the masks that no longer serve you for your highest good – then healing can begin, you will be much happier and have less inner conflict. Be able to make better decisions and have more self-control in your life, be able to resist social pressure and have more tolerance and understanding of others.

Over the past 25 years with all the healing work that I have done helping others it has been my experience that when a person accepts and appreciates who they truly are then as well as being able to fully love themselves again, their lives begin to transform helping them to enjoy each day with more vitality and pleasure in a life that is more authentic, balanced and exciting.

Just Breathe

Take a moment now to stop and notice how you are breathing.

Are you breathing through your nose or your mouth?

Are you breathing in a way that your stomach rises and falls naturally with each breath or is your stomach held in?

We know that there are many different ways that a person can breathe – yet we were designed to breathe in certain ways for a reason.

When you watch a small baby or child sleeping you will notice that they breathe through their nose, filling their lungs deeply with air which extends their stomach and they are so relaxed. Have you ever had the thought “I wish I could just sleep like a baby”?

When you get yourself into an anxious or stressful situation your breathing automatically changes to help you out. It is designed that way. When you go into flight or fight mode then the first thing that happens is your pupils dilate to help you see what is going on around you and your heartbeat increases, preparing itself for action, and then you begin to breathe through your mouth – short shallow breaths through your chest. At the same time you begin to shut down parts of your nervous system and decrease the blood flow to your digestive organs as what is needed in this moment is the blood flow to your muscles in order to run away or stay and fight!

Your body is now ready to take survival action. It may not be the age of the sabre-tooth tiger any more, yet, your body does not know that and anything that triggers the flight or fight mode like having to go for a job interview; confronting somebody over an issue or worrying about the future and its unknown can create fear, thus, stimulating the flight, fight or even freeze system to take action.

Your nose was designed as your breathing tube and when you breathe through your nose the body knows it is safe and it can relax. Your mouth was designed to eat with and as a backup breathing tube for stressful situations e.g. when running on the treadmill you will breathe through your mouth as your body comes under stress when performing exercise. So, when you are breathing through your mouth, your body takes it as a signal that you are in a stressful situation. You can often become stuck in this mode: the muscles in your upper back become tight, your shoulders become hunched and, consequently, your body is not able to deliver the essential oxygen it needs for the rest of your body.

It could be that you may have not been breathing correctly for many years. This would take a toll on your body, your mind and emotions, so, check in regularly with how you are breathing. When you notice that you are unnecessarily breathing through your mouth, stop what you are doing and roll your shoulders back – this also helps to straighten your back and lift your heart. Take a deep breath in and exhale out, make it nice and long, just like when you give a big sigh. Your body recognises this as a sign that it is okay to begin to relax and then begin to breathe through your nose, deeply into your lungs allowing your stomach to rise and fall. As you start to feel relaxed, safe and calm your breath will find its own natural rhythm.  Your thoughts will become slower and clearer and any unwanted emotions will subside.

As an Intuitive Holistic Healer I am very aware of how trapped emotions can affect your mental energy, your physical body and your energy field – some of which you may have held onto for many years; perhaps from a childhood incident, from a breakdown in a relationship or from the loss of a loved one. When emotions become stuck within the physical body many different illnesses can occur over time from being tired and feeling stuck to things that are more challenging like autoimmune diseases.

Healing can help you release stuck energies and although you may feel that you are not looking for therapy, I can offer you a safe place to reflect on your journey, release stuck emotions and explore who you are and who you are becoming. My approach is always tailored to individual needs and I believe in sharing with my clients many skills and strategies that will enable them to help themselves as they move forward in life, helping them to find Passion, Purpose and Peace.

Your Intuition Matters

Every person on the planet has Intuition but not every person chooses to listen to it.

Over the last 6 months so much in our day to day lives has changed due to Covid-19 and with so many new rules that are continuously being changed, confusion and chaos has set in – as we are being told what to do and how to do it – sending many peoples Solar Plexus into a spin and raising their cortisol levels higher!

As this new “abnormal normal” pace of life continues it can be easy to shut down and become conditioned to do as you are told, even if it does not make sense or resonate in a good way with you, as fear continues to grow within while you try to carry on in a normal way that no longer feels normal.

2020 has certainly been a journey that is not over yet as more changes are on their way and although it will be uncomfortable for a while longer this wakeup call has been needed so that the whole world can wake up and take stock of the damage that has been done to the earth and its residents – the animals, birds, plants, insects, the weather and the sea to name a few. Then there is us, the human population, with so many still totally unconnected to the energy of the earth, themselves and the damage being done all around them!

With so many changes happening rapidly around us it is giving us the opportunity to notice more of the imbalances and injustices in life and allowing the human race to bond together and speak up to heal the planet and all the different forms of life that live on it (including ourselves) so we can create a world where all lives can evolve and co-create together.

It is really important in times of troubled changes and huge transformations that you re-learn how to connect to your intuition and go within for the answers you seek as life continues to change to ensure that you are following your own path and not being led in a direction that is not good for your soul.

It is time to stop looking outside of yourself for the answers and although Google and advice from your friends can be valuable at times, the most important resource of all is often neglected – your own INTUITION.

Even as a small child you could name all five of your senses – sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell as these relate to the existing world around us that we can actually see, hear, touch, taste and smell in the three dimensional world we live in.

On an energetic level there is so much more going on in the Universe than can be observed by the five senses alone and there is one invisible sense that every human on Earth has and it is called “Intuition”.

Intuition expresses itself through a “knowing” that cannot be explained by fact or thought, but through a deep inner feeling that words often cannot explain. It is the main/first language of Intuition where you feel it in your Solar Plexus, your gut, it is a feeling and not at all logical!

It is a feeling that senses what is right for you even before your mind has time to process the situation or even before the situation actually happens. It is there to protect you – alerting you to potential danger as well as assuring you when something is right for you to proceed ahead. It is like an internal compass; continuously guiding you and helping you feel comfortable even if you are still not certain on a logical level.

How many times have you had a feeling not to do something and then on a logical level, because it did not make sense, decided to follow through on it – only to regret it afterwards wishing you had paid more attention to that feeling, that knowing, that gut reaction?

In today’s society it is not often taught to follow your Intuition – rather it focuses on the analytical mind and critical thinking skills. Your Intuition is a powerful survival instinct and if you feel something is not right then give it your full attention and respond to it, as it is not wasting your time, take the time to feel into it, listen to it and then follow up if needed with the help of the rational parts of your brain to achieve a balance in helping you make the best decisions.

It is essential when developing your Intuition that you TRUST in what you are feeling and take action, before self-doubt sets in. The more you trust and continue to take action, the more your Intuition will grow, decisions will come easily and you will never feel regretful about them.

When you are in tune with your Intuition you will be able to sense the meaning in things and have an understanding of concepts and connections beyond your everyday knowledge.

One of the biggest signs that you are not tuned into your Intuition is the feeling of confusion, struggling to make the right decisions, the lack of clarity. Another sign is that you allow and expect somebody else to make all your decisions for you or saying “Yes” to people all the time without putting yourself first!

When you are listening to your Intuition you will be able to say “No” when it is not in alignment with your higher self!

When your Intuition is blocked you lose the ability to interpret it properly and end up making ego and mind-based choices or from fear which leads you to regretting your decisions.

To improve your Intuition you need to be willing to go with flow, to be flexible about changing plans and, above all, TRUST as your Intuition leads you forward in your journey of life.

You need to slow down and even stop at times to listen to the feelings that your Intuition is giving you. Take the time in your busy life schedule to stop and check in with how you are feeling throughout the day, whether it be sitting quietly, taking a walk or doing a short meditation.

Add time for your Intuition to your “To Do List” making it a top priority throughout the day and give yourself the gift of receiving the wisdom, knowledge and protection that you truly deserve that will enable you to become your authentic self and live a life that is more balanced, safe and secure, giving you experiences that you will not regret and new opportunities to enjoy!

When you listen to that feeling inside, you won’t be confused, you’re inner knowing and outer synchronicities will align with a decision that will take you towards the right path for you. As you develop more trust with what you feel then your Intuition will get stronger and also then send you information in other ways – through a thought which will arrive when you were not consciously thinking, an image or vision of something, maybe the words of a song that will have meaning etc.

True Intuition will never put you down or support destructive attitudes or behaviour. Whereas fear will have a physical reaction like a racing heart, mental confusion, sweating, a feeling of running away, anger etc. Your Intuition will have clear unemotional, yet compassionate messages that feel right and also feel detached from your personal emotions – a bit like when you are watching a film at the cinema.

Another way which may help you understand how your Intuition is communicating with you is to liken it to Wi-Fi. You cannot see it, yet its energy is connecting to your device that you use and other outlets that you own i.e. computer, phone etc. Your Intuition connects to your Solar Plexus (gut) and other Chakras as the other outlets! You may not have known how to use your new phone at first, yet you took the time and patience to learn how it works. It is the same with your Intuition take the time and have patience and you will begin to notice the difference between your go forward signs and your warning signals and all the other information that it has to offer.

Intuition is a completely natural sense that we all have – so enjoy the benefits it has to offer as you trust and strengthen your connection to make better decisions, solve problems, achieve your goals faster and enjoy a happier more authentic successful balanced life.

5th Chakra Energy

It has been over 100 days since the UK went into lockdown due to Covid-19 and although some of the limiting rules are softening – it’s still not over yet!

It has been a very limiting and confusing time for many. With so many changes happening one after another it can be a challenge to keep up with it all with the News completely filled with Covid-19.

As well as being a Healer, I am also a Hypnotherapist and have noticed that there has been a lot of fear instilled into the people of every country as it lingers and the future is still uncertain as to how it will affect the world’s economies. Wearing my Hypnotherapist’s hat for the moment I have seen that the new ways of living and moving around have been going on for a long time. If someone wishes to create a NEW belief or way of life then it takes 21 days for the new neurological pathways to be created within the mind and a total of just 66 days for that belief to become hardwired and fixed in your psyche.

As we move forward it is important that you know whether you have become hardwired and conditioned to living in fear or whether you have been able to follow the guidelines to the best of your abilities and not soaked up the consistent saturation of fear!

If you move forward in constant fear then you will be continually stressed and may even start to suffer from anxiety attacks and depression, which could affect you for many years to come.

The universal sign of using the Traffic Light system has been in constant use from the government over the last few months and now it is even being incorporated into many other areas as well including the Track and Trace system and whether the trains and buses are full or not!

We are already well trained (hardwired) on following the Traffic Light system – automatically stopping at a red light and not crossing it even if you can see the traffic is clear from all directions. Have you ever sat waiting at a broken Traffic Light with the light on red and the queue has grown as far back as you can see in your rear view mirror? It takes either a brave person to venture forward knowing that they are breaking the law driving through the red light or somebody who has moved forward with anger and frustration. Some may even turn around and find a different route!

Here is a way that you can use the Traffic Light symbols in a positive way to help develop your intuition.

RED If something does not feel right then STOP and do not do it.

AMBER If something feels mostly good but you have a small nagging feeling something is off then PROCEED WITH CAUTION – you can put on the brakes or accelerate at any time from this position.

GREEN When it feels good then you can GO ahead feeling confident.

Trust in your intuition more than what your head tells you!! When you trust and follow through on your intuition you will find that over time you will become even more intuitive and be able to go with the flow of your life’s journey.

I would also recommend that you pay attention to your 5th Chakra which is connected to your personal truth and expression and situated in the base of the throat and expands through the top of the shoulders.

The whole world is in a situation at the moment where the 5th Chakra is highly activated and, symbolically, this is showing up in many different ways from wearing a mask so your mouth is covered to the passing of George Floyd with the knee to the neck. People are waking up and want the truth, people are realising that not all that they are being told is true!

When the energy flow is out of balance within the throat chakra it can lead to physical symptoms which can affect your head, throat, neck and mouth. This often causes neck pain which can travel into the shoulders, headaches, earaches and a sore throat. Other symptoms can include colds, dental issues, mouth ulcers and even thyroid problems. As well as affecting you physically it can impact you in other areas of your life – a person may not be able to express their personal thoughts and views clearly, have social anxiety and the fear of speaking in groups or public speaking. It may also show as becoming quiet and shy when this was not a problem in the past and begin to affect your personal and professional life, even causing you not to trust your inner voice!

Have you ever sat with somebody who is constantly gossiping, being overly critical, rude and has the inability to listen? This is a sign that they have an overactive throat chakra.

Your throat chakra is motivated by expression and truth, allowing you to see beyond the limitations of social conditioning. It is responsible for communicating effectively and with conviction. When your fifth chakras energy is in balance and harmony, you will be able to stand up confident, unafraid and assertively for what you honestly believe in and speak your truth.

With so much going on the world today it is important to find your authentic voice and discover the power of your 5th Chakra so you can be inspired to align with your own vision and how you would like to move forward into the future with integrity, creating a reality that empowers you and allows your creativity to flow and then be able to share it with others around you and the world.

It is also important to remember that all the chakras within your body and subtle bodies are interconnected and when one chakra is experiencing a blockage or is not in balance this affects the other chakras and the life force (prana) becomes disrupted and the flow becomes out of balance.

Most of us have energetic blockages and imbalances throughout our chakra system that vary at different times within our lives and outside circumstances which can, when left unattended, prevent us from accessing our full vitality, often leaving us feeling exhausted, scattered and vulnerable to various illnesses.

To help your throat chakra keep in balance and full of vitality you need to learn to work through and let go of negative emotions, including guilt, hurt and resentment. Not to swallow your words and speak your truth clearly with confidence, trusting your inner voice.

Other practices that can help are doing a mindful mediation incorporating the throat chakra colour turquoise/blue; you can also bring blue flowers into your home, decorate with turquoise/blue furnishings like lamp shades, cushions and wear turquoise/blue clothes. Singing can also help and allowing your-self to have a good cry will also help to relieve blockages in the 5th Chakra.

Energy healing is a great way for you to be able to relax and let go of your built up emotions and clear any negative blockages within your chakra and aura system, helping you to feel much lighter and brighter within yourself to be able to move forward in your life with more clarity and confidence.

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time – we all love a good story with a happy ending!

You are an infinite Spiritual being having a temporary human experience – not a human being having a Spiritual experience.

Your soul has incarnated here on earth to have experiences. We have those experiences through our own personal stories, which are filled with many different types of mental and emotional feelings. You will have sat down many times with a friend sharing your happy times, and also the sad times, sharing experiences, laughing together about the good and offering and receiving guidance and support in difficult times.

Our lives are made up of individual stories and the soul is interested in them all; the good, the bad and the in-between and is learning from each one of them. We are created with a physical body, a mind to help make decisions and have the opportunity to feel emotions making life a really full-on experience!

All of these can be broken down to pure energy – and your energy resonates on vibrations. When you are feeling happy and content the energy is clearer and holds a stronger vitality. When you are sad or unhappy this vibration drops, slows down and can cause blockages within your energy field.

Your energy field is known as your aura and within your aura you have energy centres known as chakras. Your body is the vehicle for your energy field which resides throughout and around your body. An average healthy aura needs to be at least 3ft all around you. Imagine for the moment you are standing inside an oval shaped container and you can stretch your arms out either side without touching the sides, and you have the same amount of space above your head and below your feet, this is at least how large your aura needs to be!

Your thoughts and emotions manifest through your body which is your vehicle for experiencing life.

When you hold onto negative thoughts and beliefs, ignore and hold onto feelings like anger, anxiety or grief then your body stores these within your mind, cells, muscles and organs etc. Your energy becomes weak and your chakras are not able to flow vibrantly and blockages occur, which, in turn, can lead to depression, continued stress and illnesses.

Your body becomes overloaded with your negative stories that you have held onto and have nowhere to go and the only way it can communicate to you is by how you are feeling – maybe you have digestive problems, frequently getting a sore throat, always tired,  continuously getting headaches or have a more serious problem or chronic illness?

This is the story your body is telling you, it is letting you know where you have suppressed mental and emotional negative energy and how and where it is impacting you.

When you clear any blocked emotional and mental energy and you look after your physical body with good nutrition – your body will heal and thrive!

Give yourself the gift of healing and allow me to help you evolve beyond your limited patterns and behaviour, helping to clear those negative stuck emotions that hold you back, learn and understand how your body’s energy field works helping you create a more fulfilling, happier and healthier life!

When you choose to acknowledge that you are not the hurt and suffering that your stories tell, that those stories limit you and hold you back, that it was an experience that happened yet is not who you are. Then it makes moving forward easier without limitations, issues, attachments and unwanted stories!

You are not your story. You are not your thoughts or emotions. You are not your past.

You can make the decision to be the change you wish to see in your life.

Life is filled with modern story tellers including movie producers, artists, parents and teachers. As a society, we respect and admire great story tellers. It’s the reason films and television shows have become so immensely popular with the stories they tell from learning about our history, nature programmes, showing us other parts of the world, fictional sci-fi and, of course, a good romcom. It is from stories that we have the opportunity to learn and discover.

I like this little story below that helps a child understand the meaning of passing over in a simple way.

Once upon a time, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads, there lived a little water beetle in a community of water beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond with few disturbances and interruptions.

Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their friend was dead, gone forever.

Then, one day, the little water beetle felt an irresistible urge to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what he had found at the top.

When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying.

So, fly he did! As he soared exploring and seeing the beauty of a whole new world which was a far more beautiful and superior way of life to what he had ever known existed.

He remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before.

His life had been fulfilled rather than ended. But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he understood that their time would come, when they, too, would know what he now knew.

So, he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life!

Are you comfortable in your Skin?

As an Intuitive Holistic Healer, I find it interesting that many of my existing and new clients will come to me with similar ailments at the around same time. These clients do not know each other yet they will be displaying similar symptoms within the physical, mental and emotional being.

I have had over the last weeks a “rash” of complaints from people suffering with unexpected breakouts of acne, rosacea, shingles and strange unexplained rashes. These are often in the same places on the body, so I thought I would share with you more about the skin and how it communicates with you.

As yet, science is still unable to re-create anything that is close to your real skin and how it performs to protect you at all times. It can be scraped and grazed and grow back within days, a cut will heal often within a week, you can puncture it with a needle and it will fill back in stopping the bleeding within seconds/minutes. It is always removing old cells and creating new ones, self-repairing structural damage and constantly re-establishing blood flow to cells within your skin.

Your skin is the only physical barrier between you and the world which allows you to survive intact with all of your other organs held neatly and in an organised order inside your body.

It covers your entire body, so, every thought you have and every word you say and the energy of an intention is felt/heard through your skin, it is also able to receive incoming information from others and the outside world at the same time. So next time you are having a moan about how your skin looks and feels – remember it hears and feels every word as it loyally continues to protect you!

Because the skin is able to heal quickly and replace old cells regularly it is good at showing you what is going on inside your body. For example if you are dehydrated your skin will become dry, when you are unhappy your skin will sag, when malnourished it will lose its healthy glow, you will blush when embarrassed and redden with anger. The skin is constantly reflecting our inner feelings; peeling or flaking of dead skin is an indication of letting go of old mental patterns. A rash or spots will appear when you are confronting the world or somebody or something is getting under your skin causing you frustration and anger.

The skin not only is a barrier, it is a protection to your inner states of being, it is your identity and it is your physical boundary.

The skin offers exit points, helping the lungs, the colon, the kidney and livers when they can’t cope with the heavy amount of toxins that get put into your body. Yet, at the same time, it also absorbs what is put on it, so be careful of your skincare and bath products as it only takes 26 seconds for them to be absorbed into your bloodstream!

I recommend that you use freshly made, cruelty-free skincare to minimise the toxins you take into your body.

Throughout the world many people are becoming more aware of toxic products, toxic energy and toxic people around them and are releasing long held onto anger and resentment, letting go of what no longer serves them, disconnecting from negative people, changing not only their dietary needs,  but the environment around them and this may be one of the reasons that there are so many outbreaks of skin complaints lately as they prepare themselves to move forward and step towards new or long awaited goals.

Highly Sensitive People also recognise that unusual rashes, itchiness and prickly sensations which appear over the body are part of the ascension process. They understand that the body is preparing itself as part of the ascension process, that it is enhancing the body’s vibration to a higher level as past lives and this lives issues are being released.

As the body vibrates higher in frequency it can no longer tolerate the lower energy foods, especially processed, fast foods and gluten. So make a higher energy decision to re-evaluate what you decide to put into and on to your body – every part of your whole body will be very grateful!

As you listen to your body and start to understand what it is trying to say to you then you can begin to clear and let go of situations and experiences from the past that are still blocking your system.

Anger for example manifests as high blood pressure – which affects the skin, causing pain, a rash or an infection. Before becoming angry there is a feeling of frustration, which gets stored in the liver – and that frustration turns to resentment and is held in the spleen. Maybe even before the frustration something was going on around you that may have been hard for you to digest, causing stomach problems or even creating ulcers!

As your organs become over worked or filled with negative energy it becomes difficult for them to carry out their job of eliminating it all properly – which means it has to call on the skin for help to filter it out through the many different types of rashes that appear on your body. Just as well the skin is willing to help as otherwise you could be poisoned from within.

Remember, physical symptoms are the body’s language and once you begin to understand your own body’s language you are now in a good position to begin healing yourself. It’s not that the rash/illness is unreal; it means that now, you can treat it differently by finding the cause and not just treat the symptoms!

Anger comes in different forms including impatience, resentment, hate, jealously and intolerance to name but a few.

Let me ask you – How do you supress your anger?

Do you swallow it down? Sit on it? Continuously think about it? Become distant from people? Hold on to it? Become thick skinned? Push it to the back of you? Carry it around with you? Etc.

Be honest with yourself and you will discover why certain areas of your body hurt more than others. If you push it to the back of you then you will end up with a bad back. If you are still carrying it around, check your shoulder pains and your arms! Sitting on it – well I will leave that to your imagination! When the body can contain it no more it exits the skin via a rash!

So check where your rash is and allow your body to help you understand what it is about.

If it is behind your ear then it could be that you don’t like listening to what is being said around you, it’s getting under your skin and you are unable to express your true opinion. A breakout on your face may mean that you are holding anger in as you are not able to face up to what is happening or being said around you.

Ask yourself who or what is rubbing you raw, getting under your skin, perhaps it is time to shed a layer of yourself? Is it time to stop absorbing criticism and assert yourself? When you have an itch, stop and take the time to ask yourself – what is going on below the surface? Are you keeping any toxic feelings inside of yourself? If the answer is yes then find a safe way to release them.

As you accept that your body is your friend and not your enemy, remember, this is the vehicle that you choose to have an earthly experience in.

It is important for your spiritual growth that you listen and learn what your body is trying to tell you. Every ache, pain and symptom is the body delivering a message of importance to you in its own unique language. Healing becomes easier as you recognise that stress is a reminder from the soul that something needs to change in your life!

Start to see your body as your soulmate; it is the only one you have got. Love yourself inside and out. Take the time to listen to your body, become aware of its language. The more severe the problem the louder your body will speak and give it the help it needs to heal on all levels physically, mentally, emotionally and on a soul level.

Be mindful of the language you use as your body hears it all. The health of your body, mind and soul are all connected. You may try to bury your stress, hide your tensions, grief, anger, fears and losses. Trap your anger within your organs and you may have thought that you are succeeding, yet your body always remembers everything and will remind you through the only language it knows how!

I am here to help you learn and understand what your body is trying to tell you, to help you let go of blockages that are no longer serving you for your highest good and help you move forward in a positive and loving way.

Healing Properties of Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is one of the most loved and well known crystals. It is often one of the first stones that someone will buy for themselves. They fill the room with a soft pink hue that asks to be embraced, wrapping their loving energies around you, creating a vortex of deep penetrating heart healing.

Just being in the room with a Rose Quartz crystal will help to release any sadness that has followed you through all time. It cleanses away the debris of the past, lifting you to a safe place within yourself where you can dry the past tears of your soul. It is a very gentle yet very powerful stone. It helps instil calmness and promotes self-love, self-esteem, love of others, compassion and is wonderful at restoring the mind and emotions to a state of calm and clarity after a crisis. It can help bring peace and calmness to relationships. It provides us with emotional support when we most need it and is a comforting crystal that helps reduce the fears that accompany pain and injury.

It is a powerful Seeker crystal.  It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace.

Known as a romance stone, Rose Quartz can be a good facilitator for attracting love.  Put a Rose Quartz Flame on your bedside table, to attract new love or to add trust and re-commitment to an existing relationship.

Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It is one of the most important stones for working with the Heart Chakra, opening the heart to compassion for self and for others. Rose Quartz eases guilt and balances emotions, lowering stress levels and bringing about peace.

The comforting and soothing energy of Rose Quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation, and forgiveness of others and even of the self. Lowering stress and tension in the heart, Rose Quartz clears out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others, allowing healing of heart issues and dis-ease associated with holding on to negative emotions. Rose Quartz can also help heal a broken heart, allowing the release of pent-up emotions and grief.

Rose Quartz allows the user to expand the Heart Chakra and be able to accept love from others, and to recognize and connect with the unconditional love of the Universe.  Rose Quartz may also be used to balance all of the chakras and remove negative energy, replacing it with a loving energy.

However, for all its calming and soothing properties, please be aware that Rose Quartz can also be a powerful releaser of unexpressed emotions.

ROSE QUARTZ ENERGISED WATER

The water you drink and use comes to you through an involved process, such as pressurization, filtering and sedentary storage. These processes have an effect on the quality of water as it comes out of the tap or bottle. The journey through the pipes, filters and tanks we use to ensure the essential safety of the water supply also takes out the natural vitality of the water as it is found in nature. Even the best spring water loses vitality and energy when it is moved through pipes and other forms of water processing.

Every cell in our body has an electrical potential and water constantly flowing through it. Blood plasma is over 90% water and in it is everything we need to live. Our body needs good energetic water to help prevent the body from getting sick, yet it also needs good energetic water to support the healing process when we are unwell.

I often recommend to my clients in a healing session to drink plenty of water. During a healing session, blockages are shifted, including physical toxicity, attachments to others, trauma and imprints removed from past lives etc.

When we are dehydrated, other people’s toxic emotions and electromagnetic pollution can stick to us causing fear to stagnate in the kidneys and liver, affecting our digestion, causing cells to suffer and our minds to become foggy. As soon as the body loses a small fraction of weight in water, it demands more by getting thirsty.

Since ancient times, Rose Quartz has been revered as one of the most powerful, healing gemstones. It has been used for hundreds of years to energise and restore water.

Drinking Rose Quartz energised water can help encourage feelings of self-worth, love and confidence. Its healing properties also include: dispersing negativity and toxins, healing the heart, balancing your emotions, treating headaches and migraines, enhancing the immune system, vitalizing your Prana (life force), relieving stress and bringing a sense of inner peace.

Enjoy and experience drinking water in a totally new way.

Today I am delighted to introduce the bewater Harmony Drinking Bottle to you.

Simply fill your bottle with your regular drinking water and wait 10 minutes.  The vibrant energy of this crystal is then transferred into the water, heightening its vibration, so it becomes full of energy and vitality again, just like natural mountain spring water – stimulating for body, mind, and soul. Making it a must have for any household or to use in your therapy room.

To re-energise your Harmony bewater bottle place it outside once a month. Somewhere safe, preferably on the ground itself, and in the shade where it can soak up the natural earth elements (sunlight will fade the beautiful rose pink colour) and leave it for 12 hours.

Rose Quartz is a water element and re-energises best by moonlight, so a full moon is an excellent time to recharge it.

I simply LOVE these gemstone bottles.

The high quality gemstones are completely sealed within the “pod” and are immersed safely within the bottle of water infusing the water with their metaphysical properties.

For those of you who already prepare and enjoy using gemstone elixirs you will love and appreciate that you can now have your gem-water on the go and be able to refill the bottle at any time.

The bewater Harmony Bottle is a blend of Rose Quartz and Clear Quartz gemstones, and you will find this harmonic blend to taste smooth and mild.

Clear Quartz distributes energy, alleviates pain, lowers high temperature and harmonises the nerves, glands & hormones. Overall the bewater Harmony Gemstone combination of rose quartz and clear quartz has a stimulating, yet soothing effect bringing you calm and tranquillity.

Based on the research of Dr. Masaru Emoto a number of studies have been made proving the benefits of drinking water infused with gemstone properties.

Here are the results of a biological appraisal:

  • Distinct improvement of tap water quality
  • Improvement of the pH value and oxygen content
  • Quality level otherwise only known in natural spring water
  • Raise energy balance

These gemstone water bottles also make amazing gifts to introduce your family and friends to the concept of crystal energy as there is no time consuming cleansing of the crystals needed and they are hygienic, convenient and beautiful to look at.

This is a unique and exclusive gift for every occasion.

Why Is Chakra Clearing Important?

We all know that the world we live in now is a totally different world than that of our ancestors.

They never had the opportunity to spend hours at a computer exploring the internet, the luxury of driving a car or being able to text a friend on a mobile phone. They also did not have to face the destruction of their environment that comes with the assault of modern technology and pollution.

So it is no surprise that as we have evolved that our bodies, minds and energy field (known as your aura), have struggled to keep up with all the changes that are needed to keep life in balance with this quick paced and often stressful lifestyle that somehow for many seems to have become normal.

Our bodies are designed for flight or fight when coming across a dangerous situation and in this modern day and age we no longer come across the mountain lion that wants to eat us – whereas in the past we would have either run away or stayed and fought for our lives.

Most people are aware of flight or fight energy, yet what seems to be forgotten is that we also have the choice to Freeze by standing absolutely still and possibly even holding our breath with the hope that we would go unnoticed as the predator passed by.

When a deer is chased by a lion and escapes – its whole body will shake as it releases the rush of adrenalin and fear of the event, bringing the deer’s energy back into a normal state of being.  The lion too will shake its body to release the energy and disappointment of not having lunch that day, once again bringing its body into a neutral state of being.

For many of you it seems that you no longer remember to shake things off and move forward with ease when you leave a stressful situation behind – maybe this is because you are still using the adrenalin that was designed for life or death situations. In a world that is not as life threatening as it was not letting go of the adrenalin means that it becomes stuck in your energy field, blocking your Chakras, and will eventually settle in different parts of the body,

As your energy field becomes more clogged you try to eliminate the stress that is around you, try to get more sleep and even focus on your nutrition – you still remain exhausted and feel lethargic, it becomes difficult to stay motivated and you start to lose interest in doing things that you once loved.

Your energy field is your source of life and vitality and when you experience an emotional trauma then the negative energy from that event can get stuck in your energy field and body for many years – as I am able to see your auric field then I can easily see where it has become stuck.

One way to tell if you have energy that you are still holding onto is to think about a negative event that you have had and if it still brings up emotions like, grief, anger, sadness and feeling overwhelmed or you have a physical sensation like anxiety or feel sick in your stomach or get pressure in your head, chest or throat then these are signs that the traumatic energy still resides there and is still affecting you today.

When the energy is not released, over time it begins to block your chakras and affect your physical well-being causing fatigue amongst many other symptoms.

Doctors are unable to view your auric field and, therefore, are often not able to answer your questions about why you are feeling so tired. Although most doctors are in agreement that stress is behind the cause of over 70% of illnesses.

When a person’s energy levels are low, it is the first sign that the energy field/your aura has been disrupted and this can be the beginning of many other things that can go wrong in the body as the auric field is not able to direct the body’s chemistry the way it is meant to and the body slowly starts to break down affecting the autoimmune system.

There are seven major chakras that are located at various points within the spine with the first one starting at the base, in the coccyx, and the seventh one being on the top of your head.

The chakras are spinning vortices that, when balanced, preserve good health throughout the body. For simplicity you can liken them to an electric fan with 3 speed settings – slow, medium and fast. The medium setting being the perfect flow and when set to slow or fast they don’t work as efficiently.

The chakras themselves are not physical and you would not be able to see them on an X-ray.

They are aspects of consciousness, also known as the life force or chi energy, and they interact with the physical and energetic body through the endocrine and nervous systems.

Each chakra’s connection to a key endocrine gland and nervous system in your body means that an energy deficiency could lead to serious physical consequences if you ignore it for too long.

Your consciousness is how you perceive your reality and represents everything that is possible for you to experience. All of your senses, perceptions, and different states of awareness can be divided into seven groups, and then each of these groups can be associated with a particular chakra.

So, when you feel tension or stress in your consciousness, you will also feel it in the chakra that it is associated with and also in the parts of the physical body that the chakra is associated with.

No one chakra is better or more important than the others, so you would not want to have extra heart chakra energy and less throat chakra energy. This would not be balanced and then it would be possible that the other chakras would also become out of balance as they become over or under active to make up the difference.

Here are some symptoms that you may feel when your chakras are over or underactive.

Root Chakra:

When overactive you may feel ungrounded, resistant to change, fearful, nervous and insecure and attached to materialistic items.

When underactive you may feel that you do not belong to anywhere or anyone, become co-dependant and have a fear of abandonment.

Physical Symptoms of your chakra being out of balance include the inability to sit still, restlessness, unhealthy weight (either obesity or eating disorder), constipation, cramps, fatigue or sluggishness.

Sacral Chakra:

When overactive you are quick to attach and invest in others, attracted to drama, feel moody and lack personal boundaries.

When underactive you may feel closed off from others, lack confidence, self-esteem or self-worth and put up with being in an abusive relationship.

Physical Symptoms of your chakra being out of balance include lower-back pain or stiffness, urinary issues, kidney pain or infection, infertility and impotence.

Solar Plexus Chakra:

Symptoms of this chakra being overactive are being domineering, aggressive, angry, a perfectionist or overly critical of oneself or others.

When underactive you become passive, indecisive, and timid and lack self-control.

Physical Symptoms of your chakra being out of balance can be ulcers, gas, nausea or other digestive problems, eating disorders, asthma or other respiratory ailments, nerve pain or fibromyalgia, infection in the liver or kidneys and other organ problems.

Heart Chakra:

When overactive you can become clingy and suffocating in the way you are expressing your love to others, lack a sense of self in any relationship and be willing to say yes to everything. You begin to lose your boundaries, letting everyone in without concerns of future outcomes.

When underactive you may feel cold, distant and lonely, often feeling resentful towards others and unable or unwilling to open up to others.

Physical Symptoms of your chakra being out of balance can be heart and circulatory problems (high blood pressure, heart palpitations, and heart attack), poor circulation or numbness, asthma or other respiratory ailments, breast cancer, stiff joints or joint problems in the hands.

Throat Chakra:

An overactive throat chakra leads to being over talkative and not knowing when to stop, you find yourself unable to listen to others, often becoming highly critical, verbally abusive or condescending.

When this chakra is underactive you can feel Introverted, shy, not be able to express your needs or have difficulty speaking your personal truth.

Physical Symptoms of your chakra being out of balance can be stiffness or soreness in the neck or shoulders, sore throat, hoarseness or laryngitis, earaches or infection, dental issues or thyroid issues.

Third Eye Chakra:

When overactive you can become out of touch with reality, find it hard to focus as your thoughts are all over the place and you no longer seem to have good judgement.

When underactive you can become very rigid in your thinking, be closed off to new ideas, cling to the past and be fearful of the future. Often, becoming disconnected to your own intuition and unable to trust your own thoughts

Physical Symptoms of your chakra being out of balance could be vision problems, headaches or migraines, insomnia or sleep disorders including nightmares, and even seizures.

Crown Chakra:

When overactive you can become addicted to spirituality, completely ignoring your bodily needs and have difficulty controlling your emotions.

With an underactive Crown Chakra you will not be very open to spirituality, and find it difficult to set or maintain goals as you will be lacking in a sense of direction in your life.

Physical Symptoms of your chakra being out of balance are dizziness, confusion, mental fog, neurological disorders, nerve pain, schizophrenia or other mental disorders.

Quite a list!

It is important to remember that your physical body and your energy field/aura in which your chakras reside are going to keep sending you messages through your body, thoughts and emotions until you pay attention.

Pause for a moment… ask yourself: are your chakras feeling balanced, or are there areas where you feel out of sorts?

Do you feel vibrant, healthy and full of energy or is your life force energy low, making you feel tired or lethargic?

Any time is a good time to have your chakras cleared and balanced, if you are already feeling good you will feel even better and if you are feeling stressed, anxious or physically drained then an intuitive holistic healing session including clearing and balancing your chakras can help you relax and release any blocked or negative emotions that you may be holding onto, leaving your whole being feeling more energised, lighter, healthier and happier within yourself.
