You May Have Too Much Stress in Your Life

Stress is very much taken for granted these days as part of life; it seems that many people accept it as part of this so called “modern living”.

And, while there is such a thing as “healthy” stress when it provides you with motivation that helps you stretch and grow, to take on new challenges or overcome difficulties – the majority of stress in today’s world is chronic, damaging and unhealthy.

Stress is a word that is recognised by all, everybody experiences different levels of stress throughout their life whether it is during exam time, festive seasons, moving home, when a partner or family member is ill and during a crisis or emergency etc.

There are those who have above normal stress within their jobs i.e. pilots, fire fighters, police, ambulance drivers, emergency healthcare professionals etc.

Stress can become a way of being. It can become habitual without a person actually realising it at the time. Not only does it affect the physical body creating tension throughout – muscles becoming tighter, joints stiffer, heart beating faster etc. which prevents you from working and relaxing efficiently, it saps the joy of life from you.

One of the symptoms of stress is that your job is terribly important and it comes before anything or anybody else. Even if you are not in a paid job this could be that you are so busy doing things, rushing around, always on a mission. This type of lifestyle can eventually lead to a nervous breakdown.

Stress affects us all differently, yet what we all have in common is that it affects us emotionally, mentally, physically and also our energy field (which is your aura and chakras) causing blockages, and stagnation within your energy field. Your energetic colours become dull and grey and murky colours appear throughout it showing exactly where the blockages are.

Signs of Stress show up in different ways – here are a few symptoms that you may recognise:

Aches and pains, headaches, fatigue/lethargy, stomach upsets, loss of sexual drive, anxiousness/worry, tense, irritable, depressed, forgetful, poor concentration, mental blocks, sleep problems, difficulty in making decisions, crying, always getting a cold, run down, withdrawing from friends and family, negative outlook on life, anxious or racing thoughts, constant worrying, the inability to relax, feeling angry, lonely, eating too much or not enough, bowel problems, procrastinating or neglecting life’s responsibilities, using alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs to relax – did I say a few different ways the list goes on…..

It would be great if you never had to get stressed out again – yet that isn’t reality, as it can appear in varying degrees of intensity and for different lengths of time depending on what is happening in your life, so I would like to share a few tips on how to manage stress and live a less stressful life.

Develop and nurture self-awareness.

As you begin to know yourself better it will be easier to recognise when you are becoming stressed and what is causing it, so you will be able to take positive action in what you do and in how you think, so that you can more easily stay focused on being productive rather than self-destructive, thus, creating a balanced lifestyle that is right for you.


Do one job at a time, both in your work and your private life.

This will make it easier for you focus and do the job properly with a higher standard and on completion you will have peace of mind, knowing that you will not have to go back and make any alterations as you already have the result you wanted.


Keep your daily to-do list as short as possible.

Put three important things to do at the top, followed by some less urgent things that need doing and write everything else down on a separate piece of paper. When you write it down you ground your thoughts. Keep it handy so as you think of something else you can just jot it down, this takes away the stress and panic that you may forget and frees up your mind for staying focused on more important things.

As you complete your daily list you can then choose which you would like to do next off the other list or if your list is not completed for the day, don’t overthink or create a problem for yourself – just add it to the list for tomorrows daily list. Keep this a simple procedure, as spending time beating yourself up that you didn’t get the whole list done will only cause you unnecessary stress and drain your energy and affect your motivation and self-confidence.


Just breathe.

The moment you notice that you have any kind of tension within your body, don’t wait, take a deep breath and hold it for four seconds then slowly release it for eight seconds or more. Your body will naturally relax, it understands that the long out breath is permission to relax, that it is okay to relax – you may liken this to the moment when after a full on day you flop onto the sofa and let a long sigh, and your body and mind begin to unwind and relax. So, don’t wait, know it is okay to be relaxed any time of the day, this will help you stay in the present moment and stop your mind wandering off into the past or future, helping you remain calm and focused in a relaxed way. Create a new belief that it is always okay to be relaxed and present in the moment at any time.


Take the time to eliminate what is not working for you.

Re-evaluate what is important for you to feel happy in your life, this may mean that you let go of some activities i.e. maybe you force yourself to go to the gym even when it is an effort, swap it for another activity that you enjoy more, maybe a walk, swim or playing with your children – your body knows what you like and dislike and will respond accordingly – when you clap your hands when you are happy it is easy to do, when you do it as an exercise your arms start aching and the clapping makes your hands sore! Choose the people that you like to be around most, those who enjoy life and have a positive attitude and let go of those who it is tiring to be around and drain your energy.


Say “no” more often.

This will free up time for you and save your energy so you can do the things that you like in both your personal and business life.


Slow down.

When you find yourself rushing around, deliberately slow down, as you slow your body down then your thoughts will become clearer. Make sure you take the time to eat slowly as this will help your digestive system. Allow yourself to enjoy the taste, smells and textures of your food, your body will appreciate it – helping you to regulate your energy better throughout the day.


Ensure you get enough sleep.

Sleep allows you to heal and recover from the day’s activities and allows your mind to sort through the day’s event storing the memories in the correct place within your brain and bring you an inner calmness to start the next day. You will be pleasantly surprised at the difference a good night’s sleep will bring you – making a huge difference in your moods, how you look at life and help you handle stress easier.


Get up 15 minutes earlier than usual.

You can use this time to stretch your body, breathe deeply and to enjoy your breakfast in a relaxed way. When you start your day in a relaxed way this will continue throughout the day. Whereas, if you are rushed and stressed in the beginning this energy will follow you throughout the day.


De-clutter your home and work space.

If this seems overwhelming to you to do on your own or you have trouble staying focused, then ask a friend to help. This will help you get it done more easily and you could return the kindness and favour to them in the future. Start with one room at a time and when you have finished, do the next. This will reduce your stress as you will be able to find things easier, take less cleaning etc. freeing up your time giving you more precious moments.


Share how you are feeling with somebody.

Verbalising and expressing how you are feeling helps you to let go of the emotion that you are holding onto within your body and mind. Also, by sharing with the other person, they may be able to help you see things more clearly or help you figure out what is the best solution for you.


Stress is not completely avoidable, yet, you can minimise the amount of times you are affected by it each day, month and year by setting new boundaries in your life and changing how you react to it.

When you continue to live your life in a continuous state of stress it can lead to anxiety and depression and also be the underlying cause of many illnesses.

Start by making a decision that you no longer allow stress to rule your life and chose some of the ideas above as a starting point. Stay focused and as you create new habits in your life one step at a time, in six months’ time you can look back and see what a huge difference it has made in your life.

The Future of Healing Hands

A couple of weeks ago I read an interesting article which shared information about how Robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) could affect the future of mankind and although, in reality, at this moment nobody really knows in full how individuals could be affected it opened up my mind to thinking about how the possibilities could be very positive and helpful, yet at the same time also have a very negative effect for a lot of people.

Some Billionaire Companies are investing a lot of time and money into developing more efficient Robots and AI. What we do know is that at some time in the future they will be a large part of our lives – it is like the Science Fiction films we watch coming true into our reality.

So, for the moment, let’s imagine what the future may hold for lots of people throughout the world. Maybe, within the next 10 years or so, society as we know it will be changed dramatically as AI and the Robots could take away more than 50% of human jobs. This could even include many hands-on jobs including some of the skilled labours like building a house, putting in electrical wiring and plumbing. Can you imagine what it would be like to go into your favourite restaurant for a romantic dinner and find out that the food has been prepared, cooked and then served by a Robot? It might be the perfect recipe and have the exact measurements of ingredients in it – but have no feeling of love or soul!

As more AI was introduced into the world more people would find themselves with no work and, therefore, would have to go on some sort of universal income supplied by the government. This may be good for some people who are already trapped in a low paying job that they do not like, as it would cover their basic needs but their income would obviously be limited by the amount that the government decided was enough for that person’s needs!

Yet, what about those who were already in a higher paying profession and would no longer be able to spend on holidays, education, organic food and extra healthcare etc.?

I wonder how it would affect the people who actually loved their jobs – with it being a part of their main purpose in life.

When you meet a person for the first time, nearly always, they will share with you what they do for a living as this is a huge part of their life and who they have become through the work that they do. For many it will be that if their job was taken away it would also remove their main purpose in life!

For some, this may be good news as they can take the time to look for a deeper and more meaningful life purpose. Yet, there could be more people who would become lost within themselves, feel hurt, rejected and become numb to life!

Is this really a good thing or is it what the larger companies really want to achieve from the human life population?

You maybe be wondering why as an INTUITIVE HOLISTIC HEALER I am choosing to lightly touch on upon the subject of Robots and AI and I do realise that it could be open to much discussion and debate being a huge subject on its own and one that could cause many different opinions.

Yet, as a healer, and maybe as you are reading this you too are a Healer or perhaps a Counsellor, a Life Coach or similar then you will already understand that as we move forward into the future that there will be a high demand for your services.

AI and Robots are not spiritual; they do not have emotions, compassion and love and no matter how intelligent they get – they will never have a soul.

As we move forward into the future, all Spiritual Healers, Life Coaches, Counsellors and Mentors will be in even higher demand and chances are that there won’t be enough Healers to meet that demand.

This means that any field of work that requires emotional or spiritual mastery will be irreplaceable and I would like to encourage you to start getting ready now for the future as it takes practice and plenty of experiences to become a skilled Healer.

Start to take action now and find yourself work that has emotion, passion, love and gives you a deep sense of purpose, whether it is being an artist, a musician or in the spiritual arts – it is important for you to find something that AI and Robots will not be able to do!

 Put your heart and soul into your chosen skill and the personal growth that you will achieve over the next few years will reap rewards beyond your imagination.

Be ahead of the masses and don’t wait until AI and Robots have taken over your existing job. When this happens millions of people will be looking for healing and spiritual guidance and perhaps thousands will also be looking to become Healers, Counsellors etc.

 Yet – if they leave it too late – they will have had only a limited amount of experience in their chosen field.

 Here a few signs that you could be a natural healer

  • You genuinely enjoy being of service to other people. You may already be in a role of helping others as a practitioner, such as a nurse, chiropractor, counsellor or massage therapist.
  • You can be sensitive and experience heightened awareness in public places and can tell if there has been a fight or argument when you walk into a room.
  • Being in large crowds is draining and overwhelming and it’s a relief to get home so you can recharge your batteries and regain your energy.
  • You are intuitive and people often turn to you when they have a problem that needs solving.
  • The palms of your hands often tend to feel like they are buzzing, vibrating, or pulsating.
  • Animals and small children are comfortable around you even when they are mostly shy around others.
  • Strangers tend to share their life stories with you.
  • It brings you happiness, joy and deep meaning when you help others.
  • You can easily feel other people’s pain.
  • People often feel better or comforted in your presence, and feel safe when sharing their life secrets with you.
  • The word “healing” excites you and you have a knowing within that you are a healer just waiting to emerge.

You may be planning to change your future and start a new career which involves energy healing or maybe you are already a coach, counsellor or complementary therapist who sees immense value in adding energy healing to the services you offer, helping your clients to be able to create massive breakthroughs within their lives.

Maybe, you have an interest in energy healing, and the mind body spiritual connection for yourself then this Intuitive Holistic Healing course not only teaches you the principles of healing, it will also be a support for you on your own healing journey.

As you become committed to your own healing and growth, then you will definitely be in the best energetic space to act as a guiding light to help your friends, family and others on a professional level.

The Intuitive Holistic Healing course will give you the opportunity to become a Certified Practitioner in the exciting field of Energy Healing.

Intuitive Holistic Healing’s 4 day intense training course will give you the skills and techniques to help you to heal yourself and others.

The next course starts on Sunday 12th November and then continues on 19th 26th November and 3rd December 2017.

If you have a strong caring nature it’s almost certain you have the ability to become a healer.

Positive Thinking

Your first thoughts in the morning can really make a difference to how the rest of your day will be.

As soon as you wake in the morning the most ancient parts of your brain start to direct you towards specific outcomes to bring you pleasure, comfort and security.

Have you noticed that animals slowly stretch and yawn upon waking? The stretching eliminates any physical tension within their body and the yawning helps their brain become totally focused and alert.

So, before getting out of bed each morning take an extra few moments to stretch, yawn and bring your mind into focus before starting your daily routines.

As you bring your awareness to how you are feeling when you wake, begin to take a mental and physical inventory of your body: do you feel calm or anxious? Still tired or refreshed?  Then begin to direct your awareness to more pleasurable sensations i.e.  How your body feels nice and warm and how relaxed your muscles are, how appreciative you are for your comfortable bed and the sounds of birds singing outside etc.

 When you do this the pleasure and joy that you feel within your body stimulates the motivation centres in your brain, making you ready to take action for the day. The next step is to visualise what you would like to accomplish throughout the day and imagine yourself completing them effortlessly and easily overcoming any obstacles that may arise. By doing this your brain becomes more adept at turning your intentions into reality.

When you give yourself this extra time before getting out of bed in the morning, you will give yourself the opportunity to become fully aware of your body and your mental state, helping your brain to function better throughout the rest of the day and be able to accomplish more of your goals in a less stressed way.

Don’t Jump Out of Bed – take it slow, set your alarm clock 10 minutes earlier and be mindful of getting ready for the day. Enjoy your breakfast rather than gulping it down – not only will your body appreciate it, but your mind will stimulate and generate a greater self-love and compassion for yourself and you will build a greater emotional resilience that will carry forward into every part of your day and life.

As you go through your day you may sometimes find it challenging to remain positive in your thinking and this can be upsetting.

I would like to share with you why this happens so that you can begin to have an awareness of what is happening and that it is not really your fault. This will then enable you to begin noticing and start practising changing your thought patterns more easily.

Your brain is made up of two halves and within the whole of your brain, located toward the back, is a small area that has been there for millions of years – this is known as the ancient brain or reptilian brain.

Your right hand side frontal lobe/cortex is there to protect you from harm. In the past it was very valuable in protecting you from avoiding conflict from dinosaurs, tigers, snakes, floods, scorching heat, etc., and would have saved your life many times over; its role was/is to help you survive! It also needed to have a good memory to be able to continually recognise when danger was present.

The left hand side frontal lobe/cortex is where you feel safe, relaxed, happy and content. In the past our needs were a lot less and we were happy with a safe place to sleep and food in our belly.

Fast forward into the present century and we are no longer using our brains in the same way; we have evolved so much and have created many other marvellous ways to look after ourselves. We have become even more creative etc. yet, we still have that part in our brain that is ancient. Now it is the negative thinking that is created in the right hand side frontal lobe/cortex and the brain continues to innocently believe that it still doing a good job of protecting you.

The brain is naturally hard-wired to hold on to the negative experiences much longer than anything positive that has happened to us – as the negative is the way the brain protects you and this is why they are more easily encoded into your long term memory.

Positive thoughts and being happy often don’t leave a trace and can easily be forgotten and the reason is; that they are not a threat to your survival.

In this day and age it is the right hand side frontal lobe/cortex that constantly generates worries about things that could go wrong as you work towards achieving your goals – known as the “pessimist” side of the brain.

Simultaneously, your left hand side frontal lobe/cortex is constantly generating solutions to any imaginable problem. This is the “optimistic voice” that keeps you going!

So, now you understand a little more how about your brain works – you can take the pressure off yourself and start to retrain the negative thinking into a more constructive way of thinking.

When you catch yourself having negative thoughts – ask yourself if they have any true value for what is happening around you right now or whether they are just arising from habit. Let your brain know that although you are aware that is trying to be of service to you, this way of thinking is actually holding you back from surviving and thriving in your life.

Ask it to find a better way of protecting you and let it know that it is still needed and appreciated in a real life dangerous situation as that is what its true role is and then bring your awareness over to the left hand side of your brain and intentionally remember something good that has happened to you in the past. This will shift your energy making you feel much better within a few seconds.

When going about your chores for the day add in plenty of small rewards, make time for some quiet moments and breathe deeply, meditate and relax.

When a negative thought unnecessarily arises deliberately think of some positive thoughts which include being grateful and appreciative of your life. This way you are actually interrupting the negative thoughts bringing your being into a more content state.

Don’t chase happiness, instead do a variety of different activities that make you feel happy and remember to create goals that give you a reward on completing them, this way the brain will stay motivated and will release dopamine to help you achieve it as it will be anticipating the future pleasure to come.

Find ways that make your life simpler as nothing feeds a negative mind more than life’s complications and choose to stop being the victim of your negative thoughts by choosing to no longer believe in them. When you allow yourself to have self-defeating negative thoughts they can overtake your mind, then they will succeed in taking away your peace and joy, and lead to a lot of disappointment and even depression.

As your right hand side frontal lobe/cortex begins to calm down, it will feel safer and more secure with its new beliefs and new simpler surroundings and this in turn will alter your feelings bringing you lots of positive energy, helping you to be happier, feel more peaceful and content.

Strengthen the left hand side of your frontal lobe/cortex by having fun, social interactions and enjoying pleasurable activities with those you love and learn or teach a subject that fills you with passion and keep celebrating all of your accomplishments regularly as you continue your life’s journey.

A quick tip:

When you are feeling stressed and it is preventing you from doing and being your best – take a nap!

This may not sound like the best idea to you if you have a problem that needs to be solved. But, actually, it is one of the best options that you can do as when you are stressed your right hand side frontal lobe/cortex is working overtime and will assume you are in danger and this means that you are in “flight or fight” mode.

Your body becomes saturated with dopamine, cortisol and norepinephrine – all known stress hormones – which can have a number of different effects on your body including contracting and tightening your muscles, thickening and clotting your blood which if you took an external injury would help you survive the injury.

It also takes blood away from your immune and digestion systems and increases the brain function so you can focus intently on the threat, (this is why long term stress is one of the major contributors to illness) which as we discussed earlier is no longer to the extremes of our ancestors in the past when they were trying to escape a predatory animal or something as dangerous to survive.

Now it confuses a problem in the office or what to cook for dinner as life threatening!

What we need to be doing is strengthening the left hand side frontal lobe/cortex to solve the problem with creativity!

So, when you take a nap you become relaxed and even before you actually fall asleep, often the solution or a new idea/concept will arrive or the answer will be clear upon waking as the left hand side frontal lobe/cortex has been given the opportunity to be heard as the right hand side frontal lobe/cortex has been put to rest.

Always remember that the next time you’re faced with a problem that’s causing you stress, that it will be difficult to find the solution. If a nap is not an option for you then find another way to relax, take a breather and only come back to the problem when you feel calm!

Electrifying

Your auric field is an intelligent and amazing energy system that is able to protect you from outside influences and at the same time able to help you recognise and communicate with other energies that are around you.

Some highly sensitive people are able to see or feel their aura and this enables them to recognize their own energetic imbalances before they manifest physically as dis-ease.

It is great that science in now able to detect the aura which in known as our electro-magnetic field or bio-field and they are able to confirm through various studies that the energy within your aura plays an essential role in your health and how you feel both mentally and emotionally.

We now live in a world which has become really advanced in technology which in so many ways is wonderful, you can connect to your loved ones who live on the other side of the world, discover countries and learn new things without stepping outside of your front room. All this fantastic technology is made up of electricity – passing messages, images and sounds with lightning speed!

You also are made up of low level of electricity within your body and your auric field and are also able to receive and send messages/thoughts, images and sounds with lightning speed.

Your brain is a made up of electrical signals, processing and delivering millions of messages to your entire body every second.  At any given time, the human brain produces enough electrical current to power a 15 – 20 watt light bulb.

Each muscle contraction and movement you make, your nervous system, your perception of pain, your healing and regeneration, and brain activity to name a few are all electrically driven functions of the body.

Your heart being one of the main organs in your body is a muscle driven by low levels of electrical current and can be monitored and measured with an ECG machine and when the electrical signals become weak or inconsistent as people age, it is possible to stimulate the life-giving beat with small surges of electrical current from a device known as a pacemaker.

Your heart is a source of electro-magnetism that, even at a few meters away, is detectable by modern scientific instruments. I am sure there have been many times when you have sensed somebody come up to you from behind, you have not seen or heard them, yet felt them enter into your auric field or what you may call your space.

Each one of us is all genetically different, so it is with our electrical systems, each one of us has a specific electrical current (or fingerprint if you like) that defines our electrical structure.

There are billions of nerve impulses within the body and these are constantly creating the amazing and complex electro-magnetic field, which is known as your aura.

Have you had one of those days when you have touched something metal and got an electric shock as you release a build-up of static electricity that you have accumulated during the day?

You may have spent time with a particular person and come away feeling quite drained from being in their company. This is because that person has absorbed your energy or you may have spent time with a person who makes you feel more uplifted, energised and this is because they have charged your energy field.

You may get a good or bad vibe about someone that you have just recently met, yet many of you will ignore this feeling, allowing yourself to follow and become increasingly dependent on the logic of your brain, which can often lead to regrets in the future rather than trusting your gut instinct.

A baby or small child who has not learned to use their logical mind will rely purely on their senses to pick up whether the person or situation around them feels good or bad, often resulting in tears as they are not able to express themselves yet if they are picking up a bad feeling.

Animals are a good example of trusting this vibe even and the friendliest dog can potentially pick out a person with bad vibes from a crowd of dozens in an instant. Also, animals have a way of knowing when the energy fields of the earth are changing, which is really important when it comes to natural disasters and severe weather changes.

When your body becomes injured there is a break in the natural energy flow of the body and within a few seconds, especially in the epidermis (skin), your body senses the disruption and sends an electrical signal to the brain, which then releases more electrical signals to begin the process of stimulating the biological repair, regeneration and renewal of the damage in an attempt to heal the body.

Often healers will have a higher level or different current of energy than most people and when channelling the appropriate amount of universal energy, a touch of the hand can charge the disrupted flow of energy in another individual enough for the natural healing process to begin.

You are constantly absorbing energy from the environment, including light energy, the intake of oxygen, the food you eat and the earth itself. As well as the positive energy you absorb there is also negative energy which is invisible to the eye in the man-made/unnatural energies like computers, mobile phones, microwaves, Wi-Fi etc.

You are completely surrounded or soaked in these energies including the wiring in the walls of your home and in your bedroom, which can stop you from getting a good night’s sleep and all of this will increase the stress on your immune system.

As we are all unique then each person will react differently to the outside/man-made energies with some of you not being able to tolerate very much at all before feeling zapped, exhausted and run down or feeling quite ill/becoming ill.

The Earth itself is the natural antidote for electron deficiency and can provide you with an infinite flow of electrons, helping to keep you energised, fit and healthy. Yet, we have lost touch with our connection to the earth, becoming ungrounded – literally. Once we walked barefoot across the grass, mountains and sands having a complete connection to the earth at all times!

Then we made ourselves some shoes, first from animal’s hides/leather which still allowed some connection to the earth. When you wear a shoe with a leather sole, your feet sweat and permeate the leather with moisture and body salts, so the shoe becomes a semi-conductor permitting you to receive some electrons.

Now the majority of people walk on plastic or rubber soled shoes, wooden floors or carpet and sleep above the ground in beds, and some people are living very high up in flats and working in multi-level buildings all of which decreases the contact with the Earth’s natural energy.

The Earth is the biggest electrical object, and we are part of it. The reason it feels good to walk on grass and sandy beaches is because you are receiving a surge of healing electrons from the ground. You cannot get too much of this energy and when you are recharged the process stops, making it a safe and natural way to keep yourself fully charged.

Simply put your bare feet in contact with the earth, damp earth/grass is best whenever possible as water is a wonderful conductor or go for a paddle or swim in the sea.

When you are grounded to the Earth, the electrons flow instantly throughout your whole body, which is much quicker than waiting for particles to travel around in your bloodstream.

To recharge completely if you are feeling exhausted then it is best to remain connected to the earth for an hour or so and then you can top up at regular intervals that feel right to you 10 or 20 minutes at a time throughout the day. This will greatly help your struggling immune system.

Have you noticed that if your dog or cat is not feeling well they will go and lie under trees, porches and search out bare earth or grass to lie on as they are finding ways to connect to earths healing energies! Animals in the wild are rarely affected with inflammation, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, cancer or other illness that humans suffer from – yet pets that no longer have the connection to as much nature that they need will get similar illnesses to humans. What animals have always known, “modern science” is just now figuring out.

 So now there’s no doubt that you truly are an electrical being!  

As you can now easily connect to the wide world at the push of a button on the remote control or a click of the mouse, within a second you bring the whole world into your living room on a daily basis. Many of you are witnessing a lot of violence, natural disasters, human pollution killing wildlife, the global economy, war, murders and other tragedies to name a few.  The newspapers are regularly filled with stories for us to feel empathic or angry about as well and for those of you that tune into these stories – this constant negative input of energy will eventually soak in and fill up and attach in your physical body and auric field, weighing you down, creating an impact on your health physically, mentally and emotionally.

When you are an empathic person you will often find that you absorb the negative energy from situations or another person into your own body often not noticing it at the time until it is too late. It can cause blockages and tears within your aura and your chakras, which in turn makes your life more difficult to manage and lowers your energetic levels which can be very disempowering, leaving you exhausted and often living in fear.

When you live or work in circumstances that require you to give of your time and energy to help uplift another, it is very important that you make the effort and take the time to ensure that you yourself are in good health and filled with positive energy.

In fact, the first thing I teach in the healing course I do – is how to channel the universal energy so that it can be delivered to the person in need, rather than giving from your own personal energy, which can leave you feeling depleted and tired.

Make sure that you limit your time spent in negative situations, places and people and spend some quality time with yourself relaxing, unwinding, detaching from the day’s events, grounding to the earths energy and add in some positive socialising, laughter and play time to ensure that you are getting the right balance of energies within your life.

If you are worn out, feeling stressed and need a helping hand then an intuitive holistic healing session can help balance your chakras and remove negative energy from your aura helping you feel re-energised, in balance and re-vitalised.

Moment to Moment

How many times have people said to you “Live in the moment”?

 This is very challenging to do, if not near impossible, as each so called moment is so brief and no sooner has it arrived than it is gone. It becomes the past; it is no longer the now! Each moment in the now is constantly moving, becoming the next moment, so you need to become aware of one moment to the next. Continue reading Moment to Moment

The Souls Journey

We are all individual Souls – yet at times we forget and know ourselves just as human beings!

As a soul we also encompass all that is human about us and as you read this newsletter the actual word soul gets lost and/or changed. This is a huge subject and I have described its process as simply as I can so you can understand that you are always connected to your soul!!

Happy Christmas!

It only seems a short while ago that I wrote the newsletter for the beginning of the year. Time has passed quickly, the weeks turning quickly into months, the months into seasons and now the year has passed. 2016 was a year of completion, being a universal number 9, giving you the time to declutter 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 so you are ready to start afresh in 2017 – a new beginning of another cycle.

The light of one candle…

The light of one candle never diminishes by lighting another candle

I have always had a passion for helping others from a small child. My mother once said to me that I collected those in trouble, those not as strong as others and would take them under my wing to protect them from harm.

As I grew older I developed a keen interest in how the mind works and switched from reading fiction books to self-help books, devouring all the information that I could. Just like everyone else I have been through many life-changing situations and there have been times of happiness, times of loss, times of being unwell and within each situation times of growth – even if I didn’t recognise it at the time. Like the saying goes “hindsight is a wonderful thing”.

I am often asked” When did you start your spiritual journey?”

My answer is always the same. I have always been on my spiritual journey – yet I never recognised it was until around the age of 28. I wasn’t a child who saw spirit or colours around people naturally or if I did, I certainly cannot remember anything!

I wasn’t consciously looking to develop my senses and had no plans of becoming a healer/medium. Yet, here I am now with the ability to connect to those who have passed over and able to intuitively know and understand how and why a person has become unwell. (If you would like to know more of my story, I encourage you to download my FREE EBook “Acknowledging you are Psychic”).

I have been working and healing with hundreds of people for over 20 years and even to this day I still get amazed at the results that happen and often feel very humble at the miracles that take place. My experience of working with energy means that I have been able to help people and animals with various healing techniques – yet within those techniques, miracles happen which are unexplainable to me and even to science.

So how does the healing work and how am I able to help?

I have been able to develop, and I am always continuing to learn, how to be a master of my expanded natural senses – including my sight and how I feel the energy of others.

Let’s start with how I see – just like you I see the world in normal vision, yet I am also able to see much more than just the human body, I am able to see the energy within and around the body which is known as the Aura. Within the Aura are energy vortexes which are known as Chakras. You may already be aware of the 7 main Chakras and the roles that they play in your life, yet there are also over 200 minor Chakras throughout your body. All these vortexes have an important role to play with your health and the energy that you need to be able to enjoy a healthy and balanced life. I see the energy of a person in colours and, depending on what I see, help me to understand where the person is unwell, out of balance, or feeling stuck in their life. Also, at times, certain organs within the body are shown to me and when a person shares a conversation with me, different parts of the body light up and this shows me where stress/emotion or mental anxiety is being held.

I am highly sensitive to the emotions and feelings of others and am able to feel what another person is feeling and, again, this helps me to understand where and why the pain/hurt is being caused and enables me to channel and direct the universal white light healing energy to that area. I do not use my personal energy in any healing sessions – I use my intuition and mediumistic abilities to connect with my healing guides and have been working with two in particular for over 15 years with amazing outcomes and results that have had the doctors baffled many times, when a client has been told that they would just have to accept and live with their problem for the rest of their lives!!

So whether a person is just feeling out of sorts, looking for direction in life, feels depressed or has a serious ongoing illness and feels it is time now to look at alternative help, I am here to help.

Please feel free to phone or email me any questions you may have about how I could help you.

Letting Go

One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go, letting go of past hurts, anger, guilt, love, loss and betrayal.

It is easy to say “Let Go” yet often much more challenging to do so!

When you let go, you are creating space for something new, something better and giving yourself the room and the opportunity to continue to grow. Continue reading Letting Go

Psychic Protection

Psychic protection can be as natural as putting on your clothes in the morning, cleaning your teeth and checking your mobile phone is charged!

If you are a person who is particularly sensitive to others, then you can be like a sponge, soaking up negative energy from people around you.

It is very important to maintain your boundaries in dealing with demanding people.

Helping others is good, but not if it damages you in the process.

Your personal energy field, known as the aura, completely surrounds you – you can imagine this looks like an egg or a bubble and you are in the centre. Now, imagine your arms stretched out wide and add a few inches more. This is the minimum size you should keep your aura at.

Often when people are feeling under attack, insecure, or not feeling confident they will pull their aura in towards their body. Also, the aura will often shrink in size when a person is not well or will leak energy just like a tyre with a slow puncture!

The best way to be able to keep yourself from absorbing the effects of another person’s energy field is to keep yours large and strong. Again, imagine if you were a small sponge and somebody tipped a pint of water on you – you would be soaked, completely saturated in it and it would be a struggle for you to dry out!

Now, imagine you were a huge sponge and again somebody tipped a pint of water on you – yes you would get wet, a bit damp, yet it would be much easier for you to dry out in a shorter period of time.

When you choose to take care of yourself on all levels then you will find it easier not to absorb too much negative energy and if you do get splashed with some, it will be easier for you to shake it off!

Your auric field, combined with your chakras and your heart energy has the ability to sense information up to twenty five feet or more away. When you understand that as well as receiving information you too are giving out information, then this can help you to understand how your energy field is working for you in such a brilliant way.

The word “information” is a key word here, when you accept what you are sensing as information only – then you are less likely to absorb it and/or own it as your own. Also, you will begin to recognise more clearly when somebody is draining or taking your energy and be able to stop it.

We live in a world of energy. There’s not a single one of us that can say we’ve never energetically attacked another person or that we’ve never been energetically attacked by another person. This is the reason everyone needs a basic understanding of psychic protection techniques.

Some warning signs of psychic attack:

  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Nightmares
  • Anxiety or panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Pessimism, low confidence, negative thinking
  • Craving sugar, junk food and alcohol

What is a Psychic Attack?

This is when one person is draining another person’s energy or directing negative energy towards them. Some people do this consciously – but more often people are unaware of the effect they are having on the person under attack.

For example: imagine a mother repeatedly telling her husband that their child does not do his homework on time and that she could really shake him!

As she gives this negative information the husband will also be picturing his child in a negative way not doing the homework and have an image of his wife shaking the child.

Thoughts are very powerful and consist of energy.

Obviously, this would not be a conscious attack, yet that subtle energy would be received by the child from both parents.

Energy manifests and the chances of the child continuing not to do his/her homework will continue and the child could possibly start to experience headaches or even worse, illness, from subconsciously being shaken!!

People who feed off another’s energy are known as psychic vampires.

They work in a similar way to normal vampires, but instead of drinking blood, they tap into a person’s aura and drain their energy that way.

These people will often be intentional and deliberate in their behaviour, knowing exactly what they are doing even though they would not call it psychic attack, but would know it as being in control, manipulative etc.

Sometimes, it is possible to tell when you are under psychic attack because spending time with a particular person can leave you feeling drained. That person can be very needy or demanding, or very antagonistic and aggressive, and may manipulate you, their victim, into doing things that you really wouldn’t want to do.

Ultimately long-term psychic attack can have physical consequences and people can suffer illnesses as a direct result of being the subject of a psychic attack.

It is possible for you to drain your own energy when it comes from fear. Therefore, dealing with your own insecurities is very important for protecting yourself as, when your own energy field is weak, you become easy prey for others looking to feed from you.

Learn to love yourself. Trust and accept you are a great source of strength. Respect and honour your body by giving it the right fuel it needs to survive and thrive on. Do this by choosing what foods and nutrition you put in your body carefully and also what you put on your skin, as any toxins there may be in the product can be absorbed within 26 seconds into your bloodstream. Try to eliminate as many toxic products that you can from your home.

Choose who you spend your time with wisely, ensuring where ever possible the people you surround yourself with are positive, supportive, happy and well-balanced in their own lives.

There are many different protection techniques that you can use to help strengthen your own energy field. I suggest you find one that resonates with you and is easy for you to do.

You could practice your chosen psychic protection technique at least once a day, practising in a place where you feel safe and comfortable until your body picks up the habit and begins to naturally reinforce your protection with its own energy. After a month or two you should be proficient enough that you only need to re-visualise your chosen way of protection once a week. If you find yourself in a situation where you need an extra amount of protection, feel free to protect yourself again even if you have done so earlier in the day. As you become more comfortable and skilled at your chosen technique you will find it possible to reinforce your protection with little concentration and even while your body is in motion or otherwise distracted.

As you practice various techniques always remember to make careful notes on what happened with each one, so you can learn which one has the most benefit for you.

I personally use:

The Bubble Technique

Simply imagine yourself inside a ball of white light that turns away any negative energy before it can physically touch you. When you visualise this ball of light around you, you want to make sure it appears opaque and solid in your mind’s eye. This bubble should extend at least a foot above your head and at least 6 inches below your feet.

Make it wider than your arms stretched out, it doesn’t have to be a perfect sphere; just make it fit around your body in whatever shape seems most comfortable or appropriate. You need to ensure the energy in the areas above and below are just as strong as the areas in front of and behind you.

I like to imagine that the outside of my bubble has a boundary which is made up of a really fine metal, a metal not found here on earth, that it is really flexible, super slippery and it has tiny holes in it, that can allow positive energy through and that any negative energy will be blocked and slip off, as it does, I can still receive information of what it is about, yet be unaffected by it emotionally!

Rest assured that this bubble will move with you without hindrance. Any vibrations that touch it will simply pass over and around you like the wind moving around a mountain.

When you come up against someone else’s energy field, it will bend to compensate, but not break, much like two balloons pressing together. You need to hold the image of an impenetrable force field in your mind for at least a minute or two, before bringing your awareness back to the room.

Here are a couple more for you to choose from:

The Mummy Technique

The visualising of specific shapes forming around your body piece by piece adds focus and resolve to your psychic protection, and this is the basis of the mummy technique. Begin by creating the image of a ball of white light glowing just above your head where the crown chakra centre is located. Focus on the energy here, willing its intensity to increase. Visualise white light sweeping down from this powerful sphere in the shape of a wide ribbon that begins to wrap around your head. You may want to leave some space between the energy ribbons and your physical body, perhaps 3-4 inches. Have the ribbon continue to wrap around your head, overlapping itself and creating a solid sheet that surrounds your head in protective energy. Let the ribbon continue to spin around your shoulders, torso, hips, and legs all the way down to the feet, making sure to cover every spot so that you are entirely and safely wrapped. Once you’ve worked your way down to your feet, have it wrap underneath them, completing the blanket surrounding you. When you are completely wrapped, hold the image of what you just did in your mind for a few minutes before opening your eyes. This exercise is a great way to improve your skills with energy manipulation.

The Burning Flame Technique

The Burning Flame is best used in situations that may be dangerous or that require a great amount of psychic protection over a short period of time. If you are entering a place, meeting or situation with a large amount of negativity you can perform this technique. Some people visualise their shields as a fire surrounding them at all times which is fine, although the method presented here is geared towards emergency situations or on a temporary basis since it uses high amounts of energy.

Stand perfectly upright with your legs together and your arms flat against your side. Go deep inside yourself to the centre of your being. Approach all of this with a confident intensity, your mind focused on your need for protection. Find your centre and know that in your centre there is an intense source of energy, the very energy that all your natural abilities come from.

With your consciousness in this core of your being, create an eruption of energy within yourself. Like a volcano building up pressure, cause your energy to rise and expand from your centre. As the energy reaches the outside of your body have it burst into a purple flame that surrounds your body. The curved base of the flame should be at your feet and the tip of the flame above your head. The intense energy flame will burn any negative outside vibrations before they can reach you. This flame won’t harm you physically as it’s a spiritual flame, but it will stop any other spirit or energy from touching you.

Here are some positive affirmations that can be used to strengthen your energy field and they can be combined with the technique you have decided to use.

These affirmations will help to raise your vibration and put you into harmony with the positive forces of the universe:

  • “I am totally protected from all ill will and harm”.
  • “I am blessed and protected on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level”.
  • “I feel joy and love in everything I do”.

Why the last one? Joy and love are the keys to maintaining a healthy and high vibrational field. When we can turn our attitude towards complete joy and love we will, over time, eventually discover that we only attract those joyful and loving people and situations into our lives.

Any negative ones that do occur simply aren’t able to handle this type of energy for long periods of time and thus will remove themselves from your presence

There are many other ways for you to protect yourself, including the use of crystals and essential oils. Be creative in designing your own protection and find a way that works for you!
