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.


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.

Are You Ready to Embrace 2019?

Each new year brings the opportunity for you to make changes and set new goals!

With 2018 beginning to fade you can look forward with excitement to what this year will bring you, the year itself will be a lot lighter and gives you the opportunity to connect to your creative side, a year to be able to express yourself clearly, so choose empowering words for your body to hear as well as those around you.

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!

Ensure that you stay away from negative people who enjoy conflict or confrontation – they will drain your energy and definitely slow you down from achieving the lifestyle you wish to live.

Spend more time with loved ones and friends that are of like mind that uplift you and support you.

Last year was a fast and hectic year for many and was about decluttering and about putting down your foundations for this year, so, take the time to double check that you have sorted out your cupboards and that you are on track for your plans for this year.

Create a new vision board and check it every 3 months to see if you are still heading in the right direction or even if you have changed your mind about some things, this will give you the opportunity to alter it and update it regularly.

Schedule in quiet times where you can disconnect from the busyness of world including the television and social media and continue to say “No” to offers that do not excite you.

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

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 the 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.

We all know that worrying is a waste of time, it zaps your mental energy and this is more draining than the physical body going for a work out at the gym. There are many different techniques that can help you redirect your mental thoughts, experiment with them to discover which ones work for you – if you need help please let me know.

Imagine for a moment how your life would be if you were not attached to your mental worries!

Think of your garden for a moment – when your flowers are not growing properly you tend to the surroundings, add more fertiliser, pull out the weeds and give them water. The same is for yourself; you cannot expect to heal if you are surrounded in an environment that is toxic and negative.

Make the choice to change the things in your life that you have outgrown, as you let go of them you will have the space and time to try some new activities that you have been putting off. When you focus your energy onto achieving what kind of life you would like to have then the attention you give to it the energy increases and flows with ease. The wheel of life is continually turning one cog at a time, so be patient and persistence and 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 this year?

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 become in touch with your full potential.

Allow your ideas to flow and then take action.

Listen to your soul, that quiet inner voice that never shouts and follow its guidance as you navigate this wonderful year ahead.

Enjoy your journey through 2019!

How Clean Is Your Aura?

How do you know when it is time for you to have an energy detox?

Your physical body can get overloaded with toxins from the chemicals in your food and the pollution in the air that surrounds you. Your aura/energy field will benefit from changing your diet to a more balanced life style of getting the proper amount of sleep; eating fresh organic foods; choosing to use non-toxic products like essential oils to clean your skin and freshen the air around you.

Yet, even with a healthy and balanced diet your energy field can still remain toxic and become heavy, blocked and stagnant when you are holding onto emotions that no longer serve you like anger, doubt, fear, disappointment, suffering and worrying.

You start to feel stuck in a rut, unmotivated and tired even after having a sleep. Life starts to become mundane and you feel that you are just going round in circles, not really getting anywhere or achieving what you have set out to do.

I often meet people who are leaking energy from their auras and are completely unaware of it – a simple knock on the shoulder or a bang on the head is enough to create a small tear in your auric field and even though you are designed to renew your energy each day and capable of self-healing, if there is a just a small tear in your auric field it will be like blowing up a balloon and then a few hours later you find it has slowly deflated.

Although you may not think of your Aura very often – it is continuously working on your behalf.

When you walk into a room you automatically sense who is a happy, confident person or who is depressed and feeling bitter about the world. Your aura is always interacting with others and it filters information to you as to whether you can trust and feel safe with who you are with or whether you have things in common and it also recognises similar experiences to that which you have had – even when a person chooses not to verbally share with you.

I often talk about the 7 Main Chakras that are located throughout the Aura and the psychical body, these energy centres alone have over 72,000 nerve receptors and it is their role to source information on your behalf by creating electromagnetic pulses that can recognise, read and then relay information back to you about what is happening within your own personal energy field and that of the person/s you are with or the environment that you are in.

Your Aura protects your physical body and all of your major and minor chakra centres – you can imagine it as a protective bubble around your body. It is egg shaped and a healthy size aura will be at least 3ft (90cm) or more in size all around you. To feel balanced and centred you need to be in the middle of your aura.

Often I meet people whose auras are wider on one side than the other, it is very common for the right hand side of the aura to be wider than the left in people who give a lot or have to do many things for other people and who cannot or do not take time for themselves in a nurturing way. Also, the right hand side of the aura can become expanded around the head area when they are always busy thinking and planning for the next thing to do or worrying about things that have not happened yet and not being or able to focus on the now/the present moment.

‘Prana’ or the universal life source energy is continually flowing through your energy body/aura and any disturbances in this flow can create pain or illnesses in your physical body. Therefore, it is crucial to keep a healthy, clean and energized aura for maintaining your well-being.

Once there is pain or illness in your physical body, it will still show up as a disturbance in your auric field. For example, if you are becoming dehydrated, then I will see the shape of your liver in your auric field and it often shows up as a green colour, when there is more going on than dehydration then I see the shape and the colour of it differently often as a mucky orange or yellow with a dirty brown tinge to it. It is the livers role to detox your physical body and yet on an energetic level this is where you would hold on to toxic emotions that are connected to anger, resentment, bitterness and frustration to name a few.

Remember that your energy is made of an electromagnetic field and if you look at it from a scientific point of view then it is obvious that you will need to make sure that your circuit (energy) is flowing smoothly and that you are at the correct wattage to ensure that you are functioning/operating on the best energy you can have. You can liken this to a light bulb – do you feel you are living and getting by on a low 20 watt bulb or are you feeling healthy and bright like a100 watt bulb?

In our modern culture it is taken for granted that a person needs to look after their personal hygiene creating many rituals/habits: they include cleaning your teeth in the morning, put on your deodorant and fresh clothes, washing your hands after using the toilet, keeping your hair clean and showering regularly to name a few. This is also extended out into your environment by hoovering your house, washing up and dusting etc. to weeding your garden.

Imagine for a moment if you were to never clean your teeth, brush your hair, shower or change your clothes, hoover your front room or change your sheets. It would not take long before your body apart from beginning to smell – becomes a welcoming place for harmful bacteria to breed and create various illnesses and disease.

You could liken your aura to a beautiful white suit that you are wearing and, just like the clothes that you wear, when you wash it regularly then it is easy to get rid of the dust and dirt that has accumulated, yet if you do not look after it then the dirt becomes embedded and the stain is much more difficult to remove.

And, just as a smelly person is unpleasant to be around, as your energy field becomes clogged and stagnant then eventually, even though others may not consciously know why, they will find you uncomfortable to be around which can be unhealthy not only for you but for them as well.

There are many ways that you can help your aura remain strong, vibrant and healthy and here are a few easy and simple examples:

  • Taking a swim in the ocean or soaking in a salt water bath greatly helps release negative toxins within the aura. If you do not live near the sea or have a bath – then massage or rub in sea salt over your body before taking a shower, as you rinse the salt off not only will it remove any dead skin it will freshen your aura at the same time.
  • Spend 10 minutes early in the morning or at sunset soaking up the sun’s rays and you will feel your aura expand and become more vitalised, filling you with more energy, optimism and it has the added benefit of receiving loads of vitamin D.
  • Taking a walk on a breezy day is great for releasing unwanted energies and if you live by the sea the salt and minerals will give even more benefit to your auric field. Stand facing towards the breeze with your arms outstretched – in fact the windier it is the better!
  • Go for a walk in Nature or spend some time in your garden, wherever possible remove your shoes or invest in a pair with leather soles. This will help you become grounded and support your energy field in releasing unwanted blocks and toxins.
  • Reduce the time that you are exposed to electrical equipment. The radiation and different frequencies they emit interfere with your own natural body rhythms and build up static in your energy field. Make sure you recharge all your mobile phones away from your bedroom or at the very least away from your head when sleeping.
  • Keep an awareness of people and places that sap your energy and leave you feeling drained and remove yourself completely or limit your time spent there or with a particular person/s.

There are many other ways to help keep your aura clean and healthy including using crystals, sage sticks, essential oils, mediation and yoga to name a few.

Remember your aura is an extension of yourself and when it is in a vibrant healthy state then it acts as a protective shield against the negativity that is around you. When it becomes weakened, fragile and damaged you will feel scattered, drained, unwell, feel overburdened with toxic emotions like anger, fear and doubt. You will find it difficult to let go of disappointment, failure and upset from the past, unmotivated and blocked from moving forward in your life.

Depending on how you feel – then it is beneficial at times to having a helping hand and consider alternative healing. As an intuitive holistic healer I am able to see energy blockages, tears and damage in your auric field and see where the physical body has pain and illness and help to clear these unwanted energies.

Healing will leave you feeling lighter and brighter and strengthen your auric field and is able to help clear energies from the mental and emotional layers which contribute to depression, tiredness and more serious illnesses.

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

Solar Plexus Chakra:

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.

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.

Your Soul is Eternal

Imagine that you are a beautiful orb of energy and you are made up of light containing all the colours of the rainbow and many more.

Now imagine that you are residing in the universe surrounded by more beautiful orbs similar to yourself, each one of them sitting side by side, touching; making up the universal consciousness. Each one still individual, yet you are able to communicate/know and absorb all the information from each one.

You may liken this to being an individual drop of water in the ocean and when all the drops come together the sea is created containing all the individual drops of water!

As this beautiful individual orb of energy you have the ability to store all the knowledge and experiences that you have taken part in. You may think of this as being a “super advanced computer” which also has access to the experiences that the other orbs around you have had at the same time.

You then decide that you would like to have an experience on Earth so you incarnate as a human being. Two thirds of your orb’s energy is then located to your chosen body which then resides within and around it (this is known as your aura and contains your chakra’s) and one third stays within the universal sea of energy and the 2 separated parts stay connected by a thread of energy often known as a silver cord.

So, the part of your energy that remains above is now known as your higher self/intuition etc. The higher self continues to collect information through the silver cord from the energy that has incarnated which we will call the lower self (or the unconscious mind). The lower self also has its own mind (also sometimes known as your ego) which can be likened to the backup drive on a computer that collects and stores information for what it needs for this earthly lifetime.

Now, when it is time for you to pass over at the end of this lifetime, your physical body will be recycled into the earth. The two thirds of the orb that incarnated (aura/chakra’s) get reunited with your higher self – becoming complete once again in the universal consciousness and the mind/backup drive is deleted as all this life’s information and experiences are being held in the complete orb which we are likening to the “super advanced computer” and this is why the human mind fears death as it is aware that it will no longer have a job or role to play within the energetic cycle of life.

As your soul enters a human body it gives the body life. When the soul leaves your human body it no longer has life. Every living thing is sustained and given life by the energy of a soul.

The energy of your soul enables your heart, lungs and all other organs within your body to be able to do their individual jobs in keeping your body healthy and working properly.

To help your physical body work smoothly you need to create a lifestyle where you can eat healthy foods, drink plenty of water and be in an environment free from as many man-made toxins as possible.

Maintaining a nutritionally healthy physical body supports and helps your energy body in a really positive way.

Yet, one also has to remember that energy also makes up your thoughts, emotions and feelings as well. As energy gives life to your entire existence then you will now understand how important it is to look after, maintain and balance it. This way you can recognise the difference between a healthy vibrant energy and one that is depleted which, in turn, can create depression and illness.

The majority of the time, people seek out medical care after they are already showing symptoms of a problem within their mental health or physical body.

Intuitive Holistic Healing can help you maintain a healthy energetic level through balancing your chakras and cleansing your Auric Field and can help as a preventative towards illnesses manifesting within the physical body.

Maintaining a healthy energy level enables your body to be able to release and clear any negative or stagnant energy that potentially could create physical or mental illness.

With regular maintenance, either fortnightly or monthly, your energy body will naturally keep you mentally, spiritually, psychologically and physically healthy.   Sustaining a vibrant and flowing energy system is the key to a healthy life.

How are you feeling today?

This question often gets asked automatically as part of a greeting when meeting with a friend, loved one or colleagues.

Your response may vary to person to person – yet often you will answer with something that is quite general like “I am fine”; “I am bearing up”; “so-so”; “good thanks”;  “overall I am okay” etc.

You can often convince yourself that things are fine when actually they are not!

When you find yourself out of sorts – do you just continue to push or muddle through?

Maybe, telling yourself that those aches and pains, the busy head thoughts will go away if you just ignore them.

I would like to ask you: How are you really feeling today?

 Each day in your daily life every interaction and reaction you have impacts on your energy level and your state of being. When your energy is drained or you are in a low vibrational state then your energy field and chakras become stagnated and blocked. This leads to having negative thoughts and emotions, tiredness, depression and ill health.

Your energy is constantly changing its frequency of vibration sometimes being higher and sometimes lower and this is okay as it helps you navigate through life itself. Yet, when your energy remains low over a period of time, you will find that you become overwhelmed easily and have difficulty making small decisions and larger choices become impossible.

You become uninterested in having a good time, mixing with your friends or doing anything creative. Anxiety and stress levels increase and tiredness becomes exhaustion.

Your energy is not limited to your physical body it emanates energy within and outside of your body and is known as an Aura. You are made up of this energy with your physical body being the densest part and, as it expands out wards, it becomes finer and lighter which is not seen by many with the human eye.

Your aura is egg shaped and flows through and around your body. The average healthy balanced aura is equal on each side and, if you were to stretch your arms out either side of your body, it would extend at least 3 to 6 inches beyond the tips of your fingers and at least 3 feet above and below you, with you being within the centre.

Your aura is constantly receiving information from all that is going on around you and only some of this information is filtered through to you. It is like a sieve, sorting through what is important for you as an individual and what is not.

This is then delivered to you through your energy vortexes which are called chakras – could you imagine if you received every piece of information that was around you? It would be complete overload to your physical, mental and emotional systems.

You have seven main chakras and over 200 smaller chakras throughout your body and each main chakra is connected to a layer of energy which surrounds your body.

Your aura, more than any other single human trait, manifests the sum and substance of your existence as an endless life force in the universe. Its vibration is the energy that you emanate throughout space. It is the life force that flows through your entire body and dictates the flow of your life. It determines the events and people that you attract in your life.

When you suffer from stress, have emotional issues or experience trauma, it affects your aura in many different ways. It can become depleted, congested, distorted, and fragile – creating tears in it. Your auric colours which, when you are healthy look clean and bright now become heavy, dirty and murky and all of these changes within your aura over a period of time then manifest into dis-ease or illness within your physical body.

Everything is energy, including your thoughts – positive or negative will affect your energy field either lifting or lowering your vibrational energy.

Have you ever wondered why when your physical body gets dirty, it affects your general sense of well-being?

This is because the dirt you have picked up contains energy too and, depending on where you got it from, can make you feel tired and depleted. If you were to stop your personal hygiene completely, then obviously your body would get dirtier by the day and after a while it would affect you mentally and emotionally. Then as time continued you would also collect bacteria and viruses that create disease and eventually lead to death.

So whether you pick up dirt that is visible or invisible it is all made up of energy that affects your well-being and personal energy field.

When a person takes a First-Aid course, the first thing that they are taught is to STOP THE ACCIDENT!! When there is a car crash on a motorway, the first job is NOT to care for the injured people, but to make sure there will not be another crash causing more injuries.

It is important for you to look after your aura and chakras from negative outside influences so they do not ripple through your energy field to your physical body.

Here are some signs that your energy/auric field and chakras are out of balance:

The Root Chakra is located at the base of the spine:

When out of balance you can feel sluggish and stuck in life, often find you’re in a financial crisis and may have feelings of abandonment.

The Sacral Chakra is located just below the belly button:

When out of balance you can have trouble with intimacy and making love, view yourself in a negative way and lack connection with others and are often are abused by others.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is located below the breastbone in between your lower ribs:

When out of balance you can feel that you are a victim of the world’s circumstances, easily give in to the demands of others and be unable to focus on your own dreams and passions, continually seeking the approval of others.

The Heart Chakra is located at the centre of the chest:

When out of balance you are not able to love fully, become afraid of commitment to yourself and others, lose the feeling of happiness and joy and start to feel resentful as the sense of purpose and meaning in life disappears.

The Throat Chakra is located in the hollow of the throat:

When out of balance you find it is hard to speak up for yourself, feel frustrated at not being heard and spend time trying to please everybody around you.

The Third Eye Chakra is located between the eyebrows:

When out of balance you can’t sense your intuition, making decisions becomes a daunting task and you can’t hear your inner wisdom. You overthink everything finding yourself continually thinking about the past or the future.

The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head:

When out of balance you will often have headaches and migraines, feel disconnected from the spiritual world and more attracted to the material world, you are unable to feel the guidance of the higher universal energies and become afraid of change – often repeating the same bad decisions over and over again.

All your individual chakras are connected to each other through your auric field and this can lead to multiple blockages within your energy field and physical body.

Each person’s energy flow is completely unique to them depending on their belief systems, the environment and circumstances around them.

When your energy is of a high vibration and flowing easily throughout and around your body then you will have less mental and physical health challenges.

Here are a few positive changes that can happen when your chakras and auric field are flowing effortlessly:

  • You stop dwelling on regrets and no longer blame others for your problems
  • You avoid falling into the trap of victim mentality and being judgmental to others
  • You no longer need to be right all the time and you stop living in fear
  • You no longer feel the need to buy things you don’t need and you stop feeling guilty about the choices you make
  • You no longer worry too much and resist changes
  • You become responsible for your own happiness, your own life, and your choices

By now, you will be beginning to understand that your chakras and your aura are extremely important to your well-being and how and what you want to create in your life.

Happy New Year!

As 2017 comes to an end, it’s time to step forward into another new year. The energy that this year requires you have is the confidence to follow through with the foundations that you started to build last year and look after the seeds of new ideas that you planted. This year brings in a mastership vibe that says ‘what you have sown is truly what you will reap’.

It’s an Eleven Year, a significant spiritual master number which has been a major factor in many world events.

 2 + 0 +1 +8 = 11 and 1 +1 =2 making this year 2018 a Universal 11/2 year

 It is a time to slow down, be patient and ensure that you take the time to follow through with what you started in 2017.

The number Two supports the Eleven with a slow and steady journey of exciting connections between your past, your present, and your future. You will be able to use the relationship between two and eleven to help you as you move through the year. It can help with your goals; partnerships; relationships with the self; patience; attention to detail; cooperation; sensitivity; discovering the softness in your strengths; your strengths within your softness and allowing you to see the bigger picture with clarity as you move into the year making gradual and solid progress.

 2018 is a year to adopt the energy of staying power and perseverance as you take one step at a time with the courage and trust in your intuition that you have to ability to create the abundant lifestyle that you deserve.

It is about balance and integrating all that you need into it to be healthy, feel happy and successful in all areas of your life. It is a year where you gain mastery over your life as you continue to learn how the subtle and not so subtle energies of the universe work.

It is a year to remain committed to yourself, to remain and continue on your own personal healing journey, to put your needs and health first. It’s a time to create strong boundaries to ensure that your own energy stays intact and healthy so that you are in a good position to be able to help and support others without feeling depleted or stretched.

2018 is a year to stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right!

Being an 11 universal year brings huge potential. It’s dynamic and gives you many insights into your own personal strengths and weaknesses. It is strongly connected to your intuition and asks that you be willing to be receptive to new changes and receive the intuitive guidance it gives you to help enhance your journey and inspire others to be more light hearted in their approach to life’s challenges.

 Amongst all of the massive shifts and changes that will take place this year, you will be required to be spontaneous, flexible and patient. It is important for you not to become overloaded with activities that exhaust you and make sure that you take the time to relax and be still. This will be a challenge within itself as it can be difficult at times to do nothing, yet this is important so you can see it as a productive rest, a time for you to heal on all levels.

You could use these times to connect with your inner self and reflect on your values, establish your priorities, how you wish your life to be, how you can wisely focus on getting there one sure step at a time, to create your plans and how to follow through with them. The overall theme of 2018 is abundance, filled with delight and moment to moment explorations in each and every day. It is a year of manifesting what you desire, knowing that in this year all will work out and miracles can and do happen.

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

This is your life so make the choice to take action on your goals and dreams this year.

There is no better time than 2018 to do it!

Happy New Year

If you would like any help in identifying any issues that maybe blocking you from moving forward in 2018 I am here to help you finally move forward and create those changes you truly deserve.

Happy Christmas

December 2017 has arrived. It seems as if it was only a short while ago that we left winter behind and, yet, here we are again. December is like Friday – at the end of the week you can enjoy the weekend. Being at the end of all months it gives you the opportunity to enjoy every part of it. It is time for you to take time out and to connect with your family and friends, sharing all the many different Christmas Festivities.

2017 was a year of new beginnings; a time of letting go of what no longer served you for your highest good, a time to de-clutter and set into place what you would like to be doing differently over the coming years.

It would have seemed like you were on a roller coaster at times, with its highs and lows, scary yet full of excitement. In this last month of the year as you snuggle up on the sofa with a warm drink and soft blanket with the shorter days and longer nights already set in. The many experiences you have had, the good ones and the not so good. How much have you learnt as you reflect back over the past 11 months?

December gives you the opportunity to be inspired and create new visons for the coming future. Being in 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 is a month for strengthening your root chakra energy, a time to clear those last remnants of beliefs, thoughts and behaviours that you do not want to take in 2018.

It’s also a good time for you to think about what you would like to do differently next year. Make realistic New Year resolutions and innovative plans for your future.

So, tie up your loose ends, knowing new beginnings are just round the corner and create a lovely Christmas 2017 filling it with happy memories, laughter and love.

Happy Christmas to you.

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.
