▲ Growth & Truth ▲

It feels like it has been a deeply transformational year already which I know is not always an easy process to go through. It feels like the themes of this year are GROWTH and TRUTH. We all know that truth can hurt. Sometimes in order to live in our truth we have to go through a lot of change and GROWTH to get to that point.

More and more I am noticing people waking up to their own magnificence. Realising their true potential and seeing just how important it is to be truly happy. No longer hiding from their soul purpose. Whether you are ready for the truth or to take action is another story but having awareness is enough for the process to begin. You may have had the sudden urge to follow your heart and take a big step whether its leaving a toxic relationship, moving home, leaving your job or going through a purification process to shed an unhealthy lifestyle. This year feels like a push forward to be in alignment with your true self. To be authentic because you simply cannot do it any other way anymore.

Whatever it is that may be changing in your world just make sure you support yourself during this time. It will be normal to experience what I would call 'growing pains' during these changes. Just rest assured that self growth means you are expanding and moving forward, so whatever comes up in the process is all part of the journey and all relevant. Something that many forget to do which can be our biggest support during these times is to take time to be STILL. Slow down. Take a breath. It is in our stillness that we are able to clearly see or hear the truth which lies within our hearts.  

GROWTH

▲ GOING WITHIN▲

As we move through the transition of seasons from Summer into Autumn, we notice our inner world shifting too. I have noticed this seasonal shift hit many quite hard in terms of bringing up a lot of shadow to the surface. Shadow being the parts of ourselves that we do not particularly tend to embrace. For example, anxiety, fear, self doubt, anger. Autumn seems to remind us of the importance of balance between darkness and light. Natures cycles serve as a mirror of what is going on within our own lives. The darker nights and shorter days naturally lead us to turn inward. When we look within we are tuning into our inner self on a deeper level ready to do the work or at least begin acknowledging it. This is when we can become quiet enough to listen to what is going on inside and have true reflection. This is the time that we take all of the lessons learned from the past few months and put them into action. Shedding our skins and letting go of anything that no longer serves us. Walking into this new cycle with greater clarity and insight into our path ahead. 

What valuable lessons have you learned in recent months? Collectively we have been experiencing a number of powerful Universal shifts lately including the last Mercury Retrograde in August and the Autumn Equinox in September. As these Universal shifts take place we go through our own journey of personal growth too. We are ONE with Nature. We are so intimately connected and we must try and keep this knowledge present within us. By moving consciously through the cycles it means we can really embrace the flow and honour all that each season brings forth within ourselves.

Whilst many of us may experience some resistance to this change of season as we leave behind the Summer, we must instead learn to embrace the gifts of this season too. As we watch the leaves fall from the trees it reminds us that nothing is permanent - this is one of the biggest lessons I learnt this summer. Life is an ever flowing journey, we cannot hold on to things but we can flow with it in each moment. I found the August Mercury Retrograde full of valuable yet extremely challenging lessons during my trip to Lisbon for my 30th Birthday. Each challenge served as a welcome reminder that all we really have is NOW. You probably hear this saying a lot right? Well until you really take notice of what that could mean in your own life it doesn’t have a lot of meaning. I learned this the hard way but I am so grateful for that. I would always try and practise being in the present in every day life but being a sensitive and emotional being, sometimes the emotion or reaction to a situation would get in the way.

When something happens that is beyond our control it is always a good test for our growth. Look at your reaction to the situation first, rather than the situation itself. If you can remember this tool it can be one of your most powerful assets to keep you centred and in the NOW. Take a split second to ask yourself is this situation really worth my frustration or sadness? Or can I bypass the pulls of the dramatic ego and come into my heart space where I can take a balanced perspective at what is happening? If something has happened that your going to forget about in 1 week or even 6 months time why would it be worth your energy right now? If we remember that all we have is the present moment then we would not care for the past nor the possible future outcomes, we would be in a state of acceptance. This would mean saving a lot of wasted energy and time as we CHOOSE to react to the situation from a apace of balance and more importantly TRUST in all that is. Events can change. Plans can be disrupted. People can let you down. The only thing you can really control is your own perspective and reaction. So why not own it? Its challenging work sometimes but so worth it! We can find lessons in everything and grow from every situation if we want to. 

If you experience even the smallest ray of silence, consider that you have seen the whole sun because even the smallest experience of light will help you to reach to the sun. If I am sitting in a dark room and I see a thin ray of light, there are two ways I can relate to it. One way would be to say, ‘What is this small ray of light compared to the deep darkness surrounding me? What can one small ray of light do? - there is so much darkness all around me.’ The other way would be to think, ‘In spite of all this darkness, there is at least one ray of light available to me, and if I go towards that ray of light I may reach the source where the sun is.
— Osho

Balanced Being ♡ Balanced Body

The connection between our emotions and our physical body is insanely intimate. Once you understand this relationship you become more in tune with your entire being and see just how deeply the link runs. This awareness will keep you in check with your overall health, ensuring you can stay as balanced as possible by respecting and knowing yourself on a whole new level. 

Many people automatically choose to take pain killers when they begin to feel pain in the body rather than actually honouring why the pain is there in the first place. That's what most are bought up to do in the Western world, making the mind and body seem like separate things. You can take a tablet to mask the pain but does that cure it? Of course there is a huge place for Western medicine in the world and for some people it is a necessity, but many are waking up to the vast alternative healing methods available which can get to the emotional root so the physical issue subsides naturally. You have probably noticed mindfulness has become renowned in recent years which is so important because it brings the knowledge forward of how vital a healthy mind is for overall health. 

Even the word ‘disease’ tells us there is ‘dis-ease’ in the body where it is out of balance. Put simply, every single thing in the Universe is made up of vibrations. Energy is at the centre of all matter, the human body included. Every cell in our body is radiating its own frequency. Our subtle energy bodies are basically a template of our physical body, meaning our emotional health can manifest into the physical. 

Within our energy bodies are Chakras which are like channels located on specific points of the body through which energy can flow in and out. There are 7 main Chakras which are all associated with a different set of organs, functions and systems corresponding with each location. They represent our emotions and consciousness as well as our physical body. Whether aware of it or not, everyone experiences the mind body connection during everyday life. When you are feeling emotional and you stop yourself from crying you will be aware of the huge lump feeling in your throat, this is your Throat Chakra. When you feel anxious and you rush to the toilet because your stomach feels like its in knots, this is the Solar Plexus which is located in the navel area linking with the digestive system and central nervous system. When you go through a difficult break up and your heart feels broken which comes with sadness, pain and grief, this is the Heart Chakra. If these emotional imbalances build up without being released then it can cause a symptom on the physical level. The physical symptom is basically communicating with you through your own body via your consciousness. So the ideal is to address any emotional blockages before they are able to manifest physically. 

There is so much research out there to confirm the powerful effect our intentions and thoughts have on our energy and the world around us. Dr Masaru Emoto is well known for his experiments testing the effect thoughts and emotions have on water molecules. He proved how the structure of water is effected differently by positive and negative thoughts. His photographic evidence of the experiments showed how the water structure changed by even a slight change of intention so when positive words were spoken the water structures formed beautiful, symmetrical patterns but when negative words were spoken the water structures formed dense and dark shapes. The human body is made up of around 70% water so taking this into consideration you can imagine how influenced we are by our own thoughts and the environment around us. 

Even the placebo effect reminds us how powerful our beliefs can be on our own physical body. To this day placebos are still successfully used in the medical world which goes to show how widely recognised it can be that our beliefs alone can effect us and even heal us in some cases. I will never forget hearing a story from my friends mum who told me all about one of her teenage daughters birthday parties. She had agreed to let her daughter drink alcohol at the party. She watched as the whole room of teenagers fell about on top of each other and fell into things, slurring their words. However she didn’t worry because little did they know that there was actually 0 alcohol in the drinks at all, it was completely fake. The sheer fact that they had believed they were drinking alcohol made them react in that way as if they were drinking it. 

I have experienced first hand many times during my life how thoughts effect my physical body. One time I had been feeling pain under my right rib cage. The pain was there constantly like a dull ache but at times it was extremely intense and when I done energy work on myself to feel what was going on, I could actually feel a huge disturbance in my energy in that area. It was as if there was a hole in my energy field and I could feel dense energy pouring out but no matter how much work I done on the area it only temporarily lessened it rather than cured it, I felt like I wanted to get my hands deep inside of my body but it was as if it had been building up for years to this point from a very deep place, too far in to reach. I was suffering with very low self-esteem and thoughts of self-loathe, the thoughts were on constant loop and I had got used to them playing around in my mind all the time. The missing link was right there. The low vibrational emotions and feelings about myself had manifested physically as if to scream and shout at me until I listened. The dense area in my energy formed to funnel the toxic energy out of me because on a subconscious level I knew these thoughts did not serve my soul, I had simply got used to the thought patterns and let them become part of me. 

Once I addressed the emotional issue at the core and made positive changes enabling me to shift the thought patterns and come into a place of self-acceptance, which happened over a long period of transformation, the disturbance in my energy vanished and therefore the physical pain went and has not come back since. The reason I had pains under my right rib cage around my lung is because it linked to my Heart Chakra which covers this area. I opened my heart to heal others yet I did not give myself the same loving and kind thoughts causing imbalance in my heart energy. By raising my own vibration, opening my heart to myself for what felt like the first time in my life, I was able to heal. In my case it was essential that I changed my way of being in order for the blockage to reverse because recognising it alone would not have been enough, I had to go through a transition and luckily I listened to the physical signs before they could manifest into anything more serious. Had I not been so aware of energy myself, I would have struggled to rid myself of the pain and probably spent tons of time and money on various physical work which would have only eased the pain temporarily. 

One of my friends had a bad infection in one of her fingers. It lasted for months on end and no medication seemed to shift it. Only when she delved into her own emotional and spiritual healing did the answer finally come. The moment she fully committed to her true path to be a healer the infection went and has never come back. The finger which was infected was her engagement finger on her left hand which correlates to the Third Eye Chakra. She was not seeing her own path with clarity, choosing to ignore the signs until she was pushed to accept her true spiritual path by the Universe.

Our body is our friend so we must treat it like one rather than treating it like a vessel or machine for us to use. It well tell us when something is not right, it talks to us in its own language. It is very intelligent, all you need to do is listen and honour the cues. 

Through working with energy so closely I see examples of the connection between our mind, emotions and physical body all the time. I meet people who have suffered with back and shoulder pains for many years which no massage or body work has been able to shake yet they can walk out pain free after even just a single energy healing session. Why? Because the emotional blockage is acknowledged rather than just easing the physical level. Some people who experience recurring pains may not be ready to make the life changes needed to bring them into positive emotional health yet so the pain relief will only be temporary. For instance someone may be experiencing consistent pain in their shoulders and neck area which links to the Throat Chakra. The Throat Chakra energies are not aligned when we are not honouring our own truth or expressing ourselves honestly. So if someone is in a job which makes them feel unsatisfied but they do not feel ready to make the move yet, the Throat Chakra will be in a state of disharmony which is when the ailments in this area can occur. The Throat Chakra literally holds the power of choice within our life, if we make a choice based on our hearts desires we are opening the energy and allowing it to flow freely but if we ignore it and put off taking action even though we recognise we must make a change, then we are choosing to stay stuck instead of trusting in ourselves and Divine. All kinds of physical problems can occur if we live with blockages in our Throat Chakra including thyroid problems, sore throat and addiction. 

You could literally live the healthiest lifestyle on the highest vibrational diet, drinking the purest water but in a total paradox still be filling your body with unhealthy toxicity through your very own thoughts. Negative thoughts and emotions are poison to the body. Become conscious of your thoughts and feelings and if they are on a negative loop then transform them. Direct them to come from your heart instead, a place of empathy and love. Healing demands action on all levels of your being. Change can be feared but can be so rewarding once you are ready to take a leap. Just remember how connected your inner being is to your outer being. Support your physical body with wholesome and nutrient rich foods, healthy sleep patterns, regular exercise and movement. Support your energy body by meditating, spiritual practise, forgiveness, letting go of the past, expressing yourself through creativity and honouring your true path. 

So next time you feel a nagging pain or ailment in your body, maybe it is time for you to look a little deeper? Luckily we are living in a very transformational time right now, where alternative healing methods are becoming more and more widely accepted. You will be drawn to whatever healing method is right for you at the right time and at times it is all part of a process where you will need to go through your own self-work alongside it too. Instead of holding onto your wounds, look into them and shed them. 

Energy Healing, Reiki, Yoga, Acupuncture, Meditation, Sound Healing and Reflexology are just some of the ways in which you can balance your energy and calm the mind. For instance during a typical Energy Healing session I will assess the energy flow in the Chakras to see where there may be imbalances then I work intuitively through the entire energy field and physical body on front and back with my hands to align the Chakras and release any blockages using various energy and sound techniques, which means by the end of the session mind, body and spirit has gone into a harmonious state where energies are flowing and the bodies natural healing process can take place. The blockages are discussed at the end of the session to bring awareness to any areas of being that may need to be addressed to ensure long lasting results take place. The process is all about you getting in touch with your self on a deeper level and in touch with your own power which happens naturally when blocks are removed.

Creating, dancing, singing and doing whatever brings your heart pure happyness are all ways in which you can allow life force to flow freely through you n your every day life. As you walk down your path you will find your own medicine in many different forms.

△Transformation △

I am sending love and healing vibes to everyone during this deeply transformational time. Collectively we are going through huge transitions right now. Self-realisations have been coming to the surface for many which triggers profound change as it is coming from such a real place within. It's like we can no longer hide from who we truly are and whatever it takes to strip us back to our core is happening in one way or another. Although this may prove testing it is for our greater good. We are living in pinnacle times where we are awakening at rapid speed. The veils between dimensions feel so thin. Our collective consciousness is rising which means huge shifts are taking place in each and every one of us whether we are consciously aware of this or not. These shifts take place in the form of feeling compelled to take a leap of faith towards your true destiny, breaking away from toxic relationships or jobs or letting go of old wounds from the past once and for all. Ultimately this feels like a path to greater freedom where your inner being can express itself through you more freely. You just have to take the step in the right direction and the rest will follow. 

I have been in service more than ever before the past few months and it has been truly beautiful to work with so many courageous souls. For those who I have worked with I just want to say it really is such an honour to work with you, so thank you from the depths of my heart for aligning with me and taking the brave step to go within and heal.

Personally so much has happened in the past few months and it felt relentless, I have been lost for words at times, pushing me to completely surrender in each moment. It has felt like a rite of passage, deeply enlightening, there have been so many elements to it that I am yet to verbalise as a whole yet. This present stillness is very welcome and it feels good to have the space to connect with you through writing again. As a healer I am working with other people and channelling Universal energy daily, so I feel very in touch with what is going on in collective consciousness and right now I have been blown away by the level of transformations happening.

In February and March I witnessed healing crises taking place within my practise more than ever before. I will write about the process of a healing crises in detail soon but in short it is where all of the dense, negative emotions and energies which have been harbouring inside of someone for some time are released during a healing session and have to come up to the surface afterwards in the form of old ailments or flu like symptoms in order to release. They are such heavy energies that they literally come out of the physical body. When it happens it is a sure sign that huge releases are taking place and by the time the process has done its thing, which is different for everyone depending on what is needed, a sense of deep calm is felt within the entire being. It's like a very expansive cleanse of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies which usually results in a feeling of rebirth.

This period of rebirth has been happening on a huge scale Universally too. I noticed many people naturally shedding skins and setting forth on a new path more aligned to their true selves. Old patterns or wounds must be shed to allow for higher vibrations to come in. The way I can describe the past few months from my own experience is feeling like I have been reborn into my true self. Like everything led to this point. My spirit feeling more present than it has ever been. I have a feeling many can relate to this right now? A rebirth is an essential part of our growth because we must connect to our core in order to live in our true authentic power. It usually involves being taken to some very dark places in order to breakthrough into the light. To really recognise the sheer beauty of the light within ourselves, we must first go into the darkest corners. Of course our learnings are never ending. Life is literally a medicine in itself and if we look at it like that we are constantly learning, growing, transforming. So if you have been experiencing this too, give yourself a huge cuddle! Good work Earth Warriors! As we raise our vibration so does the Universe! I can honestly say one of the biggest things that supports me through life is my trust in the Universe. Knowing that even the toughest times are for your greater good helps keep a sense of inner peace within.

When Spring came along in April I noticed a huge change in energy. People suddenly felt lighter, clearer and more in tune with themselves and others. No matter what we think, we are at one with the Universe and so it is no surprise that we are effected by the wild planetary changes that have been taking place and by the seasons changing on Earth. As Spring comes along we blossom too. As the days get brighter and longer, we open ourselves up to new potential and welcome the new and brighter chapter into our lives along with new possibilities. 

As always in times like this just remember to keep your vibration high and stay true to yourself by listening to your own needs and honouring your beautiful heart as much as possible. The deeper you can love yourself, the deeper the Universe can affirm your worth.

▲ RAISE YOUR VIBRATION ▲

“The Law of Vibration states that everything in the Universe moves and vibrates - everything is vibrating at one speed or another. Nothing rests. Everything you see around you is vibrating at one frequency or another and so are you. However your frequency is different from other things in the Universe - hence it seems like you are separated from what you see around you - people, animals, plants, trees and so on. BUT you are not separated - you are in fact living in an ocean of energy - we all are. We are all connected at the lowest level - a level professor John Hagelin calls this unified field. Everything has its own vibrational frequency - the table - the car - the picture frame - the rock - even our thoughts and feelings. It is all governed by The Law of Vibration.” The Law of Vibration, One Mind Energy

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration
— Nikola Tesla

There are times when what is going on in our life and the rest of the Universe can bring us down. We can experience good days and bad days. This is a natural part of being human. However we must not forget that we are all energetic beings made up of our own unique vibrations. We are not just a physical body. Every single thing in the Universe has its own frequency and we are constantly swimming in a sea of ever changing vibrations flowing in and around us. It is no wonder we can feel so up and down sometimes but it does not have to stay this way. I am no stranger to anxiety, depression and thought patterns of low self-esteem. Through these experiences I have learnt how to help raise my vibration enough to move out of these low vibrational holds that we all can so often fall into. I want you to know that you can OWN your energy. YOU can change the way you feel. You might not be able to change the situation but you CAN always raise your vibration and you can even keep it there. When you find a good place of balance within your energy, then you will notice your life become so much more peaceful, graceful and authentic.

When we allow ourselves to be authentically free, it raises our vibration
— Alaric Hutchinson, Living Peace

So lets break this down. When your vibration is low you will most likely find it hard to manifest your desires and you may find yourself surrounded by negativity, you may be constantly tired and unhealthy, procrastinate over things, money flow may be tight, work may be unfulfilling and slow. When your vibration is high it will feel like everything you do is falling effortlessly into place, like your just in a natural rhythm of life with ease.

When you find yourself in these kind of situations have you ever thought that maybe it’s your very own vibration that is attracting it? Maybe your big smile and general positivity that you are putting out into the world each day is bringing you that same vibration back, in the form of positive people and exciting opportunities? Maybe that recurring negative thought pattern you get trapped into before you even roll out of bed each day is bringing you down so low that you are attracting that very same frequency back to you?

Our thoughts and intentions are powerful tools. Stay aware of what you are putting out, being mindful that the Universe can reflect that right back to you in your life. Making a conscious effort to maintain a high vibration will help you to stay tuned into your true purpose and enable you to listen clearly to your inner guidance leading you along the right path, attracting the right things and experiences for you along the way.

Always remember to take responsibility for your own thoughts and actions. This is the fundamental key to raising your vibration in a grounded way.

 ▲NATURAL HIGHS TO KEEP YOUR SOUL ALIVE ▲

VIBRATION RAISING TOOLS TO HELP YOU STAY IN YOUR POWER AND ENABLE YOU TO FEEL HIGH ON LIFE

NATURE

There is nothing more powerful and pure than spending time in nature. Receiving that natural energy hit from the Earth is sometimes all we need to bring us back to our centre. Those who live in busy cities need to make sure there is a healthy balance between concrete and green. It may seem impossible when you lead a busy life, but you can make that change. Sometimes all it takes is a short walk outside or in the park to shift any unsettled feelings. Place your hand on a tree, put your bare feet on the ground.

Water is so deeply soothing and healing, even standing by the sea or listening to it creates the most tranquil feeling within. Never forget the connection you have with Mother Earth, you are at one, but if you spend all your time indoors within four walls it is eventually going to take its toll on your energy. Taking time to be in Earth more really connects us back to source in the most natural way.

NATURE

MOVEMENT

Exercise is a natural high! Your body releases endorphins during exercise which trigger a positive feeling within, it can almost feel euphoric. Release stress, tension and anxiety by simply bringing exercise and movement into your life on a regular basis. You will get better sleep and increased energy levels, the list of benefits is endless! You will be surprised how quickly you will notice the improvement in your overall well-being and self-worth. If you don’t fancy yoga or the gym then you could try swapping public transport for walking. Any amount of movement is good so find something which suits you and make it a vital part of your routine.

BE KIND TO OTHERS

Have you noticed when you are kind to someone that you feel your heart filling up too? Giving good energy and feeling someone receive that good energy and feel good from it is so heart warming. It is like a knock on effect. You give with no intention of receiving but actually you do receive too. I live in London and most people know London can be a very suppressive place in regards to human interaction. You only have to ride the tube to sense the cold silence and diverted eyes between everyone to feel the realness of the suppression here. It can be quite overwhelming if you let it but the key in these situations is to be the person you want to meet. Smile at people in the street. Be kind to people who serve you in the shop. Even if you are feeling low and cannot imagine doing any of this, push out of your comfort zone and do it! Giving from a pure place is a gift to others and yourself. Smile and the world smiles with you :)

MEDITATION

Meditation is a game changer. It is a powerful tool which can shift even the lowest vibration. Start your day with a meditation to keep you balanced and centred. End your day meditating to release anything you have picked up or taken on that day. Do it whenever you like, it is always there for you to tap into. Even taking a few minutes a day to just sit, take some deep breaths in and out and just be is enough. Taking the time to meditate regularly ensures we take care of ourselves by recharging our own energy. Meditation connects us to divine source. Through it we can move away from the mind, clear energy blockages and come back to the wisdom of our heart and soul.

UNIVERSE

HIGH VIBE FOOD

Nourish your physical body by banishing the foods from your diet which you know are not right for you. You are what you eat. If there are foods you eat which make you feel sluggish, bloated or acidic then you are getting signs from your body that they are not right for you. Listen to the signs, our bodies are so clever and will tell us when something is not working for us.  Food is very personal so what works for one person, may not work for another. Find what works for you and flow with it.

The food we eat has a huge impact on our well-being so honour that and really tune into what you are consuming. If you eat sugary, processed junk food with no nutrients then you are doing a disservice to yourself as it is not going to feed your body or energy, it will only weigh it down. So think alkalising, organic vegetables and fruit. Think vibrant colour, freshness and plant power! Some high vibe foods you can eat are green vegetables like sprouts and broccoli, leafy vegetables like Kale and Arugula, fresh herbs as most contain such powerful healing properties, raw nuts and seeds, pulses, herbal teas.

Vegan is a very high vibrational way to live. If we talk in terms of energy then consuming animal, meat and dairy products essentially means you are consuming the low vibrations that come with it. Think about an animal who has been living in poor conditions, abused and tortured throughout its life to then be killed in the most inhumane way. If you chose to consume that produce then you need to be aware that you are consuming the low frequencies too. Since I went from a Vegetarian to Vegan diet 2 years ago I have noticed a significant difference in my energy. My immune system is stronger than ever, I have only been ill once since my diet change. You become more sensitive and in tune with yourself and the rest of the Universe too. Of course you need to ensure you get all of the correct nutrient and protein content if you follow a Vegan or Raw diet to ensure you make the change in a balanced and healthy way which works for your body.

Water is sacred, water is life. Make sure you honour the vital power of water within the body by ensuring you drink plenty of water each day. You will literally notice your energy drop if you are dehydrated and you will feel it rise if you keep hydrated. Drink at least 1-2 litres of good quality water per day and feel your skin, body and energy benefit. Avoid tap water because it can contain all kinds of nasties which our body does not like. I would recommend getting a good quality water filter. You can get an Alkaline filter which you can find online for as cheap as £30. I use an i9 bottle which is pretty magical as it changes the structure of water into its most purest form http://i9bottle.com/

If you want to drink alcohol and take drugs then please be aware of the negative effects which they can have on your energy. If you are using them as an escapism then it will likely only temporally suppress what you are feeling and make you feel on a much lower frequency afterwards and then you begin to get into other negative patterns like eating unhealthy and attracting further low vibrational energies into your life. 

CREATIVITY

Creativity is the life force energy which flows through each and every one of us. It is an essential part of life. If we do not nurture this energy then we can become out of touch with ourselves. When you are in your pure creative flow you are allowing your soul to feel free. Its this freedom which makes us feel pure joy. By allowing our creative juices to flow we are connecting to our inner child. When we are children all we do is play and create. Children do not live in fear about making mistakes or not having enough time to create, they see the magic in everything around them and they let it flow through them into what they do. Its this purity which most of us seem to get lost from as we move into adult life but it is always there within, you just have to connect to it again. Working with your Sacral Chakra energy will help you to open up and connect deeply with this part of yourself. Draw, sing, paint, dance, laugh, have fun and express yourself in whatever way that may be! 

BE SELFISH

In order to live authentically we have to act upon our energy. Our instincts will tell us who and what is not working for us. If you want to maintain balance then make wise choices in regards to how you spend your time and energy. Spend time with those people who bring you up rather than those who make you feel anxious or drained. Its the supportive, loving, open people who will make you feel good about yourself. If your introverted you will need to ensure you are allowing space for alone time to recharge your energy too.

Take regular time out for YOU to do the things you love and to simply just be. Self-care is essential so make sure this becomes a usual part of your lifestyle rather than a luxury every now and then. Book in for a regular message or healing session. Take a bath and add some epsom bath salts to cleanse your energy from any toxic, negative energy. Light a candle, relax, breathe and just be. 

YOU

ANIMAL LOVE

Have you ever spent some time with animals and noticed your entire mood change after? Animals are healers in themselves, raising our vibration just by being around us. They give out pure unconditional love. You can feel it strongly after spending even a couple of minutes with a dog how pure and loving they are. I signed up to Borrow My Doggy so that I can get my animal fix every now and then. We can learn a lot from them.

BE PRESENT

Being present is important as it brings you into a place of acceptance of all that is. The past is over and the future has not started yet. All we really have is now. Worrying about what has happened in the past or what may happen in the future is a total waste of energy. Instead focus on the moment and give it your all. Here are some more tips if you find this hard to manage http://www.elevenhealing.com/blog11/2016/6/15/just-for-todayi-will-not-worry

MOMENT

CRYSTALS

Crystals are literally part of Mother Earth. Therefore they hold powerful Earth energies, each one vibrating at its own unique frequency. We can wear crystals or keep them around us to help us keep our vibration high and clear. They are used in many healing practises because of the healing power and protection they bring.Citrine is great for protecting your Solar Plexus Chakra energy from taking in negativity from around you. Amethyst is great to use when meditating as it opens up your Crown Chakra and helps to deepen your spiritual connection but with protection. Lapis Lazuli is great for communication and awareness.

You can visit a nearby Crystal store to get a feel for which ones you are drawn to. Usually you will be drawn to whatever you need at that time as your energy will know which vibration is right for you. 

SLEEP

This may sound obvious but it is a fundamental one - make sure you get enough sleep. If we do not get enough sleep we are not functioning at our optimum, therefore we are not in our full personal power. Sleep deprivation can effect all areas of your well-being including physical and emotional levels, which could mean you are not feeling or acting yourself.  When we sleep we are allowing our body to heal and regenerate, it literally repairs itself during this time. My nutritionist says the best time to go to sleep would be as close to 10.00pm as possible because between 10.00pm-2.00am our body is literally in its ‘Beauty Sleep’ stages. Never underestimate the healing power of sleep.

HEALING

Whatever it may be that you are suffering from or dealing with then please know that there are many different types of natural healing therapies available which can help you and guide you on your path in one way or another. Our physical problems are usually a direct product of an emotional issue which has not been released and built up within us, eventually manifesting in our bodies physically in various ways. Energy healing is fast becoming the new medicine of our times because slowly people are realising that we need to treat holistically, ensuring every aspect is looked at rather than just the physical level.

Energy healing not only raises your vibration but goes directly to the root of an issue by allowing old pains, blockages and imbalances within your energy field to release. If you are ready to take a step to begin your own healing journey then luckily there are many options available. Reiki, Sound Healing, Shamanic Healing, Spiritual Counselling, Homeopathy, Plant Medicine. There are so many forms of healing available, it is just about finding the right one which resonates for you, including the right healer or guide to facilitate the process in a grounded and sacred space. Normally you will be drawn to the right person at the right time or you will find something comes up along your journey and you will just feel the call to try it. Trust your intuition. 

Reiki can be a powerful tool if you want to let go of stagnant energies and open up to receive new energies into your life. By aligning your Chakras and cleansing your energetic field you are allowing your bodies natural healing process to take place. When you let divine energy in it will move through all areas of your life, going way beyond the session itself, guiding you to the places where you should be, even if it isn’t in the way you would imagine. It is overall a high vibrational healing tool which allows you to get in touch with your own personal power and connects you deeply to your true self.  

Sometimes asking for help from a friend or taking the plunge to book in for therapy or healing may seem like too much if you are used to getting on with things but try your hardest to push through that barrier and know that by holding onto things you are only hurting yourself. There is strength but then there is pride. We must not mistake the two. Pride can be like poison for our energy. Let it go and then watch things flow. 

YOUR VIBE ATTRACTS YOUR TRIBE

One thing that has completely shifted my life in a positive way is being around like-minded souls. Whatever it is you are into then surround yourself with people who have the same interests as much as possible so that you can bounce off each other and inspire each other. 

I love to attend Meditation, Sound Healing and Healing related events because each time I go I am able to have heart felt conversations, away from the ego. It is really warming to be around people with the same intentions because you feel nurtured even just being in that space. Whatever your interest may be you can search on sites like www.meetup.com for local gatherings or events. 

Vibration is the core of the spirit. It is the breath of life

▽ Reflections in LA ▽ Take Time Out To Connect ▽

Last week I returned from a heavenly 2 week break in Los Angeles with my partner and a few of our closest beings who live in the West Hills side deep in the valley.. We were surrounded by a canyon, mountains and vast nature which was deeply healing and grounding in itself. LA has such a focus on spirituality, health and healing so combined with the beautiful earth it has a real magical energy to it. I feel gratitude beyond words for every single second of our break, it was a completely transitional trip for all involved as it seems we entwined in each others journeys, each bringing something different to each other whether that was an opportunity, learning or simply an inspiration to take and mould into our own lives. It was for sure a trip of great meaning in each of our lives, which came at the divine time. I have come back to London feeling ultimate clarity for my path ahead more then ever before and that feels pretty good!

It made me realise that sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to escape from your every day life to reflect and grow, even if you can’t take a couple weeks out, then just sneak in a couple of days out in the country one weekend. So often we become wrapped up in our hectic lives, jobs, relationships or others needs that we forget all about our own life and how we are actually feeling within.

Our intuition cannot be heard if we are constantly stressed or filling our mind with the same thoughts on loop. Go to a peaceful environment and switch off from your usual reality or anything that usually has a hold on your energy. Feel empowered by turning off from your emails or phone even if just for a day so that you can connect with your internal self, without distractions. Meditate, write, draw, paint, dance, run, listen to music, play an instrument, walk in nature or do ANYTHING that makes you feel free and connected to your self on a soul level. 

Even simply doing something you enjoy can be just as healing and reflective. I rented a bike for a couple of hours on Venice Beach and had the most beautiful ride, I looked at the sun setting beside me and my partner as we cycled all along the epic beach front, I felt the ocean air on my face and the warmth of the sun surround me, I felt so connected to our earth and my heart felt full, it was a really special moment and all I could do to express the pure freedom and love that I felt within was to sing. I often sing when I am happy, its such a powerful creative expression and it really lets your heart and soul speak! I finished the bike ride feeling so FREE and most of all in touch with my creative and joyful self, my inner child, the part of us that many of us so often push down in our adult lives.

If you feel the call to have some time out then take notes of anything that comes up for you along the way and most of all tune into your heart and honour what it is telling you. When you come out of your usual surroundings it naturally brings up your truths as you are not being distracted. It might be something small which comes up for you like a reminder to take more time for yourself or to get back into that hobby you used to love or it could be something life changing like moving to somewhere you will be happier or taking a 'risk' in order to have the career of your dreams. Whatever it is, don’t be afraid to action it or overcome it, be bold, brave and in your heart and the rest will follow in whichever way that may be. Listening to your heart and taking a leap of faith is one of the most powerful actions you can do in your life!

I also have to mention how impactul healing sessions and readings can be in any challenging, uncertain or even positive times when you just need some extra clarification or an energy boost to help you along the way. During my trip I done healing work and tarot readings for others but I also made sure I received so that I had a balance. I booked in with a very beautiful energy healer I know who lives in Hollywood and his work only added to the realisations I had been experiencing and of course the session left me feeling deeply centered and calm. I also booked in with a palm reader who clarified everything I needed to hear as if it was one final push of reassurance from the Universe. I realised that every single meeting, healing or reading that took place whether on the giving or receiving end was absolutely divine timing and I have no doubt that I was guided to each one. Sometimes we need to be in those exact places at the 'perfect' time to hear the words we already know deep inside or to release those blockages that are weighing us down so that we can move forward! Sometimes we need that extra push and that clarification from something or someone outside of ourselves and sometimes we need it over and over again until we finally get it or believe it. I am so grateful to those beings who provided me with that extra support, guidance and healing and I am so thankful to be of healing service to others ✩ 

Full Moon Ritual

Full Moon Ritual

For each New Moon and Full Moon I like to do a little ritual in my home or in nature. It is a very powerful way to manifest what you want to bring into your life and what you want to let go of, and so far it has not let me down, even if the things I have been putting out have come back to me immersed within a test or challenge in order to get them, thats all part of the process! I usually chose to do the rituals with my partner, if you are in a relationship it is a special thing to do together and you could even focus on your relationship rather than your own individual needs. However, you can do it alone or with friends too, whatever you feel comfortable with! I have always wanted to start a Women's Moon Circle at some point so femmes can come together! 

If you feel the call to do your own ceremony then see my suggested guidelines below...

  • Set up a lovely spot to sit comfortably in, preferably where you can see the Moon in all its beauty, seeing her shine down on you makes the experience extra magical
  • Set up an alter in front of you which has all of your most special things on, those things which you hold close to your heart and soul. For example, I will always have my crystals, candles, angel cards, tarot cards, Sage and Palo Santo. Sometimes I will have a photo of loved ones in spirit too 
  • Fill a big bowl or vase with water and place this in front of you or on your alter
  • Grab some paper and a pen and place next to you
  • I always light an incense stick and burn sage in each corner of the room to bless and protect the sacred space
  • Once you are all set up, begin the ritual by lighting a candle on your alter. If there are others in the ceremony it will be nice for them to have their own candle to light too
  • Ask that your guides, any loved ones in spirit, arch angels or any beings you wish to invite to come in and protect the sacred space whilst you perform your ritual
  • Start by spending a few minutes meditating, breathing deeply, getting in tune with yourself and in the calm zone
  • Reflect on the past couple of weeks. Think about what experiences you have had, what has come up which has been difficult to deal with, have you held back in your life at all, what things do you want to release going forward? What is your intention for this new phase? Once you are clear then write your intention down on the paper
  • You can now read your intention out aloud or in your head and then say 'I now let this go' or whatever else comes to you, there are no rules :)
  • Burn the paper into the water, watch as all that no longer serves you burns way and dissolves into the fire. (Be very careful at this point to be safe, I always use a huge vase of water and only burn the paper for a few seconds then put into the water)
  • Now that you have made space in your life for things you want you can vision/meditate on what you want to bring in and achieve in this new phase. Manifest. Anything is possible. Ensure you do it with love and good intention though
  • Once you are finished then blow out your candle and give gratitude and prayers to the Moon and Mother Earth and whoever else comes to mind. Maybe you know someone who is having a difficult time? Send them love and healing thoughts and energy <3 

Full Moon in Aquarius....Sensitive Souls Take Care Of Yourself

To say I have felt the shifts of this August Full Moon (Thursday 18th August) would be a huge understatement! It has come to my attention that I am not alone, many other sensitive souls, in particular women, have been experiencing the intensity for the past couple of weeks, but most potently the past few days leading up to today. I gave energy healing at Cherub and Tim Wheater's Sound Activation on Tuesday evening in the most magnificent church in South Kensington and there were so many emotional releases and intense experiences for many involved, it was even more clear to see then how much of an effect this phase has had on so many. It has been an emotional roller coaster, past memories and thought patterns coming up to the surface big style and a sense of loneliness. Yet today is the day of the Full Moon at last and I have woken up with a real sense of calm and an urge to send love out to everybody, if anyone else reading this has been feeling out of sorts the past week or so then know you are not alone!!!

If you are a sensitive being and you often feel the effects of the moon and planetary shifts then it is very important to care for yourself in these times. Take lots of time to chill out and be in your own energy or with people who you feel comfortable with, stay away from anything that can bring you down to a low vibration, connect with nature as much as possible to keep you grounded, write down your feelings and things that come up so you can stay present and aware of the emotion passing through you, rather than being totally wrapped up in it. Stay on top of it and see the root of it, that way it passes through a lot quicker. Embrace this process with a big open heart and flow with it, don't fight it, it is actually helping us release and come to terms with parts of ourselves and our life so we can grow and evolve. 

Many people are not aware of the strong connection we have with the moon from down here on earth! My menstrual cycle syncs with the Full Moon, so today I woke up releasing with her. This is the norm for me now, since early last year when I realised I had begun syncing with the Moon. Some months I would even have 2 cycles, with the New Moon and Full Moon. Then by the end of summer it seemed to decide to stay with the Full Moon and that is how it has been ever since, with the exception of a couple of months, it has been on the exact day or day before of each Full Moon. All of us femmes know how intense a menstrual cycle is regardless of other things in life going on, so when its teamed with a Full Moon it is safe to say its super intense in any sense, but I wouldn't have it any other way, to know I am in natural rhythm with the universe feels how it should be! Since the old day's it was said that those who bleed with the Full Moon are the medicine women, healers and mystics and those who bleed with the New Moon are the mothers, nurtures and most fertile.

If you want to read more about how us humans sync with the Moon and all about the Moon in general then check out my blog which I wrote back in February for another super powerful one which I experienced….

So what is actually going on this Full Moon?

As always, Mystic Mama gives great insight and advice into what is fully going down on an astrology level! This extract spoke volumes to me..

“Occurring a day before the next eclipse season begins (19th August – 23rd September), this Full Moon is an ‘almost-but-not-quite’ lunar eclipse, giving it greater influence and a stronger ‘edge’ against which to hone our awareness… In Aquarius, it illuminates mental habits and unconscious tendencies which keep us stuck in rigid patterns of thought, belief and behaviour.
If we’ve been wondering why we can’t seem to get it together and do what’s needed to make that long overdue change, it reveals how we keep ourselves in chains, blinkered to truths just outside our awareness and mired in self-sabotage.
It may be a rude awakening, especially if the stark lunar light reveals it is we who have painted ourselves into a corner, not external circumstances conspiring against us.
Whilst such insights are a bitter pill to swallow, this is just the first stage: a nudge from the universe to embrace our past selves, not chastise them.
Self-blame will get us nowhere, so whatever comes to light around the time of this Full Moon must be met by a gentle and loving heart, not a hardened and critical one.
This Moon may come with loneliness, a sense of being misunderstood. If we can resist taking things too personallyit will go a long way to not letting these feelings rule the day and create mountains out of molehills!
There’s a fair bit of tension around and many will be feeling it, so cutting each other (and ourselves) some serious slack is good advice!"

Sound Healing, South Kensington

I would strongly recommend Cherub and Tim's Sound Activation events for anyone based in or around London. The next one is on the New Moon 1st September. All you have to do is lie back, close your eyes and receive the deep, powerful healing from the high frequency sounds and vibrations. They use gongs, flutes, shamanic voice, chimes and many more magical instruments which create an immersive and powerful space for healing and releases. During the event I go around and give energy healing to everybody along with 2 lovely healers. If you are interested in the events you can ask me or follow the lovely beings here for updateshttps://www.facebook.com/timandcherub

I have written Full Moon Ritual guidelines here if you want to do something in honour of this powerful Moon... http://www.elevenhealing.com/blog/2016/8/18/full-moon-ritual

The Full Moon And Her Power

As I sat there on my bed staring at my laptop screen pondering about what I was going to write about in my latest blog last night, I had so much going round in my mind which I wanted to share in the hope to help, enlighten or inspire others, but nothing felt right.. I believe writing should come from the heart so it flows and is from a place of truth, as then the reader can usually feel that in their heart and soul too, so I never want to force writing. So anyway, as I sat there pondering, suddenly my eyes were diverted to the window ahead of me and there I saw my inspiration instantly - an almost full moon stared back at me - aligned perfectly within the small slot of window showing at that perfect synchronistic moment, I smiled to myself and said thank you to the universe for showing me. 

Looking up at the moon it seemed divine timing that I write about it the more i looked into it....this Full Moon is in my star sign VIRGO and it falls on 22nd of February - 22 has always been my favourite number since I was little and throughout the past couple of years 22 has been a big part of my journey, popping up everywhere and giving me vital signs and nudges, I am a big believer in numerology! Most of all it seems relevant because I have been feeling the effects of this Full Moon in full force the past week as we lead up to today so I have lots of inspiration for this subject..all in all, it just feels right so I will go with it :)

Over recent years I have developed a strong love for the moon and have felt very connected to her. I am no expert in the moon but it simply fascinates me with its beauty and power and the way it has effected me over the years has been overwhelming at times, but also knowing that the moon energies are the catalyst for these emotional and behavioural changes always gives me a sense of contentment and trust..trust that it is all necessary and to just surrender to it!

The idea that the moon phases can affect every living thing on our beautiful planet goes way way back.. and if you think about it, most people are aware that the moon effects the tides; which are created because the earth and the moon are attracted to each other like magnets, and so the moon pulls at the earth but the earth is able to hold onto everything except from the water… so it makes perfect sense that us humans are affected by the moon too because we are made up of approx 60% water!

The word 'Lunatic' is actually derived from the word 'Lunar' which is the latin word for 'Moon'! Even long ago it was believed that the phases of the moon effected peoples minds and behaviours, especially people with vulnerable or sensitive minds apparently. Its funny because I always remember my mum telling me that the residents in the nursing home she managed often acted differently when it was a Full Moon, she would say they would be unable to sleep and were very unsettled. When researching I even found there was an announcement from Senior Officers of Brighton Police back in 2007 where they explained they were planning to get more officers in to help with trouble which they felt was linked to the lunar cycle; they had carried out their own research which showed evidence of a clear connection between violent incidents and full moons! It really can bring things which we may have been pushing to the back, right up to the surface, whether we like it or not! This is why I want to try and spread some awareness of the Full Moon, it is beneficial to have the moon phases noted in your calendar so you can be aware of the energies and how they may influence your emotions, impulses and feelings during certain times of the month.

Of course there are many phases of the moon, but today I want to focus mainly on the Full Moon. There are many books out there which can give real insight into the ways in which you can go with the flow of the moon cycle, helping you get into the natural rhythm of the ever changing energies it brings. This is something I am beginning to research into only now, it feels the right time now I am at a grounded point of my life. The moon energies and shifts can leave us feeling frustrated, low and confused at times if we do not understand it, so to flow with the cycles and not fight it can only be beneficial! I guess it is just tuning into mother nature on another level too, a deep level because this is all about our emotional inner self. The relationship between water and emotion is well known throughout spirituality too so I guess this is something else which supports this Moon/Water/Emotions connection theory. 

The Full Moon is the phase where the lunar powers are at their maximum, so we may feel more in tune with our instincts and have more intense emotions during this time, it is also said that the spiritual world is at its closest during this time too. I have found that the week running up to a Full Moon is usually a strong contrast in feelings for me. For example, I generally have a calm energy, but I notice I begin to feel a little irrational and emotional about a week before the Full Moon and I am faced with what seems like every aspect of my shadow-self, you know, the dark bits which we all have in different ways, collected from childhood and all other experiences from along the journey that is life. So basically all of my deepest and darkest thoughts, fears, low vibrational emotions and weaknesses, yep, all of that dark stuff seems to come up at some point whether for a split second or for a day or a week - the moon has her way of bringing the unconscious into consciousness.

However, after being on a self-healing journey of transformation and self-discovery for some years now, I am totally aware of my shadow-self and it is something I am constantly working through, one bit at a time, getting deeper and deeper and releasing more at each step of the way, so it no longer alarms me when it all comes up during these times and I actually welcome it, I am grateful for it as it reminds me what work I have to do on myself and what parts of me I need to learn to love and accept, but also of how far I have come too, recognising the parts of me that have been healed. So the contrast I spoke of before is because although I seem to notice this darkness springing up more intensely during this phase, it is totally contrasted with the most incredible feeling of completeness.... I say this because I notice such a shift in energies when doing my healing work running up to the Full Moon. Last week for example, a lot of my clients who came to see me said that the healing energy they experienced during the session was the strongest they had felt in an energy healing before, and I felt this from my side too, it channelled through me with such power and I really felt like an open vessel. Every healing session felt like an energy operation where I was able to go deep into the chakras and energy body with my hands, releasing old pain bodies and working through imbalances bringing the energies back into alignment..even just as a channel for these healing energies I felt so in tune with every second of the healing, and I really feel like the moon had shifted something to make room for deeper and further healing work for those who come into this healing space! So along with the darkness which she can bring up in this full phase, she can also bring magical and mystical experiences too, its all about the balance! 

I had some really interesting experiences with the moon last year in regards to my menstrual cycle - I noticed last spring that my menstrual cycle began on the same day as the Full Moon, I had not noticed it before so I noted it down each month thereafter and to my surprise it came on the exact day or the day after each Full Moon. When I looked into this to see what I could find online, I was actually pleasantly surprised to find lots of information about the effects the moon has on our menstrual cycles. I found research everywhere to suggest women who bleed with the full moon are the medicine women, healers and the mystics and this is called the Red Moon cycle. A woman of the Red Moon cycle is said to bring her healing and magic into the world and focus her energies on empowering and enlightening others rather than giving birth to new life, she delves deep into the darkest corners of herself to heal, in order to then focus her energies on the rest of the world. Then the women who bleed with the New Moon and ovulate during the Full Moon follow the White Moon cycle. It is known that the earth herself is most fertile in the light on the Full Moon and research supports this as there are many studies showing that when seeds are planted during a Full Moon, the crops are the biggest, just the same as a women who is ovulating during a Full Moon will be at her most fertile! A women of the White Moon cycle is known as the mother, the nurturer.  

I also read that our cycle can change when our life circumstances change, and this soon became apparent to me - In April last year I bled with the full moon on 4th April, as usual, but then around 1 week later on 11th April I had my first Kambo ceremony with one of my closest friends Shardai (Shardai holds a beautiful, healing space for her powerful Kambo ceremonies) I would love to talk about that experience another time as it changed my life, but one thing that did happen after the ceremony was my menstrual cycle changed! A few days after the Kambo ceremony it was a New Moon on 18th April and I was surprised to begin bleeding again when I woke up that day, given that I already had my period a couple of weeks before with the Full Moon. I put it down to the Kambo ceremony as I knew how much had shifted and purged out of my energy and body during the ceremony, so it did not surprise me too much if things were releasing in the physical sense too. However, the next month I did not bleed with the full moon as usual, I figured my cycle must have actually changed to go with the New Moon and I was right as on 18th May I began my cycle with the New Moon! I actually felt a different to when in the White Moon cycle rather than the Red Moon cycle, I felt more energised and flowing and I noticed my skin and body felt different, I liked it actually, I guess for whatever reason I was ready to be in that cycle for that time and I stayed with it until a couple of months later when I moved to Ibiza for the summer…..I arrived in Ibiza in July and I had my cycle with July's New Moon as expected, but then at the end of the month on 31st July I bled again with the Full Moon! So this meant I had now had 2 months that year that I had bled with both moons in the same month!

I became so intrigued by this that I went to see a well known homeopathic doctor on the island called Derek, he was wonderful and I had the most amazing healing session with him which I will be eternally grateful for, but he explained I was just connecting with the constellations, there was nothing to worry about and nothing more than that! I felt really connected to the earth after that reassurance and I loved to know my body was in tune with the moon and her flows! After that shift back to the Full Moon at the end of July though I ended up staying in that cycle (Red Moon cycle) and I have been ever since, although when I moved back to London I moved away from being on the exact day or day after a Full Moon so I need to find out which moon phase I am falling in now! I think it is great to be aware of your cycle, so if you have not done so already then have a little think about which cycle you follow and if it changes or if you remember when it has changed, note things down over the next few months as you tune into it, its so interesting! GO DIVINE FEMININE ENERGIES!!!!! Whichever cycle you follow, each one is equally as powerful in its individual ways and I believe we will all experience both along the way depending on our situations and circumstances in life at the time (I have to add that I have not been on any contraceptive pills or taken any unnatural or hormonal altering contraceptive methods for over 3 years or so now, so I know that has helped me to be able to just get in sync with nature without anything unnatural altering my cycle)

I would love to hear about your Moon connection tales, please write on the comment section below if you want to share, I think it is really interesting and empowering to be able to share this kind of things with each other as fellow women!!!

Myself and a close friend will be creating a sacred space to hold New Moon and Full Moon circles in Dalston, London soon, I will post all of the details up on my page once they are confirmed. 

The Science Behind Energy Healing..

I am a subjective person, so if i feel something then that is that, its real to me! However, I realise that not everybody is this way; a lot of people like to know the science and facts behind things, and I respect that :) If you are interested in scientific research into energy healing and the powerful healing effect it can have emotionally and physically, then listen to the following 1 hour podcast and please share with anyone who may be interested in energy healing but feels skeptical and would like to hear some scientific research into it.... http://www.skeptiko.com/252-bernadette-doran-on-energy-healing/

"I have tons of research on this, is the relationship of thoughts and emotions to physical disease. And pretty much everybody, even in the straight, strictly western medical community, now understands and believes that at least 80% or 90%, maybe more, of physical diseases have an underlying emotional component."
