Where are you heading?

Who wrote the script to your life? Are you the one consciously choosing how to live your life and where you are heading by consciously changing the script every day or are you following someone else’s story? Are you consciously choosing where you want to go next or are you running on autopilot?

We are all run by the stories we tell ourselves, the pictures we carry around in our spaces and the programming we have accepted as our truth. Those may be happy and heroic stories or stories of sadness and victimhood. A happy story lives in the present moment while the victim story wants to predict future. If a story doesn’t feel good and doesn’t lead to joy, then it may be time to let go of that story. You have that freedom.

Often when pain comes up, people want a fortune-teller to make predictions about their future and have a guru hand them a clearly defined map for what comes next. The thing is, however, that the future is not predetermined. There is no set destiny that dictates where you are supposed to be heading and what you should be doing. There is no ‘should’ or ‘have to’ – those are simply limitations that come from expectations and demands from others.

You as a spiritual being chose to lower your vibration and to incarnate into this body in this particular time-frame in order to experience certain things here on the physical plane. You have a goal and a purpose for the lifetime. However, there is no set way in which to reach this goal – you get to choose how you want to play. You have an energy that is entirely unique only to you and only you can choose how you want to experience being in a body. Your body is your mock-up and only you have the power to choose where you want to go with it.

We ourselves get to choose what is around the corner for us. We can’t choose for others, but we can choose for ourselves.

Generally, what sets the tone for where you are heading is the energy in your space. It’s the choices you are making right now, the programming from others that you have accepted as truth, the images you visualize daily, the thoughts you think and the words you speak right now. It all really depends on what you bring your attention to, focus on and breath life into and that can all be changed through energywork, meditation and visualization.

The only way to begin to heal the stories that you tell is to step into full ownership of where you are right now. Only from this space of spiritual accountability can you truly begin to see and own what is yours and release what is not yours.

Speaking your own truth leads you to your joy

When you take the time to connect with your own truth in each moment and then speak your mind gently and with assertiveness you are being loving. Honesty is a deeply loving act. While on the other hand holding back your truth and your honest words is a way of holding back your love both for yourself as well as the others.

Sometimes the truth that needs to be spoken in the moment may not be what those around or even you yourself may want to hear as it may challenge the integrity of everyone, some changes may need to be made, but it will be a tremendous healing for all. Most of all though, truth, when spoken gently with love and assertiveness will really set you free and will be a healing for all.

If you are the type of person that loathes conflict and wants to hide his head in the sand at the first sign of trouble then it may be hard for you to stand up for yourself, speak your mind and consequently say no to others. You may be into the pattern of pleasing others and always saying what they want to hear in fear of disapproval. If so, then you are drowning out the voice of your intuition and inner knowing over the noise of other people’s expectations and demands. This is soul-destroying and invalidating for your spirit and probably also very painful for you.

This kind of distance between the real you and the you that you are in the world is rooted in some sort of a childhood trauma where you were programmed by those around you to think and believe that you didn’t matter, that you were small and undeserving of love. So because of these beliefs it can be hard for you to truly be yourself and to receive the love that you so desperately need, because you believe that you don’t really deserve it. Now is time to kick out those faulty old beliefs and claim your true worth as the son or daughter of the Creator for whom nothing is impossible. God is pure compassion and has created plenty of love and resources for all so that no one’s needs ever really go without fulfilment.

Sometimes speaking your truth can be intimidating, but it is necessary for clarity, direction and healing for all. Realise that you may be holding back tremendous soul wisdom that wants to express through you by not sharing your words. You can rest assured that if you keep holding back your words and your authenticity situations will keep presenting themselves that will keep pushing your ability to speak up and express yourself in the moment.

If you feel a sense of tightness or anxiety on your neck it means there are words that need to be expressed but you’ve held them back for one reason or another. Often the reason is fearing disapproval and being rejected and abandoned by others that don’t want to hear the truth. The truth is however if those around will abandon you for speaking up then those may not be the people you want to be hanging around with anyways. It’s a win-win for all. Most importantly, at least speak that truth to yourself first, then it will be easier to express yourself to others.

If your intention is to be loving and kind and you come from that place within you when you speak, then you will naturally start to repel those with unloving focuses and intentions. It’s not something you did wrong it’s just that the Universe is ordering events and people around you to suit your true self and your true needs in order to bring you your highest fulfilment and joy. It all starts with clarifying your intentions for yourself and then expressing that either in conversation with your guardian angels, your guides or the Supreme Being. Rest assured that you are being heard and infinitely loved at all times.

Becoming the total embodiment of your true self

Today may seem like any other day, but in reality it is a very special day indeed. Numerologically speaking today’s date carries with it the 9/9/9 vibration and holds within it immense power for healing, closure and manifestation.

This whole year of 2016 I’ve been watching with curiosity, wonder and amazement how the current year number 9 has been playing itself out. The 999 sequence has literally popped up everywhere and carries with it a lot of meaning. You can easily find out the meaning of the triple 9 by googling it, but I would encourage you to notice what this number sequence means for you personally – you can do that by just paying attention to what the events, situations, lessons and blessings are for you right now.

The number 9 is generally known to represent the Universal spiritual laws, a higher perspective, influence, non-conformity, leading life as a positive example for others, altruism, humanitarianism, philanthropy, healing, teaching, guidance, closure and endings.

Having an abundance of 9 energy in one date signifies the meaning of the number 9 being magnified, which means that it is especially important to pay attention to its meaning. Looking closely, this is truly a time of endings, of doing kind deeds for the humanity as a whole and getting down to business as far as true life purpose is concerned. It’s a good time to take a look at what you are done with and where you want to go next. Of course it can also mean completions in a karmic sense so it’s not always an easy ride – it depends on where you have been! If there is something karmic for you to look at then you may be triggered today. And that is a good thing.

In fact, the whole year of 2016 has been building up to these three dates: September 9, 18 and 27. They all hold the 9/9/9 vibration. If you look closely at the events throughout this year you can see clearly that indeed some sort of collective karmic themes have been explored. Regardless of the drama that has ensued, the most important thing is that people are awakening to their true life purpose.

From a higher perspective the 9/9/9 date signifies the fulfillment of the masculine and the feminine – the union of shiva and shakti as they are known in Hinduism. It’s a good time to take a close look at how you embody both the feminine and the masculine qualities within yourself and where you could possibly embrace more of either one or the other thus becoming more complete and whole within yourself.

Something to be aware of is that the dark masculine can be a fearsome, destructive and bloodthirsty warrior while the dark feminine can be an evil witch. We all carry the elements of both within ourselves. If you don’t accept, love and own the uncomfortable stuff it will simply get pushed into the unconscious and continue to seek expression in an unconscious way, which means it will then simply control your life from behind the scenes. By having something come up for you you will be in a position to examine it in the light of day rather than have it continue controlling your life from the unconscious.

As you own your power, sit in ownership of your true self and speak your truth, the relationships around you will inevitably change. Here’s something to bare in mind: you deserve love and respect and it’s absolutely safe to let go of relationships that do not honor and respect who you really are. If someone rejects you for who you are when you are coming from a pure and authentic place within yourself then they are in fact rejecting themselves. Leave them with their own processes, you can’t change other people’s reactions or choices. It is for them to live with. Be complete within yourself and take good care of yourself by choosing relationships and friendships that honor you. This is to say: trust the wise intuitive counsel of your body.

As a sensitive and aware being you might have been teased from an early age about your sensitivity or bullied or intimidated because you were somehow different. You might still be carrying these wounds around with you in your energy field or these old pictures that say you are somehow not good enough or somehow lacking something. It is loving toward yourself to avoid harsh relationships or situations and to steer toward simplicity. You may need lots of time today to go within and to just be with yourself and to avoid harsh situation. Enjoy and cherish your alone time.

The truth is that you have your own unique inadequacies or shortcomings and those are there for a reason. You came into this lifetime with a set of characteristics and your essence set up those to create conditions for something specific that it wanted to experience. For example, disability might mean less mobility, but it could also open up possibility for you to learn to ask for help rather than attempting to do everything by yourself. A very important theme to look at today is that of letting go of any and all judgements towards yourself.

So today situations may be coming up that may be encouraging you to stand up for yourself and walk in your truth. Maybe you are being pushed energetically and tested for how well you are established in your centre. Maybe you are tested for your ability to soften and be kind. The tendencies are all up now and up for review so you can take a really good look at where you can still grow and expand. Enjoy!

Some of the points to consider today:

  1. What/who am I done with and ready to let go of?
  2. What do I need to integrate more of: masculine or feminine?
  3. Can I speak my truth without holding back?
  4. Can I be fully present and authentic with the people in my life?
  5. Am I living my own dream or someone else’s?
  6. Do I trust myself?
  7. Am I being loving and kind towards myself?
  8. Can I embrace my shadow without trying to fix it?
  9. Am I being on my path?

Healing from the inside out

When you comes across pain in others either on a global scale or on a personal level, you get lit up. It is perfectly natural and it is an opportunity for you to learn something new about yourself.

The immediate knee-jerk response tends to be to want to heal, help and give advice or otherwise influence the event that you have absolutely no control over. When you are in that ‘knee-jerk response’ space you can be sure that you are matching to the drama you witnessed. Other people’s pain is very real and you need tools and awareness to sort out what belongs to you and what doesn’t.

The thing is, if you really want to help ‘heal the world’, please be aware that ‘the world’ is you. Your perceptions of the outside world and what you experience as upsetting events outside of you are reflective of something going on within you. The outer world is a mirror of the inner you. Begin healing the world by healing yourself first.

The keyword here is ‘control’. As a spiritual being in a physical body, you only ever really get to have control over your own thoughts, emotions, reactions, behaviour and energy. In other words, you only have control over your own space. You can inspire change and healing in others, but that cannot be achieved through fighting or resisting others and what they are putting out there. You only create change by being the change you want to see.

The first real step towards healing is to create space to take a good close look at what comes up for you. Try not to talk or communicate excessively when lit up as you will simply be reinforcing the pain. This is the problem the planet is facing currently – too many people communicating from a growth space instead of waiting for clarity. Have a look if what is coming up is new or some old programming. What you are experiencing isn’t something to figure out, but simply to be aware of. Once you have an awareness of what has come up for you you will be in a position to ‘work it’. Your awareness of and presence with the pain that you experience is what begins to transform it.

The truth is that you are psychic and can act on what you see, feel, experience. There are many tools that can be used. For example, visually grounding your body into the centre of the planet from the base of your spine is an immediate healing. You may want to try grounding in a meditation to give yourself some space to release any excess energy that you may have picked up and create some space for your own energy and needs. There are many other wonderful tools that you can learn in the meditation class.

Then, when you approach ‘the world’ in this way your words and actions will be guided from a clear and healed space. You will be a much-needed healing to others without as much as lifting a finger. You vibrationally set the example. No struggle or effort required.

“Go back and take care of yourself. Your body needs you. Your feelings need you. Your perceptions need you. Your suffering needs you to acknowledge it. Go home and be there for all these things.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Intuitive tools 101: your intuition

The beginning meditation class is the space for you to sit in spiritual validation. This psychic kindergarten space is completely free from judgement, expectation or demands and allows you to playfully connect with and trust your own answers.

The source of your own answers is your spirit and your spirit itself is of course 100% psychic already and does not need any training or development to become more psychic. Indeed, intuition and psychic abilities are entirely natural and already came with the package for you. The point of meditation in a permissive and validating environment, however, is to learn to validate and trust the communication from your spirit through your bodily sensations, feelings, emotions, images, pictures, visions or the words or sounds you hear in your inner ear. There is really nothing woo-woo about it. Being intuitive is just a matter of quieting the noise within and around you, so that you can hear, see and sense your soul’s communication.

For the sensitive and empathic ones among us the outer world can sometimes seem like a harsh place. There are many heavy energies such as fear, pain, competition, ego battles and whacks to contend with. And this is the reason why people would instinctively rather turn off their psychic abilities through activities such as denial, invalidation, over-analysis, explaining oneself to everyone, being a people pleaser, drinking coffee, drinking alcohol or taking drugs. The sensitivity and sensations can get overwhelming if we don’t know how to deal with the noise. However, turning off your intuition is counter-productive since by doing so you are also turning off a source of healing and answers.

In the beginning psychic meditation class the psychic tool of grounding is taught that helps you to take good care of your energy and to allow yourself to begin feel safe enough in your body to turn on your natural abilities again. With grounding you release any energy that is not yours and connect with your own energy instead. Your own energy clearly feels comfortable and safe for you and is your body’s preferred fuel.

The psychic meditation classes are a sanctuary space. The Hello EssenceJoy Healing Centre is founded on the recognition that you are a spiritual being and you have your own truth, your own information. This sanctuary space opens up the opportunities for you to recognise yourself as a spiritual being and for you to receive validation from within.

Your intuition grows tremendously each time you validate your spirit and your own perceptions rather than rely on outer validation. For example, in the meditation classes and in the intuitive training program students can get different answers and see different colours when looking at the same thing. However, just because students see a different colour in a readee’s Crown chakra doesn’t mean that one is right and the other is wrong. Everyone has their own unique perceptions and each is valid in their own way. There is no right or wrong, so throw that judgement out straight away.

The more you meditate and develop trust in and awareness of your intuition, the more you begin to notice the communication from your spirit and the louder it gets. It can be a very handy and practical tool in making everyday life decisions. Here’s the thing with intuition: the more repetitive an emotion, sensation or an image gets – the more important it becomes for you to pay attention to whatever the message is.

Intuition can show up in many different ways. You may get a hunch, a gut feeling, hear a phrase in your mind or any other way that it could show up in. That is your intuition turned on and working for you – no matter how you experience it. Indeed, there are different ways of experiencing intuition, but in our meditations we bring ourselves to a visual level. Visualization is the most accurate means of communicating with spirit.

What could be better, more healing or inspiring than having your own clear communication with spirit, having your own intuition turned on and fined-tuned?

Most importantly, In our meditations you learn to listen to your intuition without any judgement or expectation. The energies of judgement and expectation come from the competitive everyday life world and have to do with ‘getting it right’. When it comes to your intuition, there is nothing to ‘get right’, your intuition is yours and does not need to be explained or defended to anyone. It just needs to be validated by you. Join the meditation class to start to become friends with and listen to your intuition with 100% neutrality straight away.

A healing gives a hello to your wholeness

The whole purpose of a healing is to restore the wholeness and wellness that already exists within you. Your body and spirit have much more self-healing capacity than you may realize.

The definition of wellness is quite frankly ‘being well’. It is the harmonic relationship that exists when your chakras spin clearly without obstructions and when there’s an optimal communication between your natural body and your spiritual body. You come to a harmonic through a healing. Imagine your body like a musical instrument – you too sometimes need a tune up.

Wellness like everything else is a vibration and can easily be accessed on an energy level through visualization. The only question is: can you have it?

You might want wellness, but if a large portion of your healing energy is focused outside of yourself healing everyone else and handling issues that have nothing to do with you then don’t be surprised if very little of that energy actually remains for you to deal with your own issues and questions. You have to give to yourself first so you can then give to others.

When you are manifesting health issues on the physical level you can be sure that those began on an energy level and can be accessed and healed clairvoyantly. It is your spirit that does the healing work, but in a healing session the healer’s purpose is to facilitate that awareness and help you access that healing energy. This works through validation – when you spirit receives validation it immediately begins to access its greater potential.

Often when you need a healing and regardless of how out of whack you may feel, there is typically only one or just a few pictures that have been blocking your natural flow. Clearing that one single picture gets your energy moving and you experiencing your natural wellness again. A healing removes the troublesome picture and restores wholeness of body, emotions, mind and spirit.

An intuitive healing is different from an intuitive reading in that in a healing we put less attention on what we are letting go of and more attention on what is coming in, that is, the next step. We do not dwell on the energy that is moving out, which are the old stories, pain and invalidation. Therefore, in a healing often less communication is offered, so as to allow for the change to happen rather than holding on to the old pictures.

You can give yourself a healing by visualizing yourself in wellness. For example, instead of worrying about something – visualize the outcome you want. Using visualization is a way to access your spirit’s creative ability and is the quickest way to create change and healing. And the best part about this is that this stuff actually works!

If you would like to learn to visualize more clearly and get to know your unique energy system, why don’t you join our meditation class and start healing yourself straight away!

Are you listening to your body?

Life isn’t all about hard work, getting tasks done and meeting deadlines. Regular gentle downtime is needed to recover your energy levels and to nurture your body.

Here’s the thing, before you can really give to others, before you can truly show up 100% – you have to be able to also give to yourself. You have to feel deserving enough of your own kindness before you can truly give it to others. If you want wellness you have to put yourself more to centre of that giving and receiving spectrum. Balance opens the pathway for abundance to flow in.

Constantly giving of yourself, working hard and getting stuff done, without taking proper time to consider your body and your own needs you will end up depleted, worn out and with nothing left to give. This route might even take you to illness, because you have excluded your well-being from the picture.

On the other hand, if you take time to consider your own needs and fulfil those needs without regularly putting them on the bottom of your to-do-list, you will have more energy and vitality to move through the day with.

To begin with, self-appreciation is an energy to say hello to when considering giving to yourself. Think about how can you appreciate yourself more and be really kind to yourself right now? If people around you aren’t showing up for you or aren’t giving you the kindness you feel that you may need – you have to be that ‘people’ for yourself. By giving to yourself what you need you immediately balance out your inner masculine and feminine energies. Rather than waiting for someone else to come along and fulfil your needs, you can do it yourself. You can be your own hero.

Another point to consider is: who are you really creating for? Who do those mock-ups and dreams of yours actually belong to? Is the dream you are working hard for truly what you really want? Can you let yourself dream a brand new dream that you actually like and want to participate in wholeheartedly? Are you still trying to please one of your parents by holding down a job that you don’t even like?

To begin to create for yourself you have to take a very honest and close look at if you can actually have those things you say you want. Can you have what you say it is that you want?

The magic of creating those things for yourself that you say you want begins with feeling good about yourself. And feeling good about yourself and feeling loved starts with you, yourself. It’s not something you get from outside of you or the others around you. You have to see yourself as worthy and deserving first, compliment yourself, and then the Universe will send you people who will validate that choice and will compliment you even more. On the other hand, if you are in judgement about yourself – you will meet plenty of people who will be in judgement about you, as well. You get to choose which way you want to go. You get to set the energy. Start by deciding right now that you are eternally lovable and shower yourself with kind compliments. You may even visualize that right now.

So go ahead and ask yourself this right now: what is it that your body, your senses, your feelings and your spirit are yearning for right now? See it! Feel it! Sense it! Know it! And then go ahead and give that to yourself. Right now. No, don’t wait until tomorrow – do it now!

While you are pondering over this worthwhile question, here’s a handy list to consider …

  • Nurturing little daytime naps
  • Reading a good book
  • Having raw cacao-based hot chocolate
  • Eating organic food – your body will be very grateful for this
  • Taking some time off from busy work-life
  • A walk through nature
  • Caring for houseplants
  • A holiday by the sea or in the forest
  • Unstructured creative time such as painting, playing music, writing or many other creative outlets. Dedicating time to those creative projects are nurturing for you

Intuitive tools 101: run your energy!

Circulating your energy is another intuitive tool that is a cornerstone of psychic meditation along with grounding, centering and creating and destroying. It is a visual tool that is used to clear unwanted energy and is essential for helping you to get in touch with your own energy and answers.

The underlying principle behind this visualization is that energy is in constant motion. Your space, your chakras and your aura are not a static event. There is constant movement.

In the class we watch nourishing and nurturing energy flowing from the earth up to the feet, up the leg channels, into the base chakra and back down to the earth; and cosmic energy flowing from the cosmos down to the crown chakra, down the back channels into the base chakra, up the front channels and releasing out of the top of your head like a fountain.

You may imagine the flow of your energy as the flow of blood along the pathways of your blood-vessels of your body. Blood nourishes your body and provides it with the nutrients that are essential to its survival. If this flow stopped, even for a short period of time – your body would quickly become malnourished of oxygen and it would stop functioning. In the same way, without your earth and cosmic energy flows, your chakras would not be able to exchange information between one another and you would start to feel ‘out of touch’ with yourself.

In its most healthiest and most optimal state, energy is flowing freely and neutrally without any obstructions. In an unhealthy state your energy would be stuck or blocked. If it got stuck, then there is a picture or an energy that has come up and is blocking your flow. That may be your own picture that became lit up around a certain person or event or it may belong to someone else. In either case, you would want to find the picture and clear it if you want to experience wellness again.

Some of the signs of blocked energy are feelings of lethargy, depression, heaviness, procrastination, resistance and actual physical pain in the area of your body where the flow has stopped.

When you regularly practice all the tools taught at the ‘Meditation 1’ program, by default you start to become more and more aware of energy that belongs to you and energy that does not. Your own energy feels like ‘you’, it feels familiar and comfortable. While a surefire sign that someone else’s energy got into your space is when “you don’t quite feel like yourself”.

Consider running your energy as ‘pulling yourself together’. In that act of running your energy, you are bringing yourself and all of your information into present time and clearing out of your space any energy that is not yours.

There is a new 6-week program beginning on March 23 and classes running usual time at 4 PM GMT. Sign up through this link and pay for your spot here to begin to grow your psychic superpower!

Intuitive tools 101: the miracle of a spiritual hello

Just recently I spoke on the phone with someone from a psychic hot-line based here in the UK and it quickly became very clear that most of the general public are looking for a prediction on what will be rather than what can be worked with in the present time. There is really very little awareness of choice and creating in present time.

I looked at the energy of this hot-line as well as their website and saw that they rely heavily on their readers making predictions in the old-school fortune telling style, which is that the reader gives the readee a kind of a promise of what will happen so as to calm the readee’s fears about the future. This is to ensure that those readees keep coming back to this hot-line on a regular basis.

This style of psychic reading, however, does not consider the creative spirit of either the readee or the reader! The reader isn’t working with one’s own pictures and the readee isn’t having to do much work on oneself either. No growth is gained here. Not to mention it is dis-empowering.

An interesting observation I made was that it’s especially those people who have a large part of their energy vibrating in the past that are the ones most anxious about the future and seeking predictions. That is, they are working through some sort of heavy karma and have not as of yet awakened to themselves as a creative spirit in a body.

A readee who is seeking a quick prediction often does not realize that the future isn’t set in stone and that one can alter it by making choices in the present. He doesn’t realize that he creates his own reality through choices and beliefs in the present. Very few people also realize that instead of a prediction that promises great riches, fame and success, all one really needs is a simple healing.

The psychic reading style that does not consider the creative spirit, the soul or whatever you wan to call it, is lacking the most essential ingredient. Without such an awareness no true healing can occur.

Most people are unaware of themselves as spiritual beings and are unable to validate their own spirits. However, spirit, which is your own unique information, grows through validation. Your perceptions grow through your own inner validation not so much through validation that you receive from the outside. Outer validation can be a bonus of course, but can’t be leaned on at all times.

Sometimes, when processing invalidation, it can feel as though your hello doesn’t count, as though nothing works and all this energywork is just airy-fairy and plain useless, because there is very little outer world validation for it. Much of what we discuss about the world of energy is indeed subjective and depending on everyone’s own personal beliefs and perceptions, each of which are valid for that individual, of course, but here’s the one thing that always works miraculously: a spiritual hello! A simple spiritual hello is all that is needed sometimes to help heal someone and to help them back on track. It’s like a spiritual hug.

When you receive a hello on your spirit, an immediate healing happens. You will automatically be able to access the source of healing and well-being for yourself, the source of your own answers.

A simple spiritual hello to someone in a growth period is enough to give them a healing. No words, long explanations or theories are necessary. Just a graceful spiritual hello and one can immediately begin to access one’s own answers.

I have given many spiritual hello’s by visually looking at and validating someone on a spiritual level and witnessed the immediate miraculous effects of doing so each time. I have given spiritual hellos through thousands of scheduled readings as well as in impromptu everyday life situations.

I will share some examples with you …

One time, a few years ago now, I was doing part-time work in health care and I was working in a nursing home, caring for a very old woman. She had advanced dementia and was completely bed-ridden. That day she did not want to eat, but I was told by the senior nurse to continue to encourage her to eat. So I decided to check in with her on a spiritual level and give her a hello to see if a healing would make a difference. Her previously dull and lifeless eyes suddenly opened full of wonder and surprise. She now looked straight at me as though with recognition – she could not believe I could actually see her in her true form beyond the body. She then psychically communicated to me that she did not want to eat. I stopped trying to feed her and left her in peace after this.

Another time I was walking a woman with dementia, who had been wandering, back to her flat. She is a very sweet lady, very co-operative and peaceful, but very confused and usually does not make much sense when she speaks. Then, as we were walking, I suddenly saw a being out in front of me right outside of her apartment. She then asked me very clearly ‘who is it?’ I was astonished by her sudden responsiveness and presence; obviously, she too could see the being.

And last year after a bit of an unpleasant flight, when I arrived at the baggage collection area, I found out that my suitcase was missing and I wasn’t sure if I was ever getting it back! I then gave this whole situation a spiritual hello. I made sure to see the situation resolved and sent my gratitude to all those who were working hard to deliver my suitcase back to me. A few moments later I received a text message that the suitcase had been located and was already on its way back to me. While this wasn’t a hello to a living being as such it was still a hello on the energy of the situation and a hello to those that were in charge of this situation. This stressful situation became healed and resolved almost instantly with the help of a spiritual hello.

So the practical action steps to take are …

  1. Center yourself and get into a nice meditative space.
  2. Bring your awareness to the middle of your head.
  3. Visually see yourself out in front of you. See yourself grounded. See you energy moving. See your chakras spinning, aura layers flowing. See and sense.
  4. Enjoy the spiritual hello!

If you want to learn to center yourself and give yourself and others a spiritual hello, come and join the ‘Meditation I’ program. It is an ongoing correspondence program currently. There will be another series beginning in March. Look out for notifications!

When you touch someone’s life – it is a privilege. When you touch someone’s heart – it is a blessing. When you touch someone’s mind – it is an honor. When you touch someone’s soul – it is a triumph. When you touch someone’s spirit – it is a miracle. ~ Dr. Jeff Mullan

Intuitive tools 101: your growth period

When you regularly practice the tools taught at the meditation program, occasionally there comes a time when you begin to integrate all that work and all that you’ve learned – it’s time for a growth period.

So you visualized, destroyed pictures and circulated your energy – you’ve released old energy and brought in new energy. The visualizations worked. Now your perceptions have been stretched by new experiences and information and there is no going back to being small. You can’t unlearn what you’ve learned. You can’t take steps back in your evolution.

In a growth period it can seem as though nothing fits, as though you can’t see much, can’t get your energy running, your certainty has flown South. Maybe you also feel somehow unsettled, uneasy or as if you had ants in your pants!

Remember, in a growth period you are processing a lot, releasing something old and worn-out that no longer serves your highest good and integrating something brand new that paves the way for a happier, more golden future. In that transition space however, you might not know whether to sit or stand, laugh or cry, stay where you are or run away. And that’s okay.

You and your energy are not static. As an energy being you are in constant motion and evolution. So your beliefs, how you see yourself and the world around you are also in constant change. When your spirit is growing, the body can feel a little unsettled by it. Simply reset your grounding to present time and let it have its adjustment period.

Your growth period is that time between periods of enthusiastic learning. You have already accumulated enough knowledge and wisdom and now it’s time to integrate. It’s not a time to push forward towards new horizons, but to simply be with the growth. That would be the most compassionate thing to do for yourself at this point.

A growth period is what makes all the work you have done so far real.

Learning to recognize that you are in a growth period and not ‘out of order’ you will be much gentler and less demanding on yourself. You are not taking steps back in your evolution, you haven’t lost your ‘edge’ – you simply need time to process all that has been learned and gained up to date. It’s essential to give yourself that downtime to process.

So the practical action steps to take when you find yourself in a growth period are …

  • Reset your grounding into present time.
  • Be gentle with yourself.
  • Remember your amusement.
  • Take plenty of naps and have as much rest as you need.
  • Have chocolate.
  • Watch a comedy.

Join the meditation class if you would also like to learn to meditate, develop your intuition and get a handle on your sensitivity. It’s six weeks of pure psychic self-exploration fun!
