How to trust yourself

Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of Instagram Post – Untitled Design

There have been so many times when I’ve doubted and not fully trusted myself. Yes, me with the direct hotline to spirit! Even now, after years of developing my connection to Source, spirit and my higher self, I have times when the temptation to not trust myself reigns supreme.

However, just like you, I’ve learned the hard way that when you don’t trust yourself and the guidance that comes from within, you soon regret it. Which is why it’s key to learn how to trust yourself and listen to the wisdom that comes from within.

I’ve found that by being able to trust myself I have been able to follow my intuition and make decisions with increased confidence.

I mean imagine how much easier life would be if you felt that you could trust yourself more when it comes to dating, making career choices and going for new opportunities?

It would be a lot easier right?

So, let me help you out by sharing 3 tips that you can implement now to get you started with learning how to trust yourself.

1. Listen to your body

Your body will often give you an indication about people, places and situations. You know that feeling that you get in your tummy, that sharp pain that you suddenly get in your head or that expanded feeling you get in your chest? It means something. Begin noticing how your body responds when you get good vibes and bad vibes. When you’re in situations and around people that you love and those that drive you insane. Learn to interpret those sensations for yourself and trust it.

2. Start believing in yourself

Most of the time you don’t trust yourself because you don’t believe in yourself. Preoccupied by all the times that you thnk that you made the wrong choice, seriously fucked up or have been told/made to feel stupid, you’ve learned not to believe in you and your ability to make appropriate choices for your life. It’s time to forgive and love you because it’s not easy to trust someone that you can’t forgive or love. What makes you lovable + amazing? Recall the times when trusting yourself paid divends.

3. Raise your vibration

When you are feeling doubtful and confused you tend to slip into a lower vibration. In a lower vibrational state it’s hard to connect to the voice within and trust yourself. Clearing and raising your vibration supports you in elevating yourself out of that density. When your vibration is higher your energy expands, you can think a little clearer and are more open to synchroncities that guide you along your path.

If you’ve had years of not trusting yourself then it may be a little unrealistic to think that you’ll develop that trust overnight. Although, miracles definitely happen. However, from experience I’ve found that you need to practise. Taking the time to know yourself, connect to your body and build a positive relationship with yourself. So, don’t feel the need to rush or berate yourself. Be kind and value yourself in the way that you others. You’re worth it.

How to forgive someone who hurt you: Ho’oponopono

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian prayer used for healing, transformation, inner-peace and self-love. 

It’s a prayer/ritual that I was introduced to whilst completing Angelic Reiki practitioner training in 2012. Yet, wasn’t a prayer that I naturally gravitated toward until more recently.

Ho’oponopono is a really simple and effective prayer that you can say aloud or to yourself whenever there has been disharmony or discord between you and another.

By saying the prayer you are beginning and facilitating that process of clearing the energy of the pain, frustration, jealousy, anger, trauma or any other lower vibrational energy that you are carrying, as well as that which exists between you and the other person.

Ho’oponopono Prayer

The words of this prayer are simple and easy to remember:

Meanings of the mantras

Please forgive me
When you are saying this you are acknowledging and accepting responsibility for your energy. Cleansing the energy.

I’m sorry
When you are saying that you are sorry you are accepting responsibility for the part you played – the thoughts, actions and emotions – that have kept this discord alive.

I love you
Now you are extending your love to yourself, the other person and beyond.

Thank you
Expressing gratitude to your self and the universe for supporting you in transmuting the energy and bringing healing to the situation.

Now, it’s worth remembering that forgiveness and healing are a process. This means that it can often take time, particularly when the wounds and pain run deep.

Also, forgiveness is not about the other person, justifying behaviour or forcing someone to apologise for what you perceive to be wrong.

This is releasing energy that’s weighing you down and may be even leading you down a road of pain, as well as misalignment. You deserve better.

Use this prayer as and when you feel guided. As often as you feel that you want to. Allow the peeling away of the layers of density and un-forgiveness to occur naturally, at the rate that’s right for you. Just be open.

5 crystals for peace + calm within

I’m often asked to share crystal suggestions for managing stress and anxiety. So, in this post I’m sharing some crystal suggestions based on my own experience and knowledge.

Having struggled with stress and anxiety at different points in my life, there are various things that have helped me. However, it was getting to the root cause of anxiety and becoming aware of my triggers which really supported me in managing, as well as eliminating my anxiety.

One of the tools that has helped me is crystals. Finding them a great tool to assist with tuning into and alleviating ant unsettling feelings. Using them in my daily life and alongside other practices, including prayer, angelic Reiki, meditation or exercise.

As you can imagine there are many crystals to work with. Yet, I’ve selected my faves. Ones that I’ve personally used and found really helpful.


Known as a stress relieving stone that grounds the mind. It’s also a stone that brings clarity, which means it can support you in seeing things from a new perspective or bringing to the surface the ways in which you are bringing stress to your life. A soothing energy that helps to relax your spirit and mind.


This little marble effect crystal has a very calm and peaceful vibration. Making it excellent to have under your pillow or in your hand as you fall asleep, as it helps to calm an overactive mind. A great one to use when lack of sleep is a contributing factor to unsettled, angry or stress related symptoms.

Rose Quartz

Although many know this as a love stone it’s also healing and soothing too. Having this Crystal with you or within sight can remind you of the importance of slowing down and taking care of yourself. It bring to the surface all the ways you are not vibing at the level of unconditional love. Something that’s often an issue for those who are stressed and anxious as a result of giving too much to others or running on empty.

Black Tourmaline

Sometimes that stressy and anxious energy that you feel is not your own. Instead it’s comes as a result of absorbing the energy of others around us or our environment. Where this is the case carrying a piece of black tourmaline can create an energetic boundary between you and others. Helping you to protect your own energy and not be a sponge for the energy of others. This crystal can also be paired with Rose Quartz for balance.


As soon you hold this crystal in your hand you’ll feel it’s calming energy and start to relax. This crystal or Blue Lace Agate are known for being great stress relievers and for their peaceful energy. Both carrying very soothing and relaxing vibrations.

When choosing your crystals allow yourself to be guided as each of us will resonate with a different crystal. Crystals work on an energy level so will be drawn energetically, bringing what you need in order to experience what you need, even if you are not aware of this.

You can use your crystals in a variety of ways, including: keeping one in your bra/pocket, adorning your wrist in the form of bracelet, under your pillow, on your nightstand or in your hand during prayer/meditation. Choose the method that feels right for you and be open to this changing over time.

Heart healing + love attraction crystals

I thought I’d share a few of my fave heart healing crystals. These are crystals that I was guided to at a point in my life when my heart chakra was healing.

When I was guided to these crystals I didn’t know they all resonated with the heart chakra. Instead, I simply allowed myself to be guided and trusted. Which is my best piece of advice when working with crystals!

Crystals are energy and they vibrate at a constant vibration. Supporting you to raise our vibe, balance, cleanse, align…..when you connect with its energy. Therefore, if you feel drawn to a crystal then it’s likely that the crystal has ‘chosen you’ and you can reap the benefits of working with it.

So, if you’re not feeling any of these crystals then know that that’s ok. Trust that feeling and allow yourself to be guided to what you need personally.

A rather epic heart healing crystal which is most effective for deep emotional healing, including soulmate and past lives.

What Rhodochrosite does best is bring those suppressed old wounds to the surface and to your awareness. This isn’t about revisiting the past or reliving the pain. Instead it’s about seeing and identifying so that it can be healed, addressed and released.

It’s good to have this crystal with you during a healing session or meditation to facilitate that healing process.

Rhodochrosite has more of a gentle and soothing energy. Therefore, it supports you to go through the healing process gradually and at your own pace.

Rose Quartz
The most well known crystal for love that there is. Rose Quartz has been used in many a love, healing and attraction ritual, as well as being used as a talisman for love.

Vibrating at the frequency of love this crystal can show you your own personal barriers to love. Then, if you choose to, you can work with it intentionally to support you in releasing those barriers.

Yet, it’s also a crystal that promotes forgiveness, compassion + self love others, as well as yourself. Therefore, don’t be surprised if when working with Rose Quartz you are guided towards forgiveness and finding love within, as well as for yourself.

Green Aventurine
Another heart healing stone yet one that comes with an element of vitality and good luck.

Resonating with the heart chakra it brings balance to this chakra. So, you find that any lessons of the heart that you need to learn, eg: over-giving, learning to say no or healthy boundaries, Green Aventurine will highlight those to you. Therefore, giving you the opportunity to take care of yourself and open yourself up to receiving.

A beautiful Crystal to work with when rebuilding your sense of self worth and deserving.

You can blend your heart healing crystals into your life in whatever way suits you. Carrying them with on a daily basis, meditating with them or having them with you during your healing session.

Sometimes the energy shifts are quick and at other times it can be a more gradual process, something that is most likely when working with Rhodochrosite. Notice the shifts when they do occur and any external occurrences which may be leading you in a new direction. Who knows where or to whom it may lead!

It’s also not uncommon and I’ve known it possible for the energy shifts, mixed with being proactive, leading to attracting new opportunities or rekindling existing connections in love.

Yet, if nothing else it will set you on the path to realising the greatest love of all is within you and is you. It was there all along!

How do you let go of someone you love?

Let Go, Break-ups

At the time of a Full Moon we often talk about letting go.

Releasing people, things and situations that you feel or know are no longer supporting you in manifesting your dreams into reality. Or, indeed, do not support you in becoming the person who is living the life that you are wanting to align with.

But, how easy is it to just let go?

How easy is it to let go of a relationship and ex that you love, as well invested time and energy into?

How easy is it to let go of a painful memory or experience from your past? Maybe even one that dates back to your childhood.

I know that it’s not always that easy.

Even with the cord cutting meditations, forgiveness practices and ‘letting go’ rituals available via Google, YouTube….. Still some people struggle with letting go and releasing, especially when it comes to love. Letting go for a short while only to fall right back into the arms of that lover and into the familiar chaos.

What’s up with that, huh?

Well, from both my own experience and that of others I’ve noticed a few things that hold people back. So, let me share them with you.

1. You don’t let go of love

When people let go they think this means letting go of the love. The thing is: Can you ever let go of what you perceive to be true and/or unconditional love?

What tends to have the tightest grip is attachment to the experience and the perceived outcome that you believe arises from letting go. (PAUSE. Take that in for a moment.)

This might include:

  • Being single for ever
  • What people might say
  • That person meeting someone else first
  • The regret or shame

Experiences are a natural part of life. With each one and each personal encounter being an opportunity for growth, blessings and new learning. This is what I’ve found often leads us to aligning with what we want, who is truly for us and our best selves.

2. Your motivation

Let’s be real. Sometimes people hold on for selfish reasons. Reasons that are motivated by fear, lack, scarcity or control. All of which are the total opposite of love.

Be honest about why you are holding on and ask yourself if this is really an expression of love.

3. You are not a victim

When faced with the situation of having to let go some people start asking questions such as:

  • Why me?
  • Why is this happening to me?
  • Why can’t I be lucky/find love?
  • What’s wrong with me?

These questions are natural at first yet I’ve found that it doesn’t help to dwell on them. Why? Because you tend to plunge yourself further down into the rabbit hole.

Three questions to ask instead would be:

  • How does it serve me to hold on?
  • How does if serve me to let go?
  • Which brings me to closer to my Divine purpose?

Notice the difference in the energy of these questions and how empowering they have the potential to be.

Letting go is often a process and not something that happens overnight.

Give yourself time and space.

Connect with your mentors, coaches and guides who can often give you fresh perspective or wisdom because they are not in your situation.

Use the guidance that comes through with discernment.

Trust and have faith that you’ll bloom from the experience. Stronger, wiser, more loving and beautiful than before.

Stop attracting the wrong guys + relationships

‘She Let Go’ guide to letting go

Why you keep attracting the ‘wrong’ guys or the same crappy relationships

In this blog post I want to address an issue that many people struggle with and ask me about all the time:

Why do I keeep attracting the same guys or types of relationships?

And this was something that I struggled with for a long, long time. Yet when I came to and was guided to some of the realisations that I’ll share in this post it helped me to shift my perspective. Which helped me in not falling into the same patterns and having to go back to square one in terms of healing, aligning and attracting what I want.

So, in sharing I’m hoping that it will help you in some way too and get you aligned with experiencing the love you want.

1. Stop labelling them as the ‘wrong’ man 
In the world of spirituality, energy and law of attraction there is no real wrong or right. Yet there are many lessons and blessings. For every relationship that hasn’t ended with ‘happily ever after’ there will be a lesson and blessing to be savioured from it. For every man who has abandoned you, cheated on you or let you down there will be more lessons and blessings to be gained.

It’s up to you to find them.

It could be that you found your own strength, fell back in love with you, started a new hobby that became a successful business, discovered the power of forgiveness or taught you the importance of maintaining healthy boundaries.

The bottom line is when you set an intention to attract your true love, your soul and all of your spiritual team may have to show you your barriers to love first. Once you overcome those barriers you get to align, receive and enjoy.

2. Time to change the record 
What record about love, relationships and men are you playing on repeat in your mind or aloud amongst your girlfriends over wine on a Friday night? 

You’ll know what your record is by the way in which you:

Talk about men, love and relationships 
React or respond when you see loved up couples or hear someone is dating someone new 

The thoughts and responses that you have are all very, very telling about how you truly feel about your chances of being in a loving, happy and committed relationship with the man of your dreams. 

This is important to know when it comes to the mind because they say that your mind cannot hold conflicting thoughts, stories and beliefs. That which has the weakest vibration will be cancelled out by the one with the dominant vibration. So, if you think and feel you are not good enough and all men are cheating bastards, yet say you want to meet ‘the one’. Which thought do you think carries the most weight?

3. Holding on to the past 
I see it a lot and am guilty of having done this myself. It’s something that’s easily done especially when you’ve invested time and energy into a relationship, or when it’s been a while since you met someone whose sparked a light within. However, when the spark has gone or when the relationship is dead, it’s important to find a way to let it all go.

Holding onto the past equates to holding onto old energy. Energy that’s ready to be released. I learned the hard way that until I energetically let go and made up my mind to move on, I would play the going back and forth game much longer than needed. 

Sometimes the new and the better relationship + person, are right there for you yet whilst you’re holding on you won’t see it. There are times that even when you do see it you fail to appreciate it or you pick faults where there are none. Unintentionally, talking yourself out of the relationship you’ve been dreaming of.

4. Check the company you keep
Carrying on from letting go, you may find that some people in your circle need to be added to the list. 

Yep, the sad truth is: Not everyone is for you!

If you are rolling with people who are constantly male-bashing, don’t clap when you win, seldom ask how you are but happily moan about their own life or constantly repeat BS cycles in love and life, decide if you want to be hanging with them every weekend. 

IThe people in your circle should be supportive. They should have your back and want to see you win. Being inspired and uplifted goes a long way too.

Notice who’s there for you and don’t be afraid to make some edits. If only for a specific period of time.

5. How you feel about yourself matters
How you truly feel about yourself often resonates on the outside and the way that you treat yourself. It also has an impact on what and who you attract, as well as what you entertain or put up with too.

When you are investing in yourself and naturally feeling good you are not going to want anyone killing your vibe. Therefore, you’ll be more discerning about the relationships you get into and the men you engage with. In fact, I’ve found that when I started investing in me it was much easier to separate the boys from the potential kings.

So, what can you do to invest in how you look and feel from the inside out?

This might involve making changes to your morning routine, such as introducing gratitude, prayer, meditation and mirror work. Alternatively, you may want to do more outer beauty work to raise your vibe, such as changing your eating habits, hitting the gym, updating your wardrobe or experimenting with colour in your beauty routine. Maybe it’s a combination of inner and outer beauty.

Whatever it is make sure that your attention and intention revolves around you. Raising your own vibration so that you feel and look amazing from the inside out.

Once you notice your patterns and habits you have the opportunity to make a different choice.

People of all kinds will still be attracted to you. However, with wisdom, awareness and discernment you can make smarter (for want of a better word) decisions about who you get into a relationship with. After all, it is you who choose what and who you entertain and for how long. Don’t prolong the lesson and starve yourself of the ultimate blessing that your heart desires.

Heart + Self Healing

Self and heart healing

I came to self and heart healing almost a decade ago. Like many, it was a time in my life where I felt as if my heart had broken into a million pieces. Not yet recognising that rock bottom would be the place where a new, better version of me and embodiment of love would be created.

Maybe as you read this now you are in the midst of your own heartbreak. Experiencing sadness, pain, loss, resentment or anger and feeling as if there is no hope for you where matters of the heart are concerned. Whereas I won’t tell you how to think and feel, I can share with you some insight into heart and self-healing. Doing so, with the intention to inspire you to take those tentative steps towards self and heart healing, as I did 10 years ago.


Heart Healing meditation

The mind is given much kudos for being a driving force in supporting you to manifest your intentions into your life. With little regard given to the heart. In fact, being heart centred or focusing upon your heart is considered wishy-washy or irrelevant.

However, recent research has shown that the heart is effectively like the second brain. Holding within it much wisdom alongside the memories and feelings of yesteryear. Due to its strong electromagnetic field (5,000 times stronger than the brain), whatever you feel within your heart can be felt by other people several feet away.

It is this very idea of the heart as such a powerful organ of the body that has been echoed throughout time, namely by the Ancient Egyptians.

During funeral ceremonies, the heart would be the only organ not removed because it was revered as being the throne of wisdom, where thoughts and emotions resided.

As for the brain. Well, that was the only organ that would be removed because it was considered to have no real significance.

So, what does this have to do with heart healing and feeling better after experiencing heartache or pain?

When you think about love where do you commonly feel the expansion of energy?

In your heart.

When you split with an ex or pine for an ex-lover, where do you feel the tight and contracted energy?

In your heart.

So much of what is felt emanates from the heart. This is great when you feel good, happy, joyful and all loved up.

I mean think about the meaning that life takes on, all the synchronicity you experience and your ability to bounce back when the heart is expanded.

This is in contrast to the lack of clarity and victim thinking of “Why me?” Which is often followed up with that feeling of being stuck and unlucky in love.

From this simple explanation alone it becomes apparent that the energy emanating from your heart (based on your thoughts and emotions) has an impact on your energy field. Therefore an impact on what you invite into your energy and your life.

By clearing your heart of the energy of fear, lack, pain, anger, scarcity….. you release yourself from the burden of the past. In doing so, healing your heart and increasing the probability of aligning with your true soul-inspired intentions.

It is common that when heart healing is activated the connection between the Divinity and wisdom that lies within is amplified. A concept that has long since been echoed by mystics and spiritual teachers from different world religions. Each one believing that the soul, the Divine or the Buddha-like self resides within the chambers of the heart.

From my own personal practice of self and heart healing, I’ve noticed this to be true. Whilst also finding that my alignment increases when engaging my heart. In fact, on one occasion, I recall overriding the doubt of the mind by engaging from the heart and manifested a miracle healing in less than 24 hours.


Healing the Heart meditation

This meditation has it’s origins in Tantra and is a powerful way to release heavy feelings from your heart.

A simple meditation that engages both the mind and the heart. It has been known to move people to tears (myself included) as the energies leave the body. Whilst you focus on replacing this heavy energy with unconditional love.

Angelic Reiki Healing with Chanel Marie

I’ve seen and personally experienced profound shifts from Angelic Reiki sessions. Especially as clients start to release that energy that has left them feeling heavy from within.

My own personal experience evoked memories from the past (and past lives), something that isn’t uncommon. However, rather than getting caught up and lost in the story of that memory, I found it brought understanding that had been missing. Thus, closure on a repetitive relationship and cycle, simply by observing, releasing and replacing with unconditional love.


Rose Quartz is famed for being the love crystal. The Crystal that you pop into your bra, adorn yourself with or add to a crystal elixir when you want to attract love into your life. However, it’s way more powerful than that.

Vibrating at the frequency of unconditional love working with Rose Quartz will reveal, one by one, anything within or without which is not in alignment with its vibration. Therefore, making it an excellent crystal to work with when you know within that you are ready to dissolve your barriers to love.

Thankfully, the energy of Rose Quartz is gentle and soothing. So, although what is revealed might be a hard pill to swallow the soothing energy of Rose Quartz can support and guide you to refuel yourself with unconditional love.
