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 RESEARCH + THE ANCIENTS

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.

A HEART HEALING MEDITATION

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

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

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.

Crystal tips for busy women

You are pushed for time: You’ve got to look after the kids and the big kid himself, aka your partner (don’t tell him I said that). You’ve gotta keep the house looking pristine and excel in your job/business. Then let’s not forget making time for family and friends. With so much going on each day you often wonder how you are going to find time for you. And let’s be real, quite often you just don’t get that chance. However, it doesn’t have to be that way, especially if you get your roxx out. Crystal roxx that is.

Crystals are a beautiful tool to support you in shifting your energy so that you feel better within yourself. As a crystal lover and certified therapist, I have discovered a few tips and tricks that can make working with crystals simple and effective.

Crystals are much more than pretty little roxx. They are bundles of energy that vibrate at a constant and high vibration. So, by bringing them into your energy field you are can begin to balance your energy, which helps you in so many different ways, including:

~ Healing
~ Clearing energy
~ Raising your vibration
~ Manifesting

And that’s just for starters. You can even use them in your home or work environment in discrete and simple ways to help shift and balance the energy too.

GETTING STARTED

Incorporating crystals into your life doesn’t have to be prissy, fancy and OTT. Simple and consistent actions can make a world of difference.

Crystal bra friends

This is an age-old trick that many of us soul sisters have been practicing for years. Back in the day, before crystals were cool, I’d keep a crystal or two in my bra. Charged with the energy of my intention it supported me in connecting to my own strength, wisdom and girl power. Enabling me to withstand some tricky situations, especially in the workplace, and attract a few hotties and other opportunities too. So, choose a crystal that compliments the energy of what you want to embody or let the crystal choose you. Clear the energy and then hold it in your hand, speaking your intention into the crystal. When you’re ready to pop it inside your bra, nice and close to your heart chakra- the energetic bridge between your physical and spiritual self. Just be careful in the changing rooms because they do have a tendency to go walkies.

Gratitude rock
A tip that’s been expanded upon from the book The Magic. In the book, it’s suggested that you have a gratitude rock. Each night you are meant to hold it in your hand and remember one thing that you are grateful for that day. Then place it on your bedside or under your pillow as a divine reminder of all the things in your life that you have to be grateful for. Instead of a rock, you can use a crystal, being sure to choose one that compliments the energy that you want to experience or something you want to attract into your life. Doing this helps to expand and maintain that vibration of gratitude, as well as positive energy.

Crystal jewellery
Take a stylish approach by adorning yourself in beautiful crystal jewellery. This allows you to create your own perfect crystal cocktail mix that compliments your energy, as well as your intentions. Personally, I love to create my own crystal bracelet stacks choosing crystals that I’m drawn to or that I know will match the energy of my desires. Seeing the bracelets on my wrist act as a divine reminder of the energy that I’m working towards and my desires that I am manifesting into reality. You’ll find that when you have those moments of not feeling aligned that you’ll catch a glimpse of your bracelets and you’ll be reminded of your desires. This can support you in surrendering and realigning your energy.

NOW IT’S OVER TO YOU

These are just 3 easy ways to include crystals into your daily life. However, it’s important to remember that crystals only work if you do. Therefore, you need to bring your awareness and intuition into the mix to support you in taking divinely guided action.

You may find that when working with crystals you’ll be shown the different ways in which you are blocking the energy of your desires and intentions. This could be in the form of people who are no longer in alignment with you, self sabotaging behaviours or your own limiting thoughts. So, be aware of what comes up for you when you bring your crystals into your life and take the steps to realign. Your desires and the woman you are becoming are relying on you to be an active participant in your growth and healing.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my tips and tricks. If you’d like to know more about choosing crystals, clearing, charging and much more then download my free crystal guide here. Alternatively, if you would like to experience crystal healing in 2019 then click here to get in touch.

The Art of Letting Go: Why I stopped cutting cords + what I do instead

chanelmarie.co.uk

Before discovering Angelic Reiki I had practised cord cutting. Using it to support me in detaching myself energetically from a soulmate relationship and person that simply wasn’t right for me.

I must have completed this practice a dozen times or more. Yet every time I found myself going back to the soulmate or repeating the same patterns with a different person. Each time the experience would be more challenging and painful than the last. Which meant that I was in this cycle of continually cutting the cords. However, when I became an Angelic Reiki practitioner I discovered key elements of the core removal process that changed everything.


WHAT I NOTICED

During Angelic Reiki healing sessions I would often see AA Michael and the Angels removing the cords one by one, rather than cutting them. What I also noticed is that some of these cords were really long and thick, suggesting that the energy within had built up over time. In fact, what I learnt is that some of these cords went back to past lifetime.

Once the cords had been removed the space they had occupied would often be cleansed of any remaining, unwanted energy. The area would be sealed with light and throughout the process, I would often be given some insight into the:

  • Energy
  • Root cause
  • People
  • Feelings

Some of these roots will have gone back to situations or people in the past, including past lives, childhood and teenage years. All of which gave a clear indication of what needed to be released in order to facilitate the healing and letting go process.


WHAT I LEARNED

Removing cords

Removing the cord from the root helps to identify the root cause. That is the place where the thought, behaviour and pattern were first formed. Now, sometimes this is very obvious and is something that you are consciously aware of. However, there are times when the root cause of an issue you are dealing with is not blatantly obvious, eg: soulmate relationships or money issues.

In getting to the heart of the issue you can then take responsibility for your own growth and movement forward. Taking action on changing those behaviours, stories, beliefs that have kept you in a cycle or situation that doesn’t serve you.


Divine light + positivity

In sealing the space with Divine light and love this was a way of cleansing the space, removing any excess unwanted energy. I found this supportive in facilitating the healing process, especially when the cords have been attached for some time.

The additional benefit is that it sets a new foundation that can be built upon. That is built upon using energy: thoughts, desires and behaviours, that are positively aligned with what you want to experience. It’s really like a closing a door to the old and the creation of the new. Yet, this requires you to be conscious and aware to ensure you are not simply filling the space with more of the old.


Awareness, intuition and responsibility

Healing is a practice that requires you to show up and use your own awareness in order to facilitate that healing process. Your awareness is especially important during those times when healing may feel challenging and when you are tempted to just slip back into old ways.  This requires you to use your awareness to notice where energy cords are attached that no longer serve you or are draining you. It also means that noticing when you are slipping into old patterns and cycles. Then use wisdom, tools and the gift of your intuition to guide you towards making healthier, life-affirming choices.


WHAT NEXT?

Now, many people will have their own way of removing cords and, as I always say: If that works for you then keep going with it. However, there will be some people who, like me, find that simply cutting the cord wasn’t helpful. If this is you then if it resonates then try working with AA Michael to remove the cord from the root and make a commitment to really showing up for yourself, as well as your healing.

Keep in touch and let me know how it goes.

Psychics, mediums, intuitives….. What’s the difference?

There are so many different terms that are used to describe spiritual advisory work. This tends to cause confusion as people seek out an advisor who can meet their personal needs and requirements. To help you out I’ve created a mini guide that explains these terms in the simplest terms possible.

So, pour yourself a glass of Prosecco and sit back to explore the world of spiritual/psychic/medium/intuitive…readings.


PSYCHIC

A psychic is some who idea extra-sensory methods to gain insight into people, events and situations. Therefore, it’s not necessary for them to be in the presence of someone or physically in a situation to gain that insight.

Our ability to receive that insight can occur in the form of:

Clairvoyance – ‘clear seeing’, clairaudience – ‘clear hearing’, clairsentient – ‘clear feeling’ and claircognizance – ‘clear knowing’…..etc…..

With each of the Clair senses you are going beyond the physical, eg: what you can see with the naked eye and working with extrasensory senses or your spiritual eyes, ears extra in order to read people and situations.

Often we have to decipher the images, words and feelings that we receive and word it in a way that resonates with that person. For me, this is where the help of my guides, your guides, the angels and the rest of my spiritual team really steps in. What they often do is explain what the symbols mean so that I can relay that information.

Although each of us has a degree of psychic ability some do have it more strongly than others. Also a psychic will have put in the work and practice to develop their ability.


INTUITIVE

What we all have is intuition. The ability to get that hunch or gut feeling about someone or something.

Although very similar to psychic work, which is why confusion can arise, an intuitive will get more instant flashes of insight and these insights don’t need deciphering in the way a psychic’s insight would.

Intuition comes from within. Often described as the voice of your soul. Therefore it tends to be best utilised when offering guidance on everyday life, either your own or to guide others.

Making it a useful gift to tune into when making decisions, as it will align you with the choice that’s in agreement with your soul desires. And sometimes your lessons too.


MEDIUM

Now, this is where many potential clients become confused because it’s often believed that psychics are mediums too. This isn’t always the case.

A medium is someone who can connect to those who have passed over. This can include spirit guides, angels, saints or a loved one who has passed over.

Not all mediums will channel and connect with your loved one who has passed away, preferring to just connect with the spirit they have an established relationship with. For example, I tend to work with my nan, Archangels- particularly Michael, Azrael and Jophiel, Saints (Expedite, Martha) or celebrities such as Lady Di.

When choosing a medium to choose someone that you really feel a connection with. Go to mediumship nights and see if the medium establishes that connection with your loved one. Do your research.


CHANNEL

Someone who Channels will literally zone out of the ‘real world’ and ego mind to receive a flow of guidance. The guidance literally flows through them and can often do so at a pace, so keep your ears peeled when having a reading with someone who Channels so you don’t miss anything. However, channeling can also be in the form of writing which is where email readings come in useful.


SPIRITUAL ADVISOR

Some people may also use the label spiritual consultant too.

A spiritual advisor will use a range of tools and modalities to support you in growing and making positive changes in your life. For example, I may draw upon my psychic gift or healing into spiritual advisory sessions, mixed with practical guidance sometimes drawing on relevant personal experience. So, it will depend on who you are working with as someone else may be more of life coach who incorporates spiritual practices. Therefore, it’s important to choose the right spiritual advisor for you.

With a spiritual advisor positive changes are not likely to be made over night so you will, most likely, work with a spiritual advisor over a period of time.


Hopefully, this post will help you to select the right reading or package of readings for you. It may even be of help to those of you who are wanting to develop your own abilities too.

Either do your research and really trust your own inner guidance when selecting the right type of reader for you.

Day 5: The crystal everyone needs to know about

Personally, I feel like I’ve saved the best crystal for last!

Today’s crystal is one that I think that everybody should have in their crystal collection because of its versatility and the amazing impact it can have on your vibration. Let me introduce you to Selenite.


WHY YOU NEED SELENITE IN YOUR LIFE

OMG! There are so many reasons why you need this crystal in your life and this is everything to do with its amazing healing benefits.

You can use it to cleanse your energy field of any dense and heavy energy that you’re carrying within. Whipping your chakra system back into shape by clearing and balancing each chakra. This also brings you back into alignment: Feeling positive, good about life and even better about yourself. Who doesn’t wanna experience that?

It amplifies the energy of crystals, objects and intentions because it is such a high vibrational stone. Therefore it’s a good idea to use this Selenite alongside other crystals to amplify the energy of your intention.

Selenite doesn’t need to be recharged and can actually be used to charge and cleanse other crystals. That being said I will, when guided to, cleanse mine with Sage or Angelic Reiki. It’s also commonplace for me to use one of my big chunks of Selenite as a cleansing and charging bed. This means I lay my crystal bracelets and watch on top of the Selenite so that it can be cleared of unwanted energy. Then it’s recharged and ready to be used the next day. Magic.

Liquid Light, another name for Selenite, attracts the energy of light. Which is why it’s so good for cleansing, purifying, protecting and raising your vibration.


HOW TO USE SELENITE

There are so many different ways to use and reap the energetic benefits of this beautiful crystal. Here is my absolute fave:

Aura Cleansing. Move your Selenite wand slowly and intentionally down your body. I like to start at my crown chakra (top of my head), down the front of the body and all the way down to and under my feet. You also want to make sure that you run the wand over your arms, as well as down the back of your body too. Saying a prayer of intention or visualising the dense energy being absorbed by the Selenite where it’s transmuted into light. I like to pay attention to areas where I’m experiencing pain, as this tends to be where there is a block in the energy.

Failing that you can also sleep with it under your pillow at night to promote relaxation and a night of good sleep. You can also place it on your body during meditation, including laying it on a pain point or chakra point to promote healing and balance.

Day 5: The crystal everyone needs to know about

Day 1: Rose Quartz

Loving yourself and feeling confident in your own skin are key aspects of sacred beauty. It promotes healthy self-esteem and a sense of self-worth that comes from within. Meaning that you don’t feel the need to look for validation from others or feel the need to change in order to fit in, be accepted or feel loved.

Yet, in today’s modern world this isn’t always easy. Pressure from social media, magazines and celeb culture can often leave women feeling like they have to conform to be beautiful. And let’s not forget the pain and anguish that comes from heartbreak, bullying and other soul-destroying situations, which can leave you feeling un-pretty, unworthy and less than in so many ways.

Whilst there are many methods that can be used to heal and move beyond these feelings there are little gems from the Earth which, if used alongside these methods, can give your healing a little energetic boost.

These gems are crystals, with Rose Quartz being the perfect crystal for all things sacred beauty and love related.


LOVE + ROSE QUARTZ:

A LITTLE BACKGROUND

Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first.” – Carrie Bradshaw

Rose Quartz is one of those crystals which can be hugely underestimated. It’s often thought of that crystal that helps us to attract the lover of our dreams. Yet it is so much more than this. In fact, before it even draws the love another close it will show you all the ways that you need to love yourself first!

This candy pink gemstone is a nurturing stone. A stone of compassion and unconditional love. Making it a beautiful companion during times of heartache or pain, including period pain. As it’s soothing, healing and energy of unconditional love it works to dissolve those barriers of pain, sadness and fear.


HOW TO MAKE ROSE QUARTZ PART OF YOUR DAILY LIFE

There are many different ways to make this crystal part of your everyday life. For example, it’s believed that the Goddess Aphrodite used to place Rose Quartz in her bath so that the loving energy of the crystal could be absorbed into her body and energy field. This way of working with crystals has been adopted by many modern sacred beauties, like you and I. It’s certainly a beautiful way to relax at the end of a stressful day. I can vouch for that.

One way that I make Rose Quartz part of my day is by keeping a small selection of tumbled stones in a glass bowl on my dressing table. This helps to hold the vibration of unconditional love, self-love and beauty as I apply my makeup. It’s also a personal reminder for me too.

As Rose Quartz resonates with the heart chakra it makes sense to place it over your heart chakra during meditation. This can have the effect of opening the heart of receive love whilst also promoting relaxation. You might like to try this heart-centred meditation.

Alternatively, you may simply wish to wear your Rose Quartz in your bra, so it’s close to your heart space or adorns your wrist with a beautiful Rose Quartz bracelet. How you choose to connect with and work with your crystal is entirely up to you.


ARE YOU READY TO MAKE ROSE QUARTZ PART OF YOUR LIFE?

Loving yourself, recognising your own beauty and being confident in your own skin are essential ingredients for Sacred Beauty. So, if you could with a little support in this area Rose Quartz can be a great tool to work with. Using it alongside affirmations, meditation, Angelic Reiki or other forms of self-development as it helps to amplify the energy of your intention.

If you are thinking of or already do work with Rose Quartz I’d love to hear from you. Comment below and I’ll respond to your comment.

JUNE VIBES

giphy

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.”

– Oprah Winfrey


Think like a Queen feels to be the vibration of June.  Along with focused intention and having your eye on the bigger picture.

It’s the beginning of a new month. The previous months have been hard going for many. Lots of energy clearing, releasing and healing integration going on. This month brings in new energy. Somewhat lighter. Somewhat more expansive than what we’ve been used to so far this year.

With this energy brings new opportunities to venture to the places that you have never been before. This will require courage, focus + the willingness to step out of your comfort zone. In fact, the phrase that I am hearing is:

Feel the Fear + Do it Anyway

Also, the name of an awesome book that I read on my hols many years ago. If you have not read it then I suggest that you check it out. I am sure that you won’t regret it and you can thank me later.

Let’s get back to June……..

This month it will be a good idea to connect to the bigger picture. Posing the questions:

Are you now able to see the bigger picture more clearly? Are pieces of the puzzle falling into place?

Where the answer is No – What are you going to do about it? What do you need to change? Where the answer is Yes – Celebrate and take note of what is supporting you to stay in alignment.

Yet, whether the answer is hell yeah or absolutely fucking not, the guidance remains the same: Develop your ability to go within, connect with your soul and trust. Trust the guidance that it brings forth. Those hunches. Those signs. Those aha moments. Those times of synchronicity.


JUNE ACTIONS 

Tune into your heart space. Hear what your mind has to say. Then give yourself permission to tune out of your head and into your heart. Ask for guidance on a particular question or burning issue. How does it resonate with your heart?

Be grateful for where you are and what you are learning. Take baby steps in order to remain consistent.
