Monthly Intuitive Tarot: February 2019

King of Cups ● Judgement ● Knight of Coins
You Deserve Love

Judgement
The first card that jumped out at me was the Judgement card, which find itself in the present position in this spread.

So, seeing as it popped out first, let’s find out what it has to say.

This card is bringing the message of suspending all judgement and expectation about:

What things should look like?
How things should be?


As much as you can and should have high expectations, as well as a vision that you are working towards, it’s worth remembering that sometimes the outcome looks different to how you expect.

Spending so much time judging what your current reality looks like is holding you back from enjoying the gift(s) of the moment.

Maybe the miracle isn’t the new man, job, car, house….. that you’ve been praying for.

Maybe the miracle is what you have in this current moment, eg: The space to recreate yourself and life. More time to spend with loved ones. Energy to go to gym and get fit…….

When you are locked in judgement, you are locked in lower level thinking + energy. Ask yourself how conducive that is for your wellbeing, healing and attraction.

Other messages: Forgive yourself for what you did or did not do in the past. Judge yourself (and others) less and maybe people will judge you less too. That or you will cease to be bothered about the opinions of others.

King of Cups
The King of Cups fell in the past position of this spread.

He gives some insight into the energy of the past that is likely to be having an impact on the present.

Here we see a man sitting pretty, despite the rough waters around him.

What can you learn from him?

Well, he’s looking forward for a start, isn’t he? Having left the past behind as best he can in order to get on with his life and enjoy it.

From his past he has learned his lessons, acquired wisdom and traits he will now use in the present to create his new future. Compassion, self-confidence, warmth and kindness to others and himself.

With this in mind: What gifts from the past can you bring into the present? What have you learned or acquired that will support you in becoming a better version of you?

I’m also very drawn to his jacket where I can see what is being shown to me as eyes. I feel this relates to someone or something that is still in his heart. It’s not a problem that something or someone is still in his heart. He accepts this and is able to keep moving forward regardless because he’s armed with wisdom + knowing from yesteryear.

Knight of Coins
The Knight falls in the position of future possibilities in this spread.

Another male energy, yet he is less emotional than the King of Cups and certainly less experienced. Yet he is using what he has to heal and create anew.

Why heal?

Well, I’m drawn to all of the green in the card which, for me, symbolises healing and the heart chakra. The heart chakra being depicted as a green disc.

He’s emerging from the darkness, having taken the wisdom of the King of Cups and Judgement on board in a way that resonates with him.

Yet there is a word of caution here because, although the Knight is working towards the light, he doesn’t seem to be appreciating or even noticing. Instead he is fixated on what’s in his hand. Not recognising that there is more than that on offer and more to be created if he steps more into the “healing light”.

Now, coins symbolise money, yet I am feeling that this coin simply represents something that the Knight deems to be a high value.

His progress is slow and will be further slowed if he chooses not to step into the light.

Other messages: Enjoy the progress you are making. Acknowledge and celebrate it. New work or money related opportunities to be explored. Taking a practical and methodical approach, especially in career, business or finance related projects. Slow and steady wins the race.

Overall, this month brings healing, progress and integration. Progress is definitely being made. It’s your perspective and judgements that may be clouding your view.

Remember this is a general reading. Take what resonates and reject the rest. If anything does resonate and you would like to book a personal email reading then you can find out more here. The Romance Angels card message can be found here.

Sunday Soul Note: You are the best spiritual tool you have

chanelmarie

You’re wondering if you’re using the right crystal to heal your broken heart. You’re wondering if you should be doing the burning ritual tonight or last night. You’re wondering why you keep seeing 1010 wherever you go. You’re wondering if you’re doing it.  Yet, if you are following the guidance that comes from within…….

You are doing it right! 

There are no wrong ways or right ways if you are following the guidance that comes within. No comparison required when rewriting or reconnecting with your soul story.

This is because the magic, power and beauty do not lie solely in the crystals, manifestation techniques or healing sessions.

The magic, power and beauty lies in You too.

Probably more than you could ever imagine.

Tools and practices, such as crystals, for example, are great for helping us heal, align, manifest or protect your energy. However, the real test will come in the absence of these tools. In the heat of the moment when there’s no time for yoga, meditation or a quick pull of your Oracle cards. In those moments you are left with just one resource. Just one beautiful gift:

You!

Therefore, the connection you have with your whole self is key.

Knowing the voice of your intuition versus the voice of fear. Being able to decipher the subtle clues that your body gives you in the moment. Knowing what your energy feels like so that you can recognise when what you’re feeling is not your own.

On my own path and through the readings I’ve given to women, I’ve learnt that all of what we experience, is helping us reconnect with our true selves, from the inside out.

Whereas the spiritual tools, sessions and practices are amazing if they are not supporting you in remembering all that comes from within you. Then what are they doing for you?

The 4 keys to manifesting + how I used them to manifest free training with a global brand

Copy of Services - AR (1).png

I’m delighted to announce that I’m now a certified OPI GelColor nail tech!

What’s even better is that I manifested the course absolutely FREE! Yep, free training with the world’s leading nail brand! Here’s how it all came about…..

After qualifying as a beauty therapist I decided that I wanted to begin by specialising in nails. I’ve always loved experimenting with colour and sparkles on my own nails. Loving the way you can complement your mood or add a little something extra to your outfit, just by painting your nails. So it seemed like a no-brainer.

However, as any nail tech knows there are so many different gel nail brands out there. So for a new nail tech like me, making a decision isn’t easy.

After taking advice from nail techs and trying out the big brands for myself, I came up with a list and enlisted my spiritual team to assist me in making a decision. How?

I asked for a sign.

A sign to decide which brand is best for me to train with and use on the natural nails of you lovely lot!

All signs pointed to one brand + one training provider.


FOLLOWING THE SIGNS

Initially, I hadn’t intended to work with my spiritual team to manifest a free place on the course. All I wanted was to make the optimal choice when selecting a brand to work with and training provider to learn with. Yet, the Universe and God clearly had other ideas.

The next available course was being provided by Capital Hair + Beauty in Brighton on the coming Monday. It meant that I would have to take a day off work and make the trip up to Brighton by bus and train. However, I decided it was worth the trip and booked my place.

Although it wasn’t all plain sailing.


WHEN THINGS DON’T GO ACCORDING TO PLAN

On the day of the course I got up early made the trip up to Brighton. When I arrived I made my way to the coffee shop and went to check my phone to see which bus I needed to get to the venue. That’s when I noticed the missed call and voice message from the training provider.

The course had been cancelled.

Initially, I was calm and even joked with the receptionist that OPI should offer us a lamp or a free course as compensation! However, as the morning went on my ego kicked in:

‘You took a day off work for nothing.’

‘You trusted the signs, for what?’

‘Maybe beauty isn’t for you.’

However, one thing I’ve learnt is that when the ego pipes up:

Let it have its say. Then silence it with gratitude + prayer.

That night I took my own advice and surrendered. Prayed and affirmative prayer. Being sure to ask for what I wanted: To receive a full refund. To be fairly compensated. To be offered a place on the right course. Following my prayer, I contacted Capital about new dates for the course. Yet, I also felt guided to contact OPI about training with them directly and mention the cancellation that had occurred that day.

The very next day I received an email offering me a free place to train with OPI at one of their training venues. I also received a full refund from Capital and an OPI ProSpa kit (which is AHMAZING!)


THE OPTIMAL CONDITIONS FOR MANIFESTING

The lesson: The optimal conditions for manifesting my desires into reality involved surrender, prayer, intuition and action. And those conditions could help you too. Here’s how…..

  1. Surrender clears the decks. It involves letting go of control + anything else that creates resistance.
  2. Prayer re-establishes that connection to Source and it’s also where intentions are set.
  3. Intuition guides and protects. Sometimes it doesn’t make logical sense yet it leads you in the direction of your intention and prayers.
  4. Take inspired action towards making your prayers and intentions a reality. This creates the energy for synchronicity, divinely timed next steps and your intentions to unfold. The Universe and God will meet you each step of the way.

Now, along the way, there may be hiccups and minor setbacks, as my manifestation has shown. However, it’s worth remembering that everything will unfold in divine timing, so there is no need to hold on so tightly. In fact, I am sure that if I had been obsessing about getting a free place on the course things would have turned out a lot differently.

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.

crystals, Divine feminine, Intuition, Lapis Lazuli

Day 2: Lapis Lazuli

Intuition. It’s one of our greatest assets. Yet it’s one that many women have suppressed and denied due to betrayal, belittling and the pain that trusting it has caused them in the past. Much of which has come from people around them who simply do not get it or simply fear all things mystical.

Instead, we have been conditioned to trust logic, reason and outside opinion more than our own inner guidance system. Which for many has led to disconnection and dis-ease within and without.

Thankfully, today more and more women (and men) are awakening to the beauty that lies within. Using tools, spiritual practices and rituals to support them in fine-tuning their intuition.

Crystals are one such tool that you can incorporate into your daily and spiritual practice in order to strengthen that connection within. Enabling you to feel the subtleties in energy and that pull that comes from within.


LAPIS LAZULI

There are a fair few crystals that you can use to enhance your intuitive abilities. Amethyst is one such crystal and would probably be the most obvious choice. After all, it’s known for it’s relaxing benefits. Helping to alleviate the systems of stress, anxiety and ‘monkey mind’. Each being conditions that can exacerbate those feelings of dis-ease and disconnection, which create the feeling of distance or separation from your intuition and soul.

However, the crystal in focus here is Lapis Lazuli. A stone that has been revered throughout time:

  • Queen Cleopatra wore it as eye makeup.
  • Buddhists who recommend it for promoting inner peace + freedom of negative thought.
  • Mystics + crystal enthusiasts who believe that it facilitates the connection between the mystical + material world.
  • Revered throughout time as a stone of wisdom, truth and enhancing your intuition.

Making it a must-have for any Sacred Beauties who are ready to re-awaken, re-connect with and fine-tune her intuition.


SIMPLE + EFFECTIVE SUGGESTIONS FOR WORKING WITH LAPIS LAZULI

Carry it with you in a pouch with other crystals that promote the energy conducive for connecting to your intuition. Particularly when you are walking into environments where you want to see the truth and be able to connect to the truth within yourself, bringing this forward in an authentic way.

Meditate with it in your hand in order to promote peace within and connect to your own inner guidance within. It will also help to open the third eye. However, I don’t recommend forcing this to happen.

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.

Learn 3 simple steps to increase your intuition

From a young age, I knew that I was able to see and feel things that not everybody else could. That ‘knowing‘ that a person wasn’t a very nice person would cause me to back away from them and cry if I was told that I had to be around them. As I got older that sense of ‘knowing‘ got stronger in the form of psychic dreams where I would see things before they happened or simply having that strong gut instinct when something was amiss.

No doubt this is something you’d expect from an intuitive with clairvoyant, clairsentient and clairaudient abilities. However, for many years I struggled to trust my intuition which would often lead me down the road of pain, heartache and drama.

My experience of having this strong sense of ‘knowing‘ is something that’s familiar to many people. As is that feeling of not knowing how to trust your intuition when it rises up to your attention. So, in this article, I’ll share with you my top suggestions for learning how to trust and make better use of your intuition.


WHAT IS INTUITION?

I consider the intuition to be the voice of the soul. With your soul being that all-knowing aspect of ourselves that guides us to experience, learn and embody in this lifetime. In order to sufficiently guides us, it speaks to us through us through our intuition.

You may often hear intuition referred to as our internal guidance system because the wisdom and guidance it brings us comes from within.


HEAD + HEART: LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO

I view your head as being that more logical part of ourselves. That aspect of ourselves that likes to keep us safe yet has a funny way of going about it. One thing it does it remember all of the times when you’ve tried and failed, bringing them back into your consciousness when you try something new or similar to that which you’ve tried before. Therefore you could say that it tends to be a little fearful at times, especially in comparison to the heart.

In contrast, I see the heart as more of rebel and it’s connected to your intuition. It seeks love, connection, expansion, adventure and new experiences. It’s that place where you experience that subtle pull toward something or someone, yet don’t know why. That place of knowing.

As you can imagine the way that they communicate is different with one feeling fearful or restrictive and the other feeling joyful or expansive. You tend to find that the heart steps forward first (that initial idea or decision to try something new) and the mind follows, usually with the reason why the new course of action isn’t a good idea.

Neither is right or wrong. It just depends on what you’re working towards or what you are giving yourself permission to experience.


THE LANGUAGE OF YOUR BODY

Our feelings and emotions will frequently manifest in the body. I recall a time when I started a new job and by midday, I had a headache and was throwing up. Some would say it’s down to nerves, yet the horrible time and experiences that I had at this workplace tell a different story. Also, the fact that I also would get a sudden headache or bout of sickness when working in an environment that was not right for me.

Headaches and sickness are my body’s way of saying that something is amiss. On the contrary when something or someone is a good fit for me I feel a little glow around my heart. So, listening to your body works for the positive and negative.

Your emotions and body may speak to you in a different way. One way to learn the language of your body is to become more aware, doing so by keeping a reflective journal of your interactions with others and in different places. Jot down how felt and any sensations in your body. Over time you are likely to notice patterns and this will help you to understand what your body is communicating with you. You may even find that as you think of key people you’ve encountered they remind you of other people you’ve known or you have an image of them come to mind. How you felt about that person or your experience of them can be a sign of how this new person is going to be in your life.

So you can see that taking the time to reflect in this way can bring much to the surface that supports you in your daily life and decision making.


DISCONNECT FROM ALL OF THAT NOISE

Learning to trust your intuition takes practice as you need to familiarise yourself with how it communicates with you. Therefore, taking time out to step away from the noise so that you can practice hearing the messages is key. Meditation is the obvious way to do that and it may require you to give yourself permission to hear the messages. If it resonates ask the Archangels Raziel or Chamuel to support you in connecting to your heart space and being open to receiving messages. Allow yourself to be quiet and still, allowing images and words to drift in and out of your mind’s eye. Keep a pen and paper close by so that you can jot down anything that really resonates with you. Do this often enough and you’ll increase that connection to your intuition, as well as learning it’s language inside out.


ARE YOU READY TO FURTHER DEVELOP YOUR INTUITION?

Any of these suggestions can be used and tweaked to support you in strengthening your intuition, as well as using it to it’s fullest potential. Doing so in a way that guides you to make aligned decisions and achieve your life goals.

Read this when it feels like your intuition guided you in the wrong direction

Dear Beautiful Soul

Here’s a little message for you if you’re struggling with trusting your intuition, especially if you feel that she led you down a yucky path the last time you followed her lead…….

I often hear people say:

“I followed my intuition and it still went fucking wrong.”

Ever felt that way or said something like that? Me too!

Yet here are the things that I’ve learnt to be true: Our soul guides our intuition. Our soul doesn’t have quite the same concept of right and wrong that we do. The soul’s aim is to guide us to awaken, which involves:

  • Learning the lessons we came here to learn
  • Having the experiences we need to have and agreed to in our soul contract (soul contract is a whole new one for another time)

These experiences help us grow, awaken from the inside out. Shed the BS, integrate the lessons + indulge in the blessings.

In doing so we get closer to and finally arrive at the places we’ve been visualising, snuggle in the arms that we’ve been dreaming of and become the women we’ve been crushing on, or even better.

It’s all a journey. A beautiful, sometimes challenging and frustrating game of life. And even when it doesn’t feel like it or even when it doesn’t make sense the soul, your intuition, these chicks know the way.

Following your intuition isn’t just about sunshine and rainbows it’s about growth, unlocking the key to your heart and remembering who you were created to be and what the hell you came here to do. And sometimes that path is murky at first. Then it’s all worth it.

It’s just a matter of perspective.

A case of believing that life is happening to you or that life is happening for you.

In the case of the latter you step closer to the beauty and inner workings that your soul wants you to see.

With much love
