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.

With love + gratitude

Healing with the Angels

I didn’t choose Angelic Healing (Reiki). It chose me.

You’ll often hear practitioners say a similar thing. Having been introduced to a particular modality at a pivotal time in their life. I was much the same.

Although I’d never heard of Angelic Reiki it popped up in my search as I looked for a Reiki level 1 course one summer.

It was never my intention to share it with others. In fact, I simply wanted to use it to feel more calmer, relaxed and grounded in my stressful job.

Little did I know that Angelic Reiki would take me on a journey of karmic soulmate + past life revealing + clearing, heart healing, self love, clearing money energy blocks, physical healing……. Healing myself before helping others.

The reason I share it now because I wholeheartedly believe in it.

WHAT I’VE LEARNED FROM MY ANGELIC REIKI PRACTICE
With Angelic Reiki I’ve found that even if you don’t always feel the energy shifts within, during a session, the healing is still being done on a cellular and energetic level. Maybe releasing you from a connection in another space or time.

The Angels know where to go.

Your soul knows what you are ready to release. Facilitating this for your own growth, expansion, alignment and wellbeing.

What I’ve found to be key when it comes to healing is awareness by which you notice that is coming up for you after the session. Then there’s having this readiness to do the work because healing is work YOU do with the Angels.

I always say:

“Healing (with the Angels) doesn’t make all your shit just disappear. Sometimes there is work on your part to be done too.”

Often things will be bought to the surface. People reflecting an age old story or belief will surface. Not to drag you down the same road but to make you aware of your own BS.

The choice you make is to continue playing the game with the cards you know or play with new rules and new cards.

Be aware and take action if you want to heal, align and evolve.

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.

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.

#fullmoonvibes: Letting Go + Reinventing

When you let go it makes sense to fill the space with positive energy. Energy that feels good and is in alignment with the real you. Irrespective of the opinions of others.

A bit like the Leo Queen herself, Madonna. She’s reinvented herself many times over the years and is never afraid to be herself.

What’s stopping you from being seen and from showing up as You?

The woman you are becoming is not afraid to show up as her best self. She isn’t afraid of being seen and she isn’t hiding in the shadows.

What do you need to release, cease doing, saying or telling yourself in order to be in alignment with her?

And for the guys eyeing this. This applies to you too. You’re all seeing this for a reason.

Don’t rush. Take your time. Change doesn’t happen overnight. You may even need to dig beyond the limiting stories you’ve inherited and labels you have placed on yourself before you reconnect with the real you.

With love ✌💋

3 ways to be more spiritual in your beauty routine + heal your relationship with yourself

When we talk about conscious beauty our thoughts normally go towards vegan and ethical beauty products or eating mindfully and healthily. Yet, the kind of conscious beauty that I want to focus upon today involves mind, energy and emotions.

Over the last few years the world of beaury has changed with more and more people taking a more conscious approach. Rather than being seduced by the brand + packaging we are looking more closely at the ingredients and we are asking questions about how ethical the brand is.

But, what if we could take this a step further by using our beauty routine as a way to consciously align our mind, energy and emotions to heal our relationship with ourselves? In today’s blog post I’ll share some tips on how you can do exactly that.


DEFINING SPIRITUAL BEAUTY 

Spiritual Beauty involves going within to do the inner work in order to heal your relationship with yourself and step out of the dark into your light. The tools I use include energy healing, spiritual guidance (including mindset, mystical wisdom and ritual) and outer beauty treatments.


SPIRITUAL BEAUTY RITUAL

Decide

Set an intention for your beauty routine. Decide how you want to feel and how you want to show up in your world that day. For example, you may have an important interview and you want to feel confident. Invite the Angels, God or whoever you believe in to support you in aligning with this energy through the power of prayer or setting an intention.

Prayer: “Thank you for blessing my day ahead and everyone that I meet. Thank you for blessing me and filling me with (insert what you want to receive).” For added emphasis and energy alignment choose a crystal that matches the energy of your intention, eg: Green Aventurine for luck or Mangano Calcite for self love.


Affirmations

Have affirmations close by and say these as you are applying your make-up in the mirror. Your affirmations can be a mix of things that you love and honour about yourself, alongside those that align with one specific thing that you are working on manifesting into your life.

Tip: Begin your affirmations with the words “I am“. It is believed that whatever follows the words “I am” are instantly affirmed by God and you will become that. Read more here.


Awareness

As you apply your makeup begin to notice where your thoughts go. Notice whether or not those thoughts are self-affirming or devaluing you. It’s possible that when your attention moves towards a particular part of your face or body you feel a shift in your energy, eg: butterflies or tightness in your tummy.

Is this an indication that you need to love this part of your body more? Are their thoughts and beliefs about this part of your body that devalue you?

Tip: Acknowledge the energy, thought and feeling. Reframe and affirm what you want to think and feel about that part of your body instead. Where possible use the word “I am” and if it’s hard to believe the new affirmation trying saying “I am giving myself permission to let go of the belief that……” and follow this with “I am willing to believe that…..”


ARE YOU READY TO EXPERIENCE SPIRITUAL BEAUTY?

Take what resonates from the practice of Spiritual Beauty and don’t feel the need to do it all at once. Start with one of the actions and focus on it over a sustain period of time. On the other hand you may prefer to take one activity and make it into a weekly ritual. Choose what feels good, aligned and manageable for you.

Be patient with yourself too. Whereas you might be able to change some beliefs that you have about yourself quickly, there may be others that take more time. Often these beliefs and thoughts have been engrained in you over a period of time. Affirmed over and over again through experiences and interactions with others, sometimes since childhood. In some cases you have even inherited these beliefs from your your parents and taken them on as your own. Therefore, the practice of Spiritual Beauty will take practise and consistent effort.

I’d love to hear how you get on so feel free to comment below or message me personally.

With love from me to you xo

How to overcome the negativity that comes at you when you’re upgrading your life

People often say that once they start taking steps to upgrade their life, think positively + live a more spirit led life, more negativity shows up in their life.

They feel like they’re walking on cloud 9 only to find Negative Nelly, Jealous Julie, Doubting Debbie and Drama Queen Dawn greeting them at every corner. Snatching that cloud right from under their feet.

Why is this?

Well, I’ve learnt that Negative Nelly, Jealous Julie, Doubting Debbie and Drama Queen Dawn were also within me. I say within me because each time you start upgrading there will be a new Negative Committee ready and waiting for you.

Why? Because they are those parts of you that you need to see, relinquish and, if needs be, heal in order to fully upgrade and enjoy it to the max.

So, what do you do when you meet the Negative Crew? Here’s what I suggest:

TAKE THE LESSON

Ask what this encounter wants to teach you about yourself: What it is that you need to let go of and/or whom you need to forgive? Be prepared that the person to be forgiven is You! Think about all those places and situations in your life where you are showing up as less than your best and highest self. Then get to work on changing that.


PASS THE TEST

It could be that you are being tested by this encounter. Being invited to walk your talk and practise what you preach. So, take all that wisdom that lies with in, make use of those tools and practices and connect with spirit to help you ace that test.


REACH FOR THE BLESSING

The blessing being that you have been given this opportunity to overcome the hurdles within that separate you from your greatness and your soul dreams. It’s a sign from spirit that you are on track. That you are making moves in the right direction. Take the blessing and celebrate the progress you are making.


So, don’t be discouraged when the negativity comes to greet you. Don’t let it take you off your path and lead you back down into that tunnel of darkness. And if you do start heading back toward that tunnel be quick catch yourself and turn back around.

Use your wisdom and clean up whatever is coming up for you so you can become the person you were created to be and live the life you desire to live.

This requires practice at first yet it will get easier and you’ll get quicker at it over time.

You’ve got this!


HOW’S YOUR UPGRADE GOING?

Are you finding it a challenge to stay positive? What ‘negatives’ are coming up to greet you as you upgrade your life? How are you overcoming this? Leave your thoughts and comments below. You can reach me privately here too.

Full Moon in Taurus spotlight: Relationships, Beauty + Money

The relationships that stand the test of time are those built upon solid foundations.

Relationships of all kinds are up for review with the energy of the Full Moon in Taurus, with Venus Retrograde still sitting in the background.

I’ve been taking inventory of mine. Building upon the intentions set at the time of the previous New Moon and beginning of the Venus Retrograde. Those relationships that were obscuring the view have been lovingly moved along. Only those built upon solid foundations will naturally follow me on my onward journey.

The message for this time is typical of a Full Moon, yet all the more prominent at this time:

Don’t be afraid to let go of what or who no longer fills your cup.

Taurus energy is grounded. Hard working. Whilst also enjoying the finer things in life, including looking good.

Do you feel worthy of the good things in life?

Do you give yourself permission to look and feel beautiful on the outside too?

The affirmations of:

  • I am worthy.
  • I am deserving.
  • I am more than enough.

All come into play when Taurus energy is around. Because an aligned Taurus soul believes in themselves!

Ultimately, allow the Full Moon to shed light on what is ready to be released in order for you to expand and become the best version of you. And remember as you give yourself permission to do this you will unconsciously give others the permission to do the same.

With love xo

Transformation. Evolving. Dissolving resistance at the Full Moon.

ANGELIC REIKI

The new season has brought with it the energy of change and transformation. Something that many of us at experience at our own level.

I’ve found that transformation, growth and evolving will bring with it that sudden rush of excitement, wonder, curiosity, and hopefulness. This is often followed by resistance. Fear. Guilt.

The happy hormones take a break and give your cells some time to catch up with the all the newness that you are conjuring up!

In my own world, I have tended to find this a week where resistance tends to be at it’s strongest under the gaze of the Full Moon.

The Full Moon heightens our emotions. Bringing to the surface all of the things and people that are in opposition to that which we want to experience, especially in relation to the intentions set at the time of the New Moon. So, this has become a time that I have used this time to “go with the flow” as much as I possibly can. Rather than resisting what is coming up, I’ve tried to flow with it and allow it to be released.

So, I know that sometimes is much easier said than done!

This is especially the case when the old ways, old faces and old places resurface. Reminding you of what needs to be released or shifted to support you in aligning with the new.

To support you through this I’ll share my own magical keys for working with the energy of the Full Moon to facilitate transformation and evolving:

TUNE IN

Your body will tell you when it needs to rest. Your intuition will let you know when it’s time to pause or move forward. Your soul team will guide you towards what is for you right now. Tune in. Do so with meditation, prayer, writing or awareness.

PRAYER

A simple prayer focused towards the solution. One of my favourites is:

“Thank you for showing me where to go, what to do and what to say to whom.”

Another of my favourites is: “I surrender.” Two simple words that can lighten the load. An invitation to God and soul team to take the reins.

CONNECTION

Connection to self or like-minded people. Somehow they both tend to lead back to one another. To fill you up and raise your vibration. To bring you back to centre when you fall.

In the Full Moon ebook, I have also included further tools and practices from my own spiritual vanity case.

I will leave you here, yet I truly hope that you will pivot towards releasing (or whatever else you feel you need right now) so that you can stick with your new intentions, desires, and transformation.

If you could do with a little something extra I will share some notes of inspiration here too.
