Psychics: The New BFF of Millennials, Boss Ladies + Celebs

Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of TESTIMONIALS (2)

There was once a time when all talk of psychics, mystics and tarot readers were taboo. A mere mention of having a reading with a psychic would put you in the firing line for eye rolling or ridicule.

However, these days everyone from millennials and badass women starting their own empire right through to celebrities have a psychic, tarot reader, medium or healer on speed dial.

So, why are professional, ambitious and successful women choosing to work with psychics?

Today, life seems to be filled with uncertainty. Yet people are feeling the pressure to be more, do more and achieve more. With that people are feeling more stressed and worried about the future than ever before. So, when people go to psychics they are not just looking for predictions. They are seeking advice on HOW to fulfil their potential and become a better version of themselves.

With that in mind, here are just some of the ways that a psychic can support you in bettering your personal and professional life:

CLARITY
When you have a reading the psychic is tuning into your energy and the energy around your situation. This means that they are able to see the unseen, eg: hidden agendas, silent truths, opportunities and possibilities. These are all things that you probably won’t see because you are right in the middle of your story and situation, as well as feeling stressed by the whole thing. By making the unseen seen you get a sense of clarity and direction that supports you in making decisions that are aligned with your goals.

TOOLS FOR SUCCESS 
Gone are the days when psychics would simply reel off a list of predictions that would either be what you wanted to hear or not. The modern psychic will also offer you tools and practices that you can use to:

  • Dissolve any blocks that have been identified
  • Better align you with attracting what you want, eg: love or dream job
  • Give you a boost in the area where you feel in lack, eg: confidence, self-love
  • Support you in letting go of what doesn’t serve you

And that’s just for starters.

In essence, a psychic doesn’t just tell you what’s happening or coming up. They can offer you tools that you can use to help yourself to achieve your full potential. Think of it as mystical self-help and personal development.

OVERCOME YOUR BLOCKS
A psychic can also highlight the blocks that are standing in the way of you being and creating what you want, eg: fear, insecurity, resentment, co-dependency and other toxic factors. By recognizing these blocks the psychic can support you in letting go and dissolving anything that is not serving you. For many women who find themselves resisting change or repeating patterns, this can be the game-changer. This is because it guides them in letting go of the past and embracing, as well as creating their future.

MAXIMISE ON YOUR SUCCESSES
Women especially can be guilty of putting a lot of pressure on themselves to achieve and be all things to all people. Then, when things are not going to plan or they experience stagnation in an area of their life they beat themselves up. When this happens there becomes this intense focus on what’s not going right or your failures. During a reading, the psychic can highlight your successes, your gifts and talents, including your own psychic or spiritual gifts. Some of these successes, talents and gifts may be undiscovered, unnoticed or neglected. However, once revealed may leave you feeling inspired and motivated to act upon them. In some cases, opening you up to a world of new opportunities and positive changes.

CONFIRMATION
Intuition and that gut-feeling is a gift that God bestowed upon us all. However, what tends to happen is that you’ll get the intuitive hunches and be too scared to act on them or simply not know how. A psychic can confirm those intuitive hunches which, in the first instance, help you feel you are not going crazy and in the second instance can begin that process of looking deeper into the situation. On the flip side, a psychic can also confirm that you’re taking steps in the right direction, even when it doesn’t feel like it. They can then offer you tools and guidance that supports you in strengthening your position.


FINAL THOUGHTS

Ultimately, people from all walks of life are working with psychics and tarot readers because they are aware that there is more wisdom out there to be accessed. Therefore, if you are feeling lost yet do not feel that you know how to access that wisdom, much of which already lies within you, a psychic can support you to do so. In the process, alleviating that sense of feeling lost and offering you a sense of direction, as well as clarity, that you were previously lacking.

Working with a psychic can really provide that unique opportunity to tap into your own magic.

All of this supports you in becoming your best self and creating a better life. And what’s not to love about that?

I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences of working with a psychic. For those of you who haven’t worked with a psychic: What stops you? Comment below.

Soul Note: People are mirroring to you how you feel about yourself.

“People will mirror to you exactly how you feel about yourself.”

That’s a truth bomb right there.

You can try, as you may, to cover it all up with affirmations, crystals, mantras, positive quotes and high-vibe books.

It won’t last long though.

Your internal landscape: How you feel and think about yourself, your life, your skills, business and gift on the inside will be the energy that you manifest and attract from.

Attracting anger on the outside? What are you angry about on the inside?

Attracting jealousy? What part of you is not owning your jealousy and competitiveness?

What’s the answer?

Take ownership + responsibility for what’s going on on the inside: Your thoughts. Your feelings. Start changing your internal landscape: The energy and mindset together.

Don’t do it for one or two days. Be consistent. Use awareness to catch yourself in the moment. Work with someone you trust, eg: A friend, healer, psychic, mentor……who will support you and not just tell you what you want to hear.

Do the work!

When I started taking responsibility for the part I was playing in the dramas that were playing out in my life, things began to shift.

There was one moment when I realised that I was playing a part in why my relationship had come to an end and why we went round in circles.

That moment was crushing.

However, it was also a moment of awakening. One that led to a breakthrough. The tools and people to support me transform from the inside out appeared. It was as if the heavens anticipated that moment and had lined up all I needed to guide me out of the darkness.

In the months that followed, I was confronted with many truths and realisations. Some handled with more ease and grace than others. Yet the more work I did from the inside out the more I felt like me. Although a much better version.

So, rather than just complaining about the shit that’s hitting the fan, the people who are not supporting you and the things that are not going your way, look within. Often what’s happening on the outside is a reflection of what’s going on on the inside.

Happy Sunday xo

New Moon Time: Step into the real You!

chanelmarie

And what a hell of a new moon this one is.

Over the last few days, I’ve been going through a bit of an energy clearing. Initially, I thought it was a bug due to the sudden change in weather. On remembering the forthcoming New Moon eclipse, I knew this was a purging of energy. An upgrade was on the cards and from the conversations, I have been having it would seem that I am not the only one experiencing the purge.

So, what’s the deal with this new moon?

Intuitively I’m feeling that as much as it’s about calling in the new; which is typical to new moons. It’s also about preparing yourself energetically and mentally for what it is that you want to experience.  Ultimately, it’s about stepping into the real you.

For those of light warriors and hot mess goddesses of light, it’s also about us stepping fully into our light. No more pussyfooting around it’s all or nothing now.

Trust me, I’m getting the universal kick up the bum too. #togetherwerise

In order to step up, you also have to do some clearing out of the old, which can often live you in this space of limbo between the old and new. Thankfully, the New Moon will support us to close that gap by working with it to begin that process of visioning who it is that you want to be!

Obviously, you can think about the things that you want to manifest and experience but this moon is more about YOU! Who you are becoming and who you want to become. In some cases, who you are currently moulding into isn’t necessarily who you desire to be. If that’s the case, it’s as good a time as any to make that change!

How to make the most of it

Be super clear about what it is that you want to experience and call into your life. This isn’t a time for being modest or playing small either. Dream big yet be sure to make it all manageable for yourself, as well as calling in necessary support, to avoid feeling overwhelmed or giving up at the first hurdle.

Cos there will always be hurdles!

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What is feasible to call in, experience and step into over the coming months?
  • Then take it long term: What do you want to experience further down the line?
  • What can you do to align with the woman that lives that life?

The key message coming through is: The work you do on yourself is an inside job yet it will resonate on the outside too.

Lately, I’m coming across a few women wanting to make changes to their outer appearance too. Think diets, new clothes and upping their beauty game. If that’s you then you go for it. Don’t let people deceive you into thinking that it’s not important. If it’s important to you and is being guided to up your game:

Go for it! This is all about you stepping into the woman that you were created to be.

Leo energy is bold, proud and doesn’t mind standing out from the crowd. I mean just look at Jlo and Madonna. Both are unafraid to change their image or look their best!

And, it goes without saying that it’s a time to set intentions. With the vibe of Leo being bold, fun, creative, joy and expressive then it’s a no-brainer that your intentions will be to do with what brings you in alignment with all of that!

Ultimately…….

You will find that some doors are closing and others are opening. Will you keep banging on or returning to the door that’s closed or the ones that are opening up? Often to do the latter requires a new You. Will you let the new You emerge?

This New Moon is really all about You! It’s about getting yourself aligned and feeling good from the inside out. So, whatever is falling apart or whoever is drifting away: Let it!

If you need a hand, I am at the end of an email, ready to help you to help yourself! This is your time, pretty lady!

With love

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 claircogziance – ‘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 extra sensory 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 have 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. They 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 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 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, channelling 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 some times 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.

Aura cleansing with Selenite 

On a daily basis you encountering many different people, both directly and indirectly. Each person bringing their own energy into your space. Sometimes that energy feels good and other times it feels pretty bloody awful. However, it’s possible that you’re not even aware of the subtle exchanges in energy until it takes its toll on your body. Manifesting itself in the form of headaches, random aches and pains or stress.

As tempting as it is to lock your self away from the harsh energies it’s not feasible. Nor is it feasible to be going around Saging your work environment or yourself whilst travelling on the tube. Thankfully, Mother Earth has gifted us with a beautiful solution in the form of Selenite crystals.

Selenite is named after the Greek Moon Goddess, Selene and has become a crystal must-have for modern women across the globe. Known for being a high vibrational crystal that can connect it’s owner to the higher realms, eg: the Angels and your spirit guides, this crystal exudes beauty, serenity and uplifting vibrations. It’s also a cleansing crystal that you can work with to remove blocks in your energy field. This makes for a relaxing companion when meditating or when placed underneath your pillow at night, invoking a vibration of peace, calm and serenity.

In fact, there are many different ways that you can incorporate Selenite into your life and reap the benefits of it’s gentle, cleansing energy. So continue reading to find out more and select your perfect way to bring Selenite’s positive energy into your life.

1. 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 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 trsansmuted 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.

2. Meditation
At the end of a day or if I’m feeling a little stressed I like to either hold my Selenite wand in my hand or place it over my heart centre. As I do this I go into a meditation where I visualise the light from the Selenite filling my body and dissolving away the stresses of the day. However, there are also times when I’ll just hold my Selenite or place it over my heart chakra and just let it do it’s thing. Inviting the Angels, especially Archangel Michael to dissolve the cords, hooks and attachments to what isn’t serving me.

3. Relaxation
After a stressful day where I’ve been in my head far too much I like to place a small piece of Selenite on my head or on top of my head. Selenite resonates strongly with the crown chakra and is excellent for clearing energy in that area, whilst opening your mind for expansion. Often I say nothing and just let Selenite work it’s beautiful magic, whilst I try to let go.

Selenite care
Selenite is a very porous crystal which means that it can dissolve in water. Now many say that it is self cleansing, which I have also found to be the case. However, I will often Sage it or clear it through intention and reiki, just to ensure it’s energetically squeaky clean. I also like to cleanse and charge it under the light of the sun and moon.

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.

Look forward to hearing your experiences.

JUNE VIBES

“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.

With love
