Monthly reading: Angel Messages for November

Welcome to the first of my readings for the month ahead.

HOW DO I WORK?

I connect with my spiritual guidance team and the Angels to bring through any messages that are wanting to be shared at this time. I use the cards as a tool to offer more insight and guidance that can support you, as well as confirm what I’m feeling, seeing and hearing psychicly. Therefore, the interpretations of the cards may differ from what appears in the guidebook.


THE CARDS

The deck I’m using is Angel Prayers by Kyle Gray.

Open your heart – AA Chamuel

Thank you Chamuel for removing the barriers around my heart.

Crystals: Rose Quartz + Green Aventurine

Spiritual Abundance

Thank you Angels for blessing me with infinite abundance.

Spiritual Gifts – AA Raziel

Thank you Raziel for helping me channel my gifts and talents.

Crystals: Lapis Lazulli + Amethyst


SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE FOR NOVEMBER

Firstly, the appearance of 2 Archangels suggests that there is a lot of Angelic support to be found this month, including support from your loved ones in Heaven.

At this time in history and this time of year the veil is getting thinner. More of us are opening up to spirituality than ever before, be it through mindfulness, meditation, reiki, crystals or indeed awakening our own spiritual gifts. This is raising the energy levels and making it easier for spirit, including guides, Angels and loved ones to be seen, felt and heard.

With this in mind, there comes that sense of being more open to connecting with spirit for support and asking for their guidance.

Archangel Chamuel is the angel of love and relationships. Resonating strongly with the heart chakra I get the sense that he is providing support that enables you to let go of any guilt, anger, bitterness, resentment, jealousy and other lower vibrational emotions. Why? Because it’s often this emotions that stand in the way of us experiencing healing, abundance, love, joy and all of the other things we desire.

So, don’t be surprised if you are triggered a little more often than you like, especially by those out to deceive, bitch, bully or just generally be negative. These triggers are showing you what you yourself need to work on or release.

Abundance comes in many forms and this card brings forth the energy of focusing upon your blessings way more than on the negatives.

I know that this can be a challenge, especially when your current reality is looking much less than you would desire. However, it is through gratitude and love that you raise your own vibration. So, where you can, pivot towards joy, love or whatever else feels good.

Being next to the Open Your Heart card I feel that this card is reminding you that when you release lower vibrational energy you need to replace it with what you do want to experience. This completes the Letting go and receiving cycle. It also supports you in refocusing your mind on what you do want to experience and facilitates the energy of creation.

This card also is a good omen for finances. I’m given the sense of windfalls, raise or promotion. With the latter I hear: If you don’t ask you won’t get. So, if you have been thinking about asking for a raise, going for a promotion or expanding your career in a new direction now is a good time to get it all moving. With the spiritual support mentioned earlier it’s clear you will be guided.

I’m also getting the sense of thinking ahead to what abundance you want to experience in 2018 and to start taking action (Divinely inspired) towards it. Remember spirit clearly have your back.

More and more people are remembering their spiritual gifts and this card is recognising that. Yet, Raziel is also bringing forth the idea that you are to use this knowledge and your gifts wisely. Also, working with love and integrity.

Raziel is a wonderful guide to work with, along with Muriel if you want to develop your gifts further. If you ask then they will guide you to the classes, workshops, books and mentors who can guide you on this phase of your learning.

However, what Raziel says is that you don’t have to be using your spiritual gifts to be doing spiritual work. He says that your clairsentience, clairvoyance, clairaudience, advanced intuition and healing can be put to use in many other ways. Supporting you in your daily life and personal healing, as well as helping you in your day job/career.

A perfect example of this can be seen in a previous teaching role where I would work and call in the Angels to clear the energy of my classroom and create a peaceful, harmonious environment for the children to learn. I had a “lively” class yet there would be many moments throughout the day where they would be working peacefully in class, calmly chatting to friends or completely focused on the work and choosing to work in silence.

The calming energy of the Angels really helped to bring peace, calm and harmony to the class environment.

This is just one example, yet I could site many, including using LOA and crystals to manifest new opportunities, raises and promotions. So, use your spiritual gifts wisely and know that your spiritual team can guide You, support you and lead you to what is for your Highest. Being sure to work with integrity each and every time.

Time to put your spiritual and creative gifts to good use. No more leaving them to lie dormant where nobody can see them.

Overall, this feels to be a month where you are putting in the groundwork for what you want to receive in the new year. The month of January being voiced to me clearly.


RUNES

Rune: Berkano

This rune symbolises the goddess, healing and fertility. The feeling around the appearance of the Berkano rune is to step into and awaken that goddess energy from within. Awakening your feminine gift of intuition (and your spiritual gifts) to guide you along your path. It very much brings that feel of walking With spirit. Do you give yourself permission to allow them to light your way and help you? There is also that feeling of transformational healing and this being an auspicious time for starting something. I hear “getting out of the rut“. It’s your time to shine.

Have an amazing month.

With love xo

The Law by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The sun may be clouded, yet ever the sun
Will sweep on its course till the cycle is run.
And when into chaos the systems are hurled,
Again shall the Builder reshape a new world.

Your path may be clouded, uncertain your goal;
Move on, for the orbit is fixed for your soul.
And though it may lead into darkness of night,
The torch of the Builder shall give it new light.

You were, and you will be : know this while you are.
Your spirit has traveled both long and afar.
It came from the Source, to the Source it returns;
The spark that was lighted, eternally burns.

It slept in the jewel, it leapt from the wave;
It roamed in the forest, it rose from the grave;
It took on strange garbs for long eons of years,
And now in the soul of yourself it appears.

From body to body your spirit speeds on:
It seeks a new form when the old one is gone:
And the form that it finds is the fabric you wrought,
On the loom of the mind, with the fiber of thought.

As dew is drawn upward, in rain to descend,
Your thoughts drift away and in destiny blend.
You cannot escape them; or petty, or great,
Or evil, or noble, they fashion your fate.

Somewhere on some planet, sometime and somehow,
Your life will reflect all the thoughts of your now.
The law is unerring; no blood can atone;
The structure you rear you must live in alone.

From cycle to cycle, through time, and through space,
Your lives with your longings will ever keep pace.
And all you that you ask for, and all you desire,
Will come at your bidding, as flames out of fire.

You are your own devil, you are your own God.
You fashioned the paths that your footsteps have trod:
And no one can save you from error or sin,
Until you shall hark to the spirit within.

Once list to that voice and all tumult is done,
Your life is the life of the Infinite One;
In the hurrying race you are conscious of pause,
With love for the purpose and love for the cause.

When the healing isn’t working.

ANGELIC REIKI (1)

When new people reach out to me wanting to know more about Angelic Reiki they usually tell me that they’ve tried some form of energy healing before and it didn’t work for them. Even I have been known to say that EFT and Theta simply do not work for me. The question is: Is that really true?

The reasons for believing this to be true are plentiful:

“They said they cleared my chakras but nothing has changed.”
“I didn’t feel anything.”
“Other people said that X happened but that didn’t happen to me.”
“Since the healing, I am feeling even worse than before I started.”

Now, although it is wholly possible that the healing didn’t work for you for whatever reason. In my own experience, this tends not to be the case and there are a fair few common reasons why it appears that the healing hasn’t or isn’t working.


COMPARISON

A common misconception is that when you work with crystals or have an energy healing session you are meant to feel or see things. It’s that idea that you are meant to have this instant and profound life-changing experience there and then. This misconception is often fuelled by the stories you read and hear about people having these huge epiphanies during or after a treatment. So, when this doesn’t happen for you it’s only natural that you think there is something wrong with you or that the treatment has failed. Yet, this is what I have learnt to be true:

The experience of another person is THEIR experience. Not yours!

Each person, based on their own energy, soul lessons and back-story will have an experience with energy healing that is unique to them. Therefore, what you experience is based on the healing that you are ready to receive at that moment in time. So, comparing your experience to that of another person doesn’t serve you in any way and can actually set you up for disappointment, as well as distracting you from doing your own inner work.


THE MAGIC CURE

Some people can expect energy healing to be this magic cure that takes away all of their problems, pains and issues. Sadly, it doesn’t work that way and what I learnt to be true is that:

Spiritual tools and healing practices don’t fix your problems. YOU do!

Instead what I have found is that energy healing practices and tools such as crystals will guide you towards what you need to work on or release. It can bring to the surface the emotions, wounds, root causes or lessons that your soul is ready for you to heal or let go of. In some cases, it may even reveal to you who or what it is that requires your forgiveness. However, you still have free will to choose to keep repeating the same habits and thoughts, as well as hold onto the stories or beliefs that keep you stuck.

There is that element of taking responsibility for your wellbeing and own healing. In doing so, you may find that you need to drop old habits, ways of thinking and being in order to detach from what’s fuelling the pain. Which is where mindset work can also be so complimentary to any inner work and energy healing work that you do for yourself.


IMPATIENCE

Impatience is another common factor for people feeling as if the healing doesn’t work. We live in this society where we want to see and experience rapid results, alongside instant transformation. Whereas this is possible for some, the truth is that sometimes healing takes its sweet time. This is because you receive the healing and insights that you are ready for at any particular stage in your life. Often to receive all of this transformation and insight all at once would be overwhelming. It may also lead you away from using your own wisdom and free will to make choices, learn lessons and naturally up-level. Basically, it will take the “fun” out of simply living and experiencing everything that life has to offer you. Would you really want that?

Also, what I have found is that some wounds run deep. They go back lifetimes and, in some case, can be generational and ancestral. Therefore, it is only natural that it may take some time for you to experience the full impact of the healing. How long it takes can often be down to your own resistance and if you are in impatience mode you can be slowing down the healing process.

I’ve often found that with hindsight I have been able to see that transformation did take place, starting on the inside first and over a period of time. Leading me to see that I have actually come a long way from my humble beginnings. All the healing process to unfold and I am sure that you can have that beautiful hindsight too.


ATTACHMENT

Often people will have an attachment to a specific outcome. So they book in for a session with the specific intention to clear the decks and manifest their dream lover. Then they focus specifically on this intention and becoming increasingly angry, irritated or annoyed that the dream lover isn’t anywhere to be seen. In the process of remaining attached to the outcome they miss the lessons and values they are gaining from all of this inner work and healing. It can also create more stress and resistance. Neither of which are complementary to healing or your general wellbeing.

A simple shift that I find helpful is to move from focusing on a specific outcome is to suspend all expectation and simply be open to receiving the best possible healing at that time. When you do this you will be guided to what you need to work on in order to reach your desired destination, if not somewhere 100 times better. It is this approach that opens you to receive what you need and the infinite possibilities around you, some of which cannot yet be seen by the naked eye.


QUIETLY BEHIND THE SCENES

Energy can be very subtle and that includes healing energy too. Just think about when you are manifesting your desires into reality. On the surface, it can look as if nothing is happening and you may even feel like nothing is happening. Yet behind the scenes, things are shifting and being reorganised. God, Angels and the Universe are working behind the scenes to align you and your desire so that you can receive it in ‘real’ time. It works like this with healing energy too. It can be subtle. Yet it is still working and you don’t have to have this profound, out of this world experience, to know this to be true.


OVER TO YOU…..

I hope that I have given you some light relief or some things to consider, at the very least.

Ultimately, what I want to convey is that you do not need to compare your healing journey to anybody else. Nor do you need to follow another person’s strategy or formula for healing. I’ve found that going where I am guided and holding the intention for the best possible healing to be received pays dividends. Even if those dividends are not seen, felt or experienced straight away.

And if it is no longer working for you that’s ok. Along your path, you’ll try and be guided to new practices, tools and teachers who are best placed to help you awaken to be the best version of you. You’ll be guided.

With much love as always….

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.

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.

With love

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 practise 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 practise 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.

If you would like support in developing your intuition or awakening your own psychic abilities, get in touch with me here.

Scorpio ‘Pink’ Full Moon: Heal + Transform

On the 29th/30th of April we have a full ‘pink’ moon in Scorpio. Hailed as a moon that is offering inside out transformation that opens the door to becoming the best version of you and manifesting those seeds of desire that you’ve planted. How can you personally make the most of this energy? Let’s find out as we explore the energy of this Full ‘Pink’ Moon in Scorpio.


A LITTLE BACKGROUND TO THIS FULL MOON

This Full Moon is meant to stir things up. Stirring it up and bringing them out into the open (or, at least for you to see) in order to begin that ripple effect of change + transformation. Something that is very much needed if you are to uplevel, become your best self and live a life that you love. Rather than a life that you pretend to love when you post happy pics on Instagram.

It’s meant to really wake you up to the truth that you’ve been avoiding, ignoring or pushing deep below the surface.

Much of what it’s stirring up are feelings, emotions, thoughts and beliefs related to Yourself. Particularly those that relate to how you show up in the world and in important relationships. Some of these things might include:

  • Jealousy
  • Envy
  • Greed
  • Neediness
  • Fakeness

Being a karmic year 11/2 you’re likely to find that what is coming up for you are things that have been plaguing you for most of your life. Those pesky repetitive patterns, cycles and behaviours that you keep you stuck in victim mode or in your comfort zone.

Are you ready to see + release them?

Yet, on the flip side Scorpio Full Moon energy is sexy and mysterious, as well as deeply intuitive too. All of which are energies that can be put to optimal use at this time, especially when navigating the beautiful world of romantic relationships.

On the other hand, maybe you need to remember how to be more sexy, mysterious in your daily life, whilst using the gift of intuition to feel you way into situations.

Which is it to be for you?

Scorpio Full Moon’s are a time for deep cleansing and healing. A real releasing of the things that stand in opposition of your transformation. Yet, when embraced can have the impact of leading you to the breakthrough and transformation that you’ve been waiting for.


WHY SHOULD I TAKE NOTICE OF THE FULL MOON?

You don’t have to take notice of the Full Moon and many people don’t. Blissfully living their lives unaware of the emotions, feelings and energy that comes up for and around them at this time.

Yet, for those who are willing it’s the optimal time for purging, letting go and forgiveness. All key ingredients for soul growth, personal development, healing and uplevelling in life.

Full Moon’s are like the harvest point of the moon cycle. The point where you can reap the rewards of the seeds of desire and intention that you have planted. Where those crops of desire are not ready to be harvested it becomes a time of reflection, introspection and release. A time when you use the gift of awareness to support you as you go within and identify:

  • What is ready to be released
  • Who you can forgive

This can make it an emotional time, especially for those who are moon sensitive, lightworkers/warriors, psychic, water signs or in the midst of a soul/spiritual awakening. You guys will most likely feel all the feels when the moon is full because the moon governs our emotions.

When the moon is Full it’s bright and it literally shines a light in and on the darkness. This is why you will often find that buried thoughts, feelings, memories and shadow parts of the self are more apparent under the Full Moon. These things become more obvious when our soul is ready for us to release those aspects that are standing in the way of us awakening, progressing or just simply moving on.

How will you respond to what’s coming up for you at this time?


WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

As Jay-Z said you can’t heal what you don’t reveal. The Scorpio Full Moon is doing a lot of revealing so you’re job is to be Aware.

Notice what is coming up for you at this time and over the last few days because this stuff is the dominant energy that you bring to every table that you sit at. It introduces in real time, through text and over social media, even if you haven’t been aware of it. This energy is contributing to and creating your current reality. Leading you to repeat the same patterns with different faces and in different places.

Some key questions to ask yourself might include:

  • What is ready to be released?
  • What isn’t really helping me to manifest what I want?
  • What am I going to do about it?
  • What is helping me to expand, heal and uplevel?
  • What are/is the lessons here?

Incidentally, this energy of release and transformation have been dominant themes in this week’s 5 days of divine messages with the cards over on my Instagram page. You may want to check it out for further insight and guidance.

Also, it helps to have that perspective that life is happening for you not to you. Just sit with that for a moment and notice how empowering that feels.


WHAT TOOLS CAN I USE TO SUPPORT ME?

Your best tool is your own commitment to change, healing and your own personal development. Are you really willing to face the truth? Are you really willing to take the necessary steps towards your own healing and transformation?

Some other tools include:


This gorgeous Full Moon really is here to help you to breakthrough and bring you back to yourself. Yet you have to be prepared to do your part too.

Healing is a process and what this Full Moon is doing is really peeling back the layers of the darkness and dislodging those limiting beliefs and fears. Something which I talk about more here. It’s up to you to decide how best to invest your time + resources to make the most of it.

“Crystal healing is the belief that the metaphysical energy of crystals + gemstones can assist in the healing of the emotional, spiritual & physical body.”

– Victoria Forster, Co-founder of Venusrox

I love this excerpt from an interview with Victoria Forster because she sums up crystal healing in such a simplistic way. Which is perfect because working with crystals is simple and, in my own experience, it is the simplest way to raise your vibration, whilst adding a little beauty and sparkle to your everyday life. However, with the multitude of books, courses, websites and products out there you would think that incorporating crystals into your everyday life is rocket science when really it doesn’t have to be.


HOW I GOT STARTED + BANISHING A CRYSTAL MYTH

When I first discovered crystals I was about 7 years old and was on a school trip to Chislehurst Caves. Whilst everybody else was buying novelty pencils and rubbers I was choosing the best Amethyst and Clear Quartz crystals for mum and me. Yet, it wasn’t until I was in university that I started to really get into them.

Beginning with using Rose Quartz to banish crippling period pain, boosting my confidence and attracting attention from male admirers. At the time, it was non-intentional and totally experimental. By that, I mean that I wasn’t setting an intention for how to work with my crystal and had no idea about the properties of Rose Quartz. However, the little Rose Quartz that I had borrowed from my mum, worked for me in the most beautiful, loving, intuitive and miraculous way.

For me, that is the beauty of crystals: They know exactly what you need, even if you don’t and are not even sure what to do in order to connect with them. This is because crystals will respond to your most dominant vibration (your energy). Lifting, balancing and giving you what you need energetically in order to move forward with a little more ease and grace. Therefore, I always feel that the key things you need when working with crystals are an open heart and an open mind, as well as a healthy dose of detachment.


CLEANSING YOUR CRYSTALS

It is important to cleanse your crystals before you use them. Even if they have been tucked away in your crystal box for some time, it is wise to perform a simple cleansing ritual because crystals store energy. Therefore, it is possible that your crystal may have absorbed energy that may not resonate with you.

There are many schools of thoughts, methods and suggestions for cleaning your crystals. Yet the ones that I subscribe to can be performed with ease and do not require lots of preparation or additional effort. Try one or all of the following and see which one floats your boat:
#1: Water

This is where I started, holding my crystals under running water with the intention of clearing the energy, and sometimes I would soak the crystals in water overnight.
#2: Sage

Pass the crystal through the smoke of Sage and saying an affirming prayer to clear the energy of the crystal. Sage has been used since ancient times, believed to remove negative energy and restore energetic balance within a space.
#3: Prayer and intention

Hold the crystal in your hand or by your heart and say a prayer of intention, speaking directly from your heart. One prayer that I have come across recently and absolutely love is this one from Energy Muse:

“I ask that the highest vibration of love+ light connect with my highest self to clear all unwanted energy + previous programming. I command these crystals to _____________. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

People often ask me how often they should be cleansing their crystals. My personal stance is that I clear the energy of the crystals each time I am working with it for something new. This way I clear all previous programming and any unwanted energy. In saying that, I also trust my intuition and the connection that I have with that crystal. Therefore, if I feel that the energy of the crystal is getting a little heavy or that it feel ‘weak’, for want of a better word, I clear the energy using the method that I feel drawn to at that time.

Despite the fact that I have completed crystal healing and reading courses, my interaction with my crystals is still based on my intuition and personal experiences. Sometimes I feel that this is best because the crystal is working with you and your energy, so what works for others may not necessarily work with you.


CRYSTAL MUST-HAVES

Choosing the right crystal for you tends to be a very intuitive process whereby the crystal will often choose you, connecting with your vibration. However, I have found over the years that there are crystals that I simply cannot live without and that I return to over again to support me in different areas of my life. These crystals are:
#1: Clear Quartz
Crystal all-rounder and tension reliever. It can also be used to amplify the energy of your intention + other crystals.
#2: Howlite
This crystal will bring a wave of calm when you are feeling a little stress or overwhelmed. It’s a great meditation companion.
#3: Rose Quartz
The infamous stone of love is a healing and soothing stone. Shows you your barriers to love + aids sleep.
#4: Black Tourmaline
A stone of protection that grounds and shields you from energy, especially negative energy, that’s not yours.
#5: Selenite
Your guardian angel in crystal form. This crystal cleanses your energy, unblocking that stuck energy + bringing a sense of calm.
#6: Citrine
More commonly known as the abundance stone as it can be used for manifesting abundance. Promotes confidence and positivity in the wearer.


INCORPORATING CRYSTALS INTO YOUR DAILY LIFE

There are many ways to incorporate crystals into your daily life and it really doesn’t have to be complicated. One of the most effective and easy ways that I find for doing this is wearing them in my bra. Although, you can carry your crystals in your pocket or handbag, as well as keeping them on your desk, altar, under your pillow or in a crystal grid. You may even want to hold a crystal in your hand whilst you are meditation or visualising in order to amplify the energy of your intention. This will be supportive in getting you in energetic alignment.


TAKE YOUR POWER BACK AT WORK

I’ve been fortunate enough to work in every single career field that I have wanted to, overcoming opposition, challenge and many nay-sayers. In addition to this, I’ve incorporated crystals into my law of attraction rituals and prayers, giving me a little energy boost and alignment.

I have also used crystals when I was having a hard time at work, especially when working in negative environments or people where it was essential that I stay in my own energy. Two crystals that I find really helps with this are Selenite and Black Tourmaline, incorporating them into my energy protection practice and wearing them in my bra whilst at work. You can find out more about each of these crystals by re-reading the crystal must-haves section above.

If you are in need of a little confidence boost and good luck in a work project or job hunt, then Aquamarine is a good crystal helper. Not only does it emit a relaxing and calming vibrational, yet I found that it boosts your confidence and gives you the motivation to simply just go for it.
