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.

Communicating with Mother Mary

Mother Mary
Unconditional love. Compassion. Forgiveness. Heart Healing. Protector of women.

Heal your thoughts and heart back to love by connecting with the beautiful, nurturing energy of Mother Mary.

Connecting with Saints came very out of the blue for me. Although I grew up in a Christian/Spiritual household, it never dawned on me that I would connect with Saints in readings and healing sessions.

I never call in Mother Mary or any other Saint specifically. My way is that I simply allow whatever light being who wants to step forward to do so and bring guidance and healing through me.

This has always been the case when working with Mother Mary whereby I find that she will connect with me or clients I am working with, in the following situations:

  • Healing their heart after a break-up
  • Reinventing yourself after ending a love affair
  • Supporting you to open your heart to love
  • Appearing before you are to meet a new partner
  • Forgiving yourself and others

I find that she mostly works alone. Always with the intention of bringing the vibration of love to the forefront and supporting you to access the love and divinity within. Even if that means bringing your barriers to love to your awareness.

However, there have been times when I have connected with her, only to feel the energy of Mother Teresa and receive additional guidance from Princess Diana. All 3 being women who are known for working from the heart and showing compassion for others.


HOW TO CONNECT WITH MOTHER MARY

Most people who connect with Mother Mary have found that they have been able to do so since childhood, that the connection comes out of the blue or they feel drawn to her.

You can simply pray to her for guidance, yet some like to create a weekly or daily ritual of connecting with Mother Mary. Dedicating a specific day and time to do this

Either way, it’s best to come with an open heart and mind.


Some suggestions for your ritual kit 

  • Mother Mary Candle. In the absence of such a candle, you could opt for a Pink candle (love + healing) or a white candle (healing + purification).The candle represents the 4 elements of Earth (the candle), fire (the flame), water (melting wax) and air (the ether in which yoir prayer and positive intentions will be moving through). It’s also a lovely way to open the gateway between you and Mother Mary.
  • Rose Quartz/Bracelet with Mother Mary charm (optional) – Rose Quartz is known as the stone of unconditional love. It helps to open the heart again to giving and receiving love, as well dissolve barriers to love.
  • Mother Mary prayer card. Carry your prayer card (and crystal) with you as a divine reminder of the positive intentions laid out in your prayer to Mother Mary.

Prayer from the heart. Remember to always keep your intentions and prayer requests positive and good.


When working with Saints or when setting a new intention I like to have, what I refer to as Divine Reminders, with me throughout my day. These Divine Reminders might take the form of a crystal, prayer card, affirmation on my phone or charm bracelet.

I find these Divine Reminders really useful, especially at those times when I feel out of alignment, irritated or frustrated by a thought or something that has happened in my day. Catching sight of the Divine Reminder helps to remind me of the intention that I am working towards and I have the choice to surrender to realign or stay in my low vibrational state.

So, if you feel guided or drawn to call on Mother Mary to support you in heart healing, forgiveness and opening up to unconditional love.

Intention and an open heart are all you really need. When you are in this space of being open to receiving and truly connected to your own Divinity within you are better able to receive guidance, discern your surroundings, make informed decisions and become aware of the love around and within you.

What’s your experience of Mother Mary? Which Saint is one of your favourites to connect with?

Crystals: A natural alternative for headaches

chanelmarie.co.uk

Nothing ruins a picture perfect day more than having a headache.

Anyone who experiences migraines or tension headaches on a regular basis knows just how awful you can feel. Think nauseous, pain around the eyes, constant throbbing in your head and an inability to concentrate or function at full capacity.

During the summer months, these headaches can become a daily fixture in your life. Preventing you from, not only enjoying the weather but also from showing up in life as the best version of you and on your A-game. Thankfully, Mother Earth has gifted us with crystals. Offering us a more natural alternative for pain relief.


CRYSTALS

Crystals have been on the earth for millions of years, with almost every civilisation reaping the benefits of incorporating crystals into their daily lives. They have been used for protection, adornment, beautifying, love talismans, rituals and, of course, healing.

Today, many of the beliefs, rituals and practices of these civilisations have been revived for the ‘Now Age’. So, everyone from the girl next door to your local Modern Mystic and celebs like Victoria Beckham count crystals as essentials for modern living.

When it comes to healing and pain relief crystals are placed on or around the body, focusing on the area where the pain is being experienced. The energy of the crystal works to move energy that has become stagnant or blocked in your body, which is what headaches are: Blocked energy.

Working with crystals when you have a headache will not take away the pain. However, it can be used to alleviate that pain, relax you and facilitate the positive flow of energy around your body.


CRYSTAL SUGGESTIONS

Amethyst

Amethyst crystals are particularly good for tension headaches or those times when a headache is brought upon by a lack of sleep. So, an Amethyst will be great to work with if the hot summer nights have left you feeling fatigued and tired. This purple gemstone promotes energy of calm and relaxation, supporting you in being able to de-stress and feel more relaxed. Placing this crystal on your head or on the pulse point in your wrist can be especially effective in relaxing you.

Selenite

Selenite is a great all-rounder crystal. One of the key properties of this crystal is moving stuck, blocked and stagnant energy. Which is exactly what you want to do when you have a headache: Get that energy moving. The simplest way to work with Selenite when you have a headache is to lie on the floor, couch or your bed, hold the crystal in your hand or place it on your forehead. Then simply allow the crystal to do the work.

Rose Quartz

Everyone knows Rose Quartz as being the stone of love. Yet it is also a healing stone which promotes a soothing and calming vibration. Once again, it is great to work with when you are experiencing a headache due to lack of sleep due to the heat at night. You can use this crystal in the same way that you would use the Amethyst crystal, which is particularly useful if you find the energy of Amethyst too stimulating as some people do. Who knows you may even open the heart to attracting the love of your life too!


chanelmarie.co.ukClear Quartz

Clear Quartz is known amongst crystal healers as the Healer’s Stone. This is because it has an abundance of uses and properties that can support you in healing, as well as manifesting. Yet, as a healing crystal for alleviating pain relief, you will find that Clear Quartz works to direct negative or heavy energy away from the body. Although it can be best to work with a Clear Quartz Crystal Point so that energy is released through the point, it is possible to place a small tumbled stone on your forehead too. When working with a tumbled stone the headache energy will move out of your head and absorbed by the crystal.


It’s worth remembering that each person will have their own unique relationship with different crystals. This is something that can also change over time. For example, you may find that at one stage in your life Amethyst is too stimulating for you, then somewhere down the line, you feel a real connection to it. This is perfectly normal. With this in mind, it’s recommended that you select the crystal that you are most drawn to when a headache kicks and explore what works for you.

If the crystals alone don’t offer enough pain relief, then try massaging Peppermint Oil into temples and directly onto your forehead. Another alternative is to inhale either Peppermint or Olbas oil, whilst relaxing on the sofa with a cooling eye mask over your eyes and listen to some binaural beats.

Note: I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Healing crystals for headaches should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. Always seek advice from medical and health professionals.

Day 3: Confidence Boosting Crystals

There are times in all of our lives when we can do with a little extra boost in confidence.

It might be because you’re attending an interview for a job you really want. Maybe you’re starting a new project or business and you really want it to go well. Perhaps you’re going on a date with a gorgeous guy who caught your eye. There are many scenarios in life that require us to really embody confidence from the inside out and radiate positivity.


YOUR CHAKRAS

It’s our sacral and solar plexus chakras that really govern the areas of confidence, self-worth and personal power. When these chakras are in good working order you tend to feel confident, empowered and are believing in yourself. You’ll be more inclined to follow your passions, put your best self forward and show up in the world with confidence. The opposite is true when these chakras are not thriving and are out of balance.

There’s a multitude of reasons why energy flow in and out of these chakras may be stagnant, eg: past failures or bullying. Depending on how deeply affected you were by the situation different methods of healing will be required. However, crystals can be the perfect complimentary or stand-alone tools to give you and chakras the boost that’s needed.


4 CONFIDENCE BOOSTING CRYSTALS

Rose Quartz

This was our day 1 crystal so, you are already away that it vibrates unconditional love, supporting you to recognise your own self-worth, as well as boosting your self-esteem. Due to its gentle, soothing and healing energy, it’s ideal for those lack of self-confidence has been as a result of heartache or hurt feelings.

Carnelian

Red and orange Carnelian. Carnelian resonates with the sacral and solar plexus chakras, as well as the roots. Crystals of courage, energy and passion, they are ideal for interviews or when working on creative projects. This is especially the case if you need to demonstrate your passion and creative side.

Orange Calcite

Resonating with the energy of the sun this crystal is great for bringing fresh and uplifting energy to a project and situation. It’ also great when you need energetic support to bring that kind of energy to the table, helping you to embody the vibe of a confident, innovative creator.
