Back To School Tools For Spiritual Protection & Empowerment

As a teen I always felt anxious at this point in the year. The looming back to school start date being a reminder of the bullying that I would be returning to. Years down the line, when I became a teacher, that familiar feeling of anxiety would return.

However, as a teacher my saving grace was that I knew how to protect myself energetically and spiritually. Which supported me in feeling safer, protected and guided. Whilst being able to complete the work/assignment that God had placed me there to do.

If only I had had this knowledge and feeling of ‘connection’ as a young girl. I wonder how different things would have been.

Alas, whilst I can’t change my past I can share what I’ve learned, in the hope that it may help another young girl (or boy) out there. So, today I share a few spiritual tools that a young person or new teacher can use to empower themselves, feel calmer within and protect their energy as they return back to school.

Black Tournaline
Black Tourmaline is known as a crystal bodyguard that protects your energy by shielding it from ‘negative’ energy. Supporting you in creating and upholding that energetic boundary between you and unwanted energies. It also can be used as a tool to transmute your own negativity within into positive energy.

Tiger’s Eye
Tiger’s Eye has grounding energy which works to support you in being able to confidently show up as yourself in any given situation. Providing a sense of empowerment and confidence from within.

Historically known as a stone of protection, it was worn as an amulet to ward off negative forces. Today, you can draw from this ancient wisdom by carrying it as your own  amulet for protection and activating your personal power.

Rose Quartz
Known as the stone of love because it vibrates at the frequency of unconditional love. So, you can work with this crystal as a tool to help you in releasing energy that you have absorbed and any negative emotions.

You can also wear it with the intention of increasing self love and blocking daily disorders and disagreements.

Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael is actually one of the first Archangels I ever worked with. Although, at the time, I knew and referred to him as St Michael. Calling on him for a healing miracle and boy did he came through!

As I learned more about the Angels I learned that he is also a an Angel of protection too. One that you can call upon to protect your energy, as well a provide you with strength and courage when yours is waning.

There are many ways that you can call on AA Michael, including prayer, intention or petition. Whichever method you choose always come from your heart.

When calling on him for protection you can do the following:

Visualise and affirm: “Thank you AA Michael for surrounding me with your blue light of protection throughout my day. Keeping me safe and protected from lower vibrational people and energies. Thank you for giving me the strength and courage in this situation (insert what the situation is, eg: being bullied and not believing in yourself). And so it is. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

When you feel ready, open your eyes and get on with your day. You can use this affirmative prayer whenever you like.

Known as the protector angel. Call on him ans visualise him surrounding your children with a blue light of protection. Even better if you can share this with your child or do it together.

Love Thy Self
When people try to bring you down or when the environment that you are in feels draining its important to top up your own reserves. Fill your own cup.

One way to do is to Love Thy Self.

See, honour and celebrate all of things that make you uniquely you. All of things that set you apart from others, even if those are the things that people try to bring you down about. Where possible put a positive spin on the seemingly negatives, eg: acne prone skin can teach you how to care for your skin and improve your diet to help control your skin condition.

Find a way to flip the switch on the negative and empower yourself.

Look beyond your physical beauty to see your inner beauty too, eg: I am kind and caring. I am intuitive and quick thinking. I am a gifted writer.

Find all of those good things. Write them down. Read and remind yourself of them often.

This may seem pointless and frivolous. HOWEVER, by doing this often you are strengthening your energy field (aura) and empowering yourself. Radiating an energy that is empowered, grounded and strong. Making you a force to be reckoned with.

Light Yourself Up
Finally, give your mind a break by focusing it on something that you love doing. It could be a new hobby, running, painting your nails or writing. Whatever feels good and lights you up.

As mentioned this will give your mind a break and it will awaken the creative side of your brain which is also where intuitive insights can be found. Leading to aha moments or ideas that support you in helping yourself at this moment in time.

It will also give your body some much needed relaxation and respite too. Lowering your heart rate, releasing tension and promoting a sense of calm from the inside out.

So, there you have it: Tools and rituals to support you this September.

Remember that these tools and rituals can be used alongside other practices, such as counselling, meditation, talk therapy or whatever is helping you at this time. Use them to remind you of your own power, brilliance and inside out beauty.

Let’s talk about Spirit.

I believe that we all have Spirit around us who want to guide and support us, even protect us as we move through life. This might take the form of Angels, Ascended Masters, Ancestors…….

When you connect to your Spirit team you open up the gateway to receive bespoke guidance, messages and support. Yet, the key is to be OPEN to connecting and receiving. And, whilst many people say they want to connect, they dont or they find it a struggle.

Whilst the reasons for this can be varied. The most common reasons tend to be:

  • Thinking they can’t
  • Fear of connecting to lower vibrational entities
  • Childhood experiences of being scared of Spirit
  • Family conditioning – being told off or told that seeing Angels is evil
  • Past life memories/energy tie of being isolated, abused or killed for connecting with Spirit
  • Or maybe something else

Either way, the fear, the memories and belief system can create a block that stops you from receiving.


Because the disbelieving and second guessing will have you questioning that connection. Dismissing the guidance, signs, visions or messages. Basically not trusting that which you receive.

It’s when you are able to move beyond those beliefs or heal the wounding that you can align and become receptive.

I have been able to feel and read energy since I was a little girl. Whilst also seeing Spirit as if it was just a normal person.

Over the years, how Spirit show up for me has changed and I tend to see through images in my minds eye, sparkles/flashes of light or white mist that can form shapes, as well as hearing Spirit (mediumship).

For years, I thought that this was something everyone could do and was doing. So, I didn’t feel the need to talk about. Yet, when I did I noticed that people would laugh or make snide comments. Incidentally, a lot of those people are now talking about always being into spirituality and energy.

Once I realised this wasnt the norm, I went undercover. Kept it to myself and went all in on developing my ability to connect with Spirit. Building my own relationship with the different guides that step forward and learning how to:

  • Listen
  • Trust
  • Take guided action

A journey in itself.

As such, Spirit have guided me in my daily life, protected me and were key to my healing and return to self love journey. Each member of my Spirit team coming into my life at the right time, for a specific purpose and making their presence known in their own unique way. Yet a way that they know that I would recognise and readily receive. With some exciting stage left when our time together is done. Some returning and others, not just yet. A divine reminder that:

“Some Spirit Guides, like some people, come into our lives for a reason, season or lifetime.” – Chanel Marie

The whole experience of building this relationship with Spirit reminding me that I am always supported and don’t have to simply rely on my own strength. With my work as a psychic and healer affirming to me that this connection is available to everyone who is open to receive it.

You will have your own Spirit team too.

They will come to you at different times and for different purposes.

Sometimes doing so in a bold way. At other times more subtle and requiring us to drop more into our body to receive.

Yet, as mentioned above, you have to get out of your own way. Working on your belief system or energy to receive those messages, guidance and support from Spirit.

“It’s not a case of connecting. That connection  is already there. It’s more about moving beyond the fears, doubts and memories that block you from receiving.” – Chanel Marie (Tweet this)

So the following steps are intended to guide you in opening up to receive Spirit and their wisdom for you. Choose the method that appeals to you or try them all. It’s up to you.

One thing to remember is that how Spirit come to you may differ from your friend, loved one or that girl you follow on Instagram. This is your experience and relationship. Not anybody elses. Click here for different ways Spirit connects.


Probably one of the more obvious ways of connecting with your Spirit team. With this method it’s really about getting yourself into the act of listening and aligning your energy. So, that you are able to receive the guidance and messages Spirit bring you, in whatever form that might be.

You do not need a special meditation to do this, unless you want to experience a guided meditation. Connecting to your breath or listening to music/sounds is enough. Before you begin set the intention and create a safe space through prayer, eg:

Thank you Angels, guides, loved ones in Spirit who work in the highest degree of love, light and compassion for stepping forward to connect with and guide me.

As a Channel for Spirit and writer this is my favourite way to connect with Spirit because the guidance literally flows through you. What’s key with this method is to:

Get out of your own way.

Allowing the words to simply spill onto the pages of your journal without you censoring, second guessing or wondering if you are doing it right. That’s not necessary. Just switch off the mind. Ask the ego to step aside and just allow yourself to receive the guidance.

This guidance and the messages may reveal themselves in different ways. Signs, symbols, visions, numbers, songs, feeling or a stream of consciousness. There is no right way or judgement required.

There are times when Spirit will connect with you, rather than you having to go to them. As such they may leave you signs of their presence, such as coins or feathers. You can even ask them to give you a sign of their presence.

Spirit love when we connect with them in this way and they love the more playful, fun vibe of this too. It helps to bring them closer because your vibration raises when you are having fun and being playful. A bit like being in a childlike state. Incidentally, this is often why children find it so much easier to connect with Spirit. They are not judging, worrying about if they are doing it right. They are open and having fun.

Connecting with your Spirit Team is not this one time thing or something you do when you want something.

Treat it like a relationship.

Come from a place of gratitude and really take the time to nurture that relationship.  Because sometimes that connection wont be instant. Sometimes the connection will not feel as strong. So, you have to work on it. In the same way you would work on a relationship in the physical realm.

I use my psychic and healing gifts to guide my clients in self-healing and connecting to their intuition, as well as their Spirit team.

So, in a 1:1 session we can focus primarily on you and what will specifically support you in building your relationship with your Spirit team. Working in conjunction with my Spirit team and yours. Leading you to a place of Spiritual independence where you don’t have to rely on looking outside of yourself for guidance.

You can choose how you want to work with me, be it email or telephone. One mini session to get started or a bespoke package. The choice is yours.

Book your 1:1 session with me here.

Make it a daily practice to connect with your Spirit team. A bit like date night with Spirit and just give yourself permission to welcome them into your life. Because trust me, they are ready for you.

SPIRITUAL TEAM: Why you are not connecting.

We are all surrounded by our own little (or quite big) team in the spirit world. A team that can consist of angels, spirit guides, ancestors, God and the universe. Guiding us through this thing called life.

I know that it my own life my Spiritual Team have been there through the ups, downs, wins, challenges…….

Protecting me when I was being bullied. Guiding me away from a narcissist and toxic situations. Bringing guidance and synchronicity when I needed it the most. Inspiring thoughts and actions that lead to golden opportunities. Strength during times of struggle, anxiety and doubt.

In fact, I remember one day whilst lifting something heavy at work – anyone who knows me that I don’t lift anything “heavy” – I was definitely out of my comfort zone and struggling. One of the kids noticed and said:

“Don’t worry Miss, you can do it. I can see your wings.”

He said what?????????

Turned out he could see Angel wings appear behind me.

And, yes, I lifted the object with ease.

Your Spiritual Team are already around you. They are already guiding and assisting you even if you cannot see them. So, if you need more help all you need to do is ask.

Sure enough with the help from the Angels (and my Angel wings) I lifted the object with ease. An experience that shines a light on the fact that:

With this in mind, what stops you from receiving their help?

  • Beliefs – “I can’t”. “I tried and it didnt work.
  • Impatience – “I tried (a handful of times) Nothing happened.”
  • Expectations – “I didn’t see anything” Maybe you’re meant to feel, instead.
  • Inconsistent – “I did it (method/ritual/practise) for a bit. Then I stopped.
  • Fear – “What if I attract bad Spirits?

Other factors such as stress, tiredness, desperation and sometimes your own sense of entitlement and lack of gratitude (ego) block your connection.

In my opinion, the reason why children, like the 4 year old I mentioned, are able to have these experiences is because they are open.

They don’t have these preconceived ideas, judgements, limiting beliefs and have this light, playful approach.  Which makes it easier for them to see, hear, feel and accept.

So, if you are struggling to connect with your Spiritual Team, take a leaf out of that 4 year old’s book:

Be open. Ditch the expectation and judgement.

Start to work on whatever it is that is stopping you from connecting and open up to receiving the spiritual support around you.

Admittedly, as an adult it can be hard to release the old in order to open up. However, it’s not impossible. You can do it.

With love 💜

Angel numbers are not just signs that your manifestation are on the way. There was is more to them that.

As a Psychic Medium, Spirit speak to me in signs and symbols, as well as normal convo style.

Those signs and symbols have generic meanings. They also have specific meaning given to me by the Spirit guide that I may be working with at that that time.

It’s a similar thing with angel numbers.

The numbers can be a sign that:

  • Your guides, Angels, ancestors are close and want you to connect with them more
  • You are aligned or misaligned with your desires or manifestations
  • You need to keep the faith, stay strong, dont give up hope
  • Or, maybe the numbers have a more specific meaning.

So, how do you know what the meaning is? How can you decode the specific message for you?

Most people go to Goggle. Looking up the numbers on their favourite websites. Mine is sacredjoscribes
However, the whole point of the Awakening journey as I know is to:

Awaken to YOURSELF and the Divinity, magic and answers that already lies within.

Therefore, consulting your own inner wisdom is the best way to get the real meaning.

Here are my tips on how to do that.

How did you feel when you saw the numbers or when it was pointed out? The initial feeling will give you a sense of whether this is an angel number showing that you are aligned or misaligned with your dreams/intentions.

What were you doing at the time when the numbers appeared? How did that activity make you feel? Was that activity in alignment with feeling good and raising your vibration?

What were you thinking about at that moment? Were your thoughts of the feel good variety? Or were you thinking negatively? Were you thinking about the bastard ex? If it’s the latter two then maybe consider that seeing the angel number was more of a pattern interrupt. Inviting you to shift your thoughts somewhere else and manifest better for yourself.

Bringing it back to yourself and using your own awareness allows you to connect with the true meaning behind the numbers. At the same time, supporting you in developing your relationship with yourself and spiritual team. Guiding you to look within before you look without.

Unfortunately, the world of Spirituality has made it seem like there is this one size fits all approach and pushing us to look outside of ourselves for the answers. And, dont get me wrong support from trusted channels is great. However, even then, remember that all answers lie within. Take what resonates.
