Weekly round-up: New Moon + Free Downloads

Well, we are now moving into a New Moon in the sign of Virgo. Which feels to be a time of closure, letting go and endings. Followed by the prospect of a new beginning or phase of your own personal journey. What that looks like will be very much dependent upon where you are on your journey.

Things that are coming up for me are:

Reflection – Being guided back to this time last year and the plans that were made. Questioning are they still relevant and if not, what needs to change?

Routines – Looking at my daily routines and considering what needs to be tweaked or completely overhauled in order to be more in alignment with myself and forward plans.

What is coming up for you?

One thing that I like to do is support others to support themselves so I have been busy creating and revising Ebooks with practices and tools that I have used, as well as continue to use to support myself.

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

Day 4: Crystals + your feminine spirit

One thing I’ve increasingly noticed is the tendency for women to push aside their femininity in order to stay on top of their game at work or simply survive in the workplace. Something that I’ve been guilty of myself. However, as I and many others have learnt, living your life in that way isn’t sustainable. It soon takes its toll on your physically and drains your spirit.

It’s partly due to this that so many women find this burning desire within to quit their jobs or simply find themselves attracted to spirituality, as well as mindful practices.

However, it’s not just the practices and rituals, it’s that opportunity to reconnect with yourself as a woman. Awakening your femininity and embracing all that it means to be the woman that you were created to be.

This full embodiment of the real you is something that many of us strive for, yet do so by focusing on6 all that is outside of ourselves first. Not recognising that it all comes from within first and radiates outwards. Being shown as grace, inner confidence and that illusive glow. Isn’t that what you want to experience and embody?


RECLAIMING YOUR FEMININE SPIRIT

Although all of the crystals we have encountered have touched on aspects of our inner beauty that many of us want to nurture, eg: Self love and confidence. Today’s crystals will focus on reclaiming and fully awakening your femininity.

Moonstone

As it’s name suggests this crystal is aligned with the energy of the moon. So don’t be surprised if you are drawn to Moonstone during your menstrual cycle or at the time of the Full and New Moon. Its also a crystal that connects you to your own femininity, inner goddess and sacred beauty. With many swearing by the benefits of meditating with Moonstone during the time of the Full/New Moon, enhancing your intuition and connection within. What’s more feminine than that?

Garnet

This crystal is perfect for those who are ready to bring their sexy back and unleash their wild spirit. Garnet is a crystal associated with passion and physical love. It also dissolves any blockages in the lower chakras which is where we can often hold onto those feelings and memories that prevent us from fully connecting with ourselves, as well as others.

Labradorite

A stunning stone to look at, Labradorite is considered a ‘magic stone’. A stone that has the ability to re-awaken the magic that lies within you and opens you up to using it in order to manifest, as well as being good luck into your life.


WORKING WITH THE PHASES OF THE MOON

Crystal rituals can be completed at any time, although the Full Moon is particularly potent time to connect with your divine feminine.

This is because the moon is at its fullest and it’s a powerful time to honour all of what your feeling, whilst releasing what is no longer in alignment with the woman you are becoming.

Equally, if you feel drawn, you may want to also work with your divine feminine crystals during a new moon, especially if you wanting to embody new aspects of your personality. Reason being that the new moon is a time of calling in the new and fresh starts.

Incidentally, there is a New Moon next week on June 13th so that’s the perfect time to connect with your feminine crystals.

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.


CONNECT WITH YOUR CRYSTAL

Begin your day with your chosen crystal and carry it with you as a divine reminder or talisman for how confident + worthy you truly are.

 

crystals, Divine feminine, Intuition, Lapis Lazuli

Day 2: Lapis Lazuli

Intuition. It’s one of our greatest assets. Yet it’s one that many women have suppressed and denied due to betrayal, belittling and the pain that trusting it has caused them in the past. Much of which has come from people around them who simply do not get it or simply fear all things mystical.

Instead, we have been conditioned to trust logic, reason and outside opinion more than our own inner guidance system. Which for many has led to disconnection and dis-ease within and without.

Thankfully, today more and more women (and men) are awakening to the beauty that lies within. Using tools, spiritual practices and rituals to support them in fine-tuning their intuition.

Crystals are one such tool that you can incorporate into your daily and spiritual practice in order to strengthen that connection within. Enabling you to feel the subtleties in energy and that pull that comes from within.


LAPIS LAZULI

There are a fair few crystals that you can use to enhance your intuitive abilities. Amethyst is one such crystal and would probably be the most obvious choice. After all, it’s known for it’s relaxing benefits. Helping to alleviate the systems of stress, anxiety and ‘monkey mind’. Each being conditions that can exacerbate those feelings of dis-ease and disconnection, which create the feeling of distance or separation from your intuition and soul.

However, the crystal in focus here is Lapis Lazuli. A stone that has been revered throughout time:

  • Queen Cleopatra wore it as eye makeup.
  • Buddhists who recommend it for promoting inner peace + freedom of negative thought.
  • Mystics + crystal enthusiasts who believe that it facilitates the connection between the mystical + material world.
  • Revered throughout time as a stone of wisdom, truth and enhancing your intuition.

Making it a must-have for any Sacred Beauties who are ready to re-awaken, re-connect with and fine-tune her intuition.


SIMPLE + EFFECTIVE SUGGESTIONS FOR WORKING WITH LAPIS LAZULI

Carry it with you in a pouch with other crystals that promote the energy conducive for connecting to your intuition. Particularly when you are walking into environments where you want to see the truth and be able to connect to the truth within yourself, bringing this forward in an authentic way.

Meditate with it in your hand in order to promote peace within and connect to your own inner guidance within. It will also help to open the third eye. However, I don’t recommend forcing this to happen.

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

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
