An exercise in Self Love.

Every now and then I call out to all the cells in my body. I sing out to the trillions of cells housed within my body, keeping me alive, and I speak to them. You might think I’m a little crazy but it’s a wild concept to think about. We’re not an individual unit, a single. We’re a collective. And we seem to sit at the top over looking yet not seeing what’s really going on.

What do I say to them? You might ask. 

I tell them I love them. I tell them they’re doing a good job and I thank them. I even picture all these little round cells pausing and looking up at me, and then smiling. They like to be appreciated. For many years they were picked on, abused, told they weren’t good enough, that they were ugly and fat. And that wasn’t from other people, that was from the mind at the top of the tower.

For many years I never knew. I never thought about them. How hard they were working even under the rule of a tyrant. But now, as I recognise myself as a collective, as a team, I give them what I always wanted.

Love. Attention. Kindness. Encouragement. Acceptance.

Isn’t that what we all want?

gratitude-self-love-cells-heal-healing-heal-your-body-happy-how-to-be-happy-happiness-life-love

Yet so often, we can’t even give that to ourselves. We strive hard to get it from other people yet it always falls short. It never satisfies and we mostly don’t believe it anyway cause it doesn’t match up to our own secret thoughts about ourselves.

But the gold at the end of the rainbow is in knowing we can do it for ourselves. We can stop everything right in this moment and say; I love you, thank you. We can ignite a vibrational shift within our being, into one that is more pleasant to inhabit. But we’ve got to stop thinking it’s out there. We’ve got to stop seeking external gratification, praise and validation, and seek the internal gold.

Or as my wise fellow blogger said; our inner sunshine.

And if you think you don’t know how, or it’s not important I beg to differ. Our ability to love ourselves defines our capacity to give and receive love to others. And if you can’t love yourself or others, and you can’t receive love, then I ask you; what is your purpose for life?

For me it’s all about love. It’s learning how to connect in and be with yourself, and to connect with other people. It’s all a big lesson in thinking we’re separate, and then discovering how to come back to the whole. Discovering we’re One.

And I’m not saying it’s easy. I’m saying it’s important. It’s worthy of our thoughts, attention, focus and effort. It’s worthy enough to ask for help from others, to discuss with friends, to read books about. It’s a truly worthy cause because the cause is you. It’s all of us. And I know we can do it.

I know we can turn our inner hell of judgement, fear and criticism into our own sacred sanctuary, one to be cherished and relished and adored. One we delight in inhabiting, and sink into it’s welcoming company when all goes quiet around us.

“How can I work with my Angels and Guides, and what fears are blocking me?”

I was going to do a tarot reading and I called in your Guides and Angels, however before I could even get the cards out information started pouring in.

Firstly I see a very common fear or block, of thinking “I can’t” it’s along the lines of I’m not psychic or special enough to be able to do healing work, or communicate with Angel and Guides. I’ll get back to this one as I then had something from your childhood jumping out at me.

I keep getting the age 3 and that something happened at night which scared you. You were able to see things back then however when you were younger (ages 0-2) you had no critical faculties developed so you just allowed these experiences in. Around the age of 3 is when you started to become aware of ‘the ways of the world’ so to speak, and this is when those experiences and visits in the night started to scare you. Your thinking mind became afraid of the unknown and this is where it has stayed.

You have a keen interest in this sort of thing, and that is important as it anchors you back into who you really are and more of what you’re really capable of. It’s time for you to come home within yourself, to find you more fully than ever before.

Yes, but how? I hear you ask 🙂 card reading, tarot, healing, blocks, fears, psychic reading, free psychic reading, archangel raphael, how to work with angels, spirit guides

Firstly, it’s giving yourself permission to try. Call in your angels or an angel in particular (Archangel Raphael is with you right now, but there are more there with you also). Call the name of the angel three times with your eyes closed. Pause briefly, and then thank them for coming in.

Don’t wait for a sign – even though you might get one, like tingling up your spine, shivers, a flash of colour in the corner of your eye. Then start talking to yourself 🙂 Yep that’s right. Start a conversation in your head. Ask a question, such as what do I need to know right now. Pause briefly, and then just start answering it in your mind. It’s actually that easy, but you need to do it first, before you can believe you can do it.

Let the conversation carry on for a while, go back and forth – yes almost as though you’re just talking to yourself. Then after a few minutes reflect upon the content of the information you’re being provided – that’s where the proof or convinces are!

Often we notice that the language doesn’t actually sound like us, or that we’re offered a new perspective on a problem in our life. Also, notice how you’re feeling, usually your energy will change when you’re communicating to your angels and guides. You’ll feel uplifted. I often start to laugh, as though joy is bursting from my body unable to be contained.

card reading, tarot, healing, blocks, fears, psychic reading, free psychic reading, archangel raphael, how to work with angels, spirit guides, how toI also see a golden light. This is related to one of your guides but they’re also saying use the golden light to connect in – imagine the light all around you, and even breathe it in, as this will help to create a bridge between the two worlds. They say it’ll help with any negative thinking and self-doubt throughout the process.

You also might think you don’t have time or the ‘right’ space to do this sort of work, but they are saying this is exactly the right time, and there is space in your life to do it.

You also have a deeper, possibly subconscious fear of ridicule, or people laughing at you. Maybe there are people in your life or at work that don’t believe in this sort of thing and you’re worried about how they’ll react if you move further into it. You are to know that you are here to bring about change, to lift the energies of consciousness, and not to worry. You are loved and accepted for more than your interests. The more you love yourself – enough to follow urges around this work – the more you won’t worry about what others might think of you. You also might be surprised in their reactions anyway.

I also pulled a card for you and received two cards.

The first one is called Unexpected Visitors and is prompting you that your spiritual team is all around you. Take some time out to sit quietly and let them in. The main message here is they want you to know that it’s time to dive into the unknown and to ‘expect the unexpected’ will allow everything to change. If we keep living each day exactly the same as the last, then we’ll just get more of the same. It’s time to step right out of that comfortable box, join a meditation or spiritual development group, don’t hold yourself back for fear of not being capable enough.

The second card you received is Intention. Setting the intention for what you want. You say you want to communicate with your Angels and Guides, then ask that of them and the universe, and then let your intention go. Like a bird you release, thank your Angels and Guides for being there even before you feel them, thank them everyday for their support and guidance and then you’ll see their support in your life.

I’ve also included this picture as it reminds me of your energy underneath any fears or doubt 🙂 card reading, tarot, healing, blocks, fears, psychic reading, free psychic reading, archangel raphael, how to work with angels, angels, spirit guides, how to

Something gone astray

healing-love-poetry-poem-spiritual-awakening-spiritual-awakening-wake-up-self-love-relationships.How do we forget so easily

a love that is for us?

We remember what we need to do

and say and be and get.

Yet loving us seems too far fetched,

or hard or something bad.

But it isn’t til we’ve gone astray

and become desperate in our days,

that love finds our heart decayed

believed void of any light.

Yet it’s been dimmed due to neglect,

and years spent shunned in shame,

still never let your mind tell you

that it’s too late for love to show.

For it’s love within that knows

it’s been there all along.

And now it’s time to take a hand

and follow down the path,

for where this track leads you to

is bliss bursting from within.

The Gift Awaits Us.

emotional-health_emotional-healing_letting-go-heal-your-life-hypnotherapy-reiki-wellington-reiki-meditation-poem, poetry,

The gifts the Earth parades for us,

fall silently far from sight.

All that ails, she’s there to cure,

as she begs to ease the minds of many.

Yet we push and pull and complain away,

and miss the show, the majestic dance,

of wind and rain and water spirits,

each beckoning our pain away.

The over identified persona we use

to push away the hearts of those,

we declare too different to us.

And there we sit hidden within

the walls that confine and limit our mind,

preventing us from ever truly,

meeting ourselves.

How to Lucid Dream – let’s begin.

Recently the term ‘lucid dreaming’ has repeatedly entered my awareness from different sources, and in case you don’t know what that is I’ll briefly explain.

Lucid dreaming simply means becoming aware you are dreaming, whilst you are asleep. It’s bringing your conscious awareness into your sleeping state, and melding the two so you can start to actively participate in, and directly create and control your dreams.

how-to-lucid-dream-what-is-lucid-dreaming-lucid-dream-guide-help-meaning

I’ve had spontaneous experiences of lucid dreaming throughout my life, and they’ve all been really cool. And these days, even though I haven’t had a lucid dreaming experience for some time, if I’m trying to run in a dream some kind of awareness kicks in and I’ll run super fast, or I’ll even fly.

However I’ve only had a handful of times where I’ve felt without a doubt that I’m asleep and dreaming, and can do anything I want. This hasn’t happened for a while now, but I’m going to teach myself (and you if you’re keen) how to do it.

From my initial research I’ve learnt a few pointers to instigate an initial lucid dreaming experience, and this is for anyone whether you’ve done it before or are a complete beginner.

  1. Get a journal and a pen and keep it by your bed. You’ll need to write down your dreams first thing in the morning. It’s important to start this process even if you can only remember one or two random details from your dreams. Usually by doing this just once, then the following morning you’ll remember more details from the previous night, and even more the morning after that.
  2. Create what they call an ‘incubator dream’. It’s a planned dream experience, so you might daydream and choose what your dream will be, then work with this same dream experience and really connect into it as you’re drifting off to sleep. Also, if you wake up during the night, then take yourself into your planned dream – which is referred to as incubating your dream.

There are many more steps and processes you can do to start the process of encouraging your first lucid dreaming experience, but these two are the most important and effective so I thought I’d just start there. Gotta make it manageable for us.

I’ve already got a journal, so I’m going to ensure it’s right by my bed when I go to sleep tonight and that there’s a pen already slotted into it, on a blank page.

I’ve never done the incubator dream tactic, so I’m really keen to give this a go. What I’ve how-to-lucid-dream-what-is-lucid-dreaming-lucid-dream-guide-help-meaningcome up with today is a mental picture of an enchanted forest. In it I’m standing on a grassy clearing with trees around me forming a circle. There is an old willow tree directly in front of me with a door. Through the door is a little house embedded into the tree. I want to have a dream of that forest and enter the tree house, inside is the space where I can sit down with guides, spirits or beings.

Yes, I might be setting my sites high with my incubator dream, but what they hey!

Why do I want to learn to lucid dream, you might be asking? 

I’ve always loved the idea of connecting into my soul, angels and loving beings while sleeping, and it’s proved an easier space as our conscious chatty mind is already out of the way. So often I’ll go to bed with a question on my mind and I’ll ask it to the universe then fall asleep, and the question will be answered either in my dreams or I’ll wake the next morning knowing the answer. This has been extremely helpful when I’ve been stressed, worried and stuck in my life.

However with lucid dreaming, I’ve heard you can take this much further. You can create experiences in your dreams to expand your mind, learn and discover more about how we create our lives, you can call in divine beings and have in depth discussions with them, travel anywhere you want and more, receive deep healings, travel into past lives, and much more.

I want to use that space to explore healing (for myself and others), as well as developing an awareness of my subconscious beliefs and structures, and then learn how to change them during the dream. I’d also love to experience more about dream therapy, and the possibility of helping people work with their dream space for their own healing. As well as using the dream space to connect into angels, guides, and ascended masters for guidance and wisdom.

Do you want to learn to lucid dream with me?

What would your incubator dream be?

And the last tip before I go off to prepare is to repeat the mantra to yourself as you’re going to sleep; I will lucid dream tonight, or I’m going to lucid dream tonight. You can also ask for help to lucid dream from your Soul and divine guidance.

Have fun happy dreamers!

Heart Chakra Opening -a 2 minute technique

Read through the following instructions and then close your eyes to begin.

Imagine a small ball of green light, just like a marble, sitting inside your chest in the middle of your rib cage.

The green ball of light has swirls of dark coloured energy through it, and feels hardened.

There is a small opening at the top of the marble. Place your attention on the top of the marble and inhale deeply, breathing right into it through it’s opening.

As you inhale breathing into the marble, it begins to spin.

Continue breathing into it and as it spins, it starts to grow. 

With every deep inhale, the small marble grows bigger and bigger as you fill it with air.

Now as you exhale you start breathing out and releasing the darkness from the green marble. Each exhale you draw the dark patches up and out from the marble, breathing them right out of your body.

Continue breathing into it, using your breath to help it spin and expand, and with your exhale, release the darkness.

The deeper your inhale the more the green marble moves and grows, and even starts to become lighter and more vibrant.

Continue the process until the green ball feels just right to you – the right size, motion, and colour. Notice how you feel compared with when you started the process less than 2 minutes ago.

Extra Tip:

To get more from your meditation, do this process 3 times a day.

The benefits you’ll experience can include: increased ability to remain calm, more clarity, more energy, increased motivation, more ease in relationships, feeling lighter, more happiness, feelings of joy, connectedness, and less stress.

With love and an open heart,

Sharon

 

 

A Repeating Message from The Universe

Last night as I lay between being awake and slumber I received a very strong message.

Focus on what you have. 

It just kept repeating over and over, and I knew exactly what it meant.

I am a spiritual seeker and for quite some time now, I’ve been receiving the message to stop seeking. However, obviously since I’m still graciously being sent the same message in different ways, I haven’t quite got it. I’m struggling with finding a balance between my hunger for more, and letting it all go so I can discover truth within.

“You Blew Me Away” by Penny Hardy

It seems to be coming to a head as yesterday in my meditation I had a very frustrating experience. I could tell I was pushing, trying and controlling. Wanting connections, seeking bliss, pushing for insight. And they pulled back. They let me sit in my own self created anguish, and boy it was frustrating.

Then right at the end, as I was coming out I witnessed a small round ball of light just sitting there inside of my chest. I couldn’t overly feel it, I just gained an awareness of it.

And it was as if it was crying out for me to sit with it. Not go into it, not expand it. Just sit with it.

meditation, frustration, energy, insight, universe, messages

So that is where I’m at. It’s hard to not push forward, but the messages are clear.

Focus on what you have.

What are you overlooking?

What would happen if you ceased to push forward for one day, one hour or even one minute?

Can we ever truly let go? 

Graciously yours,

Sharon

 

A Soul’s Call

My Ego paints a future that’s bright,

while hastily ushering me away,

from a past it swears was very bleak. acim, healing, meditation, spiritual development, personal development, self improvement, growth, spirit,The pattern lures me in,

and I sleepily follow it’s lead.

Yet quiet whispers from a gentle spirit,

remains to send the call.

Left behind so many times before,

yet continuing Her gracious wait,

forever in the quiet.

And when I finally reach for Her,

She’ll be softly,

deep within.

 

With love,

Sharon

 

What I see in the word Trump.

donald trump, news, politics, love, trump, election, song, healingWhen I see news about Trump, what I actually see is people using him to divide themselves from other human beings – and acting as though it’s him doing it and not them.

I see people using his name to abuse other people, and to be mean, heartless and disconnected, and all the while feeling justified in the cause and effect for which they feel they have played no part.

Let us not be fools walking blindly into the trap woven ever so divinely, so as to be caught in a mirage of yet another reason to separate ourselves from each other. Do not let anyone come between yourself and another, whatever the reason and however justified you feel in doing so.

There was a line from a song I’ll never forget, because it is forever relevant it seems…

What the world needs now is love, sweet love. 

This statement couldn’t be more true, and it’s up to us to uphold. Let go of justification and righteousness for a moment and pull your brothers and sisters closer. Be sure and strong in knowing nothing will get in the way of the grander picture, the truth of reality.

Extend an arm of love to one another and toward ourselves, for it is with compassion and understanding that we stand tall, and not through ridicule – no matter how justified the reason is perceived to be.

With love,

Sharon

 

 

 

3 Powerful Methods to Protect Your Energy

clear negative energy, psychic attack, use protection, healing, light, angels

To protect or not to protect, that is the question. There are so many differences in opinion on this topic, and it seems people from the old energy use (and swear by) putting a protective ball of light around them.

That is one method you’ve probably heard of already, but it’s one that I don’t use. I’m not saying this doesn’t work, and I’m know it does for some people, however it’s never resonated with me so I don’t do it.

In this article I’m offering  you alternative methods, in case the protective ball of light doesn’t resonate with you either.

And frankly, I’m only using the word ‘protection’ so we all know what we’re talking about, but in my personal practice I don’t use that word. I feel it conjures up fear and the idea that there are many energies, forces, and people that we need protecting from. This is a fear based approach and thus breeds more fear.

We are powerfully enlightened beings (even if we don’t feel like it most of the time), and we don’t need to be scared of anything or anyone. 

We can learn to master our own energy, grow and expand it at will, use it to transform and uplift heavy forces in the world, and raise our own vibration and that of the planet.

In light of that, my top 3 methods for managing, maintaining or enlivening your energy include;

  1. Heart Chakra, love based protection. Practice building a tangible relationship with your heart chakra. You can do this by regularly focusing your attention on the centre of your chest and breathing into it. Grow quiet and breathe through any hard walls that you may feel around it, and keep breathing into your chest until you feel it soften. Once your heart has softened, use your exhale to expand loving energy from your heart, around your body. Expand it out so far and wide that it stretches out your aura and energy field, filling it with love. love, healing, protection, psychic attack, clear negative energies, clear energy
  2. Send love to the other person, place or thing. Whatever you feel you might need protection from, send love to instead. This bolsters your connection to your own power and cuts through any psychic pulls or negative energy that may have been directed your way. You’ll be doing wonders to the consciousness of humankind if each time you feel threatened, frustrated, angry you send love instead of playing out any other reaction.
  3. Clear the energy you’ve picked up. Once you notice you have picked up some heavy, or unhelpful energy use whatever technique works for you to either change and transform the energy, or you can clear it. For more information on how to do this go to my other articles: “Do you take on other people’s energy” or “Top 5 Methods to Clear Energy” .

The key is not to be afraid of heavy, dark or negative energies (and people for that matter). It is time for us to realise our power, and to not cower in fear or hide because we’re scared of what may happen to us.

A daily practice of connecting into love and your heart chakra will help raise your vibration, which in tuhealing goddess, healing, love, psychic attack, clear negative energy, angelsrn will have a big impact on how you feel. It’s possible to raise your vibration so much that you are never brought down by ‘negative people’, places or events.

You are the Queen of your Internal Palace and frankly, it’s time we let ourselves know that, feel that, and live it.

We can reclaim what’s always been ours and grow in love, using all experiences – the good, the bad and even the ugly – as tools from which we learn. 

With love to you all,

Sharon
