I’ve been on a journey of spiritual awakening and want to develop my psychic gift. What is it that I need to know or do?

Hi Amy, I’ve posted the answer to your question here, as we’re are all connected and the answer originally intended for you, can also help others…

I love that you write psychic ‘gift’ as if you have only one, you have many and I feel for you especially it’s about dabbling in them all, not favouring one over the other, but beginning to play and strengthen each one, they will bounce off each other grow more easily that way. I see a tidal wave, implying a surging forward on your journey. Does that make sense to you? Maybe even, if you haven’t already, join a spiritual development group where each week you try a different way of connecting in. They are all there for you.

Also, alongside your spiritual / psychic development, also work on your mind. It is time to fade out the doubting thoughts that arise. Everyone has those thoughts and it’s really about whether you choose to listen and have doors close, or you hear them and choose to not listen.

I also see healing work, healing hands. Can you feel energy in your hands? Heat, tingling sensations? They are calling to you! Have you started or looking into Reiki or energy healing? You’ll have fun with this!! Getting into energy healing will also help open your other gifts as it’ll quieten your mind and help you focus, then messages and images etc will arise.

There is one guide in particular that is coming through very strongly. If you don’t know of them already, just invite them in. Start journalling or talking, and see if you can pause – like the pausing between breaths – you’ll ‘hear’ them in the stillness, but not necessarily through words.

When you’re working to increase your gifts, don’t aim for the obvious ones straight away – like seeing spirit or hearing words. Open up to the wonderous ways that spirit connects in, it’s not always so obvious so. There is a book that is important and helpful for you to read however I’m not getting the name. Have you come across a book recently, however not purchased it yet? If that makes sense, or comes to make sense soon – just get the book. Order it online, borrow from the library, or whatever, just know that it is a great tool for you and will help.

Keep your lightheartedness about your psychic / spiritual work, about this whole realm. The world you wish to connect into more is very light, so humour and a lightness of spirit really helps. So often when people delve deeper into this world they are all serious about it, however that lowers your vibration and makes it harder. It’s all about play ūüôā

I hope this helps and I’d love to hear back after you’ve read it!

With love,

Sharon

Channelled Wisdom, but from what Source?

All will come through the art of not-trying. 

I scrambled for my pen, as my eyes opened from meditation.

It is the unwinding of all the wound up parts of yourselves and your lives.

It seemed the messages coming through were for more than just me. I wondered whom or what I’d connected into…

And what if this voice was of yourself? 

It was as though the Being immediately heard my thoughts and was responding with a powerful and thought provoking question.

Would you still share it? Or would you think it lesser than?

Take time to sit with the content and worry less about from whence it came. 

channeling, how to channel, wisdom, readings, psychic, energies, meditation

I heard humming inside of me. Almost as though I was given a moment to contemplate what I had just been proposed with. Then the voice started again…

You are the singer and the song.

You are the writer and the words. 

Let you not shut the gates and minimise what could have been.

That was all for now. The silence returned. As I read back over the words I was surprised by the question that had been put forward. Through my spiritual work I’ve loved to connect into Beings, and I’ve even started channelling, however this was somehow different.

I knew the answer.

If I am honest, I know that I think it is lesser than somehow, if it is from me.

Even though I ‘know’ that we’re all the same, and we are one. (I’ve put ‘know’ in inverted commas because obviously I don’t fully know this yet). A grin crept it’s way¬†onto my cheeks, as I¬†enjoyed being challenged¬†with these questions.

To see yourself as the same being, angel or guide as that which you call out to and seek wisdom from.

Such is the mountain that I climb.

 

With humble love,

Sharon

 

Calling on Angels – A Guide

angel, spirit guides, love, healing, life, blog, repeating numbers, how to, psychic, blocksThe angels and divine assistance are always there for us, waiting to be invited into our lives.

One of the most beautiful aspects of working with the angels is that you don’t need to wholly ‘believe’ in them. You just need to be open minded enough to want to give it a go, or bold (or crazy) enough to do something even though your logical mind might be telling you not to.

The belief usually comes later.

There is nothing too involved or hard when working with the angels, it is simply about extending an invitation and giving your permission for them to act in your life.

Once this is done then be prepared to observe myriad synchronicities occurring in your life, which can make your life easier, happier and more fulfilling.

Angels usually communicate¬†by offering support indirectly, such as helping you meet just the right person, or through other people who might say something you needed to hear, or through signs that you see such as repeating numbers like 222, 333 or 444 to let you know¬†they’re around.

However you can also work with them more directly, which is how I love to work with them. Working with them directly helps you to ask questions and get instant responses, work through challenges your facing in your life, uncover hidden blocks, receive healing energy, receive wisdom and a fresh perspective about an aspect of your life, and more.

I ¬†open up a dialogue with them which I hear as a voice in my head (usually sounds different to my own however doesn’t always). I’m also visual (which you can be too with some practice, if you’re not already) and get an image of the angel or guide in my head,¬†but once again not always. This experience varies from person to person, and sometimes changes depending on what guide or angel you’re connecting in with.

Often preceding the voice and visuals, I get some sort of sensation in my body to let me know they are near. This can include tingling up and down my spine, goose bumps, a cool breeze, a fuzzy happy feeling in my chest and stomach, ringing in my ears, tapping on my fingers, and more.

How do I start?

To get this sort of direct communication kicked off you can let the angels know you want to connect in with them directly, and then ask for help. It can be extremely helpful to do something to raise your vibration, such as a guided meditation, or focused breathing into your heart to help the connection along as well.

**I have a guided meditation which I have recorded to help connect you into your heart and raise your vibration, which I am happy to send to you for FREE ūüôā Just send me a message and I will email you the MP3. **

Note – if you don’t wish to write here, you can email me at contact@wakinglife.co.nz¬†and request your FREE guided meditation.

If you sit quietly and then call the angels in, you can¬†call one being in particular such as Archangel Michael or Archangel Gabriel, or you can¬†call in any being of love that is there for you. Then say that you’re wanting to communicate with them and can they please help you hear them. Just assume your request has been heard and is working to be answered.

Most people won’t hear the voice externally – like someone was next to you and talking. You will most likely hear it inside your head and may even discount it through thinking you are making it up yourself. This is the crucial point – where you will either shut it down and get no where, or you can continue by allowing the discussions to unfold¬†even if¬†you think you’re making it up.

Once you decide to¬†go along with it, you’ll begin to notice the response sounds a little bit different to how your normal thoughts sound. Such as the voice might be a little higher or lower, or the word choice or phrasing is different to how you would normally say it. Also, the more you interact you’ll begin to receive different perspectives to situations in your life, and advice and wisdom which enlightens you and helps your life. This is the stage that you’ll become more convinced that you’re making a real connection – but you have to get there first.

What Should I Say?

When working with the angels you can be general or specific, and it’s a good idea to try both ways on different days to see what happens. You can just start with invitations and requests, and when the connection gets stronger through practice, get to having back and forth conversations with them.

For example; one morning you can say aloud or silently;

“I invite the angels into my day in every way, and I give you permission to guide me and work through me for my highest good”.

Or you could try asking for help with something specific, such as;

“I invite the angels in and ask for help with getting a job or job offer in the quickest time-frame possible, which is aligned with my highest path” or “I ask the angels to help bring someone loving into my life and I ask for help with remaining open to whatever way they come.”

Another way I like to invite the angels in is to ask for their help with a feeling. For example; on a day that I am feeling low or somewhat contracted from the world, or if something challenging is going on I might say;

“I invite the angels into my day and ask¬†you to show me how loved I am” or

“I ask for your help with feeling more love / happiness / joy / abundance etc”

Remember to thank them for being there for you ūüôā

crystal, new year, life, love, angels, spirit guides, healing

What now?

The next step – which is often overlooked but so utterly important, is the letting go!

Once you’ve said, thought or written down your invitation and request then you can move into the next phase which is trust. Have faith that your request has been heard and will be answered. Move into curiousity or simply take a few deep breaths and connect back into the present moment.

Basically, forget about your request ūüôā I like to write them down because it is such a powerful convincer later on that week or even weeks later when I read back over my journal and I can see when I have sent requests out to the angels and then they have been answered. But once you write it down you don’t need to keep asking or thinking about it.

They may not always be answered in the way that you want, but they will always be answered.

Have you ever called on the angels?

 

With love,

Sharon

How to Channel -Intro Guide

how to channel, psychic, spirit guide, angels, higher self, life, spirit, connectI’m certainly not an expert but over the years I’ve picked up a few gems when it comes to learning how to channel.

I’ll start with answering a few common questions about channeling.

Can anyone channel?

Yes, we can all channel. It does take practice though, but we’re all so much more connected than we realise. It’s more a question of how many blocks we’ve put up in the way of our connection. For most of us, it’s a lot, and in order to channel and let the information flow freely, we need to clear out the limiting thoughts and blocks which stifle our connection.

Who do you channel?

Often it’s helpful to start with channeling your Higher Self, or your Soul, or the divine. But I’ve always found that spirit guides and angels are right there ready and willing as well. You don’t need to contact an intergalactic being first time, or an ascended master, just start with connecting into a higher part of yourself. Our guides and angels are always by our sides so when first starting out it’s a good idea to call them in for help! Whether you end up channeling them directly or not, I would certainly enlist their help.

How to start.

If you don’t meditate much then it’d be helpful to use a good guided meditation to get you deeply relaxed and connected. Most of us live our life up in our heads, in the conscious, thinking left brained part. The practice of channeling is all subjective, non-physical, right brained stuff.

Meditation helps us to let go of the ‘thinking’ and move into the experience.

Visualising white light is helpful as well, as it generally clears our energy and raises our vibration. Both aspects are essential when creating a clear connection. It will help to elevate you out of the traditional physical density or our world and it also serves as a method to move you out from your thinking mind and into your intuitive nature.

If you do meditate, then get yourself into a deep state and use some techniques to clear yourself and particularly your heart, third eye and crown, then elevate yourself energetically.

Some techniques you might employ are: imagine you are climbing golden stairs all the way up to the clouds. Then continue climbing til you emerge out the other side of the clouds. Imagine a beautiful garden there with a sacred meeting place.

Then call in your guides. channeling, how to be psychic, spirit guide, angels, higher self, soul wisdom

Once you feel calm and relaxed it’s time to call your guides, higher self, soul self, angels or whomever comes to mind. Call them to you. You might call out (just in your head) once or twice. Then ask for their help with chaneling your higher self.

Once you’ve requested help, let it go. Focus back on your breathing and just assume that help is there for you.

Then state to the universe (or to yourself or whomever) that you are connecting into your higher self for help, guidance and wisdom. Once again, assume this connection has occurred. Even if you’re unsure whether a connection has been made, thank all around you for the assistance they have offered you. This will help to strengthen your own connection.

Now, time for questions.

You can start with some closed questions, such as: Am I connected into my higher self now? Are my guides with me? Can you help my connection even further?

Just go with whatever response feels good. Once you have done a few yes or no questions, move on.

Ask some open questions such as: What do I need to know right now? Or, what is blocking me from connecting?

Then use your imagination. Pause once you’ve asked a question and allow for something to come up. It may take a few seconds so try to stay in a relaxed focus. Using your breath helps too. Just take big deep breaths and stay quiet.

Most people, when they’re starting out, will hear the response in their own voice. This is where a little faith is required. Just go with it, even if it feels as though you’re just talking to yourself or you’re making it all up.

If you wait til you’re 100% sure you’re channeling then you’ll probably never get there. Our imagination is the key which opens the door and leads the way.

How do I know if I’m really channeling?

The convincers that you’ve channeled usually come in the quality of the content you’ve received. And you might not even realise the wisdom of your conversation until afterwards. So just talk. Talk to yourself, your higher power, whatever it may be. Just talk for a while and see what comes up.

You can grab a pen, and opening your eyes slightly, write down whatever comes. Or I like to use a recording app on my phone and hit record. Then I talk freely, knowing I don’t have to think about it too much or pay too much attention because it’s all recorded.

You might surprise yourself when you listen back to it!

how to channel, angel, spirit guide, psychic, Give it a go and see what happens.

‘Cos you definitely won’t channel if you don’t even try.

For a long time I was sure I was just making it up, but the answers that I would receive would be so helpful and insightful, offering me a perspective I hadn’t seen yet, that it encouraged me to continue pursuing it.

It gets easier, but you’ve just got to go with it for a while first.

Have fun angels!

One Card Reading with no cards

healing, help, love, heart, psychic, reading, oracle, cards, energyI am away on holidays visiting family and friends in¬†Australia. I decided not to bring any oracle or tarot cards with me because¬†I was planning on buying a new deck or two or three, as soon as I arrived however it just hasn’t happened yet. I love to connect into my guides and angels directly but often I also enjoy using a medium such as cards.

Last night as I sat in bed I really wanted to pull a card¬†and receive a message of guidance¬†before¬†drifting off to sleep. As I didn’t have¬†a deck with me¬†I pulled out my journal¬†instead. As soon as I opened to a fresh page the following question¬†clearly made itself know to¬†me¬†– most likely along with a light bulb…

If I drew an oracle card right now what message would it have for me?

Right away I clearly heard: Relax Your Heart

And I didn’t just hear these words, I felt the message deep within me. I knew that this was a powerful message unique to me in this moment.

I wrote down my message and breathed into my heart. I felt walls that I didn’t even know were there begin to relax and my heart softened.

As usual, I surprised myself at how easy it all was and I pondered how often we reach for external help to receive guidance when an overflowing well is right there within us.

If you were to receive a message right now, what would that be?

 

 

 

 

222, 333, 444. Do you see repeating numbers?

11:11, 222, 444, number meanings, angels, signs, psychic, how to, help, wellington, spirit guide, Do you look at the clock right at the same time each day?¬†Are number patterns¬†like 222, 333, 444 or 11:11¬†showing up all over your life – on bills, receipts, clocks, price tags, emails? Well, you’re not alone.

Lots of people are noticing this phenomenon and many people have differing interpretations on what is occurring. Seeing repeating numbers is a really positive sign and indicates that you are becoming more aware and are on the right track.

Repeating numbers and patterns can be a sign that we are tuning into our inner guidance and intuition, and is also a sign that our angels and spirit guides are with us. 

When we¬†start to notice these numbers repeatedly occurring in our¬†lives, it’s a sign our awareness is opening up and we’re becoming more intuitive and sensitive. Often we¬†see¬†repeating numbers¬†when we¬†are in the flow of life and are being guided and encouraged to continue on this path.

We can also see them when things aren’t going well in our lives, and in that case these numbers serve as a sign from spirit that we are not alone and everything will turn out okay.

Next time you see repeating numbers¬†notice what you have just been saying or what you were thinking about, and¬†ask yourself:¬†“how do I¬†feel right now?” ¬†

This kind of phenomenon can serve as a reminder that not everything needs to¬†be explained by our rational mind and then neatly filed away in a logical compartment – AND that’s¬†okay. You are being invited into the world of the mystical. It’s like an offer to take the red pill from the Matrix, and if you acknowledge the presence of these patterns in your life then you’re accepting there is more to life and our existence, than meets the eye.

Once you’ve noticing these number patterns occurring then it can be helpful¬†to learn your language of numerical signs and establish¬†what they mean for you.

To get you started I have included some most seen number sequences and their common interpretations, but always remember that it can be better to intuit what the sign means for you.

222 = is a sign that things will work out in the long-term, even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. It is a positive sign of encouragement and support.

333 = reminds us to not become upset with other people and to¬†connect back into love within yourself and the love within all people. It is a sign to rise above the detail of our lives and to tune in at a soul level. These numbers also remind us to ask for help, both in the physical reality and to ask for help from the spirit realm. They are always there to support us, if only we’d ask.

444 = is a really powerful number sequence offering you a clear indication that you are on the right path and you are supported to reach your goal. This means your ideas will manifest and abundance is yours. It is a sign to keep going, action and effort will bring the results you desire.

¬†11:11 = this is a sign that you are awakening. You are rising up out of a sleepy existence that many of us live our whole lives within. Many people all over the world are seeing this sequence as our consciousness shifts. Sometimes when people¬†are seeing this number sequence you may feel unsatisfied with your life and start to feel as though there might be something ‘more’. Your friends or usual routines may no longer satisfy you and you may even feel the urge to go on a spiritual quest of sorts ūüôā Follow the urge! You will probably be noticing other synchronicities in your life and you may meet new people or discover new interests. You are being guided.

When you see these numbers occurring in your life there is no need to think about it for too long, just go with whatever first comes to mind. The main point is to keep lighthearted about it all and have some fun. Not everything needs to be serious and we don’t always have to logically know everything.

For the rest of today, take note of how many different number sequences and patterns come your way! Jot them down and see what messages you get.

There is a whole new world just waiting for us to notice it!

4 Steps to Meet Your Spirit Guide

Spirit guide, spiritual, how to connect, psychiWe all have a team of beings supporting us whether we consciously know it or not. For those of you who want to get to know them and work with them I am here to help and support you in doing just that. And to let you know that it is easier than you might think!

Everyone of us can connect in with them. It is only our thoughts that block us from allowing a connection to come through.

Usually these blocking thoughts are ones of doubt such as; I’m just making this up, you have to be a psychic to talk to guides/spirits, I’m just going crazy, Is this real? I’m just talking to myself, I feel stupid…. blah blah blah. I’m sure you can even come up with a few doubting thoughts of your own, and yes no-one is going to be able to tell you definitively that you are not just talking to yourself, but what have you got to lose? And you know what? The words and messages you receive back might just help your life!

Don’t let doubt get in the way of expanding your mind!

Which brings me to step one…

Step 1. Put doubt aside.
This is the biggest and most important point. Lay your doubts and skepticism aside, even just for this activity. Say to yourself, any doubting thought that comes into my mind I am going to put to one side for now and come back to later. In this one activity I am just going to give myself the benefit of the doubt and assume I am doing it.

Step 2. Set your intention.
This is where you decide you want to connect in with your guide. I do this by closing my eyes and taking a few deeps breaths, then I call out to my guide three times in my mind (feel free to speak these words out loud – if you are home alone:) with the words: I now call in my guide. Or something to that effect.

Step 3. Say Thank You.
Here is where you just assume your guide has come to you and is connecting in with you. You move into a deeper place of connection by completely throwing out all doubt and moving into a place of gratitude. Your mind switches from asking is anything happening, to if it was happening, then what is it? You look for clues and signs as opposed to evidence for failure.

Step 4. Ask a question and wait.
Ask anything you like, such as asking how you should refer to your guide – a name to call them by. Or asking them how long they have been with you. Start simple and work your way up to more in depth questions, once you have a good connection.

A good point to note is don’t discount the experience just because you can’t see your guide with your normal vision. We communicate with beings through many different methods so once you have asked your question just wait and be present for all the different ways we can receive communication; you might not hear a voice, but you might see your guide with your third eye, or you might communicate through knowing they are there and knowing what they are saying to you, or you might hear a voice within your head. Once you find out how you connect in best, such as by feeling, knowing, seeing and/or hearing you can start your connections off in that way, and then over time you will most likely communicate through several different modes.

Just allow the conversation to take place and notice any changes that you feel throughout your body, mind and in your energy. These will all serve as signs for you that there is a being present with you. For example; I always get shivers up and down my spine 3 or 4 times when I call them in, and now I recognise those feeling as a sign they have arrived.

This experience will be different for each person so go with whatever you get back, it might not feel like much at the start or it might be intense for you, but either way roll with whatever comes back without blocking with doubt.

I will expand on this in future posts, but this should give you enough to get started.

Be brave and give it a go ūüôā You might be surprised at what you get back!
