Unleash the psychic artist in you.

psychic-art

There are many different ways to express yourself through psychic art, sometimes a drawing or painting can be a likeness to a loved one that is now in the spirit world.

Our Spirit Guides can also be shown through drawing or painting, often messages can be portrayed through psychic art and some drawings will tell a story.

The face or picture can seem to take shape as your pen, pencil or brush moves across the paper, you will feel inspired to work in a particular way and you may feel that you are being guided to create something wonderful either for yourself or someone else.

This will be your spirit guides working with you, sometimes you may feel totally distanced from the outside world while you are drawing, often in complete harmony and peace and at one with yourself as its very relaxing.

If you have already tried automatic writing, then psychic art works on the same principal, you just allow your hand to be guided. Don’t think to hard about what you are doing just relax in to it and feel what you are doing, go with the flow you will be surprised by the outcome.

Don’t worry that you may not be good enough, when doing this type of creative psychic work it’s not about who is the best artist, it is about the message that your art work brings.

Have a practice with a pen or pencil and see what you come up with, once you gain a little confidence why not try painting something, over time you will improve its like doing anything new it takes practice.

How to clear and deal with negative energy.

f781e3afe72ef64457a2a97c50b165ce

It’s important to remember for those of us that are sensitive or feel a lot of empathy for others to take time to clear your aura, especially if your developing your psychic abilities or working as a psychic, everyone of us has an aura it’s an energy field that surrounds us made up of many layers, it can extend up to 3 ft around us depending on your vibrational frequency.  Sometimes it can become out of balance or we pick up negative energy from the environment around us or people that we read for or come in contact with.

Cleansing your aura is a form of personal healing and spiritual and emotional well being, our aura continuously processes positive and negative information throughout the day about our experiences, by doing meditation, exercise, having a good diet, drinking only moderate alcohol and not smoking are the best ways to look after yourself, being a psychic or reader needs to be a lifestyle choice if you don’t look after yourself you can burn out, become ill or depressed.

I know that sometimes I can go out happy and in a good mood and by the time I get back I can feel heavy headed or negative emotions like anger or sadness sometime I can pick these up from the gym,  this type of environment it does attract people for many different reasons and some of the people there are depressed or have issues they are trying to work through and by going to the gym helps it them feel better which is great, but if you’re an empath like me you can end taking on that energy.  It can also happen in shopping centres, pubs, supermarkets anywhere that a lot of people tend to congregate going about their daily life.

One thing I have noticed over the years and something you should consider when picking a psychic or a reader is that an inexperienced reader or someone just starting out  and often it’s the ones that tend to offer free or cheap readings, (and of course many people will jump at the chance of a freebie!) Just be aware that this person may have taken on a lot of negative energy and not cleared themselves, if you think about it happy people don’t tend to have readings they only come to us when they have a problem and you can end up taking on all that negativity if you are really sensitive.

I have often had to clear after just receiving a message or email from someone let alone a reading, it can be in any form of contact I can pick up on the energy of the person right away, and if they are a sensitive or psychic I know when they don’t clear regularly and I have to then clear myself. Having had a un pleasant experience myself recently after being in contact with a psychic reader (I don’t feel that I should go into details as it may scare some of you) I’m told by my guides that this person wasn’t aware of this negative energy and that it had attach itself to them, although I’m guessing they probably would have eventually wondered why they were feeling off colour. So if you’re of a sensitive nature and you pick a reader because they seem cheap or they offer freebies and you could end feeling worse than you did before the reading.

Firstly trust your instincts and do your home work, check out the reader see how long they have been doing it and don’t fall for the old crap, I have been doing it for years! if they have been doing it for years they don’t offer free readings to everyone, go by recommendation and check out their website they should have a photograph of themselves on their clearly stating who they are, what training they have had  with lots of positive feedback.

Readers do have to start somewhere, if they are practicing or in training they should be honest and open about it. Ask yourself do you feel a connection to this person and do you feel they would give you good advice or are you just after a freebie.

Professional readers work with people day in and day out they know they have to clear and look after themselves in order to connect and give a positive experience.

If you are unfortunate to come into contact with or know that you are going to see someone that’s negative or always complaining then ask for extra protection from your guides, put the white light around you and ground yourself try to limit your time with them and only see them when you feel strong enough to cope with it, maybe ask yourself what value do they have in your life do they just want someone to unload on so they feel better and you end feeling bad. Family is different you may have to see them often or even live with them, then sage your house regularly and place crystals around the room or areas that they sleep or sit. Open the windows let in the fresh air let it blow through to clear the energy.

Here are some ideas you can try if you want to clear negative energy from your home or workplace.

1. Sea salt is commonly used in Feng Shui to get rid of negative energy and to allow a balanced chi to flow inside the home. The sea salt is either used alone or mixed with water and placed in certain areas of the home. Mix 5 – 6 tablespoons of sea salt in a bucket of water and mop the floors with the mixture. Or you can place a small bowl filled with sea salt in each corner of the house which faces the northeast and southwest directions. The bowls of salt should be left in an open space and not placed in a cupboard. It should be replaced every 2 months.

2. Clean rugs, curtains, walls, windows etc.  Every time you clean your home you are removing negative energy. Cleaning your home or workspace will make it lighter and more positive. This is a result of organizing, of ridding yourself of things you no longer need and removing toxic products from your environment. Just opening windows brings in fresh, positive energy.

3. Remove clutter. Things like old magazines and dirty clothes can trap a lot of negative energy in your house. Remove old items you no longer need. Keep coffee tables picked up and clean. Put your laundry in a laundry basket. Wash your dirty dishes and put them away. Negative energy needs objects to hang on to so it can remain around.

4. Loud noises. This is the reason the Chinese love fireworks. Loud noises break up energy patterns and allow them to disperse. Mother Nature does the same thing with the noise of thunder storms.

5. Open windows and let fresh air in and negative energy out.

6. A meditation once or twice a day in your living space will broadcast out a powerful positive vibration, making positive energy more powerful than negative energy. A proper meditation will saturate a space with uplifting energy for several hours.

7. Other space clearing techniques include burning candles, dowsing; smudging with herbs (white sage) or incense; clearing with bells, cymbals and singing bowls; and clearing with chanting. Burn lavender, mint or eucalyptus incense inside every room of the home. These scents will infuse positive energy into the home and will push out anything negative.

8. Rearrange the furniture, again negative energy needs something to “cling to.” Arrange your space with as much wide open space as possible, allowing any negative energy to disperse. But also the act of rearranging will cause this harmful energy to dissipate.

9.  Add living plants. Plants add colour, life, oxygen and positive energy to your home.

10. If all else fails then call in an expert, they will do the clearing for you and pick up on anything else that may be going on, like a un happy resident spirit.

A season, a reason, often it’s a lesson.

Earth-Angel

Have you ever thought that you didn’t meet a certain person by chance, that it was meant to happen, for whatever the reason? Sometimes people come into our lives that are not meant to be forever, for some of us it’s a season others it’s a reason and often it’s a lesson. Some of our relationships are rougher than others, but all end up an important part of our life journey.

So, here are 5 types of cosmic connections you may encounter on your journey:

  1. Those meant to awaken us.

These people come into our lives that are meant to stop us in our tracks, they will not allow us to move forward without realising that change is needed, this is where nothing ever seems to go according to plan, often there is always a bigger picture and just we have to wait for it to unfold.

  1. Those who remind us.

Sometimes we come across people who remind us of the path we are supposed to be on, often we get sidetracked and these people often come along temporarily and leave a lasting change inside your heart and soul and put us back on track.

  1. Those that help us grow.

These people are meant to help us grow as a person, they teach us things and lessons sometimes painful ones, and more than likely ones we would not have chosen or been able to do on our own, everything gets better with time, often it’s not what we get thrown at us, its how we deal with what we get, that makes us grow.

  1. Those that hold space for us.

There are people who come into our life who are meant to hold space for us. They make small talk and most of the time we don’t even get their names. This could be a stranger on a bus or even a worker in a coffee shop they show compassion and make us feel better and that there are nice people out there. I call these people earth angels they just show up at the right time, when we need a bit of kindness.

  1. Those that stay

One day when we are ready the Universe will give us someone special who will stay with us forever, someone who is our fate part or our life plan.  We  will encounter many people who stay, lasting friendships and close family but that one person that we all long for, is our soul mate that one person that just seems to make everything better.

Clear quartz, the witches favourite.

19959040_10155394674531772_3304140744206546932_n

Witches, if you are only going to have one crystal, then this is a must have. Quartz is one of the most versatile of crystals, and it is able to do just about everything you need. It boosts the powers of other crystals, focuses and directs energy, especially quartz points, and can be used for protection balancing, meditation, and dispelling negative energy.

All witches have a wand, although traditionally a wand is associated with wood rather than crystal, a crystal can be equally effective in directing the energy of the caster. Long pieces of quartz can be used to define the circle or simply to direct will when working.

We have to cleanse our crystals and there are many ways to charge them, by using moon water, moon light, even burying in the earth, one of the simplest ways is to leave crystals to charge on a bed or inside a geode of quartz, I do this often to the ones that I wear. Quartz is a charging crystal that rejuvenates your other crystals and leaves them cleansed and charged.

Quartz has protective properties and can be worn close to the body either in the form of jewellery or in a pocket or bra to protect the wearer. It can also be placed around the home for protection to your property.

Quartz can be used in a ritual, it can be worn as jewellery, sewn into ritual robes or even attached to magical tools, it helps channel the energy and is used for protection, to keep negativity out and enhance the safety of the circle and the participants.

For psychic dreams, if you place this crystal beneath your pillow, the quartz can assist you to have dreams of a prophetic nature.

During healing, quartz can be moved over the body this helps to heal any weak patches in the aura and restores energy.  When using quartz to heal remember to cleanse your stones after using as they will pick up any residue of negativity clinging to the aura.

Infused your crystal in water, ideally its best left overnight in the full moon. The water can then be used for cleansing your magic tools, and for home or work clearings and blessings.

Lastly, probably the most widely known use of clear quartz is the crystal ball. A crystal ball is used for divination, some seers see a physical image in the crystal and others use the surface to rest and clear their mind and allow them to either see images in their mind’s eye or to enable knowledge to come forward, this can take a lot of patience and practice as my development circle tribe will tell you.

Moon Child

Knowing which moon phase we are currently in can help us to arrange and run our lives more smoothly. Below is an introduction to the Moon Phases giving an insight into which is the best phase to do things in our day to day lives to help achieve the best result.

The New Moon

The New Moon, can be seen as a symbol of new beginnings, it is a good time to start new work projects and build new relationships, a time for new challenges and new cycles. This is not a time to analyze but to allow things to grow and flourish. Any new starts at this time will grow and develop. Our energy levels are usually high at this time.

The Crescent Moon

The Crescent Moon, can be seen as a time of transition when we become aware that although we are still influenced by the past, it is over and the promise of the future is yet to be revealed. There are things from the past that we may have to lay to rest before moving forwards to fulfil our hopes and dreams. You may find that this is a good time to open up and talk.

First Quarter Moon

The First Quarter Moon, is a time when things are starting to come to a peak you may feel a slight irritation but this is just due to the need to sort things out, as yet you may not know what needs sorting. Step back and assess things objectively. It’s a time for looking at ideas and searching for solutions to any problems that may have arisen. This can prove to be a very sensitive time, but can also bring you the courage needed to help you to move forward.

Gibbous Moon

The Gibbous Moon, is a good time to devote ourselves to that which has great meaning to us. We are able to use our mental abilities which are very clear during this time. You may have truly brilliant discoveries or ideas and can look clearly at what you have already accomplished. Due to our heightened energy levels we are able to give more of ourselves.

Full Moon

The Full Moon, often during this time we are able to see ourselves clearly and any hidden tensions within are revealed. We are able to see both sides of any issue and we are able to work on any imbalances. This is an excellent time to meditate in relation to any personal issues that may be concerning you. A time for acknowledgments and answers to things that may have been hidden from view until now. It is also a good time for romance and fertility.

Disseminating Moon

The Disseminating Moon, this is often when we are aware of what we have already learned and we have probably have learned our lessons well. It is a time to take any social obligations sincerely. You may feel strongly that you want to pass on those hard learned lessons.  At this time you may wish to share your knowledge and wisdom with others.

Last Quarter Moon

The Last Quarter Moon, is a time when all aspects of our lives that need balancing are magnified, a time to tie up those loose ends, and a time of conscious action. You  have the ability to choose how to act or react and you are in charge of the outcome of any difficult situations. It is up to us whether we act or not.

Balsamic Moon

The Balsamic Moon, is a time to reap what you have sown. If you have learned those lessons then you are now able to move on. This is a time of karma, this is when the outcome, is out of our hands and we have to accept the decisions we have made previously. This is a good time to let go of the past and get ready to move on.

The Lynx Spirit Animal

th.jpg

Recently I did a shamanic journey to see what would come up for me; I do them every now and again for guidance. I popped on one of my shamanic drumming CD’s and it wasn’t long before I was in the jungle, it was brilliant!

Along my jouney I could hear the sounds, smell the earthy tones and see all the sights around me, while walking along with my one of my guides I noticed a large cat, it turned and looked right at me with large green eyes, I wasn’t sure what type it was, upon returning from my meditation I looked up the types of large cats, it was the Lynx that resonated with me.

I thought it was interesting and that you might like to read the meanings and lessons of having a Lynx as a spirit messenger.

Here are some of the meanings I found while doing some research on the internet.

The lynx spirit animal is known to be a very excellent hunter, and is considered the master seer because of its gift of second sight. The lynx symbolism can teach you so many things that will help you understand the spiritual mysteries of the world, and how you can best apply this knowledge and wisdom to your daily life.

The meaning of the lynx points to your gift of ‘hearing’ other people’s thoughts and seeing into their souls, as well as their intentions and thoughts. You can pick up on vibrational energies and use them to determine your actions and responses.

The lynx symbolism also speaks about instinct and the powers of observation. You can always rely on these things, especially when you are feeling confused or disconnected.

The lynx totem represents your vision and foresight, and your ability to see through lies and deceptions and find the unseen. This helps you develop awareness to the world around you.

The lynx meaning also has something to do with valuing your promises and taking care of people’s confidence in you. When you give someone your word, you must honour it.

You are being encouraged to trust your instincts. You should also awaken your abilities if you want to advance in life.

The lynx meaning will help you determine what’s real and practical from what’s superstitious and imaginary. It will help you become more watchful about the people around you and the events that are unfolding before you.

When the lynx spirit animal comes walking into your life, know that not everything is exactly what it appears to be. You need to use your abilities if you want to see things or people for what they truly are.

Doing so will help you avoid disappointment, hurt, and betrayal. Seeing the truth in matters will guide you to make the best choice that will benefit you today and in the future.

Seeing the lynx spirit animal means that you should stop and smell the roses, for love will soon manifest in your life. You may need to open your eyes first to the deception that some people are playing on you, but once you get this out of the way, you will be able to see all the romantic possibilities clearly.

The lynx meaning will encourage you to understand your life truths, and even reconsider the values that they hold. This is a good time to be more flexible, adventurous, and light-hearted when it comes to love.

Positive Traits of the Lynx Spirit Animal

You have the most fun and creativity when you’re solitary, but you also unleash your playful and less serious side when you’re in the mood. You know how to have fun, and you get things done.

You value your alone time because this allows you to discover truths about yourself and others. Knowing the truth gives you purpose, understanding, and connection.

Having the lynx totem makes you comfortable with who you are. You don’t need anyone’s approval or validation.

You have a very calm and quiet nature. But when you speak, everybody listens.

You are a very patient person. You wait for the perfect timing.

People like to share their secrets with you because they can trust you to keep them. At the same time, they don’t want to be around you because they know you can see through their facades.

Even if you don’t look it, you know how to play and have fun, and you can be very passionate about things. Most of all, you give importance to the people in your life, even if you don’t show it all the time.

You also don’t like to discuss your feelings because you know that you’re quite weak when arguing about them. You don’t like being wrong, being taught a lesson, or losing, and you will just choose to shut up when you’re in an uncomfortable confrontation.

People have a hard time getting you to communicate at command because you will just do so when you feel like it. When you don’t like a person, you will remain completely shut off.

Call on your Lynx Spirit Animal when:

  • You are feeling challenged spiritually or emotionally.
  • Listen to your heart, because there you will find the truth and wisdom that you need. Life will not always make sense, but you can always figure it out by tuning in to what your heart is telling you.
  • You are going through a tough life lesson.
  • There will always be ups and downs, but they don’t last forever. Be strong and do what you can to survive this challenging period!
  • You need to be more focused when it comes to achieving your goals.

Stop talking and start doing. Work quietly and determinedly, and don’t focus on the noise that aims to distract you.

The lynx spirit animal is reminding you that everything that is hidden will be revealed one day. The meaning of the lynx is also asking you to pause before you respond to avoid putting yourself in awkward social situations. Sometimes being silent is the best response.

The lynx symbolism wants you to address insecurities that you have so that you can grow and progress to the next level. If you will not do anything positive about them, you will be stuck with this version of yourself, and you will have a hard time achieving the life that you desire.

Spirit Guides

tenrnrgf

We are all blessed with spirit guides who surround us and support us. We usually have around four sometimes more. Our main spirit guide is with us from birth. The rest of the guides tend to join us throughout our life. Their assistance can be both practical and spiritual in nature.

Most of us forget who we were before we reincarnate and where we’ve come from and what our reason is for being here. Spirit guides know that it is challenging to be incarnated here on earth and keep a connection to your higher self and your soul’s purpose.

The role of your guides is to gently but consistently guide you by intuitive nudges to stay on track with your soul’s purpose. If something is in your purpose to accomplish, you will find the support from your spirit guides they will hook you up with resources, people, and money, books to help you reach your goals, sometimes they offer insight and comfort when you feel lost.

You don’t need to have really well developed psychic abilities to begin working with your spirit guides. You may not be able to perceive them at all times but your guides can certainly perceive you. You only need to set an intention and they will pick up on it. Or you can speak to them out loud and they will hear you.

Your spirit guides work to help you manifest your desires into the physical, often in unexpected ways! I recently realized that I have a particular guide who hooks me up with the clients who could benefit from a session with me.

Be open-minded and the Universe will send you the resources you need in ingenious and creative ways. If you expect to receive help through one particular channel, you may miss or discard the help that shows up in other ways.

The Raven, The Magic & The Journey

5825241747cce5ec9a8aac03982a7854

Through out time, the Raven has carried the medicine of magic. This has been the case in many cultures. We honour the Raven as the bringer of magic, it is sacred, in the medicine ways. Those who fear Raven may do so because they have been dabbling in areas in which they had no knowledge, Shamanic journeying, magical workings or a spell that may have backfired on them. Rather than analysing the dark side of sorcery, one should realize that you will only fear the Raven if you need to learn about your inner fears or your own created demons.

Raven magic is a powerful medicine that can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the unknown or the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form. Some call it the Great Mystery. The Great Mystery existed before all other things came into being, spirit lives inside the void and the Raven is the messenger of the void.

If a Raven appears in your spread, dream or journey you are about to experience a change in consciousness. This may involve walking a spiritual path or doing something new if you are already learning the ways of spirit. It would be a signal brought to you by the Raven that says, ” You have earned the right to see and experience a little more of life’s magic.”

In Native teachings the colour black means many things, but it does not mean bad or evil. Black can mean the seeking of answers, the void, or spiritual. The blue-black of the Raven contains an iridescence that speaks of the magic of darkness a changeability of shape and form that brings an awakening in the process.

Raven is the guardian of ceremonial magic and in absent healing. In many healing circles, the Raven guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel disease or illness, the Raven brings in wellness.

It is the messenger that carries all energy flows of ceremonial magic between the ceremony itself and the intended destination. For instance, if a ceremony is being performed to send energy to a disaster area where people need courage and strength, the Raven would be the courier for that energy flow. The intention could be to allow the people of the devastated area to feel the concern and support of the participants in the ceremony.

If you have chosen a Raven, and then magic is in the air, don’t bother trying to figure it out, you can’t. It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen. The deeper mystery, however, is how you will respond to the synchronicity of this alchemical moment. You can recognize it and use it to further enhance your growth, you can accept it as a gift from spirit, try not to limit the power given by trying to explain it away.

It may be time to call upon a Raven as a courier to carry an intention this may be some healing energy, a thought or a message. The Raven is the patron of smoke signals or spirit messages represented by smoke. So if you want to send a message to spirit, in order to contact your ancestors call a Raven or possibly, the ancients may be calling you to give you the answers that you seek.

Remember, this magic came from the void of darkness, and the challenge is to bring it to light and in doing so you will honour the magic within.

Shamanic Meditation Classes

th shaman med

Shamanism for thousands of years has helped with personal intuitive development and divination. It is effective in working to heal the self. Shamanism can support and sustain positive personal growth and enhance your spiritual connection. Journeying is a powerful meditative state. It takes us into a very special level of consciousness that helps us work more deeply with our intuition with spiritual guidance.

Prolonged hypnotic drumming is used to promote relaxation and the experience of a trance like visionary awareness. Through journeying, we can find alternative realms during our visions and dreams through spirit travel we can open the door to an awareness to other worlds. These other worlds are sources of the energy, creativity and passion, finding our way there can be a blessing that brings us wisdom and self-empowerment in a positive, healing way.

Journeying is often done lying down, with our eyes closed, while in meditation we travel to other realms. There are generally three types of journeys that can be undertaken.

Lower World can be a dimension of healing and self- empowerment. Upper World can be a place of wisdom and teaching. In Middle World, where spirit is present and ready to work with us.

Lie down and get comfortable, breathe deeply, close your eyes, allow yourself to be carried by the rhythm of the drum. Focus on a specific intent such as “I want to meet and ask advice of my Spirit Helpers” or “I want to talk with my Guardian Angel” or “I want to work on healing for myself.

We begin by focusing and going to a safe place. Many people choose a beautiful garden or beach, and then look for an entryway into the earth, maybe through a hollow in a tree, you are carried by the sound of the drumming as you let yourself explore this wonderful place, seeking out your Spirit Helpers. The Lower World often has a loving, earthy feel. It is frequently inhabited by Spirit Guides who are deeply connected to Mother Earth, mythical animals and elfin creatures.

When you encounter a being in your traveling, whether its human, animal, angel or spirit , ask it if it is in fact your Spirit Guide, Helper, Teacher or Power Animal. You can ask its name, what wisdom or message it has for you, why is it in your life, what you can or should work on together. Then, let your Journey proceed, doing as your Helper directs. At the end of the journey you hear the callback rhythm of the drum a sound like four insistent rapping on a door, or when you feel you have completed your Journey’s you can tell your Helpers that you wish return to ordinary reality.

Remember to thank them for their assistance, lastly you will hear a series of light, rapid drumbeats, during this rhythm, allow yourself to drift gently back into your body. Reverse the path you took during your spirit travel. There will then be a second series of the four rapping’s on the door. That’s the time to let yourself properly reconnect with your body. Slowly, gently open your eyes. Come back to realty.

These classes will start in June on a Sunday afternoon in Chelmsford town centre, cost £10 if you would like to join us message me you will need to put your name down and payment is up front.
