Spirit guides and angels are trying to shape our thoughts and actions to be eco-conscious, which is essential in the time of climate change. In this quick video, I share my story of how I was guided to start making handkerchiefs as a hobby and how it turned into a subtle form of environmental activism!
In this article I share how energy healing and spiritual work can help you step into your self-power and fearlessly show the world your authentic self. You can also watch the accompanying video.
Being in alignment with your self-power enables you to be truly authentic. Being authentic is expressing your soul’s essence – and this is where those of us on the spiritual path are asked to shine.
There’s a huge wave of people having spiritual awakenings now and for some there is a feeling of urgency to step onto their divine path. What they discover is that they need to release old wounding, limiting beliefs and energy imprints that are holding them back, particularly when it comes to self-power.
WHAT IS HEALTHY SELF-POWER?
The solar plexus chakra, the third chakra around the belly button, is where we find our self-power and our courage to express ourselves authentically.
Bringing the solar plexus chakra into balance can allow for huge personal transformation. And when this chakra is in harmony we can manifest our life’s purpose and desires.
When the solar plexus is out of balance, we have trouble being authentic, which can cause a feeling of discontent (this feeling helps us know we need to be more authentic in our choices!)
ENERGY HEALING REMOVES BLOCKS
Sometimes you can work through the issues that are holding you back with shadow work techniques. However, strong energy imprints can be harder to shift and really need energy manipulation by an experienced energy healer such as myself.
The way I work as an energy healer is with master healer guides and angels coming through me as a channel. (You can read my story about how I became an energy healer here.)
My guides show me through my clairvoyant gifts where to work on the body, obstructions to remove, or where to channel healing energy. Sometimes guides and angels are working on the client alongside of me.
Both current life issues and past life issues can cause energy blocks in the chakras, as I will explain with some examples below.
CURRENT LIFE: SELF-DOUBT & FEAR
An example of a current life issue that caused a blocked solar plexus follows. I was shown that my client had a lot of self-doubt that came from childhood.
The self-doubt was so strong that it continued to be an influence throughout her adult years and was affecting her career choices.
When I began the energy healing, I clairvoyantly saw the energy block as a tall and wide lump over her belly.
As I worked to remove that heavy stagnant energy, I saw the lid of the lump come off and a dark smoke rise up for quite some time – I asked the guides what the energy was and heard “fear and self-doubt”.
This low-vibrational energy was effectively stopping her from going after her dreams, and lowering her expectations for what she could achieve in her life.
It’s no wonder that she was guided to find me and book an energy healing session. Her guides had been dropping hints everywhere, including feathers falling out of her hair, to grab her attention.
And because she was just awakening to spirituality and the guides were insistent I tell her she had a bigger life purpose, she was more motivated to shift out of the thinking pattern of self-doubt. A whole new path was awaiting her!
PAST LIFE: CLASH OF BELIEFS
Many of my clients are lightworkers and often they find themselves stalled in their path, unable to use their self-power or express themselves and their beliefs due to fear of being ridiculed or worse.
What happened to lightworkers in past lives is absolutely deplorable and it is no wonder we have such difficulty coming out of the closet. But now is a much safer time to use our gifts – and we are needed!
In the following example, fear had such a strong hold on my client that she was having trouble moving forward in her lightworker capacity.
Her self-power had been completely shut down by an authority in a past life – she was simply not allowed to be herself or use her gifts because of the beliefs of others.
Over the course of two energy sessions, the guides, angels and I removed the energy imprints from her field, including a lot of fear held in the kidneys.
Using my clairvoyant gift, I saw a big metal chain wrapped around her ankles and removed it. No wonder she was not able to step forward in her divine mission!
It was now time for my client to take back her power and share her gifts.
SELF-ACCEPTANCE IS KEY
As a healer in many lifetimes, in this life I have had to overcome huge fears of becoming an outcast for expressing myself authentically.
Stepping into my own power has been all about self-love – accepting myself 100 per cent, including my gifts as a channel and healer.
To be in our power and authentic, we need to fully accept ourselves and acknowledge our uniqueness.
And, as I write this, my guides are telling me that the more we accept our intuitive gifts, the more gifts will become available to us!
MAKE AUTHENTIC CHOICES
Making choices based on external influences such as what other people think rather than our inner knowing weakens our self-power. It’s simply not authentic!
What other people think of you is none of your business, and what you are guessing they think about you is probably well off the mark!
Or perhaps you feel pressured to take a path you don’t truly want. It’s fairly common that people do trainings or studies that their parents want them to do, while their true leaning is towards something else.
Some people stay in loveless marriages because of conditioned beliefs from society or religious institutions. Meanwhile, they plunge themselves into bad health or depression because they are so out of alignment with their soul’s plan.
Inauthentic choices rarely stick and I see many clients who come to a crossroads of either staying in misery or taking the leap of faith and following their passion.
Make choices that are in alignment with your heart. Feel into your heart and follow its calling.
Our higher self already knows our life purpose or divine mission and gives us inner guidance, too. Listen to it!
Best of all, when following the greater plan for your soul, you come into a vibration of peace and contentment.
CO-CREATE YOUR LIFE
My Star Team would like to remind you that this life is for you to create. Co-creating with the divine is working together to manifest our heart’s desires (read my manifestation blog for more on this).
Co-creation often requires action on our part, and this is where the solar plexus is important – if this chakra is balanced you will have the confidence, motivation and willpower to take action.
When repeating the following affirmations, place your hands on your belly, over the solar plexus chakra. Feel the sensation here each time you say an affirmation.
I AM POWER
I AM POWERFUL
IT IS SAFE FOR ME TO BE POWERFUL
I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR ME
I ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY LIFE
Try these easy yoga breathing practices to quiet your mind, calm your body and connect with your intuition.
I am a 500-hour qualified yoga teacher and have been teaching gentle hatha yoga since 2006. Yoga breathing, known as pranayama, has always been a wonderful discovery for my yoga students both young and old, as it is often easier than meditation and creates a calm feeling.
Why practice yoga breathing?
BALANCE YOUR ENERGY BODY
Pranayama is a sanskrit word meaning control of the breath and the prana, ie the energy, it contains. When followed correctly, pranayama practices can move the energy around your body and balance it for optimum health.
CALM YOUR MIND
The yoga breathing techniques I share below can calm a busy, stressed or anxious mind. You can do them anywhere, anytime. Children and adults can use these breathing practices.
PREPARE FOR MEDITATION
The yoga breathing techniques offered here are an easy way to slow down your thoughts, so it’s a great way to prepare for your meditation practice. A breathing practice may help you quickly go deep into stillness during meditation.
CONNECT WITH INTUITION
If you’re looking to develop your psychic abilities or intuition, yoga breathing practices can help you quiet and focus your mind to be in a receptive mode. Intuition is all about receiving! Read my blog about meditation for intuition.
EASE ASCENSION SYMPTOMS
Body aches and pains from strong ascension energies such as incoming light codes and solar flares can be eased by the belly breath practice I share below. I particularly recommend this practice when you are receiving personal ascension activations, upgrades or healings from your guides – breathing deeply lets your body relax and accept what is happening. Read my blogs about ascension.
How yoga breathing works
We can easily use the breath to calm our mind and body by taking deep and long breaths. Remember:
Slow, long breaths are calming
Fast, short breaths create anxiety
Our mind can also create a sense of calm or a sense of anxiety through our quality of thinking, that’s why mindfulness meditation is helpful.
Breathing deeply brings more oxygen into the body for healthy functioning. With a deep breath you can get 7 more times oxygen than with a shallow breath!
Most people breathe shallow and it can take some effort to breathe deeply – if this is you, just practice and it will soon become natural.
FOCUS YOUR MIND
Yoga breathing requires you to focus your attention on the breath and not let your mind get distracted by thoughts or external noises. This has the effect of bringing your mind to more stillness or a “quiet” place.
4 basic yoga breathing practices
While you can do pranayama anywhere, a quiet place with a calm atmosphere will help you relax more.
Sit up straight so you can breathe deeply and the lungs can expand fully.
The simplest calming breath is to focus on breathing in deeply and sighing the air out. Try to breathe in through the nose unless you have a blocked nose.
Breathe deeply in through the nose and breath out through the mouth to make a ssssssssssss sound with your tongue.
Humming Bee Breath
Close your eyes, press your thumbs on the flaps of your ears to shut out external noise.
Breathe in deeply through the nose, breath out with a closed mouth and hum like a bee.
Practice for 1-3 minutes. Keep your eyes closed and notice the feeling.
Lie on your back. More comfortable for your back: bend your legs, feet on the floor, knees resting on each other.
Place your hands on your belly. Breathe deeply through your nose into the base of your belly in a slow and measured way – don’t rush this!
As the lungs fill with air the belly naturally rises. As you slowly breath out all the air the belly naturally falls.
Focus your mind on the movement of the breath and the feeling of your hands rising and falling with the belly.
Note: You may like to place one hand on your heart, the other hand on your belly.
The current ascension energies are supporting heart chakra clearing and heart awakening (opening) for the collective.
On the night of Easter Sunday I heard an insistent song message in my head: “clear the way, clear the way”. The lyrics are from a kirtan song about Ganesha, the Hindu elephant god who removes obstacles on the spiritual path (read my blog about him).
That same morning I woke up with similar lyrics looping in my head: “it’s falling away, it’s falling away” – an Alex Lloyd song called Gender, which talks about societal conformity. Okay, so my spirit guides were wanting to tell me something!
I tuned in to receive the message my Star Team had been hinting at all day: our hearts are having a big energetic clearing and fear is falling away. I pulled cards from two different oracle decks and both cards had pictures of creatures with wings lifted for take-off – a hummingbird representing joy and a unicorn representing emotional freedom (see images below). This feeling of freedom is around the corner for many of us who are having our hearts open wider as old emotions, beliefs and unhelpful energy imprints are cleared.
A few days later I sat in a park enjoying the morning sun and noticed two teenaged brothers sitting on a bench nearby. I watched them get up and the eldest assist the younger boy, then they linked elbows and walked off. Just this simple act of love between brothers had me crying behind my sunglasses.
As people walked by I was hearing from my Star Team that we all need human connection – we are wired for physical touch, that the separation that Covid19 brought into our communities needs to be restored and we need to open our hearts again, and let go of any fear.
I was surprised by my sudden tears, but it made sense the next day when I became aware of my heart undergoing energy healing – this time without any effort of my own, assisted by my guides and angels. All I had to do was let it happen.
REVEALING UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
I had a similar experience of ascension symptoms last September, which I called an expansion of the heart and a clearing of painful emotions to allow for self-worth – read the blog. Heart awakening for most of us does not seem to be achieved in one go. I’ve had many heart-opening experiences over the years and each time I go through this kind of “tune-up”, my vibration shifts upwards – it’s absolutely palpable, both in how I feel and how I react to the world – my perception shifts too.
My rising vibration also means that I no longer align with some people. I’ve learned over many years to let this be and not allow emotional attachments to keep me stuck in a loop. Sometimes those friends shift in vibration later and we come back into alignment, but often it’s a case of new friendships coming in at a higher frequency. So don’t despair if this is happening to you – just let everything unfold naturally.
I truly marvel at the process of heart awakening – it is gentle and nurturing, timed perfectly with an individual’s unique soul growth. From my own experience, I can tell you that the guidance I receive from my Star Team helps me to make the most of the ascension energies and to stay on track in my spiritual development. For example, during our winter months of lockdown I was personally guided to do intensive forgiveness work and to release emotions that had been suppressed, then a couple of months later the heart expansion came and I was ready for it.
SELF-LOVE IS PRIORITY
Currently the guidance coming through for many of my clients is around self-love. In one intuitive guidance session I was shown an image in my mind of a body with cracks down the centre with the glowing Divine light shining outwards. The guides were telling us that self-love is already within us – it’s just waiting to be felt. This client was asked to do her forgiveness work and heart healing to reveal that self-love which would be very important for her going forward in her Divine mission.
In 2019 I wrote a blog about self-love when my guides used the Whitney Houston song, Greatest Love Of All to convey an important message: “Because the greatest love of all is happening to me / I found the greatest love of all inside of me / The greatest love of all is easy to achieve / Learning to love yourself it is the greatest love of all”.
One of the biggest lessons of life, if not the biggest lesson, is to learn to love yourself. I feel that we’d be a lot happier and kinder to each other if we had healthy self-love. And this is where we are headed!
In December 2019 I was very excited to channel a clear and strong message about our transcendence into the love frequency. As I type this, I’m hearing that despite the difficulties of Covid19 last year, we did well in preparing for this frequency upgrade. If anything, we have become more resilient!
Certainly, people awakened during Covid19 lockdowns around the world. And my blog posts about ascension symptoms are some of the most popular on my website. So many of us are seeking answers to what is happening at both a personal and a grander scale. Ascension is an interesting topic and is constantly changing. I am grateful to have guides who inform me of what’s happening with the energy, so that I can share that guidance with you.
SELF-CARE FOR ASCENSION SYMPTOMS
Ascension energies can be very strong and overwhelming for the body, however self-care practices can reduce the side effects. Try these ideas:
- Drink filtered water and more than usual during strong energies (you may notice you are more thirsty)
- Intuitively observe required dietary changes (read my blog about ascension dietary changes)
- Practice meditation and yoga nidra relaxation
- Spend time in nature to ground your energy
- Sleep when you need to, as you may be more tired
- Take a bath with Epsom salts to clear your energy field
- Belly breathing and other pranayama practices from yoga (read my blog about yoga breathing)
