October’s Hunter’s Full Moon – Leap of Faith

October’s Hunter’s Full Moon – Leap of Faith

Tomorrow’s Full Moon falls on a number “7” day which has a high spiritual vibrancy. These is one of those stand alone number days aligned with the lunar calendar which can be interesting energy wise. What will be compelling is the need to break free from the norm and to be more “individual” in your approach. A word of warning through, as this could lead to fractious relationships and situations. 

Plan and do your leg work before acting as there is a tendency to be reckless at times when these sort of days appear in our lives. Nothing to worry about, just double check everything and think things through before acting. 

The Full Moon falls on 5.10.2017 which if we added the numbers up, 5+1+0+2+0+1+7= 16, totals to the number 7. Seven brings solid foundations, spiritual pursuits and a hunger to learn more about your personal direction and universal energy. Most of us will find that we want to “shine” and be heard not just seen. This is the time to step out of the shadows and be true to yourself.

The lunar energy of 2017 has so far been pushing and prodding us to get to this point where we can let go of fear and to stop being comfortable in the shadow aspect of our personality. The time has come, with the help of the universe, Spirit and the powers that may be to step forward and be counted.

*If you have been feeling a little spaced out or like you are about to get a cold but never does happen, then listen up. This means that you may have a number of things on your mind, and struggling to focus on one productive thought or project which could push you forward. Decision making is not your strongest point and you are likely to be led rather to lead. Tomorrow’s energy will nudge you out of your comfort zone and force you to make a decision. So take charge, put everything on paper and go through the list and let your intuition guide you. 

*The other physical symptom some of us have been experiencing and which is rather common during the lunar cycle is headaches. Our natural instinct, consciously or unconsciously in the face of change, is to resist. The lunar energy will be draining as it will be using up energy from within our physical body. This reduces our water content and causes us to be dehydrated, which we know leads to headaches and imbalance. It is always a good idea to increase our intake of filtered warm or room temperature water close to the New or Full moon.  Lunar cycles enhance our ability to detox and rid ourselves of limiting believes and the shadow, which inevitably will cause our body to detox as well. Water will accelerate the process and flush everything out. The more spiritual rationale for headaches close to a lunar cycle is resistance and mental conflict. It is likely that you are over thinking something and putting a considerable amount of stress on yourself for no reason other than to want “perfection”. You are likely someone who feels they “have to” rather than “want to” therefore piling on the stress to be everything to everyone. The more you left go of this need to be perfect, the headaches will ease this week and you will find clarity and determination.

Over arching Spiritual Message for Oct 5th Full Moon

The message for this full moon cuts deep into our core, the essence of who we are and where we want to go. If you act on your feelings, learn from it and use this guide then transformation is possible. There is a call now to stand up in your own two feet, to be an individual rather than to hide behind others. The time is ripe for you to take charge of your life and your career. You CAN do it on your own. 

Leap of Faith An original acrylic painting by Angela Mitchell

The energy is particularly powerful and can, often be life changing if tapped into properly. Stop hesitating and use your practical and sensible self to clearly etch out a plan. Big yourself up at work and stand out!

This is also the time to put yourself FIRST. Bump yourself up on the list of priorities and make yourself the VIP of your own life. Stop running around for others. Look after yourself, be kind to yourself and be there for YOU. So go book a spa day, treat yourself to a nice lunch, create space in the house for your hobby, spend some time on your own, go out and have fun or even just get your hair done! Do all the things you have put off because you don’t have time, money or that others need it more.  

The Hunter’s Moon appears on our skies earlier than regular full moons which means the dusky sky is illuminated brilliantly by the full moon (weather permitting!) which gave the Native Americans in ancient times, more time to hunt. This is the signal for the winter preparation. This means in our modern times, that we are given a unique opportunity to take a leap of faith and to be true to ourselves. The bright light of the moon will illuminate our shadow self to transform and learn. Tomorrow’s moon will give you the strength and conviction to step up and let the light shine on you for once.

Take advantage of this gift from the universe and do the full moon ritual to accelerate the energy right now. Follow the steps on the guide here or if you want an in depth explanation on how to cleanse your crystals, smudge the house and to write your wishlist then read my complete moon ritual guide here.

Please feel free to share this guidance with family and friends. I love hearing from you so please do leave a comment if this resonates with you.

Happy full Moon

A Medium’s Life is Never “Normal”

A Medium’s Life is Never “Normal”

People often find my life and my work in particular, fascinating. It is probably because I really love what I do and I am passionate about it. I have experiences which I cannot even share sometimes for fear of being called “weird” or to avoid being questioned on its authenticity because it is not part of their belief system or reality. Being a medium is very much about being open to experiences that the Spirit world want to share with us. We get to astral travel, connect with spirit in every shape or form, hear, see or even taste, as our senses are heightened. 

Growing up as a child in Malaysia, I used to grapple with the dark and sleeping alone. I had times where I would wet the bed because I was absolutely terrified of my experiences. I mean wouldn’t you be if you saw a being move up around the ceiling? Feel a tightening sensation  spread across your entire body? Now, what if I told you that I had just got into bed so was awake and my eyes was CLOSED but I could see through my eyelids? I could see every detail of the room. This was because my third eye had already developed when I was ten I could see through it sometimes. 

After my rigorous training and spiritual development, which led to working professionally as a Medium, I am never afraid of Spirit. I don’t feel the same way about “visitors” as when i was a child. I know that tightening sensation now was energy and the being I saw was probably a guide or from a different dimension. If only I knew what I know now then! 

On Friday I unintentionally stayed up awake. I had a workshop to run in the morning so I was keen on an early night. However earlier in the day, my mother called to remind me to try to stay awake for Mahashivatri – a night in tribute to Shiva which takes place before a new moon. The theme for this annual spiritual celebration is to overcome darkness and ignorance. This is a very important event for those who believe in the mind, body and spirit connection. Shiva is seen as the master that teaches, improves and oversees this aspect of humanity. People fast, eat vegetarian food, meditate, chant and spend the time on self reflection. Most temples are awash with lights, colour and people sitting with their legs crossed and spines straight throughout the night. There are 12 Shivaratri per year but the main one, usually falls in February or March. This year it was on February 24th.  This special day is huge for those on the spiritual path as Shiva, helps to awaken new spiritual awareness and gifts. 

With all of this in mind, I decided that I couldn’t stay awake so I went to bed armed with some guided sleep meditation music. After tossing and turning, I decided to sit up in bed and listen to some Shiva chants from my Youtube channel. I am hesitating as I write this as I know it will sounds completely crazy!

I felt my soul leave my body and there was a short moment of grief which was overtaken by excitement. I then saw below me, the road outside my house. I continued to travel up and then I felt myself, so light and weightless, travel further up into the sky.  After a moment, darkness surrounded me and I thought that was it. I then realised I was in a cave. It was a big one with a lot of space around me. I could’t see the top but the wall around me had what I initially thought was graffiti but on closer inspection, turned out to be pre-historic drawings. 

I could sense water running close by but my attention was taken over by the fresh air and light that I suddenly felt. I saw the opening and then heard the shriek of the flying prehistoric animal that flew past me. I saw it in the distance and then the massive landscape below me. It was a beautiful sight and simply indescribable. I have had out of body (OOB) experiences before but never so vivid and to a different time in history.

Once I felt I was back on the bed again, I saw my father standing near me and next to him, a guide and someone else. Before I could take that all in, waves of green, white and sparkly yellow light spilled into the room. The door was closed, the curtains drawn and my eyes were shut. 

The lights formed long continuous and intersected lines moved and danced around me. I felt so honoured and happy to be a witness to this special scene in front of me.  In the corner of my eye I saw several other lights but these were different. They were like the lights of stars we see in the sky. Bright, determined and powerful. These I knew were lights of Spirit and Angels. They sparkled and stayed passive while the green/white light made patterns around me. They reminded me of the Aurora Borealis lights. 

There were a few more other things that happened that night but thankfully I managed to fall asleep at 5.30am and had less than three hours of sleep before my event. I didn’t feel tired at all while I was teaching and I came home really energised. 

On Saturday night, I was filled with so much energy, and I knew one of my guides wanted to work with me. So I asked my husband to go off to bed while I picked up my paint brushes and set to work until 4am.

Original Acrylic on Canvas painting by Angela Mitchell

I just knew I had to paint a robin but I never paint animals or landscape. My art is from inspiration so I was a little apprehensive. I couldn’t believe how easily the robin appeared on the canvas. A very curious, inquisitive, and friendly fella who looks like he has had a rough time. Somehow he found this little haven away from the rain to rest. 

While robins are often referred to as spirit signs, they are in Shamanism, a sign of growth and renewal. If you look back at the New Moon & Solar Eclipse guide from Friday, there is a theme about renewal there. Scruffy brings with him a message about letting go of the past to be able to move forward in the present. When we work to release the past, then you can refresh and go on your new journey. He also helps with self expression and working hard but also resting. We must listen to our bodies and the signs, to know when to push ourselves and when to take time off.

Scruffy wants us to know that our spirit family and friends are working hard to send us healing, in every possible way. From a chance meeting with someone who makes you smile, to unexpected abundance to closure on a disagreement. Believe that change is coming to your life and things will work out.

Rise Above and Let your Soul Fly this Snow Moon

Rise Above and Let your Soul Fly this Snow Moon

Don’t forget to put your crystals out and smudge the house tomorrow. Release the old to bring in the new. Drink lots of water because the energy is intense and lots of shifting going on right now. Headaches, digestive issues and tiredness will be experienced. Body will be dehydrated and using up lots of energy so water is important right now.

The theme for this Snow Moon is to “Rise Above”

February’s Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse & Comet

The Full Moon arrives on February 11 at 12.33am with the message “rise above” whatever that is causing upset. We have to remember that while most energy boosts supplied by the moon and the universal shifts affect people in a positive way, some people have an inbuilt karmic filter that rejects it. This will bring out the “ugly” in them which  in turn will cause them to attack people who are levelling up. The challenge is to not react or be drawn in to their “story” which very often involves conflict and negativity. 
How many of you have felt shifts within you this last month? It could be a shift in your physical and emotional self where you FEEL different somehow, or realise the way you think about certain aspects of your life has changed. There is a major shift in the consciousness and our auric field has also been energised. 
Eclipses are often seen as a special time where the Spirit world can enter our space easily. In the old days, eclipses were deemed evil as it encouraged “ghosts” to cause mischief. As a medium I know that this was a misconception by people who feared spirits, often their own relatives who came with love. These days eclipses are seen as portals or breach in space for energy shifts. This is a time to go inwards and in yoga, it is a good time to reduce intake of carbs and heavy food as the digestion will be affected.
You may also be feeling the need to de-clutter and re-organise. your home, paper work or even people who you want to spend time with. There is a strong urge to get everything sorted out right now. You will have a busy and fast paced year with everything falling into place.Pets, especially dogs will be extra sensitive to energy and Spirit so notice where in the room they look at or bark. Calm them down by putting your hands between their shoulder blades. This will help to open their heart chakra and reassure them.Comets are fast and are free from outside influence. They travel at their own speed. This energy that is coming our way is all about MANIFESTING! So use this power packed energy weekend to manifest what you want. I have a special workshop on this in March so don’t miss out!

Full Moons are a great time to smudge the house and do your rituals. I have written a free guide for you to follow. 

Please do share with family and friends. 
Special 2017 New Year Guidance – 7 ways to tap into the Energy

Special 2017 New Year Guidance – 7 ways to tap into the Energy

There is no doubt that 2016 was a difficult year, but throughout it, there were lessons to be learned, people to be loved, laughter, friendship, growth and love.

We have become more resillient, wiser, aware and open to new challenges. 2016 saw the UK shaken up by the Brexit vote – to LEAVE. A huge lesson for the country and those who like to stay in their comfort zones. We can take personal lessons from this situationImage result for 2017. People tend to want everything to stay the same. There are many who will rather stay in a dead end job or a unhealthy relationship because it is familiar and maybe even easy. But then change is forced on them – losing their job or their partner decides to leave them, giving them no other choice except to change.  Life will not stay the same just because you want it to. Be prepared to move, evolve and change or life will do it for you, painfully. 

2016 has prepared us to expect the unexpected. This was evident in the US elections. Everyone expected Hillary to win as it was expected that experience would win over controversy. The laws of the universe is changing so has our rules. 2017 is a year of ACTION. We had spent enough time contemplating what we want and how we are going to get it so now the time is ripe for getting things done.

Don’t over think things this year. Try something and if you fail, take it as a trial run. People will judge you no matter what you do. There will always be someone saying something about nothing. So listen to yourself and be proud of your achievements.

Working with a clear mind will set your spirit free to explore.  Use this  surge of energy to move forward in all aspects of your life. 2017 is a “ONE” year which in numerology means the start of a new phase in our lives. A lot more pregnancies ,birth and engagements will be announced. This is the start of a new cycle for humanity after the completion though the passing of so many souls last year. We will see a lot more people embarking on new journeys some which will surprised everyone around them and others will decide to take time off to go explore. 2016 provided us with an opportunity to truly understand our life purpose and find our “happy”.  2017 will help tap into our heart and intuition to bring forth solutions for our problems. 

The first three months of 2017 will be crucial for intention setting to set the tone for the year. There is also a strong call to put yourself first and look after yourself, from a mental, physical and spiritual way.

2016 help to uncover old belief patterns, self sabotage traits and even childhood conditioning that were holding you back. If you haven’t already dealt with some of this, then 2017 is not going to be easy as you will only be carrying it forward into the new year. It will feel like you are going around in circles and not getting anywhere. You can’t move forward if you mind is stuck in the past. There will be challenges but you will realise how strong and how far you have come, as it will be easier to deal with and get over things compared to the last couple of years.Image result for cords attached spiritual

Seven ways to tap into the energy 2017 will bring us:

  • Be flexible – don’t put restrictions on yourself. Allow yourself to explore and try things out without the fear of failing.
  • Don’t let judgement stop you. There will always be someone judging you, regardless of what you do so why stop yourself from trying?
  • Release control – things get easier when you resist the need to control everything and others.
  • Growth – there is an opportunity to grow, so try new things, whether it is dating, a new course or hobby. Do something different this year.
  • Say yes – to the right things. Say yes to yourself!
  • Believe – some of you will be embarking on new adventures – relationships, living arrangements and even career – be positive as it will be both exciting and scary!
  • Independence – 2017 will see some of us wanting to spend more time on our own, asserting our independence and even wanting to break free from the norm. A very individual and assertive time, embrace it!

Do more of “SCARY” so you have nothing left o be scared about.

New Year blessings to you all. I hope each and everyone of you have a wonderful and happy year.

How to stop listening to everyone else and start listening to YOU

How to stop listening to everyone else and start listening to YOU

How to tap into the intense energies of the Mercury Retrograde, New Moon and Solar Eclipse in August

What is your intuition telling you? If you want to understand what it means and how it will affect you, the best place to seek the answers is within YOU.

Listen to yourself at this powerful time. What are the issues that are cropping up, are people approaching you for answers, ad are you facing things that have annoyingly slipped out of the carpet that you so carefully hid under?

The New Moon encourages us to let go of all habits, patterns and even addictions to food, people and situations. This is the universe’s way of preparing us for the Full Moon energy which empowers us to take action to bring about chance.

Some of these issues will be difficult and sometimes even painful to face but trust me, there will be signals by the universe for good empowering opportunities. The best way to harness this energy is to listen, focus and take action.

If things are difficult, then understand that these are the issues you need to overcome, release and transform in order for you to move forward.

Picture a road. Visualise the issues, difficulties or negativity that you are facing now as mud or even quick sand. Now imagine this mud all over this road. Visualise yourself stuck in the middle of this.

Now think about your options:

  1. Stay where you are 
  2. Find a way out
  3. Blame someone
  4. Blame yourself

There is only ONE positive option and that is to find a way out by CHANGE. If you are stuck in the same old patterns or blame games then you are extending that pain and not moving forward. It is like playing a record again and again, like a broken record. You will go on loop and nothing will be different. I remember saying a while back that at the end of every year, say on the 30th or 31st of December, people will say things like “I hope this year will be different” on Facebook, hoping the New Year will bring change. But “nothing will change of you don’t change YOU”.

We fear change but if we look at change as transformational then we can also accept that it is empowering in some way too. If we see the positive in change then there is nothing to fear and everything to love.

At times these hard to face things like anger, resentment, failures and even health issues but they crop up for us to deal with differently each time. When you face them head on, then the transformation happens.

I sometimes get messages from my followers when I share my Moon Ritual guide, saying they hope something will change in their lives or that a situation will become easier. When I ask how they have dealt with the issue, they have no answers. They are hoping that by following my rituals that everything was going to magically happen.

No. You have to take action. Often the challenges are brought to you for to take action and break away from the norm.

Create your wish list, visualise yourself celebrating and feeling the things you wished for.  Ask for things that are realistic and ask for it in stages. The universe can only make things happen which are possible and things you can take action on.

For example if you want to buy a house, you must take action by viewing it, looking into your finances etc. You can’t magically own a house without doing the paper work or putting a bid in. Once you have made the physical move to “want” the house then the universe will have make it happen. For example help by a source of money you never even know existed appears to help you with the deposit.

Or someone asking for extra income takes action by say applying for a part time or freelance job which appears out of the blue. When your intuition tells you “it feels right”, or “do it” then take ACTION and listen to yourself!

The universe can help you by suggesting, prodding, putting things and people in front of you. But you have to listen, understand and take the opportunities. Pay attention to things you may view on social media and your devices. Remember the powers may be have to fight to get our attention these days compared to the old days when the stars, moon and sun were all they needed to pass on messages.

These days they have to compete with videos of cats, quotes, Humans of New York (which is brilliant by the way) and cooking channels. So when you see something inspiring or when your solar plexus start swirling, then listen to your inner compass.

There is only one person who can bring about change, YOU. There is only one person you need to listen to, YOU.

Exercise

If you want to focus on yourself, then sit quietly with some soft meditation music or just in the silence. Feel your breath – in and out. Breathe in and then hold for 3 counts and then release slowly. Keep doing this until your body feels lighter and relaxed.

Focus on your heart as you do this. Think of your heart and then feel the centre of your heart. Allow thoughts to come but think of them as clouds that float from left to right and then, float away.  

Put your earphones on and listen to my short audio recording which will help you through this exercise.  

As always please do drop me a message if you found this useful and if it resonated with you. If you want to learn more, please do sign up for my next workshop which is view-able on my Events page.

With love,
