June’s New “Super” Moon in Cancer – A Gift for the Heart

June’s New “Super” Moon in Cancer – A Gift for the Heart

New moons are often spark the beginning of the “letting go” process which culminates during the month’s full moon. Often those pesky things you keep hiding behind your defence shield start rising to the surface whether you like it or not. Sometimes the very emotion or action you keep nicely packaged in the back of your mind falls into the hands of another and you have absolutely no choice but to deal with it. We forget as humans that our experiences often shape the person we are today. It can be from anger issues to being too passive. it could also help you be a happy person who picks yourself up when faced challenges. Every single day creates another page in the chapter of our book. We sometimes have to flip back to the first few chapters to see why we act or react in a certain way in order to change the story further down the book. The new moon falls on the Cancer sign which is a nurturing sign which is very much about the “heart chakra”. So you will be dealing with matters of the heart as well as self worth and self worth issues until the full moon. Combine this now with the “super” aspect of this new moon, which amplifies the “letting go” process, you get a lovely harmonious and loving energy that will help you achieve your heart’s desire. 

So if you have been feeling or even asking yourself, “what is missing in my life” then this is the time to really ask the universe for help. You are being guided to search for the meaning and go on a personal journey of discovery. Have you been feeling there is more to life than this? What is my passion? If you know there is something you need to be doing or pushing for then, listen up! 

This is an opportunity for positive transformation even if it will feel a little transitional at the moment. Some of us feel we have changed inside, like there is a new sense of clarity that is encouraging us to take a step back from our current situation to review our choices now. There is a new door opening for us, a chance to transform and grab life by the balls as they say! The question you need to ask yourself, is are you ready to take the leap?

These last couple of months have seen huge shifts in our thinking and shaking off belief systems that have been ingrained in us. The seeds have already been planted as far back as November or January and reach a crescendo this coming week. Every little thought or step you have taken since then has brought you here.

Things will be clearer in your mind and you will feel the shift. Try to be calm and think clearly. Don’t let your emotions or past track record stop you from taking action. This is a good time to seek healing and meditate as it will help you think better and release old patterns.

This New Moon is about your heart’s desire and life purpose.  If you can’t make my special New “Super” Moon Fire and Ritual Meditation Evening on Saturday then please do follow my Moon Ritual

March’s New Moon brings opportunities and clarity with speed

March’s New Moon brings opportunities and clarity with speed

New Moon New Mindset

Light affects people in a way that nothing else does. It motivates, renews hope, energises the body and brings in growth. This is particularly important if you have been deprived of light, wallowed in the dark, crippled by fear and starved of hope. Imagine a marathon runner who has trained, strained and endured the distance. I bet the first thing they would reach for after water is a good shower. The layers of sweat, dirt and tiredness is washed away and replaced by a cool freshness and clarity of mind.

As the light envelopes us in the some parts of the world, when spring has sprung, the equinox already in the way and the birds are chirping in the trees that are coming back to form, the dark is over for now.

There is renewed vigour, ideas, plans and decisions to make. Some of us have had things in the “Pending” box for too long causing pain, anxiety, fear and being in a sort of a limbo.

Have you seen some rapid change? Yes my dear friends, there will be plenty coming quickly to sweep us off our feet.

  • Decisions – you will find that an external influence will force you to make decisions. This could be related to work or relationships but either way it will be hard at first but trust it is in your best interest in the long run.
  • Ideas – this is a very productive New Moon and energy wise, the answers are in the air literally. You will find yourself asking questions and finding answers in the corner of your mind. We sometimes go through life being very protective of our ideas and worries. I know people in the spiritual business for example can be rather guarded as they want to be the “best” and “perfect” so that people will think they are successful while grappling with issues in the background. Wanting help is not a weakness and it doesn’t tarnish your reputation. I remember speaking to a customer who is now a friend, about running out of steam where Instagram was concerned. “People post all these amazing photos and I don’t think I have anything of interest” I moaned. Little did I know that she was a social media expert! She gave me some practical ideas. I am so glad I opened up to her as it helped me so much. She didn’t think less of me because I was struggling with something.
  • Mindset – there is a strong message about self care, self worth and feeling good about yourself for the NOW. I had this message yesterday as I was feeling low and I did something nice for myself – I treated myself to a manicure with some lovely two toned nail polish. It made me smile and I felt revitalised. Do more for YOU. We go about life thinking there is a magic wand out there that will make everything alright. The solution is very much in YOU. So if you want to manifest and get things to shift in the right direction, then be in the right frame of mind to open the gates. If you don’t feel good then how will you even accept or sniff out opportunities? I know someone who keeps dismissing good ideas and suggestions because they are miserable. There is no way to make them see what they are missing until they figure it out themselves.  Imagine that negative thoughts, anger, limiting believes and focusing on the bad stuff as an obstruction in a vacuum cleaner. It’s going to as far as it can and then start wheezing and possibly burn out until you unblock it. Imagine your aura and your mind as being clogged and blocked. Clear it by being kind to yourself, meditate and focus on the good.
  • Pain – there will be some form of heartbreak for us. People in our lives who have been suffering will be released and taken quickly. Don’t be alarmed but when it does happen please believe that they were being spared. They will be highly sensible people with a strong sense of independence. I am saying this a huge amount of love and care as I know it can scare people when we approach this subject. Obviously not all of us will be affected but there is comfort in knowing that those who are leaving need not suffer anymore.

So in summary, things will move at a good speed, you will be looking at new ways to an existing problem, asking for help or partnering with someone who can help. I feel trust is going to be something you will have deal with. We must learn from the past but it shouldn’t dictate our decisions and believes now.

There will be people from the past re-entering our lives now and forgiveness will be another theme for us. You can only heal a broken heart, life or relationship with forgiveness so you can both move on.

Decisions or situations which has been hanging over you, being taken out of your hands so yes it will be difficult to deal with but it’s for the best. There is a bit of a clearance happening energetically so all these things will come unstuck. Good or bad, it will make way for a change, giving birth to new ideas or even an opportunity to do something different. There will be some good out of this so please trust in the universe.

Prepare for the New Moon which will be at 3.57am UK time on Tuesday night. You can do the following Moon Ritual to take advantage of the energy :

  1. Write down something from your past -that you want to let go of  (e.g heartbreak, not trusting people, anger, grief, feeling cheated, not feeling good enough etc) on a piece of paper.
  2. Write down on another piece of paper – how you want to feel (happy, trusting, calm, strong etc) and on the same paper, write down one thing you really want to manifest NOW ( a new partner, 20 new clients, find a house you like, children, a new job etc) You can be as specific or as vague as you want. Don’t put in things which have variables to it such as lottery wins. 
  3. Get some good quality sage or sage incense/ or Nag Champa, sandalwood or Frankincense and clear the energy in the house before Monday night. For full details on the Moon Ritual you can follow my FREE guide here.
  4. On Monday evening/night, release your first list to the universe by taking it outside and burning it. Say to the Moon (doesn’t matter if it is not visible, she is still there) “I release, I let go…….(what you wrote)” 
  5. You can burn the second list saying “I want to manifest, I would like to have this…… in my life” or alternatively, date it and leave it on your altar or somewhere safe. I do what I am drawn to every other month. 

New Moon blessings to you and your family.

Turn the Tables on Fear

Turn the Tables on Fear

How many times have you talked yourself out of doing something because you were afraid? Have you stopped from applying for a job after looking at the job description saying to yourself “I can’t do this” or decline a date just because of fear?

What is the one thing, apart from the obvious, that sets you apart from a toddler? FEAR. They are pretty much fearless aren’t they? They learn as they are growing up that fire is dangerous, fall off high things will hurt, they shouldn’t make too much noise, and most often than not, they will not get presents at Christmas if they misbehave. We somehow get reprogrammed throughout our lives with negative such as fear which then dents our confidence, self image and worth. Image result for fear

Most of us go about life with tags attached to ourselves which influence every aspect of our personality and actions. Imagine a virus embedded within our software than runs “programme Angela” or “programme Jessy”. Signals are sent out as to reprogrammed actions and reactions. Everything you do, say or feel may be influenced by that one little forgotten code.

Imagine for a moment that software is our brain and the virus is fear.  Now see how it can trigger and influence your feelings, actions and reactions throughout your life.

In a weird way, fear can manifest like a real person for some people. Someone who is constantly judging, watching and influencing you. It can make you feel unsafe, unworthy, incapable and simply afraid.

What works for me? God only knows how hard it is to put yourself out there and I do that constantly. Am I that confident? No at all. I give people the impression I am but I am shy and get very nervous when I have to face an audience. I am slowly letting go of fear and re-programme myself.

What you can do to help yourself:

  • Talk yourself out of fear – when you are about to say no to something that you know could be fun, good for you or change your life – have a conversation aloud with yourself. Ask yourself “why shouldn’t I do this? Or “Why is this a bad thing? And go through the pros and cons with FEAR. If you feel strange about speaking to yourself above, then write it down. This will be a good way for you to focus on why you SHOULD do it rather than the vague “don’t do it” that hovers in the corners of your mind.
  • Say to yourself “so what” when those negative thoughts pop in Create time for yourself – quiet room, soft music, incense and a comfy position. Close your eyes and go back to good memories from your youth or childhood. Think about how you felt – carefree, fearless, able, willing and happy. Think about achievements, how it felt. Go deep into the memory and really feel the moment. Hold that feeling and think about the one thing in your life right now that is bothering you. Now see the memory washing over your dilemma. Sense how it changes everything. Keep doing this daily and I sincerely believe you will see things from a different perspective
  • Our society and conditioning has created an over thinking culture. We analyse things to death and often to our own detriment. Stop yourself from over analysing and just do things without thinking. Obviously you would need to be very careful about certain things.
  • Sometimes its the small things that really affect us the most. It is not that being able to afford the dream house that is making you unhappy. It could be your image or loneliness. Perhaps you have always worn long skirts and hate your grey hair but too afraid to change! You could well be saying “people will laugh at me if I dyed my hair! In the long run, people’s judgement isn’t important if it makes you happy isn’t it?  We all struggle with wanting to meet new people but for various reasons, we find ourselves alone but don’t feel we have anything to offer to others, so step back.  We all have something to offer and we won’t know who is out there unless we try. Such a shame to not try because we are scared. So free yourself and just do it!

Why is it important? 
You know how people say, let go of the old to let in the new? Well this is exactly why. If you want to manifest a happier, comfortable life then you need to let go of fear. The more you let go of negative thoughts and feelings, the higher your vibration. It unblocks your flow and allows you to manifest and bring us closer to our soul purpose. Fear is crippling and fear can stop you from living the life you are meant to be living.

I hope this helps you look at something you are dealing with differently. I struggle with doing videos and I remember saying every time I did one last year “I hate how I sound” but I kept doing it and of course it was scary as I wondered if anyone would listen to it or who was laughing at me!  But these days the words flow I am focusing on what I am saying and the feedback from people who listened to it inspires me to go on. I cannot help feeling proud of myself.

Remember dear friends, for every one person who will judge you — there will be three others who will think you are amazing!  Here is the one I did on Friday –  Listening to Your Intuition

The Spring Equinox started tomorrow so expect some good news, action and clarity. Clear the energy in the house with a little smudging and sprinkle some Himalyan salt around the four corners of the house. 

Love & Light,

March’s Full Moon brings a fresh start for an old problem

The Worm Moon will be fully realised tomorrow afternoon at 2.53pm. This Native American name is such as this is the time when the ground starts getting warmer, and the earthworms encourage the robins and other little birds to appear again, after winter.

Spring equinox being a week away, and Mother Nature in most parts of the world is rebuilding and working furiously to bring it back to life. Mankind should take inspiration from nature. Has nature ever stopped because it had a harsh winter? Has a squirrel given up because its tired of climbing up trees and running around? Animal kingdom are curious, innovative and have great focus. They don’t give up because survival is key. We humans have lost our ability to hunt and survive. We merely exist these days as there is no need to fight, strategise or hunt for our meals. We are instead driven by convenience and choice.Unfortunately this does mean we tend to give up easily, feel entitled and often stubborn.

So if you have been having a “curl up and die” kind of feeling lately, sit and reflect on how you can work through this situation. There is ALWAYS a solution. Allow your inner voice – your guidance flow. Don’t let your ego try to talk you out of things. 

Some of us can fall into thinking that you need to grapple with problems alone or feel ashamed that you are in a particular situation. Please don’t feel that you need to do it alone. You never know who can help. I remember someone posting in a Facebook group about her situation having had to start over again in a council provided flat. She had absolutely nothing with her as she had to leave the home she shared with her ex in an emergency. It took courage for her to swallow her pride and post in a forum with thousands of people. She wrote her post with so much humility and she was embarrassed. She didn’t expect the huge wave of verbal support, encouragement and material help. 

You see people will JUDGE and have an OPINION on practically any aspect of your life but why focus on that? Why fear the inevitable? Put your hope and intentions on the solution not the fear. The key is in love and positive thought not fear. 

So let tomorrow’s full moon illuminate your current situation with clarity. You will find that there will be a need to rebuild. Sometimes the best way around a problem is to tear it down and start again. I have learned during painting that if it starts dragging on the canvas and something is harder than it ought to be, its time to put the paint brush down. I take a step back and look at the overall picture. I remember painting a man who was native american and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get his left cheek right. The colour wouldn’t sit properly, and it seemed like I didn’t know how even though the left cheek was perfect.

I let it sit there on the easel, made a cup of tea and thought about why this particular painting was so challenging. Well then I heard a voice, and a feeling. I realised this was Yellow Bear, my spirit guide who I have never seen before. He said there is no
 recorded image of him but he wanted to show himself to me. I was truly grateful for this moment and with his permission, painted over the image. I think if I kImage may contain: 1 personept trying to repair his cheek and ignored the message he was sending, I would have  ended up slashing the canvas with a knife and thrown it away! 

So step away from your problems and look at it differently. Don’t be afraid to reach out to people for help and don’t fear stop you from starting over. Sometimes the magic happens when we tear everything including our defences away.

 


I am doing a free Angel guidance reading on my Facebook page.Why don’t you go over to my page, follow the instructions and pick a card. I will be writing a full channelled report on each card’s meaning and what I feel the Angels want us to know about our week ahead. PICK YOUR CARD. Please do tag your friends or family who may want some guidance too. Its becoming increasingly difficult to be visible as a page on Facebook due to all the algorithms imposed by Facebook to encourage us to spend a lot more on adverts (which very rarely bring in results) so really helpful to have posts and pages shared.


I will be teaching my Full Moon Manifesting workshop tomorrow. How appropriate as we will be starting about the same time as the full moon! Please do read and share my Moon Ritual FREE Guide.


I love feedback so please do drop me a message if you have any suggestions, ideas or topics you would love me to write on. I want this to be a useful and insightful message for you to receive. 

Don’t forget to join and add your friends to my Free Facebook Group for insights, free readings, Facebook LIVE sessions, meditations etc https://www.facebook.com/groups/berkshirespiritualinsights/ 

With much love and wishing you a lovely week ahead,

Happy Birthday to Pat

Happy Birthday to Pat

My father would have turned 85 today. It feels like as thought it was yesterday when I was in my summer house in Sweden, looking at that full moon casting shadows on the dark water, as I stood there with a G&T. There was a feeling I couldn’t shake within me. Wondering what and why. The moon’s vibrant glow on this quiet night, where the occasional splash of the fish jumping out of the water, causing ripples to form, was mesmerising. 

There was a premonition, a dull ache in my solar plexus and a headache which made me feel something was about to happen. In those days i was defensive of my life in Sweden and oblivious to what was happening back home. I knew my dad was ill but I was trying to build my life abroad and my then marriage was always full of worry so I was torn between duty and my life. The call came while I was say having breakfast in the patio, having managed to have had a cold shower outside in the open. I was still trying to keep warm and had my second cup of coffee in my hands when the phone rang. I didn’t know how to cry. It was an order to come home. This was it. He was extremely ill and in the hospital. 

With my heart in my mouth, I bought my tickets and packed like a zombie. I felt disconnected with myself. I cried throughout the long flight home. All I could think was “what if he dies before I got there? Exhausted, bleary-eyed from all the crying and weak legged, we dropped the bags at my family home and rushed to the hospital. I couldn’t believe it was my father. 

The man who insisted on having all his silk shirts ironed perfectly.shoes shined and hair creams always in place to help him look his best, lay there unshaven, crumpled hair around the pillow and sunken eyes. There was air of lost hopes and dreams about him. I knew his time had come. I felt his pain but also that his soul was already releasing. I sensed that he was going through his memories and taking what serves him best. 

For two days the family disagreed on everything. I knew he would not be coming home but others felt I was being harsh. There were decisions made before I arrived to redecorate the house to accommodate a hospice bed. On the third night, after having been asked to focus on the diy and not at the hospital, I couldn’t sleep as my heart was with my father. 

Right from 1am, I felt his soul. I knew time was running out for him but others felt they needed to be there. I always wish I had fought against this and gone to see him. I remember tossing and turning on the air bed and then I felt my whole body lift up and a huge ball of hysteria flew out and I wailed and wailed. This was a cry like no other, earthy, ancient and powerful. This was beyond crying. I felt an endless surge of sorrow fill me up. This went on for a while and no one knew how to console me. I saw my father, felt his soul and sensed his presence around me. I couldn’t go to him but he came to me.  He told me things about the family, things that have come true now. He made me feel his release.

By the time the phone rang to tell us that his heartbeat and blood pressure had gone extremely low, I was already changing out of my pajamas, pulling on my shoes and grabbing my bag. I rushed out of the house with uncombed hair and unwashed face. I ran to the main road near the house and waved a taxi. I didn’t stop to speak to anyone. Someone came in the taxi with me but I don’t remember. 

I reached his body just as he stopped breathing. His skin was soft and warm. His mouth rounded as he had taken his last breath. The pain in my chest expanded and I went into at trance like state which continued for the rest of the day. I was in a different space with him. 

It has been 12 years today since he passed. My life has changed so drastically. I am now married to my best friend and lover, live in a different country and I do something I truly love – Mediumship. Today my dad works hand in hand with me. I see him in Spirit, I sense him and I hear him when he feels he needs to get a message across. When I was debating about whether or not to go to the Spiritualist College, he literally shouted in my ears “AFC* and in one dream, I saw him at my dining table with lots of leaflets and flyers, one of which was for the college. Interestingly, having never seen a leaflet for the college, I was shocked when I found the exact same leaflet displayed on a table near the cafe.

I can still feel his skin through his shirt, the warmth of his skin and the smell of his hair cream as we hugged for the last night at the airport in 2004. I went over to see him right after I heard he was diagnosed with prostrate cancer. I felt his body tremble and I remember him saying very softly “this might be the last time” I do wish I had said more to him but he was a proud man and i was a scared girl. Facing the truth would mean I may never have gone back to Sweden, but it may also have meant he was really dying. 

Part of my communication with my father after I started working as a medium was forgiveness and understanding. I felt he was proud of what I have achieved and what i will be achieving in the future. Kind of a “I have your back” kind of feeling. I know he does. I see it in so many ways. He also made me understand why he was so angry, pensive and impatient most of the times. He talked about the dark times when he was plucked out of school at the tender age of 8 by the British Army and subsequently made to work for the Japanese army. He was incredibly spiritual and struggled with his Christian upbringing. 

Although I am lucky in some ways that I can still communicate with my father when he wants to, I am still at a disadvantage – I have a constant reminder of his missing physical presence. I can’t help wishing I had more time with him even if I know it doesn’t matter now, I desperately wish he was here with me sometimes, when I am low or missing the babies I lost. What I do miss is his wise words and support. 

I am grateful that my father helped me seek the truth and be true to myself. I am grateful that he is here when I need him in Spirit. 

Happy Birthday Pat! Last night he put a plate of his favourite food in front of my nose so I will be making it tonight and leave a glass of whiskey for him as well. Spirit can’t physically eat but they can absorb the essence of it and the memory.
