Spiritual Development Insights

My job gives me access to people’s lives and experiences. People open up about the “paranormal” things that happen or their own spiritual experiences without fear of judgement. Who am I to judge? I get judged all the time as someone who is offering a personal service to bridge the gap between us and the Spirit world. I do get funny looks, snide remarks and the occasional nasty message from the non believers. Sometimes it hurts because it can get very personal and but most of the time, I feel sorry for them, as they are so quick to dismiss something that could bring so much clarity and comfort. But it doesn’t matter as I know who I am and where I stand with the people who love me and the Spirit world who support me in my work. I have been taught by some of the best mediums in the UK and the US as well as those accredited by the Spiritualists’ National Union ( with whom I hope to continue my education in the near future) who are all very tough and rigorous in their teachings. 

So, never feel apprehensive or scared of contacting me to ask questions or spiritual guidance. All my workshops for example are  fantastic places for people struggling with their spirituality to come forward to learn but also to share their experiences, no matter how weird. Part of my mission is to help people feel comforted rather than to “fear” spirit. We have been forced fed myths about spirit and the spirit world for centuries. All based on FEAR and prejudice. The moment you are different and can see or know something others don’t, then you get labelled as witches or charlatans who were sometimes used by the higher powers and then prosecuted. Personally I think people in the olden days who were spiritually aware were extremely vulnerable, had no role models, didn’t know how to use their gifts and ended up being overbearing at times. They would have either been elevated to God like status instantly and once the “power” diminished possibly due to not taking care of themselves or just having self doubt which happens when we are under a huge amount of stress put on by people’s expectation, deemed a charlatan and prosecuted. So we have been conditioned to fear and to be skeptical. I think its a good thing to be skeptical. It may surprise you but I am pretty skeptical. I am not a very “airy fairy”  and like to keep it simple.Children seeing ghosts

As a natural born medium who has gone through training to refine my abilities, I am very much aware of the do’s and don’ts. Once I hear someone say they have been to a reading which was like a “counselling session” for example, I know that is what it was, a counselling session, not a reading! During training, we are taught to be careful not to impose our own opinions or thoughts into the reading. The clarity is given either by spirit themselves or through the person’s soul via the psychic link. It is important for the reader to know when they are working psychic and when their own thoughts are clouding their messages. I remember during a workshop I was teaching when a lady who was in fact a counselor, veered off from a reading into a counselling session. She was really surprised as she had no idea she was tapping into her own thoughts but instead thought she was working psychic with cards. I think being a tad skeptical in my industry is a good thing as it keeps me grounded and also helps me keep a level head. A friend of mine who does sound healing and I were discussing how easy it is to get certificates for things like tarot reading and sound healing. We even found some below £30 which you can do online and get a certificate in less than two weeks!  In all honesty, you can teach yourself tarot or Angel cards.

12671934_1672347756386406_388656568295542139_oThere are two ways to do it – read the books page to page and you can use a system to know what the card indicates – relationships, positive or negative, is  it  major or minor Arcana which gives you a clue about what is happening in their lives etc. There is no huge mystery with cards – its based on the Law of Attraction. Your soul helps to pick the cards for you using the energy infused into them during the shuffle. There is a system which if you master you can read a person’s circumstances to a tee. As I was taught to use it differently,as a psychic tool in my lessons, and because I am lazy, I never really took the time to read too much into the cards. I prefer to work with them psychically and to use Angel cards but put away the manual which comes with it. I say what drops into my minds eye, how I feel about the card, what I see in my third eye. This is a little harder because you really have to trust yourself here as it has to be pure. I am like a child who has been give a bag of candies when the sitter can relate to the messages. It does get interesting when talking to other psychics or medium and they interpret the cards completely different to how I do and vice versa. Also the same card can have different meanings or messages for different people. There is no right or wrong way to do it, as long as the sitter gets the messages they need. 

But the key is you need practice, be face to face with a teacher, spiritual abilities and understand the fundamentals of providing readings to the public. You will make mistakes and a teacher can help you refine your way of working, explain things to you and see where you need help. You don’t get that on an online course! 

Your words can break or shape someone’s life. You must take time to get acquainted with the cards, with your own personal spirituality and know how to use your abilities before you can even venture into making a living from this. This is why you do have people who are very skeptical about people in this industry. My friend was aghast at the very thought that you could be a qualified sound therapist online without the “teacher” even hearing how the student works with element or their energies!  

You MUST work on your own spiritual gifts first,understand what you have, what the difference are so you know what you are doing, get a feel of your spiritual path BEFORE you go off trying to get certified as a card reader, healer or anything which offers you a quick way to be a practitioner. I have seen a number of people who have been fed a lot of nonsense including one who went for a healing session and got convinced to learn Reiki and being rather vulnerable and overwhelmed agreed. She came to be in such a state and took me a while to calm her down and bring her back to normal. I was told by my guides (my guides are not very chatty but they intervened straight away) that the teacher was not very experienced and had opened up a channel in this lady who was clearly not ready for such an experience. It also appears she was undulated with too much “whoo hoo” stuff which she didn’t understand. There are huge repercussions when people are not careful. Lives can be affected and people can get overwhelmed. 

You can get very carried away with everything and lose your focus sometimes. I try to surround myself with people with the same ethos as myself which is wonderful. I instigated a retreat for this weekend with a friend but things came up so I couldn’t go but seeing how it all panned it out has been lovely. Hopefully I will be doing the next one. Lots of healing, workshops, meditation, creativity and bonding in a cottage somewhere beautiful. Let me know if you want to come along to the next one. It will be in the UK and won’t take too long to drive to.

I intended to blog about something else entirely but as usual one of my guides took over and this is about guidance about working spirituality and hopefully it will help someone. The message is to be careful, take your time and do things properly, not just because it is easy! 

Today is the last of the super new moons of the year.  I have shared some insights here: https://www.facebook.com/angelamitchellmedium

Have a lovely weekend!

The Mini Moon

Tomorrow’s moon is the smallest Full Moon of 2016, It is technically completing its phase at 6.24am tomorrow morning but you will see and feel its full effect tonight. Hopefully the skies will be clear for us to view the moon in Scorpio. The focus is on relationships and facing up to things we would rather keep hidden. It is all about standing up for yourself which will be a great teacher because you will be learning about yourself in the process. Your relationship with people around you, be it a love interest or friends and family will be test – for a positive change. Lots of options will pop up. Do you say something now or is it worth it? Keep going or time for change? Don’t rush into things because you think you have to, take a few deep breaths in difficult situations and try to keep calm. This is not a time to be impulsive.

Tonight is a great time to write your wishlist, smudge the house and leave your crystals out to energise in the moonlight.

Please share and let your friends and family know x

Guide to writing your intention/wishlist , energising crystals and smudging for full moons

Feeling the heat?

The lovely ‪#‎Elizabethperu‬ is spot on as usual. I saw a friend post something on her timeline the other day and I was given a few messages but I was experiencing some physical issues due to the ‪#‎metrograde‬ which I was trying to deal with so I was thinking about the message and how to help her. And then Ms Peru popped up on my screen just as I was thinking about it and it was an in your face moment. There is no such thing as a coincidence. I am passed it on to her and it made absolute sense! I was so relieved as I knew the message was spot on. Sometimes the ‪#‎universe‬ does work in mysterious ways and helps us out when we need it , even if it means using technology to push it in front of our face. But why not use technology?

We humans have evolved so much and our habits have moved from real life to online life. In the old days if you wanted to get a message to people, you would talk to people in religious places, open spaces or in small groups. You would get stories passed on through the generations or read books but all this is now more digital. The universe and the ‪#‎spirit‬ world has to adapt to reach us as the people who are moving into the spirit world are more advanced in knowledge and technology so the same approaches they would have used 30-40 years ago has to change. So don’t underestimate the messages you get via online.

The energies now is extremely strong. It can make or break you. As ms Peru states here, we are being pushed to our ‪#‎lifepurpose‬. You will see this through situations where you have a choice of speaking up or keeping quiet. This is life lessons – a time for you to truly see things for what they are, make changes if you feel its the right time to do so or to simply “let go” because its out of your control. It is about “understanding” and seeing things clearly.

The other symptom you may be seeing right now is the physical effects of the ‪#‎Mercurymetrograde‬. I am feeling it over a week or so. I have had pains and aches in different areas in my body and now I am left with a tension headache. Its very intense when it all happens and then disappears. Dreams have been extra lucid, intense and prophetic than usual.

I can’t help feeling really excited thought. I feel its going to be a really busy couple of months for all of us. You will feel like you have been “dropped into it” to sink or swim at times but that is the beauty of feeling your power.

Lots of love to you all and enjoy the sunny day here in ‪#‎maidenhead‬

The Snow Moon – bearer of dreams

The Snow Moon – bearer of dreams

If you like others I have been speaking to, been experiencing vivid dreams, extraordinary conversations during dream time or waking up at odd times in the night between 4am and 5am, then you are feeling the energy of the Snow Moon which will be fully realised tomorrow Feb 22) evening.

While my dreams were perplexing and  intense, I dug a little deeper and found subtle messages in them. Some of them amazed me and others left me a little bemused. I kept waking up at a particular time last week and it hit me this may be a another sign/message or code. I checked Angels numbers relating to the numbers and the message was as clear as mud for my present situation. Never underestimate the power of dreams and the energy of the moon.

In ancient times, the Sun and the Moon highly influenced how man lived, from agriculture, to marriage to even how they lived. Many of the old names of the  Full Moons relates to how life was during that moon phase or  in some astrological terms, how people were affected by the moon at that time. For example tomorrow’s moon was called the Full Snow Moon because the snow fell the heaviest in February. Hunting was also difficult in some parts of the world hence the Native American name – the “hunger moon”.  While the Sun is often worshiped , the full moon has always been dark and mysterious. It is often blamed for natural disasters, dark arts and bad luck.

These days, the full moon is in particular is looked at as an energy source from the universe to manifest our desires and release of negativity. Its almost like a two way beam of pure power than builds up as it reaches earth.

I am actually smiling as I write this as I realised I mentioned the “hunger moon” and I have been on a sort of a diet to change my eating patterns which has essentially left me hungry! I just thought I would add that it as it was funny, for me at least.

If you have a moment tonight before you go to sleep, try to sage the house or if you don’t have sage, light some incense and take it around the house, with a plate or something to catch the ashes to cleanse the house. I always do a little clean around the house and sage, the day before the full moon.

You can read my FREE guide on how to write your wishlist and energising your crystals here. Please do share this email or the link above with friends and family. The more people start doing these sort of simple and easy rituals, the better. I have personally seen so many wonderful things happen for myself and others so I am passionate about getting the word out.  There are social media share buttons below this email.

Some people have been saying how they have been crying, feeling really low, doubting themselves and even feeling a little run down. The energy of this moon smacks us in the face before it lifts us up higher so put your faith in the universe that things will work out. Crying is a great release so just let it out and cleanse energy. Sometimes our energy blocks is about not showing or releasing that emotion. Crying gets that block out and brings more clarity to us afterwards. If you have been trying to get something started but feeling less confident as time goes by, this is the time to be a little reckless and just do it. You need to stand in your own power right now and the universe is pushing you to make that decision.

Hope you have a wonderful week ahead and your dreams manifest into reality,

Reflections on the Moon

Nine years ago today I packed my entire life in Sweden into 15kgs of luggage to board a plane headed to London. I was alone, scared, somewhat naive and to be honest, terrified. I didn’t know anyone,no job and no plans. The first few months were scary, difficult, confusing and there were times where I wanted to go back. But I didn’t give up. Glad I did as 11 months later I met a wonderful man who is my now my husband.

I cannot but help reflect on the last couple of years and I realise that how far I have come, not materially but as a person and in my spirituality.

It thought me that sometimes you have to take the leap and believe that everything will be okay.

Today I am grateful for doing the things that make me happy with the person I love.

When I do my wishlist tonight, alongside the things I would love to have in my life, I will add a list of all things that I am grateful for.

If you have any questions about how to tap into tonight’s powerful energy and preparing for the #newmoon you can check my guide below
