The New Moon on July 19th: Bold decisions and Balance

The New Moon on July 19th: Bold decisions and Balance

You would have seen the bright, sparkly and powerful moon last night if you looked up at the sky. The light radiating from it was strong, vibrant and crystal clear. I felt a sense of calm and also hope reach me through the air and into my body.

For most of us, the dust is just settling and we are making sense of the aftermath of events that occurred  the last full moon. There is more clarity coming our way and with the male energy that comes with it, the new moon will empower us to be more assertive. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself making bold decisions and walking just a little more taller than normal. The energy of this past year has been building your confidence and now is the time to shine.

Put your best feet forward and make plans. Believe that it will happen and trust yourself to take the appropriate actions to realise it. You will also feel your sacral chakra more active than normal.  Your Sacral chakra is in your lower abdomen, just below your naval. This is your second chakra and an important one as it controls the flow of energy and is essentially your “core”.  Each chakra has its dowsacral-chakran special sound and we are lucky that the pioneers of yoga and meditation in India have made so much information available for us in this generation to tap into. Here is a fantastic free sacral chakra VAM chant meditation. My favourite person DhyaanGuru Dr. Nipun Aggarwal who shares so much freely on the Internet, with the intention of helping people, explains it and chants it perfectly. Please set aside some time this week to sit in meditation.

Meditating to clear and and balance your Sacral Chakra 

Create a sacred space by burning incense, light a candle or if you have one, a Himalayan Salt lamp or tea light. Try to do this when you are alone and can be undisturbed for at least 15 – 30mins. The best way to really feel this mantra is to listen to it on your earphones as you can really connect with vibration of the chant. Place a crystal in your dominant hand. The best crystals to meditate to energise your sacral chakra is  amber, carnelian, citrine or orange calcite but if you don’t have any of those mentioned, just pick one that is orange or golden in colour.  Cleanse it first by smudging it or with some incense. You will be thirsty when you finish the meditation so keep a glass of water next to you. Watch out for subtle messages or signs in your dreams that night. Always keep a notebook next to your bed so you can write it all down when you wake up.

Trust me, this is powerful, amazing and beautiful! If you have sudden urges to empty your bladder then do not fear as your body is cleansing and releasing. Please ensure you drink plenty of water. Lemon water in the mornings is great for the digestive system and for health. Obviously take care if its a symptom of a medical condition and check with your doctor if it continues for more than a week. This chakra is important for your brain’s well being in a way. It helps you with your ideas, starting new projects and also with creative endeavours. It also helps you balance your emotions and encourages healthy relationships with people around you.  sage

So the full moon appears in our skies tomorrow night at 11:57pm. If you can do it, please smudge your house and do your full moon ritual and then meditate. If you want to learn more about how to manifest and my moon rituals then don’t forget to sign up to my workshop in September.

Hope you have enjoyed reading my blog and learning more about tomorrow’s moon. Please feel free to leave me a comment or get in touch if you have feedback or questions.

 

Blue Moon – or should we call it the Truth Moon?

Blue Moon – or should we call it the Truth Moon?

I recently talked about our life purpose and about speaking the truth in my blog post – Life Purpose  It was one of my full blown channeled writing for which I received lots of great feedback and lovely messages by people who resonated with my writing. I am always very touched and humbled when this happens. 

Well we are coming to full circle this weekend, starting with tomorrow’s full moon which is also called the “blue moon”. This is an important but emotional full moon for the sensitive, empath and those with fiery tempers. Things have been cropping up to challenge you lately from people pushing you for answers to finding out the truth a situation, the motives behind certain situations which has been hidden from you. The challenge is not what you are being faced with – it is HOW you deal or face it which will make the difference. Your spiritual lesson this weekend is about options and perspective. Use it to your advantage. You may well surprise yourself and realise how you have changed! 

The Blue Moon isn’t actually blue but WIKI suggests its related to the fact its a rare occurrence of 13 moons a year rather than 12 and perhaps this is where “once in a blue moon” comes from. The spiritual meaning relates to the Throat chakra which influences our communications and the “truth”. This is your time to shine and be brave. Take the bull by the horns and get yourself into gear.  Stop being led and be the one leading. I sense a lot people cutting ties with people and situations which no longer serve their highest good. Some of you may feel like everything is crumbling under your feet but please believe that you are strong, able and finally free to do what you want. Don’t be afraid, be positive and see every challenge as a reason to succeed. 

If it all gets a little too much then go back to basics – take a deep breath, take a walk, listen to music – do whatever you need to do to keep calm.  Take your time, rest, drink plenty of water and ride the tide. You will feel better and have clarity in the next days and weeks. 

This is such a strong time for manifesting and getting your heart’s desire from a dream into a reality so don’t give up! Read my article on Full Moon Rituals to positively harness the energy that is being given to us. 

Tomorrow’s Blue Moon has a stronger significance because it falls on the 21st which totals to 3 which is all about communication and expressing yourself! The number 3 also signifies growth, abundance and a powerful manifesting vibration! What does this mean? personal growth allows us to grow closer to our life purpose. For example if you are in a 9-5 office job but your life purpose is really to start your own business then a catalyst must be found to trigger this “new life”.  It could be being made redundant, your office moving to a different city or even being fired, which sounds horrible but there needs to be a reason for that next step and if you are too comfortable, nothing will happen. The universe instigates events which can be painful, unfair and difficult but it is part of the bigger plan. 

The number 3 guides us to trust our intuition, stop listening to everyone else, instead let your own soul guide you to the next level. Be optimistic that your future is in the hands of the Angels, God, the universe or deities – whatever your believes may be. 

I always get loads of downloads and messages in my dreams close to and during  full moons  which I write down in my dream book the moment  I wake up.  Its great way to keep track of your dreams, take note of messages and see how it relates to your life. 

Use this beautiful energy to manifest abundance. Read my article on Full Moon Rituals  which is my free gift to you. It is a collection of rituals which I use personally and share with my clients and students. There is a lot more to it which you can learn at my workshops but this is a good starting point.

I leave you with lots of love and may the Blue Moon bring you closer to your Soul’s Mission and bring you plenty of abundance and joy.

How to Help Your Children if They see Spirits

Mommy………daddy….there is a man in my room! 

Apart from the disruption in sleep, the words above screamed at you in between sobs can make most parents want to run away and hide probably from both the Spirits as well as their children. First of all, it is tricky to explain to your little ones what they are experiencing if you are not very interested or aware of spirits. It is the same feeling I get when I am asked to calculate big numbers! Part of it is having to explain something you don’t fully understand but also it is incredibly difficult to see your little one feeling so scared about something you can’t see or feel.  Parents have a natural instinct to protect their children and when they can’t, it feels like your hands are tied and it is frustrating.

As someone who suffered tremendously as a child with spiritual experiences and learned to deal with it on my own, I have been thinking of writing this post and a possible e-book for a long time but as usual I get side tracked and never got around it. But Spirit have ways to get me to do things! I had several clients who came to see asking about the very same topic – all having children who see spirits and don’t know what to do to help them, messages from friends and some former clients. So despite having a hundred and one things to do today, I was pulled to the laptop and the words are flowing as we speak. 

First thing you need to understand is that we are all born intuitive and the ability to see spirit. As we grow older and as the mind analyses everything and our thoughts are influenced by our upbringing or our own opinions, some of us “forget” that part of our self.  The second most important point is that spirits mean no harm. It is our fear of them or the unknown that makes us “feel” the negative energy.

The most common visits are from family in Spirit. Grandparents, parents or anyone related to the child will want to visit and if possible, communicate their love. Of course not all of them know how to and children may only be able to see shadows which in the dark looks scary.

It is not uncommon for strangers who may have lived in the house before your family moved in or on the plot of land the house was built on, come for a little look. Put yourself in their position and ask yourself, wouldn’t you do the same? Would you not visit your grandchild after you passed? Or come by to see the house you had the best memories in? The answer is a big YES!  

Children have more spiritual experiences than psychic at the beginning as it takes time for them to fully understand and flex their psychic ability while being able to see or feel Spirit is easier as they have no preconceived notions, prejudice or fear – you can say this is an open door for spiritual experiences. If they are meant to be spiritually connected throughout their lives then this will continue and they will attract mentors and helpers to develop their abilities.

The challenge is their reaction to a Spirit visit. Fear comes naturally as when the lights are out and they see a shadow or a person standing in their bedroom who is not someone they recognise. Children have a natural curiosity and will want to know more – who, why and what. Others will be shaken to the core because they KNOW that they are seeing Spirit or something they can’t fully understand.

Why did I write this? I KNOW how it feels! I learned from my own experiences and want to help the new generation of children to be more comfortable with the Spiritual world. I spent a long time fearing and thinking Spirits were evil and scary. But I know better now and I fully appreciate every moment I spent working with Spirit. 

I had spirits visiting me from a very young age but it was only when I was 10 when I realised that the people I was seeing were actually spirits. It scared me and I wasn’t very comfortable because I couldn’t understand their presence and the feelings that would come with it. For example a cold spot on my arm, goosebumps or sensing their death or hearing a message – it all freaked me out. Of course now a medium, this is all normal and I don’t feel negativity at all when I am near spirit. But as a child it was scary, intrusive and really affected my life in ways I cannot even begin to explain.

For many years I slept with the lights on and in fact always had the light on in hotel rooms or when I was alone in the house, I hated the dark, I had nightmares, disturbed sleep, felt misunderstood, and thought I was a misfit.

My parents tried everything to help me and my dad would often get to sleep really late as he would stay up in case I had a nightmare or an experience whereby I would start screaming in the night. It would take ages for them to calm me down and for me to go back to sleep. My mother would pray for me and sing devotional songs to make me feel better. I remember seeing several mediums and medicine men to help me but nothing helped. I had all sorts of charms and protective things around my bed and in my pillow to help but it just went on for years. I also suffered from sleep paralysis for a long time and I don’t have to tell you how absolutely terrifying an experience it was for me as a child. I mistakenly thought I was being attacked by spirits and that added to my fear.

So what have I learned from my own experiences? And what advise can I give to parents? Here is my essential list on how you can help your children:

  • First of all, it is important to have an open dialogue with your young ones. Try to understand what they are seeing. Write it down in a book with a date and time of when they wake up.
  • Look back at what you have written down later that day. Try to understand what your child experienced that night. For example:  Tim said he saw a tall man wearing a hat, standing next to the wardrobe. He had a cane and was reaching out for Tim.  Now if you look at this information – you have information about a spirit contact – tall man who lived in an era where men wore hats and possibly dressed in a suit. Now think about someone in spirit who matches that description on both  you and your partner’s side of the family. Was Is it a grandfather or great grandfather? Ask family members and maybe have a look at an old photo album. You may well find a photo that links to the Spirit contact. Allow your child to view the photo and explain who this person was, if possible describe their character. Now from Tim’s description it sounds like the spirit contact merely wanted to say hello and was reaching out with affection. Explain to the child that sometimes, when someone passes into the light, they do come back to say hello and to show love.  Take the fear and negativity out of that experience so that all that remains is LOVE and the child is now able to enjoy the experience. 
  • You can also teach your children to speak to the spirit contact. They can also be taught to say something simple like “thank you for visiting but I want to sleep now” so that sets a sort of boundary that Spirit will respect.
  • If your children are a little older and able to write, give them a journal, help them decorate it and call it their “spiritual journal” or whatever you both would like to call it. Guide them to write down their experiences. There may even be messages from spirit but also from their own intuition.
  • Guide them to “humanise” the spirit contact. I know it sounds weird but by teaching them to have a conversation with the Spirit, it almost makes it a more normal experience.  They can ask “what is your name? “who are you” “Do you know my parents? “where do you live? So this allows the fear to take second place.  You will find that they will get more curious and be able to talk about it without any fear.
  • You can clear the energy in their room by smudging the house and areas where they see the spirit contact with white sage. I always have a lighted candle on a clean plate and a shell for my sage to rest on as I walk around the house. You can say “whoever who is visiting, please go to the light. We politely ask you to leave this space”
  • Sensitive children can also feel the pain of the spirit contact’s passing or even their emotions. For example if a grandchild was born after a grandmother has passed, she may feel great sadness at not being alive for the birth and being able to physically hold that child. Spirits sometimes miss their “physical” life and it can seem sad. Some children will feel it more than others. It is up the parents to understand and explain this to the children as they grow older.
  • The most important thing parents can do is to try to understand what their children are going through and not dismiss their experiences as “nonsense” or “rubbish” or worse still blame it on their over active imagination. It is very frustrating for children who can’t express themselves clearly to be told what they are experiencing is not important!
  • The best way to help someone is to understand what the other person is going through. Read up about how mediumship, spiritual experiences and how the different gifts work. There is plenty of free information on the Internet and books you can read.
  • Get support – you can take them to your local spiritual church. They will be able to give both you and your child important insights and recommend useful books and reading material. Almost all Spiritual Churches have a development circle where people can learn the basics, attend every week to expand their knowledge and experience with Spirit. I am not entirely sure if they do work with children but I have seen teenagers attend. This is something to consider if you feel your child has an interest in developing spiritually.
  • Go see an experienced and knowledgeable medium either with your child or on your own to get better insight into how it all works.
  • Don’t doubt your children if they say they see spirits. This is a guarantee that they will suffer from insecurities and feel misunderstood. The most important thing you can do is to LISTEN and acknowledge what they are going through.
  • Just remember that most of the time Spirit people show themselves because they are truly desperate to be acknowledged. They want to reach out and they want to communicate. The more your explain what the child is experiencing, the more they will be comfortable and relaxed. But to do this, you the parent need to be comfortable with THEIR experiences.

Finally as the parent you need to make the effort to take the fear out of the experience and perhaps also be open to learning more about the spirit world. Understand that they come in contact with us to say hello and to reach out. They don’t mean us any harm but then you have to realise that not all spirits are the same. Some can be a little too eager than others which means they aren’t familiar with their communication skills and then to give out the wrong message or be a little clumsy. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or would like me to support your child in their development. 

I love feedback so please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know if this was useful to you.

 

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,

January Full Moon 2016

Have you been outside to look at the drama that has been playing out on our skies this evening? Dark, mysterious and stunning. That is the energy that is around us at the moment. Used correctly, it can manifest our dreams otherwise, it will bring out some dark feelings. The best way to work with this energy is to do your wishlist a little different this time. Instead of putting all the things you think you need……. write down what you want to let go. For example if you are single, you would have put down “I want to meet a man” (some would add, status, health, looks etc) but what you may need to let go is “the fear of being alone”. I know it sounds unrelated but this may be really the real stumbling block to finding the right person and ultimately,to your happiness. We may be making decisions based on these core issues which run continuously in the background without our knowledge.
 
Or if you are hoping for a better financial situation, you are likely to write “I want to win the lottery”. First of all, the lottery is chance so even in psychic readings, a true professional will never predict or provide numbers or combinations. We all know the odds of winning the lottery is terrible so in a away we are asking the universe for something that way well be impossible. But getting back to the wishlist, you could choose to “let go bad financial decisions” which in some if not most cases (talking about myself!) the root of the problem. By letting that go, we are giving ourselves the freedom and telling the universe, we are ready for a better financial situation.
 
Think about what you want/need and let your mind wander to what you need to let go. Don’t over think it….just write down whatever that drops into your mind. You will be surprised. Don’t worry if it doesn’t work the first time and your mind brings up things like how many eggs you have in the fridge etc. Letting go takes time and our body and our mind is trained to resist it.
Pay attention to your dreams, especially the ones where you have a conversation with someone. Keep a notepad next to your bed and keep your eyes closed for a second and let your mind wander back to the dream to “catch” it. Write down everything you remember. Also keep an eye out for numbers.  Such a relevant message for me as I embark on a new but not unfamiliar journey.
 
My guide for the moon rituals is on here. As usual don’t worry if you can’t burn your wishlist or if you can’t do it today. Put your wishlist near a window where the moon rays is likely to wash it with its energy. You can put it inside a clean box and leave it at a safe place. You can also do the ritual one or two days before or after the new/full moon. All this is a GUIDE and not a rule. 
 
My camera is playing up so would love to see your photos of tonight’s moon. Also you know I love feedback so let me know if the exercise above helped.
Lots of love x Angela
