Every Day Is ‘Angel’ Day

Posted by on Oct 19, 2017

AngelInsight-horiz-_0019_AngelInsight_Harmony.jpgIf you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you may have noticed that I often call upon individual Archangels on specific days of the week.  One of the many attributes that mystics have asscoiated with the angels is that each of the seven Great Archangels has their own day of the week:

  • Sunday is a good day for taking time to focus on personal power, protection and Divine connection through meditation and prayer with Michael.
  • Monday is the day for sharpening perception and gaining wisdom from Jophiel.
  • Work with Chamuel on Tuesday to bring more tolerance and love into your daily life.
  • Gabriel on Wednesday is about direction, organisation, artistic development and clear communication.
  • Work with the powerful energies of healing, creating sacred spaces and deepening your understanding of what’s ‘true’ with Raphael on Thursday
  • Uriel encourages a sense of peace and service to others on Friday.
  • Saturday is a good time to invoke the angels for transformation, joy and freedom with Zadkiel.

Now, of course, angelic energies permeate the universe and surround us constantly. There’s nothing wrong with calling upon them at any time. But by keeping each day special as part of your regular spiritual practice, you’ll focus your attention on those seven important steps in on your continual spiritual growth and development.

Chakras In Meditation And Healing

Posted by on Oct 13, 2017

chakrasWorking with the seven energy centres of the body, known as the “chakras”, forms part of the practices in the Seven Steps. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel of light” and derives from the highly trained Indian yogis that observed the chakras as spinning vortexes. It is through this energy that our life force flows, stimulating the endocrine system and helping us maintain a healthy, open balance of body, mind, spirit and soul. As a filter of subtle energies from earth and heaven, the chakras also act as conductors, and can help you become more open to receiving and transmitting Angel Light.

Growing Strong Roots
Archangel Gabriel is mainly associated with the throat chakra, the centre of communication and will. However, this angelic force is also closely linked to the root chakra because she “over-lights” our entry to the world at birth and working with her light enables us to become conduits of Divine energy. Our aim is therefore to create a strong, clear communication with the angels while also balancing the root chakra so that we feel safe enough to stand our ground.

This is important because in order to express your highest truth and open the “third eye” to the light, you will need to open the upper chakras. But first you need to strengthen the lower chakras (starting from the root and working upward) or you may feel off balance or floaty. Ways to ground yourself include meditating on the root chakra, walking in nature or feeling the earth beneath your feet.

In Seven Steps Into Angel Light, I offer several exercises connected with the Chakras. I’d like to share this ‘balancing’ exercise with you:

  • Sit comfortably, phone off, eyes closed, back straight.
  • Breathe deeply in and take the breath right down into your lower abdomen. Imagine you are strolling through a sunlit meadow filled with glorious red poppies bobbing cheerfully in the warm breeze.
  • You sit and peel an orange, enjoying the sweet juice as it quenches your thirst, under the gaze of the bright yellow sun above your head.
  • Continue through the meadow towards a clump of deep green trees where the air is cooler and you feel calm and serene.
  • There you find a stream trickling over pebbles which leads you to a lovely pool, turquoise in the twinkling sunlight teasing through the tree tops casting indigo shadows on the mossy banks.
  • Here you find clumps of the sweetest little purple violets, hiding their beauty from the world.
  • Sit for a moment, opening your balanced chakras to the angels, feeling their presence and basking in their light.

Can Angels Help With Money Worries?

Posted by on Aug 4, 2017

monyeworriesPeople often talk about ‘money worries’ when, in fact, what they are missing is a lack of abundance in their lives. There’s a huge difference. Money is a symbol of abundance and prosperity but it’s only a tiny part. As contradictory as it might seem it is only once we adopt an attitude of plenty, and gratitude for it,  that we are able to let go of the fear of having too little in our lives. Interestingly, because money is linked with the sacral chakra (pelvic area where pleasure, deservability, well-being and abundance are anchored in the body) it is also related to feelings of pleasure and sex.  People who have money worries often find they are less able to let go and enjoy other areas of their life too. But once they ‘re-align’ and consider the bigger picture, they realise that money is far less important than they expected. So, rather than requesting financial assistance, try calling on the angels for abundance in all things. You’ll soon find that as your life becomes more complete, your relationships and financial situation will improve, and your money worries will disappear.

CALLING ON ANGELS FOR ABUNDANCE

The energy we are working with here is that of motivation, joy and passion, and so we need to choose a bright orange candle, a piece of cornelian crystal (or tiger’s eye for abundance and prosperity) and call upon your own guardian angel and the angels of the Mother Earth for help with our abundance issues.

(This exercise can be very effective done outdoors, with your crystals in your hands or pocket and lighting the candle on your return.)

Be still and allow yourself to connect with the angelic realms surrounding you by calling upon your guardian angel to stand close, then ask that he/she helps you to do this exercise. In your mind and imagination call out to the Angels of our  Mother Earth and thank them for the magnificent abundance of everything we have in nature. Imagine a feast before your eyes, on a table decorated with multi-coloured fresh flowers. Think of sharing all your favourite foods, laughing with your favourite people, hearing your favourite music, all encircled by benevolent loving angels. Thank the angels for all they provide for you, allowing yourself to feel wonderfully happy, deserving and fulfilled. Imagine dancing round the table dressed in flowing fabrics, with no inhibitions, no restrictions, feeling only total joy and pleasure. This is what the angels desire for you and support you in. Joy is a heavenly gift and all of us are worthy. Ask the angels to help you develop an attitude of being and having enough, knowing that you deserve the life you say you want. Thank them, develop a sense of gratitude for what you already have, and resolve to make this a regular practice.

Archangel Raphael is the angel to connect with for all aspects of the sacral chakra as he is also the angel of water. It’s probably true to say that all of us want to be loved and to give love in a meaningful  fulfilling relationship. In a society of high rates of divorce and separation there are many people ‘out there’ who feel lonely and desperate to find that loving partner.

There are simple spiritual truths that go hand-in-glove with the question of finding that ‘special’ someone. The first is that we can only attract love when we are prepared to open our heart completely to love. This is difficult when we have been badly hurt, and are guarded and closed in case the experience is repeated. The second is that – even though we may not understand why or how it works – our desperation is tangibly held in our aura and we can, if we are not careful, push people away with our neediness to be loved.

So we need  healing first, next  some cleansing of the aura, then thirdly to allow our heart to open to its fullest. The angel to help with all of these three magic tasks is Archangel Raphael.

The best time to do this exercise is early morning. Call Archangel Raphael with the rising sun, to cleanse and to heal any wounds in your heart and aura. To purify your energy with divine unconditional love. As you stand under the shower imagine that the water is cleansing away any negative emotion held in your cells. Then as you dress affirm to yourself as you ask Raphael ‘I am ready to give and receive love without conditions, I attract loving people into my life and am ready to be in a loving fulfilling and mutually rewarding relationship. Raphael I ask you to please bring that person into my life”.

Always remember to finish any exercises, prayers or meditations with trust and gratitude.

Is your Higher Self an Angel?

Posted by on Jul 27, 2017

 

 

I’ve just had the privilege of being one of the first to view and comment on a new website of a dear friend of mine, Geraldine Sherborne, who channels ‘Higher Self’ guidance and messages for people, helping them to find their true purpose. I love Geraldine, and her soul work, and as Essene members over the two decades I look forward to seeing her each year, knowing that when we do meet there is always a strong bond of friendship that goes way beyond this life time. Geraldine has been channelling beautiful messages from the heart of our planet, Gaia, and from Angels, Masters from other worlds, and Archangels for many years. She does this by connecting through meditation to her Higher Self, and receives guidance from the cosmic energies accessible to those who enter the field.

We all have a Higher Self, even those of us who haven’t yet woken up and become conscious of it. It was once explained to me, many years ago, that the soul was split into two aspects but with only one half coming to incarnate on Earth. This is the part of us which, as human beings with a physical body, is heavier in density and has a lower vibrational energy. It contains our personality, our ego, and our emotional and mental bodies. Our Higher Self is in constant contact with Divine energy and Light, and is able to maintain a frequency of high vibrational energy so high that we don’t always – or automatically – connect with it.  That is what we are doing when we learn to tune in to our silence. This is what we are doing when we go within. Perhaps it is what we hear whenever we need guidance and wisdom. Aha,  I hear you ponder, so, could this be what we are really referring to when we think of our ‘guardian angels’? Is this what we are doing when we pray to God, or speak with the angels, and receive answers?

Fair comment. Here’s some food for thought as we explore the concept more deeply …

IF our soul splits at incarnation with the intention of giving guidance throughout our lifetime so that we may indeed fulfil our purpose, then why can’t we all re-connect at will? Well perhaps we can, and do, and perhaps we just don’t realise this is what we are doing in meditation.

And, if indeed we have divided our soul leaving part of us behind in the heavenly realms of Light, could this be the sense of yearning and ‘trying to find our self’, that so many of us feel throughout our lifetime and what psychologists describe as a sense of  separation? For two thousand years we have been taught to believe this sense of lack, or yearning, is due to the ‘Fall of Man’. Possibly. But for those men (perhaps with a blinkered sense of understanding) writing the rules in the beginning of strict religious teachings there needed to be explanations.  What better way to control the masses at that time than to teach them to believe it was because humanity (or Adam and Eve to be precise) had angered their jealous and vengeful Creator. He would, after all,  leave them to fend for themselves until they found their way back to the Light through suffering and repentance. I struggle with that one myself, so the idea of my soul separating with one part remaining behind in the Divine Light to guide me satisfies better.

There is, in essence, great wisdom and understanding in all of us. Many just don’t have the confidence to believe that,  nor do they have the tools to access it. That’s where we often seek guidance from others. sometimes we go to a clairvoyant, sometimes we seek spiritual development so that we can learn how to do it for ourself. If you are feeling a little wise council might serve you I can recommend my lovely friend Geraldine. she doesn’t offer to talk to your angels, but to your Higher Self, yet her definition of Higher Self is:

​”Your Higher Self is the eternal deep part of you that is connected to the higher planes of existence. It is your ever present friend whose guidance is always loving, compassionate and uplifting”. 

I and Geraldine and many others access our Higher Self on a regular basis. I believe it is this  source of wisdom that inspires and guides as a muse for music, creativity, teaching and in my case writing and public speaking. In healers it is the Higher Self which connects to the beneficent Light and soothing balm of the universal Divine healing energies available to all of us when we open our hearts. To believers of different faiths it could be connected with the Holy Spirit, perhaps to a direct connection with God (in fact could it be the Higher Self in connection to Source answering the questions we ask in our prayers for instance ?). Or, yes indeed there are those who might argue that this is the guidance of our Guardian Angels. And actually who’s to say that this is not one and the same?

So many theories spark interest in our origins, our spirituality and our soul – but which ones are true, and whom may we trust? The answer is always to sit quietly and breathe deeply, to relax and ponder your question as you sense the answer coming into mind. From a guardian angel?  or you, …. your Higher Self?

Zadkiel – The Angel of Change

Posted by on Jul 21, 2017

Archangel Zadkiel can help with your addictive behaviours

 

archangel_zadkiel_170Let’s look at how we can work with the power of the angelic realms to help even in really tough life situations. No matter how mundane, the angels are always with us, and there is a way of working spiritually that will help us see our way through. Do not worry about remembering the names of particular angels, and in fact the name is not always essential. Your intention, and open heart, will always connect you to the angels. Remember however, we are inviting angels closer to us to help with taking responsibility for our own lives in an effort to change by calling on them for their divine assistance. We cannot ‘summon’ angels to do the job for us!

Addictive behaviour: Some of the hardest situations are those related to addiction of one type or another. Many become addicted to food and become overweight or to certain foods like chocolate or coffee, alcohol, drugs (including the mis-use of pain relief medicines), or nicotine. Many are addicted to work; even when our hours are finished we take our work home, or cannot leave a project until the early hours. Some people cannot resist being in constant contact with others, permanently glued to mobiles checking for messages when eating or out with friends.  In some cases, it’s not just physical, but we become psychologically addicted to being needed, or we may develop a sense of becoming indispensable.

In all cases help is at hand.

The angel to help with addictions  is Zadkiel, the bearer of an energy called the ‘Violet Flame’, and the angel of transformation, or more precisely transmutation, the process of trurning negative energies into positive ones. By learning to tune in with 100% desire to let go of your addiction Zadkiel will help you every time. The key is wanting to give up your addiction. Of course, in some cases you may also need medical help if the addiction is drugs or medication, or is linked to serious illness.

Calling In The Violet Flame

Light a violet coloured candle, perhaps placing  an amethyst crystal close by, dedicating the time to sit quietly, closing your eyes and relaxing, focus on releasing your addiction. Calling Zadkiel’s name three times: “Zadkiel, Zadkiel, Zadkiel… I ask your help in releasing myself from any negative patterns which tie me to my addiction. I release my addiction to the powerful energy of the Violet Flame and I ask that all negative thoughts of myself and my addiction be melted away and transmuted into positive energy that will enable me to succeed. Thank you.”

Now sit and imagine a beautiful violet light surrounding you and clearing away all negativity associated with your addictive habits, leaving you strong and positive. Repeating this short meditation, morning and evening, will release you from your addictions and empower you to find positive chanels for your energy.
