What Are Your Spiritual Intentions for 2016?

Posted by on Jan 1, 2016

Happy New Year!

AngelInsight_New_Beginnings2At this time of year, there is much discussion about ‘New Year Resolutions.’ You may be considering changing a bad habit, or aiming for a new personal goal. Perhaps you wish to make some simple lifestyle changes to improve your health and well-being. Whatever your resolutions for this year, I wish you all the success you deserve in achieving them. But I also suggest that you set some spiritual intentions at the same time. Perhaps consider establishing a regular spiritual practice of meditation or affirmations each week, or strive to learn more about aspects of your faith and beliefs. One lovely way to start the year would be to join a local group. Meditating and praying together helps to keep us focused and grounded, and offers the opportunity to share our experiences and feelings. No local group? Start your own!

I notice also that Mercury is in retrograde at this time, so it’s a perfect time to develop and use your communication skills, perhaps to take a course, or work with others?

It has became clear to me that as long as my deepest intentions are to align my spiritual work and personal life to the highest good, I can release myself from all the ‘ought to, need to and should dos’ and simply allow myself to be.

I call upon God’s grace, and all the angels, to help ALL OF US achieve our goals in 2016, whether they be spiritual, physical or emotional. I ask Archangel Michael for his power of discernment and protection, Gabriel for intuitive guidance, Jophiel for insight and enlightened wisdom, Raphael for the blessing of healing and knowledge, Zadkiel for personal transformation and enjoyment, Archangel Uriel for the energy and strength to continue serving as channels for Peace and Light, and Chamuel for the gift of abundant Love to share.

And so, on the basis of feeling a lot ‘lighter’, by simply allowing, may I now pass on my heartfelt wishes to you for an abundance of love, good health, and laughter as well as all the projects you might be planning for over the coming year. May the angels continue to guide you, may your hopes and wishes be achieved – for the highest good of all – and may your friendships be many and your sorrows be few.

Are you called to start the New Year by developing your own spiritual growth and connection to the angels? Why not consider joining me on one of the Angel Discovery Days around the UK this year? As you may know, I write regularly for Spirit & Destiny, Britain’s best-loved spiritual lifestyle magazine. We have teamed up to offer these introductory workshops at half price – just 55 pounds per person. The theme this year is SEVEN STEPS WITH THE ANGELS.

Events are booked for Dublin at the end of February, followed by Bristol, Stratford Upon Avon, London, Edinburgh and Harrogate. All the details are on the website www.AngelLight.co.uk/discovery

The workshop is suitable for anyone who wishes to explore or develop their spiritual connections. Whether you are new to working with angels or have an established spiritual practice, I’d love to help you grow further. Together we will share practical tools and spiritual practices that will ground us, connect with universal energies, and attune with the angels on our personal journey. Come along and nurture your Body, Heart & Soul at these wonderful spiritual workshops, full of self-discovery, inspiring exercises and guided meditations in a beautiful safe and sacred space.

This year, we’re also introducing an advanced workshop on each Sunday – SHINING YOUR LIGHT. If you have ‘woken up’ to your spiritual nature, then join me for this extra one-day Spiritual Masterclass. You will deepen your spiritual practice, supported within a group of peers, and you will find knowledge, understanding and answers in a safe, warm space, held with love and sensitivity.  Perfect for those who want to experience a full weekend of learn and spiritual growth, or for anyone who has attended previous workshops or courses.

The workshop includes refreshments and some very special gifts for everyone who attends. If you feel called to explore your spiritual impulse, book a place now: www.AngelLight.co.uk/discovery

Whatever path you choose to follow this year, may I wish you all the love and abundant blessings of the Angels for 2016.

Kindness in Words, Thoughts and Giving

Posted by on Jan 28, 2014

AngelInsight_Support2Here we are almost at the end of January. Has it been a strange old month for me, a month of paperwork and planning. With the Capricorn new moon in the new year, we were all encouraged to set goals. Now, I’m reliably informed that in its current phase this unusually cooperative mood supports teamwork, negotiation, compromise, and the formation of helpful alliances. We are being encouraged to use our intuition to find and work with the partners who can help us … and who can, at the same time use our help. In the spirit of kindness and cooperation the relationships and benefits we build now could bring dividends to enjoy well into the future.

For any of you interested in the Chinese New Year you will also know that we are racing towards the year of the Wood Horse. A year of taking the reins and making sure we have made the right decisions, as the energy of this year will take us racing the course… so we had better be clear, and work out which direction is the right one for us!

In all of the forward planning it is sometimes easy to get wrapped up in what ‘we’ want. Being focussed and dynamic is great, but with too much pressure the work load (even an over-whelming desire to serve) can take its toll on our family life, and our health.

One of the greatest human challenges – from my experience – is balance. It can be hard to remember that while we are rushing ahead in our desire to achieve we must also remember to be kind. I once knew a lady who put a little sticker on every envelope she ever sent in the post. So I copied it and pinned it to the back of my cloakroom door. It said :

“Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty” (Anne Herbert) and another inspiring and lovely saying from Taoism: “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” (Lao Tzu)

We sometimes need to be reminded to be kind to those who do not go as fast as we do, kind to those who have different ideas and opinions, and kind to ourselves. We need to nurture our friendships and relationships to others; feed our minds with healthy sustaining and positive thoughts; support our spiritual growth with regular connection with nature and meditative practices; and support our physical body with plenty of rest, good food, and exercise. All this while, in many cases, looking after a home and family and earning a living!

RESERVE YOUR PLACE IN CRETE

A great way to be kind to yourself, and to fulfil just about all the above, is to take a holiday or retreat. I’d like to invite you to combine a holiday and retreat, by joining me in the gorgeous unspoilt West Crete.

Group retreats are always different. Dynamics can change depending on the character and personality of each of the participants, but whether peaceful, challenging, demure or hilarious, each retreat is always another step towards our spiritual goal… and always, without exception, nourishment for the soul.

My 2014 Angels Abroad retreat will be in July and I sense that this will be a powerful experience and a catalyst for great change for all of us. I hope you’ll consider joining me.

New Year, New Moon

Posted by on Jan 1, 2014

AngelInsight_New_Beginnings2As this powerful New Year of 2014 is heralded in by a glorious New Moon (in Capricorn) we are truly blessed by a cosmic announcement of great opportunity for new beginnings and growth. How will you embrace this I wonder? I must admit that I have been reflecting on all the myriads of possibilities for myself today as I walked Daisy, our dog, through the muddy fields and country roads on what might have been one of her longest walks ever!

I was contemplating all the marvelous changes I might possibly make to my work, my life style, my finances, my friendships, how to improve my spiritual life/practice, and so on, and so on. Then the realisation hit me, that this was all ‘head-talk’ as usual. That my eagerness to ‘do the right thing’ was taking over (again) and my strong dynamic fire-sign tendency to rush about ‘doing’ was getting in the way of just ‘being’.

So as I settled into the rhythm of my walking feet and grounding myself, I began ‘feeling’ and allowing myself to sink into my heart to remember the truth of what I need to do/be. To enter into the energy and dynamic of this very auspicious year ahead, all I need is to fill my heart with gratitude and love. I called upon God’s grace, and all the angels to help me. I asked Archangel Michael for his power of discernment and protection, Gabriel for intuitive guidance, Jophiel for insight and enlightened wisdom, Raphael for the blessing of healing and knowledge, Zadkiel for personal transformation and enjoyment, Archangel Uriel for the energy and strength to continue serving as channel for Peace and Light, and Chamuel for the gift of abundant Love to share.

It soon became clear to me that as long as my deepest intentions are to align my spiritual work and personal life to the highest good, I can release myself from all the ‘ought to, need to and should do’s’ and simply allow.

And so, on the basis of feeling a lot ‘Lighter’, by simply allowing, may I now pass on my heartfelt wishes to you for an abundance of love, good health, and laughter as well as all the projects you might be planning for in 2014. May the angels continue to guide you, may your hopes and wishes be achieved – for the highest good of all – and may your friendships be many and your sorrows be few.

Happy New Year!

P.S. Are you called to start the New Year by developing your own spiritual growth and connection to the angels? If so, take a look at the Educating Heart and Soul course by clicking here… a home study programme that will allow you to learn and grow spiritually, deepen your connections with the angelic realms and come to understand the common threads that bind all of humanity. The course is fully certificated and leads towards the Diploma in Spiritual Workshop Facilitation or Spiritual Companions programme.

The course is still available at 2013 prices but we are planning to change the pricing structure soon. All course students past and present are also invited to an online teleseminar next Wednesday 8th January – full details on the website. I also have a limited number of places for those who wish to study the course with additional spiritual coaching from me on a one-to-one basis.
