Ascending into the Violet Flame

Posted by on Jul 21, 2016

14-Presence_150We haven’t looked at a specific Archangel in depth for a while, so today, as I’ve just recorded a webinar for my course students, I thought this week I would write something about the transformational energy of Archangel Zadkiel.

At my workshops, and especially where we have more time on retreats, I love to include a guided meditation where we visualise the colours associated with the Magnificent Seven to see which Archangel’s energetic magnetism we resonate with. I tend to believe that there are no coincidences and that everything in life is linked to universal and cosmic Divine energies so much greater than our own. In our astrology, our numerology and even the letters in our chosen name, there are signs relating to our soul purpose, and clues to which of the energetic vibrations of the Chohan (Ascended Master) and Archangels guiding us on our journey. So when we meditate on the colours related to the Archangels, this also connects with our soul at a deep level.

As we know, all light is a reflection of the seven colours of the spectrum, which we see quite clearly when the sunshines through a droplet of water, or a crystal, and of course there are thousands of different shades. (Just like the rainbow we can only actually see seven colours though if we concentrate we can find softer blended shading where the colours meld into one another.) Each of the main seven carries its own vibrational resonance, colour and quality. As we know the Seven Archangels are associated with each of these colour vibrations and in angelic terms they are known as ‘flames’. Theosophists and New Agers have related these light vibrations into what is called the “Seven Rays.” Each of the Archangels is a bearer of one of the flames and permeates the energy of its qualities throughout humanity by using those of us who have an open heart and are willing to serve at a high spiritual level

During our residential week in Crete we call upon the Archangels and ask to be taken, as we sleep, to the appropriate Ashram of the particular Ray each of us resonates with. This is the centre of heightened vibrational energy associated with the qualities of the Archangel, the hosts of angels working at that level, the Elohim (highest angelic Beings of Light often called Seraphim) and the affirmation_comfortAscended Master (Chohan) of the Ray. You would be amazed at the results after a few nights of asking. This works especially well when calling on the transmutational energy of Zadkiel, or indeed Raphael for healing.

Zadkiel works with the Chohan Saint Germaine of the seventh ray and brings all the positive power of the Violet Flame.  This powerful Light source helps us with the transmutation of energy (from negative to positive) and likewise with soul transformation. His is the role of ‘Keeper of the Violet Flame’ and it is this high vibration we can call upon to dissolve painful memories and change negative thoughts and fears into positive life-force energy. If we make the choice to acknowledge that most of us have personalities tinged with some form of negativity towards some other people, such as thoughts or actions related to greed, jealousy or judgementalism, we can also make the choice to let these feelings be transmuted. This in turn helps us eleviate that karmic experience of feeling the same negative actions being made towards ourselves. (What goes around comes around!)

Believe it or not the job or career you have chosen will reflect the calling of your soul, and the Ray or flame associated with your soul vibration. Even if you feel you are in a job you dislike at the moment there will most certainly be lessons or challenges you have drawn to you and a real reason for being where you are. (Even if you can’t work out what they are right now). So for example if you are resonating with the violet colour and the attributes of the seventh ray energy of Zadkiel, whether or not you are working in your ideal profession, you will have an interest in issues of freedom, culture, refinement and diplomacy. Your current situation may be teaching you tolerance, forgiveness and serving others within some kind of discipline. Perhaps you are an ‘Agent of Change’. For that is exactly the energy of this particular powerful angelic being.

Once you feel ready to raise your vibration to the bright true spiritual being you were born to be, you will feel definitely be drawn towards the Zadkiel vibration. He will enfold you in the transformational energy of the Violet Flame and transmute all negative thoughts and actions into joy. The way we perceive things begins to change (slowly at first) and although we might still have our faults we are able to notice them and change. There is a great freedom in letting go of judgement and fear. Those of us who judge others harshly, are usually incredibly hard on ourselves and truthfully that’s not really loving! We are all a work in progress. It does take dedication, self-discipline and focus. But when we call in and work with Zadkiel we learn to let others be who they are, and our relaxed and positive attitude is reflected in how we feel towards ourselves, not just other people, leaving us happier, more loving in nature, and ‘lighter’ in the process.

A Message From The Angels

Posted by on Aug 21, 2015

I sat at my window and invited angel guidance before writing my newsletter – as I often do – it occurred to me that so many of my personal friends are struggling. Some need positive support, others healing, and some are feeling overwhelmed.

These angelic words came to me for sharing:

“This is a very powerful month. This time, August, is more challenging than you normally experience. Not only because it holds the fiery power of the Sun in the sign of Leo, the exalted one – but because it calls to you on a deep soul level. August holds a vibration which most will not understand. The heat of the month raises energy of a different – and inexplicable intensity. Relationships may be tested. Personality – the ego – may be found clashing with personality. Each one mirroring aspects which may have been suppressed.

Now is the time to bring everything out into the open – to be acknowledged, observed, confronted and healed. The powerful cosmic energy of the ‘Lion’s Gateway’ earlier in the month created an opportunity for an enormously powerful influx of energy, which many sensitive souls will find exhausting. WE are all being asked to accept the challenge of becoming who we truly are. Do you accept and love yourself? Do you worry and concern yourself over trivia, allowing comments or actions of others to offend you?

Stop. Rest. Go outside into nature and feel the weather on your skin, talk to the trees, enjoy the abundance of flowers. Allow your mind to be still. Please learn to share the compassion you extend to others with your own dear self – be kind to yourself, be mindful of your energy levels and allow God and the angels to soothe and bathe you in a tide of love.

You will not fail. There is NO failure. Only different pathways. Believe in yourself, trust your inner wisdom and Divine guidance and you will accomplish your goals just as your higher-self intends.”

To help us lighten up in this intense energy, let’s focus on the joy and freedom offered by the Archangel Zadkiel. Here’s a short meditation you might like to try. It’s very effective.

14-Presence_150Sitting comfortably, concentrate on your breathing and close your eyes.
 Focus on your ‘third eye’, the point between your eyebrows, which some believe to be the seat of your soul, and imagine a beautiful violet light. See the light grow into a beautiful violet ball before you, spreading around and through you like a soothing purple mist, and allow all negativity to melt away.

Ask the Archangel Zadkiel to transmute all negative or heavy feelings into positive Light energy as you imagine your body bathed in the purple/violet colour. Talk to your self in a loving calm voice. Remind yourself that you are a positive successful person, that you can do anything you set your mind to, that you love and believe in yourself and trust that you will always be in the right place at the right time to achieve your life purpose.

Repeat to yourself three times ‘I believe in myself, I believe in myself, I believe in myself’.

Now watch the beautiful violet energy as it swirls around you, moving down from your crown through your body to your feet, soothing and affirming your sense of purpose. Then watch as it rises back slowly above your head and blends with the universal energies. Thank yourself and the angels for their assistance in this process and bring yourself back into the present moment fully knowing that you are motivated, positive and successful.

If you need personal support, or spiritual advice, you would be warmly welcomed through a one-to-one session with me by telephone or Skype. Just visit the booking page here:

Angels of Change

Posted by on Dec 12, 2014

It really doesn’t matter how you believe in angels. Whether you see, feel, hear them or simply just know they are there you can call upon them to help you through some of the tough times, as well as work with them in service to others. Working with the energy of angels can be truly life changing!

Let’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. We are not only addicted to food and become overweight or to certain foods like chocolate or coffee, alcohol, drugs (including miss-use of pain relief), or nicotine. Many of us 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.

14-Presence_150The angel to help with addictions is Zadkiel, the bearer of an energy called the ‘Violet Flame’, and 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.)

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 his name three times say: “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.

Angels and Money Worries:
Money is a symbol of abundance and prosperity in our lives. As contradictory as it might seem it is only once we adopt an attitude of plenty that we are able to let go of the fear of having too little in our life. 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). We often find that people who have money worries are less able to let go and enjoy other areas of their life too.

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 need 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, and resolve to make this a regular practice.
