Do Crystals Take On a Life Of Their Own?

There is a term in tarot where if you shuffle a deck and a card flies out, you automatically include it in the reading. These cards are referred to as jumpers, and they're eager to be part of the message. It makes me smile when this happens. 

Today I had a jumping  crystal!!!

I was leading a beginners psychic development workshop where new students learned to activate their Chakras and their intuition, before connecting with the Archangels and receiving messages for their classmates. We do this with by applying some of the tools from my Chakra Healing & Magick book, especially the guided meditations. 

One of these students was talking about how she had seen a bright orange flash of light in her mind's eye along with the words Sacral. Coincidentally, the Sacral Chakra is orange, but I didn't mention this at first so as not to predispose them. The message she had received was about food and health... 

I intervened to say that yes, the Sacral Chakra was orange and that through it, we could heal food cravings, making it easier for us to eat healthily. It also stimulates healing of digestive disorders while boosting our appetite for life. 

At that moment, I crossed my legs, and a large Orange Calcite wand came flying out of my pocket, landing on the floor with a LOUD THUD. I had been carrying it around for a few days (it's a new crystal) and I had forgotten about it. My poor students were startled by the noise, but I couldn't help laughing. 

I smiled and picked up the rogue crystal, explaining that Orange Calcite can be used to heal the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, both of which regulate the flow of energy in our digestive system, as well as cravings and inner power...


What a coincidence!  

The funny thing was that I held it in my hands before putting it back in my pocket, and guess what? It was positively shaking; I swear it took on a life of its own. This may have been my coolest classroom experience to date; I can't get over it! =) 

After class, I went to a friend's house for lunch. Her daughter is about seven or eight years old, and we played with the crystals for a while there too. Children are so sensitive and the colors capture their imagination. My friend's daughter kept one to help her learn, which should make her exams easier. Kids respond well to crystal energy and I find that it helps to keep a few peaceful stones around the house.  

So that was my crazy crystal experience! If you'd like to learn to work with crystals, please turn to the crystal chapter in my Chakra Healing & Magick book {here}. You will learn to clear and program them for self-healing and intuition. The book is also available on Amazon in the UK, Canada, Mexico and Australia


This is what an Orange Calcite looks like!

An Experience of Angels in Reiki

A  few years ago when I was still a student Healer at the School of Intuition & Healing, I volunteered to receive healing from one of our teachers during a demonstration in class. As part of our training, we were always taught to ask for permission to touch specific parts of the client's body (usually shoulders and feet), and the teacher included this in the demo. The rest of the session would involve healing and clearing my Aura and Chakras on an energetic level, without any physical touch.  


Moments later, I shocked to feel a hand come down on my stomach. I thought it so odd that she touched me without giving me a warning, that I opened my eyes to see what was happening. To my surprise, her hand was a foot above my stomach - no touch - but I could still feel it on my skin.  Our teacher asked if everything was OK and when explained myself, the class laughed at my confusion LOL 



This week, I had a similar experience with angels! 


A client booked a healing session, and I decided to give him a full Reiki treatment because he was very stressed. Standard Reiki treatments can last 60-90 minutes, and they involve moving through 18 hand positions so that every last cell in the body is directly infused with a bit of Reiki healing. Receiving a full treatment is just wonderful - if at times a bit slow for the Reiki practitioner as there is so much to cover. 



For the most part, I have been working intuitively, beginning the sessions with my hands on the client's shoulders where I can connect with their energy to get a sense of what they need, before moving from one place to the next based on my intuitive guidance. I hadn't followed the A,B,C's since I finished my Reiki Master training four years ago. For some reason, I felt this client would benefit from the full treatment.


The angels had a different plan... 

I began at the shoulders as usual then moved to the back of his head, placing my hands over the Crown Chakra (Hand Position #1). My angels insisted that I go to the feet instead and ground him - grounding helps us release stress and often that will be my second port of call, during a healing session. They gave me the message by drawing my attention to his feet, they sent whispers, everything they could but I planted myself firmly where I was instead.

Often I will stand on one side of the client's Aura during a session and ask the angels and guides that I work with to help me create a circle at the other end. I didn't ask them to stand at his feet but felt like they were there. This helps us create a lovely space healing space - if you happen to be working with another healer you can do it physically too. 

After 45 minutes I had gone through all of the hand positions - top to bottom - grounding the client bit by bit. I ended the session with 15 minutes of pure grounding before going back to his shoulders to shield his energy field. 

Did the client notice????

When the session was done, I asked how he felt. He mentioned that at one point he felt my hands on his ankles, quite strongly, but that he opened his eyes and saw me standing behind his head. What had happened there???? 

I asked him when this happened - just as the session was starting. I couldn't keep myself from laughing and explained that often during a session I will stand on one side of the body, with Archangel Raphael at the other end. This time it wasn't a coordinated effort. However, the angels went to his feet because I was insistent on following the Reiki hand positions one by one. It always makes me smile when something like this happens because often, I have the feeling that I would need to be in two places at the same time and that just is not possible. 

Please share your thoughts below! =) 

Let me know if you have had a similar experience - I believe it may be quite common. It is also a nice way to validate that angels and guides do exist. The experience had more significance for me given my reluctance to move to the feet from the beginning.

Upate! New Edition of Self-Healing, Cancer & Love!


The second edition of A Personal Guide to Self-Healing, Cancer & Love is now available with new information on emotional risk factors for cancer. Those of you who purchased the first Kindle version can update it manually HERE. The revisions are small but significant, please read the book with an open mind and an open heart.


Why Republish It Now? 

I first published this book in 2013 shortly after graduating from the School of Intuition & Healing in London. At the time I was really keen to share energy healing with cancer patients and I had just signed up to volunteer at a local support center.

Since then, I have done work with both patients and support staff in different capacities. The subject of emotional risk factors is always hard to raise because quite frankly, cancer patients have enough on their plates already. I wound up shying away from the topic and thinking about what would be helpful at a time when the patient is likely to feel overwhelmed, without ignoring their emotional health either.   

This new edition touches on this, and other subjects: 

  • Responsibility vs Culpability. Let's begin with the toughest question: If mismanaged or negative emotions are risk factors for various types of cancer, does this mean that the patient somehow contributed to his current state of health? This is a tricky question, on so many levels. If we compare a variety of risk factors, the potential link between anger or grief and a specific cancer diagnosis is less clear (and less evidenced) than the link with obesity, smoking or sun exposure. We shouldn't play the blame game in either case, but there is a difference between culpability and responsibility. Responsibility empowers us with knowledge that can help us live healthier lives in the future. 

  • What Does Healing Theory Say? Intuitive Healers are taught to ask difficult events leading up to a diagnosis, operating on the assumption that  cancer often follows a big upset in the patient's life. In these cases, one would send healing to the memory or emotion in the patients body and Aura. We can use self-healing, Reiki and other tools to release emotional baggage. This approach is always complementary to medical care, and because energy healing and meditation also us relax, they can be useful for the whole family. 

  • What Does The Science Say? A recent meta-analysis (basically, a whopper of a clinical study) by Peking Union Medical College appears to have found a link between striking life events and primary breast cancer in women. These striking life events were defined to include situations that anyone would struggle with, for example the death of a child or spouse, divorce, or forced relocation. While the researchers do indicate the need for further studies to understand the connection between acute stress, grief and cancer, they also conclude that "women with striking life events were at 1.5-fold higher risk of developing cancer than women without." 

I believe these findings put emotional healing techniques in the cancer prevention sphere. Of course, we can also use these tools as a complement to medical care, as discussed in the second half of A Personal Guide to Self-Healing, Cancer & Love

These are some of the issues raised in the second edition, building on the themes that were included four years ago, namely  how there are a range of risk factors that we can influence - diet, weight, smoking, alcohol and even genetics - and how energy healing, meditation and other relaxation techniques are much needed to help the whole family cope. If you haven't read it, please follow the links below for details.

Using Quartz Spheres To Amplify Our Intentions

I remember wanting a crystal ball six or seven years ago but not knowing how to use it, or even if it would work, whatever that means. I was clueless but nevertheless intrigued by these spheres that sparkled in the sunlight. 

In movies, we see gipsies with quartz balls while they do tarot readings, and they are meant to amplify our intuition, whether we use them for scrying  (scrying is when we gaze into a crystal ball, a mirror or a bowl of water and begin to see images) or just let them sit on the shelf. 

Every now and then I sit down to meditate with my quartz sphere and while it is pretty cool because your intuition is enhanced, this isn't how I usually use it. Quartz spheres are my go-to crystals for intention setting.  Often I will set one on my nightstand in front of an image, a picture that reminds me of something that I want to create, attract or better yet, amplify. 

Why A Crystal Ball? 

The idea is for the quartz crystal to amplify that quality in my life, whatever it is. For example, right now I have a nature scene on the table behind my quartz sphere, it reminds me of peace, stability and healing. We can work with clear quartz in this way because its molecular structures amplifies whatever intention or energy we program it with, and spheres radiate that energy in all directions. We can also give a specific intention more power by lighting a candle and meditating on the image whilst holding the sphere in your hands and filling it with light or Reiki. 

What A Feeling!

The key is to focus on the feeling behind the visualisation - and to ask the universe to bring that feeling into your physical reality (while also asking your intuition to guide you in taking the right steps to make it happen). This is actually quite easy when we learn to ask for our Heart's Desires and not the Ego's. 

Last year I gave a reading where Manifesting kept coming up; specifically, how easy it had been for the client's family to score last minute tickets and freebies to see some of their favorite bands. When it came to other "wants" like a business venture, or a new car, the process was slower. The message that day was about the bliss we feel when we are at a concert and how it is not a stepping stone to anything else - you just want to enjoy the moment. If we want to manifest other qualities with that same level ease in our lives, we have to connect with the end goal (or the end feeling) and not an item that we think will fill that gap.  

We manifest our Heart's desires quicker than the Ego's because the Ego wants security and mistakenly focuses on things that appear to give security, whereas the Heart senses abundance and taps into it effortlessly. I also believe we receive answers to our prayers through the Heart Chakra. This is why gratitude makes such a big difference, and why envy tends to diminish our experience of abundance ... 


Inspiration from Flashdance!




The Manifesting Meditation...


If your crystal is new, you will need to clear it first - although I would recommend clearing and charging it anyway to focus all its energy on this new intention. 


- Begin by grounding yourself, you can do this by visualising tree roots growing out of the bottoms of your feet into the earth.  Surround yourself with diving light, and then use all of your Heart and Soul to focus on something that you would like to create in your life. To do this effectively you have to focus on the feeling that you would experience in a given situation, instead of the thing that you want to ask for. 

- Hold the quartz sphere in your hand, and visualise a stream of clear light flowing down from above, into your Crown Chakra, down through your Brow, Throat and all the way down to your Heart. Feel your intention in your Heart, and as it begins to overflow that energy and those visuals travel down your arms to your hands into the crystal ball, where it is amplified so that the feeling fills all your cells. 

- Visualise that clear light coming down from above, and see it changing color to a green, pink or gold. It takes shape inside the crystal and comes to life in your mind's eye. Put the crystal ball back on the shelf and intend for it to continue radiating that energy out, in alignment with the highest good. When that situation comes to pass, you can thank the crystal, clear it and fill it with light again - following the steps in this Crystal Care post. 


It is also worth mentioning that our fears and beliefs can block certain things from coming to fruition, and this is where self-healing comes into play. There are different ways to go about it. Byron Katie's The Work has proved to be really useful for me. If you have my Chakra Healing & Magick book, I would also suggest looking at the section on Affirmations in Chapter 3, as it approaches the verbal and emotional sides to stating our intention and putting our energy into it. 

Identifying Your Heart's Desires...

Below you will find a meditation to connect with your Inner Child! You can use this clairvoyant meditation to ask you inner self what would make you truly happy. I would suggest keeping a pen and paper nearby so you can jot down ideas afterwards. Write anything that comes to you - some of us have an easier time accessing our intuition when we write, so don't hold back and let the messages flow! I recorded this while filming my clear quartz sphere, enjoy! =) 





If you have crystals of your own that you'd like to work with, be sure to clear and charge them before connecting with them in this way, especially if there weren't cleared when you acquired them. Read this post on Crystal Care 101, or turn to Chapter 7 in my Chakra Healing & Magick book for more on crystal magick. I also have an online Crystal Magick Class coming up this May - subscribe HERE for details!

What Can Tarot Cards Tell Us?


Last week I was so excited to learn that Amazon had launched in Mexico - we can now order books without having to pay ridiculous shipment fees. To celebrate, I bought myself a new tarot deck! 


The deck is adorable: The Everyday Witch by Deborah Blake. The pictures make you feel like you're in a storybook. Below you'll see a few images of cards, the artwork is stunning and the book is fabulous too. 

I tend to read tarot intuitively, viewing the images as if they were scenes in a children's book with images  and no words. This lets you intuition speak when you connect with the characters and how they feel. This particular deck makes this approach easy, and we can also turn to the book for help if we need clues. 


What Can Tarot Cards Tell Us?

There are several ways to work with tarot cards. I always begin by clearing a new deck with white light and intending for it to connect with my Higher Self. 

Before beginning a reading, I always ground myself, call on my angels and spirit guides and surround myself with violet light to enhance my intuition. 

With that done, we can try: 

Asking For Guidance: We can think about a situation and ask for guidance, intending for the tarot cards to tell us about our present circumstances and any considerations that we may not be aware of. This helps us make intuitive decisions, though its always good to check with your Heart and see how it feels. We bear with the consequences of our choices; the cards help, but our own instincts take the lead. 
Divination: Essentially, here we ask about the future. I personally have not done this as often because I believe our decisions influence the future, but if we have specific questions such as "when can I expect a job interview" it helps. In these cases, I always ask how we can best navigate the situation. 
Creating Your Future: If we are familiar with the cards and what they represent, we can also use them as vision boards, intending for the scenes to unfold as laid out on the cards. Always specify that you want 'this or something better' because the universe is crazy creative =) 




We can combine this with the manifestation tools in the 7th & 8th chapters of my Chakra Healing & Magick book! Try it for yourself, and tell us how it goes!

Homeopathic Reiki Remedies for Beginners


A few years ago I completed my Reiki Master training, which is a fancy way of saying that I'm now qualified to teach Reiki. Our teacher gave us lots of printed information with practical applications and last month I went back to look at my notes. 

I found a section on homeopathy!


I had forgotten about this, but our Reiki teacher provided two different techniques that we can use to charge water with Reiki and use it for self-healing... 

The first involves visualising what we want to create - health, peace of mind, the absence of a headache, etc - while holding a bottle of water in our hands and infusing that water with Reiki. This hasn't worked well for me, I barely notice an effect.  

The Law of Similars


The second option was to use the so-called "Law of Similars" from homeopathy, assuming that like repels like. Instead of focusing on what we want to create (wellness), we use Reiki to fill that water with the energetic imprint of the symptom. 

So far, this technique has worked wonders for me. I have been using it primarily for PMS and I am very happy with the results! Last week I published an article with OM Times Magazine on how to create your own homeopathic remedy {Read It Here!}


If you would like to try this but you haven't been attuned to Reiki, the healing techniques in my Chakra Healing & Magick book will also work. Just turn to Chapter 5, Exercise 3 and once you've grounded, attuned and protected yourself, follow the steps in my OM Times Article. Please comment below if you have any questions. 


A reminder! Reiki and Homeopathy are complementary to medical care, not alternative. Please call your doctor if you have concerns about your health.
