Voting Open! Topic for Next Book =)

Hello Chickpeas! 

Three years ago I ran a poll asking readers if they preferred  a book on activating their inner healing and intuition abilities, or a memoir on my student days at Psychic School.

The "Do It Yourself" option won and I published 
Chakra Healing & Magick. Time for a new poll! Thanks in advance for reading the options. 


FYI - I have published two (on Amazon HERE)





Before we start, let me begin by saying that with Options 1 and 2, the focus would be on how I use Reiki and Astrology in my daily life with just the basic 'classical' theory for each of the topics. 


Option 1) A Reiki Book (Title TBC)

Reiki is a tradition that includes three pillars: 1) Energy Healing where we place our hands on specific areas of the body to release stress, relax and facilitate the body's healing process, 2)   A daily meditation practice to cultivate inner peace, and 3) Develop your intuition by drawing Reiki into the mind and body.

Reiki is lovely on its own and I wouldn't write a classical Reiki book because there are dozens of great ones (Penelope Quest's Reiki for Life is fantastic). The idea would be to talk about how I have combined Reiki with crystal magic, astrology, or creative uses like clearing beliefs, manifesting and empowerment - different ways to use it. I use Reiki in so many ways that don't involve self-healing, although of course I give myself Reiki every single day. 

Caveat: Even if you read the book, you'll still need to attend a Reiki class because we need a special one-to-one healing activation to begin channeling Reiki. But it is most definitely worth it =) 


Option 2) Astrology Book (Title TBC)

The past four years I have been digging deep with astrology and using it to heal myself, and in sessions with healing clients. This one still requires research and trials, but I would like to share the 'Healing with Astrology' tools that have helped me immensely:

- What's included in a Natal Chart
- What it says about our personality and beliefs
- How to compensate for our 'flaws' or imbalances.
- Crystals, Bach Flowers and behavioral psychology tips.
- How your Natal Chart overlaps with the Tree of Life.
- How to activate your inner sun and let go of 'pretenses'

- A bit of overlap as I use Reiki symbols here too.  

This book will most likely be a mix of astrology and meditations with Kabbalistic Tree of Life. I still need to think about this as it could be a Kabbalah + Astrology book. If this is the winner the first draft won't be available until sometime in 2020. The other ones I am ready to begin writing now and publish later this year. In the meantime here's a post on Natal Astrology.



Option 3) A Psychic School Memoir

Now that I have been teaching for a few years I find that as well as having the theory (how to activate the chakras, guided meditations, and healing tips), psychic explorers benefit from knowing what it was like to go through the different phases of being a student, from complete beginner to becoming more and more psychic, and then nearly professional (with lots of surprises, fear and doubt along the way). There are lots of healers and teachers who were born psychic but as I was skeptical and hopeless begin with, the opening up process turned out to be a huge adventure. The vast majority of classes were focused on communicating with archangels but I also studied energy healing and how to connect with spirit guides with tarot and clairvoyant meditations. 

There are also all the moments when I had weird, funny or poignant intuitions in my daily life. Like the time that my spirit guides shoved an entire shelf of 'health food' onto the floor at a supermarket to keep me from going home with stir fry dinner.

Read About That HERE =)


Most of that is already on my blog in posts from 2010-2013. This book would compile posts and also add context to the story.


Let Me Know Your Choice!


Thank you for reading and please follow the links to Facebook,  Instagram or comment with your choice (and why). I will consider all of your responses but may prioritize based on readiness =) 

Reiki hugs, 

Regina

Loving Lush Shampoo Bars (No Plastic!)

A few months ago I had a mindful moment in the shower and was surprised, shocked and saddened by how many plastic bottles surrounded me. Shampoos, conditioners etc. 

Not long after someone shared a video about LUSH Shampoo Bars. I went into one of their stores when my shampoo ran out and bought a lavender flavored (smells like candy) shampoo bar.

It has been a few months and so far I love it. Now that my conditioner has run out, I can safely say that plastics will be banned from my shower. Though they are still present in many places... 

If you would like to have fewer plastic containers with your name on them, I encourage you to try it out. It made me feel a little better about myself and the shampoo bar is delicious! 




The other cool thing about these shampoo bars is that we can store them in a tin can, and the sales people at Lush show us how to place them in the shower so that they dry quickly. 

Thank you for reading Diary of a Psychic Healer!

Reiki hugs, 

Regina

Five Books To Get You Started

Hello Chickpeas, 

I can’t believe I have been blogging about energy healing for eight years! Thought it was about time I updated my Recommended Reading List.

Key themes include energy healing, astrology and intuition. These tools were so useful in my student days - happy reading! 💖💖💖



These are the books and tools I have found most useful: 

1) Chakra Healing & Magick: Sneaking this one to the top of the list as it includes all of the energy healing, intuition and angelic tips that I use in my daily life to keep myself afloat and happy. Written by yours truly, some of the themes include chakras, psychic development, angels and crystal empowerment. 

Available on Amazon in the USA / United Kingdom / México  / Australia / Canada




2) Astrology for the Soul: Written by Jan Spiller, this book converted me from skeptic to complete astrology geek. It looks at the Moon's Nodes and how they illustrate behavioral patterns that trip us up and bring unhappiness to our lives. Jan goes through detailed 'reverse psychology' for each Zodiac sign and tells us where our assumptions go wrong and how to fix it. 

Available on Amazon in the USA / United Kingdom / México  / Australia / Canada


3) A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. If I am transparent, I loved this book but couldn't get through more than a few chapters of The Power of Now - his more famous book. The concepts from The Power of Now are summarized in the first chapter (and incredibly useful); the rest of A New Earth is just gorgeous. If I had to choose, I would pin my worldview on this book. It also gives us a mystical or metaphorical interpretation of Christianity that I really like. 

Available on Amazon in the USA / United Kingdom / México  / Australia / Canada



4) The Seven Lies of the Human Race by Maria Veiga. The author takes us through the psychological development stages and how they relate to the seven chakras. Based on our reactions to life, we develop a set of 'lies that we tell ourselves' to be able to cope with hardship and fear. Maria brings us back to a place of honesty by using energy healing and her life as an example. I loved it so much that I asked her to contribute an excerpt to my own book, Chakra Healing & Magick

Available on Amazon in the USA / United Kingdom / México  / Australia / Canada



5) Ask Your Guides by Sonia Choquette. This blog wouldn't exist if I hadn't stumbled across Sonia's lovely book almost ten years ago. It guides us through simple techniques to connect with archangels and spirit guides, as well as explaining the difference between teacher guides, joy guides, lost-object finders and the guidance of your Higher Self. I have read dozens of spiritual books since and it's still a favorite. To be honest though, I was initially scared of spirit guides so I waited 2 months before buying and reading it. So glad I did =) 

Available on Amazon in the USA / United Kingdom / México  / Australia / Canada



And A Bonus Book!

Seeing as it is Christmas next week and many of us are likely to eat tons of food and then get a massive feeling of buyer's remorse in January - I thought I'd include one more title. Doreen Virtue's Constant Craving looks at the emotional state behind ingredients, flavours, consistency (crunchy vs smooth) and what it all means if we lose control with salty crackers as opposed to hot sauce. This book is great for anyone who struggles with food or emotions. 

Thank you for reading Diary of a Psychic Healer!

Archangel Haniel: Intuition, Courage, and Passion

The past month I have been doing Angel Readings and healing sessions at WeWork. One of the big surprises has been how many people book angel readings out of curiosity. It is not that they want guidance; they just want to know what angels are like in person. 

Angel readings have taken a turn and we begin with a guided intuition meditation to clear and protect our space before activating our intuition and calling on the archangels. 

People tend to perceive the angels in different ways. Many feel temperature changes or heaviness in their arms, legs and feet when Archangel Michael comes in. A few have sensed flowers, fragrances or music. The more often we meditate, the clearer the impressions become.  


Archangel Haniel has been coming through in more and more sessions. Her light comes through as pink or red fire depending on the energy that we need in our lives. The softer side involves intuition, emotions and healing, complementing Archangel Raphael's masculine healing energy. 

Haniel's red fire brings courage and passion - a feminine counterpart to Archangel Michael's strength protection. Both are awesome, but Archangel Haniel's fire carries a passionate punch. 

Below you'll find a meditation to connect with Archangel Haniel and channel some of her firepower and passion. If you'd like a personalized reading or healing, those are available here






Please let me know how it feels and if you are able to sense her energy! I am curious about recordings vs live sessions. 

Thank you for reading Diary of a Psychic Healer!

Let's Team Up With The Archangels - Part 2

One of my favorite posts was written after an online exchange with a sceptic who challenged me with this:

'If God and angels exist, why don't they create a huge miracle and find food, shelter and work for everyone?"


That is something I have pondered; my first thought is that maybe God and the angels don't work the way we think they work. Even though many of us can name a few perfectly-timed miracles to give as examples of divine intervention. 


My thoughts on the subject were that:
On a Macro Level: Many problems that we see around us are 100% man made. With these structural problems, it is up to us humans to fix it. This includes poverty, war, crimes, and injustice or inequality. The angels can help with clarity of mind and by fostering cooperation (a miracle in itself, in this political climate).  
On a Micro Level: Our intuition often sends warnings or signals that are meant to avoid us getting intro trouble down the line. So for example, that job offer that sounds fantastic might lead to a restructuring in 4 years. Did your gut instinct tell you not to accept it even though it looked good on paper? Did you trust that feeling? 
Passion and Purpose: This is where it gets interesting as most of us have a  passion project that makes daily life fun. It might be working with animals or art, looking after the planet - or volunteering with children on weekends. It doesn't have to be a charity, however, we might really love to sing, dance and perform. Or to write.

So Let's Team Up With Angels!


There are more than 12 Archangels, beginning with Archangel Michael, the angel of protection, courage and strength. He keeps us safe and fills us with courage so that we act on love and not fear. Michael helps us trust life and take action when we need to, so that we don't fall behind. His Fire keeps us moving, and if like myself, you have little Fire in your natal chart, this is fantastic! 

Archangel Michael is the first one I would reach out to, and we have already had posts on Michael. Then, there archangels who look after our physical and emotional health, archangels who look after people who don't have a voice, after animals and nature, and archangels who help us experience love, forgiveness and joy.






Ready to Meet the Dream Team? 

Nine years ago I began to connect with the archangels by asking Michael, Raphael, Gabriel and Uriel to go running with me when I came home after work. It felt like going for a jog through London (where I lived at the time) surrounded by a football team that was made of pure light. Try it out for yourself, feels amazing!

If you would like to learn more about angels, energy healing and intuition, follow links for my book, Chakra Healing & Magick:

The meditations below will guide you through accessing your intuition and meeting the archangels. Keep an open mind, open heart and subscribe for more on intuition & healing!




Activate Your Intuition with Archangel Gabriel
Gabriel is the Angel of Water



Health & Healing with Archangel Raphael
Raphael is the Angel of Air

Cut Away Fear with Archangel Michael
Hope you enjoy this mile-a-minute meditation =)

Reiki Showers (How To Clear Your Aura)

The past few weeks have been intense - my new healing room, yay! My sister got married, double yay yayyy!!! And finally, as per my last post, we had our water shut off for a week in Mexico City. 


The first days of the shutoff coincided with a long weekend. Many of my neighbours went away and we didn't run out of water. Still it made me think about how precious H20 is and why we need to look after reserves of fresh water. Imagine what your life would be like without daily showers - how icky that would feel. Not to mention the water needed for daily hygiene, drinking, cooking etc. 

As an energy healer, I find that I sometimes take on other people's energy and a nightly shower was my favorite way to release it. Not sensible from a sustainability point of view, but very effective as the Aura can hang onto emotional and mental energy. One of the reasons why I clear myself and my office after each session. 

Why Bother With Aura Cleansing?


The easiest way to understand the Aura is to imagine a bubble of light around your body. It extends an arms length above, below and around you. The Aura expands when we meditate or carry out energy work. It can act like a sponge, soaking in the vibrations of the people that surround us, unless of course, we learn to clear and shield our personal energy on a daily basis. 



The Aura can be divided into four main layers - bubbles within the larger bubble. One of these holds our thoughts, another our feelings and the outermost layer has the spiritual blueprint for our lives, including the information that we find in our astrology charts. In healing school we learned to read the Aura, which is one of the reasons why intuitives, healers or psychics seem to just know. 

In healing sessions I tend to spend as much time clearing the Aura as the chakras or the physical body, and this is what makes people feel relieved, light or carefree when it's done. Visually, we can compare it to brushing away years worth of mental cobwebs! 

The clearing technique mentioned below can be used with Reiki. If you're not trained in Reiki, try the clearing tools in this PDF.


Reiki Showers For Beginners 

One of the things I learned in Reiki class was how to give myself an Aura cleanse using my hands as shower heads (though it doesn't replace an actual shower). Try it for yourself and see how it feels:

Step 1: Intend to give yourself Reiki and hold your hands, palms together, in front of your Heart Chakra. Typically I will hold this pose for 1-2 full minutes letting Reiki flow from my Heart Chakra to my physical heart and through it, to my circulatory system. This sends Reiki to every cell in the physical body, for an instant lift! 

Step 2: Hold both of your arms over your head in the same position that a referee will use to signal a TouchDown in a football game: 


Let Reiki flow for at least thirty seconds, clearing the space over your head in your Aura. After a 15 seconds or so, point your palms inwards so that they reach your head. Feel the Reiki Shower =) 

Step 3: This is my favourite step, put your right hand behind your head, palm facing down - and your left hand behind your tailbone, palm facing upwards. Intend for Reiki to flow down your back, palm to palm, clearing every last inch of space behind your body. 

Step 4: Brush the front of your body with your hands. Be sure to reach your entire torso and both of your arms. I like to take deep breaths during this step, inhaling Reiki and exhaling stress. 

Step 5: Brush your legs, beginning at your hips and moving down to your knees. End with your hands on your knees, intending for Reiki to flow down your calves into the ground. If you are familiar with the Power Symbol (from Reiki 2), visualize it behind you. 

This is a simple way to clear your Aura with Reiki. There are many ways to clear your Aura that do not involve Reiki, just have a look at the first chapter of Chakra Healing & Magick (A Gift HERE). 

Have you tried a different clearing technique? Please share! 
  
Reiki hugs, 

Regina

Do we take water for granted?

There are so many things that we take for granted and for most of us, water is one of them. You open the faucet and out it flows. What would our lives be like if it didn't happen? 

Three million of my neighbours and I are about to find out. I live in Mexico City, in a neighbourhood that mirrors what you would expect to see in the United States or Canada. The main difference are endless traffic lines, obvious cultural variations and sometimes, poorly paved streets.




The city’s water pipes are undergoing maintenance and tomorrow, the districts around me, home to 3 million people, are going to have our water supply cut off completely. The water supply is expected to be back at full capacity within seven days. An entire week. 

We have water tanks that will last two days, so the building sent through a list of suggestions. I am sharing them because they made me think about my daily habits. 

  • Avoid washing clothes and if it is absolutely necessary, make sure that the load is completely full to avoid water waste. 
  • Keep showers as short as possible and use a bucket to capture water and keep that on hand for when water runs out. 
  • Close the tap while brushing teeth (I do this already). 
  • Avoid cooking food that needs lots of water. 
  • Eat on paper plates to avoid washing dishes. 
  • Flush the toilet only when necessary. 
  • Go on vacation if possible (yeah right). 

Millions of people in Mexico do not have easy access to water and the United Nations tells us that more than a billion worldwide are affected by water scarcity. Not having H20 for a week is nothing compared to what those living in poverty stricken (or water scarce) areas face every day. 

It made me think about what my life would be like if we had to ration for water on a daily basis. I would love to know where the big wins are. Keeping showers short and turning off the tap while we brush our teeth are fairly obvious and easy. I never thought of using a bucket, this could be used for hand-washing clothes. We can also buy clothes from brands that use less water in production.  



Cooking with less water involves what we use in the kitchen as well as the water consumed during the production process. If we are grilling meat, we would think about how much water the cows drink, how much water irrigates the cow's food supply, and the amount of water consumed as part of the factory process. They say that one hamburger patty equals 26 showers! (Treehugger.com)


Paper Plates vs Dishwasher ??? 

I have been curious about this for a long time and I don't know what the answer is. What is better for the environment in the long run: to wash dishes or to use paper plates? I suppose it depends on the amount of water and other resources needed to produce paper plates and then to recycle them vs water used in dish washing. 

What else can we do to consume less water on a daily basis? Please leave your ideas in the comment box below! And thank you for reading Diary of a Psychic Healer  =)
