Manifesting Miracles With Music

Last year I gave an angel reading where manifesting goals and desires came up; specifically, how easy it seemed to be for the client's family to score tickets or freebies to see their favourite bands playing. When it came to other "wants," like a business venture taking off, the process was much slower. Why was that?

Why are some things easier to manifest? 

The message that came through was about the bliss we feel when we're at a concert. The experience is not a stepping stone to anything else, you just want to enjoy the moment. It is not a fancy purse or a car that will do X, Y or Z for you. Not that there is anything wrong with wanting a beautiful bag that we genuinely love ;-)


If we want to manifest other things with the same level of ease, we have to connect with the end goal and not the vehicle that may get us there. We can manifest our Heart's desires quicker than the Ego's wants because the Ego wants security and focuses on things that appear to offer security, whereas the Heart will sense joy and taps into it naturally. It should be effortless but often we get in the way.



Allowing vs Forcing Manifestations 

A few months  ago I signed up for a spiritual psychology class. My teacher Camila explained that the Universe responds to how we feel about situations. When we see something and think "oh I like that!" the Universe takes note. The more often we respond with appreciation, the clearer our signal. Every time we respond positively to an idea, we tell the Universe to bring it closer to us. Until poof!!! It comes about in the best possible way.     

I have a work in progress that I would like to share with you (a simple one, but music is magic, and I love listening to my favorite songs). There are two recording artists who for the past 15 or so years have been the soundtrack to my life; Shakira I have seen in concert and the others I have never been able to catch. Whenever they are in town (and it seems like they are always touring), either I am not there, or something is going on, or it sells out, etc etc etc. 

I hear their songs and think "it would be great to see them live!" Then last week, one of my friends from college was visiting from out of town. Her brother is a concert promoter, and apparently, he is going to organize one of their concerts soon!!! Yay!!! It is not a done deal, nor is it anywhere near home, but I can't think of a better place for me to finally go to a concert - and with good friends!!! So voila, it hasn't happened yet, but is showing signs of life. =) 

To recap, the key is to respond with a joyful "I love that!" when we come across anything that we'd like to have in our lives. Whether it is a new purse, a new relationship, a promotion at work, a solid group of friends or even a house on a specific street (this is how I found my flat in Notting Hill years ago...) 


Why Envy Has The Opposite Effect 

If instead, we respond with envy to the world around us, that unhappy and slightly bitter feeling sends mixed signals to the Universe. The Universe isn't a psychologist who thinks "she responds with irritation but deep down, wants it, so I'll give it to her anyway." Instead, the Universe registers envy as an unhappy feeling that arises in response to X, Y or Z. To help us, it pushes the object away from us so that we can be at peace. Not helpful at all is it??? 

There is a great book by Karla McLaren on the language of our emotions {link}. Envy is a tricky one because it shows us what we think we can't have (hence the envious response), whilst repelling the object of our desires. I really believe that the Universe can fulfill all of our needs if we give it time and space to do so, on its terms. The trick is to heal the source of that envy, knowing that we too can shine; eventually feeling joy and appreciation for others. The more we celebrate others, the better off we are. 

Some Musical Inspiration! 

If you've read my book, Chakra Healing & Magick, it looks at healing tools designed to manifest a life of love, joy and power. Whenever I sit down to visualize an intended future I will listen to my favorite songs to feel that joy, asking for This or Something Better for my Highest Good, a manifesting phrase from Camila's class. You can also sing; the intention is for your voice to send that joyful vibe out to the world. 

With this in mind, here's a link to one of my favourite performances by Coldplay; they are awesome but so is the crowd! Watch it and connect with the feeling =)






One Last Healing Tip! 

There are many ways to heal ourselves; Reiki and Energy Healing have worked well for me. I find that the changes we seek come about quicker when we combine energy healing with music. Listen to music that matches the mood that you're feeling  and healing. Don't shy away from the sadder vibes, and when you have sat with those emotions for a while, bring the playlist back to something a little more balanced or upbeat. We can all learn to channel energy healing (see links below!)

The secret manifesting ingredient: live recordings amplify the effect with the audience's energy. If you speak Spanish, this is my go-to song:

What is Holy Fire ® Reiki ?

Hello Chickpeas! 

I want to tell you about a new Reiki class that I took this weekend. First off, when I signed up for Reiki in 2012 there were only three levels: beginners, practitioner and teacher. And if you hadn’t noticed, Reiki is one of the modalities that I enjoy most; I enjoy giving myself Reiki as much as I love teaching it =) 

To make a long story short, when people refer to Reiki they usually mean Usui Reiki - a system of natural healing that was developed in Japan by Mikao Usui about 100 years ago. Legend has it that Usui, a lifelong buddhist, embarked on a meditative retreat on Mount Kuruma in Japan intent on achieving higher degrees of clarity and trust in his life (another word for enlightenment). 

As legend has it, he felt a massive ray of light come down from above. That rush of light entered his body through the top of his head and when he came to again, he decided it was time to leave. Usui was already a healer and over the next days and weeks, he noticed that healings happened spontaneously and with less effort on his part. He shared this with others by teaching a system that is now known as Usui Reiki. Fast forward 100 years, and different styles of Reiki have been taught to thousands around the world. 

How Does One Teach Reiki? 

In order to teach Reiki, Usui and the Reiki Masters who followed him devised a process that is referred to as an attunement. This is a brief healing with which the teacher instills Reiki in the student's energy and body, opening the pathway so that from that moment on, the student can channel Reiki whenever they like. Once you have Reiki, it is yours for life (I LOVE THAT). The past seven years I have used it extensively with myself, with family and with clients, many of whom were cancer patients mid-treatment {link}

In my experience the effects have been soothing and powerful. But I have also wondered how that attunement process came about. Usui received it directly from Source, and since then, everyone who has received Reiki has received it through the filter of the human body (teacher) who shared it with them. Based on my experience with energy healing in general, I have learned that human bodies can only channel a certain amount of energy; the same is true for Reiki Masters. Wouldn't it be cool if we could establish our connection to Reiki without that human filter?

Direct Attunements Are Possible 

In Holy Fire ® Reiki classes, the connection to Reiki is through a guided meditation where the teacher sets the intention, steps back and lets that Holy Fire ® energy come down from above to interact with each of the students individually. This was a Reiki Master class so we had four ignitions (as they're called) over a three day period, each stronger than the last. With the first one I felt lots of irritation as it brought to the surface everything that I had swept under the rug (reiki healing crisis). The second brought a welcome wave of peace and light. And the third a rush of compassion; the subject of my next post as the feeling was pretty much new to me. 

Each of the ignitions was unique. By the time they are over, your energy has been shifted over to a frequency that is more open and loving and also empowered when it comes to healing. Reiki was strong enough as it is, with this direct empowerment it flows a lot quicker than I was used to. That said, I believe Reiki is frequency and we are each guided to the teacher and styles that are suited to help us heal at that point in our lives. The traditional style of Reiki attunements has worked well for me the past seven years =) 

Usui Reiki vs Holy Fire® Reiki

Usui was a Japanese healer and as you would expect, that healing path is largely influenced by Asian religions. In Holy Fire we come across a healing vibration that is closer to what we see in the Bible  (think Moses, the Burning Bush and Healing Miracles). The next level after Holy Fire® is a Master Teacher class in Karuna Reiki® - which takes us back to the compassion of eastern traditions. We went through both this week; Karuna Reiki® gives us quite a few additional tools to work through the shadow side including fears, insecurities and unconscious patterns. Karuna Reiki® is usually studied after we have become Usui (or Holy Fire®) Teachers, bringing the time invested in training to nine full days =)






And Some Aries Fire (In Me)

Two years ago my progressed Sun moved into Aries, astro speak for: I am a lot less patient than I used to be. Traditional Usui Reiki is fantastic and while it worked well for me for years, ever since my Progressed Sun changed signs, I want everything to happen that much faster. I think the Universe answered my prayers for faster healing with this Holy Fire class. And as my intuition kept telling me: No Aries wants to heal slowly hahaha. I kept hearing that phrase to the tune of Ricky Martin and Cristina Aguilera. 

Reiki hugs,


Regina 




Please note that Holy Fire ® Reiki is complementary to medical care, not alternative. The healing referred to in this article is how quickly I have let go of things that used to bother me; the peace that follows is just priceless. That said, Reiki is a wonderful complement to medical care! Please follow this link for more on energy healing and cancer support.

My Jupiter Talisman Is Here! 😍

The last few years I have been studying astrology, specifically a current that looks at the planets and how we can connect with their energy to empower ourselves. At first I wondered what that meant; it's similar to grounding and connecting Mother Earth or Gaia. 

In Energy Healing we use our intention to send healing to people in other parts of the world. When it comes to the planets, we can create similar bridges of energy, bringing the loving energy of Venus down when the time is right for it - or maybe Mercury's quick wit and communications. Each of the planets has a range of associations. 

Distant Healing is covered in my book, Chakra Healing & Magick. The thought of connecting with the planets came to me during a meditation with Archangel Raziel, the angel of astrology. But as it turns out, this type of astrology has been around for hundreds of years! (Details Here)



Next week I am meeting with a group who is interested in a weekly astrological meditation class - in person, in Mexico City - and I was just thinking it would be fun to do something similar online 😍

So far I have just one astrology / energy healing meditation on YouTube, geared towards helping us connect with Scorpio when the Moon transits this powerful, intuitive and transformative sign. The Moon is in Scorpio this weekend, have a look!




But that is not why I am blogging today! A month ago I ordered a gold-plated Jupiter talisman, my birthday pressie to myself. This can be used to connect with the confident and expansive energy of Jupiter in Sagittarius. It finally arrived this morning, yay!!! I have already done my first energy healing meditation. It actually pulsates (the medal).

I have yet to give it an intention but most of Jupiter's themes are right up my alley, as you'll see in this guest post with The Dark Pixie Astrology: Spread Your Wings With Jupiter in Sagittarius

Check it out and connect with the planet of good luck yourself. We have all of 2019 to channel its energy - and no, strictly speaking, we do not need a gold-plated talisman to connect with Jupiter. 

You can do it yourself  =)

Calling on Spirit Guides in Tarot Readings


The Law of Attraction works in funny ways. They say that what we think about or feel very strongly will manifest around us, and this is cool if you are manifesting things you love (if not always straightforward). But there is at least one area where this "law" can trip us up: tarot readings. 

Let's say you go for a tarot reading and you're worried about your job or your marriage. That fear or worry is imprinted in your Aura, and when the cards are shuffled and drawn, instead of drawing the messages that your guides and angels want you to hear, we draw images that appear to confirm those very fears. I think this is one of the reasons why people are often scared of tarot. 

Luckily this can be remedied by following a few simple steps. 


Start By Clearing Yourself

Whenever I sit down with a client, we begin the reading with a short energy healing meditation to help the person ground, clear and shield their energy {link} - toning down any fears that they may have about their lives, relationships and careers. Strong emotions are magnets of sorts, and the last thing we want to do is pull a card that appears to confirm their fear when it is just mirroring it. 

Next, we call on Archangel Michael to place a bubble of protective light around us, before calling on one of the client's spirit guides to join us. We always ask for guides of the highest and most loving vibration for that person. As opposed to angels, guides were once human and their advice is more grounded, practical and earthly than angels. Spirit guides know what it is like to be in relationships, to raise kids, and to think about rent or to negotiate a raise at work. 

Their guidance broadens our perspective, but we are always responsible for our decisions. Rather than ask what to do or what might happen, I like to ask where I am tripping up (for example).

Self-Awareness Triggers 

The other thing that I love about spirit guides, is that having been human, they are well aware of our psychological pitfalls and are quick to call us on our BS. The archangels can be confrontational too, especially Archangel Michael, but guides are as direct as that Sagittarius best friend who says exactly what he sees. 

Once we have cleared ourselves and the tarot cards, we think about the situation that needs healing and visualize a stream of silver light coming down from the heavens, flowing into the cards and adding the magnetism necessary to pull the cards that will illustrate your spirit guide's message in way that we are sure to understand it. 

Before interpreting the cards, I ask the client which one evokes the strongest emotional reaction. This is usually the one that needs attention, and from that card, we can unravel the message.

The Four Elements. 

If you've read my latest book, Chakra Healing & Magick, you will know that the Tarot's Minor Arcana can be divided into four suits of cards: Water, Earth, Air and Fire. Each of these corresponds to a different theme in our lives: personal relationships and emotions, finances and material stability, logic and peace of mind, etc. 

Based on the cards that come up in a reading and specifically on the ones that we are most drawn to, we know where the client's internal blocks, fears and worries lie. This can be addressed with energy healing meditations to work through those issues in the Aura. 

Any deck based on Rider-Waite will work, but for energy healing purposes, the more vivid the images, the better. The ones I have been using in healing sessions are Everyday Witch by Deborah Blake, and The Wizards Tarot by Corrine Kenner. The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner is also great. Clearly, I love the magical associations but the designs themselves are fantastic. 







Want to Know More?

Angel, Tarot and Astrology readings can be booked through my blog HERE and I would love to hear from you. But if you would prefer to learn to work with energy healing, spiritual guides and tarot yourself, check out my Chakra Healing & Magick book. 

The first chapter is available as a free download HERE. It covers the essential steps of learning to ground, clear and shield our personal energy before engaging in any type of energy work.

Clearing Energy With Quartz Wands

I found a lovely quartz massage wand a few weeks ago and I am loving it so far. The thing with crystals is that I always feel like I have more than enough - anything you might need - then a new one makes its way into my life and I couldn't be happier LOL. 

This stone has plenty of clouds and shapes; it almost looks like it has angel wings in there near the point. I absolutely adore quartz crystals because they are fun to meditate with and on some occasions, we can even use them for scrying. 


This particular wand caught my attention for healing sessions. The thought that came to mind was heavy-duty clearing agent. I suspect that the clearing strength comes from its cloudiness. This got me thinking about how a quartz' characteristics can influence how we use it for energy healing or meditation. 

Three years ago I signed up for a quartz point healing workshop with Claudia Lechuga, a brilliant Crystal Master in Mexico City. 

At the time Claudia mentioned that the clearer the quartz, the better for energy healing purposes as its structure will be better suited to channel light into the client’s body and Aura. And she is definitely right. My cloudy quartz wand is no good when it comes to filling the body with light, but I find that it is very good when it comes to removing dense, stuck or negative energy from the chakras. 

When I saw it in the store it felt like an intense clearing crystal and it just so happened that I had a client booked in the next day who was going through an especially tough time. I bought it thinking of her and then used it in our healing session. It helped LOADS. 

How Do We Use The Wand?

If you are an Energy Healer or Reiki practitioner, make sure you clear the crystal and then charge it {link}. With that done, keep it in your pocket during the healing session and bring it out if you come across a Chakra or Aura layer that takes longer than usual to clear. 

We can hold the wand over that area, point facing away from the body and move it in slow circles, or visualize a vacuum cleaner sucking any negative energy out of the person's energy field. 

As a matter of fact, we do this in Energy Healing sessions even without the crystal, calling on Archangel Michael instead. Just visualize your hands holding a vacuum and ask the angels to remove any energy, thoughts or beliefs that are ready to go. 



Note: I find myself pausing to clear the wand along the way, rinsing it by drawing down a liquid light. We can also use the Harmony Symbol in Reiki to clear it on-the-go.  

If you are clearing the Aura, you could hold it in your palm and brush very gently. In school we learned to brush upwards from the shoulders so that stray thoughts are released over the head and not sent through the entire Aura. The rest of the Aura is brushed down from the shoulders. 

When that is done, we fill that space with healing light or Reiki. If you have read Chakra Healing & Magick, you will know that we have seven large chakras in the physical body and that the Aura can be broken down into four levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Make sure to fill each of these with light when you are done clearing it. I use my hands to bring in light - no crystal. 

Webinar Coming Soon! 

I am working on a new Energy Healing webinar! Essentially how to channel healing light and energy through the body and Aura. It will focus on self-healing and leverages the tools learned during a two-year energy healing accreditation at the School of Intuition & Healing in London.

1st Steps in Psychic Awareness

It has been a decade since I moved to London and began exploring angels, astrology and other fun topics at a real life psychic school. For nearly four years I went back for weekly meditations to connect with the archangels, often using the chakras as gateways to access our sixth sense. A lot has been written about these colorful energy centers and they are incredibly important for self-healing purposes, but when it comes to our intuitive awareness, I am fascinated by the Aura. 

The Aura can be seen as a bubble of light around the physical body. It expands when we access our intuition; this is when we can sense the energy around us, including the presence of angels.     



Activating The Aura

We can activate the Aura by visualizing pink light in our Heart Chakra and sending a ray of light down, through our body and legs, to the center of the Earth. Visualize it connecting with a large rose quartz and bring your attention back to your Heart. From this place of love and grounding, we ask for a ray of white or silver light to flow down from the heavens, filling our physical body and Aura with energy. Let your Aura expand as far as feels comfortable, sending any extraneous energy into the ground. Let that white light change colors to violet for shielding. 

Shielding the space ensures that we only connect with the angels and spirit guides that we want to connect with. In school we learned to call on Archangel Michael for help here, asking him to stand guard and act as a spiritual bouncer. With that done, we call on our guardian angel or one of the archangels to appear. This ensures that intuitive meditations are always pleasant experiences. 

Ready To Get Started?

Three years ago I published Chakra Healing & Magick with some of the tools that have worked for me over the years. The first chapter is available as a gift for blog readers: a step-by-step guide to grounding, clearing and shielding your Aura. >>> Download the PDF HERE

The ebook and paperback are on Amazon below:

United States ~ Canada ~ Mexico 
United Kingdom ~ Spain ~ France 

Germany ~ Italy  Australia
India ~ Japan
