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 ten years since I moved to London and began exploring angels, intuition and other fun topics at a real life psychic school. For nearly four years I went back for weekly meditations, many involving the chakras as gateways to access our sixth sense and connect with the archangels. 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 body. In resting mode it is an arms length above, below and around us. The Aura expands when we access our intuition expands and we can sense the energy around us through its sensors, including the presence of angels. But first, we need to shield our space. 



Activating The Aura

The easiest way to access our intuition is through the Aura and the Chakras - but before we begin to flex our intuitive muscles, it is essential to clear and shield our personal energy as well as the space where we meditate. Clearing the Aura removes any thoughts, worries, beliefs and fears that can cloud our judgement (or our intuition) - it is great for stress relief too! 

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 healing tools that have worked for me over the years. The first chapter is available as a gift; it includes a step-by-step guide to grounding, clearing and shielding your energy. >>> Download the PDF HERE

The guided meditations my YouTube Channel are meant to guide us through the process of activating our intuition and connecting with the different archangels. When we are starting out, Archangel Gabriel is good one to call on as he helps us connect with our Heart and listen to our emotions. I will be adding new ones every two weeks - please join me on this adventure!

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 own healing and psychic 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 books (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 broad pillars. First we have hands-on-healing, placing your palms on specific areas to release stress, relax and facilitate the physical body's natural healing process. The second pillar is my favorite, daily meditations empowered with Reiki energy. And finally we can use Reiki to awaken our intuition through the physical body and chakras.  

It 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

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!

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
