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!

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 the 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 think of a few perfectly-timed miracles or strokes of luck to give as examples of divine intervention. 


My thoughts on the subject were that:
On a Macro Level: Many problems that we see are 100% man made. With regards to 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? And did you trust that feeling? 

Passion and Purpose: This is where it gets interesting as many of us have a  passion project that makes our daily lives 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.






There are more than a dozen archangels! 

My go-to guys are the four archangels you'll meet below =) 


When we ask for help, it is not uncommon for three or four archangels to show up to assist us. We can choose the ones that we want to get to know, based on our interests - one of the main themes explored in my book, Chakra Healing & Magick .

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. It feels pretty cool, try it for yourself! 


Enjoy the Angelic Dream Team! =)

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 an oval of light around your body. In resting mode 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 

ps ... For a quick update! I'm doing Angel and Tarot readings again via Skype and Email - details on this link. Thank you!

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! Thanks =)

Shadow Astrology: Can We Rewrite The Stars?

Three years ago I went back to London for a summer and signed up for class at The College of Psychic Studies. The main reason for the trip was a two-month long Advanced Angel Intuition course, which served as teacher training. To make the most of the trip, I signed up for half a dozen classes at the College including Psychic Astrology with Demian Allan, who uses a "building-blocks" approach to teaching astrology. That was when it started to click for me. 

One of the distinctive things about Demian's class is how he has students walk on a wheel of the Zodiac, feeling its energy. It sounds crazy, but if we activate our intuition we can see what Leo, Aquarius or Aries feel like. This helps put astrology transits into perspective because we feel the energy and know it's not mental. 

We also see how character traits that annoy us are often part of our own shadow. The clashes we have with others have little to do with their personalities, and everything to do with our natal placements.  


Astrology Tip! 

I also discovered a gem of a book called The Joy of the Zodiac by Amanda Starr. It is pocket-sized and describes each of the signs and planets in just enough detail for beginners to understand.  





Can We Rewrite The Stars? 

Later that summer, I signed up for Demian's Astrology & Magic workshop where he taught us how to download the energy of the signs and planets with guided meditations. Since then I have gone deeper with astrology, including the planets and signs in healing sessions, and using the natal chart as a roadmap for healing. 

Natal Astrology helped me focus my energy healing sessions in ways that I can't even describe. The past year I have been sharing some of my experiences on a site called The Dark Pixie Astrology. 

Please click on the titles to read the posts: 

1) Healing The Shadow With Crystal Therapy. Natal astrology taught me that “my shadow is someone else’s light” and that the things I dislike about myself can become strengths. But only if I learn to accept myself for who I am, integrating the shadow.

2) Chakras, Energy Healing & Planetary Magic We can integrate our shadow by downloading planetary energies (see meditation below), but first, ground yourself by activating the Earth Star Chakra, and observe your Soular Chakra. This gives us the energetic foundation to be able to channel the Zodiac.  

3) A Do-It-Yourself Astrological Pharmacy There will be times when astrological transits have us feeling flustered. I have been seeing it a lot the past year in energy healing sessions, especially with clients who are feeling Pluto's transit through Capricorn. In this blog post, we look at crystals and flower remedies to help us balance that energy, though grounding yourself is essential too. 


4) Heal Your Heart With The Moon. This is a personal favorite as we meet the archangels that correspond to the Elements: Michael for Fire, Gabriel for Water, Uriel for Earth and Raphael for Air. The focus is on healing the Heart so that we can open up to receive. In clairvoyant meditations, I picture a healed Heart as pure gold.




Harnessing The Zodiac's Energy

We can also use energy healing meditations to download qualities that we'd like to have. The timing is very important, you can learn how to choose the right time for your meditations in this class

Below you'll find a meditation that helps us download the intuitive, transformative and powerful qualities of Scorpio; using the Moon, Mercury or Jupiter as the point of connection. The best time to do this meditation is at dawn on the day that corresponds to the planet that we're connecting with. In this case, Wednesday for Mercury or Thursday for Jupiter. This timing applies as long as the planet is in Scorpio; both are in Scorpio the rest of the month! We can repeat the meditation once a week this October to activate our intuition. 





I have two articles coming out soon with The Dark Pixie Astrology. The first is on boosting your intuition with Scorpio energy, explaining this meditation in depth (Read it HERE). The second is on the upcoming Jupiter transit through Sagittarius and how to make the most of this lucky year (HERE). Jupiter enters Sagg in early November, staying in the fiery sign until December 2019.

Making Connections In Distant Readings

I have three exciting announcements this week and I don't know where to start. This is my 500th blog post! That in itself would or could be the most exciting, but the second development is that just yesterday, I signed the lease on my very first healing room / office! 

The past few years I have been renting rooms by the hour which works up to a certain point, but recently I struggled to accommodate requests because of logistics. Scheduling appointments can be chaotic in a city of 20 million people, especially if you have to plan around different locations. 

So five years ago I left my job to become an Energy Healer, and now I’m going back to a 'corporate' environment at WeWork, still a Healer! Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know how wonderful it feels =) I am nervous and very excited. Send me good vibes for an awesome beginning!

3rd: Online Tarot Readings Are Back!

So the next news is that I am giving Skype readings again. People often ask about distance readings and how we are able to connect with the person who is asking questions. When I attended my first psychic development workshop at The College of Psychic Studies in 2010, the tutor guided us through a meditation to establish rapport. I still follow it before beginning a reading:   

  • Sit in front of the person receiving the reading and ground yourself by visualizing tree roots growing out of the bottoms of your feet, into the ground. This stabilizes our energy field. 
  • Visualize white light pouring down from above, clearing the space around you and surrounding you with healing energy. 
  • Ask your angels to place a bubble of light around both of you, isolating your sensations from the room to avoid confusion. 
  • See and feel a beam of light between your Heart Chakras. (Always remember to dissolve the beam when finished).  
  • Ground, close and shield yourself when done.

In Skype readings we begin with this. Then I ask the sitter to close her eyes and picture a color while I shuffle the cards - this helps me tune into her energy. When the cards are shuffled, I divide them in three stacks and let them choose the order (unbeknownst to her). 

During the opening meditation we create a circle of energy that contains us both, much like distant healing. I gave my first reading today after a 3 month hiatus and the connection was amazing. 




And One For The Road!

Last month I took my Chakra Healing & Magick book offline; it is back with new healing tools. The Solar Plexus session was revised to reflect insights from recent Energy Healing sessions. Those of you who purchased the Kindle book will be able to update it soon. If you purchased the paperback before Sept 28 2018, let me know and I will send you an eGift to reflect the changes in the book.

Exploring the 12 (or 13) Chakra System

When I was a student at the School of Intuition & Healing (circa 2011) we spent lots of time connecting with the Chakras and looking at how they influence our lives. Many of us are familiar with the seven chakra system, beginning with the Root Chakra at the base of the spine and working our way up the Crown. 

In this scheme, the Heart Chakra is our center, with three chakras below and three above it. The ones found below the Heart Chakra are the Root, Sacral and Solar Plexus. If you have read my Chakra Healing & Magick book, I refer to these as the manifesting chakras because their energy is related to how present we are in the world, and if we're able to take an idea and see it to fruition. 





The three Chakras above the Heart can be viewed as metaphysical in nature, taking our attention beyond the physical realm through the Throat, Brow and Crown where we experience clairaudience, clairvoyance and intuition. 


Generally, we would begin with chakra meditations and healing activities to activate these seven energy centers. We can do this by meditating, practicing Reiki, yoga or other healing modalities. 

"Waking Up" Your Chakras

The more we work with the Chakras, the easier it is for us to access their energy consciously. It's almost like they wake up, and then we can use that energy to our advantage. We can do this with guided meditations, like the ones on Youtube HERE

There are also at least three Chakras directly over our heads in the Aura, and one beneath our feet that connects us with Mother Earth. The latter is called the Earth Star Chakra. It is one of the reasons why we enjoy nature walks, making it possible for us to feel the energy in the trees, plants and flowers!  

We can work with one Chakra at a time, working our way up the ladder from the Root to Crown, spending months or years on these Chakras; Before moving onto those above the head, which can be seen as transpersonal because they make it possible us to tap into the collective consciousness and our soul's plan. 

The more we activate the Chakras numbered 8-13, the easier it becomes for us to experience compassion and creative power. 





The 12 (or 13) Chakra System

Below you'll find a list of all the Chakras. I am including them for informational purposes. Please don't attempt to activate all of them in one go because we can get dizzy or ungrounded. As mentioned in my book, the deeper our grounding and the stronger our 'manifesting' Chakras, the higher we go in meditations. 

The Transpersonal Chakras are in pink: 

    • Unity Chakra: This one makes it possible for us to see ourselves as one with the rest of humanity, with nature and with animals. As far as I can tell, it's about the collective. 
    • Stellar Gateway: I'm not entirely sure about this one, and it sounds like science fiction, but the Stellar Gateway helps us to tap into the Universe's energy. Is this a Chakra or a doorway, or both? Hence the post's title... 
    • Soular Chakra: This one references our Solar System as well as the Soul. This is where I focus on when I am reading someone's Natal Astrology Chart or focusing on major issues that could be seen as Karma. 
    • Causal Chakra: I see and feel this as a Selenite circle above the Crown Chakra. Like all of the transpersonal Chakras, it begins to awaken naturally when we bring light down from above in chakra meditations. This energy center makes it easier for us to receive messages from angels. 

The transpersonal Chakras awaken on their own when we follow meditations that bring light through the Crown Chakra into the physical body (like the one mentioned above). 

*** For the first years of my journey, I focused almost exclusively on the Chakras in the physical body. Below is a rundown of these Chakras:  

    • The Crown: Connection to Source, your Soul & Intuition. 
    • The Brow: Thought, belief, logic, imagination, ideas. 
    • The Throat:  Communication skills, self-expression. 
    • The Higher Heart:  Compassion and unconditional love. 
    • The Heart: Self-love, love in relationships, abundance. 
    • The Solar Plexus: Confidence, joy, power, miracles. 
    • The Sacral Chakra:  Creativity, appetite for life, passion. 
    • The Root Chakra:  Roots, security, belonging. 
    • Earth Star Chakra: Our connection with Nature. 

Back To The Basics


Waking up the Chakras is a lot of fun, especially when you start to access the transpersonal energy centers. This is when meditation becomes an actual adventure. But before we flex the non-physical Chakras that take our consciousness out into the Universe (and potentially beyond!) we have to ground ourselves 100%

Think of a tree and how deep its roots have to be for it to stand tall without blowing over. Our energy works the same way, regardless of the type of healing that we practice. Before working on any of the Chakras above the Heart, read the first chapter from my book. It is available as a gift, HERE






Finding Our True Center... 


So this dawned on me last week. When we start thinking of 13 Chakras instead of seven, the Heart is no longer the bridge between the physical realm and the non-physical. The Throat Chakra is our energy center when we consider our energy body (or Aura). This was a pleasant surprise because the last year I have been attending a Naam Yoga class that focuses on sound and music as tools for self-healing and consciousness boosting. We tend to sing mantras for healing and the occasional pop or dance song. 

On a side note, before working with all 13 Chakras, we  ground ourselves from the Heart or Higher Heart. 


If you are interested in finding your unique sound and power, I would love to recommend Stewart Pearce's Alchemy of Voice. He teaches at The College of Psychic Studies and I remember his workshops being very popular. I was never able to sign up, but I did read his book and really like the focus on finding your signature voice. It aso includes breathing tools to activate it's power.
