Six years ago I read a fantastic book called Ask Your Guides, by Sonia Choquette. It was my introduction to the world of intuition, angels, spirit guides and helpers. At first I was nervous about opening that door but Sonia's approach makes the whole process transparent and safe. In a roundabout way, her book also led me to the London College of Psychic Studies where I studied psychic development for four years. Since then I quit my day job to become a full-time healer, writer and teacher so the change has been pretty dramatic. I started blogging in 2010 to keep track of my experiences in school. You can find all of these posts under the labels of Healing School and Psychic Studies. Two tags for two fantastic schools, the College, and the School of Intuition & Healing where I qualified as an Energy Healer.
After five years in London, last year I moved to Mexico City where I've been blogging, healing and hosting my weekly A1R Psychic Radio Show. Life still feels like an adventure and this summer I'm going back for three months. I just signed up for class at the College of Psychic Studies and I couldn't be more excited!
This is my summer term, can't wait to get started:
- Working with Angels and Guides: This class is the main reason I'm going back for the summer. During my time in London I slowly worked my way up through the introduction, foundation and intermediate/advanced lessons with Amanda Roberts. I am hoping to be a certified Angel Channeller someday, and for that to happen I need to take the Advanced class, which is channeling mixed with teacher training. To be honest I'm thrilled and also a little bit nervous. I have been using angel cards so much the past year that getting back into a "pure connection mode" might be a challenge, but I'm ready for it. To graduate I also have to do dozens of case studies, so please Like my Facebook Page to get updates, and potentially a free 15 minute Skype reading this summer. I have to do thirty sessions before moving onto 40 minute readings. All I need is feedback and a smile.
- Intermediate Tarot: I have been reading tarot since 2009, mostly self taught, and I thought it would be nice to take a class. Avril Price (the tutor) is said to be fantastic and I'm just psyched to be a part of it. We can also bring our own cards so I'll be using the Wizards Tarot by Corrine Kenner. It has so many layers, including astrology, healing, and the traditional themes of the cards.
- Psychic Astrology: This is also a new for me, so far I have barely skimmed the surface focusing on past life astrology at the Kabbalah Centre, and with Jan Spiller's awesome book, Astrology for the Soul. In class we will go through our birth charts every week, looking at different aspects and how we can use them for readings and spiritual psychology. I'm not sure what to expect, but it will be great!
- Astrology and Magic: I was done choosing my classes for the summer and thought, if only there was a magick class I would really feel like I was at Hogwartz. The description for this class was too much, how to use visualisation and the planets to manifest our dreams, goals and other desires. It fits in very well with the Heart Manifesting Workshop that I attended this February.
There is one more class that I'd love to take this summer, a Shamanic Medicine Wheel workshop at the School of Intuition & Healing. I figure I can wait until I'm settled in next week before signing up for any more classes. As always, my blog and Facebook Page will be full of updates, personal reflections and notes. This will be a busy summer as I'm also aiming to rewrite the second draft of my memoir, a prequel to my early Diary of a Psychic Healer entries. That's the nut to crack, I'm hoping London will inspire me.
