Tapping Into Your Soul’s Infinite Potential ✨

I had a big aha moment and I want to share it with you. In the past I’ve written about how, astrologically, the North Node’s zodiac sign indicates how we can find happiness outside of our comfort zone. The opposite sign, or South Node, is where we get stuck in an unhappy and self defeating behavioral pattern. Moving from one to the other can be uncomfortable, and often requires self-healing. The tools in my book, Chakra Healing & Magick, will help you break free. 

My North Node is in Leo - it asks me to shine bright and share what I do openly and enthusiastically. But for the longest time, I was shy about sharing my energy healing, astrology and mystical interests. Showing off felt like a taboo growing up; the mystical healer side was also unheard of in my circle. Owning and revealing that was a challenge initially; my blog was anonymous for a few years. I came from a rational background, which made it harder. 

In short, Leo is about being yourself and not molding your personality and interests to fit the groups that you hang out with. Be yourself, and put yourself center stage where anyone can see you. 



In parallel, I have blogged about the Kabbalistic Tree of Life and how it depicts our connection with the spiritual world, as well as providing a map for our soul’s growth. The Tree is a map of sorts, with ten spheres of light, one in the physical world and the rest in the spiritual, mental and emotional realms of existence. 

You’ll find a diagram below. Without going into the full details here, the bottom most sphere (10) represents the physical world and universe.The upper nine represent the spiritual realm, and aspects of your soul are on all of those, ready to wake up.


The spheres above it, 1-9 represent various degrees of divinity and on a personal level, human consciousness. We become self-aware bottom up. The themes that relate to the bottom four spheres are where we most need healing: relating, mental clarity and integrity, emotions and physical reality…

The upper most spheres (1-5) are where we connect with the parts of the soul that have been least impacted by the trials of human life, and where we find our spiritual power. We need to let go of our human insecurities to get there, including limiting beliefs and attitudes that we’ve inherited from previous family generations and from past lives…

That freedom to be yourself can be found in the 6th sphere - your Sun. This is where we choose our soul’s path over conditioning, and turn our attention to our full potential. Aim for the infinite light, the uppermost sphere and beyond. The direction is what matters, not so much that we reach that place, if it even exists as a destination. 

The Adventure  of a Lifetime 



The Aha Moment. Two days ago I streamed a meditation on my spanish instagram; the focus was healing family patterns. Yesterday I was thinking about that meditation and it dawned on me that your South Node is where your soul enters the world, we find that energy in sphere 10 on the Tree of Life. Your North Node is on sphere #1, what we aim for as we grow and evolve. The ability to break free, through clarity and self-awareness, is found on the sixth sphere - that Sun ☀

There is more to Kabbalah than this, but each of the spheres on the Tree of Life has an archetype that relates to its energy and function. That Sun has two archetypes that help us unlock its light and power. One of them is your Soul; the task is to follow your soul’s path to infinite growth, leaving behind conditioning and limiting family patterns. That said, it’s not about leaving behind everything our family taught us, just the behaviors that may have worked for them in the past, but sabotage us in this life. There are a lot of good things that we can keep. 

Funny thing is I had this aha moment yesterday when the Moon was at 29 degrees Aquarius - my south node and what I need to leave behind. It’s my learning curve, amplified because I’m also a natal Aquarius. The natal chart points to our specific challenges, what we internalize.

So for example, my immediate family, my siblings and parents, are always encouraging and happy to shine. This bit of ancestral programming stuck with me because of my south node, and it’s self sabotage that I’ve been releasing for years. 

Even as I was writing my book, Chakra Healing & Magick, I was self-conscious about it. You won’t believe it, but it’s taken me this long to be comfortable with the magick part being out there for anyone to read. And the book is fantastic, have a look!

Rewrite Your Life Story with Tarot & Energy Healing

If you are lucky enough to find a tarot coloring book you will have struck a gold mine, as the symbolism in tarot speaks to our subconscious in ways that a pop culture or movie-themed coloring book never will” ~  Chakra Healing & Magick, by yours truly…



Energy Healing and Tarot

One of the key themes in my book is how we would all benefit from engaging with our creativity as part of the energy healing process - whether we turn to music, art, theatre or automatic writing. Writing and drawing are two of my favorite techniques, especially when I combine them with crystals or tarot. Tarot speaks to the unconscious in a way that is profound, and as discussed in Chapter 7, it also helps us focus our energy healing sessions. 

The idea is to heal the mental, emotional and spiritual weight of past experiences - tarot brings these to life in a way that is accessible to everyone. We can then combine those insights with energy healing to heal the past, rewriting our story so that we become catalysts for growth, as opposed to victims of circumstance. I offer energy healing sessions that are based on tarot, and this overall approach can be combined with Jungian counseling. Let’s go deeper by clarifying and reframing the personal narratives that hold us back. 

Color Your Unconscious 💜

Today I’m excited to share that one of my tutors from The College of Psychic Studies is releasing a tarot coloring book later this year - can’t wait to see it! Avril Price is a fantastic teacher, with 20 plus years of teaching and tarot reading experience. I signed up for a workshop with her last month, on my London holiday. Out this November, the book is sure to be a gold mine. It’s called The Watkins Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot Coloring Book. It’s on preorder now, have a look on Barnes & Noble. 

Avril’s new coloring book focuses on the original Rider Waite Smith deck, upon which most modern decks have been designed. It is a good place to start because once we learn the symbolism of RWS, we can read dozens of other decks without having to make a huge effort at memorization. But as I’ve mentioned elsewhere, what matters most to me is that I am drawn to the images, both intuitively and artistically. 


With this in mind, I’ve added snapshots of some of my favorite tarot decks to my latest Instagram post. They are all fab and easy for beginners. In full transparency, I haven’t seen Avril’s book yet but based on my experience with her in class, I’m sure it will be great. If you do buy another deck, having both visuals will come in handy. 

If you’re new to Diary of a Psychic Healer, the blog posts on this link are from my student days with Avril Price. Please have a look at the blog on your laptop and search for the topic of your choice. Many years and 550+ posts since this adventure began. 

Reiki hugs, 

Regina

Remote Viewing & Mediumship

I’m on vacation in London for a few weeks - it has been ten years since I moved away and I find myself loving it. It’s my favorite city, by far. Didn’t realize just how many friends I still had here, and it’s been so cool catching up with everyone. 

Along the way, I signed up for two workshops at my former psychic school - or the College, as we tend to call it affectionately. Funny enough, both workshops were held in the same room where I took my first classes, back in 2010, and where I later had to do a platform demonstration of angel readings. Have to admit I was feeling nostalgic. 

The first workshop was taught by the remote viewer, psychic and podcaster, Ann Théato. We began with a few intuition exercises to read each other’s Auras and pinpoint areas of tension. My classmate saw stuck energy in my left ankle (I wear a compression stocking that wasn’t visible) and in my tummy - both impressions, accurate. 

But the big surprise came when the teacher had us do the same psychic meditation that we did in my first ever clairvoyance workshop at the College, back in January 2010. You tune into your classmate’s home psychically, seeing and feeling it with your intuition, and describe it to them. When I attended that class 14 years ago, it totally blew my mind 🤩🤩🤩 Now it seems normal.

One of the things that stood out this week: I intuited that my classmates home should have music but that it wasn’t there. It turned out that her partner is a DJ and music was the norm for them, but his speakers broke down. The music was playing in his headphones, not the house.

It was a real testament to our tutor, Ann, that by the looks of it, most of my classmates were able to remote view each other’s homes. The teacher’s way of working was very direct, a quick opening meditation and onto the good stuff. 

After that we changed partners and tried a new exercise that blended mediumship and clairvoyance - tuning into the home of a family member that had passed away and describing their home. We didn’t know who the person was; finding out was part of the class assignment. 

I felt it was my classmate’s paternal grandmother, and when I described the house, the look on her face was a clear confirmation. I liked this particular approach because looking at a loved one’s house is emotionally easier than receiving messages. Still not keen to go there, but it’s nice to know that it is possible. It gives people closure. 

If anyone is interested in mediumship, Ann Théato teaches through her website (AnneTheato.com). And of course, mediumship has always been a big area of focus at The College of Psychic Studies. Since Queen Victoria’s days …

Reiki hugs, 


Regina 


Ps … I flopped at the classic remote viewing protocol. RV is a detailed psychic technique that has apparently been used by law enforcement to obtain information on cases. My previous remote viewing posts can be found here (2013-14)

Uranus: The Planet of Disruption (Case Study)

I’ve been going over key dates in my life and checking them against transits. A transit is when a planet moves through the zodiac and makes a connection with any of the placements in your natal chart, at an angle (say 60 or 90 degrees away), or crossing it directly. The direct transit is called a conjunction. It has a strong effect but whether it's easy or hard, to be confirmed.

Uranus is the planet of change, disruption and it also happens to rule Aquarius, my Sun Sign. It has a slow orbit though, taking 84 years to go around the zodiac. Uranus transits don’t happen that often, and with big Uranus transits, something disruptive happens out of the blue 😅

A funny thing to know about me is that from age 13 to 18 (8th grade to 1st year of college), I started the year at a different school each year. Six schools and three countries. And it didn't feel chaotic or hectic, despite the fact that I didn't like all of the schools. If you ever need advice on what makes school fun for teens, ask me. 



The first new school was the weirdest experience. My parents had been thinking of moving to a different city for a while. It was my last year of middle school -  we moved and my three siblings and I were enrolled in traditional all girl/boy schools. The school system was very square. Lots of memorization with no creativity. Having been a straight A student, I failed my exams, but made good friends. Social life, thumbs up. Academics, thumbs down. It didn't last. Two months later, we visited our old haunt on Halloween - for a long weekend, and stayed. I graduated the 8th grade at my old elementary school. 


I won't bore you with the rest of the details - but four high schools over the next four years, hopping across the pond to Europe, and moving to Mexico City, senior year. Then I was off to college in Boston 💜💜

It’s been fun - with highs and lows. 

Today I had a look look at my astrology transits. Uranus, the planet of disruption retrograded over my natal Moon in Capricorn (crossed it backwards) the summer that we first moved, at age 13. That September, Uranus stopped its retrograde (backwards motion) at 18 degrees Capricorn and turned around; my Moon is at 19°. In November, when we'd already bailed on the relocation, Uranus crossed my Moon for the last time, in forward motion.  

> Uranus’s orbit around the zodiac lasts 84 years. Those months were a predictable time for me to experience impromptu changes around my natal Moon. The Moon is what you need to feel secure; it relates to your mom & home life. An interesting preparation for what would come next: Switzerland - Mexico - Boston - Mexico - London - and now Mexico City the past ten years. I love spending time abroad. 

The moon in Capricorn seeks emotional & material stability. I created my own. Those teenage years I had a collection of photos on my wall, on a huge blue canvas. It traveled the world with me so that every new place felt like home. Blue relates to the sign of Cancer, an extension of your Moon, so to speak. Bring your home with you. 

Reiki hugs, 

Regina 

Ps … Pluto moved into Aquarius today!!!

Remove Inner Blocks to Love, Happiness and Success

There is a song that I love by the Mexican artist, Julieta Venegas, because of a line that goes something like “maybe I deserve this, but I don't want it.” She leaves and goes looking for what she does want. 

A poor translation on my part. But it got me thinking about whether we get what we deserve - or what we reach for. And in many cases, what we tolerate. That's in terms of creating the life you want to experience. 


It's cool to work on healing your self-worth, your boundaries, and to release what you think you deserve in life and relationships. Believing that you don't deserve a particular experience is a block; it takes away from your personal initiative and negotiating power. But objectively, lean into what you want to experience, regardless of whether you or others think you deserve X, Y or Z.  

Today I'm asking myself what is possible, not what people think should happen. The realm of possibilities is the playing field.
 
On a side-note, most healers and empaths are very tuned into other people's feelings and needs. I know this applies to me. Often, I find myself wondering if a lucky break isn't more deserved or needed elsewhere. This is one of the patterns that I needed to heal and release. It clicked for me a few weeks ago when I listened to this lovely song: 




>> Listen to your intuition - not the voice of your ego. The ego makes us feel smaller, its sabotage keeps us from achieving our potential. The flip side would be to assume we deserve more than others (also ego). 

One of my spiritual psychology teachers suggests connecting with that part of yourself, understanding how it seeks to protect you, and having an inner dialogue so that its energy can be repurposed to empower you. Release the belief that leads to self-sabotage. You can do this in any energy healing session, simply by setting the intention to fill that part of yourself with love, forgiveness and lots of healing. 

I’m working on this now but I wanted to share these insights. Self-Healing is a work in progress; we don’t have to be perfect and aiming for that keeps us from reaching our potential. As my middle school soccer coach used to tell us, if you wait for the perfect shot you’ll never score a goal. 

Free yourself in 2024! Join me on Youtube for meditations to go with my healing books. Enjoy and let's share with friends 💜 

Reiki hugs, 


Regina

Can a Camel Get Through the Eye of a Needle???

There is a line in the New Testament where Jesus tells his followers that it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich person to get into the Kingdom of Heaven. I grew up Catholic and this quote has been interpreted to tell people that having money somehow keeps you from getting into Heaven. And that not having $$$ gets you there quicker. 

My view is that not having a dysfunctional ego can get us through the gates (or create heaven on earth), but that’s not the point of this post. Let’s focus on the camel. 

I think that we missed the point, forgetting that Jesus was Jewish, and many of the examples he gave were rooted in his culture. Kabbalah is the mystical side of Judaism; I’ve been taking classes on and off since 2009, when I first moved to London. You’ll find all my Kabbalah posts here

In Kabbalistic lore, the eye of the needle represents the dark night of the soul. It’s represented by the hebrew letter Kof; each of the Hebrew letters has a spiritual energy and meaning. That is half of the metaphor. The Camel is equipped to get through rough times. On a literal level, a real-life camel has enough water in its hump to survive travels in inhospitable desert environments. Metaphorically, water is empathy and emotional connection. On a Kabbalistic level, the letter G (the camel) represents spiritual strength and wealth of all kinds.  

So based on this, I’d suggest that the camel is very well equipped to survive a dark night of the soul. Whereas money can pay for a lot of things (including therapy!), but money alone won’t get us through a dark night of the soul. We’d need a spiritual or emotional toolkit.

Without going into too much detail, Kabbalah provides us with a map for spiritual and psychological growth, a path to balancing that ego. The letter Kof crosses the veil that is known as the Void, where dark nights of the soul are said to occur in life. Emotional intelligence is needed there. Money might be irrelevant spiritually, but it’s always necessary physically. 


Emotional Strength & Compassion

I’ve written about the Kabbalistic Tree of Life before and how meditations can take us up and down those levels of awareness.

My teachers tell us to be cautious with our pursuits. As legend tells us, of four talented Kabbalists, one died, another lost his mind, the third became an angry skeptic. Only the last Kabbalist thrived. 

The one that survived did so because he leaned on the Element of Water. Have a look at this lecture from Spiritgrow: 


I haven’t mentioned Kabbalah as much on my blog because it’s quite expansive - better suited for a book than for individual blog posts. But this aha moment helped me release limiting cultural programming. 

Reiki hugs, 

Regina 


Ps … For those of you who have seen the Tree of Life, Gimmel is on the path between the 3rd and 5th Sefirot. Kof is on the path between the 3rd and 4th. This is based on the paths by Rabbi Isaac Luria.

The Ego Thrives on Comparison

Throwing a few thoughts out there because I can’t sleep 😅 It dawned on me today that the ego can only exist in relation to something else, it doesn’t stand on its own legs. It also has to be seen, which isn’t bad; we all need to be seen and loved.



But wouldn’t it be cool if your true self or your Higher Self shone through instead? So instead of comparing yourself with others and having that be the reference point for the ego, align your ego with your Higher Self and all of your joy, light and potential.

This shift can be done on both a feeling & mental level. The belief that we can be more or less than the person next door is where the ego starts. It needs comparison to exist, a point of reference.

One of my reiki teachers tells us that we can heal the ego so that it becomes a force for our light & purpose to shine in the world. I think the first step might be to stop comparing ourselves with others. 

When it comes to metrics where it feels like you've fallen short, fill that part of yourself with love & understanding. Don’t beat yourself up about it - work with that feeling. Where does the metric come from? Is it relevant and necessary in your life?

Heal your ego & redirect it towards your higher self so that it’s pulled in that direction. Read my book to develop that connection, Chakra Healing & Magick.

Chapter 4 includes questionnaires that will get you thinking about your sense of self on a deeper level, while the sections on psychic abilities and energy healing will guide you towards your Higher Self. 

That part of your soul taps into your full potential; your Higher Self powers your goals more than the ego ever can. 

A healthy ego catches all of that energy, sending it out into the world. But we can't do that if we're focused on comparison, and all of the icky feelings that come from that behavior. Hence the need for healing.

This is what I'm clearing now. 🍎🍎🍎

Reiki hugs, 

Regina
