Access The Soul Star Chakra and Take your Life Off-Road

A few years ago I read a book called The Universe Has Your Back, by Gabby Bernstein. I love it on so many levels, but there was one thing that stuck with me. From the moment that I began reading it, a specific visual kept popping into my mind. It was an image of my four year old self sitting on my mom or dad's lap and pretending to drive a car. It made me laugh ....

The message was that we may think we are driving, but we are too small to see the road, to reach the pedals or to know how to drive. The second part of the visual was me handing over the steering wheel and letting the adults do the driving. I felt a ton of resistance and didn't want to let go of the wheel πŸ˜…

At one point, Gabby uses the same metaphor - it blew my mind - us handing over a steering wheel and letting the Universe take over. Since then I have reminded myself of that clairvoyant image every now and then, but I hadn't given the actual steering wheel much thought until recently. A few weeks ago I sat down for my daily energy healing meditation, grounding myself before running white-gold light through the transpersonal energy centers or chakras, which can be found above the head in the Aura. 

These energy centers can be found in the spiritual Aura layer and have to do with the soul's evolution, as well as kilowatts of soul-light that we can channel into the physical world and into our lives. 

The Soular (or Soul Star) Chakra sits about two palms above the Crown Chakra. It has tons of information on past lives, innate talents, and traits we have inherited from ancestors. When I tuned into the Soul Star I saw an image of a steering wheel. It could be the steering wheel that we hand off as our soul navigates time and space, or maybe a map of the terrain. For example, it can tell us which routes will be easier, more fun, and which areas to stay away from. 

I am not entirely sure what it means, but it resonates. I would love to invite you to meditate on the Soul Star and to share your experiences on social media! 

My gut feeling is that as we awaken the Transpersonal Chakras, our awareness shifts and we can connect in deeper and more direct way with the intelligence that resides in the Universe, whether we see it as a Higher Power, the North Star or a Mother Goddess such as Tara, the female Buddha of liberation, compassion and global healing. It also helps to know that we are not alone; we can lean on that connection for support. The energy centers above the Soul Star Chakra are access points for what we might refer to as Divine Intervention. The lower chakras ground that assistance and intuition in the physical world in a practical way.  

Want to Know More? 

Working with chakras takes us up and down a ladder of awareness that gives us a broader view of who we are and how we fit into the Universe. Before going up that ladder, we need solid foundations. Here is a meditation to Activate the Earth Star Chakra, below your feet. This helps us connect with the spirit of Nature including trees, plants and flowers for deeper grounding. It is one of the Transpersonal Chakras (See HERE)

Ps ... I have just begun reading a wonderful book called TARA: The Liberating Power of the Female Buddha by Rachael Wooten, PHD. She is a depth (Jungian) psychologist, which helps to situate spirituality within the psyche and historical contexts. The name Tara means Star - so many meditations involve a shining star or a guiding light.

Astrology, Carl Jung and the Precession of the Equinoxes (BOOK REVIEW)


One of my Christmas presents last year was a book called Jung on Astrology - a collection of essays and letters from his family’s private collection. It was published by Safron Rossi and Keiron le Grice, both professors at Pacifica Graduate Institute (the depth psychology school that I will be attending later this year). The book is wonderful, though it helps if you already know how to read a natal chart. Great for energy healers, counselors, astrologers, and anyone who wants to go deeper with astrology and psychology ✨✨✨ 

Astrology Buff? Something is off with this photo...

One of the things I appreciated was Jung’s explanation of why natal charts can still be accurate, even though the Sun is no longer in the Sign of Aries every March. It would have been 2000 years ago, but the backdrop of stars moves gradually, coming full circle every 26 thousand years. This is due to the Earth shifting on its axis and our view of the sky changing with it. The Precession of Equinoxes: historically, the position of the Sun and stars was mapped on four days each year: longest and shortest days (Solstices) and half-way points (Equinoxes). 

A few thousand years ago, if a person was born on the Solstice in December 21st, the Sun would have been visible in the constellation of Capricorn. Nowadays it is likely two signs over, but we still use that ancient map to read natal charts. One of the questions asked is why we use a Zodiac map that should be out of date, but somehow still fits our personalities. A poetic answer could be that it takes thousands of years for starlight to reach us; Jung had a better ideaπŸ‘‡πŸ» 

The ancients used the stars to find their bearings geographically and psychologically, noticing that the energy on Earth (or in their lives) had specific, action-oriented and fiery qualities after the Spring Equinox each year, and other characteristics in the following months. They would have imagined and projected the archetypal concept of Aries onto the stars that were behind the Sun at that time of year, doing the same with the rest of the astrological months. The specific energy of those calendar weeks is unchanged by the moving backdrop of stars, which only ever served as a reference point. 

If you have seen a natal chart, we also study the position of the planets to learn about the unconscious and what makes us tick. The natal Moon in Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) needs relationships to feel secure, whereas Moon in Earth might be focused on work or material things. When the rest of the planets travel through that place the in the sky, they too are painted with that energy. For example, when the planet of thought, commerce and communication (Mercury) is in Aries, thought patterns and speech are ruled by Mars/Aries. 

This idea of linking the Zodiac signs to the calendar seasons and to the natural world resonates because my tutor at The College of Psychic Studies in London, Demian Allan, had us think of Zodiac signs in terms of their ruling planet, their Element (Fire, Earth, Air or Water) and whether its corresponding calendar month came first, second or last in the season (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter). We can work out a sign's personality with these three building blocks. 

The Zodiac signs that kick off a calendar season tend to be full of leadership and beginnings. We see this reflected in Nature around us, with flowers blooming, the heat of summer, the fall of leaves, or first hints of snow. The signs that correspond to the middle month bring stability and a fixed sense of purpose (hello Taurus!). And finally, the Zodiac signs (or months) that close the Season are blessed with the flexibility and adaptability needed to finalize projects in our lives. Ideally, our ten planets and luminaries will fall in all of these so that have leadership, determination and adaptability. Typically our Sun, Moon and Ascendant have more weight in the personality. 

We did study the Zodiac in Demian's class, but this approach gave us an intuitive read of the energy in each month (Zodiac Sign). So for example, if we look at Aries we have the confidence, charisma and action of the Element of Fire, taking lead as the first month of Spring, with the planet of war, competition and drive as its ruling planet. The Zodiac sign of Libra also has leadership qualities as the first month of Fall, combined with the sociability and intellectual nature of Air signs and the friendly influence of Venus. We went through the same exercise with all of the Zodiac signs to get an intuitive feel for their characteristics.  

I am not done reading Jung on Astrology but I would recommend it. As far as I can tell, Jung approached astrology as the projection of the unconscious onto the sky. The influence of the planets represents the archetypes that we see in ancient myths, tarot and movies. As a psychologist, Jung steers away from some of the more superstitious and deterministic elements of astrology, trying to root it in science (and in what can be explained). His approach will ground those of us who are into the magical side of astrology (HERE)

Reiki hugs, 

Regina

The Angel of Personal Power, Clairvoyance and Soul Light

Years ago I signed up for a workshop with Sue Allen, founder of the School of Intuition & Healing in London, where I later trained as an Energy Healer. The class was an immersion in the spiritual world; Sue taught us how to activate our intuition so that we could sense the presence of angels, archangels and various teacher guides - distinguishing one type of energy from another. 


Most of Sue's classes begin with the essentials: how to ground, clear and shield ourselves before reaching for Divine Light. We stated our intention to connect with angels, archangels and teacher guides of the purest, highest vibration. The idea is to go beyond any spiritual dimensions where egos and agendas exist, so that any messages or healing energies are liberating. 

Working with Light & Shadows 

We tend to think of angels as fluffy and full of light - but this isn't always the case. Angels are messengers; their vibration changes depending on their role in the Universe. I tend to see them as misty vortexes of light with colors mixed in. In some cases we might get a sense of wings, because that is how our mind expects to see and feel them. 

When connecting with the spirit world, not everything that shines is good, and not everything dark is bad. The only way to know is to connect with your Heart Chakra and see how it makes you feel. Some of the darker or heavier guides play an important role in the healing process.

The idea is to switch on our clairvoyant sensors so that we can see in the dark - embracing and healing personality traits that we would rather ignore or hide. We can do this by connecting with the archangels or with spiritual figures such as Jesus, Quan Yin or Buddha (depending on your background). But sometimes, a midnight blue angel with ‘night goggles’ is what we need to feel comfortable with our darkness. If we only reach for what appears to be bright, we will never feel comfortable with our Shadow or with anyone else’s. 

The Shadow represents anything in our psyche that make us feel uncomfortable. Rather than face it, we often shove it into the unconscious, or project it onto the world. This dynamic accounts for some of the traits that we admire and/or reject in others. In school we learned to channel healing through the Shadow, especially difficult emotions, integrating and processing it slowly. It also helps to make all of these patterns conscious, and the angels are quick to point them out. 

If you're new to angels I’d recommend connecting with Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. As the angels of protection, emotions and energy healing, they help us cover all of our bases. 

Clairvoyance and Soul Light  

Energy Healing brings more of our Soul’s wisdom into our daily lives. Part of the process is looking at all the things we’d rather sit on or ignore. If you are ready to go deeper, I have been working with Archangel Ozukiel, a midnight blue-violet angel who can help us bridge the divide between our light and our shadows. 

He helps us awaken clairvoyance through the Brow Chakra, where we hold thoughts, opinions and beliefs about the world; as well as the Sacral Chakra, where we tend to process emotions and energetic exchanges with others, conscious and unconscious. His blue light is soothing, calming our energy body before diving into the subconscious, where Archangel Ozukiel’s dark violet light fills the Shadow with Love.

The idea is that we need to love and accept the Shadow first, without seeking to change it. Only then can we integrate these traits from a place of love, understanding and clear-seeing, rather than a place of shame. We may even find ourselves appreciating these traits.

In a roundabout way, this actually brings more of your Soul's light (power) into your everyday life because every aspect of your being is now able to receive that energy. As long as we try to suppress the Shadow, we are ignoring half of who we are, and operating at 1/2 capacity. 

The Pluto Connection 

In natal, astrology Pluto rules both the personal and collective Shadow. It also tells us how we relate to power, and how we can access the power that our full self has to offer (integrating Shadow + Light)

The word power can have negative connotations in many cultures; personally, I like to think of it in Spanish. The same word, poder, refers to: 1) noun: having influence in the world, and 2) verb: being able to do what we intend to do. From this point of view, Archangel Ozukiel helps us access our soul's light-power, so we can do all of the things that we want and need to do, whether it's for our benefit, for another's benefit, or for the fun of it.  

These kilowatts of soul-light come from the highest aspect of our being. That level of awareness makes it easier for us to act with compassion and love. We find a balanced and loving expression of power. On the contrary, if we experience power surges or personal power ‘outages’, it is probably because we have yet to integrate our Shadow and we are still operating at half-capacity. 

I’m not there yet but I wanted to share, still healing and integrating everyday. Also, if angels aren’t your thing, we can explore the Shadow in counseling sessions or through astrology. ✨

Reiki hugs, 

Regina

Ask the Angels: What is a Soul (Pre-Birth) Contract? ✨✨✨

I recently discovered a book called The Angel Bible, by Hazel Raven. It is lovely and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an in-depth look at angels. It includes a meditation with Archangel Uriel, the GPS angel that helps us find our path and life purpose. The meditation guides us into our Soular (Soul Star) Chakra where we unravel a scroll that tells us what our soul contract is - essentially, agreements made before coming to Earth. 

I closed my eyes and pictured myself unraveling the scroll, much like a fortune cookie, only to find myself torching it instead... 


The message was that we are free to do and be whatever we like (harming none obviously) and to let go of the the belief that I wasn’t free to choose my own future, so to speak πŸ‘©πŸ»‍🎨 

The next feeling was a gentle reminder that all belief systems are an attempt at explaining what we think is going on around us. It’s OK to take these theories and beliefs as tentative roadmaps, but not to take them as absolutes. Sharing this experience in case it resonates. 

Below you will find a meditation with Archangel Raphael. As the archangel of Air, he helps us clear stagnant blocks of energy from the mental Aura layer, including beliefs that limit our possibilities. He is one of the archangels that I connect with most often in my work as an energy healer. 




The Angel Bible can be found in bookstores, and if you would like intuition tips, this post covers four things I wish I'd known (with certainty) when I signed up for intuition class in 2010. 

Reiki hugs, 

Regina

Anchoring Spirituality in the Psyche and in our Emotional Health

Happy New Year! I have big news and a also a few thoughts to share on how we can ensure that healing takes hold on all levels of our soul, spirit, and personality. First off, I am pleased to say that come September, I will be enrolling in a Masters in Depth (Jungian) and Counseling Psychology! The program lasts two and a half years, with a focus on the psychology of families, relationships and communities. The idea is to combine energy healing and psychology in the future, especially when we focus on personal growth and contentment.

The school is in Santa Barbara πŸŒ΄ It looks at the role that imagination, the Soul and dreams play in our lives. Initially, two programs caught my attention - the other was an MA / Phd in Mythological Studies. I went for counseling because it will give me grounding and the tools to work through the themes below. 

Self-Healing Is About Integration 

A few months ago I had a homework assignment that involved guiding a psychic meditation where we connected with stars and with Archangel Metatron. He is one of the angels who sits at the highest levels of reality, though he easily slides through the spiritual dimensions to reach us in the physical realm. When I asked my intuition why blend the two, the response was that soul healing runs along two major axes. The archangels help us go up and down a vertical ladder of awareness - much like a piano where we learn to play all of the octaves. The starlight connection helps with lateral integration, or healing of relationships.  

Vertical Integration (Spiritual)

If we think of consciousness as a ladder of awareness, we can go upwards to get a sense of a spiritual world - whether we believe in angels, goddesses, or one particular understanding of God. We can also take our awareness down to connect with the natural world, becoming sensitive to the energy and spirit of Mother Nature, which includes trees, rivers, mountains, flowers and crystals. Some traditions emphasize the Heavens, while others focus on Nature and the Earth. Energy Healers spend lots of time grounding because planet Earth gives us the foundations needed to access the upper echelons of the ladder. This is how we activate our psychic abilities and our intuition to connect with angels and teacher guides. 

Up isn't better than down. The natural world has plenty of wisdom to share with us. It is also healing and de-stressing. Just think about how it feels to leave your cellphone behind and go for a hike.  Grounding is essential for Healers; without it, we can burn ourselves out or even lose contact with a sense of reality and purpose on Earth. This is why the first chapter of Chakra Healing & Magick focuses on grounding our personal energy. 

> Vertical integration means feeling just as comfortable with the spiritual world as the material world - going up, going down, and bringing both together in the Heart. It is about spirituality, including our relationship with Mother Nature and any mystical experiences. 

Lateral Integration (Human)

This is the part that I found most intriguing: in this clairvoyant meditation we connected with the stars, taking our attention to other dimensions and universes (or inwards, to your own universe of feelings, experiences, and associations) In my consumer marketing days, we used to say that every human being was a universe: complete with beliefs, affinities, and unimaginable social interactions. Lateral integration involves healing of relationships on all levels: personal (yourself), individual (friends, lovers, family) and collective (society). 

Ask Yourself: How do I get along with people in my life, at work, in school or generally in the world? There are social groups that we feel a part of and others that we see as distant, different or foreign. This is where psychology comes into play; the attributes that we shy away from are often projected onto others. We can shine a light on the unconscious by studying astrology, in clairvoyant meditations, and counseling sessions.  

In this meditation I visualized a network of stars going out in all directions - a metaphor. We take our attention beyond ourselves and channel that starlight while intending to heal the parts of our personality that feel separate from or triggered by our surroundings. It flows through us, soothing the emotional body. 

Energy Healing meditations involve all of our intuitive senses: sight, sound, touch and even smell. I felt that starry energy circling through my arms: up the left, through the Heart and out the right hand. Relationships do have an influence on the emotional and mental layers of the Aura, but the healing was in the Heart. 

> When I ask my intuition what we stand to gain by expanding our awareness to include all of the stars in the Milky Way, the answer brings me back to the basics: connecting with yourself (inwards) and the people around you (outwards). Healing our relationships so that we feel belonging, community and compassion on a wider scale. Resolving conflicts and processing emotions is a big part of this.

From an energy healing perspective, lateral integration paves the way for transpersonal healing - when intuitive meditations that focus on yourself then filter through to people in your community through the transpersonal energy centers in the Aura. I will come back to this as it involves vertical and lateral awareness. 

The Intersection is the Sweet Spot

We heal by integrating the four directions (Up/Down, In/Out). Many personal conflicts come from stumbling blocks in the subconscious; these can be found by going inward. I have often looked to natal astrology for clues. We can work with Energy Healing and with creative tools to shine a light on our inner self. At the end of the day, lateral integration involves working with the psyche and our emotions; I am very much looking forward to the MA in Counseling Psychology! My goal is to combine counseling with tarot & natal astrology. 

Spiritual Integration (Vertical) is fun and exciting but the human aspect (Lateral) can be messy, painful and even ugly. It's not uncommon for spiritual types to shy away from it; I have done so myself. This is what I am working on now and it dawned on me that the four directions consolidate our healing efforts. The concept has given me a framework to work with - I hope it helps you too πŸ’™

Reiki hugs, 

Regina

Vibrational Medicine: Can we bridge the Scientific / Spiritual Divide? (BookReview)


I am reading a book by Dr Richard Gerber called Vibrational Medicine. It looks at healing from spiritual, energetic and medical points of view, walking us through research that has been done on vibrational healing in both laboratory and clinical settings. The book is a brick - 500 pages and at times very technical, but worth reading as an energy healer. 


One of the questions I am asked often is if energy healing depends on the belief of the client. The placebo effect is real and while we can harness it by working through feelings or beliefs that may undermine the healing process, when I worked in consumer healthcare, research was expected to outperform the placebo. 


Below you will find research highlights from Chapter 8 on Psychic Healing. As discussed previously, Energy Healing is complementary to medical care, not alternative. The terms energy healing and psychic healing are used interchangeably on this post.  




Vibrational Medicine, by Richard Gerber M.D. 


Dr Richard Gerber was a surgeon and this book looks at how medical care and vibrational healing can work together. The author explores the Aura and Chakras from technical and physiological points of view. He brings together several holistic traditions to give us the big picture. 


For example, the author discusses how energy flows from the Aura to the physical body through the meridian system, while presenting research done tracing the movement of fluids injected at acupuncture sites. As a Reiki practitioner, this was helpful for me because the hand positions used in Reiki coincide with the meridians. It gave me an understanding of how Reiki energy flows to the body's organs and tissues. 


The book covers research on vibrational healing from the 1800's until its publication in the 1980's. The studies mentioned below were carried out at universities in the US & Canada. 


A Quick Note on Research 


There are different types of studies, some used early in the scientific process to explore the potential for new lines of research. I am not a scientist, but based on my time in consumer health care, my understanding is that early stages of research further our understanding of anatomy, physiology and how biological processes interact (among other things).  


These exploratory stages are often in vitro (petri dishes). They give us an understanding of how organisms function and if a new idea might have success. If it shows promise, that line of research can move out of the relatively inexpensive petri dish to more complex studies.  


Each type of study has a purpose and a role within the larger picture, and the entire process is hugely expensive. The studies mentioned in Dr Gerber's book were organized and conducted by universities, which is understandable as healers may not have the funds or the knowledge to set up a study that achieves (measures) what what it sets out to do. 

Dr Gerber's book is fascinating. It goes through research done in labs on cell division, detailing how electric impulses are involved in a range of biological processes, before discussing separate studies where psychic healing was seen to have a similar effect to magnetic waves. The inner layers of the Aura have been detected as an energetic template; Dr Gerber's theory is that vibrational healing then flows to the physical body.  


Taking Belief Out of the Equation: 


The book is fantastic but it takes time to digest. Below are three studies that I found to be very interesting - all done done on animals and humans. Dr Gerber presents these in the book, as well as research that gives us an understanding of how psychic healing might have this type of effect on living organisms. 


1)  In one experiment researchers performed surgery on mice and measured their surgical wounds afterwards. One group of mice received psychic healing, one group a placebo (warmth to simulate the healer's hands) and a third control group. The mice that received psychic healing recovered before the others with the difference being statistically significant. Dr Gerber then explores laboratory studies on the effect that psychic healing has on cell enzymes as a potential explanation for this.  


2) This one I struggled with because thyroid tumours were induced in mice. Three groups of mice were exposed either to psychic healing, placebo or control. Delayed tumour growth was seen in the group of mice that received psychic healing. It didn't make their tumours disappear however, and once again Dr Gerber reinforces the fact that psychic healing is complementary to medical care, not alternative. The results are said to be statistically significant, but the book doesn't go into the details. 


>>> Despite these findings the researchers were unable to detect a magnetic field emanating from the Healer's hands. The studies mentioned were carried out by Dr Grad at McGill University and Dr Justa Smith at Rosemary Hill College. The same psychic healer participated in both studies, which brings up the question below ...  


Both of the above mentioned studies involved the same person giving psychic healing. Based on my own experience, a person's health, stress levels, meditation practice and diet influence their ability to channel healing. To create a controlled study on a large scale, I wonder if participating Energy Healers would need similar backgrounds and lifestyles?  


3) The study that I found most intriguing reported increased haemoglobin levels in human patients who received energy healing from nurses. As far as I understand, haemoglobin relates to the amount of oxygen that is available to our cells, which in turn relates to how energized or tired we feel. This got me thinking about my experience as a complementary therapist with cancer patients; one of the feedbacks I receive most often is their feeling less tired after an energy healing session. I had attributed it to relaxing, letting go of stress or sleeping soundly. The haemoglobin study was carried out by Dr Dolores Krieger, who at the time, was a professor of nursing at New York University. 


Energy healing is complementary to medical care, not alternative. In instances where a family member or friend was diagnosed with cancer, the focus has been to support them through surgery, chemo, radiation and other treatments. We can support those we love in many ways; energy healing is one of them (details here). 


If you are an energy healer I would recommend reading Vibrational Medicine by Dr Richard Gerber. It also covers spiritual themes such as the Higher Self and how that part of our being relates to the outer layers of the Aura and the upper Chakras. It is not an easy book to read - loaded with information much like a text book - but I am glad to have found it. 


Reiki hugs!

Soul-Healing with Archangel Raziel

Archangel Raziel is one of the angels that I connect with most often. He resonates with the planet Uranus - insight, illumination and cosmic connection - and as an Aquarius, I love that vibe. Like most of the archangels, his name comes from Hebrew. We can get a sense of what an angel represents by studying the letters in their name: Resh (R), Zayin (Z) and Yud (i) with El referencing the role that angels play as messengers of Light. 

In Kabbalah, Hebrew letters have a number, a meaning, and an energy signature. They are also said to be conduits of energy and according to the Sefer Yetzirah, visualizing the letters as black fire against brilliant white light activates them in the physical world*. The Hebrew letter Resh brings Peace, Zayin is a blade that cuts through illusions of fear or confusion, and the Yud represents the spark of divine light that resides in all of us. 

 

Archangel Raziel guides us in soul-healing and symbolism, especially where past lives, family lines and unconscious attitudes are concerned. Natal Astrology paints a wonderful roadmap; One of the things I learned in Demian Allan's class at The College of Psychic Studies is that past life theories about the North & South Nodes often mirror what happened to previous generations in our family. We can think about what our parents and grandparents went through and how their experiences influence our beliefs and attitudes. This is much easier to put into context in our lives, although past life healings can be powerful too. 

If we call on him before studying our natal charts, Archangel Raziel can help us spot unconscious patterns, conflicts and also talents that we can tap into. As discussed in a guest post with Dark Pixie Astrology: 'My Shadow is Somebody Else's Light" - we find our hidden treasures by working with shadow astrology. Raziel can help us pull back the veil in a safe and loving environment, while filling us with peace. 

Let's Meet Archangel Raziel

As the archangel of mystics and cosmic information, Archangel Raziel's range of themes is pretty wide. Ideally we'd begin by connecting with some of the more grounded angels, such as Archangel Michael and Raphael, before venturing up towards the more mystical angels. 

In the coming weeks I will share a guided meditation with Archangel Raziel on Instagram Live. In the meantime please begin with an Earth Star Meditation to connect with Mother Nature. This gives us much needed grounding before reaching for the stars with Raziel.

Reiki hugs, 

Regina
