What is Energy Healing?

What is Energy Healing?

Another great question sent in by one of our loyal listeners of “The Nurtured Empath” Podcast

 

This is a question I do get asked a lot and it is a broad topic as there are so many different types of energy healing that come under the umbrella “Energy Psychology”.

I am going to talk to you about the type of energy healing that I am trained, certified and have experience within and that is EFT-Tapping.

what is energy healing

EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques and also well known as Tapping as we tap on the upper body and face.  It is quite self-explanatory, it is giving you freedom from your emotional disharmony.

As I mentioned it is commonly referred to as tapping because we do a gentle tapping or percussion of the fingertips on the skin.  It is also described as a form of psychological acupressure, if you have ever had acupuncture, it is like that but without the needles.

It is tapping on the specific meridians on the upper body and face whilst you think about a problem you are experiencing.  What we have found with the combination of the tapping and the voicing of what is going on for you is a clearing of the short in the energy circuit, or better described as clearing out the emotional energy block.

Helping your mind and body to restore its balance, which helps you to gain and maintain optimal health.

Everything here on earth is made up of energy including us, so all that is within us is energy, and if you have blocks within your energy field it is going to have an impact on you in mind, body and spirit.

Energy healing and specifically what I do – EFT-Tapping – it really helps to release those blocks, allowing them to find their way out.  Because if you continue to hold these blocks within your system, it is not just going to affect your energetic system it is going to start to affect you on a physical level as well.

What I have learned and noticed through my training, the healing I have done on myself but also my clients is there always seems to be an emotional component to any physical issue or chronic disease.

It has come from something and stress is a very big indicator with that, and what we have found with EFT-Tapping is that it lowers the stress hormone – cortisol.  Tapping really helps you to return to a calm and relaxed state, instead of staying within a stressed and anxious state.

If you think about a time where you have been through a really rough time,  you are in a very heightened stressed state and it can be hard to come back to the beautiful calm and relaxed state due to what you have experienced.

what is energy healing

What I have found with energy healing and EFT is that it is just such a simple thing that you can do, it is essentially right at the end of your fingers, you don’t need to go and grab anything it is right there.  You can just start tapping on the upper body and face and start to release out some of that anxiety and stress, so you are not carrying that around with you for a long period of time.

Energy healing really is a tool to ensure you are not continuing to carry around heavy energy that is only doing you a disservice, mentally, physically and emotionally.

In a previous article and podcast episode I talked about the energetic body vs the emotional body vs the physical body and energy healing and EFT-tapping is really going to help you to support each of those bodies individually and holistically.

Our body is very wise and very good at healing things for us including chronic disease, if we allow it to get into the right environment to be able to do that and heal itself.

The problem with that is, if we are carrying around high levels of stress, high levels of trauma from past experiences in our body then it can’t heal itself.  It just doesn’t have that capacity, because it has all those blocks sitting in its system, so it needs us to help it and that is where energy healing and EFT-tapping comes in.

Now as an energy healer and certified EFT Practitioner I am working in this area each and every day, both on myself and with my clients.  Guiding my clients to release experiences of the past that are holding them back, gently of course.

On top of that EFT-Tapping empowers you to take back your life.  Obviously for the deeper wounds and traumas it is important that you are working with me in private session, as I will guide you and keep you safe.  But for day to day experiences, such as anxiety, stress, overall emotions that you encounter, EFT-tapping will help to keep you in a calm state despite what is going on around and outside of you.

A question I get asked a lot especially from my private clients is always “but what if I don’t know the words”, the good thing is, if you are in that emotion already, you are feeling sad or angry, stressed or anxious.  You are already in it, so you don’t need the words, just start tapping and you will start to notice the emotion dissipate and bring you back to a state of calm.

If you haven’t done tapping before, I have done a short video as an introduction to tapping for you to check out.

 

You can also book in with me for a private session either online worldwide or if you are local to the Gold Coast, Australia I also offer in-home sessions.

how long does healing take

How Long Does Healing Take?

How Long Does Healing Take?

 

Thank you to one of my listeners of The Nurtured Empath Podcast for sending in this question.

 

A very popular question that I get asked a lot, so I know there are many of you that have wondered about this at one time or another.

First thing I am going to say is “how long is a piece of string”.  What I really want you to take away from this article is it is very different for each person, but also flip that around and instead of putting a time line on how long healing is going to take understand it is a lifetime process.

how long does healing take

Healing is a Life Long Process

If you can take that approach that coming to Earth at this time, or at anytime, is about growth, it’s about lessons and it’s about healing.  If you can have that perspective you are not always going to be looking and asking where is the finish line, how long till I’m fixed, how long till I’m healed?

Honestly you are not someone that needs to be fixed, there may be things in your life that you have experienced that are now causing certain patterns to be appearing but it doesn’t mean that you are broken.  It just means that you are carrying around some heavy stuff and it is weighing you down.

It is about taking that time for yourself to start to heal.  I was talking to one of my clients just the other day, because this is a question I get a lot in client sessions as well.  When am I going to be fixed, when is this going to be over?  I have to break the news to them that this is never going to be over and the look on their face is like I just took away their favourite puppy dog.

But it is the truth, healing is an ongoing process, we are always going to be healing.  Even for me I am continually healing each and every day, I am journaling each and every day, I am tapping each and every day.

how long does healing take

Obviously when we start on our healing journey it is a little bit heavier, a little bit more work to be done because we are bringing up things from the past, traumas from the past that we have been carrying around for so long and that can be some heavy and deep work that we need to be doing.

As we are moving forward we don’t want anything that is happening in the present to then be something we need to heal down the track.  So that is what I mean when I say this is a lifetime process of healing and if you can take this approach, you are never going to get to that place again where you have been carrying around all the heaviness because you would of been doing it all along.

I feel that is important to understand why I say it is a lifelong process, so no I can’t tell you an exact timeline for your healing to be done.  It is very different for different people, some clients come to me and are just ready to heal everything, they are done carrying it around and are just ready to finally let it all go.

That takes time, some have been working with me on a weekly basis for over 12 months, they have experienced heavy traumas and we are working on them one by one, layer by layer.  Some clients just stay with me because they love their weekly session, knowing they have an hour that is just for them, no other demands on their time, this is their time.

It is important for you to determine what is it you are looking for, what is it you are wanting to heal?  As I mentioned I have clients that come to me and want to heal everything and then there are some clients that are like there is just this one event that keeps popping up and I just really want to stop thinking about it, or they want to forgive someone or forgive themselves.

They come for a couple of sessions and we heal that event and then they are on their way, but what I notice with these clients as well is they tend to come back.  They heal that one event and are good for about 6 months to a year and then they will reach out to me again and say I need to book in, I have another event surfacing that I would like to heal.

So it depends on the person and what it is that is happening in their life, where they are at and what it is they really want to achieve.  As how long their healing takes and the time that they are working with me 1-1.

As I mentioned in the beginning of this article, one thing I really want you to take from this is, healing is a lifelong process.  It is not always deep heavy stuff, if you are healing on a regular basis, every day.  You are not going to come 10 years down the track and find you have this heavy load you have been carrying around and needs deep and heavy healing.

Take the approach I am going to heal each and every day, I am going to take care of myself in the ways that I know are going to help me (however that looks for you).  As I mentioned I am journaling, tapping (EFT) and meditating everyday and that helps me to heal anything in the present whilst I’m also healing things from the past as they surface from my subconscious mind.

To answer your question “how long does healing take?”  It is a lifelong process but of course we can chunk that down into little bits, healing different events at different times to really help you to start to feel lighter, to feel more relaxed, to feel calmer and to start to achieve things in your life that you truly desire and deserve.

If you have any questions you would like answered, certainly let me know, you can comment below or send me an email.

Empaths and Trauma

Have all Empaths Experienced Trauma?

Have All Empaths Experienced Trauma?

“All Empaths Have Suffered Childhood Trauma or Have They?”

In the Empath community there is a lot of talk and even debate about this blanket statement, I have heard many Empath Coaches state that all empaths have suffered childhood trauma and that is why they are empaths.

You only have to look at the comments in these communities to see that that this isn’t necessarily the whole truth.  I know from my own personal experience that it isn’t true for me, I didn’t suffer from major childhood trauma, yet I am an Empath and always have been.

So, what is your view or opinion on this?  Do you feel your gift as an Empath came first or did you experience childhood trauma and that caused you to now have the traits of an Empath?

For me my experience and personal view and guidance on this topic is that I was given this amazing gift as an Empath from God.  I didn’t suffer any major traumatic experiences as a child, but I do feel my gift of being an empath did make me more susceptible to trauma.

I was talking to my brother just the other day about this, I am 1 of 5 children, the middle child, yes middle child syndrome.  I have two younger brothers and two older sisters and as we spoke about our childhood, I noticed how he interpreted certain experiences very different to me.

I started to notice that even though we grew up in the same house with the same parents and had similar experiences, we interpreted them very differently.  It wasn’t like there was anything bad, it could of been something simple like the way in which our dad might look at me and that could be traumatizing to me due to my sensitivity as an empath.

Where as that could happen to my brother and he wouldn’t even notice, it didn’t affect him in any way at all, he would just brush it off.  So as you can see it was not the trauma that caused me to be sensitive, but my sensitivity that caused me to experience certain events, actions, words, energy as a traumatic event.

Let me be very frank here, I am not saying that you may not have experienced trauma, many of my clients have, unspeakable acts of trauma that no person should ever experience.  This is just what I have experienced personally and noticed within the empath community.

Trauma is definitely something I see amongst the majority of my clients and 95% of my clients are Empaths, some have experienced as I mentioned unspeakable acts against them, but there are also those that just like me were traumatised due to their sensitive nature.

Either way there is a way home, back to your true self, to heal and release the hurt, pain and trauma.  You don’t have to keep carrying around that heavy weight, that burden is not yours to carry.


To begin on your healing journey, I am here for you, to be your companion walking along side you as you start to heal and release your trauma.  Book your online appointment here.

Energetic Body

Which Body is the Most Important? Energetic | Emotional | Physical

Which Body is the Most Important?

Energetic | Emotional | Physical

 

As an energy healer I spend a lot of time working on and talking about my energetic body, sharing ways to keep it clear from the energy of others.  I also focus a lot on both mine and my clients emotional bodies, healing from past experiences, releasing the emotional charge.

I’ll be honest my physical body hasn’t always been given the attention that she needs and deserves and I learned that lesson as my physical body started to break down after many years of chronic stress.

When my daughter started having seizures and was diagnosed with epilepsy, my stress levels went through the roof along with elevated cortisol levels.

Having high cortisol levels for a long period of time wreaks havoc on your physical body, 6 years on I am slowly recovering from adrenal fatigue.

So as you can see my energetic and emotional bodies had plenty of attention but my physical body did not and it showed.

There are three bodies you need to be aware of and give equal attention to:

  1. Energetic Body
  2. Emotional Body
  3. Physical Body

The energetic body can be seen as your spirit, as your aura, the first line of defence.  Your energetic body is the first one to be hit and as you start to know your energetic body so well, you will know when other energy has invaded it.

The emotional body is very closely linked with your energetic body, yet stands on its own as well.  Its about paying attention to and honouring your emotions, allowing them to flow through, to not get stuck, but to move through you.

As kids you may have been taught not to be emotional, hearing things like:

  • You are too sensitive
  • You are too overly emotional
  • We don’t talk about our feelings
  • Don’t air your dirty laundry
  • Don’t be silly
  • You want something to cry about, I’ll give you something to cry about

You know all those statements that were thrust upon us due to our sensitivity.  So it’s no wonder your may have a habit of suppressing your feelings and emotions.

As you continue to do that your emotional body will start to swell and when something starts to swell, it just gets bigger and bigger until it explodes or the tension is released.

I can promise you from personal experience when your emotional body swells, it will explode at the most inopportune time.  Sound familiar?

The physical body is affected by your energetic and emotional bodies, stuck energies and stuck emotions are going to have a negative affect on your body.  You may start to experience tension, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues just to name a few.

The Body Holds The Score!

The traumas you have experienced will always be remembered by your physical body, your mind may forget but your body will always remember.

So even if you say “oh I’m fine, I’m past that, I don’t even really think about it”.  What does your body say about that?  Is it still holding the pain, the trauma and the hurt?  Is it screaming at you asking you to give it some attention?

Below the surface is information and guidance for you that is going to let you know the truth of what is truly going on.

The work I do with my clients is guiding them gently below the surface to find the truth, to find the core of what is truly happening and why.

“Leave the Surface to Find the Core”

Energetic Body

Overall well-being isn’t just about taking care of one part of you, it is taking care of all of you, of all of your bodies.

Which of these are you paying attention to? All three, just one or two or none of them. Together they are responsible for your overall well-being.

words affecting your energy

How Your Words Are Affecting Your Energy

How Your Words Are Affecting Your Energy


“With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” – Spiderman

A quote that came to me when I started to think about the power of the word, clearly being married to a sci-fi geek for the past 20 years is finally rubbing off on me.

Words are so extremely powerful and with that does come a lot of responsibility, as the words you use determine your reality.

Whether it is the words you use when you are talking to yourself, the words you use to describe yourself or the words you use when you are communicating with others.

The words you use when talking to yourself are the most powerful, as you are the person that one you spend the most time with and two listen to the most.

The words you use to describe yourself also have such a big impact on you, if you think about the way in which you describe yourself you can either empower or dis-empower yourself.

This is where you can start to see the affect that your words have on your energy, when you are feeling empowered and confident your energy levels are high.  But when you are feeling dis-empowered due to the words you are using, your energy is going to be low.

I always remember been told as a young mum of two girls that I am their biggest influence as the same sex parent, the way in which I describe myself to them can have a huge affect on how they then see themselves.

For example, say I say something like “I look fat today”, they can then internalise that and think if mum thinks she is fat, maybe I am too.

This really leads into the power of the word when you are also communicating with others, you have an affect on those around you, even if you are not aware of it.  I know for me my kids don’t seem to be listening for the most part, teenage girls for you.  But there will be times where I hear my words coming out of their mouth, so clearly they are listening.

I feel this is very well demonstrated in our current issues in schools around bullying, for the most part for our kids, it is the words that are being said as opposed to physical bullying.  All you have to do is look at the rate of teen/kid suicide from being bullied at school and online, again the power of the word.

The old saying goes:

“Sticks and Stones may break my Bones but Words will never Hurt me”

Boy is that all kinds of wrong, the emotional trauma that comes from the words used against you, words used to describe you and words used to hurt you is so so damaging.

Emotional wounds take so long to heal and unfortunately are not given enough attention in today’s world, if you are emotional you are seen as weak, if you are sensitive, you are seen as weak.

We need to start to give our words more attention, to really understand their power, their influence and their affect not just on us but on those that we interact with.

A great way to start to connect in more with your words is to allow them to move through the following pathways:

words affecting your energy

Making this a habit is going to help you so much to spend more time feeling empowered and influential, using your words for good.  Knowing you have the power to decide how it is you want to feel and how it is you want to make others feel when they are in your presence.  Because not only will the use of your words make a difference, your energy level will be different and those around you will feel it.


It is my honour to hold a safe space for you as you discover, heal and release your past and move towards a place of happiness, peace and serenity.

Which Moon Phase is Your Friend?

Which Moon Phase is Your Friend?

Contrary to popular belief the full moon phase is my friend.

I am sure you have heard all the bad things about the full moon phase, like all the crazies are out or it is hard to sleep during the full moon phase.  Whilst I am sure these things are true, they just aren’t true for me.

Would you like to know how I found this out?

I remember before I really knew much about the moon phases or cycles, it was all about the full moon and believing the hype about it and what other people had experienced.

So what happens when you take on the beliefs of other people?  You start to see that happening in your life too, because your brain is very good at always proving to you that you are right, that what you believe is true.

So yes you would of seen some crazy people about or you would have had trouble sleeping.  Why?  Because that is what you believed.

But what if you could actually truly learn about each of the moon phases from an individual stand point, not what other people have told you, not what popular belief is but what you truly experience through each moon phase or cycle.

This is exactly what I did, I could no longer fool myself into believing what I was been told I should feel or experience.  So I went to work and charted out the moon cycles for 30 days and paying very close attention to my thoughts, feelings, experiences, energy levels and moods.

Moon Phase

Each day I would journal about how I was feeling, what I was experiencing both internally and externally and I used a system to indicate my energy levels.  So for low energy medium energy and for high energy.  I also noted what moon phase or cycle we were in, this gave me a good indication of which moon cycles were my friend and which were not.

Once I learned what was good for me and what wasn’t I was then able to plan my schedule around it.  For example I learned I am super energised on the full moon, very creative and can get so much done and yes I sleep very well.

Whereas on the Gibbous moon cycle, this one is not my friend, I would feel exhausted, low mood, low energy, low everything, so this was my time of rest where I would lay low.

So as you can see if I went on the popular belief on each moon cycle I wouldn’t be doing myself any justice, trying to do things at the wrong times and wondering why I wasn’t getting anywhere.

I challenge you to do the same, get yourself a book and chart out the moon cycles for the month and just start to see the pattern and gain a deeper understanding of the moon cycles as they apply to you and your energy.

Have a listen to the podcast episode where I briefly share with you each of the moon cycles.

 

I can promise you it will start to make a big difference in your life and help you to start to understand your own cycle too.

The Three Ingredients you need to let go

The Three Ingredients You Need to Let Go

The Three Ingredients You Need to Let Go

The three ingredients you need to let go

I am sure you have been told time and time again “you just need to let go”, I know I have heard those words more times than I care to count.

It may also have been worded in such a way that made you feel there was something wrong with you, like “you need to get over it” or “build a bridge” is another one I have heard.

Now if you are anything like me you may have been left feeling unheard, misunderstood and maybe even a nuisance to those around you.

I am here to tell you with the assistance of Archangel Azrael, there is a process to letting go and there are certain things that need to happen before you can “just let go”.

Archangel Azrael

On the podcast alongside the three ingredients you need to let go, the difference between walking away and letting go, I also share my very own personal experience of letting go of a 20 year relationship. Click below to listen.

 

Let’s talk about the three ingredients that you need to let go:

1.Heal 2.Grow 3.Let Go

So as you can see the process of letting go isn’t as easy or simple as people in your life and influence may have made out.

To ever have a hope of letting go of something that has caused you pain in some shape or form, you need to take the time to heal.

If you think about a physical injury, one that can be seen by the naked eye, are you ever told to get over it or let it go?  Of course not, because they can see the pain.

Emotional pain like chronic pain and invisible illnesses that can’t be seen by the naked eye, it can cause people to want you to just move on.

Now the kicker here is something that I really want you to understand, this isn’t about you.  This is about them and the uncomfortable feeling they are experiencing in not being able to soothe your hurt, to make you feel better to heal you.

So now you understand that part is not about you, lets chat about the part that is……the healing is your part, your responsibility.  Its giving yourself the time to heal, to work through the pain you have experienced and able to integrate it into your experience, where it no longer causes you pain in the present.

Note: This isn’t about letting anyone but yourself off the hook.

Through this process of healing you won’t have a choice but to grow, as you heal from the experience you are going to grow, you are going to learn things about yourself that you didn’t know before – aka growth.

One of the biggest parts of being on Earth at this time is for your soul to learn lessons and for the most part unfortunately those lessons come with pain.  Your role is to move through the experience, heal what you went through, take the lesson and then yes then and only then are you ready to let go.

These three ingredients are your key to starting to let go of things, people and experiences that have caused you pain and are still carrying it around.  Pain is heavy, whether that is physical or emotional, it is exhausting.

If you are ready to heal, grow and let go then its time for you to book your free call.  You can book it right here and I will share with you how I can support you as you start on your healing journey and let go of all of that pain that is weighing you down and leaving you feeling exhausted.

Your Guidance Revealed

ask your angels ep35

Card 1: Lost In Our Own Equations

Your guidance starts at 1:00 in the video below.

In our current times it is so easy to get stuck within your own mind and within your own thoughts, the angels are guiding they are very aware of all the anxiety that is within us and around us right now.  It is a prime time for anxiety right now and for those of you that have struggled with anxiety in the past, it may be surfacing now like never before because it is saying “see I told you so, I told you something would go wrong”.

So it is more important now to be implementing and using all the strategies I have shared with you over the episodes of Ask Your Angels, Journaling, meditation, EFT and grounding.  Right now I am showing up for each of you over on my Facebook page, Mon-Fri @8am AEST with my Calming Moment, giving you the opportunity to come out of your head and into your heart space.

Your angels like always are in a very supportive and cheerleader mode urging you to do all the things you know you need to do during this process and any challenging times you experience.  They have your back and are cheering you on from the sidelines “You Can Do It!”

Card 2: Lotus Rose

Your guidance starts at 3:10 in the video below.

A lotus rose grows and even thrives in the most difficult of circumstances, it actually grows in the mud and boy is that the energy we are currently residing in.  Like in card #1 there is so much anxiety around, everyone is experiencing at the very least a low grade anxiety and as an empath you are feeling and bathing in that energy.  The angels want to remind you just like the lotus rose, you too can grow and thrive through the mud, in actual fact the growth you experience right now will be so profound it will propel your soul forward 10 speed.

I have seen an example of this just this past week, with younger people aka millennial’s saying “we have never experienced anything like this before”.  Whilst true for them yes, its not true for us in the older generation, whilst we haven’t been through this exactly, we have all suffered challenging times.  So they have been plotting along with normal life, no mud to speak of and now they are struggling a little more than us due to their lack of experience and exposure.

They are certainly going to come out of this with a whole lot more resilience than they went into it with and the same with you, you are going to come out of this experience with amazing confidence knowing you can grow through anything, you can survive anything, because you just did.

Card 3: The Universe

Your guidance starts at 5:22 in the video below.

The universe has a message for you that she is healing and as she heals you heal too and the angels are saying this is happening for us, not to us.  I know in life it can certainly feel like things are happening to us and I understand that completely, but if you can have a shift in perspective you will start to see some of the benefits of right now.

Families are having more time to spend together (I know not always a good thing lol) but the rushing, the jam packed schedules, the filling our lives with things and experiences not for our highest good have been stripped from us.  We are all going to come out of this with a very different perspective of what we need and what we choose to fill our time with moving forward.

Have you seen the amazing footage of mother nature healing, animals coming back out and the amount of butterflies and dragonflies around.  All signs of healing, all signs of growing and all signs of transformation.

The angels are asking me to ask you “Can you see it?”

Card 4: Buddha Nature

Your guidance starts at 7:28 in the video below.

Come into the present moment, Buddha Nature is all about mindfulness and being in the current moment.  Following on from card #1 anxiety does not exist in the present moment, it is always in the future, worrying about what is going to happen, what is yet to come.

In this moment right here and right now, you are safe.  A great mantra to have with you in times of anxiety “My name is ……….. and right here and right now I am safe”.  It is only when you project into the future is your anxiety going to skyrocket, when you start to worry about tomorrow, what tomorrow will look like, how you will cope in tomorrows world, all future projected.

When you notice yourself doing this bring yourself back, a great way to do that is through grounding.  I have a great PDF I would love to send to you, if this is something you are struggling with.  Click below to download your copy.

Grounding Techniques

This week is providing you with amazing support to cope through our current global crisis, having your anxiety recognised and provided with ways to move through the high levels of stress and anxiety been felt across the world.

Card 1: Boundaries

Your guidance starts at 1:09 in the video below.

Your soul is asking you to put up some boundaries, asking “where do you need to put up some boundaries?”.  To really achieve the things in  your life that you want to achieve, boundaries are absolutely paramount.  Just like in the card people are going to come at you from all directions without boundaries, they are very used to been able to cross your boundaries.

As empaths and sensitive souls we are very open, open heart and very compassionate and you may have even been a “Mrs Fix-it” in the past, always wanting to help those that are in need.  Your soul is saying this needs to come to a stop, you need to turn inside and really see and establish where your boundaries lie.

Angels are guiding when you don’t know where your boundaries lie, that is when you feel exhausted, anxious and overwhelmed because you don’t know where you stop and another person begins.  That is where that boundary line is extremely important.

The angels are also showing me that this is something you are afraid of doing, what if they get upset?  Chances are they probably will, especially those that are used to you being an open door, where they can come and go as they please, take-take-take and take from you.  When you close the door, close down the border they probably aren’t going to like it.

In saying that, they are the ones that you need to have boundaries around, they will be the ones that have caused you to feel so exhausted, suffer from anxiety and feel extremely overwhelmed.  They need to be on the other side of the line and they will get used to it and they will start to respect you for it, your time and your energy is precious and you need to protect it.

Card 2: Mintakan

Your guidance starts at 4:22 in the video below.

Your soul is whispering to you about your longing for home, feeling uncomfortable here on earth and struggling to deal with the harsh energies and not being around people that understand you on a deep level.  That feeling of lost, you may have said to yourself “I just feel lost, I feel confused” is that longing for home.

As Empaths a lot of us have that feeling, we feel strange here like we don’t belong, as we just seem so different to everyone around us.  The reason that you are different is because you are here to change things, you are here to do things differently.  That sensitivity that you have, that you have been told time and time again that you are just too sensitive, that you are overemotional, that is your gift, that is your superpower.

You are here to spread that and I know for many of us, we have shut that down because we were told “it’s not okay to be sensitive”, but its your gift, it doesn’t mean you have to change the world, just changing yourself, changes the world.

As an Empath shouldering the weight of the harsh energy here is too much, as the card says about belonging, you need to surround yourself with people just like you.  As you do that, start to feel seen, understood and respected, the weight will lift, it’s like you are sharing the weight no longer all on your shoulders.

Your soul is whispering to thrive here you need to feel connected here and as you do that the longing for home will lessen, connecting with like-minded souls like in our “Nurturing Empaths and Senstive Souls” Free Community on Facebook.

Card 3: The Age of Light

Your guidance starts at 8:00 in the video below.

Your soul is whispering “You Are Ready!”  Your angels are guiding you may be feeling that you don’t have what it takes, but you do, you have been training for this for lifetimes.  I was talking with a client about this just a few days ago, as we come to Earth we experience amnesia, we don’t remember anything and that is because if we did the pain of being away from heaven would be too much.

As you go through your journey here you start to remember, that is why it is called an Awakening, bit by bit you remember.  As things start to resonate with you, that is your soul remembering and a clear sign you have done this before and feeds directly into your souls whisper.  “You are Ready – You have got This!”.

Your angels are showing me a vision of you standing in quicksand or a thick mud and feel like you can’t move, that you are stuck.  But this is self-imposed due to the fear you feel of not having what you need, not knowing enough, they want you to know you have everything you need within you, you have done this before.

Its time for just small steps, just taking one little baby step at a time, as they say you don’t need to see the whole staircase just the next step.  As you take one step the next step will show itself to you.

As I mentioned in card 2, as you heal yourself you heal the world, as we are all connected, we are a collective of souls on this journey together.

Just take one little baby step this week and your cosmic team will support you if you allow them to.

Card 4: Mirror

Your guidance starts at 12:37 in the video below.

Your soul is whispering to you about being a mirror.  Who or what is triggering you?  Anything you see outside of you is happening within you, so what is going on within you that needs healing to stop seeing that outside of you.  Of course this has nothing to do with you accepting bad behaviour, its about you looking at what you are seeing outside of you from a different perspective.

Asking the question “why am I seeing this?”  Your energy is aligning to this for some reason, otherwise you wouldn’t be seeing it.

Obviously others have their own things going on, so it’s not completely about you, but there is a part that is aligning from your energy and that is the part you want to focus on and gain a deeper understanding of what needs healing within you.  As you do that you will no longer start to see that outside of you, your energy will no longer be aligned to that.

It is your subconscious way of saying this is what is happening within us, are you ready to heal it?  It will continue to shine a light on this until you feel ready to heal.

I am sure you have noticed patterns in your life, same things showing up in different situations with different people, but the basis is the same pattern.  This is again your subconscious saying okay this needs healing, are you ready now?  As you heal that pattern, learn the lesson, let go of the pain, it will stop showing up.

Your soul is whispering we have lessons to learn and I need you to see what is happening outside of you is what needs healing within, so we can stop repeating this and move onto our next lesson.  Are you ready?

This week is very much about healing and your soul whispering “Are you Ready?”  If your answer is ‘YES’ I can help you, support you to begin on your healing journey…….book your free discovery session here

Energy of the Week | Ask Your Angels Ep25

ASK YOUR ANGELS ~ EPISODE 25

Energy of the week for 20th-26th January 2020

Archangel Michael provided me with insight for the week ahead, before I even looked at the cards.  He is guiding that there may be a situation that comes up that feels similar to past experiences, but he is guiding it is not the same and wants to encourage you to not allow the past situation or experience topple on top of the current one.  When you bring past experiences into current ones it can make the current one 10 even 100 times worse.  What you can do though is bring forth the lessons you learned, what did you learn in the past that will help in the present?
Tune in to your Cosmic Team and Ask Your Angels what do I need?
Pick card 1, 2, 3 or 4.

Your Guidance Revealed

Ask Your Angels Ep25

Card 1: Honour & Trust Your Feelings

Your guidance starts at 3:19 in the video below.

Prayer: “Thank you, Archangel Michael, for supporting, guiding and protecting me as I listen to and act upon my feelings.  Help me understand and express my emotions with love.”

Wonderful to see Archangel Michael confirming what I have been sharing with you on social media over the past week (if you are not following me, you can find me @nicoleivens on Instagram and Facebook).  Honouring and trusting your feelings is such a big part of your growth as a soul, but as humans we are very good at suppressing, escaping and quietening our feelings and emotions.  There is always something or someone within reach to distract you from feeling, from processing your emotions.  As I shared this past week the pathway is “I feel you, I acknowledge you and I release you”, following this is going to see you feeling lighter, brighter and more energetic.

Your feelings are there for a reason, they have a message for you and all they want is to be heard and that is done through feeling.  So your guidance this week is to FEEL, I know I know, not fun but the inner work very rarely is, but boy is it rewarding and empowering.

Let me know below how this resonated for you, or if it didn’t let me know that too, as I would love to share with you further insights on why you may feel that way. 

Card 2: Energy Healing Work

Your guidance starts at 6:02 in the video below.

Prayer: “Thank you for sending healing energy to me and through me, for my own blessings and for all those around me.  Thank you for connecting me to loving and high-integrity healers and teachers of energy-healing modalities.”

Energy healing is such a powerful modality and one I am very passionate about and advocate for as an experienced practitioner, maybe its the reason you have been drawn to me.  Its been a privilege this week to hear so many of your stories and connecting with many of you in our free discovery sessions, if you have pulled this card it is just another layer of confirmation that it is time.  Time to take care of yourself, time to do things in a different way and that you are ready to master and nurture your energy.

Have you thought about energy healing and wondered if it could help you?  This is your angels way of giving you the big thumbs up.

Let me know below how this resonated for you, or if it didn’t let me know that too, as I would love to share with you further insights on why you may feel that way. 

Card 3: New Beginnings & A Fresh Start

Your guidance starts at 8:18 in the video below.

Prayer: “Thank you for bringing new opportunities and offering support, and for helping me release and heal my past.  Fill me with trust as I experience these life changes.”

New beginnings and fresh starts can be scary, your angels are guiding its not a time to look at the big picture but at the little baby steps  you can take in the direction of your ideal lifestyle, how does that look for you?  They are also showing me that this is essentially what our spiritual path is, just putting one foot in front of the other heading along on our journey.

When we think about new beginnings fears can pop up around leaving your comfort zone, leaving behind things and people that you feel safe with.  The unknown can be a scary place, but it is where the magic lies and where the biggest growth happens.  Unfortunately not a lot of growth happens within that comfort zone, that’s why its called comfort.

As the prayer says “helping me release and heal my past” this part is essential to moving forward, to a fresh start,  you don’t want to be carrying the old experiences around with you, they are heavy and they keep you stuck and tethered to your current position.  Its time to let go, to release, you are ready to master and nurture your energy for a new beginning.

Let me know below how this resonated for you, or if it didn’t let me know that too, as I would love to share with you further insights on why you may feel that way. 

Card 4: Prayer Will Help This Situation

Your guidance starts at 11:37 in the video below.

Prayer: “Dear God and Archangel Michael, I ask for your Divine intervention.  I welcome your help, and I trust and follow your guidance with gratitude and grace.  I need a miracle and ask that you send one to me and this situation quickly.  Thank you and amen.”

The angels are guiding this card may be triggering for you, that maybe prayer is something you associate with the church system as do I.  Prayer was something for a long time I struggled with as I was raised as a Catholic and my girls do still go to a Catholic school, so prayers were something I guess I felt was forced upon me, I was told when and how I could pray.  So no wonder it was triggering for me, through my own healing and working with my angels I have learned a new perspective, a new way to look at prayers.

Your angels are asking me to share this with you, look at praying as you talking, asking and communicating with the divine (however that looks for you) and then meditation (again however that looks for you) is where you receive answers, guidance and solutions.  The divine and your intuition is a very quiet voice and just can’t be heard above our noisy world, so that is why meditation or your quiet time (be that out on a walk or engrossed in your favourite hobby) is so important to help you feel guided and supported.

Think about having a conversation with someone here on earth, if you do all the talking and don’t let them get a word in edge ways, there is no to and fro, no feedback, no support or guidance, its all very one sided.  Whereas if you allow the other person to converse with you, its a much better experience, a relationship built on mutual trust and respect.  Its the same for your relationship with your higher power, asking for what you need and allowing them to provide this to you in a way that works for them.

Let me know below how this resonated for you, or if it didn’t let me know that too, as I would love to share with you further insights on why you may feel that way. 

 

A beautiful week ahead empowering you to know by listening, trusting and embracing your inner guidance system aka your feelings you will experience tremendous growth and heading in the direction of the life you have always wanted and dreamed about.  It is within your power.
You Are Ready To Master & Nurture Your Energy
