How to Boost Your Immune System

How to Boost Your Immune System

How To Boost Your Immune System

 

This is a topic and question on everyone’s mind right now on a global scale, how can I boost my immunity?  I know for me when this global pandemic started my first thoughts went to how am I going to keep my girls safe, especially my eldest who is immunocompromised.

We went through all the normal steps that were being recommended by medical experts, social distancing, personal hygiene, hand sanitizer and vitamin supplements.

As an energy healer I was very aware that there was more too it, there were other things that had the capacity to be lowering our immunity.

According to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) there is and emotional component in 85% of all illnesses.

Stress and anxiety can have a huge impact on your physical health, especially chronic levels and during this time there is unprecedented levels of stress in people on a global scale.

To add to that is not only your own stress and anxiety, but what you as an Empath are feeling from not only those in your physical presence but the overwhelming vibration of our planet right now.

You may look at your own circumstances and feel you know what it’s okay, I am doing fine, yet still experiencing a low grade anxiety.  The issue I have noticed with that is, when it is your own stress and anxiety you can use your coping tools but when its coming from something you know nothing about, now that is challenging.

Just the awareness of the vibration that the planet is operating at right now can be a huge help to you, knowing that you may feel a low grade anxiety that is not yours helps you to cope.

Connecting in with your cosmic team and always asking the question “is this mine?” If not ask them to release it from your auric field.  Due to the high levels of anxiety right now, it is important to add this to your tool box and use it regularly.

Lets look at how stress effects your immune system:

“Since emotions run every system in the body, don’t underestimate their power to treat and heal” – Dr Candace Pert

What we think and what we tell ourselves can either support or undermine our health.  Because the immune system is so sensitive to thoughts, emotions, and subtle energies, energy healing can be an extremely useful tool in supporting wellness, fighting illness and speeding healing.


According to Neuroscientist Dr Joe Dispenza – You can read full article here

How to Boost Your Immune System

“As people begin to overcome emotional states that keep them connected to past experiences—as they break out of redundant habits and automatic programs, as well as change certain self-destructive attitudes and beliefs—aspects of their immune system up-regulate genes. This means that their thoughts and feelings are signaling cells within the body’s internal defense system to turn on healthy genes to make better proteins—otherwise known as healthy anti-bodies—as well as a host of other beneficial chemicals to balance and regulate the body. This process in turn reduces inflammation, suppresses tumors, mobilizes enzymes, and so on.

So the next time you sit down to create a better life, a healthier body, or a new experience, just remember that your brain and body have never been separate and the bridge between them is your immune system. You see, your body has always been spying on your brain. So why not use your nervous system—the greatest pharmacist ever—to activate your body’s internal army to create order for you every day? You don’t even need a prescription.”


Understanding the effect of stress on your physical body is the first step but as we all know stress is a constant in all of our lives.  So the important thing is to learn how to navigate it in your life, finding, understanding and implementing coping tools that help to reduce your stress levels.

EFT has been shown through scientific studies to have a great effect both on lowering stress levels but also the physical effects of stress on the body, including the immune system.  The following physical improvements have been recorded:

  • Lowers your blood pressure
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Lowers your level of stress hormones
  • Boosts your metabolism
  • Counters aging
  • Improves your resting heart rate
  • Helps your cells fight cancer
  • Counters insulin resistance
  • Improves your neural signaling
  • Counters autoimmune disease
  • Strengthens your cell membranes
  • Reduces oxidative stress

How to Boost Your Immune System

EFT Tapping has been scientifically proven to rewire the brain to bring both the body and mind back into balance!

“The most revealing studies of the physiological aspects of EFT have examined its epigenetic effects. A population of veterans with PTSD received 10 EFT sessions. It found regulation of 6 genes associated with inflammation and immunity. A pilot study comparing an hour-long EFT session with placebo in 4 nonclinical participants found differential expression in 72 genes. These included genes associated with the suppression of cancer tumors, protection against ultraviolet radiation, regulation of type 2 diabetes insulin resistance, immunity from opportunistic infections, antiviral activity, synaptic connectivity between neurons, synthesis of both red and white blood cells, enhancement of male fertility, building white matter in the brain, metabolic regulation, neural plasticity, reinforcement of cell membranes, and the reduction of oxidative stress. The broad function of this suite of genes is similar to that found in Church et al, confirming the association of EFT with the downregulation of inflammation and stress markers and the upregulation of immune markers.”  You can read the full scientific study here

Whilst seeing the scientific studies is needed and fantastic to see, I have found both my own personal experience and those of my clients is the most powerful. Just a short three years ago I was very unwell physically after many years of chronic stress levels due to my daughters seizures.

Through the use of EFT to navigate my stress levels, I was able to not only cope with what I needed to deal with I was able to heal events, memories and words of my past that were having a large impact on my body.

I went from getting sick all the time, a new cold or infection every week to feeling well and not catching any colds or infections.  I was amazed to see the difference in how I was feeling just by healing emotionally.

Boundaries

How to Implement Boundaries without Changing who you are!

How to Implement Boundaries without Changing who you are!


You are not here to save anyone or anything!

This is a topic that I have noticed showing up in private sessions with my clients, a big fear for empaths is “if I put boundaries in place I will lose what I feel is me, my need to help others, how do I do that if I have boundaries?”

When I see these themes occurring I know it’s something that more than just my clients are experiencing, so felt it was an important topic to talk about.  I would love you to consider this for yourself, when you think about putting boundaries in place, what do you feel?  Do you worry about having to change who you truly are by putting boundaries in place?

Many empaths logically know that they need to put boundaries in place but on a deep core/soul level they feel a sense of obligation and even guilt to continue to be an open door to help people.

I get this completely as this was me, I was told so many times, you need to put boundaries in place and I was like nope not doing it.  I too felt that to put boundaries in place I would need to change who I was, I am a caring and kind person, I help people, with boundaries I can’t do that……Sound familiar?

I came to a place where I no longer had a choice, I could not continue to be a door mat, to have a revolving door for people.  They would come in dump everything on me and feel so much better and then walk back out my revolving door, leaving me feeling exhausted, drained and overwhelmed.

Then the next time would come, again walk in, dump, walk out and I wouldn’t hear from them again until the next time and the next time and the next time.

I had to finally put a stop to it realising I could no longer be the door mat, and have the revolving door to these people.  Whilst it was not their fault, I had allowed them to do that, always being there for them, dropping everything every time they needed me.  Putting a stop to it was important, both for me and for them, constantly fixing things for people is not doing them any favours, it was in actual fact dis-empowering them.

boundaries

An important thing to understand is, as empaths and as sensitive souls we have an innate need within us to serve others.  We are here to help people and the thought of putting in boundaries mean I won’t be able to help them anymore and then I won’t get to feel fulfilled because I can’t do the one thing that my soul craves and that is to help and serve.

For a lot of you I know that it can feel selfish and what I learned about that personally was, if I didn’t put boundaries in place I then wouldn’t be available for anybody.  As a mum to two teenage girls, my medical warriors as I like to call them as they have both been through some pretty dire medical emergencies over the years.  They are the ones that deserve my energy more than anybody else.

Being a revolving door or a door mat meant I didn’t have the energy for the people that truly deserved it.  The people that are the most important to me, not only the ones that are there for me, but the ones that continually show up, they prove themselves over and over and over again.  They are the ones that deserved my energy.

Not the people that would come and go only when they either needed me for something or needed something from me, then they would leave and I wouldn’t hear from them again till the next time.

I then learned that I could actually be more powerful and have more influence, one because my energy was higher as I was no longer being a door mat, not been the person that they would come to and I would fix it for them or save them from something.  This was a big lesson I had to learn, I am not here to save anyone or anything.

“You are not here to save anyone or anything”

I am here as a place where people can start to unload but then find the power and healer within them so they can help themselves.  So if you can go from saying I am here to help people, to save people or to fix people to I am here to empower people.  You will have so much more influence on people, the people in your life and people you don’t even know, you are going to have more power in that, more influence in that if you choose to work to empower them.

I’m not going to save them, I am not going to fix it for them, I am not going to do it for them, I am going to empower them to do it for themselves.

They are then going to be able to go on in their life been able to take care of themselves, empower themselves and be more independent.  It was a time of reminding myself by saying “Nicole remember where your power is, remember your power is within empowering them to do it for themselves, in holding the space for them to find all they need within them”.

As empaths and sensitive souls we do that very well, I am sure you have noticed in your life that people, strangers even come up and just unload, telling you their life story and usually without any prompting.  That is because that is your power,  your power to allow people to feel like you are their safe space to finally let go of what they have been carrying around.

The mistake we tend to make and I made it very early on as well, is that we don’t feel like that is enough.  How is just listening enough, I have to do something about this, and that is a human need, feeling we need to fix it and make it better.

But if we can start to understand just how powerful that is, just listening.  If you have ever had an experience where someone just listens to you, not listening to respond but really listening to hear you, focusing wholly on you, not distracted by anything else, you would know just how impactful that is.

That is the gift you give to other people, just listening, focusing on them and them only and that in itself is enough, you are enough.  You don’t have to do anything else, you don’t have to fix anything and you don’t have to have all the answers.

boundaries

I know when I first started in my Counsellor studies that was my biggest fear, that I wouldn’t know the answers, what the right advice to give would be.  The first thing my teacher said to me was “being a Counsellor is never about giving advice, we don’t give advice, we help our clients to find the answers for themselves”, boy was that a huge weight off my shoulders.

It is the same for you, you don’t need to have all the answers, you just need to listen and care and as an Empath my love, you have that in the bag.

Now within that an important point and something I really want you to understand is, the process is:

  1. You listen
  2. Allow them to release what they need to let go of
  3. You also let it go, you do not absorb it, you do not carry it

As empaths we can have a bad habit of feeling that if someone is sharing it with me then that must mean I am supposed to carry it, or I am strong enough to carry it.  No, that is not the reason, the reason is like I said before you are the safe place for them to unload, not to absorb and not to carry.

An analogy for you:  When you are going on a trip and you take your bags to the departure desk at the airport, you don’t give the bag to the customer service officer do you, you put it on the conveyor belt.  The person serving you and getting you booked in, isn’t going to then carry your bags for you, are they?  Of course not they are just the safe place for your bags to go, knowing that they are in the right place and will be boarded onto the plane.

It is the same for you when people unload, it’s not because they want you to carry it, it’s because they just need to stop carrying it themselves.  So you allow them to unload and as I said that is a huge service you are providing right there and then you allow the baggage to be on its way.

Remembering:

  • You are not fixing
  • You are not saving
  • You are not giving advice
  • You are not absorbing

You are allowing that person to feel freer, to feel lighter, to feel heard and to feel understood and that is such a powerful gift you can give to people.

Now to bring all of this back around to the idea of boundaries, you are going to see that implementing boundaries is actually two fold:

  1. We are implementing those boundaries so people don’t feel that they can walk all over us, or they can’t take up all of our time.  They need to start to respect us and respect our time.
  2. It is also a boundary for yourself, you also do not step over that line.  You hold the space for them, but you do not absorb and you do not step over that line into their energy field and try to fix or save them.

I hope you can start to see that if we do it in that way, that we are not changing who we are, we are still the same person you don’t have to be different.  You don’t have to stop being who you are or fulfilling that innate need of wanting to help people.  It is changing what helping people means, changing what serving people means.

It is changing what helping and serving people means.

What you are now doing is just holding that container, that allows people to feel safe in unloading and letting go of what is just too damn heavy to continue carrying around, emptying it into the container, you are closing the lid and then its done.

boundaries

Instead of being completely open and having no boundaries and allowing them to step over that, then feeling they are telling me this, so it must be my job to fix it.  It must be my job to save them, NO it is not!

If you continue to do that, continue to not have any boundaries, continue to be the person that fixes everything for people or having to save people all of the time.  You are actually doing them a dis-service, we are all here to have our lessons, for our soul to grow but if you are continually going out of your way to fix and save people you are removing that opportunity of growth for them.

If you can think about it in that way, that by putting these boundaries in place I am actually helping them, I am empowering them for learning and growth the boundaries will no longer feel like you are doing something wrong or being selfish.

You are not losing your ability to help people, you are helping them in a different way.

You are going to help them to grow and a great example of this is when our kids start to grow, when they are little you are leading them along their path but as they become older, teenagers and young adults its time for us to step off their path and walk along side them.

Another great way to look at boundaries from an empowered place is to look at the role of our guardian angels, if you have been with me for a while you will know that your guardian angel can not step in and help you unless you ask aka boundaries.  So if you start to see yourself as an Earth Angel just walking along side people, guiding and helping them without stepping over yours and their boundaries, you are going to be one powerful earthly being.

Put your boundaries in place, Be their Guide and watch both yours and their lights start to shine like never before.

If you are having trouble putting your boundaries in place and are noticing you are feeling guilty or selfish and left feeling exhausted, drained and overwhelmed. I can help you to heal those emotions and allow you to become that powerful earthly being.  Click here to book your appointment.

When life gives you lemons

When Life Gives You Lemons

When Life Gives You Lemons…

 

 

“When Life Gives You Lemons You Need To Dig Deep”

It is in times like this where you can feel unsupported by the universe and your cosmic team and that they have left you to suffer, when in actual fact they are right by your side, just waiting for you to ask for their help.  As you may or may not be aware your cosmic team needs permission to step in and support you, so ask yourself the question “have I put myself in a position where they can help, assist and support me?”.

A lot of the time we can feel abandoned and unsupported and as the sensitive beings that we are, we can have the mindset of “I can do it myself, I don’t need help” or “I am the helper, I can’t possibly burden another person with my problems”.  So by asking yourself that question, you are opening up your awareness to your part in this situation or any situation where you have felt left behind and unsupported.

Your cosmic team will help you by taking your hand and leading you out of the darkness if you let them, it may look a little something like this:

You may start to notice little signs of light that grab your attention, for example:  When my daughter was diagnosed with Epilepsy five years ago, we spent many days and nights in hospital and what a drab and depressing place that is.  My cosmic team helped shine the light for me by reminding me of the wonderful support of her medical team and the brand new children’s hospital that had been opened not long before her first seizure.

So as you can see they were shining the light by showing me the good within the situation, without that awareness and asking for help, I would of stayed in the darkness of what we were experiencing.

What light is your Cosmic Team bringing into your current situation?

Card 1: Surrender Low Self-Esteem

You deserve success, love and abundance.  Set an intention to identify and release any remnants of low self-esteem.

Take note of any areas in your life where low self-esteem is causing you to hold back and not go after the things you really want, it may show up as feelings of “I don’t know enough, I am not enough or what will people think”.

Journal Question: If I had complete confidence in myself and my abilities, how would my life look?

ask your angels episode 39Card 2: Surrender to Silence

In quiet meditation or contemplation, let go and enter the stillness within.  Silence can heal and replenish you.

Silence is very powerful and can provide you the deep answers you have been searching for and most likely looking outside of you.  That quiet voice within you needs your full attention and times of silence will allow you to truly tune in.

Silence can also be extremely uncomfortable in the beginning, that in itself can yield great insight and answers – why is it uncomfortable?

ask your angels episode 39 Card 3: Surrender Your Attachment to Results

The formula for success is to do all you can to “make things happen,” then let go of the results.  Holding on too tightly to a desired outcome can sabotage it.

If you have an idea of how things should happen you are essentially strangling the universe, by wanting things to happen in your way and on your timeline.  By letting go of the results you are allowing the universe to freely bring forth what you need in a way that is for your highest good.

I wrote about this concept on my blog recently, you can check it out here.

 

Take some time with the Journal Question to gain further guidance and integrate this week’s guidance.

journal Question:  If you are not in control, what do you feel within your body?

ask your angels episode 39Card 4: Surrender to Effortlessness

Stop pushing so hard.  The art of living means going with the flow instead of trying to force the river.

Pay attention in your life where you are forcing things to happen on your timeline instead of connecting in to divine timing.  Look at that this week and see where you are pushing, like pushing a rock up a hill, get out of the way of the rock and go with the flow.

 

Take some time with the Journal Question to gain further guidance and integrate this week’s guidance.

journal Question: if you allowed yourself to let go and go with the flow, what would happen?

Journaling is a powerful way to incorporate the guidance you have received, bringing it to you on a deeper level and allowing you to gain great insight into yourself and what is true for you.  As you gain clarity and learn more about yourself you are well on your way to a life you truly deserve.

Card 1: Dynasty of the Divine Mother

Your guidance starts at 1:10 in the video below.

It is time to tune into your true nature, what is true for you? What is your truth?  What I am being shown is you in a place where you don’t know which way is up, feeling unsure of which way to turn and the angels are guiding when you are unsure of which way to turn always turn inward.

What feels true for you right now, listen to that, trust that feeling and follow that.  There are so many words being flung around the place right now and it can be hard to know what to believe, what to take on and what to ignore.  That is where your inward focus comes in, find your truth within you, because right now and any time really that is where you are going to find the answers for you and you only.

Prayer to dynasty of the divine mother:

Beloved Kuan Yin, Green Tara, Mazu, Goddesses of the Great Divine Mother, please help me to live my light, to live my enlightenment in each day, to know my own Self and to the live the beauty and bliss with peace in my heart.  Thank you for your help. Om Shanti.  I feel your Peace in my heart now.  May all beings feel and know this peace within.  Om Shanti.

 

Card 2: To the Celestial Mountain

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

This card is all about asking for help, turning to the mountain, a bigger power than just you.  When you are feeling overwhelmed by life it is a true sign that you have been relying on yourself, your own innate power only.  Now yes you are an extremely powerful being, that doesn’t mean you have to rely on that power only, there is a bigger power at play, the divine, the universe there at the ready to help you – if you will ask!

A Prayer to the celestial mountain

Beloved Kuan Yin, in the Ashram of your Celestial Mountain, hear me, please help me to let go of my difficulties in receiving help, in any feelings of worthlessness or distrust that prevent me from being guided, moved and placed in positions of divine assistance for my greatest good.  Help me feel worthy of help and help me receive that help which comes to me in unconditional love now.  Thank you! Om Mani Padme Hum.

 

Card 3: Ten Sisters of Light

Your guidance starts at 6:00 in the video below.

Each of the ten sisters is you, a part of you, a part that has learned lessons throughout the life of your soul, the limitless part of you, the part that has no end.  The angels are guiding for you that there are lessons that you have learned in previous lifetimes, that your soul knows and this wisdom is available to you.  Wisdom that is going to support you in this lifetime here on Earth, like card #2 it is about seeking the assistance, seeking the truth and seeking the wisdom you are needing in this moment and each moment ahead of you.

a prayer to the ten sisters of light

Divine Kuan Yin, Om Namaha, I call upon the Ten Sisters of Light that love me unconditonally, I call upon your grace, protection and assistance now in releasing past life wounds and patterns so that more of my Soul light can manifest in present time.  Please bless this process with your mercy, compassion and grace.  Thank you beloveds.  Om Mani Padme Hum.

 

Card 4: The Dance Unveiling

Your guidance starts at 10:04 in the video below.

Your layers are ready to be revealed, to be explored and to be healed – are you feeling that?  We are in a magical time where many things are surfacing for healing and it is up to you whether you will take up that challenge, and yes I say challenge because healing isn’t easy, but it is something you are more than capable of achieving as a spiritual being.  Think about the word unveiling, what does that mean to you?  What is showing up for you when you focus on that word and its meaning for you?

If you choose not to take on the challenge, that doesn’t say anything about you, it just says I am not ready right now and that is perfectly fine too.

A prayer for the dance unveiling

Beloved Kuan Yin, I now let go of any fear that would distort my perception and prevent me from beholding the highest levels of truth which I am capable of perceiving.  Help me now, beloved one, with your divine dance of mercy and compassion, that the confusion may clear, any distortion may be released, and the truth be revealed with grace and simplicity.  Unveil the truths with your dance of grace, beloved.  Thank you! Om Mani Padme Hum. 

 

 

This week is all about reminding you of the innate power you have within you but also taking it a step further and helping you to understand your personal power is not the only power available to you, call in the power of the spiritual world and the power of the divine to support you.

surrender

Surrender your Stranglehold on the Universe

“All we have is this moment, yesterday is gone and tomorrow is yet to arrive”

 

Surrender

The attempt and effort to control each moment is an exercise in futility, there are way too many forces at play at any given moment to have full control over anything.  As you do make this attempt instead of gaining the outcome you are looking for, you are in actual fact, cutting off the flow from the Universe.

 

Surrendering to each and every moment, releases anxiety and worry, in this moment you can breathe.  You can handle this moment!  Surrendering is letting go of control, relinquishing the idea that all you have is your own power that there is no-one else.

You can handle this moment! 

In a place of control you are cutting off the power of the universe, a stranglehold on your life and then wondering why it’s not working out how you envisioned.  It reminds me of a saying:

“If you love something, let it go and if it returns, it is yours forever”

surrender

Whilst surrendering and letting go is frightening, the immense relief you will feel is more than worth the moment of fear.  Remember as a child you didn’t have to worry how things happened,  you could rely on a bigger power – Your Parents.

It is no different now, there is a bigger infinite power at play – The Universe.  You just need to trust in her, like you trusted in your parents to never lead you astray.

When we are continuously worrying about things, whether it’s about what has been or what has yet to come, it’s like we are really putting a stranglehold on the Universe.  Not allowing it to flow through us because we are strangling it, strangling it with worry, strangling it with anxiety and strangling it with stress.

If we can surrender to the current moment, surrender to right now that is like us just releasing that stranglehold.  It is allowing us to really trust in the Universe, trusting that she knows what we need in each and every moment, trusting that she will provide for us in each and every moment, financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Providing us with everything we need in each and every moment, imagine living from that place, how different would your life look if you did that?  If you just surrendered, surrendered to each moment, not worrying about what has been, not worrying about what is yet to come, just surrender to NOW.

Having unwavering faith and unwavering trust, that everything you need is going to flow to you.  In actual fact what we have been doing by having the stranglehold is not allowing those things to flow to us, we are really putting a kink in it, making it extremely hard for information, guidance and physical items to flow through to us.

Just like when you put a kink in a hose, the water just stops flowing doesn’t it, there is no where for it to go, it certainly can’t flow through to the end of the hose.

surrender

 

All the Universe wants is to flow through you, your source is infinite, so you are infinite.  We are all connected, so if we can allow ourselves to be in the present moment to surrender to that, to lean in to that then things are going to flow with so much ease.  There won’t be that constriction, there won’t be that kink, it is just going to flow very easily.

“Have unwavering faith and unwavering trust, that everything you need is going to flow to you”

Take on the challenge of surrendering to each and every moment, letting go of the past and not worrying about the future.  How much will you surrender to the current moment?

To feel supported as you learn to live in this new way, our Mystical Membership is the perfect place for you to start to explore, Your Way and Your Path.  You can learn more here.

Card 1: The Great Gathering

Your guidance starts at 1:30 in the video below.

Now is the time of the great gathering of souls and it has been coming for a really long time, I know it may feel like this time was just thrust upon us, but it really wasn’t its been coming for generations.  The reason you have been drawn to this card today is because you are being asked to be part of the gathering and the question that is being posed to you right now is “Will you be part of the gathering?”.

Angels are guiding this is a time of coming together and for all of us to really dig deep, listen to our hearts voice and trust in the message that is coming through.  Each soul right now has its own task, I am being shown the vision of us all lining up and the divine giving us our marching orders, but each one is different.

The importance right now is to really listen to your heart and soul and understand your task or your guidance will be different to the person next to you and that is okay, that is how it has been designed.

Card 2: Keepers of the Earth

Your guidance starts at 3:27 in the video below.

Following on from Card 1 you are being called up with your task from the divine and it involves being a keeper of the earth, do you feel drawn to mother earth?  Is the harm that has come to our beautiful earth something that you feel deeply?  The question posed to you is: “Will you step into your role as “Keeper of the Earth”?

Angels are guiding this is something that will de-rail your life but more something you feel very drawn to, but haven’t undertaken due to lack of time or even fear of stepping into your power.  They are guiding me that you will be reading this nodding your head, knowing exactly what it is that is being asked of you.

In this time we are all being called to service and luckily for you, yours involves hanging out with Mother Nature, as an Empath what could be better than that.

Card 3: Star Mother

Your guidance starts at 5:58 in the video below.

As I have talked about in the two previous cards now is a time of stepping up and for you it is about nurturing, but not in an external way but an internal way.  You may not have felt nurtured by those around you and you have been drawn to this card because its something you are craving, even if you are not aware of it on a conscious level.

As the card states “you can mother yourself”, show yourself the love that you are so craving, providing yourself with the care, nurture, understanding and patience the Star Mother would bestow upon you.  The question being posed to you is: “Will you take the time to Mother yourself?”

Feeling loved, cared for and nurtured is such a deep need of all human beings, unfortunately not everyone receives that from their Earth family.  With that it shows you what you truly need and you can give that to yourself.

Card 4: Yes

Your guidance starts at 7:48 in the video below.

It is always interesting when these cards come up in a general reading because well I don’t necessarily know what question you were either pondering or the angels feel you need the answer to in this moment.

As I type this they are giggling because they know how much I hate these ones, they are assuring me you know exactly what this is about, even if you haven’t posed a question they are saying that a vision will appear for you to show you what this answer is in regard to.

So the answer is ‘YES’, go forth and prosper.

 

This week is all about stepping up, shining your light and being open to taking on your divine task and being okay with doing and feeling things differently to the person next to you.  Now is a time for lightworkers and yes you as an Empath are a Lightworker, to step forward with our innate power and gift of sensitivity.

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.

Card 1: Improving Health

Your guidance starts at 2:40 in the video below.

“Dear Archangel Raphael, thank you for your comforting and reassurance about this situation”.  WOW what a beautiful comforting message just what we all need to hear right now, to know the health of both you and the world, our collective of souls is healing.

I want you to tune in now to that message, how does it make you feel?  To know your health and the health of the world is improving, does it feel like a big weight has been lifted off you?

Archangel Raphael is showing me that is exactly what is happening, he is giving me a vision of a black cloud sitting over the top of our bodies from shoulder to navel and it is now lifting and being replaced with his emerald green healing light.

I find that really interesting as that is the area where this virus is attacking isn’t it, respiratory and lungs.  This black cloud is made up of fear, scaremongering, scarcity and anxiety and you certainly don’t need that in your life.  It is not helping you and certainly not helping any one around you.

Allow Archangel Raphael to come in with his healing light and relieve you of any burdens you are currently feeling and experiencing.

Card 2: Avoid Allergens

Your guidance starts at 5:40 in the video below.

“Dear Archangel Raphael, please assist me in identifying and avoiding allergens that may be toxic to my health and happiness.  Help me to only crave healthful food and beverages”.

Archangel Raphael is guiding to make sure you keep working on ensuring your body is safe.  In times like this we can tend to turn to comfort foods to feel emotionally comforted and what he is guiding is this action or behaviour isn’t going to help, its actually going to make you feel worse.

Now more than ever it is important that you are listening to your body, she has all the answers and will tell you what she needs in each and every moment.  If you can tune into that small voice from your body, you are going to notice the messages may be asking you to try some different things right now.

Archangel Raphael is asking you to look at the current going ons as an opportunity to do things differently, try different foods, leave old things behind and move forward with the new.

If you can remove the lens of fear and put on the lens of opportunity things are going to start to look different.  Yes people are panic buying right now across the world and leaving the shelves empty, but if you can come from a place of opportunity, saying “okay this is a chance for me to do things a little differently”.

Seeing this as a time of change, a time of stripping back of all the things your soul doesn’t need and giving you the space to allow in all the things that are going to help you to move forward.

A very multi-faceted message for you this week, see whether you can take on board his message of removing the fear lens and embracing the lens of opportunity.

Card 3: Leave a Stressful Situation Behind

Your guidance starts at 9:35 in the video below.

“Dear Archangel Raphael, thank you for giving me the courage and willingness to take good care of myself, including surrounding myself with healthy relationships and positive situations.”

Everyone is stressed right now and as an Empath you are going to be feeling it, even if you are pretty calm and being very pragmatic about the whole situation you will still be feeling the pain of the world on an energetic level.

Archangel Raphael is guiding for you to let it go, he is showing we can sometimes fall into the trap of buying into the fear of the collective, the scaremongering that as we call them “the sheeples” believe without question.

He is showing me a vision of you wearing this big black coat (similar to the black cloud in card one) and racing into the crowd and just soaking up all of the energy of the crowd mentality.  He is asking you to step back, take off the black coat and let it go.

I was talking to a client about this in the past week and she had been following my lead and embracing her calming essence and when she went out into public she started to feel like maybe she was wrong, maybe she was being naive and shouldn’t be so calm.  This is a pure example of that crowd mentality, if you are scared then I should be too.

The fear mind will hurt more people than the virus ever will, let that go.  Obviously keep yourself safe as I talked about in card number two, do all the things you need to do to stay safe but don’t buy into the panic, don’t buy into the fear, it is not going to help you.

Take off the fear lens and put on the opportunity lens and see what is stepping forward for you right now.

Card 4: Inner Authority

Your guidance starts at 14:40 in the video below.

“Dear Archangel Raphael, thank you for supporting me as I take back my power and listen to my intuition, desires and feelings.”

Well what a great message and perfect way to end our weekly reading and exactly what I shared at the beginning of the video, check it out below.

As I was saying in the introduction to this week’s video, if you haven’t tapped into your intuition before, now is the time, utilising and powering up your intuition is so important right now.

Trust your instincts, Trust your Gut it will not lead you astray, it will give you the answers you are looking for.  Archangel Raphael is guiding if you continue to look outside of yourself for answers, if you continue to read the news articles, to watch news on TV, to believe what people are posting of Facebook – you are not going to get anywhere.

You are not going to find the answers, the solutions, the comfort and calm you are looking for because they are not out there, they are within you.  As I mentioned again in beginning of the video, you are all going to experience this differently due to your past experiences, so how could anyone outside of you have the answers you are searching for.

Think about the words “Inner Authority” they sure do pack a punch, I love them.  Giving you the confidence to turn within and know you have authority within you to make your own choices, to make your own decisions and be provided with the answers and solutions from a source of power and authority.

Trust your instincts they are right for you and you only.

 

WOW what a powerful experience this week with Archangel Raphael, he sure has delivered for us.  Absolutely supporting us through this time and helping to remind us of our own Inner Authority.

If you are struggling right now and could really do with some extra support, I am here for you.  You can book your free strategy session here

Your Guidance Revealed

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
