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.

“Our emotional wellbeing has a massive effect on our physical wellbeing” – Nicole Ivens

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.

Together we will:

Unlock the Healer Within, Heal Past Traumas, Understand your Gift and Strengths as an Empath, Heighten your Self-Worth and Self-Confidence, Uncover the Culprit behind your Patterns, Uncover and Release Limiting Beliefs, and Create space for your dreams to manifest

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.

Your Guidance Revealed

Ask Your Angels Ep22

Card 1:

Your guidance starts at 2:17 in the video below.

HEALING – As I look at this card, I am drawn to the star over her heart centre and the tears being shed.  I feel as women, empaths and sensitive souls crying and being emotional has been something we have been targeted for, so it is something we either tend to hide or not do at all.  Your angels are guiding its the perfect time to do some healing, as we head into a new year and new decade, they are showing me this time of year can feel a bit like a pressure cooker.  Lots of things ending but also new beginnings, planning celebrations to bring in the new year and those dreaded new years resolutions (which never really eventuate, do they?).  Feeling the need to make big plans for the year to come, new goals, intentions and resolutions can leave you feeling very panicky with only a couple days left in the year.  Questions like what will it mean if I don’t make any goals, or what will it mean if I make the wrong goals?

What you are being guided right now is to just stop, stop and breathe and for you to know if you don’t make or set any goals or resolutions your world will not implode, the 1st of the year is just another day, no different to say from today till tomorrow.  It is the meaning you are putting on it, but what will see you in a better place this time next year will be the inner work.  Letting go and healing anything that you don’t want to take with you into the new year and new decade, take this time and I promise you will start to see something different for your life, instead of the same ole same.

Card 2:

Your guidance starts at 6:07 in the video below.

BUDDHA NATURE – Here we go again with our story continuing on for the week, card #1 saw us doing the inner work with healing and now card #2 is asking you to centre yourself, come back to your core and take some time out in nature just like the Buddha did.  What have you been searching for outside of yourself?  That has been within you all along, its time to let go of the external world, turn inside and take the time to understand yourself and situations on a deeper level.  Your inner self is where all the work begins and continues along your spiritual path and this is where change begins before it is then reflected outside of you.

Taking the time to reflect on your life, your past year, your past 10 years, what theme has shown up throughout your life over the past decade.  Its the perfect time to look back and bring into your awareness your experiences, your growth and your healing, ensuring you are leaving behind anything that is no longer for you.

As empaths and sensitive souls nature is our lifeline, the place that brings us back to life always.  Just stepping outside for us is like an energetic line directly to the divine re-energising us to continue along your spiritual path.  When was the last time you re-energised your spirit and soul?

Card 3:

Your guidance starts at 9:20 in the video below.

LOST IN YOUR OWN EQUATIONS – I am being shown you are getting lost and trapped within your own perspective, this can happen when you are on your spiritual path working on your personal development alone, a time comes where you may need an outside perspective.  Right now you are going round in circles not seeing how your own vocabulary and thoughts are keeping you stuck, reaching out to a friend can help you to see the roadblock.

I know this isn’t easy we can feel unsure of reaching out due to fear of judgement or people trying to fix us, finding someone you trust and know they can give you the honest feedback you need right now.  If not then its time to reach out to someone like me, who can really help you to see what is holding you back, I would be honoured to support you and to help you see changes and shifts that you can make to break out of the same old cycles and patterns you have been enduring.

Card 4:

Your guidance starts at 12:40 in the video below.

WISDOM – What a beautiful card to end our guidance this week, it is the true result of moving through each of our cards this week.  As you take time for healing, come back to your centre and cleanse your perspectives, this is where you end with amazing gold nuggets of wisdom.  As Dr Joe Dispenza says “Wisdom is a memory without the emotional charge”  so as you heal and release anything that is no longer serving you aka stuck energy and emotions all you are left with is the wisdom from the lessons you have learned.

You were never actually supposed to carry around the pain, you were supposed to let it flow through, exactly what emotion is “energy in motion”.  As you do that you are left with these amazing gold nuggets of knowledge and wisdom that not only help you but you can pass onto others, because there are other people still going through what you have already mastered.  I am sure you would of loved to have had someone support you through your lessons and now you have that golden opportunity.

Look back, become aware and use all you have learned to launch yourself forward into a beautiful new decade of opportunity.

 

I just love our story this week and it really is what I aim to do here with my life’s work is to Support, Educate & Nurture you to be the best version of yourself.  With that comes Healing, Inner Work, Connecting with Nature and finally Wisdom.

Ask Your Angels Ep20

Card 1:

Your guidance starts at 1:25 in the video below.

RELATIONSHIP HARMONY – A wonderful card to receive right before the Christmas Period, what could be better than feeling the love and peace that comes when each and every person has an open heart.  This is the gift the Angels are giving you, what they are asking from you is that you manage your expectations during this time, Christmas is usually a time where we come together with people we don’t necessarily see all that much throughout the year and this can cause friction and tension sometimes.  Coming into it with an open heart and lowering your expectations allows you to the enter the space with a lightness and with that comes a more joyful experience, as you aren’t expecting anything from anyone and with that comes harmony and beautiful surprises and miracles bestowed upon you.

In the video below I share more about this concept and process and give you some insight on what will ensure your experience is one of joy and love.

Card 2:

Your guidance starts at 4:05 in the video below

ANGEL THERAPY – Fancy that another week of our guidance following on like a beautiful story, the angels are blessing you with open hearts all around and now Archangel Raphael is coming in and showering you with his beautiful healing energy and asking you to hand anything over to him, you don’t have to do it alone.  As I mentioned in Card 1 Christmas can be a time of tension and stress and we can sometimes feel we have to do it alone, but NO your angels are there to support you and pave the way for you to have a beautiful relaxing experience if you allow them to help you.

In the video below I talk about how Christmas is known as a time of coming together, celebrating and forgiveness but it can also be a time of reflection, what has the past being about, what has it taught you?  In my view and the angels are guiding as well its not the best time to be trying to mend deep hurt with other people, because tensions can be running high, alcohol flowing and expectations are also high.

Card 3:

Your guidance starts at 6:58 in the video below

YOU ARE SAFE – What is better than that, to know you are safe.  Our beautiful strong Archangel Michael is with you, ready to cut through any negative energy that you may pick up with his infamous sword.  He is wanting you to know that he has your back!  There may be situations you find yourself in over the holidays that maybe are not of your choosing and not something you may know how to necessarily cope with, this is where he is going to come in and support you, if you allow him to.

Ask for his strength and courage to help you through times that may see you surrounded with people that are not necessarily on your vibration level, yes family are not always understanding or respectful of our difference and our growth and that can be challenging.  So ask Archangel Michael to be with you and surround you in his beautiful purple light and to cut any cords with people that you no longer want your energy attached to, now this doesn’t mean that you don’t love them or even want to sever all communication, it is just cutting the energetic cord, so your energy stays protected.

Card 4:

Your guidance starts at 11:43 in the video below

ALL IS WELL – What a beautiful way to end our story this week and also as an individual message for you, ALL IS WELL!  Isn’t that what we all want to just know that everything is going to be okay.  What the angels are guiding is if you can follow their guidance during this time, and well of course always, then all will be well.  They are also guiding there are going to be times where you need to let things play out, even if it doesn’t feel good and even downright painful sometimes, you just need to let it be.  Now I know as empaths and sensitive souls this isn’t easy for us, because we are so compassionate and always wanting to help and serve others.  But sometimes we just need to let things be and see where they go, not interfering, just going with the flow and only acting from a place of alignment and when you feel guided to step in.

Now we all know how easily we can be triggered by family, boy are they good at pressing our buttons, but it is your job to just stand back and allow it to just flow over you like water off a ducks back.  No reacting, just observing and removing yourself from the situation if need be.   As you do that you will soon see that ALL IS WELL.

 

What a beautiful story this week, an empowering one I feel, knowing that you are in control, you can lower those expectations and go into each day and each event with an energy of lightness and relaxation.  Not concerned with things going perfectly, but just spending time with people you love and knowing you have the power, strength and healing of the Archangels right by your side.

Your Guidance Revealed

Ask your angels Ep19

Card 1:

Your guidance starts at 1:51 in the video below.

STAY OPTIMISTIC – I am being shown that you have been working really hard on yourself, doing the inner work that I talk about, but it is feeling like nothing has changed, you are still the same person.  Your angels are guiding so much is different even if it isn’t showing on the surface just yet, changes also begin within and then appear externally.  A vision they are showing me is of this little cartoon character plowing along in his little tunnel and then he stops just before he reaches his breakthrough, don’t do this, keep going, the changes you have made will soon show up on the outside.

This is a great time to look back over your journals (if you have been journaling of course), and see who were you this time last year, what were you experiencing, what did life feel like back than?  I love doing this, it really reminds me of how far I have come.  Have a listen to the video where I go into more detail.

Card 2:

Your guidance starts at 3:19 in the video below

SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE – Its time to de-clutter both externally aka your space and internally, both actions will be reflected inside and out.  Have a look around at your space now, is it clear and light or dense and heavy, I can pretty much guarantee it is the latter the fact you chose this card.  So as you start to cleanse your space, you will start to notice your mind feeling light and de-cluttered too.  What you are seeing in your environment is always a sign of what is going on inside for you as well, that is why I love de-cluttering my space, it makes such a huge difference to the heaviness within my mind.

Continuing on from card 1 it is showing the importance of not giving up, but also making space for the new to arrive in your life.

Card 3:

Your guidance starts at 5:12 in the video below

WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS – As our story continues on this week, you are being guided to watch your thoughts, what are you focusing on?  Our thoughts are connected to our feelings which sends out the signal to the universe about what we want in our lives, so what signal are you sending out? There are three words to remove from your vocabulary that are going to help you to shift your focus from what you don’t want in your life to what you do and they are:

If you find yourself slipping back and using these words and essentially focusing on what you don’t want, you are going to use a Vibe Reset:

The vibe reset is: “So what do I want?”.  As you ask this question it is really going to help you to bring your focus back to what you really want in your life, as opposed to worrying about the things you don’t like in your life.

Card 4:

Your guidance starts at 7:27 in the video below

EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS – Following along with our story aka energy for the week, we have ensured we keep going, then clearing out some space and checking in with your thoughts and now you have a golden opportunity to explore your options.  We are at the perfect time right now, end of a year and end of a decade, you have a blank slate a head of you, a new decade, what do you want?

Think about what you want to experience in this new decade, what do you want to be able to look back on when you reach the end of the next decade and be able to look back and go WOW that was the best decade YET!  Check out the video below where I go into more detail.

Your Guidance Revealed

Ask your Angels Episode 15

Card 1:

Your guidance starts at 2:00 in the video below.

Rebirth – This is a time of letting go, releasing things and especially people that are no longer for you.  You know who I am talking about, someone that you have struggled to let go of, for one reason or another.  As humans we are really good at remembering all the good times, looking back at the past with rose coloured glasses and sometimes forgetting the reason for the separation in the first place.  The angels are guiding this is due to being frightened, scared of what will come and what it will mean for you and mean for the other person.  As you let go, you actually make space for something or someone new to enter your life, without that space it makes it very hard for that new person to come into your life.

It’s a time of allowing your heart centre to open up to new opportunities, they are showing me a beautiful rose opening in the centre of your chest and your energy expanding ready to welcome the new into your life.

Card 2:

Your guidance starts at 4:16 in the video below

Angels – Your angels are asking you to welcome them into your life in a deeper way, really starting to build a relationship with them.  Just like here on earth when you meet someone for the first time, you don’t expect a deep connection straight away it takes time, to build trust, loyalty and love for one another.  It is the same for your angels, its about building a connection with them and they are ready and waiting to communicate with you, in a way that suits you.   Spending some time with them every day will see you starting to build that connection and allow them to be a bigger part of each and every moment.

Each morning I spend some time with my guardian angel “Gabrielle” (I know funny, as I have a daughter named Gabrielle), I say good morning to her and thank her for her support and help and also let her know I am removing all limitations, so she can continue to support me in all areas.  Takes less than a minute but sets me up for the day of support from her, as she needs my permission due to our free will.   Give it a go and let me know your experience.

Card 3:

Your guidance starts at 6:54 in the video below

Crossroads – It’s decision time!  Your angels are showing me that you are standing at a T-Section, not sure whether to turn left or right, agonizing over the decision, worried you will make the wrong one.  What they are showing me is that we all end up in the same place on our path, the way we get there is just different, whether we go left or right, will bring different experiences.  By connecting in with your angels and your higher self, you will feel supported in your decision knowing you are following the path of more ease and less struggle.

You don’t need to rely on your power only, why not call in your angels and allow them to share with you their higher view of your life.

Card 4:

Your guidance starts at 9:17 in the video below

Clarity – You are absolutely craving clarity right now, you just want to know the answer and what your angels are guiding is it is right in front of you, if you will only open your eyes.  What they mean by that is, letting go of your preconceived ideas and allow what needs to be, to be.  As humans we are extraordinarily good at having a plan and not shifting from it, no matter what.  If you can open up your vision a little wider, you will see what it is you have been looking for, it is there you are just not seeing it right now, similar to a normal photo vs a panoramic photo.

Stretch out that vision and you will start to see the answers, the possibilities and the opportunities that have been there waiting for you all along.

Your Guidance Revealed

Energy of the Week - Ask Your Angels Episode 13

Card 1:

Your guidance starts at 1:50 in the video below.

Surrender to Setting Limits – As sensitive souls and empaths boundaries are one of the most important things you can do to protect your energy, and also one of the hardest things you will ever have to do.  As an empath and sensitive soul it is our purpose to help others, so having to set boundaries can be both hard and scary at the same time, thoughts of who will I be without being there for everyone all of the time and what will people think are sure to bubble to the surface.

What I would like you to think about is the times where you feel really energised and what that means for the energy you are putting out into the world and then when you are depleted what energy is being received by the world.  Another way to consider enforcing boundaries is how you view others that have boundaries, what do you think about them?  I am sure it isn’t anything bad, if anything you probably envy their ability to do that.

With all that in mind, how do you feel now about placing some boundaries to protect your beautiful sensitive energy?  Let me know in the comments below, I would love to hear your experience and I can then offer you some support in putting your boundaries in place guilt free.

 

Card 2:

Your guidance starts at 3:34 in the video below

Surrender the Habit of People Pleasing – This is a habit that many sensitive souls aka helpers and nurturers tend to have, we love to be able to help others and in that we can get stuck in the habit of doing exactly what they want to make them happy.  The problem with that is it can cause others to never actually be able to get to know us, because all we are ever doing is what they want and it really leaves no room for your beautiful unique light and gifts to shine.

Now people pleasing isn’t something you just stop doing, it is more of a recovery, “Hi I’m Nicole and I’m a recovering People Pleaser”.  Little by little you can adjust your behaviour, not doing things for people just to please them, not holding back when you know there are either words or actions that would really help this person on a deeper level.  Trust me as you start to do this, what you feel and experience will be so much more and benefit you so much more on a soul level.

You will soon notice the adjustment of others behaviour towards you as well, they will be coming to you because they know you can really help them on such a deep growth level as opposed to “oh she will just do this for me”.

How does starting to reduce your habit of people pleasing, are you ready to join me in recovery as a people pleaser?  Comment below and let me know what your experience is and how you feel about starting to make changes?  I can then support you with ways to help in your recovery.

Card 3:

Your guidance starts at 5:32 in the video below

Surrender Fear – Fear is something we all have at one time or another and about different things, sometimes fear can be a good thing keeping you safe in times of perceived danger.  The issue comes when that perceived fear is just that, not actual danger, but something due to past experiences in your life making your primitive brain feel like you are in danger.  This is when your body will react within 3 secs of the perceived danger putting you into fight, flight or freeze mode, your conscious mind always takes a little longer to click to what is happening and then confusion sets in, to what is actually happening.

It can be very easy to just allow fear to be in the drivers seat, follow its lead and stop whatever you were attempting to do that your primitive brain felt was a danger.  Whilst that’s all fine and good, its really sucks when it starts to really affect your life on a deeper level, stopping you from really living your destined life and your angels feel sad when they see fear holding you back as they can see what is possible for you and your potential, they are asking you to allow them to help you in times of fear, call them in and ask them to help you to feel calmer and to understand the purpose of your fear mind.

Let me know by commenting below how fear is showing up in your life and then I can provide you with extra support on ways to combat your fear and connect in with the power of your angels.

Card 4:

Your guidance starts at 7:16 in the video below

Surrender Stress – Similar to card #3 stress is something else we all deal with and can also be helpful in times of getting you motivated and moving on a task, idea or your life purpose.  It is when you are experiencing chronic stress that its time to release it and find new and more helpful ways to cope with what you are experiencing in your life.  From personal experience I know what chronic stress can do to your body, I was under chronic stress for about 3 years after the diagnosis of my daughter with epilepsy and it had really been taking a toll on my body causing me to have injuries and also adrenal fatigue.

So I can tell you how important it is for you to surrender stress, to find other ways to ensure no matter what is happening you are not allowing the experience or circumstances to leave you in a place of stress 24/7.  Again like card #3 your angels are asking you to call on them, bring them in when you need support to cope with a difficult situation or experience, they love to be able to help you and can bring you such peace.

Let me know by commenting below how you deal with stress in your life and I can provide extra support and teach you new ways you may not of thought of or known about to help you in reducing your stress.

Rhythm of your breath

Can the Rhythm of your Breath Hold the Answers?

As you go about your day notice the inhale and the exhale of your breath in your body, notice how it happens automatically to your own rhythm.  No two persons breath rhythm is the same, some breathe deeper, some shallower, some faster and some slower.

As you start to notice your breath rhythm, really get to know it, what does it feel like on the in breath? what does it feel like on the out breath?  Noticing your whole body’s response, as you do this you will then know at times where you are out of rhythm and as you are out of rhythm, it is a sign you are out of alignment with the Universe.

Come back to your breath, always come back to your breath, it is your connection to YOU, connect to your light, connection to the Universe and connection to Source.

It sounds so simple but the first thing, we do as we enter our earthly vessel is take a breath and the last thing we do before we leave our early vessel is take our last BREATH!

The flow of life is as simple as the in and out breath as long as you go with the flow and stay in the flow, life will seem easy.  Simple, flowing and rhythmic.

Nature follows this process in each and every moment, take the ocean for example; notice a wave at the beach, you don’t see it holding back what is natural to it, it ebbs and flows, in and out and back and forth.  It doesn’t hold back, comparing itself to the wave next to it or hiding its natural beauty in fear it is not good enough, it just shines its natural gift of flowing in and out.

The same for you, why step out of your rhythm with life, breathing in and out with life, no holding back what is natural and what is divinely yours.  It is only when you step out of this rhythm, that life becomes hard, like pushing a rock up a hill.  When you rely on only your earthly vessel’s power you are limiting your potential.

Within the rhythm of life you are connected to source and source is infinite making you infinite, your possibilities are infinite.  As you flow with life, life flows with you.

Like a river flowing downstream, you flow downstream, as it turns you turn, as it stops, you stop always knowing it will flow again. Just like you know the sun will rise again, so will you.

The flow is inside of you, this beautiful current, flowing, ebbing and flowing, in and out.  Dance with life and life will dance with you. 

I offer private 1-1 sessions either in person locally on the Gold Coast or Online Worldwide, click here to book your initial call.

Ask Your Angels Episode 11

 

Your Guidance Revealed

Ask Your Angels Episode 11

Card 1:

 

Daily Practice – It takes practice and that is okay, don’t put huge expectations on yourself, give yourself the time to perfect your new hobby, habit or work task.  Archangel Gabriel is showing me a little baby just learning to walk, as she falls down she gets back up time and time again until she perfects the art of walking, this is the same for you, we tend to overestimate what we can get done in a day, yet underestimate what we can achieve in a year.

Allow yourself the time to get used to the newness of this task, don’t expect to know everything and be perfect at it right now, allow yourself to enjoy the journey of learning, not worrying so much about the outcome and being perfect.   I talk more about this in the video below, starting at 1:55.

 

Card 2:

Birth – This card really follows on from card number 1, all about newness and interesting since we are in the full moon phase, a time of releasing and getting ready for the new.  Now if you are like me and done with the baby rearing years this may freak  you out, but don’t worry it isn’t necessarily about a new baby.  It may be a new idea, or exciting project on the horizon, something that has been building within you for a while.  Your guidance is to know it is birthing within you and what it needs from you right now is patience and space, allowing it to come to fruition in its on time and in its own way.  Funnily enough similar to allowing a baby to grow within you for 9 months.

As hard as it can be do your best to release your expectations of what it should be or should look like and allow the universe to bring it to you in the best way possible for your highest good.  I share more in the video below, starting at 4:30.

Card 3:

Time Management – Well haven’t you been putting yourself on the back-burner, no more, its time to start prioritising yourself, allowing your needs to be served, sitting at the top of your to-do-list.  I know how hard this can be, especially as mums, kids tend to take up a bulk of our time, but I like to look at it as showing my girls what is important, so when they go out into the world, they know that putting themselves first isn’t just okay it is a necessity.

So this week your angels are guiding you to bring yourself back to the top of the list, allowing your needs to be met and knowing it is not just okay but essential to your overall health, in mind, body and spirit.   More guidance on the video below starting at 6:07

Card 4:

Journaling – one of my most favourite things to do and a big part of my healing journey, it is so essential to releasing the heaviness that you are carrying around.  Your angels are guiding you to start journaling, putting pen to paper and just allow the words to flow, there is no right or wrong way, just let what needs to come, come.   It is as simple as just writing what you are thinking, as you do that it takes away its power, as inside your mind thoughts can gain momentum and before you know it, you have come up with this disastrous outcome, that literally has no truth to it.

As the air hits your words, they lose their power and you will start to feel a sense of calm and inner peace and as that happens guidance has space to come through, supporting you in each and every moment.   Listen below to receive more guidance on Journaling, starting at 8:08
