Do you Believe in Angels?

We have an abundance of stories and references to Angels in our Traditions and they are mentioned in many religious faiths and mythologies. With Christmas just around the corner, I would like share with you some of my understanding and my experience of Angelic Energies. An Angel is described as a supernatural Being or Spirit, often depicted as benevolent celestial Beings with magnificent bird-like wings, halo, robes and glowing light. They are considered to be Divine Messengers or Guardians who guide and protect us with the Archangels having the most significant roles; some of the best known are Gabriel, Michael, Raphael and Uriel amongst many more.

Angels - YHS November 2015
For most of my life, Angels were just part of our folklore and something magical in children’s stories and at Christmas. My life was my life and was my responsibility! It was not until I studied and started working with Energy Healing that I began to ask more questions, initially to clarify this feeling of there being more than just me present in a room (unsettling for a while) and then to consciously work with this apparent ‘Team of Helpers’, all of us focused on achieving the highest possible outcome!

My experience has never been of a particular named Angel talking to me like a person; it is more like a sensory awareness of a vast presence and not just one presence but an amalgamation of many speaking as One or sharing ideas until a common way forward is found, always supportive, always helping growth and understanding. This I grew to realise is my inner understanding about Love although it has not always been my Life’s outward experience – no judgement, no punishments, no degradation, just a wonderful nurturing feeling always there. And this is what Christmas is for me – a time to celebrate and experience this Love and bring it more fully into my Reality and those around me… Wishing this for all of you over this Festive Season!

What is your Criteria for Growth and your Life?

Your Intention will influence the fundamental nature of your Life’s Path.  Mine has evolved over time and especially since being at the frontline of healing energies with Kinesiology and Reiki.  From my experience, as much as we think our lives have this over-riding direction, when you want change and it doesn’t happen, what is that telling you? What do you do? Of course everything I talk about is subjective and you have to run it past your own inner guidance and filters but here are my views at this time…

I originally based all my healing work on Highest Good Intention and worked with that for a few years… Of course we all want what is best for ourselves, don’t we? Less pain, an easier ride, help from others miraculously appearing as needed… but what do you do if that is not your experience?

I got to the point in my life, about 6 years ago (2010 ish), that fundamental things did not change in my life, although I had grown within and was more focused, certain issues were persistently annoying or even getting worse! I felt like I was going round in circles… help from the outside world seemed to have disappeared whereas I had always had some sort of feeling that I was looked after… I knew that I had not imagined that and it had been real to me but what now when all my usual avenues of inner reassurance seemed to have dissipated?  I knew within that there was something else I needed to understand… all my journey so far had brought me to that point… and now I was ready for something new…

My discomfort had been growing about setting a Highest Good Intention…  what did that really mean?  Wasn’t Good and Bad an opinion, a judgement? And I believed then and still do that judgements are human behaviour, not God or Highest Love behaviour… so was Highest Love an Intention to use?  Again a process began which I am now very familiar with… what does such and such actually mean in energetic terms…?    And I began asking myself what am I really trying to achieve in my Life but, more than that, I was at a wall and my usual inner direction was not leading me through it!?  All my inner / higher guidance seemed to have deserted me but… I knew my past journey and I knew an answer would come from somewhere…

Up to this point, I had come through a very isolating phase in my Life and, as much as I could not understand why, I felt I was on a mission to understand more about how subtle energy works, how ‘holistic healing’ actually works – (historically that’s me!?).  If Highest Love was a new Intention, what did that mean? Surely I was using that anyway by focusing on the ‘best possible outcome’ but what did that mean?! Best for who? Me? The people dear to me? The World? How big an Energy could I work with and how to decide if that was ethical or appropriate…?  As usual I brainstormed, blew a few fuses in my circuitry until sanity resumed (a joke by the way ?! but it feels like this sometimes) … and I decided that what was BEST for every energy field, however big or small, whether within and without, was to be Empowered! And this has lead me on my journey to date…  This means that every energy is given a Personal Space to think for itself, gain understanding about the energies it is interacting with and then to decide for itself what to do…  it is not up to me to make the judgement for another, it is up to each of us to decide how we relate to ourselves and All that Is… being Empowered facilitates this process…

Immediately my healing work took on a new momentum… ‘Highest Way’ Intention began… What I found was that I became more impatient for faster healing… I was fed up with certain issues not getting healed!  I felt more empowered to do something about them… my understandings evolved and are still evolving… this new phase in my personal journey required me to face bigger issues… ask deeper questions… but I was able now to do that and manage my Self better!  Every step of the way I found answers… I felt safer to really tackle my deepest vulnerabilities… which I was and am really sick of seeing in my Life… still uncovering more to work on… but I now have a deeper reassurance in who I am and what we all have the potential to be!

Everything is Energy in some Form, I know that now more than ever.  We can learn to manage our energies and transform ourselves and the World… it just takes Intention and the Willingness and Tenacity to walk your Path.

You choose your Intention deep within but realise that we have all inherited certain Patterns individually, as families, as communities and as humans, some very hard-wired patterns and however much you internally intend something, these Patterns may be what play out in your Life!  It is a very complex picture and I am still learning as we all are… there is no wrong or right but achieving Win-Win is my criteria for my personal growth and for the healing work I do in the World.  There is the Potential in Humanity for there to be no losers… just Win-Win all the way… the more Empowered we all are, the quicker change can happen, the more of our subtle energetic database can be processed…

Relationship Issues? Maybe it’s Your Conflicting YIN & YANG?!

It is Springtime and there is a feeling in the air of ‘new beginnings’, refreshing the ‘old’, trying something new, cleaning and decluttering; Nature is full of new growth from baby lambs and birds to new leaves and blossoms. This has got me thinking about Yin and Yang, about the attraction between the feminine and the masculine, about the desire to create something new…

yin-yang

Much of my healing work is about relationships, not just between men and women but also between ideas we have about the world and about ourselves. Ill health or relationship difficulties can arise when our beliefs, understandings, thoughts and/or feelings do not agree or how they relate is unclear.

The idea of Yin and Yang is described beautifully in the Tao Te Ching (insert), ancient Classic Chinese Writings dating back to the 6th Century BC, which underpin many ideas in various Eastern Philosophies and have also become very popular in our own culture.

The text talks of ‘the One’, the idea of Wholeness and a Higher Intent driving our existence and that by embodying the Yin (feminine) and Yang (masculine) qualities in ‘ten thousand’ different ways we create ‘forms’ – ideas, activity, aspirations… who we are… our lives. It also talks about ‘achieving harmony’ through ‘Union’, which refers to being able to easily use your own masculine and feminine qualities as needed (whether you are a man or a woman), being empowered enough to be logical, active, hot (passionate) alongside being intuitive and passive (supporting and listening); it is also relevant to being able to create harmonious relationships with others. So can men and women work in harmony with each other? Are men and women treated as equals? Can women be ‘yang’ and men not be threatened and vice versa? Can a woman or a man be ‘passive’ without being seen as ‘weak’ or ‘of no value’? This is still a global work-in-progress obviously! We are all still learning how to empower and harmonise our own Yin and Yang qualities and to value and encourage that in others too. Your Life will show you the qualities you need to develop to achieve harmony… become aware of repetitive events or unresolved issues… try different tactics… become Whole 🙂

Metaphysical Loops

Do you lose focus or get distracted easily? Experience annoyingly repetitive life events or behaviour? Life gets in the way? Have you found yourself spending more than your budget and are in debt again? Ended up in yet another ‘bad relationship’ or just ‘lost interest’? Past events keep coming to mind and prevent you moving forward in your life? Your circumstances just don’t change however much you want them to or however many self-help books or courses you study? Sometimes ‘Life’ just seems to ‘happen’ whatever you try or however you behave? Have you ever asked the questions ‘Why is this happening AGAIN?’ or ‘Why can’t I be bothered when this is really important to me?’… What you are experiencing is a Metaphysical Loop…

Loops - YHS Aug 2014

“Your Thoughts Create Your Reality” is a well-used phrase in all positive-thinking approaches to achieving your goals and improving all aspects of health but what does this mean? Metaphysical Sciences study the behaviour of sub-atomic particles where the Laws of Traditional Physics do not apply and Quantum Mechanics is used instead and it is this area of Science which is slowly understanding how our Thoughts interact with our surroundings. It has been seen in metaphysical experiments with such particles that just the Thoughts of the Observer influence the outcome and even that particles on opposite sides of the World seem linked in their responses, both of which suggest unseen communications happening at a quantum level. All holistic philosophies are based on this unseen web of Thoughts and quantum energy hidden within the ‘Seen World’. To me, intuition (our inner dialogue) describes how we decypher this subtle/quantum communication and is an innate ability we all have the potential to develop and is necessary if you want to step beyond your Metaphysical Loops.

But what are METAPHYSICAL LOOPS?

They are Circuits of Thought at the sub-atomic level, they are the patterns of behaviour that reside in your Subconscious and deeper Superconscious held within the cells of your body. They provide a boundary to your Life which you may naturally grow beyond (‘Life happens’) or which you can choose to push against, and the deeper the circuit the more challenging the journey out of the Loop, psychologically and/or physically. Becoming aware of your Life Loops starts the process of reorganising how your brain maps them and you will know when you are growing beyond a Loop because you will naturally become aware of other options available to you via the Law of Attraction (written May 2013) – other ways to behave or new opportunities to follow. Don’t give up if you want change, every Loop can be surpassed <3

Today… Why Not You?

“Why Not You?

Today, many will awaken with a fresh sense of inspiration. Why not you?
Today, many will open their eyes to the beauty that surrounds them. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to leave the ghost of yesterday behind and seize the immeasurable power of today. Why not you?
Today, many will break through the barriers of the past by looking at the blessings of the present. Why not you?
Today, for many the burden of self doubt and insecurity will be lifted by the security and confidence of empowerment. Why not you?
Today, many will rise above their believed limitations and make contact with their powerful innate strength. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to live in such a manner that they will be a positive role model for their children. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to free themselves from the personal imprisonment of their bad habits. Why not you?
Today, many will choose to live free of conditions and rules governing their own happiness. Why not you?
Today, many will find abundance in simplicity. Why not you?
Today, many will be confronted by difficult moral choices and they will choose to do what is right instead of what is beneficial. Why not you?
Today, many will decide to no longer sit back with a victim mentality, but to take charge of their lives and make positive changes. Why not you?
Today, many will take the action necessary to make a difference. Why not you?
Today, many will make the commitment to be a better mother, father, son, daughter, student, teacher, worker, boss, brother, sister, & so much more. Why not you?
Today is a new day! Many will seize this day. Many will live it to the fullest.
Why not you?”

Stepping Outside your Comfort Zone? Exhilarated or Frightened?

We all endeavour to have a Comfort Zone in which we feel safe, comfortable and in control. We organise our daily routines based on this; it affects our behaviour, our relationships, our aspirations. We have all at some point however also stepped beyond its boundary and experienced or learnt something new – your Comfort Zone was updated and became your new reference for further new experiences. This step outside of familiarity is in fact how our brains are stimulated to grow and develop, how new neural pathways (the brain’s wiring) are created and how we become the people we are and who we want to be. Each of us is unique; each of our brains is wired in a unique way based not only on the facts of our own personal experiences but also on those we inherit and even more importantly on our perceptions of each. Why is it however easier for some to be exhilarated by ‘new’, whilst for others it is frightening? As usual it is not a simple answer and is multi-faceted so where to start…

Feeling Uncomfortable? How Much?

Think of a situation where you felt uncomfortable, score it 1-10 (see pic). Generally, if a low score, it is probable that you will grow from it and expand your Zone. If however it was a high score, it is probable that it caused your Zone to contract limiting future events. But that is not the whole story…

What Feels Uncomfortable? Your Mind, Body or Spirit?

This question brings in the multi-dimensional and holistic nature of who we are. The original influence on our Comfort Zone was about the physical safety of early mankind in its ‘wild’ environment ie. Safety of the Physical Body and of course, this is still of primary importance. As our brains have developed in their complexity so too has the Mind’s ability to be fearful and self-protective and where we have experienced many frightening or harmful events, it will be your Spirit that is distressed. Where your score is very high, all will be part of the story, each with their own Comfort Zone, each affecting your responses to your life experiences, sabotaging or reinforcing each other. Helping one in isolation may provide short-term relief but for complete healing all aspects need to be considered – this is the holistic approach 🙂
