The word angel means “messenger of God”. They are Divine beings who carry messages between the creator and created. Angels are energy, vibrating in the energy of pure divine love, working in alignment with the living Source within us. They know the truth of us as whole, complete and perfect and are always striving for the best for us. They wish to see us fulfil our deepest potential for happiness and good. They love us unconditionally and are non judgemental. Angels work with any religion, spiritual path or modern faith.
Energy is all there is. Even matter, as Einstein’s formula shows, is congealed energy. Energy exists as light, heat, sound, mass, moving objects, gravity, fuel, chemicals and electricity. Energy is everywhere. It is all around us. It is the most basic building block of life. Energy flows through everything and creates everything.
Energetic Healing is a branch of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s an umbrella term used for any therapy that works with the energy circuits in our physical or subtle bodies to regain balance and help our body’s innate healing mechanisms.
When we are healthy we are ‘at ease’. Disease (dis – ease) is the result of the body and its energy systems being out of balance. The body knows how to heal itself and with energetic healing we can work with the body’s energy into healing itself.

Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm. Fear is the Ego, removing you from love. It has no substance.

The moon, being the closest astronomical body to Earth, has a profound effect on us. It represents the feminine, emotional, creative and nurturing aspects of our lives. One complete cycle of the moon takes exactly 28 days to complete, radiating her energy to us in cycles of waxing and waning, bringing in and releasing, ebbing and flowing. Many cultures and people believe in following the cycles of the moon, working with this wonderful gift of nature, harnessing the different energetic influences at each of the stages.
For example, at the Full Moon, the energy is powerful and intense. This surge enables you to take action and is a perfect time for releasing something that no longer serves you; or letting go of something that you no longer need in your life; or an opportunity to let go of an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown.

An oracle taps into and reveals wisdom beyond our conscious minds. It helps gain access to spiritual knowledge and explore Universal truths. It takes us within, to what we deeply intuit or know as well as tapping into loving guidance from Beings from above and beyond.
Oracle cards are an ancient divination tool, a method used to seek knowledge of the unknown or receive guidance from deep within yourself or from your Angels and Guides. They act as the messenger, the middle-man between you and your guidance, relaying what you need to know about a situation or guidance on moving forward. They help you receive messages and provide a clearer pathway for guidance to reach you.
Oracle cards are decks of cards, each card having a different message. Most card decks have images and words and come with a book that provides a deeper meaning to each card although some decks may have just words or images or no book. It varies from deck to deck.
Their function is based on the Law of Attraction and Pythagorean numerology (which states that all numbers and images vibrate in a mathematically precise manner). Our energy attracts to the unique energy in each oracle card, thus the card that is needed is revealed as it is attracted to your energy in that moment.

With our soul being eternal, most of us have lived here on Earth many times before – in various cultures, locations and environments. A lifetime may be as short as a few minutes or over one hundred years. No matter the duration of a lifetime, it is very important on our soul journey.
Some of these past life experiences can play a part in the way you feel and behave today. Your soul decided to have certain experiences in this lifetime for many reasons, all leading to spiritual growth and awareness (enlightenment): you will have new experiences in this lifetime, as well as experiences similar to previous lifetimes that you want to refine (for example, you may find you are a ‘natural’ at something having done it before in a previous life) and possibly be drawn to people who you immediately feel a bond with having met them before in a previous life.
Experiences from past incarnations can also affect us greatly today. For example, the emotional/physical/mental energetic imprint from a previous life may cause you to have a particular preference for something, pull you to a certain location, give you certain expectations or have recurring themes in your life/lives. All designed to help you expand your sense of who you are as a soul.

In Jungian psychology, the Shadow or Shadow aspect is a part of the unconscious that holds the denied parts of self. Part of our soul’s purpose is to retrieve these hidden and lost parts of self and bring them to the light. This Shadow Work is a necessary part of our spiritual growth. In facing and embracing the Shadow, you will gain more freedom, come to know yourself more wholly and you will find that life experiences, opportunities, relationships and breakthroughs that you have not been able to reach will suddenly become available to you.
The Shadow Work Series – is a collection of blog posts exploring, facing and transforming the Shadow from the darkness into the light:
Our subconscious mind is the intermediary between our conscious and unconscious mind. Our subconscious mind knows no difference between what we imagine and what we experience in our physical world. It delivers whatever we request through our thoughts (both feelings and images). It holds our beliefs and these beliefs attract the events that happen in our lives. We will continue to attract similar events and experiences until we alter the way we think and feel or change our beliefs. By altering the way we think, we reprogram our subconscious mind which then attracts the new programming in our lives.
A powerful tool for reprogramming the subconscious mind is using the power of your imagination
