Total Reset – Fifth Dimensional Sojourns

You may have noticed that I have added some new pages to this website but I have not actually updated on the general blog for a few weeks. I am very much going through a time of introspection, with so much happening on my internal landscape, but at times lacking the words or the energy to bring it forth into writing and share it with readers of my blog.

I am now at a ‘pause point’ – a time to stop, rest and integrate the energies that have been building up for me in recent weeks – so it is an ideal time to take stock and share.

So much has happened internally that I am struggling to remember every detail at this point to record it down. Hence, I tend to record only the truly key definining moments; the moments in which everything shifts forever. As regular readers may know, I have spent a lot of time in recent weeks cleansing, clearing, processing, and letting go of energies, beliefs, fears and paradigms which no longer serve me. However, as much as I felt things shift and leave me, and lighter, brighter energies coming in, I was still very much on an up-and-down rollercoaster ride where my energy would feel light and loving for days and then dip back down furiously into fear, negative self-talk and feeling like nothing is changing. I would hazard a guess that a lot of people walking a spiritual path have felt like that at times in the period of time since the winter solstice and possibly even beyond.

Once I recognised this pattern, things began to happen that would shift my experience of the world forever – things both subtle and momentous, simultaneously, in nature.

Signs and synchronicities began to build infinitely, for one thing. I have had reconnections with old friends and soul sisters who have been part of my journey before and left for a time. I have had insights from reading coinciding at just the right moment in my journey to answer deep and burning questions. I have had amazing readings which have confirmed certain things I believe that are almost unbelievable. Step by step, this has reduced the endless barrage of questions which dance through my mind. Many of them received their final answer. My inner voice – previously known as my ego and I will explain this more in a short while – was beginning to submit to silence. My self-talk was shifting from negative and repetitive, to joyful and loving and bringing forth new insights. I was beginning to feel like I was emerging into the light, after being submerged in confusion, extremes, an uncontrollable ocean of emotion for a whole cycle of my life, spanning years. I was starting to step into a state of surrender to the will of my higher self, and faith in the universe to manifest everything I need for my highest good.

Quite unexpectedly, I was drawn to watch a video which was posted in a Facebook group I recently joined. The video was by a spiritual teacher named Matt Kahn – you can look him up on his YouTube channel “True Divine Nature” if you feel drawn to do so. I am not going to paraphrase his teachings, but suffice to say that are really quite revolutionary. And for anyone who feels ‘stuck’ in the same repeating pattern and unable to transcend it to reach a higher state of consciousness, joy, vibration, happiness and fulfilment, I recommend you watch some of his videos with my whole heart. In short, he has made me look at my spiritual practice in a new way; that subtle shifts in thought patterns and the way I respond to life could change everything; that I didn’t need to have long and convoluted daily spiritual routines; that there IS indeed a way to be ‘in flow’ and to let things unfold naturally. The synchronicity of this is profound – that it came alongside my surrender to and faith in the universe, or God – whatever name you choose to call the living energy force and flow of love that permeates everything, including ourselves, and makes everything one.

Learning to celebrate life and all that arises, to love it, bless it, treasure it and see that it is all purposeful, it is all perfect and it is all good, I then had the fortune to spend the weekend with a dear friend, watching a wonderful band (The Script) in concert as well as having some amazing discussions – a mixture of the deep and esoteric and the not-so-deep and everyday life – for which I am truly grateful. The weekend was pivotal for me, in more ways than one. I realised I was beginning to bring through an inner wisdom and an inner source of power in my interactions – aligning with my higher self. I saw, for the first time, the path of my life opening up before me in miraculous ways and in infinite streams – how it would look in different dimensions of reality. I understood for the first time that I can step between the dimensions, depending on the vibration I emanate the most. I realised that I was beginning to anchor fifth dimensional consciousness. I’m sure my friend would agree. I also realised, from something the singer in the band said to the crowd, and from the fact that I had felt tired beyond belief and not so much like attending a concert earlier in the evening, that taking the opportunity to have ‘real’ experiences is so important. Our technology is precious indeed, because it allows us to connect with souls we resonate with all over the world, and makes it possible to find soulmates and soul family no matter how globally scattered we are; however, unlike our ancestors of Atlantis and other civilisations, it is important that we learn this time that it is not everything; that our experiences of connecting with others physically is so very important too. That is where the true feeling of joy, flow, harmony, peace and love arises. The experiences took on a new sense of magnitude when they also unleashed some very deep feelings of old wounds – deja vu from the concert experience brought this forth – and the way I responded to that differed greatly to how it may have done in the past. Instead of turning inwardly into my shell and wondering ‘why me’ I embraced and celebrated old sadness, old wound, old trauma, as if they were old friends. One of Matt Kahn’s most profound ideas for me (up to now) has been that when you are in emotional pain, you are healing in that moment; it is not something that requires action in terms of finding a path to that healing; it simply is. So I sat with it, and let it be, and let it come forth in me, in order to heal it. And realised how powerful a being I am, how powerful we all are as spiritual beings. That our choice of how to respond to emotions as they arise in the moment literally changes the course of our destiny, in a flash, in a heartbeat. That this was the key to manifesting the loving reality we all wish for in our heart of hearts.


The Script at Manchester Arena

What followed this was even more extraordinary. I have a wonderful friend and soul sister who I am working together with at the moment on our spiritual growth. Often our ‘conversations’ (online) lead to quite catalystic insights and experiences at the present time. While discussing some of the new paradigms we were welcoming in and the new energies we were anchoring, the master number 000 came up. We stopped and paused a minute with the realisation of that. It was momentous. Neither of us had ever aligned with that number before, indeed I don’t remember seeing it listed along with master number explanations when I have read about this before. We both agreed that it was a point of clarity, a zero point; a moment of total and complete reset, plunging into true surrender and faith. Earlier that evening, I had once again asked the universe for signs that I was on the right path, spiritually speaking and for my manifestations – I have been in the habit of this for quite some time. If the 000 wasn’t sign enough, I received two further signs of seeing rainbows in odd places (on-screen) and sudden shivers of joy coursing through my physical body (which I took to be a shift in vibration or a tangible feeling of love and connection). Then I heard the clearest of voices in my head: “Can we stop sending you signs now, and actually work on what you want to manifest?” The voice was kind, with a touch of amusement to it; not laughing at me, but definitely amused by my way of going about things, to the point that I laughed too, and replied telepathically, “Absolutely. Please do work on my actual manifestations, rather than showing me signs that I am making the right choices, and progressing towards them. I trust you to manifest the most joyous of futures for me.” While that was subtle as a change in perspective, I realised it was such an incredible shift, because for many years, I have been manifesting more and more signs that what I want is correct for my soul and for the highest good of all, instead of manifesting my dreams themselves into reality.

A word, now, about the inner voice. For many years, as many of us do, I have called this inner voice ego. One of the realisations, however, that I have had in the last few weeks, is that ego is not separate from me, and ego is not a word I especially resonate with any more. It is the inner part of me, from which derives my self-talk, which can sometimes be negative due to old patterns and experiences, from which derives my emotional reactions to events that arise in my life. It is the inner part I am mostly connected with as it is the nearest part to my physical human body and experience; however, it is also the door and the key to my soul, my higher self, my Divine self, my connection to the Divine. I have realised I need to be more loving towards this voice, as it is only part of me, and to some extent is part of me that may not feel listened to, that may feel somewhat misunderstood. I resolve here and now to only be loving towards my inner voice, to listen to it, but to have the wisdom to know which parts of its talk come from old programmes and patterns and which parts come from the higher self. Which is easy, because the parts that come from the higher self have a certain tone, clarity and sense of authority about them. The parts that come from old programmes and patterns tend to ‘ramble’ and be repetitive.

Following on from my revelation that I have been manifesting signs of my dreams coming true in the future, rather than manifesting my actual dreams, for more years than I care to count, during a further conversation I was, in quite an animated way, knocking myself out (for want of a better term) speaking my manifestations clearly to the universe, celebrating my desires and dreams coming into reality, claiming my power, and overflowing with love and joy and gratitude for being in that moment. The message I sent to my trusted friend full of these carefully-chosen yet flowing words of pure love and unbridled joy came up in red in the messenger box as having failed to send. In fact, my whole internet connection went off for a good ten minutes. My first inner reaction was with negative self-talk – the usual way I would respond, with frustration, indignation, but also taking it as a negative portent or the universe stopping me in my tracks – talk I had heard a thousand times: “That happened because you’re not meant to manifest that; that is because you can’t have what you’re asking for – it’s impossible, you’re not good enough; it’s happened because it’s not meant to be.” Remembering the recent teachings I had assimilated, however, my second reaction was to reply to this voice: “Thank you for your insight. I have heard this many times before; if it is true, please, tell me more! I celebrate what you have to say. Come on and hit me with it – tell me everything you have to say to about this. I can take it! I welcome it!” And the voice went silent. And I understood that was not the true reason it had happened. The next, very clear words came from my inner voice: “I just flipped the universe’s trip switch.”

In other words, with my joyous, trusting, loving, blissful, heart-centred manifestation statement of that which I had previously believed (or talked myself into believing) I was unworthy of, undeserving of, that which I had previously secretly believed was impossible no matter how I spoke of it on the surface, had flipped those old beliefs and limitations on their head. I had literally stepped into a different dimension, where all is possible, and it is completely inevitable that my highest dreams will manifest and materialise. A different dimension where there is only love, peace, harmony, bliss, every vibration and level of love imaginable. A different dimension where we are tuned in to our loving and wise higher selves, rather than a negative narrative of self-talk well-practised and over-rehearsed from years of battling with third dimensional paradigms. The fifth dimension.

Everything is possible, and since that moment I have seen the truth of this. I see now that all my dreams are possible, inevitable, and with me now, anchored in my heart, in my soul, in my reality and simply being worked out for the highest good by the universe, God, my soul’s spiritual team of angels and guides, including my very own higher self.

Since then I have been quite exhausted, and knowing I am in much need of rest, hence my having time to share this with you this weekend during a long lie-in – because of the shifts made. At the same time, I am maintaining a level of vibration where I feel peaceful and in flow, no matter what arises. Things no longer feel like a rush; I see the beauty of perfect Divine timing. And I am open to whatever comes, knowing I am attracting only my highest good to me, and knowing I have the tools and the capacity for loving responses within my soul to handle anything that comes my way.

Synchronicity, Serendipity and Energetic Shifts

A truly amazing and very unexpected experience manifested last night, and I feel guided to share it, but I was unsure where to place it, as it ties in with several aspects of my spiritual path, some of which I usually include in the pages sections. However, I think the main message for others here is about trust, faith, healing, and how to follow synchronicities to the next step on the path; therefore, I am sharing it as a regular post and hoping it will reach those it is meant to resonate with.

For the last week or so, very little has happened on my spiritual path. I am no stranger to plateaus – sometimes they can go on for months, even years. Still, because so much has happened for me recently, the lack of forward movement made me feel a little flat.

I am currently reading Angel Prayers by Kyle Gray which is a wonderful book, very pleasant to read and easy to understand, yet showing the subtle difference in the ways prayer can be worded. The main idea is to word the prayers positively, and as if you are giving thanks for what has already happened, rather than placing your desired manifestations in the future, which can, conversely, just attract more waiting for a desired future. I thoroughly recommend this book for anyone, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey. Kyle Gray has a unique talent in reaching a great number of souls all with one fell swoop, I feel, and if you have been drawn to read this blog entry today then it may be as relevant for you as it currently is for me.

The book inspired me to say a number of positive prayers of that nature, including asking for a miracle to help me return fully to peace and joy in my heart; and to write in my new spiritual journal / Book of Shadows about my intentions for a daily practice first thing in the morning, also involving using positively worded prayer and starting the day with gratitude, too. It also drew my attention to an archangel who has only recently come into the human/angel sphere of interaction, Archangel Orion, as I had drawn his card out of Kyle’s corresponding Angel Prayers oracle deck on the previous day. I felt drawn to working with this magical archangel.

Most evenings, I spend some time listening to music, watching spiritual information on YouTube, and perhaps doing a guided meditation or two. Last night I had chosen to listen to a little series of spiritual information videos about energy shifts occurring and how to anchor and harmonise them in the human body. While doing this, I closed my eyes, and it became almost a meditative experience, though I had not particularly intended this. This was when Archangel Orion came in – it was first an awareness, then a feeling, then an image of an angel’s face and shoulders, his face half turned into the shadow and half into the light, creating mysterious patterns and symbols in his energy field. This is a very similar look to the oracle card, too. He didn’t speak exactly, because archangels tend to convey ideas telepathically. But the answer came, somehow, “I am your miracle.”

This was followed by him touching my heart and the top of my crown chakra, which I felt as a physical sensation. There was then a popping or bursting open sensation which was very sudden, in the area around the back of and above my crown chakra. I am not sure if another chakra was being activated, cleared or healed. With this I saw two superimposed golden rings which had multi-coloured little lights laced periodically through them. I have heard of a chakra within the twelve-chakra system near the base of the skull and I wondered if it was to do with that, but I still don’t know for sure.


I realised I hadn’t heard half of the information, but I didn’t think it mattered – I felt my prayer had been answered by this angelic healing and presence. I didn’t realise, though, straight away, that it had caused a huge internal shift. An internal, or astral, or telepathic conversation began to unfold in my head – however you wish to label it – with the spirit of my twin flame. I began to doubt that there was anything to it, telling myself it was just my imagination. Discernment is, after all, important. The conversation continued to unfold regardless. The responses just “came”. It was all about trust and further awakenings, forward movement on the path; I am not going to share the exact details. I was still browsing Facebook and YouTube at the time, and I saw a series of master numbers that seemed significant – 222, 555, 2225, then 2252, then 2522. (Master numbers, or angel numbers, can appear on clocks, posts, receipts, video/audio counters, etc). That very specific pattern was significant, I am sure. Not only are master numbers activation codes, they are synchronistic signs as well. The 222, for me, is all about soul connections, universal love and the twin flame reunion; the 555 is all about fifth dimensional healing, awareness and connection with the angelic. I still felt the presence of Archangel Orion too.

You would think this was enough in terms of signs of shifts and movements and serendipity and miracles and healing…but shortly after I saw the final number in the sequence, the 2522 (I did not see 5222, but I am interested to see if it manifests after the fact as a sort of ‘full stop’), I began to feel incredibly hot. I am talking about blazing and sudden heat, felt first at the crown chakra and coming down through my whole system, flooding my being. I could not carry on with what I was doing, and I had to stop and take deep breaths; my heart raced. When I surrendered myself to the fire within, it seemed to pass. This was not something medical – I was not ill, I was conscious the whole time, I was very aware that it was more of a spiritual experience, and yet it took me quite by surprise. Talking to a friend in the aftermath, who also has psychic abilities, she felt it was a “download” from this archangel. Well, we shall certainly see, in the days and weeks to come. I have had “downloads” of information from the angelic realm before, in other forms, often seeing what I call fire letters, blazed into the roof or the wall or the ether of the room I am in when the experience comes. The information then comes through in channelled chunks in the months to follow. Rather than fire letters exterior to me, this time, the fire came straight into my soul. I am definitely interested to see what intuitions, knowledge, claircognizance and developments come next. I am not sure Archangel Orion is quite done with me yet, either.


In the process of working through a lot of cleansing and clearing of old templates at the moment, I had rambling dreams following the experience that may have been even more flushing out of old self-limiting beliefs and patterns. I long for lucidity to come back to my dreams, but last night I was simply exhausted and glad to find I slept like a log.

I wanted to share this from a number of angles, really. I hope if you were drawn to read this, you are inspired and have enjoyed reading about the experience in itself. I also hope you “get” the morals or the lessons behind it. Firstly, that miracles can come in a variety of ways. I am not sure what I was expecting when I asked for a healing miracle. However, I am very happy with the result, though it really caught me off guard! Secondly, that when we pray with an open mind, an open heart and positive wording and intentions, synchronicity does unfold. Thirdly, that synchronicity is a series of events…it snowballs. This is the confirmation that you are indeed being sent signs or given experiences by the universe for your highest good; the confirmation that it is real, though it may be experienced primarily in the etheric and astral realms. Physical coincidences such as the drawing of an oracle card or the presentation of master numbers usually come in repetitions of at least three, and confirm that the metaphysical, meditative experience they are accompanying are true, real and very significant. Finally, the angels are swift. When we ask for their help, it comes and it comes fast, whether we are prepared for it or not. Remember, too, that they see from a higher perspective – no matter what our conscious brains are thinking and creating, they can see if there are other possibilities, even better outcomes, or ways of answering our prayer that we hadn’t even conceived of. It’s the same with wishes, intentions and cosmic orders, too – calling in our angel guides really elevates the process and the outcome can even exceed our expectation.

Why not try it today? Chances are, if you’ve been drawn to read this post, there is meaning in it for you, too. That’s what serendipity is all about! Chancing upon the information or inspiration you need in any particular moment. In fact, it could even be the case that for some of you out there reading this, this is actually your answer, reply or solution to a prayer or wish already made.

Try saying a positive prayer about something you truly wish to manifest for you right now. Make sure it’s a positive intention that won’t affect anyone else adversely, and doesn’t compromise another person’s free will. So, for example, if you wish for a financial boost, remember the universe is abundant, there is plenty for everyone, and you will not be taking away from anyone else in asking for help with your cash flow. As another example, if you wish for a new relationship, try not to name a specific person, but ask for a wonderful and loving relationship that is for your highest good. If you are not sure what to ask for, do what I did and simply ask for a miracle, but tie it in to a feeling – for example, a miracle that will fill my heart with love, joy, bliss, abundance, courage, strength, happiness, peace, harmony, or any other positive quality you desire. Word it as if it has already happened, for example: “Thank you, Angels, for bringing me my miracle, which fills my heart now with peace and joy.” Then, trust that the angels and the universe are working on it, and let go. Don’t be surprised when something completely unexpected, but related to your intention, happens, either later that day or in a short space of time – but remember, intend to be open to an answer in whatever form it takes, and remember that you may not even have thought of that possible answer yet. Angels truly do work in mysterious ways.

DAD 222 and Other Signs!

I am going to try and get in the discipline of writing at least one new post or page per week, and this week has not disappointed in terms of inspiration for a post this weekend.

I talk a lot about speaking to your angels and guides to request help with specific areas of your life; I also talk a lot about watching for the ‘signs’ they give you afterwards which act as guiding lights to nudge you the next small step forward on your path. It’s the same principle with prayer; after praying, the answers from the Universe, Source or God – however you call the supreme LOVE energy of All-That-Is – come in similar subtle ways, which humans in their third dimensional consciousness are not always geared up to notice or receive. I have had many people come to me over the years and say their angels, or God, have not listened to their prayers and requests, when this is not the case. Some requests take some time to process, and signs are sent in the meantime. A case in point happened this weekend which can help me illustrate this.

So much is coming through and happening for me, spiritually speaking, at the moment. This has been the case since the reported energy shifts of Winter Solstice 2014 – very rapid acceleration for me and a number of friends who have, like me, been on a spiritual path for a long time and are now operating more at fourth and fifth dimensional levels in their ability to notice, see, hear, know and feel new ideas, knowledge and truth. I have particularly received a lot of information regarding my soul connections, past lives and nudges towards healing and cleansing, balancing and clearing, then more healing and cleansing. As are many spiritual folk at this time, I am stripping away layers and layers of old templates, patterning, and beliefs which no longer serve me. It is a somewhat rocky road, though I am grateful to be negotiating it, as I know it is for my highest good and for the highest good of all souls who are connected with me. Nevertheless, I need support, reassurance and the odd thumbs-up from someone, somewhere, to make the road that little bit smoother…as we all do, whatever shape and form our current path is taking.

Thursday was the 22nd of the month, which is usually a high power date for me. One or two interesting and blissful things occurred in meditation for me that night, though I was really expecting something a little more concrete in terms of a sign from the Universe and some guidance for my path going ahead that I knew I was still missing, from recent readings and intuitions by myself and some of those people I call my soul sisters. One thing I have been struggling with is being clear about my path, because clarity is a vibration I feel has not been present in my life for some time. My struggle here is that I was raised Christian and feel a strong affinity with Christ still (in fact I do work with Christ as an Ascended Master), yet I am pulled repeatedly to the Pagan path, the path of reverence for nature, magic, awe, wonder and personal responsibility. Hence, for a number of years, I have thought of myself as Interfaith and this is how I have labelled myself and all the spiritual work I have done.

I had a trip out yesterday to a wonderful place I love to go. It is called Bygone Times and is something of a second-hand emporium of treasures. I have found unusual toys and out-of-print books for my children there, as well as many spiritual tools and books, including crystals. I also simply love its energy. The mill building it sits inside is reputed to be haunted, though the energy there is calm and loving; I am not fearful of it at all, even in the darkest and chilliest corners. I feel the veil is thin there, so it’s somewhat easier to connect in with my spiritual guidance and have a dialogue with my guides in my mind whilst I am there. If anyone in the North-West England region would like to visit, it’s in Eccleston in Chorley and has a website so you can easily find directions. In any case, on this occasion I had just fancied going for awhile, and opportunity arose this weekend childcare-wise. I didn’t have a shopping list in mind, but I felt it was going to be a good day, and I felt there was a purpose to going. I had been drawn to an amethyst diffuser there on my previous visit and, since I had had a lot of expense at the time I decided not to buy it, to wait and see if it was still there the next time and think about acquiring it then.

The first sign came on the way – I took a wrong turn, which I had never done before and this led me to a yard where numerous vehicles were parked. The one directly in front of me as I did a three-point turn to right myself read, DAD 222. Now my Dad passed over to spirit in 2010, and from time to time he has sent me signs to show he still watches over me and guides me. One of the common ones is the tune I chose for his funeral, Pachelbel’s Canon in D. For me, this was a clear and blatant sign from him. I had been looking for guidance, and he was showing me that he was going to guide me to an answer on that particular day. 222 is one of the master numbers – I happen to see them a lot, as do many people, and the 222 is the most common one for me, which also links to self-love and the heart chakra, soulmates and twin flames, the paradox of duality and unity consciousness. In case you, too, see master numbers (which you can see in double, triple or quadrupal digits, on clocks, registration numbers, receipt or ticket numbers, and many other places), here is a brief list of their meanings as I discern them to be at this time. This is not exhaustive and other websites may tell you different meanings, so think about what resonates for you.

Basic Master Number Listing

11, 111 or 11:11 – The Gates of Metatron. Ascension and spiritual growth. DNA activation code for spiritual awakening. A nudge towards unity consciousness. A nudge towards working with angels. A good omen.

22, 222 or 22:22 – Opening, healing, balancing of the heart chakra and higher heart chakra. A nudge towards self-love and self-care. The path of love, soul connections, important nudges on the path regarding soulmates and twin flames. Resolving the paradox of duality and unity consciousness.

33 or 333 – Grounding, earthing, balancing. Anchored in third dimensional reality. A call to earth healing.

44 or 444 – Fourth dimensional activation. The opening of higher chakras. An angel number and a sign that your abilities to tune in and listen to your angels and guides are strengthening. A sign that answers are coming to you in your dreams.

55 or 555 – Fifth dimensional activation. Development of the ‘clairs’ – clairvoyance (sight), clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (feeling), claircognizance (knowing), clairalience (smelling), and development of other gifts and talents such as mediumship, channelling and psychic ablities. A connection with spirit or a sign from a loved one in spirit.

66 or 666 – NOT an ‘evil’ number. I see this as a healing number, a number of completion of cycles and balance. Balance as in that between light and dark or love and fear. Awareness that we need both the dark and the light to become whole; we need both love and fear to learn and grow as souls. Conquering fear and moving more into a state of love. Magick afoot.

77 or 777 – The number of the seventh dimension or ‘seventh heaven’ where angels naturally reside. Going higher spiritually – reaching a pinnacle you have never yet reached in terms of spiritual understanding. A major achievement in life. A spiritual thumbs-up. Great luck, fortune and serendipity – a sign to look out for snowballing synchronicities and coincidences.

88 or 888 – A number of abundance, flow, financial luck, prosperity. This is also linked to the infinity symbol. A reminder that our soul never dies and that love is forever. A nudge to look into past lives and the ‘wider’ life of the soul, including its source. Better times are coming.

99 or 999 (or 911) – Again, NOT a bad omen, as I once thought it was earlier in my path due to its association with the emergency services. It CAN indicate a major happening in life, which could be positive OR negative – remember in fact every experience has both, because every experience is a learning and growth experience. It is also an ascension signal, a sign that the soul is close to finding full balance, truth, harmony and peace.

In recent years, the ‘mixed’ master numbers have also started appearing to people on a spiritual path; these include 10:10, 12:12, 21:21, 22:20, 22:02, 22:12, and other variants. These are signs of multidimensional activations up to and including the twelfth chakra and the twelve dimensions. They are often signs to look out for the signs, or that your prayers are being heard, or that your endeavours towards spiritual growth are going well; encouragement from those in the higher realms. They are likely to have specific meanings as individual numbers, which I am still puzzling out from my own experience.

______________________________________________________ xxx

Now after that little aside, back to my story. So, as I walked around this place, the first thing I did was asked to handle the amethyst diffuser. An amazing peace emanated from it. I already had a rose quartz diffuser and a clear quartz diffuser, acquired some years ago and gifts from my parents when Dad was still alive. This diffuser feels like it completes the set; it feels like a key, or a missing piece. I knew this was mine and I had to claim it. (I will post more about diffusers and their use another time for anyone who’s interested.)


In the afternoon, the spiritual energies rose up a notch. Song lyrics were the main thing, absolutely packed full of messages about reuniting, unity, unconditional love in general: this won’t make sense to you but they are confirmation to me that I’m on the right path. I also kept seeing the word LOVE and the word DREAM and related quotes. This in itself is not unusual; there is a lot of artwork for the home and quite a lot of spiritual and esoteric items packed into the place. I discovered a new stall which was not there on my previous visit, which sold a lot of magical and spiritual items, many of them quite Pagan-specific altar pieces. A beautiful angel statue with gold-glittered wings holding a heart against her heart drew me straight away; even though I had not been planning on collecting a basketful of items, I was grateful that abundance is with me at this time in my life and I could pick her up and take her home. It felt like she was just waiting there for me.


I was also drawn to a number of Anne Stokes artwork items and in particular a journal with a faery picture. I have been extremely drawn to faeries of late without knowing why. One of my soul sisters, who has been helping me figure out my next step, has been talking to me about my path and about keeping a book of shadows or similar. Now I have done this before, in the past, but have not put anything in it for a number of years, because as I previously explained I could never reconcile my deep affinity with Christ with my more Pagan-based beliefs and rituals. Being drawn to this journal seemed like a sign to start a new one. Then I realised: I am being guided to set up a new altar; I am collecting altar pieces.

Like other practices, keeping a spiritual altar is something that I have let go to some extent since having my daughter. There has not seemed to be enough space in the house somehow and while I have kept all my spiritual tools, crystals, oracle cards and the like safe and cared for them, they have been kept in a few places randomly around the bedrooms, and not concentrated in one area. Now keeping a spiritual altar, I feel, is quite important if you have a daily practice. Many people like to do their daily spiritual practice, be it prayer, devotion, meditation, rituals, or spells, in a set place which is concentrated with spiritual energy. In our house, fitting everything in at present can be a bit of a jigsaw puzzle, and I haven’t always been able to do that, because I have often had altars in the smallest of the upstairs rooms where there isn’t a lot of room to set things out, have a computer or CD player set up, and so on. However, it is still important, because that altar is an anchor, a grounding tool. It grounds the spiritual energy which is emanated through that daily practice, and the transmitting tools, in particular crystals, laid out on it, also send out the energy very clearly and powerfully to those people or places or the earth itself, which you intend it for. I have been doing a new daily practice since Christmas time, which I will discuss in detail another time, without having had an altar to anchor, store, transmit and amplify the energies. As a result, I have had burnout – I have literally ‘crashed and burned’ – several times, and even been physically ill while trying to process healing energies.

By way of confirmation, straight after I had that sudden intuition that I was there to gather the final few missing pieces for my new and wonderful altar, I noticed a flurry of items bearing the word Dad or Daddy. A spiritual enthusiastic nod from my father in spirit. Yes, you got it! That’s what I want you to do. I also very much saw the items as gifts, from those who guide me in the spiritual dimensions; yes, I paid for them, but they had already been chosen for me; they had been placed directly in my path for me to discover. A little later, I also found a deck of oracle cards I had never before really thought about acquiring; intrigued by all the signs and synchronicities of the day, I pulled a few cards for myself and the same messages were coming out: Heart chakra, Healing, Listen, Reward yourself, Time of change, Love. I hadn’t meant to buy these cards, but it felt right to do so.

Even after I got home, it transpired that on one of my busiest nights of the week in the world of mummy-hood, there was time for me to experiment, play and set up my altar. It was meant for me; it was there to anchor and transmit energies generated in my spiritual practice; missing pieces had been found; it is set up almost as a soul key for growth, both of myself and of others with a soul connection to me. It is set up for miracles. And furthermore, it has acted as confirmation that some of those Pagan practices I was doing once before were right for me; that it is ok to mix my metaphors, so to speak, and resonate with parts of Christianity as well as follow my Pagan heart. And this all came about because of the signs – song lyrics, repeating words, words drawn on oracle cards, master numbers, inner guidance, spotting items I am drawn to – and the fact that I was alert to them, so I noticed them and I listened.

There are other forms of signs, too – feathers; ‘pennies from heaven'; smells, images or items which remind us of a particular person in the physical or on the spirit side of life; names; messages that stick in mind or that resonate deeply from TV, films, books; repeated messages or timely messages seen on the internet and social media; hunches, intuitions; dreams; timely advice from other people. If it is true Divine guidance, it will be positive, it will resonate in your heart (it feels like your heart is filled with love, warmth, joy, bliss or peace and you will be cheering or saying YES most emphatically in your mind), and if you miss it the first time, it will come again. And again. And again. Until you’ve got it, or until the message changes.

Whatever your current question is, keep it in your heart each morning. Pray to God, Source, Universe – whichever you feel comfortable with – or ask your angels, guides, or loved ones in spirit – and ask them to show you signs and guidance, to help in whatever way is best for your highest good with that particular question. You need to specifically ask for help with each individual question or concern – this is the only way they may intervene, due to the laws of free will. And then be alert, be watchful, be mindful, be observant. Try not to dash around at the usual pace of modern day living. Take things slow and really notice things around you. Then you will see the signs, and you will know you are being listened to, you are being answered, you are being guided, you are being assisted, and YOU ARE LOVED. Every one of us matter; all of our journeys are important; every time one of us moves forward on our path, we all grow and reach higher spiritually; because WE ARE ALL ONE.

2015: A Year of Heart Expansion?

I did consider starting a brand new blog for 2015. This one has been left for a long time, mostly because I had reached a plateau in my spiritual development. Nothing was moving, growing or happening in this area of my life, and maybe I needed that. Maybe I needed to focus on more mundane matters, on work and family and friends.

This last week between Christmas and New Year, I have had something of a breakthrough. Quite synchronistically, a string of events have occurred that have opened and expanded my heart further than ever. I am finding myself needing outlets for the outpouring of love for humanity that has followed. I have been in service spiritually for a number of years, but I find my priorities changing, my focus and direction changing, my purpose and mission sharper than ever before.

I have done a lot of clearing work, followed by a lot of rest and recuperation from that, and I have begun a daily practice of devotions, spiritual clearing exercises and meditations as well as changing my attitude to caring for myself in terms of diet and releasing addictions, including perpetual perfectionism and workaholism.

I think that’s partly why I have decided to stick with this blog. I understand now things don’t have to be perfect. Everything is just a process of growth and expansion, of growing into love – because the creative force in our universe, however you describe it, IS the vibration of love. Everything is ONE, so although I still love and am grateful for my angels I realise I am one and the same, I am interconnected, and the wisdom comes from a mixture of them and you and me and all-that-is when I channel messages for people. I feel myself vibrating higher than ever. I have the clarity I have sought for years.

I also didn’t want to let it go because I can see from comments on some of the old pages that people have found things on here useful. I will get around to replying to the comments, though some of you may have found your answers elsewhere now. I will not be deleting any of the old categories or pages, though as the flow in my life is taking a different course now I may not add to them, and I may create new ones as my wisdom and my ability to express it grows.

The catalyst for this is primarily a second twin flame awakening…more on that story in itself another time. However as everything is Divinely timed, it is of course also catalysed by the universal energies at this time. 2015 is being heralded as a key year for soul growth, for expansion, for twin flame reunions, for healing, and for fulfilling more of our purpose, mission and destiny. I won’t go into the numerological aspects of that, as there is plenty out there on the internet about it. I’m focusing on the feeling of it. For me, it is the year of the heart’s journey; a year of heart expansion, like never before.

Whatever has gone before in your life, it is never too late to do an about-turn and take a road less travelled – perhaps the road you have always feared but longed to take. It starts within you, and it starts with clearing and healing, and THAT in turn starts with listening to your heart, and following repetitive signs and synchronicities that show up in your life, in the form of videos, TV shows, books, quotes, people, opportunities, learning, etc. Life has a magical flow and a way of drawing your attention to things meant for you.

So Namaste Dear Ones and I wish you peace, love, joy, growth and healing in 2015.

I provide a range of services including channelled readings, online workshops and a free online interfaith community. Please visit, or email me at if you wish to enquire.

Love Poems – A Retrospective

22nd February has long been a power date for me. Coming right after Valentine’s Day, it seems a good day to express love to the universe. Countless types of love are expressed within the confines of these three verses – soulmate love, twin flame love, unconditional love, romantic love, forever love, passionate love, past life love, requited and unrequited love, fate, destiny, desire, hope, hopelessness, surrender, power. But above all else, love is love, and that is all, and love, as the song goes, is all we need.


He’s the reason I smile while I’m waking up
With his sweet words from the night before
In my heart; and in my mind, continued dreams
Roll on, and my spirit can soar.

He’s the warmth deep within, and my tingling skin
Speaks how I never wanted anyone so much
As him; Nothing else matters when I am in
His arms. He had me at the very first touch.

He’s the feeling I really could be beautiful,
That I matter, and that I am free
To choose my dreams, my destiny and my path
Knowing he would still walk with me.

He’s the protection I needed to bring real peace
To my heart, and quiet my chaos of fears;
The inspiration to be a better person, and cease
Doubting myself. And so the mist clears.

He’s the thought that brings hope when a hard day
Comes, and the song in my soul that grows;
I love that this man I admire and adore
Cares right back, and makes damn sure it shows.

But more than all this – he adds light to my light
And it blazes fierce when we’re apart.
He is the man who holds me close each night
Whether in his arms, or in his heart.


By the fire, crackling with warmth

We kept each other cool

Hands locking in the soft breeze

Eyes woven in a timeless pattern

Gentle for each other, dark lace

In another place.


Intelligent, your eyes spoke for your soul

You were nobody’s fool

Pretty words of love for infinity

Your thoughts raced ahead in time

Strong with a heart that knew no fear

In another year.


Beautiful moments, enclosed in the smoky air

Where music and silence rule

Fretful fingers wove flowers in my hair

As tender as the touch of the wind

Blazing love bled me like a knife

In another life.



No sonnet to hold the magic of feeling,
A trembling tenderness in my soul delights –
A shadowing sonnet to reflect the lights,
The beauty, the beauty, of ever believing.
No sadness to spoil the depth of compassion,
A freedom so simple, though love lives still –
A flyaway sonnet to soar with the thrill,
The release, the escape, of all love and all passion.
No days and no years could cut its throat,
A timeless emotion that cannot know never,
That can never quite give enough.
No cymbals for us with one splendid note –
A tambourine sonnet for you, forever
For the soft steady shake of this love.

A Smorgasbord of Shells…

Who says that holiday souvenirs had to be boring?

Having been away to Wales this last week – with short spiritual journeys aplenty which I will write about separately – I collected quite a number of unusual shells at Portmeirion and Shell Island in Harlech.

As I had been looking to refresh my spiritual altar areas for a while, I decided to go to the local car boot sale this morning to look for receptacles in which to display the shells, and I was not disappointed…Just thought I’d quickly share to show it is possible to create beautiful memory-triggering things for your home with very little.


Pink plates were 50p for the two because of a chip in the centre of the larger plate, obviously not visible because of the shells and the smaller plate. Animal print candles were 50p for the set. Shells were obviously free!


Gold lotus bowl with stones inscribed with Chinese characters included was also 50p due to a chip on one edge which is now not visible behind the shells and which could easily be repaired with a small amount of gold paint or a good quality gold paint pen.

I have my creative moments. This was one of my better ones. ;)

More to come soon on why beachcombing is good for the soul, fae and folklore, and a sentimental journey around Welsh castle country.

Walking Meditations

If you are anything like me, you may sincerely wish to develop yourself spiritually but have little time to set aside on a daily basis for earnest meditation. I know that when I get chance to sit down and meditate in the usual sense of the word, which is not daily, I am either too tired, or know there is too much else needing to be done, to be in the headspace to do it properly. I either fall asleep, or am distracted and have to stop and do some of the things nagging at my mind.

For some time now, part of my daily practice has involved trying to take a walk. This is about a number of things: connecting with nature, getting fresh air and a change of scene for myself and my baby daughter, and getting a modest amount of gentle exercise. I have been pondering on how I could incorporate meditation into my life more regularly, and my answer to that question, which came via pure intuition, turned out to be to combine it with that daily walk.

There is something rhythmic and automatic about walking. When I walk I am inevitably thinking about other things; however, as the walk itself has a practical purpose, whether I am taking my daughter to the park or popping to the shop for groceries, I am not distracted by thoughts of “other things I should be doing” from my to-do list – usually, I am ruminating on my current questions, ideas or plans.


I began to experiment with turning the walk into a meditation. I am lucky where I live in that there are lots of tree-lined paths and paths that cut through fields or still-green wasteland, or maintained parkland. However you could potentially do this anywhere – even in cities there are green spots, trees, beautiful architecture, and interesting sights to see which are all part of creation whether natural or man-made. Personally I find that by focusing on trees, flowers, grass, sky and the wildlife I see enjoying them, I am becoming present in the now, and clear ideas and answers sometimes come to mind; at other times, I am filled with more peace and calm, more assurance that I am on the right path.


I start the walk with gratitudes for the day and asking questions of my angels and guides which are current. I then “let go” of that to the higher beings and focus on appreciating nature. Where answers are forthcoming, they come in a myriad of ways and it really is a daily miracle. I may see a particular animal, for example a bee or a butterfly, a cat or a bird, whose “medicine” has a message for me. I may hear or feel a gentle breeze and be assured that my angels are listening and will bring me an answer at a later time. Sometimes it comes as an intuition, directly into my thoughts but of a voice other than mine. If I have negativity to release, I will point my fingers out and send it towards the green plants, as they are able to transmute it back to pure white light energy, just as they transmute carbon dioxide back to oxygen. Once I begin to drift out of that “tuned-in” state, I finish the walk with I AM affirmations, which relate to whichever qualities I need to tap into that day.


In this way, this method is flexible and responsive to what I need right here, right now. There are many variations you could apply to suit your own needs – you may prefer to start and end with a prayer. You may wish to take a camera or notebook to record signs or inspiring scenes you encounter. You may prefer to mix up the order in which I do things. You may wish to include fiats (short sharp requests to angels or saints) or decrees (powerful statements of creation to the universe). You may wish to listen to spiritual or classical music or a spoken meditation on an iPod as you walk. Mix it up – it doesn’t matter. This is one form of meditation you can make your own. It can also be done in any weather with appropriate clothing. The only thing I would caution against is becoming so involved in your thoughts that you don’t pay attention to road safety. I am lucky in that the places I tend to walk there are few roads. But you can stay safe by simply coming to full awareness of what you are physically doing when there is need to cross a road. Because with a walking meditation it is mindful at all times and your eyes are open, so there is not the same risk of falling asleep or “drifting”.

I have found since starting to do this that synchronicity has been more at work in my life, leading me to people, places, situations and messages that are literally “clues” to questions I have had in my mind. I am also finding that the experience is incremental, and with each practice it becomes more powerful. This week during a walking meditation, at a moment of real peace and calm where baby had fallen asleep in her pushchair and I was sitting and resting surrounded by trees, ducks, water, grass and birds, I felt fully in touch with my angels and guides. I put the question out there whether any of them had a message for my “Angel Message of the Day” over on the FB page, and had an immediate impression of the Ascended Master Lord Sananda (Jesus) in my mind’s eye followed by a short but beautiful message that simply “came”. I repeated it back to him and then back to myself in my mind to ensure I would not forget before reaching home and my laptop (I did not forget). I also received healing and felt him working on my crown chakra. An experience I will never forget.


So if you are, like me, one of those people who finds traditional meditation very hard to commit to in practice, this may be something you wish to consider. I find that doing this at least 2-3 times per week makes a real difference in my life.
