Working through the whys and wherefores of emotions and taking time to develop meditative understanding are key elements of positive living.

                                
In a trying situation, it is important to take a step back and examine your reactions to people or events. Find a quiet place to contemplate understanding.

Healing meditation – mantra 

  • I can build patience and combat bitter emotions by understanding why I feel this way.
  • I can love better by understanding others and offering sensitive support.
  • I will embrace all things without judgement to enhance my understanding of their nature.

Why not give it a go, it only takes a few minutes.

Treat everyone you meet with love – they may be angels in disguise.


Angels and Ascended Masters are able to manifest in different forms. Very often the guide chosen is not what you would expect; remember that angels are non-denominational and the pictures we may have of blond, blue-eyed angels are our own imagination too.

I have heard of angels appearing as beggars, blind old men, little old ladies, tall Reasyafarians, even angelic truck-drivers. Angels are always around to help us when we really need them, but do we always feel the same way? By treating everyone as you like to be treated, by showing kindness at every opportunity, you too are spreading unconditional angelic love in action.

Just because you a mummy doesn’t mean you can take stress any better, you are not alone……


To the mom hiding in her bathroom, needing peace for just one minute, as the tears roll down her cheeks..
To the mom who is so tired she feel likes she can’t function anymore and would do anything to lay down and get the rest she needs…
To the mom sitting in her car, alone, stuffing food in her face because she doesn’t want anyone else to see or know she eats that stuff…
To the mom crying on the couch after she yelled at her kids for something little and is now feeling guilty and like she is unworthy…

To the mom that is trying desperately to put those old jeans on because all she really wants is to look in the mirror and feel good about herself…
To the mom that doesn’t want to leave the house because life is just too much to handle right now…
To the mom that is calling out for pizza again because dinner just didn’t happen the way she wanted it to…
To the mom that feels alone, whether in a room by herself or standing in a crowd…
You are enough.

You are important.

You are worthy.
This is a phase of life for us. This is a really really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life.
In the end it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard. And it’s hard for so many of us in many different ways. We don’t always talk about it, but it’s hard and it’s not just you.
You are enough.

You are doing your best.
Those little eyes that look up at you – they think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough.
Those little hands that reach out to hold you – they think you are the strongest. They think you can conquer the world.
Those little mouths eating the food you gave them – they think that you are the best because their bellies are full.
Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours – they don’t want anything more. They just want you.
Because you are enough. You are more than enough, mama.

You. Are. Amazing. ❤️❤️

Do you want to attract money into your home?

Basil is a herb that is easy to grow in a little pot in the kitchen, which is then transferred outside during the warmer months. It’s aromatic green leaves symbolise money and financial success, and are easily incorporated in kitchen magic as well as in spells. If you do not like the taste of ordinary basil, do not worry – try one of the varieties on offer such as Thai basil, or leaves that have lemon, spicy cinnamon or even chocolate scents.


Useful spells for Basil

To attract money into your home after the Christmas festivities, try this; 

Place five Basil leaves and five copper coins under your front door mat. As you place down each coin and leaf, say ‘money come to me-just as much as I need. Greedy I am not, I don’t need a lot.’

How about attracting more income?

Prepare a dish with lots of basil (spaghetti with pesto is especially good, as the yellow pasta symbolises energy and inspiration), and eat it on a Thursday before discussing possible options with your family or asking for a raise at work.

Do you spend too much money whilst on a shopping spree?

Place a green piece of string in your wallet with basil oil rubbed into it, position it so that every time you open your wallet to pay for things you see it. It will soon curb your bad habits.

Did you know that basil was traditionally grown on St Basils feast day on 2nd January. Greek people believe that on this date bread containing a coin should be baked and given to family.

Amid the clamour of the modern world, silence has a great therapeutic value.

                                   

Finding and appreciating silence will help you to banish painful thoughts or emotions.

Try the following meditation.

  • I will cultivate silence for its peace and grandeur.
  • I am connecting with silence.
  • I will let the silence block out bad thoughts.
  • Silence will help me to let go of painful thoughts and emotions.

If you wake up in the night worrying about a problem, turn your attention instead to the quiet darkness around you -or relish an experience more by living it silently, giving it your full attention.

Angels don’t always blow their own trumpets – the noise would be deafening!


There is no need to list all the wonderful things that angels do. Similarly, there is no need to tell the world how wonderful you are when you do something wonderful for someone else. Spontaneous acts of kindness need no fanfare. The person receiving your generosity of spirit knows what you have done, as do the angels. Nothing is missed.

Archangel Metatron and the Recording Angels collect every thought and action in the Akashic Records – that cosmic stonehouse of doers and deeds. When you do something wonderful, Metatron takes note. Yet keep in mind that the kindest acts are those we do without expecting recognition.

15 Affirmations for Following Your Intuition

Affirmations for further strengthening your intuitive gifts.

I said who am I 
To blow against the wind?’
I know what I know
I’ll sing what I said
We come and we go
That’s a thing that I keep
In the back of my head.”
-Paul Simon, I Know What I Know
Intuition is a sensation in the body—maybe a tingling in the back of the head, maybe a queasiness in your stomach—but you know it, when you are certain of something. Your body is clanging, regardless of whether you want to receive the message or not. Intuition is such a powerful tool, and scientists tell us that it is strongly linked to our body’s physical reactions, including the way our eyes process information, the way our gut sends signals (literally), and even the ways our noses smell. They don’t call this the Sixth Sense for nothing, as we’re getting information on levels we don’t even realize. But it’s easy to lose track of these signals, particularly when we are overtired, stressed, angry or overwhelmed. We can boost our powers of intuition by regularly meditating, spending enough quiet time alone, and being properly rested—these can all help us tune in better.
On the energy side, intuition is associated with the 6th chakra, ajna, also called “the third eye.” This is the spot between your eyebrows. Child’s pose, where the third eye is pressing against the floor, is good for this chakra.
Here are some affirmations for further strengthening your intuitive gifts.
My true self is talking.

I am fully present.  

The future is filled with possibilities.

I call upon the tools naturally offered to me.

I listen to my body and my feelings.

I’m open to receiving divine guidance.

I am aligned with my values.

I am tuned in to the cosmos.

I am connected to my inner vision.

My intuitive self is guiding me.

I trust in my true purpose.

I invite guidance and clarity.

I trust my feelings and insights.

I am fully guided by the universe.

My intuition grows stronger every day.

Affirmation of the month “I release thoughts of fear and limitation. I’m excited and creatively present. I’m willing to change and grow in ways that are perfect for me.”

Steps to a positive change:

Sit in a quiet spot and ask your guardian angel to be with you.Put your hand on your heart and visualise it filling with pink light. Smelling a rose, or rose essential oil will, automatically strengthen this heart connection, as will focussing on a person you love, a beloved pet or beautiful landscape.

If you wanted to work with crystals for this heart-opening exercise these crystals would be ideal: Amazonite, Celestite, Actinolite, and Rose Pink Tourmaline.

Write down all the positives in the situation or relationship or person that you can think of. If you’ve been seeing this negatively for a while, begin with small things. For example, it could be the fact that your workplace offers sick pay, excellent coffee and that you’re near a lovely park where you can spend your lunch break! If it’s an aspect of yourself you want to change and you don’t feel self-loving, notice what others appreciate about you. Are you kind? Do you have a great sense of humour? Are you relypiabke, affectionate or an inspiring friend?

Hold one of your crystals and affirm: ‘ I appreciate all the positives. I’m so excited to think of my life becoming even better. In six weeks/six months/a year I’ll be …. and I’m enjoying every step of the journey towards the goal. I’m discovering new qualities and abilities in myself and others along the way. I’m alert and open to the new opportunities the Universe is sending to help me manifest my desires.

Keep your crystal charged with your desire, within reach, and at any time you feel discouraged, read your list of positives. (You may wish to add to it!) and repeat your affirmation.

Like everything in nature, your body will change with the seasons and years. ~ Unselfconsciousness healing meditation.

Learn to be comfortable with yourself at every age and accept the cycle of life. As you meditate, repeat these thoughts to yourself.

  • I am a small wave in the ocean of existence.
  • I will change with the tides and will accept these changes.
  • I am gradually being absorbed into the ocean of existence.
  • All is water, nothing more.

If you are inclined to compare yourself unfavourably with others, think of your wholeness and who you really are. Surrendering yourself to time’s passage without resentment is an important part of healing meditation.

An angel will never give up on you, even if you have given up on yourself!

Many of us are plagued by feelings of unworthiness or low self-esteem. Keep in mind that all thoughts create energy, and like attracts like. When we focus on negative thinking, we attract disappointments and disasters.

Archangel Chamuel and the Angels of Love can help you overcome negative feelings if you ask. Close your eyes and ask that angelic love surround you. Banish negative thinking by saying, three times, ‘be gone feelings of anti-love!’ See yourself surrounded by bright pink light and feel instantly uplifted.

Remember, also, that your guardian angels are with you even when you are feeling negative. You are special to your angels no matter how you are feeling about yourself. Whenever you need reassurance, guidance, protection and love, just call on them for help. Soon you will be shown the way to happiness again.
