Interview your Deck Spread

Interview your Deck Spread: Have you ever brought a new Tarot or Oracle Card Deck and, after using it a couple times, felt like you just couldn’t connect with it? Maybe you didn’t like the imagery, or perhaps you didn’t resonate with the messaging? I have.

But since using this spread to get to know the energy of a Deck before I use it has enabled me to understand its synergy and how best I can incorporate it into my spiritual practice – it also helps me best pair it with my other decks, because who doesn’t love using different decks together! Right?!

Using this spread to essentially interview a new card Deck, whether Tarot or Oracle, will help you gain insight into how you and the Deck will vibe, and will expand your understanding of Holistic Tarot!!

Your journey to Self-Healing

Elevate your Life Course - self-healing courseWhy learn about self-healing and holistic (and natural/chemical free) methods of health and wellness?
Or how to use energy healing tools to benefit your, and your family’s, health and wellbeing? 💁🏻‍♀️ I’ll tell you why, Beauty! 🦋

Life is stressful.
For us.
For our partners.
For our kids – no matter how big or small they are.

Our daily lives require a LOT from us – whether we’re being a mom, a sister, a daughter and caretaker, a business woman, helping others, or simply being a friend.
Even our kids have to navigate the pressures of school, friendships, growing up, and figuring out who they are!
And then we can throw in all of the social, environmental, and technological noise – are we ever really quiet?
Do we ever really stop?
When we do, it’s usually because we’re unwell or burnt out, right?
Have you ever felt down or apathetic for no reason?
Felt unmotivated and uninspired?
I used to. ALL the time!

Sacred Space: A personal sanctuary

You deserve something special, dedicated to YOU and your self-care! Having a sacred space not only transforms part of your environment into a sanctuary for you, but it gives you a place to visit every day, where you can turn off the noise of the World, and focus inward, on YOU, and what you need.

Simply put, Sacred Space is time and space (an area) that you have intentionally set aside to experience a re-connection with yourself, your Divination, and your Spirit, which usually escapes us in this fast-paced everyday life we live. The object of this is to maintain a healthy and balanced (aligned) connection with your body, your mind, your intuition, your soul (Higher Self / Spirit / Inner Compass), and your emotions.

Now, a sacred space doesn’t have to be crazy! I started with just an incense burner and a chunk of rose quartz on my entrance table. I made a point of burning a stick of incense every day, quietly watching the smoke rise and feeling my stresses melt away, even if it was only for those 10 minutes.

When Personal Development and Self-Healing count the most

Did you know that most women experience a spiritual awakening either during pregnancy or after giving birth?🤰🏻✨

When we become mothers, we go through major shifts on an emotional and physical level, but it also happens on an energetic (or spiritual) level.

Becoming a mom, even while we are still pregnant, there’s a shift in our awareness, not only of this new life that we are growing and protecting, but we become aware of who we are, how we function, what we believe in, who we connect to and resonate with as Divinity, how we feel about ourselves and what kind of person we are. 💕☀️👸🏻

It’s never too late to make the changes you…

“I am so lucky that our paths crossed when it did, because you have helped me in so many ways. The Elevate your Life course has been such an eye opening experience. I’ve learnt a lot from the questions that I had to ask myself. And even though sometimes I felt fear of the answers to those questions I pushed through and felt so much stronger at the end. I go back to my notes every so often and it reminds me of where I want to go and who I am and who I want to become! I will be forever grateful for this course!”

When I started learning about the simple ways that I could regain my calm, create a healthy, happy environment for myself and my family, as well as learn how to use simple and practical tools and methods to restore balance and wellbeing for all of us, I felt EMPOWERED AF!!💪🙌

Inner Child Healing; An Oracle Card Spread

Understanding and Healing the wounds of your inner child goes along way toward understanding how, and why, you view yourself the way you do, as well as understanding a lot of the limiting beliefs and negative emotions that you experience! There is so much that we can learn about ourselves, experiences that we don’t remember, and behaviors that begin to make sense, when we work with our inner child.

There is so much that we can learn about ourselves, experiences that we don’t remember, and behaviors that begin to make sense, when we work with our inner child.

Oracle Cards can be light and ‘fluffy’, but they can also be a deep and insightful tool to use during your journey of self-exploration and healing.

Here’s an Oracle Card spread from the new Module of my Self-Healing Course – Elevate your Life – that you can use towards healing and restoring the energetic balance of your Inner Child; through self-acceptance, the release of control, and by encouraging self-healing through introspection, inner dialogue, meditation, new ideas, forgiveness, and taking proper action in a new and positive manner.

Making Forgiveness Easy-er

Forgiveness is a tough subject. It’s not easy and it can be hard to ‘forgive and forget’ in order to move on. Sometimes we don’t want to forgive someone for hurting us, or even someone we love, because we feel that then the person has been ‘let off the hook’.

But what I’ve learnt about forgiveness is that it’s not about the other person, AT ALL. Forgiveness is about YOU.

It’s about letting go of that hurt and anger (& even resentment) that sits in our hearts and brings us down. Forgiveness is about breaking the tie that the other person holds over you; their energy, the energy of the situation, the emotions that you feel toward them. Forgiveness is about releasing YOUrself.

Forgiveness can be practiced for small things like silly arguments with your partner, a friend letting you down, and even you practicing forgiveness toward yourself. Forgiveness is also a huge part of the healing process when it comes to bigger issues… and I promise you this – it is truly empowering.

Crystals and Oils for Forgiveness

Today I wanted to share my favourites tools to help the process when working through forgiveness.

Navigating Negative Emotions

I was so moved by the abundance of women who reached out to me yesterday after my post about negative emotions, and how they could learn more about embracing their emotions through this technique.

This technique is typically something that I teach in Level 1 of my Reiki Certification BUT due to increasing interest in this topic, I am going to make this technique available in a ONE TIME ONLY 4-week group coaching workshop for those who want to learn about it, without having to study Reiki.

What are Negative Emotions?

Negative emotions are feelings, thoughts, and words that make up part of our inner dialogue, bring our vibration down, and leave us feeling miserable or sad.

Do you experience any of these emotions on a regular basis?

  • anger
  • rage
  • anxiety
  • guilt
  • shame
  • insecurity
  • jealousy
  • judgment
  • sadness
  • hatred
  • pessimism
  • self-criticism
  • fear

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these, then, Gorgeous Soul, you are dealing with negative emotions.

This workshop is going to be intensive but will cover a range of topics and exercises to help you build your awareness of your emotions, help you unpack them (and their underlying issues), and embrace them into a loving and positively beneficial state. Our negative emotions need just as much love and nurturing as those elements of ourselves that live in the light. In fact, our negative emotions (and experiences) are our greatest teachers and lessons. They take us on a journey deep within ourselves so that we can truly understand and recognize the ALL that we are.

This workshop will only be available for 10 women (or men), and will be broken down into weekly segments;

🌟 Week 1 – Negative Emotions and Self-Awareness

🌟 Week 2 – Identifying Surface-level Triggers

🌟 Week 3 – Unpacking Triggers and Trauma

🌟 Week 4 – Holding, Healing, and Loving Negative Emotions.

The workshop will be interactive online group lessons and will require that you ‘do the work’ – I won’t just be dumping you with content and expecting you to do the work on your own. Classes will be held over four consecutive Saturdays to accommodate those with full-time jobs.

BONUS 🌟Week 3 will include 1 x 1-on-1 coaching session with me to navigate through that week’s lesson and exercises (valued at $120). Week 4 will include a pack of all exercises and content discussed during the four weeks so that you have it to keep forever.

Workshop Dates (time tbc):

  • Sat, 17 March 2018
  • Sat, 24 March 2018
  • Sat, 31 March 2018
  • Sat, 7 April 2018

A little truth about your Ego

Like a lot of things that rise in popularity and become an almost societal pop-culture in and of itself, riddled with opinions and ideas of how certain things should be done – there are certain elements of the spiritual/self-help genre that I feel have become heavily infiltrated with the same type of behaviours. Specifically speaking – THE EGO.

Sadly, the EGO has been given a really bad reputation, even so much as being referred to as the false identity that we create of ourselves. It is something that we are inadvertently taught to fear so that we don’t allow it to rule us, our thoughts, or the way we construct our life. Many in the spiritual world teach that the ego is limiting, that in order to be able to live a truly balanced life, we must be able to transcend the ego – the all-consuming energy that has been blamed for everything from destroying relationships to creating insecurities. We become riddled with guilt when we dip into our ego, making ourselves feel better by posting memes on social media that go something like “my ego made me do it…” and label it insecurity, arrogance, EGOtistical.

But what isn’t spoken about the EGO is that it is, in fact, the MOST crucial element in the development of the Self and can be used as our greatest source of motivation. This misrepresentation of the ego is what keeps us stuck in what we think we’re supposed to be doing, as opposed to doing what we know we can do. The only problem with the ego is not that it is limiting, but that we let ourselves be confined by it at all times.

The word ‘ego’ comes from Greek roots e (I) and go (earth) meaning the most grounded part of the individualised consciousness. The ego is born during the ages 18months – 4 y/o, when the Manipura Chakra, the third Chakra, begins to mature and comes as a result of the realisation that we are a separate entity from our mothers. This stage in a child’s life is also referred to as the “terrible 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s…

The ego becomes the anchor of our experiences, forming our identity as we begin to explore our self, our world separate from our mothers, our boundaries and new paradigms – as we begin to separate from our innate support system (our mothers), the ego filters which experiences to hold on to and which to reject, it drives our movement toward discovering new things within our environment and all the while balancing the energies in our system, maintaining homeostasis, and ensuring that we are self-sufficient, safe, engaged, and effective enough to grow and develop. If we want our children to grow up as autonomous individuals, to have power, and to accept responsibility, we need to supply guidance without suppressing the delicate, emerging ego.

Like a new blade of grass, the ego is bravely but tenderly pushing its first shoots above the ground, reaching for the light of the heavens. May we tread carefully, with patience and strength of will, giving it the nourishment, it needs to grow.” Anodea Judith.

As we grow into our lives and experiences different things (both good and bad), this begins to shape the ego – as well as the reactions (impulses) that it holds on to. As with all things, the ego also has polarity, a shadow side, and when the ego becomes weakened or damaged, it can become controlling, self-sabotaging, fearful, uninspired, rebellious – or any of those other negative connotations we associate with the go – in an attempt to restore homeostasis. When we become trapped in this weakened ego state, it can indeed over-shadow us when we allow it to take the wheel, to be in control. This ‘shadow’ side of our ego is called the SMALL EGO. The small ego is what keeps us stuck in what we think we’re supposed to be doing, as opposed to doing what we know we can do. The only problem with the small ego is not that it is limiting, but that we let ourselves be confined by it at all times.

In our early years, the ego becomes the mediator between our developing personal identity and all that we experience in our world. A healthy ego is where a strong will, healthy self-esteem, personal power, and confidence are established – these of course benefitting us later in life in achieving our goals, manifesting our desires, being proactive, successful, and responsible adults. A healthy ego is the fire in our belly that ignites the action, that motivates us to strive forward, to take on new challenges, and to continually be the best possible versions of ourselves.

A healthy ego can be our best friend, if we truly understand it and understand how and why it responds the way it does, because, at the end of the day, our ego is us, we are our ego. Sure, it can be a little over-protective sometimes, but aren’t all best friends like that?
