2013 has been an exciting year so far. I have started to write a book about my experiences with the angels, energy healing and spirituality. Since I fully embraced my spiritual side life has changed so dramatically. Over the past couple of years I have made a commitment to myself to be more honest about who I am and what I do. Talking about my experiences with angels is part of that commitment. For many years I have hidden this part of myself away and it’s time to stop hiding and start living. This is just a little taster of what’s in the book:
Since 2009 I have been practising Reiki professionally and taking clients for intuitive angel guidance (readings). Reiki was something that I trained in but my intuitive and psychic abilities have come naturally – they have been there since birth. For years I battled with my emotions and feelings around being able to see and hear things that other people couldn’t see. Only close friends and family knew of my experiences and even then I didn’t always tell them everything. I could see these beautiful beings around other people and to me they were very real. They looked like people but seemed to be brighter and lighter than anyone else. At the time I didn’t realise what I could see were angels. I knew them as the ‘light people’ because I could see beautiful rays of light all different colours beaming out from them.
My first vivid memories of seeing and hearing these light people was as a young child, maybe 2 or 3 years old. Quite often I would have picnics in the garden with my toy friends and imaginary friends! I would set up places around the picnic blanket for myself and my friends. My mum would bring out fruit and yogurts and I wasn’t happy unless my imaginary friends got their share of the food! I enjoyed their company and could play for hours ‘by myself’. I preferred the company of the light people to real people. To those around me it seemed I preferred being alone, yet I was never alone. Growing up I realised that not everyone could see what I was seeing so I learned to keep this to myself. I began hiding away my true feelings and began trying to fit in and be ‘normal’ – whatever that is!
Over the years I realised being ‘normal’ wasn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. I began to reconnect with my light friends, the angels. Nowadays I feel their presence all the time and quite often get glances of their beautiful light. When I began practising Reiki and meditation their presence began to come through stronger. I began tuning in to their energy again and it felt wonderful. The energy of the angels is so pure and light. They have such a powerful healing presence and can uplift the energy of a room in seconds.
About 5 or 6 years ago a friend encouraged me to do angel card readings for some of her friends. After some persuasion I reluctantly agreed as long as I could do some Reiki as well. I had never done readings for anyone before, only for myself or family. I asked my angels why this was happening and I was told this was to be my work. Terrified, I began doing readings for friends, then their friends and their friends. I wanted people not only to receive answers to their questions but I wanted them to receive the healing they needed in order to help them move past any energetic blockages that might be holding them back in life. In the early days just before a person would arrive for a reading I would pace up and down the hallway doing deep breathing exercises to calm my nerves. I was petrified. Once the person arrived and I began to tune in to the angelic energy I would completely relax and just move with the energy. And once they left again I moved back into self-doubt. It was an emotional roller coaster those first few months and even years of doing the readings. Word began to spread and more and more people arrived. Eventually I found myself beginning to really enjoy it. I thank the angels every day for steering me in this direction and for giving me the courage to face my fears and embrace my gifts.
I absolutely love this work and giving people the guidance and support that they need in making minor and major life decisions. Everyone needs a little guidance at some point and it is a comforting feeling to know that the angels are there whenever we need them. My work with the angels is to help empower people, to steer them in the right direction for them and to support them as they begin to make positive changes in their lives. I have seen many people completely blossom as a result of calling on their angels for guidance and then following that guidance with real inspired action.
Our angels are here to show us the way and to lead us in the right direction, but it is up to us to take action after that. We are in charge of our own lives and we have the ability to change the direction of our lives with our thoughts, our beliefs and our actions. I ask my angels for help every day. I ask them to help in my decision making for big and small situations. I ask them to help me be courageous when I am fearful and I ask them to help motivate me when I need to take action. I call on them for protection when driving or when I’m out and about. They can assist in steering me in the right direction and then I can decide whether or not to go that way. Even if you cannot see or hear your angels know that they are with you every step of the way. They cannot intervene unless we ask for their assistance. They are just waiting for your invitation into your life today.
Try this little exercise –
Take a couple of big deep breaths. Put your hand on your heart and close your eyes. Set an intention to allow the healing energy of your angels to flow through you. Imagine a beam of white light pouring down from above your head. Visualise it flowing down through your body. As it flows it is washing away any fear, any worry or anxiety. This light is dissolving away any anger or frustration. Let the light pour right down through your body, into every cell until it reaches your toes. Now imagine all those negative emotions are being flushed away out through your feet. You whole body is filled with this angelic light. Let it consume you. Breathe into it and allow it to uplift your energy. Now open your eyes and take another deep breath. Hopefully you feel a little more energised and enthused.
If you have any angel experiences I’d love to hear. Have a wonderful day!
