What if there was a different way?

This week has been a difficult one for us here in the UK, and especially here in the North West where I live.  In fact, on Tuesday of this week I travelled to Manchester to be a guest on a local community radio station for 2 hours talking about angels and their messages of peace and love.

The invitation was extended to me about 3 weeks ago and when I went to make the appointment, I was shown very clearly that I had to be the guest on the 23rd.

What I experienced

As I travelled to, through and from Manchester, the mood overall was very upbeat, with plenty of good positive energy flowing.  The community was pulling together and people were adjusting to the sudden, but temporary change.

One of the main train stations was closed and so people were having to use alternative trains to get to their destinations, but everyone did so with good heart.  In fact, on my way there, I ended up sitting next to a lady and we talked non-stop about angels all the way to Manchester.

What the media portrayed

When I got to the radio station though, the energy was very different – it was all about keeping people feeling helpless and fearful.  The news was broadcast every thirty minutes and each time it focused on the scariest aspects of what happened.

If you wanted to find out the real stories of what happened, the only place you found this was on social media.  Stories of bravery, compassion and reaching out to strangers to offer comfort, shelter and love abounded.  People from all walks of life banded together and let complete strangers into their homes, their cars, their lives.

One of the stories that touched me was the story of how two homeless men who had been begging by the stadium leaped into action to help the children, teenagers and adults who had been injured.  In the newspaper stories about this, there seemed to be a feeling of incredulity that two people that they very often portray as being not worthy of our love or compassion should do something selfless for other people.

Lesson learned

For me, it’s high time that our media was used to bring out the best in people, to show just how loving, caring and compassionate our society really is.  The negativity and the manipulation of people’s emotions for the worse is one of the many reasons that I avoid having contact with the mainstream media.

While I loved being the guest on the radio station, and the fact that my angels knew that there would be a very great need for their message on that day, it saddened me to see how people are being manipulated without their awareness.  And part of me wants nothing to do with that, and part of me wants to be part of what will come out of all this.

What people *really* want

What we have to learn most of all is that what people everywhere want is connection.  A connection to love, to friendship, to their tribe.  We spend a great deal of our time building walls between ourselves and our fellow human beings.

  • We spend hours on our phones, using the written word to communicate, and forgetting the power of our own voices to make connection with others
  • We bury ourselves in busy work to feel like we’re “doing” something instead of using that time to show how much we love ourselves and other people
  • We push earphones into our ears to block out the sounds of other people and to create our own private world, disconnected from the world around us
  • We rely on large organisations to provide our daily needs and thus disconnect ourselves from the natural world and the changing of the seasons
  • We use intermediaries to communicate difficult news to others
  • We bury ourselves in the torrent of news and advertising so that we can sooth ourselves with “stuff” instead of with connection
  • We label people by their faith, sexuality, gender, financial status, job title and emphasise the differences between “them” and “us”

We are all one in this world of ours.  It may seem that we are all separate beings, but in reality we are all of the one mind and the one heart.  We are more similar than we are different.

A new reality

Yesterday the angels gave me an inspired glimpse of an alternative future reality where instead of the news focusing on the horror of tragedies like this, it encouraged us all to send love, healing, compassion and prayers to help those involved.

It broadcast details of

  • *practical* things we could do to help, such as donating goods, money or blood
  • details of where volunteers were needed to help comfort the injured and bereaved
  • a timetable of when extra resources would be needed in the days ahead so that systems did not become overloaded and emergency teams overwhelmed
  • times when group healing could be sent to help the situation

And instead of relentlessly talking about the injured and dead, it kept the focus on the good, and only broadcast known facts, rather than speculation, gossip, hearsay and rumour, and limited those broadcasts to 2-3 times per day, rather than 2-3 times an hour.

Change Your Focus

When we focus on connection, love and compassion, it enables the world to change.  People reach out to each other, old differences are forgotten, priorities and life focus change, and in the process the whole of humanity is uplifted.

One day, our great grandchildren will come to us and say “Did that really used to happen?  Why did people do that to themselves?  Didn’t they know that love is what will help most, not fear?  Things really were messed up in the olden days!”

And I’d love to be able to say to my great grandchildren “Yes, they were for a time, however I was blessed to be among the first to help make those changes for the better.  The angels guided me and showed me how to bring love to people who felt they didn’t have enough.  And now you and all your friends get the benefit of those changes.  It took a lot of courage on the parts of many people, but in the end love and common sense prevailed.”

What would you like to tell your great grandchildren one day?

Much love

On Sunday night I put my foot down to the Universe

So there I was stood in my kitchen getting my dinner ready having a massive rant to my angels.  I was totally going for it, clearing out all the thoughts that had been circling around my head, thoughts that until that moment I hadn’t dared express.  Or that I even knew were there, at times!

Angels, I ranted, you know that I hate living in this area!  You know that I deserve better!  You know where I belong, and I don’t belong here!

Earlier that evening I’d been travelling back from my daughter’s house after looking after my granddaughters all weekend.  And as I queued up to get the bus back to my current house I could feel such major discomfort coming up.

A discomfort that I’d been aware of for quite some time but that I didn’t quite know how to shift – I’d tried all my usual remedies and they’d shifted some of it but not all of it.

As usual to make my journeys more pleasant, I was listening to an audio book.  This time I was listening to Dr Christiane Northrup’s new book Making Life Easy.  In one of the chapters she shared a prayer technique that I hadn’t come across before and so as she read out the words I envisaged the part of my life that is giving me the most discomfort – my home.

As I followed the technique I began to feel things shifting.  Then as I got off the bus at the other end, the true horror (to me) of where I am currently living came into stark clarity.

As I closed the front door I could feel it beginning to bubble up inside.  And shortly after I let rip to the angels.  As usual they were neither ruffled, nor judgmental.  Instead they welcomed me clearing both my emotions and my thoughts.

You see I’d been plagued with thoughts like

  • Am I asking for too much to go and live in Formby?
  • Will I end up repeating the mistakes I made previously when I lived in a bigger house?
  • Will I end up in financial difficulties again if I take on a private rental home?
  • I should be content with where I am as it’s been a good place to recover my sense of self
  • Does it really matter where I live because the work I do is international and only needs an internet connection?

What my weekend in Formby had showed me was many things

  • That I was ready to let go of the vow I’d made when I was 17 and emotionally troubled to never go back and live in Formby
  • That it was a joy to look out of the windows of your home and not feel afraid of what you would see or hear
  • That the people were friendly and welcoming and have similar outlooks to mine in many ways
  • That I would be within walking distance of my daughter, granddaughters and parents
  • That it was time to open up fully the manifesting channels that I’d begun to work with a few weeks ago

So the contrast between where I see myself and where I want to be and live and where I am actually living was so strong that it launched a huge rocket of desire on my part to have done with the faffing around and the mincing about and the general wishy-washiness of my thinking.

After all, although I was venting at the angels, it wasn’t my angels who needed convincing that I deserve better… it was me!!

 The angels had patiently brought me step-by-step to this place where I could safely vent let go of all the fug and the fogginess and the muzziness and could get complete and utter clarity.

So once I’d let go of the anger and frustration at myself, I took action.  After all there’s no point in putting your foot down to the Universe and then sitting back on your bum and doing nothing about it.  All the clarity in the world won’t help you, if you don’t then do something to help the Universe along!!

I put a post in a Facebook group I’m part of which consists of old school friends.  Friends, I said, I have some good news – I’m moving back to Formby!  I’m looking for a house to rent and if anyone knows of anything that is available please let me know.  I may be able to take on my daughter’s house when she completes the purchase of her first home, but otherwise, I need some help.

Within an hour or so I got a message from one of my school friends saying he might be able to help with finding me a house.  Divinely inspired action has rapid results!!

And although the step I took wasn’t huge – it was just a post in a Facebook group – it stated clearly my intention, and also the timetable I’m working to (mid-July).

And when I woke up the next morning I was full of energy and enthusiasm for finding new ways to increase my income to ensure that I can enjoy a good lifestyle as part of the upgrading of my home.

And again I took rapid action, posting in a Mastermind group that I’m part of asking for help with rapidly growing my income.  And again the Universe responded immediately – I made contact with a marketing coach who gave me lots of fabulous guidance to help me get more people aware of my work.

So if you’re struggling to get something manifesting or changing in your life, make sure you find as many ways/times you can to get total clarity.  With total clarity the Universe can come to your aid in a million little ways that you can’t see right now.

Because as Abraham reminds us, the vibration of the solution to the problem you are experiencing is totally different, and you have to find a way to get from where you are to where the solution is, by shifting your vibrations.

In other words you have to clear out the crap in your head, take action and get out of your own way!

Why can’t I see angels?

Angels love to help!

I’m going to make a confession here – I can’t see angels.  I can sense them, hear them, feel them, but I rarely see them.  And there’s a good reason for this.

My primary psychic sense is claircognisance.

There are 4 main clair or psychic senses and 2 minor ones.  Most people are familiar with the word clairvoyant, which means clear seeing.  In other words, someone who is clairvoyant can see, often with their physical eyes, but mostly with their mind’s eye, angels, spirit guides, aura colours and other aspects of the unseen world.   But this gift is relatively rare which is why so many people say to me that they can’t see angels.

I got chatting with a lady I met in one of my Facebook groups and she said to me that she had real trouble seeing angels in the classic “wings, halo and golden hair” image.

I explained that there are two main reasons for this:

  • Angels are non-physical beings, so they don’t have a form that we would recognise. The images we are familiar with are ones that angels create for us so that if we see them, we can recognise who they are.  In reality, they are simply balls of energy.  I have a photo that I took of some horses and blazed across the photo is a line of gold-white energy, like you see in your eyes when you’ve looked at a light source for too long.  That was an angel passing by!


  • Her primary psychic sense is more likely than not to be one of the other senses – clairaudience, clairsentience or claircognisance.

Clairaudience means clear hearing.  This is when you hear either in your own voice in your head, or through your physical ears, messages from angels or other members of your spirit team.  You may also notice a high pitched ringing in your ear from time to time.

I often hear my angels and angels will also use clairaudience via things that you hear from/through other people, eg by listening to an audio book and you have a lightbulb moment.

Clairsentience means clear feeling – this is when you get a sensation in your body such as a sudden feeling of joy coming over you, or a feeling of peace and contentment which usually means your angels are nearby.

You can also acquire unpleasant feelings such as a pain in your body, which is often experienced by mediums when they are giving a reading to confirm to the person they’re working with the veracity of what they are receiving from the spirit world.

There is also clairgustance which means clear tasting.  I have had this very occasionally and again it is something that mediums often experience when giving readings.  This is when you can get a taste in your mouth of something that someone in the spirit world wants to give as a confirmation signal, such as a taste of a particular food.

You can also catch a scent of angels – a beautiful floral fragrance with a sweetness that is rarely found here on Earth – this is called clairscent.  Again, mediums often are given a fragrance by someone who’s passed over such as their favourite perfume or flower.

Which brings me to claircognisance.  This means clear knowing.

For me what this means is that something arrives in my mind, kind of like it’s in a box, which then rapidly unwraps itself in my head, Harry Potter luggage style!  Words tumble through my mind, or actions that I need to take or answers to questions I’ve asked.

I have occasionally seen my angels but I’ve had to work hard with their help to do this.  So they sent me a box and when it unpacked itself, it played itself like a film projecting onto my mind’s eye.

This is when I saw the Divine Fire inside an angel for the first time, and understood just how powerful they are, and why they tend to show up in a form that we are comfortable with.  In their true state they are just incredible – although as usual words don’t do them justice!

I also saw with my mind’s eye some of the Angels of Healing who stood all round my granddaughters when they were born prematurely in 2013, supporting their tiny bodies as they began their physical journey with us.  I could see huge channels of Divine Healing Light being poured into the girls, and by little Amelia’s incubator, one of the angels held a giant tube like item which pumped a really thick kind of white light into her, as she had more physical struggles after her birth than her sister Evie did.

The longer that I’ve worked with the angels and travelled my spiritual path, the more that I’ve been able to tune in to ALL of my psychic senses, and they are now pretty balanced.  So although claircognisance is my primary sense, I also hear, feel and smell my angels around me as well.

And this has also enabled me to sense the presence and messages of other beings in the spirit realm, such as Ascended Masters, Goddesses and spirit animals such as Unicorns and Dragons.

So if you have ever wondered why you can’t see angels, don’t despair – I can’t either!!  And this in spite of me being a very visual person – I have amazing peripheral vision and can see details in things that very few others can, especially when I take my glasses off and look at something closely ?

Just because you can’t “see” your angels doesn’t mean that you’re not receiving their guidance, it just means that the guidance is coming to you via another channel – so keep a “look out” for what that might be and relax knowing that you’re doing just fine using your other senses.

Much love

When I was desperate

Visualise, appreciate, focus

Over the past few weeks and months I have been really deepening my relationship with my angels, and with the Divine.  I have gone within like never before, and learned what hidden beliefs were standing in my way that were slowing down my progress and my message.

One of the big lessons that I’ve learned that has helped to catapult me forward was when I was talking with my angels one day about my finances, and about how whenever I “needed” more money it rarely appeared.


The angels showed me that the reason for this was because I was placing my trust and hopes on “the money” when they needed to be placed elsewhere.  They needed to be placed in God and the Divine Mind, not on “the money” (or the time or the energy or the opportunities or whatever else I perceived as being lacking in my life).

As I began to let go of this habit of pinning my hopes on outside things, and instead placed them internally, something really interesting began to happen.  I started to feel so much more fulfilled, at peace with myself and at one with the flow of Life.

When I looked at my outside, there was no change at all.  I was still “lacking” certain things, but on the inside I could feel their presence.  For a long time I’d read about this, heard about it and watched it come up in videos, and I wondered just HOW I was going to achieve this.

The How of It

How, I wondered, is it possible to feel the “presence” of something that is blatantly not there?  How do I feel as if I’m rich when my bank account tells me otherwise?  How do I feel like I’m radiantly healthy when I’m slumped in my chair feeling anything but?  How do I feel as though I have a part to play in the world, when nobody seems to be noticing me or my efforts?

I’m a details girl you see – I ALWAYS want to know the “how” of things.

So my angels helped me to change this habit – but they did it indirectly!  They took my attention away from the things that were “absent” and instead turned it more frequently to the things that were “present”.

For example, they helped me notice that when I thought I was far from my dream of living in the country, I am actually instead very close to it.  Each and every day I get to walk in beautiful peaceful woodland countryside, surrounded by the fields and dotted with cattle and horses.  I may not be able to see all this from my bedroom window (yet!), however I get to live it and experience it every single day just as I would if I were living in a cottage in the country.  So I’m already living the dream I have, the only thing that needs to change is my geographical location – the rest is already there in my life!

Focus on Service

The angels helped me to gradually focus more and more on my service to the world.  They guided me unfailingly to the right people, resources and opportunities to clear my limiting beliefs, to become more confident, to find the message that resonates with me, to the financial resources that could help to open doors, to trust my intuition and feelings completely, to follow the steps I was shown.

And as they did that, my relationship with myself changed and became one of love.  I started to see opportunities to help people even though I wasn’t going to be paid directly to do so.  For a long time, I was focused on the lack of money in my life and I became desperate.

  • When I was desperate I would write blog articles and hope that people would share them. They didn’t.
  • When I was desperate I would pray for more money to come. It didn’t.
  • When I was desperate I would give grudgingly and with expectations of the giving being returned to me. It wasn’t.
  • When I was desperate I wanted to be able to instantly manifest things like cheques in the post. They didn’t.

I tried everything I could think of to try and get more people to hear my message.  And the more desperate I became, the more they stayed away in droves.  It wasn’t until I became completely immersed in being of service that things started to shift rapidly for me.

All Change!

Once I made that internal shift amazing things started to happen

  • People spontaneously shared things I’d published
  • I asked for – and got – a raise in my day job rate
  • I reached out to people to see if I could share my message through their audience – and got a yes
  • I manifested thousands of pounds worth of free gifts and online resources
  • People began signing up to my newsletter list again
  • I reconnected with friends from my schooldays
  • I found affordable Argentine Tango dance lessons nearby (another dream fulfilled!)
  • I started discussions in Facebook groups that got lots of interaction
  • I found numerous ways I could offer small services to people for free

Once I began to see that it was my service that mattered, not my words, my world turned around and the riches of the Universe began to pour out onto me.

So if you’re looking to shift something in your life that at the moment you believe to be absent, spend time focusing on the things that are present already.  Then as you get used to those feelings of presence you can spread them to the parts of your life that you want to expand more – your health, your spirituality, your finances, your relationships.

Remember as always to ask your angels for help with this – and they will guide you instantly to the right places, people and opportunities, even if it seems a bit oblique!

Much love

I can’t ask the angels for help with THAT!

Angels love to help!

When I first started working with the angels back in 2002-2003, I believed that I could only ask them for help under certain conditions

  1. When I was in deep doo doo
  2. To help me with my quest for spiritual enlightenment
  3. If it was something “small”

And it took me more than 10 years to let go of those beliefs!  So I only asked the angels for help very occasionally.

For a long time I believed that I had to lurch from crisis to crisis in order to get help from the angels, but eventually they helped me to shed that belief, and so my life began to become smoother and smoother.

Which meant that condition #1 was no longer applicable ?

Spiritual Development is fine

When it came to my spiritual and personal development, I was very happy to ask the angels for help – could they guide me to a book that would help?  A workshop?  Clients for readings or healings?  This latter one I struggled with a bit – because of my severely limited beliefs around the topic of money, which thankfully I’ve now healed and cleansed ?

I felt ok to ask the angels for these types of things because they fitted in with my seeing them as part of the Divine Mind, so this would mean that they wouldn’t have to help me with my secular work/life.  I wouldn’t be taking them away from “important” tasks or offending them by asking for help in my daily life.

Can you help with my daily life, angels?

Gradually though, through my reading and studying and working with the angels, I realised that helping me in my daily life was *exactly* what the angels wanted to do!  They wanted to see me happy and content, and that meant making my day to day living experience a good one too.

I also felt ok asking for help with little things like parking spaces (handy when you went to places like Alton Towers or big shopping malls ? ), what to have for dinner (the angels have unlimited access to cookbooks and recipes!) or what to do with my time when I had a choice of options (the angels always choose an option that makes me feel good).

What about the big things – especially the things that are broken?

Ask them for help with the BIG things?  No I couldn’t do that.  Help with my finances?  No way José!  Improve my diet?  Uh-uh.  Change my beliefs?  Pull the other one, it’s got bells on it!

And so for a long time I really struggled with my angel relationship.  It was stop-start, stop-start, stop-start.  It wasn’t ever on the part of the angels that things stopped either – that’s an impossibility and against Divine Law.  But I didn’t know that at the time.  I just saw things getting better and all but said – ok angels, I can handle it from here.

The Breakdown (I mean Break THROUGH)

Of course I couldn’t really, and when things got difficult or my emotions boiled over or my life spun out of control, I would once again turn to my angels for help.

Then eventually my life sunk to its lowest ebb in 2011-2012 when everything I knew and cherished and adjudged myself to be vanished from my life one after the other.  Marriage.  Home.  Children.  Business.  Finances.  All of it disappeared in one form or another in the space of 16 months.  And so I broke, quite literally.

And that’s the point at which I learned there is literally *nothing* you can’t ask the angels for help with.  They quite literally saved my life when I was not merely contemplating suicide, but actively planning how I would do it.

That’s the point at which the tiny battered part of me that was still hoping that things could get better reached out to the angels and asked them to help guide me back to a life where I could feel and be happy again.  Where there was colour in the world, not just black, white and shades of grey.  Where I could feel light and not weighed down by a heaviness that shrouded me in darkness.

Help me… with everything please

So yes, in hindsight this was still asking for help with the big things (rebuilding my life) but it also gave me a chance each and every day to ask for help with the littlest things.  Please help me have the energy to shower today.  Please help me to wear a pretty dress today.  Please help me eat the right foods to boost my energy.  Please help me to hear you clearly.  Please help me cross the road safely.  Please help me to deal with this paperwork today.  Please help me start writing again.  Please help me remember the dreams I had as a child again.  Please help me get enough money together to get through this week.

And as each of these requests was answered and as I grew more confident in hearing and following my angels’ guidance, slowly and surely my life began to get better.  My finances began to improve.  My family relationships began to improve.  I began to answer the call of my life’s purpose (but it took me several years and false starts to really answer that call, as I wanted so badly to be “accepted” and I didn’t think that being an angel teacher would lead to that).  My mental, emotional and spiritual health recovered.

Helping and Healing others

Often my clients and members of the Academy start off their angel journeys in the same way that I did – by believing that they can only ask for help with the emergencies, the inconsequential things or the spiritual things.  Which means that when they need my help, I have a vast resource of memories and experiences to fall back on to help and guide them.

Nowadays, there’s *nothing* I don’t ask my angels for help with!  If my finances need a boost I ask for help with bringing me new students for the Academy or members of my group programmes.  If I want to extend my reach and take the messages from and about the angels to a wider audience, I ask for help.  If I want my health to improve, I ask for help.  If I want to tend my garden, I ask for help.  If I want to wake up earlier, have more energy, eat better, clean the house more effectively… I ask the angels for help.

And that help is instantly and freely given ?

My Key Words for 2017

So when it came time to choose the words that I would work with this year back in January, I chose the words Faith and Trust, because by keeping those two words front and centre of all that I do, I have grown and expanded my life exponentially since the beginning of the year.

My angels have shown me where to place my faith and trust, and it’s not in the things of this world.  It’s not in the money or the house or even my life purpose.  By placing my trust and faith in the Land of the Divine, all that I dream of can and will come true.  In ways expected and unexpected.

So if there’s something you need help with, but think the angels can’t help because it doesn’t seem big/spiritual/hard/[fill in the blank] enough, be willing to change that thought.  Because they almost certainly CAN help.  They’re just waiting to be asked ?

I only think pure positive thoughts

I only think pure positive thoughts

The angels often bring things to my attention about my thoughts and about how people around me think.  Recently they’ve brought the topic of positive thinking to my attention, and I’ve seen so many different people also talking about it, that I felt inspired to put fingers to keyboard.

As you walk your spiritual or personal development path, you will come across lots of teachings about focusing only on what you want, on eliminating negative thoughts and beliefs and that you shouldn’t give in to harsh emotions such as anger, resentment, guilt or shame.

And so whenever you begin to consciously choose your thoughts and find yourself thinking angry thoughts or feeling deep resentment, you immediately berate yourself and try and put a gloss on it.

  • “Sending them love and light” said through gritted teeth with a fixed smile as you remember being let down by a friend
  • “I don’t get angry anymore, I’m on a spiritual path” thought as you remember your spouse putting you down in front of your friends
  • “I’m above behaving in such a manner” you respond inwardly as someone cuts you up in traffic

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that having positive thoughts is a bad thing – it’s not.  It’s a very wonderful thing.  And in fact *most* of the time these days I rarely have negative thoughts.  But that’s because I’ve done something about those negative thoughts, and I’ll share what I’ve done in a moment, because I know it will help you too.

Putting a gloss over negative thoughts and emotions is a bit like spending hours in the garden planting new flowers, giving your hands a quick wash and then putting nail varnish on your nails to disguise the dirt buried under your nails.  You might not be able to see the dirt, but the dirt is still there.  And will remain there until you clean it out.

Whenever you find negative thoughts, limiting beliefs or old behaviour patterns emerging, it’s not something to berate yourself about, it’s a sign that you’re ready to let go of those things.  You’ll never completely rid yourself of negative thoughts, but you certainly can remove at least 95% of them.

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve found dozens of old limiting beliefs surfacing, many of them the vestiges of work that I’ve done previously.  I’ve had some old beliefs such as these surfacing recently

  • That putting the heating on is being profligate with my money
  • That *not* putting the heating on is being a scrooge
  • That being self employed has put me in a foolish position financially
  • That I can’t move to the area I want because I feel judged financially by the people living there
  • That I’m different to everyone else, and that I’ll always be an outsider
  • That there’s nowhere I *can* move to where I’ll be accepted

(Can’t win with the first two can I?!)

All of these beliefs were hidden from me consciously – and they’ve been shaping my actions and thoughts without me realising.  So here’s how I deal with them

  1. I imagine sitting down for a cup of coffee with a friend
  2. I invite my angels to join us
  3. I imagine pouring out my heart to my friend, imagining our entire conversation from start to finish
  4. As the conversation progresses, my angels will bring to my attention anything I’ve just said to my friend that is holding me back, is a limiting belief or that shapes my behaviour
  5. As I grasp the truth of what the angels are showing me, I say to them “I release this to you angels, for healing”
  6. I feel a weight lifting off my shoulders
  7. I spend a few moments enjoying this feeling of being free and weightless
  8. I review the situation I was explaining to my friend and see if the conversation needs to continue
  9. If it does I keep on explaining more and more to my friend and letting go of all the things that are holding me back
  10. Once I feel that everything that needs to be released today has been released, I thank my friend and my angels and go about my day.

I can do this anywhere, anytime.  But most often I do it while walking my dogs in the woods in the morning, when my mind is fresh and alert and the day is just beginning.

As I release all my old thoughts, it’s amazing how quickly the Universe will send me new things to fill the space of the old things, and the life I’ve always dreamed of begins to materialise before my very eyes ?

Much love

Tiny actions that make a big difference

So yesterday I mentioned that I’ve been into taking small environmental actions for many years. My interest in the environment began when I was in my early twenties and occasional articles began appearing in newspapers and magazines about the impact the human race was beginning to have on our amazing planet.

So I kept on reading/studying/learning and discovered the types of small things I could do that could have a positive impact on our planet. Things like:

  • switching the water off while cleaning my teeth

  • re-using wrapping paper

  • using cleaning products that don’t harm the environment

  • removing meat and other animal products from my diet

  • creating my own meals from scratch instead of buying factory made ones

  • using public transport/walking/riding a bike instead of using the car

I also taught my children to do the same sorts of things as well, and they’re now teaching these things to their children too (with a little help from grandma 😉 ).

If we want to wake up each morning and enjoy the sun shining, the wind blowing, the feel of the earth under our feet, then we each have to do our small bits.

Did you know for example that if every office worker used just one less staple per year we could save 120 TONS of steel?! All by using just one less staple… And just remember this when you rip a staple out and stick it in the bin instead of the recycling container!

These tiny, insignificant steps can add up to a whole heap of love for our planet and the environment. And as you start to work with these kinds of changes, they often start to ripple out into other areas of your life too – especially your psychic skills and intuition.

As you become more determined to make a difference, so the spiritual world will open up and welcome you too. You’ll start noticing things that you’ve never noticed before – the scent of a flower as you walk past, the beauty of a tree in its autumn splendour, the sound of the wind blowing in your garden, a rose shining in a neglected garden.

I’ve learned that only way to make true progress in my spiritual journey is to make tiny little changes and make them a consistent part of my life.

And there’s been a tiny little mental change that I’ve made recently and that’s beginning to ripple out into my life.

I’ve started to see myself, truly see myself, passionately see myself, as being a teacher and not a coach. As being a teacher and not a mentor. As being a teacher and not a business owner.

I’ve come to realise that when I started calling how I earn a living as being a business owner, rather than being self employed, I started to scare myself (although it took me a loooonnnngg time to realise this). And this is when my bookkeeping work started to dry up and I’ve never been able to regain that level of income.

And because I was calling myself a business owner and not a teacher, I couldn’t attract the right people, and I couldn’t find my groove and I couldn’t make the differences I want to. I was teaching people how to grow a business (and helped a lot of people) but I don’t truly know how to grow a proper business, because I’ve never owned a true business, I’ve only ever been a single self employed person,no matter how many times I gave myself the label of business owner.

But now that I’ve truly accepted being a teacher, I can now see opportunities to teach people about the things that I’m most passionate about – angels, living your life purpose, crystals, spiritual senses, intuitive guidance.

I can now stop trying to shoehorn my teaching ability in the wrong areas and to the wrong people. Instead I can now open myself up to my true calling and follow that path blissfully and in full confidence and trust.

So now it’s your turn – what have you been trying to shoehorn into the wrong container in your life?

Trees really can talk to each other

Did you know that trees really can communicate with other? That they have family networks? That there are mother trees that care for their daughter trees?

I intuitively knew all this and then I found this incredible talk on Ted a few weeks ago.

Scientist Suzanne Simard began experimenting with whether it was possible that trees communicated with each other, and how they did so. By injecting a radioactive isotope into the soil around certain trees, she was then able to monitor the spread of that isotope.

She carried on theorising and experimenting and discovered that if a young tree was ailing or struggling in some way, its mother tree would send extra nutrients to it through the network of roots underground.

I have always loved being in and around trees, they are some of the wisest beings I have ever come across. Being in a woodland, especially one that hasn’t really been “managed” is a magical experience.

I often start my walk under the trees feeling anxious and worried and scared (especially if things aren’t working out the way I want them to) and leave feeling calm and centred and with a plan of action to deal with my erratic emotions.

The intricate network that exists between the trees, the soil, the flowers and plants, the animals and the weather creates an environment that is nourishing and wholesome, one that human beings greatly benefit from.

We benefit from the trees’ ability to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. We benefit from their bodies being turned into everything from floorboards to paper to furniture. Without trees, much of our modern life would exist.

Without trees, ancient sailors would not have been able to explore river systems and then the oceans. Without trees, our atmosphere would be difficult to breathe. Without trees, Victorian England would have choked to death on the smog it created.

I have been acutely aware of the network of roots that plants create below the soil as I’ve been renovating my back garden over the past few weeks. As I’ve been turning the soil over and removing the roots, there are times when I close my eyes and all I can see are images of plant roots.

And that got me to thinking how like the roots of plants and trees are to the neurons and nerve networks in our own bodies. How, just like the roots of a tree bringing nutrients and nourishment to the rest of the tree, our cells do the exact same thing.

How peoples’ brains are connected to each other – as can be seen when you realise someone is walking towards you so you step to the left, and they step to the right; so you step to the right and they step to the left, and you both end up laughing and saying something like “Great minds think alike!”

Our entire planet and way of living are all interconnected and if we don’t do something about creating more and greater harmony, then we risk losing everything we’ve got.

I’ve spent most of my adult life finding ways in which I can reduce/minimise/eliminate the harm that I cause to our planet. I began recycling as soon as there were ways to recycle packaging because I’d realised long before that just carting everything away and dumping it in holes in the ground is unsustainable – sooner or later we’re going to run out of holes in the ground to fill with our rubbish. Not to mention that the methane gas that is given off is also extremely damaging tom our world.

And the connections between people and life don’t end here on our planet, they also go beyond us and into the spiritual realm as well. Connections between people and angels, people and members of their family who’ve passed over, connections between people and spiritual masters who once walked this plane.

There is nothing we can do that doesn’t impact somebody somewhere. Every time we turn on a tap, switch on a light, put the gas fire on, we’re impacting our planet and our environment.

And I don’t know about you, but I love this world that we live in. And I know that every tiny action we can take to make this planet a bit better, a bit more beautiful and a lot more connected, will have massive results in the future.

A few moments of care taken today to do something that will reduce our impact on the world means that our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will get to enjoy the same sights and sounds as we do – and not just in some history book.

The Law of Diminished Intent

When you set your mind on doing something but find that you stop short of doing it, it can be hard to find the motivation to continue.  Setting goals is great when your energy is high and the magical feeling of new things is in the air.

As you set the goal, you’ll set smaller sub-goals and you’ll set deadlines.  However what can happen is that when the deadline for the sub-goal comes up, you can find yourself shying away from doing the work necessary to achieve the goal.

What happens is that there’s an intention/time graph that comes into play.  And it works like this:

The longer the gap you leave between when you set a goal and achieving it, the less likely you are to make the effort to get there.

It’s called the Law of Diminishing Intent.

In my work as a mentor for my local Chamber of Commerce, I’ve seen this Law come into play many times.  As I’m working with someone to set up their business, the longer the time between when they start working with me and the starting date of their business, the less likely they are to actually do anything about it.

And if they don’t even have a start date in mind, then it’s even less likely to happen.

I’ve worked with women with amazing ideas for businesses that could change lives and make a real difference in the world, but who never even got off the starting blocks because of the Law of Diminishing Intent.

When they conceived the idea, it was fabulous.  They were full of inspiration, enthusiasm, motivation and excitement.  But then once they started to put it into action, up came the usual suspects – blocks and delays and hidden obstacles.

What once seemed simple and straightforward suddenly seemed a problem.  What was once easy and flowing, becomes hard and stagnant.  The energy leeches out of them and their idea.

Sometimes self doubt and lack of self confidence also stands in the way.

I’ve also seen women dream of going to live somewhere new – by the sea, or in the country, or on a mountainside – and then at the last minute change their mind because the intention that they once had has diminished and shrunk.

One of the hardest things in the world is to set goals and stick to them.  It’s sooooo much easier sometimes to forget about the goals and just keep on keeping on.  I’ve done it myself.

I set a goal for when I would increase my income to such a level that I could come off benefits and pay my own way.  I gave myself a period of 9 months to achieve that so that I could create a sustainable income instead of the stop-start that I was accustomed to.

And at the end of the 9 months, I was indeed in a place of being able to do that.  But when it came to making that phone call I kept putting it off, and putting it off and putting it off.

Finally I realised what was happening – the Law of Diminishing Intent was at play!  So I spent most of a day visualising myself making that phone call.  I visualised picking up the phone, calmly and with confidence.  I visualised what I’d say.  I visualised everything going smoothly.

Then I went to pick up the phone.  And I couldn’t do it.

So I left it another while and re-did my visualisation.

And still I couldn’t do it.

I repeated my visualisation – and reminded myself of times where I’d taken my courage in both hands and done something to get myself out of my comfort zone.

And the third time I went to make the phone call, I managed it.  The first call went smoothly and afterwards I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders.  The second call took much longer than expected, and my phone kept cutting out, but having got that far, sheer determination took me to the end!

And after that second call, I couldn’t stop smiling and felt such a sense of relief.  No more having to watch my income, no more having to play down my skills and abilities.  No more sense of someone watching over my shoulder.

It would have been very easy to allow the Law of Diminishing Intent to have its way and to not make that phone call.  But that would have meant that I wasn’t living in integrity with who I am and what I’m here to do.  How could I be a true leader of women if I didn’t face up to those difficult (but right) actions?

In the end it’s the deep inner commitment to my journey as a leader and creator that pushed me to make that phone call.

And I came out the other side smiling 🙂

You can’t be what you can’t see

I was listening to Tara Mohr’s book Playing Big recently and she talked about a popular meme You Can’t Be What You Can’t See.

It came into being to mark the fact that women are still absent from many walks and echelons of life and business.

The meme is interpreted to mean that one of the reasons for this is that younger women don’t see older women in the boardrooms and on the hustings of the most influential areas of modern life – business and politics – and so therefore are less likely to aim for these levels of success themselves.

The reasoning also goes that not every woman wants to be a trailblazer into areas that have been traditionally dominated by men.

However, for the women trailblazers that have already reached these places, they got there precisely because they could see what they wanted to be, even though there wasn’t anyone else in their circle who had already made it there.

Women up and down the country and around the world are becoming trailblazers, but not necessarily on the public stage.  There are now tens of thousands of girls, young women and mature women who are being the first in their family/community/country to reach certain levels of success.

  • Being the first to complete basic schooling in their village
  • Being the first to go to university or college in their family
  • Being the first to become a doctor, lawyer, electrician, business owner in their village/town

And they got there partly because they were surrounded by people who believed that it was not only possible, but essential that they do so to encourage others to do the same, but because deep inside them they could see themselves succeeding.

I was the first person in my family to go to university – my mum couldn’t see the point of me even aiming to go to university as, in her words, once you have children your life is over.

However, I was blessed with going to a brand new high school in my community, a high school that was staffed with young, ambitious teachers (although to us of course, they were all old!).

Those teachers were often female and had had a great battle to get their teaching degree – for them it had taken great courage to go to a male dominated university and get their qualifications.  Many of them had never married and never had children of their own, because they knew that to do so would have meant the end of their ambitions in the workplace.

So the female students in my year were encouraged to think of getting good grades and moving on to study at university, as if it was something normal and everyday.

Towards the end of my schooling however, I fell off the rails somewhat and ended up leaving before I could get my A levels and then had two children in quick succession at age 18 and 19.  However, as the children began to get near nursery age, it became apparent to me that my then husband was never going to the be the provider I wanted and needed, so I knew that I had to do something about it.

And I also knew that the only way to get us out of the poverty we’d ended up in was for me to be able to jump a few levels by getting my degree.  So at t
