well-being for everyone

Surrounded by Rainbows

I had the most magical experience driving home after I had been up North for the day. It had been moody all day, windy and overcast, which perfectly reflected how I was feeling. I’m channeling through lots of ideas and being guided about what I should be doing, and I was feeling a little overwhelmed by the task of bringing the idea into physical reality. I was feeling tired and I had a four hour journey ahead.

As I was driving it began to rain, and shortly after that the sun came out. Now, as a self-identified leprechaun who does a lot of work with the leprechaun guides, unicorns and reiki (all of which are associated with rainbow energy), I knew it was a sign when a huge double rainbow appeared stretching right from one side of the motorway to the other. I started laughing as soon as I saw it, and immediately asked “Is that my pot of gold to remind me that my abundance is here?!” The answer was a very clear and strong “Yes”, and at the same time both the rain and the sunshine got stronger. The double rainbow became a triple rainbow! Still laughing, I was filled with waves of gratitude and unconditional love. I felt joyful. It was amazing!

As if in response to my mood something fantastic happened – the sunlight began to create rainbows in the spray coming up off the road so that my car was surrounded by rainbow light! The only other time I’ve seen all around rainbows is at Niagara Falls, which was also a pure joy experience. These motorway rainbows stayed around my car for about half an hour, and the waves of love and joy and healing came with them. It was a full four feet or so of rainbow spray all around, with the triple rainbow overhead. I am so filled with gratitude for the experience, and I know that abundance is available to all of us when we are open to it and follow our guidance.

Rainbows are a sign of abundance from the fairies and unicorns, and show that they are with you and working with you. Other signs of fairies around you are dragonflies and butterflies, as well as fairy circles (circles of mushrooms or especially green grass). Just ask the fairies for help and they will be there to support you – though they may ask you to do something in return such as litter picking.

I wish you all kinds of fairy love, until next time xoxo

More mindfully and nutritiously

The angels have been nudging me to write about a couple of things in the last month or so, and I must confess to being rather slow in my actions!  This happens sometimes, that I’ll feel that messages I am being given are not only relevant to me and that Archangel Gabriel in particular is giving me that nudge to write and share what they’re telling me. At the beginning of March I began to receive very clear messages from Archangel Raphael (the Archangel of healing and travel) to take better care of my body and to concentrate on both exercise and nutrition to do this. Specifically there was the message to be mindful of what I was eating, why I wanted to eat it, and the effect different foods have on my body. For me this relates to sugar, because that has been the method I’ve used in the past to numb out my emotions and to feel safe. It follows on from a message I was given some time ago from Archangel Michael, to go to him when I need reassurance that I am safe and loved instead of reaching for a bag of doughnuts! At this time, now, after I’ve made working with Archangel Michael in this way my normal response, they felt I was ready to succeed at making real changes to my nutrition. Fast forward to mid-March, when I saw the first facebook post about the game where you just use the middle button on your phone and see what the predictive text comes up with. When my phone typed “The message for your good eat more mindfully and nutritiously”, that was my confirmation that I really was hearing that message from the angels correctly. It felt special then, there was a feeling of tremendous love flowing through me, and I reaffirmed to myself and my angels that I would continue to work on my nutrition. A few days later my fiance showed me the message her phone had typed and I shared my message with her, telling her how it had been so significant to me. It was during that conversation that I got the clear message that I should share their guidance about nutritious, mindful eating. They emphasised the mindful aspect of this to me, saying that it is important to eat the food your body needs and to know what that means for you. So to know if you need to be vegetarian or not, if you need to cut out sugar, or gluten, or cut down on some of these or others. This will be different for everyone and means that one task of mindful eating is to tune into your body to see what makes it feel good, and what fuels it well. What leaves your energy crashing after a few hours and what affects your mood. Keeping a diary of these correlations can help you to be mindful when you are making food choices (a great app for tracking mood, sleep, food, etc is Ginsberg).

Another part of mindful eating is to show your love and respect for your body by making fueling it an activity in it’s own right. What I mean by that is making an effort to concentrate on the act of eating, both as a physical sensation (the way you would concentrate on your breath in many methods of mindfulness meditation)  and by being aware of the food you are eating. Being aware of it’s nutritional value and your motivations for eating it. The last aspect they gave me is to tune into your feelings about the food you are eating. Is that doughnut a reward for doing something unpleasant, or a treat to yourself because you’re feeling sad? Is that apple a sign of your self love because you want to fuel your body with healthy foods? It can be a great act of self care to eat mindfully and nutritiously, and it was this part of the message that the angels emphasised to me most strongly. The mindful act of treating your body as the temple that it is and only allowing loving and healthful thoughts and foods to enter that temple. For truly your body is a temple, as it is the physical home for your own unique spark of divine light.

The other message they would like me to share is about music, and I have received the message several times recently along with the push to share it. The phrase they have used each time is that music is incense for your soul. So as you would burn incense in your home to clear the energies, you can use music to clear and recharge your soul. Their message regarding this is similar to their message about food, because they emphasised the need to be mindful of the music that you listen to. Is that music going to raise your energy and your mood? Or is it going to help you get in touch with feelings of anger, despair or sadness? Is the “scent” of this music what you want to feel right now and is it of benefit to your growth? Again the answer to this will be very individual. I always think of Abraham’s thought ladder when I ask myself these questions, and remember that my aim is to access the best feeling thought that is available to me. If I am in a place of hopelessness then anger is a step towards joy and that angry music will help me to connect with the feelings I need to process and release. But if I am in a space of joy or contentment, that same music will compress my energy and lower my vibration. So being mindful allows us to tune into our energy and know what will be beneficial for us at a given time. Being mindful allows us to connect with our soul energy and clear anything which is not helping us. This part of the angels message reminds us that picking out that music that is energetically nutritious is just as important as eating nutritious food. I hope that this message is as helpful for you as it continues to be for me, and would love to hear any comments or reactions from you on the facebook page.

Love and angel blessings,

Kat

Are you living as the candle flame, or the air around it?

fire2

The title may sound odd, but I’ll get to it.  This morning during my meditation I was contemplating a candle flame, which is not something I always do as I more usually use mantras and breathe work.  So.  Normally when I use a candle the flame is quite steady and the whole experience is peaceful and serine.  This morning was different.  This morning there was a breeze.

As I watched, pin-pointing my focus onto the candle flame, the flame began to bounce and circle.  The flame was twisting and turning as it was pushed by the breeze.  But a candle flame has many dependencies.  The candle flame needs air, but not so much that it is blown out.  The candle flame needs heat, but not so much that it burns out in moments.  The candle flame needs fuel, it’s wick, but not so much that it cannot heat the fuel.  If any one of these conditions is not met the candle flame will die.

How like this are our ego-selves?  Our personalities believe we need so much just to exist.  We need certain relationships, a well respected job, a string of qualifications or the new must-have item.  We need to catch that episode of our favourite TV show, or go to a specific gym class at a specific time, otherwise our very existence is threatened.  Just like the candle flame we twist and turn within the trap of the dependencies our ego “needs”.  Always trying to escape change, to move away from the breeze, but never able to move away from our position because there are too many things we need that we can only get right here (physically, mentally and spiritually).  We grasp onto what is familiar without realising that in truth…

we are not the candle flame.

We are the air around it.  Truly we have no dependencies, we simply ARE.  Our physical bodies are like the candle flame – they need food and air and warmth.  But we are so much more than our physical bodies.  Truly, we are a perfect divine spark of the oneness that infuses all things.  As that spark we rely on nothing, and that is our true existence.  We live in the illusion of our candle-world, but in reality all things are within us including our physical selves and the world around us.  The air around the candle flame feeds it, giving it the air it needs to survive.  Our true being gives our bodies that same sustenance, infusing our bodies with love, abundance and healing.  Living without an awareness of this traps us in the candle-world, endlessly threatened by outside influences that appear beyond our control.  But with awareness of ourselves as the breeze that moves the flame, then we can steer our lives towards joy and fulfillment and peace.  Then we can embrace change as something we have brought ourselves (even when this is not obvious and our flame-self feels threatened and afraid) in order to rise towards a fuller life and follow our bliss.

So how are you living?  Are you living as the candle flame, or the air around it?

Saluting Women – International Women’s Day at Havering College

On Saturday 8th March Havering College ran a “Saluting Women” event for International Women’s Day, where we had a stall offering free taster Angel Card Readings and Reiki healing sessions.  It was predicted that about 400 people would attend on the day and this was certainly reflected in how busy we were!

We arrived nice and early, set up the stall, and cleared the space using the “Perfect Peace” vibrational spray from K.S.C Crystals and my Ting Sha.  Here is a photo my wonderful partner Katie took of me on the stall.

About 10 minutes after the event started we began taking bookings for the 5 minute Angel Card Readings and 15 minute reiki sessions I was offering.  Well I say we, but really Katie expertly managed all of the bookings, coordinated people, and let me know when I needed to wrap things up if I got carried away (which happened a few times!).  I couldn’t have done it without her.  Over the course of four hours I gave sixteen Angel Card readings and thirteen reiki healings – by the end of all that I was floating on cloud nine!  It was a very special day with readings that really touched a chord with people and reiki sessions which were truly beneficial.  We also handed out lots of 50% off vouchers so I’m really glad they’ll provide an opportunity to have a reading or a treatment, especially to those who might not otherwise be able to afford one at this time.  Thank you to everyone who visited the stall, you are all truly wonderful and I loved working with you.  I look forward to seeing you again soon.  A brilliant event that I look forward to taking part in again next year.
