The Balance Procedure Workshop

Would you like a tool you can use everyday to bring balance into your life, to help creating the life you really want to overcome/release blockages – then this is the answer. Come and join me and learn all about a daily selfhelp tool called The Balance Procedure in this introductory workshop:

The Balance Procedure Introductory Workshop

On Monday 6th June  I am running a The Balance Procedure Workshop, where you will learn:

  • Your personal numerology of your date of birth and your current life year (eg creation, manifestation, foundation, clearing etc…)
  • Look at your astrological sign and what it means to you
  • Find out about The Balance Procedure, its links to numerology, colours, symbols, crystals, affirmations and the physical body
  • Carry out a Balance Check to see if you are in balance to all 9 cards and what anything out of balance might mean to you
  • Learn how to “balance” with the cards
  • Have a tool you can use every day, or specific action/issue as needed
  • When you leave you will have a tool you can use everyday, pack of TBP cards & book

What is The Balance Procedure?

The Balance Procedure is an energy technique, it comprises of a set of 9 cards all linked to affirmations, symbols, colours, numbers and a few other things! By holding the cards on your balance centre and using your body to dowse (move), you use the cards to balance yourself and check you are aligned to what you want to feel in your life. By asking yourself, “what do I want, how do I want to feel” and then balancing the answer, you are working towards your highest good. For example “I want to be healthier”, “I am healthy”. It’s all about your energy and your intentions

The price  for this workshop is £35 and includes The Balance Procedure Book, cards set (a normal consultation price is £49, so a saving of £14)

The Balance Procedure creating your reality

Cord cutting video

This is a short video explaining how I advise people to cut cords from people, past events and experiences.

Do you find yourself drained when around certain people and then exhausted when you get home or the next day? Do you feel out of balance some days and just can’t put your finger on it? Have you had a breakup but still feeling drained and attached to them? Do you work with people who exhaust you but don’t know why you feel this way? Want to change this, then watch this video and read on afterwards….

What is energy?

Its not about needing to eat to get some energy to do “stuff”, this is more spiritual yet very physical, This is about your energy being zapped by other people, whether those you know, work with or when out shopping or in busy environments. Think of how you feel when you go to a busy shopping centre, as functional as the shop might be, often you can feel quite drained and dysfunctional when you leave. All living things are made of energy and affected by the energy of those around them (intentionally or not). This session will help you become aware of your energy and be able to take positive action to protect and support yourself.

“Energy – protect, clear & reset”

From all my experience and qualifications, I have a brought together a one-hour session part training and part therapy, allowing you to learn techniques to protect, support and nurture your energy whenever you need it.

This Energy session looks at your  cutting cords that no longer serve your highest good, leaving those of love, clearing your aura with Aura-soma pomanders, creating a protective bubble so only those of love come through to you, checking and balancing your energy through crystals and finally hands-on energy healing to seal the changes into your physical body and aura.

You will learn how to protect yourself with bubbles, how to ground yourself into the now, cut negative cords, and a mini-introduction to self-healing.

This session is designed as a one-off (as you learn the techniques to use yourself) but can be used a a re-boost or re-set whenever needed. The session will last an hour and costs £45, it includes a small bag of chakra crystals and “memory” sheet of tips.

For more information and to book your session please contact me. It is also available as a workshop at the Gorge Therapy & Training Centre  click here for next dates

Choose your Angel Card Message!

I’ve just pulled 3 cards for a mini-card reading for you all. So please choose a card and then scroll down to get your message 🙂

Card choice for 28/2/16

Card choice for 28/2/16

This week’s card reveal from Doreen’s Virtue Angel Answers Oracle Deck:

Card 1 = Forgiveness – This card is about allowing forgiveness. It may be you need to forgive someone, an action or event in the past or maybe you need to consider accepting someone’s request for forgiveness.
Forgiveness means we stop sending energy to situations that have happened in the past, allowing us to move forward and no longer be controlled by the event. It doesn’t mean we are OK with what happened, just we no longer allow the event to define us and have control over us. Alongside forgiveness goes cord cutting – a very important but simple ceremony to release energy cords from others and situations that no longer serve us. I will record a short video on this and post a link on this post

It may also be that you need to forgive yourself – self-forgiveness. We are often overly hard on ourselves and the mistakes & choices we make in life. We are just humans doing the best we can in each situation. So if you chose this card you may like to think of an affirmation, or look at yourself in the mirror and forgive yourself. Looking into your eyes and doing “mirror work” is extremely powerful. An example might be “I forgive myself for my past choices and mistakes and use them as a lesson learnt in my present life”.

Card 2 = Meditation Brings the Answer
This card is about clearing some space in your life to allow your self to recharge and allow thoughts and ideas to become clear. Meditation is a wonderful practice but does take time & practice (like all new things we learn). Meditation helps to clear the “monkey mind”, the chatting and self-talk that happens ALL day every day. It allows space for clarity, for the body to heal and peace in your mind.
By focusing on your breathing or looking at a candle flame or crystal or picture you can enter this mindful meditative state. Mindfulness is all about being in the moment, the only time we can influence.
Spend some time either sitting quietly and counting your breaths in and out, if thoughts come through simply acknowledge them and let them go. Or go for a walk in nature and focus on nature and detail around you.
By clearing your mind you stop the logical mind from over analysing and allow the subconscious and dreamworld solutions to be heard and considered.
If you have never meditated before just try for one minute at a time. Don’t think you have to do it for 20 minutes first time!

Card 3 = Within the Next Few Weeks
This card is saying that the “thing” you are waiting for or manifesting is coming shortly (how exciting!). This may be an answer to a question you have been asking or a physical thing you have been focusing on.

Either way hang in there, keep focused and perhaps start planning the next stage 🙂

12 Steps to release the old and welcome the new 2016


Following on from my previous blog on 10 steps to calm, these steps are to recognise and release the advances, issues, successes you made in 2015 and welcome in the new possibilities of 2016.

You may ask why its take a couple of weeks for me to write and post this, but I’ve been going through this process myself. Over the holidays I tried to be more present with my children and not work (following my own advice!), so now I’m catching up and in a place to share. Also 2016 and resolutions is not just something we should do on one day, but it is an ongoing process – there is no late, too late or better late than never. Recognise that the perfect time for you to do this may not be 31st December or 1st January, it may actually be on your birthday, or on the 1st Feb when everything settles down and you have really thought about what you want to achieve in 2016.

These are the things I have been doing since 2015 ended and plan to continue doing into 2016. I hope you find some to add to your routines:

  1. Do a 12 card oracle card reading for yourself. Sit quietly and shuffle your cards and simply ask what you need to do in 2016, or what will happen in 2016 or what information your angels have to share with you about each month. However, you want to phase it. Then write down what you thinks, feel, what words and phases come through; maybe even take a photo of the card and put it in a word document. By creating a written document you are then able to review the previous month and see what is coming up for the next month. You may think you’ll remember but if you wrote it in January and then it happens in MArch – you have the proof that you said it was going to happen 🙂
  2. Write a letter to your 2015 self, share the successes, the could do betters and your goals and affirmations for 2016
  3. Write your goals for each quarter of 2016. For an action or activity to be a goal, you need to put what what the result should be and a deadline by it – otherwise its just a hope! Review the at the end of each quarter to see your progress and maybe adapt. Remember to congratulate yourself on any and all successes so matter how small.
  4. Join a supportive online network or physical (real life!) group. For example a women’s circle, spiritual development or bookclub (I’m starting some soon at the Gorge Therapy Centre) or if you live further away consider starting your own.
  5. If you have small children then aim to spend a dedicated amount of time playing with them or doing art or child lead activity each day after school. Break it into 2 x 10 mins or short 5 minutes focused play if easier to fit in around tea. But no phones, facebook or TV. Just sitting and cuddling whilst talking about the day or sharing a book can be really beneficial to you and your children. I know it all gets mad busy after school in our house, so I try and fit this in and feel better afterwards knowing I’ve done it.
  6. Start writing a gratitude journal – get a nice notebook and pen and then every day write x1 thing you are grateful for, again size isn’t important. By showing gratitude the universe will send you more of the same 🙂
  7. Morning Mutterings – have a 10 minute scribble every morning writing about anything in your mind, outpouring any thoughts present… then just bin it. It can really help clear the find of thoughts and what if cycles that can circle around
  8. To Do lists – this is a practice I am doing every day. At the start of the day over breakfast I spend 10 minutes  writing everything I need to do – in no order and without reference to how or when. then afterwards review it and prioritise, drop and action. Adding a big tick at the end of each completion!
  9. Gratitude jar (or tin/ box) – Get a jar or old chocolate tin and then regularly put things in to remember positives as they happen, eg pebbles/shells from a beach, money, kind words from people/clients, copy of cheques, an abundance cheque, crystals, coins, mementoes of 2016. Then at the end of the year go through the jar and review those successes and feel the pleasure from achieving goals or having fun on the beach.
  10. Presents not presence – your time can only be used once, so focus on what you want every day and be grateful for all positives
  11. Put yourself first regularly – if you are empty of energy then you can not give others energy – an empty watering can cannot water the plants to help the flowers grow if it is never refilled.
  12. Do what you love everyday. If you cant do it for a living then do it as a hobby. Be in touch with your joy and your sparkle – others will notice it and the ripple effect will happen

I hope you find these 12 steps useful, some may resonate with you and others not appeal at all and that’s fine. Do what makes you sparkle

Top 10 Tips to Support your Energy at this Festive Time of Year

Top 10 Tips to Support your Energy at this Festive Time of Year

Another blist (blog/list! – is this a thing?!) this time looking at how you can support your energy and sanity in this very emotionally & physically draining time of year! These are some tips to reboost

  1. Breathe  – breathe slowly in and out x 5; you can use colours (eg pink is for love, green to heal, blue to calm etc)
  2. Use Bach Rescue Remedy – suitable for most people and children. The spray is particularly useful, if not a drop in water or drinks for you and kids can really calm!!
  3. Lavender oil – use a diffuser or few drops on your pillow or bedding (or kids clothing!)
  4. Rose quartz crystals are great for calming and creating an atmosphere of love – love for others and self love. Give them a clean and charge then program for what you want them to do (see my older blog. Its a full moon on Christmas day so make sure you give them a clean and charge on your windowsill after a busy day 🙂
  5. Energy healing – sit quietly with hands on your solar plexus/ tummy or thighs and just allow the universal energy to flow (everyone can do this, no attunement needed). Use when watching TV – no needs to know 😉
  6. Writing – sit down and write what ever comes into your head – perhaps a letter to your future or past self or writing all the great things that have happened in 2015
  7. Write a channeled angel message. Sit quietly and breathe slowly and ask your favourite angel or guardian angel if there are any messages and then simply write everything down without analysing what you write.
  8. Cleanse your house, it may be vacuumed and dusted and mopped but energetically may need a cleanse too. Use an incense stick (or sage if you have any) and walk around the house holding the smoke in the corners and asking for the rooms to cleared energetically. Especially in the main rooms where loud talking occurs & kids bedrooms.
  9. Use oracle cards – pull a card a day or whenever you need a pickmeup message. Ask what message you need for that moment and then look at the picture at all the details which pop out at you and take all that comes into your mind as part of the message – then afterwards read the guidebook.
  10. Cord cutting – we all have tiny cords of energy joining us together – which is why we think f someone just before they call – these attachments however can link us to people from our past we no longer want around us, to people we work with or friends who you find draining after spending time with. So its important to be able to clear these negative links and keep the cords flowing with love. To cut your cords imagine a figure 8 and you are in one circle and everyone else in the other circle. Then ask Archangel Micheal (or do it yourself) cut the two circles apart and ask that only cord that are of love and for your highest good remain. This may need repeating daily if there is a long term drain. I will do a video on this as soon as my throat is better 🙂

In the meantime I wish you all the very best of the Season and hope you find space for calm for yourself and enjoy all that the season has to offer


love and Sparkle

Halloween special – how to protect your energy and space

As Halloween approaches many people start talking about the “veils” between our physical and spiritual worlds becoming thinner and communication clearer from those who have passed over. This is not always a comfortable time for many, so I thought I’d share a few techniques with you to allow you to protect your space and aura and to prevent lower energies from coming through.
A few simple techniques I will share include the use of protection cloaks, cord cutting, grounding, crystals and sprays.

protective crystals

1 – Protection cloaks are used to  protect our physical body and useful when going out into populated areas such as when shopping & work. Simply put you imagine a large cloak around your shoulders and draping across the floor with a collar and hood. You pull the hood over your forehead (protecting your third eye) and then zip the cloak up at the front to cover your throat. The cloak can be any colour your like, dark blue is a favourite as it brings in the protective energies of Archangel Michael, a violet cloak has the transmutation energies of the violet flame and St Germain or a metallic cloak can bring the energies of Archangel Metatron. The cloak will then protect your physical body and Aura. This can also be useful for children as well as adults

2 Cord cutting – this is the single most important and frequent thing I talk about to people! We all have energetic cords which join us to those we come in contact with from loved ones, family, friends and colleagues. It is important we regularly clear these cords so that only “those that are positive and for your best interest” remain. Do you often feel drained when in contact with someone and feel the same for days after, that’s because their cord is literally draining energy from you. The cord cutting is a whole blog by itself so I’ll do a more detailed one next week! In the meantime ask Archangel Michael to use his sword of truth to cut all cords that no longer serve you and so only cords of love remain. You don’t need to worry about cutting off family or loved ones, they will stay! If you have regular contact with someone who makes you feel drained then do this after every contact or thought and at least every day!

3 Grounding – It is so important to be grounded and present in the moment, not sending our energies into the past or future events, being mindful if you will. By being grounded in the present moment we stabilise our energies and are more able to protect where we send our energies. A simple grounding exercise is to stand (or sit) with both feet firmly on the floor and then gently ask the earth to ground you and imagine little roots gently spreading from your feet out into the ground. You don’t need to send them miles down or across, just a gentle spread on Mother Earth will be fine. If you feel yourself to be lightheaded or in need of additional grounding then stamping your feet can re-earth you (chocolate also works 😉 )

4 Crystals – There are a lot of crystals you can use to ground yourself, traditionally anything dark will work as it is closets to the earth star chakra. My favourite protection crystals are amethyst (also fab for the crown chakra and clearing negative energies), Hematite is very grounding and protecting too. Smokey quartz is also a great grounding and protective stone (as well as stress-busting too!), its great for grounding as it works with your earth chakra beneath your feet. Black tourmaline has the ability to absorb negativitity and create a positive clear energy around you. To use them I would program for protection and then either keep in pocket, wear as jewellery, meditate with them by your feet, place by bed or desk, hold before entering “the zone” where you feel protection might be needed! To use a crystal cleanse and program – read this blog for full details –

5 Sprays – I use the Aura Soma quintessences and sprays produced throughout the day for multi-uses. Aura Soma  sprays are great for clearing, protecting and energising your aura, house, room, space OR to up the vibration for meditation or focus. I particularly use them when going out to town shopping or if the children are in a delicate space when going to school (or home from school 🙂 ). My favourites for protection are the red, this draws your aura in so you don’t pick up on others energies and “they” don’t pick up on your lighter energies too. Lady Nada is all about love and when this is used it expands the aura immensely, but creates a space that only those coming from love can come through (again keeping the dodgy ones away!). Orange is a great one to use at home for house clearing, to remove stagnant energies throughout the house, especially in children rooms or thoughtforms left over from arguing!

So there you have my favourite tips for protecting your energy and space that you live in. Please contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to book on my “Energy protect, clear and reset” one to one or workshop
