Achieving an Energy Balance

img_2192One of the themes that came up today in my Reiki Reresh group was how often we get our energy out of balance. Achieving the harmony between Spirit, mind and emotions that keep us in a healthy condition can be a challenge. That’s why I love to offer people a chance to receive Reiki and Earth ArchAngel energy.

ArchAngel Nushiel is the ArchAngel of Harmony in all things and is here to help us understand balance. She came into the session too so she could help me in achieving a balance in the healing energy being channelled in. I know that we are learning to think of ourselves as energy beings, with a physical body and an energy aura. It’s also important to understand how the aura can collect all sorts of low vibrational energy that creates dis-ease in the physical body. What I feel we notice less is how quickly our energy/body connection gets pulled out of alignment. Noticing this as soon as it happens is quite an achievement.

Yet I know it’s something we have to develop so that we can remove the mismatch and restore our wellbeing. My starting point has been to look at myself much more closely. So I try to notice every little thing around me. And every little thing within me. By placing my attention on the energy of small things I have started to see the imbalance in the energy of large things. I’m open to the intuitive information that Nushiel also brings to my attention. Sometimes it’s to do with the way I am thinking or feeling. Sometimes it’s about how others are behaving.

Paying attention makes achieving balance a lot more possible. Because as soon as I notice that I am off centre in any way I can use my Reiki to self-heal. Or I can ask for balancing energy from the Energy Beings who work with me.

They are happy to join in this process of rebalancing. They helped me to understand that I can connect with my intuition better when I am balanced. So that means I can get clearer messages much easier – a must if I want to be able to offer people that kind of service. I do know what they mean. On days when I’m feeling a little off par the connection seems like a mobile phone link. One that keeps cutting out, as if I was in a tunnel, and some questions I ask have to be repeated more than once.

On the days when I’m feeling centred within myself the information flows as fast as I can receive it. It’s accurate. There is significant content for the listener. And I don’t even have to ask any questions. I love those kind of days. To make sure I get more of them I check in with my energy every morning. If I feel sluggish or off balance I meditate to find the energy part of me that has drifted off. It could be that I have a cold, or aches. It might also be that I have drifted into negative thinking. Or that I wasn’t keeping my aura clear of other people’s energy.

Whatever the source of the energy drift I know that achieving balance again will only take a few moments. If I am willing to take action.

I guess that’s the point really. If I take rebalancing action as soon as I can there is less to consider later. Because I am sure we drift off balance quite a lot every day. Leaving energy to get stuck means a longer repair job. Especially if we are so out of alignment that our body is affected. I also,close every day by sending out healing to all those who wish to receive it. Balancing my energy means not just giving but taking too. Please join me in being open to receive that’s balancing, healing energy ?

Laughter Raises the Roof

imageOne of the most precious things we have is our ability to laugh. Laughter can shift even the most gloomy clouds. When I’m surrounded by  challenges that might bring me out of a positive mood I look for reasons to chuckle. Or giggle. Even just to smile a little.

Today has been a day full of laughter. There were smiles as everyone arrived at the Centre for the Reiki Refresh group. There were chuckles about the slight aches of my exercise exploits. And there was a burst of laughter when we heard my daughter’s loud chortles coming through the door. Laughter is both infectious and contagious. I know that if I smile some else will return that smile. It’s also true that when we laugh others can’t help joining in. When I do a message or a service I hope to share the chuckles. Or giggles.

That’s because I also know how much the Spirit World appreciates when we are happy. A laugh is an upbeat moment. If I can raise my vibration by appreciating the moment, the fun, the silliness, then I’m open to more of the same. It’s also true that a positive flow of feeling creates a ‘glow’ in our aura. That glow attracts the Spirits who want to communicate from their side of life. They love to bring more of that positive glow so that we are open to connecting with them. It’s because they want to share more love. I know that our loved ones want to boost the love that is around us. Even in our grief they want us to find the funny stories, the cheerful moments of memories.

If I can find the laughter even at the worst of times my loved ones know I will find the joy at the best of times.

I know it’s difficult to believe that my loved ones are there. Or it used to be. Now I have had so much proof, bit by bit, over and over, that I am sure they are there. In troubled times they have arranged for me to see the signs and signals that got me smiling again. Even when I wasn’t open enough to understand that they were communicating with me all the time. The signs were unmissable. They still are. I’m sure that whatever comes my way my Guides, family and friends on the other side will make sure I have a chance to laugh out loud. After all, they have connected me to people on this side of life who love to chuckle, chortle, giggle, guffaw and whoop.

Diary: Loving Myself Enough

13625373_10201848968303434_254503665621293958_nToday I bought my 2017 diary. The back of my current one is getting a bit messy as I try to sort out where I’ll be and when. Sometimes I have to smile. Actually my diary is only the potential where and when. The Universe may have a different plan!

That’s the fascination (and occasionally frustration) of living an intuitive life. I can diary something in for next week but there is no guarantee that I’ll be doing what I expect. It took me a while to get used to events and plans shifting around. Most of my life I’ve believed that it was important to control my days. To structure the chunks of time so that things got done. Yet I often had to change things around. I know that a part of that need to plan came from my Mum and Nanna. Monday was wash day. Tuesday was ironing day. Wednesday was cleaning the bedrooms … and on and on. It’s also from school. There is a timetable and lessons happen when the school thinks best not when you are at your best.

It’s the same with my working life. I guess I still cling to my diary there too. I know that it has been a slow journey from rigid working hours to working when I want. I’m going to show my age here, lol. In the 1980’s when computers suddenly became the thing to have in the workplace – all that modern technology – we worried that we would have too much leisure time. How would it be to only work 3 or 4 days a week. Or to, gasp, work from home. I find it really interesting that my freedom of working hours has come through working for myself rather than a shift in the way all work is organised. Though I still prefer a paper diary rather than the one on my phone!

Where does that leave me with time management? What am I putting in my diary? And perhaps what should I make sure doesn’t change?

I’m writing this during my Reiki Refresh session. Tonight no one else came. In my old working life I would have been stressing about that. Worrying if I had done something wrong. In my intuitive life I’m grateful that no one did come. I’ve treated myself to a lovely Reiki meditation and got some healing for me. And I can write my blog early for a change. That will give me more time to relax after another new beginnings day that was rather more stressful than I expected. I love being a Mum but sometimes the tough love is hard. The Universe understood perfectly. I got a chance to change my plans without any fuss or bother.

There is also another lesson that I need to notice. In my diary I have to have time for me. I find it hard to ignore when someone wants my time and attention. Or when I have business things to sort out. Yet I have to make sure that I have put time for me in my diary. Whatever else happens I have already blocked out my 2017 diary with my holiday weeks. I have restricted the number of church & centre services I can do. Finally, I have reorganised my working week from September this year to give me time away from work. If I choose to work at all hours of the day and night (that’s especially important when we have different time zones) there must be a balance of time off somewhere.

The key to my intuitive life is loving myself enough. Making sure that I understand my needs matter too. Giving but also being prepared to receive.

There is a lot of fear around the idea that we can be considered to be selfish. I know that the fear of that judgemental word pushed me to over compensate for a lot of my life. I took back very little of what I gave out. Even when people were desperate to give back to me. I see so many people doing the same. It’s wonderful that we care about each other. I love that it is in our nature to give rather than take. But there also has to be a balance. My Reiki Refresh is a way of letting people get used to receiving. I give. It’s something I love to do. Yet I’m happy to receive and in a roundabout way everyone who usually attends gave back to me tonight.

So whenever my diary changed unexpectedly I know that I will need that time. There will be something else I’m going to do. Something that will make perfect sense. A bit of giving or taking. An opportunity for me to look after me. I hope you can enjoy an intuitive life too. As I often tell myself ‘Go with the flow’.
