Scent, smell & fragrance

imageClairallience is the intuitive or psychic sense of smell. It is possible to pick up scent from Energy Beings when there is nothing physical to cause that smell. Clairallience has been on my mind, so to speak, all day. Today I’ve been to a passionately positive meeting with my PartyLite colleagues to hear about our next fragrance product range and the changes that flow naturally from having a new Chief Executive in charge of this global company. I have to confess I had never heard of Harry Slatkin but for a candle company very proud of it’s fragrances he seems to be the ideal leader. He is also considered to be someone who can identify the component parts of fragrances completely accurately. Not an easy task and similar to trying to identify all of the flavours used in a complex wine or meal.

We were discussing the top, middle and low notes (what you smell first, second and last, so to speak) of the new scents which have about nine or ten different smells to make these three ‘layers’ of fragrance. Sorting out each component smell, for me, is made much harder now since I lost my physical sense of smell at the end of last year. Imagine that – someone who loves scented candles but who can’t smell them! Yet I do have clairalliance. When I give messages the Spirit people often bring me fragrances that identify them from their lifetime. I can still small cigarettes, freisa, lilies, cigars, beer and many more. They are not in the air around me. The scent comes through my aura connection in the energy rather than through my nose.

On another strand of thought I have to say it’s fascinating that I have worked with Jan Booth at Ostrich Angels to develop a range of fragrance sprays, candles and soaps. Our work on the Pearls of Wisdom and the Earth’s ArchAngels was done when I could smell. We used only two fragrances in a combination to represent what was being channelled in. Although I could smell them I had no idea how the combinations came about really because I wouldn’t say I have a particularly well developed sense of smell. Then when it was time to put the fragrances together for the Transpersonal Chakras I had no physical sense of smell at all. Jan says the fragrances are wonderful but I honestly have no idea. I’m sure that I was guided to the best combinations as for brief moments during the 10 mins it took to pull the scents together I was getting slight wafts of scent psychically.

As humans we tend to ignore our ability to smell most of the time. Our sense of smell is one of our earliest survival mechanisms as young babies can smell more than see. However, we don’t like unpleasant smells so we cover them with fragrances to make everything smell fresh or clean or appetising or mysterious. Certain smells evoke memories. Others are too sharp or bitter to bear. Once we realised we could change the scents around us the perfume industry was born. And it’s been around an incredibly long time. Then we realised that certain fragrances made us feel safe or energised or relaxed or calm. So now we use candles and sprays all of the time to create ambience. That’s why I use PartyLite candles in my Centre. People always love the way the rooms and corridor smell. They make positive comments and feel more at home because the scents are reassuring.

So another train of thought is how our physical sense of smell ties up with our psychic sense of smell. It seems that I might no longer be able to distinguish top, middle and bottom notes in fragrances that I love from PartyLite or from the ranges I have put together for Jan. Whether this will ever be reversed is a moot point. I am left with the ability to determine fragrances in a very different way. I wonder if this change is to help me refine my psychic ‘nose’? Is there something important that will need me to be able to use clairallience instead? An interesting journey seems to be coming along then!

If you are interested in developing your psychic sense of smell a great way to start is to ask your Guides for help. Ask them to help you become aware of scents that are around from the Spirit people. I am sure they will make sure you start receiving ‘scent’ information so pay attention and don’t dismiss little blasts of fragrance when they tickle your nose. As for me, I am looking forward to my next exciting scent adventure with Jan.

Annie’s Angel Art

TiphonielIn the Centre I have an Angel Healing wall. It’s a space that has grown itself somehow & it seems to keep expanding. I originally started with a branch that I made into a healing tree. I encourage people to hang the names or something on the tree so I can send out Distance healing when I do my Reiki meditation. The tree is my focus point to connect with all who need positive energy. It is actually based on a long tradition of Celtic Cloutie or Wish trees.

When I began to channel in the Earth’s ArchAngels I was inspired to create their energy pictures. These abstract pieces link directly with the vibration of the specific ArchAngel so that there can be a transfer of energy from them to us. They are concerned to help us boost our positive energy so that we can make progress in our spiritual journey. They are also a source of great healing energy. So it’s no surprise really that they also brought in more and more representations of angels to be around my tree. I have angel figures, ranging from very large to tiny, angel feathers and angel pictures. There is the collage with acrylic paint I did to remind me of my Dad, the print my friend Sarah gave me, a picture drawn by a 6 year old visitor and, today, a print of a sky angel from my lovely friend Peter.

So today I want to share the painting I’ve done of ArchAngel Tiphoniel along with the words she gave me for our Facebook page. The page is a collaboration with Jan Booth of Ostrich Angels. Both of us are working to bring more of the Earth’s ArchAngels energy into the world. We feel very strongly that these 12 energy beings are here to improve our whole world. They bring loving encouragement, wisdom and clarity to what often seems like hectic, hurly burly daily life. Most of all they bring healing energy. They want us to be aware that we can heal ourselves if we choose to. Please take a moment or two, read carefully and discover Tiphoniel’s wisdom for yourself.

Mother Love is in the air! When things get busy, stressful or full on we often forget to allow ourselves time & space. We forget that we need nurturing too. Earth’s ArchAngel Tiphoniel is directly connected to the flow of Divine Feminine energy. She is a warm and comforting presence bringing you nourishment for your Spirit.

When she comes to call she has a ‘basket’ of goodies to treat you. She is ready to sooth all of your hurts & fears. Whatever you feel you are lacking she will bring you with a sweep of positive, loving energy. If you are angry she will cool the flames; if you are sad she will dry your tears, if you are lonely she will sit with you; if you are hurt she will dress your wounds; and, if you are frightened she will reassure you.

She is a creative force too. She can inspire you, encourage you, support you in all of your dreams or endeavours. She sees your strength, bravery, kindness and wisdom even when you can’t see it for yourself. Let her work with you to bring forth the biggest of your dreams. Tiphoniel can help you manifest all that is best for you. She believes in you when even you have stopped believing in yourself.

Let Tiphoniel’s compassionate healing flow into your life to lift you though the challenging times. She is here to remind you that Love is All.

Energy Wave Wake Up Call

IMG_1556There are changes coming thick & fast at the moment. The energy that is flowing through & around us is a blast of WAKE UP! Imagine you are still pressing the snooze button on the alarm clock. So here is someone with a glass of cold water, pulling back the duvet & throwing the water all over you. Wake Up! is the command. It’s time both to see the world as is really is & to see all your own beautiful Light.

I’ve been waking up, on & off, since 2005. Yet when I look back further certain years strike a chord too – May 2001 when my own creativity birthed a child; January 1998 when I was wrenched out of a toxic work pattern; August 1987 when a grand trine Harmonic Convergence took place & the world meditated together; 1976 when I found Past Lives through the pages of a book. There have probably been many other points in my life when I surfaced for a brief moment to wonder why I was here on the Earth & what it was all about. Each time sleep would claim me once again.

In 2005 I finally stopped snoozing in a dream reality & woke up. It hasn’t been easy to stay awake – the comfort blanket of pattern & habit calls me back from time to time. There is a ‘reality’ that is so seductive it’s hard to throw it off. A ‘dream’ where someone else has all the responsibility for my life, this world & all that happens in it. Waking up means accepting that I co-create this ‘dream’ along with all other beings – that I am responsible for my bit of it & if it’s crap then that crap is all my own. Not an easy realisation. Followed by the understanding that if it’s crap I can do something to stop it being that way – I can change myself so that I ‘dream’ a different world. The trick is to find enough of us who take this responsibility for self & are prepared to co-create a very different ‘reality’. Because that means we all have to change our individual selves to recognise & acknowledge our join ‘dreaming’. That’s when I met the Earth’s ArchAngels. Their insistent, kick-ass energy has shunted me through a massive set of changes and I ‘dream’ a very different world now.

So now it’s time for the rest of us to wake up fully. Try not to cling to the old habits. It will make your transition more challenging than it really needs to be. Be prepared to take full responsibility for yourself inwardly so that the outer world can also change. Stand up for what you believe and honour your inner Light. Who better to help you through this uncertain & possibly shocking time than The Earth’s ArchAngel Lureshia. She is bringing inspiration & infinite patience into your ‘home’ – your very self. She is supporting you on this part of your journey so that you find your deep inner knowing, unconditional love for yourself and, in this way, you widen your vision to embrace your whole self.

To feel her around you sit quietly for a few moments & imagine the smell of damp leaves, the sound of the wind in the trees and the vibration of Mother Earth. Then hear the crackle of the fire in the hearth, see the warm candle glow & feel the warmth of a cosy blanket. Let her copper & gold Light fill your mind as she brings you her loving, joyful encouragement to take the first step on your new journey.

Be secure in the understanding that she has helped you pack into yourself everything you could possibly ever need. That she will nurse you through the challenges, hurts and disappointments. That you will gain so much joy, success & contentment into your life that every step will have been exactly the best one for you. blue-clock_1._blue-twin-bell-battery-quartz-heart-shaped-alarm-clock

Working with the Earth ArchAngels

IMG_2255 One of the things I’m doing at the moment had it’s beginnings in 2012 and I never expected where it would lead me. Back then I was busy collaborating with Jan Booth of Ostrich Angels on a range of soaps & sprays call Pearls of Wisdom. We both believe that what matters most is our energy vibration – not necessarily our physical presence in the world. So we had developed the scents for these products with the view that when you needed to set an intention about the way your energy went out into the world you would use the soap & spray to help you. Spirit Guides had helped us name them – Hope, Love, No Matter What etc.

As we completed the initial development work we were again approached by Energy Beings who channelled in through me the most interesting scent combinations. I didn’t have a clear sense of who these particular being were (I have been in conversation with Elementals, Dragons, Angels, Aliens & Planetary bodies for many years) but as we were both busy with other projects we sort of left the information on one side to be picked up when we had some more time. We are both good at responding to intuitive prompts so we knew that there would be reason behind the timing & the connection with these beings.

It was later in 2013 that things began to pick up pace with the Earth ArchAngels – as they finally called themselves. Every time Jan & I sat down for a catch up & to move our other projects forward we found ourselves being bombarded by new ideas, requests to go in a particular direction, instructions on how to make things and confirmations that this was work we had been asked to do. We ran with it! Being woken at 4 or 5 am to scribble down ideas. Having to read a wide range of books for info. Pulling together some friends to work with us on channelling the music of each being. Producing the soaps, sprays, candles in the ‘haunted’ Nont Sarah’s Inn. And finally, on the Summer Solstice of 2014 watching the sun dip in the sky as Etieliel’s music was played for the first time.

Neither of us was really aware of what we had let ourselves in for that evening! For the last eleven months we have both been walking the Earth ArchAngel Healing Wheel. Each month the energy presence of an ArchAngel has moved into our lives & we have worked closely with their loving, tough & healing energy. Other projects have taken a back seat – lots of work placed on hold – so that we understood & experienced their positive effect on our lives. Some months haven’t been easy – there are some ArchAngels who I work better with than others – but each attunement has taken me a step closer to being a ‘whole’ energy being. They have helped me to integrate parts of myself that I have held away from my attention. I understand, appreciate & love my flaws much more than I every let myself before. Their impact on my life has been to show me the choices I have & encourage me to make the changes that have to happen for me to be happier. They have peeled my fingers off anything I hung onto that was actually limiting my choices & supported me through the pain of letting go. Their energy has felt so powerful & insistent yet so gently given with all their love.

I’m now waiting for the completion of this year of surprises & change. The coming Solstice will be another new beginning in my connection with the Earth ArchAngels. I wonder what will happen next?
