Bringing an End to the Pity Party

I don't yet know enough about astrology to know whether the current Jupiter Retrograde is having a major influence on some people right now, but I have noticed a recurring theme in my Reiki sessions recently. My understanding is that a Jupiter Retrograde can encourage us to work on self-worth and can help us to learn to love who we are, to practice abundance, to share ourselves and to re-evaluate our personal relationship with giving and receiving. Jupiter Retrograde or not, self-pity is making its presence clearly known, over and over again right now, with many people seemingly actively competing with parents, siblings, work-colleagues and friends to demonstrate they have it worse, that th

Consciousness Beyond the Body

I've just downloaded this free eBook, which brings together a compilation of the core findings of many exceptional authors in the field of consciousness research and exploration. It promises to be a very interesting read, particularly as it is relatively common (speaking from personal experience) for experienced practitioners to access expanded states of consciousness whilst practising Reiki meditation. Compiled and edited by Alexander De Foe, it features contributions respected authors and researchers such as: Luis Minero Nelson Abreu Ed Kellogg Ryan Hurd Robert Peterson Preston Dennett Graham Nicholls Jurgen Ziewe Clare Johnson Robert Waggoner Alexander De Foe Natasha Tassell-Matamua Anth

Introducing the Dynamics of Astrology

I'm really excited to be taking part in an 18-week course with well-known astrologer David Charles Rowan MA MSc, starting on Monday 29 February 2016. The more I delve into this work, the more I realise that the planets affect us all in very profound ways, the more curious I become, and the more I feel it is long overdue that I learned more. This course particularly appealed to me because it is' far more than just a course introducing Astrology; it also explores Esoteric Philosophy, Mythology, Ancient History, Prediction, Psychology, the nature of the human condition and how we navigate our lives. For those of you who don't know David, I have no doubt that he will be the most inspiring teach

The value of 'channelled teachings'

This is for those of you who wonder why I greatly value the wisdom and spiritual logic received through channelled teachings, either via another person or those received personally during my own inner contemplation. I’m not a big fan of the ‘God’ word, because of the connotations associated with it, but no matter what language you use to describe the concept of a Higher Self or Creative Source or to describe the myriad of ways in which to access expanded states of conscious awareness world-renowned channel Lee Carroll sums it up beautifully: “In channelling, many feel that the Human Being’s consciousness is supplanted by another entity, and that during this time the Human has nothing to do

Seven Habits of Chronically Unhappy People

I often teach about happiness and what has become exceedingly clear is this: There are seven habits that chronically unhappy people have mastered. According to Psychology Today, University of California researcher Sonja Lyubomirsky states: "40 percent of our capacity for happiness is within our power to change." If this is true and it is, there's hope for us all. There are billions of people on our planet and clearly some are truly happy. The rest of us bounce back and forth between happiness and unhappiness depending on the day. Throughout the years, I've learned there are certain traits and habits chronically unhappy people seem to have mastered. But before diving in with you, let me pr

The New Normal

This is a blog article I wrote not long after I learned Reiki, but which still holds true today, albeit there have been further shifts in my experience and perception since. How have things altered so profoundly for me? I used to feel my body as a solid object, dense, almost unwieldy, and I considered my thoughts and emotions to be exactly that; my thoughts and emotions, they made up my version of myself. How radically things have changed. For the first time, probably in my life, I feel truly alive, vibrant. I have a completely new concept of what is 'normal'. Physically I feel energy coursing through my body at every moment. I don't just understand the concept of us as energetic beings
