Reintegration Of Soul Skills

I’m focusing this week on being whole and more to the point, presenting the whole self as you flow through life. The Wholly Grail’s Principle 4: I AM Truth is about exactly that. Instead of hiding the truth of who you are, instead of suppressing the parts of yourself that you believe may be judged and deemed to be unacceptable, now is the time to step into your full power and claim your own unique gifts as Divine. It’s time to begin the reintegration of soul skills.

I’m an energy healer, a spiritual teacher, a mentor, a counsellor, a coach… but I’m also an intuitive, an angel channel, a professional tarot consultant, basically a conduit for Source. I’ve had many of those skills on a back burner for the last 5 years though because the angels asked me to create something new: The Wholly Grail. The clue is in the title, it’s a set of Principles aimed at stripping away the layers that prevent you from recognising your wholeness (it’s not misspelled as some may have you believe). The Grail holds the truth that lies beyond the veil, the simple truth, but my truth is that I had to go on a hero’s journey through the veil to find what was never hidden in the first place… and that journey consisted of years of psychic study and training.

Being a channel for angels is my greatest gift and when they asked me to begin teaching, not about them but about the message they bring, I obliged like a good student. Moving into a world where being a spiritual counsellor, teacher, healer and mentor is taken far more seriously than talking to and receiving messages from the invisible realms meant that most of what I did, most of who I AM remained silent, waiting to be reclaimed and rejoiced at.

The Grail wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for my gifts. There are those who will scoff, those who will disbelieve, those who will fall away… my wisdom will pale for those who cannot reconcile it’s source (Source)… but ultimately by embracing all of who I AM, I have no need to prove my worth or the validity of my work. It speaks for itself. And as I’m fast approaching the next phase of my work you will notice it begin to morph to encompass more of my true nature.

I’m off this evening to do a live event for charity for the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book… where I’ll be showcasing one or two of my psychic spooky skills. I hope you have the courage to claim yours this week… it’s time.

Blinded By The Light

Possibly the most exciting phase of any project or relationship is the start up. The steep learning curve pushing you beyond your own personal glass ceiling into brand new territory, scary as it maybe, changes you forever as new knowledge integrates and overrides your previous assumption of capability and often your belief system which until you know that you didn’t know, how could you know that those beliefs were self-limiting?

It’s all very exciting (as I said) until you hit the first major snag or obstacle.

Obstacles are not put in your way to rob you of your joy, they aren’t some kind of cosmic karmic punishment, instead, see them as Divine protection designed primarily to alert you to an issue. Sometimes that issue is simply a need for more learning, sometimes it’s pointing out that you are heading straight for danger.

Let’s assume for a moment that all the obstacles in your way are mighty angels. (I like that image, I’m much less likely to try to barge through without stopping to acknowledge the awe and majesty of the being before me)… but that beautiful angel is still in the way, right? The difference is that now you are asking questions, your excited by the obstacles and you are positively buzzing about what you need to do to not only get past the problem but to actually make friends with it and make it your ally. Imagine having an angel on your side!

Now where you once saw a mountain blocking your path that sent you into child mode, stamping your little feet about why it always goes wrong for you, you now are being blinded by the light… light so bright that it blinds you to all but the solutions!

Instead of allowing problems and delays to steal your joy, allow them to shine a light on your potential.

May you be carried simply and swiftly into the slipstream towards your own miracles today.

A Gently Pointing Wing

Archangel Azrael, my guardian, guide and friend, spoke plainly to me yesterday as I did my morning meditation: “I stand and watch you each day. Sometimes I whisper guidance, occasionally I catch you when you fall, but mostly I just watch you. What would you have me watch you do today?” I thought about it for a moment and then reeled off the basic tasks I had to complete during the day as he listened patiently… nothing exciting in the list but then I hadn’t planned anything other than dealing with loose ends and daily stuff. His response was just enough though, to propel me into a completely different mindset and send me off in an unexpected direction via a gently pointing wing…

All he said was: “It takes just one decision to live your best life.”

Now I don’t know about you but when the Angel of Death turns up and basically tells you he’s bored of watching your everyday merry-go-round, I’m going to take notice and re-evaluate what step I take next!

The angelic realm are witness to our hopes,  our dreams, our efforts, actions and failings and they must stand by until we ask for help (or until we are in danger of buggering up the Divine Plan). They don’t judge and they don’t scold if you take an imagined wrong turn but they do feel complete compassion when you choose to berate yourself for missing the mark or for not living up to a standard that you set for yourself… probably based on someone else’s achievements.

Azrael didn’t tell me he was bored, he told me I held the power to achieve my own dreams… I could have been offended if my ego had responded but I’ve had him around for so long that I knew he was encouraging me to simply change one thing and be blessed.

Principle 3: I AM Human, and sometimes I need a little help from the angels.

How do you respond to divine guidance?

Smash Through It

The first Monday of the month is upon us and as we gallop into the second half of an already eventful year, my personal challenge of late has been one of reflection.

At the beginning of this year I gave Angelic Annual Forecasts to 10 lovely ladies as gifts to guide them through the coming months and at the same time I created one for myself. June was to be a particularly difficult month according to the chart as Archangel Samael was to be my guide and so foretold of coming face to face with the shadow side of human affairs… and Samael didn’t disappoint. Far from feeling like June broke me though, I’ve arrived here in July feeling empowered and confident that I can move towards whatever life has in store without worrying too much about whether or not my bubble will survive its sharp blades.

As I inspected my forecast over the weekend and found I was to be escorted through this month by Seraphiel, a seraphim creation angel, I almost had to laugh: if Samael was going to have me trawl the depths then Seraphiel was going to push me to the heights… The heights are much harder when you limit yourself with small-self thinking. Spiritually speaking what was previously my highest potential is about to be proved a glass ceiling and the angels aren’t messing about when they ask you to smash through it.

If there is one challenge I can set for you today and for the rest of this month it’s this: let go of what you think you know about your own capabilities, let go of the small-self, let go of the limits that your past seems to have imposed upon you and soar towards your highest potential… which incidentally, you have no idea what that is yet.

Principle1: I AM God

Principle 2: I AM Detached

Happy 4th July x

An Invocation for Grace and Mercy

I’ve been working with angelic help for years now, but I’m not the most obedient student! Although I endeavour to serve as the Divine wishes, bearing in mind that we are the Divine and so in effect the angels are always guiding us towards our own wishes or at least the highest version of them, if I can’t see or imagine or indeed understand the path I’m on then it’s my tendency to dig my heels right in and rebel.

Trust is the ability to let someone or something else lead and in order to be a follower you either have to be completely asleep or you have to be awake enough to trust that giving up control is the easiest and fastest way to get where you want to be… yes that’s a contradiction and yes that’s the dilemma.

What if the angels, messengers of God, were asking you to give up control to another fallible human being because somehow your fate was wrapped up in theirs and at this point along the journey your desired outcome was dependent upon allowing them to take the lead, could you? Would you?

In a much broader sense we are doing that at every moment of every day, we allow others to make our laws, uphold them, govern our societies etc… these are all about giving up control on a slightly less personal but still relevant scale, but what I’m attempting to address here is a much more intimate and individual type of leader/follower relationship and it messes with your head in Grail terms because it’s a fine balancing act… that masculine/feminine dynamic.

I’ve come to a crossroads where the angels have recognised after hearing many an invocation for grace and mercy from me that I’m finding this part of the mission excruciating and that the cost feels too high… enter Archangel Samael, without whom free will (or at least the appearance of it) would not be available to us. Light without shadow  affords us only one choice and to embrace my whole self I must learn to dance in the shadows whilst I choose the light… poetic eh? Practically speaking it means I AM Human (Principle 3) and therefore have limits to what I can tolerate.

Archangel Samael has been working with me since last Thursday helping me to review my choices and even to get a clearer picture of where I’m trying to make choices where no real choice exists. It’s an exhausting process when you’re attached to an outcome, highlighting my need to immerse myself into  further study of Principle 2: I AM Detached.

Here’s the thing: We serve The Divine; we are The Divine, we therefore serve our own highest good. Good.

We choose the outcome and The Divine moves us towards that intention (Divine this time meaning us and including the entire universe)… Free will then consists of one question and one question only: do you want what you say you want? Because if you do, this is what it’s going to take to get it.

Let me rephrase the last question… do you want it enough? Me? I don’t know… hence the crossroads. I’ll let you know what I decide (when and if I decide). There are gentler angelic helpers if you want to undertake a similar examination of your direction but Samael deals with shifting a stubborn black and white mindset. He’s not your average fluffy winged being.

I’ll be back with some more insights from the path on Monday but in the meantime look out for the free group oracle reading on Saturday… x

A Greater Dreaming

For the most part I keep Grail wisdom in the land of the everyday; focused on real life, real problems and a quest that most people can relate to, but occasionally I can’t help but wander into the land of myth, legend, mystery and allegory…

Magic has been sought by man for millennia as a way of lifting the spirit from the mundane to the miraculous and for those truly initiated in the field, once your eyes are open to real magik they can never be closed again. Once you have stepped through the veil, the illusion, everything is brighter, clearer and has an unreal quality to it that sets it apart from what you previously experienced to now recognise the dream…

Sure, in this dream there are demons as well as angels but unlike your time spent asleep, the time before you understood you were on a quest, the demons are easier to spot and you have a choice to stay away from them or to engage as a part of your adventure on the path. There are myriad helpers in the great unseen that once your eyes, heart and mind are open will emerge to help you float along through a greater dreaming toward whatever comes next, and any interaction with the other realms will either inspire you or render you speechless but either way you will be changed forever.

I created the Grail with the backdrop of a time when anything was possible, a time of Arthurian Knights, dragons and magik, not because it’s fantasy but because in a land where anything is possible so to are you, in any format that you choose… you can create the life that want, recreate the person you want to be, choose to believe in angels and faeries, dragons and mysterious cups, knights and chivalry… you can choose to build Camelot for yourself from wherever or whatever position you are currently in. That’s true magik.

The membership section of the site is currently under construction… if it were ready today and you were a member you would have access to the “Creating Camelot” programme to help you overhaul your life, plus today we’d be digging deeper into working with the higher realms… until it’s ready though…

I’m off to battle my real life demons with the aid of the faeries in my garden.

Distant Echoes

Every morning I call in the angels to help guide me through the day whether I feel I need help or not. This morning Archangel Azrael asked me “Will you let us help you today?” I replied: “I will always let you help me but today I’m unsure what it is I need help with.” Azrael’s response was one I had not expected, he simply said “Are you at peace?”

It’s been a strange morning, I awoke early and turned over to go back to sleep. The feeling was not one of depression believing I had nothing to get up for, it was one of gratitude that today I had the opportunity to have a lie in. My first thought upon waking was a random memory of a summer day, a yellow tricycle that by today’s standards would be considered a health and safety hazard, psychedelic hotpants and legs that went on forever sporting scuffed knees, bare feet on weather-smoothed York stone flags… and I remember thinking that was almost 40 years ago, but I had no clue what triggered the memory other than the carefree pure innocent delight of being without concern for anything other than now and not needing to….

“Are you at peace?”

I searched myself for the answer. I feel calm, I thought; I’m not missing anything, other than the usual things that life propels you towards but even those seem little less than distant echoes for now; am I at peace?

I don’t feel un-peaceful (if that’s even a word), but if I search myself, I don’t feel peaceful either…

I found the words to answer Azrael, “I feel lost.”

“Then will you let us help you?”

“Is it not ok to feel lost? I’m not afraid here, I’m not uncomfortable, I see no reason to shift in any direction… I am always grateful for your assistance and I will never turn it down, but what is it I require assistance with?”

“Are you at peace?”

Sometimes it takes a higher perspective to elevate the feeling from detachment to contentment, from contentment to peace and from being lost to feeling joy in the centre of exactly nowhere. Nowhere, everywhere, right here, right now.

Principle 2: I AM Detached

May angels help you find your peace.

Inextinguishable Source of All Light

Archangel Uriel, whose name means Fire of God, has been my close companion this week. Have you ever noticed how, when you’re “on fire” there’s always someone wanting to steal your spark?

I mentioned a few days ago how it feels to me as though spring has sprung and my mood and energy are dancing along nicely in the warmth of the sun, under these unseasonably blue skies occurring over South Yorkshire, UK. I’m inspired, joyful, filled with light and love and enthusiasm and what I’ve noticed is that everyone wants a little piece of it… That’s wonderful because it means they are recognising what they want and how good it appears to feel… the problem is, they want a piece of mine…

Now, I’m not mean and having siblings I was brought up knowing how to share, but did you know that this good feeling stuff is actually free and in abundance everywhere in the universe? People flock like moths to a candle flame when someone is full of light but there is always a danger of their flapping wings putting the candle out.

Archangel Uriel has been working relentlessly to maintain my inner glow and keep it burning at a steady and sustained rate… here’s how you can do it for yourself:

To get that spark going… Take your foot off the gas with whatever you’re doing and get busy with some day to day physical stuff, “chop wood, carry water” as the Chinese proverb goes. For me its gardening, baking, going out for a walk in nature (or just cleaning the bath, which for some reason is when I have my coolest ideas). It’s all about relinquishing control over the stuff that’s cluttering up your mind.

Fan the flames… learn something new. Six months ago I was so stressed because I had no idea how to create this site, I taught myself and when I got completely stuck, I asked one of those siblings for help to get me unstuck… but I didn’t ask him to do it for me, that’s the key you see, fanning the flames is about recognising little by little just how powerful you are. You can sit there and say “I don’t know how” or “I can’t” or you can say ” there’s a world full of information out there and anything is possible.” Once you make even the tiniest bit of progress or have a mini aha! moment, you’re on fire…

Protecting the flame… don’t let other people’s drama deplete your energy and don’t deny them their right to fan their flames. You may think you’re helping but you are simply creating  dependency… show them the light and then let them fly towards the inextinguishable source of all light.

The fire is within you, so go on and stoke it… ask Archangel Uriel to help.

If you’d like to learn more about the art of Self-Full Living, Principle 6 of The Wholly Grail will be available later this year as a training programme in the forthcoming members area. To find out more watch out for link coming in next weeks posts.
