#Caturday cat cards – Eight of Wands

10622771_693352757412119_4922404642821616687_n

I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes I feel like I’m working so damn hard. Thinking, planning, working on projects, blogs, writing novels, just like doing stuff in the hopes that one day I’ll find some kind of success in something and make a difference to the world!

So a lot of the time I’m looking at the computer screen, or at my feet feeling dejected about the fourth rejection in my inbox from a literary agent (OK, so that’s still way less than J.K Rowling), or I’m bummed out watching the Almighty Johnsons (please watch this show, it’s amazing!!) because only like one person looked at my blog yesterday even though I spent ages typing up what I thought was a killer post!

But the Eight of Wands reminds us this #Caturday that just because we can’t see the movement doesn’t mean things aren’t happening for us. Maybe my agent hasn’t joined the agency yet. Maybe there are lessons to learn and blocks to bust before I can experience what society tells me is this thing called ‘success’.

Maybe if we all just stopped feeling so glum about nothing happening we could look up from our falling apart leopard print Converse sneakers and see that things are happening around us all the time in the cosmic web of life we all weave and none of us can see it all! There is so much going on right now that affects us that we are so completely unaware of. Like right now someone somewhere might be packing up the ready meal that you are going to eat next week and you’ll probably never even think about them…

So today let’s take a breath and remember that so much good stuff is happening around you all the time even when you are feeling totally bummed, and you can never feel too totally bummed if you go look at some clouds.

Love, light and flying wands! ❤

The Week Ahead – There’s no place like home

photo (46)

How did we all go with our spending last week?! Anyone weigh up any good purchases? I actually spent a lot more than I had planned, but it was all because I went on an impromptu trip to the seaside! A gorgeous little B&B, some nice food out and about, a few beers and a hand full of crystals – hello hand-sized rose quartz! – but it was money well spent. A weekend I’ll always remember and some trinkets that will last longer than a new pair of shoes. 🙂

Anyway, that’s all about last week and I hope your week was totally wonderful but right now we’re looking ahead to this coming week! I pulled a card today from Doreen Virtue’s Mary, Queen of Angels deck, which is a super cute and peaceful deck and reminds me of how I’ve been thinking about doing deck reviews – do people want to read deck reviews? And the card I pulled, after asking Mary for a message for anyone who sees this, is ‘Home‘. Ah! A week to think about home… you can clean it, you can invite people over to it, you can buy some flowers or a new picture to put in it (if it’s inline with your higher self spender! Haha!) or you can even start looking for a new one if you think you’re in the wrong one. Whatever it is this week we need to give a little love to our homes. They protect us, they keep us warm, they are a necessity like food and water and all we do is complain about how we don’t like the carpets! (Guilty!)

When I was at the lovely Louise Androlia‘s workshop last weekend (I’m still half way through writing a blog post about it!) we talked about space clearing and this might be a good week to do some space clearing! Space clearing (if you’re new to the idea) is how we move negative or stale old energies out of our house and replace them with new sparkling shiny ones! It’s like metaphysical dusting!

Here’s my top five ways to space clear!

❤ Loud pop music (anything 80’s) and dancing around! Best way to get some joy into a space!

❤ Lighting a candle or a bunch of candles and letting the light shine!

❤ Fresh flowers or a new pot plant depending on your budget!

❤ Sage or incense. I’m not a huge fan of the smell of sage, it’s OK, but I only use it for like serious space cleansing cases (you know like ghosts or whatever). I like to open all the doors and windows and then walk around wafting a stick of lavender incense everywhere – make sure you get it into the corners!

❤ Vacuuming! Real life vacuuming and also asking Archangel Micheal to vacuum the negative energy at the same time! Oh yeah I totes vacuum with Archangel Micheal and that so needs to be a sticker or a badge – I vacuum with Archangel Micheal! (That is so copy write!)

Mostly though, you have to do what feels right to you! I’d love to hear how you cleanse your space!

Let’s do something nice for our homes this week, even if it’s just to feel gratitude for the place we live. Remember guys – there’s no place like home, there really, really isn’t! 🙂

If you are waiting for a free reading I thank you for being patient! I have like 70 requests in my inbox right now and doing about 5 a day! Stick with me I hope it’ll be worth it!

Love, light and metaphysical dusting!

Mr Big – King of Pentacles

phonto (15)

This one is so blindlingly obvious I really don’t even know if it needs to be said. But just in case – Mr Big is the King of Pentacles.

Sex and the City 2

Wanna talk about powerful dudes? Go talk about Mr Big. Not only is he powerful in the office, he’s powerful in social situations, and in the bedroom. He ooooozes sex appeal (if you’re into like, rich guys) and he’s handsome as hell! And he’s not just like a regular rich guy with a good job, this guy owns the place. He’s a tycoon, a banker, he’s got a yacht and it’s big enough to live on while his schmucks at the office keep things under control for a month or so.

He’s rich, he’s smooth, he’s damn charming and oh yeah, totally smug about it. Who the hell else in the world could have ‘abso-fucking-luely’ as their catch phrase and still have women swoon?! I mean it’s so cringy really…

big8_zpsaf721088

In regular life (hey, we don’t all hang out with people who own yachts) he might turn up as a an entrepreneur, a guy who studied business, real estate agents, guys who drive expensive cars, CEOs, bankers, investors, conservative guys who spend money on suits and big TVs, corporate guys, OK you get it. Also this guy is kind of predictable; you know when he’s gonna cancel cocktails because something always comes up at work. He’s an Earth sign, but he’s no way not a hippy. He’s not out hugging trees he’s planning cities from his penthouse office.

So who’s this guy when he’s reversed? Oh yeah, he’s the guy who’s having an affair, making dodgy business deals, cheating on his wife and not turning up to your wedding. You seriously don’t want to see this guy reversed in a reading (especially about weddings), but upright – girls and boys – you’ll be in for the ride of your life! And guys if the King of Pentacles is you – WOAH – keep doing what you’re doing and don’t say you’re going to marry anyone if you don’t really feel like it.

Love, light and Sex and the City marathons,

The Week Ahead – Old robes vs Kardashian wardrobes

photo 1 (7)

Another weekly reading brought to you by the suit of coins. Sorry! Last week we had the lovely tea and chat with the angels, but guess what? It’s back to being kicked in the butt – no cookies on the table today!

So the question this week is – are we spending money in alignment with our higher selves? I bought some clothes on ASOS the other day, maybe I didn’t really need them. Maybe I should be living a holy life in scratchy robes and old sandals. Argh! But we can’t live in robes and sandals on this planet right now, not unless we go off the grid at least. In my life right now I live in a city and I work in a public place and there’s a dress code. I’m not even allowed to wear sandals.

So where do we draw the line between dressing like a monk and spending like a Kardashian? How do we know how much is OK and how much is too much? Obviously our bank accounts can give us some advice about that, but using how much is in your bank account to gauge how much you can spend leads you to doing what I did last month – nearly hitting zero!

So the real question here is how do we get into alignment with ‘good’ spending?! Right, let’s pull another card…

photo 2 (8)

Looks like we need to put our purchases on the metaphorical scale of spending Justice!

Imagine on one side of the scale sits your glowing gorgeous higher self (a mini version, obviously your higher self is bigger than can fit on a scale!) and on the other put your purchases. Do they balance out? Is your ASOS shopping spree too heavy?! Is your once a month 50p charity shop buy a little too light?!

We can also think of our higher self as a ‘person’ and ask them what they think of our purchases too – hold up that shirt to your higher self in the changing room and see if she/he nods or shakes her/his head. Before clicking on ‘purchase’ look over at your higher self standing over by the pot plant, are they giving you that look? Or are they nodding with approval – after all your higher self wants you to feel good right?! It’s OK to buy stuff that will make you feel good, but spending money on crap you don’t even like doesn’t make you feel good!

Put your purchases on the scale and see how they line up this week! I’d love to know if this resonates and works for you guys and I’ll be reporting back on my progress at this at the end of the week! 🙂

In other weekly news – I still have loads of free 3 card readings to give away so hook it up if you haven’t already! I’ve finally put up a page of Praise featuring some of the amazing and wonderful feedback I’ve had so far and I’ve started putting up some links to some of the amazing people out in the world who have helped me so much on my journey so far, check them out! One of whom is the lovely Louise Androlia who I met yesterday at her wonderful double energy + surrender workshop which I’ll be blogging about in the next few days. 🙂

Love, light and weighing in the spending!

#Caturday cat cards – Three of Swords reversed

photo 2 (6)

Guys, it’s the weekend why the hell are we looking at the Three of Swords?! This is the ultimate heartbreak card, seriously I don’t want to be seeing this first thing on a #Caturday morning! Oh but wait, it’s reversed… but is that any better?!

What I’m seeing today is a chance for us to let go of some of that heaviness we have in our hearts, imagine those swords are sliding out now! We are human, we’ve all had heartbreak and none of us is walking around with a bouncy pure happy heart, that’s just not possible in these bodies! It’s part of this life’s experience to feel emotional pain. Total bummer, sorry guys, but it’s true.

So what can we do about it?

1. Accept it. Accept that you have heartache. Don’t hide from it, don’t cover it with a cute heart shaped rug, look it in the face and say – hey it’s OK, this is a part of me and I can work through this.

2. Forgive. Oh hello. Like it’s that easy?! If you can’ t totally ‘forgive’ whoever or whatever has hurt you that’s cool, this isn’t an overnight fix it trick. Just ask the universe, God, angels, guides whoever you like, to help you. What’s with this forgiveness thing? OK that’s like a whole post, no wait, like a book. What I learnt this week though is that we can’t just forgive others, we need to forgive ourselves for how we feel about others. If someone hurt you, you can forgive them, but can you forgive yourself for the mean thoughts you’ve been thinking about them? Yes, you can and you need to!

3. Heart chakra cleanse! Do some work on your heart chakra this weekend! Do whatever visualisation works for you – green/pink wheels, light, hearts, flowers, whatever, but make sure you see your heart centre as beautiful!

4. Give some love. Send some love to someone; energetically or physically! Give someone a hug, send a virtual hug or an energetic hug!

5. Love yourself. Argh! What?! This is not Radical Self Love Bootcamp! (Although I love that stuff.) We are all at different stages of our self love journey. Some of us are just starting to not hate ourselves and put ourselves down so much, others are feeling much more confident these days but still struggling with certain aspects, and even those of us who are seriously into the self love thing are still having bad hair days. But it’s not just about your hair…

When I started writing this post I thought it was just going to be about heart chakra clearing, but there you go – the message today is actually this:

❤ You need to start loving who you are ❤

I’m off to what I think is going to be a fabulous workshop today with the lovely Louise Androlia and will be blogging all about it later so come back soon!

Also I’m still giving away free readings if you have a burning question you would like some clarity on! 🙂

Love, light and loving who you are,

x

Jophiel Jeans and Jesus Sandals (AKA Shopping with the angels!)

photo (45)

This post is for anyone who’s ever had a case of buyer’s remorse. Hands up who’s ever come home from a day out shopping with a bunch of crap? Ever thought – OMG why did I buy that? Or maybe you wear it once and then it goes at the back of the cupboard until you do one of those yearly clean outs. You know – if you haven’t worn it in a year donate it. But you have such good intentions; you always think about spending sensibly, you make yourself a budget for your shopping trips, you write a list of what you actually need, you do all that stuff the financial self help books tell you to do but you still find yourself getting carried away when you see a sale and buy sexy dresses in every colour that look amazing in the change room, but in real life make you look like a sad stripper.

Well guess what girls and guys, you can change all that! All you need to do is ask Archangel Jophiel to come shopping with you!

“Who is this Jophiel?” you might ask, well she’s the angel of beauty! OK, mostly she’s known for helping you to beautify your thoughts and your inner beauty, but like most modern gals (and guys!) I like to feel like I’m beautiful on the outside too, and God knows how hard that is some days!

So what do you actually have to do if you’d like her presence with you? You just ask her! That’s why I love working with the angels, all you have to do is talk to them! I usually say something like this:

“Archangel Jophiel, please come shopping with me today. Help me to find clothes I feel good in for a good price (you can list here what you are looking for and how much you want to spend). Help me to be discerning and don’t let me buy anything I’m not going to value or enjoy. Help the money I spend to support those who need it. “*

Archangel Jophiel please help me find a pair of acid wash jeans and a new Doreen Virtue deck! ❤ x

You can ask Jophiel for help with loads of other things too! She’s great at helping you to stop thinking so negatively and see your own inner and outer beauty – I think we all need some help with that now and again!

There’s no harm in asking for help with your eyeliner either and before everyone starts to think this is all very superficial and not very spiritual at all, just look around at the society we live in, it’s nuts! If having neat eyeliner helps you feel good about yourself when you step outside then why the hell shouldn’t you ask for divine help with it?!

Now if calling in an angelic being to help you find the perfect jeans and lipstick makes you feel a bit weird I totally get that. What you can do is just create an intention before you go out shopping. Instead of calling in the angels, call in your higher self or whoever takes your fancy. Hey, if you’re shopping for sandals you could even ask Jesus to come with you! Did I really just go there?! Yes I did! I work with Jesus pretty often, I think he’d get a kick out of helping you buy sandals as long as you had a glass of red wine afterwards. Wow, I really went there too. But you get the point, set the intention however you wish. Make clear it clear to the universe – what do you want from your shopping trip? How much do you want to spend? And don’t settle for buying anything that doesn’t make you feel amazing.

Love, light, Jophiel Jeans and Jesus Sandals,

i-literally-want-you-to-follow-me1

 *I hate the whole sweat shop thing and all the negative vibes that come with it. I wish we could boycott it and only buy from  handmade and vintage stores… but I also feel that boycotting doesn’t necessarily help with things like this. After all there are lots of workers all over the world who need jobs and money to support their families and shutting down clothing factories isn’t going to help those who make your clothes. I do of course 100% support better conditions and fairer pay, and when I get dressed in the morning I do try to remember to send a little love and gratitude the way off the people who made what I’m wearing. ❤ x

Monday Mixtape – You can do magic

I love music and my taste is pretty eclectic I guess, but I’m always hearing songs that really resonate with me on some kind of weird higher level. Even songs I’ve heard a hundred times will one day like, speak to me. Oooooh!

The other day this song came on and I always knew the lyrics were ‘you can do magic’ but that day it was like – ‘no, you really can do magic’!

So here it is for your Monday Mixtape listening pleasure!

I’d love to know what songs you are resonating with this week too! 🙂

Love, light and magic!
