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…

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!

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 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

The week ahead – money on mind

photo (16)

Urgh, don’t you just hate these money cards? I want fluffy bunny love cards, not MONEY cards! I don’t even want to think about money! Unless it’s coming to me in unexpected ways of course…

But hey, guess what? We live in the world, and so money is a huge part of our lives, and the Four of Ariel reminds us this week to stop and think about how we are spending. Are you spending way too much? Or are you hoarding all your money away for a ‘rainy day’ and being kind of a Scrooge?

A good question to ask yourself is this; Are you spending your money on the things that you value? Or are you just buying crap? Think about it next time you’re standing in line at the counter, or about to click ‘purchase’, ask yourself – ‘How much do I value this?’

And it works both ways. You might find yourself putting a bunch of stuff you don’t really need or want back on the hangers, but you also might find yourself spending more money on things you wouldn’t usually. I rarely spend a lot of money on crystals. I always pick up the £1 tumble stones, when really, because I love them so much, I should be looking at the £5 ones instead.

Love, light and expensive crystals,
