New Year, new start is always a popular theme for January. For me I’ve been setting intentions for what I’d like to achieve this year. Of course I am (as we all are) at the mercy of the Universe so you never quite know how the result of your manifesting will present. However the ball needs to be set rolling.
At the start of the year I had so many ideas flying around as to where I wish to take my business this year I came to the point I called out for some extra help. I needed to get out of my own way in order to clearly hear what I was being guided to do next from within myself. It sometimes takes the guidance of another to gently bring you back to the present moment. This is just what I needed.
Through a number of synchronicities the external guidance I was requiring presented. If a pattern suddenly starts to develop around a subject I start to pay attention.
The synchronicities that day lead me to have an Intuitive Guidance & Distance Energy Reading session from Michelle of Sacred Self. I use Sacred Self Alchemical oils in my healing sessions & for my own personal self-cleansing routine. They are truly divine. At a time when I felt I needed someone on the outside to look in & assist me gain some clarity this was my opportunity. It felt so natural & a healing session with Michelle was just what I needed.
It didn’t disappoint. My personally made mandala is stunning. (There are examples on Michelle’s site & FB) It’s full of crystals, oils, cards & mantras. I’ve printed it out & have it right in front of me now. The written report that accompanied it was so accurate & spot on. Every single thing mentioned was confirmation for me to jump & take action. There were ideas I’d thought of months ago but tucked away as insignificant or I let fear or other people’s views stop me following through.
As I was reading I kept saying ‘wow’ Michelle’s good. It might seem strange to hear this but all the information I received wasn’t new or a surprise. “What’s the point then if you were told what you already knew?” I hear you shout. As I said above I was in my own way, too wrapped up to take a step back & listen to the voice within me. That’s when we turn to others for guidance. It sometimes takes an outsider to clearly spell things out to you. Even the most conscious & intuitive beings are always learning.
My intention with the session was to find out the exact area in my life I need to be focusing on this year. I found out just that, not by it being told to me directly “you must do this” but with the ‘clues’ Michelle provided for me to figure it out for myself. It was up to me to then take what was in front of me & apply to my life. be responsible. The greatest gift anyone can receive.
The best part was Michelle provided practical tools to work with for the next few months. Questions to ask myself, meditations to listen too & of course which Alchemical oils would best serve me to move forward.
Grace was perfect for me as the words on the bottle are ‘get out of your own way.’ A really relaxing blend of geranium, sweet orange & lime.
Surrender was my second oil with the strong message to allow myself to feel all feelings. This is a common theme for me right now too to really ‘feel’ what is going on. This is a blend of my two favourite scents Frankincense & Myrrh as well as the very clearing eucalyptus.
I meditated as suggested with my mandala for an hour each day for three days. It was a very powerful & opening experience. It was just what I needed to assist me onto the next level of progression.
If you’re looking for some clarity or extra guidance I highly recommend Michelle’s sessions. Even if you’re not sure what you are looking for I’m sure some very good answers will present.

Daily mediation is part of my lifestyle. It was on my ‘most desired’ list for when I was creating the life I love to live manifestation. Depending on my schedule I usually practice my longest & deepest meditation, minimum half an hour, in the mornings. If I’m teaching yoga in the morning I try & fit meditation into the hour break I have between classes. If this isn’t possible I wait till I get home at lunch- time. This is great also to re-balance & relax me especially if it’s been a high-energy morning.
I love Friday’s, who doesn’t it. Even though my new life doesn’t fit the usual Monday to Friday mould anymore I still enjoy ‘the end of the week’ Friday feeling. Every second Friday is now my full day off, no teaching & I try to keep it free from healing sessions too. The other Friday in between I only teach one class at 6pm. Nice to have the whole day to do my desk related jobs.
Last Friday I woke up late for me, naturally at 8:30am. I must have needed the sleep & if I don’t need to set an alarm I won’t. I try to avoid technology if I can when I first get up or it’s too easy to get sucked into emails, social media or general ‘dicking around’ online. 😉 A nice cup of Yorkshire tea is in order though first whilst I go over my to do list. Then it’s time to meditate.
Friday’s guided meditation was calling to me as soon as I woke up. Usually I sit for a while & scan my meditations to see which one springs out at me. I already knew that Money & Wealth Manifesting by Elizabeth Peru was the one I needed on Friday.
It’s a very practical meditation that invites you to take notes if anything comes up for you. I know this seems strange at first, as isn’t meditation all about stillness, letting go & not thinking? There is a big difference between the thinking monkey mind rambling on & listening to the voice of your Soul.Meditation takes on many forms. This meditation is very ‘active’ & hands on. Inside every bodies heart centre (energetically speaking) there is a huge library of knowledge from many lifetimes to tap into. Mediation is the bridge to access this knowing. It takes practice but through consistent meditation you’ll get to discern the difference between the voices in your head.
Through my daily meditation I connect deeply with my Soul who knows 100% what is best for me. Throughout the Money & Wealth Manifesting journey ideas were literally pouring in on how I can create new business opportunities. My Soul was flooding me with hot new creative solutions to take my business to the next level. I chose to be still & let the process unfold, as I trust I will remember what I need to take away with me. If you’re new to this for sure take notes. As soon as I finished I was off, pen in hand recording everything that had come through.
I did step away for twenty minutes or so. Took a shower, did some more cleansing rituals & then came back to my note-book. It’s good to give new ideas some space to breathe. If you pounce on something too quickly you can literally strangle the life out of it. Stepping back & then reviewing from afar I could really feel which ideas I should set rolling first.

Have a sensational day, love K xx
If you’ve read any sort of metaphysical text you will have come across the word ‘manifest.’ Manifest means to ‘reveal’ or ‘to be evidence of.’ Manifesting is a way of making things happen in the physical world by holding the intention of it becoming real from within i.e. in the invisible world. Our physical worlds are the creation of pulling our ‘inner’ thoughts through to make them reality.
Originally this post was going in a different direction with an already structured layout. However the universe had different plans. It’s a big subject to cover & I feel two shorter pieces will be more appropriate now.
This past year I have really started to understand the power of manifesting. One of my favourite ‘manifesting tools’ is one I learned from Doreen Virtues book ‘The Lightworkers Way.’ Doreen firmly believes “nothing is truly lost under the eye’s of God*” (*Insert who ever you wish here, I use the Universe.) Once I started using this mantra & truly believing in it the magic started to happen.
That magic is happening right now, literally five minutes ago something amazing happened. When I thought I’d share this mantra a few examples came to mind. I grabbed an old notebook to look up some references I knew I’d written down & to my amazement an oracle card I was gifted fell out. I thought I’d lost this card to the point I thought I’d thrown it away in an old envelope. Yes there was rummaging through rubbish bags to no avail. I so strongly believed in Doreen’s mantra that nothing is truly lost I was a little sad when the card didn’t turn up in the bin bags.
I still held the intention strongly the card was not lost. It would turn up & be returned to me when it was ready. Three months later here it is again & it has been in arms reach on my bookcase all this time! It’s actually the card I wrote about it this post here. I feel I was so attached & had handed over all my power to it I was strangling it’s energy. Therefore it could not serve me properly until I let it go. Now I’ve detached my power & responsibility has been handed back to me. The card is back to assist me.
Magical real life examples happening as I write, love it.
Another example was when my partner lost his crystal pendant one evening in the garden. I’ve mentioned before we live on a farm so our ‘back garden’ isn’t the average size. He was gutted. There was such a vast space to cover to try to find the crystal it was literally a needle in a haystack situation.
I told him the mantra above. I think he was a little skeptical but went with it. Three days later when he was out mowing the grass he kicked something with his toe. It was his pendant, it had been returned to him.
If something does leave you for a while don’t think of your treasure as ‘lost’ keep the vision in your minds eye you still have it close by. See yourself with it, holding it & cherishing it. Then by setting the intention firmly in your mind that you will be reunited simply trust that you will be. What you put out to the universe you will receive back.
Welcome to the world of manifesting.
Sadly it won’t help you win the lotto. Manifesting doesn’t work if it is ego based or not for you higher good. Often our intentions are manifested in ways we may not realise at first, as we are too focused on a specific outcome.
I will say though from my experience the more you trust and work with the universal energy the quicker things do manifest. They are not always good or positive either if you’re not careful. This is powerful stuff, which leads me nicely into part two of this post coming next Tuesday… ‘Manifesting from a negative place.’

“It’s love that makes the world go round!” W.S. GILBERT, Iolanthe
Welcome back to my crystal-healing segment. I’d taken a hiatus for a while here, not sure why exactly. Then last week I had a huge pull to talk about crystals again. I’m never far from a crystal, maybe less than thirty centimetres. It makes sense for me to start writing again about something that is an everyday part of my life.
Today I shall introduce you to a combination of crystals that may assist in attracting or maintaining that loving feeling!
Disclaimer: This is just my personal take of how certain crystals can work together in a positive way. This is not a set in stone (pun ha, ha!) method to snag the man or women of your dreams 😉
Personally I like to use these crystals for my own self-love stimulation. If I’m happy and outwardly glowing I hope that will rub off on those around me. Like everything in life it is in the intention you set before you start that is important. I set my intention to bring extra love & peace into my day by combining certain crystals together.
Here are my five love crystals of choice:
Rose Quartz: This crystal is pure love everything about it even the colour radiates happiness & joy. A fantastic crystal for healing the heart & emotional wounds as it brings calmness and balance. Rose quartz can promote self-love from within which in turn will open up the channels to give & receive love from others. Wear it next to your heart chakra for some extra loving.
Smoky Quartz: Great for dissipating negative emotions especially fear & promoting positive thinking. This allows passion & love to flow freely from the heart. A useful crystal for assisting in communication matters.
Jade: Very symbolic in ancient China for attracting love. Jade is the symbol for harmony, beauty, health, wealth and wisdom. It can assist in balancing emotions & purification. The green colour is also associated with the heart chakra.
Carnelian: A great motivator that enhances physical energy. A real pick me up. It can assist you in stepping into personal power to create success, joy & happiness by opening up the heart. The deep orange colour is associated with the sacral chakra.
Citrine: The stone of abundance. This is one of my favourites to work with. I am especially drawn to its sunny yellow colour. Citrine has the power to dispel fear, anxiety and anger. Replacing it with joy & happiness. It can assist in building self-confidence & bringing about fresh starts. Citrine is very good at clearing blocked energy in the solar plexus.
Work with these crystals any way you are drawn to. I place clusters on my desk whilst I work or I carry them on me in my pocket or round my neck. You may wish to lie down & place them over the associated chakra whilst you relax. Go with your intuition there is no right or wrong way to use crystals & they won’t cause you any harm. Don’t forgot to regularly cleanse your crystals to clear any residue build up.
Lots of sparkling crystal love,
