☏ Hello? It’s Your Soul Calling ☏

  • What Past Life Regression Is Like…

    PAST LIVES are something that have always fascinated humanity, and if you’re curious about seeing yours – there’s a way that you can.

    For the first time ever, I had a past life regression after leaving it on my to-do list for many years. I never found the right person to take me through the process until I finally met Daniel @ The Past Life Regressionist.

    I’ve tried and tested so many different types of readings, but this was like no other because I was the one experiencing it all…

    When you have a past life regression, it’s not someone telling you what they see. It’s you experiencing everything that you can see from your own past lives.

    Our past lives are something that we casually refer to in conversation, like saying that people we know are “probably from a past life” (for more about this, see my other blog How To Know If You Have A Past Life Connection With Someone).

    You may also feel inexplicably enamored by certain places or styles, for example, I’ve always felt attached to Japan and when I had my Reiki attunement this just got even stronger. When I looked around my house, I noticed that there were white flying cranes, delicate fan prints and oriental waves emblazoned all over my interiors, bedsheets and mugs.

    The funny thing? I’ve never even been to Japan!


    ⋆☽ What is Past Life Regression? ☾⋆


    If you connect with the idea that your soul comes back to Earth again and again and is born into different bodies over many different lifetimes, then that’s what you’ll be exploring more during your past life regression.

    What many people don’t know about past life regression is that it’s an immensely healing experience.

    We can hold on to so much trauma from our past lives where we were betrayed, killed, silenced or heartbroken in some way, and then that stays in our energy field where it can still affect us.

    By going through this regression experience, we can unlock the wounds which we haven’t been able to fully heal so far because we didn’t make them in this life. 


    ⋆☽ What happens in a regression session? ☾⋆


    As The Past Life Regressionist is based in California and I’m in England, we held our session over Zoom. This would have been the case for any regressionist I used though, as I had my session during the pandemic.

    And if you’re wondering – no, it didn’t lessen my experience at all!

    I also did an interview with the regressionist on my podcast to share more about how taking people through their other lifetimes works. Listen to Time Travel with The Past Life Regressionist here 🎙️

    A questionnaire was sent to me beforehand so that I could get clear on my intentions for the meeting and anything that I particularly wanted to look into, and then the first hour of the session was spent having a consultation.

    I’ve had hypnotherapy before – 3 sessions for generalised anxiety disorder + 2 for fear of public speaking – and the process was very similar to that. The state of hypnosis that I went into also felt the same as when I had hypnotherapy.

    I feel obliged to mention here that there is some serious stigma around what “hypnosis” really means! In absolutely no way are you at the mercy of your regressionist. You are entirely conscious and aware, but you’re just in a very relaxed state that I’d describe as like being in a deep meditation.

    It was very easy for me to get into this state as I was lying on my sofa alone in my own home, under a nice blanket…

    Then, once it’s time to begin after the consultation, your practitioner talks you through the beginning of the regression to relax you and bring you through various states of consciousness; through an Alpha state to a Theta state.

    Once they’ve led you through the meditation, you’ll probably have some visualisation practice where you describe certain images so that you get used to saying exactly what you’re seeing in your mind.

    If you have any clairvoyant ability, then you’ll likely see your past lives in the same way as you see a vision. If you don’t, then it’s kind of like seeing movie images in your mind.

    I also found that my experience was very sentient too, for example, in one lifetime I knew I was poisoned from feeling very dizzy and like the room was spinning, and I was also moved to tears going into one of my other lifetimes because I was so upset at what happened.

    I don’t want any of these to frighten you though because, as I said before, I was completely in control and at any moment in the regression I could have instantly come out of it just by opening my eyes if I wanted to.


    ⋆☽ What did I see? ☾⋆


    Now, for the exciting part! What I actually saw…

    For me, my lifetimes moved in chronological order – ranging from 6000 BC to Victorian times. That said, I only saw 5 lifetimes so you can expect to just see the ones which are the most important for you to acknowledge and heal.

    My session was about 5 hours in total but I didn’t realise it at all. In the first lifetime that I saw, I was an Egyptian heir to the throne. But I wasn’t the son of a ruler as such – my father was a spiritual leader who was in charge at the time.

    There were pyramids (yep, just like you’d imagine) and I was stood watching a human sacrifice. I felt like something wasn’t quite right, as if they didn’t really get what spirituality meant (!) and I found it all very cold and ritualistic. The rituals meant everything in that lifetime.

    I was probably aged between 17-19 in the vision and when I asked myself why I died, that’s when the room started spinning and I realised that I’d been poisoned. Afterwards, I Googled whether human sacrifice took place in Egypt because I’d never heard of it before and that’s where I got the date of 6000 BC.

    On to the next lifetime I went…

    In the next lifetime, I was part of a jungle tribe and my existence was simple and beautiful; everyone was completely in tune with nature and astrology was a sacred part of how we ran our lives. I was being shown this lifetime as an example of how easy life can be and how wonderful it feels to be in flow with nature.

    Not much to learn here, but a welcome reminder of how good life can be.

    The next lifetime…

    Then I moved into the 1600’s where I was a lowly woman who lived in a village of huts between towering tall trees in a forest. A colonial man on a horse came in and set the village alight, making me fall to my knees screaming as I stared at a burning hut with my baby inside.

    I was so overcome with emotion that I started crying, which is unusual for me, but I was genuinely distraught. After doing some healing work with the regressionist, I saw my soul floating out of that body as if I’d managed to finally release the trauma that I’d been holding onto ever since.

    I don’t know about other regressionists, but Daniel has a specific technique to help you release any trauma from each lifetime if you need it.

    Now, for another beautiful lifetime!

    My beloved Japan… being a spiritual teacher and writer, and again, feeling so in tune with nature.

    Between Mount Fuji and the pink cherry blossom, there I was, living my best life! This was one for the memory books, and again – like the jungle life – is something that I can always try to attain while I’m here and in the lives still to come.

    The last one I saw…

    I was born a wealthy lady in a Victorian manor house and because of my class, I was fortunate enough to have an education. My heart was telling me that I wanted to write but the husband of the arranged marriage that I was in thought differently.

    I could see myself talking to the house staff, who were the only people that I really felt connected to, but then I’d get scolded and snatched away from them because we weren’t meant to mix with other classes. The aristocracy which could be seen from the outside as a blessing felt like a suffocating curse.

    I saw us stood by the fireplace arguing and him snatching the paper that I was writing on before throwing it into the fire. Again, emotion started to rise up and I felt furious, as though I absolutely couldn’t stand this man.

    No surprise… more healing and release work was required for this one!


    ⋆☽ What did I learn? ☾⋆


    The main thing I learned is that we still carry so much emotional baggage from other lifetimes.

    I can see how it would be easy to write it off as just illusions and metaphors rising up from our subconscious, which is why I believe it’s important to actually experience it before you make any kind of judgement.

    Otherwise, you have a very incomplete picture to base your assessment on.

    It confirmed some of the things that I already intuitively felt, like my attachment to certain places, and it helped me to reach some of the grief and trauma that I would never have been able to access here and now without the session.

    I saw a common theme of writing which I wasn’t surprised by at all, as writing is still my favourite thing to do. And I also crossed paths with some dear friends that, again – no surprise, were with me through many other incarnations.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Overall, I think that if you’ve been drawn to read this article then it’s for a reason. When we have that intuitive pull towards something like this, it’s because our soul senses that our time is coming and it’s almost ready to dive deeper.

    There might be something in a past life regression session for you that could give you the answers you haven’t found yet. My experience was profound, healing and will stay with me forever.

    If you decide to have one too, I hope that yours will be the same!

  • How To Truly Surrender

    This will be the last blog that I write for a while.

    Whenever you feel like you have too much on your plate – whether it’s been dished up by you or other people – the time and space that you need to make miracles happen isn’t there anymore.

    A crucial part of manifesting is making space, and that applies to your schedule too. It’s especially true if you’re a creative. If you’re trying to create something beautiful in the form of art or words, it soon becomes impossible when your head is swirling with to-do lists and appointments.

    Your channel gets so clogged up that there’s no room for new ideas to come through.

    It can also make you so fixed on a certain path that you can’t surrender to where the Universe wants to lead you next. By being open; being willing to change; being prepared to end things even when they’ve been working well for you – that’s when you are truly surrendering to the possibility of being on your highest path.

    Instead of surrendering to other people, surrender to what YOU really want instead.

    Allow the Universe to sweep through your life and make any changes it wants to make. It will show you these through feelings, signs, and things which aren’t working or don’t feel good anymore. Allow yourself to make these changes by trusting that there’s always more to be revealed in the next phase.

    Allow yourself to have space in your schedule for what you really want to do.

    I also encourage you to have your own keyword for 2021 and mine is “no”.

    When you love yourself enough, that’s when you learn the power of saying no and surrendering to what you truly want at the cost of all the things you don’t.

    That will probably mean not replying to every DM, especially when you can sense that they’re soliciting ones hoping to attach to your energy. It will mean turning down meetings and offers for collaboration, if the payoff doesn’t feel worth the time you’ll be investing. Undoubtedly, it will mean your own desires, wishes and energy becoming sovereign 👑

    Allow yourself to be led by your heart and your desires.

    Allow yourself space for inspiration and guidance by tuning out the noise.

    Allow the Universe to lead you, knowing that life is an ongoing path and that by standing still you will never know what’s next.

     

     

    Ask yourself these questions – they’re good ones to journal on next time you’re setting intentions:

    • What am I actually meant to be doing right now?
    • What has served its time in my life?
    • What is next for me?
    • What do I need to make space for?
    • What do I need to start saying “no” to?

    By knowing these answers, you can realign yourself with what you’re meant to be doing instead of just what you should be doing.

    No one else but you owns your life or knows what you want from your time on this Earth.

    Trust the magical possibility that everything you want can actually come true for you, as long as you’re willing to surrender and say “no” to everything which isn’t it… ✨

  • How Tarot Cards Work: The Fool’s Journey & Story of the Major Arcana

    Tarot reading is an ancient divination practice imbued with arcane wisdom and astrological significance.

    Only when you start reading the Tarot, do you realise the power of its messages to strike at the right time. Having done thousands of card readings over the last 14 years, I know that the cards have a voice and each one has a personality; its own vibration and story to tell.

    The role of storytelling in Tarot is as important as the route on a map, it gets you from A to B: from question to answer for the person you’re reading for.

    The most important story that you’ll need to learn if you want to read Tarot is The Fool’s Journey. This cyclical tale of expansion and contraction is what allows us to understand the point we’re at on our own journey, or where we’ll be arriving in the near future.

    The Fool’s Journey is the chronological structure which has been woven through the 22 Major Arcana cards to represent –

    • important stages of our life
    • lessons which have a profound impact on us
    • and junctures that have the potential to completely change our path

    By understanding the 22 steps of The Fool’s Journey, you can understand your own past, present and future through any Major Arcana cards which show up for you.

    It begins with The Fool (0) starting off on a new journey feeling excited, inspired and free. However, he has no experience yet, so he’s unaware of the fact that he could be about to walk off the edge of a cliff! He is naive when it comes to this new pursuit, but his energy is high and he’s full of good intentions.

    He feels like he has a new opportunity and he’s hopeful about his ability to create anything that he wants. He steps into a new mindset of being The Magician (1) of his own life, using everything that he has available to him (a cup, pentacle, sword, and wand) to create his dream reality. He believes in magic and knows that by co-creating with the Universe, anything is possible.  

    Through this exploration of his metaphysical ability, he meets The High Priestess (2) who shows up in our journey when we start to discover the physical and spiritual world on a deeper level. She is the gatekeeper of our intuition, and she welcomes The Fool into a world of esoteric knowledge and Divine wisdom. She teaches him that not everything which is real can be seen.

    As he starts to question his path, his mother shows up as The Empress (3). She represents our connection with Mother Earth and embodies everything to do with our own fertility, nurturing ability and abundance. His father then appears as The Emperor (4) who sets rules and regulations to ensure that his path is safe and stable. He reminds The Fool of the importance of traditions and structures which can stand the test of time and help to keep him grounded while he navigates this new level of spiritual awakening.

    The Fool looks for teachers who have gone before him to learn about spirituality in a more structured way, which is when he encounters The Hierophant (5). He starts being influenced by external cultures, societies and religions; and he is shaped by the teachers that he’s now learning from. After so long alone, he craves someone to go on this journey with and starts looking for a partnership. He discovers all of the joy that can come from a union as The Lovers (6), which is where he learns how to cooperate and find balance between his own masculine and feminine energies. 

    With everything The Fool has learned so far, he now understands how to be successful using willpower and discipline. He rides The Chariot (7) towards his goals and knows that he can achieve anything he wants with enough ambition and drive. He now possesses inner Strength (8) through the courage that he has developed over time on his journey. Through this strength he learns to tame the unfettered ambition that he had on The Chariot, knowing that sometimes battles are long; he grows more mature and starts to value self-control. 

    Having learned so much already, The Fool seeks solitude in order to go within and reflect on everything he has seen so far. He becomes The Hermit (9) and retreats to try and understand the meaning of why the world works this way. From his time away in isolation as The Hermit, he sees that everything connects and is divinely planned by the Universe. 

    He realises that the Wheel of Fortune (10) means things will happen exactly when they’re meant to and that we’re all subject to fate. This can be good or bad depending on which way the Wheel turns. However, he also knows that the Universe will bring balance to every action and that there will always be Justice (11). He learns to act with integrity because his actions will always have consequences. Justice brings balance into situations and resolution to legal matters; there is always the divine retribution of karma.

    With this support system around him, he feels like he can surrender and pause. As The Hanged Man (12), he is safe to explore the world from different points of view because he knows that the Universe is always there to catch him. At this important stage, he experiences an ego Death (13) where the person that he thought he was falls away. His slate is wiped clean and he enters a whole new phase of his existence where new, more aligned opportunities have space to enter. After everything has been washed away, there is silence and peace. With Temperance (14), he learns to be patient and to find balance without constantly needing to pursue new things. There is not always a need for immediate action.

    Following this pause, he tries to start moving forward again only to realise that he’s still shackled to his past – emotionally, physically or financially. This is limiting his expansion, so The Devil (15) forces him to look at where he is holding himself back and resisting letting go of what no longer serves him. The Tower (16) assists The Fool by shaking him loose from these attachments, using external forces out of his control. This feels terrifying – like the rug is being pulled out from under him – but it’s in his best interest! It’s a favour from the Universe to help set him free.

    The light that illuminates this for him is The Star (17) which provides hope and a sense of renewal; this is the light at the end of the tunnel. The Fool feels inspired to start shining as his true self. However, its opposite – The Moon (18) – represents any fears and subconscious programming that may prevent him from enjoying this new state of bliss. Light casts a shadow and the shadow, in this case, is the old anxiety and fears which may rise to the surface when attempting to shine brightly as The Star.

    Once he has worked through this old fear energy, his light expands and he becomes The Sun (19). He is completely renewed and in touch with his original soul’s purpose. He has nothing to hide from the world and he is not hiding anything from himself. He is in total alignment and illuminating the path forward for others as a result. As his old ego self is now completely shed, he can see his purpose clearly and knows what he is meant to be doing on Earth. Like a final Judgement (20), there’s no room for illusions or false identities. At last, he is rising up and answering his soul’s calling.

    This is the end of the road for The Fool. He has mastered The World (21) and completed his journey. So many lessons have been learned and this chapter is closing once and for all. This is an amazing chance to celebrate all of his victories and everything that he’s accomplished, but like any cycle which closes fully – a whole new one begins and a new journey starts!

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    I hope this helps you to understand the role of the Major Arcana and how they can mirror back to us these lessons in our own life story!

  • 5 Signs That You’re Going Through A Spiritual Awakening

    When strangers slide into my DM’s, often it’s to talk about this – the weird and wonderful things which have started happening to them since they started becoming spiritually aware.

    They’ll be different for everyone, but you can pretty much guarantee that it’s not going to look like the dreamy path to enlightenment that you’d once imagined. Cue the wheels of your life falling off while you’re plunged into a whole new perception of reality, without anyone there to hold your hand…

    The good news is that you’re not the only one!

    Everyone who’s gone through a spiritual awakening will understand how you’re feeling, which is why it’s so important to have a spiritual community around you and a Spiritual Coach if you want to develop your gifts or make a career out of them.

    We never stop awakening, we just unlock new levels.

    You’ll get more used to the process each time and the symptoms will become more subtle – like being thirsty, having headaches, and crazy dreams where you feel like your frequency is shifting while you sleep.

    However, the initial stages of awakening usually feel the most profound and life-altering. If you’re going through any of these right now, know that you’re not alone and you’re not going crazy – you’re just going through your spiritual awakening!


    ⋆☽  You’re more sensitive to alcohol…  ☾⋆


    Or unhealthy food. Or drugs.

    Our body is an amazing intuitive tool, and when you open up spiritually you’ll find that you can gain accurate insights about people and situations based on what you feel.

    This sensitivity can be a wonderful thing to have as an extra spiritual sense, but it’ll make you hella sensitive to any intoxicants which aren’t good for your body.

    If you’ve been feeling more sensitive to certain foods and drinks, it could be a physical symptom that you’re going through a spiritual awakening.


    ⋆☽  You’re in a hermit phase…  ☾⋆


    Going through a spiritual awakening can be really overwhelming, especially if you aren’t aware that it’s happening. As your energy opens up and your intuitive antenna get more sensitive to your surroundings, you may feel an inexplicable urge to hide away for a while.

    Maybe you want to spend more time than usual alone because you’re finding that groups and crowds drain your energy.

    Your mind and body are trying to figure out how they’re going to navigate the world with your new found sensitivity, so going through a hermit phase is a key sign that you’re partway through an awakening.


    ⋆☽  Your favourite pastimes no longer appeal…  ☾⋆


    If activities that you used to love – like shopping, partying or gaming – don’t appeal to you as much as they used to, it might be because of your spiritual awakening!

    The intense shift that you’re experiencing can make other things seem dull and trivial in comparison.

    How you’re changing on the inside might change what you like on the outside, as well as how you choose to spend your time. You could even regret how much time you used to spend on pastimes which weren’t progressing you in any way, and may have even been holding you back.


    ⋆☽  You feel different from friends and family…  ☾⋆


    No matter how close you are with your friends and family, if you’re going through a spiritual awakening then it might be harder to connect with them.

    Aside from the fact that you might be in a hermit phase, it can feel like you’re a different person now while no-one else has changed.

    You might look around and notice that where you used to fit in perfectly, you’re now feeling like the odd one out. Yes, this can seem isolating, but you’re not alone and it’s a common symptom to have during a spiritual awakening.


    ⋆☽  You’re spiritually curious…  ☾⋆


    What have you been Googling lately?

    It’s common to want to learn more about spiritual topics such as being psychic, energy healing, near death experiences and the cosmos as you’re transitioning through an awakening.

    The fact that you’ve read all the way to the end of this article is also a pretty big clue! People who haven’t experienced a spiritual awakening yet are very unlikely to be interested in learning about what it’s like to go through a spiritual awakening.

    If you’re spiritually curious right now, your Google search history might be the final confirmation that you ARE in fact going through a spiritual awakening…

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    It’s normal to feel afraid, confused and alone during your spiritual awakening but you will eventually adjust to life with your new heightened senses.

    There are millions of other people out there going through the exact same thing, so your only job now is to find them!

    I offer support and advice for people going through their awakening with my community and coaching services, so reach out if you’d like to work together and join my communities on Instagram & Facebook! ✨
