    When you’re struggling to get clarity because of something you’re holding on to, letting go can be easier said than done. In this free guided meditation, you will cut your cords to release the past and move forward. 


    When we’re looking for guidance about something that’s bothering us, using a pendulum can be a cheap and easy way to gain insight.

    A pendulum is a weight attached to a string – usually a crystal on a single length of chain, but you can also use a necklace that you already own. It just needs to achieve the swinging motion which will give you the answers you’re looking for.

    People have different opinions on how a pendulum gets its answers, and they fall into these 3 theories:

    ⋆☽  Like muscle testing, our body itself is its own pendulum and will physically respond to truth or lies. Some people believe that the swinging of a pendulum comes from our body being its own truth-teller and making the pendulum swing a certain way with small muscle movements. As we already know – our beliefs create our reality – so if we believe something to be true then there’s a good chance of it manifesting in our lives in the future.

    ⋆☽  Some people also think that the pendulum swing is determined by our energy. As our life force, prana or qi flows through us, we can direct it towards our pendulum with our intention. By giving the pendulum our attention with a certain question in mind, our energy could be making the pendulum move as a result.

    ⋆☽  Pendulums are often used as a method of Divination, ie, to communicate with entities on the “other side” such as Angels, spirit guides, relatives in spirit, etc. This could also include getting answers from our higher self, and some people believe that these energies are communicating with us through the pendulum.

    However you believe the pendulum gets its swing, many people rely on them as a way to accurately predict their future…

    If you buy a pendulum that instantly caught your eye, you’re more likely to form a close connection with it and get reliable answers as a result. I searched for a pendulum for years, until I eventually stumbled across an Obsidian point unlike any I’d seen before while I was at a crystal workshop. After years without a pendulum, I knew it was finally time!

    If you go to mediumship circles or psychic development classes, the phrase “receiving hand” will be thrown around a lot. It’s based on the belief that you’re more connected to spirit through one side of your body than the other. For me, it’s my left hand. If you’re unsure what your receiving hand is, go with whichever instinctively feels right and then try to keep using the same hand going forward.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-38

    For me, I know that clockwise means YES and anticlockwise means NO. To find out what your directions will be, start asking the pendulum questions that you know have a definite yes or no answer. For example, “I am female” or “the walls around me are white”. Some people will find that their pendulum swings back and forth or sideways instead of in a circular motion. Practice makes perfect, so make sure that you keep using your pendulum to allow it to become closely attuned with your energy. It will take some time to consistently provide accurate answers, so don’t be discouraged if it’s a bit haywire at first!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-40

    The questions you ask to your pendulum need to be closed yes/no questions instead of ambiguous and open-ended how/what/why/when/where questions. Your pendulum can only give you binary answers, so keep this at the front of your mind when you’re asking questions about your future. As an example – people use a pendulum to ask if a certain food is good for them by holding it over the item, and if it’s a healthy high vibration food then the pendulum will answer YES. To get more than a simple yes/no answer, see point no. 6!

    It’s so important to get in the right headspace so that you’re not focusing on the answer that you’d like and subtly interfering with the pendulum’s direction. I like to rest my elbow on a solid surface to prevent this from happening as much as possible. I also like to close my eyes as I meditate and ask the pendulum a question, because that way I don’t know which answer it’s given until I open my eyes. Our pendulums are really sensitive to our energy – which is powered by our thoughts – so we need to be super careful not to interfere with their motion.

    If you want more than a basic YES/NO answer, you can use a dowsing wheel. Just hold your pendulum above the centre-bottom of the wheel and then see which answer it directs you to. By using a letter dowsing wheel you can spell out the name of your spirit guide, and similarly, with a chakra dowsing wheel you can find out which of your chakras are imbalanced. I have created a number, letter and chakra dowsing wheel pack which you can download and use for free…

    As with the rest of your crystal collection, it’s so important to ensure that any energy they absorb doesn’t interfere with their power in the future. To maintain the accuracy of your pendulum, make sure that you’re cleansing it regularly with an effective energy clearing method.

    A pendulum is another great tool in our spiritual toolkit to provide guidance when we feel stuck or confused. Using the dowsing wheels provided above will enable you to get more than a simple yes/no answer and can unlock the door to deeper spiritual connection. Once you’ve found your perfect pendulum, remember to keep practising. Be curious about how your pendulum works for you, because when it does, it can help to guide you through the rest of this lifetime!



  • 5 Ways You Know The Law Of Attraction Is Working

    When you’re struggling to get clarity because of something you’re holding on to, letting go can be easier said than done. In this free guided meditation, you will cut your cords to release the past and move forward. 


    Waiting for what you want isn’t the funnest part of manifesting…

    As I always say about Divine timing, our manifestation will arrive at the best time for everyone involved and once we’re truly ready for it. Of course, it’s easy to see this with the gift of hindsight – but sometimes it can feel disheartening when the wait is so long.

    Thankfully, the Universe will send us pointers to say: “Hi… I see you, and I’m cooking up your manifestation. Yes, it will be with you soon. Don’t panic or give up just yet!”

    These are 5 of the ways that you can know if the Law of Attraction is really working…

    ⋆☽ You’re beginning to feel angry and frustrated ☾⋆

    I define anger as an emotion of change.

    When we’re finally fed up of something – a situation we’re in or the behaviour of another person – we get so frustrated that we start to make changes. These changes can create just the perfect entry point that our manifestation needed.

    Feeling our own anger and frustration shows that we’re no longer agreeing to our current situation and are ready to move on to the next level. As we’ll only ever get what we’re ready for, this sensation is a positive symptom that you’re ready for the Law of Attraction to work its magic.

    ⋆☽ You don’t need your manifestation ☾⋆

    Need is an emotion of lack.

    When our hope for the future is fuelled by faith rather than desperation, we are able to surrender and let miracles happen – instead of clinging tightly on to an outcome because we’re unhappy with our current life.

    This is why gratitude is so important for the Law of Attraction…

    Being grateful for what we already have will erase our need to grasp the future because we’re not coming from a place of lack. Quite the opposite! When you’re contented and grateful, you’re creating your future moments from a place of abundance.

    Once you’re happy enough without your manifestation, something magical happens where it appears in your life at the moment when you wanted it the least.

    ⋆☽ You can feel a new vibration ☾⋆

    As you let go of old energy which was once blocking your manifestation, you’ll feel like a lighter and happier version of you. Things won’t bother you as much as they used to, and you’ll react to things with more compassion instead of leaping into judgement and criticism. When this starts happening, it’s a great sign that you’re vibrating from a higher energetic frequency.

    It’s not reasonable to expect a new life as the same person that you were, so you’ll need to let go of emotional baggage and BE the person who belongs with your manifestation. As the Law of Attraction says, we need to resonate with the vibration of what we want to attract…

    When you feel that you’re transforming into a new person, this is a great sign that you’re getting closer to your new manifestation.

    ⋆☽ You disassociate with the life around you ☾⋆

    This is the most unnerving side effect of the Law of Attraction!

    Our own life won’t seem to fit us anymore when we’re energetically ready for a new one.

    Activities we used to enjoy no longer feel fulfilling because we’re standing at a crossroads between our old life and our new one. Some people call this phase a “test” but I prefer to think of it as a transition period.

    Matter moves slowly so there will be some temporal delay as our manifestation travels across the physical plane.

    ⋆☽ Visible signs from the Universe ☾⋆

    When a big change is coming, you will start to get indicators from the Universe.

    If you’re seeing Angel numbers or noticing synchronicities, like strange coincidences that seem too good to be true, then it’s likely that your manifestation is almost complete.

    Pay attention to what happens when you’re thinking about your manifestation – whether a feather falls at your feet or a white butterfly lands on your arm – because these precious moments of serendipity are designed to give you comfort…

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    The Law of Attraction is always working for you – but it’s our job to steer it in the direction we want it to go in. If we can stay faithful, be grateful and remove the energies which drive us to seek more out of need, then we can become a powerful magnet for all of the good things we desire.



  • This Is What Moving To Glastonbury Is Like

    When you’re struggling to get clarity because of something you’re holding on to, letting go can be easier said than done. In this free guided meditation, you will cut your cords to release the past and move forward. 


    Taking a leap of faith will look different depending on who’s taking the leap.

    For me, it was moving to a new town that I’d never been to before based on nothing but intuition and a good feeling in my belly. Fortunately – I was not disappointed!

    Amazing things can happen when you follow your internal guidance system instead of drifting along with the status quo. Following your heart to where it wants to go is the only sure way to get to a destination which fulfils you, instead of ending up in a life that doesn’t really feel like your own.

    With that in mind – what can you expect if you’re considering a move to Glastonbury?

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-29

    And a lot of them! As soon as you arrive in Glastonbury and pick up a copy of the local Oracle guidebook, you’ll see that there are more spiritual events happening here than you can shake a smudge stick at…

    It’s the perfect place to visit if you’re looking to expand your spiritual horizons and sample new practices like sound baths, group chanting, Goddess retreats, transformational workshops and Shamanic healing. Some events are very reasonably priced, like 2-hour Crystal Healing workshops at Goddess House for just £5 (run by Zena and Neil of Crystal Heaven) whereas longer 2/3 day courses will carry a higher price tag.

    Whether you’re at the start of an awakening or experienced in all things esoteric, you’ll have many opportunities to try new ancient healing practices that you’d struggle to find practitioners of elsewhere.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-30

    You may have heard Glastonbury being called “the heart chakra of the Earth” and it’s somewhere that definitely has a certain ‘vibe’. I’ve spoken to a few people who reported a phase of intense emotional release (ie, grief and crying) shortly after moving here as lower vibrations moved out of their energy field. They could then feel more in tune with the town’s high vibrational frequency, which legend says is due to Ley lines crossing to create an energetic hotspot. Reportedly, this is also why Stonehenge was built nearby.

    The energy (with the culture) attracts many sensitive, empathic and intuitive people here each year to absorb the healing frequencies and worship at the sacred sites. If you feel sensitive to energy – you may experience headaches, intense emotion and a particularly strong connection to Mother Earth when you come and stay.

    The locals that you find here would not be found in other, more traditional, English towns. There are usually musicians playing in the streets and people walking barefoot is commonplace. Pop-up stalls are likely to feature fortune tellers, tarot card readers and jewellers, and you’ll often pass by people crouched on the pavement drawing in chalk.

    Eccentricity is the norm here and it’s a place where you can let go, breathe, and appreciate one another for your uniquely expressed attributes. After all, if everyone were the same, the world would be a very boring place!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-32

    If you’re vegetarian or vegan, you’ll feel blessed with the number of options here. From the organic supermarket to the delicious Rainbow’s End, you’ll definitely find healthy and delicious treats to eat. Just strolling down the high street you’ll cross multiple chalkboards inviting you in to try their fresh vegan bakes.

    I’ve been to a few coffee shops here which served their own homemade oat, almond and hemp milk in their drinks, and many will also include rare and raw ingredients sourced from overseas. Of course, you can expect to pay a higher price for these but your gut will be grateful for the investment!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-33

    Before I came here, a friend of mine said that it was “easier to get crystals than socks” and that summary still sticks with me – because he was exactly right! You won’t find an M&S here, or many chain shops at all for that matter… but you will see a ton of crystal shops. If you come to Glastonbury without a crystal collection then you’ll be tempted to leave with at least one.

    In addition to the high street stores, there will often be crystal stalls lining the streets selling small tumblestones, large geodes and raw chunks of citrine, quartz and rose quartz. These sparkling displays will be sure to catch your eye as you walk past.

    The first time that I went to do my weekly food shop at Tesco, it felt like everyone in there was just popping in from a local festival. It felt like that; except that there was no festival on, and it was just my first glimpse of the hippy culture here…

    You can expect to see long floaty dresses, colourful harem pants, and beaded dreadlocks in abundance as you walk around, and during solstice season the floral crowns come out too! My fiancé, Ally, said to me when I was trying to choose an outfit: “you could go out wearing a blanket here and no-one would blink an eyelid” and he was probably right…

    The free and open culture of Glastonbury is undoubtedly one of the greatest things about it, and it’s what makes so many people feel instantly at home here.

    The 1970’s hippy vibe that Glastonbury festival was born of is still prevalent here, and long may it continue to thrive and delight us – whether it’s a fallow year or not!



  • How To Overcome Writer’s Block To Share Your Message

    The struggle is real.

    Anyone who has ever written anything wordy – like an essay, dissertation or book – will know the frustration of writer’s block. It’s something that we will all face during our writing career, no matter how brief it may be!

    In the last year, as I’ve been writing my book proposal, I’ve faced this debilitating demon on many occasions. Like most people I respond with procrastination, ie, checking Instagram and chatting away on WhatsApp; but this only leads to even more frustration that I’ve whittled away precious time without getting any closer to my word count goal…

    So, how do we overcome it?

    ✎ Start with a strong morning routine

    Y’all know I love my mornings. But there’s a reason that I get up at 5am every day, and it’s because I have a solid morning ritual which I know for a fact makes me more productive. My highlights include: meditation, writing a gratitude list, journalling, exercise, and planning the day ahead.

    Obviously, you don’t need to get up that early if you don’t want to, but starting your day with intention and prioritising your mindset will set a strong tone for the day ahead – before everyone else tries to set the tone for you. Taking control of your day from the very beginning creates a pattern of being proactive rather than reactive, and ensures that you’re starting off on the right foot before your pen touches paper.

    ✎  Eat consciously

    Sugar highs and caffeine crashes can plunge us into an energy sinkhole if we aren’t careful with what we put into our mouth on writing days.

    Personally, I try and save “treat” foods for the weekends because I know that if I have a bag of sweets (my fave!) during the week then I’m writing off the rest of the day in a creative sense. It’s very hard to bounce back from a sugar crash, and it’s easier to avoid one altogether.

    Find a workday diet that works for you and fuel a productive mind with foods that will release energy slowly throughout the day.

    ✎  Give yourself less time

    If we have the luxury of extra time then we’ll use it to daydream and find other things that we’d rather be doing.

    Yet, when there’s something that we have to get done by a certain time then we can magically squeeze it into whatever time pocket is available. This is Parkinson’s Law.

    We will always utilise the full time that we have available for a task, so even if you didn’t have much time or much to write, then you would probably still manage to finish the job and meet your deadline.

    Having too much time can indulge the writer’s block. Whereas having less time forces you to overcome it; and if you don’t like what comes out of you the first time, then you can always reword it later – but at least you’ll have something on the page!

    ✎  Set a daily word count (a realistic one)

    As with everything in life, if you don’t know where you’re going then it’s very difficult to get there…

    In the same vein as the tip above, if you have a tight deadline then there’s less room for writer’s block because you literally have to get something written in order to finish the work on time. Writer’s block can just mean thinking that we haven’t got anything “good enough” to write down, but actually, if we were forced then we could string a few sentences together.

    Setting a daily word count ensures that you have to continue writing in order to meet your target, and with only a certain number of hours to do it in – you won’t have the chance to succumb to writer’s block.

    The best way is to write down what you can come up with in that moment, and then iterate, iterate, iterate later through your edits. By then, you might have the inspiration flowing to swap it for a better sounding sentence instead.

    ✎  Change your scenery

    A change of scenery can move enough energy to shift your writer’s block.

    We will all get bored if we’re in the same spot for too long, so writer’s block can be a symptom of too much time spent in one place. When I’m feeling fed up or stifled, I’ll move into another room or even snuggle up in bed with my laptop if I’m feeling cold, ill or sleepy. If you’re creative too, then it’s likely that your surroundings affect you so make sure that you’re somewhere which makes you feel open and inspired.

    Going out to a coffee shop or library is my favourite way to break up a day, especially if I get sick of seeing housework to-do’s out of the corner of my eye. Co-working spaces are great too and have the added bonus of meeting like-minded freelancers and entrepreneurs. Change your scenery to change your flow.

    ✎  Leave your phone in another room

    This tip is the golden egg…

    I don’t know about you, but my phone is my biggest distraction. By far!

    The only way that I can be sure not to reach for IG or FB when my writing flow pauses for a hot second is to keep it in a different room. Preferably on a different floor. It’s the only way to stay distraction-free!

    Laptops connected to the internet come with their own distractions too, of course, but there are so many useful tools available now. You can limit what you see on social media to add your own content without getting tempted into clickbait news articles. Some of my favourites are the “Remove recommended YouTube videos” Chrome extension and the “Kill News Feed” Chrome extension for Facebook.

    Et voila! 

    Hopefully, by implementing some of these tips you can feel distraction-free, creatively inspired and full of beans in an environment that you love.

    Writer’s block can be hard, but we all have our own important message for the world – and if your purpose is greater than your predicament, you’ll always find the tools that you need within. When you’re feeling blocked, just try to get something down and then come back to it later to edit and re-edit if you need to.

    There really is no limit! Other than the ones that we put on ourselves.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    These are the tips that I use every day to overcome my writer’s block. Do you have any of your own which haven’t been mentioned? If so, let me know in the comments – you never know who it might help!
