    The skills and secrets you’ve learned in past lifetimes have already been coded within you. In this free guided meditation, you will reconnect with your galactic family and discover where your soul has lived in other lifetimes as a Starseed.


    Finally realising what kind of Starseed you are can bring a sense of inner peace and belonging, or at least an “aha” moment where things start to make a little bit more sense.

    As there are so many different constellations in the Universe, there’s probably an unlimited number of Starseed varieties. Today, I’m only going to talk about a few of the main ones that I come across most often…

    There are many other known types of Starseed I’m not going to mention here that might still apply to you, including Draconian, Venusian, Martian, Andromedan, Polarian, Hadarian and Agarthan to name a few (phew)!

    I’ve also made a fun quiz to see what type of Starseed you might be, but the most important thing of all is that you use your intuition and feel for the galactic family you’re most drawn to. If you can’t choose between more than one type, it can mean that you’re a hybrid! For example, I’m a hybrid of Pleiadian and Syrian.

    So, are you ready? Take the quiz and then read about the 5 most common types of Starseed – Pleiadian, Orion, Arcturian, Sirian and Lyran – below!

    The Pleiades is a constellation also known as the Seven Sisters. Like all Starseeds, there are certain physical characteristics associated with them, and this type is known for often being tall and slim with long limbs. They might also have blonde hair and blue eyes, with a heart-shaped face and a small nose.

    These people are pure humanitarians who are filled with love and understanding. Earth seems overly harsh to them because their nature is to be gentle, peaceful and loving. From being in this Earth environment where society is much tougher than where they originated from in the Pleiades, they may become people pleasers who feel overwhelmed by their sensitivity.

    They have come here with a mission to teach about love and light, and by doing so, they will assist with the healing and ascension of this planet. That is what they feel a deep calling to do. They generally exude a feminine energy with the natural gift of intuition that most Starseeds benefit from.

    Pleiadians live on a higher frequency of love and creativity, and are accustomed to a matriarchal society where women are highly honoured. While being similar to humans in many ways, they are more evolved physically and spiritually. These sensitive lightworkers bring beauty, peace and enlightenment to Earth once they can peel away their human conditioning to expose their true selves.

    Arcturians are from the star Arcturus, which is a red giant in the Bootes constellation. Some people believe that when we die, we pass through the Arcturian realm as we return to the spirit world; and similarly as we return back to life during the reincarnation process. The Egyptian god of wisdom, Thoth, is also said to have a home in Arcturus.

    You might recognise these Starseeds embodied as humans by their darker skin, low body temperature and low blood pressure for no apparent reason. They are great public speakers, and so, often find themselves in leadership positions at work. They recognise technology as something important which can help them with their mission here on Earth, which is to create a new society where technology and spirituality work together to reach as many souls as possible and help them to advance.

    These naturally highly intelligent souls often have a knack for mathematics – particularly sacred geometry – and any similar fields like technology, architecture, science, statistics or medicine. They love to plan and are compassionate on the inside, but dealing with emotions is not their strong suit.

    They can be guarded, turn to anger quickly as their first response, and may seem arrogant or egoic. They are often viewed by others as confident people who are highly driven for success and unafraid of death. Arcturus is known for being the most advanced nation in our galaxy.

    These Starseeds come from the Orion constellation. Many will have migrated there from other star systems, so it’s quite common to be an Orion hybrid who was previously from another constellation before arriving on Orion. There are multiple different planets in the Orion constellation that you may have incarnated on, including Mintaka, which was covered in sparkling waters filled with whales and dolphins. However, this planet is no longer in existence.

    Orion Starseeds are often born under the sign of Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn, with bright blue or green eyes which draw people in. They are intelligent with a good sense of humour, so they can become popular for this reason. Although, when it comes to their emotional expression they struggle and can come off as cold because they’re very self-controlled and reserved.

    Their main challenge as humans is to feel their emotions more and open up to others, which will help them to avoid energetic blockages. A key characteristic of these Starseeds is that they are obsessed with learning and knowledge. They are often entrepreneurs who want to lead and inspire others in their own unique way, and they are vehement in their pursuit of attaining knowledge and wisdom.

    The pursuit of knowledge is often their greatest passion in life. This can mean that they’re known for jumping from one thing to another because once they’ve learned everything that they possibly can in a certain job or career, they want to move on to the next one to understand something new.

    Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky, sometimes known as Alpha Canis Majoris, aka the Dog Star Sirius. This means that you can probably spot a Sirian Starseed by their love for canines, such as dogs and wolves. These spiritual people are down to Earth, level-headed and very hard to make angry.

    Like Orion’s, they don’t express their emotions well and can find it difficult to communicate in their relationships. They can be seen as closed off daydreamers. They are likely to have always had an interest in magic, witchcraft, the occult and different healing modalities.

    They are very creative, so they love the arts and writing, and may feel a particularly strong mission to save the planet and fight for animal rights. Their creativity may also mean that they have a penchant for tattoos and piercings because they love any way that they can express themselves creatively as individuals through their clothing and accessories.

    Similarly to Orion Starseeds, they are task-oriented with a good sense of humour, and they may feel a deep connection to water, including whales, dolphins and mermaids.

    They may also have Lyran Starseed traits, such as the cat or lion-like features.

    They’re more connected with their internal world than the external world and are very peaceful and intuitive. These mystical, magical people are often seen as gothic and hippy types.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (5)

    Lyran Starseeds come from the Lyra constellation which is said to be where the first humans came from. The strongest identifier of a Lyran Starseed is their cat-like features, for example, having upturned almond eyes, and they might also be keen on cats as animals.

    They often incarnate as fire signs, Leo, Sagittarius and Aries, and are fiercely independent. They’re hard workers who are very connected with their bodies so they enjoy being physical; they adore great food and embrace their sexuality. They are athletic and typically love exercise.

    They need more sleep than most people and while they are social, they are not necessarily the life of the party. They are known to be risk takers, while still staying grounded the rest of the time.

    Lyran Starseeds have an innate desire to travel and explore – think of it like a cat-like curiosity! They are said to be the oldest souls in our galaxy who played an important role in humanity by bringing fire to the Earth and sending the first souls to Atlantis.

    They embody their Divine Masculine energy which makes them spontaneous, driven and persistent with generally high energy. They are natural leaders and “people watching loners.” They are here to express their independence and pursue their dreams fearlessly.

    I hope this makes it clearer to you which Starseed heritage you might have, and as I said at the start – it’s possible for you to be a hybrid!

  • Are You A Starseed? What It Means & Why You Might Be One…

    Get A free meditation

    The skills and secrets you’ve learned in past lifetimes have already been coded within you. In this free guided meditation, you will reconnect with your galactic family and discover where your soul has lived in other lifetimes as a Starseed.


    If you’ve ever heard the term “Starseed” and wondered what it means, this one is for you.

    It can take years or lifetimes for someone to figure out that they’re a Starseed, and while that knowledge lays latent within their soul, they’re not able to fully access what this special cosmic connection can give them.

    That’s why it’s important to share this information about what a Starseed actually is for the people who feel different in some way – but don’t know why.

    For example, I’ve never felt at home anywhere and that sense of “home” has always been a big issue for me. I realise now that maybe it’s because Earth isn’t where my soul originated from.

    Or maybe you have an obsession with the stars and astrology, and you’ve always loved looking up at the night sky. This might be because you find that sense of familiarity and belonging in different galaxies other than this one.


    Life on Earth has huge potential for expansion, so Starseed souls have come here from other galaxies where more evolved life forms exist. Specifically, more spiritually evolved life forms. They come here with a mission and with the challenge of serving, elevating and expanding the consciousness of this human species.

    There are different types of Starseed, so take the quiz in my next blog What Type Of Starseed Are You? to see which family you might be in 👽

    ⋆☽ What is a Starseed? ☾⋆

    An advanced soul who was originally from a different star system. They reincarnate on Earth (usually many lifetimes over) to serve in the awakening of human souls. However, like all souls who reincarnate on Earth, they are born with amnesia.

    This means that they will need to figure out where they came from through a Divinely timed process of uncovering, and much of the truth about their origin may never be fully revealed.

    These high vibration souls raise the frequency of the people they enlighten and heal, thereby raising the vibration of Earth as a whole. However, being inherently different from the majority of human souls on this planet, while having such a big mission to fulfil, can be challenging to say the least.

    Starseeds can be defined either by their similarity to a certain group of Starseeds or their difference to the rest of humanity.

    ⋆☽ How do you know if you’re a Starseed? ☾⋆

    There are various ways that you might resonate with being a Starseed, which could include:

    👽 Having a body temperature that is unusually high or low. Maybe you’re always chilly and your hands feel cold to touch, even when everyone else around you feels warm. The same is true for your body giving off an excessive amount of heat, and both of these happen because Starseeds were originally acclimatised to life elsewhere.

    ✨ You feel older and wiser than most of the people you come across. You feel as though you can see through the fabric of humanity to what needs to be healed and what needs to happen for a collective expansion.

    👽 To be able to carry out their work as a great healer and teacher, empathy is essential for Starseeds. More than just being an empath, they’re able to transmute the pain of others and illuminate it as the lesson that it really is for the person who’s suffering. Their energetic frequency is such that they naturally diffuse tense situations and make other people feel at peace just by being near them.

    ✨ Starseeds often come to Earth with a special gift to help them fulfil their mission. This could range from being an amazing singer, to an excellent writer, or an incredible painter. These special gifts will be able to help the Starseed attract attention and share the message they came here to share for the benefit of humanity. Through doing this work that feels soul-aligned and easy for them, they’ll be able to raise the frequency of people who come into contact with it.

    👽 Higher connection to other realms and frequencies. Starseeds usually have a knack for channelling due to having a closer connection to other realms and galaxies than most other souls. This channelling usually comes through their ‘special gift’ that I talked about above, which is part of what makes their work so magical and well received.

    Listen to your intuition! If you feel drawn to reading about Starseeds and learning what qualifies you as one – it’s probably because you are one. Something deep inside of you already knows it and it’s your human brain that is looking for the confirmation before you can accept it. Your feelings know you best of all, and they can tell you if you’re a Starseed better than anyone else can.

    These are some general traits of being a Starseed, and there are other specific character definitions depending on which galaxy the Starseed originates from – so, after reading this, do you think that YOU are a Starseed?

    If the answer is yes, make sure that you read the next blog What Type Of Starseed Are You? 👽



  • What Type Of Business You Should Start Based On Your Zodiac Sign

    Get A free meditation

    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. 


    Astrologers everywhere will be cursing me for this, but I want all spiritual people to know that they have the chance to start a business based around their own passions and gifts.

    Plus, I thought it would be fun!

    Most of us know that there’s so much more to our astrology than just our Sun sign (read How Your Sun, Moon and Rising Zodiac Sign Affect Your Personality here), so feel free to check out your Moon and Rising sign too. We can often resonate with those as strongly or even more strongly than we do with the sign that everyone knows us as. 

    If you could start your own dream business that makes your soul sing, what would it be?

    Known for being bold, fiery and formidable, an Aries will probably be happy in any position where they can be the boss!

    Entrepreneurs under this sign definitely won’t like to have a ruler because they have strong opinions about the best direction forward, with a huge amount of strength and tenacity to push things in the direction they want to go in.

    People under this star sign – like all fire signs – have a lot of energy too, so they can be amazing in the fitness industry where they can burn off some of that energy and inspire others to push their limits. They can use their strong leader archetype to be the CEO of a large corporation in any field that they’re most interested in.

    But, it’s essential that it’s a field they’re interested in because these fiery souls will not push forward and reach their full potential if it’s not something they feel passionate about. This sign will probably be happy wherever they feel passionate, can lead others, and can call all the shots.

    Unlike Aries, Taureans do have the ability to plod forward with something that they don’t feel inherently excited about. That’s because this earth sign is the strong and steady bull, who will do whatever it takes to meet their long term goals; even if it requires some sacrifice and hard work that they don’t feel emotionally invested in.

    Slow, steady and secure is the name of the game for this star sign, and they revel in the achievements that they can create from hard work and perseverance. This star sign is also known for their organisational skills, so they may enjoy a role like organising weddings, events, or even accountancy for those with a numbers mind, where they can organise other people’s business documents and financial figures.

    They are also ruled by Venus, which makes them prone to loving the finer things in life. Naturally drawn to aesthetics, beauty and luxury, this sign will thrive in a company where they can surround themselves with beautiful luxury clothing, high-end homes or 5* resorts. Notorious food lovers, you might also find a Taurus owning a vineyard or fine dining restaurant.

    Any company which appeals to their senses and offers high class luxury will feel like a pleasure for a Taurus to own.

    Geminis excel at communication! In my Tarot readings, I always call them the communicators of the zodiac.

    Therefore, entrepreneurs born under this sign will delight in a business where they can use their intellect and spend plenty of time being social and networking. They love to discuss ideas, so any business within the field of communication should be a great fit for a Gemini.

    You might find these entrepreneurs starting up a PR company or a marketing business. You might find them on stage talking about their books or research. Gemini entrepreneurs will need mental stimulation; so they’re likely to create businesses around this, where they can learn, discuss, develop and grow – and help others to do the same.

    If they can identify a gap where people need help refining and sharing their message, a Gemini entrepreneur will come to the rescue and have a natural gift for this kind of work – which will lead to a fulfilling and booming business for them.

    Cancers are caring by nature, so they’re likely to create a business that is going to nurture people’s hearts and souls. They’ll love looking for ways to help people eat better, sleep better, and take time for self-care.

    They have a very motherly vibe within the zodiac, and with their sensitive, watery nature they’re able to tune in to what people need in order to heal them. They’re also very empathic.

    These kind of skills are underrated in entrepreneurship, but are an incredible bonus for being able to sense what people need and want – and therefore, will spend money on.

    You might find a Cancerian entrepreneur setting up wellness retreats, holistic programs, and coaching on self-care. They want to heal and help people, and their intuitive antennae is perfectly primed to assist them with figuring out how to do this through their soul-aligned services and offerings.

    Whereas some signs are happy to take a more subtle approach to leading an entrepreneurship venture, this isn’t going to be the case for Leos.

    Leos are known for loving the spotlight, being proud, bold and taking centre stage. This means that people born under this sign might be attracted to businesses where they can be in the spotlight; not only as a leader, but in any industry where they can perform.

    This could be in a more traditional sense, like a performing arts or entertainment company, or in a more indirect way such as being a sales person or realtor where they can perform and take the microphone in a 1:1 setting.

    Setting up a stage school or helping people to feel confident with dancing, singing and acting could be a dream come true for a fiery Leo who loves to express themselves and help others do the same in a confident way. To them, this kind of role would probably feel much more like fun than work!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (4)

    Virgos take organisation to a whole new level. Perfectionists at heart, people born under this star sign feel most at peace when everything around them is perfectly in its place.

    This means that their business is likely to run like a well-oiled machine, with every detail thought about and taken care of to make everything work as efficiently as possible. This will lead to an outstanding customer experience. There’s very unlikely to be forgotten orders and mishaps in a business run by a Virgo!

    Out of the earth signs, this is the one which is most associated with a skill for expression. They can be great thinkers, writers and teachers. You’ll be pleased to know that the Forbes Billionaires list has more Virgos than any other star sign – this is no accident…

    They’re known for being obsessive, which can lead to great success in business when they find what it is that they want to obsess over. Their attention to detail can lend itself well to working in careers where operations are important, like logistics, technology and any kind of agency work. You can always trust that your money is in good hands when you trust a Virgo to deliver something that you need from their business.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (6)

    Libra is ruled by Venus (like Taurus) which means that people born under this star sign can also be partial to the little luxuries in life.

    As entrepreneurs, they’re likely to find a huge amount of joy working in creative ventures where they can make things beautiful and aesthetically pleasing for their customers. They usually have a great eye for what looks good, which can lead to them setting up businesses in interior design, fashion or art.

    They love beauty and balance in all its forms, and that includes being able to harmonise things so that they look visually stunning to the eye. This sign has been endowed with a huge amount of grace and they have a reputation for being socialites who have a knack for attracting admirers.

    This is partly due to their diplomacy skills, which can make Libra entrepreneurs fair leaders and enjoyable bosses to work under. They’re unlikely to cause conflict and will bend over backwards to avoid or resolve conflict with their customers.

    In creative pursuits where they can nurture an atmosphere of perfect harmony, beauty and balance, a Libra is likely to tap into their greatest innate skills.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (7)

    Scorpios can be sassy, have a sting in their tail, and are known for their sexuality. This can mean that a Scorpio entrepreneur is drawn to any kind of work which will exhibit these parts of themselves.

    For example, you might find a Scorpio setting up a lingerie business or working with people to help them to express themselves sexually in a more confident way. They are ruled by Pluto which makes them shrewd and determined; and they have the ability to focus more than the other water signs. This can mean that they’re excellent at being analytical and getting right down to the root of the issue – no matter who or what stands in their way.

    They could be excellent at private detective work or in an engineering firm where they can find out the cause of the problem that no-one else has been able to figure out yet. They’re a force to be reckoned with and extremely powerful leaders in business.

    However, they also have the edge (as a water sign) of that sensitive, intuitive layer to them as well, which is their secret sauce for being able to suss out what will work well and what people need most of all.

    With so much power and ambition within them, people under this sign are primed for being entrepreneurs as they’re unlikely to enjoy being led by others. They prefer to be the boss!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (8)

    With itchy feet from birth, people born under this star sign are the most likely to create a location-free business for themselves. They need to be independent, which is a factor that they’re unlikely to negotiate on when it comes to creating a business.

    They love travel more than any other sign and have a deep desire to explore new things due to their planetary ruler Jupiter. They can be known by others as eccentric, colourful, bold and entertaining. They have great minds which can dazzle and delight people they meet, even if they don’t stick around for long!

    They have enormous optimism, which means that they’ll be happy to pick themselves up again and again when a business venture doesn’t go as well as they’d hoped. This optimism can mean that they have wild ideas, so they could become lifestyle entrepreneurs who hit the jackpot with a Bitcoin boom or the latest fad.

    Did I mention that Jupiter is also the planet of luck? Of anyone, this star sign is most likely to become a millionaire overnight because of a lucky decision that they made to invest in something at the right moment.

    Any business which allows them travel, freedom, and the ability to express themselves as a unique individual will delight the wild Sagittarius soul.

    Few signs will be a more formidable opponent in business than a Capricorn on a mission.

    Making money is never going to be a problem for a Capricorn entrepreneur because they’re hard working and ambitious due to their planetary ruler. Saturn does not mess around, and Capricorns are able to storm through problems like nobody’s business.

    They might have trouble fitting into a team because they need to blaze their own path and are often set on achieving high positions of power. This means that many Capricorns are highly likely to become entrepreneurs so that they can finally feel complete in their role as a CEO.

    They’ll have higher goals than just to create a living income and will probably be working towards huge growth in whatever field they have chosen. Organised and astute Capricorns can excel in the most traditional types of businesses like banking, IT and any other business where people are paying them for their organisational skills.

    There is little doubt that a Capricorn can create a successful business if they want to. Their determination and innate manpower makes them a force to be reckoned with. Their business is likely to make a huge impact in whatever industry they choose.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (10)

    People born under this star sign will probably choose to become an entrepreneur due to the promise of freedom and being able to express themselves fully as the unique individual they are.

    Aquarians are often artistic, eccentric and intrigued by the big questions of life, which can draw them towards the metaphysical and spiritual industries for their business. As an air sign, they find it easy to move from one idea to the next, so will probably have no issue adapting their business as necessary and letting go of the things which aren’t working.

    They also have a humanitarian aspect, so they’re likely to be drawn to work which helps people – especially if they’re helping people to expand their understanding and vision for the future. They would do well in a business where they’re trading hope, selling possibilities and showing people that they don’t have to fit into a mould.

    As entrepreneurs, they will thrive in any business which could incorporate these things – like a spiritual or holistic business, art and design, or anything connected to the natural world. Aquarians will always have something unique to offer, and it’s their ease at standing out of a crowd that will make their business so enticing.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (11)

    As the most naturally intuitive sign, people born under Pisces are likely to follow their heart towards a business that is not only fulfilling for them – but which can make a true impact in the world. This will often be done creatively.

    They may not be as concerned about the money aspect as other signs, but their exceptional skills at answering people’s needs and healing their souls with such gentle and precise care (and a freaky ability to deduce what the problem is) will give them the edge in their own business.

    Of all the signs, these types of entrepreneurs are most likely to see a clear way forward with their third eye – even if it doesn’t make sense to anyone else. They are willing to take that risk and pay the price of being misunderstood, because they know deep down what is right for them and what the world needs.

    They might be drawn to art, therapy or anything which helps others; especially if it’s in a non-traditional avenue. If they end up in a windowless office doing a job that isn’t helping anyone, they’re likely to quickly end up feeling stifled and unfulfilled.

    With so much depth and lots of layers to uncover, entrepreneurship will be a great journey for Piscean people, as they can explore different parts of themselves to see their abilities shine in a container of their own creation.

    Their passion for helping will equate to pleased customers who always come back for more. This sign is the perfect example of why intuitive people can be outstanding in business ventures when they’re creating their own rules!

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Don’t fall for the lie that sensitive or spiritual people must be bad at business – it can be the opposite!

    Your intuition is your greatest tool for success and by harnessing the things that you love to do the most and what you have to offer, you can make a tremendous impact on the world with your own entrepreneurial venture.

  • How To Clear Your Heart Chakra

    Get A free meditation

    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. 


    Issues with the energy flow in this chakra can make us feel alone, isolated and unable to connect because when we carry old energetic scars in our heart chakra, we feel afraid to share our feelings authentically for fear of getting hurt again.

    We become guarded, sarcastic and “cold hearted”. A lot of our childhood wounds and disappointments get stuck here, shaping the way we behave as adults.

    Some signs that it’s time for you to clear your heart chakra are:

    💚 You feel uncomfortable sharing yourself authentically – on screen or in person – because you’re afraid of rejection.

    💚 You hide from commitment in relationships, even if you’re not sure why.

    💚 You have issues with giving or receiving affection; physically and/or verbally.

    💚 You’re needy in relationships, because you want someone else to make up for the love that you don’t have for yourself.

    💚 You have a habit of pushing people away through your words and actions, because part of you is scared of getting close to them.

    💚 People have a perception that you’re tough or unemotional, when on the inside you know that you’re actually very sensitive – you just don’t show that part to people.

    💚 You have physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, poor circulation, heart pain, angina, or even problems with your lungs, like asthma.

    If any of these symptoms resonate with you, it’s time to focus on healing and balancing your heart chakra. Here’s how you can clear out any stuck, old energy from this centre…

    Solar Plexus (2)

    This is always my go-to when I need a general energy refresh and any type of chakra clearing. I would also include Reiki healing within this method.

    When I did my Reiki qualification, my teacher sent me a 40-minute audio to use for my own Reiki self-clearings and the impact that it’s had on my energy has been profound. I’ve literally seen changes in the physical world from things manifesting SO much faster after clearing out my chakras with a meditation. I made a shorter cord cutting meditation which you can use to clear your energy.

    There are also chakra clearing meditations on YouTube that focus specifically on the heart chakra. You’ll just need to make sure that you set aside some quiet time to yourself to listen lying down, and that you can find someone whose voice you like the sound of.

    Solar Plexus (1)

    There are crystals that resonate with every chakra, and for the heart chakra, it’s especially easy to use them because you can wear them under your clothes on a necklace all day long without anyone noticing.

    Another way to use crystals for clearing chakra energy is to lie down and place a crystal (or crystals) on that area of your body – in this case, your heart – while combining it with technique no.1. Reiki healers will often place crystals of each colour down their clients’ chakras, so you can do this too if you’re doing a self-clearing at home, and you can also lie with the crystals while you listen to a clearing meditation.

    Green crystals which will work really well for stimulating energy flow through your heart chakra are: 💚 Emerald 💚 Jade 💚 Malachite 💚 Green tourmaline

    Solar Plexus

    Each chakra has a colour associated with it, and for the heart chakra, it’s green.

    It’s a common belief that eating foods of the same colour as the chakra you’re trying to heal can balance the energy flow around that area. This means that to heal the heart chakra, or “Anahata”, you should stock up on foods like: 🥬 Spinach 🥬 Kale 🥬 Broccoli 🥬 Matcha 🥬 Green apples 🥬 Green tea 🥬 Chlorella supplement

    Solar Plexus (3)

    Breathwork will work better here than on any other chakra because it’s the energy centre most linked to the lungs. Anahata (the Sanskrit name for this centre) is also associated with the natural element of air.

    One breathwork exercise you can do to send light, healing energy to your heart centre is called Vyana Vayu.

    1.  Sit comfortably with your back straight, either on your bed or a pillow on the floor.
    2. Hold your hands in the prayer position, “Anjali mudra”, over your heart centre. Focus intently on someone or something that you truly love. Allow yourself to be engulfed by those feelings of love and imagine that feeling shining out of you and filling your aura. This gets your heart centre glowing and flowing.
    3. Then breathe in deeply through your nose as you open your hands and arms out to the side as wide as you can, opening your chest fully. Imagine healing white light flowing through your heart and blending with the green energy of your heart centre.
    4. Take a long exhale while bringing your arms and hands back into prayer position at the heart centre.
    5. Continue this flow 10-15 times focusing on the strong feelings of love as much as you can.

    By the end, you should feel instantly better, in addition to the longer term benefits that Vyana Vayu can have for clearing your heart centre. Prayanama is also known to strengthen your lungs and circulation, as well as having mental health benefits.

    When our heart chakra is out of whack it can make us judgemental, bitter, and prone to holding onto grudges. Making an effort to practice forgiveness will open up your heart and work like a Teflon layer, making it so much harder for any low vibration energy to stick around there.

    Choosing to hold on to old hurt and anger by refusing to forgive only hurts you in the long run. It keeps you stuck in the past and unable to move into the future.

    There are so many ways to practice forgiveness as an energetic release, and it starts today in your everyday life. Let go of things that you do or say wrong, without holding on to mistakes and making them mean something about you – forgive yourself instead.

    Then you can start to forgive other people, either on your own with a practice like Hoʻoponopono prayer or with a professional counsellor who can guide you through regressions or inner child work. Being genuinely willing to forgive people who have been unfair to you will expand your heart chakra exponentially, while making you much less afraid to get hurt again.
