  • Release | Use This Cord Cutting Meditation To Set You Free From Energy & Attachments

    After sending out over 3000 Angel Card readings, it’s become clear to me where people get the most stuck in their lives.

    There are a few cards which I don’t get very often at all, and then there are some which are prolific and take up the bulk of my readings.

    I also get messages from people wanting to manifest their exes or bring someone back to them, but – probably to their disappointment – I always tell them that what they should actually think about is cutting the cord…


    I knew that I needed to help with this because when we don’t know how to move forward, we feel stuck. When we feel stuck, we can’t manifest; we can’t see the new opportunities which surround us; and we aren’t grateful for things because we’re thinking about what we have lost.

    The problem with this feeling being caused by our energy is that most of us can’t see it!

    The attachment is there, but we don’t know how to get rid of it. However, with this powerful technique, you can finally reclaim your energy and raise your own vibration by severing ties to the past.

    In this free guided meditation, you will cut your cords to the things and people which no longer serve you.

    As empaths and lightworkers, we can soak in other people’s energy and take on their problems, which means that we need to regularly cleanse ourselves of low vibration energy.

    Like an energy detox, by releasing our attachments and cutting the ties to what has made us feel heavy, we can become weightless.

    Our soul can feel free, and we can breathe again.

    Too much attachment to the past makes it impossible for us to see the potential that still lies in our future…

    Enjoy this cord cutting meditation, and feel lighter as you release the past.

  • How To Clear Your Heart Chakra

    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 that 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 first go-to when I need a general energy refresh and any type of chakra clearing. I would also include Reiki clearing 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 Reiki meditation!

    There are free chakra clearing meditations on YouTube, and there are ones which focus specifically on the heart chakra that you can use. 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 which 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 even noticing.

    Another way to use crystals for clearing chakra energy is to lie down, 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 Reiki self-clearing at home, and you can also lie with the crystals while you listen to a heart chakra 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 to 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 back and your 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 a 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.

    Yoga poses, or “asanas”, that open the chest such as Eagle Pose and backbends can also help to open up the energy flow through your heart chakra.

    Solar Plexus (4)

    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 and energetic release, and it starts today in your everyday life. Letting 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.

    I wrote about 8 Reasons To Forgive The Person Who Hurt You The Most (it’s one of my most read blogs ever) which you can read here

    Solar Plexus (5)

    The last tip is to massage some essential oils into your chest before you go to bed at night. Some essential oils which are known for opening up the heart chakra are 1) Palmarossa and 2) Geranium.

  • What It’s Like Getting Your Reiki Attunement

    I didn’t know that this was coming when I had my Reiki attunement, so I want to let you know what you can expect…

    I’m 9 days in to my homework of self-clearing for 21 days after getting my Level 1 certification in March, but the first “official” attunement was administered on the day. Everyone who goes through their Reiki training will go through an attunement session with their teacher.

    Attunement is literally your energy body being fine-tuned so that it can become an appropriate channel for healing Reiki energy. It raises your vibration and, in the process, will shake any low vibrations loose if they’re lingering in your energy field.

    All of the effects that I’m about to talk about are a manifestation of this energy being awakened, moved, and shifting out of your etheric system.

    My own experience of Reiki training and attunement was a bit different because it was during COVID quarantine! So it happened over Zoom. Fortunately, energy doesn’t recognise time, space or any of our other human social constructs – so it still worked. And I know that it definitely did work because it’s been confirmed by all of these physical symptoms that I’ve had since…

    That’s why my Reiki Master said that the Level 1 self-healing is so important to go through before becoming a certified Reiki Practitioner at Level 2. Without it, you might not truly understand or believe in the healing potential of using Reiki energy.

    The daily clearings continue to amplify my energy. 40 minutes a day is a big time commitment which frustrates me sometimes, but as she recommended – I do it every morning so that I can fly with the high vibes for the rest of the day! I put my headphones on and listen to a meditation which guides me through a process of clearing each chakra and then filling up the empty spaces with white light.

    I made a shorter cord cutting meditation which you can use to clear your energy faster –


    Even though some people will only get the initial energy download from their Reiki Master, I count all of this as my ongoing Reiki attunement experience. Here are some of the weird and wonderful things that have happened since ✨

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-8Oh my, the headaches!

    When I think about the side effects of Reiki attunement – this has been the biggest one for me by far…

    Weirdly though, when I tried to Google for information about Reiki attunement headaches, I couldn’t find anything online. That’s when I knew I had to write about my experience so that other Reiki headache sufferers would know that they’re not alone!

    After the initial attunement, my Reiki Master asked us what we experienced. I said I had an intense headache at the centre of my forehead; around my third eye. As an amazing clairvoyant herself, she said that it’s due to energy clearing from there which will soon make me more clairvoyant. Yay!

    So, don’t be surprised if you get headaches. I also shared on my Instagram Stories that I had an enormous migraine on day 5 of the self-healing, and they aren’t something that I ever have normally. I knew it was from the Reiki.

    To summarise the headaches, I’d say that while they’re very painful and annoying – it’s also good to know that old trapped energy is working its way out of my third eye and soon I’ll be able to see better. If you’ve experienced headaches after Reiki too, let me know in the comments!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-7My Reiki Master warned us that this would happen, and she was right!

    Small things that I want will now instantly appear, as quickly as the same day. My friend told me that she had a free coaching session, and I thought “that would be nice” and within a few hours I had a random coach offering me a free session in my Instagram Message Requests.

    I settled on the style of artwork that I want for making my own Oracle Card deck, and then a random artist on Instagram who a) doesn’t even follow me, and b) I don’t follow her, tagged me in one of her posts. It was a piece of artwork that she’d painted of the moon, and after scrolling through her page, she was the perfect artist that I’d imagined for my deck.

    This is truly the most magical side effect…

    But it’s made my awareness of the LOA become visceral and absolute. Knowing that any manifestation could be imminent, I have to snatch negative thoughts out of my head so that I don’t create exactly what I’m picturing. When your energy is clear, you’ll remove any barriers which have been stopping you from receiving what you want.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-6This has only happened during the actual clearing sessions, rather than afterwards like the others.

    Cleared energy loves coming out in yawns! They’re not sleepy yawns, though, it’s more like a lion’s breath in yoga. Feeling a compulsion to do this is a weird but real sign that energy is moving out of you.


    Gatekeeper Blog copy-5

    Beliefs and experiences can live forever in your energy field…

    This means that when you’re having an energetic clear out, they can rise to the top of your awareness.

    You might see flashbacks from previous years, or even past lives. Trust that this is happening because the memories are being dislodged, and your energy doesn’t need to hold on to them anymore. Most of the time we don’t even realise that we’re holding on to them!

    Anything which triggers a strong enough emotional response can leave an energetic scar. The Reiki attunement will heal that scar, and then you can choose to fill the spaces with white light instead.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-9

    You can expect to generally feel very drained after your Reiki attunement…

    Clearing out old energy is tiring work, and as I said earlier, this can include sifting through emotionally draining memories. Make sure that you give yourself a few days to restore your energy after this process.

    It’s so normal to feel drained, tired, sleepy and lethargic after your Reiki attunement! Once your energy finishes upgrading, you’ll be a clear conduit, capable of reaching the highest vibration energies.

  • How To Clear Your Solar Plexus Chakra

    I got my Reiki Level 1 qualification on Monday and have been diving into the chakras more than usual this week. My Reiki Master, Jasmine, has assigned me 21-days of 40 minute meditations to clear my own chakras so that I can be a higher vibration conduit for healing Reiki energy.

    As I’m going through these meditations, I’ve been seeing that my own solar plexus is smaller than my other chakras and needs to be balanced. So, I thought it was a good time to do the second part of this Chakra Series and to focus on the solar plexus chakra!

    Firstly, how do you know if you need to clear your solar plexus chakra?

    • You had a strict upbringing where your needs were ignored and you felt powerless
    • You were bullied and it made you lose confidence in yourself
    • You have issues with emotional eating; either over or under eating in response to emotional situations
    • You often feel like you lack power and confidence, ie, you have low self-esteem
    • You’re a frustrated people pleaser
    • You struggle to set boundaries with other people and with yourself, eg, spending, drinking or working too much
    • You have digestive issues such as IBS, food allergies or stomach ulcers
    • You have addictive tendencies because you’re giving too much of your power away to something external
    • Also, having a BIG ego which manifests as being dominant, manipulative and behaving like a bully is also a sign of an out-of-balance solar plexus chakra

    It’s possible to find balance again, and a solar plexus that’s in energetic harmony will allow you to leave self-doubt behind and feel confident in your own abilities.

    It will give you an energy boost, and help you to create success once you feel worthy of it on the inside. Your confidence will then inspire other people to have confidence in you and what you’re offering.

    Most importantly, you’ll know that you get to create your circumstances and choose how you respond…

    Solar Plexus-2

    Never underestimate the power of the people you’re with…

    This is never more true than if you’re an empath or spiritually sensitive person! You’ll naturally soak in everyone else’s energy without even realising.

    Look at the people who are in your life. Do they feel empowered? Do they have good self-esteem? Do they have a balanced solar plexus chakra?

    Often we can mirror the behaviour of people around us and stay small to try and fit in. This is no good for the solar plexus chakra. The first step if you want to enjoy a strong, harmonious and balanced solar plexus chakra is to align yourself with relationships which allow you to express yourself as the greatest version of you. It’s not cool to have low self-esteem, and you don’t need to put yourself down to fit in.

    Find people who raise you up and give you a safe space to shine as the brightest version of you ☀️

    Solar Plexus-3Anger can stick in the solar plexus chakra like a toxic glue.

    People who are quick to anger have an overactive solar plexus, and they’re giving their power away too easily when other people can invoke such a strong emotional response.

    Equally, if you don’t feel safe expressing any anger and you people please just to avoid conflict, then it’s likely that you have an underactive solar plexus.

    Louise Hay famously tells her story of how she had to release old anger from childhood sexual abuse to eliminate cervical cancer, which she saw as a manifestation of this trapped trauma. Research how you can release your own anger – either on your own or with a professional counsellor.

    The anger could be trapped in your solar plexus and causing an imbalance. Setting it free will allow energy to flow through again, bringing it back into balance.

    Solar Plexus-4

    Watching what you eat is extra important if you’re spiritually sensitive!

    Food is just another kind of energy and you’re putting it directly into your body, at the centre of all of your energy fields. Colours are associated with all of the chakras, and the colour yellow is associated with your solar plexus.

    Therefore, it’s said that this chakra appreciates healthy and nutritious yellow foods. Such as: 🍋 Lemons 🍋 Bananas 🍋 Sweetcorn 🍋 Pineapple 🍋 Turmeric 🍋 Lentils

    Eating foods which you can digest more easily (eg, gluten free and without dairy) is an easy way to find relief from any physical symptoms of imbalance in this chakra. Your food gives you energy and you want your food to support all of the power that you have available in this chakra.

    Eat foods which will enable you to flourish by being nourished.

    Solar Plexus-5In a similar way to foods, the solar plexus also appreciates yellow crystals!

    Often, Reiki therapists will place crystals down the chakras of the client that they’re working on. These crystals will match the colour of each chakra.

    You can place yellow crystals on your solar plexus chakra when you’re lying down, meditate, and visualise the yellow energy centre around your stomach swirling freely. Imagine that it’s completely open to energy flowing through it and out of it.

    You can use: 💛 Amber 💛 Citrine 💛 Tigers Eye 💛 Yellow Calcite 💛 Yellow Topaz

    Crystals are great energy amplifiers and they can also soak in any toxic energy from your solar plexus. For this reason, it’s very important that you regularly cleanse your crystals to release any old energy that they’ve soaked in.

    Solar Plexus-6

    You can use affirmations to inspire movement in all of your chakras! For your solar plexus, choose affirmations which remind you of your power to get the energy moving and expanding.

    You can 1) write them down every morning, 2) say them in your mind, or 3) say them out loud to yourself when you’re on your own (such as in the shower or driving). Imagine these high vibration words going into your chakra and feel them to be true from your gut, which is where your solar plexus is!

    This is your centre of personal truth, and what you believe about yourself is held in there…

    Know 100% that these affirmations are true and reflective of you. Affirmations for your solar plexus could include:

    • I am strong and immensely powerful just by being me
    • There is nothing that anyone can ever do to take away my light
    • I create my own life and I can create it however I want

    One of my favourite affirmations which I always use, but feel is extra applicable here is:

    • I get to have fun, be free, and be me; and as a result, I get to live in an endless state of abundance

    Try these or think of some new affirmations which will restore positive self-belief into your energy centre.

    Solar Plexus-7

    When you feel restricted, it manifests as blocked energy in your chakras which then restricts your manifesting.

    Freedom is what your soul wants for you most of all…

    When you don’t allow yourself to be free, you’re encouraging your solar plexus to stay small and you’re hiding from your light.

    Allowing yourself to be free is done in small steps, such as:

    • choosing not to be a victim
    • laughing at yourself when you do things wrong, instead of criticising yourself
    • being spontaneous because you’re not fearfully controlling every outcome

    Prioritising freedom also means being someone who isn’t overly attached. This includes being attached to outcomes, things, ideas, views, and people.

    When you aren’t attached, you’re free to adapt. But when you’re too attached, you get stuck and your energy does too.

    You allow energy to flow properly through this centre again when you’re happy in the moment and you don’t need to be in control.

    Allow yourself to shine, everything will be fine.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Remember that your energy feels best when it’s fluid, light and free to fully express what your soul wants for you.

    Your energy is yours, so don’t give it away to things which zap you of your power and make you feel unable to change. You are able to change, and become better.
