  • 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!

  • 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! ✨

  • Why Some People Won’t Have A Spiritual Awakening

    Isn’t it annoying when our friends and family won’t awaken with us?

    From conversations with my clients and spiritual friends, this is the worst part about going through an awakening: the loneliness.

    Feeling like you’re weird and strange.

    Not being able to connect with people in your life in the same way that you did before.

    This is only going to make us wish that they could come along for the ride with us, especially as we unwrap our gifts, connect with the Universe, and realise the full power that we have to create our own reality.

    “Why can’t they see this too?”

    Well, maybe they’re not meant to right now…

    We all have different times for our awakening to start unfolding, and they are all as Divine as each other! I believe that there’s reasons why some people won’t spiritually awaken in this lifetime, and I’m going to share these with you.

    Hopefully they’ll help you to see that it’s perfect; it’s Divine; it’s necessary for some people not to awaken. The only thing we can do in this situation is not to control them – but to work on our own acceptance of the new situation we find ourselves in.

    It’s not our job to try and “fix” someone who we hope will awaken. It’s not for us to decide when their time is. They have to find the light when they’re ready to turn it on.

    Here’s why it might not happen in this lifetime 🔮👇🏿


    ⋆☽ They don’t want to… ☾⋆


    A lot of people might have the potential to awaken, but they have so much resistance.

    Often this is an energetic issue where their Crown Chakra is closed, or so blocked by judgements that they lack a tangible connection to the Divine. When they lack that connection, they don’t feel as though they have any physical proof that anything else exists apart from our 1) physical bodies, 2) life and 3) death.

    These people need evidence, and as spiritual people we already get a lot of that through signs, synchronicities, manifestations, card readings, etc…

    But for someone who has never experienced any of that – or has never noticed any of that – it could be very hard to believe that there’s some truth in spirituality.

    They also might not want to because of past life trauma…

    Who else here feels like they were a witch in a past life? 🙋🏼‍♀️

    giphy

    I strongly feel this way, and I actually believe that me, my mother and my sister were all witches together in lifetimes before. With these “witch wounds” comes a huge amount of fear about sharing our psychic gifts and being open about our spirituality.

    We have so much fear of being persecuted because we literally were! And even today, we probably still will be by a lot of people.

    These past life traumas were so intense that they still threaten our sense of security today. For some people, it’ll be so bad that they will not risk awakening in this lifetime.

    It’s a similar story for people who have been brought up in strong religious traditions…

    Or in any kind of belief system which would put them off awakening so badly in this lifetime because those beliefs are entrenched, and are what they have chosen to stick by.

    For the same reason that we won’t change any beliefs, the benefits for these groups of people don’t outweigh the costs of being a spiritual person in today’s society.

    If they don’t feel safe and the fears are too strong, they won’t be in a state of allowing and believing in the magic of the Universe like we understand it.


    ⋆☽ They’re not ready… ☾⋆


    Other people will awaken in this lifetime, but just… not yet.

    It’s for no-one to say when they’ll awaken, as that’s up to their soul and the big-U for when their awakening is due. It’s written into their life plan somewhere, but we just can’t see when it will be.

    Some people awaken from a sudden, tragic life event. Some people awaken through the people they meet and the places they end up. Some people awaken through a magical metaphysical experience.

    You just have to be patient with these people.

    You may not still know them when they awaken, but, if you do, you’ll be the first person they come to for advice, and you can be their support because you know what it’s like to awaken and feel alone.

    Awakenings can’t be forced and it’s not for us to decide when someone else’s is going to happen. We can just be grateful when it finally does!


    ⋆☽ Their path is to help others awaken… ☾⋆


    … without awakening themselves.

    This is the heaviest one, because, as I said before, some people awaken through tragic and sudden life events. For me, I don’t think I’d be in spirituality if I hadn’t moved in with my alcoholic stepfather at age 13. He’s at end-stage alcoholism now, so it’s incredibly unlikely that he will awaken in this lifetime.

    However, if his soul had not made that sacrifice then I probably wouldn’t be here now making it my life’s work to teach about spirituality and help many others through their awakening (and then helping them to set up spiritual businesses which will help many others through their spiritual awakenings!)

    I also think this about psychopathic killers and people who we see as “evil” who have a huge impact on the world. We only see and talk about the negative impact, but the positive impact which comes afterwards isn’t publicised.

    Through every tragic event there are people who find each other, set up new charities and businesses, and make it their life’s mission to stop the same thing happening again. Some souls make sacrifices to help to get others on their right path.

    There is good in every situation and it is these souls who help us to see it through it through the contrast that they provide.

    It’s like a soul sacrifice that they made when they came here to Earth, and even if they don’t awaken – and seem like they’re so far from ever awakening and having empathy – their soul still contributes to the network of awakened souls that is illuminating the whole globe.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Our job isn’t to make unwilling people awaken – it’s to help the ones who are.

    In the spiritual community, we can reach out and help others rise up who are discovering the secrets of the Universe for the first time and feeling isolated by their new gifts and realisations.

    It is not our job to force anyone to do anything that they don’t want to do. That would only push people further away and would be coming from a place of our own scarcity!

    By shining brightly and being our best spiritual selves, we will gradually inspire others to do the same.

    When someone won’t awaken, the best thing we can do is to live our lives as an example.

    Their time will come when they are ready.

  • How We Can All Make The World A Better Place

    Injustice hides behind every corner.

    We give it different names depending on the imbalance it creates – racism, homophobia, transphobia, speciesism – but the premise is always the same.

    A lack of willingness to understand and empathise, thinking that our own feelings of self-importance are always the most urgent to protect, for fear of what our identity and role in the world might dissolve to without them.

    I need to be better at this. We all do.

    The blame game will keep us the same. What need is there to change and face our fears of being vulnerable, when there is someone else to focus on instead? Personally, I think (because I believe in rhymes) that our blame comes from our shame, and that we project to avoid facing all of the things that we’ve done wrong ourselves in the past.

    If we let people in, we ease ourselves out of the comfortable coma that we slept in when our hearts were closed.

    I wish we could undo our conditioning and I wish we could restore the world to an original equilibrium, but we are in the middle now. We’re halfway between a perfect beginning and a perfect ending.

    The only way to go next is forward, and here’s how…


    ⋆☽ Educate and Understand ☾⋆


    To learn is to live; and it’s how we’ll finally understand how to truly love without exception.

    Exposure to learning resources, such as documentaries and books, and new situations is what keeps our outlook open and our minds hungry for something new. When we challenge ourselves to travel, mix with new people, watch confronting videos, learn about topics no-one else around us is interested in – we allow ourselves to expand and start moving in a new direction.

    An ever-growing mind leaves the past behind.

    Action points that we can do:

    • Buy and borrow books on the topics that we haven’t touched on yet, or don’t know much about – but feel like we should
    • Watch hard-hitting documentaries that expose uncomfortable truths, like: Earthlings, 13th, The Central Park Five, and Fahrenheit 11/9

    ⋆☽ Explore New Situations With An Open Mind ☾⋆


    It’s so easy to stay the same when everything around us stays the same.

    Being bold and brave by moving into the unknown and challenging our boundaries is how we can soften the corners of our mind. This is not easy.

    It means going to talk to people at parties that you wouldn’t normally mix with, when you could easily just stay in your own social group – and no-one would judge or call you out on it.

    It means saying YES to new opportunities when it’s easier to say NO, and vice-versa for the old habits and routines which are recycling your time and energy over and over again.

    It means travelling to new countries and continents so that you can immerse yourself in the different cultures and customs, even when it’s cheaper and more convenient to stay within the realms of the resort.

    A willingness to explore is a willingness to know more.

    Action points that we can do:

    • Venture into new groups, social events, organised meet-ups and cultures
    • Challenge ourselves to see things and people from another perspective; especially when it comes to our age-old beliefs and opinions that we feel like we’ve held forever – without knowing why…

    ⋆☽ Heal Yourself, To Inflict Less Damage On Others ☾⋆


    We’ve all heard the old adage “hurt people hurt people” and in a lot of cases it proves to be true. By closing our hearts to hide our own scars, we lose touch with our highest potential for empathy: being prepared to feel the pain and suffering of others too.

    Doing the self-work and focusing on our own healing process is how we can gradually become the best version of ourselves. A reluctance to heal is how people stay the same, and how we’ll always stay in the same cycles and patterns without moving forward.

    When we don’t feel powerful in ourselves, we don’t feel powerful enough to create change.

    By building our belief in ourselves and our own ability, while reconciling our old wounds and disappointments to increase our capacity for love, we can partake in active empathy – feeling the injustice palpably enough to DO something about it.

    Action points that we can do:

    • Invest in the professional help that we need, but perhaps have been avoiding; whether it’s a counsellor, psychotherapist, hypnotherapist or reiki healer!
    • Discovering ourselves and our limits through personal development (ie, meditation, courses, workshops, reading self-help books)

    ⋆☽ Accept Change, Instead Of Resisting It ☾⋆


    When we want things to stay the same, they do.

    If the situation we’re in is beneficial enough, our primitive brain will fight to keep us in it – so that it can rest assured that we’re going to stay safe, fed, and alive and kicking. Our brain has not caught up with us yet, and it’s in no way modern; we’re trying to move forward here – so what can we do?

    We can feel the fear, but embrace change anyway.

    This is a long-term investment and a way of life that we need to get into, rather than a one time event. Getting used to the discomfort of change is like wearing in a new pair of shoes. It gets better over time, provided you think it’s worth it.

    Without change, life is boring – but comfortable. Sacrifice comfort for a future which has the potential to be better than the past.

    Action points that we can do:

    • Have an annual/monthly/weekly/daily review of what is and isn’t working, and what could or should change; different actions will birth different results
    • Look for role models who are challenging the norm and achieving incredible things; having someone to look up to gives us somewhere to aim

    ⋆☽ Forgive Yourself, And Forgive Others ☾⋆


    There are so many low vibration energies and demons which can be exorcised using the elixir of life that is forgiveness!

    Being willing to truly forgive, is being willing to truly move forward.

    I wrote a whole post called 8 Reasons To Forgive The Person Who Hurt You The Most and it’s one of my most read blogs of all time. My biggest takeaway from my Christian upbringing is Jesus’ message of forgiveness, and I try to refer back to it as often as possible.

    Forgiveness is freedom, and like anything else which is worthwhile – it comes with a caveat that it won’t always be easy.

    If we can forgive ourselves, we can move forward. If we can forgive other people, we can move forward. Moving forward is the only way that we won’t stay stuck in the present or the past.

    Action points that we can do:

    • Research the Hawaiian practice of Hoʻoponopono and Jesus’ teachings about forgiveness
    • Be willing to cry, journal, scream, and whatever else it takes to move stagnant emotions so that they can finally be released with forgiveness

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    As a tiny part of a large, collective whole, we all have a contribution to make through the way that we act, think and behave towards ourselves and others.

    By being willing to be better, we can do better – and we can make the world a better place. How can we start today to create a better tomorrow?
