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

    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 vibration of the people that 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 which is unusually high or low. Maybe you are 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 are able to transmute the pain of others and illuminate it as the lesson that it really is for the person who is 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 to attract attention and share the message that they came here to share for the benefit of humanity. Through doing this work which feels soul-aligned and easy for them, they will 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 which 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 – which we will discuss more in the next blog!

  • How To Ask The Universe For Something You Want

    You’re lost.

    You need help with something; some direction at least.

    You know that if the Universe would just give you a sign or some small hint that what you want is coming you’d find it so much easier to surrender and relax…

    I’ve been there! And the only way to move out of that place is to get so tight with the Universe that it knows what you’re thinking.

    This is possible when you get really, really good at asking the Universe for what you want.

    Here’s how I do it ↓

    Gatekeeper Blog copy

    Gratitude is a high vibe request for more of the same, and when you want something that you’re enjoying to multiply – make sure you let the Universe know about it!

    That’s why I use the phrase: “Thank you, more please.” 🙏🏿✨

    giphy-4

    I first saw this technique in the Netflix series Styling Hollywood, because it’s exactly what the stars of the show (Jason Bolden and Adair Curtis) do!

    Let the Universe know what you love and what it should send you more of by being grateful and quickly thinking of this phrase. It takes no time to do, and when you’re already experiencing the vibration of the thing in that moment – you’re in the ideal state to receive.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (1)

    Our power to visualise what we want can have a huge impact on our ability to bring it into reality!

    Creating a clear picture is like crafting your request. You can create a clear picture not only in your mind, but in the outside world too.

    Make a vision board, stick a magazine cutting on your fridge, or keep a picture of your next dream holiday destination on your desk. Does it get any easier to know what you want than actually being able to see it with your own eyes?

    Let the Universe know what you want by painting the scene in your mind or on paper.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (2)

    You can ask the Universe for the things you want every morning in your journal or whenever you think of them by simply grabbing a pen and paper.

    It’s as easy as writing, “Please can you help me with…” or “I would love to have…”, and addressing it as a letter to the Universe.

    You never have to show anyone else, and you may rediscover what you’ve written years later only to see that it’s manifested around you! It’s such a special moment when that happens.

    Say what you want with words on paper, and watch them come to life.

    Gatekeeper Blog copy (3)

    This is the level of connection that you want to get to with the Universe: where you have a direct line to deliver your intentions.

    By being completely clear about your desires and not having any cross purposes where what you DO want is energetically clashing with something else that you DON’T want, you can unlock this line. For example, if you wanted to find love but you weren’t willing to give up any of your time or space anywhere else in your life for a relationship, your desire to keep life exactly as it is will counteract your desire for change.

    It’s having unmistakeable clarity and total trust in the Universe to bring you everything you truly want which is your free ticket for a speedy delivery service.

    When you get to a space where you’re vibrating at a high level energetically and clear of cross purposes like self-love issues and limiting beliefs, your intentions can quickly turn to gold.

    ☽ ☆ ☾

    Remember that you were made from the Universe and you are still part of it.

    By tapping back in to your connection, you can have an open energy discussion about what you want to create. You have that right and that ability.

    Your intentions have the potential to create magic in your life, and if you need help more help with this, keep an eye out for my upcoming online courses or ask me about my 1:1 Spiritual Coaching 🚀

  • What Is Your Saturn Return And How Will It Affect You?

    I felt I had to write this today, which is weird because mine happens in Aquarius and doesn’t start until 2022! But for the last week, my intuition has been SCREAMING at me to pick this particular blog out of my drafts.

    Most people have heard of the phrase “Saturn Return” because it’s well-known in pop culture for being a time of big (sometimes unwelcome) transformation. 30 is a point in our timeline that’s laden with expectation, whether it’s to be a millionaire by then; to be married by then; to have a house by then; or to be in your final career by then…

    giphy

    This point on our timeline is widely thought of as pivotal for some reason – and I believe that it’s partly due to the unspoken influence of our Saturn Return happening at the same time.

    If you’ve heard of the phrase and you’re curious to know more about it, this one is for you!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy

    Your Saturn Return is when Saturn goes back to the exact same point in the sky as when you were born. This usually happens between the ages of 28 and 30, but when you can calculate exactly when yours starts and finishes through an online calculator like this one 🪐

    As it takes roughly 29.5 years for Saturn to do a transit around our natal chart, we’ll actually have 2 or 3 Saturn returns over a full lifetime! We’ll experience another one around the age of 57, and then the same again around the age of 86.

    So, why does it have such a fearsome reputation…?

    Saturn is a planet of responsibility and restrictions. It governs our boundaries and fears, and it’s thought to teach us about these parts of ourselves via adversity.

    Meaning that when our Saturn Return takes place, it promises to clear away any illusions that we’ve been living under. Namely, any areas of our life which are out of alignment, but that we’re still comfortably uncomfortable in. I always say that rock bottom is a good place to be, because actually the worst thing we can be is comfortably uncomfortable.

    When something is just “OK” but not great, we could sit with it forever and waste years of our life. It’s better for something to be so uncomfortable that we feel like we need something better, instead of losing a lifetime to missed opportunities.

    That’s why it has a bad reputation: because of its ability to shake-up our life. But, actually (like the rest of the Universe) it’s always working in our favour!

    It puts a question mark over any relationships not working for us. It will bring our career crashing down if it’s something that we’re doing for the wrong reasons. Think of Saturn as “old Father Time. It will ring the bell when time is up on the things which aren’t serving you.

    We should actually all be grateful for our Saturn Return, because once it’s done we’re in a much better position! It reminds me of The Tower Tarot card which delivers the same message; that the structures of our life are going to come crashing down if they were built on a shaky foundation, such as fear and ego.

    That is exactly what our Saturn Return does for us. It wipes away any structures in our life which are there for the wrong reasons, if they’re going to stand in the way of our soul’s progression.

    This awakening primes us for the next 29 years of our life – to make them even more fulfilling, even more prosperous, and even more aligned with who we truly are! Yay!

    Gatekeeper Blog copy-3

    Your Saturn Return will affect you differently depending on what star sign your Saturn is in…

    If your Saturn is in a fixed sign such as Taurus or Scorpio, you may have a more challenging time compared to if it’s in a mutable sign such as Gemini or Pisces, because the mutable signs are said to be more adaptable and open to change. You might also feel the experience of your Saturn Return more intensely if it’s in an Earth sign rather than an Air sign, for the same reasons.

    The star sign that your Saturn is in will define:

    • what approach you have to facing your fears
    • how you’re inclined to set boundaries
    • what limits you might struggle against in your life

    It asks you to think about your approach to discipline – are you for or against it, and why? On whose terms? 🤔

    When you go through your Saturn Return, it will also affect you differently depending on the decisions that you’ve made over the last cycle. If you’re already on the right path, with the right partner, aligned with your life purpose – then it promises to be a fruitful time!

    This is the side of a Saturn Return that no-one talks about.

    It can be a time of confirmation and elevation, where the groundwork that you’ve been busy laying is solidified. If there’s no work for Saturn to do in changing your path, it can affirm your path instead – giving you signs of real growth and potential for the future.

    During a difficult Saturn Return, it may seem like Saturn wants to lead you away from your life – but actually it wants to lead you into it…

    Saturn has been associated with karma, and your Saturn Return can be a time to harvest the rewards of what you’ve done so far.

    You might feel like you’re supposed to be afraid of your Saturn Return, but you don’t have to be! As I said, it’s for your own good. It can just be a beautiful time of confirmation which will propel you further down your current path.

    Or – if you’ve been ignoring your intuition for years – you’ll finally be forced to open your eyes. What changes have you been avoiding making? Your Saturn Return aligns you by giving you the lessons that you need most. Use this time in your life for reflection on what’s worked and what hasn’t, so that you can take them with you and make better decisions in the future.

    Know that, once it’s over, the next 29 years or so of your life will be on an elevated level to your last.

    You’ll be more aligned with your truth, your purpose, and what you’re really here for!

  • 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.
