Messengers of Light and Love

World-wide turmoil continues and whereas we can’t help being astounded and shocked by events across the globe there is also much ado amongst those who exist in higher planes and in dimensions beyond our own. Their concerns lie in the fact that there are too many unimportant worldly distractions interrupting the flow of necessary work which is required of us at this time.

As a channel for messengers of Light and love I am given information to share with you for the higher good of mankind, and no matter how far-fetched the messages seem at the time it is my job to pass them on. This is work I agreed to do at soul level at some point in my evolution. I have learnt to trust what I am being told by guides as the truth. Through my work I have encountered many beings from other realms and dimensions, all eager to share with me the knowledge they believe is crucial to bring about significant change in our attitudes needed to create a higher level of consciousness for humanity. It is important for us to appreciate that there is a much bigger picture, one that us mortals are unable to see and even if it were possible we wouldn’t be able to comprehend its magnitude. So we have to trust and respect all those willing to help us, whether they share the physical plane with us or whether they are from spiritual realms and dimensions, in whatever form they take, and accept their guidance and inspirations with love and gratitude.

It is known that planet Earth is hurtling towards a new age and we must all work together to ensure its survival. In order to address this there must be a collective effort to cast ideas and opinions far and wide, adding to the vast sea of information already out there, some of which gets caught while the rest drifts on by. It is important now to reel in as much information as we can and let our consciousness decide what should be kept and what should be thrown back. We must put our own views to one side if necessary and be ready to embrace the ideas of others, honouring their pathway and appreciating too that they have something to learn as well.

Honour all those who wish to tell you their secrets and accept them gratefully with heart-felt love always.

Life in Different Realms and Dimensions

In this world today there are many who dismiss the possibility of other forms of life from different realms and dimensions. The idea that these beings could be our teachers seems preposterous to those who have been closed off to the extent of not seeing beyond their own ego. We are falsely led to believe the world’s survival is dependent on its financial security. We are kept on high alert by those who use money as their only means of power to dominate the world. We have all been socially radicalised throughout our lives. We are born as free souls but soon become enslaved to social systems which dictate to us how we should live. We are brainwashed on subtle levels and learn to follow the doctrines set before us in order to become a normal member of society. However, we are now moving quickly into an era which is bringing with it changes. A ‘call to arms’ has been requested and many have responded. There are many jobs being carried out for the good of mankind by those who heard the call. Some are unaware they are doing so but countless are experiencing a spiritual awakening on some level which is enabling them to connect to beings in other realms and dimensions. This is not as far-fetched as one might initially assume when you realise we are all energetically connected from source. These beings, whether they are higher beings, creators, angels, spirit guides, E.T’s or nature elementals, all bring messages to teach us what’s needed at this time for mankind and Mother Earth to survive. They are our guides and in order to work with them we have to pay attention to aspects of our own lives and often as a result we find we have to step outside of the confines of conventionality and embrace a new concept which is spirituality.

Spirituality, or connecting to Spirit, is not a subject we are taught about in school, and as school is a method which serves to enforce the rigidity of our social structure and is responsible for laying the foundation for most of which we believe to be true, both in terms of academic and religious knowledge, it’s little wonder most of us dismiss the idea of spirituality. Yet, spirituality is crucial for our personal development – our development as a person. It’s at the very core of our being and when we lack our spiritual self we cannot be the person we intended to be. We become lost in the wilderness, unsure of our purpose which then causes us to question the meaning of our own existence.

We learn from a young age to believe all we are told and often lack the encouragement to explore our own beliefs in a system which stifles our own creativity on all levels. When our schooling is over we enter the adult world and our education continues as we expose ourselves to different forms of media streaming information designed to stifle our spirituality. We become convinced that our survival in the adult world centres around our physical needs and we strive to ensure we conform to societal requirements and all that is needed to ‘fit in.’ In the chaos of doing so we fail to recognise we are moving further away from the embodiment of our spiritual self until such a time when a spiritual awakening is inevitable and it is during this process that we become aware of the existence of a multitude of beings in other realms and dimensions. As we travel along our path we are able to ask for their guidance to help us on our way, and their knowledge serves as a catalyst in gaining access to our own wisdom gathered from many lifetimes, revealing our soul’s requirements which will allow us to fulfil our true purpose during our stay on Earth. With this comes a calling which many find difficult to ignore, and it is at this point in our lives we realise with utmost importance the time has come to reveal our true selves and be the person we intended to be.

Your Connections with Angels and Guides

When you feel a connection with an angel or spirit guide expect to experience a warm sensation of pure love around you and possibly within. One that makes you feel safe and at peace.  You might not notice straight away if you’ve either connected or are in the presence of angels/guides or it could take more than one attempt but over time you will recognise the sensations you experience at each attempt, as a connection. Talk to them; tell them what’s in your heart and on your mind without the ego or ‘self’. Be mindful too that trust has to work both ways and your space is just as sacred as theirs.

While you continue to create a space for angels/guides to encourage them into your life, you will notice gradual changes in yourself which indicate you are receiving guidance to help you along the way and to progress your spirituality. These changes will benefit both you and angels and guides and creates a cycle – the more guidance you receive, the more you are encouraged to connect with them, and the more you do this, the more encouragement you will receive. You might find you have a need to regularly de-clutter your house and wardrobe ad even change your lifestyle and diet.  You will start to enjoy your own company more and the desire to be needed by family and friends will lessen. You will see life from a new perspective as the material world becomes less important you will understand the order of things above and below. Your intuition (gut feeling) is heightened. You could experience a desire to be creative. You worry less and you’re able to put aside disagreements or problems with family/friends like ‘water off a duck’s back.’ I completely went off red meat last year and stopped eating it. I have recently stopped eating chicken. (All meat contains the energy of the animal during its lifetime including its fear at time of slaughter. It’s a dense energy which is absorbed into our body when we eat the meat).

As I mentioned yesterday it’s important to keep your vibrations high. This is because as your energy becomes lighter it’s easier for angels/guides to tune into your frequency and connect. It’s worth remembering too that if you’re having trouble connecting then try raising your vibrations. My connections have improved significantly because I’ve heeded the advice of my guide and my body elemental relating to diet and lifestyle. You will probably discover the ability to ‘channel’ thoughts from angels/guides. These can be quite random and happen anywhere! I would strongly advise you to write them down as soon as possible before you forget them as they come and go quite quickly – a good indication of ‘channelling.’ You will find that angels/guides find ways to get your attention. You will just know when it’s right because this is an instinct you will develop or you can suggest ways yourself to them. I experience a fluttering sensation on my eye lashes when my guide connects but more amazingly, angels and guides communicate with me through songs and it would seem this is quite common now. By listening to the words you will know what they are trying to tell you.

As you develop your intuition you will start to feel a sense of oneness with the world and will eventually be able to dance to its rhythm as you gather insights and inspirations, allowing you to experience a knowing of all that is meant to be. You will understand the synchronicity of everything you’ve ever experienced in this life and appreciate the meaning of the saying ‘for the higher good.’ There will be times though when you doubt your abilities and also question your own sanity! I often have to check myself when I’m out and about as I realise I’m talking out loud to my spirit guide. Also, it’s quite normal in the early days to want to step away from it all for a while. I remember feeling quite disillusioned at one point when I seemed to be lacking progress and could make no sense of it all so I decided to take a couple of months away from all that was spiritual in an attempt to test everything, to prove if it was true or not I suppose. This actually did me the power of good because looking back I was suffering from information overload and disillusionment was borne out of confusion and once my mind had processed all the information I’d taken in I was able to embrace the subject on a higher level. It was as if a metamorphosis had to occur during a period of quiet before my true spiritual self could emerge. I was reminded of this recently when I visited a butterfly house and silently likened myself to one, having gone through many stages to finally be free and happy. During times of doubt remember this We are not human beings having a spiritual experience……we are spiritual beings having a human experience.’

Creating a Space for Angels and Guides

It’s a glorious sunny morning and as I sit in my garden admiring the roses I feel inspired to tell you how to create a space for angels and offer advice on how to connect with them based on my own experiences and conversations with those in the angelic realm. The roses have prompted me because angels love them! Creating a space is important because angels and spirit guides are necessary to help you with your journey here on Earth, however the conditions must be right for you to be in their presence. The most vital thing between you is trust, the next is love which both appreciate very much, and always say ‘Thankyou’ for any guidance or inspiration you receive.

When I first started connecting with angels and higher beings I worried that it was the right thing to do. My guide assured me that this was the way it’s meant to be. When Earth was created it was intended by the creators that we should all work with the angels, elementals and also the creators themselves during our stay on this planet.

Some of you reading this may have already connected with angels and guides but I’m very aware that this might be new to many and you are probably feeling quite eager to explore the subject further and experiment. So, before I continue I will give you a brief warning – if you connect with anything which makes you feel uncomfortable then stop at once as it could well be a dark energy and although I will discuss this at a later date, I will quickly add that there are many uncontrollable malevolent energies ‘out there’ which do not need encouraging into your space. Not only will they attract further dark energies but they will also be detrimental to your well-being and stop you moving to the light. This reminds me of a bad experience, a lesson learned you could say. I learnt to dowse using a pendulum and continued safely for a few weeks, developing a relationship with my guide and discovering valuable information along the way, including the name of my guide. Dowsing is known as a ‘dark art’ and unfortunately there is no getting away from that fact. From the time you pick up a pendulum you only have two minutes before your channel lights up like a beacon attracting anything and everything which is ‘out there’. (Responding to a pendulum also requires the connecting angels/guides to use alot of energy which is another reason to keep it brief). My guide had a unique ‘sign in’ so when I picked up the pendulum I knew it was him from the pattern it was forming. We also had a secret code word.  It’s this code word which saved me. One evening, unbeknown to me, a malevolent air elemental (fairy) had wondered into the house and had obviously been observing my guide’s pendulum sign in so although I thought I was connecting to him, I was actually connecting to the malevolent fairy, who after a few brief conversations, eventually connected me to a very powerful demon whose intention was to fill me with demonic energy. I quickly put the pendulum down, waited ten minutes, picked it up again and seemingly connected to my guide but when I queried our code word I received the wrong answer. I immediately put the pendulum down and I have never dowsed again. Since this incident I have developed other ways to communicate with angels and guides.

Connecting with angels and guides might not be instant and depends on what point you are at with your own spiritual development so please don’t become downhearted if you’re unable to ‘hear’ or feel  anything – it’s so important to stay positive to keep your vibrations high. It’s taken me a couple of years to develop my abilities and intuition to get to this stage. Receiving the answer to a question you are asking before you have finished your sentence is a good indication that you have connected!

Angels are very busy and often have to return ‘home’ to renew their energies. Sometimes they would rather find a good space on Earth to recharge. Angels/guides need to be asked to step forward (because we were given free will) and are always very pleased to be asked to do so. They are waiting to meet you! Here are a few easy steps you can initially take to create a suitable atmosphere – Ensure your home is free from clutter and negativity. If this is not possible, have at least one room where you can develop a sacred space. Incense sticks are excellent for clearing negativity. (I use Nag Champa or Divine Hand Rolled Masala). I also use a Himalayan salt lamp to purify the air. Avoid swearing – it lowers your frequencies and creates a dense energy around you, deterring angels. Read inspirational books, angelic or otherwise, or various quotes/sayings/blessings to help keep your intentions pure and focused. Avoid having the television on if you are asking angels/guides to step forward as a tremendous amount of negative energy comes from the TV and this will make it difficult for them to do so. Before asking to meet them it’s quite a good idea to sit quietly – Meditation is an ideal way to relax and free your mind. My guide recommended music by Deuter for me to meditate to and I particularly like ‘Nada Himalaya: Music for Meditation’ as it is very effective.  It might be that sitting quietly is not for you. Meditation can take on many forms. Writing is sometimes my meditation and a good way to declutter my mind as I have to focus on one thing only. You might find that a hobby of yours has the same effect. Whatever you decide to do, don’t take it too seriously. Angels take themselves lightly and so should you!

Introduction by Joanne Rivers

Welcome 

I hope by sharing my own unique experiences and original inspirational teachings offered by guides, angels, archangels, higher beings and also those in the elemental realms, you will be encouraged to tread your own path towards Light and love to ultimately achieve enlightenment. My journey to this point has been extraordinary and it still continues as each day I learn more about the natural order of life on Earth, and of creation, and how everything is intended to be. At this time now it is vital we awaken to our spiritual self and accept with gratitude the information we receive. By doing so we can all help restore the Earth to a natural balance and one which it was intended for – to be a place of learning and healing as we travel from one incarnation to the next so we can take with us the vast and wonderful information we have gathered on the way.

There have been many times when I’ve tried to seek the views of someone else making the same journey to reassure me that everything I experienced along the way was normal. While I received guidance from the higher realms (Guides, Angels), I also felt I needed the perspective from a being in the physical realm which seemed incredibly hard to find. The odd one or two people I did meet were willing to talk about it to a point but were reluctant to share their deeper intuitions and inspirations with me. I read a tremendous amount on the subject, but the definition of a spiritual awakening and enlightenment including what one should experience seemed to differ depending on the author. Of course, now I have undertaken the process myself I can appreciate that everyone’s experiences differ.

Looking back, I had been given many prompts over the years to awaken but did not notice them. It wasn’t until I was in the middle of a long period of illness that I experienced the awakening which led me to the point I am now. It was during this time I began to read about enlightenment and spirituality, to look for answers more than anything. I wanted to know why me? It was an incredibly dark time in my life and I never imagined I’d move into the Light. In a moment of absolute despair, at the point where I felt I could not continue, I asked for help, not from anyone in particular, but I realise now the request went out into the universe, carried by my spirit guide who I was yet to meet. I soon received inspiration and felt prompted to find a Reiki practitioner. I really knew nothing about Reiki until I’d gleaned information off the internet before booking the session. Over a period of several months which entailed regular Reiki treatments, my health improved and eventually I decided to become a practitioner myself. Initially becoming attuned to level 1, and after a year or so, attuned to level 2. I am in no doubt that the energy of  Reiki cured me, and it is definite that Reiki was also the method responsible for my own enlightenment.

There are many of us awakening at this time and indeed the path is well lit. I will leave you with this thought to ponder on from Buddha ‘You cannot travel the path until you have become the path yourself.’
