What an amazing night last night! A massive thank you to those who came along to Rachael’s and mine first Spiritual Development evening. I am so pleased with how you all worked and got in to the evening. Thank you so much. I’ll be email things out at the weekend so keep an eye on your in box’s
Our first chit chat of 2019 and our first gathering in our new home at The warren centre. It was brilliant to have some new faces with us this month as well
It was also very nice to welcome Rachael back after maternity leave.
This month we looked at past lives, trying to gain an understanding on how they can effect your currant experience on the earth plane. We also explored the links between reincarnation and your soul progress. How the lessons learned in each live add to the experience and work towards your Souls journey towards enlightenment.
All of us in the group had story’s to tell of past lives that we already know about. My great love of either military or monastic living, with spells of hermit and witch thrown in for good measure.
To close off the evening we had a quick look at soul groups and why you would want to travel around with the same group of souls
A very interesting and lovely evening
Next week is the first of our Spiritual Development evenings. This is an open group and any one of any ability is welcome to come along. £8 for the evening. And don’t forget that all groups are now at The Warren Centre
Love and light
Today I got to do something that I only get to do once a year, and it is one of the few things I really look forward to. I opened this years diary.
365 days of endless possibility’s that can be filled with as much wonder and amazement as you can pack in. You see, it’s your life and you can do just about what ever you want to do with it. A wise man once said to me that you can’t control what life throws at you, but you can chose to control how your react to it. And those have been my watch words ever since. It’s not always easy, but then not a lot in life is these days. But it’s wise words to try and live by.
The joy of new diary may only be apparent to stationary geeks like me but just think about it. If you had 365 days to fill with only the things you want to do with them what would you fill yours with?
I fill mine with Birthdays and Anniversary’s of those who I love so that I can send them good wishes’ and positive energy on there special days.
I note down my daily tarot reading so that I’ve got a record of what guidance I’ve had through for the day
I also add in the full moon dates and the dates of the major feast’s and festivals for the year. Mine are a mix of the Wiccan tradition and Saints of the Christian year that I want to keep.
I add in my daily meditation notes, as well as any thoughts and feelings that I had come in through the day. So that my link with Spirit is recorded, so I can go back and check what I’ve been getting through.
So my diary is filled with Love and link’s with Spirit and I think that sounds like a good way to fill 365 days.
On the last chit chat of this year it was wonderful to sit and share stories of our Christmas traditions. No matter our back grounds or where we are right now in our lives the best Christmas’s we remembered where when the whole extended families used to come together and share that special festive time. In this day when famlies are spread over many miles, even country’s its the magic of the season that can still draw us together.
It’s important to, we discovered to pass on family traditions to our young ones. Do you dec the halls in November, half way through December or on Christmas Eve? Do you trudge off to midnight mass on a cold frosty Christmas Eve night, or is listening to the Nine lessons and carols from kings collage part of your family’s traditions. Does your mum still use the paper star you made in reception class at school, are your great grannys Christmas tree bubbles still given a loving home nestled in the depths of your tree so the dog can’t knock them off with his tail?
Perhaps you observe some of the older pagan traditions, although even the modern Victorian Christmas is still based around most of them if you think about it.
Do you buy in to the whole commercial Christmas and pray the credit card will take the strain?
No matter how you keep your traditions over the festive session we all agreed that it’s family, be that blood relations or the family you have made for yourself that counts most at this time of year. We gave thanks to the community projects that try and bring lonely and single person households together for the day and sent them love and light.
This is the last report from chit chat for this year and from winnall community centre. From January we will be in our new home at the warren centre in micheldever
Love light and Christmas’s blessings to you and your loved ones this festive season
It was so good to have 10 people for this months Chit Chat group, last night in Winnall. This month our main theme was Spirit Guides. What you can expect from them, what they will help you out with. Looking at Guides from the Psychic / Mediumship point of view we found out that your guide is your best friend in Spirit and you can rely on them to point your in the right direction.
The best way to get to know your Guide is by just being in the moment, and asking them to come through to you. Guide energys are bigger and stronger then that of a Spirit person, but not as big as Anglic energys. Once you’ve got used to the energy of your guide you can talk to them and ask them all sort’s of questions. My guide, Sam, loves to talk and will chatter on for hours for I let him.
There are all sort’s of Guides that you can get to know. You may have an animal guide that you can get to know, Dragon Guide and you will have a Gaurdian Angel as well.
Don’t worry if you Guide hasn’t come forwad for you yet. Trust that they are there. You can ask them to give you a sign that they are around. Some of us said that they tickle the end of your nose, or you can feel that they have put there hands on your shoulders. Never worry that they aren’t they and arent working for you.
As always we drifted off on subjects and followed thoughts from the group to explore other area’s of energy work. This is always a good and posative thing because we cover topics that need to be covered for someone in the group that night. We touched on Higher-self work and how to keep yourself grounded.
Next month we will be looking at the traditions of the Yule session. Every body is welcome. It will be the last Chit Chat group at Winnal before we move to our new home at The Warren Centre in Michldever in January.
I love this time of year, the slowing down after, what always seems to me the fast paced summer months. Slowing down and getting ready to snuggle up ring the winter cold.
The leaf’s have started to turn as we get planning for 3 major feats in the coming months. But before we head over to them, I just want to stop for a moment and remember a feast that has already passed us this year. Round about the Harvest Moon (equinox time) farmers and gardeners throughout the land gathered to give thanks for a successful harvest. It’s well known that the UK can not support its self on the food that we grow, we have to import much of our food. A small little fact that was used against us during the War’s. But how many of us these days stop and thank mother earth for providing for us? It’s worth a thought and one that we really ought to encourage in the modern world. Nower days because so many of us no longer work the land, we’ve moved away from this important festival. Once it would have made sense when your life depended on a successful harvest. Now, as long as Sainsburys doesn’t run out of fresh veg and 6 packs of Alcohol, it doesn’t really matter to much. But I would encourage you to stop and have a thought for those that still work the land for us and provide food for our families. And to the Goddess for blessing the crops.
Anyway back to it, I always feel my most powerful during October / November time. As the thinning of the vale between the worlds of Spirit and out own plane starts to take place. If we take a moment out of our day we can start to feel the energys starting to leak through to us. The early morning mist’s that give the world a simmering other worldly feel, a glorious air of mystery and magic, where you can expect to meet all kinds of creatures and things of wonder, if you just open to the magic of the session. The evening sunset’s of wonderful red and orange that hug the evening sky in warm and a magical glow that you’ll find hard to find on the middle of a busy summer.
The harvest is safely gathered in and stored. Bunches of Herbs are drying in the roof timbers of shed’s and out houses up and down the land, an evening fire in the great welcomes everybody home as they come in from work. This is the time of year, of the great English mystic masters working there magic, brining us closer to the world of spirit. Who doesn’t feel the presence of Merlin if you walk around Salisbury plan in the sunset on a October day? You expect to see dragons sleeping on the hill tops and you can hear the great Oaks sigh and relax in the evening warmth before the long winter sleep.
Halloween falls on the 31st of this month. Pagans up and down the land will be celebrating with chalice and wine as they welcome the ancestors in for the feat of Samhain. Inviting them in and taking the place already laid for them at the feast table. Candles guide the Spirit’s home. Small fact – it’s where the Irish tradition of Jack O Lanterns comes from. Although they used Turnips not pumpkins. And it’s to stop the candle being blown out, rather than to ward of the evil spirits. That’s all down to our American friends.
The feast of All saints is on the 1st November. Why am I telling you this? Because it’s all linked. Halloween (the name not the feast) is taken from “All Hallows Eve” the night before All Saints. Traditional Christens will gather to give thanks for the example of the Saints. We should spare them a thought to, after all when the Book of Ascend Master’s was put together a lot of the Saints where included and we can take inspiration from there example. St Francis and his love and care of Animals. Benedict and his devotion to a holy life, Mother Thresa and her work with the poor. The examples are countless and should be taken note off. So on the 1st November we should honour all of the Ascended Masters and learn by there example to be better people of Spirit.
2nd November is the fest of All Soul’s I’m just mentioning this as it’s when the Christens honour those who have gone before. But it was typical of the early church to take a Pagan festival, hold it round about the same time, and rename it for there own purpose. So ok it was an idea nicked from Samhain, but it’s still there. And anyway in the Hedgewitch tradition you get 3 nights for each Festival so we can celebrate all 3!
So enjoy this magical and mysterious time of year. Spend time with family and friends who have already crossed over the great divide and give thanks for there inspiration and the joy they brought in to your life. Acknowledge the Masters and there contribution to your own path. Seek out the natural beauty and peace of this time of year and be still for a moment and let the energies take you to a better state of mind and know peace in your heart.
Reflections on Chit Chat Group
If you’ve never been to our Chit Chat group (1st Monday of the month) I thought I’d give a little reflection on this months gathering
As usual there was a wide range of abilities and people at group this month. From one person just starting out on their Spiritual path, two new Reiki Practitioners and a Psychic-in-development. And me. Most of the evening chatter was centred around healing and how the Reiki 2 atunements can open up your aura so that you can start to build up your Psychic awareness and learn how to develop it.
This was true for me, as it was the Reiki 2 that cracked open my higher chakras and allowed me to start using my Psychic energies to the full. Although I’ve never heard about that happening with other forms of Healing I would like to think that it’s not just the Reiki that does that.
One thing that Id not thought about before (because it didn’t happen to me like this) is how scary it can be hearing the voices of Spirit people/guides/angels can be for the first time. I freely admit that I never had a problem with it. I suppose I just accepted it for what it was. That I was hearing voices didn’t freak me out at all. But I understand that for some people it can be very scary. When we say that we hear voices, very few of us actually do hear “voices” , it’s very rare that a new Psychic will hear the actual voice (style, accent) of the Spirit person. What we hear is usually spoken in the same voice as your own internal monologue. The voice of your mind, if you like. It’s like having a thought, but it’s not your thought. And this is something that needs to be mindful off. In early readings it’s some time difficult to determine what comes from Spirit and what is generated by your own mind. Sometimes, in the middle of a reading the voice will stop and your own mind gives you something to fill in the gab. You do as you’ve been taught and give it out, you get a no from your sitter, which doesn’t help when your in early stages of development. What you need to do is let the energy flow and just ride though the gap. It’ll pick up again, just trust Spirit.
I think that I didn’t have a problem with hearing voices is because of the way that I work. Because I have to be able to “feel” the connection first. If I don’t “feel” it, then what I’m “hearing” can’t be from Spirit. I have to be able to “feel” the connection before I can go ahead with the reading.
One of the other subjects that we looked at was the subject of moving forward in faith. 4 of us in the group have come from formal religious back grounds. 3 Catholic and 1 Church of England. We decided that it was important to acknowledge where you came from. You don’t need to dump the Faith, but you do need to look again at the “religion” of it. Faith, is after all, your personal connection to the Divine and it’s that which you are developing. What your dumping is the teaching that you’ve had. But it’s still important to acknowledge it. It times of spiritual stress it can help. I still say the Office of Compline every now and again. To acknowledge where you came from can help to ground you when you get Spiritual over load. It’s useful to look where you started from and to see how far you have come. So if it feels right, then go to Mass, read your bible and give thanks for the start you had.
We talked about how to channel Reiki energy as well. It came about because an experienced healer will just allow the energy to flow, you can almost do it on Autopilot. This allows us to read the energy of the client, and give a mini reading at the end. This come from experience and practice. If your allowing the healing energy to flow and your intent is correct then it’ll do what it’s needs to do without a lot of input from you.
It was a very enjoyable evening, full of love and being with like minded people talking about connections to Spirit and Energy work. I’d recommend anyone who works with Spirit in anyway to come along some time and enjoy being in the energy. We’re always happy to help you work out any problems you might be having with your work, talk in confidence about any problems you might be having with clients and just sharing that special energy you get by being with people of Spirit.
A very good morning to you all on the last Sunday of September. Yesterday was Michaelmas, the Christian feast of St Michael and All Angles. Over the last couple of years the Angels seem to have fallen out of favour as we chase new connections and new ways of expressing our connections to the Spiritual realms. Dragons are the in thing, and as we all get used to having these fearsome beast’s working with us, I tend to think it’s a shame that sometimes we forget about some of the most powerful connections already open to us. Kyle Gray, bless him, is still banging the drum for the Angels and I still work with them for protection. Michael is my go to guy when ever I am refreshing the protection around my room. And the Parking angels still work for me when ever I remember to ask them to make sure there will be a parking space I can get in to when I reach my destination. Thing is, just like the dragons, the angels have been with us since the start of time so they don’t mind that we are fickle beings and jump from one to the other. In a couple of years times they will come to the for front of our thought’s again, so I guess it doesn’t really matter to them. There are still those of us that remember them and work with them.
I think part of the way I’m feeling about this is because the world changes. And for those of us lucky enough to be born under the Moon and are true to the bone Cancerians, change is always hard to deal with. And it’s not so much the change that makes us feel uneasy. It’s because we’ve only just got our heads around the last new thing and started to feel comfortable with it, then all of a sudden it all changes again and that’s the hard thing. We’re just sure of our footing and what is happening around us and it’s all change. Joys of being born under the Moon.
The only change we like are the ones we start ourselves. Even then it can be hard to deal with. What we thought was a good idea turns out to be a total dump thing to do in the end. I’m vey guilty of that.
But change is good as it gives us a chance to learn, whether it all works out or not. Even the bad things are a chance to learn that we shouldn’t do that again. And if it works then you can feel that warm smug feeling of being right for once.
But anyway, going back to the theme of the day, as our world changes and we move on and learn more things, there are still things that don’t change and are always there when we need them. And the Angelic Host if one of them. Never forget that in your company of Spiritual beings that are with you on your journey though this life time, your Guardian Angel is always with you. Just the same as your Guides, your dragons and your family in Spirit. So spare them a thought every now and again and thank them for the work they are doing with you, even if you don’t always feel them or hear them.
This time between the Equinox and the Winter Solstice is all going to be about planning for me. There are plans in the pipeline that need to be worked on so that they bear fruit in the new year. As a lot of you now Rachal and myself are opening up a open development group. We’ve started to put together a programme of talks and demo’s so that we can help other people learn how to connect in to Spirit and make the most of the Psychic gifts they have. I’m very pleased with the way this is shaping up and I’m really looking forward to offering it out. I know the change of venue may be a problem for some people, but we feel that the Warren Centre offers us a better space and energy to be able to work with people in the early stages of development. And the parking is better.
I also have a couple of personal projects that need a bit of work, one of them is changing the way I blog. Trying to make a better use of the tech at my disposal and trying out new things. More to come on that as I work things out and have a few practice runs but I’m hope that it will help other people as they start on their own Psychic journeys. It should all link in with Development group and the work that we are planning for next year. I know it seems that Development groups seem to be in the “in” thing at the moment with our good friend Magenta Catz also starting up one in Southampton as well. But we are, all of us, working together but independently to give people the best chance to start on their journeys, take the next step if your ready to move forward. So that you can chose who you like to work with and who can help you where you are right now in this moment.
So with the help of the Angels we can all take on the challenge of change and work with an open heart and mind.
Love and light
At chit chat group this month we had a great discussion on moving around different types of religion, or in some case’s like my own, moving around the different traditions in one religion. All we’re really doing is looking for Home, or learning what we can to add to our own experience.
Rabbi Blue (If you don’t know him google him. One of the best spiritual writes I know)
did the same thing for a while as well, until he got back to that section of Judaism that he found home. I think to be honest for some of us its looking for some thing with rules that we can follow. we need the structure. Something to guide us, something to hold on to for support for a while
And I can relate to that. Some times I need to follow the rules for a while, I guess it’s why Ive ended up back in the monastery’s at times. Rules to follow, safety and peace, knowing what I’m doing all the time.
There is nothing wrong in following the rules for a while if it brings you peace of mind and a upliftment in your spiritual life. The problem is when you start to force those rules on other people. Never forget it’s your spiritual journey and it’s personal to you.
Of course the problem with following a personal spiritual journey is there are no rules to follow, other then the ones you put in to place. The Wiccans are encouraged to write there own personal Reed – Wiccan rule – where they write down and follow their own personal code. It can include just about anything from following a vegan life style to supporting local business and not the multi nationals. It’s what ever works for you. Im sure I’ve written this all before somewhere.
I’ve been reminded recently that it’s more important to have a faith, then a set of rules to restrict you. My faith in Spirit, The Goddess and the eternal life of our soul’s hasn’t really changed that much in the last 8 years or so. I’ve always believed in ever lasting life and when the Goddess appeared to me on one of my first proper meditations I’ve done my best to follow where she has pointed. Spirit, the source of my energy and my ability, that understanding just keeps growing.
I think I said in group that the best way to grow is to keep questioning things. Further your understanding. If something if proving hard to understand then you have to take it for a long walk on a deserted beech and keep plugging away at it until you reach an understanding. You’ll either get to know each other really well, understand each other and work it in to your life. Or you’ll decided that it’s not for you and drop it out of your life.
I don’t understand anything past the basic 7 chakra system, I’ve read about the others, know what some are called and can properly point to where they should be, but it just doesn’t work for me. The basin 7 is all I need to understand to be able to to the things that Spirit and the Goddess what me to do at this time. I don’t understand decisions either, it’s making things over complicated for my simple head so I don’t worry about it. I’m still able to do readings, I still meditate when I can, I still get message’s through so it works for me. I don’t think I need to know what comes form the 7th or the 6th. Wonderful for those that do understand, but it’s not for me. Which is totally fine. I know when I’ve got a connection to something not good, a lower energy or something really nasty and I know how to contain it and keep it from doing me harm. That’s all you really need to know.
Finding your spiritual home can find you in a convant, in a SNU Church, in the middle of a wood, sky clad and dancing around a fire. It’s what ever is right for you, when your soul and mind are at peace and you feel that your home.
