Having a Past Life Reading.

Although you can find some information on the Soul Readings page, I thought I would go into a little more detail on how the past-life readings happen, as they differ from Soul Readings, which give you information on what you are doing when not in physical incarnation.

The first thing I do, is ask for your guides and Soul for your history. When I feel the energy coming in, I go to my internal study. From here, I can access all your Soul records.

In my mind, this room looks like an old gentleman’s study. There is a fire blazing in the fireplace, warming the room. On either side of the fireplace are large bookcases, filled with Soul records. In front of a large window, looking out onto a beautiful garden, there is a large desk where I sit and read the book of your Soul History. This ‘study’ is my internal access to what are otherwise known as the Akashic records.

Once I have retrieved your Soul History book, which contains both your past lives, and the lessons learned, I am shown one of your lives that has importance in the one you are currently living. The energy of that life then comes into my consciousness and I feel the story emerging from there. In effect, I become your past-life personality and I write your story as if it was mine; I am experiencing it too.

This is an important aspect of the reading. In living your past-life personality, I am feeling and thinking and seeing everything from your Soul perspective. That also means, that as you read the written up report, you are directly experiencing everything too. It is after all, your past-life experience. As you read the report, the energy is transferred, via the writing, directly to you. Often your guides will also give me information on why you have chosen this lifetime’s challenges and will give you direct information in the form of a channelled communication.

We come into each life with a plan of learning, a desire to experience, and to grow. There are people we have agreed to connect with, to learn from and sometimes to leave. Some of our lives are easier than others but all will challenge us, in some way. The events in our past-lives sometimes leave emotions and beliefs that affect us in this one. We can feel as though we are going round in circles, trying to gain an understanding of why we continue to do things, even when we feel we have been healing that issue for years. Sometimes, no matter what we do, we cannot get to the bottom of it.

This is when a past-life reading is useful. We are not simply dealing with current life issues, but also working through older lifetimes. A persistent problem might have its roots in a prior existence, and in this case, a reading helps to uncover it. Once we have connected to the root of the problem, we then have the knowledge we need to heal the issue we are dealing with and can use the healing skills we have learned to resolve it.

When we are planning our next lifetime, we choose which issues to work through. We could be working through multiple lives simultaneously; lives which have a common energy or which are pertinent to what we want to learn in this one. People we connect with in this lifetime, even people we have challenges with, are often people we have known in those lifetimes. Like characters in a movie, we know the roles we are playing with them. We wrote the script together. The challenge is often to overcome past issues with them and when we have achieved this we move on. This can be a very difficult concept to accept, especially if we have been in abusive or damaging relationships. But no relationship is a mistake. A past life reading can help us see the bigger picture, allowing us to let go, and grow.

Having a reading can be a profoundly moving experience and can take time to integrate. There are many lessons to be learned in each life we have lived, so seeing the roots of a problem can be the first step in overcoming something that has been an issue for a long time. Once we know it, we cannot unknow it and we will receive little prompts from our Soul-consciousness reminding us of where we are concerning the challenge we are working on.

I have found, through my own past-life work, that often I am given a past-life memory, or information about the details of the life in question, because it is important for me to know what I am working on. I might have been working through that past-life issue for decades! This information usually comes when I am close to completing that particular challenge and therefore the information is helping me to consciously work on resolving it. It can still take years, but it can then be whittled down, step by step. Past-life readings are given because you have reached a place where you need to understand something. Having the past-life information assists you in understanding the root of your current circumstances so you can change your situation for the better.

That information does not remove the challenging circumstances, however. We are here to learn after all, but it helps us to know what we are dealing with so we can work to overcome it.

When I do a reading, I am doing it from the perspective of the Soul, so it is important to remember that. Our Souls see our physical lives in much more expansive ways than we do. There is less judgment, and more need to learn as much as possible. Even a so-called ‘negative’ life can be an important vehicle for learning. So keep that in mind.

Once you have received your reading, and you still have questions, or you feel you need to talk about what has come up, you can contact me on my facebook page. I am more than happy to be a sounding board or to help you understand something you find difficult.

If you would like to further explore the Soul concept of past lives, read Dr. Michael Newton’s books: Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls. These describe why, and how, we choose our lives and who we choose to live them with. If you want to expand your current learning, and understand the deeper reasons for your life, read those books. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They will help to you to understand your own past-life reading from your Soul’s perspective.

Unexpected Dragon Clearing.

cornwall056I have been busy lately, having undergone some shifts relating to letting go of allowing myself to be controlled, or manipulated into doing what others want me to do.
As healers, we are particularly susceptible to this, but once we recognise how someone else’s needs may be holding us back, it is then up to us to allow it or to move on to more empowered living.
It can be painful and disorienting but ultimately freeing.
Controlling or manipulative behaviour stems from fear, and is not done on purpose. Recognising that helps us to stay out of a victim-place, knowing that, once we understand what we are experiencing we can then make choices about what course of action needs to be taken.
For me, it is about pulling back, finding my own centre again. Sometimes it feels like starting over, and that’s OK too. I immerse myself in creativity and find my new direction, which appears eventually.
I had an experience with dragon energy three weeks ago which I now understand was the start of this letting go. I was preparing to go to Carisbrooke Castle, on the Isle of Wight, to do energy work when I closed my eyes and saw a rainbow dragon swirling up around my legs. As it moved further up around my body it became a black dragon, and then further up still a white dragon. As it spiralled around me it was collecting energy the same colour as itself, so the black dragon was collecting black energy streams, and the rainbow dragon, different colours energy streams. When it reached above my head it spun itself, as if on a spindle and spiralled back to where the energies had originated. what-are-dragons1
I saw that they were other people’s energy: desires, Will, needs. I didn’t know what they were exactly, but I knew they were sent out from other people and were affecting me somehow. Later, I realised that it was through using an essence, one I made at St. Nectan’s Waterfall but never actually used, that this was happening in the first place. I never knew what this essence was for but through this experience I discovered that it clears other people’s energy commitments from your ‘field’, freeing you to follow your own path!
I am still going through this process, as it takes time and much clearing of emotion to continue a path you didn’t know you weren’t on anymore! But I am slowly feeling more centred again and more in control of my own destiny!
So, once again, I have learned a new way that dragon-energy works in our field. The fact that the dragons shifted colour as they moved up through my energy-field tells me about the energies I had inadvertently accepted; the thoughts or desires that I thought were mine but which were proving to be a blockage to my own path.
This must happen all the time, to everyone. We all affect each other, one way or the other, but sometimes it gets in the way and needs to be cleared. The people from whom we have accepted these energy streams become very obvious as we begin the process of clearing. It is in our everyday interactions with people that tell us what behaviours and feelings are connected to them. Once we have that information, then we can choose what we do with them. I usually withdraw gracefully and continue on my own path. Other people can fulfil their needs, it doesn’t have to be me.
So now I am back on track…or at least getting there and getting ready to continue the journey. I have only a vague idea of where this is leading me but it will be of my Soul’s choosing, not anyone else’s.

White Dragons.

I have been working with White Dragons for quite some time now and really only now understanding what they represent.

When they first appeared, looking like the Luck Dragon from The Never-Ending Story, it coincided with the first fiction-book channelling I began to receive, which is about dragons!

I knew that they were an upper-dimensional inspiration but not that they were directly related to our bringing that inspiration into our third-dimensional world through art and writing.

It wasn’t until I lived in Sahl Hasheesh, on the Red Sea, that I ‘got it’, for they began to appear, out of the sea, giving me gifts. Since I have been beside the Red Sea, for a few months of the year, I have connected with a book editor, a piano teacher and an art teacher! All the things I have wanted to develop for a long time. But everything creative has manifested here. Here I can access that Sea Dragon White Energy, connected to the Womb of Creation, the Red Sea.

Since being here, I feel an opening to more writing, more art and more music. We have an art group, three days a week, I write every day, books which have been given to me, little by little, by my Soul and Guides, and now am beginning to learn how to play the piano, a dream I have had for a long time.

My art is getting better, and now I receive art inspiration from my guides also. That is wonderful! Being able to create healing images for people and for places. I had received images for years but didn’t have the skills to paint them. Now I am learning how to put them on paper. Perhaps in time, I will create music too, once I have learned how to play! Music has always been my connection and ‘opener’ to energy. When I do attunements or art, it is music which gets me to the right level. It opens my Soul to Universal energy and allows me to contact the energies I need.

The White Dragon, when it appears to you, is your Spiritual/Soul artistic guide, there to teach you about how to create Divinely inspired works that help others.

All the dragon energies are connected to the Energy of the Earth consciousness; they are a way to bring into physical form, the energies which will trigger and teach others on the earth plane. Especially when that teaching is related to healing within the realms of Earth. Bringing their Dragon awareness to the minds of Humanity is their task.

Healing art, healing words, healing music, all are the domain of the White Dragon.

So, if you find yourself anchoring, or having spiritual journeys with the White Dragons, you will know why. They ask you to hone your skills and make yourself the best you can be with your art, so that others can benefit from your Divine Dragon Inspiration. Bring their world into our world so that we learn to be co-creators, a dragon-human partnership.

These energies are very real, and tangible if you are sensitive to energy. They are not empty symbols, but powerful, creative, elemental energies.

Let them guide you into realms of pure creation.

The Effects of Healing. Part One.

One of the most important things I have learned with healing is to be patient and to trust that the energies I have received or given, will take time to unfold. Today, we expect instant results, an instant pain-free life, and instant change, but that is not how healing works. Your inner-self has its own awareness and knows how to use the energy you have received to benefit you in the best way.

I began to learn this lesson quite early on in my Reiki life. I needed some practice of hands-on healing and an elderly neighbour had bad arthritis and was in a lot of pain. She asked me if I could give her some healing so I agreed. I didn’t charge for it as she was giving me practice time. I thought I was there to help with her physical issues, but as it turned out her soul had other ideas.

I worked with her once a week for nearly a year, and during that time, as we built trust and as it usually happens with Reiki, she shared her history. Since she was a child she had experienced sexual and emotional abuse and eventually married a man who had also abused her and her children. She was a very tiny, thin woman who couldn’t say Boo to a goose and she had felt completely powerless in her marriage, unable to deal with her husband and his behaviour.

After a year, I could no longer work with her due to external changes in my life and she went to a local healer for a few weeks. Her arthritis seemed to be no better but other changes were happening internally.

I met her again a year later and she told me what had been going on in her life. I had heard that she had had issues with her husband and their grandchild. She had discovered that he had started to abuse her only grandchild and she could not stand back and watch him destroy another generation of children. So she reported him to the police and then was a witness against him in court. She kicked him out of the family home and he spent two years in prison.

I was amazed. This tiny, bird-like woman had enough power to stand up to a man who had abused her for years and had made her life, and the life of her children, an absolute misery.

I met her again a couple of years later, and she told me how she was getting on. Her husband had completed his sentence, but she had never abandoned him. Throughout his ordeal, she had continued to support him, but in a strong, healthy way. She was able to be firm and clear but never lost her compassion for him, seeing him as another wounded soul. 

I have no idea what happened with her arthritis but her life was healthier and happier because she had changed internally, letting go of the belief that it was her fault that she had been sexually abused as a child. Because she had let go of that belief she did not have to sit back and watch her children being abused and she didn’t have to put up with being abused herself. That combination of energy, talking and emotional release helped her to heal.

The healing didn’t turn out as we consciously expected it to though, and it certainly didn’t happen over-night. It took a few years for the process to clear the abuse energy from her system, so that she could see the truth and have the strength to make different choices.

For me, the arthritis was a symptom of the emotions and damage she had been carrying since childhood, and although in the beginning, when I didn’t quite understand how healing worked, I thought I was a failure for not ‘curing’ her. It was only when everything had changed for her that I began to understand the nature of healing. Thankfully, when I was working with her, I was also training as a psychodynamic counsellor, specialising in Sexual abuse and Domestic violence. So I was able to ‘hear’ her story in the first place.

This experience taught me a number of lessons.

  1. I have no control over what another person truly needs when it comes to healing.
  2. It takes time! Nothing is achieved overnight. There are layers of emotions, and these are linked to beliefs we formed as a result of our experiences and these all take time to shift and heal. So even though the person receiving the healing might also be expecting instant change, it doesn’t work that way. Everything takes time.
  3. Healing is often not what we expect. We might ‘think’ that we are healing something specific, but the Soul of the person receiving healing knows exactly what needs to change and that might be the complete opposite of what you thought needed healing. Trust is most important here.
  4. What seems like ‘failure’ to you, might be exactly what your client needs. This takes us to a whole other level of healing. While I was training as a counsellor, one of the things we were taught was that often it is our failure as therapists that helps the client the most. Why? Because it exposes feelings related to past disappointments, feelings that can be faced and released. If we are always the person the client needs us to be, consciously, then how can they know their deepest feelings? For healers, this is difficult to accept. We become healers to heal because we care. Our last desire is to let someone down. But often we do, and that’s OK, when we do it with awareness. There is often a higher purpose for that. (I’ll write more about failure and disappointment in another post.)
  5.  We are not responsible for another person’s choices nor are we in control of their path. How their Soul uses the energy we channel to them is entirely up to them. They will use it, or not, in whatever way is appropriate for them.
  6. Boundaries are extremely important. This has been a difficult lesson for me, as I experienced much sexual abuse in my youth. Boundaries in a therapeutic space are what keep you safe. If you have an arrangement, stick to it, unless something major happens. If you charge for your work, make it clear and don’t be afraid to ask for payment. Your time and experience are important. But that doesn’t mean you should charge out of people’s reach!
  7. Know your own limitations. You are human and will learn a lot through working with other people. You too are healing, and your client’s issues often match your own! Work on what comes up for you. “Your client can go only as far as you have gone”. If you haven’t healed aspects of your own life then your client can’t go beyond that either. However, the joy of being a healer, is that you too receive the energy as it passes through you, so you can move forward too. But you need your own healing in order to shift.
  8. Let go, and trust in the over-arching awareness of the Source and your own Soul and guides. Have faith especially that your client’s soul knows exactly what she needs and just be the channel and listener. Letting go is possibly the hardest one to learn, but it is an absolute requirement. Not everyone will accept your healing, not everyone will understand it and often, when they haven’t had an overnight shift, after all, they came to you to be healed, then they will leave you to find another miracle -worker. Let it go. You did your best.

Hopefully, by now you understand a little more about the nature of healing. I will post a few more of my experiences, especially when I began to receive the Gaia Method, so that you can know that whatever you are doing is perfectly OK. So long as your intention is to do your best and with the Soul’s awareness of what is necessary, then all will be well…even though it is not what you thought, and sometimes hoped, it would be.

I will take these points and expand on them in following posts. I hope they are of some help to you in your own journey.

 

 

 

 

The Lemurians…Clarified.

2 October 2016.

 

0b29b2efc76c1a8219b48cb0caf8c0cc“Earlier, you guessed at our identities, and it served you at the time, and it served us too, but now you seek the truth of who we are, and rightly so.

We are not so old as to be forgotten, but not so young as you might imagine. Although ‘Lemuria’, as your present time defines it, did not exist in ‘reality’, our civilisation did exist within the time frame of that believed to be Lemurian.  We are an ancient race, older than the hills, literally, as your mountain ranges were beneath our seas and were our seabed.

We made up many races and many lifeforms, just as you do today, and some of us were wise and others not so wise, just as you also are today. But the wisdom we garnered, over many years of development, is what we share with you now.

There was not one name that applied to our races, for we were many, just as there is not one name for your human civilisation. Perhaps you will enter the collective psychic atmosphere and be known as “The Humans” to future races on earth, but that is not your ‘name’. You see how difficult it is?

We were a race of cultures, trying to develop qualities, in much the same way as your human race is doing. We were successful enough. The Abramic culture was a bleed-through from unresolved issues that we left behind us, and this is why we take this opportunity to help you with these challenges. We take a measure of responsibility for these beliefs and so we choose to resolve this issue by helping those souls to overcome the negative beliefs that we ourselves planted, albeit unwittingly!

Time will tell whether we can do this satisfactorily, for mankind has taken a different route to the one we took, and it is more difficult to break-through when such energy is being forced outwards. Your race is yet young and you have come so far but now it is time for change. It is time for mankind to change direction and so we help you to steer in that new direction.

You can continue to call us Lemurian, as that name helps you to identify our energy. But you know the truth, and we are glad that you asked for it. It is always better to face the truth, than to live a lie and so we say to you, never settle for something unless you feel it in your bones. Untruths can be scattered to the four winds, but the truth will always endure because it is the truth.

Symbol to hold in your mind if you wish to connect to ‘Lemurian’ consciousness.

We are ‘rooted’ like a great tree, and although it may lose its leaves, and it may wither and die, the memory of it remains. And so it is with us. We remain in the Aethers, and you can tap into our memories at certain places where those energies remain. If you would like a symbol to connect to us then use this: a simple white feather in a sea of green and gold, will suffice. That is our energy signature and if you wish to connect with us, use this energy and we will enable communications.

Thank you and we wish you well in your endeavours.”

This information came about because of my own unease with the name lemurians, even though I had received both teachings and information from this ancient civilisation. But I have a need for the ‘real’ in my work, even though to others everything I do might not seem ‘real’.

When I first began to channel, or ‘listen’ I told the energies communicating with me not to give me any airy-fairy flowery language. I wanted the info to be clear and un-New Agey! I wanted it to be practical and usable, not wonderful sounding fantasies that got people no-where except more stuck in their heads!

I hadn’t really given the Lemurians much thought for many years, but as I was going through old, received information I posted some of it here. However, I still felt uneasy about the name, so I looked up where the name came from. It was a biologist named Philip Sclater who first began to use the name. So I asked the Elders who the Lemurians really were! And this was their answer.

great_tree_by_hazzard65-d5968avHaving studied Archaeology I knew that our ‘present’ spiritual belief about lost continents was not true. Studying archaeology really helped me to separate fact from fiction in my energy work. And receiving the info I needed from the horse’s mouth helps me to understand the truth of these ancient civilisations, even though archaeology does not hold with theories of previous civilisations on earth. But the earth does not lie and geology is geology, so I can accept the fact of the Lemurians knowing that they existed, just not necessarily in the way we think.

So I am grateful to them for clarifying this for me.

REIKI Attunements.

I offer Reiki attunements to Master level, but the attunements may also include Gaia Method symbols/keys if that is magical-lotuswhat your soul needs. As I have learned many other Reiki modalities in my journey to the Gaia Method, you might also receive any of these. As usual, it is very much your soul’s needs which dictate what symbols you receive. You don’t need to be a Gaia Method Healer to receive any of the Gaia Method symbols either. If I am passing an attunement and your soul shows me you need to receive any of the Gaia Method symbols/energies, or any other energies, then I give them.

If, however, you would prefer to keep the Reiki attunements pure, I am more than happy to keep within that system’s boundaries.

Whether you receive a distant attunement or an in-person attunement, you will receive a written copy of the attunement, a certificate of completion and a writeup of the energies you received.

For distant attunements:

Reiki levels 1 and 2:  £50.

If you want to receive regular, or booster, Reiki attunements, to increase your ability to channel, or to move through a particularly tricky issue: £10 per attunement.

If you want me to send you a Reiki attunement along with your Gaia Method Attunement, just add £30 extra to the cost of the Gaia Method attunement.

All payments can be made through this page. 

Communicating with Trees.

treemanCommunicating with Trees is very simple. You just sit, or stand, with your back against the tree trunk and you intend that your energy-field blends with the energy-field of the tree. You imagine that both your ‘fields’ are One. Then you wait! If you are with a Dryad, and this will be pretty clear already because you will feel something different about the tree, then you just keep your inner senses open and watch to see what happens. The tree might need your help, to clear it or to change its field, or something entirely unexpected. Or it might share with you, its energy. It might send impressions into your mind telling you what it needs. You just have to be open to whatever  you receive.

It does take some trust, and sensitivity to energy communication, but once you have done it you will always recognise the energy. Sometimes, even just passing a Dryad, it will make it’s presence felt. As you walk through its huge energy-field you may ‘imagine’ that the tree is an old man, or an old woman. Don’t dismiss this feeling as you are picking up the age of the Dryad. You will ‘know’ which of the trees is the Dryad.

Dryads are easy to recognise as they seem to ‘pull’ your awareness of their energy to them, through love and appreciation. You might be out walking and suddenly feel how beautiful a tree is. Your heart feelings are triggered. No matter how old, or young a Dryad is, you will feel a heart connection. DSCN0315

Trees which are close to human habitation are often ‘memory-holders, especially ones near churches or old human settlements! So they might choose to share with you the history of where they grow. That can be fascinating. Some of these trees, especially yew trees, grow to a very old age, so they can hold vast amounts of memory-energy.

Trees that are about to be felled, for one reason or another, might need other assistance, such as requesting that you hold the energy until either a new tree is planted, or another tree can be found to hold the energy elsewhere.

Some trees will communicate with you that they need to be cleared of negative energy, or healed, on some level. Just follow your impulses and do what the tree requests, just as you would a person. Sometimes trees are so filled with negative energy, such as toxic fumes from human existence, that there is nothing you can do for them. In those instances you just have to honour the experience of the tree, recognising their sacrifice to the environment. You could send those trees your appreciation of its work.

The more time you spend around Dryad’s, and within their energy-field, the more you will pick up the energy that they are picking up from the Earth’s consciousness. They know more about the world, and it’s future, than we do!

B0004259Sometimes when a tree wishes to communicate with you you will feel a ‘pulling’ sensation in your belly. It is literally ‘pulling’ your awareness to itself so that you stop and ‘talk’. Once you have stopped, with the intention of listening, you will know what to do, or the tree will show you what it is doing.

Trees always remind me of elephants! I think it must be because they are so huge and the fact that they hold memory. They also know what is coming for the world. After my last experience with the young beech tree in Farley Mount Woods I received this channelling. That made me realise that the tree’s connection to the earth means a lot more than I originally understood. They not only connect us to the past they also give us information about the future!

So when you blend your energy with a tree, be aware that anything could happen. Thankfully trees are way smarter than us and only give us what we are energetically able to manage. Another lesson we can learn from them.

I lately received a book I had been wanting for a long time, by Dorothy Maclean, one of the founders of Findhorn. Call of the Trees. Well worth buying if you want to work with tree consciousness. One of the most important messages which trees impart is the need for old, large trees. In cutting down our ancient trees we are cutting ourselves off from their important work. Not only do they do what we already know but they also transmit forces of energy into their surroundings, as I’ve already experienced. As the tree devas say:

We would emphasise the absolute necessity to have large trees for the well-being of the land. The control of such things as rainfall is often in our hands, but as well we draw forth inner radiances, which are as necessary to the land as rain.”

They say that mature trees are the skin of this world; take them away and the whole creature can no longer function, but dries up and dies. We need to be working with trees.B0003840

In the words of the Deva (overall consciousness) of the trees:

“Just tune into nature until you feel the love flow. That is your arrow into the Deva world. It does not matter if there is a message or not, it is the state which counts. Always it is your state which nature responds to, not what you say, not what you do, but who you are.”

From the Beech tree:

“When you are receptive to us, it is as if you are part of our forces; you blend in and you like it, and we like it. When you are not so tuned in, you are cut off and there is no contact between us. We send a blessing in this rare contact. We bless all who come within our influence, but generally it falls on barren ground. Still, we pour our blessing down in everlasting benediction, unmoved, as you come and go your various ways. Your reception repays us a hundred-fold and we give thanks to our creator.”

Prehistory. Channelling 2008

15 million years ago the world was a very different place. Continents existed which no longer exist in your world. These places now are beneath your feet, in the deepest oceans and flattened beneath tons of ice. But in the deepest places of the earth, canyons, the sea bed and pits in the earth these regions are accessible. Beneath the earth’s core lies another world, the place of divine creation. This world is constantly in process, creating the magnetic fields which power your earth and keep you alive. This place, or world, is not physical but magnetic and it supplies the power to your world on the earth’s surface. Without this world your world would not exist. That is why the interaction between the elemental worlds of earth, air, fire and water are crucial to your understanding of the magnetic fields of the earth. Without these elements the magnetic field would have nothing to ‘work upon’ or to ‘act upon’. Its job of creation is to regulate the force fields of each element and this is why you find many healers working with the different elements. All are needed if the world is to remain in balance.
Our work, in your prehistoric past, was also to regulate our world. We did this in much the same way in which we are teaching you today. In times past we too understood the volcanic nature of creation and strove to work in harmony with it choosing our times carefully and with foresight. We knew that the result of our actions would effect the entire planet’s energy field and so we worked diligently to repair it and maintain its efficiency.
The magnetic core at the centre of the earth is regulated by other, more cosmic energies, held in place like a ball on a number of strings, taut like a cable. When this forcefield changed so also did our work requirements. We strove always to work in harmony with the earth’s forcefield so that all life would succeed.
There are layers of patterns working in harmony with each other and all layers require different expertise. But all need to work in harmony. This is why it is so important that those who work on their particular layer are trained to trust their intuition and vision so that the patterns can be re-instated or changed as necessary. Each elemental world requires its own patterning. The sea world requires the use of magnetic flows which are capable of ‘swimming’ the currents, like giant sea serpents, meandering along specific ‘highways’. Earth currents do likewise but require a different attention than those of the sea. The waterways which flow through the landscape require yet another form of energy regulation if they are to flow in harmony with the other forms of life and so on. Working in harmony with each element is vital to the success of the planet.
There are other networks of energy which flow through the deeper layers of the earth, layers which cannot be accessed by humanity for they lie too deep beneath the earth’s crust. These energy flows are regulated by outside forces, forces which you have not yet come into contact with for that is not in your realm of experience. Suffice it so say that all is taken care of, either by humanity’s healers, the earth’s healers or the cosmic balancers.
If you would allow us we will now teach you how to maintain the earth’s energy flows which run throughout the earth’s crust on even deeper layers. These are layers which our civilisation would have been familiar with but which your archaeologists have never discovered. These layers lie within a circle of fire which you can access by going within. All parts of the world contain these rings of fire but only some are visible. Allow us to share our world with you.

Trees and Dryads. Introduction.

DSCN0043

Trees play a very important role in the maintenance of balance on the earth, not only physically, but also energetically.  Some of them also have a consciousness, which we call Dryads. It was no accident that the first Gaia Method symbols were given to me by a Dryad, as they hold the elemental wisdom of the trees.  But not all trees have a Dryad energy. Dryads are tree spirits and they connect to all other trees within a given area. The Dryad is not a woodland sprite, who runs around the branches and skips amongst the leaves; it is the living spirit within a tree, a spirit which you can communicate with, if you choose to. Communicating with Dryads is simply a matter of trust and recognition.

There are thousands of Dryads in the world. Most of the Dryads I have worked with were in woods, or forests, or on Earth energy-lines. They can be of any age and you can usually ‘feel’ their age, but usually the older the tree, the older the Dryad.  They can also inhabit any species of tree. I have worked with Ash, Olive, Fig, Ficus Benjamina, Beech, Larch, Pine, Hawthorn, and Oak, amongst others. The ones that feel to me to have the most ‘human-like’ personality are the Beech trees. You can have whole conversations with the Beech Dryads! They seem to be very easy to access and are very ‘giving’ with their energy. Other species are doing definite ‘job’s, which you can help with, but they do not communicate in quite the same way as Beech trees.

Dryads also hold the energetic space around themselves. They can have huge energy-fields that ‘cover’ a large area. They are not limited by their physicality, just as we are not, we just think we are; the trees know they are not! When working with a Dryad, we are within its energy-field, even though we ‘need’ to be in physical contact with the tree’s physical self. We are all in a physical body but we all have an energy-field. Often, when in the presence of a Dryad energy it feels like wind in the branches, which suddenly whips up and fills the air.  Sometimes it feels like the entire area is filled with this ‘wind’, and there is a definite sensing of energy in it that communicates with you. It is a whole body, mind and emotion experience, so there is no mistaking it when you feel it.

The roots of trees, can anchor the energy-lines, which run throughout the earth, transmitting the energy from those lines into the atmosphere, keeping it clear. However, these trees can also become very clogged, energetically, by human negativity and destruction. These trees then transmit all of that energy into their surroundings, because they will transmit whatever runs through the lines. They don’t have any judgement about whether it is good or bad, they just channel it from the earth and into the air, effecting the energy  around it. If the energy flow is denser, or filled with negative human energy then, over time, it effects the tree,  leading ultimately to its death.    I have used the roots of trees to anchor the red lines, the ones which come from deep beneath the earth. When they need to be brought closer to the surface, or even created, then a tree is usually what holds it in place.  Once it does this, then the tree is effected by it and holds the energy for its surroundings. The energy from the line energising the tree.

Dryads often have  a definite feeling of gender. They can be perceived as male or female, young or old. Some of them are so old it is as if they are just ‘present’ within the tree and their wisdom is all around them, but they do not communicate, so much as radiate; just ‘being’.  But you know they are there, because they ‘feel’ different.

When I first started working with Dryads, I thought that all trees held this type of consciousness. But then I tried to communicate with some trees and discovered that they felt like Trees, but had no Dryad energy. When I tried to blend my energy with a non-conscious tree, the feelings were incredibly subtle and initially I thought I was feeling nothing. But then I began to experience the tree’s experience of Time, and how the seasons changed around it. There was this constant awareness of movement within the seasons and cycles of change, which went on forever. At first I couldn’t understand why this was all I was picking up, but then realised that not all trees had a Dryad energy within them.

A friend tuning into Beech Dryad at Coldridge Woods Banjo settlement.

My very first Tree contact was with an ancient Yew tree, close to  Lainston House Hotel, near Winchester, in the 90’s. I had gone rambling through the woods, as I love exploring new paths, and I had found myself beside a huge old Yew tree, which I felt an impulse to stand against. As soon as I leaned my back against the tree, I became aware of it being connected to all the trees around it, through the earth. It was as though it was communicating with the other trees and somehow ‘broadcasting’ to them and into the environment. It felt amazing.  In many ways it acted like a satellite dish, but there was something in the communication which was about keeping the balance within the area. The Yew tree felt like the Elder and the rest of the trees in the woods felt like its children!

That experience awakened something in me, which, at the time, I didn’t fully understand until many years later. But ever since that experience, I was able to sense the energy in and around the Dryads.

Many trees live on the cross-over points of energy-lines, and they hold the energy which runs through the lines. They act as both anchors and transmitters. I remember one Ancient Ash tree, which lived on a boundary ditch that had once been part of a village deserted during the plague years. It had grown in the garden of one of the cottages, and even though the village was no longer there, the tree remained. When I was around this tree it always felt like I was in a cathedral, the energies were so light and spiritual. I was new to working with energy-lines and nature energies back then, but this tree’s energy was palpable. It felt like a Grail site, but of course I had  no idea what that meant. I loved this tree, and its wonderful energy, and took a lot of friends to visit it over the years.

You often find Dryads living on, or near sacred sites, even if that site is no longer there.  The energy, however, is, and the memories live on. Trees living around the energy of old churches, which were often built on pre-existing sacred sites, act like elephants and have a very long memory. You can tap into this energy by tuning into the tree. It is a little like psychometry!

One of the most important things I learned with trees is that they do not judge what we humans do, they just continue with their ‘function’ without becoming ‘upset’ about it. Many people working with trees tend to ‘project’ their own emotions and beliefs about the tree, onto the tree itself. The tree can have a very different idea of what it finds ‘acceptable’. To give you an example: Once I went to Swallowhead Spring, at West Kennet Long Barrow. There, people had left lots of ribbons and crystals and ‘stuff’, which to my  human mind seemed more like littering. But as I was thinking this and feeling quite pee’d off about the lack of respect people seemed to have for the site, the tree that grew beside the spring put ‘her’ feeling of gratitude into my consciousness. I was quite surprised. ‘She’ said that she was really happy that the site was being honoured by humans again, as it had once been and she didn’t mind their offerings. It brought love to a neglected place which once honoured the Mother, once more. I had to completely shift my perspective about what was acceptable and what was not after that. My human mind had simply projected my personal beliefs onto the site, and the Tree; I have never done it since! Although I do think that the stuff needs cleaning up now and again, so that it does not end up clogging up the area!

If you want to know what a tree really feels, then ask it. If you feel a negative emotional response, such as anger, sadness etc. then those are probably your feelings getting in the way! Trees don’t feel like we do, they are far more accepting of our failings than we are! I have never met an angry, or sad tree. They are far closer to the Source, or God, or whatever you want to call it, than we are. When you are in communication with trees, you are in communication with the Divine. Experientially it feels exactly the same. It feels joyful, accepting, loving and giving. Even when they are holding human negative energy, they still do not judge it. It just IS! To me, they feel far closer to our Soul’s experience, than to our human one… and our human perspective can be very limited!

I will post some of my experiences with trees, so that you can get an idea of just how to work with them and how they operate; then, if you have similar experiences you will know what they might mean. I would also love to hear some of your stories and communications, no matter how crazy your experiences might seem to be.in the Gaia Method

There are Tree energies available as an attunement within the Gaia Method System: symbols which gives you the ability to access the Dryad energy. There is also a ‘Tree infusion’ which I share with you, just as the Tree shared it with me. You can find out more under the tree attunements page.

The Chalice/Grail.

HolygrailAs with the Sword again we are dealing with Arthurian myth, and also ancient symbols. As is usual with these energies they have many functions but the prime energetic function of the chalice is as a vessel! It is not an attunement energy but something that you ‘become’ as you continue to clear out your own personal issues and devote yourself to service of the Planet and its healing. You literally become the vessel of Divine energies. This means that you are an open channel and have agreed with your guides and Elders to be the receptacle of energies which then can be placed or used in the environment in order to bring balance and healing.

Sometimes, when I am passing an attunement I am holding a chalice and giving a communion wafer to someone. This is usually because I am going to be giving a specific energy to someone. The communion wafer is the energy of the Mother. It is her ‘bread’, the bread of life which sustains us and is given as a gift from her chalice, her vessel. The ‘communion bread’ is her substance but it has also been charged with the Divine Masculine Solar energies and so it brings more abundance with it.

Yesterday, while I was writing and listening to music I felt the need to raise my arms up. This is usually when I am about to receive energies from ‘upstairs’. One of the energies I brought down was a large communion wafer, like the one the Catholic priest eats in a mass. This means that I am about to pass on a larger amount of energy than usual  and as my friend Chris (without whom the Gaia Method would probably never have happened) is coming to Luxor for a month, and will go through  his sixth gateway initiation, I imagine it will be for him! So. again, the energies which you will need will often be given in advance. All you have to do is be open to receive!

When you are about to do some energywork your guides place the necessary energies into your centre. You literally feel like you are an open cup which is being filled and this feeling can be very physical. It can feel like you have something heavy in your belly. These energies are very real and, like the water energies of the ‘umbilical’, you will carry them until you have placed them where they need to be.  winchfishchalice2

Once you have become the energies of the Grail you are also then able to anchor that energy in the earth. While I was working in Winchester with Chris and Eartha we had to join energy lines together, over a period of time; having received our ‘instructions and downloads’ at the Chalice Well in Glastonbury. Together these lines joined into an archetypal energyfield of fish, Chalice and crib, joined together to create the energies of male and female fertility. In the image the chalice is the two yellow lines which cross. Each point, and end of a line, joins to a sacred site. The fish encompasses the whole image; it represents the fertility of water.i.e. the river Itchen. (I will deal with the fish energy in another post). We didn’t know that that was going to be the outcome, we just followed our directions, anchoring and walking a line until it became apparent that what we were doing was creating an archetypal energyfield in the landscape.

The entire energy is the Fish in the Chalice which leads to a divine Birthing (Crib) of energies in Winchester. I am aware that much of this work appears in Christian symbols but these symbols are ageless and were incorporated into Christian religion because they are potent symbols of power and contain universal meaning. But these energies are connected to nature. The fertility of the water, the masculine principle joining with the feminine energies in the landscape combine to create the birth of new thinking, new ways of living which are more in tune with the land, and new life, a wondrous creation.

I remember the first time I became aware of how my guides fill my ‘chalice’ with energies in preparation for a working. Chris and I were due to go to Farley Mount the following day. It was January 2009. We were sitting in the caravan when  one of my Elder guides came in:

Sangreal“Yesterday I had one of the Elders, Antaris, come in and he planted a white flame with blue, pink and yellow flames as though it were one four-fold flame, in my centre. It felt like it was for the work at Beacon Hill. Then four lines went out from the flame and created an X at the tip of each was a white lotus with the three colours on the petals. They felt like four places where the flowers would be ‘set’.”

I could feel the energy moving in through the top of my head and through my body until it ‘sat’ behind my navel. It was a very strange experience as though I was an open pot. At that point I was not aware of how the energies worked or of what was the significance of the Chalice. But, the following day I planted the energies and then I understood, so that when it happened the next time I was more prepared.

Now it seems to be a common occurrence that before I am due to do any work, whether it be to pass an attunement or to work ‘in the field’, the energies are placed in my chalice. If I am given energies to hold and I am not passing an attunement then I know that within a short time I will have to do some work somewhere.

The more you progress the larger your energy-field becomes and so the more energies you can ‘contain’. Doing any other form of healing or energyfield training helps to expand the amount of energy you can hold and channel. Two of the most useful trainings I have done in this regard were Flower of Life and Merkaba training, plus Magnified Healing. The more healing modalities you can add to your ‘toolbox’, the better you become at channelling what is required, and the more able you become at ‘holding energies in your ‘Chalice’.

Some Elements of Earth Energy-Work. The ‘Umbilical’ Cord.

7e3e824639cab11e3cb8d219c9533608-d4wy9nnThere are some elements of this work that can feel very strange, such as energy-tubes emerging form our ‘centre’ and moving into vortices or rivers. To my ‘mind’s eye the tube looks like a fireman’s hose and its purpose is to either ‘fill up’ your centre with energy or to deposit that energy someplace else. Often it has happened around rivers or other sources of water. I get a strange pulling sensation in my belly and I ‘see’ and feel the hose emerge and move into the water. It then starts to ‘suck’ water up, like an elephant’s trunk, until my centre is ‘full’. I then have to carry this energy until it is ready to be deposited someplace else. This is also happened while driving, although I am usually the passenger! As we pass the body of water my fire-hose emerges and moves quickly into the water we are passing. More often than not we are usually in a traffic jam, which I imagine is for that very purpose! I never know where the water is for however, I just have to trust it. Sometimes, along with the water, come small diamond energies which also stay in my centre until they are required elsewhere.

Once when this happened I had to deposit the water energy of the River Itchen in Hampshire into Luxor. My friend and fellow Gaia Method healer Chris, were staying for three weeks in a flat we had bought a 20yr lease on (whole other horrible story) and the swimming pool had not yet been built. Our flat was on the third floor looking out onto what would soon be the pool area. This is the journal entry for that time:

“I was sitting on the balcony having our usual million cups of tea when I stood up and looked over the balcony. I felt the familiar pulling sensation of my stomach wanting to connect with the ground. This had happened the first day we arrived here. The swimming pool has still not been built and Jamal is growing vegetables in the space. I felt the pulling sensation in my navel and my umbilical unwound like a hose and moved down to connect with the ground. Then all the water I had accumulated from the rivers and wells in Ireland and England flowed through it and filled the space with a pool of water. Then it wound itself back up into my navel. Process complete. I wondered what was going to happen with all that water I had absorbed!”

As it turned out that was the exact spot where they eventually built the pool! But I still don’t know what its purpose is. snake-kundalini

On another occasion I was with my friend Eartha, another Gaia method healer who I have done a lot of work with. She spends a lot of time living around Corfe in Dorset, one of my most favourite places in England. We were spending the weekend in her teepee and she took me to a place which she ‘works’ regularly, a beautiful ancient trackway beneath Nine Barrows Down. This is journal entry for that occasion:

“…we wandered back but we continued down Eartha’s priestess path until we came to a sand pit. I was explaining to Eartha how we can access ancient energy here because it is exposed, and we went to stand by the bank. While I was talking I suddenly felt the odd sensation of my umbilical cord moving out like a hose and moving deep into the earth to some ancient water source. My ‘hose’ is now about 6inches in diameter and is golden. It pulled up lots of liquid from deep in the earth and I had to stand there until it was complete. This entire area is ‘priestessy’ for Eartha and it feels very ancient, more Atlantean really! She was having to pull energy into her field which looked like green and then gold like wings. When we were finished the gold hose came up and at the opening of it there was now a facetted ruby egg. When my umbilical coiled itself back the ruby stayed at the end and inserted itself into my centre. It feels like it needs to go somewhere else, to be planted like I planted the water in the Flat! “

(When I speak of Atlantis I am speaking of the time when the continents were joined in one landmass, Pangaea, millions of years ago. I am not speaking of the mythical Atlantis of Plato.)

This ‘umbilical cord’ also connects to other people when they need healing or replenishment and seems to activate from that other part of us who knows what it is doing. Often I feel like a ‘witness’ to what happens when I do energywork but it is the accumulation of all of my soul training which is being used and me, as Ann, doesn’t often understand what the energy part of me is doing until much later; I just have to trust it. Other energy-work healers say the same thing!

On a visit to Cornwall with Chris in 2006 we found that many ancient settlement sites were also set up to fulfil the same function:

Our next visit was Carn Euny Iron Age settlement site. It was a terrific place and the fougou was amazing. My first impression, before entering, was a layer of fear which had been added later. It could have been to keep people out, a little like a powerful magus using it for his own purpose rather than as its original intention.

As I walked into the fougou itself I instantly saw a group of council elders/druids and it felt like a kiva. A place of power originally intended as a place of law and ritual, the hub or centre of the community.

2014webOriginally there was nothing ‘precious’ about the fougou it was just seen for what is was, the navel of the community, and given its due respect. But it was an accepted part of the community. People lived around it, got on with their lives around it. It was part of their everyday lives. The fougou entrance symbolised the umbilical cord, the source of nourishment for the community. They were well-fed and taken care of and had a good community spirit, like the Hopi Indians. From this place you can see the sea and it feels like a beautiful place, a perfect place to live.

I sat on stone slab and closed my eyes. An Arabic woman dressed in black appeared and in her arms she held a naked boy-child, sickly and thin. She placed the boy on the ground in front of me and stood back, silently asking me to heal her sick child. Initially I wasn’t sure what to do and then I saw my umbilical cord move down into the earth beneath me, feeding the settlement with the energy I’ve been carrying from Men an Tol since yesterday! I didn’t even know I’d been carrying it but they had said something about a download but I didn’t realise what they meant, until now! No wonder I felt so bloated.

Anyway, when this process of ‘feeding’ had finished my cord was retracted and I saw a tribal runner sending communication to other settlements, letting them know that the Mother’s energy has returned at last, the lines are flowing once again. There was great excitement and it felt really good.”

Working with the ‘umbilical’ cord seems to be a natural part of Planetary Healing. Once, while at a workshop in Wales with Jhadten Jewell I was speaking to another healer and I was trying to explain to her what happens with the umbilical energies. She said that that was part of Vortex Healing. I  have never had, or learned Vortex healing, but it would be interesting to see if it is the same thing.
