Spiritual Connection

Gain a Closer Spiritual Connection

  • How do I gain a closer spiritual connection?
  • How do I tap into my guides to develop my intuition?
  • How can I use my intuition to read oracle cards and do pendulum dowsing?

These are the biggest questions we ask when we start to become interested in spiritual development.

In fact, I even asked these questions myself when I first started out on my spiritual journey 14 years ago. I wanted to learn it all in 5 mins and master it all really quickly too. I was thirsty for information but overwhelmed with all the information out there. It was mind boggling.


So, What’s the Answer?

  • You need to take it step by step.
  • Make sure that you learn all the fundamental basics such as grounding and protection to protect your energy. Any kind of energy work, including doing readings can drain your energy really quickly and it’s important to learn to do these before you start.
  • Then you can learn lots of spiritual development topics one at a time, in bite size chunks.


Tips to Develop Your Intuition

  • My biggest tip is to utilise the amazing power of Reiki. Reiki taps into the universal life force energy of love and light. It taps into the highest vibration there is so by receiving Reiki you are gaining the closest spiritual connection that you can.


  • Next, I would suggest meditating every single day. It might seem like a bit of a chore and, if you’re anything like me, you’ll say “I can’t meditate as I can’t relax enough”, or “I don’t have the time”. I know because I used to say those things myself for years but meditating 10 minutes a day makes such a difference. You not only gain a closer spiritual connection with meditation, it also massively improves your wellbeing and state of mind. If you would like one of my 10 minute guided meditations, you get one free when you sign up to my newsletter in the box at the bottom.


  • The third tip is to practice, practice, practice. The more you practice, the more readings you do, the more pendulum dowsing you do, the stronger and stronger your connection becomes.

Easy when you know how, ay?

How Do I Balance my Chakras?


What are Chakras?

The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word meaning wheel – they are spinning vortices of energy.

The earliest mention of the term chakra is said to come from the ancient Vedas – 4 holy books of the Hindus, believed to date back before 2,500 BC.

Chakra healing is based on the belief that in order for total well being to take place we must act on the integrated whole.

Chakras operate like interconnected, self-opening valves that channel universal life-force energy into the body. They are self opening valves and they open and close on a daily basis. It is when they are blocked that it affects your well-being and the disfunction of one chakra can affect another.

Where are they on the body?



White – Crown Chakra – Top of the Head

Purple – Third Eye

Blue – Throat Chakra

Green – Heart Chakra

Yellow – Solar Plexus

Orange – Sacral Chakra

Red – Root chakra


What is Chakra Balancing?

Chakra balancing can be done on yourself and other people. It uses a full rainbow layout which consists of 7 stones of a colour which vibrates with each particular chakra.

Malfunctions can occur when the energy flowing through the chakras is either excessive or deficient

By recognising these malfunctions, you can transform all aspects of your life and that of others, for the better.

The chakra system vibrates to the related colours within the aura and can be balanced very easily using crystals of the same colour. It is the colour that is important not the stones.

What Crystals should be used?

Chakra Point


Suggested Crystals



Clear Quartz






Blue Lace Agate



Green Aventurine

Solar Plexus








Red Jasper


Dark Stone

Black Obsidian

These are the crystals I suggest for chakra balancing, although, as stated before, it is the colour of the stone that is important. Therefore, you can use any crystal that matches the colour of the chakra

It is not always necessary to use all 7 stones. If you identify that a particular chakra needs balancing, you can simply place your chosen stone/s on the chakra that needs alignment. However, I always place them all on as it is always nice to give them all a boost.

Top Tip:

You cannot leave the crystals on too long, they will stop working once they are no longer needed.

If you would like to learn more, I have a chakra clearing course available which teaches you all about the chakras in-depth and also how to balance your own and other people’s chakras via distance. You can also gain an accredited certificate in chakra balancing. Check it out on the link below.

cleansing crystals

Cleansing Crystals

Handle with Care

Crystals should always be treated with the utmost care which means you should always think about cleansing crystals. Although they appear to be quite hard and solid, they can be scratched, chipped or even broken.

Crystals Hold Energy

Because crystals can attract and absorb both positive and negative energies, it is vital that you remove any negative energy before use.

There are many methods of cleansing crystals and it is really a matter of personal preference.

  • Natural water
  • Salt Water
  • Sound
  • Amethyst/Quartz Cluster
  • Incense
  • Smudging

There are other methods but these are the easiest to access.

Be Careful With Water

You have to be really careful when cleaning some crystals in water as they are not soluble. Friedrich Mohs devised the Mohs scale as a way of defining the hardness of different crystals and minerals. Selenite is a typical crystal that cannot be cleansed in water.

Easiest Way to Cleanse Crystals of Energy


Using incense and smudging can be an easy way to cleanse your crystals as well as your room. However, personally I prefer using sound as I find this the most quick and effective method. You could put all of your crystals into a large singing bowl but I prefer to use tingshas in the picture above. You just clang the tingshas together and swirl them in a circular motion around the crystals. You can then dowse afterwards to ask if they are cleared sufficiently, although it’s not needed as, even though this a very quick and simple method, it is highly effective.

Crystal Clear

Getting CRYSTAL Clear

Crystal Clear

There are no set rules or regulations about which crystals you should choose for yourself but the best selection process is INTUITION.

There is always a good reason why one crystal stands out from the rest …

when you are selecting them for personal use – your initial reaction to a crystal will usually provide a good clue as to how its energy reacts with the current state of energy and balance within your body at the time.

Also pay particular attention to the stones that you instinctively dislike – this is an indication that the qualities of the energy present in the stone is not suitable for you at this moment in time.

Methods of Selection

  • Sight
  • Scanning
  • Vibration
  • Pendulum

A stone will only stay with you for as long as its energy is needed …

after which time it will remove itself. Many people report how they mysteriously lose a crystal, gemstone or a piece of jewellery when they most wanted to wear or use it, only to find that some days, weeks or months later it reappears – this is because you are now in tune with its energy and are receptive to its healing power.

Sensations from Crystals

  • Energetic charge
  • Breeze or cool sensation across the skin
  • Flow of energy from the crystal
  • Coldness or heat
  • Pulsing/vibration
  • Flush or wave of heat through the body
  • Feelings of being enclosed in an energy field

The easiest and most effective way to choose the crystal that you need at the moment is to use or buy the one that catches your eye. One method is to close your eyes and then go for the one your eyes are led to first of all when you open your eyes. If you choose a crystal using this method and look it up in the Crystal Bible by Judy Hall, you will be surprised that it resonates with what you need at the moment. A good tip when reading up on a particular crystal is to scan the pages and read out the sections that stand out to you as not all the crystal’s properties will resonate with you.

You can also always test which crystal to use using the pendulum method. I have done another article on using a pendulum. Check it out here >>>>Pendulum Dowsing in 3 Easy Steps

By using a pendulum, you can ask if you should wear a certain crystal necklace or crystal bracelet on a particular day.

You cannot overdose on a crystal …

so do not worry about wearing it for too long; your body will absorb exactly what you need at the time. However, you may need to wear the same crystal for a period of time to get the benefit needed. Be sure to clear your crystals regularly to ensure they are clear of anyone else’s energy before you wear them.

What a Difference a Day Makes


As many of you know, I’ve had a very difficult couple of months. My mom was rushed into hospital on her 85th birthday after falling in the bathroom. She was very confused and thought there was a man in the house that was trying to kill her. I went with her in the ambulance and the paramedics were amazing. They said she looked like the Queen and kept calling her “Your majesty”. She was very confused and was eventually admitted into hospital. It was a very harrowing time for us all as the doctors did not know what was wrong with her and actually, to this day we still haven’t had a proper diagnosis.

I gave her Reiki in hospital every day when we went to visit which seemed to calm her a bit but she was still having hallucinations and thinking someone was going to kill her. After a couple of weeks in hospital they decided she would be better off being assessed in her home environment. She carried on having hallucinations and getting scared a lot of the time but we had medication to calm her.

I have been doing a Crystal therapy Diploma course since February and decided to try crystal therapy on her. I knew it would be difficult to give it to her at home so I decided to do distance healing. The next day I was absolutely amazed! Within one day she had gone from thinking someone was going to kill her to thinking the little boy over the road wanted an ice cream!

I have learned that crystal healing is very, very powerful. Don’t get me wrong I love my Reiki and it will always be my passion but adding crystals to my Reiki practice has made such an amazing difference!

I am so grateful I am able to help my mom in this way. I still have a crystal web set up for her which is sending her constant healing and, of course, send Reiki to her every day and every day she is getting better and better. Whatever struggles we go through in life, one day can make all the difference. We should all remember that when we are having a bad day or a bad time of it. It can and will get better, one day at a time.
