Allowing Our Angels to Help Us

People are asking “Should I change careers? Should I move? Should I leave my relationship, get married, change my name etc etc?” More and more people are questioning themselves as we are all living in a time of great personal and global change.

To help us with our choices we are able to enlist the help of the angels. Our angels want us to know that these changes are inevitable, and the key to enjoying and making the most of these changes is to be flexible.
Change can often seem frightening due to our own uncertainties and fears. With our choices we face uncertain factors such as “will this make me happy, more confident, competent and successful – or will I fail miserably and land in a heap?” or “how will this change affect others? Will they still love me, will they be happy, sad or disappointed in me?” The list of unknown fears and factors goes on ...

Our angels are able to assist us with all of our important and not-so-important choices. From their elevated perspectives, angels are able to know what’s the best for our highest good and to see to see contributing factors. They are able to make the variables known to us to help us make our choices. Our angels CANNOT make our decisions and choices for us, but rather, they will function like trusted advisors for us.

• Create a quiet space for yourself where you are not likely to be disturbed.

• Hold the intention of connection with your guardian angels in order to glean guidance with your decision making. By holding this intention we give our angels permission to intervene and assist.

• Feel free to tell your angels about anything and everything you are feeling or are confused or concerned about. Trust and know that your angels are listening, always. Our angels already know our fears and foibles, our dramas, dilemmas and day to day decisions, and they stand by lovingly guiding us as best they can, all the while respecting our ‘free will’. Asking our angels to intercede in order to aid, guide and assist us is our personal responsibility.

Ask your angels for help, guidance and assistance with any specific life scenario or issue that you are considering making changes to. When you are feeling ready, ask your angels a question such as “what changes should I make which would be most beneficial to my life?” or “which decision suits the situation best?”

• Take notice of the thoughts and feelings that come up in response to your question/s. These feelings and thoughts will give you clear indications as to which direction to take.

• Divine guidance may come in the form of certain ideas, thoughts and/or motivation towards a particular action. These are promptings from your angels and can be seen as answers or signposts.

• Don’t pay too much attention trying to figure out ‘how’ your request will be answered. Just trust that they will in divine right time and order. The Universe has an abundance of miraculous solutions available to us. All we need to do is ‘ask’ and then ‘accept’.

• Another method to use when making choices us to ask your angels to show you the future outcomes of your options. This can be particularly helpful when there are several options to choose from. Again, create a quiet space, then allow yourself to fully imagine that you have chosen the first option. Take the time to really feel and live in that experience. What are you’re emotions telling you? Are you excited, fearful, enthusiastic or horrified? Analyse your thoughts and ‘gut feelings’ thoroughly. Then go on to the second option, then the third, forth and so on, each time fully experiencing your emotions and thoughts. Trust your intuition and your inner knowledge to guide you, as your angels are whispering advice and directions to your constantly.

• If you are still in need of clarity and guidance from your angels, hold the intention to connect with them and your higher self. Ask which way takes you closer to your divine life purpose (if even you are unsure of exactly what that may be ...) Ask which option is for the highest good. Again, listen and take note of any impressions, feelings, thoughts and even direct words. And yet again, trust your intuition.

Tuning-in to and communicating with your guardian angels can be done at anytime and anywhere you wish. The angels wait for us to ask for their help and guidance, and revel in the opportunity to assist us, with unconditional love.

DEJA VU - The Meaning of DE JA VU in our Lives

Deja vu is an experience most of us have from time to time. If we think of deja vu as nothing more than a pleasant momentary diversion, it doesn’t seem all that mysterious or ‘magical’ - but if we recognize it for what it actually is - a glimpse into the ‘Other Side’ - it takes on a whole new significance.

There are two kinds of déjà vu. The first occurs when you visit a certain house, city, road, foreign country or some other specific location you’ve never been before and suddenly realize that it seems very familiar. Sometimes you may find that you even know your way around.

What ALL of us experience when we feel familiarity with an unfamiliar place is our spirit’s memory of a past life. We have been there before; it was just in another body, in another time. The spirit memory is usually buried deeply in the subconscious, so that moments when it emerges into our conscious minds are not just ‘magical’ - they are powerful, miraculous glimpses into the eternity of our souls.

That same kind of déjà vu applies to people as well. We all know people who seem familiar to us the moment we meet them – strangers we feel we have known all our lives.

Don’t assume that a past-life connection with someone should obligate you to a connection this time around. You do not have to act on past-life familiarity – just notice it when it happens and recognize it as another window into your eternity.

The second kind of déjà vu is so common, subtle and seemingly trivial that we rarely give it more than a passing thought. It consists of a moment in which every detail, from what you are doing and whom you are doing it with, to your surroundings, to what you are wearing, feeling and thinking, is so familiar that you are absolutely sure you are reliving an exact duplicate of a moment from your past. It never lasts more than a few seconds and it is never a significant event.

To understand the concept of déjà vu, we need to understand more about blueprints.

Before our spirit enters the womb for another lifetime, we compose a ‘chart’ or ‘blueprint’ for the life we are about the live. The blueprint contains all the elements of this new life – although we can modify our charts throughout our lives. There is plenty of room for lateral movement in our blueprints, so do not picture your charted life as a narrow path with very few choices along the way.

In our blueprints we write into our chart a few signposts to let us know we are on the right track, according to our blueprints. From time to time those little signposts appear to us in the form of déjà vu. Because they hit us with such a sudden flood of total familiarity, we logically assume we must somehow be duplicating a moment we’ve lived before in this life - but we aren’t. What we are experiencing is a tiny signpost from the blueprint we created on the ‘Other Side’ before we were born. In this type of déjà vu, our spirit is resonating so profoundly with the realization, “I remember the chart I wrote!” that it echoes from our subconscious, where the spirit mind exists, to our conscious mind. For that instant both our subconscious and conscious minds are receiving an affirmation that we are in perfect sync with our blueprints. More than that even, we are getting a quick glimpse at the eternity of our lives on the ‘Other Side’, as our spirit remembers, acknowledges and yearns for ‘Home’.

Those same miraculous, blissful and magical glimpses at the signposts in our charts appear in another very common form as well, with the added bonus that we don’t just remember them, we see them coming. Because we don’t understand their significance, we rarely give them any real thought – we consider them to be ‘just a coincidence’. You have the thought, and sooner rather than later, it becomes real before your eyes. To put it accurately, what you are foreseeing is a little signpost in your blueprint shortly before that signpost appears.

A close relative of ‘coincidence’ is synchronicity. Basically, synchronicity is an ‘especially meaningful coincidence’ - it always involves some unmistakable physical sign of some kind – not only to call your attention to the magical harmony of the Universe, but also to give you tangible proof that you are exactly where you charted yourself to be, exactly when, exactly with whom.

DOWSING - What Is It and How Does It Work?

The art of Dowsing is ancient with Hieroglyphics being found in pyramids of figures using dowsing rods. During the Middle Ages in countries such as England, France and Germany, dowsing was a widely used modality. The Bible tells of Moses finding water in the desert using a staff. Wall murals, estimated to be about 8,000 years old, discovered in the Tassili Caves of North Africa depict tribesmen surrounding a man with a forked stick, possibly dowsing for water. Artwork from ancient China and Egypt show people using forked tools in what might have been dowsing activities.

Albert Einstein was convinced of the authenticity of dowsing. He stated, "I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as they do astrology, as a type of ancient superstition. According to my conviction this is, however, unjustified. The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time."

Dowsing is a natural, simple gift from the Universe and can be done using a rod, stick or pendulum in order to glean insight and answers to our deepest questions, to locate underground water, buried metals, send vibrational healing to humans, animals and the Earth itself and to clear negative energy fields and ley lines in our homes and environment.

All things, living and inanimate, possess an energy force. The dowser, By concentrating on the hidden object, the dowser is able to tune in to the energy force or vibration of an object which, in turn, forces the dowsing rod or stick to move. The dowsing tool may act as a kind of amplifier or antenna for tuning into the energy.


Forked stick
The most traditional method uses a small Y-shaped tree branch (most often from a Willow). The dowser holds the branch parallel to the ground by the top of the Y shape, then walks over the area to be probed. When the dowser passes over the sought object, the end of the branch is drawn down, pointing to the spot at which the object can be found.

An alternate method uses two L-shaped metal rods, one held in each hand parallel to the ground and parallel to each other. In this case, when the dowser passes over the sought object, the rods either swing apart or cross each other. You can easily make dowsing rods from wire coat hangers.

Map Dowsing
Some dowsers don't even have to visit the location to be dowsed. For them, a map of the area is sufficient over which they hold pendulum. They know they have located the target area when the pendulum begins to move in a circle or back and forth.

Pendulums work by connecting with electrical impulses created by our subconscious minds. These influences cause the Pendulum to move, and we can then read these movements to gain insight into the deepest parts of ourselves. The pendulum is basically an amplifier and is a tool that helps you to access the collective unconscious and your Higher Self. 

Everyone is capable of working with a pendulum. Learning to work with it is like learning to play an instrument. It requires constant practice and experimentation. Making mistakes is part of the learning process. The results you get will reflect your stage of spiritual/mental development. Swinging the pendulum requires that you be undivided and totally present in the moment.

Just has humans suffer from dis-ease cause by various stresses, so too does our Mother Earth. The Earth has it’s own energy fields and ley lines. Some of these fields and lines are negative. This is called geopathic stress. This is often caused by ley or Earth lines, pressure faults (which emit radiation) and underground streams.

In today’s world we deal with the problems of old as well as new ones such as electromagnetic stress and microwave emissions from mobile phones and other devices such as computers, power points and many other man-made electrical devices, are linked to many illnesses and dis-ease. We are able to surmount these new challenges and bring ourselves into a positive, peaceful, harmonious and ‘light’ state. We are able to do this by using the power of our minds, our determination to overcome any threats to our well-being and our intention to enjoy a happy and healthy existence.

To clear or rid a home of any energetic disturbances, dowsing is a very valuable tool. Dowsing brings harmony to our environment by giving us the ability to discover where the disturbances occur. By Dowsing you are able to clear and refresh your entire home, bringing a lightness to the atmosphere and a feeling of renewal, safety and comfort.

Everything consists of energy. Each and every thought, deed, action and experience we have produces a vibration or energy pattern. Experiences that we have throughout our lives affect us. Dowsing can be utilized to assist us to heal and enhance our health and wellbeing. As humans, we consist of energy and are also surrounded by an energy field called the Aura. Our Aura sometimes has blockages or disturbances caused by many negative influences during our lives and when this happens we are out of balance. This results in feelings of irritability, of melancholy, suffering from insomnia and more. With the use of a pendulum or dowsing rod, blockages can be discovered, removed and cleared in the Aura, restoring balance and equilibrium. Our positive intentions and connection with Source facilitates the healing and once the blockages are cleared our body is able to naturally regenerate and heal itself.

Absent or distant healing energies can be sent to loved ones and friends by way of the pendulum or dowsing rod and our heartfelt well-wishes and prayers. The Universal Energies bring healing to us all.

1. Make or purchase the dowsing tool with which you will be most comfortable.

2. Ask a friend to bury an object (try a metal object or small bottle of water) somewhere in your yard, just a few inches below the surface. Be sure your friend is careful to conceal the burial spot so that it is not at all obvious where they have dug.

3. Before starting, mentally ask your dowsing tool to indicate to you when you are passing over the hidden object. Start walking. You can either take a methodical approach walking in a defined pattern up and down the yard or you can walk randomly, following your instincts.

4. Move slowly. Concentrate on the object and try to remain open and sensitive to the movements of the dowsing tool.

5. When your dowsing tool reacts and indicates a specific spot, stop and see if you have succeeded. If not, try and try again.

If at first you don't succeed try a different pendulum, dowsing tool or try a different kind of target. Try dowsing at different times of the day and in different frames of mind as these may all affect the outcome. Keep a record of your attempts and keep at it. You may find that you have a strong ability for dowsing.

Spirits, Ghosts, Entities and Energies

There are those spirits who are quite comfortable on the Earthplane.  These are known as ‘Earthbound spirits’.  Most often these earthbound spirits don’t wish to go to the afterlife plane.  Their reasons are many and varied as to why they choose to stay close to those living on the Earthplane.

Hauntings are often caused by 'Earthbound Spirits';  entities who have a sense of unfinished business.  They simply do not know that they are dead, and so continue in their familiar rituals.  Some entities are peaceful and happy, whilst with others there is a sense of confusion or frustration.  These entities seek a lost person or object and sometimes they attempt to right a wrong.

There are several reasons why a soul will stay on the Earthplane and haunt the locality of its life or last existence.  Deceased people can choose to stay close to the Earthplane.  Many of them hang around because they are afraid of ‘God’s wrath’ and others stay because they don’t want to leave their loved ones, their home, their belongings and/or their business.  Some deceased people are kept earthbound because their surviving family are extremely grief-stricken, and the deceased person chooses to stay near them.

Sudden Unexpected Death
Sometimes a person may die quite suddenly and the transition from life to death is so unexpected that the soul may not understand or realize that its physical body has actually died.

This sometimes happens to victims of car and plane crashes, or high impact accidents.  These unfortunate souls may then wander around the accident site, confused and disoriented.  Such spirits or ghosts are commonly found at the sides of roads where accidents have taken place.

A Desire to Take Care of Those Left Behind
If a person who dies has a particularly strong attachment to someone living (or sometimes to some thing such as a physical or material item eg. a home), they sometimes stay around with the intention of helping or attempting to assist their bereaved loved one.  If it is a physical item, they may feel the need to protect it.

These souls often stay with the best of intentions and don’t wish to cause any problems.  Their intention is to comfort the grieving.  Some people gain comfort from the presence of the spirit of their passed over loved one, however, some people who are left behind may become ‘spooked’ or afraid.

Some people see all ghosts and spirits as a problem or a menace and treat them accordingly, but ghosts are just souls who have temporarily lost their way.

The soul most often stays around for a short time after death before it moves on to the Other Side.  Many people see or feel the presence of the spirit in the few days directly after their death.  They will usually give you a sign of their presence that is immediately recognizable and associated with them.  Such visits are a way to show you that they exist, that ‘life’ continues and that they are happy and well.

Sadness at Leaving
Some people are very attached to their possessions, such as a house, business and/or personal items and cannot bare the thought of leaving them behind.  This can be a reason for their spirit or ghost to hang about after they’ve died.

Revenge and Anger
Souls or spirits that are angry and bitter are usually in that state due to being hurt in some way.  Sometimes they are the victims of violence and murder, and they hold onto the emotions of fear and anger they were experiencing upon their death.  The negative energy produced by a disturbed spirit or ghost causes the atmosphere to drop dramatically in temperature, and they are also able to make noises, create smells and sometimes move physical items.

Guilt and Fear
A soul may be so afraid of going to ‘Hell’ that it chooses to stay close to the Earthplane rather than take the risk of moving on to the ‘Other Side’.

These Earthbound spirits or ghosts tend to be drawn to places with geographic stress where the atmosphere is rarefied and it is easier for them to exist, as the denser and lower vibrational energies are close to their own.  It would seem that the negative energies created by Earth act as a magnet for any lost or wandering soul.  This is why it is sometimes possible to clear a location of a ghost or spirit, only to find that another has taken its place in quick time.

Some spirits stay Earthbound because of well-intentioned desires to ‘undo’ the harm or pain they may have caused during their lives on the Earthplane.  This is most common amongst child abusers who realize their mistake upon their death, and choose to ‘attach’ their energy to the person whom they abused in the hope of making amends.  Unfortunately, their presence creates disturbances for the living person on many levels.  Their vibration and/or energetic projections can negatively affect the emotions of the living, leading to confusion, depression and negative emotions.

Some spirits who were addicted to drugs and/or alcohol when they died, often choose to stay close to the Earthplane to enable them to experience ‘highs’ from intoxicated living persons. 

Poltergeists  -  Mischievous Spirits
Poltergeists are very disturbed spirits who are able to use energy to move objects and items around a room, home or building, in an effort to attract attention to their plight.

Poltergeists can be quite destructive and there is no doubt about their presence when they are active as items such as furniture can be thrown around and items can be seen moving through the air seemingly of their own volition.

Child Spirits
The spirits or ghosts of children are often mischievous and seem to enjoy playing tricks on the living.  They often move, take or hide things, only to replace them later either in the same place, close by or sometimes even in the most unlikely of places.

Portals and Corridors
An interesting phenomenon is the existence of a portal in your home, building or area.  Portals are spots of rarefied atmosphere, like small sacred sites or spaces.  They are not necessarily negative spots, but are specifically for spirits to move into other realms.  In effect, portals are like spiritual gateways to the astral planes.
An ‘etheric corridor’ is a similar phenomenon.

Living with Spirits and Ghosts
If you believe that you have a ghost or lost soul in your home or workplace, and you’ve tried all means and methods to help the soul move on, your only option may be to learn to live with it.  Most often all you need do is ask the spirit or ghost to leave you alone in return of a promise on your behalf to let it stay.  You may find that you are able to live in total harmony with a spirit as long as you respect it.

This may not always be the case though, so if you are experiencing severe disturbances and are unable to shift the spirit to the light by yourself, seek the help, advice and/or services of a professional or experienced medium.

NUMEROLOGY - What Your House Number Means


To work out your HOUSE NUMBER vibration, add the numbers of your address together, then reduce it to a single digit.  This single digit is your House Number.
For example:  A house or apartment number of 22 would be worked out as 2 + 2 = 4.  

4 is the House Number.

A house or apartment number of 326 would be calculated as:  3 + 2 + 6 = 11.  1 + 1 = 2.  The number 2 is the House Number.

This house inspires drive and independence.  Under no circumstances clutter this house.  Keep furniture to a minimum and decorate in white or strong bright colours.  Keep windows clean and clear.

A number 1 house is likely to be the type of house which catches the attention of others as they pass.  These distinguishing features could be good or bad, both attracting attention.

People living in number 1 houses often use white, gold and orange in and around their homes.  You will often see guilded mirrors and crystal chandeliers, if money allows.

A number 1 house quite often belongs to a person with a high position in work, and to one who has a definite ambition.  It can sometimes be the home of someone notorious or famous.  A person who has not been well for sometime will improve in a number 1 house.

People who are not ‘snobs’ or members of the ‘upper crust’ may be brought in contact with these people.  Number 1 house people themselves can be ‘snobs’.

A number 2 house is sure to be a very homely, comfortable and attractive home, with nice unpretentious people who are willing to share their hospitality with others. 

The number 2 house is often decorated with comfortable, cosy and tasteful furnishings, and has a loving and warm atmosphere. 

The 2 house has simple, nurturing foods in their cupboards, and share this with others freely.  There is seldom any sign of ostentation at a number 2 house.

Sympathetic influence of the 2 gives an affinity and feeling for the mass of average people, and there is often a real sense of community spirit present in this house.

Often children living here may not be your own, but other people’s who are drawn to your place.

A number 2 house is not a fixed, stable influence and there may be many changes and alterations affecting people in this house. 

The number 2 address inspires sensitivity, so compliment its energy with pinks, whites and creams. 

The Number 3 house expresses a desire for expansion and increase for the people who live there, with the result that one feels the need for plenty of room to move.

Number 3 houses give a great need for freedom and unrestricted living.  It is to be recognized that the Number 3 functions in both its positives and negative, so there will be honesty and dishonesty, gain and loss, controlled expansion and reckless gamble.

The 3 address is an interesting residence, as it symbolizes encouragement rather than discouragement.

This fun house inspires creativity and brings lots of visitors. 

Use wicker and cane furniture and keep colours fun with yellow and purple tones.

A number 4 House isn’t everyone’s cup of tea because the influence can be very overpowering.  Because of the diametrically opposing forces inherent in this number, the 4 house is likely to have some odd feature about it which should, but can not, easily be resolved.

There is often an effort made to transform the old-style appearance into a contemporary design, but this can be very difficult to achieve or can cause great disruptions to those living there.

Number 4 often produces a strong sense of frustration because it pulls in two directions.  Only persons with a strong positive character will be able to find the qualities of peace of mind and tranquillity in a number 4 house.

This influence can bring bigger upheavals and more disruptions than any other number, and more often happen through circumstances beyond one’s control. More than one person living in a number 4 house can be found to have completely different points of view and neither will give way to the other.  This can be very noticeable between the very conventional – ‘square’ parent, and a  –  way out ‘mod’ teenager. 

People who live in a number 4 house will have to work very hard,  and a standard conventional line of work is often tossed aside under the influence of the 4.  They then set about carving out some original niche for themselves.

The 4 home can attract financial or relationship problems, so negate that with attractive gardens and a brightly-coloured front door and letterbox.  Decorate with earthly colours such as brown, with touches of green, caramel and white.

A number 5 house is a very busy place, and one can feel a restless air of activity as soon as you walk in the door.  This is a home where people get together and talk about all sorts of things.  There are always people popping in and out, coming and going.   It can be like a miniature railway station. 5 can be an exciting address to live at, especially for singles. 

People who are connected with communication, news, information and transport all seem to be at home in a number 5 house. The telephone is an essential and much needed item in a number 5 house;  and this also applies to the car.  This is due to the restless nature of the number 5 because it likes to be out and about, circulating and making contact with people and places.

Children in a 5 house often have a great interest in bikes or motorbikes.  This number also tends to produce a highly-strung, rather nervous type of disposition and it does seem to be difficult to sit and do nothing in a number 5 house.

There is always something about the 5 house that you do not like.  Combat this by using bright colours on the walls, and camouflaging areas that are not to your taste.

This is certain to be a most attractive and/or artistically decorated house.  It may express, in some way, something of beauty, symmetry and refinement, to do with number 6.  There is usually a predominance of pastel shades in the basic colour scheme, and often a preference for pink or aqua  -  the overall effect being one of harmony and calmness.

In its negative aspect, 6 tends to overdo the decorative effects, often combining too many colours and therefore spoiling the effect.

As 6 is the number of equality and justice, consequently, to live in this house means that you will be repaid for past action.  Don’t forget, however, that the harvest will depend on the type of seeds that have been sown.

With the 6 energy of this house, those living in the home are also balanced under this influence.  Love and hatred, attraction and repulsion, are the positive and negative aspects of the number 6.  It is therefore likely that you will learn the meaning of one or the other, or maybe even both, while living in a number 6 house.

The 6 home is a lovely address for families and for artists and teachers.  Under the happy influence of this number, you will probably make some wonderful friends and have many enjoyable moments because it is the most favourable number for harmonious co-operation.  The closeness of family, pets and loved ones are felt in the 6 home.  Discord cannot survive for long in the kind of atmosphere in this house.

The 7 address inspires spirituality. 

The number 7 address is under very complex and very subtle influences.  The house can appear at first glance to be one thing, when in actual fact, it is the opposite.  There may be a part of the structure that is not instantly visible to the onlooker and in some cases, the structure is defective, though it may not be apparent.

The common problem with a number 7 house is dampness, or trouble with drainage.

Furniture should be minimal and you should decorate with touches of purple, orange and/or yellow.  Try to create a 'quiet room' with a bookcase, or have regular 'no TV' times to benefit the family from the energies of the 7 vibration.

A great address for everyone, particularly the self-employed and self-motivated.  This house will normally skyrocket in value or help those living there to accrue wealth. 

Try not to have anything shabby showing, and keep furniture as modern as you can.

Natural earthy shades with touches of red are ideal.

The 9 house enhances study and all students will do well living here.  The number 9 inspires ‘humanitarianism’ and this house will be open to bringing people in.  For example, if a friend or family member is in need, room will always be made for them in a 9 house.

A 9 house is prone to have electrical problems and burnt toast is a common occurrence.

Decorate in pale, calm colours and keep lots of houseplants.  Display trophies around the room to enhance success, and put out fresh flowers as often as you can.
