Manifest Goals 2023

Goals with Soul

Do you feel the pressure of the new year to create goals and achieve lots? Are you already being a bit hard on yourself? I share how to make goals with soul, that you can embody and manifest in a more real way. The goal/manifesting can be in relation to your work, finances, well-being, future partner, hobbies, time management, or whatever is right for you.

A new year or new intention is a chance for us to almost begin again and to be given another opportunity to upgrade, perhaps from things that didn’t go so well in the past. Some people fail to achieve goals, which in itself, is also fine, as it is often the path of learning the goal that something occurs, for example perhaps it isn’t what you actually want, or you see a different path. It may also be that the goal is not actually aligned with what you truly want. When I mean align, I’m talking in alignment with the next-level version of you and stepping into your power of taking responsibility for making something happen.

1. Write down 3 columns Predictable, Possible and Potential 

Give yourself some space to feel relaxed, have a hot bath, a walk, listen to some relaxing music and when the time feels right begin to write down some things you would like to achieve. If it helps you can break these down into 3 columns, predictable, possible and potential.

Predictable is what it says on the tin, the things you know will happen. Possible is what we get excited about, or what we want to create, but we haven’t achieved it yet, but we desire it as it feels good to us. This could be in the next days, or up to 12 months. Potential is the bigger pull, the 1 day, bigger dream, that still feels a long way away, perhaps in the next 3+ years.

2. Visualise achieving the goals

Manifest goals by imagining them as done

Once you have become clear in what goals you really want to bring about and feel good right now for you, imagine yourself having achieved it. Visualise it as best you can in your mind’s eye and bring that vision into your heart, how does it feel? What is different between the new you and how you are, or who you are today?

3. Alignment check-in

Are there any reasons why you wouldn’t want to achieve this goal? Are there any hidden doubts that could stop you from achieving this, are there any worries linked to achieving this goal? Allow yourself space to explore before investing in bringing about a goal.

4. What tools or support do I need to help bring this about?

Allow yourself permission to take all the practical and personal support that you need. This can look like learning, practical tools, emotional support, and time re arranging.

5. Map out the timings and stepping stones of the journey

Break down goals into steps

Start with where you are now, the mini figure above and in the opposite side of the page the future goal achieved, break down all the stepping stones along the way that you see you might need to put in place to achieve the goal. Do not worry if it isn’t clear right away, start with what you see the first step might be. The goal is there to inspire you, the steps are there to be practical and to make it happen.

Extra support – saying out loud, or writing down what you as an individual can do to take responsibility for achieving your goal and what the universe can do to support you. I give an example below of how this can be read. For more information on this table, check out Mike Dooley.

What I can do to take responsibility for   /  What the universe can do to support me.

I wish you all the best in playing with the possibilities and finding enjoyment in the exploration of this, allow yourself to dream as big or as little as feels right for you.

For more information and support, I am excited to be offering life coaching on a 1-2-1 basis where we explore these very things. I also can support you in shifting through any blocks that are holding you back. Blocks can be physical, mental/emotional and spiritual or energetic.

Living with fear

Living with fear

What fear actually is, how it affects our little bodies and hearts and all my tips to support you little treasures in living with fear.

We’re swimming in it at the moment, it’s coming out of the news like hot cakes, on the headlines, in the paper, in the guidelines. Of course I understand some of the guidelines are to support us, but the media really have an lot to answer for, this ability to whip us up into a frenzy can be so harmful.

We also have every right to read up and listen to as much of the ever changing news as we like, so how do we live with all this fear around us?

Solutions have to come from within, finding your own way to process the triggers felt, mixed messaging and pressure coming from a place of fear. 

Fear, otherwise known as False, Evidence, Appearing Real, this is a good analogy if you are like me and scared of the dark, as soon as the lights go off, I can imagine a monster is going to come and gruesomely devour me! I also can’t watch those sorts of movies, you know the ones that leave you terrified before going to bed, they hang around and haunt me for ages. This fear analogy could also be used for some of the hype and media BS that we are being fed, false evidence appearing real?! Ooooo Emily, put your claws away!

Another saying I hear, is feel the fear and do it anyway, well in the current situation, I feel its more, feel the fear and simply batten down the hatches. However there is some truth in this saying, there are ways to push through fear if there is something you really want to do, you can tap into that courage and hunger, I share more about solutions for this below in the therapy section.

If your like me and agitated and triggered easily by the next scary monster around the corner, you might find my tips below useful on dealing with hype and fear that we are currently facing. 

Fear tips below

Focusing on my loves/passions/what I like to do

I always harp on about this but if you are sat there re-watching or obsessing over the news, you will be fed with more worry. I am not staying don’t keep yourself up to date, but focusing your time being poured into your loves, perhaps its creative writing, longboarding, dancing, gardening, baking, reading, whatever tickles your heart, go do it! It’s an act of kindness and nourishing self care. 

Exercise, that you enjoy

I love weight training and I am lucky to have an awesome PT, who really makes me giggle, so I get a double hit giggles, endorphins released and yeah my biceps are getting  bigger 😉 nothing wrong with small biceps either 🙂 

Fresh air

Walking, getting in that fresh air, Vitamin D from the sun and connecting with your buddies and nature in the physical is so important. It provides that time out, to gain a fresher perspective, literally, you are breathing in a different environment and gives an opportunity to gain the bigger perspective on things. Whenever I see the sea, not only does it calm me, but it makes me realise my problems/fears seems a bit small when facing a vast energy that’s always changing, the sea! 

Having a morning routine that isn’t harmful

being a human is full on enough, mornings can be full on enough for us non morning people, so starting with your stretches, cup of tea, music, just be super gentle on yourself, you don’t need to launch straight into the drama, but then again perhaps you need that to get you going?! Not my cup of tea, though, literally.

Knowing where my support is

Following, staying close to speakers, social media accounts, that I feel resonate, comfort and support me. It might be someone, something that makes you laugh, or speaks up when you feel you can’t, or simply makes you feel relaxed. I am lucky enough to have the presence of a guru in my life, which isn’t for everyone, for some its their football community or going to church, or listening to a podcast, whatever it is, make sure it supports you.

Preparing before I read the news

Reading the news to keep up to date, but preparing before I look, it’s 99% going to be something in the headlines, that I don’t agree with or will push my irritation buttons, so I ask myself, is now the best time to read this, do I want to do this to myself? If you feel strong and ready, then go right ahead. But its a good one to take a step back before going in, think of it like going into the fire pit and its a good time to check in with yourself.

Fear, what does it do to us?

What does it do to our bodies? It stimulates the hormone cortisol to be released from our adrenal glands, which sit above the kidneys, providing our nervous system with the stimulated fight or flight response. Are we preparing to fight and speak up, or are we retreating or freezing? Of course some fear is perfectly natural and beneficial, as we are wild creatures adapting to change, but too much and its going to agitate our nervous system and deplete our immune system.

What does fear do to our emotions? Fear elicits a response from our gut brain, (we have 3 brains our head, heart and gut) which often negates the heart brain, so yes, our hearts our closing off and we might not be as compassionate and our rational mind is gone off for a vacation.

If your struggling after trying self care tips at home, then check out the below therapy solutions

Reiki – the most relaxing, gentle treatment there is, opening up the heart chakra, soothing your nervous system and providing insight and clarity tailored just for you precious beings. Most people share they feel more refreshed, clearer and connected after a treatment. Check out zen Ted below, getting his chakras aligned.

Reiki practitioner Bristol

Mbit coaching – connecting in with your three brains (head, heart and gut) and most importantly listening to your heart, opening it up and engaging again with your heart felt values. A guided coaching session to help you feel more connected to your self.

Fear is felt in the front of the gut and courage is felt in the back of the gut, which can help push through the fear, once the nervous system is balanced and we are clear on what we want to achieve and what our blocks are.

Listen to your gut

Bowen – another lush treatment to soothe your nervous system, small rolling moves made over specific points on fascia, (a web network surrounding our muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves), to unravel, unwind and soothe, mind, body and emotions. Trauma and tissue tension is released, providing deep relaxation. 

Bowen technique back care

Arnica – a beautiful homeopathic remedy from the arnica flower, below, that is gentle and incredibly potent at bringing you back into your heart, soothing from stress, shock, trauma, injury and also blood clots. It’s a heart remedy for the physical and emotional.

Hopefully that provided some useful tools and techniques in dealing with fear. Be in touch here if I can support further.

Healing with colour

Healing with colour

My experience of discovering my colour palette and using reiki healing

 

I have always loved using colour as a support, including staring off my healing journey at a colour therapy centre, when I was 14. I understood colour could carry a vibration, which could magically amend any energy that was blocked or not serving and magically restore an area that felt a bit hurty.

Colour therapy healing bottles

A few friends have had their ‘colours done’ meaning you go and see a colour stylist who suggests what season your skin tone/colourings suit. This can be, Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. Curiosity as the cat is me, I also wanted to explore what colours would support me best.

It was a totally beautiful experience of exploring colour and it made me reflect on how I have dressed and how it made me feel. For example baggy clothes can be used to cover ourselves up, when we don’t feel so nice, or don’t want to be seen, perhaps only wearing clothes with holes in if we don’t have much self respect or self-love.

Do you ever feel uncomfortable if you wear something that shows off too much skin? Or you might wear a bold colour if you want to make a statement and be seen? All of these are questions to ask yourself and reflect a little gently on how you use colour and clothing to express how we feel. Of course honouring clothing can perhaps be what’s comfortable and practical to fit into our lives.

What colour suits me best

This was me wearing some of my WOW colours, which you should wear close to your face. I was told that I am a deep berry summer and that lots of blues and reds are supposed to be good for me, what?! I never wear those colours, but actually when I got home, I realised I did have a lot of blues. Also I can wear purples, which is so good as I love purple! Other colours in my palette are primrose yellow, pinks and deep greens, but with no black! The idea is to wear 5 different colours, which actually is easier than you first think by the time you had socks, accessories, scarves etc.

Using colour to settle more into your body

Dressing and colours are simply another way to feel grounded and connected to your body and celebrating being as you are. They can boost your confidence and self esteem and give you support throughout the day.

I remember in one of my old jobs we had a dress up Thursday, we all worked from home and it was so fun to put on a pair of earrings, lippy, or a colourful scarf, so simple and yet can bring some fun and colour into our days.

I have really seen a shift in my choice of clothes and it feels good self-care practice and is so fun. It adds another layer of confidence and support to my days.

Colour and healing

Crystal healing caring for you

I love using colourful crystals in my reiki treatments and I place them over each chakra point (energy centre) to soothe and support. If a certain chakra is a bit blocked, of course the healing reiki energy and the crystal can unblock it, but it may also be a support to wear that colour or eat or drink that colour. For example your throat chakra is how we communicate to the world, where we share what we would like, we speak up for ourselves, its also our thyroid area which is part of our immune system. Wearing a blue scarf, a blue necklace, treating yourself to some blue flowers, or even a blueberry smoothie, can all aid supporting your throat chakra to feel its happiest.

I often recommend to clients using colour as a way to be playful, it could be doodling, colouring in, or even writing down some ideas on paper, as a way to get clear on a task, or to unburden it from our minds.

If you would like to know more about healing with colour, then do reach out here. I use colour to support in reiki treatments, which is a deeply relaxing treatment to align you emotionally & energetically.

House of colour was how I found my colour stylist.

Happy colouring.

What does it mean to listen to your body?

What does it mean to listen to your body?

Body awareness and listening to your body, can mean….

♥ Feeling connected and settled within your own skin suit.

♥ Listening to what is going on with your body, i.e where are the aches, tension, does something not feel right.

♥ Feeling grounded with who you are 🙂

♥ Feeling more grounded into your environment, ahhhh

♥ Recognising your limits and understanding when to stop when close to burn out.

♥ Honouring your energy patterns and cycles, i.e. some days we are more hungry, some days we are more tired.

♥ Feeling more in tuned with your period cycles

♥ big listening ears below 😉

Caring for you listening

The benefits of listening to your body?

♥ It is easier to relax as you are, into your skinsuit, with all your imperfections 😉

♥ It is easier to love yourself as you are and to honour your uniqueness

♥ You understand the areas more prone to illness ⇒ which means you can strengthen those areas.

♥ Better understanding of the areas more prone to illness = using them as a sign that you might be doing too much/managing stress.

♥ You feel clearer about what your body needs, knowing when to seek support.

♥ You are able to rest, be still and sleep more easily

♥ It may reduce the time and severity of acute illness

♥ Less likely to have emotions harbouring away in our muscle memory, which may lead to further complications physically.

♥ Better understanding of others

body awareness and listening

How I support you to feel more body aware and listen to your body 

Bowen Technique and reiki treatments

♥ Relaxation♥ Firstly taking time out to really allow your body and mind to have a recharge, a re-set and feel more at ease. Bowen is wonderfully soothing to all ailments and calms down the nervous system, so your body can feel relaxed.

♥ I check and feedback on postural habits, anything out of alignment, weaker or tension in a particular body area. We then work together to understand previous injuries/traumas, looking at your lifestyle and how you carry yourself into the world.

The therapies themselves can free up restrictions, re-align, reduce pain, soothe emotional stress and provide relaxation.

♥ After receiving a series of treatments, you then have the knowledge of which areas need strengthening and are encouraged to find an exercise you enjoy.

Reiki Bridport – Distance Reiki

What is distance reiki?

I share what distance reiki is, how it can help you and why it is actually so reassuring in these non-contact times to know that healing, relaxation and calmness are still here to support you.

If you are feeling a bit poopy and are in need of some support, read on –

I have a sense that if you are a squidgy, thinking human being in the pandemic, then you are feeling a lot, perhaps anxiety, fears about death/loved ones dying, feeling frustrated and restricted with all the lockdowns. Well firstly you are not alone, as there are many humans feeling the same way as you. If a physical, emotional or mental symptom is bothering you, preventing you from doing something, then its perfect to reach out for support.

It could be you have muscular pain but don’t want to go for any hands on treatment at this time (most alternative therapists are urgent appointments only in lockdown as of February 2021) you could have digestive complaints, insomnia, are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious and basically a bit p**** off at life.

Fear not my darlings as that’s where I come in, to listen openly and offer any guidance I can give you to completely relax as you are, with whatever it is that is bothering you. Lets see what solutions we can find preventing you enjoying your life.

This is me below, in my treatment room.

Distant reikiHow does it work?

I will ‘tune in’ to your energy field using a reiki symbol, I use oracle cards, crystals and ask for support and guidance from beings at a higher source or vibration, what?! These other unseen beings are usually named spirits, angels and guides. Surely no matter what you think of this intellectually, a load of beings worked together to support you, sending you light and loving energy at this time, has got to be a good thing. A lot of our support structures or go to supports might have fallen away during the pandemic due to the restrictions, so if you feel open to trying this out, then it can only lead to benefit. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.

Reiki healing oracle cards caring for you

What can I expect from a session?

We will have a chat online, via Skype or a preferred platform, then after the oracle card reading, you will kick back and relax somewhere warm, comfy and safe at home. You can select relaxing music if you prefer. I will be sending you reiki healing from my eco treatment room and placing crystals over your chakra points virtually. I have received both hands on and distant reiki myself and it is so relaxing and calming. I enjoy feeling each one of my chakra points come into a balance. Sometimes there is swirling and whirling of colours and thoughts, but it all settles into a nourishing refreshed feeling, like a good nap.

Some people do receive insights and information which may support to offer solutions. The whole session is around 1 hour and a bit and then I gently wake you and share any insights to support you. Benefits include stress relief, improvement to immunity, reduction in blood pressure, a sense of calm, clearing any blockages energetically and physically, a sense of purpose, clarity on a situation or in making a decision, this can come in the appearance of colours, images or words.

Long distance healing over chakra points

After the session guidance

To be super gentle on yourself for the rest of the day (always but in particular on this day) drink plenty of water, to support hydrating you from your energy repair session. Note any insights that come to mind as ways to support you improve your situation.

So, in a nutshell, if your struggling and remote healing ticks your boxes for practical reasons then do reach out. I would so happy to hear from you, feel free to ask a question if you are not sure if its suitable. As, I said relaxation and care is deeply needed at this time and yes we have had to be a bit creative here, but distance reiki isn’t a new creation for the pandemic, but a very valuable tool which can support you to be in a balance, mentally, emotionally and physically. If you feel like you would like a spring clean then its worth trying.

“I don’t understand how it works, but just seeing Emily and her treatment was very relaxing. The cards she uses are always so profound and touching. As for the reiki healing, I just love to relax and be sent warming energy, even my cat seems to enjoy it as she will come and sit with me and we relax together.” Jade

“Emily supported me through a difficult time in my relationship, I found her guiding reassurance clarifying and soothing” Beatrice

What are the benefits?

Benefits include relaxation, stress relief, improvement to immunity, reduction in blood pressure, a sense of calm, clearing any blockages energetically and physically, a sense of purpose, clarity on a situation or in making a decision.

Some people do receive insights and information, which may support to offer solutions, this can come in the appearance of colours, images or words.

Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including pregnant mothers, new-borns, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation.

Long distance healing over chakra points

How Does it Work?

I will ‘tune in’ to your energy field using a reiki symbol, I use oracle cards, crystals and ask for support and guidance from beings at a higher source or vibration, what?! These other unseen beings are usually named spirits, angels and guides. Surely no matter what you think of this intellectually, a load of beings working together to support you, sending you light and loving energy when your feeling a  bit poopy, has got to be a good thing.

When giving Reiki, practitioners have been shown to emit electo-magnetic or bio-magnetic energy from their hands. The frequencies of the energy emitted vary from one moment to the next; but many appear to correspond to those that medical researches have identified as being the optimum frequencies for simulating the healing process in tissues, bones and other body parts so far investigated.

Two ways in which these pulsing magnetic fields may stimulate repair of bone and other tissues include:

One theory is that energy healing works up by opening up the communication channels that enable cells in the body to talk to each other, and opening up the terrain through which cells are able to migrate to places where they are needed to initial repair or to fight diseases. Another is that these methods help to calm the person so their immune functions can operate smoothly.

What Happens in a Treatment?

I provide a health consultation, so I can listen and understand what is going on for you.
I tune into a higher source of energy, called universal energy. I ask for information and support for you. I start with an Oracle card reading, see image below. This is so informative at being given information from your angels, spirits and guides that are here to support you. Often the information is for your highest self, as we all want the best for you and path in life.
Reiki healing oracle cards caring for you
I then provide a reiki healing session, using crystals and universal energy from angels, spirits and guides that are here to help me and you, yeay! Crystals are placed on chakra points. Reiki is a non-invasive therapy, using mostly no touch or light touch.
This is a beautiful time to give yourself permission to relax, to open your mind and energy to information, that is needed to support you.
This treatment can be delivered in person, or online (long distance reiki). So you can find a nice warm and comfy spot to lie or sit in and I send you warm, beneficial healing, yippee.
The whole session lasts around 1 hour and a bit. I gently wake you and share any insights to support you.
