My spiritual awakening coincided with a period of darkness in my life. The two were connected, and yet distinctly separate. As I navigated a diagnosis of severe post natal anxiety, I also navigated an abrupt spiritual awakening.
It was incredibly challenging at times. I had lots of help and support, and will be forever grateful to my team of family, friends, and trusted health professionals. I am also incredibly grateful to my divine support team of Guardian Angels, Archangels and Ascended Masters.
My diagnosis meant that I was experiencing moments of intense fear. Panic attacks that lasted for hours were crippling, and left me shallow breathing, unable to sleep, and utterly exhausted. At the same time, I was seeing things, hearing things, and dreaming things in overload. I had always had a strong sixth sense, and could list of dozens of unusual/paranormal experiences from my childhood, but now out of the blue, I was experiencing these things every day-wake and sleep, and had no idea what to do or how to switch it off. This was making me feel more afraid, and of course a vicious cycle resulted.
My recovery included many different aspects, a balance of traditional medicine, anti anxiety medication, visits to a psychologist, and regular check ups with my GP. I also began to see a Kinesiologist and a homeopath, and to research and explore my spiritual gifts.
My recovery was slow. I took my medication for 12 months, during this time and afterwards I also continued to make other lifestyle changes that would support me feeling safe, calm and confident living without the need for medication.
One aspect that had a profound positive impact on my long term recovery was meeting my Guardian Angels and the Archangels.
Through a regular of meditation and reading lots of books by one of my spiritual mentors (Doreen Virtue), I got to know my Guardian Angels and the Archangels, and had profound healing experiences as a result.
Six years later, I now work with people experiencing a spiritual awakening. Ive made a list below of some of the key things that helped me, and that I now recommend to my clients. Here are my first five helpful tips for experiencing a spiritual awakening with the help of the Angels:
- Get to know Archangel Michael- Archangel Michael is known as the protector, who has the task of ridding the world of fear. The Archangels are non-denominational light beings, who are here to help all humanity and bring peace and love to the world. Archangel Michael will help ANYONE who asks. There is no time, space or distance in that dimension, and the Archangels can be with a multitude of people at the same time. Call on Archangel Michael to feel instantly safe, or to clear your mind of worrying thoughts and anxiety. He can also help you to see your true life purpose, to feel confident and courageous, and protect and shield yourself and your family from lower energies. Pretty handy if you are feeling fear or anxiety AND being visited by ghosts.
- Call on Archangel Raphiel- The healing Archangel. Archangel Raphael has a wonderful energy that emanates hope, calm and reassurance. You can call on him for all aspects of healing, including physical, spiritual and past life healing. He can help guide you to the right healing modalities (traditional AND alternative) to support your healing and spiritual journey.
- Let Archangel Jophiel keep you positive- Archangel Jophiel is the Archangel of beauty, positivity and joy! Call on her to help bring beauty back into your life, to see the beauty in all things, and to connect with the joy in your heart. She can help you clear your space and spring clean, and guide you on Angelic Feng Shui tips to raise the vibration of your home or work space! She was wonderful for me when I had my home cleared of earth bound spirits, and now helps me when I do space clearing for my clients. Spiritual awakening can be confusing, and unsettling. Remembering to bring joy into your heart through this experience keeps you connected to your blessings and feel less fear.
- Archangel Haniel to help you discover your gifts- one of Archangel Haniel’s specialties is helping people awaken to their intuitive gifts of Clairvoyance. She has a strong feminine energy that is connected to the moon, and is very empowering if you have had a period of low self confidence. She can help you trust your psychic gifts, and trust your messages. Practice using an Angel Card deck, I recommend any of Doreen Virtue’s decks, and found the Angel Therapy deck (and book) to be a great support to a spiritual awakening and healing journey.
- Meet your Guardian Angels- My Guardian Angels have helped me along my journey more times than I could list here today. I have met three of my guardian Angels, and also have three Ascended Masters who work with me regularly and support my life purpose. Peter, Selina and Jonah are my Guardian Angels, and Selina helped me amazingly during my spiritual awakening. At one point when I was very sick, my psychic and energetic barriers were very weak, which meant that I was feeling and being visited by all sorts of earth bound energies (ghosts) at all times of the day and night. Selina came to me in my dreams, and showed me how I could use crystals to strengthen my energetic boundaries short term. She showed me exactly which crystals to use, and she showed me that I had a cat acting as my spirit animal to stand guard as I slept, and protect my dreams. FYI earth bound spirits are nothing to be afraid of, but its nice to have boundaries on when we choose to be contacted by them!
There are many other ways that the Angels have helped me through my spiritual awakening and journey, but these five points have resulted in the most profound breakthroughs and miracles in my own life.
