When my girls were young and embarking on their first real Halloween, I realised something that really bothered me.
They were being taught that ghosts were scary.
As someone who has often seen and felt ghosts (psst… aka Angels.) I felt strange having Hollywood and pop culture try to convince my children that they should be really afraid of things that are usually unseen.
I was consistently scared growing up. Consistently.
I was positive someone was in my closet waiting for me to turn my back so they could stab me.
I watched way too many murder mysteries, but I also had a sense of something unseen, which my brain registered as scary.
I just didn’t know it was energy, or spirits… (or maybe myself visiting myself from the future which is something I love guiding my clients through. Another story for another time.)
So, early on I decided that I would help my children navigate with energy and learn to not see ghosts or spirits as Scary.
We are all spirits. We are all angels in physical bodies. Come to think of it, we are all ghosts.
Boo. (Couldn’t resist.)
However, saying that I will say that I have experienced ghosts in a number of ways.
This past September, for our 20th anniversary, my husband and I went to stay at the George and Pilgrim Hotel in Glastonbury UK.
Not only is it just across the street from the room we met in, and also around the corner from our first kiss, it is also one of the most haunted hotels in the UK.
It has 23 resident ghosts;
including a 16th century woman who smokes a pipe in the pub every morning (people smell the smoke at 6am),
a butler who will knock your drink over if he doesn’t like you, and a 15th century knight that sets off the CCTV every night at 2am.
As someone who is pretty sensitive to energy and am used to dealing with what I can’t see, I was curious about the experience.
The room we stayed in reportedly has a woman servant who walks across the room, opens a cupboard and then leaves each morning, but we didn’t see anything.
However, when we got back from our meal the night before I sensed someone down the hall, and silently told them my husband and I didn’t want to be disturbed.
The only interesting encounter we had was a knocking sound in the hall as we lay in bed the next morning.
We assumed someone was just knocking on the wall, but we later found that it was a common experience for this tapping to be heard up and down the hall, as it was the spirit of a dog who was playing with their owner, a little girl. They had both been hit by a carriage in the 17th century just outside the hotel and now play through the hallways. The tapping was the dog’s tail as he ran past.
It all felt a bit surreal. But not scary. These spirits weren’t bad or wishing ill (except for the butler who knocks over drinks!).
There is also the possibility that they are actually energy imprints from different times.
Sometimes an energy of someone gets so practised in a space, it gets imprinted and played over and over again.
I’m sharing these stories with you today in order to ask you a few questions:
I had to release my fear of the unknown and unseen when I truly embraced my energy healing work. There have been many times in a session that someone pops in to share a message or guides me to what a client needs. I’ve found over time that connecting to spirits or angels is something that truly fulfils me to my core, nothing seems more real and nothing feels more safe.
You are love. You are energy. You are a spiritual being.
And so is everything and everyone that has gone before us.
The past 18 months have been scary enough for many in the world. I think strengthening a trust in angels and the unseen forces in the world will serve everyone better than promoting fear of it.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on all of this, so please feel free to hit reply and let me know about your experiences or pop over to the Facebook group and share there.
Yes, I did say that in my healing work I often get spiritual nudges from guides. At first it was a shock, but now it’s second nature.
Clients receive an energy healing when they book any of my sessions, to help create flow and assimilate everything we’ve discussed in our time together.
You also get to take part in energy work when you join the BREATHING SPACE Membership program. Each Sunday I offer a group meditation and energy healing session to the members over there.
