My journey on the path as a healer and channel began in the spring of the year 1999. I kept seeing the word “Reiki” in a kind of three-dimensional way. The word seemed to be popping out of the page at me; I can’t explain it in any other way. After about three months of seeing this new word I decided that it was time to investigate it. I found a Reiki Master and booked on a course to learn the first level. My two boys were young at the time – aged two and four, – and although I had my hands full being a mum, I knew that I needed to embark on the path of healing. Reiki is a hands-on healing technique which uses Universal Life Force energy to help the client start the alchemical process of self-healing. The healer is merely a channel, a conduit whereby the universal energy passes through the hands and through the aura and chakras of the recipient. I fell in love with this energy healing system and started my self- healing discovery.
I eagerly ate up everything I could learn about chakras, healing and energy. I remember when I received my attunements I kept seeing a white wolf. My teacher explained that this meant I would soon meet my healing guide. I was so excited and thrilled. I had grown up visiting spiritual churches and was aware of mediums such as Doris Stokes, so the thought of being in communication with my own guide was thrilling. I never found out the name of my first guide but he showed himself as a Chinese man with a long plait and moustache. He stayed with me as a guide until I studied for my Reiki Masters in 2000. He then stepped down and a female guide took his place. Her energy was softer and although I never heard her name, she showed herself as an Earth mother archetype.
I had always believed in the presence of angels and archangels and I had also read books on the subject. One of the first books I read was A Little Light On Angels, written by Diana Cooper. I had heard about angels leaving signs for us, like dropping white feathers for us to find. When I did my Reiki level two, I got up from having my last attunement and low and behold there was a fluffy white feather on my seat. My teacher explained to me that it was a sign that I would also start working with angels. How thrilled I was! I loved the thought of being able to communicate with them and I began to pray and meditate every day and soon enough I connected with an angelic guide called Jeremiah. He showed himself as a beautiful blue winged, blonde haired masculine figure. He worked with me during my sessions and communicated clairaudiently. I heard his soft voice inside my head and he began to give soothing messages to my clients. I have since established with him that he is from the blue ray of communication.
Over time I continued to develop my healing skills and bit by bit the angels and Divine Feminine consciousness would give me more and more techniques to work with. I found myself entering different states of consciousness through my meditation and healing, I felt like I was going into a different state – a state known as trance or overshadowing. My voice would alter when I spoke in this way and I could not remember what had been said but often it was reported back to me that the voice was soothing and loving. It sometimes felt masculine, so I knew it was Jeremiah, other times it felt feminine. Did I have a new guide? If so, she hadn’t introduced herself to me. I realized that I should study and join a group in order to develop this. I wanted to learn to alter this state and be in control rather than not know or understand what was going on. I knew that the guides working with me were pure light and I had nothing to fear. I always started my healing or meditation sessions with a prayer and asked for protection from Archangel Michael.
A lovely friend of mine, Sarah, told me that she had a song title called “Mary Me” and she was sure that I should write a song with that title. I then found myself effortlessly channeling beautiful words. I knew it wasn’t me as I wasn’t a writer. I was a dancer, a singer, a channel…but a writer – no way! I then began singing the song during inner child healing sessions, which were visited by Mother Mary. I could feel her presence during the song and many clients reported feeling being rocked in the arms of an angel. Many clients and meditation students would ask me if I had a recorded copy but something stopped me having the courage to record the enchanting song.
The next part of my journey I will share at another time with those who wish to read it. I hasten to add I went into a healing crisis and my life seemed to fall apart, a bit like “The Tower” in the tarot. Everything seemed to crumble around me. I stopped singing and seeing clients for six months but eventually I was ready to embark on the next part of my journey. So in February 2010 I found a spiritual group in North London that I joined and it was the highlight of my week. How I looked forward to my Tuesday sessions! By the second week I had mastered getting myself in and out of an altered state of consciousness and my healing angelic guide stepped in. She advised that she should be called “Love” as her real name would be unpronounceable to us humans. The amazing thing is that not only did she speak through me, she sang through me, too.
I have always loved to sing. I was in a church choir from the ages of 7-11 and the acclaimed Newham Girl Singers from ages 11-17. I went on to study musical theatre and later in my thirties I studied jazz. I had performed solo and in groups many times, so singing was what I was comfortable with. It was a passion, my “raison de vivre”. I was always happy when I was singing and Love knew this. She knew that it was part of my healing journey and that it was my purpose, however stubborn me was still not having it, I had lost my confidence and was not in the space to be singing again after a trying period of my life the year before. I had not sung for over six months. I was given this message by my guide, Love:
“You love to sing but are you singing right now, child? When you sing the angels rejoice and you will feel lighter. This is because singing balances the brain and takes you out of the constant chatter that you find yourself in. Completely losing yourself in song and sound is deeply healing to you and to others. Sing from within your heart and connect to each and every word that you share. The power of the words within the song tell stories so it is of the utmost importance that the songs you sing are positive, happy, healing and healthy to mind, heart and soul.”
So I decided to take Love’s advice and I began to sing from my soul once more. I sang in the car, in the shower, and I incorporated songs at the end of my hands-on healing sessions. I’d sing songs such as “Mary Me”, “Over the Rainbow”, “The Rose” or “Panis Angelicus” to name a few. I also found that singing was a good way for me to settle myself into my daily connection and meditation. I would then find myself asking questions and receiving answers, so I began to ask for help for others and myself.
Slowly I sang more and more for myself. I always tried to sing at the end of my hands-on healing sessions. If it was an inner child healing I’d sing in the middle of the session when “Mary Me” was required. Although I loved my one to one sessions, I was also a teacher at heart. I qualified as a schoolteacher in 1996 and had been running my own dance school since 1993. The angels, however, were calling me to spread the word of their healing and help, so I started holding angel meditations, workshops and weekends.
It was during a visit to Ibiza where I was to give healing sessions, meditations and a talk about angels at a healing day, raising money for charity. Everyone there was giving their time and gifts for free. It was during this trip that my healing work was about to change. As my client lay on the couch I realized that there was no healing coming through. I was connected to the angels but the light was not flowing through me. What was going on? I had done all my usual prayers and preparations; it had been about five minutes and still no healing light. Why were they not working with me? “Please angels what’s happening?’ I silently asked in my mind. “Sing, sing in the chakras, trust us and be guided by us child, we are with you.” So I started at the base chakra with the tone “Oo” and worked my way up to the crown with the tone “I”. At the end of the session I waited rather eagerly and nervously for the client’s response. I felt like she had been a bit of a guinea pig as I had never done anything like this before. I remember her words quite clearly. She said, “I did not feel a thing at the beginning of the session but when you started to sing, wow, I’ve never felt anything so powerful or amazing. It felt like I was flying with the angels and was taken to a healing sanctuary, I want to go back there.” So I guess that was the beginning of Angelic Harmony Therapy!
I also exchanged sessions with a local Spanish healer who was clairvoyant. I could not speak a word of Spanish, unfortunately, but he told me in his “Spanglish” that the higher up the chakras I sang, the closer he became to the Divine. At the sacral chakra he saw Mother Mary, at the third eye chakra he saw Archangel Raphael, and at the crown chakra he was in pure light in Heaven.
So I did as they asked and continued my healing work with a combination of all the techniques they had shared with me.
My next learning was to be In Denmark at a friend’s healing centre, where I was to be running an Angel weekend. Before the start of the weekend course I attended a trance group, it was here I was taken very deeply into an altered state and began to tone in a way I’d never done before. It sounded like a singing bowl with overtones and undertones. The people in the room said it really resonated with them. My angels had shared that the sound was now in my being and that I would be able to reproduce it during my sessions. and one day teach others to do the same. So I held some one to one sessions with the lovely Danish group and had some amazing feedback. One healer named Inger, whom later became a good friend, told me that she could feel the sound going into her cells and DNA, healing it a blueprint level. I was incredibly encouraged and excited, so once more I put the angels’ teaching into practice and continued to share healing sessions.
I also loved to receive healing from others and one of them was a gifted healer by the name of Oonagh. One day when I was due to see her, I reminded my son about receiving and manifestation and how it was our intention and vibration that drew things towards us. I told him that I would prove it, so I politely asked the angels for a gift. “Dear Angels, please may I receive a helpful, healing gift from you today.” I believed and I received. That afternoon Oonagh gave me a book by Diana Cooper about angels and ascension. Inside the front cover Diana had written my name and a message. “Thank you Angels, thank you Diana!” I am truly blessed and eternally grateful.
Diana Cooper’s book confirmed that I had linked the appropriate Archangels to the chakra system, Angelic Harmony Therapy.
So I attended festivals and began to share Angelic Harmony Therapy as a group healing, but I still had not written my manual. It was a project waiting to happen. Later on it certainly did.
Without saying too much about my personal life and how I got there, it is with gratitude in my heart that the next important link for me was with a gifted young healer named Maggie in St. John’s, Canada. We met through a lovely lady Amanda, whom organized a charity angel afternoon for me to share group Angelic Harmony Therapy. Maggie fell in love with the angelic singing. We became friends and began and I began to share and teach Maggie AHT. Maggie has been sent from the Angels to help me with the practical things, like websites, social media and graphics. She has been chosen by the Angels to be the first practitioner (other than myself) and also the first Angelic Harmony Therapy teacher in Canada.
And now the story continues with you, as you read this maybe you are drawn to have a session or become a practitioner. Let’s see how far Angelic Harmony’s wings can spread!
I hope from the deepest depths of my heart that you have enjoyed my story all my love
