‘Calling our spirit home’ is a practice my mother encouraged during different seasons, after journeys both internal and external, or after any injury had occurred. The body and the spirit exist like layers of light from a rainbow, spiraling within, surrounding, and the light energy extending beyond, the physical. Occasionally, such as during a viivd dream, or a fearful experience, or even as we change locations on the globe, parts of our spirit remain separated beyond our body. During an experience such as falling and slipping on ice, there can be a disjointed tilt to our bodies where the muscles and spine feel bruised, and the mind dazed. The spirit, like a blanket of light can ‘slip’ too, so to speak and wish to realign for the greatest healing with the being on all levels.
A simple exercise is to have someone you trust gently place their hands on your feet, and repeat your full name aloud three times. This can be a dear friend, a partner whom you share a kind and loving relationship presently with, or a light worker such as an energy healer, angel therapist practitioner, massage therapist, or reiki practitioner.
If you do not have a person near or with you, but have recently experienced trauma on one of the levels, such as emotionally, or if you are traveling across and around the globe and have been feeling ‘spacey’ lately, then take off your socks, place your feet on the ground and imagine that healthy roots like the roots of your favorite kind of plant, are stretching from your feet down into the fertile spring earth. At this time, when the visualization is clear, say your full name aloud three times.
Sometimes, through the transition of seasons, the leaving behind of the cocoon of winter for the rebirth of spring, I can feel most poignantly the need for a re-centering and grounding of my spirit into my physical being. Whenever I have practiced this simple exercise, I can feel the pieces of my wandering spirit returning to me. It has been grounding and centering after a move to a new home, a trip away for the weekend or winter, a painful breakup, or any physical injuries.
Today, and through each of the transitions, challenges, and rebirths of your being, I wish you angelic and earth spirit assistance, a connection with the Divine, and the full spectrum of your radiant self, to be present, grounded and whole
Aho, Om and Amen.
With light and respect,

*There are many instances in life where we as humans can experience a sense of powerlessness. Yet even in these instances, we are powerful. We are powerful beings in that we always have the choice of how we, as individuals, as expansive souls, choose to act or re-act. Instead of fixating our energy on what it is that makes us feel powerless, such as a a job opportunity or relationship that is not playing out in accordance with the script we have in our minds, we can choose to release our desire to control, and allow for an expansion of our energies, our life opportunities, and ultimately our happiness by choosing to reconnect with our ‘center’ and perceive life and the world on a grander scale.
With limited vision, I experience frustration with finances, daily tasks, or relationships, yet from my center I perceive the blessings in my life, the opportunities for growth, the choices I have made and can continue to make, to nurture authentic relationships. From my human eyes I see a town or an empty street, but from my center, I perceive my place on the planet, the energy that connects me to the continent to which I am standing, and spreads out on the lay lines of light that connect this continent with each other, and the water that flows between them all. Finding a balance between the duality of existing in this present reality, and honoring the greater reality we are all manifesting is a personal and global phenomenon we all must explore.
In the spirit of this exploration I offer this exercise and visualization with the assistance of Archangel Haniel who is the angel carrying messages and gifts that connect humanity with the ‘grace of god/dess’ and their own divine light.
“Dear God/dess, universal consciousness and my higher self please help me to connect to the the light that resides within my being and this earth. Please send me assistance through Archangel Haniel, and any other ascended master that I am most aligned with at this time, through clear signs, images and feelings to help me to perceive the grander scale of my life purpose, the gifts I have to offer to the planet, and the daily joy and difference I can make through my choices. Please help me to spread my wings of light, to expand my consciousness like a swan flying upwards into the sky, and truly ‘see’ that this planet holds incredible beauty, to which I am an integral contributor. Thank you, Amen and Om.”
Each human has divine light within them, and their daily choices reflect, encourage or shelter this light. When we return to our ‘center’ we feel encouraged to make healthful choices throughout our day and lives, that nourish our own brilliance, gifts and divine joy. From a centered place, researching options for a different job, letting go of an energetically draining relationship, or exploring a move to a new location all seem possible and manageable. The center of our being knows that hard work and determination, self kindness and self respect are all natural elements of our personality and higher soul.
May your find your center today, and should you need a helping hand, know that the guardian angels that surround you, and the earth beneath your feet, are all reaching towards you to hug, cradle and support you in being ‘centred’ and aligned for your own, as well as the planets, highest vibration of joy.
With light and respect for your journey on this earth,
